WASHINGTON, PA  May 7, 2021 -- Joey zipped to the lead from post 5 and thwarted a pair of late challenges to capture Friday's $17,600 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Hammered down to 1-2 in the wagering, Joey was threatened inside and outside in the stretch. But the 6-year-old Yankee Glide - Jodie's Jayme gelding responded for driver Brian Zendt, holding off the Lightning Lane charge of the pocket-sitting Mind Yown Business by three-quarters of a length in 1:55 over a sloppy surface. Rising MVP. Who loomed menacingly outside, settled for show.

Leslie Zendt conditions Joey, who extended his lifetime bankroll to $135,133, and owns with Bill Zendt.



Dave Palone and Mike Wilder each collected three wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Saturday when the 12-race program features a $1,232.46 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 PM.
