Parkhill Lancelot, a winner of two Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots preliminary events early in his career, followed the first-over cover of Media Buzz before brushing by him in the lane to capture the 2019 opening-day feature, a $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot, on Wednesday (Jan. 2) at The Meadows.

Parkhill Lancelot trotted patiently in fourth until Jim Pantaleano tipped him off the cones to follow cover. The seven-year-old Muscle Mass-Harlequin Seelster gelding swept by Media Buzz in mid-stretch and downed him by three-quarters of a length in 1:56.4 over a good surface. Jeffery P rallied for show.

John Melsheimer trains Parkhill Lancelot, who soared over $300,000 in career earnings, for the Mel Rose Stable.

Pantaleano collected four wins and Dan Rawlings three on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday (Jan. 4), with first post at 1:05 p.m.
