A narrow loser of his last two, Perlucky turned the tables in Monday’s $20,000 Open 1 Handicap Trot at The Meadows, as he scored an in-command, front-end victory in a career best 1:54.2 over a ‘good’ surface.

Those two recent defeats were by a combined margin of less than a length after tough trips. There were no such issues Monday, however, as Perlucky easily captured the point for Dave Palone and defeated the pocket-sitting Final Breath by three-quarters of a length. A hard-used Icanflylikeanangel, who was out at the three-eighths and never picked up cover, persevered for show.

Ron Burke trains Perlucky, a five-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding who now sports a career bankroll of $378,159, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.

Mike Wilder piloted four winners and Palone three on the 13-race card. After multiple carryovers, the Super Hi-5 was hit, returning $16,129.04 for the single winning ticket.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday, when the program features a $5,000 total-pool guarantee in the Pick 4 (races 3-6). First post is 1:05 p.m.
