Alesha “The Hoosier Hotshot” Binkley and Luminosity roared from the pocket and brushed through the lane to capture Friday’s $8,100 leg of the Great Legs Amateur Driving Association (GLADA) Series at The Meadows.

Stephen “You’re Never Too” Oldford and A Royal Line threw down a swift 1:26.3 three-quarters but couldn’t shake Binkley, who blew by in the lane to score in 1:56.2. John Sikaris (Fomor) rallied for second, 1-1/4 lengths back, while Oldford saved show. Tom “Mayhem” Svrcek (Criteria) completed the superfecta.

Ron Burke trains Luminosity, a 10-year-old Cash Hall-Brighten My Way gelding, who now boasts a career bankroll of $870,261, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

In Friday’s co-feature, a $12,000 conditioned pace, K Ryan Bluechip was three-wide through a :26.2 opening panel but remained strong late to prevail in 1:50.4 for Dave Palone, trainer Mike Palone and owners J.R. Ryan, Stephen Ronay, Lone Wolf Stable and Collin Ryan. The eight-year-old Art Major-Fool That I Am gelding lifted his career earnings to $577,407.

Palone collected five wins and Burke had four on the 13-race program. Aaron Merriman also enjoyed a big day with three victories.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday when the program offers a $59,639.06 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. Also featured are all eight $25,000 Pennsylvania Fairs Championships. The first two finals are non-wagering events that begin at 12:15 p.m. while the pari-mutuel portion of the card kicks off at 12:45 p.m.
