Bessie pocketed Classical Annie from the gate and kept her there throughout the mile as she captured the $15,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot at The Meadows on Tuesday, December 12.

Bessie endured a minor first-over challenge from Dreamsteeler for Jim Pantaleano, and maintained control when confronted late by Classical Annie to win by three-quarters lengths in 1:56.4 over a “good” surface. Dirty Secret was third.

Rick Clapper trains Bessie, a six-year-old daughter of Equinox Bi-Cantab’s Chorine, who now boasts $367,097 in career earnings, for Paula Clapper, Umholtz Racing Stable and Kennedy Sports Corp.

On Wednesday, December 13, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer a $20,000 total-pool guarantee for its Pick 5 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative. The Meadows added the “instant” guarantee after Tuesday’s Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a two-day carryover of $6,469.87.

In addition, Wednesday’s card includes a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4, a regular feature of each program at The Meadows.

Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (races 4-7) and Pick 5 (races 8-12) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.

First post for Wednesday’s program is 1:05 PM.
