Mandys Mattjesty opened a daylight lead, then held on late to notch her second straight victory in Monday’s second leg of the Winter Claiming Series for $20,000 claiming filly and mare pacers at The Meadows.

Mandys Mattjesty zipped to the front for Dave Palone and enjoyed a three-length lead at the top of the lane. But the six-year-old daughter of His Mattjesty-Astra Destiny was all out to hold off the late charge of Highland Rockstar, another Burke trainee, who fell a nose short. Destinys Desire earned show. The winning time was 1:53.4

Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Larry Karr and Phillip Collura campaign Mandys Mattjesty, who has been ahead at every pole in three consecutive starts.
