Heart On My Sleeve stalked Remember The Beach from the pocket, then blew by him in the lane to capture Friday’s $10,000 second leg of the Wilbur Zendt Memorial Pace for three- and four-year-old horses, colts and geldings at The Meadows. With a win and a second in the two preliminary legs, Heart On My Sleeve assured himself a spot in the $15,000-added championship on March 19.

Remember The Beach cut a comfortable :57.1 half but was out-tripped by Heart On My Sleeve, who scored for Dave Palone in 1:54.1. Amazon, a 53-1 bomb, rallied for second, 1-1/2 lengths back, while Remember The Beach settled for show.

Ron Burke trains the winner, a four-year-old Bettors Delight - Odds On Lassomyhrt gelding, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.

Friday’s card also featured a pair of $16,200 Open Handicap events. In the pace, Windsong Leo made it three straight by blistering the mile in 1:50.1, the fastest performance this year at The Meadows. Palone, Burke, Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and Collura all enjoyed another win. The nine-year-old Jeremes Jet - Windsong Goldie gelding lifted his lifetime bankroll to $710,307. Whos Better and Carolina Beach completed the ticket.

Ladys Dude overtook Icanflylikeanangel with a first-over move to win the trot for Tony Hall and continue the big day for trainer Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi and Johnny Yoder, The 10-year-old Victory Sam - Ladys Star gelding now has earned $870,858. Rising MVP finished third.

Burke finished with four victories and Palone three on the 13-race card.

Live harness racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday when the program features a $1,105.42 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 p.m.
