Celebrity Bugatti rolled to his second straight series victory in Tuesday’s third leg of the Ken Weaver Memorial Trot at The Meadows. Marty De Vie captured the other $15,000 third-leg split in the event for three and four-year-old colts, horses and geldings.

Celebrity Bugatti was away second for Dan Rawlings, but after a sluggish :29.4 opening quarter, Rawlings thought the point might be a better place for the four-year-old son of Muscle Massive-Dover Miss. Celebrity Bugatti had little trouble holding the lead, scoring in 1:58.2 over a “good” surface. Cantad Kid was second, with the first-over Explosive Leggs third.

Johnny Yoder trains Celebrity Bugatti and owns with Herman Hagerman and Rawlings.

In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot, Bessie rebounded from a pair of subpar efforts to triumph for Jim Pantaleano in 1:55.3 Princess Pablano raced well first over but fell a nose short, while early leader Cowgirl Hall saw her three-race winning streak snapped when she finished third.

Rick Clapper conditions the five-year-old daughter of Equinox Bi-Cantabs Chorine, who extended her career bankroll to $215,464, for Paula Clapper, Umholtz Racing Stable and Kennedy Sports Corp.

Aaron Merriman piloted three winners on the 15-race card.
