Crazolo quarter-poled to the lead and had no serious challenges thereafter in capturing his second straight victory in Monday’s $15,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life Trot at The Meadows.

Crazolo dropped into an optional claiming handicap to get last week’s win and was so impressive that he was sent off the 9-5 favourite despite the jump in class. Away third, Crazolo brushed to the lead for Jim Pantaleano and easily held off the first-over Tamarind by 3/4 lengths in 1:54.4. Call To Post rallied from last for show.

Paul Corey conditions Crazolo, a four-year-old Crazed-Stroke Play gelding who vaulted over $100,000 in career earnings, for Michelle Yanek.

Dave Palone, Mile Wilder and Pantaleano each piloted three winners on the 14-race card.


On Tuesday, March 31, the live card at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will feature two total pool guarantees —- a $20,000 guarantee for the Pick 5 and a $5,000 guarantee for the Pick 4. Both are offered as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative.

The Meadows added the “instant” Pick 5 guarantee after Monday’s Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a two-day carryover of $5,148.04, while the $5,000 Pick 4 guarantee is a regular feature each Monday and Tuesday.

Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (races 4-7) and Pick 5 (races 10-14) 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 Tuesday’s program is 12:55 PM.
