Cash N Chips alertly followed cover, then roared wide through the stretch to score in her divisional prelim for the Margaret Provost Memorial Trot at The Meadows on Thursday (April 1).

Night Flyer K took the other $12,500 opening-leg division in the series for three-year-old trotting fillies. The event honours the memory of longtime owner/breeder Margaret Provost.

Cash N Chips was fifth when Hunter Myers moved her off the cones to follow the first-up Kommin On Strong. The daughter of Cash Hall-Sugar N Chips was by far the strongest in the lane, notching the win—her second straight—in 1:58.2 over a “good” surface.

Early leader Treasure Gems K was second, three-quarter lengths back, while Wonmyheart Hanover finished fourth-placed-third. Steve Bush trains the winner and owns with Alvira Fassett.

Night Flyer K was sitting a loose pocket up the backside when the leader, Iglare AM, made an unforced break. Night Flyer K made the most of the opportunity, forging well ahead and defeating Hip Hop Gracie by five lengths in 1:59 for Dave Palone.

Iglare AM recovered to earn show. Norm Parker conditions the daughter of Winning Mister-Soaring Flight for Norm Parker Stable, George Romanoff and Terry Brewer.

In the $14,600 Open Handicap Pace, Windsong Leo worked a leisurely :57 opening half, then rolled home in 1:52.4 for his fourth consecutive victory. Palone piloted the nine-year-old Jeremes Jet-Windsong Goldie gelding, who pushed his career bankroll to $717,607, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura. Whos Better and Smooth Lou completed the ticket.

Palone collected three wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Friday (April 2) when the 13-race program features a $3,013.44 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5.
