Absent from The Meadows winners’ circle for an uncharacteristically long spell, Jans Luck made amends Thursday when she captured the $25,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace in 1:51.3 - equaling the track record for older mares.

Jans Luck had won 21 races - most of them at The Meadows - over the past two seasons but hadn’t triumphed since March 19, an unusual drought for her. That ended Thursday when Dave Palone hustled her to the pocket, then made a decisive quarter-pole move. She defeated Natalie by a length, with Streetcarnamedsire a non-threatening third.

Her mile, featuring matching 55.4 front and back halves, equaled the mark established by Always Cam in 2004.

Ron Burke trains Jans Luck, a five-year-old daughter of Camluck-Jans Scooter who pushed her career bankroll to $667,732, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, JJK Stables and M1 Stable.

Palone, who recently joined the 13,000-win club, enjoyed seven victories - four for Burke - on the 15-race card.
