Barn Girl thwarted the late challenge of Ready Any Time and went on to capture Wednesday’s (June 13) $20,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred Trot at The Meadows, her eighth win in 11 starts this year and the 50th victory of her career.

Barn Girl endured a demanding opening quarter — three-wide in 27.1 — before reaching the front, a trip that could have made her vulnerable. But in characteristic fashion, she dug in for Aaron Merriman when Ready Any Time loomed boldly, prevailing by three-quarters of a length in 1:54. The pocket-sitting Expose Yourself finished third.

Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a six-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $683,668, for Renee Bercury. It was one four wins on the 13-race program for Merriman.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday (June 16), when the card features a pair of rich total-pool guarantees — $12,500 for the Pick 4 and $5,000 for the Pick 5 — as well as a $2,404.55 carryover in the day’s first Superfecta and a $2,517.70 jackpot in the final-race Super High 5. First post is 1:05 p.m.
