Rebounding from last week’s uncharacteristic break, Perlucky exploited a pocket trip and captured the $17,900 Open Handicap Trot in a career-best 1:52.4 on Tuesday (June 30) at The Meadows.

Perlucky shot to the lead for Dave Palone and stretched out Icanflylikeanangel through a demanding :26.3 opening panel before releasing him. The five-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding kicked by the vulnerable leader in mid-stretch and downed him by a neck, with longshot Tequila Talkin third.

Ron Burke trains Perlucky, who extended his lifetime bankroll to $370,066, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.

Mike Wilder and Palone each collected three wins on the 15-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday (July 1) when the 15-race program features a $6,400.77 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $1,357.00 carryover in the Early Pick 5 (Race 2). First post is 12:45 p.m. (EDT).
