Break The Bank K needed a pair of moves to make the front, but he had enough in his account to capture Monday’s $22,500 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Break The Bank K won the 2010 Breeders Crown at three but missed all of last year with injuries. He’s rounding into top form now with three wins in his last five starts, including the Earl Rowe Silver Division at Georgian Downs.

In Monday’s Preferred Handicap, the son of Revenue S-American Misty dropped in third for Dave Palone but was out and moving again at the quarter, wresting the lead from Rembrandt Spur. They raced that way through the wire, with Break The Bank K scoring by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:54.2. Heza Challenger was third.

Rich Gillock trains Break The Bank K, who extended his lifetime bankroll to a hefty $1,094,086, for owner/breeder Bob Key. With the place purse, Rembrandt Spur vaulted over $500,000 in career earnings.

Palone drove four winners on the 16-race card while Tony Hall and Mike Wilder each enjoyed a driving triple. With those victories, Palone lifted his career win total to 15,122 as he chases Herve Filion’s North American record of 15,180.
