It was another day at the office for Barn Girl, as she rolled to her 11th victory in 15 starts this season in Wednesday’s (Aug. 1) $20,000 Fillies and Mares Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Barn Girl has finished first or second in each of those 15 outings.

Assigned the outside post position as usual, Barn Girl had little trouble grabbing the point for Aaron Merriman, thwarted the first-over bid of her stablemate, Delcrest Magicstar, and downed the pocket-sitting Cincinnati Miss by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:54.1. Whambamthankumaam rallied for show.

Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a six-year-old daughter of Cash Hall and Turquoise Sweetie who extended her career bankroll to $716,158 and her lifetime winning percentage to 51.5, for Renee Bercury.

Merriman collected three wins on the 13-race card while Tyler Stillings fashioned an unusual “double-triple” — three driving victories and three training victories.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday (Aug. 4), with a special Hambletonian Day post time of 12 noon.
