Racing at her fourth different track in as many starts, Show Runner had little trouble adjusting to The Meadows as she rolled to an easy front-end victory in Wednesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace.

Show Runner performed recently at Running Aces, The Meadowlands and Harrah’s Philadelphia, finishing first or second on each occasion. Her success continued on Wednesday, zipping to the lead for Tony Hall and scoring in 1:51.2. The pocket-sitting Stucklikeglue was two lengths back in second, with Macharoundtheclock third.

Mike Watson trains Show Runner, a five-year-old daughter of Little Steven-Peace Runner who boosted her career bankroll to $257,850, for A Piece Of The Action LLC.

Dave Palone collected seven victories, including three for trainer Ron Burke, on the 14-race card — nothing unusual there for harness racing’s “winningest” driver. But the payoffs on those winners were surprising. While Palone’s horses usually are heavily supported at the windows, his seven Wednesday winners returned a combined $64.60 to win. That’s an average of just less than $9.23 per winner — the equivalent of 7-2 odds.

Friday’s program at The Meadows features a pair of stakes for three-year-old colt and gelding pacers: a $183,616 Pennsylvania Sires Stake and a $60,000 PA Stallion Series event. First post is 6:55 p.m.
