Provost Memorial Trot underway :: Harnesslink

WASHINGTON, PA – April 1, 2021 — Cash N Chips alertly followed cover, then roared wide through the stretch to score in Thursday’s Margaret Provost Memorial Trot at The Meadows. Night Flyer K took the other $12,500 opening leg division in the harness racing series for 3-year-old filly trotters. The event honors the memory of longtime owner/breeder Margaret Provost.

Cash N Chips was fifth when driver Hunter Myers moved her off the cones to follow the first-up Kommin On Strong. The daughter of Cash Hall-Sugar N Chips was by far the strongest in the lane, notching the win — her second straight — in 1:58.2 over a “good” surface.

Early leader Treasure Gems K was second, 3/4 lengths back, while Wonmyheart Hanover finished fourth-placed-third. Steve Bush trains the winner and owns with Alvira Fassett.



Night Flyer K was sitting a loose pocket down the backside when the leader, Iglare AM, made an unforced break. Night Flyer K made the most of the opportunity, forging well ahead and defeating Hip Hop Gracie by 5 lengths in 1:59 for Dave Palone. Iglare AM recovered to earn show. Norm Parker conditions the daughter of Winning Mister-Soaring Flight for Norm Parker Stable, George Romanoff and Terry Brewer.



In the $14,600 Open Handicap Pace, Windsong Leo worked out a leisurely 57 opening half, then rolled home in 1:52.4 for his fourth consecutive victory. Palone piloted the 9-year-old Jereme’s Jet-Windsong Goldie gelding, who pushed his career bankroll to $717,607, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura. Whos Better and Smooth Lou completed the ticket.

Palone collected three wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Friday when the 13-race program features a $3,013.44 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5.
