Washington, PA---Fueled by a four-day carryover, The Meadows Pick-5 pool topped out at $96,768.71 before players hammered Wednesday’s (Feb. 13) wager.
 
Each of Wednesday’s Pick-5 legs produced a heavily supported winner — with the longest price at 2.90-1 — resulting in 113 winning tickets (assuming all tickets were played for 50 cents). The payoff was $855.75 for a winning 50-cent ticket.

In Wednesday’s feature, an $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot, Victory Is Coming sat patiently in the pocket, then shot the Lightning Lane for Mike Wilder to defeat the tiring leader, Magic Wheel, by a half-length in 1:55. Princess Pablano was third.
 
Ammon Hershberger trains Victory Is Coming, a 7-year-old daughter of Victory Sam-Norse Comer, who has won 42 races and $446,110 in her career, for Betty Shaw and John Red Shaw.
 
Dave Palone and Wilder each drove four winners on the 15-race card.
