Washington, PA --- Glidinthruparadise kept to her task -- even when it seemed she was racing for second -- and nailed the 3-5 Expose Yourself in the shadow of the wire in Wednesday’s (May 2) $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Seeking her fourth straight victory, Expose Yourself appeared to put the field away with a blistering :27.3 third quarter. But the 5-1 Glidinthruparadise, still chasing from the two hole, dug deep for trainer/driver Brian Zendt and downed Expose Yourself by a length in 1:54, matching her career best. Dreamsteeler finished third.

Lisa Dunn owns Glidinthruparadise, a 5-year-old daughter of Yankee Glide-Chowda who now boasts $173,408 in career earnings.
