Each protagonist had been hard used before their head-to-head duel unfolded. Glidinthruparadise needed to reel off a :27 first quarter to make the front for trainer/driver Brian Zendt while Expose Yourself, saddled with post nine, found an early seat fourth before launching her uncovered bid. That set the stage for their confrontation in the lane, which Glidinthruparadise won by three-quarters of a length in a career-best 1:53.2. Dreamsteeler earned show.

Lisa Dunn owns Glidinthruparadise, a 5-year-old daughter of Yankee Glide-Chowda who won her second straight and now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $184,408.

Tyler Stillings fashioned a training/driving double while Tony Hall, Aaron Merriman and Zendt each collected a pair of wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features a $168,237 PA Sires Stake for 3-year-old filly trotters, a $7,500 total-pool guarantee for the Pick-4 (races four-seven) and a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick-5 (races eight-12). First post is 1:05 p.m.
