Washington, PA --- Barn Girl thwarted the late challenge of Ready Any Time and went on to capture Wednesday’s (June 13) $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Trot at The Meadows, her eighth win in 11 starts this year and the 50th victory of her career.

Barn Girl posted her 50th career victory.

Barn Girl endured a demanding opening quarter -- three wide in :27.1 -- before reaching the front, a trip that could have made her vulnerable. But in characteristic fashion, she dug in for Aaron Merriman when Ready Any Time loomed boldly and defeated her by three-quarters of a length in 1:54. The pocket-sitting Expose Yourself finished third.

Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $683,668, for Renee Bercury. It was one of four wins on the 13-race program for Merriman.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features a pair of rich total-pool guarantees -- $12,500 for the Pick-4, $5,000 for the Pick-5 -- as well as a $2,404.55 carryover in the day’s first superfecta and a $2,517.70 jackpot in the final-race Super High 5. First post is 1:05 p.m.
