STILL full of fight after a moderate 57.1-second half, Jeffery P thwarted the challenge of Keystone Chaos to register his 13th victory this year.
Jeffery P completed the win in yesterday’s Preferred Handicap Trot at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows.
When Keystone Chaos moved uncovered from third to look Jeffery P in the eye, the six-year-old responded willingly to Dave Palone’s urging and downed Keystone Chaos by a length-and-a-half.
Just Like Magic was a ground-saving third.
The son of Full covered the mile in 1:53.2.
Ron Burke trains Jeffery P, which lifted his bankroll to $345,961, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.
Aaron Merriman, Palone and Burke each enjoyed a treble on the 12-race card.
