HANDY performer Jeffery P overwhelmed a distinguished field at The Meadows last night, cruising to a career-best 1:52.1 victory in the Open Handicap Trot.
Jeffery P quarter-poled to the top for Dave Palone and began drawing off past the half.
From there, the only question was how much his winning margin would be…the answer — five lengths ahead of early leader Icanflylikeanangel, with Lady’s Dude third.
Ron Burke trains Jeffery P, a six-year-old son of Full Count and Betty Jean, which vaulted over $200,000 in earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.
Tony Hall collected three wins on the 13-race card — including a pair for trainer Scott Betts — raising his total to nine for the three-day race week.
