Washington, PA — Touchamatic collected her sixth straight victory while Party At The Banks extended her winning streak to three in Tuesday’s (May 28) co-features at The Meadows.

Touchamatic ripped off five straight at Northfield before putting her streak on the line in the $18,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace. The 5-year-old daughter of American Ideal-Perfect Touch released Medusa to the lead early, then blew by her in the lane and defeated her by 2-1/2 lengths in a swift 1:50.1. Magic Forces completed the ticket.

Aaron Merriman piloted Touchamatic, who pushed her career bankroll to $282,662, for trainer Bill Bercury and owner Renee Bercury.

Party At The Banks had a more demanding trip in the $20,000 Open Handicap Trot, parked every step from post 8. But she moved powerfully late for Dave Palone and drew off to down 42-1 long shot Tequila Talking by 3-3/4 lengths in 1:54.3, with Rising MVP third.

The 5-year-old daughter of Break The Bank K-Beach Party As has been so dominant during her streak that her combined victory margin is 11 lengths. It was one of four wins for Palone on the 13-race card.

Ron Burke trains Party At The Banks, who now boasts lifetime earnings of $190,423, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday (May 29), when the program features a pair of carryovers — $2481.02 in the Pick 5 (races 2-6), $357.44 in the final-race Super Hi-5.
