WASHINGTON, PA, June 5, 2024  — Shuffled to fourth after taking the early lead, Youmakemyheartsing found the Lightning Lane in time and captured Wednesday’s feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $12,000 Claiming Handicap.

Youmakemyheartsing shot to the point from post 7 for Mike Wilder, but as the field turned for home, he had no path outside. Wilder guided the 9-year-old Some Heart Throb-You Make Me Smile gelding to the winning route inside, and he poured through to score in 1:53. Kilowatt Kid N, who also lacked racing room, was second, 1/2 length back, with Roll With JR third.

Kevin Johnson trains Youmakemyheartsing, who now has banked $285,065 in his career, for Rocky Wingfield.

Shawn Johnston, Dave Palone, Ridge Warren, Ronnie Wrenn and trainer Dirk Simpson each enjoyed a double on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday, first post 12:45 PM.

The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) is a nonprofit organization that represents the interests of approximately 700 Standardbred trainers, drivers, caretakers and owners at The Meadows. In addition to providing horses to race at The Meadows, MSOA administers such member-centric services as health insurance and retirement programs for horsemen and horsewomen.
