WHHC Leg Spices Meadowlands Saturday Night

Friday, February 24, 2017

  Racing at The Meadowlands on Saturday, February 25 is an interesting mix of a dozen pacing races. Included among them are four divisions of the second leg of the popular “Race for the G-Notes” series made ultra-competitive by the ensuing scramble for the coveted ten positions in next week’s $15,000 final. 

  

The overnight feature is race eleven where the red-hot Patty Harmon sends her streaking Jacksrluckytoo in pursuit of his fourth win of the new season for owner John Marvin, Jr. Known for a powerful closing kick, Jacksrluckytoo shows final quarters in 27 flat or faster, including a mind-numbing 25.3 in a February 4 win. Jimmy Marohn, Jr has driven Jacksrluckytoo in many of his Meadowlands starts and has developed a keen sense for just how to position his mount and when to hit the “turbo-charge” button to get the job done. 

  

It is a move up in class for Jacksrluckytoo and he’ll face stiff competition led by Ron Burke’s rugged vet Ontario Success and a pair of Heidi Rohr trainees in Calvin B and Bettor Rock On N.  

  

The big news in the grandstand is another leg of the World Harness Handicapping  Challenge (WHHC) with four seats in the April 29 final up for grabs. It’s also “Scratch & Win” night with prizes ranging from $2 to $500 plus live hot dogs and free popcorn!  Plus enter the 2nd chance drawing to win $100!  

  

Post time is 7:15 p.m.
