Big Action Weekend at The Meadowlands

Friday, December 8, 2017

  Friday Night Carryovers 

The Meadowlands has a couple of good reasons to take a hard look at Friday's card with a $17,117.45 carryover in the Pick 5 (races 2-6) that will likely result in an inflated pool with takeout negated to around $115,000. It is a fifty cent base wager. 

Another attraction is the last race 20 cent Super Jackpot Hi 5 with the jackpot pool now over $30,000. 

You may access free program pages for these wagers compliments of The Meadowlands and Trackmaster. 


Saturday Night at The Meadowlands 

The Meadowlands' Saturday night card offers a dozen pari-mutuel puzzlers for those horseplayers questing for value. The fields are solid in size and quality with the better classes for pacers and trotters alike being concentrated on the Saturday card.  

Jody Reidel's Can Do is a contender in the fifth race $13,000 conditioned trot. Can Do has been in Jody's barn for some time now and the 8-year-old shows up pretty much every week to do his work. In 39 starts this season Can Do has won 7 and been on the board in 21 of them for earnings of $83,325 and only recently crept past the half million dollar mark in career earnings. He'll begin from post four on Friday with Anthony Napolitano in the sulky. 

Always At My Place (PP #4) will look to repeat in the pacing feature for the top trainer/driver team of Ron Burke and Yannick Gingras in the $17,500 third race. Gingras floated Always At My Place from the gate, ground to the front past a 26.4 opening quarter then set an honest pace using a 27.3 close to hold Art History at bay in 1:50.4. Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura share ownership of the career winner of more than $750,000. 


Pink offers a delightful buffet and a grand view of the racing action for the hungry handicapper. 


Post time is 7:15 p.m. on both nights.
