Saturday Night Is Special at The Meadowlands

Friday, December 22, 2017

  Saturday night at The Meadowlands brings with it another value laden 14 race extravaganza beginning at the new early post time of 6:35 p.m.  

  

The overall quality is high, thirteen solid fields of journeyman pacers and one real good group of trotters compose the card with the featured sixth race a $20,000 Preferred pace. 

  

Oddsmaker Dave Brower has tabbed a pair of Delaware shippers as the top two choices on his morning line for the sixth. 

  

Sweet Rock just makes money and has always done well at The Meadowlands, his personal career highlight a win in the 2014 NJ Classic at odds of 92-1. Since then he's made a solid living in the upper classes for trainer Wayne Givens who owns him as Legacy Racing along with fellow Delawareans Reginald Hazzard II and Gary Calloway. Brett Miller, who was aboard for that NJ Classic win, has the drive from post four. 

  

Soto is another money maker shipping up from Dover for trainer Eric Ell and 2017 has been his best season to date, earning more than $200,000 for owners Ken Wood, Bill Ditmar, Jr and Steve Iaquinta. Soto had good success against top competition in the Levy series and just missed a new 1:49.2 record by a mere head in his last, falling but a head short of Christen Me N who had his way with this class last week. The "Red-Hot" Jimmy Marohn, Jr has the assignment from post seven. 

  

There are plenty of ways to win on Saturday with Pick 4 and Pick 5 guarantees, the Survivor bet and a healthy Jackpot Hi 5 carry-over that will be in excess of $50,000, providing it survives Friday's assault.
