The wet weather couldn’t dampen the mood at the Meadowlands this Friday night. On the racetrack the story was driver Dave Miller, who won 5 of 11 races on the card, including two divisions of The Clyde Hirt Series. Miller has now won eight races in the last two nights.
In the Clyde Hirt, a pair of favorites put on a show as One Through Ten, one of Dave Miller’s five wins and Holdingallthecards are on a collision course in the Final as both scored impressive victories. One Through Ten held off a game Ethan Hanover in a quick 1:52.2 mile on a track rated sloppy, while Holdingallthecards dominated his division in a sharp 1:52.
In other Clyde Hirt action, Bestjetyet scored in the first division for Meadowlands newcomer Eric Carlson in 1:52.4, while Shaws Creek Bluff fended off Mr Dennis in 1:54 in the final division.
The wagering dollars came pouring through the windows at an even stronger rate than the falling rain. The total handle for the eleven race Friday card was $2,862,831. That total marked a staggering 30% increase from the same Friday in 2012. Fresh off the heels of a Saturday that produced a $3.5 Million handle last week, the excitement is building into a power-packed thirteen race program Saturday night, featuring two divisions of the first round of The Presidential Series. Post time is set for 7:15 P.M.
