The richest driver in harness racing history, John Campbell and the young
superstar who has the best shot to break that mark by the end of his career, Tim
Tetrick both scored driving triples on the Friday night card at The
Meadowlands. Campbell has seen a recent rejuvenation at The Meadowlands,
moving into the top five in the driver standings after tonight and Tetrick is
starting to catch fire as well.
The Junior Trendsetter series got underway a week late following last Friday’s
cancellation due to the blizzard. The first division saw Humility, making
his first start of his three year old season a winning one for trainer Tony
Alagna defeating his stable mate, the heavily favored Wilcox. The second
division featured a popular win by A Bettor World who led from start to finish
for Dave Miller. Round two of the series continues next Friday.
The action at the betting windows was fast and furious once again. By
night’s end the bettors sent $3,218,851 through the windows. That total
handle marked an increase of 32% from this same Friday in 2012. In
addition, the live handle also showed an increase of 20% from this day in 2012.
