Horse And Groom Headlines Friday at The Meadowlands

Friday, March 8, 2013

Quick Deal made short work of the second round of the Horse and Groom series, scoring an easy 1:52.1 triumph over favored Modern Family.  Quick Deal, who made a break in round 1 of the series, made a backside brush forcing Modern Family to come first over into strong fractions.  Turning for home, Quick Deal powered away while Modern Family moved easily into second and those two trotted away from the field.  The 1:52.1 final time was a new lifetime mark for Quick Deal.

In other action, NY Yankees went a very quick mile, defeating favored Southwind Jazmin in a sharp 1:51 in the Fillies and Mare A-2 Pace.  The A-1 Handicap Trot went to Opening Night who powered home off cover to score in 1:54.3.  The one time Hambletonian winner was driven to victory by John Campbell.

Despite another rough day weather-wise, with snow falling until late afternoon, The Meadowlands total handle posted another impressive night.  The $2,769,161 wagered on the 11 race program marked an increase of 15% from the same day in 2012.  The Saturday 13 race card gets underway at 7:15 P.M.
