There were no stakes finals at
the Meadowlands this weekend, but there may have been a budding star that
emerged in race 11 on Saturday Night. Statesman N, who flashed a powerful
late kick in his North American debut showed versatility tonight, moving to the
lead through a 56.2 half mile and never looking back. He paced a final
quarter on the front end in 26.4 with John Campbell at the lines. It's
safe to say, the gelded son of Christian Cullen will be on to bigger and better
things in the future.
There is little doubt who the
driver of the week was at the Meadowlands. Corey Callahan followed his
four wins on Friday with a three-peat on Saturday. He continues his
stellar 2013 season, as he continues to lead all North American drivers in wins
Once again, The Meadowlands
eclipsed the wagering mark from 2012, showing an increase of $348, 915 or 14
percent, despite having one less race than a year ago. Racing returns
Friday with first post time of 7:15 P.M.
