East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands puts up eleven live races on Friday with harness racing twin-features coming up as races 6 and 7, full and competitive fields of trotters and pacing mares each for a purse of $11,000.   Patti and Rob Harmon do a lot of racing at The Meadowlands through the winter months, on Friday they bring no fewer than eight horses to race including a pair that go as an uncoupled entry in the sixth race.   Quick Deal is one of those and has been tabbed as the morning line favorite for the race. The speedy but erratic nine-year-old has been to the mountain top earlier in his career with a fast 1:51.4 record and $400,000 in the bank. He faced the top trotters in the game during his most productive years but breaks, particularly at the gate, have been his undoing on many occasions. Owners Our Horse Cents Stable and Rossie Smith have had Quick Deal in several top barns trying to unlock the mystery behind his self destructive tendencies and thus far the Harmon experiment has gone well.   In last week's race Jim Marohn, Jr settled Quick Deal into the pocket until the stretch and when called upon the old horse had plenty to get the 1:55.1 score. The pair had drawn post six and move up a class on Friday but if he's on his game Quick Deal appears to be the one to beat.   The usual array of dining options are available to you should you choose to attend live and if not free program pages and a plethora of guaranteed pools await your remote wagering dollars.   Post time is 7:15 p.m.   NO NEED TO BE A BIG FISH TO SWIM IN BIG M PICK 10 POOL If you think you have to bet big or be part of a syndicate to rake the pot in the Meadowlands' new 20 Cent Survivor Pick 10 wager, you've got it all wrong. The early returns are in on the Big M's challenging new bet, and not only is it popular, but the results prove that a small player can hit a nice ticket if they can survive and advance. “Thus far (through nine days),” said Meadowlands chief operating officer and general manager Jason Settlemoir. “The average winning ticket paid $6,552 with an average ticket cost of $80.82. One of our sharp patrons hit a winning ticket when he or she invested only 80 cents.” The wager calls for a handicapper to select the winner of the first race. If they do that, they advance to the second. Then the third, and so on until no "survivor" remains, with that patron or patrons taking home the cash. Those looking to jump into the Pick 10 pool when racing resumes tonight have one less race to worry about as the nine-race program – as well as the Survivor Pick 9 – gets underway at 7:15 p.m. Through the end of December, the Big M will race Thursday through Saturday. Post time is 7:15 p.m.   Nick Salvi  

East Rutherford, NJ - Live harness racing returns to The Meadowlands on Thursday with a nine race offering set to begin at 7:15 p.m.   The program features full fields including two divisions of the popular GSY Driving Club events and a carry-over of more than $35,000 in the last race Jackpot Super Hi-5 wager.   Racing Secretary Pete Koch has taken a page from the Thoroughbred condition book and written a short Starter Allowance series. The second of two preliminary legs goes on Thursday where twenty-two declarations resulted in a pair of eleven horse fields with returning winners Esprit De Kayjay A and May I Cruise West among the entrants.   Access expert selections and free program pages from The Meadowlands website.   The Meadowlands will race live Thursday through Saturday for the balance of December with post time set for 7:15 p.m. each card.   Nick Salvi

The Meadowlands has a couple of good reasons to take a hard look at Friday's harness racing card with a $17,117.45 carryover in the Pick 5 (races 2-6) that will likely result in an inflated pool with takeout negated to around $115,000. It is a fifty cent base wager.   Another attraction is the last race 20 cent Super Jackpot Hi 5 with the jackpot pool now over $30,000.   You may access free program pages for these wagers compliments of The Meadowlands and Trackmaster.   Saturday Night at The Meadowlands   The Meadowlands' Saturday night card offers a dozen pari-mutuel puzzlers for those horseplayers questing for value. The fields are solid in size and quality with the better classes for pacers and trotters alike being concentrated on the Saturday card.   Jody Reidel's Can Do is a contender in the fifth race $13,000 conditioned trot. Can Do has been in Jody's barn for some time now and the 8-year-old shows up pretty much every week to do his work. In 39 starts this season Can Do has won 7 and been on the board in 21 of them for earnings of $83,325 and only recently crept past the half million dollar mark in career earnings. He'll begin from post four on Friday with Anthony Napolitano in the sulky.   Always At My Place (PP #4) will look to repeat in the pacing feature for the top trainer/driver team of Ron Burke and Yannick Gingras in the $17,500 third race. Gingras floated Always At My Place from the gate, ground to the front past a 26.4 opening quarter then set an honest pace using a 27.3 close to hold Art History at bay in 1:50.4. Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura share ownership of the career winner of more than $750,000.   Pink offers a delightful buffet and a grand view of the racing action for the hungry handicapper.   Post time is 7:15 p.m. on both nights.   Nick Salvi

East Rutherford, NJ - Friday night at The Meadowlands brings eleven overnight races led by the $17,500 final of the popular "Dash for the G-Note" short series. That race comes up as the seventh on the harness racing card, kicking off the $50,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4 Pool.   Ron Burke sends three entries out in pursuit of the top prize including ten-year-old class-master Ideal Matters, a recent addition to the barn. Ideal Matters (PP #9) has raced the best around the East coast for the past few seasons then finally found the claimers a few weeks ago and eventually was transferred via a private purchase.   The fresh surroundings apparently agreed with him (a perfect trip from driver Anthony Napolitano certainly didn't hurt) as he dashed from the pocket to wear down 1-5 race favorite Kotare Yael N for a comfortable win with something left.   Ideal Matters now races in the Burke stable colors for the interests of the trainer as Burke Racing, LLC in partnership with Weaver Bruscemi, LLC and Napolitano retains the drive on Friday.   Moonlight Ransom collected his first win of the 2017 season in last week's elim and has drawn well, starting from post three on Friday. Moonlight has shown steady improvement since joining the Jenn Bongiorno stable for owner Michael Singer and is poised to contend for driver Simon Allard.   Justified is the third horse returning off a win last week for trainer-driver Eric Abbatiello. Another "War-Horse" the nine-year-old winner of nearly a third million dollars went the fastest mile in the elims when he crossed the wire in 1:52.2. He races in the familiar colors of The Red Man Stable.   Promotions-wise The Meadowlands is in holiday mode with the direction being cash for the giving season. Friday it's that old chestnut "Money Machine Fever", a true fan favorite, that is not to be missed.   The fun starts at 7:15 p.m.   There will be a Pick Five carryover at the Meadowlands Friday for the second straight week. $17,117.45 will be added to the pool tomorrow that covers Races 2-6. It carries a 50-cent base wager and a low 15-percent takeout rate. Free pps for Friday’s Pick 5 can be found here - http://playmeadowlands.com/uploadedFiles/Handicapping/Past_Performances/Dec8Pick5Carryover.pdf In other Meadowlands wagering news the Early Pick 4 (Races 3-6) returned $10,625.    Nick Salvi    

East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands goes live this Thursday and will present live harness racing three days per week, Thursday through Saturday, for the balance of December 2017.   This Thursday night's offering is a nine race program composed of full fields with the usual guarantees on horizontal wagers including the popular new Survivor wager which of course becomes a nine race bet for this card. The last race Jackpot Hi 5 carry-over is still growing with $28,871 now in the pool.   A pair of GSY Driving Club races are on the menu in races one and five populated by many of the usual suspects in the amateur ranks. The fields are large and even with the horse quality at a high level, promising interesting competition for the club races.   Handicapping aids like Dave Brower's Race Reviews and Ken Warkentin's selections are available plus free program pages for a few of the bets.   Live racing follows a Thursday -Friday - Saturday schedule until the new year. Post time each night is 7:15 pm.   The live dates for 2018 are available here.   Nick Salvi          

East Rutherford, NJ - Good field size, competitive races and top harness racing drivers highlight the Saturday offering at The Meadowlands along with the standard menu of guaranteed exotic wagers and delightful dining options in Pink.   The Saturday night feature comes in race seven where eight solid pacers vie for a purse of $17,500 in a conditioned event.   Ron Burke sends a duo of accomplished veterans out as a coupled entry with Always At My Place and Speed Again representing the top barn in racing.   Always At My Place is only recently removed from winning the Open class at Yonkers twice in late October. The 2017 winner of over $173,000 has won 9 of 28 seasonal starts for trainer Burke as Burke Racing along with partners Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura. Yannick Gingras will drive from post six on Saturday.   Speed Again has been around forever and may have last a step or two at age eight but recently eclipsed the $1 million mark in career earnings. He races for Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and RTC Stables with Corey Callahan aboard from post seven.   There is a qualifier for the World Harness Handicapping Contest (WHHC) sponsored by Derby Wars on Saturday with two seats in the big final up for grabs.   Post time is 7:15 p.m.   Nick Salvi    

East Rutherford, NJ - With stakes racing concluded for 2017 the Winter Meet kicks off at The Meadowlands on Friday evening with an 11 race overnight harness racing card and a dozen more on tap for Saturday.   Friday's offering features optimum field size and competitive groups. With the recent closing of Pocono and Plainridge there are horses and drivers coming from every direction making for some real pari-mutuel puzzlers.   Among the drivers on the Friday card is Anthony Napolitano who took the crown as leading driver of the 2016 Winter-Spring meet in his first extended stay at The Meadowlands. Anthony put together an impressive run, enjoying remarkable success over the mile oval without the benefit of a top barn to drive for. As a result he became a favorite of the longshot player by bringing in an inordinate number of winners at long odds.   Misfortune struck soon after that accomplishment was realized when Anthony sustained a serious injury to his back in a racing accident at Pocono at the end of May keeping him out of the sulky for two months and compromising his season.   A winner of nearly 2,500 races in a career that began in 2001, Anthony recovered gradually and put together another solid season at Pocono in 2017 and has over $2.4 million on his card in 2017.   On Friday Napolitano picked up drives in 10 of the 11 races, including a couple for perennial leading trainer Ron Burke which can only help his quest to resume Big M success.   Another live steer is on Lauderdale in the featured seventh race trot who Napolitano steered to a career best 1:53.1 win this spring for trainer Jonas Czernyson. The strapping seven-year-old career winner of over $400,000 is getting class relief and has drawn post nine on Friday for owner Millstream Farms.   All of the Meadowlands signature guaranteed wagers are in place for Friday including the Survivor Pick 10, Pick 5 and pair of Pick 4's and the 11th race Jackpot Hi 5 carry-over pool is up to nearly $25,000.   Program pages for some exotics and Dave Brower's race reviews are available at no cost via The Meadowlands website.   Post Time is 7:15 p.m.   Nick Salvi    

East Rutherford, NJ - Saturday night at The Meadowlands is the penultimate stop on the 2017 Grand Circuit with over $2.6 million in purses distributed over the finals of the TVG Series for older horses and the Freshman Fall Final Four. The harness racing stars of the season will align over the eight races to make their case for divisional honors.   Hannelore Hanover (Yannick Gingras) has the $175,000 TVG Mare Trot to use as a final push for Horse Of The Year honors with her top two rivals, Ariana G and Manchego, already in the clubhouse. She'll face the late season sensation Emoticon Hanover (Dan Dube) who has seared through the second half of the season in the mare division while Hannelore raced open competition.   What The Hill (David Miller) accepted an invitation to race in the $350,000 TVG Open final as the sophomore Breeders Crown champ. A win against older would likely advance his position for the Dan Patch trophy for that division.   Ron Burke trains Hannelore Hanover and What The Hill for his own interests as Burke Racing and J&T Silva on both. Weaver Bruscemi and Frank Baldachino are partners on the Hannelore while Our Horse Cents Stable and Deo Volente Farms hold shares in What The Hill.   Youaremycandygirl could cement the pacing filly title for Burke, Gingras and owner Bill Donovan with a win in the $381,200 Three Diamonds stake while Stay Hungry could do the same in the colt pace for owners Brad Grant and Irwin Samelman, trainer Tony Alagna and driver Doug McNair in the $411,700 Governors Cup.   The freshman colt trot leader is still unclear with several contenders to battle in the $464,650 Valley Victory. Fashionwoodchopper (D. Miller) is the PASS champ and won both weeks at The Red Mile for Jim Campbell and Fashion Farms, Wolfgang (Gingras) nipped Takter stable-mate Sam Different Day in the Matron for owners Brixton Medical, Goran Falk, Hatfield Stable and Fair Island Farm while Fourth Dimension (Brian Sears) won last week's elim and is the likely favorite for owner Courant, Inc.   The filly trot is a wide open affair, but the unbeaten Manchego wrapped up divisional honors early. Ake Svanstedt and Blue Chip Bloodstock's Plunge Blue Chip was vicious in the elimination and is the filly to beat in the $420,750 Goldsmith Maid.   The older pacers are still a puzzle and the contenders are assembled for the $350,000 TVG Pacing final. McWicked was just that in a qualifier last Saturday, dragging Brian Sears around the oval in 1:48.4 for Casie Coleman and owner SSG Stable and will take some beating here.   The pacing mares are just as competitive, Pure Country (Mark MacDonald) could probably wrap divisional honors with a win here following her Breeders Crown success for Takter and Diamond Creek Racing.   Make your reservations for the big night in Pink, the track's terraced dining room at the track.   Post time is 7:15 p.m..   Nick Salvi

East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands is racing live on Saturday night with a thirteen race harness racing program featuring $20,000 eliminations for the Freshman Fall Final Four stakes and a $25,000 TVG Open prep for the pacing mares.   Racing Secretary Pete Koch found upon opening the box that each of the 2 year-old stakes would require only a single elimination to reduce each field to ten after byes had been offered to and accepted by the top money winners for each division.   Pacing fillies come first (Race 3) as they prepare for next week's $381,200 Three Diamonds final. The byes were accepted by division leaders Youaremycandygirl, Rainbow Room and Majorsspecial Lady leaving ten to vie for the seven remaining berths. Kindergarten final winner Kissin In The Sand (post #2 Tim Tetrick) is the logical favorite off of her imposing 1:50.3 win in that race, missing the track record for her division by a scant fifth of a second. Nancy Johansson conditions the filly for Marvin Katz and Bud Hatfield Stables.   The Goldsmith Maid for filly trotters (Race 5) drew eleven declarations and Kindergarten final winner Hey Blondie accepted the bye into next week's $420,750 final. With division leader Manchego passing on the event, it's a pretty even field of ten left to fight over nine spots next week with Seviyorum (PP #7)the likely choice off her runner-up finish in the Breeders Crown. She races out of the Andy and Julie Miller barn for their interests and those of Story, Inc.   The $464,650 Valley Victory final will unite Samo Different Day, who took the pass here, with nine of the ten colt trotters who will race in the elimination (Race 8). The presence of top colts such as NYSS star Fourth Dimension (Brian Sears), KYSS final winner Hat Trick Habit (Tetrick), PASS final winner Fashionwoodchopper (Dave Miller), Matron winner Wolfgang (Yannick Gingras) and Breeders Crown runner-up Met's Hall (Andy Miller) will make this a very contentious race.   The colt pacers are also a distinguished group that will see Breeders Crown champ Stay Hungry wait in the barn for the $411,700 final while Metro winner Lost In Time (Scott Zeron), Red Mile Grand Circuit star Nutcracker Sweet (Tetrick), Matron winner Springsteen (Simon Allard) and new sensation American History (Gingras) set to throw down for the nine available positions next week.   The TVG Mare Open was the only one of the four races offered to that group to fill. Seven really talented females will face the gate in the seventh race as the prep for the final for their division among the estimated $1.2 million in TVG Finals next Saturday.   Saturday's entries may be found on The Meadowlands website along with details on enjoying the evening's racing from the track tiered dining room, Pink.   Post time is 7:15 p.m.   Nick Salvi          

East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands will host a dozen live races on Saturday, November 11, the harness racing card composed of a compelling blend of emerging stars and battle tested veterans.   Trainer Tony Alagna sends out a pair of talented, late-blooming freshmen pacing colts in the second race with an eye trained on the upcoming $350,000 Governor's Cup.   American History and Captain Deo both made their career debuts at The Red Mile in late fall qualifiers and have quickly matured into potential players in the division.   American History has been nothing short of sensational in a pair of romps at Hoosier Park. After a remarkable 1:51.4 Lexington qualifier in his very first outing, he coasted through a 1:52.2 maiden victory that was followed by an easy as pie seven length stroll despite moving up a class. He's a $150,000 Lexington sale graduate by American Ideal out of Perfect Touch owned by the breeder Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz and American History Racing. Yannick Gingras will drive from post seven.   Captain Deo, a Somebeachsomewhere from the great Worldly Beauty, broke his maiden with a 1:52.4 Meadowlands win for driver Joe Bongiorno last week, sprinting home in 26.4 with speed to spare. Tony owns the colt, who leaves from post three, in partnership with Joe Sbrocco, In The Gym and Captain Deo Partners who paid $90,000 for him last fall.   The card matures into a really good gambling proposition as the evening wears on with top overnight classes for all divisions, the various guaranteed Pick 4 and 5's and the exciting new Survivor wager which begins in race 1.   Dining options are many with the scrumptious Pink buffet, Trotters owner's club and Victory Sports Bar among the choices.   Post time on Saturday is 7:15 p.m.   MEADOWLANDS ADJUSTS WAGERING FORMAT   Changes to take effect Saturday, November 11 The Meadowlands Racetrack is announcing a small change to its wagering format that will take effect when live racing resumes this Saturday, November 11. With the start of the Pick 10 Survivor on Race 1, the 50-cent Pick Five will be moved back to start on Race 2 to avoid overlap between the two wagers. In addition, the early Pick Four will move back to start on Race 4 and the late Pick Four will now start on Race 8. The guarantees for all four wagers will remain in place. The Pick 10 Survivor will carry a $10,000 guarantee, the Pick Five and early Pick Four will have a $25,000 guarantee, and the late Pick Four will have a $50,000 guarantee. “As we continue to see how the new Pick 10 Survivor plays out, we wanted to make sure that our other multi-race wagers were not being stepped on,” explained Jason Settlemoir, Meadowlands COO/GM. “With these changes, we hope horseplayers will be able to focus on each multi-race wager.” Live racing resumes Saturday, November 11 with a 12-race program beginning at 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit www.playmeadowlands.com.   Nick Salvi

Vernon NY - The fifth and last preliminary leg of the harness racing 'Kindergarten Classic' series will be raced at Vernon Downs on Thursday, October 26.   One division for each sex and gait filled and will race for a purse of $10,000 each as races 7 - 10 on the Thursday card.   Trotting colts launch the Kindergarten portion of the program in the seventh led by Farsetti Hanover (PP #4) who has raced in all of the legs and is currently the division's point leader for the training/driving team of Erv and Marcus Miller. The Donato Hanover colt is but a few dollars shy of the $100,000 mark in earnings for the partnership of Erv Miller Stable, George Golemes and David Prushnok.   Filly trotters are up in the eighth where a field of ten (reduced to six betting interests due to entry coupling) will compete for not just purse money but valuable points toward a berth in the rich finals. Locally based owner Ken Jacobs had a pair of nice Chapter Seven fillies racing for trainer Linda Toscano led by Bluegrass stakes winner Sevenbuyeleven (PP #5 Tim Tetrick) who is making her Kindergarten debut. The formula is fairly complicated, but if everything goes exactly right Sevenbuyeleven can still race her way into the final with a good performance on Thursday.   Points North is in the colt pace and he is the point leader for that division, having compiled a pair of wins in the September legs at The Meadowlands for owner Pinske Stable and trainer Nifty Norman. Points North also added a Grand Circuit Bluegrass Stakes win to his list of accomplishments at The Red Mile last month. Andy McCarthy has the drive from post four.   Filly pacers wrap up the evening led by I'm Trigger Happy who swept The Meadowlands Kindergarten legs impressively. She's won 3 of 4 starts for owner Let It Ride Stables, INC and trainer Ross Croghan and begins from post eight for Corey Callahan.   The $150,000e finals and consolation races for the Kindergarten will be raced at The Meadowlands on Saturday, November 4. Both the current points standings and conditions are available on the web.   Post time at Vernon is 6:45 p.m.   Nick Salvi

Also on the table are points toward the $175,000e Kindergarten finals which will be raced at The Meadowlands on Saturday, November 4 after the last preliminary leg goes at Vernon Downs on October 26.   The most accomplished of the freshmen racing in the Friday Kindergarten leg are a pair of Donato Hanover trotting colts come along in the ninth race. That split pits PA Sires Stakes final winner Fashionwoodchopper against Reynolds winner Farsetti Hanover ,who was a winner last week in leg three.   Fashionwoodchopper (PP #7) has but two wins in five starts but they were timely ones. A PASS win in August cemented his position in the $252,000 final and he converted that opportunity into a state crown at odds of 38-1 for driver David Miller and trainer Jim Campbell. Jules Siegel's Fashion Farms is the owner.   Farsetti Hanover (PP #4) was third in the Peter Haughton final, won the Reynolds and was an easy winner of his Kindergarten leg as the 2-5 choice last week. Marcus Miller drives for his father, trainer Erv who owns the colt in a partnership with George Golemes and David Prushnok.   The Kindergarten point standings may be viewed on The Meadowlands website.   All of the Meadowlands dining options are available all weekend, call for reservations.   Nick Salvi
