The Meadowlands has an 13-race card on tap with the feature coming in Race 10, the Wiggle It Jiggle It Final with a $58,500 purse. The very popular 0.50 Pick 4 begins in Race 8. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
5-Sagebrush Sid-Price shot took the long way around and raced big, hot barn and could surprise with a trip.
9-Stonedust-Finds a better spot and Tetrick takes a seat, both factors help and should be in the hunt.
10-JK Parlay-In a new barn but has been razor sharp, shouldn't blush versus this bunch and will respect chances.
1-New Talent-Went a 48.3 mile in first back after a rest, Gingras should keep in play could be sitting on a big try.
7-Donttellmeagain-Classy 5-year-old makes first start of '19, tune-ups were good, a player if dialed on high.
11-Dealt A Winner-Millionaire 7-year-old makes season debut from 2nd tier, D. Miller could find a trip and roll late.
2-World On Edge-Gets post relief and it's 2nd time Lasix, 9-1 in the ML and worth a swing.
3-Dealer's Table-No doubt has speed, but rationing is an issue, rolled out to a big lead with a 53.3 half and faded.
7-Respect Our Flag-Luke warm chalk has the gate speed to get a close-up trip, sharp form and hot barn.
1-Decoy-Closed well in 1st start of the year, has won 2 of 4 at the Big M and could surprise at a square price.
3-Alotbettor N-Winner of 5 of 12 at the Big M, drops out Pref and had an excuse in last, looks like a player.
5-Captain Deo-Nice try from 9-hole at this class, positive driver change and will use at 10-1 in the ML.
7-K Ryan Bluechip-Even effort when dropped to this level, D. Miller takes a seat, beaten chalk can make amends.
