There is a 13-race card scheduled to roll at the Meadowlands this evening. The feature comes in Race 10, a condition pace with a $25,000 purse. The 0.50 Pick 4 sequence starts in Race 8, it has a $50,000 guaranteed pool and it will be my focus.
On Friday, the drivers with the hottest hands at the Big M were Dave Miller and Yanick Gingras with two pictures each. The
trainers with the most wins were Ake Svanstedt and Ron Burke, both with two trips to the winner's circle.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
3-Bravo Tex N-Positive driver change, Miller should keep in striking range, and that could trigger 1st win of 2019.
8-JK Parlay-Big try in last and had missed a start, could be better tonight and take a picture with a good steer.
10-Shneonucrzydiamnd A-Post is a concern but drops and is 2nd time Lasix, last was better, upswing may continue.
5-Tie Your Shoe Ed-Needs to find some live cover, if so, should be right there at the wire.
6-Tact Tate N-Similar to #5 and loses A. Miller, gets class relief and fits better with this group.
7-Mike's Powerhouse-Needs to finish off a mile but may blast out and get on the engine without much strain.
10-Sams A Champ A-Has some gate speed to get a good seat, this is a soft spot for hot barn.
4-Sweet Rock-Really has no excuse versus this crew but is trip dependent, so will use and look to beat the chalk.
5-Sagebrush Kid-Loses Callahan but Kirby knows well, steps-up but is in sharp form.
6-Incredible Shark-Should be able to leave and find a close-up trip, in the hunt with a good drive.
1-Super Feeekeh-A hodgepodge race and from the inside this guy should be put in play.
3-Byby Landon-Having a tough year but with this post draw could get on the engine and not look back.
4-David The Saint-Fresh horse, qualified well, if ready in 1st start since 4/20 will be in the mix with a suspect field.
Race 8) 3,8,10
Race 9) 5,6,7,10
Race 10) 4,5,6
Race 11) 1,3,4
Total Ticket Cost) $54 for $0.50
