The Meadowlands has a 13-race card set to go this evening. The headliners are the Graduate Series Finals and the Meadowlands Pace Eliminations. The 0.50 Early Pick 4 starts in Race 6. The sequence has a $50,000 guaranteed pool with a 15% takeout, and it will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 6

1-I Did It Myway (7/2)-Comes off an impressive try in a gate to wire win. The track was very fast, and this colt went to the 3/4's in 121 but had enough left to finish off the mile. Could be even better now, missed a start before the last race.
2-Frozen Hanover (5-1)-Mohawk invader steps-up after a powerful win at 3/2. Moves in from post 7 and McClure could work a nice stalking trip. Somebeachsomewhere colt was bought for $325,000 and is a fighter, we will see if he can meet this challenge.
5-Beach Glass (5/2)- Finished a beaten 2nd to a strong winner in the NA Cup. Fits well here and Gingras should be blasting out to seek control.

Race 7

2-Ultimaroca (7/2)-Comes off a big try, was used a few times and finished a close 3rd. Shouldn't have to work as hard to get on the point. Gingras grabs the lines tonight and he posed a couple of times with this Burke trainee back in March.
6-Wes Delight (10-1)-Willing to take a swing for a price in the 2nd start of the year. Came off the bench and finished 5th at this class in a quick mile. Will look for better here and has done a decent job at M1 (22-6-2-3).

Race 8

4-Test Of Faith (2-1)-Certainly, this hasn't been a bad year (7-3-3-0) but hasn't been as dominant. There have been reasons and the 4-year-old season can be a challenge but tonight looks like an opportunity to leave this field in the dust.

Race 9

3-Ahundreddollarbill (5-1)-Thinking there will be a few battling for the lead and a hot pace could benefit this Alagna trainee. TMac should have this 4-year-old in striking range turning for the wire and might close fastest of all.
4-Take All Comers (6-1)-Has an 0-6 record at the Big M and was driven aggressively in last. Could be sitting on a big try at a square price. Best to respect, was off 3 weeks before the last start.
6-Rattle My Cage (3-1)-Winner of 3 straight has started the year with only one blemish and has been too good to overlook. Gingras is between the pipes again and should have no trouble finding a close-up seat.

0.50 Early Pick 4
