Summer Camp made it six straight wins as he wired the field in his $18,000 second leg division of the Clyde Hirt Series for four-year-old pacers on Friday night at Meadowlands Racetrack.

Sent off the 1-2 favourite, Summer Camp [$3] sailed through fractions of :27.1, :56.2 and 1:25 toward a final 1:52 clocking. Andy Miller steered the son of Rocknroll Hanover-Roman Art to his 12th career victory in the second race, the first of two Clyde Hirt divisions on the card. Touch The Rock (Tim Tetrick) drafted behind the winner the whole way and finished a length and a half behind in second, while Sniper Seelster (John Campbell) rallied for third.

Josh Green trains Summer Camp, a career winner of over $110,000, for owners Larry Baron of Horsham, Pennsylvania and VIP Internet Stable of Piscataway, New Jersey. The gelding will bid for his second series crown in the $90,000 (est.) Clyde Hirt Final next Saturday. He won the $57,000 Escort in a career best 1:49.3 on Nov. 20, 2010 at the Meadowlands.

Meirs Hanover made the lead at the half and rolled to a 1:51.4 victory in the second Clyde Hirt division, race three, with Brian Sears in tow. The headliner in a three-horse entry trained by Ron Burke (three wins on the program), Meirs Hanover [$2.20] was sent off at odds of 1-9. Freddy Day Hanover (Andy Miller) closed from far back to finish a length and a half behind in second. Meirs Hanover's stablemate No Monkeys Allowed (John Campbell) held his ground in third.

Meirs Hanover surpassed $100,000 in career earnings as he posted his first win of the season and ninth overall. The son of Artsplace-MAry Mattgalane is owned by David Van Dusen, Michael Cimaglio and Strollin Stable, all of Ohio.

Cuz She Can rallied four-wide to best Red Star Hottie (Brian Sears) by a length and a half in the $32,000 Mares Invitational. Driven by Tim Tetrick, Cuz She Can closed in a swift :26.4 for the 1:53 score. It was another two lengths back to the pacesetter Bet The Ranch (Ron Pierce) in third.

Cuz She Can boosted her earnings to over $716,000 with the victory, her first of the season and 25th lifetime. Owner Francis Azur of Coraopolis, Pennsylvania took Cuz She Can home with a bid of $210,000 at the Standardbred Horse Sales Company's November 2010 mixed sale in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Kevin McDermott trains the six-year-old Cambest-Second Symphony mare.

Tim Tetrick will talk about undefeated St Elmo Hero, who will start from Post 8 in the lone second leg division of The Complex Series, and the rest of his drives for the night on Meadowlands Racetrack's Saturday night television broadcast.

Fans can e-mail questions for Tetrick to answer on-air to [email protected]. The show begins at 6:30 p.m. on the Paddock Level television set. Watch it live on-track or at
