Spilling The Beans ($48.40) made a big move up the backstretch en route to a 1:52.2 win at The Meadowlands on Friday night (Dec. 15), capping a hat trick for driver Simon Allard.

The five-year-old Camluck mare made a sustained push wide of rivals to clear the lead past a :55.3 half mile before evading the threat of Dandys Beauty (Brett Miller), who lost cover heading into the far turn. In the end, Spilling The Beans proved 2-1/4 lengths the best over Made Of Jewels As (Anthony Napolitano) and Narcian Jewel (Billy Mann) in the $8,500 conditioned pace for fillies and mares and shared the night's speed badge with Elrama N.

Allard and Brett Miller had the hot hands on a cold night at the Meadowlands Friday, ringing up three winners each on the 11-race card.

Allard also struck in the third race with Show Me Up ($6.20) in 1:53.2 and Cousin Mary ($4.40) in the seventh in 1:53.1 before putting big smiles on his fans' faces with 23-1 chance Spilling The Beans. Miller got his three-bagger started with a pair of trotters–Watkins ($10.60) in the sixth in 1:54.3 and Lauderdale ($15.80) in the eighth in 1:54.4–before capping his night with Youda Shark ($4.20) in the 11th in 1:54.

Jim Marohn, Jr. and Corey Callahan each recorded driving doubles, meaning that the foursome accounted for 10 of the 11 winners on the program.

There were three winning tickets in the 20-cent Survivor Pick 10, with those going eight-for-10 cashing in for $5,135.66. The Late 20-cent Jackpot Super Hi-5 went unhit, increasing the carryover to $39,701.14. All-source wagering on the program totaled $1,793,170.

Racing resumes at the Meadowlands Saturday night with a first race post time of 7:15 p.m. Through the end of December, the Big M will conduct live racing on a Thursday through Saturday basis.
