Rockin Ron makes his seasonal debut following a lucrative 2017 campaign in the $20,000 Preferred Pace at the Meadowlands on Saturday, Feb. 17.

The millionaire son of Real Desire was as good as any and better than most free-for-all pacers last summer, amassing over $500,000 in earnings while winning several top class Grand Circuit events and taking a 1:47.2 mark at Mohawk along the way.

Now embarking on his 2018 campaign, Rockin Ron enters off a 1:52.3 qualifier with a :26.1 final quarter. He'll start from post seven with Yannick Gingras driving for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and RTC Stable.

Tim Tetrick is in for the night and has the drive on race-favourite Christen Me N, who was a winner in his last Meadowlands appearance two months ago. He's had a brief freshening and one under his belt coming in to Saturday's race for trainer Jim King, Jr. and owner Richard Poillucci.

King Jr. and Tetrick also team up in the opener with recent-import Shartin N, competing in the evening's top pacing mare class.

In the building there is another World Harness Handicapping Championship qualifier and the usual array of guaranteed pools, along with a six-figure carryover in the Jackpot Super Hi-5. Free program pages may be downloaded for the Late Pick 4 and Hi-5.

Post time is 6:35 p.m.
