Triple millionaire Arch Madness, the richest Canadian-sired trotter in harness racing history, crushed a field of eight rivals with a seven length romp in the $30,000 Invitational at Meadowlands Racetrack on Friday evening.

In Focus (Ron Pierce) fired off the gate from the outside post position to establish the early lead ahead of post two starter Arch Madness and trainer-driver Trond Smedshammer. However, Arch Madness made his move early and swept to command as they raced past the first quarter pole in :29-seconds. The trotting titan left his foes chasing him the rest of the way through fractions of :57 and 1:24.1 en route to a seven length triumph in 1:52.2. Hot Shot Blue Chip (John Campbell) came on for second over In Focus.

The 1-2 favourite paid $3 to win for the third consecutive time. After finishing third in his season's debut at Harrah's Chester, Arch Madness won the Open there and score back-to-back victories in the Meadowlands' Invite last weekend and tonight. Friday's win was his 30th lifetime and the lion's share of the purse lifted his bankroll to $3,318,988.

The homebred eight-year-old Balanced Image-Armbro Archer gelding is owned by Marc Goldberg and Willow Pond LLC of New York.
