Sophomore trotters were in the spotlight at the Meadowlands on Thursday evening as the New Jersey oval hosted the second legs of the Windylane Hanover and Mr Muscleman Series.

Boinga took the lone $18,000 division of the Windylane Hanover for the tandem of driver David Miller and trainer Brian Roland. Sent off as the even-money favourite, the daughter of Windsongs Legacy-Melody Of Love took over command at the mid-way point and dug in late to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:56.1 over Special Appeal. Jettalady was third.

The 1:56.1 clocking matched the mark earned by the filly in last week’s opening-leg assignment. Owned by Anthony & Carol Risi and Bernard O’Brien, Boinga now owns a 2-1-0 record in her first three starts of the 2010 campaign. She has banked $69,972 to date.

Colts and geldings squared off in a set of Mr Muscleman splits, with Tough Challenger and Oh No Its Steveo taking home top prize in their respective assignments.

Tough Challenger strolled through easy panels of :28.1, :58.2 and 1:29.1 for driver John Campbell before jetting home in :27.2 to seal the deal in a career-best clocking of 1:56.3. Take My Picture rallied well but fell a nose short on the finish line. Jailhouse Scorpion rounded out the top three.

Orlando Greene conditions the son of You Betcha-I Juanna Win for the Delaware partnership of the Nanticoke Racing Inc and Jim Morand. The colt has put together a 2-2-0 record in his first four starts of the season, while his overall bankroll climbed to $62,525.

Oh No Its Steveo made a break in his first start of the season at the Meadowlands, but he was all business in Thursday’s follow-up assignment for trainer Peter Kleinhans. The son of Pegasus Spur-Miss Mighty Lady did most of the road work for driver Yannick Gingras en route to winning in an eye-catching clocking of 1:55.3. It was more than two lengths back to runner-up Strong Hope, and R Sam was third.

The ridgling, who manufactured a 1-2-0 record in four starts in his rookie season, has $18,500 in career earnings for owner Beth Rosenstein of New York, NY.
