With several of the leading Meadowlands drivers racing at The Meadows for Pennsylvania Sire Stakes, Tim Tetrick made the most of his live mounts, scoring four wins in a row on the Friday program at The Big M.

The Tim Tetrick parade began in the second race on Friday night at The Meadowlands as he scored in wire-to-wire fashion with the overwhelming favourite, That Woman Hanover, for trainer Henrik Lundell. The four-year-old mare went right down the road in the condition event for pacing mares to score in 1:51.

Tetrick then guided Hambletonian Oaks-eligible Sarcy to a win in the third race condition trot for Jimmy Takter. Tetrick quarter-moved his filly, stole a :29.3 third quarter and had enough left to last in the stretch as the 3-5 choice.

Real Drama would go on to make it three in a row for Tetrick as she scored in wire-to-wire fashion in the fourth race condition event for pacing mares and Watkins would score in the fifth race condition trot after making a backside brush to give Tetrick four consecutive wins on the program.

Tetrick appeared to have a fifth straight win in his sights with Lightning Storm, who turned for home with an expanding lead, but he was gunned down by the classy Flyhawk El Durado as he came from far back to nail Tetrick in the shadow of the wire.

The upper-level trot featured the class Master Of Law, but he was seemingly left with too much ground to make up and could not catch World Cup, who worked out a very good trip for Joe Bongiorno to score in 1:52.4. World Cup now has earnings of over $320,000 while earning the 16th victory in his career.

Total handle for the Friday program was $2,411,238, a seven percent increase over the same racing night in 2014, despite one less race. Live handle also realized an increase.

The Saturday night program at The Meadowlands includes four New Jersey Sire Stakes finals for the three-year-olds and features Mission Brief in the three-year-old filly trot and Artspeak in the three-year-old colt pace. Those two stars headline the 13-race program. On the wagering menu, both Jackpot Super Hi-5 carryovers continued to grow. The fifth race carryover now stands at $136,118 while the last race carryover grew to $109,372. Saturday also features the ultra-popular Jerseyfest and the Food Truck Mash-up. Post time is 7:15 p.m.
