Hambletonian prospect Charlie De Vie delivered an impressive performance on a card that showcased young trotting and pacing talent Friday night at the Meadowlands Racetrack.

Driven by Tim Tetrick, Charlie De Vie [$6.80] crushed the field in the $25,000 open trot for three-year-olds. He took command before the half and cruised untested to a 3-3/4 length triumph over Fawkes in 1:54.2. The favourite Manofmanymissions went off stride approaching the final turn and finished last.

Trainer Chris Ryder is pointing the son of Yankee Glide-Knickers Hanover for harness racing's greatest prize, the $1.5 million Hambletonian, on Saturday, August 6 at the Meadowlands. Charlie De Vie was a $90,000 yearling purchase at the Standarbred Horse Sale in Harrisburg, PA by Joie De Vie Farm.

The son of Muscles Yankee-Mallelujah cruised in 1:56.1 with Ron Pierce at the lines. The Jimmy Takter trainee is being pointed toward the $500,000 Peter Haughton Memorial on Saturday, August 6. Blomkvist was a $50,000 yearling purchase at the Lexington-Selected Sale by Takter's wife, Christina, and partners John Fielding, Jim Fielding and Falkbolagen Ab.

Vic Smith rallied to victory in 1:57.3 for the team of Andy and Julie Miller in the first NJSS for trotting colts, which was contested as a non-wagering event prior to the start of the card. The Millers co-own the son of Yankee Glide-PJ Naomi with Baron Racing Stable. Vic Smith was a $30,000 yearling purchase at Lexington.

Three divisions of the NJSS for two-year-old filly pacers were also contested on the Friday card.
