The Meadowlands Pace Day edition of Breakfast With The Babies took place on a hot, humid morning with the temperature already around eighty degrees and no wind.

Overdraft Volo took a nice 1:56.1 mark for Andy and Julie Miller in the opener, leading all the way and trotting easily right to the wire several lengths in advance of Amber Ella (Tim Tetrick). The winner is a result of ol’ school Kentuckiana breeding being by Yankee Glide from Bank Of Newport and Kentuckiana retains an interest in her with the Pinske Stable. She sold for $50,000 at Lexington last fall.

Eddie Lohmeyer won the second with Casa Palmera, an Andover Hall filly he owns with his wife Dr. Patty Hogan. Eddie sent her right to the top, set legitimate fractions and won in hand in 1:58.3. Crann Tara (Tetrick) was second and Glitzy Gal (Dave Miller) was a closing third.

Italian-bred Victor Gio IT (Yannick Gingras) impressed the veteran crowd of Breakfast With The Babies faithful with his remarkable turn of foot, moving around the leaders on the turn then zipping home in 27.1 on the end of a mile in 1:56.4. He’s by Ready Cash from the Pine Chip mare Ilaria Jet, owned by Christina Takter with Italians Somma, Ruscigno and Swede Pietro de Mitri.

Wutan won for Jimmy Takter this morning, taking over just past the quarter and going along nicely in 1:57.3 to win by a few over Explosive Ridge (Marcus Johansson). The fashionably bred Muscle Hill colt from Broadway Schooner cost Christina Takter and Brixton Medical, Inc. $130,000 at Harrisburg last fall.

Ohio sire Big Bad John had a winner this morning when the filly Crooked Halo took a 1:57.2 record for Scott Zeron. Ross Croghan conditions the winner for Let It Ride and Dana Parham who gave $95,000 for her at Harrisburg.

Rock The Boat gave Croghan another winner this morning, ending the 1:54.1 mile with a 26.4 final quarter for Andy Miller. The Rock N Roll Heaven colt from the great race mare Tug River Princess left, yielded to Long Beach near the :59 half, tipped out of the last turn then stormed home under light urging. Benjis Best (Jason Bartlett) finished second and Long Beach (Tetrick) faded to third. Let It Ride and Dana Parham also own this colt and are the breeders as well.

Richard Hill got Pace day off to a winning beginning for owner Tom Hill and trainer Tony Alagna who will send favoured Racing Hill out in tonight’s stake by winning the single pacing colt division for Tim Tetrick in 1:55.3. Hill gave $190,000 for the Mach Three colt at Harrisburg. Another Alagna pupil, Art Scene (Zeron), was a closing second.

It’s Meadowlands Pace night with perhaps the best card of the 2016 harness racing season thus far beginning at the special early post time of 6:30 p.m. and over $267,000 in the Jackpot Hi-5 Carryover which will be the twelve-horse Golden Girls stake, race twelve.
