Three-year-old filly pacers will step out in the $176,000 Tarport Hap on Saturday night at Meadowlands Racetrack.

Put On A Show looks to deliver another winning performance as the 7-5 favourite in the first of the two $88,000 splits (Race 3). Brian Sears will sub for her regular partner, Tim Tetrick, in the sulky.

Trained by Chris Ryder, Put On A Show has won five of six races this season, including the $175,000 Miss New Jersey and $200,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes finals. She fell a neck short of stopping Western Silk in the Fan Hanover Final at Mohawk, her only 2010 loss. Lifetime, the daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Stienam's Place has a record of 12 wins and three second in 15 starts and earnings of $1.1 million. Craig Henderson and Richard and Joanne Young own the filly.

Dancinwiththestarz, a standout in the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes program, is the 5-2 favourite in the second division (Race 7). She will start from Post 8 with Sears at the lines. Dancinwiththestarz has been first or second in 15 of 18 career starts for just over $450,000 in earnings. Mark Harder trains the daughter of Four Starzzz Shark-So Western for W Springtime Racing Stable and Shannon Brott.
