Market Share, the 2012 Hambletonian winner, will square off against Rock Of Cashel and five others in the Meadowlands Racetrack’s top trot on Saturday (November 19).

The $13,000 conditioned race has been carded as Race 2 on the 11-dash evening docket.

The 27-time winner boasts over $3.7 million in career earnings and enters the race off a third-place effort behind Mambo Lindy in a similar race last week. Market Share’s regular driver, Tim Tetrick, will be at Woodbine Racetrack for the Fall Final Four, thus Victor Kirby has picked up the assignment for trainer Linda Toscano.

While Market Share leads the field in terms of star power, Mark Harder trainee Rock Of Cashel has been installed as the 2-1 morning line favourite following a pair of runner-up finishes at this level. Andy Miller drives the six-year-old, who shows ability to threaten from both on or off the pace.

Among the five to square off against the marquee pair is Hoosier invader Double A Cash Hall, who has earned minor placings in Indiana stakes events and invitational races alike. Veteran trainer Todd Buter takes over the conditioning duties for fellow Michigander Scott Galloway, and Greg Merton will drive the 3-1 second choice.

The evening’s top conditioned pacing event carries a $14,000 purse, and has been carded as Race 7. Betting Exchange, a standout on the New York Sire Stakes circuit last summer, has been installed as the lukewarm 7-2 morning line favourite in the wide-open affair following a 1:50.4 effort in defeat to Stay Up Late at the same level two starts back. Andy Miller drives the son of Bettors Delight for trainer Tom Fanning.

As usual, a combined $105,000 in guaranteed Pick 4 and Pick 5 pools await players on- and off-track. Fans on course will receive 2017 wall calendars featuring the work of Meadowlands photographer Michael Lisa (while supplies last).

First-race post time is slated for 7:15 p.m. (ET).
