The Meadowlands Racetrack will host a dozen live races this Saturday evening (November 11) and the card is composed of a compelling blend of emerging stars and battle-tested veterans.

Conditioner Tony Alagna will send out a pair of talented, late-blooming freshmen pacing colts in Race 2 with an eye trained on the upcoming $350,000 Governor's Cup.

American History and Captain Deo both made their career debuts at the Red Mile in late-fall qualifiers and have quickly matured into potential players in the division.

American History was been nothing short of sensational in a pair of romps at Hoosier Park. After a remarkable 1:51.4 Lexington qualifier in his very first outing, American History coasted through a 1:52.2 maiden victory that was followed by an easy-as-pie seven-length stroll despite having moved up in class. He's a $150,000 Lexington sale graduate by American Ideal out of Perfect Touch and is owned by the breeder Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz and American History Racing. Yannick Gingras will drive from Post 7.

Captain Deo, a son of Somebeachsomewhere from the great Worldly Beauty, broke his maiden with a 1:52.4 Meadowlands win for driver Joe Bongiorno last week (he sprinted home in :26.4 with speed to spare). Alagna co-owns the colt that will start from Post 3 on Saturday. Alagna owns Captain Deo in partnership with Joe Sbrocco, In The Gym and Captain Deo Partners who paid $90,000 for him last fall.

Post time on Saturday will be 7:15 p.m.
