Another great 14-race betting card is in store for fans of Meadowlands racing on Saturday night (Dec. 30). The past two weeks have seen a strong surge in interest in the races, and in turn handle has followed with a significant upward trend.
The Survivor Pick 10 wager is thriving with another horseplayer chasing in to the tune of nearly $15,000 on Thursday, while the horizontal wager guarantees are drawing big play. The last-race Jackpot Super Hi-5 carryover pool has continued to build to over $57,000 into Friday's card.
On Saturday, the top trotters currently in harness open the card with a well-matched field of seven set to go in a $20,000 Preferred trot.
Local stalwarts Rock Of Cashel (Corey Callahan) and Opulent Yankee (Andy Miller) are both in good form after fall freshening, and will start from handicapped outside post positions. Stirling Cadet (Greg Merton) and Cash Me Out (Billy Dobson) are in from Saratoga, where they were among the best trotters at the Spa late in the season. Elysium Lindy (Brett Miller) won in a career-best 1:54 last week at The M and is 2-for-2 since joining the Burke barn. The accomplished pair of Iron Mine Bucky (Marcus Miller) and Muscles On Fire (Jim Marohn, Jr.) complete the field in the feature.
The Meadowlands is still giving away money to those that sign up for the "Win Your Share” promotion. Post time is 6:35 p.m.
