The 2017 edition of the New Jersey Sire Stakes for three-year-olds will come to its conclusion with the $100,000 finals for all four divisions this Friday night (June 2) at the Meadowlands Racetrack.

The speedy pacing colt Every Way Out has been invincible at both two and three, as he has swept through the state-restricted program with nary an anxious moment. There is no reason to think Friday's race will be any different, as he'll be facing the same group of overmatched rivals and has been installed as the heavy 1-5 choice on the morning line from Post 2 in the second race.

Tim Tetrick has been aboard for all of the previous successes and will drive Every Way Out on Friday for trainer Dylan Davis and owners Taylor, Basen, Gold and Lazzaro.

Another prohibitive favourite is the pacing filly Colorful Jasmine, who has dominated her rivals in both preliminary legs for the Cancelliere brothers, John (owner) and Tom (trainer).

The homebred Philos Hanover lass lowered her record to 1:52.3 via an open-length leg-two win last week with plenty left. She will start from the Post 1 for Corey Callahan in Friday's fourth race.

Both of the trotting races have a clear cut favourite in each division as well.

Race 5 will feature the gifted filly Ariana G, last season's top freshman. She was held out of leg two after her crushing 1:52.2 victory for Yannick Gingras in the first leg. Nine other talented sophomore fillies have accepted the challenge, but the road to the winner's circle clearly goes through Ariana G. Jimmy Takter trains the homebred champion for Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld.

What The Hill has been dominant against the trotting colts. He swept through both legs with the greatest of ease, lowering his record to 1:52.2 in the process for trainer Ron Burke and his partners Our Horse Cents Stable, J&T Silva and Deo Volente Farms. Driver David Miller will direct the fortunes of What The Hill from Post 2 in Friday's seventh race.

A good supporting card, the popular 60 second wagering spree promotion and a party on Victory Terrace with music and host Gary Dileo await your visit to live racing.

Post time for the card is 7:15 p.m.
