The Meadowlands Racetrack will feature a 12-race program this Saturday night and a solid group of seven pacers are all set to square off in the featured sixth race.

Odds On Equuleus has a reputation for speed, which driver Jordan Stratton may employ early to get into the race from his outside post. The six-year-old son of Art Major has a pair of 1:49.1 wins thus far this season and has received some welcomed class relief at the Big M after his respectable showing in last week’s 1:47 world record in the Open pace. Odds On Equuleus is trained in the Tony Alagna barn for owner and breeder Dana Parham under his nom de course of Odds On Racing.

The guaranteed horizontal wagers are in place, led by the $50,000 promise of the Late Pick 4, which will begin in Race 7. The last-race Jackpot Hi-5 carryover is now just shy of $250,000.

The last of the Triple Crown races, the Belmont Stakes, will take place on Saturday, June 11 at Belmont Park. The Belmont card will kick off at 11:30 a.m. and will be simulcast at the Meadowlands all through the day. The Big M will then kick off its program of live racing at 7:15 p.m.
