Boulder Creek emerged from the fog victorious in Saturday night's $24,000 Preferred Pace feature at the Meadowlands. Owned by Larry Baron, the eight-year-old war-horse was positioned in third early, powered to the lead as the field approached the far turn, and gamely withstood the strong late pace of Winbak Speed [$3.80] for his 41st career victory.
Soul Chaser [$4.40] rallied well to finish third - just a neck behind the winner.
Boulder Creek [$6.20] completed the mile in the fog in 1:50.4 for driver Dan Dube and trainer Mark Kesmodel.
It was the fifth win of 2008 for Boulder Creek who pushed his career earnings to just under $3.4 million.
Saturday night marked closing night for the Meadowlands' Holiday Meet.
The Winter Meet begins Thursday, Jan. 1 and continues with live harness action Wednesday through Sunday.
Post time is 7:00pm Wed.-Sat. and 1:10pm on Sunday afternoon.
