Tell All will try to become the second horse in three years to win both the North America Cup and the Meadowlands Pace. Rocknroll Hanover did it in 2005.

North America Cup runner-up Sutter Hanover prepped for this week's Pace elims with a 1:56 qualifier last Friday at Chester Downs.

After a dominant 1:50.2 mile in the New Jersey Sire Stakes Final, Always A Virgin took last week off. Joe Holloway, one of the Meadowlands' Top 5 all-time trainers, looks for his first win in the track's signature event.

Kenneth J also took a week off after a 1:50.4 win in the New York Sire Stakes. Linda Toscano aims to be the first female trainer to harness a Pace winner.

Artriverderci finally added one to the win column in the Hoosier Cup last Saturday. He is in good company - Real Desire won both races in 2001.

Yankee Skyscaper got back on the beam with a pocket-sitting eruption in the Jersey Cup last week.

Laughing Art won an open for three-year-olds in 1:50.4 last Saturday at the Meadowlands. Trainer Bill Elliott, who won the last two Haughton finals [with Dr No & Leading Xample] is geared up for his first Pace contender.

Southwind Lynx has not raced since finishing fourth in his North America Cup elimination on June 9. He looks to be the first horse to win a million-dollar event on both the half-mile [Rooney at Yonkers] and mile track.

Home Bed Advantage got a two-week refresher after finishing third in the Cleveland Classic on June 23 at Northfield.

Pandoras Sox just missed by a nose to Laughing Art last week. Treatment with Lasix seems to have helped this colt regain the solid form he showed as a freshman just in time.
