East Rutherford, NJ - Saturday night's feature on the racetrack at The Meadowlands is the $20,000 "Dash For The G Notes" final but a little investigation will provide some tasty tidbits that are not on the regular harness racing menu.
 
The "G Note" field is comprised of horses that competed in a pair of $10,000 claimers last week with the strong (top five from each) surviving to race for the inflated purse. The oddsmaker has designated the improving Steady Pulse as the one to knock off here. Steady Pulse led all the way from post nine last week to be a handy 2 1/4 length winner for owner Nicole Dicostanzo and his trainer, the red-hot Mike Russo.
 
Scott Zeron had his choice of winners in this one as he also steered longshot Chilli NZ to a $77.60 upset in the other division last week and he chose Steady Pulse. John Campbell will make a nice replacement on Chilli NZ for owner Michael V Gubitoso and trainer Jenny Melander.
 
Also listed under "Saturday Night Specials" will be the continuing story of the Hi 5 Jackpots and Saturday brings not two but three chances to score. We offer the standard entrée of sizeable Jackpot pools at The Meadowlands which currently stand at $64,065 in race five and $29,735 in the last race.
 
However, as the pièce de résistance available while supplies last, Woodbine has designated Saturday's eleventh race as the mandatory pay-out vehicle for their Jackpot wager which stands at $847,458. With play on the twelve horse field assembled for the race expected to be in the $2 million range, the payoffs will be huge. This article offers more detail on the bet.
 
Woodbine offers a free program download for their Saturday card, so get started early on your handicapping.
 
Off the racetrack and on the hardwood, the NCAA college hoops Final Four will be up on the big screen in Victory Sports Bar with the Duke vs Michigan State game slated to begin at 6:09pm and the highly anticipated match-up of unbeaten Kentucky and Wisconsin up at 8:49pm. The crowd is lively and food & drink specials are available.
 
First post at The Meadowlands is 7:15pm.
