Last week was OK but nothing to write home about with some chalk coming in and the big guns in the Levy not being able to hold up. But this is a new week and plenty of racing action across North America with “Roarin” Grand Circuit action featuring the Dexter Cup Trot, Miami Valley, Meadowlands and a superb Van Rose Memorial Pace at Pocono Downs. The action takes place Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Good Luck!

$33,075 3YO Filly Trot The Lady Suffolk Freehold Raceway

3rd race FRIDAY – It may be a short field of just five fillies but they all show good trotting lines. I am going with Fastdowntheghill. This daughter of Muscle Hill is making her pari-mutuel debut, qualified with a win at age 2 and was turned out, and in her two recent qualifiers showed great speed and comes into this race off an impressive 1:58 score. Use Bella’s Spunkin and Suegrabbitnrun in exotice plays.

$33,075 3YO Filly Trot The Lady Suffolk Freehold Raceway

9th race FRIDAY – Provided that Cee Bee Yes can handle a half mile track this filly showed great speed in her two qualifying races, the fastest a 1:56.2 win at the Meadowlands. Super well bred she won $198,000 last year and looms over this field as the class of the race. Use Mistresswithmuscle and Glams K in exotic plays.

$30,000 FFA Trot Meadowlands

11th race FRIDAY – What a great matchup with only Modern Family missing from the lineup. I am going to take a shot with the old man of the race, Arch Madness. He made me look good twice last year, is coming off strong qualifying wins and in short field may work it out late to steal the show against some great competition. Use Servuga and the entry of Not Afraid/Uncle Peter in exotic plays.

$115,370 3YO Trot The Dexter Cup Freehold Raceway

10th race SATURDAY – It’s the start of season leading towards the Hambletonian. Last week Sarcastic Man was able to overcome outside post at 12-1 and upset the field so what’s stopping them from doing it again. Owner Robert Key and driver Ron Pierce have won this race before from this far out and can do it again. Use Sumatra and King City in exotic plays.

$47,253 Pace John Simpson Memorial Meadowlands

6th race SATURDAY – In his last start of the 2013 season, JK Endofanera won the $534,000 Governor Cup in impressive fashion and off his two very strong qualifying wins I think he is ready to cut loose for Ron Burke Stable. Use entry of Ideal Cowboy/Moliere Hanover and Allstar Partner in exotic plays.

$34,000 Preferred Pace Woodbine

8th race SATURDAY – After two very sharp qualifying wins, State Treasurer returns for 2014 looking to be in prime shape. He closed out 2013 with a win before being turned out and can surprise this field despite having to make his seasonal debut from an outside post. Use Thinking Out Loud and In Commando in exotic plays.

$50,000 Trot Van Rose Memorial Pocono Downs

10th race SATURDAY – This is the class race of the weekend. Every single horse in this field could be made a case for if they win. Last year this division was the most exciting throughout the year and it is shaping up that way once again. I am going to go with Bandolito as last week he came first over after a slow half and was able to grind it out in a dramatic stretch drive finish. If he can get any live cover he has the ability to score once again. Dovuto Hanover and Dancin Yankee in exotic plays.

$50,300 Pace Sam “Chip” Noble, III Memorial Miami Valley

8th race SUNDAY – What a befitting match-up in the inaugural honoring the great horsemen Chip Noble. Yagonnakissmeornot comes in as the top pacing mare in the country right now but I think that title will be short lived as I am going with Shebigstingin. World class mare is ready for action of her recent qualifiers and I am looking for her to cut loose with a big score. Use Yagonnakissmeornot and Jerseylicious in exotic plays.

$60,000 Trot Miami Valley Distaff Miami Valley Raceway

9th race SUNDAY – It’s the 2014 debut of world champion trotting mare Maven and she looks prime and ready for action. She only beat Market Share in her last qualifier and looked good doing it. Class of the field will prevail once again. Use D’Orsay and Mistery Woman in exotic plays.
