We have a great weekend of stakes and overnight action throughout North America. Saturday is chock full of top events that will take us to the Meadowlands for the $175,000 Cutler Memorial Final at the Meadowlands, plus NJSS action and a great FFA Pace. Earlier in the day it’s the debut of Shake It Cerry in the PASS at the Meadows and there is PASS 3YO Colt Pace action at Pocono Downs. Good Luck!
$99,000 Trot PA Sire Stakes 3YO Filly The Meadows
8th race SATURDAY AFTERNOON – Two-Year-Old Filly Trotter of the Year, Shake It Cerry, makes her 2014 debut in a tough situation going against a few decent other fillies, but she is in a total class class above this group and figures just float on out to the lead and wire the field. Use Take The Money and Harley Momma in exotic plays.
$50,000 Pace The Laverne Hill Memorial Mares FFA Scioto Downs
7th race SATURDAY – This is not the field they were hoping for as it seems somewhat weak for such a nice purse this time of year yet most of those from the Matchmaker Series at Yonkers didn’t want to make the trip out west. Camille can outshine this group as she is the lone mare to come west after the Matchmaker Series. Only millionaires in the field, she can take the goose egg off the win column this year by laying over this group. Use Igottafeelinfran and Radar Contact in exotic plays.
$38,000 Pace Open Handicap Yonkers Raceway
6th race SATURDAY – If not for P H Supercam being so razor sharp this season this would be a very competitive field. P H Supercam is on a three-race win streak and does not look like anyone can stop him now. Gets tested with first start from bad post in nearly two months. Use Heston Blue Chip and Statesman N in exotic plays.
$175,000 Trot Arthur J. Cutler Memorial FFA Meadowlands
7th race SATURDAY – What a great lineup for this rich final. Every horse in this field has a legit shot at winning. But after his ultra impressive grind it out world record tying 1:50.1 mile last week you just gotta love Sebastian K. If driver/trainer Ake Svanstedt has gotten after his horse last week they would have shattered the world mark and maybe they will do it in here. Sebastian K is the real deal. Use Market Share and Modern Family in exotic plays.
$66,763 Pace PA Sire Stakes 3YO Colts Pocono Downs
8th race SATURDAY – There are four great divisions today but I think this is the toughest of them all. Four standouts that can win it. I’m going with Let’s Drink On It who was a stakes winner last season and he just romped by five at Hoosier Park in 1:50.1 last quarter mile in :26.3. That’s impressive. Use McWicked and Allstar Partner in exotic plays.
$34,000 Pace Preferred Woodbine
10th race SATURDAY – Strong field of top pacers do battle here and I like Apprentice Hanover. Has returned to stomping grounds from the Levy Series where he just got nipped at the wire in the S567,000 final. Rested and will make the most of starting from the rail. Use Lucan Hanover and Captive Audience in exotic play.
$30,000 Pace FFA Handicap Meadowlands
11th race SATURDAY – This will be a great race with plenty of action. Rockin Amadeus is on a roll, Allstar Legend is hot, Golden Receiver is the class of the field but Bandolito get a slim call in here off super strong miles at Pocono and Dover Downs. With any cover or first-over he can grind it out against these. Use Golden Receiver and Warrawee Needy in exotic plays.
$50,500 Pace NJSS 3YO Colts Meadowlands
12th race SATURDAY – Big field with some top horses in it. The big question is which Western Vintage will show up. The one that can win going away or the one that will break stride and be distanced as we saw last week. I’m betting what ever happened last week was a fluke and he will rebound and make amends. Has too much class to lose in here. Use Doo Wop Hanover and Rock Out in exotic plays.
