Coming off his first loss since December 13th, Rockeyed Optimist returned to the Meadowlands with a vengeance, winning his division of The Sonsam harness racing pacing series in 1:50.3. The first $17,500 division went post-ward as race two on the Saturday program with a field of six and Rockeyed Optimist was sent off as the 3/5 betting choice from post position one. The early speed came from Bettorever, fresh off his runner-up effort in round one with Corey Callahan. In fact, Bettorever would proceed to cut the mile, establishing fractions of 26.3, 55.4 and 1:24.4, stealing a 58.1 middle-half under no pressure, that is until Rockeyed Optimist and Brett Miller made their move. The favorite, a son of Rocknroll Hanover, sat back in fourth position early on and was guided to the outside approaching the half-mile pole where he would proceed first over, eventually racing on even terms with the pace-setter. Turning for home, Rockeyed Optimist exploded and powered away from the field winning in a sparkling 1:50.3, pacing the final quarter in an absurdly-fast 25.4. The win was one of four on the card for Brett Miller on the heels of his four-win performance Friday night. Rockeyed Optimist is trained by Steve Elliot for Anthony Perretti, Virginia Berkner, A and B Srable and Joseph Battaglia. With the win, Rockeyed Optimist has surged past $100,000 in lifetime earnings while earning his ninth win of his career from 23 starts. Major Uptrend will be shooting for the series sweep, following his win in the second division of The Sonsam on Saturday night. After briefly allowing JK Patriot to claim the early lead, Yannick Gingras quickly guided Major Uptrend to the lead before the opening quarter and would click off fractions of 28, 55.4 and 1:23.4 before facing just mild pressure from Company Man who moved first over. In the stretch, Gingras called to the Somebeachsomewhere gelding and the response was evident as there was never an anxious moment through the stretch. Major Uptrend won while racing well within himself equaling the mark of 1:50.3, identical to the winning time of Rockeyed Optimist in the first division of The Sonsam. Major Uptrend is trained by Ron Burke for Howard Taylor. In other racing action, National Seelster, the three year old colt that opened eyes winning upon debut two weeks ago returned to the races on Saturday night and returned with another win. Allowed to sit the pocket throughout the mile, National Seelster found room late in the stretch up the pylons and accelerated rapidly to win again, in 1:53.1. National Seelster, a son of Bettor's Delight is now two for two to start the career. An intriguing match-up could be on the horizon between a pair of undefeated and lightly raced three olds in the William "Buddy" Gilmour series between National Seelster and Wiggle It Jiggle It. The latter won a division of the first round of the Sonsam series and will square off with Rockeyed Optimist and Major Uptrend in the final of that series before tackling National Seelster in the Gilmour. The fifth race Jackpot Super Hi-5 went unclaimed, but there were only two winning tickets which were paid a dividend of $4,257. The last race jackpot also carried over to the tune of $123,827 into the last race on the Thursday program, which will begin at 7:15 P.M. Darin Zoccali

The Sonsam pacing series attracted 20 entries for its first round of harness racing competition on Saturday night at The Meadowlands, split into two divisions. The first division went postward in race seven and featured the Escort Champion, Company man, who was sent off as the slight 9/5 favorite. JK Patriot, third in the Escort Final was also in the field. The newcomer on the scene was the three year old invading from Dover, Wiggle It Jiggleit for George Teague Jr. The speed came from JK Patriot, who made the lead early and hit the opening quarter in 27 seconds before yielding that lead to the oncoming Company Man who cleared the lead down the backstretch, reaching the half in 56 seconds. At that point, Montrell Teague decided it was time to move Wiggle It Jiggleit into contention as they went first over around the far turn, into a 26.4 third quarter. But, that did not phase the three year old one-bit as Wiggle It Jiggleit powered through the stretch, lengthening his stride and won impressively in 1:49.4, establishing a sub-1:50 mark in just his third lifetime start. As of now, the sky appears the limit for this three year old son of Mr Wiggles. Clyde Francis trains the gelding for George Teague Jr. Inc. Bettorever was second and JK Patriot checked in third. The second division of the Sonsam featured an interesting matchup of the razor sharp Rockeyed Optimist and the highly talented Major Uptrend. It would be Major Uptrend, The Escort runner-up who established the pace through fractions of 27.1, 55.1 and 1:23.3, while seeing pressure from Fritzie Pic Up Man who was challenging first over. In the meantime, Rockeyed Optimist, the 1/2 favorite was looming second over as the field turned for home and he would flip three wide for the drive. Yannick Gingras then asked Major Uptrend for more speed and he and Rockeyed Optimist would sprint to the wire together, with Major Uptrend narrowly holding off the favorite to win in 1:50.4. The winner is trained by Ron Burke for Howard Taylor. Rediscovery was third. The $25,000 Dash For The "C" Notes Final was also contested for the pacers on Saturday with 6/5 favorite Dragon Lore living up to his advanced billing, scoring an impressive victory in 1:51.1 with Corey Callahan in the sulky, rallying from just off the pace. Road Untraveled was second and Sir Melo's Z Tam third. Dragon Lore is trained by Mark Capone for Thomas Magliozzo, Steve Schachner and Christopher Duffy. Both Jackpot Super Hi-5 wagers continued to see their carryovers grow. The fifth race carryover is now $16,540.98, while the last race carryover grew to $102,498, surpassing the $100,000 mark for the first time. The bet continues to grow in popularity, with its largest amount bet into the last race pool to date on Saturday of over $36,000. Yannick Gingras won the last three races on the card, totaling four wins on the Saturday program after a grand slam on Friday as well. The 13-race Saturday program handled $3,328,477. Racing returns on Thursday with a 10-race program featuring the second round of the Charles Singer Memorial Trotting Series. Post time is 7:15 P.M. Darin Zoccali
