EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Kindergarten Classic will be in the spotlight Saturday (Nov. 2) night at the Meadowlands, when $868,300 in purse money will be doled out among four finals in the harness racing event for 2-year-olds. El Ideal, who is off a 6¼-length score last week, takes on Sky Castles, a winner of two in a row, in the colts and geldings trot. The filly trot pits Creature Of Habit against Senorita Rita. Both come in having won two straight. In the filly pace, Rocknificent and Hen Party will renew their rivalry with both having won two in a row. When the pair met on Oct. 22, it was Rocknificent prevailing by just a neck. Chief Mate (1:50.4) and Ideal Perception (1:51.3) both established lifetime-bests in taking their respective final preliminaries and top the male pace. Live racing takes place this Friday and Saturday. Post time is 7:15 p.m. WHHC QUALIFIER: The World Harness Handicapping Championship returns to the Meadowlands on Saturday (Nov. 2), with the first of six qualifiers presented by DerbyWars.com.
