There were two divisions of Monte racing at the Meadowlands Friday

Hambletonian monte action was in full display tonight at the Meadowlands with two $5,000 divsiions.

The first division went to Chinese Cuisine (5g Revenue S-Missysmandarine-Malabar Man) with Tina Duer up for Peninsula Farm and trainer Brett Bittle in a sharp 1:58.1, final quarter :29.3. Chinese Cuisine and Duer won with ease by four and three-quarter lengths.

The winning connection scored decisively over Amoreena with Marielle Enberg in the irons. Muscolo finished third for Michelle Crawford. Ambro Doyle (Ashley Eldred) and Admirable Hanover (Jennifer Connor) earned the other checks.

The second division went to the frontrunnerr Pointe Of Honour (7g Striking Sahbra-Garland Bonita-Garland Lobell)) ridden by Tara Hynes for trainer Frank Scamporino Jr. and owner James Datri.

This pair scored in 1:59.1 by two and one-half lengths over Flowing James and Emma Pettersson with Flex The Muscle third for Ray Schnittker. Waldorf Hall (Jenny Melander) and Celebrity Playboy (Maria Andersson) also earned checks.

Top point winners from the legs will be back on the Meadowlands oval during Hambletonian Day seeking the $25,000 purse in this Hambletonian Society managed monte event. Be there to applaud the participants and thank the sponsors and Meadowlands management for their direction and drive to make monte (under saddle) racing part of the American standardbred sport.
