DOUBLE MILLIONAIRE MARKET SHARE STEPS TO THE LINE IN THE TVG/MEADOWLANDS FFA

MANALAPAN, NJ – Market Share, the New Jersey-sired son of Revenue, will step up to the starting line in the tenth race on Friday night, June 21, 2013 at the Meadowlands, facing nine others in the $50,000 TVG/Meadowlands Free for All Trot.

Points will be earned in the event, along with other designated races, to determine who advances to the $500,000 final on November 30 at the Meadowlands.

Market Share, driven by Tim Tetrick and trained by Linda Toscano, won the 2012 Hambletonian on his way to Three-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year honors. This will be his second start of the year. He won his 2013 debut on May 31 in 1:51.1.

Coupled in the wagering with Wishing Stone, the winner of the Maxie Lee at Harrah’s Philadelphia, Market Share is rated the 8-5 favorite from post eight.

Lifetime, Market Share has 16 wins, five seconds and three thirds from 26 starts for a bankroll of $2,052,655.

There are no soft spots in the lineup which also includes the Jimmy Takter-trained duo of Uncle Peter and Guccio, Cutler winner Sevruga, Undercover Strike, Big Sky Storm, Knows Nothing, Another Amaretto and Arch Madness, recently returned from finishing second in the Elitlopp in Sweden.

The Friday night card also includes a pair of $22,700 finals – the Flower Child for trotters and the Cathedra Dot Com for pacing mares – and a semi final of the Summer Survivor Series.

For fans of camel and ostrich racing, those events will be presented between live harness races on Saturday, June 22.
