FALL FINAL FOUR AND TVG ELIMS HIGHLIGHT OPENING WEEKEND AT THE MEADOWLANDS

--Courtesy of the Meadowlands

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – November 9, 2015 -- Live harness racing returns to the Meadowlands on Friday, November 13, 2015, with eliminations events for the Four Final Four and the $1.2 million TVG Finals.

The $25,000 mare opens each drew fields of six with names like Bee A Magician, Shake It Cerry, Classic Martine heading up the trot and point leader Venus Delight and Sandbetweenurtoes in the pace. The $200,000 TVG finals for mares will be raced on Friday, November 20.

Six pacing horses were entered in that division, among them JK Endofandera who currently resides at the top of that list, Doo Wop Hanover, Mach It So and new shooter Arthur Blue Chip.

Seven trotters declared with Obrigado, Melady’s Monet, Master Of Law, Natural Herbie, Resolve and DW’s NY Yank to be joined by EL Titan who is making his first start in the series. Each of these opens carry a purse of $50,000 and the $400,000 TVG finals are scheduled for Saturday, November 21.

Eliminations for the $1.5 million Fall Final Four stakes for two-year-olds are also set for opening weekend.

The Three Diamonds drew eight pacing fillies. No eliminations will be needed and all advance to the $385,250 final on November 20. The eight declared are; Blue Moon Stride, Call Me Queen, I Said Please, JK Fannie, Penpal, Shezarealdeal, Skinny Dipper and Yankee Moonshine.

The Goldsmith Maid filly declarations numbered 11. A bye was accepted by the connections of Kathy Parker and the remaining 10 will race to eliminate one and join her in the $409,950 final on November 20.

The Governor’s Cup box contained 16, which split neatly into a pair of eight pacing colt eliminations on Saturday night. The top five from each will return, with elim winners drawing from posts one through six, for the $413,000 final on November 21.

Nineteen trotting colts entered for the Valley Victory so the eliminations this Saturday will be with a field of 10 and another of nine to determine which colts will compete in the $489,400 final next Saturday.

Post time is 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
