FRESHMAN NJSS AT THE MEADOWLANDS ON FRIDAY

The Meadowlands Website

-- Meadowlands Media Relations Department

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- July 7, 2016 -- Friday night's racing at The Meadowlands centers on the second preliminary leg of the New Jersey Sires Stakes (NJSS) for freshmen pacers and trotters. There is a single $25,000 division for each group in advance of next week's $100,000 finals.

Colt trotters open the card and Hammer Time returns after having won a division of the first leg while the other winner, New Jersey Viking, sits this one out with his slot in the final secure. Hammer Time rolled up uncovered on favored What The Hill setting up a stretch-long battle that resulted in a 26.4 final quarter from Hammer Time for the 1:58.1 win. Dave Miller has the drive back on the Muscle Hill colt from post eight of ten this week for trainer Andrew Harris and owner Glat Kosher Racing.

The pacing colts number seven in the second race. Every Way Out was a convincing winner in leg one for owner-trainer Aaron Lambert who has enlisted Tim Tetrick to drive from the rail. Lambert did the driving last week from just off the pace and when asked for speed, Every Way Out tacked a 26.1 close on to his 1:55.4 score with something left.

Eleven freshman trotting fillies populate race three with one of last week's winners, Checkmate Time, returning while the other, Ariana G, stays home. Checkmate Time (Muscle Hill) was nothing short of sensational in the first leg rallying from well back with a 26.1 final quarter to nail a game Southwind Avanti on the wire for the 1:58.1 win. She'll begin from post nine on Friday with Scott Zeron back in the bike for owner Roy Dobbins and trainer Dennis Laterza.

One must wait until race eleven for the filly pacers where Livingthedream (If I Can Dream) will defend her turf, having won the first leg impressively in 1:54.4 for Marcus Miller. Marcus put the filly into play from post ten last week dropping in third after a leave, moving to the front by the half and finishing the mile with a shut-down 27.2 final quarter. Erv Miller trains the homebred for his interests as Erv Miller Racing along with long time patron Ron Michelon.

GSY Amateurs Racing Friday

After a week's absence, the GSY Amateur Driving Club returns with a competitive field set to go in race four. Keenan and owner-trainer-driver John Calabrese have met with great success in the series as the royally-bred veteran with career earnings of more than a half million dollars has won all three GSY races in which he's participated.

Feisty Love (David Glasser) will contest the issue from the inside while Spectator K (Hannah Miller) and Keystone Thomas (Bob Hechkoff) will engage from outside posts.

Enjoy Air-Conditioned Dining

The forecast is hot for the coming weekend, all the more reason to watch the action from one of The Meadowlands grandstand dining options. Post time is 7:15 p.m.
