MEDUSA EXTENDS WINS STREAK TO FIVE AT BIG M

The Meadowlands Website

-- Dave Little, Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- July 8, 2016 -- Medusa continued to wreak havoc in the fillies and mares open handicap division at the Meadowlands Friday night, taking the featured $25,000 pace by 2½ lengths in dominant wire-to-wire fashion.

The 5-year-old daughter of Bettor’s Delight has now won three straight Big M female features and five in a row overall for owners Randall Bendis and Thomas Pollack.

Yannick Gingras had the drive behind the Andrew Federico Jr. trainee and left the gate quickly. Longshot Inittowinafortune extended her slightly around the first turn before Medusa made the top at the quarter in :27.
A rated second fraction saw the 6-5 public choice hit the half in :55 as none of her six opponents came after the eventual winner. Medusa was clear of the field by 2¼ lengths at three-quarters in 1:22.2 before cruising under the wire – while lowering her lifetime-best for a third straight start – and stopping the clock in 1:49. The fast-closing Katie Said, sent off as the 2-1 second choice, finished second, while Inittowinafortune held on for third.
Medusa returned $4.40 to win and has now won 11 of 20 starts this season.

NOTABLE: Every Way Out rolled by 4½ lengths in 1:55 in the final leg of the New Jersey Sire Stakes for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers as the 1-9 favorite and figures to once again be an extremely short price in next Friday’s final. … Marion Marauder ($15.20), last when they turned for home, rallied through the stretch and found a seam late to take the 3-year-old open colt and gelding trot in 1:52.2, gunning down 2-5 favorite Dog Gone Lucky nearing the wire. …

The 5th race 20 cent Jackpot Super High Five failed to have a single-ticket winner, upping the carryover for the next racing program to $31,911.51. … All-source wagering totaled $2,554,374, an increase of $347,436 over the corresponding card from a year ago. … Racing resumes at the Big M Saturday at 7:15 p.m.
