BREAKFAST WITH THE BABIES

The Meadowlands Website

-- Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD,NJ -- July 9, 2016 -- Breakfast With The Babies at The Meadowlands took place under overcast skies with a slight tailwind in the homestretch and the temperature in the low 70’s.

The presence of the great Moni Maker was felt in the morning’s first race when Grandma’s Moni swept by her competition in the stretch, finishing the 2:00.2 mile with a 27.1 final quarter. Grandma’s Moni is by Donato Hanover out of All Our Moni, a daughter of Moni Maker. Tim Tetrick held the filly in third before fanning her off cover in the stretch and she sailed by the early leader Can’t I (John Campbell) who was a game second after cutting the mile. Grandma’s Moni was retained by her breeders, the Moni Maker Stable and is trained by Frank Antonacci. She looks special.

The pacing colt Lindythefourteenth made it a very good day for trainer Frank Antonacci, winning in 1:55 / 27.4 from just off the pace for Scott Zeron. The Lindy Farms Somebeachsomewhere homebred from Antoinette Hanover was racing at his third venue in three career starts, all wins. Rock The Boat (Andy Miller) was second and Long Beach (first foal of American Jewel) was a closing third for Tetrick.

True Friends was a 2:01.2 winner in her first outing for Dave Miller and trainer Nifty Norman. Miller sat behind leader Ethanol as the field trotted by three-quarters in 1:32.2, inherited the lead when that one went off stride then held sway through the stretch. Blacksirenpedia (Campbell) rallied late to be a good second and Casaubon (Tetrick) survived a first over bid to be third. The winner was a $70,000 buy at the Harrisburg sale for Mel Hartman, Nifty’s Enzed Racing Stable and RAW Equine.

Trainer Kevin McDermott’s Donato Hanover x Emmamazing filly Envy Hanover was the race three winner. Yannick Gingras sent Envy Hanover out to the early lead, yielded to Campbell and Allbassnotreble through easy middle fractions then went by under mild urging through the 28.3 end to the 2:01.3 mile. Allbassnotreble held grimly for second and Amber Ella (Tetrick) flashed good late foot to get third. Jeff Gural’s Little E LLC is the owner of the $50,000 Harrisburg purchase.

Trotting colts came around with race four where Beach Credit impressed with a 1:59 win for Dave Miller. Being the last to the lead after several early changes, Beach Credit tacked a 29.1 final panel onto the mile with something in reserve. Wutan (Gingras) was second best from the pocket and Break Free made a late gain to be third. Arden Homestead Stable and trainer Janice Connor paid $45,000 for the Credit Winner colt in Lexington.

Oddball and Kabang (Scott Zeron) traded blows through the stretch of race five with Oddball (Andover Hall x Little Rigs) prevailing in 200.1 / 28.3 for trainer-driver Jimmy Takter. John Fielding owns the winner, a $25,000 Lexington sale yearling.

Takter colts were one-two in the sixth with Sir John F (Brett Miller) getting up over the Italian bred Ready Cash colt Victor Deo IT (Gingras) in the shadow of the wire to win in 1:59.1 / 28.3. Put in play early from the outside, Sir John F sat a pocket as Golden Kronos led until the stretch then split rivals for the win. Victor Deo was a very good second while Golden Kronos held third. John & Jim Fielding, Herb Holland and Kevin Mc Kinlay own the winner, a $45,000 buy in Lexington last fall.

Tony Alagna fillies were one-two in the first pacing filly race with Ann Hill (Campbell) emerging from the pocket to track down stable-mate Everyone’s Watching (Zeron) in the last strides of a 27.3 end to the 1:55.3 mile. The winner is a Tom Hill homebred Roll With Joe from Taxi Fare Hanover.

Jimmy Marohn, Jr picked up the drive on Caviart Malin for Nifty Norman and got her home, closing into the 27.3 final quarter of a mile in 1:55.4 mile. Let’s Have A Party (Tetrick) and Beautiful Hill (Campbell) were across the track for second and third. The winner is a Well Said filly from Pretty Major owned by Caviart Farms who paid $20,000 for her at Harrisburg.


The Stohler Stable homebred Captain Velocity won today for driver Tim Tetrick, cutting the mile and drawing away powerfully in the 27 flat final quarter of his 1:55 mile. Incidentally, he becomes the twelfth 155 credit already this season for his sire Somebeachsomewhere, information (as well as bagels) courtesy of Murray Brown. Tony Alagna trains Captain Velocity and it’s entirely possible that Trent Stohler placed him with Tony when they broke camp at Sunshine Meadows due to the similarities this colt shares in both name and appearance (and perhaps talent) with Tony’s champion Captaintreacherous. Deo De Janiero (Joe Bongiorno) was second and American Dreamer (Campbell) a drifting third.

Live racing tonight at The Meadowlands includes an elimination for next week’s Meadowlands Pace and the $250,000 Graduate finals with Freaky Feet Pete and Wiggle It Jiggleit slated to square off in the featured tenth race.
