FRIDAY MEADOWLANDS OBSERVATIONS

-- Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- November 10, 2016 -- While the live racing this weekend at The Meadowlands will feature the $1.2 million finals of the TVG Championship Series on Saturday night, Friday's card is an amalgamation of overnight events composed largely of trotters and pacing mares.

A solid field of nine distaff pacers will go forth for a purse of $17,500 in race seven. From her assigned outside post, Not Before Eight must be considered a prime contender for young driver Kyle Husted. Kyle picked up the drive for top trainer Steve Elliott, a grand opportunity for the 25 year-old Midwesterner to cultivate a relationship that may yield future benefits.

Not Before Eight has a powerful closing kick as evidenced by the 26.2 end to her 1:49.3 career best taken over the East Rutherford mile oval on Hambletonian eve. Chances are any path to a victory on Friday will be fashioned from well back early on, this being her return after a brief freshening. Ernest Hartman of Toledo, Ohio owns the four-year-old Bettors Delight mare.

The lead promotion on Friday is the recognition of our servicemen with a 50% discount on the Pink buffet for all veterans.

As per usual, free program pages are available for the $50,000 Guaranteed Late Pick-4 wager.
