CARRYOVERS BOLSTER LATE PICK 4 POOL, HIGH 5 JACKPOT SCORE

-- James Witherite, Meadowlands racing media

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- December 10, 2016 -- Carryovers yielded a large Pick 4 pool and a hefty payday for one player in Saturday (December 10) evening’s Jackpot High 5 at The Meadowlands.

The night’s featured seventh race began a Late Pick 4 sequence that boasted a carryover of over $39,000, and players responded with $236,988 in new money. Similarly, a carryover of $57,161 and double-digit horses sweeping the top three positions prompted a $68,028.42 dividend in the closing race 20¢ Jackpot High 5 at The Big M.

To Beach His Own ($29.20) keyed the 4-6-3-5-8 combination, which was held by a single player through the Oregon simulcast hub.

Muscle Diamond victorious in Big M return

A year on the sidelines failed to deter Muscle Diamond ($6.40), who advanced with live cover before striking the front in mid-stretch and holding sway in the evening’s $18,000 top-level conditioned trot.

John Campbell settled the 4-year-old Muscle Hill entire in mid-division as early pacesetter Aldebaran Eagle (Andy Miller) controlled early splits of :27.4 and :56.1 before sliding second-over behind Rock of Cashel (Corey Callahan) on the far turn. Muscle Diamond was towed into second through a :28.3 third quarter, advanced on his own accord to put away Rock of Cashel in mid-stretch, but he wasn’t home free yet. A pair of late challengers emerged—Kelsey’s Keepsake (Joe Bongiorno) from third-over and Classical Annie (Jim Marohn, Jr.) up the pegs from the pocket—yet Muscle Diamond kept them a neck and a half-length at bay respectively, prevailing in 1:53.

Trainer Brett Bittle co-owns 7-time winner Muscle Diamond with Charles Keller, III, Charles Keller, IV, and E. Daniel Bittle.

David Miller led all drivers with three wins on the 13-race program, while Brett Miller tallied another two after his Friday grand slam.

Total betting turnover for the evening was $2,527,155.

Players and horsemen alike are advised that next week’s racing schedule at The Meadowlands consists of live cards on Thursday (December 15) and Friday (December 16), with Saturday a dark day. Post time both evenings is 7:15 p.m. Eastern.
