FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MEADOWLANDS

-- Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- January 5, 2017 -- Racing from The Meadowlands returns on Friday, January 6 with a thirteen race card that offers full fields, guaranteed wagers and interesting match ups.

You won't have to wait long to see night's feature as the $18,000 top trotting class opens the card. It's a well balanced field of seven with four of those coming in off wins in their most recent start. Both Crosby's Clam Bake and Opulent Yankee won last week in virtually identical times while Canadian Wildcat took a week off after an easy forwardly placed score on the class drop a fortnight past.

The enigmatic Muscle Diamond returns four weeks from his successful return to racing after losing virtually the entire four-year-old to injury. A contender for major stakes honors at age two and three, he has earned $620,000 in but 23 career starts with 7 wins and 17 top three finishes.

Muscle Diamond was beautifully prepped by crafty veteran trainer Brett Bittle for his return to racing last month. The come back score was a career best 1:53 win against a solid field, having but a single qualifier under his belt following a twelve month absence. Hall of Fame driver John Campbell has been the driver for the now five-year-old son of Muscle Hill from day one and will be aboard on Friday for owners Keller III, Keller IV, Bittle & Bittle.

On the promotional front, cash prizes totaling $2017 will be disbursed to lucky contestants and delightful dining options abound for the hungry horseplayer. Free program pages are available for the $50,000 Guaranteed Late Pick 4 courtesy of The Meadowlands and Trackmaster.

Horseplayers should be advised that the first World Harness Handicapping Contest qualifier is next Saturday, January 14 at The Meadowlands. Sign ups remain open to walk ups.

The Tattersalls January Select Mixed Sale comes up on Monday, January 16 beginning promptly at 11 a.m. The catalog is teeming with solid prospects and established earners that would look good in your barn heading into the new season, so take a look and make plans to attend.
