HUGE MEADOWLANDS PICK FIVE CARRYOVER RETURNS $213.70

The Meadowlands Website

-- Justin Horowitz Media Relations Manager, Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- March 11, 2017 -- More than $200,000 in new money was wagered into the Meadowlands Pick Five on Saturday night thanks to a carryover of $38,069. The sequence proved to be rather formful with four of the five winners paying $6.40 or less. The one trickier horse for handicappers was Millenium Wheel, who won the fourth race at 7/1 odds.

The winning combination returned $213.70 to 780 winners.

In the featured $18,000 conditioned pace, stakes winner Rockin Ron tuned up for the Levy Series at Yonkers with a powerful win in 1:51.4 over the Meadowlands specialist City Hall.

Joe Bongiorno settled the 8/5 favorite in midpack as City Hall set the pace in search of his seventh straight Meadowlands victory. After three quarters in 1:24, Bongiorno had Rockin Ron perfectly positioned in the second-over spot. Bongiorno tipped Ron Burke trainee three-wide into the stretch and Rockin Ron powered home with a :27.3 last quarter to win.

City Hall held second with Rodeo Romeo third.

Rockin Ron has won 22 times from 59 starts with earnings of $541,428. He holds the rare distinction of having defeated the great Wiggle It Jiggleit twice last season in the Confederation Cup and the Prix D'Ete.

Leading driver Brett Miller scored four wins, including two for Amber Buter, to give him nine for the racing week. Jim Marohn, Jr. and Patti Harmon teamed up for a pair of wins.

Total handle on the 12-race card was $2,784,638.

Racing resumes next Friday as two-day race weeks begin. For more information
