FRIDAY FEATURES AT THE MEADOWLANDS

-- Meadowlands Media Department

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- March 16, 2017 -- Friday night's race card will tip off the weekend of racing at The Meadowlands with a real good field of trotters opening the card and a pair of GSY finals in a supporting role.

The morning line choice in the trotting feature is Melady's Monet who made a successful return to the wars last week, converting a perfect pocket steer by Brett Miller to edge by a stubborn Opulent Yankee in the shadow of the wire for the win. The competition is even deeper this time around with Rose Run Parker joining DW's NY Yank to form a potent Burke stable entry and Opulent Yankee looking to continue his recent form spree.

Melady's Monet will seek to repeat from post six in the seven horse $20,000 conditioned trot for trainer Kevin McDermott and owner Melady's Enterprises of Florida.

The GSY trotting final comes along in race two with a competitive group led by Joe Lee and his mount Karets who romped by seven lengths three starts back, the iron tough Keegan and his owner-driver John Calabrese and last week's surprise winner Landonfitz who scored at odds of more than 20-1 giving club founder Dave Yarock his first win in the series.

The gentlemen return with pacers in the third where there's an excellent chance for some "hardball" between Bob Davis whose pacer Who Do You Like set the all-time amateur speed record of 1:53.1 in the first leg and Hannah Miller with Stimulus Plan who left Davis and his charge out in the brisk spring air in last week's race.

Friday is St Patrick's Day and The Meadowlands will celebrate the wearin' o' the green with a "Go For Greenbacks" contest that rewards lucky fans with a $50 voucher when a winning driver has green in his driving colors.

March Madness has begun in Victory Sports Bar with food and drink specials.

Post time is 7:15 p.m.
