'DOWN UNDER' IMPORT OUR SKY MAJOR WINS MEADOWLANDS DEBUT

The Meadowlands Website

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

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- March 25, 2017 -- Our Sky Major brought a pretty big resume from Down Under as a multiple top-class stakes winner when he made his North American debut in February.

After another eye-catching win on Saturday in the Meadowlands pacing feature, his first ever start at the New Jersey oval, Our Sky Major has stamped himself as a horse to watch in the free-for-all ranks this season.

Joe Bongiorno worked out a textbook second-over trip for the 6/5 favorite in the field of eight and stormed down the stretch in :26.4 to win by two widening lengths in 1:51.2 over the sharp Millenium Wheel, who had won two in a row at the Big M.

"He was as nice a horse to drive as you ever can imagine," said Joe Bongiorno. "He was two fingers to drive and can do anything I ask of him. He paced that mile well in hand."

Our Sky Major is expected to return to the Levy Series at Yonkers. He finished seventh in round one last week after drawing an outside post, but closing good ground late.

One race earlier, Crawford Farms Meadowlands Pace eligible Highalator continued his rapid development with an impressive win in a conditioned pace in 1:52.2 with a :26.3 last quarter. It was his fifth straight for driver Victor Kirby and owners Daryl Bier and Charles Dombeck. The homebred son of Somebeachsomewhere - Higher And Higher is headed to the Weiss at Pocono before a start in the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes on May 6.

Corey Callahan and Vincent Fusco, Jr. combined to win a pair of races. Jim Marohn, Jr. and Pat Lachance also posted driving doubles.

Total handle was $2,551,089.

Racing resumes next Friday. Post time is 7:15 p.m.
