DAVID MILLER RETURNS ON FRIDAY AT THE MEADOWLANDS

The Meadowlands Website

-- Meadowlands Media Department

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- March 30, 2017 -- Two-time defending Dan Patch "Driver of the Year" David Miller makes his first local appearance of the season as racing returns to The Meadowlands on Friday evening with eleven contests scheduled beginning at 7:15 p.m.

The trotting feature is race six, a conditioned event for a purse of $18,000. It's a well matched field of seven with Second Sister, Appomattox and Classical Annie moving up off winning efforts, Doubleday and Crazy About Pat shipping in from Yonkers while Crosby's Clam Bake and Opulent Yankee defend their turf at the top level.

Classical Annie's gets underway from post five in the seven horse field. Last week's win was via disqualification, though she was beaten a mere nose for the conventional score. She's always in the hunt for the Burke Stable and will have the services of the above mentioned Dave Miller.

Second Sister absolutely dominated a field with her gate to wire romp in a career best 1:54.1 last Friday. The Ontario-bred has drawn the coveted rail post position for owner Jerold Hawks and the father son team of Todd (trainer) and Tyler (driver) Buter.

Appomattox has been the shining star for Lucas Wallin's fledgling operation thus far with a pair of easy wins against lesser in three 2017 starts. The young Scandinavian opened his own barn last fall and his work with this class master should draw the interest of potential clients. Reima Kuisla Stable owns and "Captain" Corey Callahan will drive from post three on Friday.

The always hotly contested amateur races are on the bill in races two (pace) and three (trot) as legs of the current Meadowlands based GSY short series.

The standard horizontal wager guarantees are in place and free program pages are available to get a leg up on the $50,000 Late Pick 4.

Make plans to attend on Saturday where the $50 entry fee "Last Chance Qualifier" gives one final shot at a seat for the $50,000 World Harness Handicapping Challenge set for April 29. It's a good opportunity to secure a spot in the Big Show for small money.
