BARIMAH BLASTS OFF AGAIN IN MEADOWLANDS FEATURE

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

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- April 1, 2017 -- While trainer Scott Di Domenico was watching his Missile J win again in the Levy Series at Yonkers, another more recent acquisition to his stable was turning heads again at the Meadowlands.

Barimah, who made his Di Domenico debut last week with a lifetime-best 1:50.3 win against conditioned foes at the Big M, backed up that performance with an equally impressive score in an identical time in the featured $20,000 upper level pace.

After Alberto Contador led the field through a half mile in :56.1, David Miller launched Barimah first over. Barimah continued to battle Alberto Contador through three-quarters in 1:23 with Artistic Major looking to find room up the pylons from his pocket spot.

Barimah disposed of Alberto Contador and paced away from him to win by two lengths in 1:50.3.

"He has been scary good," said Di Domenico. "His last few starts before we bought him, he was really charging home and he had some really good starts in Australia before he came over here so we took a shot on him."

Barimah is owned by Brian Carsey, John Mcgill and Adam Friedland. Carsey and Mcgill are also partners on Missile J.

"Those two guys get all the credit on pulling the trigger on Barimah too," said Di Domenico. "All I can say is I'm sure glad they did."

Tyler Buter was the driving star of the night with three wins. Hall of Famer David Miller had a pair of wins on his return weekend at the Meadowlands and Andrew McCarthy also had two winners. Ron Burke had a training double.

Total handle was $2,463,962.

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