GIANT MILE FOR K RYAN BLUECHIP IN BIG M FEATURE
 
The Meadowlands Website

-- Dave Little, Meadowlands Media Relations

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- December 1, 2018 -- Off a pair of respectable tries, it was clear that K Ryan Bluechip could be competitive at the non-winners of $15,000 level at the Meadowlands, but what remained uncertain was, could he beat them?

Now we know.

In the Saturday night conditioned pacing feature at the Big M, Maroma Beach was the slight 8-5 public choice and hit the quarter first in :27. K Ryan Bluechip, fourth in the early going, was up to engage the leader at the half (:55) and the pair continued to battle to the three-quarter mark (1:22.4).

But instead of caving in after going first-over, K Ryan Bluechip continued to find more, powering away from Maroma Beach through the stretch to record a 1-length win in the $16,000 event. Tact Tate N (the 9-5 second choice) rallied for second while Maroma Beach settled for third.

K Ryan Bluechip, who paid $7.00 to win as the third choice in the wagering, is trained by Virgil Morgan Jr., was driven by Brett Miller and is owned by Carl Howard and Brian Witt. A veteran with a lifetime mark of 1:49.2 taken last year at the Red Mile, K Ryan Bluechip is a 6-year-old son of Art Major-Fool That I Am who completed his mile in 1:50.2 in winning for the sixth time this year in 30 starts. Lifetime, hes 29-for-96 and has earned $368,804.

A LITTLE MORE: All-source handle on the 12-race card was $2,113,898, the fifth straight Saturday where wagering topped the $2 million mark. The 50-Cent Pick-4 pool came close to reaching six figures for a second straight Saturday, coming up just short at $98,454. Driver Corey Callahan had three winners on the program while Mike Merton, Brett Miller and Dexter Dunn had two apiece. The Big Ms schedule will change slightly for the month of December as the track will add Thursdays to its race week, effective immediately, with the usual 7:15 p.m. post time. Take note that there will be no live racing on Saturday, Dec. 15, with the New York Jets hosting the Houston Texans at MetLife Stadium.
