Allowance subs for two stakes

EmailEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.- The New Jersey stakes well ran dry after spouting a geyser during Breeders' Cup week at Monmouth Park.

Neither of the $60,000 stakes slated for Friday night at the Meadowlands Racetrack - the Storm Cat for 2-year-olds nor the Alysheba for main-track routers - filled.

The race office rescheduled both for Saturday.

In place of a stakes, the Friday night card features a highly competitive first-level turf allowance for fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles.

Janshawat should appreciate the shift back to grass, where the 3-year-old has a record of 1-3-1 in 6 races

"She's a very nice filly," trainer Jason Servis said. "She's been very consistent. It would be nice to go out with a bang as we close out the turf season."

Janshawat ran in the slop last time out when the race came off the turf, and it was not a positive experience. After leading for a half-mile, she faded badly in the lane.

"We had to try the slop," said Servis. "If it comes off the turf, you like to know you can run. It didn't look like she will."

Back on the turf, Janshawat will reunite with Joe Bravo, who was aboard for her maiden win Aug. 30 at Monmouth.

Servis needs a win in this spot to aid his title defense. The leading Meadowlands trainer the last two seasons, Servis entered the final two weeks of the meet in third place with 11 wins, three behind the pacesetter, Bruce Levine.

Normally, Servis would now be starting the transition to Aqueduct for the winter. This year, Servis is heading to Florida to the Palm Meadows training center.

With the grass season winding down in the region and the Big M meet about done, the turf runners in this field will be scattering.

This could be the spot for Hunsa to nail down that elusive first victory of the season. Although winless in six starts this year, the Bobby Frankel-trained filly turned in two of her best efforts the last two times she raced at the Meadowlands, finishing second and third.

Stella Nova faces a class test, returning to the allowance ranks after a pair of dominant wins over claimers. She is trained by Frankie Costa, who is also in the hunt for the title with 13 wins.

Completing the field are Carmrachkim, Deeliteful Star, Electric Sky, All Bridled, Gac's Tomboy, Sicilian Soul, Royal Wow, Karen's Idol, and Twisted Version.
