"Eye" on Meadowlands for January 12-14

Email

Thursday, January 12

RELENTLESS G (NW2) - Gelding was the only wire to wire winner on the 10-race card.

Friday, January 13

SUSQUEHANNA BELLE (NW10000) - Saved ground and wasn't asked until two-thirds of the way down the lane. She trotted home willingly up the cones and gets to drop down to the basement next time; interesting.
HEZ DA MAN N (7500CLM) - Was caught in a tough spot behind tired horses and didn't fire right away when clear, but found his best in mid-stretch and seemed to appreciate the added distance. I'd be tempted to play this guy from a better post with a catch-driver.

Saturday, January 14

GOLDEN RECEIVER (PRESIDENTIAL) - Went the fastest mile ever in the month of January. Huge mile!
ROCKIN THE HOUSE (PRESIDENTIAL) - Went to the front and was shuffled back to last. When clear he paced home very willingly.

(Previous horses which have yet to race)
Friday, January 6

VALDEZ (NW10000) – Gelding got stuck in traffic and finished a willing second when clear. He will stay in the same class next week.
NOTORIOUS BLUESTONE (NW10000) – Was off 23 days prior to this start. He swung wide from last off the final turn and rallied home with steady trot. He had no shot.
ROSE RUN HOOLIGAN (INVITATIONAL) – Was away in the pocket but broke and fell back to last. He had to wait for a clear path and finished up with steady trot in a nice effort considering the break.
TYREE (15000CLM) – Faced some stretch traffic and gained mildly when clear. Given a switch to a top driver he could perk up at a price.
