NORTHFIELD

12/23: 6w, no bias

12/22: 6w, no bias

12/21: 7w, no bias, sloppy track

SPUNKY MONKEY -

Left and was three wide to a :27 opener, couldn't clear and raced parked in a speed duel with the 6/5 favorite, tough trip

BIG GAME HUNTER*** -

Left from post 8 and was used hard to the lead in :27:1, was shuffled to 5th, slipped out in a blindswitch at the three quarters, finished gamely for the show

CLASSIC GENT*** -

4/5 shot left from post 4 and was parked hard by a 19-1 shot to a :26 3/5 opener, tucked second, pulled the pocket at the half and took the lead late on the third turn, was met with pressure at the three quarters and dug in gamely for the show under mild urging late

HENRY'S WAY -

Went first over pushing a :28 4/5 third quarter over the sloppy track, put away the pacesetter but was out-kicked by the closers while holding well for the show

ORSE POWER*** -

Left from post 6 and was parked the mile without cover forcing a quick pace, held well

FOREVER ROYAL*** -

Broke at the start and was far back and seemingly out of contention, caught the field, hustled up to cover to be third over, finished strongly to win easily

 

THE MEADOWS

12/23: 6w, no bias

12/22: 5w, no bias, off track

12/21: 6w, no bias, off track

MATTAMERICAN -

Left alertly from post 8, was parked to the lead in :26 3/5, set a quick pace which included a :27 1/5 third quarter under pressure, only lost by 2 lengths

TUCSON BREEZE -

Left from post 8 and was parked to the quarter for the lead, yielded and was shuffled back, showed some late trot

YOU'RE MAJESTIC -

Trotter left from post 8 and was used hard to the lead in :27, set the pace under second-half pressure and only lost by 2 lengths

 

MONTICELLO

12/23: fog, no bias, off track

12/22: 5w, no bias

12/21: 3w, + closers, two of the wire to wire winners were odds-on favorites and the other got lucky when the favorite broke, track was definitely more tiring than usual with temperatures at 38 degrees at post time

GIVEMYBEST HANOVER -

Was first over a long way from post 7, pushed a quick third quarter and held well

TERROR ATTACK -

Left from post 7 and was used hard to the lead in :28 4/5, set the pace under second-half pressure and held the show

PIECE OF THE ROCK -

Had post 6, followed poor cover, brushed sharply three wide on the final turn and finished full of pace for the win, last quarter in :28 2/5
