I'mtogoodtobetrue's been waiting for this


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Two $55,000 New Jersey-bred handicaps top the first of a pair of "make-up" Tuesdays at The Meadowlands Racetrack.

The Accordant and the Queen Lib headline a nine-race card that gets under way at 1:10 p.m.

The Big M also added an Election Day matinee on Nov. 8 to help offset the seven weather-related cancellations this meet.

Both Tuesday stakes will be run at six furlongs.

Trainer Ned Allard has been waiting patiently to run I'mtoogoodtobetrue in the Queen Lib, for fillies and mares. The race was originally scheduled for Oct. 8, but has been a victim of multiple washouts.

Allard also entered I'mtoogoodtobetrue in the $65,000 Miss Oceana, a restricted stakes on Wednesday, opening day at Aqueduct.

But all things being equal, Allard is leaning strongly toward the Queen Lib.

"Most likely she will race here on Tuesday," Allard said. "We entered in both races because you just never know what's going to happen, but she is a Jersey-bred."

I'mtoogoodtobetrue has had a solid season with a pair of victories and $110,460 in earnings.

"She has a big heart and is gifted with some natural talent," Allard said.

I'mtoogoodtobetrue returns to six furlongs after a pair of Jersey-bred handicap routes at Monmouth Park. She won the Girl Powder at one mile on Aug. 21 and most recently ran third in the $100,000 Jersey Girl at a mile and 70 yards after pressing the pace.

"We freshened her up, but actually, we had no choice because there weren't any races for her," Allard said. "I think she will bounce back to the shorter distance just fine. They are pretty much the same horses she has faced all year."

Familiar faces in the field include Totally Precious and Summer Sting, the one-two finishers in Monmouth's Eleven North Handicap.

Add Eastern Gale, the Goldfinch Handicap winner, to the mix and you have a highly competitive race.

In the Accordant, trainer Kelly Breen will send out an entry of Monsterinmyroom and Second Collection.

Monsterinmyroom is a 3-year-old gelding making his second stakes start.

In the Jersey Breeders Handicap at 1 1/16 miles, he vied for the lead before fading to sixth.

Monsterinmyroom bounced back to win a statebred allowance race. Joe Bravo has the return call.

Entrymate Second Collection is a 6-year-old gelding claimed for $20,000 at Monmouth in late July. His Beyer Speed Figures in three starts for Breen have improved from 88 in the first outing to 98 most recently.
