Meadowlands: Final Table prevails


The scratch of Thunderello, who would have been the heavy favorite in the $48,500 Comet Stakes at The Meadowlands, left the door open for Final Table to win the 2-year-old race.

Final Table ($7.60) set a sharp pace and hung on to win the six-furlong Comet by a half-length over Boston Common. It was another 6 3/4 lengths back to the favorite, Winning Talk, in third.
