Meadowlands: Gingras rolls a 7; Holdingallthecards still unbeaten in 2013

Driver Yannick Gingras won 7 races on Saturday at the Meadowlands.

Yannick Gingras is in the zone.  He found his way to the winner's circle seven times on the 13-race Saturday program, four of which found him teamed up with trainer Ron Burke.  In fact, over the last six nights of racing, Gingras has won 18 races.  This streak is similar to one that we saw from Gingras last year when he opened up a massive lead in the driver standings.  It appears he is on his way to doing that again.

The Exit 16W series continued tonight and saw one enormous upset and another thrilling finish.  In the first division, Hang Ten lit up the tote board at 32-1 for John Campbell, paving the way for a carryover of the early Pick 4.  That carryover led to a total pool of the late Pick 4 of over $167,000.

The second division saw a wild finish with four noses on the wire.  In the end it was favored Holdingallthecards who once again scored a narrow victory, running his record to 6 for 6 on the year.

It was yet another great night for the Meadowlands handle.  The total handle of $3,565,691 was the third time the total handle has gone past the $3.5 Million mark this year.  In 2012, the only race card that accomplished that feat was Hambletonian Day.

Racing returns on Thursday night with first post time of 7:15 P.M.  For more information, log onto meadowlandsracetrack.com

I singled John Campbell in the third race, but just win/place bet. I'm glad Yannick's run wasn't 8 wins. Interesting to me was that the DQ of a horse that interfered with Hang Ten in his previous race was not documented in the program I bought at the simulcast facility in Floriday. But I was aware of it because Meadowlands provides excellant information on Entries and Results, at their site. Hang Ten was placed 5th after the DQ. The program I bought showed him finishing sixth. What brought me to Hang Ten was his previous trip and fast close 26 and 2 in that previous effort. A good four yearold with big up side potential. Thank you to Meadowlands who have brought me back to Standardbred racing. You can watch all the action at their site. RD btr
