Meadowlands Qualifying Insider, 1/5/12


Mostly sunny skies and 37 degree temperatures covered the oval this morning. Let’s take a look at the bulky 20-race card.

RACE 2- HAVA KADABRA was truly the only standout on the trotting side of the card. Burke trainee made it look extremely easy.

RACE 8- GREAT VINTAGE looked much better winning his second straight qualifier; looks fit and ready to rebound from a disappointing 3-Year-Old campaign.

RACE 10- JK SOUNDOFMUSIC was very sharp today; looks ready to score right out of the box.

RACE 11- APRIL BROOK came charging home off dull cover. Trainer Ron Coyne usually has them ready right off the bench.

RACE 12- BANGBANGKISSKISS was a bit snaky early on but the unraced 3-Year-Old showed some nice signs of potential.

RACE 14- GREATHEART HANOVER split rivals unasked with plenty of pace in the lane; looks good to go.

RACE 15- PALM BEACH BOY was closing like a freight train down the lane without asking. He could provide a very nice price with a decent post draw.

RACE 16- PSILVUHEARTBREAKER looked like the horse from a few years ago today; expect a big effort in 2012 debut.
