Apparently five wasn't enough. That must have been what Yannick Gingras was thinking as he took to the track Saturday night at the Meadowlands.
On the heels of a five-win night on Friday, Gingras did one better, winning six on the Saturday program. Included in his victories was a win in the featured Free For All Handicap with Bettor's Edge, who went right to the lead, setting fractions of :26.3, :54.2 and 1:22.3 before completing a wire-to-wire, tour-de-force in 1:50.
Bettor's Edge is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and the M1 Stable LLC. The win was one of three on the card for leading trainer Ron Burke.
The other story on the program was the success of horses headed to Monday's Meadowlands January Mixed Sale presented by Tattersalls. In fact, by night's end, five horses entered in the sale were victorious, including Alexie Mattosie, Allstar Legend, Emeritus Maximus, Tarpon Hanover and Wake Up Peter. The sale is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. in the back paddock at the Meadowlands.
It was another $3 million night at the Meadowlands, with the total handle just under $3.2 million. (Meadowlands)
