It was a night of "firsts” at The Meadowlands as 23-year-old Marcus Miller made his first trip to the Meadowlands winners circle. The filly that brought him there, Ideal Ginny was doing the same, earning her first lifetime win. Miller guided his filly through a perfect pocket trip, tracking the favored Liz's Lil K K around the track, eventually sling-shoting past in the stretch in 1:55.
There was parity amongst the remainder of the driving colony as Yannick Gingras, John Campbell and Andy Miller all had driving doubles.
On the wagering front, the all sources handle was up once again. The Thursday night handle of $1,714,539 was a 12-percent increase from the $1,531,317 on this same Thursday in 2012. (Meadowlands)
