Nine baby races were mixed in with seven qualifiers for older horses at the Meadowlands on Thursday morning.

The fastest junior mile was turned in by American Jewel, a Brittany Farms homebred daughter of American Ideal. With trainer Jimmy Takter in the bike, American Jewel went wire-to-wire, winning by 7 ½ lengths in 1:54.

Also winning her baby race debut was Sterling Volo, by 2007 Hambo winner Donato Hanover, out of 2004 Oaks winner Silver Springs. Trainer Jan Johnson was in the bike for owners Kentuckiana Farms and Jorgen Jahre Jr. and piloted the filly to a head win in 2:03.1
