Mr Hasani N and Bullet Bob enter the race directly off pillar-to-post wins in their most recent efforts. Mr Hasani N invades from Harrah's Philadelphia after defeating similar company twice in his last three starts, most recently springing a 13-1 upset while lasting on the lead. Andy McCarthy once again drives the 38-time winner for Darran Cassar, and the pair will start from post 4 ast the 9-2 third choice. Bullet Bob (5-1, post 3) rises after a stout effort to stave off Moonwriter in 1:51.3 last week, and Scott Zeron will take over the driving duties on the 32-time winner for trainer Mark Harder.
A $17,500 "Dash for the G-Notes" for first-level conditioned pacers shares the Saturday spotlight, with a full field of ten lining up for the night's seventh race after leading a quintet of preliminary events last week. Return to Sender N (9-2, Brett Miller, post 3), Card Shock (7-2, David Miller, post 4), Rancousy (8-1, Bongiorno, post 5), Stimulus Plan (8-1, Ginsburg, post 7), and Classic American N (10-1, Steve Smith, post 10) all seek to sweep the mini-series following their success in the preliminary round.
Fans on-track on Saturday can win a gift card to a major department store, with twenty-one individual gift cards totaling $1,500. Post time for the first of 13 dashes is slated for 7:15 p.m. Eastern. (Meadowlands)
