Summer-like conditions greeted fans at The Meadowlands on Saturday evening, with temperatures in the low 80's bringing out a large crowd for the annual Beerfest and Battle of the Burgers.

Odds on Equuleus (Vinny Ginsburg) made it back-to-back Big M scores with a win in the feature, a $17,500 conditioned event, unleashing a wicked 26 second final kicker to rally up in time for a three-quarter length win in 1:48.4.

Mr D's Dragon (Christian Lind) blasted off the wings to take the early lead, with Iwillmakeyousaywow (Daniel Dube) taking a two-hole tuck past the opening quarter in 26.4. Shortly after the field settled up the backstretch, Driver Jordan Stratton was on the attack first over with the New Zealand bred Iammrbrightside N, who was imported to the U.S. in early spring.

Ontario Success (Dan Charlino) followed that live cover up second over, with the 9-5 slight favorite Odds on Equuleus setting things up third over in the flow. Mr. D's Dragon continued to stand tall after putting up crisp fractions, by the half in 54.1 and three-quarters in 1:22, but it was ultimately Odds on Equuleus who tipped 4-wide down the lane and made up the four-length difference from sixth to outsprint his rivals and hit the line first in 1:48.4. It was the 20th victory of his career, and a seasons best effort.

Mr D's Dragon held on for the second spot, with Iwillmakeyousaywow staying on late to be third.

Total handle on the 11-race card was $2,349,700,
