Friday's action at the Meadowlands includes the seasonal return of Double L Lindy, who finished third in the 2016 Breeders Crown and second in the 2016 Matron Stakes. The 5-year-old gelding starts from post No. 10 in Friday's eighth race, a conditioned trot that will air as part of the "Meadowlands Harness Live" broadcast from 9-10 p.m. on SNY (SportsNet New York).
Double L Lindy was unraced at age 2 because of knee troubles, but has won eight of 28 career races and earned $258,664 in purses. He is owned by Little E LLC, Living The Dream Racing, and R.B.H. Ventures.
"He is training back good," trainer Ake Svanstedt said. "He qualified good and feels good. He's got a bad post (Friday) so that will be tough. We'll just hope for a good trip."
Double L Lindy is prepping for the Shiaway St. Pat Series at the Meadowlands, which begins April 6.
"At the end of his 3-year-old year he raced good," Svanstedt said. "He had some issues last year, but he is better again. He feels good now, bigger and stronger." (Ken Weingartner/USTA)
