Enough Talk turned the tables on Lucky Jim with a well-rated victory in round two of the Su Mac Lad Series on Friday night at Meadowlands Racetrack.

Enough Talk coasted through fractions of 28.3, 57.4 and 1:26 before sprinting home in :26.4, toward a final 1:52.4 clocking.  Lucky Jim sat a garden trip behind Enough Talk but could not leave the pylons until first up challenger Arch Madness faded late in the mile.  Lucky Jim made a final surge but fell a neck short at the wire, ending his Meadowlands winning streak at 16 races.  Arch Madness held on for third.

Enough Talk received the slight nod over Lucky Jim in the betting and paid $3.80 to win the $50,000 tenth race feature.  The 2008 Older Trotter of the Year boosted his career totals to 29 wins in 73 starts and $1.2 million in earnings.  Trainer Peter Kleinhans shares ownership of the 7-year-old Enjoy Lavec-Fashion Setter gelding with Jerry Silva.

Preliminary round winners Enough Talk and Lucky Jim will tangle again in the $125,000 Su Mac Lad Final next Friday, April 16.

The second round of the Art Unger Stake for conditioned pacers was also contested Friday night.  Allamerican Chief sprung off cover in the stretch and held off He's Redhot to win the first of the splits by a head in 1:53.  Tamayo closed along the pylons to finish third.  Allamerican Chief, driven by Yannick Gingras and trained by John Bavosi, is now two-for-two in the series.  Ruth Ann O'Brien, Robert Rinaldi and Francis Terricone own the 4-year-old son of Cam's Card Shark.

Who What left bettors scratching their heads in the second Art Unger division.  The 60-1 shot broke a two-year losing streak with a monstrous rally to victory in 1:52.1.  Driven by Ron Pierce, Who What paid $131.40.  Sun Moon Lake picked up the place spot, while Western Avenue was third.  A 4-year-old son of Riverboat King, Who What posted his second win in 26 career starts for trainer James Clarry and owner Nancy Grbelja.(Meadowlands)
