When she is good, she is very good.  When she is bad, she has broken stride. Gettingreadytoroll was at her best, putting away a challenge from Act Now in the $100,000 Thomas D’Altrui Miss New Jersey, the third race on Saturday, August 2 at the Meadowlands.

Yannick Gingras pressed Gettingreadytoroll, the 3-5 favorite who paid $3.20 to win, to the lead on the backstretch through quarters of 26, 52.4 and 1:21.4, crossing the wire in 1:50.1 and finishing a half-length ahead of Act Now. It was three and a quarter lengths to Kate Can’t Wait in third.

The Miss New Jersey, restricted to New Jersey-sired three-year-old pacing fillies, is sponsored by the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey.

"We were going pretty good,” said Gingras. "When Brian (Sears with Act Now) made the move, I thought the only way his mare would beat me is if she cut the mile.  I knew I was going to get a pretty big half, but I took my chance anyway.”

Gettingreadytoroll, A Rocknroll Hanover filly trained by Jimmy Takter, is owned by Christina Takter of East Windsor, N.J. and brothers John and Jim Fielding of Toronto, Ontario.  She was a $30,000 Harrisburg Sale yearling purchase. It was her fourth win in eight starts this year, five wins in 10 lifetime, and lifted her bankroll to $105,957. (Carol Hodes for SBOANJ)
