Yannick Gingras is in the zone. He found his way to the winner's circled seven times on the 13-race Saturday program, which generated a handle of $3.5 million. Four of Gingras's wins found him teamed up with trainer Ron Burke.
Over the last six nights of racing, Gingras has won 18 races. This streak is similar to one last year when he opened up a massive lead in the Meadowlands' driver standings. It appears he is on his way to doing that again.
The Exit 16W series continued and produced one enormous upset and another thrilling finish. In the first division, Hang Ten lit up the toteboard at 32-1 for John Campbell, paving the way for a carryover of the early Pick 4. That carryover led to a total pool of the late Pick 4 of over $167,000.
The second division saw a wild finish with four noses on the wire. In the end it was favored Holdingallthecards who once again scored a narrow victory, running his record to 6 for 6 on the year.
It was yet another great night for the Meadowlands handle. The total handle of $3,565,691 was the third time the total handle has gone past the $3.5 million mark this year. In 2012, the only race card that accomplished that feat was Hambletonian Day.
Racing returns on Thursday night with first post time of 7:15 P.M. For more information, log on to meadowlandsracetrack.com. (Meadowlands)
