Driver Brian Sears racked up his fourth win on the Meadowlands’ Friday night card with Liberated Artist in the $22,500 second leg of the Robert J. Suslow Series. Liberated Artist stormed home to a 1 1/2-length victory over the pylon-skimming Kansas Wildcat in 1:53.2. Yankee Stardom kicked off cover in the stretch and closed for third.

In addition to the eighth race, Sears also picked up wins with BJ’s Chinook in the first, Close Encounter in the third and Ulrica Bromac in the seventh.

Liberated Artist notched his third win in 10 career starts for trainer Ray Remmen and owners Seth Rosenfeld and John Lichtenberger. The $70,000 Robert J. Suslow final is next Friday.

Earlier in the evening, Double Dream pulled away to a 5 1/2-length win over The Queen Of Trash in the $42,000 mares open. The favorite, KG Delight, finished a distanced third.

Double Dream lowered her mark to 1:51.3 with Ron Pierce in the sulky. She has won seven of 12 starts in 2007 for trainer Ross Croghan and Redmak Enterprises of Briarcliff Manor.

San Remo Kosmos pulled off the upset in the $42,000 Open Trot for driver Andy Miller and trainer Mark Silva. The 17-1 shot nipped pacesetter Ripped at the wire in 1:55. Nahcotta Jude held on for third, while Brunton Tilly finished fourth after encountering traffic trouble. (Meadowlands)
