Saturday's featured seventh race, a $20,000 Preferred Handicap Pace will be the stage for the return to racing of the popular veteran and double millionaire Bettor's Edge.

Away from racing since a solid third place finish in the $427,400 WR Haughton Memorial on Meadowlands Pace night last July, Bettor's Edge has had three qualifiers in preparation for Saturday's race, including a 1:54.4 winning effort in early December.

Now nine years of age, Bettor's Edge has faced the best of several generations of top class pacers and held his own against them. As a freshman and sophomore he battled one of the deepest groups in recent memory including such stalwarts as Sweet Lou, A Rocknroll Dance, Michael's Power and Heston Blue Chip.

Now racing out of the Jennifer Lappe barn where he is co-owned by the trainer with Robert Santagata, Bettor's Edge will start from the outer most post seven with Corey Callahan in the bike.

It's another fourteen race marathon featuring a wine dinner in Pink and horseplayers may still enter to qualify for the  World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com 

Post time is 6:35 p.m.
