Ya, Saratoga is going, Del Mar is going, but how about the action in harness?
Back to back track records are set at the Meadows in the Adios elims. The Final goes next Saturday.
At the 3/8's pole in the $700k Maple Leaf Trot any handicapper worth his salt was saying "move on Arch Randy". Driver Randy Waples was thinking the same thing. He stole a nice little rest with San Pail in the third quarter, and the not-very-sharp Arch Madness had no response. Good win, for a nice horse.
Mel Mara, who we talked about Friday, is the real deal. After getting messed up around cover, he won exactly as programmed. If there was ever a 1-5 shot who was an overlay, this might have been the race.
Big Jim won nicely this evening in an NJSS.
Krispy Apples might not be quite as good as she has been. She tried to win in a fast time in tonight's first race, but she ain't no See You At Peelers.
Dreamfair Eternal won the Roses Are Red, in large part thanks to the poor effort by the chalk. She was not keen at all, and could barely clear in a 28 and change second panel.
Buck I St. Pat threw in a major clunker in the Armbro Flight as well. She does not do that very often.
