East Rutherford, NJ---Apparently five wasn’t enough.
That must have been what Yannick Gingras was thinking as he took to the track Saturday night (Jan. 19) at The Meadowlands.
Gingras won six races on the Saturday program, including the $30,000 Free For All Handicap with Bettor’s Edge, who went right to the lead, setting fractions of 26.3, 54.2 and 1:22.3 before winning by 2-3/4 lengths in 1:50.
Bettor’s Edge is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and the M1 Stable LLC. The win was one of three on the card for leading trainer Ron Burke.
The other story on the program was the success of horses headed to Monday’s (Jan. 20) Meadowlands January Mixed Sale presented by Tattersalls. In fact, by night’s end, five horses entered in the sale were victorious, including Alexie Mattosie, Allstar Legend, Emeritus Maximus, Tarpon Hanover and Wake Up Peter. The sale is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. in the back paddock at The Meadowlands.
Total handle was just under $3.2 million.
Racing returns on Wednesday, Jan. 22, with an 11-race program, including the final of The Super Bowl Trotting Series, with first post time at 7:15 p.m. This will be the last live racing program until after the Super Bowl, when live racing returns Thursday, Feb. 6.
The Meadowlands will remain open for simulcasting through Sunday Jan. 26. It will then be closed from Monday, Jan. 27, through Monday, Feb. 3, and will re-open for simulcasting on Tuesday, Feb. 4. Meadowlands customers can attend Winners Bayonne from Jan. 27 through Feb. 3, so they don’t miss a minute of the simulcast action.
