East Rutherford, NJ --- Entering the Super Bowl Series final, Time To Quit was labeled the horse to beat. On Wednesday night (Jan. 22), he lived up to that advance billing, scoring a decisive 1:55.1 triumph on a bitterly cold night at the Meadowlands.
|Time To Quit was a 1:55.1 winner for driver Yannick Gingras.|
One week removed from a hard fought and game win in the second round of the series, Yannick Gingras confidently guided his trotter to the lead past the quarter. Over the next half-mile several contenders went off-stride including Home Turf and Cajole Hanover, leaving the race all to Time To Quit, who never faced a challenge and coasted to the victory for owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura and trainer Ron Burke.
Time To Quit will reappear in the Charles Singer Memorial Trotting Series which gets underway Thursday (Feb. 13).
Wednesday marked the last night of live racing at the Meadowlands until after the Super Bowl. Live racing will resume on Thursday (Feb. 6). That card will include a carryover in the Pick-5, as no one cashed a Pick-5 ticket Wednesday at the Meadowlands thanks to a win by Delco Willobee who scored in race two for Jim Marohn, Jr. at odds of 96-1. The Pick-5 carryover into the Feb. 6 program will be $18,083.
Simulcasting continues at the Meadowlands through this Sunday (Jan. 26). The Meadowlands will be dark for simulcasting from Monday (Jan. 27) through Monday (Feb. 3) for Super Bowl festivities. Customers are encouraged to go to Winners Bayonne for all the simulcasting action during this period, until simulcasting resumes at the Meadowlands on Tuesday (Feb. 4).
