East Rutherford, NJ --- He’s Watching, the undefeated 2-year-old pacing colt and Dan Patch Award winner, remains No. 1 in this week’s edition of The Road to the Meadowlands Pace.
He’s Watching qualified in 1:53.2 at Mohawk last week while appearing well within himself. He is scheduled to have another qualifier before mapping out his 3-year-old campaign.
JK Endofanera looks like the biggest danger to He’s Watching thus far, winning the Simpson Memorial in his 2014 debut at The Meadowlands in 1:49.4. JK Endofanera is an imposing physical specimen who seems to tower over his competition in sheer size.
The horses making up the top 10 remain the same, but Always B Miki jumped up three spots to No. 7 thanks to back-to-back wins to start his season. He is in to go Thursday (May 8) at Harrah’s Philadelphia in a non-winners of five event.
Allstar Partner fell three spots to No. 10 following back-to-back losses to Always B Miki and JK Endofanera to start his season.

Those that are knocking on the door of the top ten are Let’s Drink On It (No. 11), who qualified extremely well at Hoosier and is in to go Saturday at Hoosier in a non-winners of five event; That’s My Opinion (No. 12), who is sent out by top connections of last year’s Meadowlands Pace winner Captaintreacherous and looked super-impressive winning a non-winners of two event at The Meadowlands in 1:50.3; and Limelight Beach (No. 13), who finished second in a fast mile (1:51.1) at The Meadows in his first start of the season.
Rounding out the top 20 are Jet Airway (No. 14), Twin B Speedo (No. 15), Doo Wop Hanover (No. 16), Ideal Cowboy (No. 17), Tellitlikeitis (No. 18), Dancin Hill (No. 19) and Some Major Beach (No. 20).
