East Rutherford, NJ--The $50,000 TVG FFA trot, a Grand Circuit event, highlighted the Friday night (June 20) card at The Meadowlands on a delightful summer evening and Sebastian K scored another dominating win in 1:50.3, leaving an accomplished field in his wake.

His winning efforts of 1:50.1, 1:50.2 and 1:50.3 are the three fastest consecutive trotting miles in harness racing history.

Sebastian K won the TVG FFA Trot in 1:50.3.

Trainer-driver Ake Svanstedt sent his stable star away fast from post five and he had the front instantly, crossing over and taking up by the quarter in 27.3. Left alone on the lead, Svanstedt rated Sebastian K through a 56 flat half and 1:24.1 three panels before sprinting again with a 26.2 close to the mile without so much as a “Come on, boy” from Svanstedt.
 
Archangel drafted along in the pocket and held the place while Market Share tried to advance on the outside from the half to no avail and stayed on for third.
 
This was his third win in as many tries since landing on U.S. soil for Sebastian K, owned by Knutsson Trotting, Inc of Vero Beach, Fla.

The Saturday program features the finals of the Caramore, Cathedra Dot Com and Flower Child series. In addition, the camels and ostriches will do battle in the third annual Cameltonian and Ostrich Races. Post time for the live harness card is 7:15 P.M.  For more information, visit playmeadowlands.com.
