IMPRESSIVE McWINNERS

That was MCARACAS (McArdle-Smooth Latin N) dominating last weeks Diplomatic series at Woodbine in :53.2 following a sensational last to first debut in which he won by 4 lengths in :52.3 after being 11 lengths off at the half mile pole.

 

McCardle’s big gun One More Laugh (McArdle-Fancy Creek Funny) made it two for two in his qualifiers at The Meadowlands tacking on identical :25.4 final quarters in each.

One More Laugh, a winner of 1:49.3 at two was the Pennsylvania freshman champion last year and should be a major factor in the 3-year-old stakes in 2010.

 

McArdle’s own McGIBSON (Armbro Althea) was a fast closing 3rd in the in the $237,000 Blue Chip Matchmaker final at Yonkers.

    

Bookings remain available to McArdle at Lindwood Farms in Pennsylvania

 

REVENUE RESURGENCE

It was the Revenue filly Quite Possible Meadowbranch Mary) the fastest of a trio of SCRANTON SERIES events for 3-year-old trotting fillies winning in 1:55.4 at Pocono.

 

And at Saratoga NUMISMATIC (Revenue-Shooting Starlet) scored in a Battle of Saratoga event.

 

Bob Key’s BREAK THE BANK K (Revenue-American Misty) one of the more impressive 2-year-olds from last year has come back like gangbusters for Trond Smedshammer and should be set to qualify before too long.

 

RECORD HANDLE

It was a record handle in New Jersey on Derby Day for the runners that is though nobody’s talking about how we did at the harness tracks.

 

Reportedly there was a more than a minor traffic jam exiting The Meadowlands in the vicinity of 6:40PM some scant minutes after the Derby was over.

 

Of course the harness post time at The Big M is 7PM so obviously this crowd was not there for us.

 

Of course TVG didn’t get around to showing our first race until 8:14 to be exact but that’s another matter.

 

Since the crowd is obviously there for the Derby festivities one wonders if perhaps the live harness card should start somewhere about 4PM and if the players already there can be induced into wagering on something live.

 

Or perhaps they might not all be cascading down the exit ramps  following the Derby finale as we’d still have some live races to available bet on.          

 

Just a thought!

 

SUPER BOWL

So it’s almost a foregone conclusion that the replacement for Giants Stadium now called Meadowlands stadium will be hosting the Super Bowl in 2014.

 

And why not, the new stadium is fantastic and Manhattan sits maybe 8 miles to the east down route 3

 

Someone said they could host this media event in the Javits center and that media event somewhere else in what’s called the greatest city in the world.

 

What this does for New Jersey where the stadium happens to reside is anybody’s guess.

 

Last year’s Super Bowl was staged in whatever they call that facility adjacent to Calder Race Course on the Dade-Broward border in Florida.

 

Of course all the festivities were held either in Fort Lauderdale or Miami where the appropriate facilities are located.

 

However, it was still Florida—not a different state!

 

But if a full fledged opulent Casino Hotel were on The Meadowlands premises then many of the preliminary features of Super Bowl week could be staged in New Jersey- where the stadium is.

 

And that might mean something to the State of New Jersey-right Guv?
