Meadowlands Series Remember Whata Baron and Burning Point

Saturday, April 7, 2018

  It's a rock solid twelve race card on display tonight at The Meadowlands, featuring the first $15,000 legs of the Whata Baron series for pacing horses and the Burning Point for their distaff counterparts. 


The Burning Point, for mares that have not won 6 races life or $125,000 in 2017, comes as a pair of tens in races seven and ten. Both field drew up pretty evenly with leading trainer Ron Burke sending out the morning line favorite in both. 


Windsun Glory collected $111,844 last season and took a 1:50 record at Hoosier Park. She's had a single start back in 2018 and just missed, beaten a neck in 1:51.4. She'll begin from post with Andy McCarthy driving for Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, J&T Silva and Larry Karr. 


Bettorhaveanother has been working hard for the money at Dover Downs over the winter and has more than $55,000 to show for those efforts, winning half of her eight starts and taking a 1:50.3 record in the process. Brett Miller's got the call on her from the seven hole tonight for Burke Racing and Weaver Bruscemi. 


The Whata Baron (Race 8) requires the same qualifying conditions from the male set and Barimah A (PP #8 Andy Miller) is the 3-1 choice in the program. The 8-year-old import just slid in under the number with $123,455 earned last year for Brian Carsey, John McGill and Adam Friedland and has won his last two Meadowlands efforts in 1:50.4 Scott Di Domenico trains Barimah A. 


They'll race two legs to get to the finals on April 21, both of which are worth in excess of $50,000. 


The wagers remain the same and the pools have been deep lately in the horizontals. The Jackpot Super Hi-5 carry-over continues to climb and has reached $177,515 into tonight's card. 


Post time is 7:15 p.m.
