Let It Ride Stable, Inc. and Mr. Dana Parham's Prairie
Sweetheart brings her perfect career record to The Meadowlands, facing five
rivals in an $18,000 conditioned pace.
The lightly raced Florida bred four-year-old mare caught the eye
of her current connections with impressive back to back scores at Pocono
and Yonkers last summer and was placed in the barn of Ross Croghan at The Red
Mile after a private purchase.
With no Grand Circuit stakes on her calendar, the new owners chose
an unconventional route for Prairie Sweetheart by choosing to supplement her to
the Allerage Farms Free For All mare pace where she would face division leader
Lady Shadow among a very accomplished field of veteran pacing mares. She
rewarded their faith with a surprisingly easy 1:49.1 win against that company.
After romping through what remained of her Florida stakes Prairie
Sweetheart was put away for the winter and has had a pair of Pompano qualifiers
to prepare for Friday's race. She'll begin from post five for driver John
Campbell, attempting to advance her lifetime record to a perfect 15 for 15.
The Friday offering is a ten race program that begins at 7:15
