Eliminations set for Hambletonian and Oaks

On Tuesday, July 26, two eliminations were drawn for the $140,000 Hambletonian two for the $70,000 Hambletonian Oaks at the Meadowlands Racetrack for the July 30 program.  

Out of our 29 predictions for the Hambletonian eliminations, we missed one horse, Bambino Hall (Tom Ridge). The horses from our list that did not make it were Evil Urges (Cash Hall), Leader Of The Gang (Muscles Yankee), Winuendo (Windsong’s Legacy), Whitewater Rapids (Credit Winner), Mr Web Page (Muscles Yankee), Ice Machine (Muscles Yankee), Del Cielo (Broadway Hall), Broadway Legs (Broadway Hall), Vc Chocoholic (Chocolatier), Buffalino Hanover (Cantab Hall) and Swan In A Million (Andover Hall).

Here are the fields for the Hambletonian eliminations (Drivers are subject to change).  

Elimination One Race Five

2 Big Sky Storm-Classic Photo-Ron Pierce-Chris Marino

3 Orlando-Andover Hall-Catello Manzi-Don Swick

4 Luckycharm Hanover-Andover Hall-David Miller-Thomas Haughton

5 Celebrity Bombay-Yankee Glide-Brian Sears-Staffan Lind

6 Chapter Seven-Windsong’s Legacy-Mike Lachance-Linda Toscano

7 Fawkes-SJ’s Caviar-Yannick Gingras-Jonas Czernyson

8 Broad Bahn-Broadway Hall-George Brennan-Noel Daley

9 Blue Porsche-Glidemaster-Trevor Ritchie-Blair Burgess

(Note Chapter Seven and Blue Porsche are a Jerry Silva owned entry)

Elimination Two Race Six


1 Whiskey Tax-Revenue S-Tim Tetrick-Thomas Durand

2 Magnum Kosmos-SJ’s Caviar-David Palone-Tony Dinges

3 Pastor Stephen-Cantab Hall-Ron Pierce-Jimmy Takter

4 Big Rigs-Andover Hall-Tim Tetrick-Kelly O’Donnell

5 Bambino Hall-Tom Ridge-David Palone-Kelly O’Donnell

6 Opening Night-Broadway Hall-Brian Sears-Jim Campbell

7 Manofmanymissions-Yankee Glide-Andy Miller-Ervin Miller

8 Charlie De Vie-Yankee Glide-Tim Tetrick-Chris Ryder

9 Live Jazz-Andover Hall-Tim Tetrick-Charles Sylvester

In the first elimination, Blue Porsche, along with stable mate Chapter Seven, will be the heavily bet favorites. The one that will be ignored is Fawkes. He broke in a three-year-old Open and can trot well from the outside. He will be in it if he stays flat.  

In the second elimination, Manofmanymissions will be the favorite for his victory in the Stanley Dancer. If he stays flat, he will be the one to beat, along with Charlie De Vie. He went on a speed break in the “Dancer” and was disqualified for failing to lose ground while on a break. The only way this horse will break is if he goes too fast when it is unnecessary (a common problem with speed in trotters these days). Also watch Opening Night. He trots his heart out in every start. Who knows what will happen if he gets a perfect trip?

8 Crème De Cocoa-Chocolatier-D.R. Ackerman-D.R. Ackerman

9 Lady Rainbow-Muscles Yankee-Richard Zeron-Richard Zeron

(Note Jezzy and Iron Lady are a Jerry Silva owned entry)

In the first elimination, Hey Mister, along with stable mate Crys Dream, will be the heavy favorite. After her victory in the New Jersey Sires Stakes, Winncinatti will be the one to watch. She closed hard to beat Crème De Cocoa. She did not do as well in the Del Miller, losing to likely favorite Hey Mister. Also watch Lost Symbol. She was second against the boys in the Magician stakes. Before that, was caught by a wide Hey Mister and a 104-1 Crème De Cocoa.

In the second elimination, Jezzy will be the likely favorite and horse to beat. But the horse to watch is Crème De Cocoa. After her second-place effort at 104-1, she has done really well. Ackerman is back on “Cocoa” and may do better. Also watch Lady Rainbow. This is the second start she is not against Crys Dream. The first time, she almost beat Jezzy, proving she could be better.
