Takes over the top spot after blasting down the road in a qualifier that included his arch-rival Stay Hungry, pacing his final quarter in :26.3. Takter: “He was very good. Scott (Zeron) had no complaints. We are heading to the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes next.”

Doug McNair, one of the top-notch drivers from Toronto, was once again in to handle the colt, who finished fourth to Lost In Time, finishing his mile in 1:51.2. Alagna: “I was very pleased with his qualifier. He was locked in with pace to the wire. His first start will be in leg two of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes at Pocono.”
Last Race: 5/5 – M1 – Qualifier – 4th (1:51.2)

C. Ryder, R. Mondillo 

Bursts onto the scene with a marvelous two-move score in an $84,644  division of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes at The Meadows last Saturday. His win came as the 1-5 favorite against several other Meadowlands Pace contenders.
Last Race: 5/5 – Mea – PaSS – 1st (1:53)

Upset winner in one of the other Pennsylvania Sire Stakes divisions at The Meadows after being dismissed at odds of 11-1. Copped a fifth-place check in last year’s Governor’s Cup and finished third in his Breeders Crown elimination, indicating he is competitive with this crowd.

Pedro Hanover
($317,188 – 1:51)
 
D. Miller, A. Harris
B. Gray, D. Guerriero

 

The Pennsylvania Sire Stakes champion from a year ago did not bring his best last Saturday, finishing sixth in his seasonal debut at The Meadows. He may not have been sharp due to some blood issues leading up to the race.

Last Race: 5/5 – Mea – PaSS – 6th (1:52)

From post 8, went parked for the first two calls before clearing to the top, only to get nailed by This Is The Plan in a sharp performance in what was an extremely good beginning to his 3-year-old campaign.
Last Race: 5/5 – Mea – PaSS – 2nd (1:53.1)

Finished third as the 2-1 public choice after following the cover of eventual winner Dorsoduro Hanover in an effort that may look unspectacular on paper, but that just his fifth lifetime start, so there’s learning still to be done.
Last Race: 5/5 – Mea – PaSS – 3rd (1:51)

Nutcracker Sweet

($168,909 – 1:50.2) 

T. Tetrick, J. Takter
H. Taylor, Order By Stable, R. Lombardo

 

1:52 qualifying win at the Meadowlands came in wire-to-wire fashion in his first charted line of the year. A season ago, he won the Bluegrass and International Stallion Stakes at the Red Mile in back-to-back weeks in 1:50.3 and 1:50.2, respectively.

Last Race: 5/5 – M1 – Qualifier – 1st (1:52)

A. Miller, J. Miller

Finished fifth in the Lost In Time qualifier, pacing his final quarter in a brisk :26.2. Julie Miller: “the target for his first race of the year is the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes on May 19 at Pocono.”
Last Race: 5/5 – M1 – Qualifier – 5th (1:51.4)

Alagna barn is stacked as his 4 RTTMP horses prove. Qualified third behind Nutcracker Sweet, coming home in :27.2. Another lightly-raced (five lifetime starts) colt who could make history down the road.
Last Race: 5/5 – M1 – Qualifier – 3rd (1:52.2)
