Babies On Parade

This Thursday evening, racing returns to the Meadowlands, kicking off three days-a-week racing.  This Thursday, debuts the John Simpson Memorial Stakes at the Meadowlands for the first time and the first four races of hte night card showcase the two year old trotters with one division of the Simpson for 2yo trotting colts and geldings and three divisions for trotting fillies.

Betting two year olds at this time of year when they are making their first pari-mutuel starts makes it somewhat  challenging to handicap races.  You have some world beaters on paper who have looked super sharp in the morning, but will those races show up in the evening under the lguhts?  What I am going to do is give you my selections for the first four races plus the horse to look out for (i.e., the longshot play).

SF Jenny is a nice filly in race 3 despite the purchase price of $4,500.00;-)

She'll prob be 30-1 but we like her.
