In the first installment, we discussed the Molson Invitational, the Lismore and Art Rooney. In this installment, we will discuss the two divisions of the Somebeachsomewhere at Mohawk, the Golden Girls divisions and the TVG FFA at the Meadowlands. While we will not discuss them, the finals for the 3yo NJSS races will be contested tonight as well.
