Preview of the TVG/Meadowlands FFA Trotting Series

Tonight is another leg of the TVG/Meadowlands FFA Trotting Series, another opportunity to earn a spot to the year end $500,000 final.  This week Market Share and Arch Madness join the fray.  The race would be easy to handicap if everyone has been racing regularly but many of the logical choices have a question mark  It's not that I expect bombs away here, but looking for value in this race is absolutely essential

10th Meadowlands Trot - $50,000; TVG/Meadowlands FFA (Horses are Listed in Post Position Order)
   1  Uncle Peter (D. Miller, 2-1) - Prepped well at Pocono; been sharp and figures to be in the thick of it
   2  Wishing Stone (Gingras, 8-5) - Won Maxie Lee and is a logical pick.  Does three week layout take the edge off?
   3  Sevruga (A, Miller, 7-2) - Overachieved in Cutler.  A step below the best here.
   4  Undercover Strike (Campbell 8-1) - Seems to be not up to these but can land share with best effort.
1A  Guccio (Takter, 2-1) - Won at Pocono and been sharp, but wins have been few.
  5  Big Sky Storm (Callahan, 25-1) - Would be a major upset if he gets on the ticket
  6  Knows Nothing (Allard, 15-1) - Picking up a check would be an accomplishment.  Pass.
2A  Market Share (Tetrick, 8-5) - Four year old making second start  Does he manage against the best aged?
  7  Another Amaretto (Lachance, 25-1) - Wondering what he is doing in here?
  8  Arch Madness (Smedshamer, 6-1) - Returns from racing Europe's best.  Only concern is trainer not sure if he's ready for a big effort.  Question mark,  At decent odds may be worth a look
Selections: 1-2-8-2A-3  Longshot Play #8
