Kokinos Looks to Continue GSY Mastery

East Rutherford, NJ - Friday night's Meadowlands card should delight fans and horseplayers alike with full and competitive fields in many of the night's dozen races and a $47,000 carryover in the last race Jackpot Super Hi-5.

The GSY Amateur weekly leg kicks off the card where this scrappy troupe of enthusiasts have recently been unable to stop and now only hopes to contain Dr. John Kokinos and his high percentage trotting mare Ellen's Streak. That pair has won the last two of these affairs and been assigned the outside post ten on Friday as a result of their recent dominance. Ellen's Streak overcame that starting point last week converting a wide but patient steer from Kokinos for her 13th seasonal score. Jennifer Lappe owns and trains the six-year-old CR Excalibur mare who has won 30% and been on the board in 65% of her 128 career starts.

The $17,500 feature condition trot is the penultimate event on the Friday menu. It offers an evenly matched field of seven accomplished square-gaiters led by return winners Waiting On A Woman and Rock Of Cashel who take on solid shippers Watkins and B Yoyo.

The dining options are many and wagering options a plenty with several guarantees and the customary complimentary program pages for the Late Pick 4.

Post time is 7:15 p.m.
