East Rutherford, NJ - Trotters take center stage on Friday night at The Meadowlands with the talented B Yoyo heading up the featured sixth race, a conditioned trot for a purse of $18,000.
B Yoyo is maturing into a top class trotter for trainer Richie Johnson and since the calendar turned to 2017 has three on the board finishes in four starts. At his best, B Yoyo packs a powerful closing kick when raced off cover as evidenced in last week's winning effort. Driver Joe Bongiorno afforded the gelded son of Striking Sahbra a perfectly patient steer and B Yoyo responded, storming by rivals with a 28.1 end to the 1:53.3 mile.
It's a slight move up in class this week and B Yoyo must deal with the always dangerous duo of Muscle Diamond and Crosby's Clam Bake to bring the top prize home to owners Bill Lambos and Dionisios Liberatos.
All of the pieces are in place for an enjoyable evening of dining and dabbling in a lil' horseplay of the pari-mutuel variety.
Post time is 7:15 p.m.
