Thursday Swan Song at The Meadowlands

East Rutherford, NJ - The last of the Thursday night live Meadowlands cards comes around this week with racing from here forward condensed down to Friday & Saturday through the August 5 Hambletonian Day conclusion of the summer meet.

This week's feature is the eighth race, a conditioned trot. It's a well balanced field of nine with O U Sexy Guy listed as a tepid 3-1 morning line choice. The eight year old veteran is dropping into an easier spot for owner Patricia Ceraso after offering competitive yet not financially rewarding efforts against better in his last few Meadowlands starts. The potent native Buckeye combination of trainer Jack Franklin and driver Brett Miller handle the respective assignments on O U Sexy Guy.

Host Justin Horowitz will be at the desk for the last of the broadcasts on the SNY network as they carry races seven through nine live in the metropolitan area.

The nine race program begins at 7:15 p.m.
