Annabelle Final
Staffan Linds Celebrity Madonna vann..
Brian Sears hittade till ledningen efter 300 meter med
Celebrity Madonna (e. Yankee Glide-Pine Hill Vogue), men släppte täten efter 600 meter till Paula's Brady.

Länge såg stoet ut att bli instängd i vinnarhålet, men 100 kvar hittade Brian Sears luckan mellan hästar och det räckte för att Yankee Glide-dottern skulle hinna fram till vinst. Segertiden skrevs till 1.12,0/1.609 meter och förstapriset uppgick till 5.500 dollar.
Jonas Czernysons Rap's Legacy (e. Windsong's Legacy), delägd av Per Eriksson, vann för George Brennan på Meadowlands i natt. Rap's Legacy tog ledningen i första sväng, men släppte täten på bortre långsidan.
George Brennan avvaktade i vinnarhålet till upploppets början och mitt på målrakan tog Rap's Legacy över kommandot och gick säkert undan på 1.11,9.
Det var andra triumfen i år för Rap's Legacy och vinsten var värderad till 5.500 dollar. Se resultat

  Stage Set For Merrie Annabelle Final            

A pair of $20,000 eliminations for the Merrie Annabelle for two-year-old trotting fillies were contested Thursday night at Meadowlands Racetrack, with Thatsnotmyname and Hey Mister winning their respective assignments.

John Campbell guided Thatsnotmyname first over to win the opening elimination in a career best 1:55.1. The bay daughter of Windsongs Legacy-Graceful Touch was 3-1/2 lengths ahead of runner-up Fitness Girl, while Redwhitenbluestone wound up third. Angelette Hanover and Alzata Hanover, who rounded out the top five, also advanced to next week’s final

Thatsnotmyname was a $250,000 yearling purchase from the Standardbred Horse Sale in Harrisburg, PA. She now has two wins in three starts for trainer Jimmy Takter. Thatsnotmyname is owned by Order By Stable of Boras, Sweden. She paid $3.00 to win.

“She raced up first over but she’s very strong, said Campbell. “Every start she’s been good and she seems to be improving. I think [we can expect more from her], she has room to improve because she hasn’t been extended much in her last few races and she wasn’t tired at all. We certainly have a big advantage picking our post position for next week.”

Hey Mister made her racing debut a successful one thanks to her win in the second elimination for driver Hey Mister - StallTZJohn Campbell and trainer Jeff Webster. The homebred daughter of Muscles Yankee-Pick Me Up trotted to an easy victory in 1:56.2. Grace Marie was two lengths back in second and Tango Dancer was third. Crème De Cocoa and Refuse To Lose also advanced to next week’s final.

Hey Mister is owned by Let It Ride Stables and Mentally Stable, both of Delray Beach, FL and Jerry Silva of Long Beach, NY. She paid $27.80 to win.

“She did it on her own and came first over,” said Campbell. “The fractions were very good for first over because I didn’t have to use her the third quarter. When I asked her to trot home she stepped home very nice. She’s a little green and actually wasn’t extended that much.”

The $525,000 (est.) Merrie Annabelle final will be contested on August 7, part of the Hambletonian Day race card. The winners from the two eliminations will be given the opportunity to pick their post position for the race.
