It has been a long time between victories for 2015 Hambletonian champion Pinkman, but his extended wait to return to the winner’s circle is finally over.
The Jimmy Takter trainee, who last won on May 29, 2016, in a stakes event in Sweden, took the featured conditioned trot Friday night (June 22) at the Meadowlands in 1:52 by a half-length over Misslarose. Opulent Yankee finished third.
Prior to his score in Sweden, Pinkman’s previous North American victory came in the Oct. 10, 2015 Kentucky Futurity, two months after he hoisted Hambletonian hardware.
Friday night, driver Andy McCarthy was in the sulky as Pinkman, who never saw the rail, was in a live second-over flow heading for three-quarters. He tipped off his cover in midstretch and rolled to his 19th career win in 42 starts for owners Christina Takter, John and Jim Fielding, Joyce McClelland and Herb Liverman. Lifetime, the 6-year-old gelded son of Explosive Matter has earned $2.65 million.
As the 3-1 second choice in the wagering, Pinkman returned $8.00 to win.
Lindy The Great, the 3-2 public's choice, broke stride before the quarter.
Hambo Hopefuls: The Paula Wellwood-trained Southwind Chrome crushed an overmatched field in a non-winners of two earlier on the card. The Hambletonian eligible, a son of Chapter Seven, was driven by Scott Zeron and completed the mile in 1:54 as the 1-5 favorite for his first-ever win in his fifth start.
Zephyr Kronos, trained and driven by Takter, won a non-winners of three later in the evening. The son of Ready Cash, another Hambo eligible, scored on the front end in 1:53 as the 5-1 third choice in the wagering.
A Little More: The Late 20-cent Jackpot Super High-Five failed to result in a single-ticket winner, upping the carryover to $262,148. One lucky player walked away with $11,470 after being the only bettor to survive eight legs in the 20-cent Survivor Pick-9. All-source wagering on the nine-race card totaled $1,767,338. Racing resumes at the Big M Saturday at 7:15 p.m.
