Matt’s Blog — Weekend Preview October 6

Posted October 06, 2017 | Racing News

Three days of racing this weekend at Northlands Park Racetrack and Casino. Both Friday and Saturday start at 6:30pm – while the holiday Monday card has a 1pm first post. All three days are nine race cards.

On Friday night it’s great to see TIMBERLINE COURT back in to go. He was involved in a scary spill last year at Northlands, but the veteran has rebounded and made it back to the track. He will have to try and catch STARFACE who has been on fire to start the meet. The feature Friday is the mares open and to the surprise of no one, TAJMEALLOVER will be tough to top again. She has won five in a row, and jogged last week coming home in 1:55.

Saturday features the boys open going for the first time at the meet. Trainer Kelly Hoerdt sends out the pair of IWONTDOTHATAGAIN and COOL COWBOY. Both look to have big shots in the field with the slight edge going to IWONTDOTHATAGAIN. METAJKA ROAD loves the track at Northlands and could pop up with a big effort for trainer and driver GERRY HUDON.

Looking ahead to Monday, LISSOY will be a handful with the $16k claiming mares. She is in to go on Friday against TAJMEALLOVER in the open, and should find a softer spot on Monday afternoon,

On both Friday and Saturday night you can Harness The Cash down in the casino. It’s your chance to win thousands in cash and prizes. Enter by swiping your card for a free entry and earn bonus entries by winning jackpots.
