He Wants Another Carey Crown
Defending Robert F. Carey Memorial champ He Wants It All headlines a field of seven high class aged pacers entered to contest Saturday night’s $24,000 Carey Preview.
Trained by Tom Harmer, a Sunday inductee into the IHHA Hall of Fame, the 6-year-old son of The Big Dog took a week off following his game Free For All win over Westward Vision and Town Champion here on May 27. Piloted by Dave Magee, He Wants It All is in line to eclipse $700,000 in career earnings. He will leave from post position two and is programmed as number three.
Town Champion, whose life mark of 1:48 2/5 established a course record at Hawthorne last summer, will make just his third start of the season on Saturday. Following a third place finish behind He Wants It All two back, he went favored in last week’s Free For All. Shuffled to fifth past the opening quarter, he was parked for a quarter mile while making his move into a sizzling :53 3/5 half, and his simply had nothing left in the tank, crossing the wire eighth. He leaves from post six.
Wherethenmoneywentn is one of several Carey participants to have spent most of the spring on the East Coast. He invaded Chicago for last week’s Free For All, but was compromised by an outside post and a traffic-filled stretch in a seventh-place effort that only saw him defeated by three lengths to a fast closing Yukon Cornelius. With Dale Hiteman in the bike, the team will spring from post five.
Cheyenne Hollywood is an under-the-radar up and comer who could make his presence felt. Now trained locally by Julie Miller, this 4-year-old son of Western Hanover won two of his last three starts at the Meadowlands. He leaves from the rail with driver Mike Oosting at the controls.
Shu Hanover, American Fury and Rob Roy Mattgregor round out the Carey Preview.
Jovial Joker, who is entered to participate in next Saturday’s Carey, bypassed the prep and will instead participate in Saturday night’s fifth race, a “non-winners of $7,500 last five.”
Cornelius Bypasses Carey, Opts for Free For All
Following last week’s scintillating Free For All score, his third in four tries at the meet, driver/trainer Todd Warren indicated that Yukon Cornelius could potentially supplement to the Carey. Instead the connections have entered the 7-year-old gelded son of Cam Terrific to compete in Saturday’s $21,500 Free For All, where he should be the defined favorite amongst the seven. Last week, the versatile performer rated last of ten before uncorking a final quarter in a smashing :25 3/5 to prevail by a neck of the longshot Wesley Snip.
If he was at the top of his game, Quik Pulse Mindale could pace stride for stride with any of those entered in the Carey Preview, but instead the 5-year-old son of Jenna’s Beach Boy will take baby steps in his 2006 debut, competing in Saturday night’s 11th race, a “non-winner’s of $3,000 last five.”
The Erv Miller trainee, who has banked over $736,000 in his career, is eligible under the secondary “non-winners of $7,500 in 2006” condition. One of the top 3-year-olds in the country in 2005, “QPM” raced only twice as a 4-year-old. He won consecutive qualifiers in advance of Saturday night’s return start. Dave Magee is slated to drive the odds on favorite, who will leave from post four of nine.Get the Points?
