Trio of MADC races featured Saturday at the Meadowlands

East Rutherford, NJ — The Meadowlands Amateur Drivers Club went back to their norm on Saturday night (June 15) as favorites were defeated in all three of the club’s races on the card at the Meadowlands.

In the first race on the card, Brazen Brazilian (Michael Kimelman) endured a tough grind to the front and cleared after a fast :54.4 half. This seemed like it would take its toll and set up for the closers, but Brazen Brazilian was able to hold off all the competition to win by two lengths in 1:53.1. Lachie Maguire N (Newton “Yogi” Sheridan) finished second while Rockabilly Charm (Joe Lee) got up for third.

Kimelman trains the victorious 7-year-old gelding and co-owns him with Sara and Olivia Kimelman.

In the fifth race, Landia (Tony Beltrami) made a first-over move and wore down the leaders to win by a half length over favorite Beacon Beach (Sheridan) in 1:55.3. Bacardi (Lee), who led for a majority of this race, faded to third.

Donald Maiorano owns and trains the victorious 5-year-old mare.

In the third and final MADC race, carded as race seven, Tony Verruso and Dragon Said made a mid-race first-over move, and the pair prevailed by a nose over Warrawee Yankee (Mark Silva) and longtime leader Bionic (Michael Shults) in 1:53.

Verruso co-owns the victorious 7-year-old gelding with Robert Devine; Symon Spicer trains.

The MADC will be back on Friday night (June 21) at the Big M with first post scheduled for 6:20 p.m.
