  The Gym Partners 

Dan Patch Award winning filly unleashed a 1:50.3 career best from post ten in the
  Del Miller, uncorked a :25.4 rally for the ages in to win her elimination in
  1:51.2, “She’s been great,” Alagna said. “She was a very immature 2-year-old
  and she was still able to get the job done.  We were so happy with how
  she came back (in the winter) in Florida. Her first start, she raced super
  off the pace and two weeks ago she was sparkling and tonight she’s even
  better.”

Ready For Moni

(Ready Cash)

Yannick
  Gingras, Nancy Takter, John Fielding, Lindy Farms of Conn, Herb Liverman, Bud
  Hatfield

Rallied to win his Team Takter debut in a Dancer division in 1:51.4, cruised to a new mark
  of 1:51.3 in his elimination, “The way the schedule has been this year, it’s
  been a little difficult to find races,” Takter said.  “We didn’t want to
  have him over-raced going into the Hambletonian, so he had a couple nice
  qualifiers to kind of let him get into his own and hopefully he’ll take this
  race in the right way and be even sharper for next week.”
