Three New Jersey Sires Stakes (NJSS) divisions at the Meadowlands on May 28 featured 20 Hambletonian-eligible colts, including the sophomore debuts of Temple Of Doom and Break The Bank K.

Temple Of Doom is the second trot-classic possibility for the Robert Rosenheim stable. His other colt, Can’t Lose, won a Pennsylvania-sires-stakes mile at Chester on May 27. "Doom," a Jonas Czernyson-trained son of Yankee Glide, was the public’s second choice at 5-2. He came from behind to beat the 3-2 favored Take My Picture.

The second NJSS mile featured eight colts, all Hambo-eligibles, with Break The Bank K the 3-5 choice with trainer Trond Smedshammer in the bike. "Bank" settled mid-pack and made a move at the leader, second-choice Flex The Muscle, going into the final turn. Trond kept at his charge to win by around a length in 1:56.3, a product of slow early fractions. Senor Glide was third, struggling a bit more than expected in the final quarter.

Trond picks up the training duties from Richie Gillock, who conditioned Bank at two, when he won over $236,000 for owner Robert Key. Since American Winner in 1993, Mr. Key has not had major glory in the August classic.

In the first split, I've Got It All made chalk players happy with a win at 3-5. Trainer-owner Peter Kleinhans’ colt was the third of the NJSS trio of races to be won from behind. Also Hambo-eligible Rap’s Legacy finished third.
