Friday Advance

Eastender gets top billing in main event

.

 

Eastender, third behind the hard-knocking pair of I’m An Athlete and Pancetta at most recent asking, lands a cozy spot in Friday night’s conditioned pacing feature at Cal Expo.

A 12-race card is on tap under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post is 6:10 p.m.and there will also be three Caifornia Sire Stakes going as non-betting events priror to he regular program.

An 8-year-old son of Cheyenne Rei, Eastender is owned by Maryann Plano and Nikki Hudson with Luke Plano reigning and training. He will be looking for his second win on the year from seven trips to the post.

The bay gelding recorded that victory as the odds-on choice in a January 19 contest and is coming off a second and a third in his last two tries. While no match for the top pair in that last tour after making a first-over bid, he should be very much at home in Friday’s line-up.

Taking him on are One And Only, Justabitcrazy, Last Dragon, Laissez Moi Passer, Contemporary Legend, China King, Prodigal and Wet Shark.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s outstanding card, there will be a pair of Open events, the Shelly Goudreau Final and the Joe Lighthill Trot.

Both Opens look like very contentious events, while Urgointohearmeroar looms an overwhelming favorite in the Goudreau Final and the Lighthill should prove to be a very interesting contest with the trotters going an extended mile and one-half journey.
