Elegant Lord Back on Turf for Saturday Feature

Posted Thursday, Oct 25, 2012



Saturday’s Meadowlands feature will showcase New Jersey-breds travelling one mile over the turf course, one of them set to bring a nice turf pedigree along for the ride. 

            “He ran really well in his only try on the grass,” said trainer Pat McBurney of his feature race entrant Elegant Lord.  “He has a nice turf number and we were excited to get him to try the turf.  I hope we’re as excited after Saturday’s race.” 

            In his lone turf race, Elegant Lord waited until the far turn to make his move and came with a quick acceleration through the lane, beaten just a half-length for it all in a runner-up effort.  That race was against open company.  He heads back to face fellow New Jersey-breds on Saturday several of which he has faced in the past. 

            A full field of 11 is set to assemble for the $37,500 fifth race on an eight -race program.  Elegant Lord and jockey Armando Ayuso will break from post position nine.
