MONTI HAT TRICK HELPS TRIGGER GIANT PICK FOUR PAYOFF AT THE MEADOWLANDS

Friday, January 6, 2017

 The Meadowlands late pick four wager returned a whopping $30,318.05 to three lucky horseplayers on Friday night thanks to a series of long shot winners. The total pool was $107,018.

22-year-old Big M newcomer Drew Monti was responsible for three of the four winners in the sequence including $110 upsetter Abbijade Hanover for leading trainer Ron Burke in the opening leg. That was followed by $23 winner Windsong Illusion, driven by leading driver Brett Miller. Monti won the next two races with $27 winner Fanticipation and closed out the sequence with $11 winner Joyful Game.

Monti is racing at the Meadowlands for just the third week after earning leading driver honors at the recently concluded Batavia Downs meet. It is his first Meadowlands driving triple. He entered tonight with just one career win at the Big M.
