See You At Peelers Going To The Meadowlands!!

See You At Peelers will make her only stop at the Meadowlands this season on Saturday, July 16.

Harness racing's undefeated princess of pacing bids for her 20th straight win in the $127,000 Tarport Hap. She will start from post seven in the evening's fifth race with Brian Sears at the lines. Her only other appearance at the Meadowlands was in her first career start, a conditioned raced for two-year-old fillies on July 10, 2010. See You At Peelers, trained by Jimmy Takter and owned by his wife, Christina, and John and Jim Fielding, is not eligible to the Mistletoe Shalee on August 6.

The three-year-old filly is within reach of two notable winning streaks, those of Sanabelle Island, who won 23 straight races from 1996-1997, and Handle With Care, who won 24 from 1973-1974. Sanabelle Island first tasted defeat at the Meadowlands courtesy of Stienams Place in the 1997 Mistletoe Shalee. Handle With Care's streak ended to a filly named Joanns Time in 1974, pre-dating the 1976 opening of the Meadowlands.

The Tarport Hap stakes record is 1:49.2, set by Happy Dreamer in 2008. All three sophomore fillies who went on to become Horse Of The Year won the Tarport Hap along the way: Fan Hanover (1981), Bunny Lake (2001) and Rainbow Blue (2004).

Trainer Jimmy Takter won the Tarport Hap with Cabrini Hanover in 2005.
