North America Cup winner JK Endofanera is the 2-1 morning line favorite for Saturday night's $776,000 Meadowlands Pace at Meadowlands Racetrack.
Trained by Ron Burke for 3 Brothers Stables, JK Endofanera will start from post 2 for the 10-horse pace with Brian Sears again driving.
JK Endofanera won an elimination race for the Meadowlands Pace as the 2-5 favorite.
"It's a pretty good bunch of colts and they were going to race me," Sears said following the race. "My horse raced game and was good to the wire."
The 3-year-old colt won the North America Cup last month as a 12-1 longshot versus nine other pacers. JK Endofanera comes into the Pace with five wins in six starts this year for $566,667.
The 5-2 second pick for the Meadowlands Pace is champion colt He's Watching. The Dan Patch Award winner won the second Meadowlands Pace elimination event and will leave from post 3 with Tim Tetrick driving.
"He's very fast and he's smart," said Tetrick who drove the colt for the second time. "He likes to win. I was just trying to put him in play, and work out that kind of a trip."
He's Watching was undefeated in eight starts in 2013 and has two wins in five starts this season for owners Menary Racing, Brad Gray, Michael Guerriero and the Muscara Racing Trust. The colt has banked $170,235 this year.
