Cotolo’s Harness Review
Dan Noble, who won driving titles at Northfield Park, Scioto Downs, The Red Mile, Lebanon and 25 different Ohio fairs, is among the colony at the Meadowlands now.
Noble has been driving at The Meadows, Buffalo and Saratoga, prepping for his debut in the historic atmosphere of New Jersey.
“I’m really anxious about driving with the top drivers at the Meadowlands,” Noble said. “It’s a lot easier to have a game plan work out and not make as many mistakes. It just makes you better compared to driving against average drivers.”
“First of all, I think I have to change up my driving style because I’m so used to being on a smaller track. I remember driving at Balmoral, you’re always making speed, yet not all the speed you can make early on a smaller track.”
Noble won his sixth drive at the Meadowlands on a horse that paid $9.60.
