Zendt eyes Hambletonian with pal Joey

The name may just be Joey, but Joey isn’t just some horse. In discussing the purchase at auction of Joey, her now-3-year-old trotting colt, trainer and co-owner Leslie Zendt exclaimed, “I just loved the name! You get all these long, 18-letter names and he comes along and his name is Joey. I fell in love with his name before I fell in love with him.” Entering Saturday’s $ 61,900 Tompkins-Geers Stakes for 3-year-old male trotters at The Meadowlands — which will serve as a measuring stick for whether the horse will enter the $ 1.2 million Hambletonian on Aug. 4 — Joey has won six of 10 career races for $ 36,700 in earnings.
