Venerate captures inaugural Mohawk Million

MILTON, September 26, 2020 – Venerate and harness racing driver Andrew McCarthy powered off cover at the head of the stretch to win the $1,320,000 Mohawk Million on Saturday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park.  A full field of ten rookie trotters, including three fillies, met in the inaugural Mohawk Million, a “buy-in” race with nine slots available for the purchase of $110,000 each and a final slot awarded to the winner of the William Wellwood Memorial.  Racing in the slot of Brad Grant, Marvin Katz and partners, Venerate overcame a second-tier start with a perfect steer from McCarthy to win in 1:53.2. The Julie Miller trainee got away eighth and was able to follow the favourite Donna Soprano, eventually muscling by the previously undefeated filly to win by three-quarters of a lengh.  “I was hoping I’d get out of there a little closer, but after scoring him down I knew I couldn’t make him accelerate too fast, so I just wanted to get out of there upright,” said McCarthy. “He’s a very strong horse, I’ve seen that, I didn’t really care how far back I got, just figured I’d have to get through that first turn and then worry about where I’m going from there.  “The speed was pretty tough early, so it worked out where I could end up getting a pretty good trip, but when I looked up at the eighth-pole I was a long away back.”  The opening stages of the race saw several horses leaving hard, causing a four-wide push into the first-turn. Altar cut a :27 opening-quarter before handing the lead over to Wellwood winner On A Streak, who was four-wide entering the turn. Race-favourite Donna Soprano got away sixth, while Venerate was eighth.  On A Streak led to the half in 56.1 just as Insta Glam came with a powerful rush to claim the top spot going into the final-turn. Donna Soprano got her cue to go just before the half, as did Venerate and McCarthy seeing an opportunity to follow the favourite.  Insta Glam trotted a strong third-quarter to get the field to that station in 1:24 with a few lengths of separation.  In the stretch, Donna Soprano and Venerate trotted by Insta Glam to set up a battle of their own. The filly Donna Soprano tried to hold on, but the colt Venerate was too much to handle, powering by to victory.  “I’m so thankful for Andy and Julie and Pinske Stable,” said McCarthy. “And to Brad (Grant) for deciding to use me on this horse, I’m so thankful.”  On A Streak finished third, while Insta Glam was fourth.  A son of French stallion Love You, Venerate is owned by Pinske Stables and Andy Miller Stable. The connections negotiated a private deal with slot owner Brad Grant, Marvin Katz and partners to take a shot at the Mohawk Million.  “It makes me look pretty smart I guess,” laughed Grant. “We really believed in this race when we bought our slot. What Woodbine has done is something new and I think it’s great, it had a buzz to it all year long.”  Venerate is now four for seven and adds the winner’s share of the $1,320,000 purse to his previously earned $188,766.   The victory for driver McCarthy gives him a sweep of harness racing’s two richest races in 2020. McCarthy won the $1 million Hambletonian on August 8 at The Meadowlands in New Jersey.   “It feels amazing just to be involved in a race like this,” said McCarthy. “It’s important to hold races like this, it draws a lot of attention and hopefully it hangs around for next year.” The inaugural Mohawk Million was the richest standardbred race contested in Canada since the 2012 Pepsi North America Cup. The inaugural race headlined a $2.8 million card, which included the $720,000 Metro Pace, $455,000 Shes A Great Lady and $215,000 Milton.  A $2 win ticket on Venerate returned $6.80.    Mark McKelvie Woodbine Entertainment, Mohawk Park Manager, Communications & Content

Exploit and driver Doug McNair winning in 1:50.4,Harness racing

Exploit delivers Metro Pace stunner

MILTON, September 26, 2020 – Exploit and harness racing driver Doug McNair stole the spotlight from Tony Alagna stablemate Abuckabett Hanover to win the $720,000 Metro Pace on Saturday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park.  McNair mapped out a perfect second-over trip for Exploit on the back of 1/5 favourite Abuckabett Hanover to surge by powerfully in the lane for a 1:50.4 win at odds of 35-1.  “He was feeling real good and we were following the best horse in the race I thought,” said McNair. “He swelled right up in the last turn and kind of surprised me a little bit when he blew them all and he raced great.”  Lawless Shadow rocketed out to the front, posting a :26 opener. Bayfield Beach looped to the top from second and led the field to the half in :55.1 and three-quarters in 1:22.1.  Abuckabett Hanover got away sixth and started the first-up bid in the second-quarter. The Alagna grinded to within a length of the lead at three-quarters, while Exploit followed his every move.  In the stretch, Exploit shot off cover to surge by his stablemate and eventually by a game Bayfield Beach to win by half a length in 1:50.4. Lawless Shadow crossed the line third, while Abuckabett Hanover was fourth.  A son of Somebeachsomewhere, Exploit was two for seven coming into the Metro final and had finished fourth in his elimination. The Alagna trainee was a $165,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase and adds $360,000 in earnings to a previously earned $26,457 for owners LeBlanc and Kribbs, Joe Sbrocco, In The GYM Partners and Joe Barbera.  Exploit’s triumph gives driver McNair his first Metro title and trainer Alagna his third to go with wins in 2012 with Captaintreacherous and 2014 with Artspeak.  “They do a great job,” said McNair of the Alagna barn. “It’s great to get to drive for them and their horse showed up tonight.”  A $2 win ticket on Exploit returned $73.90.    Mark McKelvie Woodbine Entertainment, Mohawk Park Manager, Communications & Content

Caviart Audrey went from second to first following a long inquiry,Harness racing

Caviart Audrey first in wild Shes A Great Lady

MILTON, September 26, 2020 - Caviart Audrey went from second to first following a long inquiry in Saturday's $455,000 Shes A Great Lady at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Scarlett Hanover and driver Andrew McCarthy found a seam late at the pylons after screaming for room throughout the stretch. It appeared instantly that Scarlett Hanover had grabbed the victory, however, the Judges lit the inquiry sign and found Scarlett Hanover caused interference to a pair of horses when searching for room, causing a disqualification to ninth. The incident was a bump to Lady Arthur, causing a chain-reaction bump into Twin B Sunkissed who went off stride. Nancy Takter trainee Caviart Audrey and driver Yannick Gingras inherited the victory after a very game effort in a race filled with action from start to finish. Scarlett Hanover blasted to the lead, posting a :26 opening-quarter. Notorious Pink rushed to the top in the second-quarter from fourth and posted blistering fractions of :53.4 and 1:21.4. Caviart Audrey moved from mid-pack at the half and pressed first-up around the final-turn. The lead fillies were clearly fatigued from the hot fractions, but gamely dug in. Notorious Pink kept the rail shut, as Scarlett Hanover and McCarthy were crying for room. As expected, the backfield came to life in the lane to set up a wild finish. A five-across finish saw Scarlett Hanover sneak up the rail to hit the wire first in 1:52.2. Caviart Audrey was second by a head, but was placed first following the inquiry. Notorious Pink was third placed second, while Paulas Bet Hanover was placed third and Best Head West placed fourth. A daughter of superstars Somebeachsomewhere and Darlins Delight, Caviart Audrey was a $280,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase. The victory gives her five wins in six starts and $354,237 in earnings for owners Caviart Farms. A $2 win ticket on Caviart Audrey returned $3.70.   Mark McKelvie Woodbine Entertainment, Mohawk Park Manager, Communications & Content

Kissin In The Sand,Harness racing

No touching Kissin In The Sand

MILTON, September 26, 2020 – Kissin In The Sand brushed to the lead in the second-quarter and scooted away with ease to a 1:49 harness racing victory in the $215,000 Milton Stakes.  Jody Jamieson guided the Nancy Takter trainee to victory, moving to the lead from third, creating separation on rivals racing to three-quarters and then pacing home in :26.4 to close out a victory of five lengths.  “I just figured we’d get away a little bit close and see how it panned out,” said Jamieson. “It worked out perfectly to get back to the lead and she just did the rest. Nancy and her team had her awesome tonight and she was unbeatable really.”  The third-quarter was the decisive quarter in the race, as Kissin In The Sand paced a :28 split without any pressure. Treacherous Reign committed first-up going into the far turn, but didn’t gain much ground, leaving the leader untouched.  Kissin In The Sand with the jump on her rivals never had any anxious moments. Lit De Rose, who left hard, dug in at the rail to finish second. Caviart Ally sat second-over turning for home and edged Treacherous Reign for third.  A five-year-old, Kissin In The Sand was large in her elimination, pacing home in :25.2 to win in 1:49.2. The elimination was her first start in several weeks.  “This mare is entirely 100 per cent due to Nancy Takter,” praised co-owner Marvin Katz. “From the time she was a baby, developing her as a baby she’s loved her…Nancy and I have had 50 discussions about stopping with her, because we want to breed of course, and it’s Nancy who has insisted that she’s good and great, Nancy loves this filly and deserves absolutely all the credit in the world.”  Kissin In The Sand is owned by Katz and Hatfield Stables and goes over $2 million in career earnings with the Milton Stakes victory. She is now three for nine on the season and has 22 wins.  A $2 win ticket on Kissin In The Sand returned $5.    Mark McKelvie Woodbine Entertainment, Mohawk Park Manager, Communications & Content

Standardbred Canada's Trot Insider has learned that Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Famer William ‘Bill’ Galvin of Mississauga, Ont. has passed away at the age of 89. A native of Arnprior, Ont., Galvin made a tremendous impact on horse racing in the country -- so much so that he was part of just the second class to be inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame’s Communicator category. Galvin was a Canadian horse racing historian, poet, author, publisher, educator, horseman, humanitarian, publicist, former thoroughbred racing official and executive editor of TROT Magazine. His promotions transcended racing. He led a charge to bring harness racing onto the ice on Ottawa’s Rideau Canal and expose the sport to thousands of potential fans, one of those a young future Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau. He started the Race for MS fundraiser to gain exposure for the sport, and ran numerous other high profile campaigns dedicated to the well-being of horse racing during his career. He was also a member of the Advisory board for the School of Equine Studies at Toronto’s Humber College of Applied Arts. To read the rest of the story, click here.

Plainville, MA --- The $1.4 million (est.) Massachusetts Sire Stakes kick off on Sunday (Sept. 27) at Plainridge Park and the 2020 edition looks to be one of the most competitive harness racing sessions to date. With the flexibility of the Massachusetts resident mare program, many of the eligibles shipping in have already competed in other sire stake programs this year and are coming into these stakes in top form. The 3-year-old divisions for both genders and gaits will take place on Sunday (Sept. 27) followed by the 2-year-olds on Monday (Sept. 28). Post time for both days will be 2 p.m. Sunday's card has 28 sophomores going postward including two 2-year-old champions looking to repeat at three. Without A Warning (RC Royalty-Concentration) was the 2019 MASS champion 2-year-old trotting filly who ended the year with $188,160 on her card after sweeping all three legs and the final. This year the filly has been competing successfully in the New York Sire Stakes all summer, finished as the second highest point-getter in her division and made the $225,000 final for the second year in a row. In that race she finished a very solid third behind a runaway Hypnotic Am. Two starts before that she posted an impressive win 1:55.1 in a NYSS event at Yonkers Raceway and all tolled, has made $138,662 in only eight starts this year. Her main competition is Dramatra (Trixton-Bourbon N Grits) who is a sister to 2013 Hambletonian champion Royalty for Life. Dramatra has seen limited stake competition in New Jersey, making only five starts over the last two years. But she has been building an impressive resume recently in overnights at Plainridge where she has won four out of her last six starts including a lifetime best 1:55.1 outing in August. She comes into this first leg off a 1:55.3 win and looks to be tuned up and ready for a top effort. Both fillies are trained by George Ducharme. Scott Zeron will drive Without A Warning from post three at 6-5 and Shawn Gray will steer Dramatra from post two at 9-5. The other returning champion Sunday is pacing gelding Finnbar (Real Desire-Unbeachable) who is coming off a lifetime best win of 1:53.3 just two weeks ago. He followed up that trip with a solid second place finish after being parked out most of the mile. Has been racing consistently at Plainridge but has shown his best form in those two starts. Wyatt J (American Ideal-Think Pink) rolls into town on the strength of a four-race win streak at Yonkers Raceway that saw him take a career best mark of 1:53.1. After two NYSS starts earlier this summer, Wyatt J found his groove in overnight condition races and looks to cash in during the month of October in Massachusetts. Trainer Nancy Longobardi has Ron Cushing up behind Finnbar from post five at 7-1 while Wyatt J will team with Scott Zeron from post two at 9-5 for trainer Linda Toscano. The 3-year-old male trotting division should be very closely contested having three standout performers. Double Dealing (RC Royalty-Heather Spur) is another Ducharme pupil and was second best in the MASS final last year. In 2020 Double Dealing was very effective in the NYSS Excel A series where he made the $50,000 final. He has four wins this year and took a lifetime mark of 1:54.2 at Tioga Downs. Then there is the powerful duo from the Domenico Cecere barn, Dazzling Lindy and Marquis Lafayette. Dazzling Lindy (Crazed-Lindy On The Rocks) finished third in the MASS final last year and has come back looking much improved. In only five starts at Plainridge, Dazzling Lindy has won three while finishing second and third in the other two. His wins include a lifetime best 1:55.2 outing last week. Marquis Lafayette (Ready For Cash-Highscore Kemp) has only four lifetime starts, but his single 2020 start is worth noting. It was a 13-1/2 length, 1:55.2 romp that gives immediate legitimacy to his presence. Double Dealing drew the pylons for driver Shawn Gray and is 3-2. Dazzling Lindy and Drew Monti leave from post six at 2-1 and Marquis Lafayette starts from post five at 5-2 for Scott Zeron. The 3-year-old pacing fillies are also closely matched with a former track record holder leading the way. Ry's Red Rocket (Sunshine Beach-Mo Molly Blue Chip) broke the Plainridge track record for 3-year-old pacing fillies on July 23 when she went a personal best 1:52.2 mile. Whereas that mark has since been broken again, she has continued to race well through the summer and is highly regarded here. She's A Fireball (Western Maverick-Fire Can Fly) was the Maine Sire Stake champion at two but did not fare well in the MASS final after making a break. This year she has two wins, a new mark of 1:55.1 and was race timed in 1:52.4 while finishing only 1-3/4 lengths behind Ry's Red Rocket in her track record performance. Trainer Gretchen Athearn has Matty "Ice" Athearn up behind Ry's Red Rocket who drew post six at 3-2 while Ron Cushing will steer She's A Fireball from the pylons at 5-2 for trainer Heidi Gibbs. The 2-year-old divisions begin on Monday (Sept. 28) as 33 first-year campaigners go postward. The trotting fillies will go in two divisions week one and each has a definite favorite. Moni For Lindy (Credit Winner-Live Moni) competed twice in the NYSS this year, winning at Tioga Downs in 1:55.3. She won two starts ago in the Wood End Light series at Plainridge Park in 1:57.4 and is the even money chalk from post four in the short field. The Domenico Cecere trained filly will be driven by Scott Zeron. In the second split, Me Too Baby (Muscle Hill-Baby Shaq) comes in off an impressive gate to wire victory in 1:58.2 in a division of the Wood End Light and looks to have a decided advantage over her competitors after that start. Me Too Baby is the 3-5 favorite off the pylons for Team Athearn. The pacing males have several strong entrants and the weeks leading up to the finals should be interesting. Mullinax (American Ideal-Up Front Kellie Jo) was a star in the NYSS Excel A series this year, winning two legs before going a lifetime best 1:53.2 mile in the $50,000 final. Plus he has won four out of his last five starts, finishing second in the other which brings him into this race at his best for trainer Mark Ford. Maui (Bettor's Delight-Barbara Ann) had two impressive wins in 1:54 and 1:54.3 in condition races before falling short in his most recent effort in Plainridge's Nauset Light series while stablemate Dancing Lew (Rocknroll Dance-Love Rocks) just took his mark of 1:54.4 at Plainridge after finishing fifth in his lone Pennsylvania Stallion Series start at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Both geldings hail from the Kevin Switzer stable. Mullinax is 2-1 from post seven with Scott Zeron, Maui leaves from post two with Shawn Gray at 8-5 and Dancing Lew drew post six with Bruce Ranger at 7-2. The trotting colts and geldings feature two more standouts from the NYSS. Incommunicado (Chapter Seven-Gran Cavalla) was the fourth leading point-getter among his peers and finished third in the NYSS final at Yonkers after cutting the mile and falling short by only 1/2 length. Trainer Ake Svanstedt will be making his first appearance in the MASS and looks to be one to beat. Beantown Madness (Conway Hall-Armbro Archer) competed in the NYSS Excel B series all summer where he amassed four wins in five starts. In his last start at Plainridge he won by five lengths in a career best 1:56.1, which was only 2/5th's of a second off the track record. Another George Ducharme trainee, Beantown Madness will have much to say in the coming weeks. Incommunicado leaves from post six at 2-1 with Scott Zeron and Beantown Madness drew post eight with Shawn Gray at 3-2. The pacing fillies offer a wide open affair that should go down to the wire. Rightfully Mine (American Ideal-Leah) finished as the third top point-getter in the NYSS and made the final where she drew poorly and had a rough trip. So Amazing (So Surreal-Teddy Ballgirl) was a NYSS Excel A star that also made that final and had an unfortunate draw. So Amazing beat Rightfully Mine at Plainridge Park on September 4 in the Nauset Light series where she went a career best 1:53.4. Suzie Blue Chip (American Ideal-Betty Hill) comes in off three straight wins including her 1:54.4 best at Plainridge and a NYSS Excel B event. Rightfully Mine drew post two for trainer Sheena Mcelhiney who has Scott Zeron up at 2-1, Ducharme's So Amazing drew post seven at 5-1 for Bruce Ranger and Suzie Blue Chip starts from post six at 9-5 with Shawn Gray up for Eve Bergeron.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The Quebec Jockey Club, the only harness racing horsemen's association in North America that is run by horse people and is a not-for-profit group, is hosting the $508,000 Super Sunday in Quebec at the Hippodrome 3R this Sunday. The 12-race program will feature eight championship finals for two and three-year-old trotters and pacers. It is the richest day of horse racing in all of Quebec. The finals for three-year-old's each race for a purse of $65,000 and the two-year-old finals each go for $55,000. There is one final for two-year-old trotting fillies that will be a non-wagering event held after the first race on the card Sunday. Post time for Super Sunday is 1:00 pm and joining the leading drivers at the track, Pascal Berube, Stephane Gendron, Stephane Brosseau and Pierre-Luc Roy, will be two of the top drivers in all of Canada, Sylvain Filion and Louis-Philippe Roy. Both drivers began their careers at the Hippodrome 3R. Filion will be driving two horses that are trained by his father, Hall of Famer Yves Filion, in the finals. They are Celia Bayama (race 7) and Cadillac Bayama (race 9), both of whom are the betting favorites in their respective finals. Filion has a total of five drives in the finals. Louis-Philippe Roy has returned to drive on Super Sunday at the request of his longtime friend, trainer Francis Richard, who has five horses in the finals. They are Genetic Taurus (race 6), Ibiza Panic (race 7), YS Do It Right (race 9), Streakazana (race 10) and HP I Got To Play (race 11). Roy will drive in six of the finals. "It will be nice to see my friends from the track," Roy said. "And I also planned to spend the night in Quebec City with my parents after the races. My good friend Francis (Richard) asked me if I wanted to come and drive all of his horses in the finals, so I thought it would be a good time plan a little trip in Quebec, as I didn't have the chance to go back since Christmas with everything that happened with the Covid." There are two horses who are seeking sweeps of the series and finals. They are Mag N Lady and Acaena De Chakrika. Mag N Lady, a two-year-old trotting filly by Royalty For Life, headlines the non-wagering final. She has won her last three starts, all in the Future Stars Series for trainer-driver and co-owner Jean Francois Maguire of Ontario. In her last start, Mag N Lady set a track record with an amazing 1:59.2 victory, becoming the first two-year-old ever at H3R to trot under 2:00. Acaena De Chakrika goes from post 5 in the 10th race for driver Stephane Brosseau. The filly by Sunshine Beach was last year's two-year-old filly champion. This year she has swept all three preliminary legs, the fastest a lifetime mark of 1:56.4 for trainer Dany Fontaine and owner-breeder Diane Lepine of Quebec City.

Anderson, IN--- They had eight high quality harness racing rivals including world champion Guardian AS, Breeders Crown victor Fiftydallarbill, Indiana champions Custom Cantab and Bridge To Jesse’s and defending champion Lindy The Great but it all came down to Atlanta and Gimpanzee on Friday (Sept. 5) at Harrah’s Hoosier Park in the $150,000 Caesar’s Trotting Classic. The mare and stallion did not disappoint as two of the most talented horses in the sport engaged in a scintillating stretch duel in which Gimpanzee narrowly prevailed.  Immediately subsequent to the wings of the gate unfolding, Guardian AS (Tim Tetrick) assumed control from post position nine but he would only remain in that position after a first quarter in a spritely :26.3. That is when David Miller decided to steer Atlanta from sixth straight to the lead. The 5-year-old daughter of Chapter Seven appeared to relish the opportunity to obtain the lead and did not demonstrate any evidence of relinquishing that advantage as she led the field through fractions of :55 and 1:22.4 through the final turn.   Atlanta, however, was about to realize Gimpanzee and Brian Sears had other plans.    Gimpanzee was the slight favorite over the 2018 Hambletonian winner and settled in third for the first quarter mile after starting from post position six. When Atlanta moved to the front, Gimpanzee followed her hoofprints and around the track, biding his time based on Sears’ guidance as to when he should find his best stride.   As these two horses made trotted their way to the finish line it appeared Atlanta would preserve until with roughly a 1/16 of a mile remained Gimpanzee began to inch ever closer. Would he catch the $425, 600 Maple Leaf Trot winner? After all, she had got the best of him in that event when he came home third.  As the mare dug in it seemed she would do so once again. Yet Gimpanzee continued to advance as did Lindy The Great (Andy Miller), but it was clearly a two-horse race. Gimpanzee then drew alongside Atlanta and in a flash was in front. On this occasion, it would be he and not the mare who would visit the winner’s circle at the Anderson oval. Gimpanzee recorded a final time of 1:51.2 as did Atlanta but his :28.1 final panel compared to her :28.3 final quarter mile proved to be the difference.   Lindy The Great held off a fast closing Crystal Fashion (Jordan Stratton) for the show spot.  “He wasn’t 100 up in Canada but he wasn’t as sharp as he was all year,” said Marcus Melander, Gimpanzee’s trainer. “I wanted to qualify him last week to see if he was back to normal and I brought him here because he was. This worked out for his schedule. He has Lexington in two weeks and then the Breeders Crown. The track was good here today and I’m thrilled to be back in a month or so. He always gets the job done, he can race down Atlanta like he did today. She’s an amazing filly but today we beat her and we’re happy about that.”  Officials with Harrah's Hoosier Park present the winning trophy to the connections of Gimpanzee.    -- Photo courtesy of Dean Gillette Photography. Owned by Courant Inc. and S R F Stable, Dan Patch Award winner and dual Breeders Crown champion Gimpanzee now has collected $2.48 million during his career and after an undefeated freshman campaign his record is now 31-21-2-3.   He paid $3.60 to win with Atlanta providing $3.20 to place. Lindy The Great was $3.40 to show.   Live racing will continue at Harrah's Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, September 26. With a daily post time of 6:30 pm, live racing at Harrah’s Hoosier Park will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 21, highlighted by the return of the Breeders Crown October 30 & 31.  For more information on the upcoming entertainment or live racing schedule, please visit     By: Kimberly French, for Harrah's Hoosier Park Racing & Casino

Crucial edges stablemate Sister Sledge for Moni Maker Triumph   Anderson, IN --- Crucial with David Miller holding the lines was the first to enter the harness racing winner’s circle in Grand Circuit action at Harrah’s Hoosier Park on Friday (Sept. 5) when the 3-year-old filly captured the $105,000 Moni Maker Stakes. The daughter of Father Patrick-Jolene Jolene collected the first of eight trophies on Breeders Crown Preview evening. The sensational 15-race card disseminated $1.2 million in purse money.   Leaving from post position five in a field reduced to five after the scratch of the No. 2 horse Princess Dubai, Crucial floated from the gate and went straight to the lead with Sister Sledge (Brian Sears) tracking in second. The Ron Burke trainee established the first fraction of :27.1 with ease as the field went around the first turn in single file. Crucial established the pattern of the entire contest as she went by the half-mile pole in :57.4 and the three-quarter marker in 1:27. Her rivals appeared content to allow the filly her own way on the front.   Shortly after the field rounded the final turn, Sister Sledge, who is also Crucial’s stablemate, and Sears made their bid for victory as they came on through the inside. It appeared Sister Sledge may trot past Crucial shortly before the wire but when asked the leader kept to her task and hit the wire in front with Indiana champion Rock Swan (Trace Tetrick) in third. The final time was 1:54.1.  Owned by Burke Racing Stable, William Donavan, J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby and Weaver Bruscemi, the filly lifted her career bankroll to ____ and improved her overall record to 22-8-2-5. She most recently finished third in the $250,000 Kentucky Sire Stakes final at Red Mile and was crowned a Pennsylvania Sire Stake champion after winning the $252,000 final in her previous trip to the post. Crucial was also fourth in the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks and has been an extremely consistent performer throughout her career.   “She has flown under the radar for us just a tad,” said co-owner Mark Weaver. “Sister Sledge was just so good at two I guess I can understand why. Crucial just continues to improve and David Miller really seems to get along with her. She’s raced great for him every time he’s driven her, included a locked-in fourth in the Hambletonian Oaks.”  Sent off as the second choice behind the favored Sister Sledge, Crucial paid $4.20 to win. Sister Sledge provided her supporters with $2.20 to place and Rock Swan’s backers received $2.20 to show.    Test Of Faith hands Somethingbeautiful her first defeat in Kentuckiana Stallion Management  Fresh off her score in the $225,000 New York Sire Stakes final, Test Of Faith (David Miller) easily passed the previously undefeated Somethingbeautiful (LeWayne Miller) to collect her sixth consecutive victory in the $220,000 Kentuckiana Stallion Management for freshman pacing fillies.   A daughter of Art Major-Cannae Cammie, Test Of Faith was the slight favorite over Somethingbeautiful at post time. The Brett Pelling pupil began her journey over the Anderson oval from post position seven and settled in fourth position through the first split of :27.1 established by Continualou (Joe Bongiorno). After the first quarter mile, Miller moved Somethingbeautiful to the lead while Test Of Faith continued to remain in fourth. Somethingbeautiful hit the half in :57 and passed the three-quarter pole in 1:25.1 while Test Of Faith moved into third. As the fillies hit the top of the stretch Test Of Faith advanced into second and hit her best stride midway through the stretch.   Somethingbeautiful did not offer much resistance and Test Of Faith powered home to win in 1:51.3. Gd Rockin Kay Trace Tetrick picked up the show spot.   “She was very relaxed out there,” Miller said. “And did it very easily.”  Owned by Melvin Segal, Kentuckiana Racing Stable and Eddie Gran, Test Of Faith improved to 7-6-1 lifetime and now sports a bankroll of $367,750.   Test Of Faith paid $4.40 to win with Somethingbeautiful paying $2.60 and Gd Rockin Kay $4.80.     Brookview Bolt takes the Madison County  Sam Widger placed Brookview Bolt on the lead immediately after their departure from post position four and the duo never afforded their other eight competitors with the opportunity to gain that advantage in the $40,000 Madison County for 2-year-old trotting colts and geldings. Trained by Ron Burke and owned by Burke Racing Stable, Knox Services, J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby and Weaver Bruscemi, the son of Swan For All-Witty’s Winner is now has a resume of 8-4-2-1 and has earned $86,950.   Swingforthefences (Peter Wrenn) was second and Bridge To Success (John De Long) closed stoutly to be third.   Brookview Bolt paid $7.40 to win while Swingforthefences paid his backers $3.20 and Bridge To Success $3.40.     Iteration impresses in Kentuckiana Stallion Management  Already attracting attention in her young career as the younger full sister to world and Breeders Crown champion Gimpanzee, Iteration (Brian Sears) demonstrated she has plenty of talent of her own with a gate to wire victory in the $221,000 in this contest. Big City Pearl (Verlin Yoder) was second and Swift Swanda (Trace Tetrick) was third.   Iteration, a daughter of Chapter Seven-Steamy Windows, was sent straight to the front after starting her mile from post position five and that is where she remained. The filly clicked off fractions of :27.4, :57.3 and 1:26.2 before stopping the clock in 1:55 well in hand.   “She is a lot like Gimpanzee,” said Sears. “Not much bothers her and she has real ability. She is also very easy to drive.”   Trained by Marcus Melander for owner Courant Inc., Iteration now has a record of 6-4-1-1 and a bankroll of $258,194. She paid $4 to win. Big Pearl was $5.40 to show and Swift Swanda paid $4.20.     No Lou Zing shows a new dimension in Jenna’s Beach Boy  After a freshman campaign in which he only raced on three occasions and failed to hit the board in all three attempts, No Lou Zing (Dexter Dunn) collected his sixth victory from 10 starts this season and has not failed to hit the board in any event he has competed in. Splash Brother (Trace Tetrick) was second and Allywag Hanover (Tim Tetrick) was third in this $100,000 race for 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings.   No Lou Zing, a son of Sweet Lou-Terroronthebeach, broke alertly from post position four and Dunn was not about to impede his momentum. The gelding went straight to the lead and played “catch me if you can” with his nine rivals. Obviously they could not as No Lou Zing appeared to only grow stronger as the mile went on. He established splits of :26.1, :55.2, and 1:23 prior to hitting the line in 1:49.3. It was a lifetime best for a horse that had never been on the front in that fashion and on this occasion, it was not quite by design.   “He was really immature last year, he had no concept of what being a racehorse entailed,” trainer Nancy Takter said. “We gelded him and turned him out. Really was babying him racing off the pace. I was nervous when he went to the lead. Probably not the plan for him to be on the front but it was really rewarding to see his maturity and how much he’s become a racehorse. We actually didn’t have him staked very much this year because he didn’t race much last year but it has been very rewarding watching him progress this season.”  Owned by 3 Brothers Stables, Rojan Stables and Caviart Farms, No Lou Zing now has a career record of 13-6-3-1 and has amassed $322,418 in purse money.   He paid $4 to win with Splash Brother providing $5.60 to place. Allywag Hanover paid $2.20 to show.     Southwind Gendry sails home to win The Elevation  It required every inch of the long Hoosier Park stretch but favored Southwind Gendry (David Miller) got the job done in this $120,000 event for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers. Virgo (Tim Tetrick) was second and What’s Your Beef (Trace Tetrick) was third.  A son of 2016 Horse of the Year Always B Miki’s first crop, Southwind Gendry is out of the Cam’s Card Shark Mare Gambler’s Passion. He commenced his journey from post position four in fourth place while What’s Your Beef paced through fractions of :27.2, :55.3 and 1:23.2. When the field of 10 entered the top of the stretch it appeared What’s Your Beef’s efforts where beginning to take their toll and Southwind Gendry began to move from fourth place on his outside.   Just when it appeared What’s Your Beef may hold on, Southwind Gendry provided one final burst to surpass the leader just prior to the finish line. The winning time was 1:50.4.  Owned by Burke Racing Stable, Philip Collura, Joe Sbrocco, Knox Services, Weaver Bruscemi and J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby, Southwind Gendry’s record now stands at 8-6-0-0 and he has earned $299,369.   Southwind Gendry paid $2.70 as the public’s top choice. Virgo paid $9 to place and What’s Your Beef $8.40.    by Kim French

ANDERSON, Ind.—September 24, 2020— On a night filled with stakes harness racing action, This Is The Plan made Hoosier Park history as he became the first ever back-to back winner of the $140,000 Hoosier Park Pacing Derby at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, September 26. With Dexter Dunn in the bike, This Is The Plan utilized a pocket trip to score the victory by three parts of a length in 1:49:1. Dismissed at odds of 7-1, the Ron Burke trainee left alertly for position then utilized the passing lane to capture his third win from ten seasonal starts. A power-packed field of ten lined up behind the wings of the gate and it was American History with Joe Bongiorno who protected their rail position and took the early lead through the opening quarter in a snappy :25.4.This Is The Plan left just enough from post three to grab a pocket seat while Backstreet Shadow and Tim Tetrick were next in line third. The field remained in straight formation through the half in :54:4. Backstreet Shadow was given the green light just before the three-quarters in 1:22 and he quickly ranged up to take command. When the field turned for home, the race appeared to be wide open. Backstreet Shadow clung to the lead and braced for the cavalry charge to the wire. Dorsoduro Hanover and Matt Kakaley fanned out across the track with a full head of steam but it was Dunn who urged This Is The Plan into the passing lane to get the victory. He was followed by stablemates Filibuster Hanover with Chris Page in second and Dorsoduro Hanover with Matt Kakaley in third. This Is The Plan paid $17.80 to win at the betting windows. “I wanted to get him out of there and he responded well,” driver Dexter Dunn noted in the winner’s circle. “Ronnie (Burke) told me before the race that this horse has been racing well so get him out of there early and then give him a shot late. This track takes a bit of getting used to. I had to work him through that long stretch but he really dug in well late.” With the victory, This Is The Plan now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $1,555,412 for owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi,  J&T Silva – Purnel & Libby and Lawrence Karr. The victory was one of three wins on the evening’s 15-race card for driver Dexter Dunn and one of three training wins for Ron Burke. This Is The Plan also gave Ron Burke his fifth victory in the Hoosier Park Pacing Derby. The son of Somebeachsomewhere-That’s The Plan was bred by Moni Market Breeders. With a daily post time of 6:30 pm, live racing at Harrah’s Hoosier Park will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 21, highlighted by the return of the Breeders Crown October 30 & 31.  For more information on the upcoming entertainment or live racing schedule, please visit    Rose Flood  |  Race Marketing & Operations Admin

ELORA, SEPT. 25, 2020 – A perfect fall night greeted the top Prospect Series horses as they gathered at Grand River Raceway on Friday, Sept. 25 for eight $15,000 Finals. Local reinsman Bruce Richardson piloted the first Prospect Series champion, guiding A La Mode Seelster to a front-end harness racing victory in the two-year-old pacing filly Final for trainer Gregg McNair of Guelph and owner Murray Cox of Rockwood, ON. “She made front kind of easy and got things her way, and when I asked her going into the last turn she responded and win kind of handily,” said Fergus resident Richardson, who was making his first appearance in A La Mode Seelster’s race bike. “He thought she’d be decent in there, thought she’d race good, so that’s what we were hoping for.” The win was the first of the season for Sunshine Beach daughter A La Mode Seelster, who finished one length ahead of fan favourite Carnival Heart. Unfortunately Carnival Heart caused interference to three of her peers heading for the halfway marker so she was set back to sixth and Lets Roar and Century Havana were promoted to second and third. Arthur, ON  residents Wayne and George Henry teamed up to win the two-year-old trotting colt Final with Arch We Lucky, who also went gate-to-wire, cruising home four and three-quarter lengths ahead of Kiss My Mass and Willywin. Wayne Henry drives and George Henry trains the Archangel son for Arthur resident William Checkley. Sauble Attack and Anthony Haughan emerged victorious from the two-year-old pacing colt Final, stalking fan favourite Kodiak Seelster through fractions of :28.4, :59 and 1:28.3 before sprinting down the stretch to a three-quarter length win in 1:57.2. Kodiak Seelster settled for second and Dubai Seelster was third. “He has been growing a lot this summer and fall, and he has been progressing. His last few starts he’s been getting stronger every week and I thought he looked pretty strong tonight,” said trainer Otis Hall. “Everybody is happy, my parents are happy, and my family is happy and the driver was happy with him, just everybody is happy, and the horse himself is happy.” The Ayr resident bred and owns Sauble Attack, through his Nasussito Racing Inc., in partnership with his parents Larry and Marilyn Hall’s Sauble Hill Farms of Tara, ON. His children, Scott and Melanie Hall, are the Bettors Delight gelding’s primary caretakers. Like Sauble Attack, Radical J J scored her second straight win in the two-year-old trotting filly Final. The Muscle Mass daughter and driver Scott Young led the field through fractions of :29.3, 1:00.2 and 1:30.4 and then opened up a five length gap in the stretch, stopping the clock at 2:01.1. One Smart Cookie finished second and Somewhat Sacy was third. “She raced her best race tonight,” said Young. “She’s been racing well all year, but I was happy for the filly that she got the Final to end the year.” The Guelph resident piloted Radical J J to the win for trainer Shawn Steacy of Brantford and owners David Reid of Sydenham, A K Malik Stable of Ottawa, Carmen Chrysdale of Mississauga and Bruno Dipoce of Wasaga Beach, ON. Driver Travis Henry piloted two Prospect Series Final winners, with the first coming in the three-year-old pacing filly contest. Starting from Post 3 with Land of Paradise, Henry was part of a six filly stampede into the first turn as the finalists vied for early position. Land of Paradise reached the front coming off the first turn, but was quickly overtaken by favourite Watch My Speed who led the way to a :26.4 opening quarter, :56.3 half and 1:26.3 three-quarters. Land Of Paradise stepped out in the stretch and battled to one-half length win over Hallsglensmavis in 1:57.3. Southwind Bayou completed the top three. “She’s been plugging away all year. She’s really green, she just a slow learner I guess,” said Henry. “She has races where you can see that it kind of clicks in her brain, and then she’ll have races where she doesn’t even seem like she knows what she’s doing out there. Tonight obviously it clicked and she was good.” Putnam resident Scott McNiven trains the Badlands Hanover daughter for his co-owners Thomas Brodhurst of London, Bradley McNiven of Embro and Shirley Griffin of St. Thomas, ON. Henry’s second Prospect Series Final victory came in the three-year-old trotting colt contest with Muscle Mass son Northern Flame, who got a head in front of pacesetter Hall Of Secrets at the 2:01 finish. Traveller finished third. “Travis didn’t make it from Mohawk, so he asked if I would drive him,” said Henry, who was a last minute replacement for Travis Cullen. “He said, ‘Don’t look at the program, he should be good tonight.’ And he said, ‘He’s honest and he’s got a lot of go’. There was a ton of early speed and they were battling out to the half pretty good, so I got a second-over trip and it just kind of worked out good.” The Embro resident engineered the win for trainer Jodie Cullen and owner Gestion J Y Blais Inc. of Montreal, QC. Driver Ryan DesRoche got his first Ontario-based stakes final victory in the three-year-old trotting filly division, guiding Muscles Aplenty to a 2:00.1 personal best for trainer Bill Shaw and owners Patricia Gibb of London and Jay Kressler of Kitchener, ON. Favourite Wheely Twicky was two and one-quarter lengths back in second and Credit Celebrity was third. “I knew if we could get away on the right foot that she was just as good as any of them in there,” said DesRoche, who had the Angus Hall daughter on the front before the quarter. “I kind of opened up a few lengths on the backside with her just because I knew she can get a little feeble late, so if I could open up enough on them I knew that she’d finish trotting the mile strong enough that they couldn’t get to her. And it worked out well.” In rein to Grand River Raceway’s leading driver Scott Coulter, Yannick Seelster clocked the fastest mile of the night in the three-year-old pacing colt Final, ringing up fractions of :27, :56.4 and 1:26.3 on his way to a 1:56 personal best. Favourite Dreaming Out Loud was one and one-half lengths back in second and Modern Writer was third. “He’s been racing well. Scott’s (Coulter) done a really good job with him, so I thought off the rail he’d have a pretty good shot, but there was a couple other decent ones in there, so I didn’t know,” said trainer Ted MacDonnell. “But he raced really well. He’s been kind of a slow learner and he still is just learning, but he’s putting the pieces together now.” Allenford resident MacDonnell shares ownership of the Big Jim gelding with Leonard Gamble of Etobicoke, ON. Complete results from Friday’s program are available at Grand River Raceway Results.   Prospect Series Administration  Ontario Racing Woodbine Mohawk Park

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – Fire Start Hanover, Commanding Officer and Summa Cum Laude all remained perfect through two harness racing legs of the Kindergarten Classic for 2-year-olds at The Meadowlands Friday night. Fire Start Hanover had an easy time of it in the first race filly pace, sailing down the road in a lifetime-best 1:52.1 to win by 1¾ lengths with driver Victor Kirby calling the shots. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Fit To Frame, who is trained by Nifty Norman, paid $3.20 to win as the 3-5 favorite and ran her overall winning streak to three. Commanding Officer completed an all-chalk Early Daily Double for trainer Tony Alagna and driver Scott Zeron. The 2-5 favorite cleared to the lead before the three-eighths on the way to a 1½-length romp in 1:52.1 in a division for colt and gelding pacers. The son of Captaintreacherous-Turnoffthelights returned $2.80 to win. Summa Cum Laude stayed unbeaten in taking another division for male pacers in race nine.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - This weekend is Super Sunday (Sept. 27) in Quebec with the Hippodrome 3R hosting eight championship harness racing finals of the Quebec-bred series and three return champions from 2019 will be defending their titles. It is the richest day of racing in Quebec for 2020 with more than $500,000 in purse money on Super Sunday. The three-year-old's compete for purses of $65,000 and the two-year-old's go for $55,000. The first return winner from 2019 is in the 6th race where Babidibou (post 6) defends this trotting title for trainer Maxime Velaye and owners Isidore Russo and Guy Corbeil. The son of Royalty For Life will have his regular pilot Stephane Gendron in the sulky. This year he has won four of eight starts including a lifetime mark of 1:57 in the Breeders Trophy Series. He was a game second against older horses in the Preferred Trot last week and prior to that had won two straight legs of the series. He is listed as the 5/2 second in the race. The race favorite is Kenogami Coco (post 1), who returns to H3R off two straight wins in the Grassroots at Mohawk Park, both in 1:56.2, his lifetime mark. The son of Wheeling N Dealin will be driven by Stephane Brosseau for trainer Dany Fountain and owner-breeder Gaetan Bono, Inc. of Laval. The next return winner is Acaena De Chakrika (post 5) in the 10th race championship for three-year-old pacing fillies. This daughter of Sunshine Beach is seeking to sweep the series after winning all three of her preliminary legs for driver Stephane Brosseau, the fastest a lifetime mark of 1:56.4. She is trained by Dany Fontaine for owner-breeder Diane Lepine of Quebec City. The race favorite and rightly so is Steakazana from post six. This daughter of Western Paradise has exploded on the scene at H3R with three straight wins. She has a record of 1:55.3 and last week at H3R defeated a field of older pacing mares in 1:58.4. She is trained by Francis Richard for the MCR Streakazana Group of Charlottetown, PE and will be driven by Louis-Philippe Roy, who has come back home from Ontario to compete on Super Sunday. Perhaps the toughest of all eight championship finals is the 11th race for the three-year-old pacing colts. Here is the entry from trainer Maxime Velaye and owner-breeder Guy Corbeil of Mirabel of Eclat De Rire (post 2) and Retour Au Jeu (post 4). Eclat De Rire is the defending champion. The son of Leader Bayama sports three wins this year, but none of them came in the series. He barely made the final because he had two seconds and one third place finish in the preliminary rounds. Stephane Gendron will drive Eclat De Rire, who has a mark this season of 1:56.1. His stablemate, Retour Au Jeu, has five wins in ten starts already in 2020 and sizzled in the series two starts back with a lifetime mark of 1:54.2. He has won two rounds and will be driven by Jonathan Lachance. Mickymaksomespeed (post 6) has had a superb season for owner, breeder and trainer Michel Allard of Saint-Esprit. This son of Mickey Hanover sports eight wins in just ten starts. Last week he defeated a strong field of older horses, winning with ease in 1:54.3. He has a lifetime mark of 1:53.3 taken at Rideau Carleton Raceway. The field also features Whitecookie (post 5), who won a leg of the series for trainer-driver and co-owner Marie Claude Auger; return winner CL Big Beach (post 7) and HP I Got To Play (post 1). There is no return winner in the 2nd race trot final for the fillies which is headlined by Kinnder High Class (post 3), who has won two straight at H3R. The fourth race Preferred Trot at H3R Sunday nearly saw a triple dead heat finish for win in the fourth race. Keepall and driver Pascal Berube left from post five to take command with Precieuse CC (Claude Beausoleil) sitting the two-hole trip and Bucketlist Hanover (Samuel Fillion) to the opening quarter mile in :28. Stuck first-over, Bucketlist Hanover kept the pressure on as Capteur De Rive (Stephane Gendron) took advantage of the second-over cover past the half mile marker in :56.3. By the three-quarters in 1:26.3, Keepall was still strong on the lead but as Bucketlist Hanover was not gaining ground, Gendron went three-wide with Capteur De Reve and they raced three-wide around the final turn into the top of the stretch. Precieuse CC found room to come after Keepall as did Capteur De Reve and those three finished in a photo finish. Keepall ended up winning by a nose in 1:58 over Precieuse CC with Capteur De Reve third by a head. It was a lifetime mark for Keepall, a six-year-old gelded son of Angus Hall, trained by Sylvain Tremblay for the Alpha Stable of Metabetchouan and Gino Curadeau of Fermont. The winner paid $10.40. Both Precieuse CC and Capteur De Reve are former Quebec-bred Series Champions. Holiday Party ($15.80), also a former champion, won the 7th race trot in 1:59.4 for driver Pascal Berube. Track Notes: H3R's leading driver, Pascal Berube, had another big day with a driving triple. Live racing resumes Sunday at H3R at 1:00 pm with the $500,000 Quebec Series Championships.

Krug (NZ) (Bettor’s Delight) confirmed his star status and made history at Alexandra Park on Friday night when producing an explosive sprint to win the first-ever running of an NZB Standardbred Harness Million event. Driver Blair Orange’s early decision to hand the lead to main rival It’s All About Faith (NZ) (Captaintreacherous) and Mark Purdon, proved a masterstroke when Krug outsprinted the pacemaker to win the $200,000 Listed NZB Standardbred Harness Million 2YO Colts & Geldings Final (2200m). Chrissie Dalgety etched her name in to NZB Standardbred’s history books as both the trainer and part-owner of the inaugural winner of a NZB Standardbred Harness Million Final. Dalgety, who trains in partnership with Nathan Purdon, went in to the race hopeful Krug would get the chance to show his best. And she got her wish thanks to Orange’s bold tactics. “It was very, very exciting,” Dalgety said. “Going in to the race I was just hoping he wouldn’t have any bad luck. In most big races that can happen – you can go sensationally and still not win, you just don’t know until you’re out there.” Krug was knocked down to Dalgety and her husband Cran’s Kentuckiana Lodge Ltd for $155,000 at NZB Standardbred’s National Yearling Sale in Christchurch in 2019. Though his speed and stamina suggest he is clearly an impeccable physical specimen, it is not just Krug’s athletic physique that makes him so good. “Cran eyed him up at the sales, he has impeccable breeding and he is a beautiful horse,” Dalgety said. “His personality is just outstanding, I kind of feel like he is half human sometimes.” Krug’s brilliant manners and calm demeanour helped him relax perfectly in to the trail after It’s All About Faith’s early burst to take the front. The star pacer came in to the Listed NZB Standardbred Harness Million 2YO Colts & Geldings Final when going down narrowly as the hot favourite to race rival American Dealer (NZ) (American Ideal) in last week’s $128,000 Group One Garrard’s Sires’ Stakes Final (1700m) at Alexandra Park. Rather than the defeat denting the Dalgety-Purdon camp’s confidence, the trainers made the most of the situation. “Everyone just expected him to come out and win last week,” Dalgety said. “It doesn’t matter how good you are, everyone is beatable. So, I think it took a bit of pressure of us, really.” Krug cleared out to win by three and three-quarter lengths over Its All About Faith. Stonewall Stud’s B D Joe (NZ) (Roll With Joe) ran a game third after working around the field to sit parked for the last lap of the race. Last week’s Group One winner American Dealer (NZ) (American Ideal) produced another strong performance when running on strongly in to fourth placing. Krug’s victory gave the honour of being crowned vendor of the first ever win in Harness Million history to Canterbury horseman Mark Smolenski’s Smolenski Stables. The Bettor’s Delight colt, from former top class racemare Champagne Princess (NZ) (Soky’s Atom), was bred and sold by the estate of Smolenski’s father, the late leading trainer and driver, Jack Smolenski. Attention now turns to next Friday's meeting at Addington where the running of both the NZB Standardbred Harness Million for 2YO Fillies and for 2YO Trotters will be contested.    NZB Standardbred

Columbus, MN - The Saturday afternoon (September 26) Harness Racing program at Running Aces played host to the Minnesota-Sired sophomore pacers with a total purse of $23,000.    The $11,500 filly division drew a field of seven with the Van Otterloo Stables entry of Hokey Toots (Darrell Wright) and Huftalookatdatfany (Nick Roland) sent off as the 2-5 favorites. Scarlett Ruby (Dean Magee) was the clear second choice in the field at 7-2.    Huftalookatdatfany was fastest away and quickly established command from post three while Scarlett Ruby also left very sharply and landed in the pocket, and D Vigilante (Brian Detgen) got away in third.    The early fractions were moderate (:28.4, :59.1) before Thegreatestislove (Brady Jenson) launched a mild first-over attack during the middle stages. Huftalookatdatfany was able to rebuff the challenge and led all the way into the lane but Scarlett Ruby had picked up the perfect trip and was loaded with pace near the wire, getting up for a 1-3/4 length tally in 1:57.2 for a new career mark.    Huftalookatdatfany held second over D Vigilante.    Scarlett Ruby ($9.00) is a daughter of Fancy Schmancy, owned by Dan Lehman and also trained by Dean Magee.    The $11,500 colts and geldings division went to It's A Marcs World (Nick Roland, $2.20) for two in a row. The sharp son of Marced Card has now won eight of eleven starts this year after another 4-1/4 length romp in 1:54.4.    Bunkerhill Phil (Braxten Boyd) was second best and Nothinbutagoodtime (Darrell Wright) checked in third.    The $8,500 Horses and Geldings Open Handicap Pace went to Heza Real Diamond (Nick Roland, $3.20) who converted a pocket trip into a 1:52.2 score by a neck over pacesetter Hoo Nien A (Chris Scicluna). Heza Real Diamond  now has eleven wins in twenty starts on the season for owner Orlando Nevarez and trainer Edwin Quevedo.    Driver Nick Roland led the Saturday program with three winners while both Jacob Cutting and Dean Magee each recorded a driving double. Trainer Jessica Johnson also had two winners on the card.   The 20 cent Pick-5 Jackpot carryover is now $16,005.27.    Live Racing continues at Running Aces through October 4, with action four days a week at 1:00 pm CDT.    By Darin Gagné, for Running Aces Casino, Hotel & Racetrack
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Neither three weeks off nor a horse grabbing the lead off the far turn could stop Highalator from continuing his winning ways at The Meadowlands, as the 6-year-old won his second straight after being under siege throughout the stretch at the mile oval Saturday night. For those who bet on the Jenny Bier trainee, who last raced on Sept. 5 at The Big M, it looked almost too good to be true in the early going, as driver Ricky Still urged the harness racing son of Somebeachsomewhere-Higher And Higher to the lead from post 10 without having to work too hard to do it. The quarter was reached in a leisurely :27.1 before the half was hit in a sleepy :55.3. But on the far turn, Jesse Duke N made a race of it after popping out of the three-hole on the far turn, and came after the leader with good momentum, actually grabbing a half-length advantage with three-sixteenths-of-a-mile to go. But Highalator had more. Through the stretch, Highalator and Jesse Duke N went at it toe-to-toe while U S Captain on the outside and Ideal Feeling at the rail made their way into the scrum. At the wire, Highalator determinedly prevailed in 1:50, finishing a head in front of Ideal Feeling. U S Captain, the 2-1 public choice, was third while Jesse Duke N was fourth. Owned by Jenny Bier, Joann Dombeck and Midsize Construction Inc., Highalator, who has won three of four 2020 starts at The Big M, returned $11.60 to win as the third choice in the wagering. He now has 37 victories from just 81 lifetime starts and earnings of $604,614. A LITTLE MORE: Brian Sears and Dexter Dunn sat atop the driver's colony for the evening, as each guided three winners. ...
