Canadian harness racing trainer Isaac Waxman is fired up about harness racing again - and rightly so. His stable star, former New Zealander, All Tiger N not only destroyed a nice field of 4-year-and-older pacers in a division of the $20,000 Beat The Heat Pacing Series at Mohawk on Saturday (June 25) but he also created a slice of breeding history.
The 7-year-old gelding became the fastest son ofwhen he and driver Luc Ouellette dealt to their eight opponents by 10 lengths in a career best 1:49.1. His earlier race sectionals were 13.1, 27.2, 55.1, 1:22.3 and 1:35.3.
A week earlier All Tiger N and Ouellette lit up the tote board winning the race after the North America Cup, paying $120 to win. That night they stopped the clock in 1:50.2.
“I’m fired up and glad to be back training. All Tiger N is an underrated pacer and hopefully now people will see just how talented he is. He will line up in a stake race this weekend and then the Final at Mohawk a week later.
It’s so good to be back training,” Waxman said.The Dundas (Ontario) based owner- trainer was suspended for one year from February 28, 2011 for shouting and displaying "vulgar profanities" after his pacer Windsun Rachel was scratched when hot favourite at Kawartha Downs on February 3.
However the 24-year-old won his appeal in front of three Ontario Racing Commission judges Thursday May 19.
"Training is what I do best and I believe I have a lot to offer the sport. I’m not too concerned about driving for now. All I want to do is give my stable 101 per cent. I love horses and I love seeing them win,” Waxman told Harnesslink.
He is scheduled to get his driver's licence back on February 28, 2012.
"I'm just glad it's all behind me and I can now put all my efforts into training again," Waxman said.
All Tiger N led from the outset in last Saturday’s mile. It was his third victory of the season and 19th lifetime win in 61 career outings, which increased his bankroll to $265,963.
All Tiger N is owned by Brenda Selwyn Waxman of Dundas, Ont. He was bred by Lindsay and Pam Turner of South Auckland, New Zealand.
All Tiger N paid $3.60 to win.
Waxman has five in work at Dundas. They are Lil Emotion, Mach It paid, Vertical Smile, Scapa and All Tiger N.
Meanwhile the former Waxman trained and Brenda Selwyn Waxman owned former Kiwi Flem N Em N also won a heat of the Beat The Heat Pacing Series at Mohawk last Saturday.
The 6-year-old son of, who is now trained by David Sabatelli at Lords Valley in Pennsylvania, won in 1:50.3. He was also driven by Ouellette.
Like All Tiger N, Flem N Em N led virtually from go to woe pacing the opening quarter in 26.3 and the half in 54.4 before losing the lead just briefly to Outrageous Art and Sylvain Filion.
The 1-1/4 length triumph was Flem n Em’s 14th in 62 starts and took his career earnings to $145,260.
He paid $4.40 to win.
