The biggest day on the harness racing calendar every year in North America is Hambletonian Day at The Meadowlands.

With just eight weeks to go until the big day, the contenders are all stepping out and as has become the norm, Jimmy Takter trainees are at the forefront of many of the discussions concerning potential winners.

Jimmy Takter needs no introduction to harness racing fans with a record of success with the straight out trotter that is second to none.

A Hall Of Fame inductee in 2012 and a four time trainer of the year, Jimmy has already won three Hambletonians and last year was very special when he drove the winner of the Hambletonian and trained the winner of the Hambletonian Oaks.

With over $13,000,000 in seasonal earnings in 2014, Jimmy shows no sign of slowing up and has several leading candidates for this years edition of the Hambletonian.

They are headed by last seasons two year old Breeders Crown winner in Pinkman 1:52.2 ($696,925) who is three from three this season.

Uncle Lasse 1:51.4 ($467,359) is another Takter trainee to start the season in the right fashion with a three from three record as well.

Throw in the rapidly improving Canepa Hanover 1:51.1 ($112,150) and Jimmy will once again hold a strong hand in this years race.

Recently Jimmy sat down on In The Sulky to give his thoughts on his runners this year.
