Rusty Nash scored a hat trick Sunday evening to be the top harness racing handicapper in week eight of the 2016 Hambletonian Society Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by DRF Harness, Green Acquisition Corporation, The Hambletonian Society, Hoosier Park Racing and Casino, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Northfield Park, The Raceway at Western Fair District, Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs by tabbing the winner of the Confederation Cup and two Preferreds on the Flamboro Downs Sunday night program. Jay Hochstetler remains comfortably perched on the top of the overall standings leading the pack by 108.3 points. The two Preferred races were added to the contest as the rules allow for up to two higher class non-Grand Circuit races to be added when only one Grand Circuit race is on the card. With the selection of Big Rich ($4.10), Woggy Rocks ($5.10), and Confederation Cup winning Rockin Ron ($3.60), Nash earned 38.25 points for the week. Dennis O'Hara, who stuck with Wiggle It Jiggleit, was second-best earning 26.85 points. Following close behind were Michael Carter (19.1) and Gordon Waterstone (18.63).

(May 10, 2016) - Following a bye week, Ray Cotolo had a big weeked earning 71.4 points and moving from 8th to 4th place in week seven of the 2016 harness racing Hambletonian Society Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by DRF Harness, Green Acquisition Corporation, The Hambletonian Society, Hoosier Park Racing and Casino, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Northfield Park, The Raceway at Western Fair District, Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs. While Cotolo made a big move, Jay Hochstetler remains in front, lengthening his lead slightly. Saturday was an Afternoon Delight for Cotolo as he reined in Dazzling Dollars ($22.60) in the Lady Suffolk at Freehold Raceway, earning 41.6 points for the afternoon. A duo of handicappers, Russ Adams and Mark Deutsch, tabbed 78-1 Curikee who finished third in the distaff stake earning 18 points a piece. Joe Bengston scored 16.2 points with his second place finisher Southwind Hope. While not the top handicapper on Sunday, Cotolo managed to earn 29.8 points on Sunday, nailing Solar Sister ($12.40) in the Chip Noble Memorial along with second place finisher Charmed Life in the Miami Valley Distaff. The top handicapper on Sunday was Rusty Nash who scored a Place-3 with second place finishes in the two Miami Valley stakes and the Elitlopp Playoff at the Meadowlands earning 30 points. Other handicappers who had good Sundays were Michael Carter (26.9 points), Adam Friedland (29.8), and Ray Garnett (23.6).

If you have been following the Meadowlands over the past few years, you have seen amateur races that were titled as GSY Amateur events. Ever wonder what GSY stands for, who they are, and why they race? VFTRG had the opportunity to talk to two officers of the GSY Amateur Driving Club, David Glasser and David Yarock, to get some answers. The GSY Amateur Series is named after Jeff Gural, Jason Settlemoir, and David Yarock who are the club founders. The series was established four years ago in an effort to add additional races to the C.K.G Billings Amateur Driving Series. Originally, the series was centered around Tioga Downs but included several other tracks. Today though, the series is focused on the Meadowlands even though on occasion they will compete at other area tracks; tracks such as Tioga Downs, Pocono Downs, Monticello Raceway, Harrah's Philadelphia, and Freehold here they are the featured amateur race on Open Space Day.. At this point, GSY's goal is to support the Meadowlands and provide competitive races for amateurs at the most recognized track in the United States. Members of GSY belong to other clubs as they look forward to racing as much as possible. In addition to GSY, many are members of the Freehold Amateur Driving Club as well as NAADA (which races primarily at Monticello, Yonkers, and Freehold) in addition to being members of the CKG Billings series which races nationwide. The beauty of amateur club racing is it give horse owners and others the opportunity to leave their desk job on a Friday afternoon and head to a track's locker room full of professional drivers, including members of the Hall of Fame and they compete on the same racetrack. As to the question of the ability of amateur drivers, there is a misconception as to their ability since 90% of amateurs hold a full license and are able to compete against professionals in regular races. Glasser pointed out he learned to drive in the 1980's when there were no amateur races, others have followed the same path. Bob Krivlen to name one continues to race against professional drivers with some success, while drivers like Glasser, such as Dein Spriggs, Roy Marohn, Bob Davis, and others who cut their teeth before amateur races were regularly contested raced with regular drivers successfully. One may think professional drivers resent the fact these amateur races are on the race card but you would be wrong as many of the pros are supportive of the amateurs. Just recently GSY and the amateur club at Pompano Park held a Pro-Am at Pompano Park which Dave Miller and Tim Tetrick participated in. A Pro-Am may be held at the Meadowlands in the fall and some pros have already indicated an interest in participating if one is added to the schedule. With amateurs racing weekly, how do they get the horses to race? Some drivers provide their own horses but other horses are provided by trainers. To help pay the expenses for these horses, the purse structure has been modified so every horse earns at least 3% of the purse if they finish out of the money. The club works with the racing secretary in determining the class of horses which should compete in this series and this year they are racing horses which would fill non-winners of $3,500 in their last five starts with $10,000 claimers also eligible to race in the 'B' series while those who are non-winners of $6,000 in their last five starts with $15,000 claimers racing in the 'A' races which is the same class which will compete on the Billings circuit. They primary key is to have competitive races so all the horses have a chance to earn money as this is an expensive 'hobby'. As you know, amateurs don't accept compensation for driving in these races. So where does the GSY driver commissions go to? Back in 2009, David Yarock started a scholarship fund in memory of his father and step-father to give scholarships to students seeking to pursue equine and harness racing studies as well as providing scholarships to those in the harness racing industry and their families seeking to pursue higher education. Since inception, over $150,000 has been distributed in scholarships. In addition to the driver commissions, annual club dues are also contributed to the fund. The club seeks racing opportunities to raise funds; the previously mentioned potential Meadowlands Pro-Am will raise additional funds for scholarships. Further information on the scholarship fund is available here. The club makes no secret of the fact they work in partnership with the Meadowlands. They supply races when the Meadowlands needs them. While the drivers enjoy racing for the sake of racing, they also aim to help the Meadowlands survive. With the slots-infused tracks drawing horses away from the Meadowlands, GSY helps fill races to complete the racing card. When GSY races at other tracks, it is either because they wish to support amateur racing and/or have races they need filled. From the amount of money being wagered, it appears the punters are pleased with the amateur races being carded on the wagering program. Glasser feels in some ways having races with amateur drivers is a plus because "anything can happen". He further feels some of today's gamblers want more random possibilities than the predictable outcomes one sees at many racetracks, citing the popularity of slot machines. The GSY races have growing pools and less predictable outcomes. Make no mistake, while fans don't want amateurs to take over an entire card (something done at Monticello Raceway sometime around 2013), they do like the fact amateur racing adds something to a few races on the wagering card. Of course, racing every week, handicappers have the opportunity to get used to the drivers and their abilities. When asked if GSY races could be added to Saturday night programs, it was made clear they are satisfied with the ability to race on Fridays. Dave Yarock always felt amateur racing could have a significant positive effect for the sport and is thoroughly delighted the betting public has embraced GSY races. With all the negative publicity the sport gets, the industry can be proud of the positive feedback coming out of the amateur driver movement; it is truly a growth area in an otherwise stagnant industry Of course, the appreciation goes two ways. The members of GSY appreciate the gamblers support because their wagering is what allows them to continue to race at the Meadowlands. Asked a hypothetical question if they would consider expanding to racing under saddle should pari-mutuels be approved for the sport, Glasser said it would be interesting to consider but they would have to gauge the interest of track officials and their members to see if there would be any interest in pursuing it. Of course, there are a lot of things which would have to happen before it would be an issue they would need to visit. by Allan Schott, for View From The Grandstand  Check out View From the Racetrack Grandstand.    

In week six of the 2016 Hambletonian Society Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by DRF Harness, Green Acquisition Corporation, The Hambletonian Society, Hoosier Park Racing and Casino, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Northfield Park, The Raceway at Western Fair District, Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs, Gordon Waterstone edged out several handicappers to be the top harness racing handicapper for the week. With regards to the overall lead, the story remains the same as Jay Hochstetler continues his mastery, extending his lead to 100.13 points over the second place Matt Rose with 389.75 points for the season thus far. Levy Memorial night left handicappers with five races to display their handicapping chops and by the end of the night, five of the handicappers managed to score hat tricks which made it a horse race for weekly honors. With 41.10 points, Waterstone edges out the others (with a second and third place finish to go along with his hat trick), moving into fifth place from last week's tenth place. Finishing second for the week was overall leader Hochstetler who earned 37.05 points, followed by a dead-heat for third with Dennis O'Hara and Matt Rose both earning 32 points for the week. Ray Garnett and Dennis O'Hara also had three winners on the card. Though shut out from selecting any winners, fourteenth place Joe Bengston managed to have a good week thanks to his selection of Bettor Rock On N in the Levy eligible tilt which earned him 20.2 of his 28.2 weekly points by finishing second. With only Grand Circuit elimination races this week, the handicappers get a week off before the contest kicks into high gear. The contest resumes with races on Saturday, May 7 as the road to the Hambletonian kicks off with the finals of the Dexter Cup and Lady Suffolk at Freehold Raceway, followed by the first Sunday (May 8) races of the contest headlined by the Mack Lobell Elitlopp Playoff at the Meadowlands and a duo of Miami Valley Distaffs for females on both gaits.

(April 17, 2016) - After five weeks of the 2016 Hambletonian Society Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by DRF Harness, Green Acquisition Corporation, The Hambletonian Society, Hoosier Park Racing and Casino, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Northfield Park, The Raceway at Western Fair District, Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs, Jay Hochstetler remains in front; the position he has held since day one. Hochstetler has an 88.05-point lead over the second place handicapper Mark Deutsch with a score of 352.7 points. Sitting in the third position is Matt Rose, 95.08 points behind the leader. At this early stage, this trio has gapped the balance of the field as 62.5 points separates the third and fourth positions. With favorites dominating this weekend's action, there was little movement in the standings with Dennis O'Hara leading the pack earning 29.08 points, enough to move from seventh to fourth as well as claiming the title of 'Weekly Leader'. O'Hara was one of seven handicappers who managed to score 20 points or more this weekend, with the balance of Club 20 being Hochstetler (25.98 points), Ray Garnett (24.5), Gordon Waterstone (24.2), Anne Stepien (23.7), Michael Carter (22.4), and Rusty Nash (20.3). The same group of horses meet up next week for Finals and Consolations of the Blue Chip Matchmaker and George Morton Levy Memorial Series, so it's unlikely there will be any breakouts this coming week. Once the Grand Circuit schedule heads into the field, one can expect some big moves.

(April 10, 2016) - Week four of the 2016 Hambletonian Society Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by DRF Harness, Green Acquisition Corporation, The Hambletonian Society, Hoosier Park Racing and Casino, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Northfield Park, The Raceway at Western Fair District, Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs in the books saw Ray Cotolo take advantage of longshots in the Blue Chip Matchmaker Series Friday night to leapfrog into fourth place from fifteenth place. With his 118.68 points for the week, Cotolo was the top handicapper for the week while Jay Hochstetler continues to be the overall leader with 326.73 points, 80.8 points in front of his closest competitors Mark Deutsch (245.93), closely followed by Matt Rose (240.33) who was just behind the duo in third. Honorable mention goes to Russ Adams whose 65.1 points for the past weekend moved him from twelfth to fifth place. While running off the board in the last of the Matchmaker series, Cotolo took advantage of the first two races by selecting CarolsIdeal ($19.80) in the fifth race and Yagonnakissmeornot ($37.80) in the sixth to earn 110.88 points of his 118.68 of his weekend total. Russ Adams had only one winner on Friday but made the most of it by earning 58.8 of his weekend total of 65.1 by connecting with Yagonnakissmeornot. With Saturday night having favorites winning three of the four contest divisions it was hard to make any real movement based solely on Saturday's performance and it was evident by the performances of Sally Hinckley and Matt Rose as both earned 29.85 of their weekly total, having three out of four winners on Saturday, missing only in the fifth race where Take It Back Terry finished a neck back denying both of them the evening grand slam. Eight other handicappers had two out of four winners Saturday evening.
