Harnesslink founder and CEO, John Curtin of New Zealand, has announced that beginning with the Meadowlands $2.8 million harness racing card Saturday, the Harnesslink website stories will now feature key race replays in their stories. “We have come to a financial agreement with Joe Hill of Roberts Communications,” said Curtin. “That allows Harnesslink to post race replays almost instantly once a race is official.” The Harnesslink staff is currently getting permission from racetracks throughout North America to allow the replays to be posted. “We already have ten racetracks in North America that have given Harnesslink permission,” Curtin said. “And we are confident that the majority of tracks will allow us to post their replays within our stories. We will not be posting all of the races at a track, but just the feature races from most racetracks. “Tonight (Saturday) at the Meadowlands,” Curtin said. “We will be showing the replay of each of the eight major stakes races on Harnesslink.com right after each race takes place.” The Meadowlands is featuring the Fall Final Four races for two-year-old’s and the TVG Series Finals for older trotters and pacers. “This is something that our readers have wanted for some time,” Curtin added. “It’s costing an arm and a leg, but will be well worth it as we continue to improve on Harnesslink being the only website in the industry that covers harness racing world-wide.” By Steve Wolf, for Harnesslink

The stars come out at Sweden’s Elitloppet weekend, a glittering two-day occasion packed with quality harness racing, featuring the best trotters in the world. It is also the showcase for the world’s best sires with no less than 80 international stallions having runners in the feature races on both days. Super sires Muscle Hill from the US with 14 representatives, and French trio  Love You (10),  Orlando Vici  (9) and  Ready Cash (8), are the big four when it comes to the feature events, highlighted by the international Elitloppet and Sweden Cup, run in same day heats and final over a mile. Muscle Hill, Orlando Vici and Ready Cash all have two representatives in the Elitloppet itself while Love You has one. French sire Orlando Vici is the only stallion to have two horses in both the Elitloppet and the Sweden Cup, the so-called Mini-Elitloppet, which is the highlight of the first day’s racing. Sweden’s home grown stallions Maharajah, (6), Raja Mirchi (5) and veteran From Above (4), who won the 2003 Elitloppet, also feature prominently, with Maharajah having a runner in both main events and both Raja Mirchi and From Above having two runners in the Sweden Cup, while Italian supersire and former Elitloppet champion Varenne  (5) also has two horses in the Sweden Cup. Veteran US-bred former Hambletonian winner Scarlet Knight (5) who was a heat winner and placed third twice in three Elitloppet attempts, has one horse in the Elitloppet and two in the Sweden Cup. The first day features the five divisions of the Sweden’s elite class trotters and the nation’s top mares division.  International trotters supplement the Lady Snarts race for mares, and Sweden’s biggest staying race, the Harper Hanovers where the trotters often go faster than the pacers do in the equivalent distance NZ Trotting Cup, while headlining day one is the Sweden Cup. Day two features international age groups racing, from three to five years old, an elite monte, and of course the big race itself, the Elitloppet, in two heats and a final over a mile.
