Trainer Virgil Morgan Jr. and partner Carl Howard collared the winner from the second preliminary leg and the eight-year-old Cambest gelding paid immediate dividends, going wire to wire to top Rusty's No Fool (Greg Grismore) and Littlebitaclass (Andy Shetler). Dabestleaderever hasn't missed the board in four starts since coming to Miami Valley, including back to back wins. A $10,000 championship in the "Claim To Fame" series for $5000 claiming mares was also decided with Bittersweet Best (Kyle Ater) benefitting from a perfect second-over trip to top Luna Hanover (Kayne Kauffman) and Debi's Sign (Josh Sutton) in 1:56.2. The victory pushed the six-year-old Pro Bono Best mare over the $100,000 earnings plateau for owners Allen and Ira Kaplan and trainer Dan Ater. Noble's winners were Earls Dixie Darlin, Wounded Warrior, Miss Suggs, Custom Made, Milliron Pete, Mama Made Me Blue and Dabestleaderever. Noble's seven win day secured his second place standing in the local driver's dash contest. The 32-year-old former national dash champion follows only defending Miami Valley champion Kayne Kauffman, who scored a driving triple on Saturday night. Gregg Keidel

It was one of three driving wins on the program for Dan Noble, who split rivals in the stretch to top Rescue Team (Chris Page), who was closing fast on the outside, and pacesetter Stucklikeglue (Greg Grismore) who finished a close-up third. It was the 34th lifetime victory from 168 starts for the eight-year-old Park Place mare leased by Merl P'pool and trained by Kathy Millman. Metro Shopping (Tyler Smith) matched Rev Me Up's 1:53.2 winning time in gate-to-wire fashion a race later in an $11,000 conditioned event.

DAYTON, OH. - Celebrity Hercules, a well-traveled eight-year-old son of Kadabra, visited Hollywood Dayton Raceway for the first time on Saturday night (December 20) and left with a hard-fought 'nose' victory in the weekly $10,000 Open Trot. With the narrow victory Celebrity Hercules inched closer to the half-million dollar earnings plateau. He now has 37 lifetime wins in 141 tries and has amassed $492,399 in winnings. The winner has won multiple races in Illinois, Indiana and Minnesota in recent years and now adds Ohio to his list of places where he has beat the best. This victory did not come easy, however, as Celebrity Hercules got away seventh in the nine-horse field for driver Dan Noble, then moved into a position third in the outer flow during the middle half-mile. At the three-quarters, Noble flipped his charge three-wide and he eventually ground down Mystical Dew (Tyler Smith), who had raced first-over from the outside post position the entire mile, in the final stride. Favored Rehab Mountain (Brad Hanners) put the field through relatively comfortable fractions of :27, :57 and 1:26 before yielding in deep stretch and finishing third in the 1:55.3 mile.

Betit To Getit (Kyle Ater) put up a good fight in the stretch but ended up one-half length short. Stucklikeglue (Greg Grismore) also was lapped on at the wire, just another neck behind in third. Driver Jason Brewer, who was enjoying an outstanding inaugural season at Dayton, broke his arm in a morning training accident at his nearby farm and is likely out of action through the end of the meet on December 27. The 36-year-old reinsman is currently fifth in the dash standings with 54 wins during the first 48 nights. Brewer's father Jeff is ranked second in the trainer's standings with 29 wins and an impressive .400 UTRS average during the current Dayton stand. From the press box at Dayton Raceway

Driver Dan Noble sat chilly with the four-year-old gelding while Baby Blaze set speedy early fractions of :27.2, :56.2 and 1:25, then he swept four-wide around the final bend and through the stretch to leave the field in his wake, stopping the timer in 1:55.

DAYTON, OH. - Despite an outside post position Jailhouse Hooch prevailed in the $8000 championship of the Dayton Raceway "Stars of the Future" mini-series for green trotters on Thursday night. Driver Dan Noble left strongly from the eight post and secured a two-hole trip through the first five-eighths of the mile. Approaching three-quarters he pulled the pocket to challenge pacesetter Autumn Estelle (Hugh Beatty), who ultimately faded to a fourth place finish. Elimination heat winner Nanohio (Tom Moore Jr.) was the first to come calling once Jailhouse Hooch had secured the lead, followed by betting favorite Hey Pancho (Chris Page). The threesome dueled bravely through the stretch before Noble's steed pulled away to a one-length margin in 1:59.3 at the wire. Nanohio held for second with Hey Pancho just another half-length back to garner the show dough. The elimination and final victories were the first two of the five-year-old lightly raced son of Jailhouse Jesse's career. He is owned by Cynthia and Nancy Zirkle and trained by David Myers.

DAYTON, OH. - The best older Ohio-sired harness racing mares converged on Hollywood Dayton Raceway on Friday night to contest a pair of $50,000 state championship races, one for each gait. Favorites captured each division as world champion Victory Is Coming (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) won the distaff trot; and Igotafeelinfran (Dan Noble) proved best in the pace. Victory Is Coming, who established a world record on August 22 with a 1:51 triumph against open company at Scioto Downs, left alertly from an outside post position for Wrenn, despite the fact she has been racing from off the pace in her recent starts. The seven-year-old daughter of Victory Sam cleared to the lead just before the :27.2 opening panel then eased up on the throttle through a middle half-mile in :59 seconds. She then cruised home in 1:55.4, despite strong headwinds in the stretch, for an easy three-length win. Easy Strength (Josh Sutton) raced gamely to finish second with Jesse's Messenger (Dan Noble) garnering the show dough. Victory Is Coming now has 48 career victories and has earned $546,365 for owners John and Betty Shaw. Ammon Hershberger has trained the classy lass over the past couple years. Igotafeelinfran, who prepped with a pair of impressive wins in Dayton Raceway's first two Fillies & Mares Opens, ran her local win streak to three with a 1:55 tally over Crosswind Colleen (Jason Brewer) and So Jazzy (Chris Page). Noble was content to sit fourth with the odds-on favorite until the :56.3 halfway station, then launched a first-over bid through the third quarter reached in 1:25.1. Once clear of pacesetter So Jazzy, Igotafeelinfran got a scare from Crosswind Colleen who was on even terms with the winner before breaking stride briefly in mid-stretch. Trainer Jim Dailey's wife Kimberly owns the four-year-old Feelin Friskie mare in partnership with Jerry Zosel and Kathy Ratcliff. She has 17 wins and $369,871 in earnings in her first three years of racing. Hollywood Dayton Raceway will present another pair of $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes championship races for older male pacers and trotters on Saturday night. First race post time is 6:35 with the finals slated as races 6 and 10 on the 14-race program. From the press box at Dayton Racway

Creatine captured the $166,300 American National Aged Trot in a new track record time of 1:51.3 with harness racing driver Dan Noble at the lines. The previous time of 1:51.4 was set by Sand Vic in 2006. "Late in the stretch I went up in the inside and was able to get through," said Noble. "I was in the two-hole for nearly all of the mile and was in trouble late, I was lucky to get through."   Archangel (Yannick Gingras) took the lead quickly from post one, with Creatine taking advantage of post two and following closely on his heels to the :27 first quarter. Uncle Peter (David Miller) and Market Share (Tim Tetrick) were in close pursuit with positions unchanged though the :55.1 half. Market Share was the first to pull, making his way slowly up to challenge the leaders to the 1:23 three-quarter marker. In the lane, Creatine finally shook loose behind Archangel and charged through the inside. Wishing Stone (Matt Kakaley) came flying late on the outside to get up for second, while Archangel held on for third   When the numbers were posted, however, Creatine's began flashing and it was nearly a ten-minute wait before judged determined that the son of Andover Hall-Berry Nice Muscles-Muscles Yankee had only touched, but not gone inside the pylons.   "I saw the number flashing there and was worried, but still thought the horse raced great," said trainer Bob Stewart. "It was a similar trip as the one we got behind Spider Blue Chip last year when we finished second. It worked out better this year."   The 4-year-old stallion is owned by Diamond Creek Racing of Wellsville, PA and now has $322,571 in seasonal earnings from three wins, three seconds and one third in 13 starts. Lifetime, he's amassed 14 wins, nine seconds and three thirds in 37 trips postward, with $1,189,730.   Creatine is the second foal out of his dam and has half-siblings in Mister Anson (by Conway Hall) 2, 2:00.4h ($158,011) and Strawbery Wine (by Kadabra) 4, 1:56f ($101,285).

Dayton, OH --- Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway, Ohio’s newest harness track, opened Friday evening (Oct. 3) with a packed house of horseplayers and curiosity seekers. Owned by Penn National Gaming Inc., Dayton Raceway came about when the company was permitted to move its Raceway Park license from Toledo about 150 miles south. Video lottery terminals began operating at Dayton in September. “We’re thrilled to be here,” Gary DeWitt, general manager of the facility, said during opening ceremonies. “It has been quite a journey. This is the beginning of another entertainment option in Dayton with live harness racing. We think it’s the nicest racing facility in the state of Ohio.” The racing side of the project was overseen by Mark Loewe, vice president of Ohio racing operations for PNGI. With the opening of Dayton, all four Ohio harness tracks now have VLTs and other amenities. “We’re really happy with it,” PNGI vice president of racing Chris McErlean said. “Being involved in this project from the ground up has been fun. Mark did a great job. It may be a little tight here tonight, but I think the facility is the right size for this market.” With at least 2,500 people on the racing side and regular traffic coming and going from the gaming floor, it was pretty tight on opening night. Lines were long at betting windows and concession stands. The first race at Dayton, which has a well-lit five-eighths-mile racing surface, was won by Ella V Horse, owned by Mitchell Standardbreds of Florida, trained by Travion Jones, and driven by Dan Noble, a native of the area. The 7-year-oldRoyal Mattjesty mare won a conditioned pace for fillies and mares in 1:54.3 for one mile on a fast track. Igottafeelinfran (Noble) captured the $12,000 Mares Open Pace with a strong last quarter brush to collar pacesetter Sectionline Yankee (Greg Grismore). Betit To Getit (Jason Brewer) finished third in the 1:55.3 mile. The winner is a 4-year-old Ohio-sired daughter of Feelin Friskie owned by Harold Lee and Harold Bauder in partnership with Michael Dixon. Jim Dailey trains the lifetime winner of $338,871. The ship-in paddock at Dayton has gotten high marks from horsemen and others, including Ohio State Racing Commission chairman Robert Schmitz, who was on hand for the opener. “Any racetrack I go to, the paddock is the first place I start out,” Schmitz said. “This paddock was built to a T. As for the rest of the facility, we’ll see how the sight lines are, but I think they did an excellent job. I’m excited about the Dayton area having a racetrack, and I think there is enough interest by folks around here to rekindle harness racing.” Schmitz said when Ohio Gov. John Kasich and the General Assembly approved racetrack VLTs, growth in the agriculture sector was a main driver. “It has come to fruition,” he said. The inaugural Dayton meet runs through Dec. 27, with racing five nights a week (Mondays and Wednesdays through Saturdays) for most of the meet. First post time is 6:35 p.m. By Tom LaMarra, for the USTA    

Tall Cotton sets a new track record of 1:53.2 for a harness racing aged gelded trotter at Scioto Downs. The previous record of 1:54 was held by JJ Hall and War Cry Hall. The 8-year old son of Revenue S out of B Cor Peatra is trained by Ron Burke who also owns along with Weaver Bruscemi, Ed Gold and Howard Taylor. Tall Cotton started from post four in the field of eight condition trotters. Chris Page had the lines and chased after the $18,000 purse. Page left hard for command and trotted an opening quarter in :27.3. Dan Noble and Fusion Man followed suit and were able to drop in second. The quick pace continued on to the half clocked in :55.4. Boy Meets Girl K and Randy Tharps started their first up rally and pushed the pace down to three quarters in 1:24.4. Fusion Man sat the pocket until wheeling in mid stretch to give his bid, but would be just a head shy. Final Breath and Hugh Beatty were a closing third. She's Shocking sets a new career best of 1:51 in the $25,000 Filly and Mare Open Pace. The 5-year old mare by Electric Yankee out of Notorious One is conditioned by Scott Mogan who partially owns with Diamond Chip Stable and Charles Guiler. Kayne Kauffman had the assignment from post six in the full field of nine, but that didn't deter him from leaving. She's Shocking left like a rocket along with heavy favorite, Betterluvnexttime who cleared to the opening quarter in :26.2 and provided a perfect pocket trip to She's Shocking. The pace didn't slow much as they paced to the half in :54.4. Sissy Bar and Dan Noble started their first over bid and gave cover to a second over Sweetheart Dance. Sissy Bar applied pressure as they paced down to three quarters in 1:22.3. This left Kauffman licking his chops as they battled until the top of stretch. She's Shocking waited for room from a tiring Sissy Bar to pull out and pace a head clear of Betterluvnexttime. Jim Pantaleano and Sweetheart Dance came on for third.

He was almost home free, but Soul Train and Ryan Stahl were able to get up in time by a mere nose. Master Mighty made a break as they crossed the wire, placing him third behind Kurt Sugg's Bradymeister.   I Know My Chip scores in his $40,000 division of Ohio Sires Stakes in a lifetime best, 2:00.2. Jim Dailey trains the 2-year old gelded son of Deep Chip out of Madeline's Crown for owner Kim Dailey. Jason Brewer had the assignment from post four in the field eight and was the better's choice at 3-5.   Brewer let colt trot when the starter said go and grabbed the top before the quarter that was trotted in :29.4. They had company from an outside leaver, Chips A Million and Chris Page. They let the pair go before tripping by the half that was trotted in :59.4. Page and Brewer performed the "give and go" and I Know My Chip regained command before the three quarters that clicked in 1:30.4.   I Know My Chip kicked 3 ½-lengths clear of a closing Ohio Chipster and Chips A Million held on for third.   Western Coby lit up the tote board with his 1:56.2 performance in a division of the 2-year old colt pace.   Western Coby is a gelded son by Western Spirit out of Cole By A Knows. He's trained by Ron Wagner who partially owns with Larry Acker and Dean Davis. Wyatt Irvine had the lines from post nine in field of nine and went off at odds of 55-1.   Irvine was content to take back and watch the action from eighth while Cornerback and Ronnie Wrenn Jr.pressed out for command. Ollie Pop clocked the opening quarter in :28.1 before settling for a pocket trip behind Cornerback. Wrenn tripped the half timer in :57.3.   It wasn't until the three quarters that was paced in 1:27 that Irvine gave Western Coby open road, three wide to pass them all in a final quarter he paced in :28.2. Indian Spirit and Kyle Ater also closed well for second and Ollie Pop completed the trifecta. Neely's Messenger extended his win streak to five with his $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes win in 1:59.2.   Marty Wollam trains and drives the 2-year colt by Neely Dunn out of Fun Message for Dale and Julie Sweet. They started from post two in the field of eight and were the slight second choice behind Kick A Lot who set the fractions of :28.3, :59.3 and 1:29.3.   Wollam sat back in third and watched the action before tipping his colt three wide in the stretch to win by a half length over Chips Starr and Super Sheff Frosty. Kick A Lot made a costly, quick break in stride causing him to go inside the pylons and to be disqualified and placed last.   Diamondkeeper upsets in his division Ohio Sires Stakes in 1:53.2. The 3-year old gelded son of Pine Valley out of Almahurst Joy is conditioned by Ron Burke for the connections of Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, Frank Baldachino and Lawrence Karr.   The undefeated, heavy favorite, Friskie Adam pushed the gate away and was parked to the opening quarter in :26.3.

Josh Sutton had the lines and pushed the gate away and cleared to the top before the quarter that was clocked in :28.1, Sutton never looked back.   The heavy favorite, Rompaway Galaxy got away an early fourth and was content to watch the action as they hit the half in :57.3, but was underway by the three quarters that was stopped in 1:26.2. Micallef couldn't close the gap on Lady's Dude and had to settle for second and Can'tcutthatchip was third.   Chief Talkalot pulls off a gutsy performance in the final division of Ohio Sires Stakes for 2-year old colt pacers in 1:55.
