WASHINGTON, PA, July 15, 2016 -- Snowstorm Hanover matched the stake record when he stormed through the slop and scored in 1:56 in Friday's Pennsylvania Sires Stake action at The Meadows. The $192,004 event for 2-year-old colt and gelding trotters, known as the Hickory Pride, was contested over six divisions, with Affair Of Honor, Dover Dan, Don Dream, Lucky Matter and Moonshiner Hanover also taking splits. Trainer Chris Beaver (Lucky Matter, Moonshiner Hanover) enjoyed a stake double while Corey Callahan, trainer John Butenschoen and owners William Wiswell, Jean Goehlen and Eugene Schick (Affair Of Honor, Dover Dan) teamed for a pair of Hickory Pride victories. Snowstorm Hanover had little trouble with the off going, zipping to the front for Dave Palone and defeating Stealth Hanover by 3-1/2 lengths, with Andy M third. The time equaled Stormin Normand's Hickory Pride record established in 2011. Palone, who previously piloted the son of Muscle Massive-Snow Angel Hanover in two qualifying wins, said the big performance was no surprise to him. "He's acted like a really good colt all along," Palone said. "There's no bottom to him. Today over that racetrack, that's an incredible mile." Ron Burke trains Snowstorm Hanover for Burke Racing Stable, Frank Baldachino, Phillip Collura and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. A full brother to millionaire and top stallion Explosive Matter, Affair Of Honor raced greenly through the stretch but still held off Box Of Luck by a head in 1:58. Muscle Ville earned show. "He kind of ran out a little bit, looked a little bit lost, but he's starting to figure it out," said assistant trainer Tyler Butenschoen of the son of Cantab Hall-Fireworks Hanover, a $90,000 yearling acquisition. "He has a bunch of ability and speed, but he might be one who takes a little longer to put everything together." Dover Dan saved ground for most of the mile, then exploded out of the final turn and downed You Can't Habit by 1/2 length in 1:58.3. Muay Hanover completed the ticket. "I had to just get him through the turn at the half," Callahan said. "If I could have been first up, I think he'd have won a lot easier. But I didn't want to move with him in either turn. He's still trying to find his gait." In the $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace, Foiled Again, richest horse in harness racing history, showed he still has plenty of pop at age 12 when he cruised to a front-end victory in 1:51.4, 2-3/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Techtor Hanover. Aimo Hanover earned show. The Dragon Again-In A Safe Place gelding soared over $7.4 million in career earnings for trainer Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and JJK Stables. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

WASHINGTON, PA, July 13, 2016 -- Fashion Winner launched his career in fine fashion Wednesday at The Meadows when he rolled to a front-end victory in a stake-fastest 1:58.1 in a $120,000 Pennsylvania Stallion Series event. The stake was contested over six divisions, with Common Parlance, Limerence, Almirola Hanover, Simply Volo and Wiagram Hanover also taking splits. Dave Palone enjoyed a pair of stake wins (Fashion Winner, Common Parlance), as did trainer John Butenschoen (Simply Volo, Wiagram Hanover). Fashion Winner prepped for his career debut with a pair of winning qualifiers at Harrah's Philadelphia. His pari-mutuel bow was no more taxing, as he vaulted to the lead for Palone and never faced a serious challenge. Di Oggi rallied for second, 1-3/4 lengths back, while Michigan Hanover earned show. "He's a really, really nice horse," said Bennie Magliochetti, who owns and trains the Broadway Hall-Fun And Strokes gelding. "When Anthony Morgan qualified him, he told us how good the horse was. He won well within himself. His leg is a little crooked in front, but he's so nice. He only wears back boots -- that's it. No head poles, no nothin'." Common Parlance briefly was three wide while quarter-poling to the front, but that wasn't even a speed bump en route to his blowout victory in 1:59. Invested In Lindy was 9-3/4 lengths behind in second, with Always a Ladys Man third. "He has a great head on him, an extremely nice mouth," said Joseph Skowyra, who conditions the son of Crazed-Angevine for Wade Wyatt. "He's a gentleman through and through. We wanted to gauge his performance today, then make a decision about where he'll race next. We'd like to keep him in the stallion series, but it's a little enticing to go to the next step." Limerence looked so strong in his 6-1/2-length triumph in 1:59.4 that trainer/driver Ake Svanstedt already was talking about promoting him to tougher competition. "He has a good head -- that's important," he said. "He'll go to the Kindergarten and then the sires stakes." Brand New Key and Keep Truckin On completed the ticket. Svanstedt owns the son of Yankee Glide-Pleasing Lady with Christer Lovgren, Mal Burroughs, Janet Burroughs and Torbjorn Swahn. In the $22,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot, Classicality pounced on the tiring leaders and pulled off a 19-1 upset for Brian Zendt and owner/trainer Lisa Dunn in 1:53.1. Tall Cotton was second, 3-1/4 lengths in arrears, with See The Wind third. The 6-year-old Classic Photo-Penn Worthy Lane gelding now boasts $319,132 in career earnings. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday, when the card features the Hickory Pride, a $192,004 PA Sires Stake for freshman colt and gelding trotters.

WASHINGTON, PA, July 11, 2016 -- Glitter, who survived a shipping misadventure en route to The Meadows, sparkled in a Pennsylvania Stallion Series event, capturing her division in a stake-fastest 1:57.3. Monday's $120,000 event for freshman filly trotters was contested over six divisions, with Electric Lemonade, Perfect Lady, It's Hallright, One Class Act and Donna Elvira also taking $20,000 splits. Corey Callahan won two divisions (Donna Elvira, It's Hallright) while Dave Palone and trainer Jimmy Takter teamed for another pair (Electric Lemonade, Perfect Lady). Winning driver Aaron Merriman said Glitter managed to climb over a stall partition in the trailer on her trip to The Meadows but emerged from it little worse for wear. "Her legs got a couple scrapes, but the vet checked her and said, go ahead and race her," Merriman indicated. "She won very easy, very professionally. That's as nice a race as you could ask of a 2-year-old." Glitter made it look easy for owner/trainer Steve Bauder, as the daughter of Glidemaster-Luscious Glitter cruised up first over and won handily, defeating Trixie Dust by 4 lengths. Weekend Wit Chucky finished third. Donna Elvira saved ground until the final turn, when Callahan cut her loose. She zipped by the leader, All Set Lets Go, downing her by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:58.3, with Keystone Angel third. "I really liked her the last time I raced her at Pocono," Callahan said. "She was a little bumpy -- she has some lameness issues. But she has a great attitude, and she tries hard." Jenny Melander trains Donna Elvira, a daughter of Yankee Glide-Ashley's Carousel, for Steve Organ. In her career debut, Electric Lemonade had a sizable lead on the field, with only one rival cutting into her margin. But there was a catch. The horse on the move was the first-timer Broadway Photo, a full sister to millionaire Action-Broadway, the 2011 Mare Trotter of the Year. "I was well aware who was chasing me," Palone said. "I knew I had two handfuls of trot. I never really took her plugs out. I just wanted to get her over this racetrack, her first time over it. She was well within herself. Looks like she'll graduate to the sires stakes, I would guess." Electric Lemonade prevailed in 1:59.4, 3/4 lengths better than Broadway Photo. Neptune's Daughter completed the ticket. Christina Takter, John Fielding, Herb Liverman and Jim Fielding campaign Electric Lemonade, a daughter of Cantab Hall-Birthright. Tony Hall piloted three winners on the 14-race card. Tuesday's program at The Meadows features the Meadow Gladys, a $195,560 PA Sires Stake for freshman filly trotters. First post is 1 PM. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

WASHINGTON, PA, July 5, 2016 -- Refreshed by a 30.1 second-quarter breather, Unefoisdansmavie easily thwarted a pair of challengers and scored a front-end victory in Tuesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Bessie took the first shot at Unefoisdansmavie, a first-over bid that stalled near the three-quarters. Princess Pablano unleashed a more serious threat when she moved three wide down the backside and loomed large in the lane. But Unefoisdansmavie responded to Dave Palone's urging and held off Princess Pablano by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:54.4 on a sloppy surface, with Whata Donato third. Ron Burke trains Unefoisdansmavie, a 9-year-old daughter of Revenue S-Peace To The World who soared over $600,000 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt III. Elsewhere on Tuesday's card, Rose Run Slider broke his maiden in 1:57, fastest mile this year by a freshman colt trotter on a five-eighths-mile track. Brian Zendt piloted for trainer Bill Zendt, who owns the son of Western Ideal-Alcyon Semalu with Shanamphilaniklou, Inc. Mike Wilder collected three wins on the 14-race card.

WASHINGTON, PA, July 2, 2016 -- Last by 4-1/2 lengths into the final turn and finding no seam available, Easy Again swung wide and roared through the lane to score his second straight win in Saturday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. Unlocked, the even-money favorite, appeared comfortable on the lead and headed to victory when Dave Palone opened the throttle on Easy Again. The 7-year-old Dragon Again-Kuklapanandollie gelding triumphed in 1:51.3, downing Unlocked by a head, with Techtor Hanover third. Ron Burke trains Easy Again, who now boasts career earnings of $873,018, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, M1 Stable and Panhellenic Stable. It was one of four wins for Palone on the 13-race card. Live racing at The Meadows resumes with a special July 4 card, first post 5 PM. Highlighting the program are a pair of total-pool guarantees -- $15,000 for the Pick 5, $5,000 for the Pick 4. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

WASHINGTON, PA, June 25, 2016 -- Easy Again quarter-poled to the front and jogged to a persuasive harness racing victory in 1:50.3 in Saturday's $13,500 Winners Over $10,000 Life Pace at The Meadows. With Dave Palone at the helm, Easy Again discouraged any challengers by reeling off four sub-28 quarters. The 7-year-old Dragon Again-Kuklapanandollie ridgling defeated the pocket-sitting Techtor Hanover by 2-1/4 lengths while Brooklyn Flight rallied for show. Ron Burke trains Easy Again, who extended his career bankroll to $864,018, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, M1 Stable and Panhellenic Stable. Elsewhere on Saturday's card, America's Fleet broke his maiden at first asking in 1:56, fastest this year by a 2-year-old gelding pacer on a five-eighths-mile track. Tony Hall drove for trainer Randy Bendis, who owns the son of American Ideal-Wishfora Fullhouse with Tom Pollack and Reed Broadway. Hall, Bendis and Palone each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race program. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

WASHINGTON, PA, June 18, 2016 -- Winless in four previous starts this year, Homicide Hunter regained his touch Saturday at The Meadows when he shot the Lightning Lane to capture the $54,000 Meadows Maturity Trot for harness racing stallions and geldings 4 and up in 1:51.4, fastest ever by a 4-year-old gelding at The Meadows. The time eclipsed the mark of 1:52.2 established by Rembrandt Spur in 2010 and is only a tick off the track's all-age trotting record. Homicide Hunter had a monster year last year at 3, winning 16 of 18 starts and $475,677. In his 2016 outings before Saturday, however, the son of Mr Cantab-Evening Prayer was no better than third. Winning driver Dave Palone, who also was named on Il Sogno Dream and Wind Of The North in the Meadows Maturity, selected Homicide Hunter after consulting with trainer Chris Oakes. "Chris said, 'Before you do anything, you better watch the replay of last week,'" Palone said. "He was super last week and finished up real strong. Chris thought if I got him into the race, he was the best horse, and he was." Homicide Hunter stalked Muscle Up The Goal from the pocket while Il Sogno Dream, stablemate of Muscle Up The Goal, attacked outside. Palone indicated that wrangling the winner into the Lightning Lane wasn't as easy as it looked. "It's tough to get enough momentum, especially with a trotter, and he was running out a little bit," Palone said. "I had to kind of stuff him in there and make him go at the same time. He finished up very strong." Homicide Hunter downed Il Sogno Dream by 1-1/2 lengths while Muscle Up The Goal saved show. Michelle Crawford and Albert Crawford campaign Homicide Hunter, who soared over $600,000 in career earnings. Elsewhere on Saturday's card, the pocket-sitting Lady's Dude, using Lasix for the first time, outkicked the leader, Tamarind, to defeat him by a nose in 1:53.3 for Palone, trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Johnny Yoder. Monte Christo Spur rallied for show. The 5-year-old Victory Sam-Lady's Star gelding extended his lifetime bankroll to $316,533. Tony Hall and Palone each collected four wins on the 13-race program while Brian Zendt and trainer Randy Bendis each enjoyed a triple. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

WASHINGTON, PA, June 4, 2016 -- Adrian Hanover thwarted the determined challenge of Big Top Hanover and went on to score in a career-best 1:49.4 in Saturday's $162,110 Pennsylvania Sires Stake for harness racing 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers at The Meadows. The time matched the fastest this year by a 3-year-old gelding on a five-eighths-mile track. Another Daily Copy pulled off a 20-1 upset in the other division of the stake known as the Bye Bye Byrd. Adrian Hanover quarter-poled to the lead for Dave Palone -- just where Chris Oakes, who trains Adrian Hanover for John Craig, didn't want him. "I talked to Chris five minutes before the race," Palone indicated, "and Chris said, 'I wouldn't put him on the lead.' But I ended up getting away third, and I thought my best shot was to control it." When the well meant Big Top Hanover and Yannick Gingras came after him, the son of Somebeachsomewhere-Artaffection turned him back and defeated him by 3-1/2 lengths, with Manhattan Beach third. "He really didn't mind the pressure," Palone said. "He's lazy, and as soon as Yannick came to him, it helped my cause. He got back up in the bit and paced home real strong." Another Daily Copy, who had been racing almost exclusively on the front end of late, found the pocket trip Tony Hall gave him to his liking. He zipped by the leader, 4-5 favorite Check Six, in the stretch and downed him by a neck in 1:50, a lifetime mark. JK Will Power earned show. With the win, Another Daily Copy soared over $100,000 in career earnings. "He had a little breather today," said Nicholas DeVita, who conditions the homebred son of Somebeachsomewhere-Court Stenographer for owner/breeder Carl Sackheim. "Plus he had a nice horse doing all the hard work for him. At 2 he had allergies and tying-up problems, but he got better as he matured. He's staked to everything, so we'll play it by ear." $100,000 PA Sires Stake, 3-Year-Old Colt & Gelding Pacers In Saturday's co-feature, Power Of A Cruiser equaled the stake record of 1:50.3 with a front-end triumph from post 8. Also taking $20,000 splits were Fashion Bythebeach, Good Living, Don McWhite and Rip This Joint. Tim Tetrick (Power Of A Cruiser, Fashion Bythebeach, Good Living) and Hall (Don McWhite, Rip This Joint) swept the five divisions. Despite the unfavorable post, Power Of A Cruiser, a Yankee Cruiser-Power Of Thunder gelding, opened a commanding lead for Tetrick, trainer Les Givens and owner/breeder Michael Horsey, defeating the first-over Duke Of Delray by 4-1/2 lengths. McDave was third. "He's been showing speed," Tetrick said. "When I got to cut it, he raced a really good mile." Fashion Bythebeach also scored on the front end, holding off JJ Flynn by a neck in 1:52. Hollyrock Heyden completed the ticket. "He has extreme speed, but his head's not where it should be," said Vince Copeland, who trains the Somebeachsomewhere-Don'tknocktherock gelding, a $27,000 yearling acquisition, for David D. Miller. "He has a bit of an attitude. He wanted to kick Tim out of the bike during the post parade -- he hadn't tried that with me. If I can put a flip-up bridle where he can see horses coming at him, I think he'll be a lot better." The Cancelliere brothers, John and Tom, have made big noise at many yearling auctions, but only once have they signed the ticket for a weanling, a Western Ideal-Artomatic brother to their millionaire performer Western Shore. "We gave $14,500 for him," Tom Cancelliere said. "We threw him out in the field for a year and started breaking him with the other ones last year. He's very green. On the front end today, he was on and off the gas, on and off the gas. He doesn't realize that he just has to go. He'll go to the sires stakes next." That youngster, named Good Living, justified the brothers' patience Saturday when he scored on the lead in a career-fastest 1:51.1. Yankee Artillery was second, 2 lengths in arrears, with Blake North third. Change of Plans for Foiled Again Elsewhere on the program, the $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace marked a homecoming for Foiled Again, harness racing's all-time richest pacer with more than $7.3 on his card. The gallant 12-year-old gelding hadn't raced at The Meadows, the home track of his connections, in about three years. But his rivals spoiled the party, parking him for nearly three-eighths before he reached the front. Unlocked nosed out Dapper Dude for the win in 1:51.1, with Foiled Again a neck back in third. Now winless in nine outings this year, Foiled Again had been targeting the Roll With Joe at Tioga Downs, but Saturday's race caused trainer Ron Burke to modify those plans. "I thought he was all right," Burke said. "We may have to change his whole racing style. He might have to become a closer because he doesn't have quite the quick speed he used to have, and he gets himself in bad spots . . . He'll continue to race. I talked with my partners, and we're leaning to keeping him here (The Meadows) and race him here another start or two until I see if I can get him to pick it up a little bit."

WASHINGTON, PA, May 30, 2016 -- Medusa zipped to the front from post 6, held off the late charge of Set Me Up and scored in 1:50 -- fastest ever by an older mare at The Meadows -- in Monday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace. Medusa suffered narrow losses in her two most recent outings when she stalked the leader from the pocket and couldn't find the Lightning Lane soon enough. On Monday, Tony Hall and the 5-year-old daughter of Better's Delight-Mythical assured that wouldn't happen again when they took control and downed the pocket-sitting Set Me Up by a neck. Spreester was third. The time erased the previous mark of 1:50.2 held jointly by Betterluvnexttime and Continual Velocity. Randy Bendis trains Medusa, who now boasts $296,442 in lifetime earnings, and owns with Tom Pollock. Dave Palone piloted three winners on the 15-race card. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows          

Set Me Up followed live cover into the final turn, then blazed through the lane to capture Monday's $22,500 harness racing filly & mare Preferred Handicap Pace -- her second straight victory -- at The Meadows. A longtime top performer at The Meadows, Set Me Up dropped into a conditioned event to collect last week's win. She was sharp in the top distaff pace Monday, following the first-over cover of Coffee Addict before Dave Palone sent her wide through the stretch. She prevailed in 1:51.4, edging the rallying Spreester by a nose, while Medusa shot the Lightning Lane for show. Ron Burke trains Set Me Up, a 7-year-old daughter of Shark Gesture-Moccasin Flight who now boasts $435,255 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

More Dragon survived a demanding first quarter and rolled on to a convincing victory in Saturday's $32,500 championship of the Atta Boy Dan Pace for harness racing 3-year-old colts and geldings at The Meadows. More Dragon was parked throughout a 27.2 opening panel before clearing to the lead. Winning driver Dave Palone said he wasn't overly concerned about the potential impact of that swift quarter. "We were just looking for everybody to get settled," Palone said. "It was just a matter of everybody finding a spot and then moving him to the front. He responded really strong through the wire." Once on top, More Dragon easily parried the first-over thrust of Trelane to score in 1:54.1, 2-1/2 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Arthur Pendragon. Rip This Joint was third. Palone indicated More Dragon, who's fresh enough with only three starts this year, may turn out to be a top performer. "I think he's a pretty good colt," Palone said. "I know they'll be out there in 1:49 miles, but he's been well within himself. I've seen these kinds of horses move to other tracks and shade 1:50. He has a terrific attitude. The only knock on him is he's a little fella, but he takes great big steps, and he has a good way of doing it." Ron Burke trains More Dragon, a Dragon Again-Liscaramore gelding, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Knox Services and David Wills. In the $22,500 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace, Dew N Doughnuts was able to slip by three horses in an early jackpot and prevail in 1:52.2. The trouble began when both Seventh Secret and Unlocked broke stride while trying for the lead, placing Sam Hill in a precarious position behind them. Aaron Merriman kept Sam Hill clear of the rest of the field, enabling Dew N Doughnuts and Tony Hall to ease through safely along the pylons. The 6-year-old son of Real Desire-Artbitration defeated the rallying Easy Again by a length, with the first-over Cammikey third. Norm Parker conditions Dew N Doughnuts, who now boasts $314,274 in lifetime earnings, for Tom Klosky, Jr. Palone piloted five winners and Mike Wilder four on the 15-race card.

He demonstrated that once again in Saturday's harness racing $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows when, for the fourth consecutive start, he was parked in a sub-27 opening quarter while trying for the lead. He prevailed easily Saturday, just as he did the previous three races, and stretched his overall winning streak to seven. Once the 4-year-old Real Desire-Im All A Roan gelding settled on the front for Dave Palone, he repelled the first-over challenge of Dew N Doughnuts and scored in 1:51, 1-3/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Unlocked.
