WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 10, 2017 -- Tessa Seelster quarter-poled to the top and cruised home from there, capturing Tuesday's $20,000 harness racing filly & mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace in a sharp 1:51.3. Tessa Seelster was away second for Dave Palone but sat only briefly behind Spreester before powering to the top. The 5-year-old daughter of Shadow Play-Titania Seelster drew off late, downing Spreester by 3 lengths, while Southwind Roulette shot the Lightning Lane for show. Ron Burke trains Tessa Seelster, who soared over $500,000 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jonathan Newman.

WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 27, 2017 -- While one occasionally sees a Standardbred race without shoes, the barefoot look may become a harness racing trend following the success of Temple Ruins and Sianna Hanover in Wednesday's $93,298 Keystone Classic at The Meadows. Trainer Ron Burke removed their shoes for the stake, and each of the 3-year-old filly trotters responded with a victory for Dave Palone. In fact, Temple Ruins blazed home in 1:53.3 to equal Classic Martine's stake record. In the third division, Cantabmymoney blew up the tote board when she upset at 30-1. Temple Ruins, who had never raced sans shoes before, quarter-poled to the front and jogged home, downing the first-over Mimosa Hanover by 7-1/4 lengths, with Kannections Honey third. "I didn't have to pull the earplugs -- she was great today," Palone said. "Ronnie made a great move pulling her shoes -- she loved the racetrack. It's very forgiving and a little deep today. Just when you think Ronnie's out of moves, he comes up with another one." Burke Racing Stable, Michelle Yanek, Paul Treiber and Weaver Bruscemi LLC campaign the daughter of Donato Hanover-Temple Of Heaven, who extended her career bankroll to $273,561. Unlike her stablemate, Sianna Hanover had competed without shoes, most recently at the Meadowlands in August. Burke indicated he had been waiting for the right opportunity to try her shoeless again. "The weather's better now. The tracks are deeper. They have more cushion, so her feet will hold up better," Burke said. "When she races barefoot, she's a different-gaited horse. Her gait drops lower, she doesn't interfere, and she trots better. I think I'll race her right back at Lexington on Sunday. She can race barefoot there for sure, and I think she'll really pick up on that track." In the Keystone Classic, Sianna Hanover enjoyed a pocket trip, then shot the Lightning Lane to down Rosesareexplosive by 3/4 lengths in a career-best 1:55.1. Early leader Broadway Concert completed the ticket. The daughter of Donato Hanover-Simplicity now has banked $183,038 for Burke Racing Stable, Our Horse Cents Stables and J&T Silva Stables. Seventh by 8 lengths at the three-quarters, Cantabmymoney swung wide through the stretch for Tony Hall and defeated Vodka N Lindy by a neck in 1:55.3, with Dressed To Impress third. Bob Key bred and owns the daughter of Cantab Hall-Missy Money Bags, who was fourth in last week's Buckette at Delaware. "It was the same kind of trip she had at Delaware, but they were sprinting there so it didn't look as good," winning trainer Norm Parker said. "This was a very tough filly to get to the races, but Mr. Key was patient with her. The speed is there, but she's a temperamental filly who might make a break at any time." Mike Wilder piloted five winners -- he swept races 5-8 and got a dead-heat victory in race 9 -- while Palone enjoyed a four-bagger on the 12-race card. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features the season's final Keystone Classic, a $68,300 event for 3-year-old filly pacers. First post is 1:05 PM.

WASHINGTON, PA, July 28, 2017 -- Owner Brian Gillespie dearly wanted to compete in the 2016 Edward M. Ryan, an Arden Downs Grand Circuit stake for freshman colt and gelding trotters named for Gillespie's late grandfather, a former owner of The Meadows who also was a generous philanthropist and accomplished horseman. Alas, Gillespie lacked a suitable horse. But he had good friends in Brocious Racing Stable and trainer Robert Rougeaux III, who, on the eve of the Ryan, offered Gillespie's Lone Wolf Stable a piece of their horse, Box Of Luck. That colt made Ryan-Gillespie family history when he captured a Ryan split. Fast forward a year. The Ryan is fast approaching, and Gillespie has no candidate for it. Brocious and Rougeaux step up again, selling Lone Wolf an interest in Tymal Advocate. On Friday at The Meadows, it was déjà vu all over again as Tymal Advocate won a Ryan division. The prospects for a Tymal Advocate victory were uncertain at best; he came into the Ryan a five-race maiden and a handful. "We contacted Brian and offered him a little piece because we know how that is with family," Rougeaux said of the Donato Hanover-Tymal Abracadabra gelding. "You want a shot to win a race named after your grandfather. But this horse is a different bird -- he's wired hot. If you can keep him pointed north, he's okay. We keep him off the track. We jog him down the roads, through the creeks, and he loves it." In the Ryan, Tymal Advocate made a decisive quarter-pole move in the slop for Brian Zendt and drew away to down Cfour Po by 4 lengths, with Raising Kerckhaert third. What A Hunk and Canale Hanover also took divisions of the $49,564 Ryan. What A Hunk moved three wide down the backside to triumph in 1:59.3 for Dave Palone, trainer Bill Daugherty, Jr. and owner Susan Daugherty. Early leader Conservator finished second, 4-1/2 lengths back, while Mister Ruff earned show. Daugherty, a successful trainer at Pennsylvania's raceways and fairs, is known for plucking bargains at auctions and developing them into profitable propositions. With What A Hunk, he changed his MO. "Things are getting tougher -- I gave $22,000 for him," he said. ""I gave $27,000 for a yearling once. I'm spending a little money; I don't like to. Everybody wants to buy them for $4,000, but that doesn't always happen." $49,230 Arden Downs -- 2-Year-Old Filly Trotters Friday's Adios Eve card also featured the Judge Joe McGraw, a $49,230 Arden Downs Grand Circuit stake for freshman filly trotters, with Zoe Bi, Explosive G and Fish Is Fish winning the divisions. Zoe Bi was fastest, scoring in 1:57.4 after being parked the first three-eighths, but she had to survive a bout of what winning driver Aaron Merriman called "crankiness." "I could have got her right out of there; I was just waiting," Merriman said. "She was just extremely cranky today, and I didn't want to gear her up early. She warmed up cranky. She was lunging in the post parade, wouldn't turn. But her talent definitely overrides all that." First Class Act was 8-1/4 lengths back in second, with Keystone Carly third. Chris Beaver trains Zoe Bi, a daughter of Donato Hanover-Octavia Bi who has won three of her four career starts, and owns with Marion Beachy and Synerco Ventures. Explosive G had been racing off the trot, so when trainer/driver Wilbur Yoder sent her to the front at the quarter, the daughter of Explosive Matter-Vacation's Over was temporarily out of her comfort zone. "She got a little lost there," Yoder said. "When she got her head in front, she thought it was over. I had to coax her a little bit and pull the plugs. When she got to the front, she was okay. When she gets to the front, she fights." She defeated Win Treasures by a neck in 1:59.4 while Nicole Hanover completed the ticket. Robert Hess owns Explosive G, a $47,000 yearling acquisition. Fish Is Fish unleashed an explosive three-wide move down the backside that surprised Dirk Simpson, who conditions the daughter of Andover Hall-Drinks Like A Fish for Ed Teefey. "I was a little concerned," Simpson said of his $14,000 yearling purchase. "I thought she would get a great second-over trip, and then she had to do all that work on the backside. She got a little lazy in the last turn, but when she heard a horse coming, she picked the bit up and finished well." Fish Is Fish had just enough to hold off Diamondstone Us by a neck in 1:59, with Reiza third. Friday's card also featured the $20,000 Walter "Boots" Dunn Memorial Trot, a Preferred Handicap that honored the memory of the late trainer, driver, breeder and fairs official. Call For Justice prevailed for Dave Palone, trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC, one of five wins for Palone on the 15-race program. It was the 12th consecutive victory at The Meadows for the 5-year-old son of Justice Hall-Mika's Mazurka, although losses at other tracks have been sprinkled in, who extended his career bankroll to $390,917. by Evan Paddock, for the Meadows

WASHINGTON, PA, July 25, 2017 — After collecting career victory 18,000 two weeks ago, Hall of Famer Dave Palone continues to roll to the next milestone.  The “winningest” driver in harness racing history piloted seven winners on Tuesday’s 14-race card at The Meadows. Palone scored a pair of victories each for trainers Rom Burke and Paul Corey and singletons for Brent Davis, Dane Snyder and John Sullivan. Also on Tuesday’s program, players finally solved the mystery of the Pick 5, which had eluded them for three consecutive cards and prompted a $75,000 total-pool guarantee, largest in track history. The Pick 5 returned $6,451 for a $2 ticket. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

WASHINGTON, PA, July 12, 2017 -- Dave Palone, already harness racing's all-time "winningest" driver, continues to go where no reinsman has gone before, as he collected career victory 18,000 Wednesday at The Meadows. The landmark win came with Outburst in the 11th race. "It's pretty gratifying," said Palone, who boasts more than $135 million in career purses. "I'm starting to reflect on all the years, all the hard work and all the things that had to go right. I've been very lucky -- pretty much injury free although I've had some serious accidents. But I was able to bounce back and have all the great opportunities I've had." The milestones have come at a rapid pace for Palone, who in 2010 was inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame. Among the recent highlights: July 5, 2012 -- Palone notches career win 15,181 to pass the late Herve Filion as North America's all-time leading driver. Sept. 24, 2013 -- Palone scores career victory 16,000 at The Meadows, his home track throughout his career. Nov. 14, 2014 -- The Waynesburg, PA native secures career win 16,754 to supplant Germany's Heinz Wewering as the "winningest" driver in the world -- and accepts videotaped congratulations from the gracious Wewering. May 13, 2015 -- Career win 17,000 comes at The Meadows. A competitive nature always has been a dominant theme of Palone's career; these days, he acknowledges that he's mellowed ever so slightly. "I can't say I'm as intense as I was in my 30s. I'm a little more laid back now, enjoying things like golfing and the kids. But when I put my helmet on for the first, I'm ready to go and as intense as ever." At 55, he continues to maintain a full driving schedule, although he's dialed back his workload a bit. United States Trotting Association records indicate that Palone had 2,827 drives in 2008, a career high. His 2016 total was 2,036, and he's on pace for about that this year. He's carving out a little more time for golf and family activities, including supporting his wife Bethann and daughters at their barrel racing competitions. "You would love to have the pick of the litter and the cream of the crop every day," he said. "I've been giving myself breaks now and then when it doesn't look like the opportunities (for wins) present themselves. I'll take half a day or a golf day or do something with the kids. For the most part, it's been 35 years of nose to the grindstone and showing up every day and getting it done." He doesn't anticipate doing anything differently in the immediate future. I don't really have any plans except to show up and race every day," he said. "I just hope to stay healthy and able to compete at the top level and win races. I'm still having fun with it. It's like any other sport: when you fail to produce, you'll know when it's time to go." The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

WASHINGTON, PA, July 11, 2017 -- A handful for Aaron Merriman for much of the mile, Vivacious Allie got her act together in the Lightning Lane and broke her maiden in a stake-record 1:55 in Tuesday's $167,016 Pennsylvania Sires Stake at The Meadows. The event for freshman filly trotters, known as the Meadow Gladys, was contested over four divisions, with Manchego, Front Circle and Special Hill taking the other splits. Yannick Gingras and trainer Jimmy Takter teamed for a stake double with Manchego and Special Hill. The four winning fillies provided a sire's sweep for their dad, Muscle Hill. With two victories on the 13-race card, Dave Palone pushed his career win total to 17,999. He has 12 scheduled assignments on Wednesday's program. Merriman indicated Vivacious Allie was a little too vivacious early on. "She did every single thing but run in the first turn," he said. "It was a miracle I even kept her trotting. When she flattened out in the stretch, she showed a lot of heart for being as steppy as she was in the turns. I was very impressed with her resiliency." The daughter of Muscle Hill-KD Girl caught Hey Livvy late and defeated her by a head, with Seviyorum third. The time knocked a tick from the stake mark established last year by Fine Tuned Lady and is the fastest this year by a 2-year-old filly trotter on a five-eighths-mile track. Ake Svanstadt trains Vivacious Allie, a $120,000 yearling acquisition, for Hans Enggren. Manchego launched her career with an eye-popping June 30 Meadowlands win in 1:54.4. While not as fast in the Meadow Gladys, she was just as effective, winning on the front in 1:56.2. Tiffany's Flash was 2-1/2 lengths back in second while Msnaughtyashill completed the ticket. "So far she's one of the better-looking fillies, but there are a lot of good fillies out there, so we'll go from there," Gingras said. "Let her do the talking." Black Horse Racing, John Fielding and Herb Liverman campaign Manchego, a $120,000 yearling purchase out of Secret Magic. With her victory, Front Circle, who sold for $110,000 as a yearling, remains undefeated in her two-race career, with both wins from off the trot. That may be unusual for a green trotter, but winning driver Matt Kakaley indicated it's her preferred style. "She's way better with a target -- definitely," Kakaley said. "This one was pretty easy for her -- I didn't even pull the plugs. She won't go much more than she has to; she just gets the job done." Front Circle downed early leader Air Quote Hanover by 1-1/4 lengths, while Olive R Klosov closed well for show. Ron Burke conditions the daughter of Muscle Hill-Sheena Hall for Burke Racing Stable, Silva Purnel & Libby, Michelle Yanek and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. In the $22,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot, Jewels In Hock worked hard for the early lead but had little trouble thereafter, prevailing in 1:54.3 for Palone, Burke and owner Crawford Farms Racing. Goodtogo Hanover was second, 2-1/4 lengths in arrears, with Nothing But Nice third. The 5-year-old daughter of Credit Winner-Jewels Galore now boasts $491,193 in career earnings.

WASHINGTON, PA, June 28, 2017 -- Wilberforce followed live cover, then exploded out of the final turn to capture Wednesday's harness racing feature at The Meadows, an $11,500 Conditioned Trot. Wilberforce was fifth down the backside when Dave Palone moved him behind the first-over Tall Cotton. When his cover stalled, the 5-year-old Caviar Crown-Rose Run Imprint gelding went wide and found another gear, scoring in 1:54.3. Tricky Nick chased Wilberforce home to be second, 2-1/4 lengths back, while Monte Cristo Spur rallied for show. Kris Rickert conditions Wilberforce, who now boasts $180,786 in career earnings, and owns with Dale Wareham. Aaron Merriman collected five wins on the 12-race card for as many trainers -- Joelene Christman, Bill Daugherty, Jr., Sal Digati, Jeff Hochstetler and Bill Rhoades. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

WASHINGTON, PA, April 15, 2017 -- Beach House looked vulnerable late after fronting the mile, but he held on gamely to notch his second straight series victory in Saturday's Unlocked Pace at The Meadows. Southwind Yukon took the other $15,000 division in the event for harness racing 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers, giving Dave Palone a sweep of the second leg.

WASHINGTON, PA, April 10, 2017 -- It isn't often that players get to reap double-digit rewards when Dave Palone drives for trainer Ron Burke, but it happened twice Monday at The Meadows when the harness racing  duo teamed to sweep both $15,000 second-leg divisions of the Medusa Pace for 3-year-old fillies with Sapphire Breeze (14-1) and Beach Club (12-1).
