LEXINGTON, KY--The $224,100 International Stallion Stakes (ISS) for 2-year-old filly pacers was the first grouping of Grand Circuit action on the Friday, Oct. 9 harness racing program at The Red Mile. Undefeated in eight races this season, the Jimmy Takter-trained Pure Country snagged the first of three $74,700 ISS splits in 1:52.1. The Somebeachsomewhere filly from the Western Hanover mare Western Montana secured the top spot from Hug A Dragoness after a :28 first quarter. She proceeded to stride through fractions of :56.1 and 1:25.3. In the stretch, she encountered a rally from Yankee Moonshine, but, despite drifting off the pylons, managed to hold her off easily heading to the line. Yankee Moonshine finished second, ahead of Mother Of Art and Soft Idea. Sent off the overwhelming choice at 1-9, Pure Country returned $2.10 to win. She's owned by Diamond Creek Racing and driven by Brett Miller.   "We bought the mare [Western Montana] as a yearling," owner Adam Bowden said. "We've kept all the foals from her so far, and she's [Pure Country] the best one."   "I think it was easy [on her]," Jimmy Takter said. "She kind of toyed with them in the stretch. As soon as she saw the horse at the inside [Yankee Moonshine], she took off on another couple gears. I was a little worried myself, but I'm happy that she learned how to take care of herself.   "She's just a magnificent filly," Takter also said. "She's up there in the top fillies I've ever been around."   The second division of the ISS went to Rock Me Baby, who vaulted off a second-over trip in the stretch towards a 1:53 victory.   The tempo was managed by Call Me Queen Be, who put up a :28.1 first quarter. By the half, Kiss Me Onthebeach marched from the middle of the pack to take command from Call Me Queen Be, putting up splits of :57.1 and 1:25.2 as leader. Riding the cover of Wine Snob around the far turn, Rock Me Baby hastily fanned three wide at the top of the stretch, pacing by within a matter of strides. While Call Me Queen Be and Kiss Me Onthebeach kept pace with Rock Me Baby, they finished second and third respectively.   Sired by Rock N Roll Heaven, from the mare Lover Of Art by Artsplace, Rock Me Baby collected her second win of the season in six starts. Trained by Staffan Lind and driven by John Campbell, the $8.40 winner competes for the interests of Bender Sweden, Acadia Farms, Staffan Lind, and E. Fannin.   "She's really coming into her own right now," Staffan Lind said. "She's always been a very nice filly; I've been high on her all along, but she wanted to do too much in the beginning and she made a couple of breaks when we pulled the earplugs."   "She was sick [on Aug. 21 at Vernon Downs]," Lind also said. "She's best on the big track; we were supposed to race her at Vernon and then go to the She's A Great Lady. I wanted to get a nice race first [before coming back]."   "Corey's [Callahan] mare kind of stalled and then she went on again when I tipped out," John Campbell said. "She [Rock Me Baby] gave me a good run when I tipped her, and she paced strong to the wire."   "I thought she could go with the Grand Circuit fillies off of last week," Campbell also said. "I think she had the fastest last quarter [of the card] last week; it [the track] was very tiring, and she marched home in :27-and-a-piece. I thought she'd step up in company."   Darlinonthebeach won the final ISS division with a vicious brush down the backstretch to take the lead and hold onto it in progress towards a 1:51.4 mile. The Nancy Johnasson trainee overtook pacesetter Shezarealdeal, who circled by Blue Moon Stride at the quarter in :27.4 to make the lead. However, once Darlinonthebeach took the lead, setting fractions of :56.1 and 1:24.2, she held off challenges from Shezarealdeal and Dime A Dozen by sprinting to a four-length victory.   Racing for the interests of White Birch Farm, Darlinonthebeach, a filly by Somebeachsomewhere out of Darlin's Delight by Bettor's Delight, won her second race of the year in eight starts. Driven by David Miller, she paid $7.60 to win.   "She has been a nice filly from the get-go," Nancy Johnasson said. "She got a little sick on us earlier in the summer [July 17 at The Meadows], and we had to scratch her once there. We kind of got off on the wrong foot and she got too aggressive, but she's just turned right around. She did a really good move on the backside and she's good on the frontend."   "I'm very thankful that they [White Birch Farms] gave me a chance to train her. I train at White Birch Farm, and we had Jk She'salady last year, so I guess they figured they'd give me a shot with another pacing filly. So far it has turned out well."   By Ray Cotolo, for The Red Mile

Freehold, NJ --- Each of the past two years, Bob Stewart watched Creatine post memorable harness racing victories on Kentucky Futurity Day at Stewart’s home track, The Red Mile in Lexington. On Saturday, Stewart will hope to see Creatine win again on a Futurity Day afternoon, but this time the race will take place hundreds of miles from Kentucky. Creatine is among the 10 horses in Saturday’s $1 million International Trot at Yonkers Raceway in New York. Creatine, a 5-year-old stallion who is returning to the U.S. after racing 10 times this year in Europe, will start from post No. 1 in the invitational event and is the 4-1 second choice on the morning line behind 3-1 favorite Bee A Magician. Post time is 2 p.m. for Saturday’s first race at Yonkers. The International Trot, which returns to Yonkers after a 20-year hiatus and brings together horses from six different countries, is set for 3:10 p.m. approximately. The race will be contested at 1-1/4 miles rather than the traditional one-mile distance. Stewart trained Creatine at ages 2, 3 and 4, before the horse went overseas. Creatine, at age 3, won the 2013 Kentucky Futurity at The Red Mile and a year later came back on Futurity Day to upset world-champion Sebastian K by a head in the Allerage Farms Open Trot. “We’ve had a couple special moments with him,” Stewart said. “To win the Futurity at our home track was great. That was special. And beating Sebastian K the next year was very special. This is our home and you always like to do good at home. As you go through life, it’s nice to get some good memories.” Creatine could add to those memories in New York on Saturday, which also is the same day as this year’s Kentucky Futurity in Lexington. Stewart no longer trains the horse -- Creatine now is in the care of Jimmy Takter -- but he joined in the trotter’s ownership in February. Creatine, bred by Diamond Creek Farm, is now owned by Big C Racing, which is Diamond Creek principal Adam Bowden, Stewart and his wife Lynda, and Diamond Creek Racing. “It’s exciting and I’m glad he came back,” Stewart said. “He drew the rail and I was told that he trained well the other day up there, so we have high hopes. “It’s the first time he’s ever raced on a half-mile track, but I guess by the time he gets to the third or fourth or fifth turn he’ll have it figured out,” he added with a laugh. “He’s a pretty sure-footed horse. Who knows who is going to get the best trip out of a 10-horse field on a half-mile track, but we like our starting position, I can tell you that. He’s always had very good gate speed. He can take control of a race if that’s the plan.” Creatine has won 16 of 50 career starts, including two Grade 1 victories in Europe, and earned $1.71 million. He heads to the International Trot, where he will be driven by Johnny Takter, off a second-place finish to Mosaique Face in the UET Masters Trot final on Sept. 13 in Belgium. Sweden’s Mosaique Face also is in the International Trot, starting from post eight. “We were two wide for the last three-eighths of a mile and we were locked in,” Stewart said about the UET Masters Trot. “He actually had the most trot when he shook loose. He just didn’t have enough time to catch (Mosaique Face).” Stewart wishes he could watch Creatine in person on Saturday, but the trainer is sending out three horses at The Red Mile that day, including Bright Baby Blues in the Kentucky Filly Futurity. “We’re sad we can’t make it up there,” Stewart said. “Yonkers was very gracious with their invitation. Any other day of the year we could do it, but not Futurity Day when we have three horses racing here. But we’re very excited.” For more about the International Trot and its participants, please visit the event’s special website here. Following is the field in post order for the International Trot with listed drivers, trainers and morning line odds: 1. Creatine, Johnny Takter, Jimmy Takter, 4-1 2. Papagayo E, Ulf Ohlsson, Jan Waaler, 5-1 3. Rod Stewart, Enrico Bellei, Jerry Riordan, 12-1 4. Timoko, Bjorn Goop, Richard Westerink, 6-1 5. Bee A Magician, Brian Sears, R. Nifty Norman, 3-1 6.

The Friday afternoon program at  the harness racing meeting at The Red Mile attracted three divisions for the $224,100 International Stallion Stakes (ISS) for 2-year-old filly pacers and four divisions for the $272,000 ISS for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers.   The opening freshmen filly ISS split features the return of undefeated Pure Country, owned by Diamond Creek Racing. The winner of seven starts and $342,618, the Jimmy Takter-trainee won a $81,000 division of the Bluegrass over a sloppy track in 1:56.1 as the 1-9 favorite on Oct. 2. By Somebeachsomewhere out of the Western Hanover mare Western Montana, she'll compete from post position six against Bluegrass starters Skinny Dipper, Upside Surprise, Mother Of Art, and Hug A Dragoness. Earning $250,136 this season, Call Me Queen Be highlights the second split. Sired by Somebeachsomewhere, out of the Western Terror mare Preppy Party Girl, she finished third as the 1-5 favorite in a $81,000 division of the Bluegrass on Oct. 2. Owned by Let It Ride Stables Inc. and Dana Parham, she has won four races in seven outings this season. Matching up with her once again is the Nancy Johansson-trained Jk Fannie, who finished third to the Ross Croghan-trainee in a $127,150 division of the Kentuckiana at Hoosier Park on Sept. 26. Bluegrass starters Kiss Me Onthebeach, Wine Snob, East Side Hanover, and Eloquent Grace also draw into this division.   The final division of the ISS filly pace gathers Bluegrass division winner Shezarealdeal and She's A Great Lady runner-up Darlinonthebeach. Shezarealdeal, sent off the 1-5 favorite in her division, she won her fourth race out of eight starts with a 1:56.4 mile over the slop. Darlinonthebeach enters this event with one win in seven starts, and earnings of $167,041 this season. She was recently second in a $125,900 division of the Kentuckiana Stakes, which followed her second-place finish in the $341,250 She's A Great Lady to L A Delight. The first of a quartet brings back Bluegrass starters Beach Ogre, I'm Some Graduate, Mr Right Hanover, and Ideal Rocky. In the Bluegrass, I'm Some Graduate and Ideal Rocky were sent off the 4-5 and 8-5 favorites respectively, with them also finishing fourth and third respectively. I'm Some Graduate, a colt by Somebeachsomewhere out of the Western Hanover mare Western Graduate owned by John Cancelliere, has won four races in six starts, and earned $109,927. Ideal Rocky, a Rocknroll Hanover colt out of Eternity's Delight by Bettor's Delight owned by William Wiswell, Jean Goehlen, and Eugene Schick, has won four races in 10 starts, earning $167,151. Big Top Hanover and Owen Hanover, both entering off of second-place efforts in the Bluegrass on Oct. 3, compete in the second division. Big Top Hanover, conditioned by Ron Burke for the interests of Jt45 and Burke Racing Stables LLC, has won one in nine starts this year. The son of Western Ideal out of the Art Major mare Blind Ambition has earned $121,621. Owen Hanover, by Cam's Card Shark out of On Her Way by Abercrombie, is owned by Jerry Clark and Tammy Crescenze. The winner of two races in 10 starts, earning $69,099 in the process, is conditioned by Noel Daley. Tony Alagna's American Passport, winner of a Bluegrass division in 1:56.1, faces world champion Spider Man Hanover in the third round of ISS. Winning a $23,100 division of the Standardbred at Delaware, Ohio in a world-record time of 1:51.4, beating the mark of 1:52.2 set by On Golden Ponder at Delaware and set by He's Watching at Yonkers Raceway, both occurring in 2013. From the Brian Brown barn, the Western Ideal colt out of Art Major mare Stolly Up Bluechip has won four in seven starts and earned $189,300. American Passport, an American Ideal colt out of Star Of The Show by Four Starzzz Shark, competes for the interests of Brittany Farms, Riverview Racing, Alagna Racing, and Jodi Siammis.

WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 11, 2015 -- Pure Country and Broadway Donna, a pair of harness racing's rising stars, remained undefeated Friday at The Meadows when each captured a Pennsylvania Sires Stake championship. Friday's program, which offered more than $1.72 million in purses, included all four $350,000 PASS finals (two actually were worth $351,000 thanks to starting fees for also-eligibles who drew in) for 2-year-olds as well as a $60,000 consolation in each division. Ideal Jimmy and Lagerfeld won the other championships. Trainer Jimmy Takter enjoyed a PASS championship double with Pure Country and Lagerfeld. A recap of the program, one of the richest in track history: $350,000 PASS Championship -- 2-Year-Old Filly Pacers Pure Country idled outside until the field settled, then grabbed the lead for Brett Miller past the quarter. "I didn't push her out of the gate -- I wanted to see how things were unfolding," Miller said. "I had so much confidence in her I felt like she could get beat only if I did something really stupid. I pulled her ear plugs in the last turn and hollered at her, and she took off. She's never felt as good as she did today." Diamond Creek Racing's homebred daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Western Montana won handily -- as she did in her previous five starts -- in 1:51, a track record for freshman pacing fillies, a stake record and the fastest mile this year by a 2-year-old filly pacer on a five-eighths-mile track. Call Me Queen Be was a ground-saving second, 3-3/4 lengths back, with I Said Diamonds third. Takter indicated Pure Country will be pointed to the Breeders Crown with a number of stake engagements before then. "She's as good as they come," Takter said. "I think she's the best. She has the look, and her gait is just fantastic. Do you remember the filly I had a couple years ago, American Jewel? She reminds me of American Jewel." Pure Country soared over $300,000 in career earnings and became the first freshman filly pacer in PASS history to sweep all her preliminary legs and the final. She also boosted her 2015 PASS earnings to $286,918 -- most ever in a single PASS season. $351,000 PASS Championship -- 2-Year-Old Filly Trotters Unbeaten in seven previous starts, Broadway Donna appeared to be in a pickle when she was trapped behind the tiring leader, the previously undefeated Whitelake Hanover, as Kathy Parker wrested away the lead. But neither winning driver David Miller nor the homebred daughter of Donato Hanover-Broadway Schooner panicked. They blew by easily in the Lightning Lane, defeating Kathy Parker by 2 lengths in 1:55.4. Womans Will rallied for show. Broadway Donna, winner of the James Doherty Memorial final, lifted her lifetime bankroll to $466,536. Winning trainer Jim Campbell, who conditions Broadway Donna for Fashion Farms, said he feared she would not find daylight in time. "It was a concern," he said, "but I think, win or lose, David did the right thing. It would have been too early to pull. This filly finds a way to do it, and David did a terrific job with her. She's a professional. It's horses like her that make guys like me look better." Campbell indicated Broadway Donna will next race at the Red Mile. $351.000 PASS Championship -- 2-Year-Old Colt & Gelding Trotters Love Matters, the 3-5 favorite, opened his career with six straight wins and was purchased by the powerful Takter stable before his last start. He was rolling along to his seventh when he made an inexplicable break around the final turn. Three other contenders also jumped it off at some point in the mile. "He kind of lost his balance and was running in a little bit in the last turn," said his driver, Marcus Miller. "I'm sure Jimmy will figure it out." Takter's disappointment lasted about 25 seconds because it was his colt, Lagerfeld, who picked up the pieces. The son of Yankee Glide-Southern Senorita, dismissed at 11-1 because of a four-race losing streak, triumphed for Yannick Gingras in a career-best 1:55.3. Sliding Home was three-quarter lengths back in second while Dupree, an also-eligible who drew in, earned show. "I'll take it," Takter said of the unexpected victory. "He's been racing good. He got lost on the front last week when I drove him -- he never cut the mile, so he didn't know what to do." Christina Takter, John Fielding, Herb Liverman and Jim Fielding campaign Lagerfeld. $350,000 PASS Championship -- 2-Year-Old Colt & Gelding Pacers If they compete long enough, horsemen often get a chance to rebound from disappointments. Few, however, get that opportunity as quickly as Marcus Miller did. The very next race after the Love Matters blow-up, Miller guided Ideal Jimmy to victory in 1:51 for trainer Robin Cruise and owner D.R. Van Witzenberg. The first-over Spider Man Hanover was second, 1-1/4 lengths in arrears, with Manhattan Beach third. "You feel like you got kicked in the face and then get the biggest win in your career -- all in about 15 minutes," Miller said. The Western Ideal-Armbro Nectarine gelding erased a 9-length deficit at the half with his customary rally, a style Miller said he is reluctant to change. "It's just kind of the way it's been working out," he said. "I couldn't (leave with him) early because he was steppy, but I think he's over that -- I probably shouldn't say that. He's a little horse and he likes to run them down. I figured I didn't have to change anything today -- they were rocking it out of there." PASS NOTES: The consolations went to Twill Be Done (2ft), Newborn Sassy (2fp), Alexander Hanover (2ct) and I'm Some Graduate (2cp), whose time of 1:50.3 established a track record for freshman pacing colts . . . Newborn Sassy's outing was bittersweet, as she took home $30,000 but lost her stake and track records to Pure Country . . . Despite a demanding opening quarter, Easy Again took the $18,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace for Gingras, trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Panhellenic Stable and M1 Stable.

A pair of American Nationals for 2yo trotters and another Super Night elimination closed the books on a busy holiday weekend of harness racing stake action at Balmoral Park. In the opening American National a field of seven diagonally gaited fillies lined up behind the gate to battle for a purse of $46,750. Overlooked in the wagering after having some "breaking" issues to start her career, Diamond Creek Racing and Robert & Lynda Stewart's Catch All was as sure footed as could be while stepping her way to a three-quarter length victory in a snappy 1:56.4 for driver Trace Tetrick. Ducked off the gate as Bold Dresser (Oyvind Hegdal) led the field through opening splits of 28.3 & 58.4 Catch All was positioned perfectly in third as she moved to the outside with the field heading around the final bend.   "I wanted to let her get settled in for a bit before I asked her for anything," said Tetrick. "When I raced her at the Indiana State Fair she felt great to me and she showed me that day that she could grind away on the outside if you needed her to."   Grind away she did on this night, drawing to within a head of the pace setter as the two fillies reached the three-quarter-mile mark in 1:27.1. In the lane the Bob Stewart trained daughter of Muscles Yankee--Clever Catch wore down the leader and proceeded to draw clear for her first career win in start number four. I Luv Blackhawkred (Lewayne Miller) turned a pocket sitting trip into a second place check while Bold Dresser held on for the show dough. After the impressive win, which was just three ticks off the track record of 1:56.1, Tetrick was quick to praise the $17,000 Lexington Select purchase. "I thought a lot of her after that second place finish in Indy," said Hoosier Park's leading reinsman. "Everything is still pretty new to her with this being only her fourth career start but I though she really stepped up tonight and showed that she's going to be a very serious race horse." The fourth choice in the wagering Catch All returned $21.40, $7.60 & $2.80 to her backers. Another 9-1 choice captured the $60,400 American National for 2yo trotting colts as Mystical Marker Farms, Bobby Brower, Ben Graber and Victory Hill Farms Barryscourt rallied in the final strides to nip 1-9 favorite Waitlifter K by a neck in 1:56.1. Perfectly handled by driver Lewayne Miller, the gelded son of Northern Kid--Katie Hall left alertly from post six and was able to find a seat in third as Waitlifter K (Trace Tetrick) carved out uncontested splits of 28.3, 57.3 & 1:26.2. With the heavy favorite opening up a three-length advantage at the top of the lane things looked bleak for the Bobby Brower trainee but Miller never stopped urging his charge as he gradually cut into the margin while racing on the outside of horses. With a sixteenth of a mile to go Barryscourt edged alongside the leader and gamely managed to poke a neck in front in the final strides to post his third win in four career starts. Waitlifter K was forced to settle for the runner-up role on this night while JD Cheese (Dale Hiteman) was third, 4¾ lengths behind the top pair. With the win the Kentucky Sire Stakes champion, who returned $20.20, $2.60 & $2.20 now boasts a gaudy bankroll of $125,400 in just four career starts. The final Super Night elimination of the busy weekend also put trotters in the spotlight as a field of 10 sophomore fillies battled in a $12,500 Lady Ann Reed Stake elimination. The top 9 finishers will return next Saturday for the $80,000 (est.) final where they will be joined by Persuasive Look. This battle produced one of the most impressive performances of the weekend as Dr. Patrick Graham's Fox Valley Yoko rallied from far back to win by a half-length in 1:58.2 for driver Kyle Wilfong. Hampered in the draw with post nine, the daughter of Pizzazzed--Hallie Rose saved ground for most of the mile while sitting near the back of the pack. After finally securing racing room in the lane, the Curt Grummel trained miss uncorked a huge rally going from eighth to first in the final quarter mile to notch her third win in 10 starts this year. Shez So Sassy finished in the bridesmaid role while Lc'snmotion (Mike Oosting) rallied to be third. Also gaining spots in the final were Bi Polar Rose, Fox Valley Harrah, Patient ID, Maple Grove Karen, None of That Stuff and Divinely Floozy. Tom Kelley  

With Father Patrick's racing career now completed, breeder and co-owner Adam Bowden is looking forward to the next phase of the trotter's career as a fulltime stallion. The 4-year-old Father Patrick did double duty this season as a race horse and stallion. Diamond Creek Farm, owned by Bowden and his father Chris, is managing the multiple Dan Patch Award honoree's breeding career. Bowden said he learned earlier this week that Father Patrick would be retired because of a lung infection. Trained by Jimmy Takter, Father Patrick won 23 of 33 lifetime races, finished second on six occasions, and earned $2.55 million. He is owned by the Father Patrick Stable, a group made up of Brixton Medical Inc., Diamond Creek Farm LLC, John Fielding, Christina Takter, Brittany Farms, and the partnership of Marvin Katz, Al Libfeld and Sam Goldband. Father Patrick is a son of stallion Cantab Hall out of the mare Gala Dream. He is a full brother to Dan Patch Award winner Pastor Stephen as well as stakes-winner Whom Shall I Fear. His mother, Gala Dream, is a half-sister to Dan Patch Award winner Chocolatier and stakes-winner Sugar Trader. "Pedigree, looks, race record - he checks all the boxes," Bowden said. "It doesn't hurt that Jimmy said he's the best horse he ever trained. He had class and charisma on the track and he exhibited the same qualities in the breeding shed this year. He took to his job easily. He was able to differentiate between breeding and racing. We were happy." Bowden said Father Patrick bred 73 mares this year and 58 are in foal. "That was sort of a trial run and now we're ready for the big leagues," Bowden said. "We were very happy, considering there were weeks where he only bred twice because of a race. He had an intermittent schedule throughout the year between qualifying and racing. But everybody was flexible with us and he got a great group of mares." Father Patrick's wins included the Breeders Crown at ages 2 and 3 plus last year's Canadian Trotting Classic, Earl Beal Jr. Memorial, Dr. Harry M. Zweig Memorial, Stanley Dancer Memorial, and American-National Stakes. In 2013, his victories also included the William Wellwood Memorial and Peter Haughton Memorial. His 1:50.2 win in the Beal at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono is the fastest mile ever by a 3-year-old on a five-eighths-mile track. He also holds the world record for a 2-year-old colt on the same sized oval, with a mark of 1:52.1. This year, Father Patrick won one of five starts - capturing the Maxie Lee Memorial Invitational by two lengths over Bee A Magician on May 24 at Harrah's Philadelphia - finished second twice and earned $120,995. He finished sixth in his final two races, the most recent on July 18 in the Hambletonian Maturity. His runner-up efforts came to JL Cruze in preliminary rounds of the Graduate Series. "Even though he lost to JL Cruze, he lost by a neck and a half-length in 1:51 and 1:50.4," Bowden said. "You can't complain about those two efforts. Clearly in his last two races something wasn't right. "But Father Patrick is a great horse and we expect great things from his foals."

WILKES-BARRE PA -- Pure Country put an exclamation point on trainer Jimmy Takter's Hambletonian/Oaks-winning weekend as she remained undefeated with the easiest of 1:53.2 victories in one of four divisions of the $253,980 third preliminary leg of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for harness racing two-year-old pacing fillies on Sunday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.   The fabulous filly by Somebeachsomewhere out of Western Montana was directed to the front early by Brett Miller, reaching that station in 28 and then getting a walk to the park with a 58 half. Up came Shesasmokinlady on a big first-over move, and out came the earplugs as Pure Country got to the 3/4 in 1:26, and she then finished in 27.2 under a stretchlong hold by Miller in winning by 2 1/4 lengths. Heelsonthebeach, who had sat second behind the winner through much of the mile but was past by Shesasmokinlady nearing the 3/4, came back in the lane for second, with Shesasmokinlady settling for third.   Pure Country is the only filly to have won in each of the first three Sire Stakes legs, and she is 4-for-4 in purse competition, having started her career here with a PA All-Stars win. She was bred and is owned by Diamond Creek.   Fastest of the four miles was the 1:52.1 hung up by Yankee Moonshine (Yankee Cruiser-Bootleg Yankee), moved early to command by driver Matt Kakaley and then holding off the late charge of Princess Fabulosa by 3/4 of a length while taking a new mark. Ron Burke trains the fast baby for the ownership of Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Lawrence Karr, and JT45.   In this victory, Yankee Moonshine was the only non-previous Sires winner to tally (she was 2-3 in her earlier prelims), and she was the only winner to have raced for a purse since the July 17 Meadows Sires leg, having won an Arden Downs event on Adios Day. She was the 6-5 second choice behind 4-5 chalk Ivy League (Somebeachsomewhere - See You At Peelers), who was in perfect second-over position when she lost her momentum in the final turn and finished back.   The Well Said-Silkandidamonds filly I Said Diamonds moved to second-place in the divisional pointstandings behind Pure Country by becoming a "pocket rocket" under the handling of David Miller and earning a new speed badge of 1:52.3. The winner now has two triumphs and a second in the Sire Stakes, with Paul Holzman doing the conditioning for owner Omar Beiler, Susan Oakes, and Dennis Coons.   Another two-time Sires winner, and giving Somebeachsomewhere a siring double, is Call Me Queen Be, out of the mare Preppy Party Girl, who also came out of the two-hole, just nipping pacesetting Shezarealideal by a head in 1:52.4. Scott Zeron handled sulky duty for trainer Ross Croghan and owners Dana Parham and the Let It Ride Stables Inc.   PHHA / Pocono      

July 19, 2015 - Creatine (5m Andover Hall-Berry Nice Muscles) won today’s International Prix Saint Michel (purse €122,000, 8 starters, 1609 meters autostart) for trainer/driver Johnny Takter. From post five, Creatine went for the lead and was parked by Quick Fix and reinsman Jorma Kontio to almost the half mile mark when he yielded to the pocket. Quickly Takter was on the move again and cleared from Quick Fix at the three-quarter mark when he opened three lengths in the final bend and in the lane held off late closing 7/1 odds Solea Rivelliere (9f Calife des Noues-Heloa Rivelliere) driven by trainer Philippe Daugeard for an easy win clocked in 1.10.29 (1:53.10 mile rate). Creatine was the 5/1 favorite in what was an easy field. Solea Rivelliere was clocked in 1.10.54kr. Veteran Reven d’Amour (10m Revenue-Melody d’Amour) was third at 22/1 timed in 1.10.66kr for trainer Frederik B. Larsson. Seabiscuit and Bret Boko finished fourth and fifth. Smilin Eli, starting from post one, was offstride before the start. Creatine, racing with shoes on, went a tough trip and might be an important factor in future upper-class events. Adam Bowden (Diamond Creek) owns the winner.   No. Horse Driver Ed. km 1 5 Creatine JW Takter 1'10''3 2 6 Soléa Rivellière Ph. Daugeard 1'10''5 3 2 Reven d'Amour H.

Dublin, Ireland – Led by trainer/driver “Irish” Joe Hanney, American interests have come forth with more than $11,000 in sponsorship money for the Irish American FFA Cup at Portmarnock Raceway on Sunday, August 9. In addition, Heather Vitale introduced Derek Delaney to Adam Bowden and now Diamond Creek Farm in Kentucky will be a new sponsor of Ladbrokes Vincent Delaney Memorial starting in 2016. Now the total purses for the Delaney will be at $50,000. The Delaney Memorial, held August 8 & 9, is the richest race in all of Ireland and the UK. “During my recent trip to the USA in March, Irish Joe introduced me to so many people,” said Derek Delaney, who with his brother James, developed the race weekend in memory of their younger brother Vincent, who tragically passed away in 2011. “It’s been crazy ever since I returned from the USA,” Delaney explained, “So many people I met are now helping us with sponsorships. All the credit has to go to my buddy Irish Joe. He introduced me to the people and convinced them how we are working so hard to help build new fans in Ireland, improve our breeding program and enhance our stakes races. “And credit too to Heather Vitale,” Delaney said, “She came for the race last year and promoted us with her video features. This year total purses will be closer to $100,000!” Delaney said he has received sponsorships from Diamond Creek Farm, Nifty Norman Stable, Joe Holloway, American Dream Racing Stable, Bresnahan Racing Stable and American Viking Racing Stable. The Irish American FFA Cup will feature the best pacers in all of Ireland and the UK. “In addition, Joe Hanney introduced me to George Brennan,” Delaney added, “and now George is coming over for my brother’s race this year. How great is that! George is shipping over his special UFO race bike and he will use it over the weekend and then it will auctioned off for charity. Joe has also helped me get donations from so many others for our big auction to help raise money for the Saving Dylan Fund. “We now have race colors from George Brennan, John Campbell, Ron Pierce, Chris Christoforou, Brett Miller and other great items.” Delaney also said that with the growth and interest the past two years in his brother’s race, people are coming for the long weekend festival from all corners of the world. “It is amazing how this little race my brother James and I came up with is attracting people from all over,” Delaney said. “Not only do we have New Zealander Dexter Dunn, the 2015 World Driving Champion coming for the weekend, but also the top trainer in New Zealand, Cran Dalgety and Blood Stock agent and stud farm owner Peter Larkin from Australia. “I have heard from horsemen in Belgium and Sweden who are bringing over horses to race that weekend,” Delaney said. “This is all so fantastic and we are making every effort to make sure that everyone who is traveling from abroad and Europe that they will have a grand time here in Dublin.” The Delaney Memorial Weekend has now been developed into a “mini” Little Brown Jug, Gold Cup & Saucer and Elitloppet, all rolled into one. “This year will be a real festival weekend,” Delaney said. “On Friday, Aug. 7 we will have a bus tour to a breeding farm and training center, then Friday night is our gala dinner for 250 people.  Then Saturday, Aug. 8  is the elimination divisions for the Delaney Memorial and then Sunday the big show with the Delaney Memorial Final, consolation race, the Irish American FFA Cup, the Oakwood Stud for 3YO’s, the Paul Murtagh Memorial for 4YO’s and the inaugural of the “Red” John O’Donovan Memorial. What a grand day of racing this will be!” Derek Delaney also wanted to point out that after the race cards both Saturday and Sunday there will be a party at the Portmarnock Raceway bar and restaurant and he promises there will be no shortages of Guinness nor Irish Cider!

East Rutherford, NJ - When the notion to keep Harness Racing’s brightest stars on the racetrack beyond their three-year-old season was being considered by Jeff Gural as far back as 2010, it was the lure of having a "marquee" horse to promote that fueled his campaign to change the conditions of stakes to that end. Known as the “Gural rule” and currently in place for most of the major stakes, that vision is coming into focus as the 2015 Grand Circuit season gets underway in earnest.   To succeed, this initiative requires that rare equine athlete with talent and charisma enough to hold the attention of existing fans and pique the interest of new ones. Those qualities may well be embodied in the remarkably gifted trotter, Father Patrick. Crowned as the leader in his division at both two and three, Father Patrick has been touted by no less an authority that his Hall of Fame trainer Jimmy Takter as “the best horse I have ever trained”. The career winner of more than $2.5 million boasts a long list of accomplishments and just may possess the necessary "Star Power”.    Father Patrick was bred by George Segal’s Brittany Farms and purchased from the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale for $100,000 by Jimmy Takter for a group that included Brittany, Brixton Medical, John Fielding, Marvin Katz, Al Libfeld, Sam Goldband and Christina Takter. Adam Bowden came in after his freshman season to secure the breeding rights for his Diamond Creek Farm.     With his Dan Patch award-winning sophomore season complete and faced with another year on the track, members of the Father Patrick Stable contemplated how they might make the best of it. The group ultimately chose to implement a practice that is commonplace in Europe but heretofore untested in the US. Their decision was to breed Father Patrick to a limited book of top mares while he was being prepared for and embarking upon his four-year-old campaign; a decision that creates a new realm of possibilities if successful and the dual-purpose use of top horses in the US should become a viable option.     As winter turned to spring, Takter trained Father Patrick at his East Windsor, NJ farm and shipped him to nearby Walnridge Farm a few times each week to be bred. Throughout the course of this "double-duty" Father Patrick responded brilliantly on both fronts. By late April he was ready to race.    After three impressive qualifiers, Father Patrick had his baptism by fire in the $150,000 Maxie Lee facing the best older trotters around. Chief among the competition was 2013 Horse of the Year Bee A Magician, a five-year-old mare that was coming into the race off a pair of dominant performances in the Arthur Cutler Memorial.   The match-up of Father Patrick vs Bee A Magician, billed as the “Race of the Year” to that point, could not have been possible without Father Patrick’s return to the track at age four, which would have to be considered unlikely if not for the Gural rule. Father Patrick’s ability to compete with that group was proven out by his effortless 1:52.1 wire-to-wire romp in the Maxie Lee.    Yannick Gingras knows the horse well, having driven Father Patrick in virtually every race since the start of his career and spoke of his impressions on the physical and mental maturation from age three to four.   “I think breeding him has had a positive effect, he’s definitely changed from a boy to a man this year,” was Yannick’s take. “He is a smart horse that allows you to race him any way and the gait and athletic ability were always there for him, but this season he is more aggressive in a good way. I trained him several times this winter and could feel a difference, more power and determination.   “To be honest he was a tired horse by the end of last season. It was a lot of racing and shipping around for him and he won the Breeders Crown pretty much on talent and instinct. Knowing that, I was concerned how he might come back but he’s been so good I’m now wondering what he might be able to do even beyond this year. Granted it is very early but I feel he’s the kind of horse that could compete with the best International horses if the owners were to continue racing him. Personally, I’d love a chance to race him against the Europeans and test them with the very best we have when he's at the top of his game.”   With the world's fastest trotter Sebastian K's return to racing imminent, expatriate Maven rumored to be state-side this fall, TVG champ Intimidate sharpening his game in Canada, Natural Herbie rounding into form in the Midwest, European invader Mr Picolit qualifying tomorrow at The Meadowlands and Elitlopp winner Magic Tonight reportedly headed this way the possibilities for a fantastic trotting season right here in the good old US of A are intriguing, to say the least.    There are many components to advancing the "Gural Rule" and when asked by the industry to provide racing opportunities for the newly minted four-year-olds to gain seasoning as they prepare to compete with the older set, Gural responded by resurrecting the Graduate Series restricted to horses of that age. The four race series will provide over $1 million in total purses for the group with $250,000 Finals for both trotters and pacers set for early July at The Meadowlands.   The second leg of the Graduate comes up this Saturday at The Meadowlands and Father Patrick will participate in the eleventh race, facing six rivals for a purse of $56,250. His presence adds luster to the Belmont Day live program, offering customers a chance to see the best both breeds have to offer in one day.   There are four Graduate races on the Saturday night card, two for pacers with the finest of that group set to slug it out and a pair of trots with 2014 Trotter of the Year Shake It Cerry headlining the other division.   The Meadowlands offers a terrific venue in which to enjoy American Pharoah’s Triple Crown quest without the throng that will crowd into Belmont Park. Details on what the afternoon/evening at The Meadowlands has to offer including the second annual Seafood Fest are listed on the website. Post time on Saturday is 7:15pm.   Meadowlands Media Relations Department 

WILKES-BARRE PA - Harness racing driver Jim Morrill Jr. took the first two divisions of the $96,000 Pennsylvania All-Stars event for three-year-old colt pacers Saturday night at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, putting new marks on Wakizashi Hanover (1:50.2) and Blood Brother (1:51), before missing the "sweep" by a nose when Rise Up Now (1:50.2, driver Simon Allard) edged Allbeef N Nobull.   Wakizashi Hanover, an altered son of Dragon Again trained by Joanne Looney-King for the Tri County Stable of Nova Scotia, kept his seasonal tally perfect in two starts in winning by 1¼ lengths. Wakizashi took the early lead in 27, saw first 2014 PA Sire Stakes champion Yankee Bounty and then Dragon Eddy brush by him to the 54.3 half, which necessitated his moving first-over ahead of the oncoming Cardiac Fashion, who already had skirted trouble at two points in the mile. The winner took the lead past the 1:22 3/4s, with Yankee Bounty vacating the collapsing pocket when Cardiac Fashion tipped wide, but Wakizashi Hanover already had the jump, with Yankee Bounty able to clear back to the winner's inside to edge Cardiac Fashion by a neck for second.   Blood Brother paced his own last half in 54 flat to be up by a neck over a stubborn Rufo in the second cut. The Somebeachsomewhere gelding was taken off the gate and was rambunctious back in fifth as Joe Hill and Rufo were the prime disputers in the 26.4 opener, and was still seven lengths behind at the 55.3 half. Morrill had to take the uncovered route as Rufo was going unmolested on the lead, and had gained to within three lengths by the 1:23.2 3/4s. Taking the far turn very well, Blood Brother showed great ability to go up by a neck over his rival in early stretch, but Rufo never let the margin get bigger than that as he put up a fierce struggle down the lane. The talented winner still looks like he'll learn from (and improve with) more racing, and with Jimmy Takter training him for Diamond Creek Racing and the J&T Silva Stables LLC, it seems likely he'll build on his 2 for 2 2015 start.   Morrill had Allbeef N Nobull on top twice before the 3/8 in the third cut, but the deck reshuffles more on the Pocono racetrack than it does in the casino, and after the 26.3 quarter Rise Up Now and driver Allard were following their main rival to the top, hitting the half in 55.2 and the 3/4s in 1:23.1. The stretch duel boiled down to these two, with "Allbeef" gaining in the famed Pocono Pike, and might have taken it all were he bigger than the smallish sophomore he is, but Rise Up Now, also an altered son of Somebeachsomewhere, held gamely and won by the smallest margin to give him both a perfect yearly record after four starts and a new mark. Trainer Brian Brown, the defending Jugette champion with Color's A Virgin and who has a Pennsylvania UTR this year of (no typo) .821 at the moment, may find himself with a ticket to the Thursday big race at the Delaware dance for the Strollin Stable, King McNamara (the Floridian is the only non-Buckeye in the ownership group), William Robinson, and Country Club Acres Inc.   '********* "The girls" would have to put on quite a show Sunday to match the colt fireworks tonight, but there's lots of talented in tomorrow night's $128,000 All-Stars sophomore distaff pace, including 2014 PA Sire Stakes champion Southwind Roulette, fellow Breeders Crown finalist Well Hello There, and first-round Sire Stakes winners Safe From Terror and Storm Point - all of whom come from the ubiquitiously-victorious barn of Ron Burke.   Brian Brown? His PASS winner of last week, Serious Filly, is sitting this one out, but he has Somewhere Sweet and Triple V Hanover, both second last week, in Sunday night. Maybe he'll be in both big Delaware dances - and can you think of anything better for a "hometown boy"?   PHHA / Pocono  

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - (Friday, March 27, 2015) No Melady's Monet, no problem, that has been the theme for Odds On Amethyst over the past month and that them continued Friday night at The Meadowlands. In his last five starts, Odds On Amethyst has faced Melady's Monet twice, losing both races. In his other three starts, he has found the harness racing winner's circle, including tonight at The Big M. Assigned the outside post in the field of eight, Odds On Amethyst was a 4/5 favorite in the $30,000 Open Trot with Brett Miller in the bike. He showed his customary speed from the onset and took the early initiative through a quarter in 27.1 and a half-mile in 56.1. At that point, the favorite faced a challenge from the Ron Burke trained mare, Handover Belle, making her second start off the layoff. She pressed the tempo with Appomattox drafting in the pocket throughout. Tag Up And Go sat second over on the far turn, followed by Modest Price, who fanned wide through three-quarters of 1:24.2 while commencing a rally. But as the field of open trotters straightened away in the stretch, it was clear this race belonged to Odds On Amethyst as he opened up on the field at will, winning by open lengths in 1:52.3. Appomattox was able to save the runner-up spot, while Modest Prince rallied to be third. Odds On Amethyst is owned by Diamond Creek Racing and trained by Jimmy Takter. He is nominated to the Arthur J. Cutler Memorial, which kicks off the Championship Meet at the Meadowlands, with the eliminations on Saturday, May 9th and the Final on Saturday, May 16th. The supporting feature was the $25,000 Dash For The "G" Notes Final for filly and mare pacers. The race featured plenty of early action, with HS Open Waters reaching the quarter in 27.3, but Smokin N Grinin quickly grabbed the lead between calls, but yielded to Top Brand at the half-mile in 55 seconds. Brownsville Bomber came up to challenge the leader and took over past three quarters in a strong 1:22.4. That mare was quickly engaged by Crazy On You, who grabbed the lead in mid-stretch, but stumbled and went off-stride as both Beach Granny and Ballineen went by. Those two mares sprinted to the wire together with Ballineen nosing out Beach Granny on the wire in 1:52.1. Crazy On You was off-stride through the finish and was disqualified and placed ninth. Brownsville Bomber finished fourth and was placed third. Ballineen was driven by Scott Zeron for trainer Steve Elliot and owner Ernest Hartman. The win by Ballineen sent two lucky fans on a trip to Jamaica. The Meadowlands ran a promotion in which 10 customers were selected and each given a horse in the eighth race. The customer with the winning horse would win a trip for two to Jamaica. That winner was Brenton Rousey of Lawrence Harbor, N.J., who was just as excited to be cashing the winning exacta ticket and wrapped up his interview by exclaiming "The Big M is number one!" The GSY Amateur Series continued on Friday night and this week it was the Robert Krivelin show as he scored a driving double winning both $8,000 events with Current Crisis and Permanent Joy. Krivelin finished second in both amateur trotting events the previous week and has taken a commanding lead in the early part of the series. Hannah Miller had a good showing, finishing second with Jacks To Open and fourth with Rev It Now. The driving stars on the program were Jim Marohn Jr. and Scott Zeron, both scoring driving triples on the card. The fifth race Jackpot Super Hi-Five went unclaimed with multiple winning tickets connecting. That carryover will be $61,472 into the Saturday program. The last race Super Hi-Five also had multiple winning tickets, resulting in a carryover of $11,841 into 12th race on the Saturday program, which begins at 7:15 P.M. Meadowlands Signal Restored to Mid-Atlantic Customers Simulcast Impasse blacking out The Meadowlands signal has come to an end The simulcast dispute that had prohibited certain bettors from wagering on The Meadowlands has been resolved.  Effective tonight, Friday, March 27, 2015, those customers who wager at Mid-Atlantic sites will be able to bet into the largest pools in harness racing once again. “First and foremost I want to apologize to our customers who have been unable to partake in The Meadowlands product these past four months,” said General Manager/C.E.O. Jason Settlemoir.  “We are very thankful that this impasse has come to an end and we appreciate our customers sticking with us through this difficult time.  We thank them for being fans of The Meadowlands and are elated that they will be able to wager into our pools again.” “We have worked hard over these past few months to do our best at The Meadowlands to help resolve this dispute,” said Meadowlands Chairman Jeff Gural.  “It was very unfortunate, and we are very sorry that so many people were affected and essentially blacked out from wagering on our product.  We are hopeful that with this impasse being lifted they are eager to return to wagering on the world’s greatest harness racing.  We thank them for their continuous support.” Darin Zoccali

The $2.4 million winner Put On A Show will be part of the show during the fall harness racing and sale scene in Lexington when her first foal, a filly by Somebeachsomewhere, will be sold at the Lexington Selected Sale at the Fasig-Tipton Pavilion. Bob Boni's Northwood Bloodstock Agency will offer the filly, named Beach Showoff, in its consignment. Northwood Bloodstock is returning to Lexington after a one-year absence. "I'm thrilled to return to Lexington with this filly as a featured attraction," said Boni. "Arrangements have been made for the yearling filly to be prepped at Diamond Creek Farm in nearby Paris, Ky., so yearling shoppers visiting the farms in the Bluegrass will have the opportunity to see her before the sale." Richard Young, Joanne Young and Craig Henderson campaigned Put On A Show and still own the mare as well as Beach Showoff. "This maternal family is so strong; the great ones are all fillies," said Young of Put On A Show's dam, the Artsplace mare Stienam's Place, a winner of $1.4 million and a granddaughter of $1.3 million winner Stienam. "From a filly pacer standpoint, you can't beat the breeding." Beach Showoff was foaled at Hanover Shoe Farms and has continued to reside there, as does her dam. Young said he plans to ship Beach Showoff to Diamond Creek in June so she will have plenty of time to be ready to show off for yearling buyers. Last fall Young sold his top pacing filly I Luv The Nitelife to Diamond Creek. Northwood Bloodstock Agency
