Hightstown, NJ --- Hall of Fame harness racing broodmare Country Kay Sue, the dam of 1995 Horse of the Year CR Kay Suzie, died Monday (Jan. 15) in Ocala, Fla., owner Rod Allen said today. She was 32. Country Kay Sue was limited to nine lifetime races because of injuries, but made her name as a broodmare. In addition to being the dam of CR Kay Suzie, she produced CR Renegade, who counted the 1999 Breeders Crown for 3-year-old male trotters among his stakes wins. Both were homebreds by Royal Troubador, the Allen family’s Dan Patch Award-winning colt and later stallion. Last August, on Hambletonian Day at the Meadowlands, Country Kay Sue was found in the maternal line of four horses competing on the card --- Allen’s filly Dream Baby Dream in the Hambletonian Oaks and Dover Dan in the Hambletonian plus Cufflink Hanover and Italian-born Tuonoblu Rex in the Open. “If there can be such a thing as good timing in a situation like this, she might have had it,” Allen said. “She had more of her offspring racing at the Grand Circuit level last year, so it was kind of fitting. “We stuck it out with that family for a long time. I was criticized at times for it, with people saying it was more for sentimental reasons, but it really worked out.” Country Kay Sue, a daughter of Speedy Somolli out of Pams Key, was purchased for $25,000 under the name Molli Pam by Allen and his father, Carl. She was renamed after Rod’s daughter, Kaylie Suzanne. She actually was the second horse named in Kaylie’s honor; the first, Country Kaylie, was sold. “She was upset because we sold her horse,” Allen said. “My dad said we were going to buy another horse and we would never sell her. And she never left the farm.” Country Kay Sue was inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame in 2001.

Millstone, NJ--- Hall of Fame broodmare Flat Foot Fluzy died Thursday (Jan. 4) in New Jersey, equine surgeon Dr. Patty Hogan, the wife of harness racing owner Ed Lohmeyer, said. Flat Foot Fluzy was 31. Lohmeyer bred Flat Foot Fluzy, a daughter of Direct Scooter out of Quinella Blue Chip, with William Simon, who was Secretary of the Treasury during the Nixon and Ford administrations. Simon, who enjoyed success as a co-owner of Lohmeyer-trained multiple-stakes-winner Landslide, and Lohmeyer had bought Flat Foot Fluzy’s dam with the intentions of getting into the breeding business. Flat Foot Fluzy’s career on the racetrack was cut short by injury as a 2-year-old, but she made her mark as a broodmare. Her first foal, a son of Albert Albert named Pacific Rocket, was a Dan Patch Award winner who earned $2.33 million lifetime. Overall, Flat Foot Fluzy was the dam of 12 horses, of which five earned six figures. Those horses included Pacific Titan, who won 32 races and $800,072, and Pacific Missile, who won 32 races and $378,797. Flat Foot Fluzy was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2002. “She was nasty,” Lohmeyer said about Flat Foot Fluzy in the 2014 book Standardbred Old Friends. “She’d put her ears down the back of her neck, wanted to bite, she wanted her own space. I don’t think she liked anybody. But oh boy, was she a great-gaited filly. She had an effortless, long gait that covered a lot of ground. “She’s a big part of my life. She’s been around a long time and was the start of my being able to breed some nice horses.” In recent years, Flat Foot Fluzy’s favorite companion was Keystone Wallis, the grandam of Always A Virgin. The two shared a paddock for eight years until Keystone Wallis’ passing seven months ago, June 4, 2017. by Ken Weingartner, USTA Media Relations Manager 

Durham Park Stud today issued a media release informing of the sad passing of 2017 Australian harness racing three-year-old filly of the year, Petacular. Durham Park confirmed the Breeders Crown champion was euthanized after breaking a cannon bone while spelling in the paddock. Owner and breeder Bruce Edward was devastated. “It’s an absolute shame, but after discussions with the surgeons at Ballarat Veterinary Practice we decided it was unfair on the mare to put her through a complex operation and six to eight months of recovery in a box with expected complications for a low chance of recovery,” Mr Edward said. During her racing career Petacular won 19 races and had seven placings from 26 starts for earnings of $454,083, including Group 1 wins in the two-year-old Empire Stallions Vicbred Super Series Final and the Woodlands Stud Breeders Crown 3YO Fillies Final. She will also be remembered for her four brave second placings in Group 1 finals, including the Empire Stallions Vicbred Super Series 3YO Fillies Final, the Victorian Oaks, the NSW Oaks and the 2YO Fillies Breeders Crown Final. Mr Edward said Petacular would have gone on to be “an important broodmare at Durham Park Stud”. Re-live Petacular's memorable 3YO Fillies Breeders Crown victory At trainer/driver Michael Stanley’s request Petacular was buried on his farm. The Stanley stable issued a statement today, which read: “It is with much regret and a tremendously heavy heart that I inform the racing industry of the tragic loss of our beautiful, brave mare Petacular (Bonnie). "Whilst spelling, she had a freak accident in the paddock. Petacular was dearly loved by all involved at the Stanley Stable and will be deeply missed, particularly  by Mick, who shared a very special bond with her, as did her best friend RoRo (Soho Angel). She was treated like the Queen and she knew herself that she was so special. "We would like to acknowledge Bruce Edward and the and the PETstock Racing Syndicate for entrusting her in our care. Every moment with Bonnie was a pleasure and we are privileged to have been a part of her life. Thank you for everything BonBon. RIP big girl”. Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) extends sincere condolences to all involved with Petacular. Fans are continuing to send tributes to the filly on social media.

Gippsland trots stalwart Roly Thompson died last Monday after a battle with illness, a fortnight short of his 91st birthday. Roly was a friend to all in local harness racing and had an active involvement in the sport in Gippsland for many years. I last saw Roly about four weeks ago when I visited him to find out more about his interest and involvement in trotting - that day he told me that "harness racing saved his life", as it gave him something to focus on after his wife passed away in the early 1980s. Roly became involved in the Latrobe Valley (Traralgon) Trotting Club when introduced to the sport by club committeeman Max McMahon. Roly later served as a committeeman at the club, trained as a club steward, and also worked as timekeeper at the Traralgon gallops meetings. As an active volunteer with Traralgon, he spent many hours assisting with track preparation and attending state meetings with then President Stan Bonighton in an effort to improve the fortunes of trotting in the Latrobe Valley, and experienced many frustrations as the eastern outpost battled for survival. Roly also related that Bonighton used to get him "to find the bloke who had travelled the furthest with a horse, and bring him upstairs for a cup of tea and a sandwich" as a small token of appreciation for those who often travelled hundreds of kilometres to compete at Traralgon. After Traralgon did fold in the mid 1990s Roly continued to work as a Club Steward at local trots meetings and trials - his support of Warragul saw him awarded a Life Membership of the Warragul and District Light Harness Club over a decade ago. He also arranged, without the desire for recognition, that the Traralgon Pacing Cup trophy be paid for each year to keep the memory of that chapter of harness racing alive. Roly later moved from Morwell to Carrum Downs with his partner Bev, but continued to attend trots meetings at Warragul and Cranbourne, and also travelled the state for many years catching up with friends at the trots, particularly in the members' at Moonee Valley and at the Mildura Cup Carnival. He was particularly proud of the fact that he and Bev once attended every Victorian Country Cup meeting in a single season, such was their interest in harness racing. Kyle Galley

One of New Zealand's most popular ever racehorses has passed away with a record that may never be matched. Tiny pacing hero turned stallion Courage Under Fire died in Australia yesterday where he was standing at Yirribee Stud in New South Wales. He would have turned 22 on Tuesday. While he was a very commercial stallion who sired recently-retired Inter Dominion champion Smolda, it is as the Mighty Mouse of pacing that Courage Under Fire will be best remembered. He won his first 24 starts, being unbeaten at two and three, that classic season including a record six Derby victories. It is doubtful any galloper would ever have contested six Derbys and very few harness horses probably have either, let alone winning them all. So his rarest of places in racing history would seem to be Courage Under Fire's alone forever. The Derbys were part of a 41-win career from 56 starts that saw him amass $1,551,941 in stakes after starting his career in New Zealand with Bruce Negus and then being transferred to champion NSW trainer Brian Hancock after a sensational failure in the 2000 Inter Dominion in Melbourne. Courage Under Fire suffered his first defeat in a heat of that series, prompting Moonee Valley commentator Dan Milecki to yell "the world must be ending" as Kyema Kid surged past Courage Under Fire. While the world survived, Courage Under Fire's career plateaued by his earlier standards and he was never as dominant as an older horse, winning a series of good races but never one of the great ones. He was narrowly beaten in both a Miracle Mile and Victoria Cup and fourth in an Inter Dominion Final but picked up Grand Circuit races like the South Australia Cup, Queensland Pacing Champs and Australian Pacing Champs. He came back to the pack because while he was a pacing machine at three he never got much stronger or faster, forever looking a fast teenager racing grown men. But as a three-year-old he captured the racing -- and some non-racing -- public's imagination in a golden era that also saw Christian Cullen and Lyell Creek draw huge fan bases. The other two were better older horses, albeit all too briefly in Christian Cullen's case, but Courage Under Fire's size endeared him to race fans, his little legs whirling like a cartoon character when he was at full speed. Off the track he was a little softy. "He loved people and was the loveliest little horse to have around," says original trainer Negus. "He had so many fans and when little kids came up to him to pat him, which happened all the time, he would lower his head down so they could get to him. "Once, when Brian Hancock was training him, they couldn't find Brian's six-year-old granddaughter and they were all panicking. "They couldn't believe it when they found her in Courage's paddock and she was patting him as he nuzzled her. This was when he was a seven-year-old stallion, he was just such a gentleman." So did training a racing icon change Negus's career or even life? "It definitely helped my career because we had a lot of good horses, many for his owner Greg Brodie after Courage left the stable. "But it also changed my life. I met so many people and was once asked to speak at a racing awards dinner because I was the guy who trained Courage Under Fire. "I met my wife Colleen at that function, so I owe Courage more than he would ever have known." Reprinted with permission of New Zealand Herald

Claudius Augustus, t,5 ,1:53.3m, $305,889 out of the Speedy Claude mare, Claudes Last Lady succumbed to colic this past week. Bred and raised by the late Dr.Gary Budahn and his wife Debra, Claudius made his mark not only on the harness racing track but also in the breeding shed in California and Minnesota. Whether racing from behind or on the front end, Claudius showed his grit and speed appearing in the winner’s circle 28 times out of 74 lifetime starts. Along with his laid back temperament, Claudius passed on his traits to his offspring, making him a favorite in California while standing stud. With outstanding Sires stakes champions, My Little Susie t,3 1:56.4f $75,363 and Cadet t,4 1:56.4m $38,796, Sandy’s Song t,4 1:57.4 $58,956.  Keeping him in the family, Claudius was shipped to Nancy and Larry Jenson of Iowa to stand in the now rising Minnesota sires stakes. Nancy is the sister to the late Dr. Gary Budahn. Ironically, Cal Expo in Sacramento, California is hosting the Gary Budahn series this week with the final racing this friday in memory of the veterinarian who not only had many outstanding horses racing in California but was a top track vet for over 35 years along with being a CHHA president for many years.

Former harness racing warhorse Karloo Mick passed away on Tuesday afternoon. Often referred to as 'The People's Champion' or the 'Dubbo Destroyer', 'Mick' as he was called at home was humanely euthanized after suffering from a suspected brain aneurysm. Naturally owners Barry and Ronda Lew are devastated. "I came home from the farm yesterday afternoon and Mick was crook in the paddock," Barry stated. "I called the vet straight away and apparently he had a brain aneurysm. "He was suffering so at 6pm we decided it was best to put him down. "We just buried him (Wednesday) standing up as warhorses don't lie down. "He is buried with all of his harness on including his shadow roll and Murphy blind." Karloo Mick ran his last race at Tabcorp Park Menangle on January 26, 2013, which he won. Yet even though he has not raced in all this time, 'Mick' still had his fans. "Just two weeks ago people from Victoria flew to Newcastle then hired a car and drove all the way to Dubbo just to see Mick," Ronda said. "They knew everything about him and that was Mick, he was the people's horse. "Just yesterday he was galloping around in the paddock with a young horse so it is hard to believe this has happened. "Barry lay with him until he took his last breath . . . the horse just loved Barry. "Mick is buried in our backyard facing the house so will be with us forever. "He was a great horse that was part of the family." Karloo Mick had many great achievements in his career which spanned from when he was three until he was a 12-year-old. Passing away just over a day shy of turning 16, Karloo Mick raced in all the major races and even came close to winning a Miracle Mile in 2011 when finishing second to Smoken Up. He won an Inter Dominion Consolation at Globe Derby in 2007 and two years later finished third in an Inter Dominion Final behind the likes of Mr Feelgood and Blacks A Fake. Racing against the best of them, Karloo Mick had 159 starts in Australia for 64 wins and 59 placings, earning $1,493,155 in stakes. He also raced twice in New Zealand which included his win in the Group Two Ashburton Flying Stakes.   AMANDA RANDO

"It has been a great experience to work with Chris VanBussel and now the third generation of the VanBussel family, for all of these years. I'm proud of the job that Seelster Farms has done with Camluck and the contribution Camluck made to the breeding industry. Not just in Ontario, but his sons and daughters can be considered amongst the best in the world." “The legacy of Camluck will live on for generations to come in the offspring he continues to influence with his determination and intelligence,” said Ann Straatman for Seelster Farms. “What the pedigree pages cannot say is what a privilege it has been to care for Camluck all of these years and how much we will miss our friend.” from Seelster Farms
