September 2, 2017 - An excellent afternoon of trotting accompanied a three day Food Truck Festival an Kincsem Park and it drew a fine audience, also on the Friday night twilight harness racing program. Saturday was highlighted by the Josef Marschall Memorial (purse 6Huf million, or US$23,300, 1800 meters autostart) and victory went to 1.13.9kr timed Rapido OK (7g Ganymede-Movida OK-Indro Park) handled by trainer Josef Franzl.

Great day in Hungary for Franzl. Urilany R was second for Veljko Mazsity and Villam Ville (3b Beissinger Hanover) took the third spot for driver/trainer Imre Fazekas. The Istvan Szegedy Memorial for open trotters was contested over 1900 meters autostart for the 1.2Huf million purse and the 1.15.4kr winner was Underpaid Hanover (8m Revenue-Up Front Lisa-Lindy Lane) trained by Jozsef Rutkai and driven by Imre Fazekas. He rallied to lead and hold off Donato Luca (8m Donerail-High Weeds-Tagliabue) driven by Hugo Langeweg Jr. for trainer Csaba Lakatos. Local stalwart Milliondollar Lux (11m Ganymede-Dedaumpa Jet-Supergill) was third for driver/trainer Emil Csordas, the game pacesetter. Other noteworthy winners on the card were Henrik Ibsen AT (5m Worship) for trainer/driver Tibor Hajnal timed in 1.16.6kr over 1800 meters autostart in the 600,000Huf purse Laszlo Fekete Memorial. Urania RG and Rocket Boy were next across the line.

After a good day on Friday, Sept 1 the American harness racing amatuers faltered somewhat to the Hungarians on Saturday. The best Hungarian amateur driver, Ms. Andrea Fazekas (Sunny) spoiled the party. Bob Davis ( Nubia) found the front ahead of Paul Minore (Primusz) and then out popped the Hungarians riding shotgun. Andrea sat chilly and second over until she needed to blast around a tiring Bob Davis. Too late for Paul to treat us to a driving double and a solid win. Andrea was first, A Gaspar (Ors)was second and Paul Minore captured the third money with Peter Kleinhans (Red Stone) fourth. The ten American starters in the two races faced a total of fourteen Hungarians. The calculation had to have a curve applied to the European system we use, making the total 77 USA to 59 Hungary. But who cares who won or lost? A great time was had by all. The Hungarians have a great race track here and super barn area about 1000 meters long with clay roofs and cupolas atop each barn. The one thousand meters of barn area are in rows of two so count 2000 meters of barn area. There is a jogging track in the woods, four main tracks, two trotting tracks and two for t-breds; one grass, one dirt with the latter also used for the greyhounds. You can't hear these horses going over this piece of dirt and shows that only competitive races count, not speed and creature comforts, which are so important if just made available. In Italy it was a disco and free food that created the renaissance. Here there is a big crowd of young and old, children of all ages, picnic benches and food trucks to feed an army. Also some adult beverages. Giving people what makes them happy is important. The big race of the day(Saturday) was the Marshall Jozsef Emlekverseny for 6,000,000 Hungarian Fortins; nearly $ 24,000 US. That race was won by Rapido OK driven by Germany's Josef Franzl . The evening ended with presentations and the US extending an invite (for 2018 or 2019) to our Hungarian friends, through club Rep Tomas Keleman. The invite will be for four drivers, club reps and guests. All in all, we were treated like royalty and we look forward to return the amenities when we host our Hungarian friends in the near future. by Joe Faraldo with John Manzi  

After waiting on Greyhound and T- bred races the main harness racing event on the card at this 1200 meter sand track pitted Paul Minore (Sholty Geri ) against the Hungarian perennial champ Andrea Nagyvary steering the heavy favorite.(Oaklahoma Font). However, things turned out to favor Paul when Ferenc Leanyfalvi (Prodigy Gasti) decided to fight it out on the front end. And one couldn't take issue with Ferenc whose steed had not been worse than second on the card.   On this day we raced the wrong way, something not only the drivers had to compensate for but so did the horses. Perhaps racing the wrong way helped the US driving team as did the deepness along the rail.. After observing the dueling up front and steering around some traffic Paul tipped off the last turn and when he popped the ear plugs there was no doubt about what the outcome was sure to be. Joe Faraldo with Rozsakert, a Wall Street Banker gelding worked hard to catch the place but had to settle for third. Andrea's steed hung on the be second.   All and all a good day for team USA which started out at the famed Budapest baths where team American chilled out in over ten different pools containing assorted minerals, swam laps in an Olympic size pool and took in the steam and sauna rooms like civilized people do in Budapest.   The track has a three day food truck show and families with children and pets roamed to their hearts content while the adults feasted on various meats, fish, pastries and adult beverages. Kincsem Park has better demographics than most American track operators on non major stakes events days and the attendance proves it.   Tomorrow there will be harness races exclusively, and the competitors will race, what in North America, is the right way (counter-clockwise). It will be the final race in the two-country competition.Team American will once again will look to Paul and his mates to bring home the bacon. Fingers are crossed.   The video of the race at Kincsem Park in Budapest is included herein. by Joe Faraldo, with John Manzi

Five members of the North American Amateur Drivers Association are in Budapest, Hungary getting ready to clash with the harness racing Hungarian Amateurs in a race on Friday, (Sept. 1) and one on Saturday,(Sept. 2) The team consisting of Joe Faraldo, Alan Schwartz, Peter Kleinhans, Paul Minore and Bob Davis arrived in Budapest on Monday and are the guests of their counterparts and prior to the competition they have been treated to the wonders and history of Hungary. Below is from NAADA team leader, Joe Faraldo. "Buda, the earlier settled portion of this city established in 1245, was named after Attila the Hun's brother, and was joined with Pest a town on the other side of the beautiful Danube to become the capitol city of a Budapest. We are not in The Grand Budapest Hotel since it only exists in the movies. We landed in the Hotel Budapest safe and sound on Monday morning. Treated to a welcome dinner the first night by the Hungarian's team leader and an old friend Tamas Keleman. "Godollo castle was the first stop on Tuesday. A detailed tour was arranged and our guide whose knowledge of the castle and history of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was exceptional in every detail, made the tour much more meaningful. After that we were off to The Lazar Equistrian Park which is 35 km from Budapest, in the heart of Domonyvolgy and is owned by the coach driving champions Vilmos and Zoltan Lazar. "The resort nestles among the picturesque lakes of the Godollo Hills and is home to the champion carriage horses in Europe. There are two trophy rooms and the Lazar brothers have won enough events to pack those rooms to the ceiling. The obstacle courses these men steer their four charges through against the clock demands very high talented driving skills . No wonder the horsemanship demonstrated there made us feel just a bit inferior as these pros, schooled, no doubt by the brothers, teamed four at high speeds while perched standing atop two in the second row. At other times riders performed fetes with horses that must have taken years to perfect. Just getting them used to the crack of bull whips above their heads, to sitting them down on their bottoms was amazing. "The Park also has an excellent restaurant and from there a trip to the "Las Vegas" casino, a stop at the Buda Palace and a nitecap at the Gresham Palace topped off the eve of the all important draw for the Friday and Saturday's races in the Hungarian American Friendship competition. "In Hungary there are only 500 trotters in the entire country but their industry is hard at work with features surrounding the races. Food trucks, entertainment for kids and adults and beer, plenty of beer. by Joe Faraldo with John Manzi

For the second time in as many months members of the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA) will be traveling to Europe to again compete in an International Friendship Competition this time against their harness racing counterparts from Hungary. Races are slated at Kincsem Park in Budapest in early September. "It's been over 25 years since NAADA has competed in Hungary, which by the way, was the site of the World Cup of Amateur Racing last year," noted NAADA president, Joe Faraldo. "In those races Hannah Miller was the overall point leader until the final day of competition when the Italian amateur finished just one point better than her total. Still, a second place finish among the 12 participating countries was the best showing ever by an American in the prestigious World Cup of Amateur Racing." Although the upcoming races in Budapest can't be compared to the World Cup events still the participants are excited about the competition. Those competing for team USA will be Alan Schwartz (586 career wins), Peter Kleinhans ( 54 wins) Bob Davis (30 wins) and Paul Minore (89 wins) along with team leader, Joe Faraldo (143 wins), who won three races abroad-- including one at Vincennes in Paris-- when the Americans recently competed on European soil in both France and Italy. But the Hungarians will be no pushover. Among their drivers is Andrea Fazekas, one of the top amateurs in Hungary, and for that matter, in all of Europe. (she is pictured here driving her father's Ollyan Nincs winning a Free For All trot at Kincsem Park) Supplying support for Ms. Fazekas in the upcoming Friendship Competition will probably be Andrea Naqyvari, Tamas Bencze, Viktoria Kelemen, Sandor Hegedus, and Tamas Tanczer According to Budapest Trotting Association president Karog Kotun, they have a wonderful facility at Kincsem Park where there are three tracks; one at 1200 meters for the harness races, along with a dirt and turf course for the thoroughbreds. Karoj and his team also have a fine website as does their racetrack Kincsem Park: Action and/or further news can be followed on the following webites by John Manzi for NAADA
