ANDERSON, Ind.-July 25, 2014 - While she may have played the bridesmaid in her first start against stakes company, Im The Real Lady found the winner's circle when it mattered most as she shined in the featured event, the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for two-year-old pacing fillies, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, July 25. With driver Peter Wrenn at the lines, Im The Real Lady was able to overcome a tough, first-over trip to score the second win of her career in a lifetime best performance of 1:54.3. Leaving from the coveted rail position, Im The Real Lady was eased off the gate to settle along the rail in fifth while the rest of the field sorted out early positions. Trace Tetrick had Flight Cancelled dialed in as he sent her to the front through an opening panel in :28.4. Shady Linds and Ed Hensley were well placed In The Pocket while Aristobrat Hanover and Tyler Smith found good, early position third along the rail from post nine. Flight Cancelled dictated fractions of :58.1 and 1:26.4 before ever feeling pressure from the rest of the field. Unable to wait any longer, Wrenn gave Im The Real Lady the green light heading into the final turn and they began their long first-over journey to the front with Ashok Ace and Lewayne Miller in tow. The field began to tighten as they rounded the final turn and it was a cavalry charge to the wire. With the even money favorite Feetonthedashboard and Dale Hiteman making a costly break around the final turn, the race appeared to be wide open. Im The Real Lady had reached the leader's wheel half-way down the stretch and dug in gamely to put a nose in front at the wire. Flight Cancelled held on for the second place honors while Aristobrat Hanover took advantage of a ground saving trip to round out the trifecta. Sent off at odds of 4-1, Im The Real Lady returned $10.00 at the betting window. "The trip wasn't perfect but she was on her game tonight," Wrenn noted after the win. "She's a pretty handy little filly that is just starting to learn how to race and come into her own." Trained and Owned by Perry Smith, the daughter of Real Desire-Hysterical Lady has now won two of three career starts while amassing $47,100 in career earnings. Im The Real Lady won her career debut at Hoosier Park and followed that performance up with a second place finish in her elimination round of the Indiana Sires Stakes action last week. Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will continue on Saturday, July 26 with a 14-race card highlighted by the $22,000 Invitational Pace. With a daily post time of 5:15 p.m., the live racing schedule will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 15. by Emily Gaskin, for Hoosier Park

ANDERSON, Ind.-July 24, 2014 - Freshman pacing colts were in the spotlight at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Thursday, July 24 in the second round of Indiana Sires Stakes action but the night belonged to trainer Jeff Cullipher and driver Sam Widger. The Cullipher-Widger duo teamed up to score in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for two-year-old pacing colts with Toni's Affection in 1:51.4 and then just a few races later in the $25,000 consolation for two-year-old pacing colts with Ima Full Time Job in 1:52.3. Cullipher sent out three of the ten entries in the $75,000 final from his stable and in the end it was Toni's Affection prevailing in a hard fought battle to the wire. Stablemates Harfo Hanover and Mr. Julian finished second and fifth, respectively. Leaving from post two, Widger sent Toni's Affection away from the gate just enough to secure an early position along the rail in second. Camturo Rock and Dave Magee would get the first call through the opening panel in :26.3 but quickly yielded the lead to the post time favorite, Freaky Feet Pete and Trace Tetrick. Freaky Feet Pete carved out fractions of :55 and 1:23.3 before feeling a threat by Skyway Dante and Peter Wrenn who were On The Attack first-over. As the field turned for home, Freaky Feet Pete began to labor on the front with the rest of the field closing in. Camturo Rock surged from the pocket to take a short lead but was unable to hold off the hard charging Toni's Affection. Toni's Affection utilized a :27.4 final quarter to win by a head in a lifetime best effort. Camturo Rocked finished second but was placed third after a judge's disqualification in the stretch leaving Harfo Hanover and Tyler Smith to inherit the second place honors. Slightly dismissed at the betting window, Toni's Affection returned $18.40 to his backers. "This is the toughest group of Indiana-bred two-year-old pacing colts that I've ever seen," Cullipher noted after the victory. "I've always had faith in this colt though, he has been the perfect horse to train all winter and I had a lot of confidence in him tonight." "This is just amazing," he continued. "His namesake was here tonight and everything worked out for us. He is a nice, nice colt." Toni's Affection was a $19,000 Harrisburg Yearling Sale purchase and was later re-named after co-owner David Lewis Linker's wife. Linker co-owns the son of Always A Virgin-Yankee Affection with Thomas Pollack. Toni's Affection has now amassed $71,250 from four lifetime starts for his connections. Pollack and Linker would find the winner's circle once more with the Cullipher-Widger duo this time in the $25,000 Indiana Sires Stakes consolation for two-year-old pacing colts with Ima Full Time Job in 1:52.3 who is owned in tandem by the partnership of Randall Bendis, David Linker and Thomas Pollack. In much the same fashion, Widger had Ima Full Time Job forwardly place through hot opening fractions of :26.1 and :55.1 set by the heavily favored Kelly D and Trace Tetrick. When the field hit the three quarter mark in 1:24.4, Kelly D was clinging to the lead while the rest of the field closed in. Widger was able to find the late racing room he needed in the stretch and Ima Full Time Job did the rest. Using a :27.3 final quarter, Ima Full Time Job coasted home a winner to finish a length in front of Rockin Jimmy and Lewayne Miller. Much like his stablemate a few races earlier, Ima Full Time Job was slightly dismissed at the betting window and returned $17.20 for the win. "This colt may be the sleeper," Cullipher noted after the race. "He's had some bad racing luck with post positions and trips earlier in the season but take nothing away from him, he's a nice colt." It was a maiden breaking victory for the son of I Scoot Hanover-Mother Alberta in just his fourth career start. The freshman colt has now earned $50,350 for his connections. Indiana Sires Stakes action returns to Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, July 25 with the second of five $75,000 finals for the two-year-old pacing filly division.

ANDERSON, Ind.-July 23, 2014-Special JJ kept her flawless freshman record intact using a perfectly timed rally late in the stretch to score in the featured attraction, the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for two-year-old trotting fillies, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Wednesday, July 23. With a final time of 1:57, it was a lifetime best performance and third victory of the season for Special JJ. Leaving from post two in the field of ten, Special JJ and driver Trent Stohler were away a worrisome seventh while the heavily favored Crunchess Finale and Darrell Wright made their customary move to the front. Crunchess Finale made an uncharacteristic break through the opening panel in :27.2 leaving Diamond Dagger and Thomas Russell to inherit the lead. Peter Wrenn sent Sloane Elise to the front through the half-mile time in :58.2 but would quickly yield the top spot to Churita and Trace Tetrick. Churita continued to call the shots as the field approached the final turn but was feeling pressure from Golden Big Stick and Brad Hanners on the outside. As the field hit the third station in 1:28.1, the top pair was stride for stride turning for home. Churita was able to put away Golden Big Stick halfway down the stretch but her biggest threat was still behind her. Just as Stohler found late racing room, Special JJ found another gear. Using a :28 final panel, Special JJ powered home to get the win by a head. Churita made a costly break just before the wire and was placed third leaving Golden Big Stick to inherit the second place honors. Slightly dismissed by the betting public at 5-1, Special JJ returned $13.60 at the betting window. "She's done everything we've asked of her so far," Stohler noted after the victory. "We've taken our time getting her ready. She's still learning and figuring things out but does know how to win." Trained by Trent Stohler, who also co-owns the filly with The Kales Company, Special JJ now sports a lifetime bankroll of $52,100 for her connections. The daughter of Jailhouse Jesse-Rhonda T was also victorious in the $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes elimination just last week at Hoosier Park. With the win, Special JJ also earned points for the $200,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Super Finals slated for October 18 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. The Indiana Sires Stakes program will culminate with the top ten point earners from the previous $75,000 finals in each division returning to compete in the super finals.

ANDERSON, Ind.-July 22, 2014 - Freshman trotting colts were the featured attraction at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in the second round of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals on Tuesday, July 22. After a costly break in the first $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final at Hoosier Park, Airman Batten and Lewayne Miller rebounded nicely to score in 1:57 and make a clean sweep of the second round of the stakes action. Last week, Airman Batten made quick work of his $20,000 elimination to score in 2:00.3 and secure his spot in the $75,000 final. In a field ruled by miscues, Airman Batten was eased off the gate this week from post six to settle along the rail in fifth while the field sorted out early positions. Summit City Nate and Sam Widger were the quickest off the gate and dictated early fractions of :27.4 and :58.3. Victory Blitz and Andy Shetler were well placed In The Pocket while Homicide Hunter and John DeLong followed intently in third. Summit City Nate continued to call the shots down the backside but yielded the lead to Homicide Hunter at third station in 1:28.1. With most of the field breaking stride, it was a four horse race to the finish with Homicide Hunter leading the charge. Using a :28.2 final quarter, Airman Batten saved his best for last as he staged a big rally late in the lane to wear down the tiring leader. Homicide Hunter trotted evenly to finish second while Summit City Nate held on gamely to round out the trifecta. As the 6-5 favorite, Airman Batten returned $4.60 to his backers at the window. Trained by Erv Miller, the son of Swan For All-Ladylike Volo has now won three of four career starts. Airman Batten set a lifetime record with the 1:57 score and has now amassed $66,500 for his connections of Paymaq Racing, Harvey Eisman, and Greg Gillis.

Four new Indiana Sires Stakes champions were crowned on the evening that featured the first of five rounds of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals for the freshman competitors and the second round of the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals for the three-year-old divisions. It was Hoosier Park's leading driver, Trace Tetrick, who stole the show with five winners on the evening's 14-race card, four of which came in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals. In the opening division of the two-year-old stakes action, Crunchess Finale and Darrel Wright continued their winning ways to score their third consecutive victory in the $75,000 two-year-old trotting filly final with a 1:58 final time. Using the same front-running tactics as she has in her previous two starts, Crunchess Finale looked every bit the part of an 8-5 favorite and left alertly from post eight. The freshman filly easily secured the lead and clicked off fractions of :28.3, 1:00, and 1:28.2 before finding another gear. As the field turned for home, the daughter of ABC Garland-Crunchess looked poised on the front and began to trot away from the rest of the field. Using a :28.4 final quarter, Crunchess Finale coasted on to the wire to finish five lengths in front of Golden Big Stick and Brad Hanners. Heavily backed at the window, Crunchess Finale returned $5.40 to her backers. The 1:58 victory was a lifetime best mark for the Dan O'Mara trainee who remains undefeated this season. Owned by Joseph Hess, Crunchess Finale has now earned $50,500 from three lifetime outings. In the very next race, Stickem Buck, driven by Ed Hensley, staged a big rally late in the lane to score his maiden breaking win in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for two-year-old trotting colts in 1:58.2. After a miscue at the start by the heavily favored, Airman Batten the race appeared to be a wide open affair. Flashy Cantab and Trace Tetrick left aggressively to set first half fractions of :29.2 and :59.2 before making a costly break around the final turn. Swan on One and Dave Magee inherited the lead after the break by the front-runner and appeared to be up to the task but Stickem Buck loomed large in the background. Under urging from Hensley, Stickem Buck was able to track down Swan On One in the final strides of the mile to win by a nose. Slightly dismissed at the windows, Stickem Buck returned $12.60 at to his backers. From the first crop of Big Stick Lindy, Stickem Buck is trained by Roger Welch and owned by William C. Delong and William P. Delong. Stickem Buck has now earned $42,500 from two career starts. On the pacing side of the two-year-old stakes action, Hoosier Park's leading driver Trace Tetrick doubled up in both the two-year-old pacing filly final and two-year-old pacing colt final. First, Tetrick guided Flight Cancelled to her second consecutive win as a freshman in the $75,000 pacing filly final with a final time of 1:55. Leaving from the trailing post ten, Flight Cancelled was eased off the gate and settled along the rail in fifth while HeyHey Mahanah and Peter Wrenn carved out first-half fractions of :28.4 and :57.4. Approaching the final turn, Tetrick gave his mount the green light and she reached the leader's wheel at the third station in 1:26. As the field turned for home, the top pair was neck and neck but Flight Cancelled wasn't finished. Using a :28.3 final panel, Flight Cancelled was able to wear down HeyHey Mahanah late in the lane to grind out the victory. As the betting publics' second choice, Flight Cancelled returned $13.00 for the victory. Trained by Steve Carter, Flight Cancelled remains undefeated at two for owners Steve and Tammy Carter. The daughter of Panspacificflight-Goa BB now sports a career bankroll of $37,500 from two lifetime outings. Just a few races later, Tetrick continued his winning ways and scored with Tom Simmon's Kelly D in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for two-year-old pacing colts in 1:52.4. Kelly D remains undefeated at two and equaled the national's season mark for two-year-old pacing colts with the win. Kelly D left aggressively from post two to get the first call in :27.4 but quickly yielded the lead to Harfo Hanover and Ed Hensley. Harfo Hanover led the way through the middle splits of :56.3 and 1:25.2 before feeling pressure on the outside from Camturo Rock and Dave Magee. Harfo Hanover was able to put away Camturo Rock and dug in gamely down the lane but could not hold off Kelly D who exploded from the pocket. With a final quarter in :27, Kelly D finished two lengths in front of the hard-charging Toni's Affection and Sam Widger. As the publics' third choice, Kelly D returned $7.40 at the betting windows.

ANDERSON, Ind.-July 2, 2014 - When Katie Brown sends Mrprsdnt Bluegrass to post on Saturday, July 5 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino it will be a first. Not only is Mrprsdnt Bluegrass the first horse that 20-year-old Katie Brown purchased but it will be the first major stakes race the duo has competed in. Brown, a newcomer to owning harness racing horses, has a chance to win one of the state's most premier stakes-the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers-on July 5 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. Her first purchase, Mrprsdnt Bluegrass, will face nine other rivals in the second round of the Indiana Sires Stakes finals action. Brown, like most young girls her age, was unsure of her next move before beginning work under the guidance of veteran trainer, driver, Joe Putnam during the summer of 2013 but quickly found out what exactly it was she wanted to do. During her time at the Putnam Stable she was introduced gradually but quickly learned the ins and outs of the harness racing industry. When asked about her time spent at the Putnam stable the conversation quickly returns to the 3-year-old chestnut son of Third Straight-Mannart New Start. "My red horse," Brown said with a twinkle in her eye. "I fell in love with him after a week of working there and I knew right then that I wanted to own horses, especially him." "I connected with him instantly," Brown continued. "I wanted to buy him from the minute I started working with him and didn't want anyone else to have him. I didn't know if it would work out or if I would have the opportunity to own him but the day I got the call that I was able to buy him was one of the happiest days ever." Brown, along with her trainer, purchased Mrsprsdnt Bluegrass in 2013 from breeder Luel Overstreet who had the horse in training with Putnam. Mrsprsdnt Bluegrass didn't find the winner's circle for his new connections until 2014 but has won much more than that in the eyes of his owner. "He is the reason I go to the barn in the mornings," Brown noted. "He makes all the early mornings, late nights and hard work worth it. He's just the best." The three-year-old pacer has put together a 9-1-1-1 season while earning $11,701 in 2014. He set a lifetime best of 1:56.2 after a sharp, gate-to-wire effort in his seasonal debut for Brown. In his most recent outing, Mrprsdnt Bluegrass was second in the elimination of the Indiana Sires Stakes on June 28 at Hoosier Park behind If I Lose pacing the mile in 1:53.4.The $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final will be the first big test for Mrpsdnt Bluegrass but his connections say he's ready for it. "I'm already nervous," she said with a smile. "I get so nervous when he races but I'm happy just getting to watch him race and know that he will do it if he can." by Emily Gaskin, for Hooosier Park  

ANDERSON, Ind.-June 28, 2014 - Four divisions of the $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for harness racing three-year-old pacing colts and geldings highlighted the 14-race card at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, June 28.

It was the fourth win of the season and a lifetime best performance for the Gary Hayes trainee. Leaving from post five, Slingshot Shooter landed along the rail in fourth while Sand Gunner and Lewayne Miller got the first call through an opening quarter in :26.2. Peterson wouldn't wait long as he sent Slingshot Shooter to the front.

Slingshot Shooter has finished on the board in five of seven starts while earning $49,125 throughout his sophomore campaign. In the very next race, Speed Trap looked every bit the part of a 4-5 favorite as he staged a big rally late in the lane to put a nose in front of Next Thing Smoke'n in 1:52. Driven by regular driver Ricky Macomber Jr., it was the second consecutive win for Speed Trap and second seasonal win from six starts. As the heavy betting favorite, Speed Trap returned $3.60 to his backers at the window. Leaving from the outside post nine, Speed Trap was uninvolved in the early stages of the race while Next Thing Smoke'n and Peter Wrenn carved out fractions of :27.1, :55.4, and 1:24.

Leaving from the coveted rail position, If I Lose was sent firing from the gate but Mystical Shooter and Lewayne Miller also left alertly to get the first call in :27.1. Tetrick gave If I Lose the green light and the duo rattled off middle fractions of :55.4 and 1:24 before ever feeling a threat.

Kelly D and Trace Tetrick kicked off the evening as they scored their second consecutive victory this year in 1:53.2 in the opening round of the stakes action.

As the field reached the third station, Franzo and Tyler Smith pressed the leader from the outer flow while a host of others began to close in from behind. Tetrick asked the son of Panspacificflight for more and Kelly D found another gear, pacing on to the wire to finish three lengths to the good. Rockin Ron closed nicely to finish second for Ed Hensley while Franzo held on for third. As the heavy betting favorite, Kelly D returned $3.20 at the windows for the victory.

ANDERSON, Ind.-June 26, 2014 -  Hoosier Park played host to a stakes filled card on Thursday, June 26 with five divisions of three-year-old trotting colts and six divisions of two-year-old pacing fillies battling in Indiana Sires Stakes action. It was the second round of stakes action for the three-year-old trotting colts and the opening round for the freshman fillies. After the dust settled on the evening's 14-race card, the track record for three-year-old trotting geldings was equaled and a national season's mark for two-year-old pacers had been established. Can't Touch Her and Tyler Smith stole the show after they recorded the fastest mile of the season for two-year-old pacers, regardless of gender or track size, with a 1:53.3 triumph in their $20,000 division of the stakes action. In near gate-to-wire fashion, Can't Touch Her recorded her third win of the year and a national season's mark in just her fourth career start. Leaving from post two, Smith sent Can't Touch Her away from the gate firing but Image of Felicia and Luke Plano also left alertly to get the first call in :27.4. Opting out of a pocket trip, the Steve Carter trainee took control at the half and dictated fractions of :57.0 and 1:26.1. As the field turned for home, Image of Felicia tipped from the pocket but Can't Touch Her wasn't done. Using a :27.2 final quarter, the daughter of Rockin Image-Can't Quit Smiling paced on to the wire to finish a length in front of Image of Felicia. Rockin Bikini closed well in the late stages of the mile to round out the trifecta for driver Trace Tetrick. As the heavy betting favorite, Can't Touch Her returned $4.40 at the windows. "She always had talent training down this winter but could get a little rough gaited at times," Carter noted after the victory. "We made some adjustments and she trained really well this week so I knew she would be sharp, just not that sharp. Hopefully she can stay good all season." Owned by Steve and Tammy Carter, Can't Touch Her is from the first crop of Rockin Image and the second foal from her dam, Can't Quit Smiling. Can't Touch Her has now won three of four seasonal starts while earning $13,750. On the trotting side of the stakes action, Rose Run Parker continued his winning ways and extended his win streak to 10 after he scored in 1:54.1 in his division of the $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings. Rose Run Parker remains undefeated in his sophomore season and the 1:54.1 victory equaled the track record for three-year-old trotting geldings at Hoosier Park. Driver Ricky Macomber Jr. left no room for error as he sent Rose Run Parker, heavily favored at 1-9, to the front from post three. Justice Jet and Ed Hensley would make the publics' choice work for position but Rose Run Parker pressed on and secured the lead at the half in :58.1. As the field turned for home, Rose Run Parker put his talent on display and began to trot away from the rest of the field. The son of Jailhouse Jesse-Centergy was under wraps at the wire and finished six lengths in front of Gloire Dream and Lewayne Miller. Justice Jet trotted evenly to earn third place honors. Heavily favored at the betting windows, Rose Run Parker returned $2.10 for the victory. The 14-time career winner has now amassed $403,500 for his connections of Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, and W. Haas Jr. Rose Run Parker's ten race win streak includes wins in the first $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old trotting colts and the $45,250 Madison County Stakes last season. With the win, Rose Run Parker has earned his spot in the second of five $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings slated for July 5 at Hoosier Park. Indiana Sires Stakes action continues at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, June 27 with eight divisions of $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for two-year-old pacing colts and four divisions of $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies.

ANDERSON, Ind.-June 21, 2014 - Natural Herbie, with Verlin Yoder at the lines, shattered a nine-year-old track record for older trotting geldings when he powered home a winner in 1:52.4 in the featured event of the evening, a $22,000 Invitational trot, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, June 21. The previous record of 1:53 was established by Hesza Laser and David Miller in 2005 and equaled last week in the very same event by Penn and Brad Hanners. The 1:52.4 score by Natural Herbie was just a fifth of a second off the overall trotting track record, a 1:52.3 mark that was established by Uncle Peter and David Miller in the $200,00 Centaur Trotting Classic last season. The time also marked the fifth track record that has been equaled or lowered over Hoosier Park's seven-eighths mile oval in 2014. Leaving from post three, Natural Herbie was unhurried off the gate and settled along the rail in third. Summer Indian and Ricky Macomber Jr. fired from the gate and landed on top through an opening panel in a snappy :26.4. Somebody As and Ross Leonard benefitted from a pocket trip while Banker Volo followed intently in third. Summer Indian continued to call the shots at the second station in :56.3 but would quickly be joined by Natural Herbie on the outside. Reaching the three-quarter mark in 1:25.1, Natural Herbie had already started his first-over attack and was able to wear down the tiring leader in the final turn. Penn was well placed second over but was no match for Natural Herbie who was strong on the front. Turning for home, Yoder asked his mount for more and Natural Herbie found another gear. Using a :27.3 final panel, Natural Herbie put his talent on display and trotted away from the field, finishing four lengths in front of his competitors. Somebody As trotted evenly to finish second while Penn rounded out the trifecta. As the 3-1 choice, Natural Herbie returned $8.20 to his backers at the window. An Indiana Sires Stakes Champion at both two and three, Natural Herbie is in the midst of another stellar campaign. The four-year-old gelding bested his lifetime mark by a full second with the 1:52.4 score. Sired by Here Comes Herbie, the black gelding has now won four of 11 seasonal starts while bankrolling over $45,960 for owner, trainer, driver Verlin Yoder in 2014. Sporting a career bankroll of $435,441, Natural Herbie has hit the board in 16 of 35 lifetime outings. Live racing returns to Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Tuesday, June 24. The 14-race card will be highlighted by the opening round of the $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes action for two-year-old trotting colts.

ANDERSON, Ind.-June 7, 2014 - Hoosier Park Racing & Casino highlighted the 21st season of live harness racing with the annual Hoosier Champions night in front of a packed house on Saturday, June 7. Four Indiana Sires Stakes champions were crowned on the evening that featured the first of five rounds of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals on the 14-race card. It was a night ruled by favorites as the publics' choice delivered in each of the four divisions. The action-packed night opened with the first $75,000 final for three-year-old trotting fillies and Andi's Alana looked every bit the part of a 1-5 favorite as she overcame a tough, first-over bid to score in 1:56. Driven by Lewayne Miller, Andi's Alana was uninvolved early in the race but used a :28.2 final quarter to score her 11th career victory and remain undefeated in 2014. "She came back really great this year," Miller noted after the race. "She had a great season last year but has grown up in a lot of ways this year. I wasn't sure how the race was going to work out but she raced great, again." Trained by Erv Miller, Andi's Alana has now won 11 of 15 lifetime starts and sports a career bankroll of $379,849 with three Indiana Sires Stakes finals to her credit. The daughter of Swan For All-Its Your Deal has won all three of her starts at three and is owned by Paymaq Racing, Greg Gillis, and Harvey Eisman. Following suit, Candy's A Virgin and Trace Tetrick delivered as the 7-5 favorite after a sharp, front running effort in 1:52 in the three-year-old pacing fillies division. Tetrick sent Candy's A Virgin away from the gate firing and she dictated fractions of :28.4, :57.0 and 1:25.1 before ever feeling a threat. As the field turned for home, Tetrick asked his mount for more and she responded with a :26.4 final panel to win by three lengths. Owned by Emerald Highland Farms, the daughter of Always A Virgin-Candemonium notched her second win in four seasonal starts while sending her bankroll over $139,000. Trained by Brian Brown, the homebred filly has now won four of 12 lifetime outings. Fresh off a win in the Indiana Sires Stakes eliminations, Rose Run Parker was able to overcome the outside post nine to trot home a winner in 1:54.4 in the three-year-old trotting colt division and extended his win streak to eight in the process. Guided by regular driver Ricky Macomber Jr., Rose Run Parker was unable to find a spot along the rail in the early stages of the race and pressed on for the lead. Sandy Z Tam and Brad Hanners left alertly from post two and dictated fractions of :28.1 and :57.3. Forced to go three-wide approaching the final turn, Rose Run Parker was able to reach the leader's wheel at the third station in 1:25.4 before trotting away from the field to win by a length. "The trip didn't work out how I wanted it to tonight," Macomber noted after the race. "Obviously post nine didn't help, but he was able to overcome it. I pulled the earplugs down the lane and he took off again. He's really sharp right now." Trained by Ron Burke, the gelded son of Jailhouse Jesse-Centergy scored his third seasonal victory and remains undefeated at three. The 12-time career winner has now amassed $284,875 for his connections of Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, and W. Haas Jr. Bluehourpower did not disappoint as the 6/5 favorite in the three-year-old pacing colt division as he coasted home a winner in 1:50.3, a lifetime best performance. Driven by Sam Widger, Bluehourpower was uninvolved in the early stages of the race while Mike Peterson and Sling Shot Shooter set fractions of :27 and :54.4. As the field approached the final turn, Slingshot Shooter appeared to be up to the task, but Bluehourpower was perfectly placed second-over. Using a :26.3 last quarter, Bluehourpower powered home to win finish two lengths to the good. Trained and owned by Wilbur Eash, Bluehourpower has now won 6 of 13 lifetime starts and remains undefeated at three. The son of Sand Shooter-Blue Hour has now amassed $282,344 and three Indiana Sires Stakes finals to his credit.

ANDERSON, Ind.—May 30, 2014 — Ricky Macomber Jr. made Hoosier Park history on Friday, May 30 as he became the all-time leading driver, by wins, with 1,240 career victories at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. It was a driving triple on the evening for the 43-year-old reinsman and a night to remember as he surpassed Don Irvine Jr. on Hoosier Park’s all-time leading driver list in their 21-year history of harness racing. The victory with Hoosier Chinna in the evening’s sixth race, number 2,530 in Macomber’s career, tied him with Don Irvine Jr. for the top spot at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. After he guided A True Smerk to victory in Indiana Sires Stakes action just two races later, Macomber moved into the lead on the all-time leading driver standings with 1,239 trips to the Hoosier Park winner’s circle. Macomber then went on to secure his position atop the list and won with Ahlbback Yankee in the very next race leaving him with 1,240 victories at Hoosier Park and counting. All three of Macomber’s victories on the evening came from Hoosier Park’s leading conditioner, Ron Burke. Burke, who has won the leading trainer title at Hoosier Park for the past two seasons, currently leads all trainers with 27 wins while Macomber is fifth in the 2014 driver standings. Raised in South Florida by a family rich in harness racing tradition, Macomber won his first race at Pompano Park in the spring of 1997 and never looked back. A few years later, he and his father, Dick, an accomplished horseman since the early 1970’s, ventured to Indiana with hopes of starting a new path to success. The Midwest move has paid off. Macomber earned his first Hoosier Park driving title in 2007 and has finished among the top ten leading drivers nearly every year to date.  He has multiple stakes wins to his credit including winning Hoosier Park’s signature race, the $250,000 Dan Patch Invitational, twice. He guided Royalflush Hanover to victory in the 2000 Dan Patch Invitational and returned to the winner’s circle in the 2002 Dan Patch Invitational behind E Dee’s Cam. Macomber finished second with Fred and Ginger in the 2013 installment of Hoosier Park’s most prestigious race. Macomber is also part of the “Champions for Charity” promotion at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino, a group of drivers selected to help promote the sport of harness racing through their unique personalities, life stories and sportsmanship. At the start of the season, each driver personally selected a charitable organization to support with fundraising efforts throughout the year. Macomber raises funds through his charitable work for the Indiana School for the Deaf, giving back to a cause that holds a special meaning to him. “On behalf of Hoosier Park Racing & Casino, I’d like to congratulate Ricky on his accomplishment,” Hoosier Park’s Vice President and General Manager of Racing, Rick Moore noted. “And quite an accomplishment it is. Through his work with our Champions for Charity promotion, his professionalism, and attitude, Ricky is a great ambassador for our sport. We wish Ricky continued success for the remainder of this season and throughout his career. We look forward to watching him win many more races at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino.” by Emily Gaskin, for Hoosier Park

ANDERSON, Ind.-May 31, 2014 - On an action-packed stakes night, Peter Wrenn was the driving star of the night, winning a total of seven of the 14 races contested, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, May 31. Driving in each and every race, the veteran reinsman found the winner's circle in three of the first four races and two of the four divisions of the $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings. Wrenn teamed up with trainer Joe Cirasuola to capture the early double with JD's Caleb Man who rallied from off the pace in 1:52.1 and then used the same off-the-pace tactics in the next race with It's A Go to score in a lifetime best of 1:52.2. Charlie Stewart's Bazinga benefitted from a second over trip to score his sixth win of the season and third win of the night for Wrenn in 1:52. Unhurried off the gate, Bazinga settled along the rail in fourth before being asked to move down the backside. Using a :28.0 final panel, Bazinga cruised home to finish two lengths in front of the front-stepping Radar Warning and Mike Micallef. It wasn't until the second division of the Indiana Sires Stakes action for three-year-old pacing colts that Peter Wrenn found the winner's circle once more as Next Thing Smoke'n used a sharp, front running effort to score in 1:51.4. It was the first win of the season for the son of Sand Shooter-Are Those Real and a lifetime best effort. Trained, owned and bred by Roger Cullipher, Next Thing Smoke'n will be aimed at the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for three-year-old pacing colts slated for June 7 at Hoosier Park. Win number five for Wrenn came in the $18,000 Four-Year-Old Open Pace with the Indiana Sires Stakes Champion, Night Pro. Opting for a trip off the pace in the field of seven, Night Pro was uninvolved in the early stages before unleashing a :26.1 final panel to score in 1:51. It was the fifth win from seven seasonal outings for the son of Pro Bono Best-Midnight Jewel who is trained and owned by Dale Decker. In the fourth and final division of $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes action, it was Mister Truth in a 1:52.3 gate-to-wire effort to give Wrenn his sixth of the evening. It was the third consecutive win and first stakes victory for the son of Total Truth-Miss AJ Ponda who is trained by Ernie Gaskin. Wrenn capped his seventh win of the night with the heavily favored, Lucky Jet. Using a well-timed rally late in the lane, Lucky Jet was able to wear down Audreys Dream to stop the clock in 1:51.1. "It was a great night," Wrenn noted after his final victory of the evening. "I had some really live horses and the trips worked out in my favor. It's always nice to have nights like this every once in a while." As Hoosier Park Racing & Casino's three-time leading driver, Wrenn is closing in on 10,000 career wins and more than $65 million in purse earnings in the bike. Along with the driving titles from all over the country, he has also posted four consecutive seasons with his purse earnings surpassing the $3 million mark. Wrenn is currently third on the leading driver standings at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino while Tyler Smith leads all drivers with 85 victories. Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will continue on Tuesday, June 3 with a daily post time of 5:15 p.m. The 160-day, all harness racing meet will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 15. by Emily Gaskin, for Hoosier Park
