If anyone chooses to buy into The Jockey Club mandates imposed upon harness racing; that seek to shove this Federal bill down our throats based upon what they think is good for us because it's good for them, then I guess we could be satisfied with whatever The Jockey Club comes up with. Further, if one so believes, then one should be counted with those who believe that the USTA has not been negotiating, or not expending a great deal of effort for the best interest of its membership and our industry. You can believe that the hundreds of hours expended by USTA officers, directors, staff, lobbyists and counsel over the last three years has been nonexistent from the debate to negotiation stages on this Federal Bill. Blindly believe as anyone chooses but the reality is that simply is not true. Besides working to achieve recognition for the differences in our breed, bet you didn’t know that the USTA has been actively negotiating with thoroughbred interests even on a state level for recognition in regulations suited to our industry. The USTA has been pro active negotiating for our breed on state and federal levels, which work it has put front and center as its priority to protect the harness racing industry.   Just to give you an idea of what has also been taking place on the state level while we worked for similar goals on the National level. The concept of a National Racing Compact was advanced in a number of states that would have put us under thoroughbred umbrella similar to what the  Horse Racing Integrity and Safety Act will also do as a practical matter. That effort was initially and forcefully opposed by harness horsemen’s associations. Then with the aid of the USTA, a compromise was not only suggested, but crafted for the good of the harness industry. The USTA worked and actually drafted a state bill that would have put harness into the National Compact on the same footing as the thoroughbred industry. That would be with the statutory recognition that harness would have a separate state commission-appointed delegate to the Compact. That each breed would have separate delegates and each breed would be recognized for its differences and its unique performance model. The delegates would not be bound by, but would take input on medication rules regulations  from the separate breed representatives and enact regulations suited to each breed as those delegates saw fit. Under the National Racing Compact compromise offered by the USTA, the harness delegation could not force any regulations on the thoroughbreds, or vice versa, unless the other breed’s delegates consented. For example, if a regulation’s withdrawal time and threshold level was scientifically shown to have applicability to each breed, the other breed’s delegates could adopt it. Regulations would not be forced upon a breed that did not fit its own performance model. Unfortunately, while the Compact was deemed to work well for the thoroughbreds, when an offer was made for the same formula for harness separately, negotiations broke off despite all our work. What  the USTA sought in those negotiations was a simple equal and fair agreement on National Racing Compact legislation that would be as fair and acceptable to the harness industry as it was for the thoroughbred industry. Simply, everything was the same in the statute that was applicable to them would be applicable to our industry, but on a parallel line. Naively we thought that this should get a done deal. It seemed fair, after all we race more than they do and our vets treat our horses quite differently often doing multiple joints bilaterally. The USTA’s work was rejected by the thoroughbreds. No reason given. Over many months and before the new version of the “Integrity” Act of 2020 popped up, harness offered that deal on the National Compact in our negotiations. The same kind of effort was put into the Federal Bill but with even greater intensity and work. The thoroughbred representatives refused any negotiation and the USTA received the very same response it was getting to the Compact offer it made. This despite the harness industry’s efforts spearheaded by the USTA over the last three years and 300 hours of meetings to factor fairness for our breed into the Federal bill. The result, the same, No deal. The thoroughbreds, one has to think, will benefit from our payments under the new Federal bill based upon our number of starts as compared to theirs and at a cost to our horsemen of initially $50 per start. Much of our money will be for studying how to prevent thoroughbred breakdowns by improving racing surfaces. Additionally, the cause for removing Lasix is based upon the fiction that the therapeutic medication is the cause of those breakdowns and the further fiction that it masks other medications, when today we can find medications down to the picogram in most horses on Lasix.  Safety and Integrity are nice buzz words… but don’t be fooled, because all the 2020 Act will provide the harness industry is a massive fee assessment towards the cure of someone else’s problems, and a brand new set of regulations that will provide solace for the pet peeves of someone else’s industry, and the potential destruction of ours. The USTA is not so naive to think that once this law is passed, if indeed it might be, that somehow our negotiations will continue and the USTA will succeed in achieving fairness for our members. Make no mistake, once enacted we will pay under this law in many ways. With 1 seat at a table of 27 and you can see the degree of input we will have in effectuating necessary reforms in either the law or its application. For those who think differently, one can only wish you are correct. Our experience teaches us differently. From Joe Faraldo, chairman of USTA District 8A  

After winning his batteria (elimination division), Zacon Gio (5m Ruty Grif-May Glade Font SM) took the GP Lotteria 71 st edition in Italy.   The Finale (purse 600,000€, 1600 meters autostart) this day, clocked in 1.10.5kr (equals Timone EKs 2017 mark) with Roberto Vecchine up for trainer Holger Ehlert. He started from post one after his 1.10.6kr score in the third elimination.   A length back second in the finale was Face Time Bourbon (5m Ready Cash-Vita Bourbon) handled by Bjorn Goop, the first elim winner in 1.11.8kr. Third was Vivid Wise As (6m Yankee Glide-Temple Blue Chip) for Alessandro Gocciadoro, ahead of fourth finishing Billie de Montfort (9f Jasmin de Flore-Quismy de Montfort) with Gabriele Gelormini at the lines.   Zacon Gio had won the Yonkers International a year ago and accomplished trainer Ehlert, who just recently recovered from heart surgery. A great story this is.   This classic race has been won three times by Tornese, Une de Mail, Varenne and Birbone and trainer/driver Vivaldi Baldi is a five time winner of the Lotteria.   In the first elimination division Face Time Bourbon (5m Ready Cash-Vita Bourbon) recovered from a miscue to score in 1.11.8kr for reinsman Bjorn Goop, trainer Sebastien Guarato and Scuderia Bivans. He finished a length up on Vitruvio (6m Adrian Chip-Tigre OM) handled by Alessandro Gocciadoro and third finishing Zefiro Gual (5m Algiers Hall-Delmatica Gual) with Antonio Greppi up. Face Time raced with shoes on. Face Time Bourbon The second elim saw Vernissage Grif (6m Varenne-Dalia Grif) score in 1.11.7kr for reinsman Gocciadoro. He defeated Frisbee d’Am (5m The Best Madrik-Des Rondes) and driver Anthony Barrier by four lengths with veteran Arazi Boko (13g Varenne-Laura Kemp) another length back third for Santo Mollo. Batteria three went to 1.10.6kr clocked Zacon Gio (5m Ruty Grif-May Glade Font SM) and pilot Roberto Vecchione. This Holger Ehlert trainee narrowly bested Billie de Montfort (9f Jasmin de Flore-Quismyh de Montfort) reined by Gabriele Gelormini for trainer Guarato.

Plainville, MA --- Harness racing trainer George Ducharme has been one of the top trainers competing in the Massachusetts Sire Stakes for years and his success in the series is no surprise as many of the horses the Walpole, Massachusetts native starts are tight and experienced coming in off their New York Sire Stake races. This year he brings a "Ducharmy" of nine starters to Plainridge Park on Monday (Oct. 26) including a pair of defending 2-year-old champions looking to repeat and take their share of the $720,000 up for grabs in purse money. Here is a look at his starters followed by some comments by Ducharme. In the 3-year-old trotting filly division, Ducharme has a three headed monster led by Without A Warning (RC Royalty-Concentration) who is one of those returning champions. Without A Warning race against Love A Good Story and Hypnotic Am all summer in the NYSS and finished third in the $225,000 final. She has now won three in a row in MASS competition, taking a new lifetime mark and setting a MASS stake record of 1:54.2 in the process. He is also starting Dramatra (Trixton-Bourbon 'n Grits) who is a sister to 2013 Hambletonian champion Royalty For Life and Greyscale (Credit Winner-Global Beauty) who has had some light stake work in New York. "Without A Warning is just a nice horse. She raced those three good fillies in New York all year and held her own. She was just maybe a step below them, but it has definitely bravened her up for the competition level she's had to race so far." "Dramatra was just growthy and sore last year so we quit with her. This year she's come back to be a useful racehorse that has held her own in stakes so far. Greyscale is a good honest little horse, not quite as fast as the other two, but one that has done what we've asked of her to this point for sure." Ducharme has two 3-year-old trotting colts starting including another returning champion, Life Is A Feast (Royalty For Life-Luau Hanover) who was racing in the Ontario Sire Stakes and Double Dealing who was a NYSS Excel A finalist. "I just got Life Is A Feast back a couple weeks ago. I trained him down last winter and then sent him up to Canada for his Canadian stakes. He hadn't raced in almost three weeks before his first MASS start the other day and I think he needed the race. So hopefully he should be a little better this week." "Double Dealing has just turned into a real honest little horse. He trots 55-ish every week and he can do it on the lead or from behind and I'm pretty happy with him." Another two starters appear in the 2-year-old trotting colts division with In The Cards (RC Royalty-Super Starlet) who had a win and a third in NYSS action and Beantown Madness (Conway Hall-Armbro Archer) who Ducharme has been very pleased with his progression coming in. "Beantown Madness has turned out to be a really nice little horse. We were very slow with him, we raced him in the NYSS Excel B races and let him learn because he wasn't the biggest horse at the time. But he's grown and filled out and really come into his own and he's learning how to make speed. I couldn't be happier with him." Ducharme's last trotting entry is 2-year-old trotting filly Royal Envy (RC Royalty-Temper Of Will) who seems to be peaking at the right time and is three-for-three in MASS action. "Royal Envy was growthy and sore most of the summer and that hindered her progress. I qualified and tried to race her and she just wasn't good so we backed off on her, blistered her up a couple of times, brought her back and she's been really good. She definitely has plenty of speed and she's finishing her miles real good right now. I think she'll become a useful horse, hopefully Monday, and then into next year." Ducharme is also starting one pacer, a 2-year-old filly named So Amazing (So Surreal-Teddy Ballgirl) that has actually raced up to her name. "So Amazing is just a nice filly. Last week I was really impressed with her, having horses at her the whole mile without a breather and finish the way she did. And to pace in 1:53 as a 2-year-old against a good group of fillies. That's a real good division because there are three or four in there that have taken turns every week depending on how the trips go." Ducharme also commented on how far the stake has come since the Race Horse Development Fund was put in place in 2015. "Every year this stake gets more competition as the quality of the mares gets better. And the numbers are getting better because people have faith in the program at Plainridge and Massachusetts right now. I think all of the class groups are in the 20's next year so a lot of them could go split divisions next year," said Ducharme. "We bought a couple more Mass-bred yearlings in Lexington this year besides our home-breds so we're going to keep supporting the program for sure."

ANDERSON, Ind -- In the first Breeders Crown elimination division for three-year-old pacing colts, Cattlewash equaled the all-age Harrah's Hoosier Park track record with a 1:47.2 performance.Later on the card, charging to his 11th win of the season, Tall Dark Stranger and regular driver Yannick Gingras fought off a late charge by Warraee Vital to win the second elimination in 1:48.4 Saturday.   Leaving fast and finishing faster, Cattlewash won the first 3-year-old colt pacing Breeders Crown elimination. The mile, clocked in 1:47.2, equaled the all-age track record and set a sophomore colt pacing mark. Driver David Miller left alertly from the rail with Cattlewash and rebuffed an early outside challenge from No Lou Zing, who settled in second through a :26 first quarter. Long shot The Greek Freak followed in third and favorite Capt Midnight sat in fourth. Miller sat comfortably with Cattlewash as he cut a :54.1 half. Heading into three-quarters, Capt Midnight took to the outside and started a strenuous chase for the leader, but one that saw him fade as Cattlewash excelled to three-quarters in 1:20.3. Allywag Hanover took his shot off the sizzling third panel and swung wide into the stretch, but he could not rally off weakening cover. Meanwhile, Cattlewash remained strong to the line, holding off No Lou Zing by 1-1/2 lengths. The Greek Freak, who drafted behind the leading pair, finished third, followed by Save Me A Dance and Manticore.   "He's real sharp right now," David Miller said, adding that he had no strategy when leaving from post one. "If a lot of horses left, I would've raced him differently, but no one did ... It's an awfully long stretch, but he [was going easily]." Cattlewash, a son of Somebeachsomewhere out of the Bettor's Delight mare Road Bet, is trained by Ron Burke for owner and breeder William Donovan. He paid $7.80 to win. Warrawee Vital tried to get a hold of the pace right off of the gate in the second BC elim division, leaving quickly and taking the lead over Captain Barbossa, with Tall Dark Stranger dropping in third into a fiery :25.4 first panel. Gingras shifted to the overland route to take over the lead, guiding the other six colts to three-quarters in 1:23. From the back, Captain Kirk failed to sustain an outer-tier advance while Elver Hanover stayed in fourth. Meanwhile, the original trio in front wrestled for the finish line. Warrawee Vital came out gallantly down the center of the track for a charge at Tall Dark Stranger, making Gingras urge the leader to shake off the challenger -- as he has done through the season when faced with a possible duel to the wire. Tall Dark Stranger responded again with a :25.4 closing quarter, winning by a neck in 1:48.4. Captain Barbossa held on for third, while Elver Hanover and Sandbetweenmytoes followed to make the final.   "I just trust [Tall Dark Stranger] and let him fight off horses in the stretch," Gingras said. "Last week in Lexington, I knew he was in the best shape he's ever been." Nancy Takter trains the James Avritt-bred son of Bettor's Delight and Precocious Beauty. Crawford Farms Racing, Marvin Katz, Caviart Farms and Howard Taylor own Tall Dark Stranger, who paid $2.20 to win.   by Frank Cotolo, for the Breeders Crown  

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Bettor's Wish and Gimpanzee prepared for next week's Breeders Crown finals with wins in their respective $25,000 invitational races Saturday (Oct. 24) at Harrah's Hoosier Park. The Breeders Crown Open Pace, Open Trot and Mare Trot did not require eliminations, so the invitationals were an opportunity to get a start prior to next Saturday's finals. Bettor's Wish won the invitational pace, a seven-horse field with four Breeders Crown finalists, by three-quarters of a length over Brassy Hanover in 1:50.2. Century Farroh finished third. The Breeders Crown finalists in the race were Bettor's Wish, Century Farroh, Sectionline Bigry (fourth) and Dancin Lou (sixth). Last year, Bettor's Wish finished second by a head to Dancin Lou in the Breeders Crown for 3-year-old male pacers. Gimpanzee won the invitational trot, a seven-horse field with six Breeders Crown finalists, by 1-3/4 lengths over Manchego in 1:52. Majestic Player A finished third. The Breeders Crown finalists in the race were Gimpanzee, Manchego, Majestic Player A, Lindy The Great (fourth), Fiftydallarbill (fifth) and Reign Of Honor (seventh). In the invitational pace, Bettor's Wish and driver Dexter Dunn were fourth as Century Farroh led the field to the quarter in :26.2 and half in :55.4. Bettor's Wish made his move heading to the final turn and was a half length from the leader when they reached three-quarters in 1:24.4. Bettor's Wish came home in :25.3 to get the win. "He's such a gutsy horse, his attitude is amazing, and makes my job easy because he's so versatile," Dunn said. "It's not an easy move (from age 3 to 4), but you know he's going to go out there and give you 100%. He's stepped up very good." Chris Ryder trains Bettor's Wish, a son of Bettor's Delight out of Lifetime Star. The 4-year-old has won five of 10 races this season, earning $382,232. For his career, he has won 23 of 41 starts and $2.29 million. He is owned by Ryder, Bella Racing, Fair Island Farm and Bettor's Wish Partners. He was bred by Brittany Farms. Bettor's Wish will stand at Diamond Creek Farm of Pennsylvania in 2021. "I'll miss him, that's for sure," Dunn said. "He's like an old mate. I'll definitely miss him, but I'm looking forward to see what he can produce on the racetrack once he becomes a stud." Bettor's Wish, the 4-5 favorite, paid $3.60 to win. In the invitational trot, Lindy The Great set the fractions -- :27, :56.3 and 1:25.2 -- while Gimpanzee and driver Brian Sears bided their time in third behind Reign Of Honor. Once in the stretch, Gimpanzee took control and cruised to victory. Manchego, who was sixth until well into the stretch, charged late with a :25.1 last quarter to get the place spot. The 4-year-old Gimpanzee, trained by Marcus Melander, is a two-time Breeders Crown champion. With a victory next week, he would join Mack Lobell as the only male trotters to win trophies at ages 2, 3 and 4. Gimpanzee has won seven of 10 races this year and $728,464. For his career, he has won 24 of 33 races and $2.44 million. He is owned by Courant Inc. and S R F Stable. The son of Chapter Seven and Steamy Windows was bred by Order By Stable. Sent off as the even money favorite, Gimpanzee paid $4.20 to win. by Ken Weingartner, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind -- Odds-on choice Kissin In The Sand bested reigning Horse of the Year Shartin N in the final strides of the lone $25,000 Breeders Crown elimination for harness racing pacing mares on Saturday (Oct. 24) at Harrah's Hoosier Park. Floating for position from post nine, Kissin In The Sand found a spot in fourth as Shartin N slid to the lead past a :27.1 first quarter. Warrawee Ubeaut rode the pocket up the backside with Treacherous Reign third. Meanwhile, driver Dexter Dunn waited to move Kissin In The Sand past a :56.2 half. Rounding the final turn, Dunn gave marching orders to the 4-5 betting choice, rolled toward Shartin N by three-quarters in 1:23.4, and stayed at her side through the stretch drive. Shartin N kept Kissin In The Sand at bay until the final sixteenth, where the 5-year-old Somebeachsomewhere mare slid to a three-quarter length advantage to win in 1:49.4. Shartin N settled for second with Warrawee Ubeaut giving pursuit up the passing lane for third and Treacherous Reign behind the top three in fourth. "She's been a good mare -- you know, she was a good 2-year-old, good 3-year-old, 4-year-old, 5-year-old, so she's just super tough," trainer Nancy Takter said after the race. "The best part is going to be that she's not going to have the nine-hole in the final now." A winner on six occasions from 10 starts this year and 25 times in 56 starts overall, Kissin In The Sand has earned $1,519,094 for owners Marvin Katz and Hatfield Stables. She paid $3.60 to win. With Rockin Nola and Trillions Hanover opting for byes to the $300,000 final, Philly Hanover, Caviart Ally, Sweet Lucy Lou and Stonebridge Soul -- who finished fifth through eighth, respectively -- will also advance. The field of 10 distaff pacers, and their trainers, that will contest the $300,000 final are as follows: 1. Sweet Lucy Lou (Robert Cleary) 2. Rockin Nola (Joe Putnam) 3. Kissin In The Sand (Nancy Takter) 4. Caviart Ally (Brett Pelling) 5. Warrawee Ubeaut (Ron Burke) 6. Shartin N (Jim King Jr.) 7. Philly Hanover (Robert Don Fellows) 8. Treacherous Reign (Tony Alagna) 9. Trillions Hanover (Tom Fanning) 10. Stonebridge Soul (Chris Ryder) by Ray Cotolo, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind -- Capricornus (Tim Tetrick), who was dismissed at odds of 61-1 in the first of two $25,000 Breeders Crown eliminations for 3-year-old trotting colts and geldings at Harrah's Hoosier Park on Saturday (Oct. 24), collected his first triumph of the season. Kentucky Futurity winner Amigo Volo (Dexter Dunn), never truly pressured, tripped the timer in a new track record of 1:51.2 in the second elimination. EL Ideal (Andy Miller) left sharply from the rail but was outgunned for the early lead by Play Trix On Me (Joe Bongiorno). Play Trix On Me established the first fraction of :26.2, but EL Ideal was not satisfied with not being on the front. He retook the lead before the half-mile marker and clicked off fractions of :56.1 and 1:24.3. As the field turned for home, Play Trix On Me was prepared to challenge while Capicornus remained in sixth -- where he had advanced after getting away eighth. As Ready For Moni (Yannick Gingras), Chestnut Hill (David Miller) and Gangster Hanover (Andrew McCarthy) launched their bids, Tetrick decided it was time to make his move, and Capicornus did not disappoint. As EL Ideal and Play Trix On Me faded from the toll of their earlier efforts, Capricornus trotted with conviction to the wire. He stopped the clock in a new lifetime mark of 1:52.2. Chestnut Hill was second and Gangster Hanover was third. Ready For Moni held for fourth and Play Trix On Me just lasted to procure the final spot in the $500,000 final on Saturday (Oct. 31).   Trained by Marcus Melander, Capricornus, a son of Cantab Hall and Oh My Darling, is owned by JJ Racing Stable. He was bred by Windsong Stable. His record now stands at 22-4-5-5, and he has banked more than $250,000. He returned $125.00 to win. "I liked this horse from last year; today I didn't even pull him until the top of the lane," Tetrick said. "He disappointed me all year and has not fulfilled his job, but tonight he did what I thought he could all year and showed his talent. We said if he raced as good as we felt he could, he would win." In the second elimination, Amigo Volo left the gate quickly and had an early tussle with Beads (Brian Sears) for the early lead. Amigo Volo shrugged him off and clicked of a quarter mile in :27. Amigo Volo led the field through the half mile in :56.1 and to the three-quarters in 1:24.4. It appeared the only opposition he would encounter would be from Maesteraemon (Tim Tetrick) -- who was in third -- and Beads in second. As the horses headed to the wire, Maesteraemon began to close on the outside while Beads sought to challenge on the inside, but Amigo Volo maintained his advantage to the line under minimal urging.   Beads remained in second, three-quarters of a length behind at the finish, Maesteraemon was third and Back Of The Neck (Ã…ke Svenstedt) came from well back to be fourth. Hillexotic (Andy Miller) earned the last position in the final. Trained by Richard "Nifty" Norman, the son of Father Patrick and Margarita Momma is owned by Pinske Stables and David J. Miller. He was bred by Kentuckiana Farms and Jorgen Jahre Jr. Amigo Volo, last year's Breeders Crown winner for his age, sex and gait, now has a record of 25-13-3-2 and has earned more than $1.2 million. He paid $3.20 to win. When asked about his improvement since a fourth-place finish in this year's Hambletonian, Dunn had a positive response. "He was great in the Hambo," he said. "He just didn't have a lot of luck. He's done very well since that race. He was very good again tonight and worked hard all the way to the finish." by Kimberly French, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind. -- After throwing down a :25.1 final quarter, Party Girl Hill (Dexter Dunn) kept her perfect record intact after tripping the timer in 1:50.1 in the first of two $25,000 Breeders Crown eliminations for 3-year-old harness racing pacing fillies at Harrah's Hoosier Park on Friday (Oct. 23). Lyons Sentinel (Tim Tetrick) made a late bid to hit the wire in front in 1:49.4 in the second elimination. Party Girl Hill coasted along in third as Peaky Sneaky (Yannick Gingras) held the lead right from the start and Rocknificent (Scott Zeron) tracked in second. Sneaky Peaky set fractions of :25.4, :56.3 and 1:24.3, and shortly after they rounded the final turn in the mile, Party Girl Hill was given her cue.   The daughter of Captaintreacherous and Rocklamation bore down on the leader and passed a valiant Peaky Sneaky to improve her resume to 14-14-0-0 and her bankroll to more than $745,000. Drama Act (Matt Kakaley) got up for third, with Rocknificent coming home fourth. Pettycoat Business (Trace Tetrick) collected the last spot in the $500,000 final next Saturday (Oct. 31). Trained by Chris Ryder, Party Girl Hill competes as a homebred for owner Tom Hill. The winner paid $2.20. "She's a phenomenal filly," Ryder said. "I feel confident going into next weekend, although there are some tremendous horses here. She has many qualities. She's got class. She's got speed and she can relax. She's got it all. She is versatile and takes everything that comes at her. I think not racing her last year helped her. She is doing as well as a horse can do this year. She only has the Matron left (after the Breeders Crown final), but we haven't talked about it whether she will race in it." Lyons Sentinel was allowed to float off the gate as Hen Party (Andrew McCarthy) went straight to the front. After Hen Party led the field of seven through the first quarter mile in a sizzling :25.2, Priceless (Andy Miller) was hot on her hooves, as was Baby Your The Best (David Miller). Miller decided it was time for Priceless to set the fractions and pulled her, placing Hen Party in the pocket. The Indiana champion set standards of :55.2 and 1:23.3 before the other fillies came to her as they hit the stretch. JK First Lady assumed command in mid-stretch and seemed to be home free as Priceless faded. That's when Lyons Sentinel was just gearing up. Loaded with pace, the filly had been sitting in sixth for most of the mile but moved into fourth turning for home. After catching JK First Lady, Lyons Sentinel dueled with that rival before putting her away in late stretch. New Year (Dunn) passed Hen Party, who was fourth, to be third. Lady Lou (Joe Bongiorno) nailed down the final spot in the final, finishing fifth.  A daughter of Captaintreacherous and Tutu Hanover, Lyons Sentinel was the slight favorite over JK First Lady and returned $3.60. She is trained by Jim King Jr. and owned by Threelyonsracing. by Kimberly French, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Spoiled Princess carved a path towards the lead and powered to the front in the final strides to score in the first $25,000 elimination for the Breeders Crown 3-year-old filly harness racing trot on Friday (Oct. 23) at Harrah's Hoosier Park.   Sister Sledge slid to the lead from post five as Sorella rolled alongside and soon moved to the lead by a :26.4 opening quarter. Hypnotic AM, positioned third, pulled from the pylons to circle to the lead before a :57 half, seating Sorella into the pocket and shuffling Sister Sledge to third. At that point, driver Dexter Dunn angled Spoiled Princess first-over from fifth and began marching towards Hypnotic AM trotting to three-quarters in 1:26.2. Off the turn, Spoiled Princess drew to equal terms with the leader and stuck a head in front charging for the finish, maintaining that margin in progress to a 1:53 victory over Hypnotic AM with Sorella finishing third. Rock Swan and May Baby round out the first-elimination finalists. "She felt great sitting fifth there, and she felt even better when I moved her off the helmet and came first-over," Dunn said after the race. "She's really strong right now and she was good to the finish." Bred by Robert McNerney and Hauser Brothers Racing Entertainment LLC, Spoiled Princess collected her fifth win from 12 starts this season and her eighth from 21 overall, earning $171,136. Nancy Takter conditions the daughter of Trixton for owners Black Horse Racing and Christina Takter. She paid $7.40 to win. Next Level Stuff lunged to the lead through the open stretch to take the other elimination for 3-year-old trotting fillies. Whose Blues protected position from the pylon post to a :26.4 first quarter, but yielded for the pocket as Ab'sattitudexpress rolled towards the top approaching the backstretch. Next Level Stuff trotted third to a :58 half and raced locked at the pylons into the final turn as Caviart Eva pulled first-over but stalled. Ab'sattitudexpress continued unchallenged to three-quarters in 1:26.4, but faced pressure as Whose Blues popped pocket straightening for the finish. Next Level Stuff had a seam to slide closer to the leader and, as Whose Blues went on a gallop, dove into the passing lane to take aim at the pacesetter late and edge by in the final strides of a 1:53.4 mile. Love A Good Story, the 3-2 favorite, rallied for third, while Caviart Eva and Crucial completed the finalists. Winning her sixth race from 12 starts this season and her 12th from 22 overall, Next Level Stuff has banked $396,816 for owner-breeder Runthetable Stable. Tim Tetrick drove the Jim Campbell-trained Sebastian K S filly, who paid $6.00 to win. by Ray Cotolo, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Mazzarati, a 24-1 long shot, motored down the stretch to win the first of Friday's (Oct. 23) two $25,000 Breeders Crown eliminations for 2-year-old filly harness racing trotters in a lifetime best 1:54.3 and Lady Chaos captured the second in 1:54.2, both over a sloppy surface at Harrah's Hoosier Park. The top five finishers from each elimination advance to the $600,000 final on Oct. 30 at Hoosier Park. Joining Mazzarati in the final from the first elim were Gotta Believe, Splash Blue Chip, Iteration and Ima Diamond Babe. Donna Soprano, the 3-5 favorite, went off stride behind the gate and third choice You Ato Dream made a break on the first turn. Beautiful Game also made a break.   Joining Lady Chaos in the final from the second elim were Presto, Swift Swanda, Big City Pearl and Hello I Love You. Flawless Country, the morning line favorite, was scratched. In the first elimination, Mazzarati and driver Tim Tetrick were third as Iteration, with Brian Sears in the sulky, led the field through fractions of :27.4, :57.3 and 1:26.2. As the group turned for home, Mazzarati hit another gear and sped home to victory by 1-1/4 lengths over Andy Miller-driven Gotta Believe, who was sent off at 50-1. Ãke Svanstedt's Splash Blue Chip was third.   Lucas Wallin trains Mazzarati for owners Mazza Racing Stables and Stormi and Bruiser Stable. Mazzarati, by Cantab Hall out of Falls For You, has won four of nine races this season and earned $83,785. She was bred by Fair Winds Farm. Mazzarati paid $50.80 to win. In the second elimination, Lady Chaos and driver David Miller sat second as Dexter Dunn guided May Karp to fractions of :27.3, :57.4 and 1:26.4. Presto, the 8-5 favorite driven by Yannick Gingras, came first-over from fifth to take the lead, but was unable to hold off Lady Chaos in the stretch. Lady Chaos, the 5-2 second choice, won by three-quarters of a length over Presto. Swift Swanda, with Trace Tetrick, finished third.   "I was really happy with her," said Linda Toscano, who trains Lady Chaos for owners Richard Gutnick, Tom Pontone, Joseph Lozito Jr. and Enviro Stables. "David gave her a really good trip and she finished up good. She was sick her last start in Lexington and we opted to not race her the second week, and so far it looks like it's paid off. "I have a lot of confidence in the filly. She's been a pleasure all the way through." Lady Chaos, the Kentucky Sire Stakes champion and Peaceful Way Stakes runner-up, has won five of nine races this season and earned $260,803. A daughter of Cantab Hall out of Strong Legacy, she was bred by Lindy Farms of Connecticut and AV & Son Bloodstock. Lady Chaos paid $7.80 to win. by Ken Weingartner, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Perfect Sting remained perfect on the harness racing season with an authoritative performance in the second of two $25,000 eliminations for the Breeders Crown juvenile pacing colt and gelding division on Friday night (Oct. 23) at Harrah's Hoosier Park. Southwind Gendry continued his successful stakes winning streak as well, capturing the first $25,000 elimination to notch his seventh straight win. Perfect Sting, the royally-bred son of champions Always B Miki and Shebestingin, scored effortlessly in 1:50.4, leaving pocket-sitting rival Summa Cum Laude four lengths behind at the wire. Driver David Miller left for early placement, allowing Bayfield Beach to claim the early lead with Summa Cum Laude and Yannick Gingras getting parked past the :26.3 opening quarter to take control. At that point, Miller gunned Perfect Sting to the front and cleared before reaching the half mile in :55.1. The Joe Holloway trainee was in relaxation mode the third quarter, leading the field through a pedestrian :29.2 fraction. While, some 13 days earlier, rival Summa Cum Laude nearly defeated Perfect Sting at Lexington while on the lead, that foe proved powerless to keep contact with Perfect Sting -- who effortlessly expanded his lead to 3-3/4 lengths with a :26.1 final quarter over a rain-soaked surface rated sloppy.   The biggest battle was for the place spot, as Always A Miki cleared road trouble in mid-stretch and just missed catching Summa Cum Laude for second. Abuckabett Hanover and driver Andy McCarthy made a furious rally and was lapped on that pair, but settled for fourth. Early leader Bayfield Beach claimed the final qualifying berth. Owned and bred by Brittany Farms (Geoge Segal) and Val D'Or Farms (Martin Granoff), Perfect Sting has won all nine of his career starts. Southwind Gendry continued his successful stakes winning streak in capturing the first $25,000 elimination. Yannick Gingras guided the gelding from the first crop of Always B Miki to an impressive 1:51 victory. Indiana Sires Stakes champion J K Going West and driver LeWayne Miller pushed the early tempo, clearing the lead ahead of Captains Place in a :27 first quarter while Gingras got away in third position with the 2-5 favorite Southwind Gendry. Coming off the bend, Southwind Gendry made a methodical move up the backstretch to gain control while hardly stressed through a :56.4 first half. Gingras didn't allow an outer flow to develop as he picked up the pace with Southwind Gendry, making others work through three quarters in 1:25.1. It was essentially a one-horse race from there, as the Ron Burke trainee hit high gear and powered through a wind-aided :25.4 final quarter to complete the mile in 1:51.   Caviart Lotus and driver Tim Tetrick rallied late for the place spot, three lengths back, with early leader J K Going West along for third. Literl Lad Hanover and Captains Place completed the top five to qualify for the final. It was the ninth victory in 11 starts this year -- and the seventh in a row -- for Southwind Gendry. Owned by Burke Racing Stable, Phil Collura, Knox Services, and J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby, Southwind Gendry was bred by Southwind Farms. "He's got a high gear," said Gingras in the winner's circle. "I'm really looking forward to next week." by Jay Bergman, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Continualou (David Miller), at odds of 92-1, strode home with a :26 final panel to claim the first of two $25,000 Breeders Crown eliminations for 2-year-old harness racing pacing fillies at Harrah's Hoosier Park on Friday (Oct. 23). JK Alwaysbalady (Yannick Gingras) got up in the shadow of the wire to take the second elimination and collect the second win of her young career. Continualou was placed in second after leaving the starting gate and remained there through the :27.2 first quarter established by Caviart Audrey (Gingras). Fire Start Hanover (Dexter Dunn) was gunned to the lead from third with Caviart Audrey remaining in the pocket spot and Continualou tracking in third. Fire Start Hanover led the field through fractions of :57.1 and 1:25 heading into the stretch. Caviart Audrey appeared poised to strike as the fillies turned for home, however Continualou had other plans. The daughter of Sweet Lou and Continual Velocity surged past Fire Start Hanover in mid-stretch to stop the clock in 1:51.4. Fire Start Hanover held for second, 1-3/4 lengths behind, with Paulas Bet Hanover passing Caviart Audrey for third. The favorite, Indiana Sires Stakes champion Somethingbeautiful (Tim Tetrick), failed to fire and was fifth. The top five finishers advance to the $600,000 final on Oct. 30. Conditioned by Ron Burke, Continualou is a homebred for the Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi. The filly's record now improves to 11-3-2-0 and she has now banked more than $140,000. "She is a homebred and we own her sire and her dam," said co-owner and co-breeder Mark Weaver. "It's always special when you win a race like this with a homebred. David (Miller) put her in a perfect position, and everything just worked out for her. Yes, I did think those odds were a little long. Of course, if I had bet on her, she would have went off a lot lower. But when I asked Ronnie (Burke) earlier this week about which horses were doing well here, he mentioned two and she was one of them. You never know how a horse is going to like this track and she sure seemed to." Continualou paid $186.00 to win. JK Alwaysbalady (Gingras) got up in the shadow of the wire to outlast Scarlett Hanover (Matt Kakaley) and Notorious Pink (Tim Tetrick) and take the second $25,000 elimination for her age, gait and sex. It is the second win of her young career. The daughter of Horses of the Year Always B Miki and JK She'salady settled into fifth after leaving the gate. Thebeachiscalling shot to the lead and set a swift first fraction of :25.3. Notorious Pink was the first to move from fourth and procured the lead shortly before the half-mile marker. Notorious Pink continued to top the field through fractions of :55.1 and 1:23. But Scarlett Hanover was prepared to challenge her rival as the field headed for home and Notorious Pink seemed to slightly shorten stride. In the middle of the stretch, JK Alwaysbalady was placed on the outside to commence her bid. She closed stoutly and bested Scarlett Hanover by a head in 1:51. Notorious Pink held for third, with Blue Diamond Eyes fourth and Nashville Elgenna fifth. Trained by Nancy Takter, JK Alwaysbalady races as a homebred for 3 Brothers Stables. Her resume now stands at 8-2-2-2 and she has now earned more than $75,000. "We were thrilled we got one in, let alone two (fillies in the Breeders Crown elims out of the same dam)," said Alan Katz, who operates the stable with his brothers Ron and Steve. "It's been a blessing owning them. We've got two stallions and we're thrilled to be here. "She's getting better and better. She was lazy and starting to get to it which is the complete opposite of her older sister (JK First Lady). We wouldn't sell her unless we get out of the business." by Kimberly French, for the Breeders Crown

ANDERSON, Ind. -- Venerate produced a wire-to-wire domination of the field in the second $25,000 Breeders Crown elimination for 2-year-old colt and gelding harness racing trotters on Friday (Oct. 23) at Harrah's Hoosier Park, leading all the way with ease to win in 1:52.2 -- a track record for freshman trotters. Driver Andy Miller wasted no time taking the lead with Venerate off the gate in the sloppy going, seating favorite Captain Corey in the pocket. Outsider Capstone dropped into third with Dancinginthedark M following in fourth through the :27.1 first quarter. Nothing changed as Venerate glided on the lead effortlessly to cut the half in :56 and three-quarters in 1:25.1. Meanwhile, Captain Corey went to the outside in an attempt to catch the leader. Venerate pounded onward with no concern for the following favorite, as those two drew many lengths ahead of the others. Dancinginthedark M, looking to pick up third, broke stride and backed up, leaving a path for Take All Comers to get the show spot and Muscles Dynasty to finish fourth. Zenith Stride finished fifth.   Venerate's divisional track record mile was only one-fifth of a second off the all-age trotting record at Harrah's Hoosier Park. Venerate is by the French sire Love You and out of the Muscle Hill mare Peaceful Kemp. The Julie Miller trainee was bred by Steve Stewart and Kemppi Stable and is owned by the Pinske Stable and Andy Miller Stable. He paid $7.00 to win. In the heat of the stretch, In Range flew on the outside past a breaking leader to finish a hair ahead of a fast-closing Brookview Bolt in the first elimination. The two favorites, Delayed Hanover and Cuatro De Julio, left quickly to take the first two spots off the gate and reach the quarter in :26.3. Moonstone S, who dropped into third early, broke stride going to the half, allowing Brookview Bolt to inherit third and In Range to roll along in fourth. While Cuatro De Julio led the field to three-quarters in 1:26.4, Tim Tetrick steered In Range to the outside for a charge into the stretch. Losing some ground but still ahead, Cuatro De Julio began to gallop and back up. From mid-stretch, Brookview Bolt got going, only to meet In Range at the wire and miss by a neck. The 1:54.1 win was a career best for In Range, a son of Bar Hopping and Ilia bred by the Windsong Stable. In Range is trained by Marcus Melander for owners AMG Stable, Kenneth Kjellgren, Tomas Hans Asell and Rick Wahlstedt. In Range paid $14.00 to win.   "The track was playing fair," Tetrick said after the race. Delayed Hanover finished third, and On A Streak was fourth. Cuatro De Julio, who finished fifth, was disqualified and demoted to seventh, elevating Cricket Fashion to the official fifth place. by Frank Cotolo, for the Breeders Crown
