Heading into the first round of the Burning Point series for pacing mares, all eyes were on the re-match of Worldly Beauty winner Witch Dali and her rival and runner-up from that same series, Donttellruss. New to the party was the Ron Burke trained Southwind Serentiy, a fine compliment to her stablemate, Donttellruss. Such a fine compliment, that Yannick Gingras, given his choice of the two, opted to Southwind Serenity. That harness racing entry was sent off as the 1/2 favorite, with Witch Dali the 2-1 second choice. But someone forgot to tell Empress Deo that this was a three-horse race. The early lead belonged to Southwind Serenity, who was hustled to the front by Gingras and established a 27.1 opening quarter under no pressure. She was allowed to coast through a 55.4 half-mile as her stable-mate, Donttellruss committed first over. But it was a slow grind and Southwind Serenity appeared comfortable as she reached three-quarters in 1:24. Witch Dali loomed as a menacing presence from second over as the field turned for home. But when the field straightened up in the stretch and Gingras asked his mare for more, there was no real response. Donttellruss had stalled first over at this point, Witch Dali kicked off cover and Somenicebeach pulled the pocket and was in contention. But behind all that, Empress Deo, hopelessly locked in on the pylons was angled all the way to the outside by Brett Miller and as soon as she saw clear racetrack in front of her, she exploded and stormed past the entire field to win in 1:51.4. Somenicebeach was second and Witch Dali third. The winner was trained by Wayne Givens for Legacy Racing Of Delaware Inc. She returned $30.20 to win. The $25,000 Dash For The "C" Notes for the trotters was contested Friday night at The Meadowlands. The race featured an overwhelming favorite in Rock Of Cashel at 1/2. There was plenty of action throughout the mile with four lead changes between the start and the three-quarter pole. Rock Of Cashel turned for home with the lead, but the field was closing in. Meanwhile, Perfect Picture, a 70-1 longshot was blocked and looking for racing room. Suddenly she found it inside the 1/8th pole and rallied to score a huge upset to kick off the late pick four, a sequence that returned over $24,000 for a $.50 cent ticket. My Muscleman was second and Rock Of Cashel faded to third. The winner was driven by Trace Tetrick for trainer Amber Buter, and owners Oldford Farms LLC and Tyler Buter. The same trainer and owner connections of the Thursday night Dash For The "C" Notes winner, Antigua Hanover. In the 11th race, a nw15000L5 condition event for pacing mares, Shebestingin, the fastest pacing mare of all time made her return to the races. She was taken off the pace, followed cover and rallied to finish second as the 1/2 favorite, defeated by 29-1 longshot, Addy's Way. Trainer Joe Holloway indicate in a pre-race interview that Shebestingin would need to return to the top level or she would likely head to the breeding shed for this breeding season. The brothers' Tetrick combined for four wins on the program, while Yannick Gingras hit a grand slam himself. The fifth race $.20 cent Jackpot Super Hi-5 went unclaimed tonight, resulting in a $12,996.60 carryover into the Saturday program. The last race jackpot also was not hit, and that carryover now stands at $94,175.03. That means there will be well over $100,000 on the line in the last race Jackpot Super Hi-5 on Saturday night. Post Time for the 13-race program, featuring the first round of the Sonsam series is 7:15 P.M. Darin Zoccali Director of Racing Operations New Meadowlands Racetrack LLC

Somwherovrarainbow made her five year old debut a winning one as she triumphed in the harness racing $30,000 Free-For-All Handicap at The Meadowlands on Friday Night. Sent off as the 3/5 favorite, the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere was sent hard off the gate by Dave Miller and cleared the lead heading toward the opening quarter without any urging. Essentially, that was the end of the race as the World Champion and millionaire would coast through fractions of 27, 55.2 and 1:23.1 before turning for home with an ever-expanding lead. Breeders Crown winner, Monkey On My Wheel, made a brief bid, but tired first over. Southwind Serentity offered minimal response off cover. The only horse to make any noise in the stretch was For The Ladies N, who rallied from last to finish second with Icommandmyspirit getting up to be third. The final clocking was 1:50.4. For Somwherovrarainbow, the win marked the 20th time the magnificent mare has made the trip to the winners circle from 45 starts, sending her earnings past $1.34 Million. Somwhereovrarainbow is trained by Joe Holloway for owners Theodore Gewertz and Diamond Creek Racing. On the wagering front, there will be a Pick 5 carryover of $22,616 into The Saturday card at The Meadowlands. Post Time and the start of the Pick 5 which begins in the first race is 7:15 P.M. Hill I Am got back to his winning ways in the fifth race, a $17,050 non-winners of three trot. Sent off as the 9/2 third choice in the wagering, Hill I Am was aggressively moved to the lead heading to the half-mile pole and proceeded to lead the charge around the far turn. Candy Stash made a first over move after the leader, but Corey Callahan could be seen looking over his right shoulder as the field approached the top of the stretch, seemingly looking around for competition. As the field straightened up, Callahan called to his trotter and the response was instant as Hill I Am powered away to win impressively by nearly five lengths in 2:10.2 for the 1 1/8th miles. Hill I Am was an undefeated New Jersey Sire Stakes Champion as a two year old for Dennis Laterza and Roy Dobbins who were the winning connections tonight. Tim Tetrick was the driving star on the night, winning four races. The fifth race jackpot super hi-five was hit tonight and returned $47,172.50 for $.20 cents. That pool will start fresh on Saturday night. The last race jackpot super hi-five went unclaimed and will feature a carryover into the 13th race on Saturday of $61,470. The win by Hill I Am sparked a Pick 5 carryover of $22,616 into The Saturday card at The Meadowlands. Post Time and the start of the Pick 5 which begins in the first race is 7:15 P.M.   Darin Zoccali    

Freehold, NJ --- A co-owner of Always B Miki, scratched “lame” just minutes before post time from the Breeders Crown on Saturday, has confirmed that the horse had orthopedic surgery Monday morning and a full recovery is expected.  Mitchel Skolnick of Bluewood Stable confirmed on Monday evening that the 3-year-old pacing colt had surgery on Monday morning performed by Dr. Patty Hogan at Hogan Equine in Cream Ridge, N.J. “She has no concerns (about a return to the races), very optimistic. She said it was a clean break of the P1 (long pastern bone), a sagittal fracture. She pulled it together and put in four screws, she said three screws might have been enough, but he is a very active horse, so she put in an extra one.” Skolnick said that Hogan had no doubt about a successful return to the races after a period of healing and recuperation. “He will come to the farm tomorrow (Bluestone Farm in Hopewell, N.J.) for 30 days of stall rest and then 30 days of walking on the Equicizer. Then maybe he can start jogging.” Skolnick said, “We just don’t know,” how Always B Miki sustained the injury. “I hate to speculate, because we just don’t know,” he said. “It’s repairable and we’re just thankful he didn’t go race (on the affected limb).”  Always B Miki is trained by Joe Holloway for breeders and co-owners Roll The Dice Stable, Val D’Or Farm and Bluewood Stable. He has won $926,866 in his career, including his most recent five races in a row, and has a mark of 1:47.4.  by Ellen Harvey, for Harness Racing Communications

Even being just an elimination division, both Always B Miki and Limelight Beach were not holding back at all as they both steamrolled their way to victory over stellar fields to win their respective $25,000 Breeders Crown elimination divisions at the Meadowlands Saturday. JK Endofanera (Ron Pierce) was first on the lead with Luck Be With You (Brian Sears) sitting the pocket trip to the first quarter in :27. Then David Miller came charging up first-over and scooted right to the lead before the half mile in :55. With the lead firmly in their control, Always B Miki raced along as He’s Watching (Tim Tetrick) came first-over with a brush at the three-quarters in 1:23.1 with Let’s Drink On It (Tyler Smith) grabbing the second-over cover. Then as Always B Miki make the turn for him, Miller urged him on and ate up some more track and held off KJ Endofanera to win by a half length in 1:50. Let’s Drink On It was third. Also making the final was Somesizesomestyle fourth and Luck Be Withyou fifth. “He’s been real sharp,” David Miller said. “He raced great again tonight. This was one of his biggest efforts and he keeps on coming. When I asked him he paced right off to the wire. He seems to be in good shape.” Paying $3.00 to win, it was the fifth straight win and eighth victory of the season for Always B Miki. The son of Always A Virgin is trained by Joe Holloway and co-owned by Bluewood Stable, Val D’Or Farms and the Roll The Dice Stable who also bred Always B Miki. Always B Miki  Limelight Beach and driver Yannick Gingras were just as impressive in wiring the field in their elimination division, winning by one length in 1:49.3. Capital Account (Brett Miller) sat the pocket seat through fractions of :26.2 and :54.3 as McWicked (Brian Sears) was slowly moving up first-over. By the three-quarters in 1:23, McWicked nearly caught up with the leaders, giving Lyonssomewhere (John Campbell) live cover. But coming down the stretch Limelight Beach remained the strong horse, winning in hand with a :26.3 final quarter over a game McWicked with Doo Wop Hanover (Ron Pierce) third. Also making the final next week were Somestarsomewhere fourth and Capital Account fifth. “Just before he won the Little Brown Jug he has some good seconds and thirds,” Yannick Gingras said of Limelight Beach being 0 for 12 to start off the year. “He has just gotten better and better since then. Only hiccup was the race in Chicago. He (McWicked) gave me a good run in the stretch. I was confident that my horse had a good quarter left in him.” It was the fifth win on the year for Limelight Beach. The son of Somebeachsomewhere is trained by Ron Burke and is owned by the Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, the M1 Stable and Wingfield Brothers. He paid $3.60 to win.

Ted Gewertz and Diamond Creek Racing's Somwherovrarainbow (David Miller) regained her winning ways at Harrah's Philadelphia on Friday afternoon. The event was an open for filly and mare pacers, going for a purse of $35,000. The race also featured top distaffers such as three-time millionaire Anndrovette (Tim Tetrick), two-time millionaire Rocklamation (Yannick Gingras), and budding superstar Katie Said, who was driven by the returning Andy Miller. At the start, it was Rocklamation powering her way off the wings, getting the first quarter in 26.4. There was no rest up top however, as Regal Elektra (Vic Kirby) successfully brushed just beyond the quarter. After the half of 55.4, Somewherovrarainbow charged determinedly first-over, overpowering the leader at three-quarters (1:23). It was all over from that point forward, as she went on to a four length win, stopping the clock in 1:50.4. Anndrovette cleared late to be second, while Katie Said finished third. Somewherovrarainbow picked up her nineteenth career win, pushing her earnings closer to $1.3 million. She is trained by Joe Holloway. She went on to pay $37.40 to win, keying a $111.80 exacta, and a $800.80 trifecta. Open trotters were also in action on Friday over the Chester oval. The wagering public sent Bill Weaver's NF Happenstance (Andrew McCarty) off as the favorite. At the start, it was long shot Guiltywithanexcuse (Ron Pierce) moving out for the lead, by the quarter in :26.2. That lead was short-lived however, as Quick Deal (Andy Miller) surged past to clear, tripping the half in :56 (:28.3). Heading towards three-quarters, favored NF Happenstance gained ground first-over. They squared off at three quarters, which was clocked in 1:24.4 (28.4). Quick Deal made a break at the top of the stretch, which left NF Happenstance in a battle with a fast closing Backstreet Hanover, who swept past to pull off the upset, stopping the clock in 1:53.4. She paid $44.40 to win. The winner is owned by David Hamm, trained by Allan Johnson, and was one of three driving wins on the day for George Napolitano Jr. by Mike Bozich, for Harrah's Philadelphia

Last time: The Kentucky Futurity, the second leg of Trotting’s Triple Crown, capped off two exciting weeks of Grand Circuit racing at The Red Mile.   USTA/Mark Hall photo Nuncio and John Campbell captured the Kentucky Futurity at The Red Mile. Team Takter provided Red Mile fans with a thrilling stretch duel between stablemates Nuncio and Father Patrick who slugged it out to the wire, with Nuncio emerging victorious by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:51.3 in the 122nd edition of the $435,000 Kentucky Futurity for sophomore trotting colts. Hall of Famer John Campbell steered Nuncio, a son of Andover Hall-Nicole Isabelle, to his eighth win of the season and his 13th career victory for owner Stall TZ, Inc. He now has $1,488,970 in career earnings. Nuncio had the lead from start to finish, trotting through splits of :27.2, :54.1 and 1:22.2 before Father Patrick (Yannick Gingras) began to challenge him. It appeared that Father Patrick was going to trot right past Nuncio, but the latter dug in hard and held off his stablemate. Shake It Cerry put forth a dominating performance in the 49th edition of the $224,000 Kentucky Filly Futurity, stopping the timer in 1:52.2 for driver Ron Pierce and trainer Takter. The 1-5 public’s choice, a daughter of Donato Hanover-Solveig, pushed her career earnings to $1,562,205 for the Solveig’s Racing Partners. Shake It Cerry took the lead handily in rein to Pierce, trotting comfortably through fractions of :27.4, :56.2 and 1:25.1 before drawing off in the stretch by 4-1/2 lengths. Vanity Matters (David Miller) made a bid first over going to the three-quarters and held on to be second, while Scream And Shout (Yannick Gingras) got up for third.

Always B Miki and driver David Miller brushed first-over at the half mile marker and blew away the field in capturing the $218,300 first division of the Tattersalls Pace for three-year-old pacing colts at the Red Mile Saturday. It was He’s Watching and driver Tim Tetrick who took the early lead away from Capital Account (Brett Miller) at the opening quarter mile in :27.4. Then David Miller came charging on the outside with Always B Miki and rolled on by He’s Watching and opened up to the five length lead on the field. He’s Watching then spit out the bit and began to fade badly as the rest of the field raced around him and tried to catch up to Always B Miki. Past the three-quarters in 1:22.3, Always B Miki still held the field at bay and did so down the stretch to win in 1:49.3 by two open lengths. Capital Account held for second place with Caviart Luca (Brian Sears). “He (He’s Watching) looked fine leaving to take the lead,” said David Miller, “The quarter I thought was pretty soft at :27.4. It really did not feel like we were picking up any speed when I made my move. I knew I could not let them get a half in :56.4 and then have to try and run him down. “I went and took a shot and moved him (Always B Miki) around him (He’s Watching),” Miller said, “and my horse did the rest. When I come at them (He’s Watching) he (Tim Tetrick) was just starting his horse up and he wasn’t going to park me, he was going to cut me loose. I don’t know what happened to them after that. My horse finished up good. He seemed good gaited. He does get on a line now and then.” Always B Miki is sired by Always A Virgin and trained by Joe Holloway for the Bluewood Stable, Val D’Or Farms and the Roll The Dice Stable. It was his ninth win in 16 starts this year. He paid $2.40 to win. He’s Watching did finish the race but was in last place. Always B Miki In the second $218,300 division of the Tattersalls Pace, JK Endofanera and driver Yannick Gingras were able to get to the front and just held on at the wire for a 1:49.1 triumph. It was Melmerby Beach (Paul MacDonell) shooting to the early lead with Stevensville (Mark MacDonald) getting the two-hole trip to the opening quarter in :26.4 but the lead was short lived as Gringras send JK Endofanera first-over and they cleared by the half mile marker in :54.2. Let’s Drink On It with Brian Sears then came first-over and they gave outside cover to Winds Of Change (Brett Miller) as they sped by the three-quarters in 1:22.2. Then the action really heated up for JK Endofanera as Sears was coming on with Let’s Drink On It and Winds Of Change was also on the move on the outside and he closed fastest of all and nearly caught JK Endofanera, who held on for the win by a neck. Somesizesomestyle (Matt Kakaley) closed well to be third. “He (JK Endofanera) is probably not at this best on the front,” Gingras said. “I didn’t want to give Brian (Let’s Drink On It) the good cover so we went to the lead. I figured my horse is good enough to win it on the front.” It was win number seven on the season for JK Endofanera, who is sired by Art Major. He is trained by Ron Burke and owned and bred by the 3 Brothers Stables of New York. JK Endofanera paid $3.20 to win. JK Endofanera By Steven Wolf, for Harnesslink.com  

Always B Miki and He's Watching on Saturday will appear in the same race for the first time since the Meadowlands Pace in July, and Joe Hurley is looking forward to their next round. Hurley bred and co-owns Always B Miki, who finished second to He's Watching in the Meadowlands Pace despite starting from post nine and racing on the outside - three to four wide at times - the entire way. He's Watching won the race with a world-record-equaling 1:46.4 performance. The two horses meet Saturday in the first of two $218,300 Tattersalls Pace divisions for 3-year-old male pacers at The Red Mile in Lexington. Always B Miki, trained by Joe Holloway, starts from post No. 1 with driver David Miller. He's Watching, trained by Dave Menary, starts from post four with Tim Tetrick at the lines. "I've already got it planned out in my mind, but Dave Miller will probably do something entirely different than what I would do," Hurley said. "They'll be 1-2 going to the top of the stretch, and then we'll see. Miki's on top, Tetrick's in the two hole. Then we'll see who can turn it on, and Miki never stops." Always B Miki, named after Hurley's wife, comes into the Tattersalls off a career-best 1:47.4 win last weekend in his division of the Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile. He won by 6-1/4 lengths over Melmerby Beach, pulling away thanks to a :25.3 final quarter-mile. No horse came home faster that day. "I thought it was consistent with everything he's done that nobody's noticed because it's in Indiana," Hurley said, referring to Always B Miki having spent the time since the Meadowlands Pace at Hoosier Park. "He's been racing there in hand. He's a monster." Always B Miki has won eight of 15 races this year and finished worse than second only three times. He has earned $432,332 for Hurley and fellow owners Bluewood Stable and Val D'Or Farms. Since the Meadowlands Pace, the colt has raced six times, winning five. In those victories, no horse was nearer than 4-1/2 lengths of Always B Miki at the wire. Hurley, who races as Roll The Dice Stable, bred Always B Miki's father and mother. His sire, Always A Virgin, won more than $1 million in his career for Hurley, Bluewood Stable and Val D'Or Farms. His dam, Artstopper, was unraced but is a half-sister to stakes-winner Cheyenne Rei and also produced $714,154-earner Yagonnakissmeornot. The family also includes stakes-winners Ain't No Stopn Him and Lon Todd Hanover. "Virgin was terrific, but Miki is incredibly terrific fantastic," Hurley said. "He's absolutely the best horse I've had. I think everybody (in the ownership group) agrees this is the best ever. "His stride is just incredible. He's had very bad luck with some things that have happened, either by nature or by fate. Now he's getting a chance to show himself and he's just absolutely fantastic." Always B Miki's schedule following the Tattersalls includes the Indiana Sire Stakes championship and the Circle City at Hoosier Park. He could be supplemented to the Matron Stakes and is likely to be supplemented to the Breeders Crown. "I'm looking forward to taking on the best and proving that he is the best," Hurley said. "Hopefully we end up on top at the end of the year." In the Tattersalls Pace second division, North America Cup winner JK Endofanera, who handed Always B Miki his only loss in his last six starts, takes on a field that includes Little Brown Jug runner-up Let's Drink On It. There also are two divisions of the Glen Garnsey Memorial for 3-year-old female pacers. The first division is headlined by stakes-winners Uffizi Hanover and Gettingreadytoroll, both from the stable of Jimmy Takter, and New York Sire Stakes champion It Was Fascination. In the second division, the top five finishers in a Bluegrass Stakes division last week - Gallie Bythe Beach, Act Now, Beach Gal, Ali Blue, and Allstar Rating - meet again. Action for 2-year-olds includes four divisions of the International Stallion Stakes for male pacers, where Artspeak puts his perfect 7-for-7 record on the line in the third of the splits. by Ken Weingartner, for Harness Racing Communications  

Lexington, KY - Grand Circuit harness racing resumes on Friday at The Red Mile with no fewer than eight two-year-old stakes on the eleven race card. The $382,600 International Stallion Stakes (INSS) for colt trotters drew five divisions while the $253,000 filly pace split three ways.   The pacing fillies open the Friday matinee card in races one, three and five with the middle division looking the toughest on paper. That split features the Red Mile debut of undefeated World Champ JK She'salady for owner/breeders the 3 Brothers Stable of New York.   The Art Major filly from Presidential Lady has been just vicious thus far in her seven race career putting a few withering moves on the competition at Mohawk including the record-equaling 1:50.1 mile in the $441,600 She's A Great Lady final. Her most recent was an easy score in a division of the Kentuckiana stakes at Hoosier Park.   Trained in the Nancy Johansson barn and driven by Yannick Gingras, JK She'salady will find a pretty talented field waiting for her on Friday.   Chief among the competition is the speedy Bettor Be Steppin, who won the other Kentuckiana split and further impressed last week here in Lexington with a forwardly placed 1:52 win, closing it out with a 26.3 final quarter under no pressure. She races for the Val D'Or Farms, Rojan Stables and Ted Gewertz and is trained by Joe Holloway, who has long had a "way with the ladies".   The accomplished Bedroomconfessions also caught this division as did Hilary's Style and Heavenly Bride, both coming off excellent races in week one of the meet.   Two of the Bluegrass division winners from last week will meet in a division of the INSS carded as the day's tenth race. The Bank and Southwind Stryker square off for the top prize in the $76,100 contest. Both colts trotted in 1:53.4 in their respective Bluegrass start and both used a stalking trip to get the job done.   The Bank has a slight post advantage beginning from post two for trainer/driver Jimmy Takter. He rolled up second over, closing in 28 flat to win by a half-length. Bred by part owner Goran Falk he races for Falk and Christina Takter and has made just shy of $65,000 thus far.   Southwind Stryker (Muscle Hill x Soxeelady) was a winner for the very first time in the Bluegrass mile but is just shy of the $100,000 mark in earnings for the partnership of Millard, Van Camp, Taylor and trainer Brad Maxwell who gave $40,000 for him at the Lexington Selected Yearling Sale last fall. Driver Tim Tetrick gave him a good trip then said good things about the colt last week and has the return engagement this Friday.   It is by no means a two horse races as Haughton winner Centurion ATM and the highest priced yearling of 2013 Whom Shall I Fear (Father Patrick's little brother) are also a part of the talented field.   Friday post time is 1:00pm.   Nick Salvi

LEXINGTON, KY-- With the $500,000 Tattersalls Pace, a staple of The Red Mile's Grand Circuit showcases, slated for next week, two divisions of sophomore colt pacers competed on the Saturday, September 27th card in the $185,200 Bluegrass. Always B Miki parked for the first half of the mile, cleared the front into the far turn and sprinted home in :25.3 to win by 8 lengths in 1:47.4. Melmerby Beach claimed the front from Somestarsomewhere around the first turn. Public-choice Always B Miki floated off the gate and was first over in fifth through a :26.3 first quarter. Always B Miki soon hit the motor in the backstretch and got his nose in front of Melmerby Beach through a :54.4 (:28.1) half. Strolling past three-quarters in 1:22.1 (:27.2), Always B Miki was left unscathed by a late challenge from Melmerby Beach. Within a blink of an eye, Always B Miki was 6 lengths clear of Melmerby Beach, who would take second, and Capital Account, who would take third. Always B Miki stopped the clock in 1:47.4 (:25.3), the fastest mile of the night and a lifetime best. Earning $567,716 in his career, the son of Always A Virgin-Artstopper-Artsplace is owned by Bluewood Stable, Val D'or Farms, and Roll The Dice Stable, trained by Joe Holloway, and driven by David Miller. He paid $2.40 to win. "He gives me chills, too," David Miller said in response to Always B Miki's impressive mile. "He can motor along pretty good. He goes along pretty easily, and it's pretty hard to judge his speed because he does it so easily, but I knew he was pacing pretty good down by the wire. He was going easy the whole way." "He's a pretty nice horse," trainer Joe Holloway said. "He gets over the ground very easily." Always B Miki Limelight Beach, fresh off his victory in the Little Brown Jug, traveled wire-to-wire in the other division of the Bluegrass in 1:49.1. Heading straight to the pylons before the first turn, Limelight Beach secured the front. Big Boy Dreams tucked into the pocket, and Caviart Luca got away third. Limelight Beach paced by the opening panel in :27.4. Unchallenged through a half in :56.1 (:28.2) and three-quarters in 1:23.1 (:27), Limelight Beach was ready to sprint home. He's Watching applied pressure from first over while Somesizesomestyle drafted behind. Limelight Beach did drift off the pylons in his dash to the finish, but he held off He's Watching and Big Boy Dreams in 1:49.1 (:26). The son of Somebeachsomewhere-Benear-Badlands Hanover pushed his seasonal earnings to $515,038, with $725,230 credited to his overall career. Owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, M1 Stable, and Wingfield Brothers, trained by Ron Burke and driven by Yannick Gingras, he paid $4.80 to win. His 1:49.1 mile is a lifetime mark. "He was coming into his own heading into the Jug, and obviously came up big that day," driver Yannick Gingras said. "It was a huge mile here tonight." "Into the first turn, there was no speed, so I was able to rate him to the half," Gingras also said. "He's Watching has a huge half in him, but I figured, in :56, my horse could come home in a big half, too." Limelight Beach Live racing resumes on Sunday, September 28, with the $173,400 Bluegrass for three-year-old filly trotters and the $187,200 Bluegrass for three-year-old colt trotters.

LEXINGTON, KY-- Freshmen filly pacers competed in three divisions of the $287,600 Bluegrass stakes on Friday, September 26 at The Red Mile. With favorites dominating a majority of the evening, Ideal Nuggets defied the math and blew up the tote board at 173-1 in 1:50.4. Bedroomconfessions left for the top, while Ideal Nuggets was sent into the pocket. After a quarter in :27.4, Bedroomconfessions secured the top. Leading through a :56.1 (:28.2) half, Bedroomconfessions was soon challenged by favored Shakai Hanover. The two battled past three quarters in 1:23.4 (:27.3). Shakai Hanover abandoned the battle midway through the stretch. Given room, Ideal Nuggets slingshot from the pocket and by Bedroomconfessions to win in 1:50.4 (:27). Divine Caroline closed for second and Bedroomconfessions settled for third. Paying $249.20 to win, the Western Ideal-Rough Sketch-Art Major filly is owned by Robert and Lauren Tucker, trained by Ed Lohmeyer and was driven by David Miller. Breaking her maiden, her 1:50.4 mile is a lifetime mark. She has earned $100,623 this year. Bettor Be Steppin blazed around the oval to win in 1:52 as the 1/9 favorite. Hillary's Style got the lead, while Devil Child tucked into the pocket, and Bettor Be Steppin got away in third. Driver Corey Callahan gave the public choice the cue to brush to the lead into a :27.3 first quarter. Securing the front midway through the backstretch, she continued to lead through a :55.3 (:28) half-mile. Rock Her World pulled first over, with Seeking Nirvana drafting behind. Bettor Be Steppin managed to get a breather in a 1:25.2 (:29.4) third quarter. Bettor Be Steppin continued to lead through the stretch, while Hillary's Style attempted to slide up the inside. Rock Her World and Seeking Nirvana gave chase as Bettor Be Steppin sprinted home to a 1:52 (:26.3) victory. Owned by Val D'or Farms, Rojan Stables, and Ted Gewertz, and trained by Joe Holloway, the Bettor's Delight-Two Steppin' Sally-Western Hanover filly paid $2.20 to win. Bettor Be Steppin lowered her lifetime mark of 1:52.2, obtained a week ago at Hoosier Park. She has earned $209,487 this season. "I had to use her [Bettor Be Steppin] a little bit to get to the lead," driver Corey Callahan said. "Through the last turn, I was able to get a nice breather in, and, when I called on her, she stepped away. I think she had more if I needed it." Sassa Hanover commandeered the field shortly after the half and progressed to a 3-length victory over 4/5 favorite Heavenly Bride in 1:51. She's Heavenly took the front, with Crescent City taking second and Crucial Moment in third. Crescent City edged out of the pocket and swept by She's Heavenly after a first quarter in :28. Approaching the half, Sassa Hanover pulled first over and had a ¾-length lead through a :56 (:28) half-mile. She was strolling in control around the far turn, as She's Heavenly was flushed by Heavenly Bride en route to three-quarters. Sassa Hanover led by the third panel in 1:24.3 (:28.3). Sassa Hanover began to draw away from Crescent City chasing in second, as well as She's Heavenly and Heavenly Bride trying to close into their deficit. Sassa Hanover was victorious in 1:51 (:26.2) over Heavenly Bride, Crescent City, and a closing Zip Code Envy. The daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven-Sayo Hanover-Allamerican Native is owned by Burke Racing Stables, The Panhellenic Stables, Weaver Bruscemi, and Larry Karr, trained by Ron Burke and driven by Yannick Gingras. She paid $4.20 to win. Her mile of 1:51 is a lifetime mark, and her win puts her at $212,091 in seasonal earnings. "Ronnie told me to draw a line through that last start, as the track was bad," Yannick Gingras said. "We were planning on racing her from the back, but, getting away fourth, if I come first up, I carry Brian [Sears and Heavenly Bride] into the race, so I decided to move to the front. I had the plugs still in, and I showed her the whip to keep her to task, but she had some pace left." Racing resumes on Saturday, September 27 with the $331,000 Bluegrass for two-year-old colt pacers, $185,200 Bluegrass for three-year-old colt pacers, and the $146,600 Bluegrass for three-year-old filly pacers.

A total of 14 races have been established and after the dust settles, eight new Indiana Sires Stakes champions will be crowned. The first race will line up behind the starting gate at 5:15 p.m. Revamped for the 2014 season, the Indiana Sires Stakes program features five legs throughout the season, and from each leg, the top 20 horses return to compete in a final and consolation. The 2014 stakes season will culminate with the top ten horses from each of the previous $75,000 finals returning to compete in a $200,000 Super Final on October 18 at Hoosier Park. "Our Hoosier Champions Night has become a much-anticipated event among horseman and racing fans alike," Hoosier Park's Vice President and General Manager of Racing, Rick Moore noted. "The 2014 season has already exceeded my expectations and I am excited to offer racing fans another stellar night of racing. To have horses of this quality racing at Hoosier Park speaks volumes to where our racing program has come and where it is going." In its' 21st season of live harness racing, Hoosier Park is in the midst of one of its' fastest season to date. Sweet Lou recently lowered the overall track record to 1:47.2 in the $250,000 Dan Patch Invitational at Hoosier Park on August 8. Of the eight respective Indiana Sires Stakes divisions, five of the eight have produced track record breaking or equaling miles this season. Freaky Feet Pete not only holds the Hoosier Park track record for two-year-old pacing colts but was also a national season's record holder with his 1:50.4 score in Indiana Sires Stakes action earlier in the season. Guided by Trace Tetrick, Freaky Feet Pete will look to score his second $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for two-year-old pacing colts from the trailing post ten on Saturday. Always B Miki recently shattered the track record for three-year-old pacing colts with a 1:48.4 score in the last $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final and followed that up with a win in his most recent elimination. Trained by Joe Holloway, Always B Miki will look to score his second Indiana Sires Stakes final win with driver Peter Wrenn in the sulky from post eight. In the three-year-old trotting colt ranks, Rose Run Parker returned to his winning ways and re-established his own track record with a 1:54 score in the elimination round of stakes action last week at Hoosier Park. Trained by Ron Burke, Rose Run Parker will start from post three in the $75,000 final for Hoosier Park's all-time leading driver, Ricky Macomber Jr. Following suit, Airman Batten also re-established his own track record in the two-year-old trotting colt ranks with a 1:55.4 score in his elimination. Driven by Lewayne Miller, Airman Batten will look to keep his five-race winning streak in-tact from post four in the field of ten for trainer Erv Miller. The Erv Miller Stable will also send out Andi's Alana who will put her eight-race win streak on the line in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for three-year-old trotting fillies. Undefeated in eight starts this season, Andi's Alana will start from post seven with her regular pilot Lewayne Miller in the sulky. Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule with a daily post time of 5:15 p.m. The 160-day, all harness racing meet will offer an extended stakes schedule and be conducted through November 15. by Emily Gaskin, for Hoosier Park  

WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 27, 2014 -- The Lunch Pail powered to the front and rolled to a comfortable victory in a career-best 1:51.1, fastest in Wednesday's $60,000 Pennsylvania Stallion Series at The Meadows. The event for 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers was contested over three divisions, with Sean Liam Q and Brioni also taking $20,000 splits. Eric Ledford enjoyed a stake double behind The Lunch Pail and Sean Liam Q. The Meadows will host the championships for all eight stallion series divisions Sept. 8-9. The Lunch Pail dueled with Avalanche Hanover before grabbing the lead and allowing his rival to stalk from the pocket. But Avalanche Hanover couldn't cut into the margin late and settled for second, 1-1/2 lengths back, with Hemingway third. "I wanted to cut it with him," Ledford said. "Last time he was out here he raced really well on the front end. We got away with a pretty nice second quarter, so things worked out pretty good." Joe Holloway trains The Lunch Pail, a Yankee Cruiser-Noble Marty gelding, for Michael Ouriel. Looped while vying for the early lead, Sean Liam Q persevered and prevailed handily in 1:51.2, 2-1/2 lengths better than the rallying Stone Cold Shark. Jins Shark earned show. "We got strung out in a 26.3 quarter -- that wasn't my objective," Ledford said of the son of McArdle-Taylor Lou Q. "We were committed to the front after that. But he was pretty strong, considering the fractions." Ross Croghan conditions Sean Liam Q for Steve Stewart, Bourbon Creek Stable, Donald Robinson and Michael Robinson. Brioni competed in the Adios at The Meadows, and while he couldn't go with that crowd, he favorably impressed Mike Wilder. "Obviously, he was up against some of the toughest horses in the country, and he wasn't humiliated in any way," Wilder said. "When you get a horse like that in the stallion series, you're pretty confident you have a pretty good shot. He was push button." Buoyed by that observation, Wilder sent Brioni on a quarter-pole move that carried him to victory in 1:52.2, 1-1/4 lengths ahead of Bristol Bay. Well Said Stride completed the ticket. Robin Cruise trains the son of Four Starzzz Shark-Armbro Bahama for owner/breeder Ronald Michelon. In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot, Cowgirl Hall matched her own track record for older mares -- a mark she shares with Daylon Miracle -- when she scored a front-end victory in 1:52.4. ER Ellie was 8 lengths back in second, with True Day Dream third. Dave Palone drove the 5-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Centerfold Hall for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable. Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Jack Piatt III and Michael Rosenthal. Cowgirl Hall extended her career bankroll to $579,463. Dan Rawlings drove five winners on the 16-race card while Palone and Wilder each fashioned a triple. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday, when the card features the Tarport Effrat, a $199,980 PA Sires Stake for sophomore colt and gelding pacers with a field headlined by Adios winner McWicked.

Hemingway finished second, while race favorite Brioni finished third. In the second division, it was Sean Liam Q scoring the victory.

Sean Liam Q is owned by Steve Stewart, Don & Michael Robinson, and the Bourbon Creek Stables, trained by Ross Croghan, and was driven by George Napolitano Jr. In Division three, it was The Lunch Pail living up to favorite status.

He is owned by Michael Ouriel, trained by Joe Holloway, and was driven by Dave Miller. Bristol Bay finished second, while A Plus Hanover was third.

MANALAPAN, NJ - July 31, 2014 - If the pieces all fall into place, the connections of Western Vintage could be sipping champagne on Saturday. the son of Western Ideal is making his return to the races, after being sidelined since late June, in the $225,000 Anthony Abbatiello New Jersey Classic, the fourth of 15 races on the Hambletonian Day program on Saturday, August 2, 2014 at the Meadowlands. The New Jersey Classic and its filly companion event, the $100,000 Thomas D'Altrui Miss New Jersey for fillies, are restricted to New Jersey-sired three-year-old pacers. Both events are sponsored by the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey. In a well-balanced field, Western Vintage is rated the 5-2 second choice [Doo Wop Hanover is 9-5] and will leave from post two with Brian Sears at the lines. Last season, Western Vintage won five of eight races and earned $316,838. His victories included the $150,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Championship for two-year-old pacing colts and a division of the Bluegrass Stakes at the Red Mile. He finished second in the $648,850 Metro Pace at Mohawk. This all marked the bargain colt - he cost only $7,000 at the 2012 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale - as a potential divisional star at three. Health issues, however, detoured Western Vintage after four starts this spring. "We gave him a break after the Hempt [on June 21] for a couple of reasons," said Perry Soderberg, the colt's co-owner. "One, because he had some really tough races up to that point, and two, his blood work wasn't perfect so we needed some time to improve that. It is a long year and another year after this one, so we want to take care of the horse." Western Vintage opened his 2014 campaign with a New Jersey Sire Stakes win in 1:49.4 on May 17 at the Meadowlands and a week later was second to Doo Wop Hanover in the $100,000 final. Then it was on the road to Mohawk Raceway for the North America Cup elims [he finished fourth] and to Pocono for the Hempt [he was eighth]. Trainer Nancy Johansson qualified Western Vintage twice in July, including a 1:50.3 clocking and five and a half length victory on July 19 in the hands of new pilot Brian Sears. "Well, Yannick [Gingras, who previously drove the colt] has been great, but he has [Jimmy] Takter's and [Ron] Burke's horses to choose from down the road, and they have been better than mine so far this year," Soderberg explained. "I know Brian has JK Endofanera and other options as well, but I am thankful that he wants to drive him now. "All in all, I thought it was time to get the horse used to different drivers," he added. "He has been a bit tricky to drive, but he better get used to different drivers; that's how this business works." Swedish-born Soderberg, who has been evaluating horses since 1986, usually picks out yearlings for others, primarily trainer Jimmy Takter and his owners. But when no one wanted Western Vintage, he purchased the colt for himself for $7,000. Marvin Katz of Toronto bought an interest last October. With $53,890 earned this year, Western Vintage now has a bankroll of $370,728. "Western Vintage is coming in to this race in good shape," said Soderberg. "He qualified well, and I think he is the type of horse that can race good after a break." Post time on Saturday, August 2, 2014 is 12 noon with gates opening at 10 a.m. Admission is $5. The $1 million Hambletonian [Race 13] and $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks [Race 12] and the $300,650 John Cashman Jr. Memorial Trot will be featured on the live television broadcast from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network [for Channel Finder - www.cbssportsnework.com].

MANALAPAN, NJ - July 30, 2014 - Saturday's Hambletonian Day 15-race card at the Meadowlands is loaded with rich stakes worth nearly $3.6 million in purse money, including the $225,000 Anthony Abbatiello New Jersey Classic and its filly companion race, the $100,000 Thomas D'Altrui Miss New Jersey. The two stakes for New Jersey-sired three-year-old pacers are early in the card - the third race for the Miss New Jersey and the fourth race for the New Jersey Classic - and have the possibility of being two of the most contentious and bettor-friendly events, with no prohibitive favorites. Racing conditions for the two stakes were amended to eliminate eliminations. The finals are limited to the 10 highest lifetime money-winning horses in the entry box. To further sweeten the pot, even those who do not share in the top five purse distribution will not go home empty-handed. The connections of the New Jersey Classic colts finishing sixth through 10 will receive $1,500 each while the connections of the Miss New Jersey fillies will receive $1,000 each. "We are very pleased that we have full and competitive fields for both stakes, in fact, 11 entered in each with 10 going postward," said Tom Luchento, president of the Standardbred Breeders & Owners Association of New Jersey [SBOANJ], which sponsors the two races. "We feel stallions will return to New Jersey once we have casino-infused purses, a likelihood in the next few years, but for now we are trying our best to make it worthwhile for breeders to support our program and owners to buy New Jersey-sired offspring with the opportunity to compete in such events as the New Jersey Classic and Miss New Jersey," Luchento added. Post time on Saturday, August 2, 2014 is 12 noon with gates opening at 10 a.m. Admission is $5. The $1 million Hambletonian [Race 13] and $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks [Race 12] and the $300,650 John Cashman Jr. Memorial Trot will be featured on the live television broadcast from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on CBS Sports Network [for Channel Finder - www.cbssportsnework.com].
