JJ Hall started from post seven in the field of nine after the scratch of Southwind Pepino in the condition trot race going for a purse of $18,000. He's usually driven by Kayne Kauffman, but Kauffman had one of his own trainees in the field, so Scott Mogan called upon Ronnie Wrenn Jr.for the assignment.

She's Shocking was driven by Kayne Kauffman and they pushed the gate away, determined to set the pace. After clocking fractions of 26.4, 54.4 and 1.23.1, it was TT's Little Lass who was sitting in perfect striking position behind She's Shocking to benefit from the quick pace. She's Shocking finished second and Eve Marie Seelster completed the trifecta. Carol's Comet and Aaron Merriman prevailed in the $20,000 Open Pace in 1.50.4. Carol's Comet is a five-year-old gelded son of Yankee Cruiser. He's trained by Ron Potter for his connections.

Final Breath is a 4-year old gelding by Victory Sam. Final Breath is no stranger to the winner's circle. He has 27 career starts with 18 wins and a bank roll of $249,128.00.   He's owned and was bred by Duane Lowe of Malta, Ohio and is trained and normally driven by Hugh "Sandy" Beatty. This week's Open Trot also had another Beatty trainee, Southwind Pepino, who is partially owned by his trainer and driver, Hugh Beatty.   Beatty drives both of these outstanding trotters on a normal basis. When the draw came out and they were in together, Beatty had to drive Southwind Pepino.   Beatty called upon Dan Noble for the driving assignment and he didn't disappoint.   The stablemates sat off the pace early getting away fifth and sixth. Southwind Pepino pulled out just before the half, giving Noble and Final Breath a second over trip.   Southwind Pepino had to trot three wide down the backside before clearing to the top at the three quarters in 1.25.1 with Final Breath in tow.   It was a battle to the wire for the stablemates and Final Breath had the upper hand in this battle. Stopping the timer in 1.54.3, also a new career best for Final Breath.Southwind Pepino finished second and Vibe Blue Chip was third for trainer, Ron Burke.   The pacing mares had their turn in the seventh race on the card.   The full field of 10 mares posted an outstanding resume and was setting up to be an exciting co-feature.When the gates folded they went stacked four wide to the quarter in 26.3. Native Dream and Josh Sutton were determined to set the pace. Sutton and Native Dream hit the half in 54.4 and her stablemate, Igottafeelinfran grinded it out three wide down the backside. They hit three quarters in 1.23.1.   Betterluvnexttime driven by Ronnie Wrenn Jr.and trained by Virgil Morgan Jr.sat off the pace early, but was getting towed in to the race with cover.   When Wrenn told the mare lets go at the three quarters in 1.23.1, she responded. At the top of the stretch she was tipped out four wide and given plenty of track for clear sailing and she crossed the wire in 1.52.1.   A Sham Of Amber had late pace for driver and trainer Kayne Kauffman and Native Dream was third.That makes three consecutive victories for this 6-year-old mare by American Ideal and increased her earnings to $385,455.00.   From Scioto Downs Racino

Camille, the lone million dollar winner in the field, showed her back class to a field of local mares in posting an impressive 1:52.1 triumph to win the $50,000 Laverne Hill Memorial Pace at Scioto Downs Saturday. Driven by Chris Page, the duo waited early on as She’s Shocking (Kayne Kauffman) took the early lead with Radar Contact (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.) in the garden spot but right after the opening quarter mile in :27.2, Page sent Camille to the front. From that point on it was catch me if you can as Camille led the field past the half mile marker in :55.2 and the three-quarters in 1:23.4 as Native Dream (Josh Sutton) tried coming first-over in vain. As they came down the stretch, Page urged his mare on and she responded, winning by two easy lengths. Trained by Ron Burke, it was the first win in eight starts this year for Camille. The six-year-old mare by Camluck is owned by the Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Brucemi, M 1 Stable and J. Platt, III. She paid $4.00 to win as the even money favorite. “We told (Chris) Page to drive her anyway he wanted to,” said Mickey Burke after the race. “Just go with her. That’s what he did and she raced good.” By Steve Wolf, for Harnesslink.com

World champion harness racing mares Shebestingin and Maven each set all age track records in capturing their respective Grand Circuit races at Miami Valley Raceway in Lebanon, Ohio Sunday evening. Shebestingin and driver David Miller started off the speedy night by setting the all age track record with an ultra impressive 1:50.4 triumph in capturing the $50,300 inaugural Sam ‘Chip’ Noble, III Memorial Pace. The Grand Circuit event for older pacing mares started off with a bang as She’s Shocking (Kayne Kauffman) went to the early lead off the starting gate with Yagonnakissmeornot (Daniel Dube) taking the pocket seat. But right away Camille (Yannick Gingras) came first-over and took command. But that lead was short lived as Dube came first-over with Yagonnakissmeornot at the opening quarter mile in :27. The field settled down slightly, but only for a moment as on the second turn David Miller came first-over with Shebestingin and they started up to challenge the leaders passing the half mile marker in :55.3. Down the backstretch the action began to heat up as Shebestingin closed the margin on Yagonnakissmeornot at the three-quarters in 1:23.2. Shebestingin then collared Yagonnakissmeornot and had a slight lead as they came off the final turn and headed down the stretch. Shebestingin then showed her world class ability as she pulled away from Yagonnakissmeornot and with a :27.2 last quarter mile, stopped the teletimer with a one and one-half length triumph in 1:50.4. Yagonnakissmeornot held for second with a late closing Jerseylicious (Corey Callahan) third. “It was a little nerve wracking with her as usual,” said winning trainer Joe Holloway. That was because Shebestingin first refused the starting gate and caused a recall before the start of the race, which the mare has done in the past. “She is just a great horse. She has her quirks. She can be a little tough at time but she is so great.” It was the second start and second straight win on the year for Shebestingin. The four-year-old mare by Bettor’s Delight is owned by Val D’Or Farms of Millstone, NJ, Ted Geweritz of NY and L & L Devisser, LLC of Holland, MI. Shebestingin paid $5.00 to win. The prior all age track record for pacers was 1:51.1 set by Justified on April 26. The very next race racing fans got to see the world champion and Dan Patch Award winning mare, Maven, put on a trotting clinic for driver Yannick Gingras as she scored a two and three-quarter length victory in track record time of 1:53.3 in winning the $60,000 Miami Valley Raceway Distaff Trot. The race started off with Rockin With Dewey and driver Jason Brewer going out to the early lead with Cowgirl Hall (Dave Palone) sitting in second place and Maven, who had also left out of the gate hung on the outside. With no position to drop in along the rail, Gingras wasted no time and sent Maven to the front at the opening quarter mile in a speedy :27 seconds. But that was all she wrote for the rest of the field. Maven then led the way to the half mile in :56.4. Ma Chere Hall (Corey Callahan) came first-over and gave cover on the outside to D’Orsay (Daniel Dube) but by the three-quarters in 1:26 the effort was in vain as Ma Chere Hall broke stride at the top of the stretch and Maven kicked in a :27.3 final quarter to win going away. Rockin with Dewey was second with D’Orsay third. The time of the race set the all age track record for trotters in 1:53.3. The prior mark was 1:54.1 set by Victory Is Coming back on April 11. “I was a little afraid when we got hung on the outside at the start,” said winning trainer Jonas Czernyson. “But Yannick said she felt strong and just went on with her. She raced very good tonight. The track was very nice tonight and the crew did a very nice job in preparing it so I hope I will be coming back to race again. “We may race her (Maven) one more time at home,” Czernyson said. “And then go to the Eliteloop (Sweden), but either way we are definitely going overseas.” It was the first start this year for Maven, a five-year-old mare by Glidemaster, who is owned by W.J. Donovan of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. She now has career earnings of $1,453,969. As part of the closing night ceremonies for Miami Valley Raceway’s inaugural race meet, presentations were made to the meets leading driver and trainer. Kayne Kauffman was the leading driver with 86 wins and Virgil Morgan, Jr. took the honors as the leading trainer in a tight battle with 33 victories from his stable. by Steve Wolf, for Harnesslink.com

LEBANON, OH. - The "Roarin' Grand" is on its way to southwest Ohio as Miami Valley Raceway presents its first-ever national stakes races this Sunday night (May 4). The $50,300 Sam 'Chip' Noble III Memorial pace for older pacing mares and the $60,000 Miami Valley Distaff for older trotting mares are scheduled as the 8th and 9th races on an 11 race program which will bring the curtain down on the new track's inaugural season. The combined earnings of the two fields is $7,542,251 and combined win total is 214 races. "We couldn't be more pleased with the response to our first national stakes offerings," said Race Secretary Gregg Keidel. "We have horses that have earned over $1 million and winners of many of the most prestigious stakes races in North America, including Breeder's Crowns. It will be great to host Maven, one of the absolute best trotting mares in the world; and having an array of nationally-acclaimed drivers, including two Hall Of Famers, fly in for these events is certainly a big plus!" Yagonnakissmeornot, fresh off a second place finish in the $371,400 Blue Chip Matchmaker series final at Yonkers in which she won four preliminary legs, has been tabbed the 2-1 morning line favorite in the Chip Noble Memorial-honoring one of the most talented and respected horsemen in Ohio harness racing history, who succumbed to cancer earlier this year. Driver Daniel Dube will start from the two-hole with the half-million dollar earner who is trained by Rene Allard. Despite the fact she has won more races in 2014 than the rest of the field combined there are some other extremely talented mares to deal with. Shebestingin will start from the four-hole with Hall Of Famer and local driving legend David Miller on her lines. The Joe Holloway-trainee has a four-race win streak entering this contest including an eye-popping 1:50.4 win in her only 2014 start. She won the Nadia Lobell, the Matron and the Glen Garnsey in her final 2013 starts. Jerseylicious is another outstanding mare who won nine times last season and earned $295,154. Corey Callahan will sulky-sit for trainer Wayne Givens. The powerful Ron Burke stable will be represented by Camille, a six-year-old mare with over $1 million in her bankroll. Yannick Gingras will be at Miami Valley to guide her. Three mares with Ohio connections round out the field: Ohmybelle (Tyler Smith), She's Shocking (Kayne Kauffman) and Best Impressions (Josh Sutton). The Jonas Czernyson stable, ripe with many of the top trotters in the United States, has four mares entered in the Miami Valley Distaff, including morning line favorite Maven at 4-5. With special permission from the Ohio State Racing Commission all four of Czernyson's horses will be uncoupled for wagering purposes making for a most interesting and competitive race. Maven has won 25 of 40 lifetime races and earned a remarkable $1.4 million. She won the older mares Breeder's Crown last October and also took her lifetime speed record winning in 1:51.4 over the Delaware, Ohio half-mile track in September. Regular driver Yannick Gingras will steer Maven from the five-hole behind the starting gate. Czernyson owns a piece of all three of the other entrants from his stable with a variety of partners. D'Orsay (Daniel Dube) has been listed as the 4-1 second choice while stablemates Ma Chere Hall (Corey Callahan, 6-1) and Mistery Woman (David Miller, 10-1) also have the credentials to make the race extremely exciting. Trainer Benoit Beillargeon has entered Rockin With Dewey (Jason Brewer, 6-1), who already has four 2014 triumphs at Woodbine Raceway in Canada. Cowgirl Hall (Dave Palone, 8-1) will carry the Burke stable banner into the race; while Daylon Miracle (Aaron Merriman, 12-1) and Angies Lucky Star (Trevor Henry, 15-1) round out the talented field. Post time for the season-ending Sunday night program at Miami Valley is 6:30 p.m. From Miami Valley Raceway Publicity Department

Last season's dominant Ohio freshman trotting filly In The Grippers gets her 2014 campaign underway at Miami Valley Raceway on Friday night as the 2014 Ohio Sires Stakes season begins with five divisions of 3-year-old fillies. All Ohio Sires Stakes races will carry a $40,000 purse. In The Grippers is the 8-5 favorite in the fourth race and will have Chris Page in the bike for trainer Virgil Morgan, Jr. Last year she won $157,494 while winning six of her eight starts. She took her 1:58f mark winning the Ohio Sires Stakes championship at Scioto in September. She is coming off three qualifying races at Miami Valley Raceway, including a recent 1:58.3 clocking. Second choice in this OSS split is Anniesbluejeanbaby who was timed in 1:57.4 in her first start at Northfield Park. Driver Page and trainer Morgan will have another strong contender in race six on Friday for 3-year-old pacing fillies in Fayco Filly, a top star in OSS action last season. She drew the inside post position while her chief rival Rosy Fire will start from post eight. Fayco Filly was parked through a brutal opening half-mile in the James K. Hackett Memorial at Miami Valley and should get an easier trip starting from the inside. Rosy Fire was an impressive 1:57f winner in a recent qualifier at Miami Valley. Turbochargedroxie will be trotting up a storm for trainer Danny Collins in race eight and Dan Noble is slated to be in the bike. In her only start of the season, she rallied from far from the pace to finish second, timed in 2:00.2, at Miami Valley. A great duel between Crown Time Keeper and Paydaze On The Way shapes up in race 10 as the two pacing soph lasses are off to a great start this season. They finished 1-2 in the Hackett Memorial with Crown Time Keeper getting the edge. Paydaze On The Way is from the powerful Ron Burke Stable and Kayne Kauffman is slated to drive while Chris Page will handle the lines on Crown Time Keeper, who is unbeaten in a pair of starts this season for trainer Steve Carter. Rose Run Princess, a game and talented trotting filly, looms the favorite in the 12th race of the evening and final OSS event. She will be steered by Mike Wilder for trainer Devan Miller. Last year Rose Run Princess earned $116,722 with four wins and four seconds in nine starts. Ohio Sires Stakes action continues at Miami Valley on Saturday night when the sophomore colts and geldings do battle. by Dean Hoffman, for the Ohio Racing Commission

LEBANON, OH. - A pair of $25,000 James K. Hackett Memorial championship races were contested on Saturday night at Miami Valley Raceway, followed by an $8,500 Open Handicap pace that resulted in a harness racing all-age track record clocking.   Ohio-sired three-year-old fillies battled in the first Hackett final with favored Crown Time Keeper (Chris Page), one of the elimination heat victors last week, winning the war in 1:55. The triumphant lass was pressured to the half mile marker in :55 flat, but had enough in the tank through the stretch to hold off pocket-sitting Paydaze On The Way (Kayne Kauffman), the other elimination winner, and show finisher A P P Panda (Greg Grismore).   Crown Time Keeper is owned by Esther Crownover, who has raced harness horses continuously for over 30 years, and trained by Steve Carter. The daughter of Feelin Friskie now has seven wins and seven place finishes in just 17 lifetime starts.   A son of Feelin Friskie captured the colts division of the Hackett Memorial as well. Friskie Adam (Kyle Ater) took advantage of a relatively soft :57.1 first half before speeding home in :56.1 to stop the timer in 1:53.2 and earn the lion's share of the purse. Chance I Might (Page) and Dibs (Jim Pantaleano) shadowed the winner throughout but couldn't get closer than 2-1/2 lengths at the wire.   Dr. Jerry Maloon Stable owns Friskie Adam, who now has six career victories. He was broke and campaigned in his freshman campaign by the late Sam 'Chip' Noble, and has been turned over to veteran conditioner Dan Ater for his sophomore season.   The fastest horse in the short three-month history of Miami Valley Raceway is now Justified, who scorched the highly-acclaimed five-eighths mile oval in 1:51.1. Driver Chris Page took no prisoners in the $8500 Open Handicap coasting through fractions of :27.1, :55.4 and 1:23 on the way the the record-setting performance. Bursting Blaze (Josh Sutton) was 1-3/4 lengths back with I Found My Beach (Grismore) finishing third.   Justified is trained by Ron Burke and is co-owned by Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.   Miami Valley has just seven programs left in its 65-night inaugural meet which started February 8. The final three nights will include multiple $40,000 divisions of the Ohio Sires Stakes for pacing and trotting fillies on Friday (May 2), multiple $40,000 divisions of the Ohio Sires Stakes for pacing and trotting colts following the simulcast presentation of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday (May 3), and conclude with a pair of Grand Circuit events on Sunday night, May 4.   An impressive list of nominees, with career earnings in excess of $20 million dollars and including several past Breeders Crown champions, are expected to make the $50,000 Chip Noble Memorial pace for older mares and the $60,000 Miami Valley Distaff for older trotting mares a pair of Grand Circuit races to remember.   Gregg Keidel
