TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, September 24, 2016 - With eight race days left to the harness racing meet at the Hippodrome 3R, the weekly battle continues this Sunday to see who will be the winningest horse of the season. Four horses are competing in two of the feature races at 3R Sunday who are all vying for the title. In the ten race pace the three favorites in the race are all contenders. SOS Mach Xtreme leads the field on the strength of nine wins this year, five of them at 3R. He starts from post four for driver Stephane Brosseau and trainer Francis Richard and comes into the race on a four-race winning streak. The six-year-old gelding by Mach Three was super last week at 3R for Brosseau, leading from start to finish by six open lengths in 1:56.3 and earlier this season scored a lifetime mark of 1:55. Beach Runner A M goes from post eight for driver Sylvain Lacaille and of his seven wins this year, six of them have come at 3R, which ties him with St Kitts, as the leading winning horses this season. Two starts back the nine-year-old gelded son of Beach Of Faith also wired the field at 3R in 1:56.3 and the prior week won in 1:56 for trainer Alain Martin. Bali goes from post six for driver Mario Charron and this five-year-old gelding by Bali sports an impressive ten wins in 21 starts this year, five of them at 3R. Bali has raced the last few weeks on the Quebec Fair Circuit and comes back to 3R on a two-race winning streak for trainer Marie Claude Auger. Now comes the 11th race pace where St Kitts puts her two-race winning streak on the line. She has started nine times this year, all at 3R and has six wins. St Kitts is just a three-year-old filly by Somebeachsomewhere who did not race at age 2. Trained by Maxime Velaye, St Kitts starts from the rail for driver Stephane Brosseau and when she minds her manners on the racetrack, is very tough to beat. According to Velaye, St Kitts has a bit of an attitude and must be handled with care before the start of the race as she has in the past refused the starting gate. Last week Brosseau, driving St Kitts for the first time, was able to get her not only up to the gate, but led the field from start to finish, winning in a moderate slow time of 1:59.1, but winning none the less and having to race against older competition. Her rival from last week, Sagawi, also a three-year-old gelding, starts alongside in post two for driver Jocelyn Gendron and figures to be in the hunt once again. The race favorite is D G's Ninja from post four for driver Jonathan Lachance. Also only age three, D G's Ninja has been racing against the best sophomore pacers in Quebec this season and has just one win in nine starts for trainer Guylaine Fortin, but he has been race timed in 1:56 in his last start. Also a contender in the race is Magster (post three) and return winners Windsong Louis (post eight) and Clinton Panic (post five). Missing from the driver's colony on Sunday is 3R's leading driver Louis-Philippe Roy and veteran reinsman Gatean Lamy. First race post time Sunday is 1:30 pm.

CAMPBELLVILLE, ON - September 23 - A fantastic group of older pacing mares will square off Saturday night at Mohawk Racetrack in the $311,000 Milton Stakes. Division leader Lady Shadow headlines the field of 10 and is seeking her ninth win of the season. The Ron Adams trainee is looking to add a Milton Stakes victory to go along with her Roses Are Red score from earlier this season. The last horse to sweep both of Woodbine Entertainment's signature events for pacing mares in the same season was Moving Pictures in 2007. Lady Shadow has earned more than $556,000 this season and is nearing $1.4 million in career earnings. Last Saturday, she won her elimination for the Milton by a pair of lengths in 1:51. Yannick Gingras has been the regular driver this season behind Lady Shadow, but will not be at Mohawk this Saturday to drive her in the Milton. James MacDonald will instead get the driving assignment behind the 8-5 morning line favourite. MacDonald is no stranger to the Milton Stakes, as last season he won the event with Venus Delight. He also has driven Lady Shadow in two of her starts this season along with qualifying her on a pair of occasions. Lady Shadow's rival and former stablemate Solar Sister will start to her right in post position four. Solar Sister got the better of her rival in their last meeting on August 28th at Tioga Downs in the Artiscape. The Gregg McNair trainee came first up and grinded away at Lady Shadow before eventually taking the lead in the stretch. A four-year-old daughter of Mach Three, Solar Sister is having an outstanding season in her first campaign against older horses. The McNair trainee has won four of 12 starts and has only missed the board once all season. Solar Sister, a winner of over $1.1 million in her career, finished third in her Milton elimination and will have her regular tag-team partner Doug McNair in the sulky. While Lady Shadow was an expected winner in her elimination last week, Wrangler Magic stunned many at 52-1 in the other split. The former Ontario Sires Stakes standout has had her ups and downs in her four-year-old season, but may be finding her best stride at the right time for driver Sylvain Filion and trainer Stephane Larocque. Wrangler Magic, a winner of nearly $800,000, will start from the rail. The 10 mares in Saturday's Milton Stakes have combined to earn $8,356,008 during their careers. Yagonnakissmeornot ($1.4 million) and Venus Delight ($1 million) join Lady Shadow and Solar Sister as the four millionaires in the field. The Milton Stakes has been carded as Race 7 on Saturday's 11-race program. The $400,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Championships are also taking place Saturday at Mohawk. Fans at Mohawk Saturday will receive an Ontario Sires Stakes T-Shirt with the purchase of a live racing program. The Ontario Sires Stakes will also be giving away prizes throughout the night with their Trivia Spin and Win game on the main floor of the Grandstand. Post time for Saturday's stakes card is 7:30 p.m. Below is the full field for the Milton Stakes. $311,000 Milton Stakes 1. Wrangler Magic - Sylvain Filion - Stephane Larcoque 2.

Nichols, N.Y. -- Solar Sister ($9.50) stole the show in the final 150 yards of Sunday (August 28) afternoon's stakes-laden harness racing card at Tioga Downs, dueling down prohibitive favorite Lady Shadow for a 1:49.4 triumph in the $200,000 Artiscape distaff pace. Favorites were upended in the Empire Breeders Classics as well, as No Clouds Bluechip ($7.00) and Fresh Cut ($36.00) both took top honors in their respective events for New York-sired 3-year-old pacers. On the undercard, trainer-driver Ãke Svanstedt swept a trio of W. N. Reynolds Memorial events for 2-year-old trotters. Tasked with a second-row start in a field of 10, Solar Sister sat just of a contested pace in the initial stages of the Artiscape, working into fifth early as Lady Shadow (Yannick Gingras) pushed clear of Table Talk (Andy Miller) after a :26.2 first quarter. On approach to the clubhouse turn, Doug McNair angled Solar Sister first-over, only offering mild progress into a :54 half mile. The 4-year-old Mach Three mare did her best work up the far side, working to within a length of Lady Shadow through a :27.2 third quarter and subsequently dueling with the 1-1/8-mile world record holder. The two drew off from a fading Table Talk, and Solar Sister dueled to the fore in mid-stretch. Solar Sister's 1:49.4 mile time gives her a share of the track record for 4-year-old pacing mares that was established by Anndrovette five years ago. Lady Shadow would have to settle for runner-up honors as the 2-5 favorite, while Devil Child (David Miller) sustained a massive three-wide bid off the far turn to capture third. Gregg McNair trains the homebred Solar Sister for Ontarians David Willmot and Clay Horner. Favorites were upended in both Empire Breeders Classic events as well, with No Clouds Bluechip and Fresh Cut both prevailing off cozy stalking trips. In the $239,225 Filly Classic, Brett Miller pushed No Clouds Bluechip into play with just over a quarter mile to go, overtaking a fading Angels Rockn Pink (Mark MacDonald) before engaging Wishy Washy Girl (Jim Morrill, Jr.) on approach to the far turn. The Roll With Joe filly edged clear authoritatively, sprinting off by 4-3/4 lengths en route to a 1:50.1 triumph as the second favorite. Wine Snob (John Campbell) posted belated uncovered gains to take second at 59-1, while even-money favorite Penpal (Pat Lachance) could only overcome stale early cover enough to save third down the grandstand side. John Berger trains No Clouds Bluechip for owners Richard Carney, Farrell Carney, and Barbara Berger. The development of the $240,475 Classic for colts and geldings came as no surprise, but the outcome stunned. Marcus Miller pushed forward early with Fresh Cut and ultimately established a cozy pocket trip with a circuit to go after yielding to 1-4 favorite American Passport (Scott Zeron) at the winning post. While the shape of the race held true to expected form, Fresh Cut's strong turn of foot from the pocket in the final eighth of a mile proved plenty to reel in American Passport and also stave off a late bid from 41-1 runner-up Stolen Glimpse (Yannick Gingras) for a 1:51.1 victory. American Passport ultimately faded to third after he was gathered in. Erv Miller trains Fresh Cut, a son of American Ideal, for the Bay Pond Racing Stable. Svanstedt and Muscle Hill sweep Reynolds Already renowned for his mastery in the kingdom of trotting, Svanstedt revealed why that contention possesses such veracity as he conditioned and steered New Jersey Viking (Muscle Hill-Hall Of Wishes), Ice Attraction (Muscle Hill-The Ice Queen) and Evelyn (Muscle Hill-Viva Las Lindy) to victory in their respective splits. While both New Jersey Viking ($2.90) and Ice Attraction's journeys ($3.10) to the wire in their contests, which are relegated solely to 2-year-old colts and fillies, were quite straightforward, Evelyn's ($5.20) provided a much more extensive amount of drama. Commencing his mile from post position eight, New Jersey Viking went right to the fore and was never threatened as he cruised around the Nichols oval. Owned by Knuttson Trotting and Little E LLC, the colt collected his second career triumph from five trips to the post. Two of his previous engagements were fourth-place finishes in the Peter Haughton Memorial and New Jersey Sire Stakes final. New Jersey Viking tripped the timer in 1:55.1, which was a new lifetime mark, and increased his bankroll to more than $69,268. Southwind Moody (Yannick Gingras) and Bill's Man (Corey Callahan) were second and third respectively. While not quite as dominant as her male counterpart, Ice Attraction demonstrated why she merits respect. The public's selection was content to sit in the pocket while Overdraft Volo (Andy Miller) cut the mile, until Svanstedt pulled his charge on the far turn. There was never a doubt who would be appearing in the winner's enclosure as the filly always had her rival measured. Owned by her trainer, Douglas Sipple, Mal and Janet Burroughs and Little E LLC, Ice Attraction strode across the finish line in 1:56, a new lifetime best, and scored her second career win to improve her resume to 6-2-1-1. Her earnings now stand at $35,300. Overdraft Volo and Caviart Wonder (Matt Kakaley) came home second and third, respectively. Although Evelyn's trip around the track was not without its impediments, the filly persevered after being shuffled back to fourth from second. Once pulled three-wide at the three-quarter pole, Evelyn passed her dueling colleagues Southwind Avanti (Marcus Johansson) and Treviso (Charlie Norris) to break her maiden in her sixth attempt. The filly, owned by Svanstedt, Little E LLC, Borge Nasstrom and JT45, equaled the track standard for her age, sex and gait with a final clocking of 1:55.2. Her record now stands at 6-1-1-1 and she has earned $47,310. Despite not winning prior to today, Evelyn had displayed talent with a sixth in the James Doherty Memorial and a second in the New Jersey Sire Stakes final. Southwind Avanti outlasted Treviso for second. Live racing returns to Tioga Downs on Monday (August 29) evening, with the first of nine races scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Eastern. by James Witherite, Tioga Downs  

Machinthesand in line to Norris Rogers used a first over journey to overpower fraction setter Motorino, to take the Wednesday harness racing feature at Red Shores Summerside. The seven-year-old son of Mach Three positioned himself in the three-hole from post six before making his move just past the half and stopping the clock in 1:55.3. It was Machinthesand's six win of the season for the Noonan Holdings Ltd., Russell and Karen Noonan. Hughie Murphy handles the training duties. Motorino laid down fractions of :28,:58 and 1:26.3 and held tough to be second, Painted Desert picked up the show prize. Veteran free-legged pacer Blu Meadow Willie added his name to an elusive category when he crossed the finish line first in Race 6. The 12-year-old son of Drop Off picked up his 60th lifetime victory in his 282nd lifetime start for co-owners Bob and Brenda MacInnis. Walter Cheverie engineered the winning trip getting up by a neck to win in 2:01.4. Cheverie picked up the driving double scoring in Race 7 with the Alex Sobey trainee Sendmeasign. Corey MacPherson also scored a driving double, winning first with Minor Wisdom for Kristina McCourt and closing out the card with his own trainee Useful Hanover. Racing returns to Red Shores Summerside on Sunday with a 1 p.m.start. The card will feature the 2-year-old colts and fillies in the Joe O'Brien and Lady Slipper Stakes.

While all the hype had been held by horses’ trained north of the border and off-shore, it was a Smythes Creek battle-hardened Mach Three who landed the killer blow in Saturday night’s Breeders Crown harness racing semi-finals at Bendigo. Shane and Lauren Tritton’s Tingira Beach was outstanding for the Menangle Park pair in semi-final one, but the script was thrown out in the second two-year-old colts and geldings semi-final when Christchurch trainer Mark Purdon’s gun, Pacing Major, was held off by Our Little General. “He’s a proper little racehorse now,” driver Chris Alford said, having notched up the second of three consecutive winning drives. “With a bit of luck somewhere we will be in the money (in the final).” That defining moment will come in race six next Saturday, when the Emma Stewart trained Our Little General’s large ownership contingent will be in attendance, including Anne Anderson of part-owner/breeder Lauriston Bloodstock. “It was fantastic,” Ms Anderson said. “We never expected him to hold off that quality field and he did it well.” VIDEO: ANNE ANDERSON DELIGHTED AFTER HER COLT SUCCEEDS From barrier seven Our Little General was sent to the top, where he was joined by Pacing Major at the bell, who was given a reprieve from his three-wide move when Bettor Be Gold gave Purdon’s runner cover. Come the final bend Our Little General stole the march on the field and by the time Purdon put Pacing Major into the open the task had become considerable. His Art Major colt loomed up, but Our Little General kicked on with 100m to go and that was all she wrote. “His first start was a heat of the Australian Pacing Gold and he’s danced every dance since then and we are just so proud of him,” Anderson said. “We’ll be back. I haven’t missed a Breeders Crown since the first one at Bendigo, so I’m a huge Breeders Crown fan and to have one in is fantastic.” Come the final Our Little General will again have to come from barrier seven and Pacing Major barrier nine after their semi-final draws were replicated. Their main rival, Tinigira Beach, will launch from barrier two for the Trittons, potentially enabling Pacing Major an avenue through and making Our Little General’s position a little trickier. With the Empire Stallions Vicbred Super Series crown already in his keeping, Tingira Beach couldn’t have been more impressive in his semi-final win and, with barrier draw front of mind, he’s been installed as a $1.50 favourite to win on TAB fixed odds. In the semi-final, the Somebeachsomewhere/Western Tingira colt held the front from barrier one and with 27.4 and 27.1 third and fourth quarters built a 12.3m win from Sunset Zeus, who had been on leader’s back. The dominant performance was that of a horse on his way up, Tritton said. “When we came here (for Vicbred) he was really green and still learning. He’s a different horse now, he’s a lot more switched on,” Tritton said. “He’s been really sharp in his work and I think he’s a really nice horse and he’s got his chance to win a good race.” VIDEO: SHANE TRITTON ONE VERY PROUD TRAINER That would mean more delight for his owners and breeders, the Dacar Newcastle group. “They come to Breeders Crown every year whether they have a runner or not,” Tritton said. “If I could get them a Breeders Crown win it would just mean the world to them. I think he’s good enough. I’d hate to think there’s better ones out there my bloke, he just feels great, I love him." Michael Howard (HRV Media/Communications Co-Ordinator)

Well-bred filly Rockin Annareelin has shown good promise in trials at Byford on the past two Sundays and is poised to make a strong impression at her harness racing debut when she starts from the No. 1 barrier in the http://www.perthinterdominion.com.au/ Pace for two-year-old fillies at Gloucester Park on Friday night. The Mach Three filly, trained by Gary Hall sen. and to be driven by Gary Hall jun., will attract particular attention because she is a full-sister to former brilliant juvenile pacer Gracias Para Nada. Rockin Annareelin finished second to New Zealand-bred gelding Messi in a 2150m trial on Sunday morning after winning by a length from King of Cougars in a trail the previous Sunday. “She’s a big filly who is green, but she gets out of the gate good,” said Hall jun. “She has come a long way in a short time and whatever she does this week she’ll improve on. If she leads, she will be a good winning chance, even though the experienced fillies in the race might have a bit of an edge on her.” Her main dangers appear to be the Justin Prentice-trained Lady Luca (to be driven by Chris Lewis) and last-start winners Sweet Gina and Karlkurla. Lady Luca is expected to be a warm favourite after she set the pace, sprinted over the final 400m in 27.3sec. and won by eight lengths from Whitbys Gamble at Gloucester Park on Monday of last week. She finished strongly to win a group 1 $100,000 Classic from Angel Bromac early in June. The ill-fated Gracias Para Nada had only 15 starts for eight wins and four placings for earnings of $114,741. In March 2012 he won the group 3 Caduceus Club Classic from superstar Im Victorious. After racing in the breeze outside Im Victorious in the WA Derby in April 2012 Gracias Para Nada was found to be suffering from a bone chip in a hock. When he was getting up after an operation to remove the bone chip Gracias Para Nada snapped his back leg and had to be put down. Ken Casellas

Pukekohe horseman Derek Balle looks set for a nice juvenile season in 2016-2017 if last Saturday’s annual Franklin harness racing yearling parade is anything to go by. Yearling colt Cullen's Caviar (Christian Cullen – Callie O’Malley) was judged the top yearling at the Franklin Trotting Club’s track on Station Road. Balle cleaned up the two major prizes with stablemate, Bit Of A Tiger (Bettor’s Delight – Tigerswish colt) also judged the ‘Best-of-the-Rest’. Balle received an NRM voucher while the Cullen’s Caviar’s gelding’s owners received a McMillan Feeds voucher. Bit Of A Tiger’s efforts earned Balle a Dunstan voucher sponsored by North Island Standardbred Breeders Association. Balle said there wasn’t much between the two yearlings. “I couldn’t separate them at this early stage. They are both very nice horses and the pick of my yearlings so far,” Balle said. Cullen’s Caviar is owned by his breeders (D M J Verryt, P J Cowsill, Mrs P Cowsill, Miss K Verryt, Miss T Verryt, Mrs D Farrell) – the Syndicate that owned the colt’s dam – Callie O’Malley, who won five races for Balle. They also have a Bettor’s Delight weanling out of Callie O’Malley with Balle. The mare was served by Auckland Reactor in September. “Cullen’s Caviar is very well put together and a bit more mature than most I’ve had. He feels like a 2-year-old but probably not a Young Guns horse. He will more than likely front after Christmas if he keeps developing the way he has,” said Balle. He said Cullen’s Caviar had paced a mile in 2:20, a half in 65, and a quarter in 31. “I broke him in, and like a lot of Christian Cullens he took a while to gait up, but once he got the hang of it he took to it well. He’s been in work for 10 weeks and I’ll give him a break now,” said Balle. He said Bit of A Tiger was a nice little horse, who had eight week’s work since he was passed in at the this year’s Karaka Yearling Sales. His reserve prize of $60,000 wasn’t reached. “He will have his second prep in about a month. He should also make a 2-year-old, but after Christmas as well,” Balle said. Meanwhile the Steve Cornwall (Pukekohe) trained Monkey Bones - Immortal Beloved gelding, Tobruk, was judged the best trotter at the parade. He was also named the ‘Best-Turned-Out-Trotter. The Robert Dunn trained Monkey Princess (Christian Cullen – Sheza Monkey) was judged the best pacing filly and the Ray Green trained Yasmine Bromac (Sir Lincoln – Jasmine Bromac) was the 'Best-Turned-Out'. The Brent Mangos trained Culpeka (Mach Three – Tuapeka Maddy) was named the best pacing colt and gelding and Balle's Cullen’s Caviar, the 'Best-Turned-Out'. Two Lincoln Farms service fees to Sir Lincoln were won by the Paulette Scree trained Petite's Majestie / and Joe Powell. Twenty five yearlings (eight trotters, nine pacing fillies, and eight pacing colts and geldings) took part in the Parade.

Champion four-year-old Beaudiene Boaz is one of the favourites for the interdominion championship later this year, but his harness racing driver Gary Hall jun. is apprehensive about his prospects in the $23,000 Ron Gallop Memorial Pace over 2536m at Gloucester Park on Friday night, citing stablemate Cyamach as a major danger. Beaudiene Boaz made a superb return to racing after a six-month absence when he crushed his rivals in a 1730m sprint last Friday week to improve his record to 22 wins from 30 starts for earnings of $997,784. Hall was full of praise for Beaudiene Boaz’s first-up performance, but he admitted that the horse faced a stern task this week from the outside barrier (No. 9) against stablemate Cyamach (Mach Three), who will be driven by Lauren Jones from the No. 5 barrier. “I don’t think that Beaudiene Boaz is a good thing, second-up and over 2536m,” he said. “Mind you, I was pretty impressed with the way he went first-up. However, the way Cyamach is going, he’s a big danger. His run last week was probably his career best.” At his return to racing last Friday week Beaudiene Boaz raced three wide early before surging to the front with 1000m to travel. He sprinted over the final 400m in 27.7sec. and won by just under a length from stablemate Run Oneover at a 1.53 rate over 1730m. Cyamach started out wide at barrier eight and was eighth at the bell before finishing powerfully to be third. Then last Friday night Cyamach started from the No. 6 barrier and raced in the breeze outside stablemate Run Oneover. He refused to give in and fought on grandly to be second, less than a length behind Run Oneover. “Cyamach is the best horse I’ve driven and he has a heart of gold,” said Jones. Beaudiene Boaz and Cyamach are prepared by Gary Hall sen., who also has My Hard Copy and Waylade engaged in Friday night’s race. He has sound prospects of landing the quartet. Ken Casellas

The Emma Stewart-trained Our Celebrity was back on her best behavior winning the Sky Racing Southern Cross semi-final for harness racing two-year-old fillies over 1800 metres at Globe Derby Park. Such has been the attrition race of eligible two-year-old fillies, the semi-final was actually a prelude with the same field able to compete in this week’s final. In her heat, on a stormy night, Our Celebrity was upset by both the weather and a false start then subsequently over-raced and faded to finish fourth behind the Ray Holberton-trained Ellen Louise. On Saturday night, Our Celebrity (Mach Three), the $1.60 favourite, came out quickly from gate three and was taken to the front by Mark Billinger and given a very easy first quarter of 32.6 then stepped it up coming home in 30.5, 29.4 and 28.4 making it impossible for her rivals to catch her. Miss Mappinga, backed from $5.50 into $3.30, sat behind the favourite but couldn’t match her and was beaten 7-1/2 metres with Acacia Avenue ($21.80) three metres away third. While the winner was never troubled, Acacia Avenue, trained and driven by David Jack, ran well and unleashed a powerful sprint coming off the back after being hampered and losing valuable ground going into the back straight. Ellen Louise finished fourth and also came home nicely but was well beaten finishing 29 metres behind the winner. Bruce Cameron, managing part-owner of Our Celebrity, said he was relieved the see the filly back in form. “I think it was a combination of things last time, and she was an inexperienced two-year-old filly away from home,” Cameron said. “Emma said she settled in really well when she went home so we made the decision to come back and tonight showed she is back on song.” On Saturday night’s race, Our Celebrity will be at a short quote to take off this week’s final. by Graham Fischer Race programme for Globe Derby Park, Saturday 30 July 2016

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, July 24, 2016 - Mr Mach Jimmy, who last year closed out the 2015 season winning the Quebec-Bred Championship Final for two-year-olds, finally got the goose egg off the win column in 2016, capturing a division of the Breeders Cup Series at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday. It took a lifetime best effort of 1:56.2 and the defeat of the red hot Sports Authority for Mr Mach Jimmy to notch his first win of the season after eight straight losses. Starting from the rail in the third race, one of two fourth and final preliminary rounds of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old pacers, Mr Mach Jimmy and driver Pascal Berube were on a mission to get to the lead and not give it up. With Chummy Park (Louis-Philippe Roy) also bent getting the early lead along with a three-wide race favorite, Sports Authority (Mario Charron), it was a three-horse early battle with Mr Mach Jimmy on top in :27.4 to the opening quarter mile and Charron having to take back on Sports Authority to fourth place. Meanwhile, Sagawi and driver Jocelyn Gendron, sitting in third place, took the plunge and came first-over at the half mile marker in :58.1 with Sports Authority grabbing the live second-over cover. But that cover did not last and Charron had to then take Sports Authority three-wide coming into the backstretch. Charron pulled the ear plugs on Sports Authority and he came alongside Mr Mach Jimmy at the three-quarters in 1:26.4, but Mr Mach Jimmy was not to be denied and held off Sports Authority to the wire, winning by one and three-quarter lengths. Magster (Gaetan Lamy) was third. Trained by Dany Fontaine for Gaetan Bono, Inc. of Montreal, Mr Mach Jimmy, sired by Mach Three, paid $7.00 to win. In the 11th race second colt division, Louis-Philippe Roy posted his third winner of the afternoon, driving HP Patriote to his fourth straight victory with a ten length romp in 1:57.1. Ey Cowboy and driver Maxim Gaudreault shot to the early lead and led by five lengths at the opening quarter mile in :28.4 and then backed it down by the half mile in 1:00. It was then Roy started HP Patriote first-over and by the backstretch had cleared to the lead and started to open up daylight on the field, winning by the length of the stretch. Dance With Joe (Daniel Dulude) was second with YS Artistic Fella (Stephane Brosseau) third. It was the eighth win in just nine starts this year for HP Patriote. The son of Vintage Master is trained by Gerard Demers and is co-owned by Les Ecuries GLD, Inc. with breeder Claude Hamel and paid $2.40 to win. In the filly division there were ten starters in the ninth race as Wild River Swan (Stephane Brosseau) started off the show, leaving from post five like a rocket to the front. But trainer/driver Yves Filion had different ideas with Clodam Bayama as they came after and took the lead away from Wild River Swan at the opening quarter mile in :28.2. Making atones for breaking as the wagering favorite last week, Clodam Bayama led the field to the half mile marker in :58 and then was challenged by HP Pandora and driver Louis-Philippe Roy in the backstretch. It looked as if Roy would clear by the three-quarters in 1:27 but Filion was the sly fox and kept Roy parked out. Then in the stretch Clodam Bayama had just enough left over to hold off both Art Deganee (Mario Charron) and Wild River Swan to win by a half-length in 1:57.4. Owned and bred by Filion's Bayama Farms and Jacques Damours, it was the second win in the series for Clodam Bayama, a daughter of Bettors Delight, who paid $4.30 to win. There were three divisions of the Future Stars Series opening round for two-year-old pacing fillies and colts. The fillies were spotlighted in the sixth race with a bulky field of ten starters on the 3R half mile oval. Kinnderuntouchable, a daughter of Allamerican Native, was able to lead from start to finish for driver Justin Filion, but not with a late scare by D G's Elsa and driver Jonathan Lachance. Sweeping three-wide on the field turn around horses, Lachance and D G's Elsa were on the move, but could not catch Filion and Kinnderuntouchable, who held on to win by a head in 2:03. Chaleurs Melodie (Carl Duguay) was third. Kinnderuntouchable was bred and is owned and trained by Denitza Petrova of Les Cedres, QC and paid $8.90 to win. The two colt divisions were non-wagering races with the fastest division going to Histoire Enchantee and driver Marion Charron. The son of Shanghai Phil wired the field but was collared by Majo Lou Beka (Lachance) on the final turn and those two went head and head down to the wire with Histoire Enchantee holding on by a neck in 2:01.3. Joe's Best (Gilles Gendron) was third. Trained by Maxime Velaye, Histoire Enchantee is owned and was bred by Guy Gorbeil of Montreal. The second division saw C L Sports Action and Lachance clear to the lead at the three-quarter pole and then hold off a late charge by Wildriverbumblebee (Roy) to win by one length in 2:02 with Chaleurs Magic (Stephane Gendron) third. Trained by Marie Lachance, the son of Sportswriter was bred and is owned by Ecuries C Leblanc, Inc. of Saint-Eustache, QC. TRACK NOTES: Three time Quebec-Series Champion and track record holder, Atomic Million AM, put on a clinic Saturday in the 10th race pace when he and driver Sylvain Lacaille were parked first-over the entire mile by pacesetter D G's Justlikethat and driver Jonathan Lachance. Despite the extra distance racing on the outside, Atomic Million AM held on in the stretch to fend off 23-1 Apple Pie Angle (Mario Charron) to win by a head in 1:56.3, paying $3.00 to win. Live racing resumes Tuesday evening, first post at 7:00 pm, with the fourth and final preliminary round of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old trotting colts and fillies. There will also be two divisions of the second round of the Future Stars Series for two-year-old trotters. They are non-wagering races scheduled to be held at 6:30 pm. From the Quebec Jockey Club

CAMPBELLVILLE, July 22 - Mayhem Seelster's first win of the season Friday was not only a big win for the three-year-old filly, but also a milestone victory for her harness racing conditioner.

The Richard Moreau trainee got away fifth with driver Jody Jamieson in the field of five. Bedroomconfessions made a second-quarter move to the lead from third and posted a half-mile time of :54.3. Around the final turn, Jamieson sent his charge towards the front and the even-money favourite held a half-length lead at the third marker in 1:23. In the stretch, Sandbetweenurtoes was never really challenged and looked comfortable winning in 1:50.4 by 1 ¾ lengths over Ms Mac N Cheese, who got a two-hole trip. Bedroomconfessions finished third. A five-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere, Sandbetweenurtoes now has four wins in 17 outings and $80,850 earned this season.

YONKERS, NY, Friday, July 22, 2016 -- Regil Elektra and harness racing driver Mark MacDonald found a late lane Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $45,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace. It looked bleak for our heroine as the race unfolded. From post position No. 2, she found herself trapped in three-hole as Sell a Bit N (Jordan Stratton) led through early intervals of 27-flat and :55.2. Skippin' By (George Brennan) was pocketed from the pole as the 9-10 choice when Secrets Out N (Jason Bartlett) went up and over the leader before the 1:23.2 three-quarters. That one opened a couple of lengths entering the lane, but just failed to close the sale. Bettor N Better (Tyler Buter), at 25-1, closed widest and--apparently--fastest. That is until Regil Elektra was able to get off the cones, then angle back inside and whip 'BnB' by a neck in a season's-best 1:52.1 Secrets Out N, Sell a Bit N and no-excuse Skippin' By rounded out the payees. For sixth choice Regil Elektra, a 6-year-old daughter of Mach Three owned by Fred Montelone Stable and trained by Keith Armer, it was her seventh win in 24 seasonal starts. Her lifetime earnings are now $627,000. The exacta paid $330, with the triple returning $1,340. Frank Drucker

Summerside, PE - Red Shores Summerside held a 10 dash harness racing card on Wednesday to celebrate Lobster Festival Week with PEI Seafood night. Machinthesand, owned by Noonan Holdings Ltd - Russell and Karen Noonan, won the evening's feature presented by Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. Customers and visitors to the historic oval were treated to samples of world-class seafood and harness racing. Driven by Norris Rogers, Machinthesand (Mach Three) busted the gate from post 5 to level fractions of 28.3, 58.4 and 1:28.2. He closed his final quarter in 27.1 to win by three lengths in 1:55.3. Athletic Putnam (Dale Spence) was second with Motorino (Terry Gallant) third. In other action, driver Walter Cheverie claimed the Summerside Lobster Festival Pace aboard Capitalism for owner Kristina McCourt, Summerside,PE. Cheverie returned in the very next race with veteran pacer Blue Meadow Willie to be presented with the Arsenault's Fish Mart cooler. The 12 year-old pacer, owned by Robert and Brenda MacInnis, Summerside, recorded his 59th lifetime victory. Ken Murphy also a driving double on the program. Wager was $15,051. For complete results go to www.redshores.ca By Lee Drake   Matchup Rekindled In Red Shores Feature CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - A Governor's Plate Night rivalry will be renewed Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park and Bazillion wants to settle the score. The Trevor Hicken trainee has drawn post 3 in the $2,200 feature event scheduled as race 11 on the Thursday evening program with the first of 12 dashes scheduled to kick off at 6:30 PM. Bazillion will have Brian MacPhee back in the bike for owner Kent Livingston of Cornwall after finishing third last Saturday during Governor's Plate night action at Red Shores Summerside. The six-year-old son of Village Jolt did all the front end road work in that start only to give way to Smiley Bayama down the stretch in a scorching 1:55 mile. With an inside post and Smiley Bayama leaving on his outside, the score could be settled this Thursday, with the post 6 leaving Smiley Bayama scheduled to have Adam Merner in the bike for trainer Ron Gass and owners Shelley and Alexis Gass, of Cornwall. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees Bazillion setting up shop on the front end again this week but think rail starter My Lucky Killean (Ken Murphy) can leave enough to make front-end-control a dear price to pay. MacIsaac says this will all play into the game plan for Smiley Bayama to win it all and turn his three race win streak into four. "He's firing on all cylinders right now with three straight wins," MacIsaac said. "The possibility of some early mayhem up front could set things up nicely for his rallying style and give him a great chance to keep the streak intact." Other entries include Whosurwinner (Mike McGuigan), Nogreatmischief (Walter Cheverie), Tempo Seelster (Todd Walsh), and Perfect Escape (Ron Matheson). The race 6 Open trot carries a $1,950 purse and see a career opportunity for a 18-year-old reinsman. With stakes action scheduled for Truro Raceway in Nova Scotia Thursday night, that leaves the race bike seat empty for the Marc Campbell trained Freddie, leaving from post 5 this week. Rookie driver Ryan Desroche will get the call to fill that void behind the 13-time winner for owners Three Wisemen Stable of Cornwall. Other top entries include Wedgewood (Gary Chappell) from post 2 and Frill Seeker (Kenny Arsenault) with post 3. By Nicholas Oakes for Red Shores

JULY 18, 2016 - From the moment Soiree Seelster arrived in Tony O'Sullivan's barn she was so laid-back the Puslinch resident occasionally wondered if something was wrong with the harness racing two-year-old pacing lass. "I was actually talking to Sylvain (Filion) about it tonight, she's, you know, she's just really, really relaxed, she always has been. She just takes everything in stride; she doesn't shy away from anything," O'Sullivan explained. "She worries me sometimes, because she's so quiet at home you think there's something wrong with her, but there's not. "When she gets to the races she sharpens up a bit, but even then, she's just very, very professional," he added. "Her attitude is really, really good." On Monday evening Soiree Seelster did her best to calm all of O'Sullivan's worries with a victory in her $70,000 Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS) Gold Series division at Mohawk Racetrack. In rein to Milton resident Filion, Soiree Seelster eased away from the centre of the starting gate and was sitting fifth when Royal Point paced by the quarter pole in :27.3. Heading for the :57.1 half Soiree Seelster stepped into the outer lane behind fan favourite Sir Native and Thorne Seelster, and the trio of fillies made steady gains on the leader through the 1:25.4 three-quarters. Turning for home Soiree Seelster was less than two lengths behind the leader and a sharp finishing kick propelled the filly to a two length victory in 1:54.2. Thorne Seelster finished second and Royal Point was five more lengths back in third. "Sylvain's taught her how to race in both the qualifiers, plus her two races," noted O'Sullivan. "Obviously we got the win tonight, but I love the way he's bringing her along." Monday's outing was Soiree Seelster's second in the Gold Series. The daughter of Big Jim and Smilesplace finished a hard-closing third in her July 5 OSS debut after logging a second in qualifying action on June 25 and a third on June 10, all three over the Mohawk Racetrack oval. O'Sullivan shares ownership of Soiree Seelster with Domenic Chiaravalle of Hamilton and Lorne Keller of Exeter, ON. The group purchased the filly out of the 2015 Forest City Yearling Sale for $53,000 and have recouped $47,600 through two starts. "She was a really good looking strong filly, as you can see on the track, and we kind of liked the pedigree and the cross and decided to just take a swing on it," recalled O'Sullivan. "She never really had a bad day - I mean I never get very high on them until they qualify - but we liked her all winter." Soiree Seelster will make her third lifetime start in the August 12 Gold Series event at Mohawk. Soiree Seelster The other two Gold Series divisions on Mohawk's Monday evening program were captured by Future Headlines and Blameitonthenight, both piloted by Milton resident Randy Waples. Sent off as the favourite in the first division, Future Headlines took command heading by the three-quarters and powered home a one and one-half length winner in 1:55. Windy Sport and Bid Writer rounded out the top three, making it a sweep for daughters of Sportswriter. Waples engineered the win for trainer Colin Johnson of Repentigny, QC and his partners Thomas Kyron of Toronto and David Heffering of Port Perry, ON. Monday's outing was Future Headlines' first, coming after a 1:54.4 win in a July 8 qualifier at Mohawk. Future Headlines Blameitonthenight captured the third Gold division, controlling the tempo for much of the mile and then waging a fierce duel with Yaris Bayama in the stretch, hanging on for a neck victory in 1:53.2. Out Of Sight finished third, three lengths behind the duelling leaders. Trainer Tony Alagna of Manalapan, NJ shares ownership of Blameitonthenight with Crawford Partners LLC of Syracuse, NY and Donna Ozment, also of Manalapan. The Mach Three daughter is now two-for-two after capturing an overnight event at Mohawk on July 12. Blameitonthenight Many of the fillies in Monday's Gold Series event will make their next start in the Battle of the Belles eliminations at Grand River Raceway on July 25, with the final slated for Aug. 1. The freshman pacing fillies will return to Gold Series action, and Mohawk Racetrack, on Aug. 12. On Tuesday, July 19, the Campbellville oval will welcome the two-year-old trotting fillies for their second Gold Series start. The fillies will face off in Races 2, 3, and 8, with racing getting under way at 7:30 pm. Ontario Racing

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, July 17, 2016 - The only reason that harness racing driver Louis-Philippe Roy did not win all four of the Breeders Cup Series preliminary rounds Sunday at the Hippodrome 3R is because he did not have a drive in the fourth division. The Hippodrome 3R's leading driver this season was on fire as he captured the first three divisions of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old pacing colts and fillies. Roy started out in the third race for fillies, leading from start to finish by a half-length with Wild River Swan ($4.50) in 1:59.1 over the pocket-sitting HP Mercedes (Gaetan Lamy) with Art De Gagnee (Mario Charron) third. It was the second win in four starts for Wild River Swan. The daughter of Sportswriter is trained and owned by Dr. John Bradbury of Cookshire-Eaton, QC. Then in the very next race, Roy won again, this time with HP Patriote ($2.30) in the first colt division of the Breeders Cup Series. It was not an easy triumph until the end of the mile as HP Patriote was stung early trying for the lead against YS Artistic Fella and driver Stephane Brosseau. Determined not to allow HP Patriote to get the early lead, Brosseau parked the race favorite on the outside through the opening quarter mile in :28.4, the half mile in :57.3 and to the three-quarters in 1:26. It was on the final turn that Roy was able to clear to the lead with HP Patriote and once on front they started to pull away from the field, winning with ease by six open lengths in 1:55.1. YS Artistic Fella held for second with D G's Ninja (Jonathan Lachance) third. It was the third straight win, all in the Breeders Cup Series, for HP Patriote. The son of Vintage Master is trained by Gerald Demers and is co-owned by Les Ecuries GLD, Inc. with breeder Claude Hamel of Ayer'S Cliff, QC. Roy then capped the afternoon in the sixth race second filly division, winning with HP Pandora ($9.60), an owner/breeder double for Claude Hamel. Following Skyfall Sena (Pascal Berube) from the start, Roy and HP Pandora took full advantage as the 1-2 favorite Clodam Bayama (Yves Filion) could not handle the first turn and went off-stride, allowing Roy to get the perfect trip behind Skyfall Sena. And what a trip it was as Skyfall Sena was fired up and cut the opening quarter mile in :27.4 and then to the half mile in :58.1 and three-quarters in 1:27.3. It was then that Roy made his move with HP Pandora and the daughter of Mach Three shot to the lead and never looked back, winning by six and one-quarter lengths in 1:56.3. Drift Panic (Gaetan Lamy) was second with Skyfall Sena third. It was the second win this year for HP Pandora, who is trained by Daniel Martin. For all three of Roy's stakes win, each horse set a new lifetime mark as the 3R oval was in superb shape. In the lone stakes race that Roy did not have a drive in, the eighth race, it was the Mario Charron show as he left hard with Sports Authority ($5.50) and never looked back, crushing the field in 1:55.3. After the opening quarter mile in :27.2, Charron let Sports Authority have his head and the colt pulled away from the field after the half in :57.2, opening up by five lengths in the backstretch, through the three-quarters in 1:26.1 and then cruising home to win by six and one-half lengths over Mr Mach Jimmy (Pascal Berube) and Pudong Phil (Sulvain LaCaille). It was the second straight win in the series for Sports Authority. The son of Sportswriter, trained by Maxime Velaye, has now won five of his eight starts this year for the Determination Stable of Montreal, QC. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the afternoon came before the start of the sixth race, when on the exact 25th anniversary of when he won the Trois-Rivieres Pace in 1991, the top pacer Maxou, returned to the Hippodrome 3R and led the field for the post parade. Now age 27, Maxou still had some prance to his steps as he was driven in a jog cart by his former driver, Mario Charron. Maxou was then honored in the winner's circle with a special presentation. On hand was his owner/breeder, Roger St Germain and trainer, Jean-Paul Charron, Mario's father. Maxou, a son of Flight Of Fire from the top broodmare, Lilith Lobell, finished his career after his 3-year-old season with a record of 17-2-1 in 25 starts and career earnings of $271,357. As a two-year-old he amassed an impressive record of 11 wins in just 13 starts. Along with capturing the Trois-Rivieres Pace at age 2, he also won the Quebec Breeders Cup at age 3 in a personal best 1:54.4 on Blue Bonnets 5/8th mile track in Montreal, capping that season with 6 wins in 12 starts. Race fans were also shown Maxou's Trois-Rivieres Pace victory from 1991 on all the monitors before he led the post parade. "This will most likely be his last appearance for the public." Roger St. Germain said, "How many times do you get to see a great racehorse at age 27! He will continue to have a very happy retirement. He spent most of his life after racing on our farm as a riding horse. This was such a great presentation today at 3R." TRACK NOTES: After the stakes races were done for the day, Louis-Philippe Roy was not. He came back to win two more races to end the day with five victories. He captured the tenth race pace with 16-1 Power N Politics in 1:57, paying $34.10 to win and won the eleventh race with Yaahoo Kwik ($6.00) in 1:57.1. Live racing resumes Tuesday evening at the Hippodrome 3R with not just the third round of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old trotting colts and fillies, but also the opening round of the Cutting The Future Series for two-year-old trotters with two divisions, one for colts and one for fillies. Post time Tuesday is 7:00 pm. For a free race program and live video feed of the races, visit www.quebecjockeyclub.com. From the Quebec Jockey Club

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, July 9, 2016 - Yonkers Raceway's pair of Saturday night harness racing $45,000 co-featured Open Handicaps were annexed by Undercover Strike (Jason Bartlett, $6.80) and a repeating Mach it So (Bartlett again, $15.40). Undercover Strike, caught three-wide early from assigned post position No. 6 in the weekly marquee trot, nevertheless went the distance (:28, :57.4, 1:26.2, 1:55.3). He held off the cavalry by a half-length, with E R Ellie (Jordan Stratton) a second-up second. Third went to a skimming Red Hot Herbie (Dan Dube), with 9-5 choice Lady's Dude (George Brennan) and Summers Windsong (Mark MacDonald) settling for the remainder. The quintet of cashers were separated by just a length-and-a-half at the wire. For second choice Undercover Strike, an 8-year-old Striking Sahbra gelding owned by Gerard Stuchbury and trained by Tom Milici, it was his eighth win in a dozen seasonal starts. The exacta paid $43.40, with the triple returning $232.50. The week's featured pace saw Mach it So overcome an eight-hole with an adroit, ground-saving trip. Slight 2-1 choice Scott Rocks (Eric Abbatiello) and pole-sitting Dream Out Loud N (Tyler Buter) were in play early (:27, :56) before a jammed-in Somewhere in LA (Brennan) moved from third. That one offered nothing first-over going toward the 1:23.4 three-quarters, helping no one in the outer tier. Meanwhile, Mach it So was improved along the cones down the backside. Scott Rocks owned a length lead into the lane, then saw Dream Out Loud N eschew the passing lane to angle out. That cleared the field for Mach it So, who zipped up the cones to win by a length in 1:52. Long Live Rock (Dube) was a wide second in good effort, photoing Doctor Butch (Brent Holland). Dream Out Loud N could no better than fourth off the two-hole trip, with Scott Rocks fading to fifth. For fourth choice Mach it So, a 6-year-old Mach Three gelding owned by Bamond Racing and trained by Jeffrey Bamond Jr., he's now 6-for-13 this season. The exacta paid $132, the triple returned $1,634 and the superfecta paid $7,875. Frank Drucker
