Heather Vansickle's Weslynn Quest set a new harness racing track standard of 1:53.3 in her $50,000 Ohio Sires Stakes division on Friday night, August 16 at Scioto Downs. Reined by Tyler Smith for trainer Chris Beaver, the 16-1 longshot bested seven rivals in the second of two OSS events for 3-year-old trotting fillies. The daughter of Manofmanymissions had finished third, sixth and fifth in her previous OSS contests. Weslynn Quest, who was unraced as a freshman, picked up her fifth career victory in 12 starts and upped her lifetimei bankroll to $61,250 for her connections. "She's had some issues in the past and has been a little tough to manage at times," noted trainer Chris Beaver. "We switched her to an open bridle tonight and that seemed to help." Aunt Percilla, who had held off her rival until the final strides after taking command of the race just past the half, put in a game performance to be second by a neck at 4-1 for driver Danny Noble, while 7-2 Aunt Rose was third, another length back, for Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. Weslynn Quest is the second foal out of the Windsong's Legacy mare Weslynn Legacy 4, 1:56.4s ($105,006) and is a half-sister to Weslynn Dancer (by Deweycheatumnhowe 5, Q1:53.2 ($398,898). In the first OSS division Only Take Cash, the 1-5 public's choice, was an easy winner for Aaron Merriman in 1:54.2, using wire-to-wire tactics to notch her fourth win of the season and 12th lifetime victory. The daughter of Cash Hall, who is trained by Bob McIntosh for Robert McINtosh Stables, Dave Boyle and Mardon Stables of Ontario, was last season's 2-year-old champion and now has $117,250 in seasonal earnings and $389,390 in her career coffers. "She's awesome," said an impressed Merriman after the win. "She's simply push-button and there's no end to her. Last year we raced her from behind a lot and I really didn't want to give her that much air tonight and would rather have had an easier trip but that was the way things worked out. She's solid and seemed to handle it well." Only Take Cash held off second-place finisher, 5-1 Refined (Brett Miller) by 1¼ lengths, with 45-1 longshot Buckeye Starlet notching show honors for Chris Page. The bay filly by Cash Hall is the fifth foal out of the Garland Lobell mare Armbro Affair 4, 1:53.4s ($430,997) and is a half-sister to Tough Affair (by Muscle Mass) 4, 1:59.2f ($69,968); A Fair Conchnito (by In Conchnito) 4, 1:58.2f ($33,866) and Fit Bit (by Muscle Mass) 2, 2:00.3f ($22,173). With the four legs of this series now complete, the top eight point and money earners of the 3-year-old trotting fillies are: Only Take Cash (141 points, $68,500); Pure Chance (109 points, $52,500); Aunt Rose (103 points, $49,500); Refined (78 points, $37,500); Weslynn Quest (71 points, $33,500); Back Splash (65 points, $31,000); Bella's Rose Power (54 points, $25,000); and Stone In Love (50 points, $25,000).

The main action during the two-day meet at St-Aimé-des-Lacs, Quebec on Saturday/Sunday came on the latter card, with the most spectacular event being the obliteration of the track trotting record, as 21st century-born Bermudian Kiwon Waldron guided Missionoftheheart, a five-year-old daughter of Manofmanymissions, to a 1:59.4 victory in the Invitational handicap trot.   The mare, who won by 18 lengths, knocked two seconds off the old SAdL standard of 2:01.4, set by Revonah Hanover in 2013.   Waldron, who was discovered racing ponies in his native land by vacationing members of Team Allard, won twice on the Sunday card, and now has a driving record of 10-7-2-0, which translates to a UDR of .811.   The $10,000Cl five-mile Casino Charlevoix event was won by Appleby Hanover and driver Dany Mainguy, completing a big day for trainer Michel Allard, who is also the trainer of Missionoftheheart.   Dany Mainguy and the six-year-old son of Well Said led the entire five-mile journey, drawing clear of Bet I Can Fly to win by 15 lengths in 11:31. It was a repeat victory for Appleby Hanover in the 5 Milles after being elevated to victory over a disqualified Montana Ben in last year's race.   by Jerry Connors, for the Quebec Fair Regional Circuit

East Rutherford, NJ -- Mission Accepted and driver Yannick Gingras converted on a perfect pocket trip to capture the $60,000 Vincennes Trot on Saturday afternoon (Aug. 3) at The Meadowlands.   The 4-year-old by Manofmanymissions scored in a 1:50.2 clocking, his fastest in 16 career victories.   Mission Accepted left strongly from the start and cleared the lead before the :26.4 opening panel. Gingras allowed Lindy The Great to secure the top on the backstretch, and that one carved out middle fractions of :54 and 1:22.1 in front of a stalled outer tier.   Mission Accepted rallied from the pocket into the stretch and drew off from former Hambletonian winner Pinkman, who had to settle for second. World champion Homicide Hunter put in a solid late rally, just missing the place spot and settling for third.   Ron Burke trains Mission Accepted for owners Knox Services Inc. and David Willis. Sent off as a 5-1 offering, Mission Accepted returned $12.60.   Favorite Rich And Miserable made a break early in the race and was no factor.   Of note, the first- and third-place finishers -- both trained by Ron Burke -- raced without shoes in the Vincennes.   by Jay Bergman

Pompano Beach, FL - On Thursday night the North American harness racing record for trotters going five-eighths of a mile was both set and tied in the Dash For The Cash Series at Eldorado Pompano Park. The North American record that was set was done so by Sam Stathis's Celebrity Eventsy ($7.00) in the third race trot, the third of three $10,000 Dash For The Cash divisions on the program. With trainer/driver Sam Stathis in the sulky, Celebrity Eventsy was able to grab the early lead away from Katch Kanna (Aaron Byron) by the opening quarter mile in :27.2. Celebrity Eventsy and Stathis then held the field at bay as they led at the half mile in :55.4 and then won by one and one-half lengths in 1:10 over Thundercrest (Dustin Ingraham) with Railee Workable (Bryce Fenn) third. A five-year-old mare by Manofmanymissions, the 1:10 clocking was the fastest ever by a mare going five-eighths of a mile. It was her second win this season. She is a career winner of $581,000 and is owned by Celebrity Farms of New York, NY. Earlier on the card, in the first race, second trot division of the Dash For The Cash, Bioness, with trainer/driver Hunter Oakes, also wired the field, going in a speedy 1:09. That time tied Bioness with Sooo Handsome, who set the mark in February of this year, also at Pompano Park. Bioness defeated Sooo Handsome (Rick Plano) with Fleetwood Hall (James Hysell) third. It was the second straight win and seventh of the season for Bioness, a seven-year-old gelding by Sam Bourbon, who is owned by the Northfork Racing Stable of Wilkes-Barre, PA and paid $7.40 to win. There was a pacing division of the Dash For The Cash Series in the second race and that took the photo finish camera to decide the winner. Polak A and Hunter Oakes went right to the lead and sizzled to the opening quarter mile in :26.2, then cut the mile to the half in :54 and had the lead starting down the stretch. Meanwhile, Feelin Lika Winner and driver David Ingraham got away in fifth place, then moved up to third place at the top of the stretch and keeping to the inside, gained ground with every stride and nipped Polak A at the wire by a nose. Bowedfortyova (Gregory Merton) was third. The time of the mile was 1:08 as Feelin Lika Winner posted his eighth win of the year. The eight-year-old gelded son of Feelin Friskie is trained and co-owned by Casandra Uppal with Rebecca Uppal of Middletown, IN. He paid $11.20 to win. By Steve Wolf  

YONKERS, NY, Sunday, December 2, 2018 - Yonkers Raceway's Sunday (Dec. 2nd) harness racing matinee saw a down-the-road Mostinterestingman (Austin Siegelman, $11) winning the featured-and 'sloppy'--$44,000 Open Handicap Trot The Sunday feature went at the flat mile, one race after the seven added-distance 'French' trots. The intervals were :27.3, :57.3, 1:26.3, 1:55.4 as Mostinterestingman-from post position No. 4--never had an anxious moment. Jack Vernon (Dan Dube) rushed up around a breaking 8-5 favorite Celebrity Ruth (Trond Smedshammer) to grab the early pocket around another misbehaver in Crazy About Pat (Jordan Stratton). New Heaven (Joe Bongiorno) did not get close moving first-up from fourth as Mostinterestingman had 2¼ lengths in and out of the final turn. He finished it off by three lengths, with Jack Vernon coming back to get second. New Heaven, Royal Bachelor (Eric Abbatiello) and Andy Ray (Jason Bartlett) picked off the minors. For third choice Mostinterestingman, a 5-year-old Manofmanymissions gelding co-owned by (trainer) Ricky Bucci and Richard Solano, it was his eighth win in 38 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $74.50, the triple returned $860 and the superfecta paid $5,358. Aqueduct was 'fogged out' Sunday, and with it this week's scheduled revival of the 'New York, New York Double'. The next Sunday matinee is Dec. 16th (final program of season, post time TBA). YONKERS’ MONDAY PICK 5 FEATURES $1,500 CARRYOVER, 10G GUARANTEE                         A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Monday evening’s (Dec. 3rd ) Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $1,540.12 and a $10,000 guaranteed pool. The guarantee is in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Program. The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 6 through 10 Monday night.

WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 10, 2018 -- PL Jerico stalked Wind Of The North from the pocket, then kicked by him in the lane to capture Wednesday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows in a sharp 1:53.3. Hammered down to 1-2. Wind Of The North was seeking his fourth straight win; when he got a 29.4 second-quarter breather, it appeared he would extend that streak. But when Dave Palone tipped PL Jerico off the cones at the top of the lane, he inched past the favorite and downed him by a neck. Chef Lee completed the ticket. Ron Burke trains PL Jerico, a 5-year-old Manofmanymissions-Corinas Mission gelding who now boasts $228,480 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. It was one of four wins for Palone on the 13-race card. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino has increased — to $10,000 — the total-pool guarantee for its Thursday, Oct. 11 Pick 4 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative. While $7,500 Pick 4 guarantees are offered each card, The Meadows sweetened the pot when Wednesday’s Pick 4 was uncovered, resulting in a carryover of $3,306.51. In addition, Thursday’s card includes a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 5 as well as the Super Hi-5; each is a regular feature of each program at The Meadows. Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (races 4-7), Pick 5 (races 9-13) and Super Hi-5 (race 13) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets. First post for the special Thursday card is 1:05 PM. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

YONKERS, NY, Sunday, August 5, 2018--Favored Mostinterestingman (Jordan Stratton, $4.40) was the third and last leader Sunday afternoon (Aug. 5th), winning Yonkers Raceway's featured $54,800 Open Handicap Trot. The weekly trotting feature went as the early-PM opener, the first of a 10-race, all-trot card. Nine of 'em were at the overflow field, mile-and-a-quarter 'French' theme. Away alertly from post position No. 6, Mostinterestingman has to wait his turn. Inside rivals Fashion Creditor (Andy Miller) left, as did lass NF Happenstance (Jack Parker Jr.) It was after a 28-second opening quarter-mile that Mostinterestingman made the lead from the mare. He then found a :56.2 half and 1:25.3 three-quarters with the other ma'am, longshot Weslynn Dancer (Jason Bartlett) fighting the first-over fight. The 44-1 prompter hung in there while Mostinterestinman found a 1:54.2 milepost. He owned a length-and-a-quarter lead into the lane, with NF Happenstance angling out. That one couldn't reach, as Mostinterestingman prevailed by a length-and-three-quarters, getting the added distance in 2:24.1 Fashion Creditor, who left the cones, offered a solid close to get third, with Cash Me out (Jim Maroh Jr.) and Such an Angel (Brian Sears) coming away with the minors.

"I did get lucky with this one," co-owner/trainer Rene Allard said. "He seemed to acclimate well, better than many of Australian and New Zealand horses that have come to me. He doesn't wear much and he gets over these tracks." The second Club event saw odds-on Ursis Des Caillons (Joe Bongiorno, $3.40) draw away from Undici (Steve Smith) in 2:26.2. "Good manners and quick-footed," Bongiorno said. "He opened up easily and I never took the ear plugs out." Sunday's latest installment of the 'New York, New York Double' featured a winning combination of 5-Into Mystic (Saratoga's 1st race, [winner for parimutuel purposes]) and 6-Ursis Des Caillons (Yonkers' 3rd race), returning $16.20 for every correct $1 ticket. Total pool was $4,415. The next Sunday matinee is Aug. 12th (post time TBA). by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

Five different Ohio-registered stallions were represented by the quintet of Ohio Sires Stakes winners on Monday, July 2, as 42 freshmen trotting colts and geldings lined up behind the Northfield Park starting gate.   Each division in Leg 1 of this OSS series carried a purse of $40,000 on a balmy summer evening at the Cleveland half-miler where rumbling clouds threatened but did not deliver.   In the first OSS division Homer Hall, a gelded son by Broadway Hall, took a solid, front-end journey with Ryan Stahl at the lines to nail down his third consecutive victory. A surprising 15-1 shot, Homer Hall was clocked in a career best 1:59.3, besting 15-1 rival Here Comes Moony (Tyler Smith) and 13-1 Yes (Anthony MacDonald) who got up for third.   Bred by Midland Acres, Homer Hall is conditioned and co-owned by Steve Carter, along with Jay Mossbarger and C P Gallagher. Previously, this youngster had scored triumphs at the Circleville and Ottawa county fairs, and his bankroll now stands at $23,559.   Homer Hall is the 11th foal out of the Armbro Iliad mare Cynthia Iliad 3, Q1:58.f ($219,824), and is a half-sibling to: Allthatnabagofchip (by Chip Chip Hooray) 6, 1:53.3 ($364,286); Hoorah Hoorah (by Chip Chip Hooray) 5, 1:56.3f ($74,605); and Jailbird Jesse (by Jailhouse Jesse) 3, 1:58.1f ($55,946), etc.   Driver Ryan Stahl was back in the winner's circle in the second OSS division, this time with Bosley, an altered son by Manofmanymissions, who was clocked in a snappy, front-stepping 1:59.2. Trained by Scott Cox for the Parent Racing Stable and G Peters, Bosley was sent off at 11-1, besting 9-5 favorite Cravin For Cash (Greg Grismore) by a length, with 2-1 Pattis Main Man (Kyle Ater) third.   Bred by Darwin and Ann E. Shaver, Bosley's financials now stand at $20,325. He is the first foal out of the unraced Chocolatier mare Nettie.   To no one's surprise, Oh So Pine captured the third OSS division impressively in 2:01.3 as the public's 1-2 favorite. Reined by Anthony MacDonald for Jason McGinnis, the brown son by Uncle Peter got a come-from-behind steer to notch his second career victory for Thestable Oh So Pine Group.   Sweet Dynamite got up the perfect trip behind the winner, finishing three-quarters of a length behind Oh So Pine, with Kenny Kidd in the sulky at odds of 30-1, with 7-2 Gallivant (Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.) third.   Bred by Gbw Breeding Farms, Oh So Pine is out of Pine Potion, an unraced daughter of world champion Pine Chip, and is a half-brother to: Bullet (by Windsong's Legacy) 5, 1:53.1s ($303,500) and At My Request (by Dejarmbro) 4, 1:56.1h ($68,316), among others.   TC's Best captured the fourth OSS division as the 3-5 choice with Aaron Merriman at the helm, timed in confident 1:59. This Triumphant Caviar colt looked every bit the determined combatant for trainer and co-owner Chris Beaver, and partners J. Gallagher, Moger-Delia Racing and Steven Zeehandelar, as he held off the 6-1 challenging Dylan The Great (Chris Page) by 1¾ lengths.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - The highest win payoff of the 2017 harness racing season at the Hippodrome 3R was recorded Sunday as The Rocket Man and trainer/driver Michel Audet blasted to the lead in the backstretch and then held off Bel Gazou to win by a head at odds of 55-1, paying $112.00 to win. The sixth race trot saw Federal Strike and driver Sylvain Fontaine go out to the early lead with The Rocket Man and Audet sitting on the outside in fifth place going to the opening quarter mile. Then by the half mile marker, The Rocket Man had a slight lead over Federal Strike and then took command in the backstretch as Federal Strike began to fade. As the came to the finish, Federal Strike caught a second wind and nearly collared The Rocket Man. Bel Gazou (Louis-Philippe Roy) closed with a burst of speed but it was too late to catch The Rocket Man. Federal Strike was third. Time for the one-mile race on off track was 2:04.4. The payoff was the first $100 plus winner to come in at H3R this season. The Rocket Man is a four-year-old gelded son of Manofmanymissions and is owned by Rexanne Viau of Bertheirville. It was his fourth win this year. With one of the most amazing racing efforts of the year at H3R, National Debt and driver Stephane Gendron swept three and four-wide in the backstretch, and came on to win the eighth race Invitational Pace going away. Getting away in last place at the start of the race, National Debut could see them all as Atomic Million AM (Mario Charron) led the field with Glass Shadow (Stephane Brosseau) sitting in the place to the opening quarter mile in :28. As they came to the half mile in :58.2, National Debt was still in last place, but horses began to come out to challenge, but that was not fast enough for National Debt and Gendron as they tipped three-wide heading to the backstretch. Then before the three-quarter mile marker in 1:28.1, Gendron was forced four-wide with National Debut and the pacer responded by circling the field on the final turn and collaring Atomic Million despite being three-wide. Coming down the stretch, National Debt was bearing out but still had plenty of pace left to win by one and one-quarter lengths in 1:58.1. Glass Shadow was second with Atomic Million AM third. It was the tenth victory of the season for National Debt, a six-year-old stallion trained by Yves Tessier for owner Francois Morin of Beauceville. He paid $5.70 to win. Track Notes: With next Sunday closing day for the 2017 live harness racing meet at H3R, it looks like both the driving and training titles are not wrapped up. Driver Stephane Brosseau holds a diminishing 51-46 lead over Stephane Gendron for the dash winning title. With two victories from his stable Sunday, Frances Richard looks to hold up as the leading trainer at H3R. He leads 26-19 over Yves Tessier, who also had a winner. Drivers Pascal Berube, Stephane Gendron and Louis-Philippe Roy all had two winners on the program Sunday. Post time next Sunday for the final live race card of the season is 12:30 pm.
