Trois-Rivieres, QC - Harness racing driver Mario Charron stole the spotlight at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday, not only scoring a driving triple over the sloppy track, but his third win came in the feature pace with Atomic Million AM. Charron started off the day capturing the third race with the long shot Winco Jimmy ($25.10), then the fifth race with Onyx V A ($5.90) and capped the day in the eighth race.

Parked three-wide, R Rkadabra finally cleared to the lead over Dance Hall George by the opening quarter mile in :29. Then R Rkadabra and Roy led through the half mile in 1:00.2. Then by the backstretch, R Rkadabra started to pull away from the field as Lucky Promesses (Jerome Lombart) came first-over and then Artemis Duharas with Raymond Gingras came charging first-over at the three-quarters in 1:32.4 and was able to collar R Rkadabra around the final turn.

Trois-Rivieres, QC - He is only one of two horses that has won the Quebec-Bred Series at age 2, 3 and 4 and is now hopefully back to his winning ways at age 6 as Atomic Million AM heads the feature race at the Hippodrome 3R on Sunday. Sired by Million Dollar Cam, trained by Alain Martin, who also bred and owns the gelding, Atomic Million AM starts from post seven in the eighth race Silver Invitational Pace. He will race as part of an entry for the Martin Stable with stablemate Beach Runner A M going from post two. It was at age three that Atomic Million AM was at his best, winning 11 times, taking a record of 1:50.3 at Mohawk Raceway and earning over $100,000. Then at age four he equaled his lifetime mark of 1:50.3, again at Mohawk and with five wins won over $60,000. But the hard miles have taken its toll on the good pacer as this season, Atomic Million AM has but two wins and earnings of only $10,000, but last week there was a return to his old ways upon returning to H3R with a strong seven and one-quarter length romp in 1:59.3. Parked out first-over until the backstretch, Atomic Million AM then started to pull away from the field and opened up in the stretch like the Quebec champion he is. Mario Charron will be in the sulky aboard Atomic Million AM and their chief rival in the race will be stablemate Beach Runner A M. Now age ten, Beach Runner A M will be driven by Pierre Luc Roy and has raced mainly at Rideau Carleton this season. He has rarely missed a week of racing with 29 starts but only two wins, the fastest a 1:54.1 triumph months ago. Another top older contender in the race, also age 10, is C$1,044,203 winner Code Word. This son of Western Terror has not started since the end of May for trainer Charles Gaudreault, but looks to be in prime shape, having won two qualifiers at H3R, the fastest on October 1 in 1:58.3. He starts from post three for driver Simon Delisle. Other contenders include Mister Big Top (post four), Brandons Bandit (post eight), who has won his last two starts, and the top mare, Rainbow Palace (post six).

Airborne Ameretto is taking the fast-class pacing ranks by storm for Great Western harness racing trainer-driver Kerryn Manning. The five-year-old Million Dollar Cam-Eyes Of Courage mare completed a five-straight picket-fence winning form line for Manning tonight at Tabcorp Park Melton with an explosive win in the Alabar Breeders Crown Graduate Pacers Free for All. Following last weekend’s brilliant Mares Graduate FFA Breeders Crown win at Bendigo, Ameretto lifted another notch tonight and the big question now is where to next? “There’s Perth … where there’s a nice mares’ race there,” Manning said post-race, adding, “We’ll have to sit down and have a think”. Ameretto tonight held off a fast-finishing Tee Cee Bee Macray by 1.9m in a mile rate of 1:53.3, with San Carlo running in third place 2.3m behind the winner. “It gets harder from here,” Manning said. “But if she keeps going like that she’ll be hard to beat in whatever she lines up in.” The last mare to win the Breeders Crown Graduate Free for All was Make Mine Cullen in 2012 (1:58.0).  And for the sake of including this stat, the last mare to win the Inter Dominion was Jodie’s Babe in 1989 (Stella Frost won Inter in 1971, Richmond Lass in 1969 and Robin Dundee in 1965). “It was a really quality field tonight. To (win) in such good fashion just shows how good a horse she is,” Manning said. “She’s a very easy horse to handle at home. It’s a pleasure to have her.” Manning was sent the mare by trainer Ashlee Grives in New South Wales. The Orange Agent, the star Kiwi mare who dominated this year’s Mares’ Triple Crown at Melton, went 1:53.7 in winning the Alabar Angelique Club Cup over 2240m at Melton in May. Messini ran on well for fourth tonight and My Kiwi Mate finished fifth. Cody Winnell (HRV Media/Communications Manager)

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- To put it mildly, it was just a solid effort from start to finish for Itsonlyrocknroll A ($5.70) in the harness racing  featured $9,000 Open II Pace at Buffalo Raceway on Saturday night (June 3).   Lulling the field to sleep with a soft opening panel of just 29.0, Itsonlyrocknroll A only got better the rest of the way and posted a convincing two length decision over China Dream in a seasonal best of 1:53.3 over the fast track.   Larry Stalbaum and Itsonlyrocknroll A got an uncontested lead right off the gate and managed to open up a solid two length margin through the first split of 29.0 while Littlebitaclass was next in line.   The tempo picked up the rest of the way as Itsonlyrocknroll A hit the half in 57.0, starting to leave the remainder of the field in his dust. The final half mile went in 56.3 with Itsonlyrocknroll A using a 28.1 last panel to secure the win. China Dream (Drew Monti) picked up the second place check with Western Alumni (Todd Cummings) finishing in third.   Owned by Stalbaum and trained by Kimberly Asher, Itsonlyrocknroll A (Million Dollar Cam-Boldandbeautiful) is a 6-year-old gelding that has seven wins in just 14 tries in 2017.

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- A break at the start looked like it might have doomed the chances of Itsonlyrocknroll A ($3.80) in Buffalo Raceway's $10,000 Open Pace on Saturday night (Feb. 18) but in the end, he had the remaining six harness racing participants waving the white flag in surrender.   Itsonlyrocknroll A (Larry Stalbaum) continued to stamp himself as the top pacer on the Buffalo Raceway grounds by breezing to an easy 3-3/4 length victory over Bubbie Boy in 1:55.1 over the fast track. It was his fourth victory in five appearances in 2017.   Able to regroup and get back on gait going around the first turn, Itsonlyrocknroll A was in high gear to the opening quarter mile and eventually took command going around the clubhouse turn the final time.   With Stalbaum popping the plugs before the three-quarter pole, Itsonlyrocknroll A impressively increased his lead to six lengths at the top of the stretch and jogged home from there.   The only battle to the wire was for the minor spoils as Bubbie Boy (Shawn Gray) rallied for second place with Knocking Around (David McNeight II) rolling into third.   Itsonlyrocknroll A (Million Dollar Cam-Boldandbeautiful) is a 6-year-gelding owned by Stalbaum and trained by Kimberly Asher. The win pushed his earnings to $22,700 this season and $190,920 lifetime.   It was a great night for the Stalbaum/Asher team as Larry captured six events in the sulky while Kim conditioned four winners.   Shawn Gray posted a triple in the bike while JD Perrin notched a training four-bagger.   Racing will resume on Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. with an 11-race program scheduled.   For more information including upcoming promotions, the latest news, race replays and results, go to   by Brian J.

The nine-year-old daughter of Million Dollar Cam converted off a second-over trip from driver Trevor Henry to win this week's top class for pacing mares in 1:51.3.
