The Patti Harmon-trained pacer drew post position two for his third try in the local Open and driver Jay Randall didn't waste any time showing speed with a horse who has thrived as a closer in his local starts. Bettor Notbitter A was the public's 3-5 betting favorite on Saturday just two weeks removed from a second-place finish in the $18,000 Open. Randall moved the seven year old Australian-invader out to the front in the feature and once they got there, it was over. Bettor Notbitter A cruised to the front in 27.3 before clicking off a half 56.1.

Redbank Blaze A (Billy Dobson) finished second in his Saratoga debut while Funknwaffles (Brett Crawford) earned the show spot. Bettor Notbitter A stopped the timer in 1:52.2, a time that serves as a new lifetime mark for the pacer who now has a pair of wins and a second-place finish in his five starts since coming over from Australia.

Batavia, NY --- After winning his way up through the non-winner harness racing ranks, Howmac Dancer scored a major upset in his first top class $12,500 Open Handicap pace victory at Batavia Downs on Saturday night (11-9). There was a mad rush off the gate with Major Authority (Wade Tomaszewski) parking out Mr. Euroman (Billy Davis Jr.) and Tullow N (John Cummings Jr.) two and three deep to the quarter in :27.3. With everyone finally taking a seat, Major Authority kept rolling to the half in :55.3. At that point Howmac Dancer (Denny Bucceri) pulled from mid-pack, moved smartly up the backstretch and took command by the three-quarters in 1:25. Rounding the far turn, Howmac Dancer had a gapped advantage but still had to withstand a late rush from Black Is Back (Dave McNeight III) and Race Me Rocky (Shawn McDonough) which he did to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:55.1. It was the fifth win in seven Batavia starts and seventh win of the season for Howmac Dancer ($42.00) who is owned by Burke Racing and Weaver Bruscemi and trained by Jim Clouser Jr. The $11,000 Open II Handicap pace went to Cultural Paradise (Renaldo Morales III) who led every step of the way en route to his third win in his last four starts and fourth win of the season, timed in 1:56.3.

Getting away fourth, Wheels A Turning (Denny Bucceri) watched in wait while the only other mare in the race, CR Blazin Beauty (John Cummings Jr.), grabbed the lead and set the tone. They went to the half in :58 flat before Bucceri pulled Wheels A Turning first-over and started to march for the front. CR Blazing Beauty maintained command of her lead but Wheels A Turning was trotting alongside within a length at the three-quarters, around the turn and into the stretch. As they moved down the lane the two trotted stride for stride to the wire until Wheels A Turning gained a slight advantage and won by a neck in 1:57.3. It was the ninth win of the year for Wheels A Turning ($6.10) who has now earned $79,310 in purses in 2019.

Batavia, NY --- A pair of distaff Open paces topped the harness racing card on Wednesday night (Nov. 6) at Batavia Downs and fittingly, both winners came from barns of female trainers. In the $12,500 Open I Handicap for fillies and mares, Protect Blue Chip (Billy Davis Jr.) got away fifth while Blue Bell Bonnie (Dave McNeight III) and HP Sissy (Drew Monti) battled for front supremacy in a speedy :27.2. Davis pulled first-over with Protect Blue Chip and brought Gia's Surreal (John Cummings Jr.) in the flow. Positions grew tight as the race reached three-quarters in 1:25.3 with the top four horses pacing in a bunch and it didn't get any easier down the lane. With a mad rush to the wire, from the pylons out was Blue Bell Bonnie, HP Sissy, Protect Blue Chip and Gia's Surreal all within a head of each other until Protect Blue Chip got the slightest advantage to win by a nose in a blanket finish on a cold night in 1:54.4. It was the seventh win of the year and a new seasonal mark for Protect Blue Chip ($18.00) who is owned by Vogel and Wags Nags Stable, Jack Rice and Adelphi Bloodstock. Maria Rice trains the winner. Then in the $11,000 Open II Handicap for fillies and mares, Lady London (Ray Fisher Jr.) went a mile that could have gotten her the top prize in the main event. After leaving sharply from post four in :27.1, Lady London led at every station by a gapped advantage that grew as the race progressed. After hitting three-quarters in 1:24.1, Fisher let Lady London pace home of her own volition and she stretched out to a 5-3/4 length win at the wire in 1:54.1. It was also the seventh win of the year for Lady London ($5.30) who is owned by VHF Racing and trained by Sabrina Shaw, who had a training double on the card. John Cummings Jr. and Billy Davis Jr. were the hot drivers on Wednesday, each scoring a hat trick of victories. Kevin Cummings joined Shaw in the trainer ranks with two wins on Wednesday as well.

A pair of $10,700 events for New York sired trotters served as harness racing co-features on the Wednesday card at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Meg Reynolds’ Kapow (Conway Hall) was the fastest among the winners of the featured raced as pilot Phil Fluet situated the six year old into the pocket in the early going and parlayed that trip to victory. Kapow came into the race with only one win on the season but starting from an improved post on Wednesday was situated well for the stretch drive and wound up riding the coattails of the race’s favorite Song Chapter (Billy Dobson) every step of the way. Kapow popped the pocket in the stretch and reeled in the public’s 6-5 top choice before drawing away late to win in 2:00. Paying $5.90 to win, Kapow bested Song Chapter, who continued her trend of finishing second or third on a nearly weekly basis, and longshot Southwind Rich (Chris Long), who earned the show spot. The other co-feature was won by Leap Year Lucky who went wire-to-wire with Jimmy Devaux driving for trainer Lisa Zabielski. The race served as class relief for the three year old gelding who was overmatched in the two legs of the recently concluded Jim Derue Memorial Trotting Series. Dismissed at odds of 5-1 on Wednesday, Leap Year Lucky held off the late charge from rival Match My Miracle (Brian Cross) to hang on in 2:00.3 to record the third win in his 2019 campaign. Match My Miracle came up second-best while the race’ s favorite Royal Casanova (Frank Coppola Jr) finished third. Live racing continues on Thursday afternoon with a first post time set for 12 Noon.

Veteran pacer Dinner Guest (No Pan Intended) did something on Wednesday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel that is very rare in harness racing. Normally, parlaying a pocket trip to victory after drawing the rail in a low-level condition race wouldn't be anything of note but Dinner Guest is fourteen years old. An award winner in 2018 as top Claiming Pacer of the Year at the Spa, the Frank Multari-trained veteran earned his first victory of the season on Wednesday as he came on to prevail in 1:55.4 in a conditional pace that went for a purse of $4,815. Dinner Guest enjoyed a nine-win campaign last year but mustered up only a couple of second-place finishes as well as five thirds in a winless '19 season before shaking loose late on Wednesday to score in 1:55.4. Veteran driver Dan Cappello Jr. sat behind the fourteen year old who went over the $730,000 mark in lifetime earnings with the win. It is rare enough for any horse to still be racing at the age of fourteen, the maximum age for a standardbred to compete in a pari-mutuel event, but to still have enough in the tank to register a victory is certainly uncommon and impressive. The win was career number 76 for the classy veteran who is wrapping up a sensational dozen years of racing. Live racing continues on Thursday afternoon with first post time set for 12 Noon. There is a $5,000 guaranteed Pick Five pool on Thursday as the Saratoga Harness Horseperson's Association has teamed up with Saratoga Casino Hotel to offer the guarantee. The Pick Five, which begins in race one, is a fifty cent minimum wager.   Mike Sardella

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, October 5, 2019-San Domino A (Jason Bartlett, $17.40) escaped unscathed Saturday night (Oct. 5th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $42,000 Open Pace. It was a strangely-contested contest, with 3-5 choice Mac's Jackpot (Brent Holland)-from post position No. 2-in no hurry early. He was set to get away fourth until one leaver, Benhope Rulz N (Shaun Valle) broke, wiping out another leaver, I'marocnrollegend N (George Brennan). Mac's Jackpot then defaulted into a pocket behind pole longshot Highland Tartan (Dan Dube) before a :26.1 opening quarter mile. Continuingly content to sit, Mac's Jackpot saw Highland Tartan find a :55.1 intermission. San Domino A, away third from post No. 3, then moved to engage Highland Tartan. As the former was overhauling the latter before a 1:22.4 three-quarters, Mac's Jackpot seemed to want to extricate himself from the cones. With The Real One (Pat Lachance) to his outside, Mac's Jackpot couldn't go anywhere, eventually dropping back noticeably. Meanwhile, San Domino A opened to two lengths off the final turn, disposing of The Real One by a length in 1:50.4. Highland Tartan held third, with Theartofconfusion A (Austin Siegelman) and Havefaithinme N (Eric Goodell) settling for the minors.

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, September 28, 2019--American History (Joe Bongiorno, $2.30) matched Yonkers Raceway's all-age track record Saturday night (Sept. 28th), dusting an age-restricted harness racing handicap field in 1:49.3. Assigned outside his five rivals in the $35,000, fifth-race pace, American History floated into a four-hole as Turbo Hill (Eric Goodell) laid down a flat 27-second opening quarter mile and :55.1 intermission. American History then went after the leader, the tandem throwing it down in a :26.4 third quarter (1:22). He then put away Turbo Hill shortly thereafter, taking a length lead into the lane. After some driver encouragement, American History widened, whipping 36-1 outsider Ideal Flip (Brent Holland) by three lengths. Turbo Hill and Tiger Baron (George Brennan) rounded out the gimmick finishers. Fresh off his win in Harrington's Quillen Memorial--in an identical 1:49.3--American History won his fourth race in 15 seasonal starts. The 4-year-old son of American Ideal is co-owned by (breeder) Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz & American History Racing and trained by Tony Alagna. "He's scary fast," Bongiorno said. "He probably went a :26.1 third quarter and I never had to pull the plugs. There's no telling just how much he can go in his next start at Lexington." The exacta paid $41, the triple returned $249 and the superfecta paid $523. Saturday's effort equaled Theartofconfusion A's (Austin Siegelman) track record from four weeks ago. It also set a new record for American History's weight class, displacing himself (1:50) from five weeks ago. Saturday night's pair of $42,000 Open Handicaps were won by... --Pace, None Bettor A (Jason Bartlett, $3) in 1:50.4, --Trot, Rich and Miserable (Tyler Buter, $7.30) in 1:53.4. Rich and Miserable set a track record for 4-year-old geldings, eclipsing Lord Cromwell (1:54.1), taken last October. FRANK DRUCKER Publicity Director
