Freehold, NJ --- He's won at the Meadowlands, Pocono Downs, and Harrah's Philadelphia since coming stateside. Now, Matticulous will take his harness racing talents to Freehold Raceway on Saturday (January 11), as he headlines a field of eight Preferred handicap pacers.   Born and raised in the United Kingdom, Matticulous began his career there, before coming to the United States for the Ron Burke barn in October. Since then, he's been on a tear, with five wins and a second from six starts. Perhaps his most impressive performance came at the Meadowlands on November 23, when he paced a winning mile in 1:50.1. He went the last quarter that night in a blazing 25.2 seconds.   Matticiulous will be making his first start since December 9 at Yonkers Raceway, when he finished second as the 3/5 favorite, behind 2018 Metro Pace winner Stag Party. On January 4, Matticulous turned in a strong qualifying mile at the Meadowlands, going the distance in 1:54.3. He was assigned the outside post position for Saturday's tilt, and figures to get strong wagering support.   The best of the challengers appear to be The Onlyest One and Benson Boys. The former won the Preferred at Freehold three starts back, and finished third at the level, behind stablemate Lucan Hanover, last week. Jack Baggitt will drive that one for the first time, for trainer Nick Surick. He was assigned post position six. Benson Boys is undefeated since coming to the United States in October, winning four straight races between Pocono and Yonkers. Joe Bongiorno is named to drive for his sister Jenn, leaving from post seven.   The rest of the field consists of, from the inside out, Polak, Bullet Bob, Ozone Blue Chip, Clint Westwood, and Gotta Go BB. It's scheduled as the eighth race, with a post time of 3:10 PM EST.   The first of eleven races on the Saturday program at Freehold will be at 12:30 PM EST.   From Freehold Raceway      

WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 6, 2020 -- A new harness racing season began Monday at The Meadows, but it looked like the same old Perlucky, as he rolled to his fifth straight victory in the $18,000 Open 1 Handicap Trot. Dave Palone sent Perlucky to the point from post 6, and the 5-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding had nary an anxious moment, defeating the pocket-sitting Cherry Peep by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:55.1. Rising MVP rallied for show. Ron Burke trains Perlucky, who now boasts $359,909 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.   Mike Wilder and Palone each collected three wins on the 13-race card. During the program, The Meadows and the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) honored Aaron Merriman for achieving his third consecutive 1,000-win season, a harness racing first. Merriman notched win 1,000 at Northfield Park on the final card of 2019. Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday when the card features a trio of rich wagering opportunities: a $5,000 total-pool guarantee in the Pick 4 (races 3-6); a $1,370.51 carryover in the Pick 5 (races 2-6); a $1,129.69 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5.

Something had to give . . . and it wasn't Windsong Leo. The 1-2 favorite pulled the pocket for driver Dave Palone into the final turn, blew by Southwind Amazon and scored in 1:50.4.

Bettor Than Spring finished third while Southwind Amazon, tiring on the sloppy surface, faded to fourth. Windsong Leo collected his 15th victory this year for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura and extended his career bankroll to $586,460. In Friday's companion feature, the $20,000 Open Handicap Trot, Perlucky made it four straight wins, moving three wide past the half to edge the front-ending Icanflylakeanangel by a neck in 1:54.4. The 4-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding lifted his lifetime earnings to $350,909 and provided a sweep of the day's features for Palone, Burke and the Burke Racing-Weaver Bruscemi-Collura ownership team. Mike Wilder piloted four winners on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Jason Robinson, while Palone enjoyed a triple. Live racing at The Meadows continues Saturday, the 2019 "Day of Champions," when The track and the Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) reveal and crown their Pacer of the Year, Trotter of the Year and Horse of the Year.

This Week: The 2019 Grand Circuit season has come to a close. The 2020 schedule will be released in January. Last time: After working to catch cover up the far side, Shake That House ($20.20) vaulted three-wide off the final turn to collar Captain Crunch in the $335,000 Hap Hansen Progress Pace final for 3-year-old colts and geldings on Wednesday night (Nov. 27) at Dover Downs. Shake That House tracked down Captain Crunch to prevail by a widening neck in 1:50.1. Fotowon photo. The sophomore son of American Ideal landed in sixth early while 3-5 favorite Captain Crunch (Yannick Gingras) worked to clear American Mercury (Tyler Buter) through a :26 first quarter. As Captain Crunch, who won the elimination heat, sped along through a :53.4 half, Tim Tetrick angled Shake That House third-over - but the pair lost their cover upon reaching the backstretch. While the first-over Dancin Lou (Andy McCarthy) sustained gradual headway up the far side, the second-over Semi Tough (David Miller) angled back to the pegs upon straightening, forcing Shake That House to close a three-length gap in the outer tier into a 1:21 third split. Despite the extra work he endured, Shake That House had ample energy to swing three-wide around a stalled Dancin Lou well above the eighth pole and tracked down Captain Crunch to prevail by a widening neck in 1:50.1. U S Captain (Dexter Dunn), who was locked in from mid-division, rallied up the open stretch to take third. Shake That House, who also won the Max Hempt Memorial at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono in June, eclipsed the $500,000 mark in seasonal earnings with the 10th victory of his career. Chris Oakes trains Shake That House for Crawford Farms Racing, Alan Johnston and the Northfork Racing Stable. Complete recaps of all the races are available at the Grand Circuit website.
