YONKERS, NY, Friday, January 23, 2015-Favored Set Me Up (George Brennan, $5.40) finished what she started Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $35,000 featured Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace. In play early from post position No. 3, Set Me Up-beaten choice a week ago-marched around Sir Jillian Z Tam (Pat Lachance), then waltzed through Westchester (:28.2, :58.4, 1:27.1). In the interim, last week's victress, Spirit of Desire (Jason Bartlett), was trying it first-up, moving from fourth. Set Me Up had a length-and-a-half entering the lane, then fended off "Jillian" in a two-speed number. The final margin was a half-length in 1:55. Spirit of Desire held third, with Palm Patrol (Mark MacDonald) and Robin Cruiser (Jordan Stratton) completing the cashers. Pole-assigned Nefertiti Bluechip (Matt Kakaley) settled for valuable experience, which figures to serve her well later in life. For Set Me Up, a 6-year-old daughter of Shark Gesture co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke and Weaver Bruscemi, it was her second win in three seasonal starts The exacta paid $21.40, with the triple returning $55.50.

WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 23, 2015 -- Stuck outside for most of the mile but following live cover, Camille zipped through the slop in the stretch and collected an impressive harness racing victory in Friday's $24,800 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. The race figured to be a challenge for Camille, as she had been off a month and was assigned post 9. But Dave Palone positioned her behind R Marie Hanover, who was parked out but advancing. Camille made the decisive, three-wide move at the three-quarters, gobbling up the leaders and scoring in 1:53.2. Novascotia Hanover rallied for second, 4-3/4 lengths back, while R Marie Hanover persevered for show. Evan Pattak  

WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 22, 2015 -- The beaten harness racing favorite in five of his six most recent starts, Visible Gold was determined not to let another opportunity slip away, digging in late to capture Thursday's $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. Visible Gold was leading throughout the mile but was challenged in mid-stretch by the pocket-sitting Dew N Doughnuts. The 7-year-old Bettor's Delight-Gabrielle gelding held off his challenger by a nose to score for Dave Palone in 1:53.4 over a sloppy surface. Solar Surprise rallied for show. Ron Burke trains Visible Gold, who extended his career bankroll to $383,944, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and RTC Stables. It was one of four wins on the 14-race card for Palone.

Diamond Creek Farm has announced that the initial book for 2014 harness racing "Pacer of the Year" and runner-up for Horse of the Year, Sweet Lou, is now full and closed. “We expected a great response, and that’s certainly what we got,” said Diamond Creek’s owner Adam Bowden. “It seems like this horse’s charisma equals his credentials, and his popularity on the racetrack pretty much just transferred over straight to the breeding shed. “With the quality of the mares he’ll be bred to, his first crop of yearlings should rival those of any horse out there,” he added. Sweet Lou retired to stud at Diamond Creek Farm of Pennsylvania after his 5-year-old season with earnings of more than $3.4-million and a World Record mark of 1:47 taken on a five-eighths mile track. He is a son of Yankee Cruiser from Sweet Future, also the dam of $2.7-million winner and World Champion Bettor Sweet. “I think that sometimes people primarily see Sweet Lou as a champion free for all pacer, which is true of course, but the fact that he was also a World Champion, Breeders Crown winner, and divisional Pacer of the Year as a 2-year-old is sometimes overlooked,” Bowden said. “We think he has everything it takes to be a tremendous sire.” The multiple World Record-holder--and first horse to ever pace six consecutive sub-1:48 winning miles--was campaigned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, Lawrence Karr and Phillip Collura and trained by Ron Burke. Breeders and fans may follow the continuing career of the horse many called “The Great White Blaze” on Twitter @greatwhiteblaze. Sweet Lou - 2014 Ben Franklin - Mohegan Sun Pocono Diamond Creek Farm

For the first time this harness racing meet, there was a back to back winner in the Free For All Handicap Pace at The Meadowlands and his name is Doctor Butch. Doctor Butch showed good speed early in the mile for Tim Tetrick, who elected to sit the pocket behind the hard-leaving Beach Memories. The pacesetter established an opening quarter of 26.3 and while not feeling any pressure on the lead, settled down and reached the half-mile in 54.4. From there Beach Memories picked up the pace, with Casimir Jitterbug stalling first over. Doctor Butch was able to stick with the leader through a third quarter of 27 seconds flat. Wake Up Peter kicked off dull cover and came with his rally in the stretch as Doctor Butch took dead aim from the pocket. The field closed in on Beach Memories nearing the wire, with Doctor Butch grabbing the lead and holding off the rally of Wake Up Peter to score in a sensational 1:48.4. A son of Art Major Doctor Butch is trained by Linda Toscano for Kenneth Jacobs. Major Uptrend may have been making his debut for the Ron Burke stable, but he picked up right where he left off, in the winner's circle, this time in the first round of The Escort pacing series. Sent off as the 2/5 betting choice, Major Uptrend settled just off the speed of Khan Blue Chip through an opening quarter in 27.2. Moving past the three-eighths pole, Major Uptrend made an aggressive move to the lead for new pilot Yannick Gingras and settled in through a half-mile of 56 seconds. Not feeling any pressure, Major uptrend coasted through a 28.2 third panel before sprinting to the wire in just 26.1 to score a compelling victory over Khan Blue Chip in 1:50.3, which established a new lifetime mark for the four year old gelded son of Somebeachsomewhere. I Am Will shook free late to be third. Major Uptrend is owned by Howard Taylor. The second division of The Escort was a more competitive event on paper as it looked like a three-pronged battle between JK Patriot, Brick Bazooka and Company and it played out that way throughout the mile on the racetrack. JK Patriot showed speed and after briefly relinquishing the lead to Autobiographical, he would move back to the front past an opening quarter of 28 seconds. Big Bazooka was the next to move for John Campbell as he was launched past the three-eighths pole and cleared the lead past the half-mile in 56.3. Company Man was not far behind as he revved his engine and was the next to brush to the front and would clear the lead into the far turn, where he proceeded to widen the margin past three quarters in 1:24.3. Company Man put some daylight between himself and Big Bazooka in the stretch while JK Patriot searched for racing room. Company Man would take them all the way to the wire, winning in 1:51.4 for Tim Tetrick. JK Patriot shook free too late and was a fast-closing second with Brick Bazooka third. Company Man is trained and owned by Daniel Mitchell. The third division of The Escort featured a 3/5 favorite in What I Believe who worked on to earn the victory in 1:51.2.  What I Believe moved to the lead early, before relinquishing the lead briefly on the backstretch and then re-taking the advantage through fractions of 27.4 and 55.4.  He would lead the field through three-quarters of 1:24 before holding off the late charge of Blacktree to score in 1:51.2.  What I Believe gave Yannick Gingras his fifth victory of the night, his fourth teamed up with trainer Ron Burke. What I Believe is owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Honorable mention tonight goes to Hurrikane Kingcole, widely known as one of the fastest horses this sport has ever seen.  He got back to his winning ways in a $10,000 C-1 event with a powerful first over performance, completing the mile in 1:49.4. by Darin Zoccali, for the Meadowlands

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, January 10, 2014- Odds-on choice Take it Back Terry (George Brennan, $3.20) skimmed for success Saturday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $35,000 Open Handicap Pace. Unhurried from post position No. 3, the people's preference saw 34-1 shot O'Sundland (Larry Stalbaum) beat everyone to the punch from the far outside, making the lead before a :27.3 opening quarter-mile. While doing so, he looped Mickey Hanover (Dan Dube), forcing that one to prompt toward a :56.3 intermission and 1:25.2 three-quarters. All the while, Take it Back Terry was stuck in a three-hole, behind a pocketed Flem N Em N (Jason Bartlett). O'Sundland owned a length-and-a-half lead entering the lane, but was about done. Swarmed from all side, it was a deep-in-the-passing lane Take it Back Terry saving the chalkies. He whipped a second-up McErlean (Eric Goodell) by a neck in 1:53.4. BJ's Guy (Matt Kakaley) was third, with Mickey Hanover--out every step--and Flem N Em N rounding out the payees. For "Terry," a now-6-year-old Western Hanover gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura, it was his first win in a couple of seasonal starts. The exacta paid $23, with the triple returning $109. The Raceway's live season continues night Sunday (post time 11:55 AM), a French-centric, trot-filled card with seven oversized fields at the mile-and-one-quarter distance. After that, it's Monday (7:10 PM), Tuesday (1 PM), then Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 PM). by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Friday, January 9, 2015-Yonkers Raceway's 2015 season began Friday night with a $35,000 featured Filly and Mare Open Pace. Second-choice Set Me Up (George Brennan, $5.80), from post position No. 4, whipped her four foes, going the distance (:28.3, :58.2, 1:26.4, 1:54.4). Palm Patrol (Mark MacDonald) moved from third down the backside, closing the margin before missing a half-length. Cooking the Books (Eric Carlson), a no-factor, 7-10 fave Robin Cruiser (Jordan Stratton) and Grounded (Jason Bartlett) completed the cashers/finishers.

Whata Donato surrendered the early lead to Express Justice and, even in mid-stretch, appeared destined for second best.

The year 2014, just like every season in the history of harness racing, was jammed packed with special events, major stakes races and other points of interest that made the year super exciting and quite a bit controversial. We have highlighted the “Year In Review” as best possible with the top events and races that took place each month. We apology for any news items that were missed. 2014 got off to a terrible start when on January 10 the starting gate at Freehold Raceway went into a spin after the start of a race and came down upon the field and took out most everyone in the race. While all horses miraculously escaped without major injuries, five drivers, Catello Manzi, Debra Rucker, Vincent Ginsburg, Chris Scicluna and Jim Pantaleano were taken to the hospital to be checked out. The worst injured were Manzi and Rucker. The new Miami Valley Racetrack in Lebanon, Ohio tried opening up for live racing on Friday, February 9 but the lights failed to work and thus had to wait until the next night to officially get underway. Sydney Weaver was the at the epicenter of the most potent demonstration of social media as a positive force in harness racing in early February  when her beloved mare Sydney Seelster was taken from her in a claiming race at Flamboro Downs. Trainer Guy Gagnon was pilloried on Facebook and Twitter for making the claim and soon cried uncle, agreeing to allow Sydney to claim her mare back. On March 28, two harness racing horses died on impact at Flamboro Downs after they collided head on in a tragic accident. The incident resulted in all tracks in Ontario having to install a siren alarm system by Jan. 1, 2015. April saw horseman Jack Darling take command when he heard that there was no funding to promote some of the sport’s biggest races on television and within a short time and through his own blog, helped raise over $100,000 and thus the Meadowlands Pace and the Little Brown Jug were able to be televised. In June a major tiff between harness driver Brian Sears and Meadowlands, Tioga, Vernon Downs owner Jeff Gural ended up with Sears being barred from competing in qualifying and overnight race events. After less than a week, Gural rescinded the ban. On June 28, harness racing fans saw the fastest trotting mile ever in history as the amazing European star, Sebastian K, win at Pocono Downs in 1:49, shattering the former record that was set on a larger track. With trainer/driver Ake Svanstedt, Sebastian K took harness racing in North America by storm with his amazing speed and racing barefoot with no horse shoes. On July 13, He’s Watching tied the world record on a mile track in winning the Meadowlands Pace in an amazing clocking of 1:46.4. With Father Patrick making a costly break at the start of the race, stable mate Trixton and trainer/driver Jimmy Takter grabbed all the glory in winning the early August Hambletonian Trot. At the Little Brown Jug it was Limelight Beach in straight heats and the same for Color’s A Virgin in the Jugette. Wild Honey became the fastest two-year-old trotter ever on a half mile track with a 1:55.2 triumph. The Hippodrome 3R in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, revived the great Prix D’Ete stakes race with a purse of $200,000 and saw Sunfire Blue Chip and driver Yannick Gingras lower the all-age track record by two seconds with a 1:50.3. October started off with a bang as Mission Brief became the fastest two-year-old trotter in history with her 1:50.3 clocking at the Red Mile for driver Yannick Gingras. On October 4, Dayton Raceway in Dayton, Ohio opened its doors for harness racing with a full house as thousands came out to check the new racetrack. Nuncio and driver John Campbell captured a one-heat $435,000 Kentucky Futurity in 1:51.3, beating stable mate Father Patrick and then went to Yonkers Raceway to take the Yonkers Trot, winning two of the three Triple Crown of Trotting races. Natural Herbie, at odds of 9-1, posted his fourth straight win with a world record performance at Yonkers Raceway Saturday, Oct. 25 in beating many of the best trotters in the world in the $250,000 International Preview. On Halloween, October 31, harness racing’s great second trainer, Quebec’s Ami Choquette, who worked for Delvin Miller for over 50 years, turned 100 years old. Maven brought $750,000 at the Harrisburg sale and became the highest priced racehorse trotting mare sold at public auction in November. She was purchased by Herb Liverman. Yonkers Raceway and the SOANY broke the simulcasting barrier overseas and began simulcasting five races to France/Europe early Sunday mornings with great success and millions wagered on the USA product. The simulcasts will continue in 2015. Harness driver Dave Palone did the unthinkable years ago and caught Germany’s Heinz Wewering to become the sports winningest driver ever as he recorded his 16,754th career victory. This took place at his home track, The Meadows, on Friday, November 14. Palone has now increased his lead, has no plans of an early retirement and his lead may never be bettered. The Breeders Crown helped seal up a number of Dan Patch divisional awards in late November but perhaps the most impressive was that of world champion Commander Crowe coming over to the USA and stealing the limelight with his stakes record 1:51 triumph. He surpassed the $5 million mark in career earnings at age 11 and gave North American fans a thrill to see this world class performer in action. In late November, early December, just one week after Harnesslink exposed to the harness racing social media fans about the abuse that trainer Monica Thors was inflicting on horses in her stable, all seven horses and one goat was taken away by the NJ SPCA. More than 14,000 people “liked” the Stop Monica Thors” page on Facebook and were relentless in going after state officials to do something. They are also raised money and services to care for the horses once they were taken away. In December Hall of Fame driver David Miller paid a $750 fine for dropping his foot and allowed McWicked to hit it numerous times around the final turn of the $301,000 Progress Pace final at Dover Downs. When asked about the penalty, Miller said he would do it again in trying to win the race. His comments set up major controversy in the harness racing social media venues and prompted Jeff Gural to issue a “no tolerance” rule at the Meadowlands, Tioga and Vernon Downs against any driver who drops their foot other than to pop ear plugs. When Appomattox crossed the wire first in the Free For All Handicap Trot on December 12 at the Meadowlands, harness horse trainer Ron Burke's season earnings moved to $28,118,465, surpassing the mark set by Thoroughbred trainer Todd Pletcher seven years ago. By the end of the year, JK She’salady was sensational with her undefeated season and capped it becoming the first two-year-old pacing filly to ever be name Harness Horse of the Year. But her triumph was unique as top older pacer Sweet Lou was voted the Pacer of the Year by one vote over JK She’salady, but the tables were turned in the final voting for Harness Horse of the Year as the filly beat out Sweet Lou by five votes! Both occurrences have never happened in the history of voting. The year sorta ended on a sour note as Balmoral Racing Club, Inc. and Maywood Park Trotting Association, Inc., two of the oldest horse racing venues in the country and the only harness racing tracks in Illinois, announced Christmas Eve that each has voluntarily commenced Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization cases in Chicago. Let’s hope for a bigger and better racing season in 2015. Happy New Year to everyone! By Steve Wolf, for Harnesslink.com

WASHINGTON, PA, Dec. 23, 2014 -- Camille, who had been battling some of the top mares in harness racing without recent success, found a spot to her liking Tuesday when she rolled to victory in the $18,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows in the track's final live card of 2014. Camille finished seventh to Rocklamation in the Artiscape and sixth to Shelliscape in the Breeders Crown.

DAYTON, OH. - Stucklikeglue, one of just two fillies in a full field of Fillies & Mares Open pacers at Dayton Raceway on Friday night, used a strong stretch drive to prevail over her older counterparts in 1:52.4.
