YONKERS, NY, Sunday, October 19, 2014--Yonkers Raceway has announced the octet of world-class trotters for this Saturday night's (Oct. 25th) International Trot Preview. The race, at one-and-one-quarter miles for a purse of $250,000, is a precursor to next season's return--after a two-decade hiatus--of the International Trot. The eight on the gate for the Preview are (alphabetically) Archangel, Arch Madness, reigning Harness Horse of the Year Bee a Magician, Commander Crowe, Market Share, Natural Herbie, Not Afraid and Sebastian K. the world's fastest trotter. Here's a quick cheat sheet... ARCHANGEL--A 5-year-old statebred son of Credit Winner with more than $1.1 million on account, he's the 2012 Yonkers Trot winner (track-record for 3YO colts [1:54.1]). After a year in the breeding shed, he returned for new trainer Ron Burke and took a life-best 1:50 effort earlier this season. Archangel is co-owned by Legendary Standardbred Farm (Alan Hainsworth) and Clare Semer. ARCH MADNESS--The 10-year-old Balanced Image gelding is a millionaire four times over for co-owners Marc Goldberg & Willow Pond LLC and trainer Trond Smedshammer. Arch Madness served notice that he's back in business this past Friday night, with an 11-length romp in a track-record 2:00.3 for the mile-and-one-sixteenth. BEE A MAGICIAN--2013's Harness Horse of the Year on the strength of a perfect 17-for-17 season, this 4-year-old daughter of Kadabra is defending the honor of the fairer sex here. Thrice a winner (with six seconds) in a dozen starts this season, Bee A Magician's lone local appearance was an effortless track-record (4YO mares) 1:55 in Open event in late August. The lass, a career $2.5 million earner, is trained by Nifty Norman for co-owners Mel Hartman, Herb Liverman and David McDuffee. COMMANDER CROWE--One of Europe's preeminent trotters, the 11-year-old Juliano Star gelding joins Arch Madness in the $4 million earnings club. His 60 career victories include the Elitlopp in 2012 and, more recently, Sweden's Ã…by Stora Pris invitational. This is his U.S. debut and third North American start, the first two of a pair of thirds in Breeders Crowns (2011 & '12). "Commander" is trained by Fabrice Souloy for owner Snogarps Gard AB (Barbro Wihlborg, Ulf Wihlborg & Joakim Wihlborg). MARKET SHARE--This 5-year-old son of Revenue S is approaching $3.5 million in lifetime loot. His resume includes wins in a pair of seven-figure events, the 2012 Hambletonian and that season's Canadian Trotting Derby. A season ago, it was the Breeders Crown. Maple Leaf Trot and TVG Free-For-All and American-National. In 2014, the Maxie Lee (Harrah's Philly) has been his biggest win to date. Market Share's lone local appearance was a third-place effort (to Archangel) in the 2012 Yonkers Trot. Linda Toscano trains for co-owners Richard Gutnick, Bill Augustine and T L P Stable. NATURAL HERBIE--A 4-year-old Here Comes Herbie gelding has gone from being the scourge of Indiana to one of North America's best trotters. A .500 hitter (11-for-22) this season and a shade better (23-for-45, $624,851) for his career, "Herbie" whipped Invitational class horses in the Vincennes (Meadowlands, life-best 1:51.4) and Noble Memorial (Scioto) for owner/trainer/driver Verlin Yoder. NOT AFRAID--If there's not a law that says a high-end trotting event can't be held without a representative of Jimmy Takter present, perhaps there ought to be. This 5-year-old S J's Caviar gelding is co-owned by Christina Takter, John Fielding and Goran Anderberg. He's a six-time winner each of the last two seasons with career earnings in excess of $400,000. Not Afraid defeated Arch Madness in a Pocono Preferred event earlier this month. However, this is certainly a step up the social circle from the crowd Not Afraid saw the last time he was here, going winless in five tries against overnighters in the first half of 2013. SEBASTIAN K--When your business card reads "World's Fastest Trotter," do you need any other references? The 8-year-old son of Korean, trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt for owner Knutsson Trotting (Michael Knutsson and Tristan Sjoberg), has taken the continent by storm in 2014. Eight wins and two seconds in 11 starts ($663,853), with his stunning 1:49 effort in a late June Pocono Invitational rewriting all the record books. A pair of stakes wins at the Meadowlands and one a Vernon are also included. His European prowess unquestioned (nearly $2.3 million in earnings), Sebastian K, as well as Commander Crowe, add to the tremendous list of overseas horses who have, ahem, "taken their talents to Westchester." This Saturday night's (Oct. 25) five stakes finals...$500,000 Yonkers Trot, $500,000 Messenger Stakes, $250,000 International Trot Preview, $150,854 Lady Maud and $124,590 Hudson Filly Trot shall be "open drawn" Tuesday afternoon.

Evening simulcasting accompanies all live programs, with afternoon simulcasting available daily. by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway  

A field of seven open pacers lined up behind the starter in the featured even at Harrah's Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon. The wagering public placed their support behind nineteen time winner Speed Again, despite a sixth place finish last time out against similar competition. Speed Again (Matt Kakaley) wasted little time getting in gear, as he used his gate speed to take command by the quarter in :27. After a half in :54.4 (:27.4), Speed Again faced a minor first-over challenge from Sparky Mark (Marcus Miller), but was able to sprint clear at three-quarters, which went in 1:22 (27.1). At the top of the stretch, Dial Or Nodial (David Miller) swung wide off cover, and Wake Up Peter (Brett Miller) closed fast up the inside, but there was no catching Speed Again. He won by two lengths in the end, stopping the clock in 1:50.4, while paying $5.20. He keyed an exacta that paid $30, and a trifecta that paid $142.40. Speed Again is owned by Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, and the Rtc Stables, and is trained by Ron Burke. In other news, driver Tim Tetrick had five wins on the afternoon, three of which were for trainer Scott Di Domenico. by Mike Bozich, for Harrah's Philadelphia

TORONTO, October 18 - The Fall Four Stakes eliminations were completed Saturday night at Woodbine Racetrack.

However, Artspeak would make a quick break on the turn and lost enough ground to take him out of contention. Pierce Hanover would capitalize on the break by the favourite and paced by the three-quarter pole leader, Arque Hanover, in the stretch and would go on to win by a length in 1:52.1. Blood Brother, who got a two-hole trip, finished second, while Artspeak regrouped and rallied to finish third.

Batavia, NY---The twelfth annual $50,000 Robert J. Kane Memorial Invitational pace will be held on Saturday (Oct. 18) and the star-studded group of Open class performers competing is led by Ron Burke stablemates $1.7 million winner Aracahe Hanover and Easy Again. The race is named in honor of the former chairman of the Western Regional Off Track Betting Corporation (WROTB) and his vision for a defunct racetrack. In 1998 Robert Kane saw the opportunity for WROTB to keep harness racing alive in Western New York and convinced the group to purchase the shuttered Batavia Downs. He then worked diligently for four years to obtain a racing license from the state of New York in order to re-open the track in 2002. With the improvement of the live racing product and the multiple expansions of the gaming floor in the years since the acquisition, what once was an empty building is now the pre-eminent attraction in all of Genesee County and that is due to the vision of Robert J. Kane. The race has played host to many great horses over the years including the six million dollar man, Foiled Again, who won it twice. But it was also won by one of this year's entrants and he set the all-time track record for pacers there when he did it. Aracache Hanover (Dragon Again-Armbro Cachet 1:48.1 $1,726,616) was a multiple stakes winner at two and three, including the $525,000 Confederation Cup. As an aged horse, he has been one of the most consistent free-for-all pacers in North America. He comes into this race off two consecutive wins at Yonkers Raceway and looks to be the one to beat. Although he is owned locally in Clarence Center, NY by Bill Switala and James Martin, he has only ever raced at Batavia Downs once before. That was in when he won the 2011 Kane Memorial and set the all-time track record of 1:51.1. Aracache Hanover is 3-1 morning line and will be driven by leading Downs driver, Kevin Cummings. Easy Again (Dragon Again-Kuklapanandollie 1:50.1 $712,381) came into the Burke stable ten months ago and immediately turned into a win machine. Since that time he has 11 victories in 26 starts and posted a lifetime mark of 1:50.1 at Scioto Downs while banking $264,360 in purse money. He currently has four wins out of his last seven starts, although he finished eighth last week. That was because he got parked the entire mile at Yonkers in Open handicap company. North American leading dash winning driver Aaron Merriman makes the trip to the oldest lighted harness track in America to team Easy Again who was made the morning line favorite at 5-2. Also in the race is $1.8 million winner Bolt The Duer (Ponder-Wonderbolt 1:47.4 $1,801,995) Bolt The Duer won the $500,000 Adios and the $415,000 Messenger Stake at three and has faced the toughest older pacers each week ever since. This year he has battled Sweet Lou, Foiled Again and Captaintreacherous just to name a few. Last week at Pocono Downs he drew the rail after six consecutive outside posts, only to get locked in behind a stalled horse while the eventual winner was pacing away. He brings ability and back class to the table here and will be heard from for sure. John Cummings Jr. and his aggressive driving style will be in the bike for trainer Peter Foley. Scoring from the outside is Aslan (Mach Three-Skyview 1:49.2 $207,377). He does not have the lofty stakes resume or million dollar earnings of some in this field because he was lightly raced at two and three. But he does have a lot of speed and it would appear that he comes into this race in his best condition ever based on his performance at Pocono Downs on September 20. He just got beat a neck in 1:47.3 and that clocking is two seconds faster than his lifetime mark taken in 2013. Plus this horse is handy; he can leave or he can come from behind. Ronnie Wrenn Jr. who is currently second in North America in dash winning drives is at the lines for trainer Tony O'Sullivan. Here is a look at the entire field: 1 Wazzup Wazzup Drew Monti 9-2-8 8-1 2 Easy Again Aaron Merriman 8-1-4 5-2 3 Bolt The Duer John Cummings Jr. 4-6-2 4-1 4 Aracache Hanover Kevin Cummings 1-1-2 3-1 5 Apprentice Hanover Anthony McDonald 1-6-3 7-2 6 What The Sheik Dave McNeight III 3-1-3 12-1 7 Aslan Ronnie Wrenn Jr. 1-2-1 6-1 The Kane Memorial Pace is carded as the seventh race of the night. The program also includes the $12,500 Brian Schroeder Memorial Trot, a $10,000 horses and geldings Open pace and a $10,000 mares Open pace. Post time for the evening is 6:35.

Ron Burke believes Sayitall BB is his best 3-year-old female pacer, which is why he kept her off the racetrack for more than three months during the summer. Sayitall BB, who has won 11 of 16 races and finished worse than third only once in her career, was lightly staked this season. Rather than race the filly against older horses, Burke decided to wait for better opportunities in the fall. Last week, Sayitall BB returned from hiatus to win the $28,000 American-National Stakes Consolation by 2-1/2 lengths over stablemate Southwind Silence in 1:51.3 at Balmoral Park. It was her first appearance since being supplemented to the $300,000 James M. Lynch Memorial and finishing second by a head to Fancy Desire on June 28 at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. On Friday night, Sayitall BB competes in the first of two $37,600 divisions of the Cinderella Stakes at Maywood Park. She will start from post five with Tim Tetrick at the lines. "There was no reason for me to race a 3-year-old against open mares," said Burke, who owns Sayitall BB with Weaver Bruscemi LLC. "She had these last couple stakes at the end (of the year) here so I gave her a break and just came back. She's my best 3-year-old filly hands down. I'm hoping she can finish up the year strong now. "She's my best chance at having a real top 4- or 5-year-old." Burke purchased Sayitall BB last October after the filly won her debut by 4-1/2 lengths in 2:00.4 at Lebanon Raceway. She went 4-for-4 the rest of the year in conditioned races at The Meadows. She continued racing into 2014, winning a leg of January's Blizzard Series at Woodbine and finishing sixth in the final. She enjoyed a rest until April, then went back to work, winning a preliminary leg of the New Jersey Sire Stakes and finishing second to Act Now in the championship. Sayitall BB won a conditioned race at Harrah's Philadelphia before heading to the Lynch, where she finished third in her elimination and second in the final. A daughter of stallion Tell All and mare Challo B B, Sayitall BB is a half-sister to million-dollar-earner Go On BB, who also raced for the Burke Stable. Burke on Sunday broke his own record for purses in a season, now at $22.25 million, and the depth of his stable helped make it easier to be patient with Sayitall BB. Stakes-winner Allstar Rating has earned $179,160 and Southwind Silence $128,915 this year to go with Sayitall BB's $167,660. "It is a luxury that we have here," Burke said. "We can do the right thing by them and not worry about it because somebody else will usually pick up the pace. We can be patient with them." Sayitall BB's stakes schedule still includes the upcoming Circle City and, if all goes well, she could be supplemented to the Breeders Crown in November. Burke's night at Maywood isn't limited to Sayitall BB. He also sends out Big Boy Dreams in the $180,000 Windy City Pace for 3-year-old male pacers. The colt starts from post three with Tetrick driving. To his inside are American-National Stakes runner-up Somewhere In L A and Let's Drink On It, who in September won a heat of the Little Brown Jug. "Even though he's a real big horse, I think he's more of a half-mile (racetrack) horse," Burke said. "Timmy's driven him before and done well with him, so I like this spot here. The three that look like the better horses all drew 1-2-3, so how they get shuffled out leaving is going to be a big thing on how we end up finishing." Big Boy Dreams, who is making his third start for Burke after spending the early part of the season in New York in the stable of Tracy Brainard, has won three of nine races this year and earned $78,495. Last year, the son of If I Can Dream-Stefani Blue Chip won five of 10 starts and finished second to He's Watching in the New York Sire Stakes championship. He is owned by Dominick Rosato. In his first start with Burke, Big Boy Dreams finished third behind Burke's Limelight Beach and He's Watching in a division of the Bluegrass Stakes at The Red Mile. Last week, he won the $25,000 American-National Consolation by four lengths in 1:50.1. Burke-trainee JK Endofanera, whose wins include the North America Cup and American-National Stakes, is the second-richest 3-year-old pacer this year, with $921,145. Limelight Beach, whose wins include the Little Brown Jug, has banked $524,118, good for sixth place in the division. "I don't know if (Big Boy Dreams) can go with the top four or five, but he's getting better, so we'll see," Burke said. "We've had Limelight and JK for a while, so we know what they are. With him, we don't really have a great idea what his top level is." by Ken Weingartner, for Harness Racing Communications  

With the record for purses in the bank and 11 weeks remaining on the calendar, trainer Ron Burke is now left to contemplate how much his stable can increase its earnings before the end of the year. Burke, who in 2013 became the first trainer to eclipse $20 million in a season -- finishing the campaign with $22.23 million, moved $9,333 beyond that figure this year thanks to earning $11,750 at Yonkers Raceway on Monday night. His stable broke last year's mark when pacer Rockstar Temper won the sixth race. "It's neat because coming into this year I thought we might not be able to reach that," Burke said. "Now to reach it this early, you wonder how far you can go. The next mark is 25 (million dollars). There's not a ton of stakes races left, but there's enough that if we can put together a run, maybe we could do 25." Last year, Burke's horses won 25 races worth at least $100,000. This season, the "Burke Brigade" has captured 38 races worth at least $100,000. Among those victories were 3-year-old pacer JK Endofanera in the North America Cup, 5-year-old pacer Sweet Lou in the Ben Franklin Pace and William R. Haughton Memorial, 3-year-old pacer Limelight Beach in the Little Brown Jug, and 2-year-old trotter Mission Brief in the Merrie Annabelle. He also won four New York Sire Stakes championships, plus two sire stakes crowns each in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and one in New Jersey. "Ohio is probably some of the reason, there's been a rebirth there and that gave us a chance to race a little bit more, and the Meadowlands was stronger this year, so that probably helps a little bit," Burke said. "And we have way more stakes horses than we've had in the past. We went with a lot more young horses. That's one area where I thought we were set up better because we had more young horses to start with. "But it gets to the point where we're racing against ourselves a lot of times. It's the law of diminishing returns. Sometimes we have four in a race; we can only win that race once. That's one thing we're trying to get away from and spread out to different areas a little more. We want to try to get away from racing so many times against ourselves." Burke, who leads the purse standings for trainers by more than $12 million, has won 887 of 4,164 races this year. Last season, Burke started 4,494 horses and won a record 1,090 races. "That's another thing, I didn't think we could ever start 5,000 horses, and we're going to be close," Burke said. "That's incredible when you figure it's like 13 a day, every day. That means if you start none today, you've got to start 26 tomorrow. But that's just how big it's gotten." Burke, who turns 45 on Thursday, has won a record 5,482 races and $117 million in his career. He took over the Burke Stable from his father, Mickey, on a fulltime basis in 2009 and was named Trainer of the Year in 2011 and 2013 by the U.S. Harness Writers Association. His Burke Racing Stable also was honored, with its partners, as Owner of the Year in 2013. by Ken Weingartner, for Harness Racing Communications  

JK Endofanera paced confidently to victory in the $227,000 American National Stake for harness racing 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings, stopping the timer in 1:49.1 against nine rivals.   The son of Art Major-Presidential Lady-Presidential Ball had Ron Pierce in the sulky for trainer Ronnie Burke and owners 3 Brothers Stable of New York, NY.   JK Endofanera took the lead at the start and never looked back, pacing through pedestrian panels of :27, :55 before stepping it up to 1:22 at the three-quarters and drawing off in the stretch. The victory gave Pierce a driving double on the night and Burke his fourth victory on the evening's program.   "It was no problem at all to make the top, we got around there easy," said Pierce. "We got a good breather the second quarter and he paced on in the third quarter and in the lane, I asked him to go a bit and never touched him with the whip, I just struck the wheel discs a few times. It was the first time I drove him and I was very impressed with him. I would think he's a candidate for divisional honors."   Somewhere in LA (Brett Miller) rallied for second, five lengths behind the winner, while Let's Drink On It (Travis Seekman) nailed show honors.   JK Endofanera now has $921,145 in seasonal earnings from nine wins, two seconds and one third in 14 starts. His career earnings now total $1,292,995 from 13 wins, five seconds and one third.   The seventh foal out of his dam, JK Endofanera is a full brother to the sensational 2-year-old filly Jk She'salady p,2,1:50.1s ($421,025) and to JK Fine Art p,4,1:50.2f ($374,102). He is a half-brother to JK Matchmaker (by Western Hanover) p,3,Q1:54.2 ($116,621); JK Rocketman (by Rocknroll Hanover) p,3,1:58.3f) ($20,401) and to JK Lady Like (by Artiscape) p,4,1:56.4 ($17,835) By Kimberly Rinker for Balmoral Park  

ANDERSON, Ind.—October 11, 2014—The three-year-old divisions of Indiana Sires Stakes action took center stage at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, October 11 as they played host to the fifth and final round of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals. The Hoosier state’s top sophomore competitors were out in full force and did not disappoint in each of the four divisions.   The stakes action kicked off with the sophomore trotting fillies and it was Hall Pass Helen and driver Trace Tetrick who emerged victorious in the $75,000 final. Uninvolved in the early stages of the race, Hall Pass Helen was able to find late racing room deep in the stretch to score in a lifetime best effort of 1:55.3. It was the second consecutive Indiana Sires Stakes Final victory for the daughter of Justice Hall -Rompaway Olympia and fourth win of the season from 15 outings. Trained by Kelly Goodwin, Hall Pass Helen sent her career bankroll over the $100,000 mark with the win for her connections of T. Halstead, K. Goodwin, T. Hathaway, and Chestnut Acres. Hall Pass Helen has now won four of 23 lifetime outings. Tetrick found the winner’s circle once more in the very next division of the stakes action with Color’s A Virgin taking home top honors in the $75,000 three-year-old pacing filly final. The daughter of Always A Virgin-Full Color capped off a near perfect stakes season as she scored in 1:52. After being out nearly every step of the mile, Color’s A Virgin used a :26.1 final panel to find the wire six lengths in front of her stablemate Candy’s A Virgin and Tyler Smith. Trained by Brian Brown, Color’s A Virgin scored her third victory in Indiana Sires Stakes action this season and 15th lifetime victory from 23 outings. The 2014 Jugette winner has now amassed $284,372 in 2014 for her connections at Emerald Highlands Farm. Rose Run Parker and Ricky Macomber Jr. kept their winning streak in-tact as they scored their fifth consecutive victory in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for three-year-old trotting colts. In near gate-to-wire fashion, Rose Run Parker stopped the timer in 1:54.1, just a fifth of a second off his lifetime best. Trained by Ron Burke, Rose Run Parker notched his 11th victory of his sophomore campaign from 13 outings. The victory pushed his career earnings to $437,250 for owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, and W. Haas Jr. In the final division of the stakes action on the night, Bluehourpower was able to overcome a taxing trip to return to his winning ways and score in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for three-year-old pacing colts. With driver Sam Widger at the lines, Bluehourpower held off a late charge from If I Lose and Trace Tetrick to stop the timer in 1:51. Trained and owned by Wilbur Eash, Bluehourpower has now won seven of 15 seasonal outings while amassing $172,925 in 2014. The son of Sand Shooter-Blue Hour notched his 11th lifetime victory from 26 starts. The 2014 Indiana Sires Stakes season will culminate with the top ten horses from each of the previous $75,000 finals returning to compete in a $200,000 Super Final on October 18 at Hoosier Park. With purses leaning toward the $2 million mark, the 14-race card slated for October 18 will be one of the richest nights offered in the Indiana Sires Stakes program. Live racing will continue at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Tuesday, October 14 with a 14-race card. With a daily post time of 5:15 p.m., the 2014 live racing season at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will be conducted through November 15. Emily Gaskin

Well Hello There and harness racing driver Matt Kakaley led from pillar to post in the $61,150 American National Stake for freshman pacing fillies Saturday night in Balmoral's third race.   Facing just three rivals--after two scratches in the field of six--Well Hello There posted a 1:53.2 clocking for trainer Ronnie Burke, who conditions the daughter of Well Said-Helen Of Leda-Pro Bono Best for Burke Racing Stable, Blue Chip Bloodstock, Our Horse Cents Stable and Weaver Bruscemi.   "I wanted to go the front and get some easily fractions and then just sprint home," said Kakaley. "I was pretty comfortable and didn't realize that other horse had made a break, but when we turned for home, I asked her to pace on, and she responded well and paced strong all the way to the wire."   Kakaley had Well Hello There out quickly from the gate to nail the lead going into the first turn and she comfortably posted splits of :28.4, :57.4 and 1:26, with Angel Demon (Todd Warren), Dunside Splash (Travis Seekman) and Mr Leland's Filly (Casey Leonard) following her in single file fashion. When Leonard asked Mr Leland's Filly to move in the final turn, the daughter of Sportsmaster made an uncharacteristic break, costing her precious lengths. She recovered quickly however, and as Well Hello There drew off by nearly six lengths, Mr Leland's Filly was able to collar Duneside Splash for show honors. Angel Demon held steady in second.   Well Hello There now has three wins in 11 seasonal starts and $188,931 in career earnings. She recoded a mark of 1:53 at Philadelphia earlier in the season. A $50,000 yearling purchase at the 2013 Standandbred Horse Sale at Harrisburg, Well Hello there is a half-sister to Natural Leda p,3,1:50.1f ($122,67) and to Ring Leda p,4, 1:51f ($78,495)--both by Bettor's Delight.     By Kimberly Rinker for Balmoral Park  

Freehold, NJ --- Ron Burke brings 16 horses to Balmoral Park for Saturday’s (Oct. 11) American-National Stakes card and could leave with the most single-year purse earnings of any harness racing trainer in history. Burke established the record of $22.2 million last year and entered Friday with $21.6 million. Saturday’s card at Balmoral features eight American-National Stakes for trotters and pacers and purses in excess of $1.3 million. “I really thought [breaking the earnings record] would be the hardest thing for us to do,” said Burke, who last year became the first trainer to win 1,000 races in a season and has 872 victories this year. “But we got off to such a good strong start this year, better than even normal, and that made a lot of difference. “If everything keeps going like its going we should be alright.” Leading the “Burke Brigade” Saturday is Foiled Again, who is the morning line favorite in the $179,000 American-National for older pacers. The 10-year-old Foiled Again is the richest horse in North American harness racing history, with $6.6 million in purses. Foiled Again is one of four Burke horses in the field, along with Bettor’s Edge, Clear Vision and Ultimate Beachboy. Burke’s JK Endofanera, who in June won the North America Cup, is the favorite in the $227,000 American-National for 3-year-old male pacers. Burke also has four horses in this race, with Little Brown Jug winner Limelight Beach, At Press Time and Somesizesomestyle joining JK Endofanera. Other top contenders for Burke are Wishing Stone and Archangel in the $166,300 American-National for older trotters and Well Hello There in the $61,150 American-National for 2-year-old female pacers. Trainer Jimmy Takter, who is second to Burke with $9.83 million in purses this year, has the favorite in the $203,000 American-National for 3-year-old male trotters, Father Patrick, as well as the $150,000 division for 3-year-old female trotters, Shake It Cerry. by Ken Weingartner, Harness Racing Communications 

Limelight Beach picked the perfect time of year to blossom.   The sophomore son of Somebeachsomewhere has done nothing less than win his last three starts with aplomb for trainer Ronnie Burke, and now tackles the daunting job of capturing Saturday's 11th race--the $227,000 American National Pace for 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings.   He's certainly proven he's up to the task, as Burke harnessed the bay gelding to a pair of victories on Sept. 18 in one of harness racing's most prestigious events--the Little Brown Jug--the second leg of pacing's Triple Crown.   Contested over Delaware, Ohio's half-mile, county fair oval, Limelight Beach and driver Yannick Gingras captured the 69th edition of the pacing classic in straight heats of 1:51 and 1:50.4.   "It was a dream come true--winning the Jug," Gingras said, after he and trainer Burke had both captured their very first Little Brown Jug title.   "Hopefully, this is the start of something big for him," Burke noted. "Maybe he's coming into his own now."   It would appear that is the case. On Sept. 27, Limelight Beach fittingly scored an impressive, wire-to-wire victory in a $92,600 Somebeachsomewhere Bluegrass Stake division at Lexington's Red Mile in a career best 1:49.1.   Limelight Beach had been paired with Delaware-Ohio based trainer Brian Brown until early July, when he made the switch to the Burke Stable.   Owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, M1 Stable and Wingfield Brothers, Limelight Beach won six of 10 races last year, with victories in Bluegrass and International Stallion stakes divisions as a 2-year-old, earning $210,192.   This season he's amassed $515,038 from 15 starts with three wins, seven seconds and one third, pushing his lifetime bankroll to $725,230.   Limelight Beach was a $25,000 yearling purchase at the 2012 Standardbred Horse Sale at Harrisburg and is the second foal out of the Badlands Hanover mare Benear p,4,1:49.3f ($319,321). He is a full brother to Benearthebeach p,3,1:53.2f ($66,226) and Momas Got A Gun p,2,1:55f ($13,420).   His main rival appears to be stablemate and million dollar earner JK Endofanera--who won the $218,300 Tattersalls at The Red Mile in 1:49.1 on Oct. 4--and Let's Drink On It, who also won a heat of the Jug in 1:51, but then finished a bottled-up second to Limelight Beach in the final.   Burke, who has conditioned 5,464 winners to $116,631,100 in career earnings, will also throw the harness on the backs of Somesizesomestyle (post 2) and At Press Time (post 3) in addition to JK Endofanera (post 9) and Limelight Beach (post 8).

There's never quite been a horse like Foiled Again. This ageless harness racing wonder returns and battles and keeps on truckin' like no Standardbred ever has...and probably never will again. He's the richest pacer in history with $6,662,731 to his credit with stats of 82-54-32 in 219 career starts and has won some of harness racing biggest events, including the $500,000 Breeders Crown Open Pace, at Pocono Downs on Oct. 19, 2013 in 1:49.2 over a sloppy track.   He also has won this event, in 2011 in 1:51.4, and will be looking for a repeat triumph from post six in Saturday's 12th race, the $179,000 American National Aged Pace.   Foiled Again's career didn't begin fashionably. Born on May 8, 2004 at Englishtown, NJ, the chocolate bay gelding was bred by Barbara Matthews of Aiken, SC, and was purchased for $20,000 as a yearling at the 2005 Standardbred Horse Sale at Harrisburg by Patrick Lacey of Yonkers, NY.   He earned just $59,540 as a 2- and 3-year-old in 2006 and 2007 and never raced for a purse of over $31,000 during those seasons. He also lost his final 17 starts as a sophomore. In fact, Foiled Again did not race in any event with a purse of $100,000 or higher until his 50th career start!   But the Burke's saw something they liked in the son of Dragon Again-In A Safe Place-Artsplace so they bought him from Lacey for $62,500 in early July 2008. He went on to earn $337,139 that season putting up a 4-year-old record of 1:49.3f at Chester.   Since those early days with team Burke, Foiled Again has been named Dan Patch Older Pacer of the Year on three consecutive occasions. The amount of money he's earned since turning seven years of age--some $4.31 million--is enough on its own to make him North America's richest pacer ever. As it stands, he's tied with the famous retired Italian trotter Varenne as one of only two horses in harness racing history to post three consecutive million dollar winning seasons (2011, 2012, 2013).   "If people don't rate him, if not the greatest, as one of the greatest in history, I don't know what else he has to do," said Yannick Gingras, the gelding's regular driver. "He gives me chills, I can tell you that. It seems like every year he figures out a way to rewrite the record books."   Owned by Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and JJK Stables and trained by Ron Burke, Foiled Again, now 10-years-old, paced the fastest mile of his career, when he was race-timed in 1:47.1 while finishing third to Sweet Lou in a world-record 1:47 mile in the Ben Franklin Pace at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs this past June. He's also won the following races twice: The Kane at Batavia, the Levy at Yonkers, the Molson in Ontario and Northfield Park's Battle of Lake Erie.   "I can't say enough about him and what he's done for our family and for our whole stable." said his trainer and co-owner Ronnie Burke. "He's been unbelievable." On Sept. 15, he captured the eighth annual $220,000 Bobby Quillen Memorial at Harrington Raceway for an unprecedented third time in 1:50.2, the best winning time of his 10-year-old season. In 2013, Foiled Again earned $1,404,984, taking his lifetime best mark of 1:48 in a June race at Pocono Downs. He won 11 races last season in 29 starts, with six seconds and seven third. In 2012, Foiled Again earned $1.2 million, becoming at age 8, the oldest pacer to have a million-dollar year. He also was named the sport's best older male pacer for the second consecutive year by the U.S. Harness Writers Association. In 2011, at the age of 7, Foiled Again was voted Pacer of the Year by USHWA, and was the first pacer older than age 4 to ever receive the honor.   Gingras has sat behind Foiled Again in the majority of his starts since the pacer joined the Burke Stable.   "I want him to get the recognition he deserves," Gingras said. "A lot of people think he's a small-track horse, and at the end of the day he's not the fastest horse but he outlasts every one of them. He's been through about three different groups of horses, guys that retired or went to stud, and he's still around and kicking butt against some 4-year-olds."   Foiled Again is the second of nine foals out of the Artsplace mare In A Safe Place p,3,1:54.4M ($84,683) and is a half-brother to Manhattan Design (by The Panderosa) p,5,1:55.2 ($68,109); Pinball Machine (by Cambest) p,4,1:54.2m ($31,902) and to Place Your Best (by Cambest) p,3,1:58.4H.   Foiled Again just never quits   By Kimberly Rinker

Last time: The Kentucky Futurity, the second leg of Trotting’s Triple Crown, capped off two exciting weeks of Grand Circuit racing at The Red Mile.   USTA/Mark Hall photo Nuncio and John Campbell captured the Kentucky Futurity at The Red Mile. Team Takter provided Red Mile fans with a thrilling stretch duel between stablemates Nuncio and Father Patrick who slugged it out to the wire, with Nuncio emerging victorious by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:51.3 in the 122nd edition of the $435,000 Kentucky Futurity for sophomore trotting colts. Hall of Famer John Campbell steered Nuncio, a son of Andover Hall-Nicole Isabelle, to his eighth win of the season and his 13th career victory for owner Stall TZ, Inc. He now has $1,488,970 in career earnings. Nuncio had the lead from start to finish, trotting through splits of :27.2, :54.1 and 1:22.2 before Father Patrick (Yannick Gingras) began to challenge him. It appeared that Father Patrick was going to trot right past Nuncio, but the latter dug in hard and held off his stablemate. Shake It Cerry put forth a dominating performance in the 49th edition of the $224,000 Kentucky Filly Futurity, stopping the timer in 1:52.2 for driver Ron Pierce and trainer Takter. The 1-5 public’s choice, a daughter of Donato Hanover-Solveig, pushed her career earnings to $1,562,205 for the Solveig’s Racing Partners. Shake It Cerry took the lead handily in rein to Pierce, trotting comfortably through fractions of :27.4, :56.2 and 1:25.1 before drawing off in the stretch by 4-1/2 lengths. Vanity Matters (David Miller) made a bid first over going to the three-quarters and held on to be second, while Scream And Shout (Yannick Gingras) got up for third.
