It's not that Wygant Prince hasn't been a valuable commodity but in recent seasons the harness racing 10 year old has had only one win in 57 previous starts ,but the altered son of SJ's Photo put on his trotting shoes Friday night (June 30) in the NAADA Trot at Yonkers Raceway and turned the tables on those who have previously kept him out of the winners circle With owner, and longtime amateur driver Paul Minore at the controls the former high school coach took advantage of the two hole and sent his charge to the lead when the wings of the mobile gate folded and Wygant Prince led the field by the first stanza in :29.1. Perhaps by keeping a steady pace no one took a shot at the leader as the field approached the halfway point where the timer flashed 1:00.2. First to move was Hannah Miller with Rev It Now but they never ranged alongside to leader as Wygant Prince kept at his work and he was still in command as the field passed the third quarter in 1:29.3. However,in the lane Alan Schwartz, who was cruising along in the catbirds seat moved Ladys Big Stormont off the pylons to challenge for the lead but Wygant Prince was not to be denied and trotted on to a one length triumph in a 1:59.2 clocking over Schwartz's charge. Rev It now faded but hung on for third money. Despite having been lean in the win column over the past two seasons still Wygant Prince scored his 27th career victory and raised his lifetime earnings to over $350,000. And for Minore, who began his amateur driving career in 1994, he scored his 89th driving victory by John Manzi for NAADA

WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 28, 2017 -- TSM Photo Bugger, a perennial fan favorite who had struggled recently when facing elite harness racing company at The Meadows, ended his frustration Saturday when he pulled off a 14-1 upset in the $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot. TSM Photo Bugger had performed well in conditioned races but last won a Preferred event more than 11 months ago. That all changed Saturday when the 10-year-old SJ's Photo-Rewarding Wink gelding followed live cover, swung wide through the sloppy stretch and triumphed for Mike Wilder in 1:56. Trustworthy Kid shot the Lightning Lane for second, 2-3/4 lengths back, while Barn Girl, the only mare in the field, lacked racing room and settled for show.

In the first race on the Monday harness racing card of August 29 at Plainridge Park in Massachusetts, if one was to wager on a horse because they liked its name, it's a good bet they'd have wagered on Trotalot, an accomplished 9-year old altered son of SJ's Photo. And for those game individuals who did, they would be raking in the profits because Trotalot won the trotting contest in the eastern region of the CKG Billings Amateur Driving Series. Bob "the Headhunter" Hechkoff, an executive recruiter by trade, was at the controls when Trotalot took the lead from the pole position and led the field throughout winning the race in a time of 1:56.4. But that triumph didn't come easy especially when Just Like Lloyd and driver"Bay State Bob" Kenney came calling at the end of the mile. Trotalot and Just Like Lloyd matched stride for stride in the deep stretch but Hechkoff's charge prevailed, albeit by a long neck. "I heard Bob's (Kenney) trotter coming at us and gaining slowly but thankfully they ran out of racetrack," Hechkoff said. Third place went to Shelikescandy in rein to "Buffalo Bob" Davis. Trotalot paid $4.00 for win which was the trotter's fifth victoryof the season and 23rd of the gelding's career. He's owned by RBH Ventures and Kyle Spagnola and trained by Spagnola. For Hechkoff, it marked his 10th seasonal driving victory and 87th of his amateur career. Next Billings action will be in the Midwest region over the five-eighths mile track at Scioto Downs in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, September 3rd. John Manzi

Nichols, N.Y. -- A first-over bid into a fast pace would be enough for Bound For Fame in Friday (August 14) evening's $14,000 Open Trot at Tioga Downs, as he was able to overpower his five rivals for a 1:54.3 harness racing victory.   Corey Braden settled the 8-year-old S J's Photo gelding just off the pace, drafting from midfield through a :56.2 middle half before making his move out of fourth on the backstretch. As pacesetter Jailhouse Jessica (Jim Marohn, Jr.) opened up on the backstretch, Bound For Fame wore down odds-on favourite Spice It Up Lindy (Mike Simons), ultimately working clear in the final sixteenth. Bound For Fame expanded his lead to 1-1/4 lengths, prevailing easily in 1:54.3 over Jailhouse Jessica. Six Bax (Jim Taggart, Jr.) rallied through traffic from the back of the pack to save third.   Mike Forte trains Bound For Fame for Rags to Riches of PA, LLC and Mark Goldberg.   Live racing returns to Tioga on Sunday (August 16) afternoon, with an all-stakes program kicking off at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time.   by James Witherite, Tioga Downs

CLEARFIELD PA - Simeon, an sophomore altered son of Andover Hall trained and driven by David Wade of SJ's Photo fame, equaled the all-age harness racing track trotting record at the Clearfield County Fair on Tuesday, winning his division of the PA Fair Sire Stakes in 2:02 to match the previous standard set by Cottonwood Sam in 2003.   Simeon burst away from the gate "and improved his position from there," winning by 23¼ lengths in the record time, which was also recorded by Cottonwood Sam in the same age/gait/sex division. The gelding is co-owned by David Wade, Jerry Brittingham, William Peel III, and Delores Wade.   Many fans thought that if the trot record were to be broken or jeopardized, the challenge would be most likely to come from Wimborne Hanover, last year's 2YO Fair Championship winner and undefeated in six starts on the 2015 circuit. But Wimborne Hanover set the pace under constant pressure, and in the end finished third to the Lear Jetta gelding Bucks Jetta, who tallied in 2:03.2 for driver Wayne Long and owner/trainer Ron Lineweaver.   Ironically, a daughter of SJ's Photo, PJ's Photo, owns the local record for the three-year-old trotting fillies at 2:03.2, and that mark still stood at the end of the day. Fastest of the filly trot winners was Scarlett's Legacy, a daughter of SJ's Caviar who owns the circuit's divisional seasonal record, 2:01.2 at Gratz, and who won here in 2:04.2 by open lengths for trainer/driver Todd Schadel and owner Max J. Hempt, grandson of the Hall of Famer and vice president/treasurer of the Harness Racing Museum/Hall of Fame.   Max C. Hempt's longtime main trainer/driver, the redoubtable Roger Hammer, won three more times on Tuesday, one of them unusually for him a catch-drive, and he now has seven sulky successes and six training triumphs to lead those tallies going into today's final card of the meet, which features three-year-old pacers and which begins at noon.   Publicity Office, PA Fair Harness Horsemen's Association
