Harness racing colts take first steps down path blazed by successful siblings Four Grassroots divisions of two-year-old pacing colts went postward at Mohawk Racetrack on Thursday evening and a quartet of well-bred youngsters took home the Ontario Sires Stakes hardware. Leading off in the first division, Bet On Brett and driver Mike Saftic took immediate control of the race from Post 1 and laid down fractions of :27.2, :57.3 and 1:27 on their way to a 1:54.4 victory. Streakavana closed hard to be second, one and one-half lengths behind the winner, and Mach Déjà Vu was hot on his heels in third. "He left the gate really sharp and then settled down nicely," said Campbellville, ON resident Saftic. "He got home very strong." Saftic qualified two other colts in the first division, including runner-up Streakavana, but chose the Marcel Barrieau trainee as his mount for the Grassroots season opener. "He looked more mature than the other two at this point," explained Saftic, who had not driven Bet On Brett before Thursday's contest. Barrieau prepped the Sportswriter son for his provincial stakes debut with a pair of qualifiers at Mohawk on June 17 and 25, finishing fourth in both outings. The Cambridge, ON resident shares ownership of Bet On Brett with Gestion Mastel Inc. of Longueuil, QC and Conrad Leber of Montreal, QC. The partners acquired the half-brother to three $150,000-plus winners for $80,000 at the 2015 Harrisburg Yearling Sale. Bet On Brett In the second Grassroots division driver Mario Baillargeon also opted to control the pace, putting Play For Gold on the lead heading by the :28.1 opening quarter and carrying on through fractions of :57.2 and 1:26.1. Under fierce pressure from fan favourite Aston Hill Dave in the stretch, Play For Gold dug deep and kept a nose in front to secure the 1:543 victory. Aston Hill Dave settled for second and Silverinyourpocket closed hard to be third. Milton, ON resident Baillargeon crafted the win for trainer Jacques Dupont of Repentigny, QC and his partners in Les Ecuries Dorleans Inc., along with numbered company 9099 3833 Quebec Inc. of Sorel-Tracy, QC and Gestion C Levesque 2005 Inc. of St-Hyacinthe, QC. The group selected the Shadow Play son Play For Gold out of the Lexington-Selected Yearling Sale, offering up $20,000 for the half-brother to two $100,000-plus winners. Play For Gold Sent off as the heavy favourite in the third division, driver Paul MacDonell of Guelph, ON chose to continue the front-end trend, sending Mc Mach after the lead from Post 2. The Mach Three son powered through a :28.2 quarter, :57.1 half and 1:26.3 three-quarters before accelerating away to a two length victory in 1:54. Down On My Luck and Tremendous Play followed Mc Mach from start to finish, earning the second and third-place share of the $18,000 purse. MacDonell drove Mc Mach to the win for trainer Bob McIntosh of Windsor and his partners Al McIntosh Holdings Inc. of Leamington, ON and Randy Liepa of Livonia, MI. Like the first two winners, Mc Mach has several successful half-siblings, including former Grassroots regular Western Empress, a winner of $229,915 in her career to date. "He's improved nicely since his first qualifier," said MacDonell, who piloted the colt to a fourth-place results in a June 25 qualifier and a win in a July 1 effort, both at Mohawk. "He may step up to the Gold level before year's end." Mc Mach The final Grassroots division saw the only come-from-behind effort of the evening. Starting from Post 5, driver Sylvain Filion settled Yogi Bayama in the middle of the pack and watched as rivals Kingston Seelster and Master The View battled to a :27.1 first quarter. Favourite Master The View took over heading for the :57 half and continued to lead the field through the 1:26.1 three-quarters as Filion and Yogi Bayama stepped into the outer lane behind Pop N Liam. Turning for home Pop N Liam and Yogi Bayama were matching strides with Master The View, but when Filion asked his colt for another gear Yogi Bayama pulled away to a two length win in 1:54.1, leaving Master The View and Pop N Liam to settle for second and third. Stephane Larocque of Carlisle, ON trains Yogi Bayama for owner-breeder Bayama Farms Inc. of Saint-Andre-D'Argenteuil, QC. The Sportswriter half-brother to $168,610 winner Urbana Bayama qualified at Rideau Carleton Raceway on June 15, finishing fourth, and at Mohawk Racetrack on June 25, finishing sixth. The colt made his debut in a two-year-old overnight event at Mohawk on July 1, finishing second. "He's all right, he looked good tonight," said Bayama Farms' Yves Filion, who piloted the colt in his first qualifier. "He had a perfect trip and he looked like he win it kind of easy, but we don't know if he's going to be a good Gold or not. "A few more starts we'll know better how good he is," added the horseman, who will be inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame on August 3. "So far he looks all right. We hope for the best." Yogi Bayama Yogi Bayama and his peers will have their next opportunity to prove just how good they are when Mohawk hosts the second two-year-old pacing colt Grassroots leg on Friday, July 15. Mohawk Racetrack's two-year-old showcase continues tomorrow, July 8, as the Campbellville oval hosts the freshman pacing fillies in four Grassroots divisions. The first race goes in behind the starting gate at 7:30 pm and the fillies will show off their skills in Races 3, 5, 7, and 9. Ontario Racing

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, June 28, 2016 - Harness racing driver Stephane Gendron had the hot hands in capturing both the pacing and trotting features at the Hippodrome 3R Tuesday, ending the program with three winners on the night. The most impressive of the three wins came in the ninth race feature pace with 32-1 long shot Glass Shadow. The race began with a dogfight for early control of the lead by Solid Performance (Guy Gagnon) and race favorite SOS Mach Xtreme (Stephane Brosseau) with Solid Performance winning the battle to the opening quarter mile in :27.3. As they came by the grandstand the first time, Stephane Gendron came first-over with Glass Shadow and began grinding it out as Solid Performance led the field to the half mile in :58.2 and then to the three-quarters in 1:27.3. Then, despite being on the outside for most of the one-mile race, Glass Shadow would not give in, showed true grit and came on in the stretch to win by a head in 1:56.3. Solid Performance was second with SOS Mach Xtreme third. Trained by Charles Gaudreaulti, it was the fourth win this year for Glass Shadow, a five-year-old gelded son of Shadow Play, who paid $66.10 to win. In the eighth race feature trot they were four-wide from the start and around the first turn as Force Naturelle (Simon Delisle) gave way to Caroluzzo (Stephane Gendron), who forced the 3/5 favorite, Pridecrest (Guy Gagnon) to take back into second place. They went by the opening quarter mile in a quick :28.3. Caroluzzo then led the field past the half mile in :59.3 as Uncle Freddie (Louis-Phillipe Roy) came first-over to challenge and pressed the leader to the three-quarters in 1:29.1. Then in the stretch drive, Pridecrest could not gain any ground after sitting the pocket trip as Caroluzzo won by two lengths in 1:59. Force Naturelle was third. It was the third win in seven starts this year for Caroluzzo. The seven-year-old son of Musclesextrodinair is trained by Daniel Martin for owner Michael Cote Gagnon of Terrebonne, QC and paid $8.60 to win. Track Notes: Wild River Swan showed she is primed and ready to go in the opening round of the $450,000 Breeders Cup Series at 3R next Sunday as she was an upset winner at odds of 9-1 in the fourth race pace. Driven by Guy Gagnon for trainer Dr. John Bradbury, the three-year-old daughter of Sportswriter went three-wide in the backstretch, grinding it out until the top of the stretch when she pulled away for a one and three-quarter length lifetime mark in 2:00.1, paying $21.90 to show.

CAMPBELLVILLE, June 18 - Harness racing driver Yannick Gingras put Lady Shadow on the front and never looked back to win the $370,000 Roses Are Red Saturday night on the Pepsi North America Cup undercard at Mohawk Raceway. An impressive group of ten older pacing mares clashed in the Roses Are Red, but just like last year, Lady Shadow took home the winner's share of the purse. The Ron Adams trainee was put on the engine by Gingras from post three, as the rest of the field lined up in post position order. Lady Shadow carved out fractions of :26.3, :54.1 and 1:21 to bring the field to the top of the lane. In the stretch, the Adams trainee continued to power along and showed her class winning by a length and a half in a career best 1:48.1. "Believe me I was surprised too that there was no speed on the outside," said Gingras. "I watched a few of her replays and looked at her lines from last year and before that because I was actually thinking about racing her off the back, especially with the way the card has been playing out, the front hasn't been that good. "Obviously she is better on the front, her lines show that, but when the gate folded nobody left so it made my decision easy." Waasmula, who got a pocket trip, finished second, while Solar Sister came up the rail for third. A five-year-old daughter of Shadow Play, Lady Shadow pushed her career earnings over the $1 million mark with her 19th career win. She is owned by David Kryway, Carl Atley, Edwin Gold and BFJ Stable. Lady Shadow now has three wins in nine starts this season. She paid $10.50 to win. Mark McKelvie  

JUNE 16, 2016 - Driver Sylvain Filion, the reigning Lampman Cup title holder, is off to another quick start in the Ontario Sires Stakes harness racing program, padding his early season lead with a pair of Grassroots victories at Mohawk Racetrack on Thursday evening. Filion opened the program, which featured six $18,000 divisions for the three-year-old pacing colts and geldings, with a sharp 1:51.4 win aboard Spirit Shadow. "I didn't know him at all," said Filion of the first-time OSS starter. "I know the trainer, he's a buddy of mine, Jacques Dupont, and he said he liked him. I just went with my feeling and he left the gate real good, and then we got covered up by the favourite and when I moved him down the lane he just exploded. That was a nice surprise, I didn't really expect that." Leaving from Post 8, Filion rolled Spirit Shadow to the front before the :27 opening quarter, but quickly picked up cover from Vegas Dream who led the field to the :56 half and 1:25 three-quarters. Able to slip out of the pocket in the stretch, Spirit Shadow laid down a :26.2 final quarter to claim the Grassroots trophy. Vegas Dream settled for second, with Chalk Player earning the third-place finisher's share. Unraced at two, the Shadow Play son now has four wins and two thirds in eight sophomore outings for Dupont and owner Denis Goyette of Laval, QC. Filion's second victory came in the third division with Xpert Bayama, who controlled the tempo en route to a 1:51.2 score over last year's Grassroots champion St Lads Moonwalk. Solo Story finished well behind the duelling leaders in third. "I thought he was a little flat last time he raced and Stephane (Larocque) told me he done some vet work on him and he was much better tonight," noted Filion, a three-time OSS driving champion. "I could feel in the post parade he was livelier, and he was way more aggressive, so I just turned him loose and he responded well." Also unraced at two, Xpert Bayama improved his record to three wins and one second in six starts for trainer Stephane Larocque of Carlisle, ON and owner-breeder Bayama Farms Inc. of Saint-Andre-D'Argenteuil, QC. The Up The Credit son took three full seconds off his personal best with Thursday's effort. Another three-time Lampman Cup winner, Moffat, ON resident Jody Jamieson, also scored a Grassroots driving double at Mohawk on Thursday, guiding Continual Hanover to a win in the second division and Imsporty to victory in the fifth. Jamieson put Continual Hanover on the front just past the sharp :26.3 opening quarter put up by Filion and Azul Pool, but was immediately challenged by Baddestnbestest. Both Jamieson and Filion quickly circled out around the longshot leader, with Continual Hanover grabbing the rail by the :55.3 half. Azul Pool pressed hard through the 1:24.1 three-quarters, but Continual Hanover stayed game to secure the two length victory in 1:52.2. Tango Star sprinted home to be second, leaving Azul Pool to settle for third. "I really couldn't have driven Continual (Hanover) much worse in his first start of the year," admitted Jamieson. "I used him too many times and he still bailed me out with a great performance. I've always thought he is barely a notch lower than the Gold division." Jamieson steers Continual Hanover for owner-trainer Jack Darling of Cambridge, ON and piloted the colt to a Gold Series win and two Grassroots division wins last season. The Bettor's Delight son boosted his lifetime earnings to $117,400 with Thursday's win, his sixth in 13 lifetime starts. Staring from Post 1 with Imsporty in the fifth division, Jamieson settled the Sportswriter son on the rail early and waited until the final turn to take aim on the leaders. On top by just over three lengths at the three-quarter pole, Imsporty stayed game to the wire and earned his first Grassroots trophy with a 1:52.2 effort. Speedling and Daylight Rush completed the top three. "Imsporty is a super little guy," said Jamieson, who steers the gelding for his father, trainer Carl Jamieson of Rockwood, ON, and Thomas Kyron of Toronto. "He's always had lots of talent, but he just hasn't had a lot of luck. Hopefully this win tonight has ended that string of luck and started a new one." The other two Grassroots divisions went to New Talent and Piranha. Guelph, ON resident Paul MacDonell steered New Talent to his first OSS win for trainer Bob McIntosh of Windsor and his partners C S X Stables of Liberty Center, OH and Al McIntosh Holdings Inc. of Leamington, ON. The Mach Three son stopped the teletimer at 1:51.2, besting Derecho and Bad Gamer. Driver Trevor Henry of Arthur, ON used a come-from-behind strategy to guide Piranha to a 1:52 win for trainer Raymond Farmer and owner-breeder John Turigliatto of Temperance, MI. The Badlands Hanover son reeled in Red Dog Saloon and B Fast Eddie with a :26.3 final quarter. The three-year-old pacing colts and geldings will return to Mohawk Racetrack on July 1 for their second Grassroots start. Ontario Sires Stakes action continues at the Campbellville oval this week as the three-year-old pacing fillies kick off their Grassroots season on Friday, June 17. The fillies will be featured in Races 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10, with the first race going postward at 7:30 pm. Ontario Racing

Veteran harness racing trainer Paul Hill has long been regarded as a dab hand with young horses so it came as no surprise that his two-year-old Playing Arkabella powered her way to an impressive win in the Elderslie Horse Care 2YO Sweepstakes final for fillies over 1609m at UBET Park Hobart yesterday. Playing Arkabella was forced to face the breeze outside of the leader Harshali for the entire race but she made light of the task to go on and score by 1-1/4 metres from Harshali with Volkova Leis over eight metres away third. Hill trained last year's fillies'' sweepstakes winner Chica Bella and he also prepared Almost Famous to win the race in 2001. The winner was well driven by Ricky Duggan who was content to allow the filly to race in the "death" but without putting too much pressure on the daughter of Shadow Play. "This filly has done everything I've asked of her since she came into work and today was her best effort because it was tough out there in those windy conditions but she showed her courage," Hill said. "She is going to be a better three-yea-old so everything she's done so far and is likely to do for the rest of her two-year-old season is a bonus." Playing Arkabella was bred by Kareena Blackwell who also owns the filly in partnership with Brad Jones and Ben Rossendell. "I am absolutely rapt because as a breeder you always hope you can get one that can win a feature race so this is the best feeling ever," Blackwell said. "I work at Roberts (rural trader) so I asked a couple of my work mates Brad Jones and Ben Rossendell to be part of a syndicate to race this filly so they'll both be thrilled." Peter Staples

Off-the-layoff Tessa Seelster (George Brennan, $12.40) finished what she started Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's harness racing $40,000 filly and mare Open Handicap Pace. In play early from her assigned post position No. 2, it was "Tessa" working around Mach it a Par (Brian Sears). She then completed her rounds (:27.4, :56.3, 1:24.2, 1:52.1) while beating her seven elders. Carolsideal (Dan Dube), as the 9-5 favorite, hung around first-up, though never getting to "Tessa," who owned a length-and-a-half lead into the lane. She held off a second-over Krispy Apple (Jason Bartlett) by a neck, with Mach it a Par, Caroslideal and Al Raza N (Mark MacDonald) settling for the remainder. For third choice Tessa Seelster, a 4-year-old daughter of Shadow Play co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi and Jonathan Newman, she's now 4-for-4 this season after her first purse start since late January. The exacta paid $82.50, the triple returned $337 and the superfecta paid $1,335. Friday evening's $30,000 Filly and Mare Preferred Handicap Pace was won by Know it All (Eric Abbatiello, $10) in 1:54. Derby Day Saturday finds the Raceway in full Churchill Downs simulcast mode, with selected mutuel windows opening at 10 AM in advance of a 10:30 AM first post. The track apron has music, food and drink specials and the obligatory hat contest (with special guest judge Bethenny Frankel and cash prizes). The regular live program begins at 7:10 PM.

Yonkers Raceway's harness racing Blue Chip Matchmaker series began Friday night, with the sport's best pacing mares embarking upon a six-week odyssey. Three consecutive, $40,000 events comprised the opening round. The series starter saw Al Raza N (Jordan Stratton, $15.20) snap 9-10 fave Krispy Apple (Jason Bartlett) right nearing the wire in a season's-best 1:52.3. Hazmatt (Brian Sears) was third, with Delightful Dragon (Brent Holland) and Skippin' By (Yannick Gingras) settling for the remainder. It was a certified scrum early with Krispy Apple making the lead by looping Regil Elektra (Tim Tetrick). Regil Elektra was out again, winning the :27.1 opening quarter-mile. Soon after, Sandbetweenurtoes (Jody Jamieson), having dropped in third, made her second move, leading at a :55.4 intermission. Down the backside, Krispy Apple took out and third and went by a defenseless Sandbetweenurtoes with the greatest of ease. The people's preference opened 3¼ lengths by the 1:23.4 three-quarters and had a couple of lengths entering the lane. However, she couldn't close the sale. Al Raza N, unhurried from post position No. 2, moved from third-over (second-up after Krispy Apple cleared the lead), continuing to make up ground. Advancing to third in and out of the final turn, she wore down her target by a half-length. The roster was rounded out by a shuffled-out Regil Elektra and a dropping-anchor Sandbetweenurtoes. For fifth choice Al Raza N, a 6-year-old Down Under daughter of Gotta Go Cullect owned by Durazzano Stable and trained by Agostino Abbatiello, it was her second win in three seasonal starts. The exacta paid $44, with the triple returning $316. Friday's second Matchmaker event saw rank outsider Mach it a Par (George Brennan, $81) do her best Middle Tennessee State impression, picking off defending series champion Venus Delight by a nose in 1:53.2. Venus Delight had engaged, then overhauled, 4-5 fave Secrets Out N (Sears). That one, after getting away third, controlled the crowd (:27.4, :57, 1:25.2) until early in the lane before faltering. Mach it a Par, from post No. 6, operated from second-over. She and Venus Delight battled for the tiara, with the former just getting to the latter. Yagonnakissmeornot (Dan Dube) lost some contact in the pocket but managed third, with Sell a Bit N (Stratton) and Cheyenne Robin (Corey Callahan) settling for the minor moolah. Secrets Out N faded to sixth. For Mach it a Par, a 6-year-old daughter of Mach Three co-owned by D'Elegance Stable IX, Carmine Iannacone, T L P & Gandolfo Stables and trained by Richard Banca, it was her first win in six seasonal starts. The exacta paid $721, with the triple returning $1,699. Mach it a Par, off a sale/barn change, had been off nearly four weeks (with a "sick line" in between). The evening final series event was won by a down-the-road Lady Shadow (Callahan, $7), who overcame an outside post No. 7 and widened late. Lady Shadow had to wait her turn, finally getting around 7-5 favorite Gallie Bythe Beach (Matt Kakaley). From there, she had little issues (:27.4, :56.3, 1:25, 1:53.4), prevailing by 2¼ lengths. "Gallie" chased from the pocket and saved second, with Jungle Genie N (Bartlett), first leader Inittowinafortune (Tyler Buter) and For the Ladies N (Stratton) grabbing the smaller envelopes. For second choice Lady Shadow, a 5-year-old daughter of Shadow Play co-owned by David Kryway, Carl Atley, Edwin Gold & BFJ Stable and trained by Josh Green, it was a season-debuting victory.. The exacta paid $17, the triple returned $74.50 and the superfecta paid $568. Saturday night's card brings the opening round of the George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series. Six, $50,000 divisions (races 4,5,6,7, 9 and 10) each feature seven Free-For-Allers.

Breeding for the harness racing market in Australasia is never an easy business at the best of times especially if you are trying to market and sell fillies, Buyers are notoriously reluctant to pay anything like the same premium for well bred fillies as they are for well bred colts but we feel that are missing out on a lot of opportunities because the buyers have missed the changes taking place in the stallion market down under. When you look at the present line up of stallions that are dominating the racing scene in Australasia, then just about all the elite stallions are outstanding filly sires. Bettor's Delight is without doubt the best filly sire in the world today, continually churning out champion fillies each season and in big numbers and they are keenly sought after at yearling sales in both hemispheres. Rock N Roll Heaven is another sire whose fillies to be honest are better than his colts in North America, Australia and New Zealand in his siring career to date. American Ideal is another stallion whose fillies often outperform his colts on the track while Shadow Play has five mares amongst his top eight earners in North America. So with such great filly sires dominating the stallion market in Australasia, you would think that fillies would be keenly sought after especially since any well bred ones have a good residual value once they have finished racing which the colts in the main just don't have. Looking through this weekends Australian Pacing Gold Sale at Brisbane and a great number of the fillies would appear to have a high residual value post any racing career. A lot of them come from high profile New Zealand families which are very current in the New Zealand market and have just fetched significant five figure sums at the latest sales in New Zealand. We thought we would highlight a couple of lots from Brisbane that in our opinion would have high residual valve post racing. Lot 450  -  Filly by Mr Feelgood from the Christian Cullen mare Tori Maguire 1:57 ($57,870) The first foal of a smart Christian Cullen mare in Tori France who is a full sister to a champion two and three year old filly in Lizzie Maguire 1:56.5 ($477,366). Christian Cullen is the leading pacing broodmare sire in New Zealand at the moment and for the foreseeable future. A colt by Mach Three from Unrehearsed making him a half brother to Tori Maguire made $40,000 at the recent Australasian Classic yearling sale at Karaka in Auckland. The family is seen as a rich source of  juveniles in New Zealand and has been selling well at the yearling sales for the last 15 years. Lot 431  - Filly by Lanercost from the Bettor's Delight mare in Manhattan Montana 1:57.6 The first foal from a 1:57.6 Bettor's Delight half sister to nine winners including such top liners as Village Hero 1:50.6 ($306,475) and He's My Hero 1:54.3 ($222,293), this is a family that is highly sought after in New Zealand as as can be seen from the latest yearling sales there Two Bettor's Delights colts from Christian Cullen half sisters to Manhattan Montana were sold at the Australasian Classic Sale at Karaka for $80,000 and $60,000 respectively The two Bettor's Delight colts in question are three quarter brothers in blood to Manhattan Montana. At the New Zealand Premier Sale at Christchurch, a Washington VC half brother to Manhattan Montana made $45,000. Now both the fillies we have highlighted are by young sires  who still have to prove themselves at the highest level but the maternal families are so strong in our view that we wouldn't hesitate adding those two to a broodmare band when they are finished racing. There are numerous other lots for sale at Brisbane on Sunday that are just as well bred in our view and are from families that are in hot demand on both sides of the Tasman. In a lot of ways, the fillies are becoming a better financial investment than the colts these days. Harnesslink Media 

Winter harness racing action ramped up Friday night at Woodbine Racetrack with round one of The Count B and Ontario Girls Series. Each series featured a pair of divisions for their opening leg. A group of 14 sophomore pacing colts and geldings were split into two $17,000 The Count B divisions, while 15 Ontario sired four-year-old pacing mares competed in two $18,000 Ontario Girls splits. The Count B Series for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings saw the first split go to a newcomer north of the border. War N Munn went gate to wire for a 1:54.1 victory. The son of Stonebridge Regal shipped in from the Kerin Warner barn into the care of trainer Carmen Auciello. Driven by Jonathan Drury, War N Munn fired out to the front and got to dictate the pace. After posting panels of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:25.2, War N Munn opened up several lengths of separation and cruised home in :28.4 for a 6¾ lengths victory. St Lads Charger, who sat fourth for the majority of the mile, finished second, while New Standard came from last to finish third. War N Munn is owned by George Munniksma. The sophomore pacer was making his 2016 debut after winning two of nine starts as a rookie for earnings of $43,011. War N Munn established a new career mark with his 1:54.1 victory. He paid $10.10 to win. War N Munn The combination of Drury and Auciello appeared to have a good shot to sweep The Count B first leg, as they teamed up with the 3/5 favourite Big Bang Boom in the second split. Drury stepped on the accelerator at the start and blasted Big Bang Boom to the lead.

Pompano Beach, FL.January 31, 2016 - Arthur Blue Chip, driven byharness racing driver Wally Hennessey, led every step of his mile, wiring together halves of :55.3 and :54.3, to win the enriched $15,000 Open Handicap Pace at Pompano Park on Sunday night in 1:50.1. Four Socks, handled by John Cummings, Jr., finished second, one length away, while Johnny Grippa, with Dave Ingraham in the bike, finished third. Rock On Moe was fourth while Brees Creek picked up the nickel in the field of seven. In a confident move, Hennessey sent Arthur Blue Chip winging out of the gate, putting Johnny Grippa in the garden spot with Four Socks, longest shot in the field at nearly 40 to 1. With an opening quarter in :27.1, Arthur Blue Chip strolled over to the half in :55.3 with a :27.2 third panel thwarting any developing threats. In the lane, Johnny Grippa angled out and Arthur Blue Chip drifted out a tad allowing Four Socks clear sailing along the pylons into second but the outcome was never in doubt. In a post-race interview, Hennessey related, "Doc Moore (trainer and co-owner Dr. Ian Moore) has him razor sharp-I mean razor sharp. Out in :27.1 and home in :27.1, why I hardly even spoke to him during the mile. "And this group was no pushover, either, with a few of 'em owning sub-1:50 marks. "I wanted to put my horse on the front end because I know how much Dave's (Ingraham) horse likes the front end and didn't want to give him a chance to get away with soft fractions, especially having confidence that my horse could go a good mile tonight." Dr. Ian Moore shares ownership in Arthur Blue Chip with R G McGroup and Serge Savard, with their five year-old son of Shadow Play equaling his lifetime best mile with the win-his second of the year in four starts and 12th lifetime in only 29 starts. The victory, incidentally vaulted Arthur Blue Chip's lifetime bounty over the $500,000--$503,742 to be precise. As the 1 to 5 tote-board favorite, Arthur Blue Chip paid $2.40 to his multitude of backers. Bandolito lit up the tele-timer in the $11,000 Open 3 Pace with a near wire-to-wire win for George Napolitano, Jr. in 1:49.4, this after scorching panels of :26, :53.1 and 1:20.3 along the way. Next Thing Smoke'n closed fast to finished second for Rick Plano while Maddysonofagun finished third with John MacDonald in the bike. Danishdujour finished fourth while Southern Winds picked up the minor award in the octet. Bandolito, a six year-old son of Ponder owned and trained by Jenny Bier, won for the 25th time during his splendid career to send his lifetime bounty to $434,535 to go along with a splendid mark of 1:48. As the overwhelming 1 to 5 tote-board favorite, Bandolito paid a $2.60 dividend to his many investors. After the race, the soft spoken Napolitano simply said, "He was on his game tonight!" The $12,000 Open 2 Pace went to Northern Companion, with Dave Ingraham in the bike, in 1:51.4 Trained by Howard Klohr for owner Dorothy Zarza, Northern Companion was dead last in his octet around the final turn but swept up widest of all on the strength to a :27.3 final panel to nail the win in the final stride-the official margin being a head. Whogoesfirst, driven by Wally Hennessey, finished second in the photo while Martial Bliss finished third for Aaron Byron, three-parts-of-a-length away. Teranadawn finished fourth while pacesetting Danger Hi Joltage finished fifth. In this action packed mile, there were several lead changes with Whogoesfirst away quickest of all and taking the field through an opening panel of :26.3 before yielding to Danger Hi Joltage, escorting the field half way through in :56.1. On the backside, Heart Felt rushed up from fifth to stick his nose in front past the third station in 1:23.1 with Danger Hi Joltage fighting to reclaim the top spot turning for home before Whogoesfirst rallied to stick his head in front in deep stretch, only to be nailed by Northern Companion on the wire. For Northern Companion, an eight year-old altered son of Cambest, it was his 46th lifetime win-38 of those at Pompano Park-with his career earnings edging closer to $300,000--$297,282 to be exact. Off at 10 to 1, Northern Companion paid $23.00-only the fourth time he's been double-digit odd in winning. In the popular "Over The Hill Gang" Series, featuring nine year-olds and up, a field of seven with combined earnings of well over $2 million and 236 lifetime wins went post-ward and it was the 11 year-old Zorgwijk Impact, driven by George Napolitano, Jr. for owner-trainer Jack Sheehan, home first in a lifetime equaling best effort of 1:54.2. Leading at every pole through panels of :28.2, :58 and 1:26.1, Zorgwijk Impact, a son of Armbro Ricochet, strolled home lengthening his margin to 7½ lengths at the wire over On The Tab (Wally Hennessey) with I'll Tell You What third. Go Jesse Go was fourth over Mad Cow Lisa, picking up the final award in thee septet. Zorgwijk Impact now has 43 lifetime wins in his career stretching 272 starts, good for earnings of $350,409.

YONKERS, NY, Friday, January 29, 2016 - Locally-debuting Tessa Seelster with harness racing driver George Brennan at the controls overcame one eight-hole and seven elders Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $32,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap Pace. It turned out to be an outside-assigned, two-speed number, as "Tessa" and Inittowinafortune (Jordan Stratton) both left around a dormant Regil Elektra (Brian Sears). It was Tessa Seelster making the lead well before a :27.3 quarter-mile. From there, she finished off her rounds  :57, 1:24.4, 1:53.2...plus an elongated inquiry regarding a possible cutting-the-cones violation). Inittowinafortune took her shot in the lane, but missed a head, with slight 2-1 favorite Rockn' Ruby N (Dan Dube), Regil Elektra and Dune in Red (Mark MacDonald) settling for the remainder. For third choice Tessa Seelster, a 4-year-old daughter of Shadow Play co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi and Jonathan Newman, she's now 3-for-3 this season. The exacta paid $200, with the triple returning $1,392. The former Ontario standout was a six-figure purchase before this season by her new connections. The Raceway's live season continues Saturday night, with a dozen races and a first post of 7:10 PM. Frank Drucker

Pompano Beach, FL...January 24, 2016...The weather was, indeed, chilly in South Florida on Sunday night-50o-but harness racing driver George Napolitano, Jr. continued his hot hand at Pompano Park by scoring his 7,500th career victory in the $10,000 claiming ($30,000) pace with Danger Hi Joltage. Trained by Chris Oakes for owner Susan Oakes, the seven year-old gelded son of Village Jolt scored a handy win measuring two lengths in 1:52.1-his second straight victory after being claimed for $20,000 two weeks ago. KR's Power Surge (Dave Ingraham) finished second while King Royalty (Matt Romano) was third over Danish Dujour and Thebestofjoel. Don't Tell Rusty, prominent around the opening turn, made a miscue to lose all chance. The win, carded off fractions of :26.4, :56.1 and 1:24.1 was the 34th lifetime for Danger Hi Joltage, sending his career bankroll to $193,191. After the event, a reflective George Napolitano, Jr. said, "You know, it's pretty neat to get my 7,500th win here because here at Pompano Park is where I started. "I got my first qualifying win here back in late 1992 and my first pari-mutuel win here in 1993. I am so thankful for the opportunity I have been given. "I guess I'm not one for saying I've been blessed too much but, really, I have been blessed that owners and trainers have recognized my ability and I am thankful for that." Though Napolitano has been in the business for almost 25 years, more than 4,000 of his wins have come just since 2010. There were a multitude of Napolitano faithful in that event who also celebrated as they were rewarded with a $4.20 win mutual. Meanwhile, Pompano Park's main event-the $13,000 Open Pace-went to the favored Arthur Blue Chip, driven by Hall of Fame driver Wally Hennessey, himself the author of over 8,900 career wins. Arthur Blue Chip, the five year-old son of Shadow Play, eked out a narrow photo finish victory in 1:51.3 over Johnny Grippa (Dan Clements) with Lyons Johnny (Mike Micallef) third, a length away, in a separate photo over Bandolito, the latter cutting panels of :27, :55.4 and 1:23.1. Invader Brees Creek rallied for the nickel in his Pompano Park debut. At the outset, Johnny Grippa and Bandolito were quickest out of the gate with Arthur Blue also showing early speed to land a comfortable spot in third. Positions remained that way until midway on the backstretch when Arthur Blue Chip pulled and went gnawing after Bandolito's lead, reaching alongside turning for home and edging clear only to be threatened by Johnny Grippa, finding clear sailing along the pylons late to just miss by a neck. In a post-race interview, driver Hennessey said, "Doc Moore (Trainer Ian Moore) has done a fantastic job with this horse. He's lightly raced, made a lot of money at two and then had a situation where he had to be nursed back to health and missed the better part of two seasons. "Now that he's back, he's as tough as ever. First up trips don't bother him one bit. He seems to know that 'it's time to go to work' when he goes first up. "He went a great mile tonight-but that's not surprising for him." In making only his 28th lifetime start, Arthur Blue Chip, owned by Moore along with the R G McGroup and Serge Savard, posted his 11th career victory sending his bounty to $496,242. Off as the 1 to 5 tote-board choice, Arthur Blue Chip paid $2.40 to win. In the $9,000 claiming ($20,000) pace, George Napolitano, Jr. picked up lifetime win number 7,501 as he guided the 2 to 5 favorite, Mr. Massimo, to a handy gate-to-wire win in 1:52.1 over Grande Seelster (Wally Hennessey) and Trevor Win For Us (Tom Jackson) with All Steinem fourth and Glammit fifth in the quintet. Mr Massimo, a 10 year-old son of Astreos trained by Chris Oakes for owner Kathleen Febbraro-Napolitano, won for the 29th time in his career stretching 118 starts with a lifetime bankroll of $444,901. As the 2 to 5 public choice, Mr. Massimo paid a $2.80 dividend to his many $2 investors. Finally, in the "Over The Hill Gang" trot for nine year-olds and up, Celtic Merchant, the senior citizen of the group at 13 years-old, scored a repeat win for Rick Plano, this one is 1:57.4. The gelded son of Angus Hall, owned and trained by Steve Oldford, was away, as usual, alertly before being out-brushed early through a :28.4 opener. Shortly thereafter, Celtic Merchant sprinted to the top spot again-this time for good -as he carded panels of :58.3 and 1:27.2 before repelling the late surging Savthelstdancforme (Steve Condren) by half length. On The Tab (Wally Hennessey) rallied for third while Adenium finished fourth in a photo over the favored Mandabra. Celtic Merchant, making only his 14th start over the past two seasons due to injury, now sports a lifetime scorecard of 44-36-24 in 211 starts, good for $351,356. As 5 to 2 second choice, Celtic Merchant paid $7.20. Racing continues Monday night with a kickoff time of 7:30 p.m. by John Berry for Pompano Park

Pompano Beach, FL…December 20, 2015…Pompano Park hosted a trio of harness racing features on Sunday night with Arthur Blue Chip taking top honors in the $11,500 Open Handicap Pace, Dont Tell Rusty annexing the $10,500 event for $30,000 claiming pacers and Trevor Win For Us scoring in the second leg of the Late Closing Powerline Pace. Arthur Blue Chip went a very game first-over journey to post a new lifetime mark of 1:50.1 with Wally Hennessey handling the lines for trainer Dr. Ian Moore, who co-owns with Serge Savard and the R G McGroup Ltd. The four year-old son of Shadow Play made amends for his rare miscue in his Pompano Park debut a week ago to post the 1 ½ length decision over the late charging Bluehourpower, driven by Ricky Macomber, Jr., with Alexa’s Jackpot, teaming up with John MacDonald for show honors. Caddillac Phil finished fourth while KR’s Power Surge picked up the minor award in a field scratched down to six. At the outset, the trio of Alexa’s Jackpot, Cadillac Phil and Arthur Blue Chip were all vying for the lead with Next Thing Smoke’n also in the mix with Hennessey deciding to stay out of the early war and find a spot in fourth ahead of Bluehourpower. With Alexa’s Jackpot and Cadillac Phil trading punches early, it was the former leading at the :26.3 quarter for a few strides before Cadillac Phil took over, only to relinquish the lead again to Alexa’s Jackpot past the half in :54.2. Once the dust settled there, Arthur Blue Chip left his cozy pocket in fourth and trudged up first over, reaching the saddle pad of the leader past three quarters in 1:22.2. From there, Arthur Blue Chip forged to the front and easily held off Bluehourpower, in turn, a neck better than Alexa’s Jackpot and a neck and a nose better than Cadillac Phil. After the event, driver Hennessey said, “You know, he’s a very good one. He had been tackling some of the tigers in recent races up north like Always B Miki and Foiled Again. He made that break leaving last week but was smooth as silk tonight. “I left a bit with him tonight but it was pretty hectic up front so I decided to stay out of that fray and take that seat in fourth. You know, when we are out there on the track, we have to make decisions. Some are right and some are not so right. I was fortunate to make the right one here. He’s quite a horse and he proved it this night.” The win was the fourth of the year for Arthur Blue Chip in 14 starts, good for bounty of $92,705 this season and $483,617 lifetime. As the 6 to 5 second choice on the board, Arthur Blue Chip paid $4.60 to win. The $10,000 pace featuring a $30,000 claiming tag for all entrants went to Dont Tell Rusty, handled by Ed Hensley in 1:51.4. The six year-old son of Tell All, trained by Paul Holzman for owner Melvin Fink, won by a half-length over the late charging Johnny Grippa (Kevin Wallis) with Thebestofjoel (Tim Maier) third. King Royalty finished fourth while Dabestleaderever finished fifth to claim the minors in the field of nine. Don’t Tell Rusty was on the engine from the get-go from post eight, grabbing the lead after a hard fought opening quarter in :27. Once on top, though, there was no breather during the next quarter with “Rusty” taking the field through a demanding half in :54.3. On the backside, only mild threats developed as King Royalty made a first over bid but never getting by Thebestofjoel turning for home. In the lane, Don’t Tell Rusty, though drifting out a lane or two, held off the late surge on the inside by Johnny Grippa to prevail. Don’t Tell Rusty, having his best season ever career-wise, posted his 12th success of the year to push his seasonal bounty to $91,690. He’s banked $183,051 lifetime. As the 3 to 5 favorite on the tote-board, Don’t Tell Rusty rewarded his backers with a $3.20 mutuel. The second leg of the Powerline Pace for claiming horses and geldings went to Trevor Win For Us, handled by Rick Plano, in a photo over Oh My Joepa (Aaron Byron) with Aloneinspades (Kevin Wallis) third. Maddyssonofagun was fourth while Dirty Devil picked up the nickel in the sextet. When the Hummer wings folded, Oh My Joepa was urged to the front with Aloneinspades to his inside and Trevor Win For Us using his inside post to close the gap to get the garden journey. After a pair of :28 quarters, Lyons Josephjnr, the favorite, launched his bid but came up empty this night as Oh My Joepa reached station number three in 1:25. Right then, Trevor Win For Us left the pocket and engaged Oh My Joepa in a stretch long battle, prevailing by a neck at the wire in 1:53.1. After the event, driver Plano kidded, “The drive made all the difference in the world tonight! “Actually, the luck of the draw was on our side because, once we closed the hole, we got just a perfect trip back of Byron (Oh My Joepa). Once we left the pocket, it was tooth and nail all the way down the lane. Neither of us really gave an inch and it could have gone either way. OK, the driver AND the draw won it for us—along with the talent of the horse, of course!” Trained by Jake Huff for his wife and owner Rosie Huff, Trevor Win For Us, a recent addition to the stable, won for the third time in 2015, sending his seasonal bounty to $40,700. The eight year-old of Cheyenne Rei now has amassed $222,244 in lifetime bounty to go along with his 1:50.1 mark. As third choice in the win pool, Trevor Win For Us paid $12.60 to his faithful. Racing continues Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday on this holiday week with post time at 7:30 on Monday and Tuesday and 7:00 on Wednesday when the track offers 14 pre-holiday races. by John Berry for Pompano Park

YONKERS, NY, Friday, December 11, 2015-- Skippin' By (Matt Kakaley, $7.20) ducked in and went by Friday night, winning Yonkers Raceway's $20,000 high-conditioned filly and mare pacing feature. Skippin' By, a gapping third from post position No. 2, saw 17-10 favorite, pole-sitter Jonsie Jones (Tyler Buter) two-move to lead around Regil Elektra (Brian Sears). The former footprinted early intervals of :27.3 and :57 before Al Raza N (Eric Carlson) took out of fourth, just in front of Apricot Sour (Dan Dube). Al Raza N engaged Jonsie Jones at the 1:24.4 three-quarters before dismissing her early in the lane. The leader was done, but Regil Elektra then angled outsider of her. That left the pylons for a resurgent Skippin' By, who had closed ranks before edging past. The margin over Regil Elektra was a half-length in 1:52.4. Al Raza N, All About Kisses (Mark MacDonald) and For the Ladies N (Jordan Stratton) rounded out the payees. For second choice Skippin' By, a 4-year-old Shadow Play miss co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Wall Brothers Stable and Bruce Soulsby, it was her sixth win in 27 seasonal starts.
