Steve Oldford of Croswell, MI, has been named the United States Harness Writers Association (USHWA)  2013 harness racing Amateur Driver of the Year and it is hard to come up with a more stellar list of accomplishments than those Steve has achieved this year. He is this year's Billings overall point champion as well as the points champ in the Billings mid-west region and a winner of one of the Billings Series Finals. Besides his prowess this year in the Billings Series--the granddaddy of all amateur clubs-Oldford is a member of many other amateur driving clubs and he has won at least one race in the Great Lakes Club (GLADA), the Florida Club, the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA), and the Catskill Club(CADC). He also was a division winner of the Hambletonian Amateur Trots and he organized the amateur driving portion of the USTA Driving School which was held in and around Goshen, NY this past summer. Few, if any, are more enthusiastic about amateur racing than Oldford and when told he was named USHWA's Amateur Driver of the Year he said happily; "It's (amateur racing) a lot of fun and I'll go anywhere to drive a harness horse. "I've had my best year in the Billings this season winning 11 races in the series and I now have 19 wins this year. I'd love to get to 20 and I have a chance next week when I drive against professionals in at Sports Creek (Raceway) in Michigan." Some might say that Oldford began his amateur driving late in life although he quips; "You're never too old to get involved in such a satisfying endeavor"; hence his Billings nickname of Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford. This year from 83 starts Oldford has 19 wins, 14 seconds and eight thirds for a hefty .355UDR to go along with purse earnings in excess of $64,500. It wasn't until 2006 that he earnestly began serious participation in amateur racing. However, since then Oldford has recorded 83 driving victories and is a force to be reckoned with every time he's on the racetrack. And as a great supporter of amateur racing there have been many times that he has supplied an extra horse that was needed to fill an amateur event. Over the years Steve has been a three time winner of the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame Amateur Driver of the Year Award; Michigan Amateur Driver of the Year; US representative to International amateur driving challenges in Europe and New Zealand; founder and president of GLADA; Vice president of the CKG Billings Harness Driving Series and recently was named a trustee at the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame. He is also active in USTA affairs and is the District Rep in Michigan. Patricia Miller, Board Secretary and publicist for the Great Lakes Amateur Driving Association and fellow Michigander, sums up the essence Steve Oldford. "Steve is a fine person to begin with; a very fair and honest horseman, a fine driver, and fierce competitor of the utmost integrity and for me, this is a vital quality, not just important, but vital." by John Manzi for the United States Harness Writers Association  

With the completion of the final two preliminary legs of this year's North American Amateur Drivers Association's Charity Trotting Series held at Yonkers Raceway on December 12th, the field of drivers is now set for the $12,000 finale to be raced at Yonkers Raceway on December 19. Last night (Dec. 12) previous leg winners, Paul Minore and Dr. John Kokinos, each emerged victorious, Kokinos for the fourth time and Minore for the second. Kokinos, with Jennifer Lappe's Impressive Earl, trotted to the front in their $6,000 split and rebuffed all challenges en route to a 1:59.4 victory over Ipo Blue Chip and driver Steve Oldford. Third place went to Bob Davis up behind Ilari. For Doctor John, a veterinarian by trade, his victory added another 11 points to his totals and he finishes with 59 points and the points championship in the seven- leg, three-track trotting series which began on October 17 at Monticello Raceway. Freehold Raceway was also a participant in the series. In his $6,000 split Paul Minore, a retired high school coach who's most famous pupil was Carl Lewis, took no prisoners and went down the road to score a 1:59.3 victory with his own Wygant Prince. Monica Banca with Leave Your Mark finished a length behind the winner in second place while Bob Hechkoff got Tremendous Hit home for third money. As a results of those races the top eight in series points earned a berth in the $12,000 Final. Behind Kokinos and eligible to start if they choose to enter are; Paul Minore (40 points), Monica Banca (34), Bob Davis (24), Dave Offenberg (23), Bob Krivelin , Bob Hechkoff, and Dave Yarock, each with 21 points. If any of the aforementioned don't enter it opens up for those next in line in points totals which includes; Tony Verruso (18), Gerry Fielding (17), Steve Oldford, ( 13), Kelly Walker 12 and Alan Schwartz (11). When the series finale is completed, Joe Faraldo, the president of the North American Amateur Drivers Association, will again make a substantial donation from the organization to a worthwhile charity soon to be announced.

Pompano Beach, FL…November 17, 2013…Red Hot Yankee, an invader from Indiana owned, trained and driven by Ed Hensley, made his first appearance at Pompano Park a winning one when he captured the $10,000 Open 1 Pace on Saturday night. The nine year-old son of Artsplace snuck through along the pylons at mid-stretch to, first, get by the leading Special Strides (Rick Plano) and, then, held off the ferocious close of the even money favorite, Lyons Johnny (Wally Hennessey), to win by a half length in 1:51.3. No Monkeys Allowed (Kevin Wallis) closed from the back of the pack to finish third while B N Bad finished fourth after a first-over bid around the final turn. Special Strides picked up the "nickel" in the field of six after carving up panels of :27, :55.1 and 1:23. In a post race interview, driver Hensley said, "This horse seems to live up to his name--he's 'red hot' all time. He loves to race on the front end but Rick's horse (Special Strides) left right out from the outside and he had the upper hand, angle wise, to get to the top. Was my horse relaxed? Not on your life. He was hot racing in the two hole the whole way, never relaxed and, when we found some room mid-stretch, we just were able to get through." For Red Hot Yankee, it was his seventh win of the year in 22 starts and sent his yearly bankroll to $53,628. Pompano Park also hosted the C. K. G. Billings Trot, featuring many of the leading drivers on that amateur circuit. At the conclusion of that 1:58.4 mile, it was veteran amateur driver Dein Spriggs in the winner's circle after piloting his own newly acquired Herecomesthechief to a wire-to-wire win measuring 3 3/4 lengths. Claim Jumper (Matt Zuccarello) rallied from far back to finish second while Pacific Cyclone (Paul Suchow) finished third after chasing the winner throughout the mile through fractions of :28, :57.2 and 1:28. Millbrook Millie (Anthony Verruso) rallied from ninth to finish fourth with He's My Man (Steve Oldford) finishing fifth in the field of 10. For Herecomesthechief, a son of Here Comes Herbie trained by Allen Saul for the owner-driver, it was his seventh win of the year in 26 starts. The C. K. G. Billings Amateur Driving Club honors the industrialist who was the principal of the Peoples Gas Light & Coke Company of Chicago when that city was lit, primarily, by gaslight. Mr. Billings retired from the company a multi-millionaire in 1901--age 40--and went on to develop a grand stable of horses, including our sport's very first 2:00 trotter, Lou Dillon. He passed away in 1937 in Santa Barbara, California, where many of the streets in that city are named after his most famous horses. by John Berry for Isle Pompano Park  

The North American Amateur Drivers Association Three-Track Trotting Series moved to Yonkers Raceway on Thursday evening, November 7 and over a racetrack rated good John Kokinos and Jerry Fielding emerged victorious in their respective splits. Kokinos not only held on to the point lead in the series but actually opened up daylight against his competitors when he guided Jennifer Lappe's Impressive Earl to a 2:03.2 victory. And in his first NAADA Trot start Fielding won a decision with Bill Mulligan's Lady Love Hanover in a time of 2:04.2. In his division Kokinos hustled his trotter to the lead and Impressive Earl was just that as the veteran Valley Victory gelding raced in front the entire way. Steve Oldford made a run at the leader nearing the halfway point with Habanero but they couldn't reach and by the final turn Impressive Earl trotted away and scored a two length triumph over Oldford's mount. Third place went to George's Vacation, driven by last year's National Amateur Driver of the Year, Bobby Krivelin. Fielding employed the same strategy with his victory when he sent Lady Love Hanover to the lead on the first turn and then played catch me if you can. Although there were challenges from Tremendous Hit (Bob Hechkoff) and Rodeo Red (Tony Berruso), Fielding and his trotting mare remained undaunted and they had two lengths on the field at the top of the lane. However, Lady Love Hanover tired a bit in the deep stretch and Monica Banca and Hardrockenjessica came from far back with a rush and darn near won it all, only falling short by a head at the finish. Verruso's Rodeo Red was third best some two lengths off the winner. Kokinos, with 30 points, is the series leader, followed by Banca (18) and Bob Davis (16).Fielding , Paul Minore, and Dave Yarock follow, each with 10 points. Alan Schwartz (9) and Bobby Krivelin (8) round out the top 8. The series moves on to Freehold Raceway on Friday afternoon, November 15. John Manzi

Steve “You’re Never Too” Oldford added another driving victory in this year’s CKG Billings Harness Driving  Series when he won with his own Garbarino in a time of 2:04.4 at the  Fairfield County Fair in Lancaster, Ohio on Thursday afternoon, October 10.  It was Oldford’s ninth Billings victory in 2013 and 16th overall this season. It was also the third consecutive  win by Garbarino in Billings competition. “He certainly has been good in his last few starts,” Oldford said referring to Garbarino.  “We didn’t qualify him this year until mid-May and his first start wasn’t until early June and although he appeared that he would have a good 4-year-old season  he came along slowly and really didn’t get good until the late summer.” At Lancaster , Ohio on Thursday afternoon, Garbarino certainly had his trotting shoes on again. He started from the four-hole and at the  first quarter  he had three lengths on the field. From there no one could even get close to the trotter as Oldford kept daylight between himself and the others. At the third stanza  Garbarino still had a three-length lead which was opened to five lengths as the field came off the final turn. In the lane  Garbarino kept pouring it on and at the wire Oldford’s trotter was eight- length winner over Lifelong Hanover and driver “Chicago George” Bonomo. Littlebitofhoney finished third for Dave “Linemaster” Ehrenberg II. Although Grabarino, a 4-year-old altered son of Angus Hall, came into the contest off three consecutive victories he still was sent off at odds of 5-1 and returned a $12.60 win payoff. The next Billings action will be a pair of trots at Saratoga Raceway on Columbus Day, Monday, October 14. by John Manzi for the Billings  

This past weekend  a contingent of  Billings amateur  drivers made their annual trek to Prince Edward Island  in the Canadian Maritimes to compete  at  Charlottetown Driving Park  on Saturday, (Sept 7)  and at Summerside Raceway on Sunday. Two races were afforded the visitors at both venues. At Charlottetown Driving Park on Saturday (Sept. 7),  “Joltin’ Joe” Pennacchio and Steve “You’re Never Too” Oldford emerged victorious  and the following day at Summerside Raceway, Kelly “Sky” Walker and   “Racin’ Jason” Sgrignouli  finished in a dead heat for win in their split  while Sherwin ”Smiley” Edwards scored  a victory in the other Billings contest. Pennacchio, fresh off a driving victory Friday at Monticello Raceway on All Amateur Day, wasted little time sending his pacer, Caughtfoolinaround , to the lead from the five hole and  they had command after a :29.1 first quarter. Pennacchio kept the medal to the metal and  in doing so  no one got close to his pacer. At the third stanza in 1:29.1 they still had two lengths on the field and they cruised home an easy winner over Miramonttogo and  “Tiny Todd” Walsh in a 1:58.4 clocking.  “Big Thane” Arsenault was third best with PH Littlecam. Sent off the favorite Caughtfoolinaround, owned by Maggie McCarthy, paid $5.10 for win. In the second event Steve Oldford’s Dreaming got caught on the limb but it didn’t seem to  matter, when Oldford pulled the pacer three- deep on the final turn they finally cleared and drew off the a two length  triumph in 1:59.2. Sherwin “Smiley” Edwards, cut the mile with Muzzy Mud Puddle but had to settle for second when Oldford and his charge blew  by them in the lane. “Racin’ Jason” Sgrignuoli, who was parked with Fitelle, which gave Oldford’s pacer cover while on the limb, tired and finished third. Owned by Norman Meyers and Jason  Dreaming paid $10.30 for win The next day at Summerside Raceway, the same eight drivers competed  but with different results. The first split saw  “Sky” Walker  and Smart Barney rally late to finish simultaneously with Carsimir Lucian with  Jason  Sgrignuoli at the controls. The dead-heat victory marked the first one this season in Billings competition. Third place  went to Ultimate Success driven by “Mighty Matt” Zuccarello. After Steve Oldford led his peers  to the top of the lane with Woodmere Rose ,” Smiley” Edwards, whop had been biding his time, made a  move on the final turn and rallied OK Chivas to a length victory over Oldford’s pacer. Third place went to  Elm Grove Future with Joe Pennacchio aboard. In spite of driving pacers, which really doesn’t matter to the Battlin’ Billings Boys, the PEI trip is always a big favorite with them. “We love coming here  not only  because they to go out of their way to make us comfortable  but they treat us like royalty,”  said Steve Oldford.  “When we’re here it seems like they can’t do enough for us.” by John Manzi                 

Monticello Raceway presented its third annual All-Amateur Day on September 6 with all the participating drivers on the 10 race card carring amateur status. But by no means were they novices. And to say it was a success would be an understatement. Nineteen of the country’s top amateurs came from far and wide and convened at the Mighty M just to participate in what was billed a special “Veterans Day at the Races’. Each participating amateur driver paid $500 to be part of the day and monies were raised for the Sullivan County Veteran’s Food Pantry. Attending fans were asked to donate non-perishable goods and clothing for the less fortunate and at day’s end a pick-up truck was needed bring the goods to the Federation for the Homeless, of which the Veteran’s Food Pantry is a component. Co-sponsored by the North America Amateur Drivers Association and Monticello Raceway nearly $10,000 was raised along with the food and clothing. It turned out to be a day enjoyed by everyone who shared in the festivities. Every race presentation was done by a armed forces veteran and visiting veterans were afforded 50 percent off the dinner in the casino’s Winners Circle Buffet and over $420,000 was wagered on the 10-race card on the added race date to just accommodate the all-amateur program. “It’s getting bigger each year,” noted Alan Schwartz, a former Marine Corporal and Vietnam veteran, who is also the president of the Monticello Harness Horsemen’s Association. “It has taken a while but officials and racing fans alike are beginning to realize and understand what amateur racing brings a lot to the game. Nearly every amateur driver owns horses, employs a trainer, and continually invests in the sport. And over the years the betting public is cognizant of their drivers talents and considering the wagering numbers today most enjoy betting on the amateur races.” On the 10- race card three different amateur drivers each won two races. Dein Spriggs, a real estate magnate who traveled infrom Jupiter Fla. just to participate, scored a seven- length triumph with Beal Hanover in time of 1:58.1 and he also won with Multiple Cash in 1:58.4. Dr. Scott Woogen, a gastroenterologist up from Richmond VA., also had a driving double. He won with Windsmith Molly in 2:01.1 and with Paulimony in 1:59, two pacers he co-owns with Brenda Messenger, the wife of his trainer Gary Messenger. And Dave Yarock, a financial planner from Tenafly, NJ, scored two driving victories on the program when he won with his own Bambina’s Sorella in 1:59.4 and with Game Jocko in 1:58.1. Spriggs now has 375 career wins, Woogen has 119 amateur driving victories and Dave Yarock, who entered the amateur ranks in 2008, has 42 wins. Other amateurs with driving victories that day included; Steve Oldford, an automotive manufacturer’s rep from Croswell, MI; Joe Pennacchio, a retired business executive from Delray Beach, Fla.; Kelly Walker, a nursery owner from Davison, MI; and George Bonomo, a CEO from greater Chicago,(Naperville) Ill. Besides the 10 pari-mutuel races fans were treated to a trotting race under saddle, which is beginning to be more than just a sideshow in the industry. And that nearly all of the participating riders are female it adds another dimension to the sport. That non-wager contest was won by Michelle Crawford when she rode Vassar Hall to a 2:08.3 victory over John-Michael and Jodie Doherty. Third place went to Docdor Chaser with Ruth Calcagni aboard.   by John Manzi  

For amateur drivers, save Mal "Malabar Man" Burroughs and Bobby "Rapid Rail" Krivelin, a chance to race at the Meadowlands is arguably a highlight in their careers . On August 2 two races for amateur drivers , the overwhelming majority in the Billings Series, went to post and when the dust had settled Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford and Mike "the Mortgage Man" Mitchell were victorious in their respective divisions. Although both races were carded as Hambletonian Amateur Drivers all the participants were members of the C.K.G Billings Driving Series. One trot went non-betting and the other was the third race on the betting card and although all drivers were Billings members four of the horses in the betting race did not fit the Billings conditions thus their drivers couldn't earn any points in the series. "Just to drive over the famed mile oval is joyful enough," said Kelly "Sky" Walker who finished second in the betting race with Rush and Supreme, who didn't fit Billings conditions. "Points or no points it's still fun driving at the Meadowlands." "The Michigan Men prevailed," Oldford said after Walker completed his comment."And the Sisco Stable won both races ." Oldford, an automotive Manufacturers rep from Croswell, MI whose stock is handled by Allen Sisco, scored wire to wire with his own Celtic Merchant in a 1:57.1 clocking holding off a stubborn Wygant Prince, and driver "Coach Paul" Minore in the non-wagering contest. The betting race saw Mitchell, a mortgage broker from Burton MI guide his trotter, B L Class Act, to head victory over "Sky" Walker and Rush N Supreme in a 1:57 clocked mile. Mitchell also uses the services of professional trainer Allen Sisco,, In his contest Oldford went down the pike with Celtic Merchant trotting fractions of :28.1' :57.4, and 1:27.4 despite being challenged by Alan "the Intimidator" Schwartz with Get Chipped. When Schwartz's trotter faded nearing the third stanza Minore took up chase with Wygant Prince and they battled Celtic Merchant to the wire but they had to settle for second money as Oldford's trotter kept them at bay. Gerry "the Catskill Cat" Fielding and Dream Kid had a cover trip and they trotted by Get Chipped in the lane to earn the show dough. Get Chipped finished fourth. For Oldford, the VP of the Billings Series, it was his seventh win this year and the 71st of his amateur driving career. In the other split Mitchell's trotter went a big trip from the eight- hole. After settling down in third place on the first turn as the field the field moved toward the halfway point Mitchell, sensing a slow pace and not wanting to get locked in by the second tier horses in the 10-horse race, moved his trotter to the outside and they made the front before then three quarters. From there it was a battle with "Sky" Walker's Rush N Supreme through the long homestretch and although it took a photo to determine the winner BL Class Act had scored a head triumph over former Billings Gold Cup winner, Rush N Supreme and his driver KellyWalker Third place went to Thehouseisrockin driven by Bob "the Headhunter" Hechkoff. Sent off at odds of over 5-1 BL Class Act, owned by Mitchell, won his fourth seasonal race and returned a $12.60 win mutuel. It was also the fourth season driving victory for "the Mortgage Man" who now has reined 34 winners in his amateur career. The majority of the horses entered in the amateur races here at the Meadowlands, and for that matter at most venues, are owned by their drivers which in itself is a good result of amateur racing. Amateur racing supports the industry because amateur drivers buy horses and nearly all hire professional trainers," Oldford added. by John Manzi  

The C.K.G Billings Harness Driving Series may have gotten underway a bit later than usual this season but now the lengthy series for amateur drivers is in full swing attested by the fact that there were six races at three different racetracks this past weekend.

Amateur harness racing produces strange bedfellows. Take Steve Oldford for instance. The manufacturer's rep from Crosswell, Michigan had one of his trotters entered in the first leg of the North American Amateur Drivers Association's Charity Trotting Series at Monticello Raceway on Thursday afternoon, February 21.

What is sometimes referred to as "the Grand Circuit of Amateur Racing" the C.K.G. Billings Harness Racing Driving Championship Series rolls on during its 31st season.

On Monday afternoon July 23 the C.K.G. Billings Harness Racing Driving Championship Series made a stop at the Fowlerville, Michigan Fair for a competition in the Midwest Region.

With a near capacity harness racing crowd and the temperatures hovering around 95-degrees three divisions of the C.K.G. Billings Harness Driving Championship Series went to post at the Cradle Of the Trotter in Goshen, NY on June 30th and when they were declared official, Rob "the Rapid Rail" Krivelin, Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford and "Battlin'Brad" Rathbone each walked away with a victory in their respective divisions.

The Billings Battlers have been in New England this weekend; at Bangor Raceway on Friday and Scarborough Downs on Sunday. The harness racing trip wraps up on Monday at Plainridge Racecourse.
