Upfront Secret (The Panderosa-Sweet Reflection) rallied in the stretch to get a harness racing victory in the $6,500 feature race at Vernon Downs on Friday night.   Upfront Secret (Truman Gale) was apparently in a tough game of catch-up as Kylers Valentine (Rick Plano) rallied to a four-length lead at the top of the stretch, but as the race continued Kylers Valentine appeared to tire slightly through the lane. This gave Upfront Secret the opportunity to storm to victory on the outside in a final time of 1:53.3. The favorite, Bad Girl Vegas (Fern Paquet Jr.), finished third after her attempt to catch the leader fell a bit short. Upfront Secret is owned by Ross Bonafield of West Edmeston, New York and trained by Robert Gale.   The complete order of finish was: Upfront Secret, Kylers Valentine, Bad Girl Vegas, Got The Munchies, Table Games, Sweet Bettor, Mighty Nice, and That's My Dream.   Friday night was also the first leg of the Racing Under Saddle Series at Vernon Downs.   The five-horse field competed in a non-wagering exhibition race and the easy winner was Tymal Oh So Nice (Striking Sahbra-Tymal Abracadabra). Tymal Oh So Nice (Heather Reese) took the lead immediately after the starting gate opened and was never really challenged throughout the remainder of the race, winning handily in 2:02.4. It certainly appears that Tymal Oh So Nice is comfortable under saddle. He had also shown good form in a Racing Under Saddle Qualifier on July 1, winning by seven lengths and covering the distance that day in 2:00.3.   Tymal Oh So Nice is owned by Ronald MacDonald of Russell, Ontario, Canada and Valerie Blackmore of Barrie, Ontario, Canada. Ronald MacDonald is also the trainer. Sundowner Bob broke stride at the start and never got back trotting, so while he finished second, he ended being placed fifth for being off-stride throughout the event.   The complete order of finish for the first leg of the Racing Under Saddle Series was: Tymal Oh So Nice, Vassar Hall, Armbro Doyle, My Irish Molly, and Sundowner Bob. The second leg of the Racing Under Saddle Series at Vernon Downs will take place on August 16, with the Final coming on August 29.   Live racing at Vernon Downs will resume on Saturday night with a first post time of 6:45pm. The featured event on the 9-race program is the 8th race, a $10,000 Open I Trot, with My Revenuer set as the 2-1 morning line favorite.   by Michael Chamberlain, Vernon Downs Publicity

WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 11, 2014 -- In Tuesday's $18,000 Preferred Trot at the Meadows, No Doze unleashed a powerful first-over bid that carried him to a 10-1 upset victory. No Doze was sitting third for Brett Miller near the three-quarters when he set sail after the leader, Run And Tell Pap. He gobbled that one up and held off the Lightning Lane charge of Three Crow Mo to defeat him by a neck in 1:55.1. TSM Photo Bugger rallied for show. Miles Wollam trains No Doze, an 8-year-old Striking Sahbra-Annandale gelding who now boasts $325,860 in career earnings, and owns with Renna Wollam. Aaron Merriman drove three winners on the 15-race card. Wednesday's Pick 5 at The Meadows will feature a rich Pick 5 pool sweetened by a four-day carryover of $24,762.37. Spanning races 11-15, Wednesday's Pick 5 promises to be a tough challenge for players, as it includes four highly competitive trotting events. The Pick 5 at The Meadows offers a minimum wager of 50 cents, although by law in Pennsylvania, the minimum total wager is $2. A consolation is paid if no ticket correctly picks all five winners. First post is 12:55 PM, with Race 11 expected to go at about 3:45 PM. by Evan Pattak , for the Meadows              

The trip was sweet and the end result was even sweeter for Kendal Gustav who erupted for a 22-1 upset in Monday’s $11,000 Preferred 2 for pacers at The Raceway at Western Fair District. Lorne House carved out a second over trip for Kendal Gustav in the featured event, and the gelding did the rest en route to an easy score in the eight-horse affair. Kendal Gustav got away fifth before slipping to the outside and grabbing cover for the back-half of the contest. Clic K steamrolled through solid panels of :27.1, :56.4 and 1:26 before coming to a walk by the time the field turned for home. Smokin Bear was first-over and driving at that leader in the final half of the mile, and hot on hisheels was the eventual winner. Kendal Gustav kicked home in :30 en route to winning by 2-1/2 lengths over Rays San in 1:56.2. Smokin Bear managed to hold on for third prize. Trainer Scott McNiven co-owns the five-year-old son of Life Sign-City Of Dreams with Tom Brodhurst and Shirley Griffin, and collectively they’ve watched the gelding racked up 19 lifetime wins while stashing away close to $130,000 in career earnings. Just two races earlier it was Slots Of Fun turning in a front-stepping score in the $7,350 Preferred 3 for horse and gelding pacers. Driver/co-owner Alfie Carroll hustled the six-year-old son of Grinfromeartoear-High Pressure through panels of :28.1, :58.4 and 1:29.2 before sprinting home in :29.3 to win by a half-length margin over Leafs And Wings in 1:59. Stoney Durkin, who was eighth at the head of the lane, came on strong to finish third. Richard Carroll trains the 18-time winner, who is now 2-for-3 this season. He boosted his overall cash stash to $115,223 with the win. Savthelstdancforme captured the $7,000 Preferred 3 for trotters for the second week in-a-row, and he did so with authority for catch-driver Tyler Borth. The eight-year-old son of Striking Sahbra-Iam Worthy Too chopped out fractions of :29.2, 1:00.2 and 1:30 before coasting home in :30.3 to win by three lengths over Windsun Fireball in 2:00.3.
