June 6, 2015 -Harness racing driver Orjan Kihlstrom piloted Chelsea Boko (6m Chocolatier-Kelsea Boko-Joie de Vie) to victory, clocked in 1.13.3kr, in today’s Jamtlands Store Pris (750,000SEK first money, 2140 meters autostart on the five-eighths mile oval at Ostersund, Gr. II International UET Masters Series, 10 starters). The track was sloppy due to very heavy rains. The winner closed from far back to defeat El Mago Pellini (6m Chocolatier-My Intuition-Andover Hall) with Adrian Kolgjini up. Third was US bred and owned Creatine (5m Andover Hall-Berry Nice Muscles-Muscles Yankee) driven by trainer Robert Bergh. Pacesetter Oasis Bi (7m Toss Out-Up Front JM-Self Possessed) was a tired fourth for Bjorn Goop. Cool Keeper was the early leader for Leif Witasp and he yielded quickly to Oasis Bi that made a brush to the lead. Backfire came to call for Christoffer Eriksson and she hung close to the leader in the death seat before tiring badly into the final bend. Cool Keeper tired in the pocket and affected Creatine that raced third on the pegs throughout before making a good late run in the lane. El Mago Pellini raced close to the pace throughout and gained the lead before being run down by fast finishing Chelsea Boko. The pace was steady and modest (first lap in 1.14.2kr). In addition to the one-two finish by sons of Chocolatier, the maternal pedigrees of the top four are of interest to me and reflect classic days of US standardbred racing. Chelsea Boko – second dam Chickadee Hanover (Florida Pro-Chickasaw-Speedy Crown-Somolli) El Mago Pellini – second dam CR Kay Suzie (Royal Troubador-Country Kay Sue-Speedy Somolli-Pam’s Key) Creatine – second dam Blackberry Hanover (Donerail-Brittany’s Dream-Workaholic-Viking Spirit) Oasis Bi – second dam Dalona Brisco (Speedy Crown-Icefolly-Bonefish-Icecapade) Thomas H.

Bathurst’s Gold Crown Carnival has achieved a unique place in the life of the Central West.  This year will see the 28th running of this epic Harness Racing contest for two-year-old potential pacing superstars, and it may see history repeat itself – with a slightly different, and really appealing, twist. When the 1990 Gold Crown was run, and won, in record time by a stunning young horse from New Zealand named “Master Musician”, people wondered about the future that lay ahead for this rising talent.  And superstar Master Musician proved to be:  he went on to win 34 races, approx $1.9m in prizemoney, and the enduring admiration of race fans on both sides of the Tasman. Fast forward to this year’s Gold Crown Carnival, and there is every prospect that we will see an exciting step in the emergence of another “Master of Music” – a rising star with a future that could provide people of all generations with first-class entertainment for years to come.  His name is Jai Waetford, a 14-year-old young Aussie who captured TV audiences in 2013 with a series of spectacular performances in Network Seven’s “The X-Factor Australia” Series, and whose star is clearly destined to lift to new heights. This Saturday evening at the Bathurst Showground Paceway, Jai will give a live performance that promises to take the Gold Crown’s entertainment factor to a new level.  And it is most appropriate that this will be the evening when Australia’s emerging crop of young pacers will also be competing in heats of the 2014 Gold Crown Series, and looking to secure their places in the Final scheduled for 29 March. The Jai Waetford story is compelling – a youngster who was raised by his Mother, Alana, in Sydney’s South-West (his Father resides in Switzerland), and who graduated from an average childhood playing football, tennis and racing motor bikes to a blossoming career in the entertainment world.  His interest in music was triggered by his education at Campbelltown Performing Arts High School, when his talent on the guitar and his extraordinary vocal ability culminated in the decision for Jai to participate, as a schoolboy, in the nationally acclaimed X-Factor Series.  Given the opportunity, Jai really made his mark – he was placed in the top three performers in the Series, was promptly contracted to Sony Music Entertainment Australia, he achieved national success with his debut single “Your Eyes”, and is now preparing for an Australia-wide entertainment tour during April.  It is an astonishing achievement for any 14-year-old; but Jai Waetford isn’t the norm – he is a young Australian blessed with the talent to really entertain people of all ages and backgrounds.  And he is coming to Bathurst.  As local Harness Racing Club Chief, Danny Dwyer, explained “We are always looking for opportunities to lift the Gold Crown entertainment factor, and to send people home with the feeling that their night at the Showground Paceway was really worthwhile”.  “We think Jai will be a massive addition to this year’s Carnival, and we are confident that the blend of his music, his talent and his personality will provide an enormous boost to overall enjoyment on this very special night’s racing.”  From all of us, Jai, welcome to Bathurst; good luck for the future and we hope that you and your Mother will leave with very special recollections of your visit to the Central West.  And for all the young (and not so young) fans, Jai says it is OK to take photo snaps of his performance.

A recently released music video prominently features a harness racing theme, containing footage shot on a breeding farm and starring a current participant along with her retired Standardbred. The video for the song Horseshoe Woman by Caracol was set to be shot at Hippodrome 3R. Carole Facal is the singer-songwriter who professionally performs as Caracol, and she told Trot Insider that she was looking for a horse racing theme to accompany her latest single. "Horseshoe Woman is a song about a man who lost his good fortune. He is looking for the Horseshoe Woman, a symbol of good luck, to bring it back," Facal said via email from Europe. "We had the idea of going to Hippodrome 3R to find female racers to represent that persona. That's where I met Anne-Marie by pure coincidence." Anne-Marie Veilleux, daughter of Standardbred Canada director Richard Veilleux, was working for 3R as the outrider when she was approached to appear in the video. The horse she used as the outrider was retired Standardbred racehorse Wedding Crasher. "They approached me, as I was dressed like an outrider or jockey with the helmet and everything...they asked me if I was doing horseback riding and what I was doing here, and told me they were here to do a music video but this [the racetrack setting] wasn't what they were looking for." Veilleux, of St-Hugues Que., told Facal and her videographer that she had access to a farm -- Ferme Drummond, owned by Veilleux's grand-father Alain -- and the crew felt that setting would be ideal. On the Saturday of Thankgiving weekend, the crew arrived to shoot. "My parts took about seven hours...changing costumes, preparing the horse. They took a lot of shots to make sure they had everything," Veilleux, 17, told Trot Insider. Facal was thoroughly impressed and pleased with the setting and the participants. "I was amazed at how professional [Anne-Marie] acted -- even though she had never done it before -- and her whole family was so helpful. We had never done an animal videoshoot before, it was a great experience." Also pleased and impressed was Veilleux with her Standardbred, Given the seven hours of shooting, his temperament was exemplary. "At the beginning he was fine but near the end he was getting a bit tired," said Veilleux. "At some moments when they were shooting, I was on the horse and nobody was holding him so I was happy that he was fine not moving a lot!" After the footage was assembled to create the final video to accompany the single, everyone involved gave the video a glowing report. "I talked to the group shortly after and they were very happy with their day. Everything they wanted in the video, they found it at the farm," noted Veilleux. "I talked to them again when the video came out and they were so happy because the video was exactly what they thought about at the beginning, and they only got good feedback from their people." Facal added that the story behind how the video came about reflected the fortuitous nature of the song, making it even more meaningful. "We are very happy with the result, the images are beautiful and they create a magical vibe mixed with the live footage of the band," said the singer. "The clip was created entirely by luck and that's why it will always be special for me." Veilleux wasn't familiar with the group prior to the video but is now a fan. "I was happy to see Quebecers making great music and involving local people in their projects." Caracol recently embarked on a tour of Europe, starting this past Wednesday in Austria with future dates in France, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.   Repritned with permission from www.standardbredcanada.ca
