Stuck with post 9, Smokinmombo trotted patiently for Aaron Merriman until she picked up the live first-over cover of Railee Priti. When her cover faltered before the three-quarters, the 4-year-old daughter of Explosive Matter-Horizontal Mombo went three wide briefly before engaging Anaffairtoremember.

Iron Mine Bucky survived a miserable first quarter in the slop and went on to capture the faster division of Saturday's $116,304 Currier & Ives at The Meadows. Cufflink Hanover took the other division in the stake for harness racing 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters. Iron Mine Bucky hadn't raced since winning an Oct. 2 Keystone Classic split at The Meadows, and he got just the sort of journey -- stuck outside -- winning driver George Dennis didn't want. "I wasn't expecting to get that rough a trip," Dennis said. "They didn't go that much early, and he got a little excited -- first time out, first time in the mud. I didn't want to wrestle him back to last." But the Hambletonian-eligible son of Explosive Matter-My Foolish Dream persevered on the outside and overpowered the leader, 2-5 favorite Hititoutofthepark. Iron Mine Bucky prevailed in 1:55.2, 1-1/2 lengths better than Steed, while Hititoutofthepark saved show. "He really trotted strong up the backside and turned in a big mile," Dennis said. "I'm very, very pleased." Greg Haverstick trains Iron Mine Bucky, who extended his career bankroll to $132,023, for Iron Mine Branch LLC. Iron Mine Bucky Cufflink Hanover has won three of four starts since adding hopples, and he again looked useful and professional. He worked out a pocket trip behind Truemass Volo, then blew by him in the lane to triumph in 1:55.4. Hollywood Highway found late room for second, 2 lengths back, with Truemass Volo third. "He's been getting lucky with his trips, and he's been racing good," said winning driver David Miller, who owns the Andover Hall-CR Savoire Faire gelding with the Enzed Racing Stable of the colt's trainer, Nifty Norman. "He seemed way sharper today than he did last week. He's coming along really nice." Cufflink Hanover $70,500 Currier & Ives, 3-Year-Old Filly Trotters Saturday's rain-soaked program also featured the filly division of the Currier & Ives, with Goodtogo Hanover rolling to her seventh consecutive victory. Lookin Sharp erased a sizable deficit to take the other split. Goodtogo Hanover was away second for Brian Zendt, who moved her to the point before the quarter. The daughter of Explosive Matter-Grammy Hall held off the late challenge of the pocket-sitting Witnesstheprincess by 3/4 lengths in 1:56.4. Moots completed the ticket. Goodtogo Hanover, who vaulted over $100,000 in career earnings, is undefeated in seven outings this year, but she showed once again that she can be a handful until the gate folds. "She was a little wild behind the gate -- ohmygosh," Zendt said. "She had her head hung up on the gate for a minute. She was so mad I don't know how she didn't run. She makes you worry, but as long as you don't have her doubled up and mad, she'll be okay. She doesn't want to run. All she wants to do is get out of there." Bill Zendt conditions Goodtogo Hanover and owns with Gary Saul. Goodtogo Hanover Lookin Sharp, the 4-5 favorite, trailed the leader, Sunset Glider, by 3 lengths at the three-quarters when Matt Kakaley suggested it was time to get busy. She tracked down Sunset Glider and downed her by a neck in 1:57, with My Pink Bike third. "Of all the horses we sent to Florida (for the winter), she's probably one of the horses who grew up and matured the most," said Tyler Butenschoen, assistant to winning trainer John Butenschoen. "I saw a big difference in her. She showed late in the year she could go with the best fillies. The more the year went on, the more she learned and the better she got." William Wiswell and M&L of Delaware campaign the daughter of Andover Hall-Warrawee Krisp, who soared over $200,000 in career earnings. Lookin Sharp Evan Pattak

Tamarind grabbed the lead before the quarter and cruised through the slop to a convincing harness racing victory in Wednesday's $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Tamarind sat briefly in the pocket behind Chef Lee, but Aaron Merriman sent him to the point once the field settled. The 8-year-old son of Angus Hall-Spicegirl Kosmos had no serious challenges from there, scoring in 1:53.4. Chef Lee preserved second, 3-3/4 lengths back, while Lady's Dude finished third. Bill Bercury trains and owns Tamarind, who now boasts $821,349 in career earnings.

Keystone Chester shot the Lightning Lane for show. Brian Zendt piloted the 7-year-old SJ's Caviar-Penn Worthy Lane gelding, who soared over $400,000 in lifetime earnings, for owner/trainer Lisa Dunn.

A longtime top performer at The Meadows, Set Me Up dropped into a conditioned event to collect last week's win. She was sharp in the top distaff pace Monday, following the first-over cover of Coffee Addict before Dave Palone sent her wide through the stretch.

Milligan’s School thwarted the sustained bid of Hititoutofthepark and went on to score in 1:55.3 in the slop, fastest division of Saturday’s $167,303 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes at The Meadows. The event for harness racing 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters, known as the Super Bowl, was contested over four divisions, with Cufflink Hanover, Truemass Volo and Lagerfeld taking the other splits. Milligan’s School earned $302,560 at 2 but didn’t reach the lead at any point in his final five starts of the year. But in his seasonal debut, that’s where Andy Miller put him. “I would just have soon sat in the pocket or up close somewhere and follow somebody, but that’s where he ended up,” Miller said. “The fractions weren’t that tough, so he responded well. He’s always been a very smart colt. Hopefully, he’s on to bigger and better.” Hititoutofthepark, fresh off a PA All Stars victory, drew even down the backside, but the son of Yankee Glide-Tori Ann was up to the challenge, downing his rival by 3/4 lengths. Desert Runner rallied for show. July Miller trains Milligan’s School for Stroy Inc. Second in the Dexter Cup final a week ago, Cufflink Hanover found late racing room and kicked by early leader Love Matters to defeat him by 1/2 length in 1:56, with Southern Cross third. “I was hoping we would get room,” said winning driver David Miller, for owns the Andover Hall-CR Savoire Faire gelding with the Enzed Racing Stable of the colt’s trainer, Nifty Norman. “I thought the horse on the front end would take us where we had to go. So I took a shot and sat in. I didn’t know about coming first over with my horse.” He said Cufflink Hanover is ticketed for next week’s Currier & Ives at The Meadows and remains eligible for the Yonkers Trot later this season. Truemass Volo zipped to the front in his seasonal debut and had little trouble prevailing in 1:56 for Eric Goodell, trainer Doug Hamilton and owners Jon Erdner and Martin Garey. Marion Gondolier finished second, 4-3/4 lengths back, while Hanks Tank completed the ticket. “He’s come back good for us, pretty fit.” Hamilton said of the son of Muscle Massive-Tresbien Volo. “Last year, he was a little bit of a bully in letting horses go and getting a little temperamental. So we castrated him. Now he can do his bully stuff and get away with it. He’ll go to some of the bigger races if everything’s okay. There’s a feeling-out process before you take on the big boys.” $100,000 PA Stallion Series, 3-Year-Old Colt & Gelding Trotters Saturday’s card also featured a $100,000 PA Stallion Series stake for sophomore colt and gelding trotters. The event provided a showcase for Elysium Lindy, who collected his fourth consecutive victory. That streak includes the $30,000 final of the Weiss series at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. Also capturing $20,000 splits were Will Self, Dominus Hanover, Meadowbranch Memo and Mr Right. As is his custom, Elysium Lindy rushed to the front from post 8 for Jim Pantaleano and held off Multitaskr Hanover by 1/2 length in 1:57.2. Love To Glide was third. “I kept everything the same because he’s been racing very well,” said Kelly Stackowicz, who trains the Cantab Hall-Olympic Lindy gelding locally for his regular conditioner, Donna Marshall. “You don’t want to fix things that aren’t broken.” Dominus Hanover vacated the pocket at the three-quarters, put away Mosconi Hanover and triumphed in 1:56.2, 1/2 length better than Iholdon. Mac Deeno finished third. “I thought I’d got him far enough with some cover, with some help,” said winning driver Dave Palone. “I was watching Andrew (McCarthy) intently, and when he chased Mosconi Hanover, I thought, better to give him a shot outside than try the Lightning Lane in these conditions.” Amber Buter trains the son of Muscle Massive-Dornello, who vaulted over $100,000 in career earnings, for Lawrence Crawford. Will Self endured a wide opening panel before reaching the point but had enough left late to hold off Moneycounts De Vie, who was challenging in the Lightning Lane, by a neck in 1:58.2. Chip’s Halloffame finished third. “He’s been getting safer,” said winning driver Ray Schnittker, who trains and owns the son of Donato Hanover-Falls For You with Ted Gewertz, Arden Homestead Stable and Bordogna Stable. “He’s always put some steps in, but he warmed up very well, so I thought he’d be okay. He had a chance to get beat, and he hung tough.” Evan Pattak

Chef Lee whipped up a new "Specialty of the House" Wednesday at The Meadows -- a 59-1 upset harness racing victory in the $16,500 Winners Over $10,000 Life Trot. Mike Wilder hustled Chef Lee from post 9 to the front, where he released the lead to I Know My Chip. The 4-year-old Cantab Hall-Summer Savory gelding stalked I Know My Chip from the pocket and edged him by a neck in the Lightning Lane in a career-best 1:53.3. TSM Photo Bugger finished third. Norm Parker trains and owns Chef Lee, who now boasts $216,914 in career earnings. Jim Pantaleano piloted three winners on the 13-race card.

Spreester made the decisive move entering the final turn and had just enough to prevail in Monday's harness racing $22,500 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. With Show Runner on an easy lead and no outside flow developing, Aaron Merriman was content to save ground with Spreester until late in the mile. When the 5-year-old daughter of American Ideal-Rodeo Spree attacked from third, she edged past Show Runner and found the wire a nose ahead of Medusa, who was narrowing the gap in the Lightning Lane, scoring in 1:52.4. Show Runner saved show. Bill Bercury trains Spreester, who extended her career bankroll to $461,671, for Renee Bercury. Tony Hall and Merriman each piloted three winners on the 14-race card.

Pink Pistol rocketed through the lane to pull off a 10-1 upset in the fastest division of Saturday's $161,047 Pennsylvania Sires Stake for harness racing 3-year-old filly trotters at The Meadows. The event, known as the Stenographer, was contested over three divisions, with Ginny Weasley (13-1) and Spicedbourbongirl (9-1) completing the long shot parade in the PASS opener. Jeff Gregory enjoyed a stake double behind Pink Pistol and Spicedbourbongirl. Pink Pistol hadn't raced in a month, as Rob Harmon, who trains the daughter of Cantab Hall-August Revenue for Harmon Racing Stable, Knightstalker Stable and Lynne Mondrick, gave her an extended break to help cure her gaiting problems. "She needed to go home and not ship so much," Harmon said. "She has a little tying-up issue, and shipping is not her best thing. She'll stay right here in the sires stakes. She's eligible for a couple in Canada, but she has to show us that she's back to herself before we start going up there." In the Stenographer, she got away third, saved ground and brushed through the stretch to triumph in 1:55, 1-1/2 lengths better than Sunset Glider, with Candy Lane third. It was the fifth win for Pink Pistol in eight lifetime outings. Ginny Weasley never had won a stake, but Lucas Wallin nevertheless used her twice -- once for early position from post 8, once to pursue the leader second over. She avoided the breaking Moots out of the final turn and scored in 1:55.1, a career best. Miss Tezsla was second, 1-1/2 lengths back, while Black Broadway earned show. "She showed a lot of speed last year, and I won at the Meadowlands with her earlier this year," Wallin said. "So we told the owner to give her a little break and aim for the stake races. The trip went great today, but she won pretty easy." Ake Svanstedt trains the daughter of Andover Hall-Donepunk for Torp Trotting, Inc. Spicedbourbongirl also collected her first stake victory when she zipped past the 1-5 favorite, Womans Will, in the lane and prevailed in 1:55.4 for owner William B. Weaver III. Womans Will saved place, 1/2 length in arrears, while Kathy Parker completed the ticket. "She won pretty handy at Pocono in an overnight, so we thought we might as well give her a shot against the better girls," said Gregory, who also conditions the daughter of Cantab Hall-All In The Muscles. "It was only her second start of the year, so I didn't want to abuse her. I was hoping I could get lucky and save some ground." $60,000 PA Stallion Series -- 3-Year-Old Filly Trotters Saturday's card also featured a $60,000 PA Stallion Series stake for sophomore filly trotters -- yet another showcase for Goodtogo Hanover, who won her seventh consecutive race. Witnesstheprincess and Shelovesumore also took $20,000 splits. As Goodtogo Hanover zipped to the top from post 7, driver Brian Zendt, noticed an unusual problem. A GoPro camera attached to her sulky to capture live images had loosened and flipped. The images transmitted may have been upside down, but the daughter of Explosive Matter-Grammy Hall stayed atop her game, winning in 1:56.2 "I don't know if it (the GoPro) bothered her, but it was rubbing her," Zendt said. "She was a little extra hot today. I thought she was a little quieter last time. I didn't plan on being at the quarter in 27.2, but as you could see, I was a passenger." Keystone Taylor finished 3-1/4 lengths back in second, with Best Of Dreams third. Bill Zendt trains Goodtogo Hanover and owns with Gary Saul. Witnesstheprincess rebounded from a pair of break-marred outings to collect a front-end victory for Aaron Merriman and trainer Chris Beaver, who owns the daughter of Andover Hall-Mystical Moonlight with Synerco Ventures and Michael Robinson. Mystical Power earned place, 3-1/4 lengths back, while Glidinthruparadise finished third. "She had a couple good starts here earlier this year, but we had some issues with her shoeing and her feet," Merriman said. "She wasn't getting over the track. Chris made some adjustments and thought she would be better. She really showed it today." Shelovesumore emerged from several months of vexing medical issues to rally for a 1/2-length victory -- at 20-1 -- over Summer Moonshine in 1:57.1. Explosive High finished third. Tony Hall drove for trainer Sharon Donella, who owns the homebred daughter of War Paint-Wasador with Kathleen Quinn-Hodel. "It's been a torturous three months," Donella said. "She had some problems with her cycle. Then she got a real bad sinus infection. We finally got the hormones worked out, the sinuses cleared up, and we got us a horse." In the $22,500 Winners Over 10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace, Unlocked powered to a front-end victory in 1:49, fastest ever at The Meadows by an older pacer. Fred And Ginger held the previous mark of 1:49.2 Jim Pantaleano piloted the 5-year-old son of Duneside Perch-Miss Major Power, who boosted his career bankroll to $417,244, for trainer Norm Parker and owner Megan Rogers Racing Stables.

Seventh Secret worked out a cozy pocket trip, then blew by the leader in deep stretch to capture the harness racing Saturday's $15,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life Pace at The Meadows. Aimo Hanover was determined to seat the field, so Mike Wilder guided Seventh Secret to the pocket from post 5. Aimo Hanover turned back the first-over challenge of his stablemate, Easy Again, but Seventh Secret was stronger in the lane, defeating Aimo Hanover by a head in 1:51. David's Dream finished third. Dan Altmeyer trains Seventh Secret, a 5-year-old son of Allamerican Native-Secret Song who now boasts $274,211 in career earnings, for Ruth Altmeyer, Eric Hutchison and Heather Wilder. Aaron Merriman piloted four winners on the 13-race card. After a brief hiatus, live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, May 7, when the track presents a special Kentucky Derby Day program. Featured are a pair of stakes for 3-year-old filly trotters: a $185,000 (est) Pennsylvania Sires Stake and a $60,000 (est) Pennsylvania Stallion Series event. First post is 11:25 AM.

More Dragon survived a demanding first quarter and rolled on to a convincing victory in Saturday's $32,500 championship of the Atta Boy Dan Pace for harness racing 3-year-old colts and geldings at The Meadows. More Dragon was parked throughout a 27.2 opening panel before clearing to the lead. Winning driver Dave Palone said he wasn't overly concerned about the potential impact of that swift quarter. "We were just looking for everybody to get settled," Palone said. "It was just a matter of everybody finding a spot and then moving him to the front. He responded really strong through the wire." Once on top, More Dragon easily parried the first-over thrust of Trelane to score in 1:54.1, 2-1/2 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Arthur Pendragon. Rip This Joint was third. Palone indicated More Dragon, who's fresh enough with only three starts this year, may turn out to be a top performer. "I think he's a pretty good colt," Palone said. "I know they'll be out there in 1:49 miles, but he's been well within himself. I've seen these kinds of horses move to other tracks and shade 1:50. He has a terrific attitude. The only knock on him is he's a little fella, but he takes great big steps, and he has a good way of doing it." Ron Burke trains More Dragon, a Dragon Again-Liscaramore gelding, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Knox Services and David Wills. In the $22,500 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace, Dew N Doughnuts was able to slip by three horses in an early jackpot and prevail in 1:52.2. The trouble began when both Seventh Secret and Unlocked broke stride while trying for the lead, placing Sam Hill in a precarious position behind them. Aaron Merriman kept Sam Hill clear of the rest of the field, enabling Dew N Doughnuts and Tony Hall to ease through safely along the pylons. The 6-year-old son of Real Desire-Artbitration defeated the rallying Easy Again by a length, with the first-over Cammikey third. Norm Parker conditions Dew N Doughnuts, who now boasts $314,274 in lifetime earnings, for Tom Klosky, Jr. Palone piloted five winners and Mike Wilder four on the 15-race card. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

Dismissed at 19-1, Breedlove launched an explosive uncovered move that gobbled up the field and carried him to a 19-1 upset victory in Tuesday's opening leg of the Classicality Trot at The Meadows. The event for harness racing 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters honors Classicality, a fast-class trotter currently performing at The Meadows for Dunn Stable. Breedlove, with only a maiden victory to his credit, got away third from post 8 and moved willingly first over for Mike Wilder down the backside, He drew off to score in 1:58.1, 5-1/4 lengths better that early leader Chip's Halloffame, with Treasure Quest K third. Norm Parker trains the son of Cantab Hall-Siren Hall for Shaleni Farm LLC. The other $17,500 Classicality division was an odd-looking affair that began innocently enough when Moneycounts De Vie left for Dan Rawlings from post 8 and appeared to be settling in the pocket. But the leader, Judge Russell, broke stride, left the course and continued to race inside the pylons. In all the confusion, Moneycounts De Vie found himself shuffled, without apparent racing room. But Rawlings angled him off the cones, and the Andover Hall-Nordicdish gelding powered home to triumph in 1:57.3. The first-over Meadowbranch Memo was second, 3/4 lengths back, while Edinburgh earned show. Dirk Simpson conditions Moneycounts Di Vie for James Bafia and Dirk Simpson Stable. Wilder piloted five winners on the 15-race card while trainer Mark Goldberg enjoyed a triple. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

Let go at a juicy 25-1, Stirling Euphoria moved powerfully first over to score the upset in Monday's opening leg of the Do Me Honor Pace at The Meadows. Lenore Karidian took the other $17,500 opening-leg division in the event for harness racing 3-year-old fillies. The series is named for Do Me Honor, a fast-class pacer who has banked more than $682,000 and is currently racing for owner/trainer Bill Bercury. A lightly raced filly making only her fifth career start, Stirling Euphoria responded like a seasoned veteran when Dave Palone sent her first over -- in the slop -- after the leader, Wasaga Beach. She spurted clear and scored in a career-best 1:56, surviving an inquiry for a possible pylon violation. Terror Grin rallied for second, 1-1/4 lengths back, with Hooves On First third. Ben Davis trains the daughter of Western Ideal-Chattanooga for Brent Hopper, S&S Racing Stable and Kenneth York. In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace, Spreester moved second over to victory for Aaron Merriman, trainer Bercury and owner Renee Bercury. The 5-year-old daughter of American ideal-Rodeo Spree, who now boasts $431,271 in career earnings, triumphed in 1:53.3, 1/2 length better than Show Runner. Set Me Up was third.

Like a Timex watch of yore, Rockin Ron takes a lickin' but keeps on tickin'. He demonstrated that once again in Saturday's harness racing $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows when, for the fourth consecutive start, he was parked in a sub-27 opening quarter while trying for the lead. He prevailed easily Saturday, just as he did the previous three races, and stretched his overall winning streak to seven. Once the 4-year-old Real Desire-Im All A Roan gelding settled on the front for Dave Palone, he repelled the first-over challenge of Dew N Doughnuts and scored in 1:51, 1-3/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Unlocked. Dew N Doughnuts saved show. Ron Burke trains Rockin Ron, who now boasts $189,918 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and RTC Stables. Aaron Merriman piloted five winners on the 15-race card while Tony Hall and trainer Paul Corey each enjoyed a three-bagger. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino
