East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands racetrack was abuzz this morning as some of the top older horses and three-year-olds were prepping for upcoming stakes. A dozen qualifiers began at 9:30 on a dry track under clear skies with little wind and the temperature in the 50's.   A number of Mack Lobell Elitlopp Playoff eligibles used today's qualifiers to prep for next Sunday's stake and JL Cruze made a strong case for his chances, sprinting clear of a good field by several lengths off the last turn then coasting late in 1:53/:27.   Crazy Wow left for the lead, released JL Cruze approaching the half and was second best while Pinkman made late gains to be third. Eric Ell conditions the winner for owners Ken Wood, Bill Dittmar, Jr and Steve Iaquinta.   DW's NY Yank is another eligible that impressed with an easy 1:53.2/:27.3 win for Yannick Gingras and trainer Ron Burke. Canepa Hanover got another good work in on his return to the races and was a comfortable second while Jewels In Hock and Crazshana also went well and were together at the wire. Burke Racing owns the winner in partnership with Howard Taylor and Weaver Bruscemi.   Be advised that there will be no live racing at The Meadowlands on Friday, May 6. There will be a live card on Sunday, May 8 a Mother's Day matinee card with post time at 12:40 p.m. The first race on that Mother's Day card will be the $150,000e Mack Lobell Elitlopp Playoff.   Radiant Beam won the day's opener for Andy and Julie Miller in 1:56/:28.2 after a pocket ride behind Dizzy Broad. Hollywood Hill split horses to gain the place while Dizzy Broad tired a bit though held third. Jason and Ronald Allen own the winner.   Several of 2015's finest two-year-old trotting fillies gathered for the second race and Caprice Hill was the winner in 1:53/:28 for Tim Tetrick. She sat a pocket behind the anxious Black Broadway who rattled off fast fractions, went by quickly and finished willingly in the fast mile. Last season's Dan Patch award winner, All The Time, made good gains late to be just a neck back in second, a useful first seasonal effort and Womans Will was a good third in her first go. Tony Alagna trains Caprice Hill for owner Tom Hill.   Southwind Flash (Y. Gingras/R. Burke) and Free Willy Hanover (T. Smedshammer) went under the wire together after a stretch-long duel finishing the 1:56.3 mile with a 27.4 final quarter in race four.   Lagerfeld won his second qualifier in 1:56/:28.1 with a strong rally from a stalking position for Gingras. He rode along in third as The Perfect Lindy set the fractions, fanned out and went by with no encouragement needed from the driver. Bar Hopping impressed in his first outing, closing strongly to be second for John Campbell and The Perfect Lindy held for third. Jimmy Takter trains Lagerfeld for his wife Christina, Herb Liverman and the Fieldings, John & Jim.   After the break sophomore colt trotters resumed the program with Make Or Miss looking very strong in his first outing of the season. Held in third by driver Joe Bongiorno early as Brooklyn Hill set a faster clip than David Miller would have liked, Make Or Miss was fanned wide in the stretch and went by under his own power in 1:54.2/:28. Brooklyn Hill held up well for second with Milligan's School and Love Matters both making a good appearance in their seasonal bow. Division leader Southwind Frank was programmed for this qualifier but did not race due to what's being reported as a quarter crack issue.   Pacers came up in race nine and a good group of sophomore colts and geldings finished across the track in a line with Voracity and Ideal Rocky together in advance of the six-pack. The mile was 1:52.3 with a 26.4 final quarter. Voracity is on his way to Ontario for trainer Alagna who owns the colt in partnership with Brad Grant and John Fodera while Ideal Rocky is prepping for the New Jersey Sires Stakes for trainer John Butenschoen and owners William Wiswell, Jean Goehlen and Eugene Schick.   Mindtrip went a good mile this morning, taking over near the half then winning as driver Yannick Gingras pleased in 1:52.4/:27.1. Tap Into Power closed nicely for second and Highlandbeachycove was an even third, while racing a bit greenly when shown racetrack. Mindtrip hails from the Alagna barn and is owned by the trainer in partnership with Crawford Racing, Sbrocco, Fodera and Massey.   American Ivy was a winner this morning in 1:52.4/:27.1 for Andy and Julie Miller. She sat second as Blue Moon Stride cut the mile then edged by that one late while staving off the rail rally by Three Dreams. Joe P Racing is the owner.   Mcwicked closed out the day with a 1:50.4/:26.2 win for Scott Zeron. Mcwicked zipped to the lead early, yielded to In The Arsenal for the middle half then took the rail route back by that rival for the win.

Steve Elliott now trains Mcwicked for the SSG Stables.   The final of the World Harness Handicapping Challenge is tonight, call Rachel Ryan if you want in. Post time for the live card tonight is 7:15 p.m.   From the Meadowlands Media Department

YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, April 23, 2016--The song remains the same for Maestro Blue Chip. Tuesday afternoon was the ninth victory in as many seasonal starts for the prohibitive ($2.50) favorite, easily winning the $73,500 final of Yonkers Raceway/Standardbred Owners Association of New York Bonus Trotting Series. The series was open to 3-year-olds and their elders who were non-winners of six parimutuel races and/or $100,000 through this past Feb. 1 (winners over $150,000 through that date ineligible). In play early from post position No. 6, "Maestro" (Tim Tetrick) had to work around first leader Summers Windsong (Jason Bartlett) before taking over. Lakota (George Brennan) was away third from the pole. Once pointed toward the point, there wasn't a whole lot of suspense. Maestro Blue Chip did his thing (:28.3, :57.4, 1:27.1, 1:56), dismissing a weak, first-up challenge from Newcastle (Brett Miller). "Maestro" owned and length-and-a-three-quarter lead entering the lane, before closing the sale by a length-and-a-quarter. He had won his three series legs by nearly 15 combined lengths. Summers Windsong was a solid second in a very good effort, with Lakota a three-hole third. Newcastle did hold fourth, while Tuscanellie (Dan Dube) recovered from an early misbehave to grab the final pay envelope. Jackie Goldstein (Vinny Ginsberg), Stormont Park (Jordan Stratton) and breaking-early A List Lindy (Matt Kakaley) rounded out the order. Maestro Blue Chip is a 4-year-old son of Credit Winner owned Richard Poillucci trained by JoAnn Looney-King. The exacta paid $41.60, with the triple returning $82. The $36,750 winner's share upped the seasonal earnings to an even $105,000, not including the $10,000 bonus from the SOA of NY. "He's just so versatile," Tetrick said. "I don't think we know where his bottom is since he hasn't race that much (22 career starts). He can get over any size track and I know they're very high on him. He has some tougher stakes later in the season, so we're going to find out." A $30,000 series consolation was won by a down-the-road Covert Operative (Brian Sears, $5.40) in 1:56.4. by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Sunday, April 24, 2016--They haven't beaten him all season, and they're probably gonna have to go some to do it with the money on the table. Maestro Blue Chip, he of the 8-for-8 seasonal resume, looms a short-priced proposition Tuesday afternoon in the $73,500 final of Yonkers Raceway/Standardbred Owners Association of New York Bonus Trotting Series. Post time for the dozen-race card is 1 PM, with the series finale going as the fifth race. The series was open to 3-year-olds and their elders who were non-winners of six parimutuel races and/or $100,000 through this past Feb. 1 (winners over $150,000 through that date ineligible). "Maestro" wears head No. 6 after drawing post position No. 5 in the finale of the four-week event, which has seen him win his three series legs by nearly 15 combined lengths...all as the odds-on choice. The 4-year-old son of Credit Winner is again driven by Tim Tetrick for owner Richard Poillucci and trainer JoAnn Looney-King. Maestro Blue Chip enters with seasonal earnings of $68,250 and his 1:55.3 effort a week ago was the fastest mile of this series. A List Lindy (Matt Kakaley, HN 1A, post 2), Tuscanellie (Dan Dube, HN 2, post 3) and Newcastle (Brett Miller, HN 6, post 7) each won twice in their series tries. Lakota (George Brennan, HN 1, post 1), Jackie Goldstein (Vinny Ginsburg, HN 3, post 4), Summers Windsong (Jason Bartlett, HN 4, post 5) and Stormont Park (Jordan Stratton, HN 7, post 8) complete the field. A $30,000 series consolation goes as the fourth race. Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

Rockeyed Optimist worked out an ideal close-to-the-action trip, wore down the leader in deep stretch and held on despite the explosive late charge of Always B Miki to take the $25,000 harness racing Open Handicap Pace at the Meadowlands Saturday night. McArdles Lightning was third. Driver Tim Tetrick hustled the 5-year-old gelded son of Rocknroll Hanover into the three hole early behind McArdles Lightning and Atta Boy Dan. After an opening quarter of :27.2, Rockeyed Optimist, the 6-5 second choice, moved to the outside and began to grind away at the leader's advantage at the half in :55.2. By the time the stellar field reached three-quarters, Rockeyed Optimist was up to the wheel of McArdles Lightning while 4-5 favorite Always B Miki, who had raced in a fourth-over flow, was dead last in the field of seven. Rockeyed Optimist continued to inch his way closer to the top and finally got past the pacesetter with a sixteenth of a mile to go. Up on the far outside came the airborne Always B Miki, who won all four of his starts a year ago in sub-1:50, pacing a sensational final quarter of :25.4 only to come up half a length short to Rockeyed Optimist in what was a superb seasonal debut. The winner returned $4.40 to his backers, scoring for the sixth time in eight starts this year and went the mile in 1:50 for trainer Steve Elliott and owners Perretti, Berkner, A&B Stable and Battaglia. STILL CLIMBING: Those hoping to hit the big one will have their chance on the next live race card as the 12th race 20 cent Jackpot Super High Five did not get hit again, upping the carryover to $194,741.03. Total wagering on the program was $2,589,150. Racing resumes at the Big M Friday. Post time for the first race is 7:15 p.m. by Dave Little, Meadowlands Media Relations

East Rutherford, NJ - It wasn't the nicest morning we've had recently but the track was bustling with training early and a full slate of qualifying races at 9:30. A light rain fell throughout with temps in the low 60's and no wind to speak of. Track was off a second or so at the start, got a bit worse in the middle then began to dry as the rain subsided for the last four or five races.   The headliner matched a pair of million dollar winning sophomore trotters from 2015, Crazy Wow and Pinkman, with Crazy Wow getting the decision in 1:55/:28.2. Honor And Serve (now in the Ake Svanstadt barn) cut the mile and led into the stretch when Crazy Wow trotted up to his outside while Pinkman ducked to the inside as the three finished in a line across the track. Tim Tetrick drove the winner for the Ron Burke stable and owners Horse Cents, J&T Silva and Deo Volente Farms.   Sunset Glider opened the day a winner in a repeat of last week's card. This time she took a pocket behind Silvia, overtook that one quickly at the three-quarters then won off by herself in 1:56.2/:28. Silvia was an urged second. Dave Miller drove her again for Jimmy Takter and owners Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld.   Race two contained several of last season's top trotting fillies. Celebrity Eventsy made a good appearance in her first outing, leaving sharply from post nine to the front then yielding to Kathy Parker through middle splits then went by that rival in the stretch under no urging from John Campbell in 1:57.1/:28.3. Kathy Parker and a closing Caprice Hill hit the wire together behind the winner and Haughty was a willing fourth. The unbeaten NYSS champ Non Stick also went along nicely in this one. Staffan Lind trains the winner for Sam Stathis's Celebrity Farms.   Trond Smedshammer put the lightly races Tyson on the front early and won easily over Desert Runner in 1:57.2/:28.4. Trond trains and shares ownership with Purple Haze Stable, Anderson Farms and Marc Goldberg.   Jimmy William is the latest from the great broodmare Solveig and although he didn't do much at two he is showing signs of talent this year. In his second appearance this season he left for position, sat third then went by willingly in 1:58.1/:29.1 for Brett Miller. Southern Cross was a well meant second and Nebraska Jack third. Solveig's Racing Partners owns and Takter trains the winner.   PA Sires Stakes Final winner Lagerfeld won the fifth race for Takter and Yannick Gingras. He sat in as first Gleaming Memory and Hollywood Highway took turns on the lead through slow numbers then went by on his own when shown a clear lane in the stretch closing the 1:57.3 mile with a 28.3 quarter. Hollywood Highway held second and Metatron third. He's another Takter trainee owned by Christina Takter, Jim & John Fielding and Herb Liverman.   Older trotters took the track after a break and Donotomite got up in the last step on Canepa Hanover in 1:54.4 for Smedshammer. The two took turns on the lead with Canepa Hanover taking over past the half and leading through a 27.3 third quarter then Donotomite wearing him down in the 29 flat close. The winner is a Michael Andrew homebred trained by Trond.   Pacing fillies came up in the eighth today and Cut And Paste got up from far back in 1:53.2/28.2 for Jimmy Marohn, Jr. Heels On The Beach set the early numbers then two or three waves of fillies overtook the early leaders as they neared the wire. Penpal was second and Shezarealdeal an up the inside third. Linda Toscano trains the winner and owns part as Cameo Stable with Stake Your Claim and Fred Wallace.   Pure Country was powerful this morning, drawing away from some good fillies in 1:53.1/:27 for Brett Miller. Slowly taking the lead from post seven through a 28.3 opener, Miller yielded to No Clouds Blue Chip past that station, sat for a half then tipped Pure Country passing the three quarter mark and she took off. Yankee Moonshine and Pure Ivy followed the winner in. Diamnod Creek Farms owns the winner and she is trained in the Jimmy Takter stable.   Pretty Boy Hill prevailed after a stretch-long battle with Selvin in 1:56.1/:27.4.

Driver Tim Tetrick, who had 1 win on the program, made his way into the crowd to visit with 90-year-old racing fan Joe Wonder, who was celebrating his birthday on Sunday. Tetrick drove Rainbow Romance N to victory in race 8 on the program, a mid-level conditioned affair for pacers.

The 4-year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover was making his seasonal debut after a successful 3-year-old campaign that saw him bankroll just under $270,000. Driver Yannick Gingras sat patiently in the pocket, angling out at three-quarters and out sprinted a closing True Blue Hall (Dave Miller) late to win in 1:51 for owners Burke Racing, M1 Stables, Larry Karr, and Jt45. He paid $2.80. The upset of the day came in race 3, when Joie De Vie Farm's Nicko De Vie (Jim Meittinis) came up the passing lane to win at 26-1, prompting a 2 out of 3 payoff in the pick 3, and a $1,500 trifecta payoff despite the favorites finishing second and third.

Odds-on choice Rockeyed Optimist rolled to the front and never looked back en route to his third consecutive win in Saturday (March 12) night's $25,000 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadowlands, and handle exceeded $3 million for the 12th time in the last 13 harness racing cards at the North Jersey harness track.   In the featured $25,000 Open Handicap Pace, Rockeyed Optimist ($3.60) sprinted off from his five rivals after using the first three-eighths of the mile to work clear, earning his third consecutive win and second at the Open level. Tim Tetrick spotted the 5-year-old Rocknroll Hanover gelding second-over on the first turn, tracking Bettor's Edge (Joe Bongiorno) through a :27.1 quarter before losing cover and subsequently working clear on the backstretch. Once assuming the lead, Rockeyed Optimist faced no pressure, edging clear off the far turn and powering home in 1:49, using a :26 last quarter burst to evade his foes. Rockeyed Optimist ultimately prevailed by two lengths over Bettor's Edge, while Sunfire Blue Chip (John Campbell) stayed on for third from his stalking trip.   Steve Elliott trains the 18-time winner for the partnership of Perretti, Berkner, the A & B Stable, and Battaglia. For Elliott, it was a sweep of the evening's featured events, as another trainee of his--Art History ($8.20)--captured the night's sub-featured $16,000 upper-level conditioned pace earlier in the program. The 5-year-old Western Ideal gelding sustained a first-over push through the far turn, overtaking 2014 Little Brown Jug winner Limelight Beach in mid-stretch and subsequently staving off a late rally from K-Lees Shakenbake. Scott Zeron drove 12-time winner Art History to his 1:50 triumph.   Anthony Napolitano led all drivers with a grand slam, teaming up with Honey I'm Home ($2.80, 1:51.4), Hoboken Hanover ($7.40, 1:52.2), Last Dragon ($18.00, 1:50.2), and Major War ($4.60, 1:50.3).

Velocity Vespa and harness racing driver George Napolitano Jr. teamed up to score a track record 1:49 victory in the $75,000 Final of the Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park Late Closing Series on Saturday night (March 5).   Though that was a highlight on the "Super Saturday" program, the pair had to share with spotlight as the stars--both in the sky and on the track--were plentiful and shined brightly the entire night.   Here is a recap of the festivities:   $75,000 Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park Late Closing Final   The aforementioned Velocity Vespa appeared to push the Hummer Starting Gate out of the way at the start and blasted her way through fractions of :26.1, :54 and 1:21 before sprinting home in :28 to score a victory measuring just short of a length in 1:49, the fastest of any distaffer in the 52 year history of the track.   The six year-old daughter of I Scoot Hanover, trained by Chris Oakes for owner Susan Oakes, off as the 3 to 5 public choice, pinned the defeat on Show Runner, driven by Tim Tetrick, with Pertty Music, handled by Kevin Wallis, third, almost seven lengths away. LUcy's Pearl finished fourth while Godiva Seelster, hampered by the outside nine post, rallied from last half way through the mile to finish fifth and extend her streak of races earning purse checks to 77 covering her seasons as a three, four, five and, now, six year-old seasons.   This was a classic "Nap" drive as he had Velocity Vespa ripe to roll and she did just that, thwarting any threats that may have developed during the mile.   In a post race interview, driver George Napolitano, Jr. said, "You know, last week I was a little lazy leaving with her and she was hung out there the whole way. Chris (trainer Oakes) even yelled at me a bit after that and I told him that would not happen again. He reminded me that she came out of last week excellent and that she'd be ready for this tonight. Boy, was she ever ready."   Velocity Vespa is now 6 for 8 this semester with earnings of $69,125, more than all of last season in 32 starts.   Lifetime, Velocity Vespa, coming in to the action with lifetime bounty just a tad under $200,000, vaulted over that with the win--her career earnings now at $237,362.   She paid $3.20 to her many faithful.   $30,000 INVITATIONAL HANDICAP TROT TO WIND OF THE NORTH   Wind Of The North, catch-driven by David Miller, slipped through along the pylons in deep stretch to score a sharp 1:53.3 win in his 2016 seasonal debut.   The six year-old altered son of Cantab Hall, trained by Jenny Bier, who co-owns with Jonann Dombeck, scored by 3/4s of a length over Oho Diamond , driven by Wally Hennessey. Crazy About Pat and Tim Tetrick teamed up to be third while Natural Herbie finished fourth. Winding Hill made a miscue at the beginning and finished fifth in the quintet.   It was the track record holding mare Oho Diamond away alertly with Wind Of The North also showing gate speed from the coveted five post and Crazy About Pat next and finding a cozy seat in third.   At the :27.2 opener, Oho Diamond was leading the way with Wind Of The North cozily next through a half in :56.3. On the backside, Crazy About Pat left the pocket and charged up to challenge with Wind Of The North still sitting chilly third and patiently for any seam to open along the shortest route.   In the lane, that seam developed and Miller took advantage and shot Wind Of The North on through to score the win.   In the winner's circle, driver David Miller said, "this being his first start, I really didn't want to push him too hard too early but he seemed anxious so I let him do what he wanted and found a nice spot early. I think he raced really big, especially off of a qualifier. He beat a very good field tonight, too. It was an honor to drive him."   In garnering his 19th lifetime win in 73 starts, Wind Of The North now has amassed $485,848 in career bounty to go along with his 1:51 mark.   $20,000 OPEN HANDICAP PACE - SCOTT ROCKS "ROCKS" IN 1:49   Scott Rocks, handled by George Napolitano, jr., turned the tables on arch-rival Panocchio and roared on by in the lane to score a handy three length win in 1:49.   Panocchio, slicing through panels of :26.1; :54.1 and 1:21.3 finished second for Wally Hennessey while Johnny Grippa, sitting chilly the entire way from the rail, finished third with Kevin Wallis in the bike. Dedi's Dragon made a bold first up backside bid and eventually finished fourth while Bluehourpower picked up the nickel.   Said winning driver George Napolitano, Jr., after the event, "You know, this is a very underrated horse. He has a very quick and sharp burst--I mean, really lightning like. And, of course (tongue-in-cheek), a lot had to do with the drive. Last week, they got the trip. This week, we got the trip. No doubt, he was very sharp, very quick tonight."   Trained by Chris Oakes for owners Susan Oakes and Chuck Pompey, Scott Rocks, a six year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover, now sports a 2-1-0 scorecard in three starts and now has lifetime earnings of $358,775.   AS the 3 to 5 tote-board favorite, Scott Rocks rewarded his $2.00 investors with a dividend of $3.20.   TEAM TETRICK WINS F.A.D.C. PRO-AM COMPETITION   The Florida Amateur Driving Club, significantly added to their already generous contributions total approaching $160,000 in the first annual Pro-Am event, with Tim Tetrick and David Miller captaining their respective teams.   The two race event was won by Team Tetrick with the final "point total being 82 to 40.   The opening event went to Team Tetrick's Mitchell Sky" Walker, who got his own Global Power up in the very last stride to score in 1:59.2 over another Tetrick roster member, Dennis Whittemore, handling Starbux Eden. Tetrick, himself, was third with Rel Cash Clown while Team Miller earned their initial points with David, himself, in the bike back of Sorrento Hall. Laurie Poulin, the only "filly" on the Team Miller roster, was next with What About Brian.   'Sky" Walker's Global Power paid $10.80 to win.   After that first round, the score was 39-22.   Team Tetrick sealed the deal in the finale by guiding the favorite PC's Wildcard to a handy win in 1:57, easily a lifetime mark.   Hannah Miller, guiding M C Felix for Team Tetrick, finished second while yet another Team Tetrick driver, Jamie Marra, "officially" finished third with Engagedatlexington.   Miller, himself, was originally third in the event with Witty's Winner, but was set back a notch to fourth for a pylon violation. Tommy Santeramo, on Tetrick's roster, finished fifth.   When all was tallied, Team Tetrick had the upper-hand by a score of 82 to 40, significant since the Florida Amateur Driving Club donated $3,000 to Tetrick's charity, New Vocations while $2,000 was given upon Miller's favorite charity--Make-A-Wish.   Both New Vocations and Make-A-Wish had representatives at the ceremony with Patty Escobar from Make-A-Wish saying, "I never realized that a sport like harness racing can have such a positive impact on any charity, including ours. This ia a dream night for Make-A-Wish and yet another dream will come true for a child. This is such a blessing!"   Between races, Tim Tetrick presented Dein Spriggs with his "world" colors and the Isle International Series gets underway in one week at Pompano Park.   The two day extravaganza will feature drivers from nine European countries and "down under."   Spriggs will represent the U.S.A. in the series.   Racing continues on Sunday night at Pompano Park with a scheduled post time of 7:30 p.m.   by John Berry for Pompano Park
