It’s not only a pleasure to be participating, it is a true honor. Like the Make-A- Wish Foundation people say, ‘one moment changes everything,’ and we know that our efforts will make many moments possible to change the lives of our children.”   Tetrick will be in the sulky for the benefit of New Vocations, an organization that provides a “safety net” through rehabilitation, education and placement for retired racehorses.   In speaking about New Vocations, Tetrick said, “You know, our horses give their hearts and souls with every stride on the racetrack and I believe that, after they are done in that phase of their career, we should help them in their next career, whether it be as a pleasure horse or as a therapeutic horse.”   In a joint statement, F.A.D.C. President Dein Spriggs and Treasurer Tom Eichas echoed the sentiments of both Miller and Tetrick saying, “This is what our sport needs—making it an important vehicle that can benefit worthy charities and their recipients throughout North America.   I think it’s great that two of our sport’s best drivers have turned into two of our best philanthropists in working on behalf of our sport and its image—great horsemen they are but, even more important, even greater men.”   The festivities at Pompano Park get under way Saturday night with post time set for 7:20 p.m.   John Berry

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Richard Poillucci knew what he was doing when he purchased harness racing 9-year-old gelding Christen Me N earlier this year, and after taking the featured $20,000 Preferred Handicap at the Meadowlands Saturday night, everything appears to be all systems go for the upcoming season. "He came out of the race really well," said Joann Looney-King, who trains the horse along with her husband, Jim King, Jr. "Everything is real good. We were just talking about the fact that Wiggle It Jiggleit is coming back (next year) and we would love to take him on." If it happens, 'Wiggle' will have his hands full. Christen Me N was much the best after sitting a four-hole trip in the early stages. Driver Tim Tetrick got the 2015 New Zealand Horse of the Year in gear at the five-eighths, sailed past leader Sweet Rock on the far turn and reported home an easy winner, three-quarters-of-a-length in front of Sweet Rock at the wire. Tullow N was third. As the 2-5 public choice, Christen Me N returned $2.80 to his backers, winning his fourth straight and 38th overall from only 79 starts. The winning time was 1:50, three-fifths of a second off his lifetime best, set Dec. 7 at Dover Downs. "We are putting him back in Thursday at Dover," said Looney-King. "Even though we are trying not to over race him. I'm sure we won't do that very often." So, Joann, what's the plan? "We are looking to race in all of the major older pacing stakes and then, at the end of the year, the Breeders Crown." A LITTLE MORE: Driver Jim Marohn Jr. stayed red-hot, winning four times on the card, capping a three-day race week that saw him visit the winner's circle nine times. ... There were some big payoffs on the program as only three favorites visited victory lane. The 20 Cent Survivor Pick 10 returned $8,301.02 to two lucky winners and the Late Pick 4 - which featured a 30-1 shot in the final leg - returned $20,607.95 for a 50 Cent ticket. ... After not resulting in a single-ticket winner, the Late 20 Cent Jackpot Super Hi-5 carryover ballooned to $43,831.49. ... All-source wagering totaled $2,284,134. ... Racing resumes at the Big M Thursday at 7:15 p.m. By Dave Little, Meadowlands Media Relations

Harness racing driver Tim Tetrick has long had a knack for rewriting the record books. In Friday afternoon's (November 3) final race at Harrah's Philadelphia, he did it again, becoming the youngest driver to win 10,000 races and doing so in partnership with Marcus Melander trainee Earl Variera ($2.60). The Flora, Ill. native is now the 12th driver in the history of North American harness racing to reach the winner's circle 10,000 times. Tetrick--who is just weeks shy of his 36th birthday--shattered the previous record: Walter Case, Jr. was 40 when he earned his 10,000th victory in 2001 at Northfield Park. Tetrick used inside position with Earl Variera to protect the third spot on the first turn before brushing to clear Thundering Lover (Ãyvind Hegdal) and Photo Bomber (Tony Morgan) before reaching the midpoint of the one-mile race in :58.2. The three-year-old son of Explosive Matter shrugged off a first-over bid from Callmeboomer (Pat Berry) on the far turn before edging away by a driven 2-1/4 lengths in 1:58.2. Born into a harness racing family, Tetrick started driving at county fairs in 1998 before making his pari-mutuel debut at Fairmount Park, just outside of St. Louis, in 2000. He has since gone on to win multiple high-profile races, including five Meadowlands Paces, eighteen Breeders Crown events, and the 2012 Hambletonian with Market Share. Tetrick additionally holds the record for most wins in a single year, having won 1,189 races through 2007. His single-season purse earnings record of $19,734,781 in 2008 accounts for one of seven seasons in the last ten in which "The Bionic Man" has amassed over $15,000,000 in purses.

Robert Ginsburg's Sawbuck Hanover won the $35,000 Claiming pace with meet defending driver champion Corey Callahan in the bike winning the $22,000 purse event. Play The Field (McCarthy) and Reggiano (Morgan) were second and third respectively. On the undercard, Tetrick annexed a 1:52.3 victory with Baileys Rock N, the second win of the night for owner Rich Pollucci and trainer Jim King. The New Zealand-bred gelding is a four-year old Bettor's Delight-Baileys Pearl, now two-for-two in the USA. Howard Taylor's bred and owned Mentira, trained by Curtis Daniels and piloted by Ross Wolfenden were winners in $18,000 paces. As the horses lined up for the first race, Makenzie MC went down tossing driver Roger Plante to the ground and dragged him a short distance. The hurting driver was tended-to by the track medical crew and Plante was taken by ambulance to Kent General Hospital in Dover. He sustained cuts, scrapes and bruises and a hair line fracture. Tim Tetrick had a diving triple, Jim King won two training races. Enjoy live racing and good food at the Dover Downs Winners Circle Restaurant Buffet, each race day.
