East Rutherford, NJ -There have been a lot of questions regarding the older trotters and just who would assume command of the division. After Saturday night, Resolve answered all those questions and jumped to the head of the class, winning the TVG Free For All Trotting Championship in 1:51.4 for Ake Svanstedt. In similar fashion to his win in the final preliminary leg last week, Resolve moved to the lead shortly after the opening quarter, which was reached in 27 seconds by longshot DW's NY Yank. Once on the lead, Resolve was allowed to relax. The same could not be said for E L Titan who got caught in some traffic down the backstretch and ended up three wide, trotting toward the half mile. Tim Tetrick guided E L Titan to the first over position after racing three wide, crossing in front of Obrigado with The Bank in the outer flow. But Resolve was able to back the field down with a 29.3 second quarter, reaching the half-mile in 56.3. E L Titan, in the final start of his career was applying pressure, but Ake Svanstedt had plenty of horse in front of him and Resolve began to edge away, trotting past three-quarters in 1:25. The stretch drive was a mere formality as Resolve began to pour it on, winning by three lengths in the end, trotting a final quarter of 26.4 to complete the mile in 1:51.4.  "He's a very good horse," said owner/trainer Ake Svanstedt. "He is getting closer and closer to Sebastian K with every start. He is just a four year old beating the older horses, he should be really good next year." Obrigado held the runner-up position while Flanagan Memory rallied from last to be third. The win was the fourth of the season for Resolve. He finishes his four year old campaign with earnings of $706,938 this season. Resolve was trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt for owner Hans Enggren. Boston Red Rocks takes Govenor's Cup Going into the Breeders Crown Final, Boston Red Rocks wasn't on anyone's radar in terms of the two year old pacing championship. It is safe to say that over the past month, that has changed. Sent off as the even-money favorite, Boston Red Rocks was allowed to settle mid-pack while elimination winner, Big Top Hanover established the pace through an opening quarter in 27-seconds. When the field straightened away in the backstretch, driver Tim Tetrick popped the plugs and Boston Red Rocks unleashed his turn of foot and flew to the lead, reaching the half-mile in a sharp 55-seconds. The outer flow was slow to develop, but that didn't prevent the race favorite from sprinting a 27.3 third quarter, with the 8/5 second choice Big Top Hanover on his back. Into the stretch, Boston Red Rocks got separation on the field and reached for the line, holding off the other elimination winner Katies Rocker to win in a lifetime best 1:50.3. The win was the fourth in nine starts for the two year old son of Rocknroll Hanover. Tim Tetrick has been impressed with the colt over his past few starts. "He doesn't do his best work on the front end, it's really not where he wants to be," said Tetrick. "But, I knew I had to go forward off the gate. He really likes to chase horses though." Looking ahead to next year, Tetrick said the upside is there. "He can shoot for the skies next year." Boston Red Rocks is trained by Steve Elliot for owners Peter Blood and Rick Berks. Katies Rocker was second and Big Top Hanover held on to the show spot. by Darin Zoccali, for the Meadowlands  

DOVER, Del. --- With a good chance of winning half of the $100,000 purse, owner-trainer Chuck Perry saw Tim Tetrick did not have a drive in the final, gave him the drive and Tetrick and his Dream Away-March On In colt did the rest scoring a 1:52.4 victory Thursday in the first of four racing day's $100,000 DSBF Finals for Delaware-sired freshmen pacers and drivers. "I was happy to get the drive and I thought the colt was the best in the race," said Tetrick. Hail To The Master, driven by Art Stafford Jr., finished second ending a two-race prelim win streak. Power To Perform was third for Tony Morgan. John's Dream has now won five races in a row of his eight races with two seconds and with the win has banked $102,327 this year. "I was looking for a well-bred broodmare in foal at the Chick's Sale in Harrington," explained Perry. "She was 24-years old and carrying a Dream Away and when she dropped back home, he would be eligible for the Virginia stakes. I named for my young son, that's where John's Dream comes from. I knew he was well bred and because of her age, only had to pay $300 to buy her." Carter Racing Stable's namesake Rusty Carter, winner of last month's DSBF $100,000 Final at Harrington, had to settle for a win in the $20,000 DSBF consolation this time. Corey Callahan guided the altered son of Art Director-Rusty's Joy to his third win in seven starts for trainer Doug Lewis. JW Renegade (John MacKinnon) was a fast closing second in front of Double Miles (Vince Copeland), third. Corey Callahan and Tim Tetrick notched four wins during the card.

EAST RUTHERFORD - Saturday night harness racing at The Meadowlands featured the final $50,000 preliminary legs for the TVG Free For All Pacing and Trotting Championships, to be contested for $400,000 on next Saturday night. Resolve, fresh off his runner-up performance in the Breeders Crown, was established as the 6/5 betting choice in the TVG Free For All Trot and he did not disappoint. Resolve was sent straight to the lead and was able to establish a methodical pace, reaching the quarter in 28.3 before coasting to the half-mile in 58.2. E L Titan mounted a challenge as the field moved past the half-mile pole, but Resolve had plenty in reserve and sprinted through the final three eighths of a mile to win in 1:53.3 for trainer/driver Ake Svanstedt. E L Titan trotted well despite the first over trip and was able to land the runner-up spot with Melady's Monet third. For Resolve, the win marked the third of the season for the four year old by Muscle Hill. He is owned by Hans Enggren. Resolve A compact field of four contested the $50,000 TVG Free For All Pace after a pair of scratches. JK Endofanera was released as the 2/5 favorite and the William Haughton Memorial winner, Mach It So was sent off the 2-1 second choice. Neither of them made the lead as the Canadian, Arthur Blue Chip would establish the pace from his inside starting post, reaching the quarter in 27.2, before stealing a soft second quarter of 29.1. The cadence quickened into the far turn, but Arthur Blue Chip remained relatively unchallenged. Mach It So was riding the pocket as long as he could through three-quarters of 1:24.2 before ripping out of the pocket and launching a 25.3 final quarter to score in 1:50.1. Arthur Blue Chip held on for the runner-up spot while JK Endofanera hit his best stride late, but drifted in the stretch as a wide third. Mach It So is trained by Jeffrey Bamond Jr for Bamond Racing L.L.C. Tim Tetrick was the winning driver. It was the sixth win of the season for Mach It So and he is closing in on $1.2 Million in lifetime earnings. Mach It So Fall Final Four The eliminations for the Fall Final Four continued on Saturday as well. First on the card was a $20,000 elimination for the $413,000 Governor's Cup with a field of eight. Boston Red Rocks, the Breeders Crown winner, was sent off as the 4/5 favorite, but he was left with a lot of ground to make up into the stretch. Big Top Hanover did not face the same obstacle as he sat the pocket behind the lone speed of Spider Man Hanover through swift fractions of 28, 55 and 1:22.4, before pulling the pocket and sprinting to the lead late. Boston Red Rocks made up as much ground as he could, but could not catch the winner and had to settle for the runner-up spot. Spider Man Hanover saved the show spot after setting strong fractions. Pretty Boy Hill and Show The Fashion completed the five that advanced to the Final. Big Top Hanover The other Governor's Cup elimination was a wide open race on paper with a competitive and well-balanced field of eight. Katies Rocker grabbed the racetrack right off the gate and never looked back. Sent to the lead as the 4-1 second choice from post eight, Katies Rocker reeled off fractions of 27.2, 56.3 and 1:24.2 before turning home with the lead where he faced a still challenge up the pylons from Jk Will Power. The pair hit the wire together, but it was Katies Rocker who held on by the slimmest of margins, a nose. Ideal Rocky was third, followed by Autotune Hanover and Check Six who all qualified for the final. Katies Rocker The first $20,000 Valley Victory elimination went to Waitlifter K in a wire to wire upset for Tim Tetrick who said in a post race interview that "he has always had talent, sometimes he is good and sometimes he makes you scratch your head and tonight he was really good." Waitlifter K completed the mile in 1:54.1, a new lifetime mark for the Muscles Yankee colt. The winner is a homebred of Bob Key and is trained by Chuck Sylvester. Milligan's School, Marion Marauder, Mavens Way and Mikkeli Hanover also advanced to the $489,400 Valley Victory Final. Chuck Sylvester wasn't done, as his Matron winner, Dog Gone Lucky scored in the second elimination in 1:55.2. with Corey Callahan. Dog Gone Lucky trotted up after Lagerfeld as the field turned for home and set sail for the wire while opening up willingly. The trotter that really caught the eye in the stretch was Make Or Miss who was far back at the top of the stretch and simply exploded through the lane to the tune of 27.1 final quarter to finish a fast closing second. The final quarter was a full second faster than the next fastest last quarter, which belonged to the winner, Dog Gone Lucky. Lagerfeld, Taco Tuesday and Treasure Keys K completed the five headed to the Final. The winner is owned by Amy Lynn Stoltzfus and Charles Stansley. Live racing returns on Friday, November 20th. Featured on the program are the $200,000 TVG Mare Pacing and Trotting Championships as well as the Three Diamonds and Goldsmith Maid Finals. Post time is 7:00 P.M. Darin Zoccali

TORONTO - The Boston Red Sox didn't have a great year, but Boston Red Rocks knocked it out of the park Saturday night at Woodbine Racetrack in the $778,400 Breeders Crown for harness racing two-year-olds for colts and geldings. Posting the biggest upset of the night to that point in the card, Boston Red Rocks, driven by Tim Tetrick, emerged from far back in the stretch and finished furiously to post an impressive 2½ length victory in a lifetime best 1:51.3. It was the third victory in seven career starts for the son of Rocknroll Hanover. Owned by Peter Blood and Rick Berks, both of Florida, Boston Red Rocks had never finished worse than third. But he was basically overlooked because the focus going into the race was on Control The Moment, who had not lost in eight starts, and Racing Hill, which had won his last three. Control The Moment went postward at just under 9-10. Racing Hill was second in the wagering at 2-1. Boston Red Rocks placed second to Racing Hill in his elimination race last week, and if he was going to have any chance he'd need a good pace up front to use his finishing kick. It couldn't have worked out any better. Talk Show and Betting Line engaged in a heated battle for the early lead. Talk Show emerged on top following a :25.3 opening quarter, but Betting Line took over and led through a Breeders Crown record-setting half of :53.2. Racing Hill took over after three quarters in 1:22.1. But heading into the stretch Betting Hill had a half-length lead over Racing Hill. It looked promising for Racing Hill, bred and owned by Tom Hill of England, but the Roll With Joe colt driven by Brett Miller was having trouble clearing, setting it up for Control The Moment, driven by Randy Waples. It looked as if the colt would move seamlessly into the lead, but he lacked the finish he displayed in his previous races. It was a matter at that point which horse would emerge from the back of the pack. Boston Red Rocks became the one. At the top of the stretch, he was sixth, five lengths back of the lead, seemingly out of it. But at the wire, he was so much the best. Asked when he knew he had it won, Tetrick jokingly said at the end. "My horse had a nice little sneaky run last week and I felt if the fractions were fair I could have a shot and he really finished well," Tetrick said. Tetrick drove the colt for the first time the week before and liked the effort. "I really liked him, he's very smart, great to drive," he said. "He's push-button and it worked out tonight. I tried to stay as close as I could (at the start), but when I saw Corey (Callaghan) being aggressive with (Talk Show), he's pretty aggressive when he gets on his way. I just wanted to be on the outside in the flow and I got led up good enough and my horse charged well." Backers of Boston Red Rocks were rewarded. The 18-1 long shot paid $38.90, $15.90, $11.20. Big Top Hanover, let go at 33-1, placed second and paid $25.50 to place and $14.30 to show. Nvestment Bluechip, another 33-1 long shot, placed third and paid $16.20. The exacta paid $447.30. The trifecta paid a whopping $7,402.00. With the win, Boston Red Sox collected $389,220 and raised his lifetime earnings to $468,743. By Perry Lefko

Vernon, N.Y. -- A quartet of $10,000 Kindergarten Classic preliminary events headlined Friday (October 23) evening's harness racing trotting program at Vernon Downs, and driver Tim Tetrick made the absolute best of both his drives on the card.   In the evening's eighth race, Tetrick took his time with Tony Alagna trainee Double Exposure ($3.90), commencing a first-over bid on the backstretch en route to a three-length triumph over Sweet Ashley T (Homer Hochstetler) and pacesetter Hollywood Hill (John Campbell). The 2-year-old Donato Hanover filly captured her third career win in as many starts in 1:55.1, edging away from her competition in similar fashion to two prior outings at The Red Mile.   "The Intimidator" completed his double with the Chuck Sylvester-trained Dog Gone Lucky ($2.50) in the 10th event, employing a drastically different tactic with the 2-year-old son of Lucky Chucky. Dog Gone Lucky dueled early with Southern Palms through a :26.4 initial quarter, working to the fore before rating a 1:00.3 middle half and subsequently scampering clear of his four rivals for a decisive 5-length win. Southwind Flash (Jim Marohn, Jr.) rallied into second, and Labatt Hanover (David Miller) flattened off the far turn yet still held third.   Earlier Kindergarten Classic events were taken by Celebrity Express ($4.20, John Campbell, 1:59.1) and Legal Lady ($88.00, Jan Johnson, 1:55). Celebrity Express took charge in his split after stalking a :30 initial quarter, backing down the middle half before using a stout :27.3 closing sectional to hold clear of Brownie Hanover in deep stretch.   The speed mark of the evening among the freshmen belonged to Legal Lady, who at 43-1 was also the highest-priced winner of the night. The daughter of Deweycheatumnhowe worked first-over through the far turn to wear down pacesetter Radiant Beam (Jim Marohn, Jr.), digging in late to stave off a late charge from Lookin Sharp (Corey Callahan) for the upset victory.   The top point-earners through this year's Kindergarten Classic preliminary events will contest a pair of rich finals next Saturday evening, October 31.   Live racing returns to Vernon Downs on Saturday (October 24, 2015), with the first of 11 races due off at 6:45 p.m. Eastern time.   by James Witherite, Vernon Downs

Wakizashi Hanover turned in a sharp tune-up for the Breeders Crown when he won effortlessly in Tuesday's Keystone Classic at the harness racing meeting at The Meadows. Yankee Bounty took the other division of the $69,750 stake for 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers. Wakizashi Hanover ranks third among all North American Standardbreds in seasonal earnings, and he's seventh in the current Hambletonian/Breeders Crown poll. While he's used to racing for richer purses, trainer Joann Looney-King said the owners of the Dragon Again-Western Gesture gelding -- the principals of Tri County Stable -- deliberately picked the Keystone Classic for his final Breeders Crown prep. "This was what we did instead of qualifying -- $34,000 is better than nothing," she said. "The owners stuck with their schedule. He's done enough traveling. He's still 3, and we want him to last a while longer." In the Keystone Classic, Wakizashi Hanover controlled the mile for Tim Tetrick and scored in 1:51.1, 1-1/4 lengths ahead of My Hero Ron. Allbeef N Nobull earned show. With the victory, Wakizashi Hanover soared over $1.2 million in career earnings. "He looked good -- never popped the plugs," Looney-King said. "He's been putting in steps lately, but today he looked on his game. So we're ready." Yankee Bounty also prevailed on the front end, but he needed a late wake-up call from Yannick Gingras to complete the job. "It wasn't so much that he was tired, but he got a little lonely on the front," Gingras said. "He was by himself a long way and wanted some company." The pocket-sitting Badiou Hanover was second, beaten a head, while Cooperstown rallied for show. The Yankee Cruiser-Bootleg Yankee gelding, trained by Ron Burke for Yankee Bounty Partnership and Frank Chick, is having an unusual year, with $282,140 in earnings but only two victories. Gingras, for one, isn't disappointed. "He's raced good against a good crop of 3-year-olds," Gingras said. "He's been there all along. Not many wins, but the bottom line is the last column. That's what matters."   $89,800 Keystone Classic -- 3-Year-Old Colt & Gelding Trotters Chef Lee and Colbert each captured a division of Tuesday's companion feature, an $89,800 Keystone Classic for sophomore colt and gelding trotters. Chef Lee inherited the front when the leader, Mesmerized, broke stride near the quarter pole, and he made the most of it, digging in late to score in 1:54.4 -- matching his lifetime best -- for Mike Wilder and owner/trainer Norm Parker. Don't Mind Me was second, a head back, with Suit And Tie third. "The lead was where I wanted to be, although Mike always likes to take it easy on the horse," Parker said. "I know he fights hard on the front end." The late Rex Parker, longtime Standardbred owner, bequeathed Chef Lee to his nephew Norm, and the Cantab Hall-Summer Savory gelding has been the gift that keeps on giving, pushing his career bankroll to $192,614 . Parker said his final start this year will be in the Circle City at Hoosier Park. Colbert had little trouble disposing of his competition, grabbing the lead early for Tetrick and rolling to victory in 1:54.4, fastest of his career. The first-over New Castle was second, 1-1/2 lengths in arrears, while Boots N Chains completed the ticket. "I drove him for the first time his last race, and he got locked in and pretty grabby," Tetrick said. "I was hoping I could race him again and draw a spot where I could cut it. I thought he'd go a pretty big mile, and he did." Ake Svanstedt conditions Colbert, a son of Cantab Hall-Domestic Diva who vaulted over $100,000 in lifetime earnings, for Courant AB and Knutsson Trotting. In the $16,500 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot, Barn Girl -- recently acquired privately for Burke by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura -- returned instant dividends when she shot the Lightning Lane for Dave Palone to defeat Unefoisdansmavie by 3 lengths in 1:54.1, with Whata Donato third.

The first of two divisions for the $220,000 Bluegrass Stakes 3-year-old colt trot at the harness racing meeting at The Red Mile went to Crazy Wow off a pocket trip in 1:55.4.   He took control through a :28.2 first quarter, but soon yielded to challenger and 4-5 favorite The Bank.   The Bank went on to set fractions of :57.3 and 1:27 before Crazy Wow readied to pounce out of the pocket.   Once out and moving in the stretch, Crazy Wow slid up to The Bank and past him after the eighth pole, advancing to victory over the favorite, Crescent Fashion, and Classic Venture.   Owned by Our Horse Cents Stables, Jerry and Theresa Silva Stables, and Deo Volente Farms, trained by Ron Burke, and driven by Tim Tetrick, Crazy Wow collected the 12th win of his career, earning $977,415.   The son of Crazed out of the Mr Vic mare No Pan No Gain paid $4.00 to win.   "Timmy [Tetrick] did a good job," Ron Burke said. "He could've gotten a bad spot, but Trond [Smedshammer on Donatomite] was not leaving him [out and parked] and just held his position. He [Tetrick] got in behind Yannick and out-tripped him."   "They [Our Horse Cents Stables, Jerry and Theresa Silva Stables, and Deo Volente Farms] bought him after his two-year-old season and, actually, he's been a surprise," Burke also said. "I thought he was a good horse, but he's been a little bit better than a good horse.   They're [the owners] are going to supplement him to the [Kentucky] Futurity next week, and then they're going to supplement him to the Breeders Crown, so he's going to get an opportunity to prove he is the best or one of the best."   "That [Crazy Wow supplementing] pretty much cements her into the [Kentucky] Filly Futurity," Burke said in regards to Mission Brief racing next week. "It seems stupid to race against your own money when you're supplementing one in, so she'll race against the fillies and then move on to the Breeders Crown."   Muscle Diamond defeated the 1-5 favorite Uncle Lasse in the second division of the Bluegrass, charging from the back of the field to a 1:56 victory.   The pace was set by Southwind Mozart, putting up fractions of :29.1, :58.2, and 1:27.3 before a challenge came from Uncle Lasse, who began his first-over move at the half.   He edged by leader Southwind Mozart in the stretch, but was soon confronted by Muscle Diamond towards the center of the course.   Uncle Lasse failed to trot with Muscle Diamond, finishing second to the 3-1 second choice. Honor And Serve was third.   Paying $8.80 to win, the colt by Muscle Hill out of the Lindy Lane mare Windylane Hanover collected the sixth win of his career, earning $502,459.   He's owned by Charles Keller III, Charles Keller IV, E. Bittle, and trainer Brett Bittle, and driven by John Campbell.   "It [the trip] worked out well. I was within striking range at the head of the stretch, and he kicked home the best he has in quite a long time," John Campbell said.   Ray Cotolo

WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 30, 2015 -- Newborn Sassy extended her winning streak to six with an effortless victory in Wednesday's $93,800 Keystone Classic at The Meadows. Cut And Paste captured the other division of the event for harness racing freshman filly pacers, giving Tim Tetrick a stake sweep. Although Newborn Sassy began her career with a pair of losses, Tetrick was aboard for her debut and was impressed. "She's the top 2-year-old pacing filly that I've driven this year," Tetrick said. "We liked her all along. First time I sat behind her, I thought she had talent but was a little green. She's really come along well." Since then, the daughter of Western Ideal-Sass Newton has won every outing, taking her mark of 1:51.1 in a PA Sites Stake at The Meadows. In the Keystone Classic, she coasted home on the lead in 1:53.1, downing Catharsis by 7-1/4 lengths, with Vorst third. Jim King, Jr., who conditions Newborn Sassy and owns with CC Racing, said she remains eligible for the Matron, which, for the first time, will limit its field to the top money winners. "I'm not sure if she'll go. You don't know who'll go on and who'll win what," King said. "I'd hate to train her for five weeks and be Also Eligible." Cut And Paste cruised on the front end in 1:54.4 after Tetrick gave her a leisurely 58:3 front half on the point. "We got good fractions, and my filly really sprinted off," Tetrick said. "She's really quick off the wings and really handy." The daughter of Well Said-On The Arm scored in 1:54.4, 3-1/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Danika P. She Devil Rusty rallied for show. Linda Toscano conditions Cut And Paste for Stake Your Claim Stable, Camelot Stable and Fred Wallace. $100,798 Keystone Classic -- 2-Year-Old Filly Trotters In the co-feature on Wednesday's program, Hot Curry, Casey T and Twice A Night -- nary a favorite among them -- each took a split. A nine-race maiden entering the stake, Hot Curry had little trouble overtaking the 1-6 selection, Lookin Sharp, in the lane and prevailing in 1:57.2 for Dave Palone, trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Crawford Farms, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Larry Karr. My Pink Bike followed the winner's cover for second, 1-3/4 lengths back, while Lookin Sharp saved show. "She's actually a sweetheart, but she's had bad luck here and there," Palone said of the daughter of Muscle Massive-Spiceberry Hanover. "I thought the race would play out for her. Speed hasn't been any good, and I thought she'd be able to tag along behind the favorite." Casey T blew by Windowshopper in the stretch and defeated her by 2 lengths for Brian Zendt in a career-best 1:58.1. Grace N Vanity earned show. The win marked a return to form for the homebred daughter of Madison River-Gia after a series of break-marred efforts. "It was mostly soreness," said Todd Rooney, who trains Casey T and owns with Foge McKeever and Elden Thompson. "She was right on the edge of needing to be shut down, but we were able to keep her patched together. When we got her good, we decided to keep her going for this race. I think she'll be a nice 3-year-old. I have a Chapter Seven half-brother to her going to the Lexington Sale." When Twice A Night jumped it off at the start, she figured to be racing for education only. But the race turned into a break-fest -- 1-5 favorite Twill Be Done made an unforced error on the lead; Ginny Weasley did the same after inheriting the lead -- Twice a Night was back in the hunt. She took maximum advantage, triumphing in 1:59.2. Candelaria Deo was second, 1/2 length in arrears, while I Luv Blackhawkred completed the ticket. "She was not herself today," said winning driver Jackie Ingrassia, who owns the daughter of Donato Hanover-Working Girl with Arden Homestead Stable. "She was very antsy and tough in the paddock, kicking the walls. I didn't think she would get back in the race at all. Even without the breakers, I think she would have been right there because she was loaded with trot finishing." Frank Ingrassia trains Twice A Night. Friday's card at The Meadows features a pair of Keystone Classics for 2-year-old colts and geldings -- a $122,800 trot and a $108,000 pace. First post is 12:55 PM. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

With Wiggle It Jiggleit idle following his sensational two-heats triumph Thursday's (Sept. 24) winning the prestigious Little Brown Jug at the harness racing meeting in Delaware, Ohio, Wakizashi Hanover journeyed to Hoosier Park on Saturday (Sept. 26) to take on the highly acclaimed Indiana local hero Freaky Feet Pete in the $110,250 Jenna's Beach Boy pace. It was not only a contest between two of the top three rated pacers in North American but also a race between the Tetrick brothers Tim versus Trace. Both siblings are listed among the top 10 race-winning drivers this season. Wakizashi Hanover is one of two horses to defeat Wiggle It Jiggleit while the brilliantly fast Freaky Feet Pete finished second earlier in the year to Wiggle It Jiggleit. On this occasion, Wakizashi Hanover, driven by Tim Tetrick, overtook front-pacing Freaky Feet Pete and younger brother Trace Tetrick, deep in the stretch by a quarter-of-a-length in 1:48.4. "He's a wonderful horse," said trainer Joanne Looney-King, of the Jim King Stable of Harrington, Del. "He just is the horse of a lifetime. I cannot say enough good things about [Wakizashi Hanover] on the racetrack or in the barn." A three-year-old altered son of son of Dragon Again and Western Gesture Wakizashi Hanover has reached millionaire status, now one of three $1-million winners. During his sophomore campaign he has won the $350,000 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes final, a $35,000 division of the Liberty Bell series, finished second in the $500,000 Battle of Brandywine, and third in the $405,000 Carl Milstein Memorial as well as a third in the $706,000 Meadowlands Pace final. Wakizashi Hanover, owned by Tri County Stable, has now won nine races with three seconds and two thirds in 15 starts this season. Lifetime in 21 races, he has 11 wins, six seconds and two thirds in his career and won more than $1.1 million in purses. On the same program at Hoosier Park, the great trotting mare Bee A Magician, the 2013 Horse of the Year, showed her prowess scoring a 1:53 victory in the Centaur Trotting Classic. The now five-year-old scored an easy victory coming from fifth on the final turn to overtake and overpower her rivals winning comfortably by 1-1/2 lengths. Finishing second was Wind Of The North, trained and co-owned by Daryl Bier of Smyrna, Del. Bee A Magician who has won 41 of 61 career races has a huge race coming up Oct. 10 afternoon, the Yonkers International Trot. Marv Bachrad

ANDERSON, Ind.-September 26, 2015 - Although all harness racing fans, participants and bettors were still assessing the impact of Wiggle It Jiggleit's sensational triumph in Thursday's (Sept. 24) rendition of the Little Brown Jug, the anticipation for Wakizashi Hanover's trip to Hoosier Park on Saturday (Sept. 26) to take on local hero Freaky Feet Pete in the $110,250 Jenna's Beach Boy was at fever pitch. It was a contest of brother versus brother, one of two horses to defeat Wiggle It Jiggleit and the measuring stick for just how talented 'Pete' truly is. Unfortunately, despite being valiant in defeat, Pete hit the wire second while Wakizashi Hanover took home the trophy, purse and blanket by a quarter of a length in 1:48.4. "If I would have had the nine hole and Trace and his horse would have six the hole, the result could very well have been much different," said winning driver, Tim Tetrick, in the winners' circle. "Pete is a very talented horse and I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. I also know my brother's driving capabilities. I know if I had the nine I would have to gun right out there just like he did. You aren't left with any other option. This horse, though, has little bit of everything. He has enough gate speed to leave to put himself in a good position and then has high speed when called upon to supply it. He paced the fastest last quarter of the night to win this. I'm very happy with his effort." There was certainly no drama, as the showdown in the 12th race commenced right when the field took their noses off the gate. Trace Tetrick drove right to the lead and dared Wakizashi Hanover and his sibling to go with them. Freaky Feet Pete traveled his first panel in 26.2 with is rival sitting in the garden spot directly behind him. After a half in 54.2 and three quarters in 1:22, Freaky Feet Pete was pulling away from Wakizashi Hanover at the top of the lane, but his competitor had plenty more to give. The North American Cup victor wore down the leader late in the homestretch for a score in his first appearance over the Anderson oval. "He's a wonderful horse," said conditioner Joanne Looney-King, of the son of Dragon Again and Western Gesture. "He just is the horse of a lifetime. I cannot say enough good things about him on the racetrack or in the barn." His share of the purse money boosted Wakizashi Hanover to millionaire status during a sophomore campaign that included wins in the $350,000 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes final, a $35,000 division of the Liberty Bell, a second in the $500,000 Battle of Brandywine, a third in the $405,000 Carl Milstein Memorial and another third in the $706,000 Meadowlands Pace final. Wakizashi Hanover, who is owned by Tri County Stable, paid $3.80 for those who backed him, while Freaky Feet Pete offered $2.10 and third place finisher Vague Traces paid $5.60. The winner's record now stands at 15-9-3-2 for the season and 21-11-6-2 for his career. He has banked more than $1.1 million. The competition between Wakizashi Hanover and Freaky Feet Pete was merely one component of an outstanding 14 race card with plenty of Grand Circuit action, such as Hoosier Park's most lucrative event for the diagonally gaited in the $210,000 Centaur Trotting Classic, the $207,000 Kentucky Stallion Management Stakes, and the $150,250 Elevation Pace. It was a short field comprised of only five 2-year-old trotting fillies, but Sunset Glider swiftly disposed of her rivals in the first division of the Kentucky Stallion Management Stakes (race 2). In rein to Yannick Gingras, the daughter of Cantab Hall and the Yankee Glide mare Highland Glider, who is conditioned by Jimmy Takter and owned by Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz and Al Liebfied, hit the finish line a head in front for her second win in five career parimutual trips. Her record now stands at 6-2-2-2 and the win lifted her earnings to more than $100,000 while tripping the timer in 1:56.1. She paid $7.20 to win with Woman's Will ($2.10) and Wildflower ($3.20) rounded out the trifecta. Topville Cadillac illustrated she is a force to be reckoned with beyond the Indiana Sire Stakes program, as Hoosier State's champion daughter of Rockin Image and the Electric Yankee mare Topville Cyberwave, went to the front and held off all challenges to lower her own track record and lifetime mark to 1:52 in her $125,900 division of the Kentucky Stallion Management Stakes. Piloted by Tyler Smith for her co-owner and trainer Alvin Miller, the most expensive yearling purchase ($95,000) at last year's Hoosier Classic Sale is a half-sister to fellow Indiana champs Radar Contact, Always About Katey and Sapphire Martini. Also owned by Ted Comerford and Twila Hart, Smith placed this 2-year-old pacing filly right on the lead in the evening's 7th race where she led the field through fractions of 27.3, 55.4, 1:24.3 prior to entering the winners' circle. Although she was finishing swiftly at the end, Darlinonthebeach could not reel in Topville Cadillac who paid $5.60 to win and had to settle for second place. She paid $3.20 and third place finisher Lyons River Pride provided $2.10 to bettors. "I hope I didn't sound silly when I said earlier she was still green and there is still so much more for her to give," Smith said. "She really is still learning though and it seems like there is no bottom to her. I did drive her one sister, Always About Katey and you would have to push on her to do her work, but mentally she was sharper. This filly is very professional, she just needs to learn more. I think she is a very exciting horse and I'm thrilled to be driving her." Next up was Call Me Queen Be in her $127,150 division of the Kentucky Stallion Management Stakes. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere and the Western Terror mare Preppy Party Girl was sent off the post time favorite at 9-2 in the ninth race. Steered by Scott Zeron and trained by Ross Crogan, the filly, who is owned by Let It Ride Stables and Dana Parham, was content to allow the other members of the field to do the heavy lifting as Can't Touch This led the way with fractions of 27.1, 56.4 and 1:26.3 before Call Me Queen Be exploded in mid-stretch along the pylons to win by a length in 1:54.4. She paid $3.00 for the victory, while Yankee Moonshine provided $3.00 for her second place finish and JK Fannie yielded $4.40 for her third. "Not many 2-year-olds would come up on the inside the way she did when they only have a few races under their belt," Zeron said. "She is just absolutely push button to drive though and two fingers. She does get worked up for the races, as she just about flipped over the in paddock before coming out on the track and she won't stand in the winners' circle, but she has a lot of ability. I think she will only improve with time." He was sent off the 3-1 selection in the $150,150 Elevation (Race 11), and American Passport illustrated why he finished second in his Metro Pace elimination earlier this season. The Tony Alagna pupil, who was driven by Scott Zeron, races as a homebred for Brittany Farms and is also owned by Alagna as well as Riverview Racing. It was 81-1 outsider Allie's Cruiser who established all the early splits of 27.2, 56.2 and 1:52.2. Just when it appeared to be bombs away, the faltering leader was overwhelmed by first Manhattan Beach, then Mindtrip and ultimately American Passport. The son of American Ideal and the Four Starzzz Shark mare Star Of The Show, tripped the timer in 1:52.2 for his maiden breaking victory. His resume now stands at 7-1-3-0 and he has collected $107,546. The colt was headed to Lexington after cooling out from tonight's performance and paid $8.00 to win. He was followed home by Mindtrip ($9.40) and Big Top Hanover ($6.00). "We always knew this colt had a tremendous amount of ability," Alagna said. "He trained down excellent and we were not surprised he was second in the Metro elim. Then he drew the 10 hole for the final and he has experienced some other things that are part of bad racing luck. But he also wanted to always go fast and kind of do what he wanted to do out there. He has really started to understand what is job is and you can rate him now so he can carry that speed. We are very excited about this win and look forward to racing him in Lexington. We are not sure whether he will race once or twice, that depends on how he does, but then it's the Breeders Crown after Kentucky." Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will continue on Tuesday, September 29 with a 14-race card that is set to begin at 5:15 p.m. Following a Tuesday through Saturday schedule, live racing will be conducted through November 14.

My horse felt really good and he’s coming back into form.” “We’ve had this horse since he was a 2-year-old and he’s always been a good horse,” said trainer Jeff Bamond Jr.. whose stable is based at White Birch Farm in New Jersey.  “The trip worked out for him. He’s always been kind of a trip horse.”  This year's Quillen field was comprised of winners of more than $12 million lifetime, more than $7 million of that from perennial pacing champion Foiled Again.  The race is named in the honor of the late Delaware legislator who devoted his life to public service and was a regular at the racetrack. Quillen was also a long-time board member of Harrington Raceway and Delaware State Fair and always fought for the best interests of the horsemen  Trainer Wayne Givens had a training triple with Bad Boy Matt, I'm Mystified and Papa Ray, all driven by Allan Davis, who had four wins.

Two-year-old filly pacers headlined a solid harness racing card at Harrah's Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon (Sept. 20), in three divisions of the Liberty Bell Series, each going for a purse of $35,000. Cc Racing and Jim King's Newborn Sassy won her fifth straight in the first division. The daughter of Western Ideal maintained pocket position through out much of the race, drafting behind the speed of Ron Burke trainee Yankee Moonshine (Gingras). Newborn Sassy (Tetrick) vacated the pocket at the head of the lane, going on to win by a length in 1:53.1. Skinny Dipper (McCarthy) rallied on for second. The winner returned $2.40. Geoffrey Lyons Mound's Lyons River Pride (Gingras) was game in victory in division two. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere took the lead shortly after the start, and held off the pocket-sitter Sail To The Beach (Dube) to win by a neck in a thrilling stretch drive. It was the second career win for Lyons River Pride ($4.20) who paced the mile in 1:53. She is trained by Ron Burke. Division three saw favorite Shezarealdeal (Mar. Miller) using a well timed move in the stretch to win. The daughter of Western Ideal sat off the early speed duel, emerging three wide at the top of the stretch to sweep past winning by a length in 1:52.3.
