WILKES-BARRE, PA -- Keystone Riptide recorded her third win in her last four starts, quarter-moving to the lead and going on to a 1:52.4 victory in the $17,500 distaff pacing feature Tuesday night at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.   Driver Marcus Miller brushed with the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere past the 27.1 quarter, then put up midsplits of 56 and 1:24.1. The winner of $260,800 stayed strong in the lane to win by two lengths over closing Forever Liza, with favored Sail To The Beach having to settle for third behind the Randy Bendis-trained mare; Bendis is also co-owner with the eight-time 2018 winner with Thomas Pollack.   In a thrilling internal battle that lasted the entire week, Anthony Napolitano notched five winners on the Tuesday card while his brother George took down two heats, making their "final score" for the four-day race week Anthony Nap 16, George Nap 15. The Napolitanos thus won 31 of the 53 races conducted during the week -- which means that some combination of their red and white colors was seen in the winners circle an extraordinary 58% of the time this week!   Speaking of "extraordinary," as the saying goes, "It all comes down to the Breeders Crown," and the Breeders Crown now comes to the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, bringing the cream of the harness racing crop to northeast Pennsylvania.   The only Friday night card of the year, at 7 p.m., will see ten elimination races for two-year-olds; on Saturday starting at 7, all fourteen races will be Crown elimination for three-year-olds and for the older set. Those advancing out of their eliminations will be back a week from Saturday, October 27, for the $6,000,000 2018 Breeders Crown Championship Card, with the Pocono action on the huge night beginning at 5:30 p.m.   From the PHHA/Pocono Downs    

It took only three nights for Northfield Park's newest wager, the 20¢ Northfield Single Six (a single combination Pick-6) to be solved. One better cashed in for $6,426.68. The bet offers a low 14 percent takeout rate and began Saturday (Oct. 13). The 20¢ wager is expected to offer handicappers large jackpots by carrying over 50 percent of its nightly pool until it is solved by a single combination. The wager is offered nightly in Race-9. Other multi-race wagers will be shifted so that the nightly Pick-5 will begin in race 2 and the Pick-3 will start in races five, eight and 12. by Ayers Ratliff, for Northfield Park

WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 16, 2018 -- Wind Of The North, a speedy, rugged and durable trotter throughout his career, vaulted over $1 million in lifetime earnings with an in-hand victory in Tuesday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. The 8-year-old Cantab Hall-Talk To The Wind gelding has won 47 of his 160 lifetime starts and banked $1,005,098. Wind Of The North retook the lead with a quarter-pole move for Aaron Merriman and owner/trainer Bill Bercury and had little trouble turning aside the first-over bid of Call For Justice. He scored in 1:55.4, 2-1/2 lengths better than early leader PL Jerico, with Cantab Lindy third. Wind Of The North took his 1:51 mark at Pocono at 4 and enjoyed his most productive years in 2015-2016, when he collected $489,352. In 2015, he won the Chip Noble at Scioto Downs and was second in the Cutler Memorial at the Meadowlands. Tony Hall piloted three winners on the 13-race card. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

Plainville, MA --- Wisely avoiding an early front-end fracas, Jericho brushed late in a slick steer by his owner to win the $13,000 "Old North Church" trotting feature at Plainridge Park on Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 16). Shorething Fashion (Nick Graffam) got off the gate the best, flying to the top before the first turn. But Tag Up And Go (Mitchell Cushing) was out and rolling and took the lead at the quarter in :27.1. He then surrendered it immediately to Dial A Chic (Joe Di Stefano) in front of the stands before coming back to retake the top as they headed to the half. As they passed the half in :56.1 Shorething Fashion had pulled from third and was now challenging Tag Up And Go for the lead once again. All this time Jericho (Robert Kenney) was watching the race from last. With three horses now in the outer flow as the race progressed up the backside, Jericho pulled from eighth and trotted up to be fourth-over at the three-quarters and immediately tipped three-deep. With Shorething Fashion opening up a two length lead around the far turn, Jericho was trotting up a storm and passing horses like pylons. At the top of the stretch Jericho engaged Shorething Fashion and the two trotted in-sync to the wire where Jericho got the nod by a head in 1:56.1. It was the second win in the last three starts and the fifth win of the year for Jericho ($10.40) who now has pocketed $49,991 for owners Linda and Robert Kenney and the Di Stefano and Son Stable. John Di Stefano trains the winner. In the co-featured $13,000 "Abigail Adams" pace for fillies and mares, Twist Of Fate (Jimmy Whittemore) led the first quarter before settling into a two-hole trip behind Angel Or Terror (Drew Campbell) until the top of the stretch. There she came out to challenge down the lane and outpaced Angel Or Terror to the wire to win in 1:53.1. Let It Ride Stable acquired Twist Of Fate ($16.80) in a private purchase on September 26 and their investment has paid immediate dividends. This was her second win in only three starts since then and the time was just two-fifths off her lifetime mark. Mitchell Cushing led all drivers with three wins on the day followed by Drew Campbell and Jimmy Whittemore who each had two. The Massachusetts Sire Stakes (MASS) return to Plainridge Park on Monday (Oct. 22) and Tuesday (Oct. 23) with the third leg for both 2- and 3-year-olds of both gaits and sexes. The MASS finals will be held on Tuesday (Oct. 30). Racing resumes at Plainridge Park on Thursday (Oct. 18) with post time at 2 p.m. By Tim Bojarski, for the Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts

Cranbury, NJ --- Been there, done that. It could be the slogan for Saturday's (Oct. 20) Breeders Crown eliminations for 3-year-olds and older horses at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Eleven former Breeders Crown champions will be in action Saturday, led by two-time winners Hannelore Hanover, Ariana G, and Pure Country. A 12th former champ -- McWicked, who claimed his trophy at age 3 in 2014 -- will advance directly to the Open Pace final because eliminations were unnecessary. Another winner from 2014, Pinkman, who was 2 when he captured his Crown, also is back for another try in the Open Trot. Completing the list of former champions are Broadway Donna, Call Me Queen Be, Emoticon Hanover, Fiftydallarbill, Manchego, Stay Hungry, and Youaremycandygirl. Ariana G, Broadway Donna, and Emoticon Hanover all are in the Mare Trot. The connections of trotting mare Hannelore Hanover opted to face the boys, as they did in 2017, in the Open Trot. The only other division with multiple previous champions is the Mare Pace, with Pure Country and Call Me Queen Be. Talent is not limited to past winners. Divisional money-leaders Atlanta, Courtly Choice, Crystal Fashion, Kissin In The Sand, Marion Marauder, and Shartin N also were among the 106 horses entered Tuesday for Saturday's eliminations. History's fastest trotter, Homicide Hunter, New Zealand's two-time Horse of the Year Lazarus N, and International Trot champion Cruzado Dela Noche add to the star power. Kissin In The Sand will not race Saturday. Her connections accepted a bye to advance directly to the final for 3-year-old filly pacers. Also accepting a bye were the connections of Baron Remy. One elimination will be contested, with the top seven finishers from a nine-horse field joining Kissin In The Sand and Baron Remy. Eliminations for 2-year-olds were drawn Monday and will be raced Friday. A total of 177 horses entered the Breeders Crown. Last year, the number of entries was 166. Post time for Friday and Saturday is 7 p.m. (EDT). All finals, with purses totaling $6 million, will be Saturday (Oct. 27) at Pocono. Elimination winners, in an order determined by lot, draw for post positions one through five for the finals. The draw for the $421,000 Open Pace will be Tuesday. The eight-horse field for the final is All Bets Off, Dealt A Winner, Donttellmeagain, Filibuster Hanover, Lazarus N, McWicked, Rockin Ron, and Western Fame. Lazarus N was supplemented to the event for $50,000. Following is a look at Saturday's eliminations, which have purses of $25,000 apiece. 3-YEAR-OLD COLT AND GELDING PACE Returning champion Stay Hungry leads a group of 20 horses. Stay Hungry will attempt to become the first male pacer since Artiscape in 1997 and 1998 to win a Breeders Crown at both ages 2 and 3.

Also in the elims are Meadowlands Pace and Little Brown Jug winner Courtly Choice, North America Cup champion Lather Up (a $62,500 supplemental entry), Adios winner Dorsoduro Hanover, Max C. Hempt Memorial champ Springsteen, Carl Milstein Memorial winner Thinkbig Dreambig, and Tattersalls division winners American History and Grand Teton.

DAYTON, OH. - The Foiled Again Farewell Tour will make one final stop in Ohio when the richest standardbred of all time returns to Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway to race on Saturday night, November 10. A winner of 104 races and over $7.6 million, Foiled Again has made 21 starts in the Buckeye state during his illustrious career, including a pair of appearances in the Dayton Pacing Derby. "We're thrilled that the Foiled Again management team has agreed to showcase their popular champion at Dayton Raceway during the final two months of his racing career," said Vice President of Racing Mark Loewe. "Racing fans throughout North America have come to love Foiled Again due to his uncanny ability to race at the highest level for such a prolonged period of time. The sport certainly needs superstars who stay on the track long enough to gain a following. The Foiled Again Farewell Tour is a perfect example of what a great racehorse can do to promote harness racing to the masses." Foiled Again was born on May 8, 2004 in Englishtown, New Jersey and trained by Hermann Heitmann for the first two years of his career. Purchased by trainer Ron Burke in June of 2008, with eight wins and just over $100,000 on his card, the gelded son of Dragon Again has been a flag-bearer for the powerful Burke Brigade for a decade, winning another 96 races and earning an additional $7.5 million. A two-time champion of the George Morton Levy Memorial Series for free-for-all pacers, Foiled Again won an incredible 20 preliminary legs of the Levy throughout the years. He also captured a Breeders Crown, a Graduate Series championship, won both the Battle Of Lake Erie and the Bobby Quillen Memorial three times each, twice triumphed in the Hoosier Pacing Derby, as well as winning many other prestigious races including the TVG, Ben Franklin, American-National and Molson Pace. Foiled Again finished second, beat a scant nose in 1:49 by Clear Vision, in the inaugural Dayton Pacing Derby in 2014. A year later, he was fifth in the second edition of the Derby when State Treasurer lowered the track record to 1:48.4. That speed record lasted three years until it was lowered to 1:47.4 by Donttellmeagain winning the 5th annual Dayton Pacing Derby earlier this season. "We have been so blessed to have Foiled Again for the past ten years," said Mark Weaver, part-owner. "Ohio has been a huge part of Foiled Again's career. He made eight straight annual starts in the Battle of Lake Erie at Northfield, and participated in a couple Jim Ewart Memorials at Scioto Downs and Dayton Pacing Derbies at Hollywood Gaming. We are glad to have the opportunity to visit Ohio one last time with Foiled Again at Hollywood Dayton Raceway on November 10." Details on several promotions intended to enhance the Foiled Again Farewell Tour experience for the fans will be announced in the near future. From the media department at Dayton Raceway

  East Rutherford, NJ - At the request of the New Jersey Racing Commission The Meadowlands has submitted a revised 2019 live harness racing schedule application comprised of 76 dates with the addition of eight racing dates in September.   Monmouth Park has submitted an application for 20 Fall Thoroughbred dates at The Meadowlands, racing Friday & Saturday from October 4 through December 7.   The Meadowlands, in conjunction with the SBOA of NJ, continues to make every effort to secure a purse subsidy for 2019. If that purse subsidy should become a reality,   The Meadowlands would add $1 million from the sports betting proceeds and will attempt to work with the management and horsemen of Monmouth Park with the ultimate goal 83 live harness racing dates and the preservation of the fall stakes program.   With the subsidy at the discussed level of $20 million with $6 million of that directed to Meadowlands purses plus the $1 million from sports betting we should be able to increase overnight purses by 75% beginning in January as well as maintaining all of the existing stakes that we raced in 2018.   by Nick Salvi, for the Meadowlands

Kenny White Kenny White worked his way up the ladder from novice sports ticket writer to champion handicapper to CEO of Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC). White was also the VP of Games & Probability for Game Sports Network from 2014-17, an online daily fantasy sports engine. At 21, Kenny's exuberance earned him an entry-level ticket writing position in the legendary Santa Anita sports book on the Las Vegas Strip, where his talent for handicapping the NBA in particular soon became apparent. At the young age of 24, White's next stop was the Fremont Hotel and Casino in downtown Las Vegas, where he held the position of Sport Book Manager for two years. In 1988 Nevada Sports Executives was born, and for the next 15 years the company supplied some of the larger Las Vegas sports books with lines and information.

Along with a trio of noted local gaming attorneys, White purchased LVSC in November 2003, and his influence was almost immediately evident. LVSC dramatically improved its' technology and infrastructure, and its' clients then had access to the individual game lines made by all eight of the company's oddsmakers. Finally, in an example of his typically unwavering optimism and penchant for integrity, one of White's ultimate goals for LVSC was to actually work in conjunction with professional leagues and collegiate organizations to help protect the sanctity of games in any and all sports. Cantor Gaming purchased LVSC from White's group in November 2008. White stayed on with the Cantor Gaming for 18 months to ensure a smooth transition. Coming on board with Don Best in 2009 the ultimate goal has been to establish an unrivaled Fraud Detection/Prevention service for North American sports. Matthew B.

Cranbury, NJ --- With many divisions still in flux as to year-end honors, the connections of three of the top pacers in their respective groups each supplemented to their Breeder Crown event. The Breeders Crown Open events attracted the richest female pacer, 5-year-old mare Shartin N, whose 16 wins in 21 starts and bankroll of $820,861 made the $31,250 supplemental payment an easy decision for co-owners Richard Poillucci and Jo-Ann Looney-King. Jo-Ann's husband, Jimmy King Jr. trains the imported daughter of New Zealand stallion Tintin In America-Bagdarin. Another Down Under sensation, Lazarus N, was supplemented to the $400,000 Crown Open Pace to the tune of $50,000. The racing world has enjoyed heavyweight match ups featuring Lazarus N and McWicked, but Lazarus was scratched sick from their last meeting in Saturday's Dan Rooney Invitational by trainer Jimmy Taker to ensure he was in top form for the Crown. Lazarus N, owned by Taylor Made Stallions, has banked $400,245 in North America this year, with a two wins and three seconds in just five starts on this continent. Combined with his New Zealand earnings, he's made $689,861 for a hefty $3 million lifetime. Gary and Barbara Iles homebred sophomore pacing colt Lather Up emerged as the early season sensation, blasting a 1:48.1 mile in his North America Cup victory back in June. Trained by Clyde Francis and driven by Montrell Teague, Lather Up's consistent performance on the racetrack has resulted in a 14-11-0-1 slate and $768,612 in earnings. Regular entries for 3-year-old and up trotters and pacers are due by 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at the Pocono Downs race office. Two-year-old entries closed at 9:00 a.m. Monday and you can see the fields here: The contestants for the 12 Breeders Crown finals will be determined through elimination races, if needed, this Friday and Saturday night at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

Plainville, MA --- Jimmy Whittemore was all business at Plainridge Park on Monday afternoon (Oct. 15) and came away with four winners on the card including capturing both of the $16,000 pacing co-features with Major Leaguer and Bamski. In the Winners-Over handicap, Major Leaguer got a perfect pocket trip behind Delightful Offer N (Ron Cushing) who came in on a four-race win streak. The pair sat one-two until the head of the stretch when Delightful Offer N drifted off the pylons, allowing Major Leaguer a clear shot up the pegs. Whittemore pushed him as hard as he could and Major Leaguer just got the lead in the shadow of the wire to win by a nose in 1:53. It was the eighth win of the year for Major Leaguer ($11.20) who now has a career single-season high $63,640 earned in 2018. Jimmy Whittemore owns and Dennis Whittemore trains Major Leaguer. Then in the 6-year-old and under conditioned event Whittemore sent Bamski off the wings and led every step of the way. When the race hit the three-quarters in 1:25.3 Whittemore gave Bamski his head and he paced away effortlessly, opening up a five-length margin of victory in 1:54.1. Bamski ($15.00) is owned by Lester Gelardi Jr. and Anthony Passafaro and is trained by Monique Cohen. Rounding out the Whittemore Grand Slam was Moonpie (1:57.1, $9.60) and Princess Kay (1:55.4, $3.20). The Massachusetts Sire Stakes have the week off but will return on Monday (Oct. 22) and Tuesday (Oct. 23) next week with the third leg for both 2- and 3-year-olds of both gaits and sexes. The finals will be held on Tuesday (Oct. 30). Racing resumes at Plainridge Park on Tuesday (Oct. 16) with post time at 2 p.m. By Tim Bojarski, for the Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts  

WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 15, 2018 -- Hockey Hanover roared through the sloppy stretch and overtook his stablemate, Southwind Cobra, at the wire to capture Monday's feature at The Meadows, a $13,000 Conditioned Trot. Hockey Hanover trailed by 5 lengths into the final turn when he found another gear for Jim Pantaleano and downed Southwind Cobra by a length in a career-best 1:55.2. Explosive Leggs finished third. Ron Burke trains Hockey Hanover, who last year won both the Pennsylvania Stallion Series championship and the PA Fairs title, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and M1 Stable. The 3-year-old Explosive Matter-Hotentrot Hanover gelding lifted his lifetime bankroll to $146,469. Mike Wilder piloted three winners on the 13-race card while Greg Wright, Jr. fashioned a training/driving double. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows
