Come Get The Cash (Western Terror) has enjoyed plenty of success in her limited time competing at Saratoga Casino Hotel over the last few seasons. As a four year old in 2019, Come Get The Cash hit the board in twelve consecutive starts after making her local debut last summer. Trained at the time by John Macdonald, Come Get The Cash prevailed in her first try in the local Open in '19 and was the runner-up in the feature in four consecutive starts at one point. Upon her return from a lengthy layoff this season, the five year old mare rattled off three consecutive victories while competing at Vernon Downs and Pocono Downs before coming back to the Spa for the first time in 2020 to race in the $8,500 Fillies and Mares Open. Leading driver Billy Dobson picked up the catch-drive behind the now Brandy Wine-trained distaffer on Tuesday and the gutsy grinder toughed out a first-over victory in 1:55.3. Longshot Surreal Feeling (Jimmy Devaux) got the pocket trip in the feature behind Bontz N (Shawn Gray), the winningest of the ladies in the Fillies and Mares Open this season at the Spa, before coming on to finish second.   Come Get The Cash paid $12.80 to win in the mild upset and led an exacta with longshot Surreal Feeling second that returned $130.50. Bontz N earned the show spot to complete a $467.50 triple. Come Get The Cash has now won four straight for her owner-trainer Brandy Wine of Vernon, NY. After enjoying a four-win Monday afternoon, Billy Dobson piloted four more winners (along with three second-place finishers) on the Tuesday program. With no Wednesday evening card this week, live racing will resume next Monday afternoon with a first post time set for 12 Noon. by Mike Sardella, for Saratoga Raceway  

WILKES-BARRE, PA - Atta Boy Dan, the 2019 Horse of the Year at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, added another chapter to his already-burnished historical record when he went over a million dollars in lifetime earnings with a Monday afternoon victory at the mountain oval. George Napolitano Jr., his companion in so many victories last season, got the eleven-year-old Western Terror gelding into fourth early, then moved first-over against pacesetter Nine Ways. The pacesetter didn't make it easy for the greybeard, but Atta Boy Dan showed his class going on to a 1¼ length victory over that foe in 1:51.3 for owner Stephen Larkin and trainer Pete Pellegrino. The victory boosted the lifetime earnings of Atta Boy Dan to $1,002,084; he now has 76 career victories in 214 trips to the gate. The winningest U.S. harness horse in 2019 with 19 victories, Atta Boy Dan also set an unofficial record by being claimed out of fourteen straight starts, and 17 times in total at the Pocono meet last year, for a total of $670,000. Larkin and Pellegrino were the last of the claimants, and they have seen their horse win over $44,000 already this year despite the limited opportunities. George Napolitano Jr. finished with five winners on the card, including two each for trainers Pete Pellegrino and Tom Cancelliere. From the PHHA / Pocono Downs    

Harry Terror (Wally Hennessey) captures the $8,000 open handicap pace at Tioga Downs on Saturday (July 11). Jins Shark (Jim Taggart Jr,) was the first out of the gate. Harry Terror ($9.90) took over and hit the first quarter in :27.3 and went to the half in :56.3.

DAYTON, OH. - Fan Of Terror has been on a tear throughout the 2019 harness racing season. The 7-year-old son of Western Terror won the $17,500 Billy Hamm Memorial Open Pace at Hollywood Dayton Raceway on Saturday (Dec. 14) for his 17th triumph of the year and 27th on-the-board finish in 37 trips to post.   Driver John DeLong, leaving from the rail, chose to let even money favorite I'm A Big Deal (Brett Miller) clear to the pylons in front as the field sped through a speedy :26.1 opening quarter. Getting a pocket ride the rest of the way, DeLong and Fan Of Terror were boxed in through the middle two quarters as third choice My Hero Ron (Mike Oosting) was parked out and pressing the leader at the :54.1 and 1:22 half-mile and three-quarter-mile stations.   Finding clearance midway down the stretch, Fan Of Terror ground down I'm A Big Deal in the final strides to notch a 'head' decision in 1:50.4. Dispatched at 5-2 odds upon his return to the Open ranks after winning two top level condition events, Fan Of Terror has now earned $210,955 on the year racing exclusively in overnight races in Ohio and Indiana.   Trained for the past seven months by the brother combo of Ricky and Peter Redder, following brief successful stops in numerous stables early in the year as a top level claimer, owner Therl Hensley could never have imagined the ride he was about to embark on when he plucked him out of a race at Miami Valley for $30,000 in April.   The race honored the memory of popular local horseman Billy Hamm, who passed away recently, following a lengthy career as a caretaker and second trainer for numerous stables at or near old Lebanon Raceway. Family and friends of Hamm gathered in the winner's circle to present the commemorative blanket to Fan Of Terror and his connections.   Fan Of Terror     From Hollywood Dayton Raceway

Batavia, NY --- With the final weekend of harness racing at hand, the Upstate New York Chapter of the United States Harness Writers Association (UNY USHWA) has announced the horses of the meet for 2019. Pacer of the Meet-Back Is Black (Western Terror-Magic Moments) 1:52.1 ($242,850) Black Is Back started his year with a tag and ended up a top-class pacer. After being claimed for $20,000 at Saratoga Raceway back in May, Black Is Back found his way into the barn of trainer Mihajlo Zdjelar Jr. through a private purchase by his current owners Curtis Edholm and Mihajlo Zdjelar Sr. He made his first start at Batavia Downs in July, soon won the $12,500 Open I pace and then never looked back. For the season at Batavia, Black Is Back made 13 starts with five wins, two seconds and three thirds, all in Open I company and did not miss a single check the entire meet earning him $44,565 in the process. He finished in the money 77% of the time and his best win time at the Downs was 1:53.1. For the entire year Black Is Back has made 26 starts with 10 wins, four seconds and four thirds for $79,765 in purses with a mark of 1:52.2. Trotter of the Meet-Lougazi (Lou's Legacy-Winning Blade) 1:56.1 ($198,483) Lougazi made an encore performance this year as he was the 2018 Batavia Downs Trotter of the Meet. During the 2019 season in Genesee County, Lougazi made 16 starts with five wins, four seconds and three thirds and much like his side-wheeling counterpart Black Is Back, Lougazi made all his starts in Open I company as well. Lougazi had a very high 75% in the money average too and his $50,500 in purses was the highest amount earned by any overnight Standardbred competing at the meet this year. His career best year also included a new lifetime mark of 1:56.1 taken at Batavia in September. Overall in 2019 Lougazi has made 34 starts with nine wins, 10 seconds and five thirds with $94,000 in earnings. Mary Warriner owns Lougazi who is trained by Ryan Swift. Mare of the Meet-HP Sissy (Up The Credit-Monica Blue Chip) 1:52.1 ($367,629) HP Sissy was purchased privately in January by John and Sally Finnocchario and became the star of the Finnocchario's Dream Stable. She went on to win 13 races out of 37 starts and made $116,493 racing at tracks across New York State. In July HP Sissy made her first of 13 starts at Batavia Downs and ended up winning four Open I paces for fillies and mares, besides finishing second three times and third four more and made $41,375 in purses along the way. She wound up in the money 85% of the time which was the highest percentage of hitting the board of any horse racing at the meet. Her fastest win time at the Downs was also her seasonal mark; 1:53.3. Mike Ohol is the trainer of HP Sissy. All the connections of Black Is Back, Lougazi and HP Sissy will receive their awards in the Purple Haze Winner's Circle at Batavia Downs between races on Saturday (Dec. 14) during the UNY USHWA Night of Distinction. Post time for the first race is 6 p.m. By Tim Bojarski, for UNY USHWA

Dover, DE - Moments Of Joy and driver Victor Kirby were able to lead nearly from start to finish in capturing the $25,000 Mares Open Handicap Pace at Dover Downs on Wednesday. Trained and owned by Bryan Truitt of Delaware, Moments Of Joy left from from rail for driver Victor KIrby and ended up parked out first-over against Delishka N (Allan Davis) to an opening quarter mile in :27. Once cleared to the lead, Moments Of Joy then cut the mile with fractions of :55.4 and 1:23.4 before holding off a late charge by race favorite Wisdom Tree (Tim Tetrick) to win by a neck in 1:51.4.  Rockin the Boys A. for driver Tony Morgan and trainer Andrew Harris finished third. The five-year-old mare by Western Terror went off at odds of 5-1 and paid $12.80 to win.   by Al Kraszewski, for Dover Downs    

WILKES-BARRE, PA - On Saturday night, the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono honored its 2019 harness racing Horse of the Year and Claimer of the Year, who happened to be one and the same horse - the Western Terror 10-year-old gelding Atta Boy Dan. So far this year at Pocono, Atta Boy Dan has posted a record of 22-13-2-3, with earnings of $151,575. He was all but invincible in the top claiming ranks through most of the summer, taking ten of eleven starts, and he was claimed out of fourteen straight races, an unofficial local record. Peter Pellegrino, training the horse for owner Stephen Larkin as the last of the long line claiming Atta Boy Dan, was among those in the Pocono winners circle for the ceremonies. Atta Boy Dan is the first horse in recent memory to be a double honor winner for a season. Funknwaffles made a brush to the lead at the half, fought off pressure, then drew away to a 3½ length victory in the $17,500 featured pace, tallying in 1:50.2. The American Ideal gelding won over Ourlittlegeneral A, who challenged the winner of $952,534 without cover down the backstretch, couldn't get by him, but did hold for the deuce. Funknwaffles missed less than a length in this class last week from the outside post nine, and the move all the way in to the rail may have made the difference for the veteran, who is trained by Deborah Brunet for Crawford Farms Racing. George Napolitano Jr. drove Funknwaffles, one of four victories he had on the Saturday card at the mountain oval. Burning Midnight and driver Pat Berry got good racing fortune in taking the $16,000 top claiming handicap pace. The Mach Three gelding was on the move early behind Talent Soup, then got to retuck in the pocket behind his cover as the early leader broke and bothered the horse behind him. Talent Soup was joined by first-over Palomar down the back and on the far turn, with Berry able to slip out behind the dueling pair and then catch Palomar by a neck in 1:52 for trainer Lou Pena and the ownership of Joe P Racing LLC.

Veteran pacer Betterlatethnnever (Western Terror) has been a winning machine over the course of the last several years. The Jimmy Nickerson-trained pacer got his career off to a late start but once he started, he has never stopped. On Saturday night at Saratoga Raceway, the ten year old was the longest shot on the board in the evening's $15,000 Open Pace with reinsman Mitch Cushing in the sulky. After the race's favorite traveled unopposed on the lead in a first half in 56 seconds, he faltered heading to three quarters and a host of closers swallowed up the favorite around the final turn. Betterlatethnnever closed with a power surge on the far outside and emerged victorious after a scramble in the stretch, stopping the timer in 1:53.1 to record the upset at odds of 9-1. The win was the tenth of the season for the Nickerson trainee and though it was the first in the local Open in 2019 for Betterlatethnnever, it wasn't his first career victory in a Saratoga Open. Back in the '17 season at the age of eight, Betterlatethnnever won an Open in a career-best 1:50.1, a mark that still stands as a lifetime mark for the classy pacer. Century Endeavor (Gerry Mattison) finished second in the Saturday feature while Lord Willoughby A (Larry Stalbaum) earned the show spot. Betterlatethnnever paid $21.20 to win and led an exacta and triple in the six-horse feature that returned $110 and $307.50, respectively. The Open win was the first at Saratoga in the young career of driver Mitch Cushing. Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon at the Spa with a matinee beginning at 12 Noon. by Mike Sardella, for Saratoga Raceway

DAYTON, OH. - Fan Of Terror (Dan Noble) notched the first sub-1:50 mile of the young season at Hollywood Dayton Raceway, scoring in 1:49.3 in the initial $17,500 Open Pace of the meet. The razor-sharp 7-year-old gelded son of Western Terror has had a sensational harness racing season winning half of his 28 starts and banking $179,475. Second choice My Hero Ron (Tyler Smith) fired off the gate for early command, stopping the initial quarter timer in :26.2 with Tookadiveoffdipper (Brett Miller) in tow and Fan Of Terror dropping in third. In the stretch the first time, Noble shot the winner to the lead before hitting the halfway beam in :53.3. Never seriously challenged thereafter, Fan Of Terror tripped the three quarter station beam in 1:22 before tacking on the final :27.3 panel. My Hero Ron hung tough for second with Tookadiveoffdipper garnering the show dough. Therl Hensley owns Fan Of Terror, who now sports 38 career wins and is nearing $400,000 in career purse winnings.

Batavia, NY --- If last week's seven-length romp wasn't proof enough he's on top of his game, Black Is Back beat the best harness racing pacers on the grounds again on Saturday (Aug. 31) in the $12,500 Open I Handicap at Batavia Downs. In a no-nonsense move, Dave McNeight III pushed Black Is Back off the gate and to the lead and set down the marching orders from there. With the field in post position order behind him, Black Is Back cut the quarters in :28.3, :57.2 and 1:25.3 with the only horse staying close to him being the pocket-sitting In Runaway Bay N (Drew Monti). Rolling off the far turn Monti pulled In Runaway Bay N off the pylons and took dead aim at Black Is Back and momentarily put a nose in front at the top of the stretch. McNeight asked for more from his horse and Black Is Back was up to the task; surging back to the lead and winning by a half-length in 1:54. Black Is Back now has eight wins and $56,360 earned in 2019. The 6-year-old gelded son of Western Terror-Magic Moments is owned by Curtis Edholm and Mihajlo Zdjelar Sr. and is trained by Mihajlo Zdjelar Jr. In the $11,000 Open II pace Race Me Rocky (Shawn McDonough) got away fifth off the gate before pulling with cover behind Iammrbrightside N (John Cummings Jr.) past the half, tipped three-wide in the last turn and out hustled the competition to the wire to win in 1:53.2. It was the third win in the last four starts for Race Me Rocky ($12.40) who is owned by Delmis Esquivel and trained by Pat Galbraith. The fastest circuit of the night came in a $9,000 mid-level condition race where Mr. Euroman N (Billy Davis Jr.) went gate to wire by a gapped advantage and won by two in 1:52.3 which tied his seasonal mark for 2019. Mr. Euroman N ($3.90) is owned by Vogel and Wags Nags Stable, Jack Rice and Adelphi Bloodstock. Maria Rice trains the winner. Mr. Euroman N was only one of three winners for driver Billy Davis Jr. Saturday, who extended his lead as the top dash driver of the meet. Live racing resumes at Batavia Downs on Monday (Sept. 2) with a special 1:15 p.m. post time for the annual Labor Day matinee. By Tim Bojarski, for Batavia Downs  

STONEBORO, PA --- The 2019 Pennsylvania Fair Circuit completed the "western part" of its journey during two days of racing at the county fairgrounds in this city in the northwestern part of the state. Friday's racing of sophomores saw the "glamour division," the pacing colts, swept by the circuit's leading stable so far this year, that of Todd Schadel. The two winners, the Western Terror gelding Find One More (2:00 here) and the Well Said gelding Motive Hanover (2:00.4), are also the only two fair competitors with a pair of 2:00 miles over the Keystone twicearounds, and interestingly they both hung up a magic mile during both "A" and "B" level competitions. Todd trains and drove both; he shares ownership of Friday's faster winner with wife Christine, and of the other with his son Cody. Todd's brother Tony co-owns with wife/trainer Linda the sophomore Andover Hall gelding Andovers Asset, whom he guided to his sixth victory of the fair campaign in 2:05, tying him for top winner among all "A" level competitors. A sophomore trotter aiming to take the lead by herself with a seventh fair victory, the filly RT Gloria De Dios, unfortunately had to be scratched out of her race - their van was in an accident coming to the races, but all concerned were reported uninjured. On Thursday two freshmen joined the tie for winningest "A" level fair horse: the pacing filly Dream Dancing and the trotting gelding Penance. The A Rocknroll Dance - Clearly Foxy miss Dream Dancing, a 2:03.4 winner, is brought to you by the team behind frequent fair winners of recent years Camera Lady and Crew Sox Hanover, co-owner/trainer Dave Brickell and co-owner/driver Mitchell York, while the Father Patrick - Yankee Etta gelding Penance , a 2:08.1 winner at Stoneboro, was driven Thursday by Kyle Bolon for trainer Bob Rougeaux III and the Brocious Racing Stable Inc. Within the circuit's pointscoring system that makes participants eligible to their respective Fair Sire Stakes Championships on October 5 at The Meadows, the overall lead has been taken by the Explosive Matter - Dreamgirl Lindy freshman trotting filly Lindy Pretty Lady, home in 2:08.4 for the Bolon/ Rougeaux / Brocious combine. Lindy Pretty Lady has been ultra-consistent , with a 13-4-6-3 scorecard at the fairs earning her the top point spot at this juncture. And so as not to slight the "B" Fair Sire Stakes racers, we mention that the A Rocknroll Dance - Real Expresso colt Caffeine Buzz now leads all fair competitors after posting his seventh fair win, all at the "B" level, in 2:08.3 for owner/trainer Roger Hammer and trainer Branden Smith. The fair rules have statutes regulating both the "winning out" from the "B" level and possible return if not high-up in the "A"s, and Caffeine Buzz obviously has found his winning level in the lower class - but he still has $11,562 on his card. Wayne Long drove five winners during the 2-day Stoneboro stand to take top honors for sulkysitters, while three trainers - Long, Bob Rougeaux, and Todd Schadel - tied for top in their category with a trio of winning charges. The state's fair action shifts to the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds this Sunday and Monday, where a two-day Fair Sire Stakes meet will host two-year-olds the first day and three-year-olds the second. Post time for both days is scheduled for 1 p.m From the PHHA, Pennsylvania Fair Harness Horsemen Association, and the MSOA oartnership

LEBANON, OH. - Fan Of Terror is officially the 'King of the Hill' among $20,000 harness racing claimers at Miami Valley Raceway after capturing the $32,500 Claim To Fame final for that division on Saturday night (Feb. 2). For trainer Brady Galliers it was the second lucrative Claim To Fame final in as many weeks having copped the $12,500 split with RHP. In both cases, Galliers welcomed the winners into his stable just prior to the finals via the claim box. Galliers wisely chose red-hot Dan Noble to steer Fan Of Terror in the championship tilt. The result was a front-stepping 1:52.3 score for the son of Western Terror's seventh straight victory in southwest Ohio. The 4-5 favorite beat second choice Latest Desire (Trace Tetrick) and longshot Whiskey Friskie (Tyler Smith). New owners Brian and Ira Wallach recouped the majority of their purchase price for Fan Of Terror in just one week. Noble was right back in the winner's circle for the fifth time on the night-and ninth time on the weekend-following the $25,000 Open I Handicap Pace. Nuclear Dragon, making just his third start after a three-month vacation from the racing wars, pushed the starting gate out of the way at the start and pulled Noble around the five eighths Miami Valley oval on the front end in 1:51.2. The odds-on favorite topped longshots Whatchyastarinat (Kyle Ater) and Shagnwiththedragon (Mike Oosting) in the top weekly feature race. It was Nuclear Dragon's tenth triumph in the past year and pushed his earnings over the last 12 months over $200,000 for owner Richard Mishkin. A $20,000 Open II Pace on the Saturday card wasn't nearly as chalky. The longest shot in the race, 87-1 Mojoto Hanover (Elliott Deaton) made an ultra impressive three-wide rally around the final turn and through the lane to score the 1:53.3 tally and return $176.80 for a $2 bet. Cruise Patrol (Trace Tetrick) also made up a huge deficit to come from last at the half to second at the finish. Whataboy (Tyler Smith) nabbed the show dough. Mojoto Hanover is trained by Zachary Miller for owner Edward Dobrowolski. Two divisions of the second leg of the $30,000 Claim To Fame Series also went postward to determine the nine finalists for their $37,500 championship final on Sunday, Feb. 10. Tetrick guided both winners in an identical clocking of 1:53.1. In the first division, Swapportunity bested IYQ YQR (Chris Page) and Evergreen Elite (Kyle Ater). Claimed out of the first leg of the three-week series, Swapportunity was making his initial start for Lasalle Investments LLC and trainer Becky Zubkoff. Cyclone Kiwi N notched his second straight win in the second division, racing for new owner-trainer Adam Short who also plucked the winner from the leg one claim box. Indiana Cam (Todd Warren) raced huge from an outside post for his second consecutive runnerup finish, while Sammy The Bull N (Josh Sutton) proved best of the rest. Cyclone Kiwi N and Swapportunity will be joined in the lucrative final by JM Jet Set, Indiana Cam, Coal Hanover, Backstreet Lawyer, IYQ YQR, Prejudice and Sammy The Bull N. Miami Valley Raceway will be dark on Super Bowl Sunday. From the Miami Valley Media Department  

WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 1, 2019 -- New Evidence stalked Stride Of Pride from the pocket before using the Lightning Lane to perfection to complete the 6-1 upset in Friday's $18,000 Preferred Pace at The Meadows. Stride Of Pride had plenty of pace left turning for home but couldn't match the 27.3 final panel of New Evidence, who prevailed in 1:52.2 over a "good" surface for Aaron Merriman. Dapper Dude also shot the Lightning Lane for second, 1-3/4 lengths back, while Stride Of Pride saved show. Herman Hagerman trains the 6-year-old Western Terror-Bouncing Hanover gelding, who lifted his career earnings to $122,630, for Northwind Farm. With his place check, the 10-year-old Dapper Dude vaulted over $1.3 million in lifetime purses. Dave Palone, Mike Wilder and trainer Ron Burke each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card. In other highlights of the racing week at The Meadows: Wind Of The North Survives Late Scare In $20,000 Trot Wind Of The North had things his way on the point but had to hold off a late charge from the pocket-sitting TSM Photo Bugger to capture Monday's $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot. As TSM Photo Bugger closed in, Merriman asked the millionaire for more. The 9-year-old Cantab Hall-Talk To The Wind gelding responded, downing the challenger by a neck in 1:56.1 over a "good" surface, with Explosive Leggs third. Bill Bercury trains and owns Wind Of The North, who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $1,063,508. Jim Pantaleano and Wilder each collected three wins on the 13-race card. White Metro Pulls Off 16-1 Shocker In Top Distaff Pace Dismissed at 16-1, White Metro followed the live cover of Bontz N, then roared past her in the lane to score in Tuesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Pace for Mike Wilder, trainer Randy Bendis and owner Tom Pollack. The 7-year-old daughter of Metropolitan-Bye Bye Peachy Pie triumphed in 1:54.3 over a "good" surface, 1-1/2 lengths better than Bontz N, who was returning from a 4-1/2-month layoff and suffered her first U.S. defeat in four domestic starts. A trapped-in Camera Lady shook loose late to claim show. White Metro has banked $347,716 in her career. Palone fashioned a triple on the 13-race program.
