West Liberty (Western Terror) prevailed in the $9,500 Friday harness racing feature for fillies and mares at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Following a second place finish last week when dismissed at odds of 12-1, West Liberty again received little backing by the betting public on Friday night when she wound up getting away fourth in the five-horse feature for distaffers. Driver Jimmy Devaux activated the Bruce Bentley-trained mare heading towards three quarters and West Liberty surged right past the race's favorite Her Own Land (Mark Beckwith). West Liberty, who paid $22.00 to win, stopped the timer in 1:53.3, the fastest win time of the year for the six year old mare. Sometimes Graceful (Wally Hennessey) came on for second as she hit the board for the fifth consecutive time in the class while Her Own Land had to settle for third. Live racing continues on Saturday night at Saratoga with a 7:05pm first post. Mike Sardella

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Agent Q moved alongside leader Brazuca on the final turn and pulled away from the field to win Saturday's $165,700 Mistletoe Shalee for harness racing 3-year-old filly pacers by two lengths in a stakes- and track-record equaling 1:48.4 at the Meadowlands. Idyllic Beach finished second and Awash was third. Sent off as the 1-5 favorite, Agent Q and driver David Miller were fourth in the race's early stages as Brazuca led the fillies to the opening quarter in :26.4 and half in :54.3. By that time, Agent Q was on the move first over and was a quarter-length from the lead when the field reached three-quarters in 1:21.4. Agent Q's time equaled the track and stakes record set by Dancinwiththestarz in 2010. "She's just been unbelievable the last few weeks," co-owner Bill Rochetti Jr. said. "It's so fun to watch." Agent Q has won five of eight races this year and earned $379,124 and her victories this season also include the Lynch Memorial. For her career, she has won eight of 18 races and finished worse than third only once on her way to banking $817,828. The daughter of Western Terror-Teenage Paige, trained by Chris Ryder, is owned by Martin Scharf, Rochetti Cassar Racing and Robert Muscara. Agent Q paid $2.60 to win. Agent Q By Ken Weingartner  

Wilkes-Barre, PA --- Agent Q and driver David Miller made a sustained first-over drive pay off in Saturday's (July 1) $300,000 James M. Lynch Memorial for harness racing 3-year-old female pacers, taking the lead coming off the final turn and pulling away from the field in the stretch to win by three lengths in 1:51 at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Caviart Ally, a 196-1 longshot, finished second and 14-1 Brazuca was third.   Agent Q, the 8-5 second choice behind favorite Tequila Monday, was fourth on the first turn as Idyllic Beach battled with Brazuca for the front. Idyllic Beach got the lead in a :26.1 opening quarter-mile, but it wouldn't be long before Agent Q came calling.   "I expected there would be some horses to leave," Miller said. "In the first turn they were going too hard to try to retake and my mare is pretty game so I took my shot coming first over.   "I felt good (on the final turn). My mare still had a nice hold of me. Yannick (Gingras with Idyllic Beach) had just asked his filly and I was getting to her pretty easy. I thought we were going to be in good shape unless somebody off the back got us. But she raced well. She's very sharp right now."   Agent Q, a daughter of Western Terror out of the mare Teenage Paige, has won four of seven races this year and earned $297,931. It was her first win in an open stakes final after second-place finishes in this year's Fan Hanover Stakes and Lismore Pace and last year's Breeders Crown and She's A Great Lady. The setbacks in the Fan Hanover and Breeders Crown were both by a nose.   For her career, Agent Q has won seven of 17 races, finished second nine times, and earned $736,635. She is owned by Martin Scharf, Rochetti Cassar Racing, and Robert Muscara. She is trained by Aaron Lambert.   Agent Q     James M. Lynch Memorial Consolation   The Western Ideal filly YS Tallia, in the pocket early, looked shuffled out of contention in the $50,000 Lynch consolation as favored Roaring To Go made a big move in the :27.1 third quarter to gain a sizable lead, with gapping two-wide horses forcing YS Tallia to wait for clearance.   The filly was still four lengths out in midstretch, but driver Simon Allard kept after his charge as Roaring To Go tired, and he and YS Tallia crossed the wire first by a half-length in a lifetime mark of 1:51.4 over a track that had just been upgraded to "good." Roaring To Go held on for second, 1-1/2 lengths ahead of the Pocono Pike-using Risky Romance.   YS Tallia, a Rene Allard-trained daughter of Western Ideal out of Bolero Tallia, has won two of seven races this year and earned $41,890 for breeder/owner Yves Sarrazin (the "YS" in YS Tallia). She was unraced at age 2.   YS Tallia     Jerry Connors

On Saturday night, we recognized forty years of service for Skip Carlson at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The man who has worn many hats at the harness racing track throughout the decades had a race in his honor. The Open Pace was the "Carlson Classic" and went for a purse of $20,000. A field of just six participated as defending Pacer of the Year Artful Way was scratched out of the event. The race's 4-5 betting favorite Betterlatethnnever (Western Terror) moved out to the early lead but set sizzling fractions in order to make it to the top. After a first quarter in 26.3 and a half in 55 seconds flat, the Heidi Rohr trainee braced for even money shot Long Live Rock (Wally Hennessey) who just last week won the feature in 1:50.4. Those two squared off in the stretch in a terrific battle with Betterlatethnnever holding off his foe by the slimmest of margins in a mile clocked in 1:50.1. That win time matched the previous mark set by Artful Way as the fastest of the year at Saratoga. It also served as a new lifetime mark for the eight year old pacer who is in the midst of his career year, winning five straight and ten on the season thus far. Betterlatethnnever was driven to victory by Frank Coppola Jr. Long Live Rock came up second best while Race Me Rocky (Phil Fluet) earned the show spot. Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga with a first post time set for 12:15pm. Mike Sardella

Owned by David McNeight Jr. and trained by Courtney McNeight, Knocking Around would take the lead just before the half. The 7 year-old Western Terror gelding would battle Sing For Me George all the way to the three-quarter mark. Knocking Around held off the late charging Andreios Kardia (Aaron Byron) to win in 1:51. Quality Closer (Rick Dane) would finish third. Live action returns to Tioga Downs on Friday starting at 6:50. For more information go to our website www.tiogadowns.com John Horne for Tioga Downs.

LEBANON, OH. - Safe From Terror (Dan Noble) returned to her customary winning ways on Friday night (April 28) in the $20,000 Mares Open I Handicap at Miami Valley Raceway. It was the 18th win in 2016-17 and 30th of her harness racing career, boosting her lifetime bankroll to $715,207. The 5-year-old Western Terror lass worked hard to get the front end during a :27.3 initial quarter, then cruised through middle fractiions of :55.2 and 1:23.3 before closing in :28.2 and holding favored Jerseylicious (Chris Page) at bay in 1:52 flat. A Little Starstruk (Aaron Merriman), who was last week's winner, rallied for a show finish. Winchester Baye Acres LLC owns Safe From Terror, who was sidelined for a month recently. She is trained by Mike Conklin. Town Temptress (Jason Brewer) captured a $16,500 Open II for mares on the same program. The 5-year-old Artiscape mare enjoyed a second-over trip through a driving rainstorm until tipping three-wide for the stretch drive and passing Shesasmokinlady (Ray Paver Jr.) and holding off Kiss Me Onthebeach (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) in 1:53.3. Steve Bauder conditions Town Temptress for Gail and Robert Sanders. The talented lass won two of her last three starts at Dayton Raceway in 2016 and has now won two of her first three 2017 starts at Miami Valley. Due to severe weather, including major lightning in the area for a prolonged period, the final five races on the Friday night program were cancelled. Gregg Keidel    

The elevated Trots Country Cups Championship has crowned a fitting harness racing winner with Dean Braun’s cups king, Im Corzin Terror, standing alone after the 25-cup season. The championship, which for the first time gifted $25,000 to winning connections, sits snug on Im Corzin Terror’s record, with the Western Terror nine-year-old having won the Decron Cranbourne Gold Cup and placed in four of his other six cup starts to amass 11 points, one clear of Hectorjayjay and Milly Perez. “He deserves to win it,” Braun said. “There are some really nice horses going around in these races, but he was really competitive and maybe a little unlucky not to win another.” With retirement plans on the table the championship could provide a fitting finale for Im Corzin Terror’s terrific career. Snapped up by Braun from New Zealand early in the 2012-13 season, then part-owner Pauline McColgan was a little unsure about the four-year-old’s prospects. “Dean picked him out from New Zealand, I must add after his first start I was a little unsure,” she said. “He looked like he was always about to gallop because he is a bit of a funny pacer.” But Braun was adamant. “He was very funny gaited but he gave me a really good feel when I trialled him and since then he has exceeded all expectations.” His 2013-14 season saw his first dalliance in a Victorian country cup, winning at Maryborough and then adding victories at Bendigo and Terang to finish second in that year’s premiership, just two points shy of prolific competitor Arber. The 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons saw him finish equal third in the championships, adding wins at Maryborough, Ballarat and Hamilton. And then this year he advanced to the top step, adding a seventh career country cup from 30 starts, which have seen him amass 47 championship points (four are given for a win, two for second and one for third). “He’s been one of those horses who are about a rung below the very best and the country cups have been a really good niche for him,” Braun said. “He had won about $30,000 when I took him over and is now over $500,000 and been great for us.” And he’s been a joy to own, according to Ms McColgan, whose decision to increase her stake from an initial part-owner to outright owner has been well rewarded. “He always tries,” she said. “When I bought him I wasn’t expecting him to go on and earn what he has, but the cups are great. Some have great prizemoney and they are great racing.” And this latest premiership win may just be the perfect finishing note for Im Corzin Terror. While Braun said plans for the nine-year-old weren’t “100 per cent, he has done a good job and has been a good horse” and if the trainer felt it was time to draw the curtain on his racing career he would. Ms McColgan agreed. “It looks like he might be retired now,” she said. “He will go out for a spell and I can’t see us bringing him back. He will live out a peaceful retirement on the farm. He’s such a lovely little horse.” Trots Country Cups Championship leaders: Im Corzin Terror 11, Hectorjayjay 10, Milly Perez 10, Major Secret 9, Cruz Bromac 8, Cardon Merger 8, Flaming Flutter 8, My Kiwi Mate 8.

WILKES-BARRE PA - The Western Terror gelding Dash Of Danger - and his driver - emerged with top honors during the opening night of the 2017 Bobby Weiss Series at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Sunday, with "Dash" winning in 1:51.4 to knock a tick off his lifetime best, set last week.   The Ron Burke-conditioned four-year-old, owned by the partnership of Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, and Marc Reynolds, had to overcome the tough tuck-then-first-over trip, but he had more than enough power in the lane in winning by 2¾ lengths.   Dash Of Danger's driver, Matt Kakaley, was the human star of the night, as he posted six winners. He had gotten the card off to a spectacular start by reining home the longest shot on the board, Threeupthreedown, to a $119.20 payoff in the Early Double opener, then came right back with another of Burke's three winning charges on the night, Migrate Blue Chip, to complete a very rare "9-9" Double worth $501.80.   Other male Weiss winners in their first round preliminary divisions, like the ladies' worth $15,000 each, were Highalator and My Three Sons. Highalator, a Somebeachsomewhere colt out of the $900,000-winning world champion Higher And Higher, now has six wins in a row after a 1:54.4 - 56.3 - 28.1 engine effort for driver Victor Kirby and trainer Jenny Bier, who also co-owns the promising sophomore with co-breeder Charles Dombeck.   Kakaley was originally listed to drive the Real Desire four-year-old gelding My Three Sons, but he stuck with another Burke trainee, Art N Music, and settled for third, just a neck off, behind the 1:53.2 winner, who came from third-over to edge Dakota Jack by a nose for driver David Miller and owner/trainer Anette Lorentzon.   In the three Weiss cuts for distaffs, Miss Jones was impressive in what looked like the most competitive section, taking a new mark of 1:53.4 in front of Corey Callahan for trainer Joe Holloway and the ownership of Crawford Farms Racing, Val D'Or Farms, and Ted Gewertz. The Bettor's Delight filly opened a big lead, then had more than enough to withstand previously-unbeaten Chat Snap by a length on the money.   The brothers Allard, driver Simon and trainer Rene, posted five victories on Saturday's Pocono card and came back Sunday with four triumphs, one of them with the American Ideal mare I Deal In Kisses. The winner moved to the lead past the quarter and went on to equal her lifetime mark of 1:53.3 for Allard Racing Inc.   Driver Victor Kirby took another trip to the Pocono winners circle after guiding the Dragon Again filly Rewind Again to victory in 1:54.1, earning her a new speed badge by 2/5 of a second. Rewind Again, an easy wire-to-wire winner, ran her record to 3-for-4 this year and 5-for-8 lifetime for trainer Gary Simpson, co-owner with Eric Good.   Pocono's next program will be on Tuesday night, when three divisions of trotting females will open up their Weiss Series preliminary action.   PHHA / Pocono  

WILKES-BARRE PA - The Western Terror filly Chat Snap, already entered in the first leg of her division of the $750,000 Bobby Weiss Series Sunday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, showed that she should be tough to beat with a victorious prep race five days prior to her first Weiss start, winning a $14,000 contest at The Downs Tuesday in 1:55.2 over a sloppy harness racing track.   With a well-strung-out field, driver Andrew McCarthy was able to wait in fourth with Chat Snap, and when given her head approaching the ¾, the filly took her cue, motoring right up to gain the lead before the top of the stretch. From there she methodically drew clear of her field, winning by 4¼ lengths.   Chat Snap is now undefeated in three lifetime starts, including a 1:52.3 - 26.3 victory to her credit, and she has the look of a tough filly in the making for trainer Nifty Norman and owners Enzed Racing Stable Inc. and Misty Miller.   Just how tough this filly is may be discovered in the first Weiss leg for pacing distaffs this Sunday, as Chat Snap will be starting from post six in a field of eight against what may be the best-balanced of all the $15,000 Weiss divisions Sunday. The females will do battle in races 5, 11, and 12, while the males will face off in races 6, 8, and 10.   PHHA / Pocono    

DOVER, Del.--- After finishing second by a neck and a head in her previous two starts, Dismissal finally bested Barbara's Shadow to score a 1:52 victory in the $15,000 4 & 5-Year-Old Mares harness racing feature on Tuesday, March 21 at Dover Downs. Corey Callahan took control after the opening quarter and was never headed on the way to her fifth victory this year. The four-year-old daughter of Western Terror-Her Mattjesty shook off a backstretch challenge from Barefoot Julie (Tim Tetrick) after the three-quarters then pulled away averting any conflict from Barbara's Shadow (Vic Kirby) who was three lengths back in second turning for home.

Pompano Beach, FL...March 19, 2017...First Of Itskind, driven by Mike Simons, scored a three-peat victory in Pompano Park's $12,000 Open Handicap Pace on Sunday night, stopping the tele-timer in 1:51.2. The six year-old gelded son of Western Terror used a :27.2 finale to nail Drachan Hanover, handled by Wally Hennessey, in the final 16th of the mile to score by a length. Sing For Me George, with Kevin Wallis in the bike, finished third after enjoying a garden journey while Rockntouch finished fourth. Fritzie Pick Up Man picked up the nickel in the sextet, despite a miscue at the start while King Of The Crop completed the order of finish in the classy sextet. At the outset, both Sing For Me George and Drachan Hanover went in search of the lead with the latter taking command around the opening turn and then churning through an opening panel in a snappy :26.3. With no threats developing on the way to the half, Drachan Hanover was able to gain a breather during that second panel with the half clocked in :56 as King Of The Crop marched up first over into third with First Of Itskind following live cover fourth. With the pace quickening on the backside, there were, still, no serious threats coming into play with Drachan Hanover reaching the third station in 1:23.2 and protecting a 1 ½ length lead, which held steady as the field turned for home. In the lane, Drachan Hanover looked comfortable on the lead but, quite simply, couldn't contain First Of Itskind, who used that explosive :27.2 closing kick to sprint by in the final 16th of the mile. After the event, Mike Simons had nothing but praise for his charge relating, "once we straightened away for the drive, I really wasn't too sure we could get there, but this horse really revved up his motor at mid-stretch. He was very sharp tonight--I mean VERY sharp!" Trained by Jason Robinson for owner Robert Main, First Of Itskind earned his fourth win of the year in eight starts, good for $28,140 in 2017 earnings. Career-wise, First Of Itskind now has 20 wins in 99 starts and $194,991 on the books. As the 1 to 2 betting favorite, First Of Itskind returned $3.00 to his multitude of followers. The $10,000 Open 2 Pace went to Pointsman, driven by Rick Plano, in 1:52.3. The seven year-old gelded son of Royal Mattjesty, won the early battle as four horses went in pursuit of the lead and carded panels of :26.4, :55.2 and 1:23.3 before a :29 finale was good enough to hold off the late surging Panchester United (Wally Hennessey) by one length. Rock N Row (Mike Simons) finished third while Buddha Blue Chip and Grande Seelster picked up the final awards in the field shortened to six with a scratch. Trained by Joe Pavia, Jr. for Lon Frocione, Pointsman earned his second win of the year and 17th lifetime to send his career bounty to $274,135. As the slight favorite in his field at 6 to 5, Pointsman paid $4.60 to win. Racing continues on Monday night with Sooo Handsome and Prairie Fortune mixing it up again in the $12,000 Open Handicap Trot. Sooo Handsome will have owner-trainer Rick Plano back in the bike while Prairie Fortune will have the driving services of John MacDonald. So Handsome was up in the final stride last week to pin a photo finish defeat on Prairie Fortune but, despite that, Prairie Fortune has been made the 8 to 5 morning line favorite for their encounter on Monday night. Sooo Handsome has been tabbed at 6 to 1. Explosive Muscles (10 to 1), Dog Gone Lucky (5 to 1), Massive Lightning (6 to 1) and Boli (5 to 2) complete the field. The Pick-4 will offer a $10,000 guaranteed purse on Monday night--that offering conducted on races 6 through 9. First post is set for 7:20 p.m. by John Berry for Pompano Park      

At least one thing is certain this week at Miami Valley Raceway: Kiss Of Terror will not get claimed. Already claimed five times this year, Kiss Of Terror is entered in Saturday's $22,000 Open Handicap at Miami Valley. Kiss Of Terror, a 5-year-old gelding pacer who has won six of nine races this season and earned $54,425, will start from post four with Kyle Ater at the lines for his father, trainer Dan Ater. Kiss Of Terror was claimed for $30,000 last week by Kirk Nichols and Seth Downing. Kiss Of Terror won that start by 10-1/4 lengths in 1:51. It was his sixth victory in his past seven races. "He's a real popular guy," Dan Ater said about Kiss Of Terror, who has won 18 of 71 career starts and earned $190,944. "I guess when any horse is winning they are popular. Hopefully we can keep him on that string. It'll be tough at that level, but we'll find out. "The owners wanted to move him up, which is what we usually do with claimers. We don't play the rent-a-horse game. We try to find something we like and hang on to him a little while. Sometimes that's good and sometimes that's bad, but that's our plan anyway. We'll see what happens." In January, Kiss Of Terror won a $27,100 Claim to Fame Series championship at Miami Valley. Kiss Of Terror's only setback in his past seven starts came in the Open Handicap on Feb. 25 at Miami Valley. He finished seventh, beaten by 3-1/2 lengths after a first-over trip. Kiss Of Terror is a son of stallion Western Terror out of the stakes-winning Kissed By A Fool. The dam is a half-sister to millionaire I Am A Fool and was one of nine foals out of I'm No Fool to earn at least $200,000 at the races. "He likes to win," Ater said. "I like his gameness. He's not a very big horse, but he seems like a nice horse. He just looks like a quality horse and quality horses are hard to find. We'll see how he does. It's all a gamble. You try to take care of them and do the best you can and hope for the best." Saturday's Open Handicap at Miami Valley also features Night Pro, who is 2-for-2 this year and will start from post nine with Sam Widger driving for trainer/owner Dale Decker. The remainder of the field is Account Rollover, Angelo J Fra, Feelnlikearockstar, My Buddy Ninkster, Swing City, Latest Desire, and My Hero Ron. "I hope he races good this week and I hope I can keep him racing good," Ater said about Kiss Of Terror. "We try to look for horses for a little longevity, but it's a big task. Nowadays it's a tough game. "Hopefully for us you don't see him in a $30,000 claimer next week." by Ken Weingartner, for Harness Racing Communications
