Handover Belle just missed by a nose to Market Share one week ago, tonight, she flipped the script on her eight harness racing opponents winning the $28,500 Open Trot in 1:51.1 at The Meadowlands. Combined in the wagering with Gural Hanover, Handover Belle allowed the pace to settle down in front of her, as her stablemate did the early lifting, reaching the quarter in a sharp 26.4. As the field turned down the backstretch, Hanover Belle made her move for the lead and she cleared Gural Hanover and rolled past the half-mile in 54.1. With no challenge coming around the far turn, Handover Belle was able to back the field down a bit, trotting 28.4 on the far turn. At that point, Gural Hanover pulled the pocket to challenge his entry-mate in the stretch as the rest of the field closed in. Wind Of The North mounted a strong bid along the pylons, while Allie Labrook and Shake It Cerry came charging down the center of the racetrack. But, Handover Belle was able to hold everyone off to score a game victory. Wind Of The North rallied up the pylons for the place spot, with Allie Labrook rolling late to get up for third. Handover Belle was driven by Yannick Gingras for Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi and Howard Taylor. With the victory, Handover Belle surpassed $500,000 in lifetime earnings. Handover Belle The Jimmy Takter duo of French Laundry and The Bank were as-advertised in the $23,750 three year old open trot as they made their final tune-ups for The Hambletonian. Sent off as the 2/5 favored entry, The Bank cleared the lead going past the three-eighths pole, while his stable-mate, French Laundry, followed suit and took over into the far turn. French Laundry opened up daylight as the field reached the head of the stretch, but The Bank cut into that margin through the lane as the two finished well in front of the rest of the field and streaked under the line together, with French Laundry holding on by a neck in 1:52.4. It was four lengths back to Aldebaran Eagle in third. French Laundry was driven by Brett Miller for Jimmy and Christina Takter, John and Jim Fielding, Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld. The win was the 10th in 18 lifetime starts for French Laundry and his earnings now stand at over $392,000. French Laundry The freshman trotters geared up for the first round of major stakes for the two year olds on Friday night at The Meadowlands. Twenty four fillies went behind the gate in three eliminations of the Jim Doherty Memorial (formerly The Merrie Annabelle) while 19 colts and geldings contested the Peter Haughton Memorial eliminations, split into two divisions. One of the major stars of the night was Broadway Donna, who entered the first Doherty elimination with an unblemished record and she left just the same, romping to a 1:53.3 score as the 1/9 prohibitive choice over Celebrity Eventsy and I'm Outstanding. The clocking was not only a lifetime mark, but it was the fastest mile by any two year old trotter, filly or colt, thus far in 2015. Broadway Donna was guided to victory by Dave Miller for trainer John Campbell and Fashion Farms LLC, who also bred the filly. She will undoubtedly be a short-priced favorite in the $389,450 Jim Doherty Memorial Final on Hambletonian Day after running her record to a perfect five for five. Broadway Donna The second elimination for the Doherty saw Womans Will assert her will over eight other fillies, winning in 1:55.3 as the even money favorite. She held off a late burst from the Jimmy Takter trained and driven Miss Tezsla and Silent Blessings. Womans Will was driven by Andy Miller for Julie Miller and owners Al Libfeld and Marvin Katz, who bred the filly. Womans Will Kathy Parker got the job done as a co-favorite at 5/2 in the third elimination of the Doherty, winning in 1:56.1 for Johnny Takter. The two year old filly was guided to the lead before the half-mile pole and appeared to be an easy winner, until a 90-1 longshot, Lindy's On Fire, burst on the scene in the last sixteenth of a mile, but Kathy Parker was able to hold on by the narrowest of margins. Sunset Glider was a trapped-in third. Kathy Parker, named for the editor of the Horsemen and Fair World, was trained by Jimmy Takter for Christina Takter, Brixton Medical, R A W Equine and J. Mc Clelland. Kathy Parker The nine that have locked in their spots in the $389,450 Jim Doherty Memorial Final are: Broadway Donna Womans Will Kathy Parker Celebrity Eventsy I'm Outstanding Miss Tezsla Silent Blessings Lindy's On Fire Sunset Glider The three fourth place finishers that will be draw by lot for the final spot in the final are: Southwind Adele Gifted Lady Encore Gold The draw for the last entrant and the post position draw for the Jim Doherty Memorial will take place on Saturday afternoon. The first Peter Haughton elimination saw another favorite return dividends as Southwind Frank made short work of the field of 10, scoring his third victory in four starts in 1:54.1 as the 1/5 betting choice. Leading from the three-eighths pole to the wire, Southwind Frank easily held sway in the stretch over Earn And Burn and Alexander Hanover. Southwind Frank was driven to victory by Yannick Gingras for Ron Burke, who co-owns the colt with Weaver Bruscemi, Our Hrs Cents Stables and J & T Silva Stables. Southwind Frank The second elimination produced an 8-1 upset in Milligan's School, who sat third behind a rapid pace, moved on the far turn, opened up in the stretch and held sway rather easily in 1:54.1. Favored Bar Hopping rallied willingly in the stretch to be second with Brooklyn Hill a game third. The winner is owned by Story Inc and trained by Julie Miller. Andy and Julie Miller teamed up for their second win of the night. Milligan's School The 10 two year olds qualifying for the $349,850 Peter Haughton Memorial Final are: Southwind Frank Milligan's School Earn And Burn Sliding Home Alexander Hanover Dominion Beach Bar Hopping Brooklyn Hill Southwind Flash Winter Harbor Both fields will be drawn on Saturday afternoon. The Jackpot Super Hi-5 carryover went unclaimed on Friday night and the carryover into the Saturday program will be $225,376. Post time for the Saturday program, featuring the eliminations for The Hambletonian Oaks is 7:15 P.M.   Darin Zoccali

My Hero Ron could be harness racing trainer Ron Burke's hero with a win in Saturday's $400,000 Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids presented by Coors Light at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino. Since being purchased in early June by Burke and his racing partners, My Hero Ron has put together a three-race win streak heading to the 49th edition of the event at Burke's home track. The Burke Stable, which won the 2007 Adios with May June Character, will send three horses into the final, with Cooperstown and Yankee Bounty joining My Hero Ron in the field of nine. First race post time is 12:20 p.m. Saturday, with the Adios scheduled for approximately 4 p.m. My Hero Ron, driven by Yannick Gingras, won his Adios elimination by 1-1/2 lengths over Yankee Bounty in 1:50.3. My Hero Ron drew post No. 7 for the final and is the 3-1 second choice on the morning line. Gingras piloted Sunfire Blue Chip to the 2013 Adios crown. Cooperstown also won an Adios elimination with Gingras - at 37-1 odds - besting Lost For Words and favorite Dude's The Man both by a neck in 1:49.4. Cooperstown, who will be driven by Matt Kakaley in the final, drew post four and is 6-1 on the morning line. Dude's The Man is the 5-2 favorite in the Adios final after his rally from sixth place in his elimination fell just short. Dude's The Man, who finished second in the Meadowlands Pace on July 18, will start from post two with Corey Callahan driving for trainer Jessica Okusko. National Seelster, who won the remaining of the three Adios eliminations in 1:51.1, drew post nine for the final and is 6-1 for driver Tim Tetrick and trainer Chris Ryder. My Hero Ron, who has won five of 19 career races and earned $139,128, is owned by Burke Racing, the partnership of Mark Weaver and Mike Bruscemi, Larry Karr, and Frank Baldachino. He won a division of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes on June 6 in his first start for the Burke Brigade and last year finished second in divisions of the Tompkins-Geers, Historic-Goshen Cup, and Arden Downs stakes for then-trainer Erv Miller. "I love him," Burke said about the gelding, who is a son of Well Said out of the mare Erma La Em. "I think he's our best shot. He just gets better every time we race him. He's versatile. He's a big horse, a strong horse, with a good attitude." Yankee Bounty won last year's Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship for 2-year-old male pacers and finished his campaign with eight victories in 10 starts. This season he is winless in 10 races. His second-place finish to My Hero Ron in their Adios elimination was Yankee Bounty's best finish since a runner-up effort on May 28 in a division of the PaSS. Driver Brett Miller and Yankee Bounty will start the Adios final from post one and are 15-1 on the morning line. "He's definitely underachieved," said Burke, who trains the gelded son of Yankee Cruiser-Bootleg Yankee for the Yankee Bounty Partnership and Frank Chick. "He was the best 2-year-old in Pennsylvania last year. Other horses got better (this year) and he didn't seem to. But last week also was a little bit of a return to form." Cooperstown has won only four of 23 lifetime races, but hit the board a total of 16 times on his way to earnings of $178,687. Last year, the son of Four Starzzz Shark-American Charm finished third in the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship and sixth in the Breeders Crown for 2-year-old male pacers. His triumph in his Adios elimination was his first win in stakes company. Cooperstown, whose mother is a half-sister to multiple Dan Patch Award winner Art Major, is owned by Burke Racing, Weaver-Bruscemi, Keith Pippi, and Michelle Yanek. "Probably all this year he's been a little bit of an underachiever too," Burke said. "He was third in the (Pennsylvania Sire Stakes) final last year and a Breeders Crown horse and yet he's had trouble getting out of non-winners of three. He probably should have been racing better. The other day was like a return to form for him as well." Following is the Adios field in post order, with drivers, trainers and morning line odds: 1 .Yankee Bounty by Yankee Cruiser --Brett Miller, Ron Burke, 8-1 2. Dude's The Man by American Ideal --Corey Callahan, Jessica Okusko, 5-2 3. Trading Up by Somebeachsomewhere --Brett Miller, Tony Alagna, 10-1 4. Cooperstown by Four Starzzz Shark --Matt Kakaley, Ron Burke, 6-1 5. Dreams Beachboy by Somebeachsomewhere --Scott Zeron, Tony Alagna, 15-1 6. Lost For Words by Well Said --David Miller, Brian Brown, 5-1 7. My Hero Ron by Well Said --Yannick Gingras, Ron Burke, 3-1 8. Angelo J Fra by The Panderosa -Tony Hall, Norm Parker, 15-1 9. National Seelster by Bettor's Delight --Tim Tetrick, Chris Ryder, 8-1 by Ken Weingartner Harness Racing Communications USTA

When the harness racing fields are drawn Monday morning for Hambletonian Day, Mission Brief's name won't be among the entries for the Hambletonian Oaks. On Sunday night, trainer Ron Burke confirmed to The Meadowlands Racetrack that his star three year old filly will take on the boys in the 90th Hambletonian on Saturday, August 8th. "We're going," said Burke. "The plan has always been to go as long as she was good and today at Vernon she was as good as she has been. She had to be super and she was." The Hambletonian is raced in heat format, which means if at least 14 horses enter, the winner of the Hambletonian would have to race twice in the same day. But Burke said that was not a concern. "I'm really not worried about that. She is just so athletic, I really don't think it will be a problem." If there are 13 horses or less entered in The Hambletonian, it will be raced as one dash for the cash. As for the reason why Burke and his ownership chose The Hambletonian over the Oaks, it came down to a simple notion. "If we win this race, it will change our lives and it makes her career." "I know the Oaks is $500,000 and she would be odds-on to win that race, but it wouldn't change our lives." "Winning The Hambletonian changes lives." The sportsmanship of Ron Burke and the ownership of Mission Brief was on display with this decision as well. "It will be great for the sport." "To have a filly like this trying to beat all of Takter's horses." "This will be a great story." "I think we have the filly to do it." "If I am wrong, I'm wrong and I have been wrong and criticized before, but I really think she can do it." There is one question that remains, who will Yannick Gingras drive? Gingras pilots both Mission Brief and the best three year old colt in the country, Pinkman. As of now, Ron Burke says that Gingras has not committed to either horse. "If they both race huge in the eliminations (assuming they are in separate eliminations), he might not be able to decide until after the first heat." That storyline is one that may go down in the annals of harness racing history. A decision of a lifetime some might say. Gingras may literally have to choose between two dynamic trotters in the sport's biggest race in the hour leading up to the race. Gingras has done it all in the sport, but still seeks his first Hambletonian, adding to the pressure of this decision. Gingras was quoted in an interview after winning the Zweig stating he "hoped Mission Brief went in the Oaks." But, given that he also drives Pinkman, it is certainly understandable why Gingras shared that sentiment. Gingras was reached Sunday night and confirmed a decision on his part has not been made as of yet. The last filly to win The Hambletonian was Continental Victory in 1996. Mission Brief looks to add her name to the list of fillies that have accomplished this most herculean fete. The Hambletonian will headline what may prove be one of the greatest days in harness racing history that will also include Wiggle It Jiggleit in the first jewel of the Pacing Triple Crown, The Cane Pace. Hambletonian Day is Saturday, August 8th at The Meadowlands. Post time is 12:00 P.M The Hambletonian Final will be race 13 on a 15-race program with a post time of 5:15 P.M. Darin Zoccali

When Yannick Gingras makes an appearance at a harness racing meeting at Vernon Downs, he has a strong tendency to be mightily successful on the racetrack.   Such was the case on Sunday (July 26) afternoon, when he swept the filly and colt divisions of the Harry M. Zweig Memorial stakes.   In the $185,000 Zweig for 3-year-old trotting fillies, Gingras settled Mission Brief ($2.60, part of entry) into the third spot out of her midpack post, tracking Wild Honey (John Campbell) and Magic Marker (Brian Sears) through a :27 initial quarter before brushing to the fore at race's midpoint.   Just as Wild Honey slackened through a :56.1 half mile, Mission Brief charged past, opening up her lead to two lengths on the far turn.   The daughter of Muscle Hill and Southwind Serena would hold that margin through a :55.3 final half, defeating Wild Honey in 1:51.4.   Magic Marker stayed on to be third, while Gatka Hanover (Brett Miller) rallied mildly off cover to take fourth.   Ron Burke trains Mission Brief for the Burke Racing Stable, Our Horse Cents Stables, the J&T Silva Stables, and Weaver Bruscemi. Now a 12-time winner, Mission Brief has amassed $791,417 in career earnings.   Mission Brief     A mere hour after Mission Brief asserted herself in the $185,000 Zweig division for 3-year-old trotting fillies, Pinkman ($2.10, part of entry) found room up the inside to strike late from a pocket trip in the $370,000 Zweig event for 3-year-old trotting colts and geldings.   Beginning from post 7 as part of a four-horse Jimmy Takter-trained entry, Pinkman left strongly, stringing out Habitat (Brian Sears) in the early going before yielding to stablemate Canepa Hanover (Takter) after a :27.3 initial quarter.   The gelded son of Explosive Matter and Margie Seelster drafted comfortably behind his stablemate through a :56.1 middle half, but was boxed at the apex of the far turn when Habitat attempted a first-over bid.   With racing room at a premium in upper stretch, Pinkman found room up the inside, passing Canepa Hanover in the final sixteenth.   He prevailed by three-quarters of a length in 1:52, a stakes record.   Canepa Hanover held second, while Workout Wonder (Daniel Dubé) rallied late to take third past Wings of Royalty (Tim Tetrick).   Also taking career win number 12, Pinkman stretched his career bankroll to $1,187,139 for Christina Takter, John Fielding, Jim Fielding, Joyce McClelland, and Herb Liverman.   Pinkmam   Live racing returns to Vernon Downs on Friday (July 31) evening, with first post at 6:45 p.m. Eastern time.   James Witherite

WASHINGTON, PA, July 26, 2015 -- Saturday's Adios eliminations card at The Meadows was supported by three other compelling stakes that, along with the elims, comprised 13 of the 15 races. Yannick Gingras and harness racing trainer Ron Burke each scored five times in those stakes while Tim Tetrick enjoyed a stake four-bagger. Highlights from Saturday's stakes: The Albatross, $217,340 PASS - 2-Year-Old Colt and Gelding Pacers Manhattan Beach zipped to the lead for Tetrick and rolled home in a stake-record 1:51.1, bettering the mark of 1:52 held jointly by Limelight Beach and Seventh Secret. Sossy's King Kong was second, 1-1/2 lengths back, with McPhil third. Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Geoffrey Lyons Mound and Wingfield Brothers campaign the Somebeachsomewhere-Benear gelding, a full brother to the former record-holder, Limelight Beach, winner of the 2014 Little Brown Jug. Check Six powered to the point with a quarter-pole move for Gingras and held off the late thrust of McDave to down him by a neck in 1:52.3, with Mr Right Hanover third. Burke trains the son of Somebeachsomewhere-Southwind Vanna for owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, William Switala and James Martin. "That was a horse race down the stretch -- he wouldn't let them go by him," Gingras said. "He has all kinds of potential, He has the size, a nice gait, speed and guts. He has the package. Pacing colts are a little fickle at this stage. In another month, they'll separate the men from the boys." Do Over Hanover pulled the pocket down the backside to avoid the faltering leader, Genovese, and held off Another Daily Copy by a neck to triumph in 1:52.4. Allie's Cruiser earned show. "He's very versatile and good mannered," said Jim Campbell, who trains the son of Western Ideal-Driven To Sin -- a $25,000 yearling acquisition -- for Jeffrey Snyder, Michael Snyder and Robert Unice. "I'll give him a week or two off because he's gone hard the last three weeks. We'll probably get him ready for the next sires stake leg." Spider Man Hanover and The Catamount Kid took the other Albatross divisions. The Romola Hanover, $182,016 PASS, 3-Year-Old Filly Pacers Doctor Terror unleashed a huge uncovered bid from sixth that carried her to victory in 1:50.4 for Corey Callahan and trainer Blake MacIntosh, who owns the daughter of Western Terror-Doctor Seth with Stuart McIntosh. Imagine Dragon was second by a head, with Momas Got A Gun third. With the victory, Doctor Terror soared over $200,000 in career earnings. The other Romola Hanover split also went to a daughter of Western Terror, as Safe From Terror and Gingras edged her stablemate, Storm Point, by a neck to win in 1:51.1. Macarena Mama completed the ticket. Burke conditions Safe From Terror for Our Horse Cents Stables, Stable 45 and J&T Silva Stables. $60,000 PA Stallion Series - 3-Year-Old Filly Pacers Off a layoff of more than two months, Dobre Povedane matched Icommandmyspirit's stake record of 1:51.3 when she followed cover and brushed home to defeat Lean On Yourself by 1-3/4 lengths, with Angel Or Terror third. Callahan drove for trainer John Butenschoen and owners David Prushnok and John Prushnok. "We thought she could use a little time," said Tyler Butenschoen, the winner's assistant trainer. "She raced good her last race but maybe seemed a little sore afterward. Nothing major, but we gave her a little time, and she trained back great. I expected her to race good, but a 1:51.3 mile was an eye-opener." Mezzanine Fashion and Repeat Please captured the other stallion series splits. Evan Pattak The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

Dismissed at 35-1, Cooperstown rallied wide and strong in the lane and became the most improbable of the trio of winners in Saturday's eliminations in the $525,000 Delvin Miller Pace for the Orchids Presented by Coors Lite at the harness racing meeting at The Meadows.  National Seelster and My Hero Ron, both favorites, captured the other eliminations. They'll be joined in next Saturday's final by Angelo J Fra, Dreams Beachboy, Lost For Words, Dude's The Man, Yankee Bounty and Trading Up. Ron Burke trained two elimination winners--Cooperstown and My Hero Ron, each piloted to victory by Yannick Gingras--and also will be represented by Yankee Bounty. Tony Alagna (Dreams Beachboy, Trading Up) will send a pair to the final. An open draw for Adios final post positions is set for Tuesday, 12:30 PM, and can be seen on Meadows Live! Cooperstown, whose most recent victory came in a non-winners of 3, appeared to be in an unenviable position--third over and chasing a leader, Tomy Terror, who'd enjoyed a 29.2 second-quarter breather. Gingras, however, didn't see it that way. "Actually, I liked my spot," he said. "I didn't think the leaders were the horses to beat, and I knew my cover would take me a long way." "I wasn't thinking about winning--he was 35-1 for a reason." "But around the last turn, I knew I'd made the final, anyway." Cooperstown blazed the back half in 54.1 and scored in 1:49.4, defeating Lost For Words by a neck. Dude's The Man rallied from last for show. Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Keith Pippi and Michelle Yanek campaign Cooperstown, a son of Four Starzzz Shark-American Charm. National Seelster, who is 4 for 4 in New York Sires Stake action this year, got away in third. Tim Tetrick moved him to the front at the quarter, a decision Tetrick said he nearly came to regret. "My horse was kind of falling asleep on the front," Tetrick said. "He's only cut it a few times, and he didn't know what to do up there." "When he saw that Yannick couldn't get around him, he got brave." "He swelled up enough to get to the wire." "I think he needs a helmet to follow for quite a while." "He can rough it some, but on the front, he's too lazy." "I won't do that again with him." The son of Bettor's Delight-No Strikes Against woke up in enough time to repel the stern first-over challenge of Rufo and triumph in 1:51.1, 3/4 lengths better than long shot Angelo J Fra. Dreams Beachboy completed the ticket. Chris Ryder conditions National Seelster for Robert Mondillo and Oompa's Farm. My Hero Ron took command early, put away his well-intended stablemate, Yankee Bounty, and downed him by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:50.3, with Trading Up third. It was the third straight win for the Well Said-Emma La Em gelding since his private acquisition by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Frank Baldachino. "He's a little bit lazy, but he's the kind of horse who will step up when they get to him," Gingras said. "Those were pretty soft fractions for this bunch, so I knew he'd have plenty left." ADIOS ELIMS NOTES: The Burke stable set two PRs on the evening. One, of course, was winning two Adios elims. The second may be even more impressive--the stable entered 24 horses, most ever for Burke on a single program at a single track. Ultimately, two were scratched. Nevertheless, Farm Manager Michelle Hill spent a good chunk of the preceding week preparing index cards for each horse with staff assignments. Evan Pattak  

A field of seven upper-conditioned level trotters headlined the Thursday afternoon harness racing (July 16) card from Harrah's Philadelphia, going for a purse of $18,000.   The race time favorite Wisenheimer (Geo. Napolitano Jr.) was looking for his twentieth career win.   The 6-year-old son of Revenue S was getting major post relief from his most recent outing at Pocono, which resulted in a third place finish against similar competition.   He was forwardly placed right from the get-go, setting fractions of :28.1, :57.2, and 1:26.2.   A challenge emerged just beyond the half, as Westside Lindy (Andrew McCarthy) drove up first-over.   His bid was short lived however, as he started to fade mid-way around the final turn.   That's when Ron Burke trainee House Of Cash (Yannick Gingras) bailed off of cover.   The 7-year-old son of Cash Hall was able to close well enough to overtake the collapsing pace, scoring the victory by a neck in 1:56 at odds of 7-1.   Winbak Charles M (Victor Kirby) closed gamely up the inside to finish a heartbreaking second, while pocket sitter Chinese Cuisine (Corey Callahan) finished third.   It was the 17th career win for House Of Cash, who returned $16.60, keying an exacta that paid $100.40.   House Of Cash is owned by Weaver Bruscemi and the Burke Racing Stables.   Michael Bozich

Somebeachsomewhere, newly-installed into the Living Harness Horse Hall of Fame, sired three of the five winners in the $268,940 first round of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for two-year-old pacing colts Wednesday night at the harness racing meeting at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.   The trio of winners by the great horse included two Ron Burke trainees: Check Six (out of Southwind Vanna), who quarter-moved to the top then snapped home in 55.4 - 27.3 to tally in 1:53.4 for driver Matt Kakaley and owners Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, William Switala and James Martin, along with 3 Brothers Stables' JK Will Power (whose dam is Whats New Pussycat), who paced an individual last quarter of 27.1 to be a 1:54.2 "pocket rocket" for pilot Yannick Gingras.   The other SBSW winner was Canadian invader Carter Beach (dam: Flaming Diablo), who was in the "feature division" which contained three of the five Pennsylvania All-Star winners earlier this month.   But in his first start "south of the border," Carter Beach showed his mettle by grinding uncovered in a 56.1 last half to post a neck triumph for driver Jody Jamieson and trainer/father Carl, the latter co-owner with Thomas Kyron and George Harrison.   Neither the fastest winner or the longest-priced winner was a son of "Somebeach," however.   Speed honors went in the opening division to the Western Ideal-Stolly Up Bluechip colt Spider Man Hanover, who produced a superhero-like 27.1 brush to the lead in the third quarter to win in 1:52.1 for driver David Miller, trainer Brian Brown, and owners Country Club Acres, Kenneth Vauper, Mike Mallett, and Milton Leeman.   50-1 shot Whata Twist, last and gapping at the half, and then shoved four-wide late on the far turn due to chain-reaction interference, still managed to rally in the final strides for a 1:53 triumph.   The Quik Pulse Mindale-Passage colt, driven by Brett Miller for trainer Chris Ryder, co-owner with Diamond Creek Racing, lived up to his name by producing a $107 return for a $2 win investment to his scattered backers.   Jerry Connors  

If the performances in Sunday night's Gold Series season opener at the harness racing meeting at Georgian Downs were any indication, Ontario has produced another world class group of two-year-old trotting fillies. Caprice Hill established the lofty standard for the evening in the first $52,500 division with a commanding gate-to-wire victory in 1:55.2. Allentown, NJ resident Yannick Gingras made his first-ever trip to Georgian Downs for the race, steering the daughter of Kadabra and Bramasole to the win for trainer Tony Alagna of Manalapan, NJ and owner Tom Hill of Lancashire, GB. "I baby raced her the first time (June 15) and I told Tony I'd like to stay with her, she showed me abilities that day," said Gingras. "She has a beautiful mouth on her, and great gaited, and she had all kinds of power, so I was very high on her and she proved me right tonight." Going unchallenged around the Georgian Downs five-eighths oval, Caprice Hill hit the wire four and one-quarter lengths ahead of Sky Angel and Las Vegas Seelster. Her 1:55.2 clocking was just two-fifths of a second off the 1:55 Ontario Sires Stakes record for two-year-old trotting fillies on a five-eighths mile track, set by the great Bee A Magician at Georgian Downs in an October, 2012 Gold Series event. "She's got the whole package, let's put it that way. She's got as much speed as anything, but her manners are very, very good." "You can do whatever you want with her," added Gingras. "Last baby race (June 27) I left and let somebody go, and came back in the stretch; just whatever you throw at her she's very professional about it, so I think that's her best quality right now." Trainer Alagna selected the half-sister to $278,868 winner Bramalea Hanover out of last fall's Harrisburg Yearling Sale and owner Tom Hill issued the winning bid at $55,000. Since then Caprice Hill has been a star pupil for Alagna and his mother Donna Lee Ozment. "She's a really special filly." "My mom trained her this winter in Chicago and she came out to us this spring and she's been fantastic from the get go," said Alagna. "I'm very happy with where we're at right now." In addition to the Ontario Sire Stakes, Alagna says Caprice Hill has a full complement of open stake races on her calendar so long as she stays healthy and continues to thrive on the racetrack. Also delivering an impressive front-end performance was locally-owned Could It Be Magic, who cruised home a 1:56.4 winner in the third division for Alliston, ON resident Fred Brayford and trainer-driver Wayne Henry of Arthur, ON. Unchallenged through fractions of :29, :59.2 and 1:28, Could It Be Magic trotted under the wire six lengths ahead of Devils Advocate and Danish Darby. "She can really get out of there off the gate, and then Wayne seems to be able to get control and they kind of respect her I guess," said Brayford. "Then when he needs the last quarter he just kind of lets her trot and so far she's been pulling away from them." Brayford and Henry acquired the daughter of Kadabra and $233,554 winner In The Mean Time for $18,000 from the Harrisburg Yearling Sale and Brayford says the filly seemed like a natural from her earliest lessons. "He (Henry) trains in Florida. I was down there for most of the winter and I used to go out and see her train, and she just seemed to be kind of a natural right from the start," explained Brayford. "She liked to trot. She didn't spend much time breaking, touch wood." Sunday's win was the second for Could It Be Magic, who also captured a conditioned event at Mohawk Racetrack on July 2. In the fourth division Emoticon Hanover stormed up the stretch to post a 1:56.3 victory and make it a hat trick for trotting sire Kadabra. The filly and driver Sylvain Filion of Milton, ON reeled in pacesetter and fan favourite Ready Any Time and Magical Wonder to record the one and one-quarter length victory for trainer Luc Blais of Lochaber Ouest, QC and owner Determination of Montreal, QC. The first foal from former Ontario Sires Stakes star Emmylou Who, a winner of 660,354 during her racing career, Emoticon Hanover was a $165,000 purchase from the Harrisburg Yearling Sale. The other Gold trophy went home from Georgian Downs with One Too Many, who was awarded the win when it was ruled that she was impeded by Silky Flashy Nfast in the stretch. Silky Flashy Nfast was moved back to second and Liberty Lane finished third in the 1:58.2 mile. Guelph, ON resident Anthony MacDonald drives and trains One Too Many for Rene Allard of Milford, PA, who purchased the Manofmanymissions daughter for $14,000 from the Canadian Yearling Sale. The two-year-old trotting fillies make their second Gold Series start at Mohawk Racetrack on July 23, while Ontario Sires Stakes excitement returns to Georgian Downs on Tuesday, July 14 with seven Grassroots divisions for the three-year-old trotting fillies.

Pennsylvania sired 2-year-old filly pacers took center stage at the harness racing meeting at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon (July 9) competing in five divisions worth just over $53,000 each. The highly regarded Pure Country (Brett Miller) looked every bit the part in the first division. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere rated smartly off the speed duel which developed shortly after the half between second favorite Heels On The Beach (John Campbell) and Ron Burke trainee Eloquent Grace (Yannick Gingras). Pure Country ($2.40) edged off the cones from the pocket spot at the top of the stretch, sweeping up three wide for an in-hand one length victory, stopping the clock in 1:53.2. She is owned by Diamond Creek Farms, and is trained by Jimmy Takter. Gerard Malanga trainee Sail To The Beach (Daniel Dube) was equally as impressive in her divisional win. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere sat off the pace until the half, when she uncorked a strong brush that pushed her well clear by the three-quarter pole. Her margin of victory was two lengths in the end, stopping the clock in 1:53.1. Danika P (Matt Kakaley) was a clear second, while My Lady Love (Brett Miller) overcame a severe shuffle to close for third. Sail To The Beach ($4.00) remained undefeated for owners Chester Orzell and Michael Talapa. Another Somebeachsomewhere filly proved prominent in division three, as Darlinonthebeach (Yannick Gingras) scored in front stepping style. The Nancy Johansson trainee faced a minor challenge up the backstretch from Sayulita (Brett Miller) before relegating her to the pocket by the three quarter pole. Darlinonthebeach ($3.40) won by an increasing four length margin in the end, stopping the clock in 1:53.1 for her first pair-mutuel win. Division four was home to an impressive performance by I Said Diamonds (Dave Miller). The daughter of Well Said benefitted when her main competition Shezarealdeal (Marcus Miller) made a break in the first turn, thus eliminating herself. I Said Diamonds ($3.00) then pounced on the leaders just after the quarter, never ceding command after completing the clearing move. She went on to win by a length, stopping the clock in 1:53 to remain undefeated in two starts. She is owned by Omar Beiler, Dennis Coons, and Susan Oakes, with Chris Oakes doing the training. The final division was taken by the front end stepping Peachy (Yannick Gingras). The daughter of Western Terror was able to rate back to back :29 quarters before facing a challenge from race favorite Skinny Dipper (Andrew McCarthy). Peachy ($9.80) was able to extend her lead off the soft fractions at three quarters, with plenty left to fend off the pocket sitting Corona Again in the stretch. She won by a little less than a length, stopping the timer at 1:54.1. It was the first career win for the Ron Burke trainee, who is owned by W J Donovan. Yannick Gingras lead all drivers with four wins on the day, while Corey Callahan, Scott Zeron, and Dave Miller each had three. Live racing resumes Friday at Harrah's Philadelphia with a first post of 12:40 PM. Michael Bozich

There were six divisions of PA Stallion Series races for 2-year-old filly pacers at Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (July 8) each going for a purse of $20,000. In the first division, it was Sue Oakes and Chuck Pompey's Nip's Beach Girl (Yannick Gingras) winning. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere brushed to the front just beyond the quarter pole, and was able to win comfortably under wraps. The Chris Oakes trainee is now two for two in her career, pacing a lifetime's best 1:54. She paid $3.40 to win. Division two saw the heavily favored Twice An Angel (Brett Miller) notch a convincing 3 length win. The daughter of Dragon Again had to brush the lead twice before securing the victory in 1:57 for White Birch Farms. It was the first career win for the Nancy Johansson trainee, who paid $2.60. In the third division, it was Fred Grant trainee Sweet As Sugar (Tom Jackson) springing the mild upset. The daughter of Yankee Cruiser drafted behind the heavily favored Hot Spot Hanover (Andy Miller) before closing fast up the inside to win in 1:56.2. The Birnam Wood Farm's filly paid $13.60 to win. There was another upset in division four, as Dirk Simpson trainee Sea Rose (Andy Miller) took the field start to finish. The daughter of Dragon Again was able to hold off the furious late close from Ive League (Yannick Gingras) for her first career win in 1:55.3. Sea Rose ($22.40) is owned by Desyllas Racing, Ed Bromley, Wiliiam Beck, and Carol Rieken. In the fifth division, it was Howard Taylor and Ed Gold's Northern Soiree (Corey Callahan) going all the way.

The Bruce Riegle trainee returned $10.60. Michael Bozich  

A field of 8 upper-conditioned level pacers took the stage for the featured event  at the harness racing meeting on Sunday afternoon (July 5) from Harrah's Philadelphia, going for a purse of $22,000. The heavy favorite in the wagering was Jimmy Takter trainee Somewhere In L A. The 4-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere is coming off of a stellar 2014 campaign, which saw him earn over $500,000 in 24 starts. He started quickly from the pole position, leading at the quarter in a rated :27.3. Scott Di Domenico trainee Bettors Glass drafted with pocket position, while Burke representative Rediscovery (Yannick Gingras) attacked first-over at the half (:56). Somewhere In L A maintained the advantage at three-quarters (1:23.3) before increasing the margin to 2 lengths at the head of the lane. Bettors Glass (Tim Tetrick) was able to make headway in the stretch tho, missing Somewhere In L A by just a head at the finish, in a final time of 1:50.4. It was the first win of the year for Somewhere In L A, who paid $3.00 to win. Bestjetyet (Geo. Napolitano Jr.) rallied for third. Somewhere In L A is owned by J&T Silva Stables, Deo Volente Farms, and T L P Stables. Michael Bozich

"I felt good in January, and that part hasn't changed," Teague said with a grin Saturday (July 4) after watching Wiggle It Jiggleit capture the $500,000 Max C. Hempt Memorial for 3-year-old male pacers at the harness racing meeting at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono by 1-1/2 lengths over Artspeak in 1:48.2. "He doesn't disappoint. Even in his loss, I wasn't jumping off the bandwagon. He's a good horse. I still think he's one of the best 3-year-olds I've ever had." Wiggle It Jiggleit has won 13 of 14 career races for owner Teague, trainer Clyde Francis and driver Montrell Teague. His only loss came June 20 in the North America Cup, where he was defeated by Wakizashi Hanover by three-quarters of a length. On Saturday in the Hempt, Wiggle It Jiggleit took the lead following a :26 opening quarter-mile, fought off a first-over challenge from Pierce Hanover on the backstretch, and then pulled away down the stretch. Artspeak finished second, followed by In The Arsenal and Wakizashi Hanover. "When he cleared to the front I knew he had a pretty good shot at it," Francis said. "Wakizashi has a big kick on the end of it but he wasn't making up much ground. Halfway down the lane nobody got close to him and I knew they weren't going to catch him then." Montrell Teague, who won the Hempt in 2011 with Custard The Dragon, was taking nothing for granted. "I was looking everywhere; I was looking for anybody," he said. "I saw Timmy (Tetrick with Wakizashi Hanover) pull three wide and that's when I popped the earplugs and stepped on the gas because I know how good his horse is coming off cover." Wiggle It Jiggleit, a son of Mr Wiggles-Mozzi Hanover, gave George Teague Jr. his fourth Hempt trophy. He trained Custard The Dragon as well as 2009 winner Johnny Z and 2008 champ Badlands Nitro. The gelding's next assignment will be the Meadowlands Pace. With the triumph, Wiggle It Jiggleit pushed his career earnings to $607,242. But the most important thing for Teague was the two people with whom he is sharing the ride. "Montrell and Clyde Francis are the best part for me," Teague said, adding about Francis, "We're like brothers. He works his (butt) off." Wiggle It Jiggleit  Luck Be Withyou overcomes post nine in Franklin triumph                               The $500,000 Ben Franklin free for all pace turned out to be as thrilling as a front-end win can be as Luck Be Withyou held on by the shortest of noses over Domethatagain in 1:49 on Saturday (July 4) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Domethatagain, driven by Simon Allard, left from the rail off the gate, but Luck Be Withyou and George Napolitano Jr. took command before the turn from post nine. Luck Be Withyou led through a quarter in :26.2 and the half in :55, which were favorable fractions in the eyes of the 4-year-old horse's owner, John Craig. "I didn't think it was so bad when it was :26.2, because he got the lead in :26 last week in the slop, with a half in :53 and change," he said. "When I saw :55 at the half, I said 'There are good horses back there like Foiled Again and State Treasurer and they are going to come at him. I hope he has enough.'" Luck Be Withyou kept on chugging through three-quarters in 1:21.4. He was a length clear at the top of the stretch, with only Domethatagain coming at him up the rail. It took a long look at the photo before Luck Be Withyou was declared the winner, with favored State Treasurer third. Luck Be Withyou paid $10 to win as the public's second choice. "He had just enough," Craig said with a grin. "It's hard to explain to people the adrenaline rush you get when you see a race like that." Luck Be Withyou, by Western Ideal-Trim Hanover, is trained by Chris Oakes, who got some credit from his owner. "All the credit goes to those who work on the horse," he said. "I just watch and pay the bills." Luck Be Withyou Pinkman bounces back to win Beal in world record score                                           Pinkman rebounded from his first loss of the year by posting a gate-to-wire win in Saturday's (July 4) $500,000 Earl Beal Jr. Memorial for 3-year-old male trotters, holding off stablemate Uncle Lasse by a head in a world-record 1:51.3 at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Pinkman, last year's Dan Patch Award winner for best 2-year-old male trotter, and driver Yannick Gingras got the lead with a :27.1 opening quarter-mile and then controlled the race from there, going to the half in :56.2. Centurion ATM made a first-over bid on the backstretch, getting within a head of the leader, but was unable to get to the front. In the stretch, the Jimmy Takter-trained Pinkman held off Uncle Lasse to his inside to post his fourth victory in five starts this season. Pinkman's time was the fastest-ever mile by a 3-year-old gelding trotter on a five-eighths-mile track. Crazy Wow finished third followed by Centurion ATM. Last week, Pinkman finished second to Wicker Hanover in his Beal elimination and was found to be sick. "I can't complain about the trip, the fractions, everything went his way," Gingras said about Pinkman's performance in the Beal final. "He's got that intimidating speed; he can leave the gate so good. Last week leaving the gate I knew he wasn't quite right because he didn't leave the gate like he did today. Usually the first couple steps he just snaps right out. "Today he was back to himself and I don't even think he's a hundred percent. I'd say last week he was 50 or 60 percent and he was probably like 90 today. I think Jimmy can get him even better than this." For his career, Pinkman has won 10 of 13 races and earned $924,300 for owners Christina Takter, John and Jim Fielding, Joyce McClelland, and Herb Liverman. "I saw him open up at like 5-1 (odds) tonight and Crazy Wow was 3-5 or something," Gingras said. "They've got to start giving him credit. He doesn't do it flashy, he does it the way he did it today, but he gets it done. He's a winner." Pinkman  Bettor Be Steppin wins wild Lynch Memorial  What was a wide-open race on paper became a wide-open finish as Bettor Be Steppin and Corey Callahan got up to win the $300,000 James Lynch Memorial for 3-year-old pacing fillies Saturday night (July 4) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono in 1:50.4. The race was heated from the start as The Show Returns gunned to the lead from post nine for driver Tim Tetrick. Favored Stacia Hanover (Scott Zeron) cleared to the lead in a first quarter in :26, with the outer flow setting up going to the half. Bettor Be Steppin wasn't a part of that forward flow, however, as she was shuffled back to last. According to her connections, stablemate Divine Caroline (David Miller) was getting the better trip "At the half I thought we were dead," said trainer Joe Holloway. "She was fourth on the rail, fourth or fifth, just totally boxed. Divine Caroline was on the outside, loaded with pace, so I was hoping to see her go. I was trying to watch them both and at the half I thought the only shot I had was Divine Caroline." Wicked Little Minx (Brett Miller), a 50-1 longshot, came first-over with Sassa Hanover (Yannick Gingras) third-over through a half in a swift :54.1. They paced through three-quarters in 1:21.4 before the leaders began to struggle and the closers came closing. Momas Got A Gun (Jim Morrill Jr.) was sitting third on the rail and somehow found room inside. She stuck a head in front before Single Me (Brian Sears) and Bettor Be Steppin came from way out. From the far outside, Bettor Be Steppin stuck a nose in front of Single Me at the wire. Momas Got A Gun finished third by a neck. The win was the fourth in seven starts this year for Bettor Be Steppin. She paid $33.60 to win. The 1-7 exacta paid $895.60 and the 1-7-6 trifecta paid $10,958.10. "This was a good horse last year," said Ted Gewertz, who co-owns the Bettor's Delight-Two Steppin' Sally filly with Val D'Or Farms and Rojan Stables. "She was having a little trouble earlier in the year. [2014 Horse of the Year] JK She'salady didn't make the final, so that helped." Bettor Be Steppin T.J.

Trainer Anthony De Francesco III had four training wins on the Wednesday afternoon (July 1) card at the harness racing meeting at Harrah's Philadelphia. The first of which came when Joseph Laino's ER Room (Yannick Gingras) survived a :26.2 opening quarter to get the job done. The 6-year-old son of Cambest won for the thirteenth time in his career. It was his third win of the season, setting a lifetime's best 1:52 in the process. He paid $4.20. Six races later, Louis A. and Louis M. Di Tullio's Red Carpet Dude (Dave Miller) scored the upset victory ($57.20) The six-year-old son of Camluck tracked live cover up the backstretch, establishing prime position for his final push, which ended in a two length victory, and a 1:53.1 clocking. It was his first win for De Francesco III, who is also part owner. Once again the Di Tullio's reached the winner's circle, this time with six-year-old gelded pacer Special Blend (Eric Abbatiello). The son of The Panderosa drafted in the pocket spot after leading the first quarter-mile. He was able to punch through the passing lane for his eleventh career victory out of ninety-nine career starts. It was his first win of the season, paying $33.00 to win. Just two races later, in the live finale, Dante Scattolini Sr.'s Sonny McDreamee overcame post eight to score the upset win. The ten-year-old trotting gelding by Angus Hall went right to the front and made every call a winning one, stopping the timer in 1:57.4. It was his twenty-second win out of one hundred and sixty lifetime starts, and his first win in the De Francesco barn. He paid $21.40 to win. There was no winner in the pick four. The carryover for Thursday afternoon is $1,935.43. Post time is 12:40 PM, with the pick four getting underway in race seven. Mike Bozich

It was a big day for harness racing driver Yannick Gingras on Sunday afternoon (June 28) at Harrah's Philadelphia. Gingras had a natural hat trick, winning races 5,6, and 7. He followed that up by sweeping the late pick three and the late double for seven wins on the program. He also swept the co-featured events on Sunday, open affairs both on the pace and trot. In the open trot, it was Gural Hanover (Yannick Gingras) getting his first victory of the year. The 4-year-old son of Crazed was parked out the entire first quarter (:27.4) before clearing the lead. After rating the half (:56.4), he was able to maintain a solid lead throughout. He got three-quarters in 1:24.1, and the final time in 1:53, as he won by three lengths in the end. My Love Bi (Geo. Napolitano Jr.) finished second, while World Cup (Joe Bongiorno) finished third. It was the twelfth career win out of twenty starts for Gural Hanover ($4.40), who is owned by Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Little E LLC, and Panhellenic Stables. In the open pace, it was Brittany Farms and John Cherveny's Allstar Legend (Yannick Gingras) winning his fourth straight. The son of Four Starzzz Shark led the first quarter (:26.1), but was cleared by Doctor Butch (Tim Tetrick) who was three wide around the first turn. Allstar Legend drafted behind this pacesetter through a half in :54.1 and three quarters in 1:21.4 before engaging the leader in the stretch. Allstar Legend went on to win by a length, stopping the clock in 1:50.1 for his seventeenth career win out of sixty-one starts. Doctor Butch was second, while Fancyfreeshark (Allan Davis) finished third. The Ron Burke trainee paid $4.80 to win. Michael Bozich

Vernon, N.Y. -- Both brushing to the fore and opening up at will on their respective rivals, Barn Doll ($2.70) and Crazy Wow ($2.30, part of entry) proved dominant in a pair of harness racing  Empire Breeders Classic events for New York-sired 3-year-old trotters on Sunday (June 21) afternoon at Vernon Downs.   The $248,275 Classic for fillies saw Zanna Blu (Yannick Gingras) stride to the early lead past her stablemate Allerage Belle (Jim Morrill, Jr.), with Barn Doll tracking that pair comfortably through a :28 initial quarter. Moving off the clubhouse turn, Jeff Gregory brushed to the fore with the 3-year-old Conway Hall filly, clearing Zanna Blu with no trouble before controlling a :56.2 half mile. Barn Doll accelerated on the far turn through a :27.3 third sectional, leaving her eight rivals well in her wake after edging clear at head-stretch. She ultimately trounced the others, winning by 6-1/4 lengths in 1:52.1. Lock Down Lindy (Tim Tetrick) rallied down the center of the track to take second, while Jewels in Hock (John Cambell) kicked cover off the far turn to finish third.   Trainer Steven Pratt co-owns Barn Doll with Nancy Pratt and the Purple Haze Stables, LLC.   An overflow field of 11 3-year-old colts and geldings contested a $255,325 Classic event, with Crazy Wow overcoming a second-row start to obliterate his competition--and the previous track record for sophomore geldings. Yannick Gingras floated Crazy Wow second-over to follow entrymate Habitat (Jim Morrill, Jr.) to a :26.4 first quarter, continuing on without cover to clear the lead upon exiting the clubhouse turn. The Crazed gelding posted a :56.4 middle half and then edged clear of his entrymate in upper stretch, amassing a 6-1/2 length margin of victory in 1:51.1. Habitat held second, while Fashion Creditor (David Miller) rallied from a third-over trip to take third while well detached of the Ron Burke trainees.   The Our Horse Cents Stables, the JT 45 group, and the J&T Silva Stables, LLC own Crazy Wow, who knocked 1-2/5 seconds off Gym Tan Laundry's 1:52.3 mark for 3-year-old trotting geldings, taken in 2012.   Fireyourguns breaks his own all-age pacing record   Earlier in the 14-race program, Fireyourguns ($2.90) set blistering fractions and held sway from a late-charging JK Panache (Yannick Gingras) to take the $10,000 Open Pace in a track record 1:47.3. The 6-year-old American Ideal remains undefeated on the year in six starts, taking two-fifths of a second off his former mark with Jim Morrill, Jr. in the bike. Double millionaire Golden Receiver, reunited with 2011 World Driving Championship runner-up Corey Callahan, was all-out to chase the pacesetter, holding third. Trainer Terence McClory co-owns Fireyourguns with Jennifer and Robert Lowe.   NY Sire Stakes glamour boys contest four undercard events   In addition to the pair of Empire Breeders Classic events and Fireyourguns's track record mile, 3-year-old pacing colts and geldings squared off in a quartet of New York Sire Stakes events, offering a combined purse of $122,400. My Spirit Soars ($5.50, Jim Morrill, Jr., 1:49.3), National Seelster ($8.60, Andy Miller, 1:50.2), A Bettor Hat ($7.30, Morrill, 1:51.3), and Artistic Major ($8.50, Scott Zeron, 1:50.3) proved victorious in their respective races.   Live racing returns to Vernon Downs on Friday (June 26) evening, with post time set for 6:45 p.m. Eastern time.   by James Witherite, Vernon Downs
