Lexington, Ky-- Unlike many amateur programs one of the unique rewards for members of the CKG Billings Harness Driving Series is that participants are afforded the opportunity to compete on various size harness racing tracks. Case in point; Thursday's Midwest region Billings trot at the Red Mile following competitions last week over the double-oval at Delaware, Ohio Today at the renowned racetrack in Lexington, Ky a 7-horse field went to post and unlike many other competitions three of the seven drivers were ladies and the eventual winner was a member gentle sex, Kiara "the Columbus Clipper" Morgan. After getting a perch up behind Inukchuk Chuck , Ms Morgan followed in the footsteps of "Hurricane Hannah" Miller who had won two races with the veteran gelding at Delaware, Ohio the previous week. Displaying a unique talent of keeping her horse alive Morgan sat relaxed on the limb and the veteran trotter kept marching forward despite receiving the cold shoulder from Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford who was on the lead with Utopia. Still side- by-side nearing the three quarters they were joined by Tartufo Lindy and driver "Chicago George" Bonomo. However, in the deep stretch Utopia's stride began to shorten and Morgan and Bonomo raced to the wire, with their horses noses apart and after the long study of the photo Kiara Morgan and Inukchuk Chuck were declared the winner, a short nose better than Tartufo Lindy. Utopia held on for the show dough. Owned by Clifford Grundy and trained by Nick Surick, the altered son of Muscles Yankee paid $3.60 for win. And for the 20 year old Kiara Morgan, who is certainly a talented and up- and- coming chauffeur, it was her 14th seasonal victory in just 35 starts--most at the Ohio county fairs. by John Manzi, for the Billings Series  

Saratoga Springs, NY-- Sam "the Man" King is a happy man. And why shouldn't he be, after all, he just scored a harness racing driving victory at Saratoga Raceway copping a $6,000 CKG Billings Trot with Windsun Missile in a 1:57 clocking. And what made this victory extremely gratifying for the 20 year old was because it was his first lifetime driving victory. When the gate sprung King set sails for the front-end but he ran into a buzz saw in the presence of Muzzys Muscles and driver "Smokin Joe" Faraldo, and it wasn't until the two passed the first stanza in a stiff :28.1 that Faraldo yielded command. Once on top King led his competition by the halfway point in :58. But up the backside Muzzys Muscle began to trot away and at the three quarters he had three lengths on the field, a margin he held all the way to the wire. Royal Surprise , who benefited from a two-hole trip couldn't close the gap in the lane and finished second for Brett "the Kid" Beckwith . Third place went to Someway Same Hall, driven by Tony" Shifty" Ciuffetelli. It was the winners fourth seasonal triumph by the 6-year-old Kadabra gelding. He is owned by Thomas Mc Tygue and trained by Michelle Crawford. by John Manzi, for the Billings Series

Northfield, Ohio-- As what often happens when several harness racing horses charge for the lead when the gate springs on a double oval undoubtedly there will be some who never see the pylons. And although that scenario occurred tonight in a Billings Trot at Northfield Park, "Tiny Tim" Miller and Dominus Hanover overcame the overland route and rallied to a 1:58.3 victory despite being parked the entire mile. Perhaps it was because Miller never rushed his charge away from the gate and was content to keep Dominus Hanover near the back of the pack as William "Dusty" Rhoades cut swift fractions of :28.3-:57.4 and 1:28 with Romeo and led the competition all the way to the top of the stretch. While Rhoades was showing the way up front Miller was back in seventh position getting cover from United Bi (Alesha "the Lethal Lady" Binkley). As the field neared the three quarters Miller sent Dominus Hanover around United Bi and took aim at the leader (Romeo). Picking up horses on the way Miller unleashed his charge and rallied to a three-quarter length victory over Better Call Saul ("Chicago George" Bonomo) who had enjoyed a covered journey from the half. Romeo held on for the show dough. Dominus Hanover, a 6-year-old Muscle Massive gelding owned by his driver, paid $6.20. For Miller, it was his first seasonal driving victory and 46th of his amateur career. by John Manzi, for the Billings Series

WILKES-BARRE, PA - On the C.K.G. Billings circuit Bob Hechkoff may be known as "The Headhunter," but at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Sunday night he was known as the longshot player's best friend after guiding the Andover Hall gelding Five Towns to a $63.20 shocking victory in the $15,000 Billings #2 Eastern Sector Final. "Smokin' Joe" Faraldo was certainly smokin' out of the gate with Tough Get Going, leaving from the rail in :27.4 to put the field in behind, then backing off the half to 1:00.1. The price of trotting went up down the backstretch as Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford moved up with favored Starsaboveallerage behind Super Manning and "Joltin'" Joe Pennacchio's uncovered bid to the 1:29.3 three-quarters. Tough Get Going and Faraldo shook off the first-over, but Hechkoff, who had guided Five Towns into the two-hole early, rallied his veteran winner of $425,264 to go by Tough Get Going and Faraldo by ¾ of a length, with Oldford and Starsaboveallerage third, and the entire field of eight competitively and commendably separated by less than five lengths at the wire. With the victory, Hechkoff assured himself of a spot in the Eastern Region Gold Cup Final - the prime prize for the area's amateur horsemen. His equine partner Five Towns is trained by Kyle Spagnola is owned by Hechkoff's R.B.H. Ventures Inc. and Spagnola Racing LLC. In a $17,500 conditioned trot, Muscle M Up parlayed a second-over trip into a half-length victory over Prairie Fortune, who quarter-moved and set most of a fast pace, in a swift 1:53. Matt Kakaley handled the driving duty for trainer Ã…ke Svanstedt and Knutsson Trotting Inc.  

By John Manzi, for the Billings Series Wauseon, Ohio- After purchasing Frost Free Hanover in late May, owner "Lawbook" Larry Farley had entrusted the harness racing driving duties to various catch-drivers but on Saturday afternoon (August 31) the retired attorney and talented amateur driver jumped up behind his charge and guided him to 2:02.1 triumph in a Midwest region C.K.G. Billings trot at the Fulton County Fair. Sent off as second choice from the pole position in the five-horse field Farley sent his trotter to the front and played hard ball with I'll Tell You What and driver Richard "the Wolverine" Roach parking them the entire mile through fractions of :29.3; :59.1 and 1:30 2 before the challenger began to fade. Up the backside Steve "You're Never too" Oldford and Stirling Boudica became the main threat but they couldn't overtake the leader as Frost Free Hanover hung tough all the way to the wire. Oldsford's trotter finished 1-1/4 lengths behind the winner. Walltocousins and driver Gregg "Fast Greggy" Keidel finished third, some 7-1/4 lengths behind Frost Free Hanover..

Before starting from the two-hole Arnold had to get her trotter back on gait and when she did the talented miss found that Nono Lindy was some 15 lengths behind the leader, Winbak Charles M and driver "Lawbook Larry" Farley, at the first stanza in :29.4 with plenty of ground to make up. as the race progressed.

Sent off as the odds-on favorite in the odds-on favorite in the eight-horse field Dabunka navigated the mile distance in a stunning 1:55.3. When the starter said "go" Long hustled his charge to the lead from the two-hole and played catch me if you can. And nobody could. The veteran pacer zipped through the first two stanzas in 28 and :57 with only a one length lead over Eas Ideal (F. Bourgault). But when Dabunka headed up the backside he was in high gear and opened up seven lengths on the field as he passed the three quarters in 1:26.1.

Columbus, Ohio--The CKG Billings Harness Driving Series made a stop at Scioto Downs on Thursday, August 8 for a trotting contest for members of the Midwest region and the lethal lady from Washington Court House Ohio, Alesha Binkley displayed her considerable talents when she turned back six others with a picture-perfect drive to score a 1:58 victory with Hititoutofthepark. After settling in the two-hole and smartly allowing Steve "You're Never Too" Oldford and Smart Flight to show the way to the first stanza in a speedy :27.4 Ms Binkley was content to follow the leader. And when Kelly "Sky" Walker moved Security Guard first-up followed closely by Mego Moss and driver Gregg "Fast Greggy" Keidel when they headed up the backside Binkley sat chilly and waited. As the leaders came off the final turn and were looking for paydirt it was clear that Walker and Keidel didn't have enough horse to capitalize. But as Smart Flight's strides began to shorten Binkley's charge began to make a serious challenge and just before the photo camera flashed Hititoutofthepark got his head in front and went on to victory. Two lengths in the rears in third place was Security Guard. It was Binkley's fifth winning drive and the sixth seasonal victory for the son of Yankee Glide who paid $5.20.

Monticello, NY--Two different events for amateur drivers were featured on the eight-race card at Monticello Raceway on Thursday afternoon, Aug 8 and when the judges declared each official, Tony "the Capo" Verruso was victorious with Six Bax in a 1:58.4 mile in the Billings trot while Paul Minore copped the NAADA Trot with Warrawee Preferred in 1:59.4 The local driving colony at the Mighty M is always very cooperative in helping to fill these amateur races and today was no exception. And strangely, local horseman, Gary Messenger trained both winners and both happened to be owned by Dr Scott Woogen, an owner of many standardbreds as well as being an accomplished amateur driver. In the Billings trot Verruso sent Six Bax immediately to the lead from post two and they led their competitors by the first stanza in a swift :28.3 while parking out the favorite Someway Same Hall (Tony "Shifty" Ciuffetelli, Jr.). With Six Bax along the pylons and Someway Same Hall on the limb they trotted by the half in :57.4. Up the backside Someway Same Hall tired and "Joltin' Joe" Pennacchio hustled Super Manning up alongside Six Bax and they raced as a team around the final turn. "My horse was rough in the turns and Pennacchio kept the pressure us but once we straightened for home Six Bax flattened out and we opened a short lead which held all the way to the wire,"Verruso explained. At the wire Six Bax was length winner over Pennacchio's trotter. Tough Get Goings garnered the show dough for Smokin' Joe" Faraldo Six Bax paid $5.80 for win.

They raced one-two all the way to the top of the stretch where Minore angled his trotterout to challenge the leader and in the deep stretch Warrawee Preferrede went on to an easy one length victory. "I was little more than as passenger as my horse, an 8-year old, knew just what to do when we followed the leader to the top of the lane" Minore said. "And when I moved him out to challenge he trotted around the leader and away to an easy victory," Minore said.. Monica Banca finished third with Master of Excuses Sent off as the odds-on favorite Warrawee Preferred paid $3.80. by John Manzi, for both the Billings and NAADA

Northfield, Ohio---- The ever-traveling CKG Billing, the granddaddy of all amateur driving series, moved back to the fast harness racing double-oval at Northfield Park for a $5000 trot at the Summit Fair and when Steve" You're Never Too" Oldford sent the odds-on favorite, Smart Flight, to the lead and from there it was Katey bar the door as the 6-year-old Airzoom Lindy gelding cruised to an easy 1:58 victory. "When there were three scratches and we moved in to the the five hole I felt fairly confident that if my horse raced to his abilities that we'd be tough to beat," Oldford said. "He was strong when we left the gate and he was strong the entire mile." In a field shortened to seven starters after the late scratches, Oldford zipped his trotter to the front as Bob "Lumberman" Troyer and Ubanji yielded command and felt comfortable to sit a two-hole trip as the first quarter timer flashed 29 seconds. Smart Flight and Ubanji were one-two as they passed the half in :59 and up the backside Oldford was looking for horses as he opened a two-length lead. Gregg "Fast Greggy" Keidel was the first to move when he angled Mego Moss off the pylons but her progress was stalled when "Easy Dave" Russo took over third place with Osprey Vision as the leaders headed for the final turn. But at the three quarters in 1:28.2 and still safely in front Smart Flight had two lengths on his challengers and in the lane Bob Troyer and Ubanji made a futile run at Smart Flight but Oldford's charge was still full of trot and went on to a 1-1/4 length victory.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Some harness racing fans are not satisfied with just watching the races from rail, they want to be on the other side — and in the driver’s seat — and they can! Many enthusiasts, both men and women are part of amateur harness racing clubs in the tri-state area. Most have day jobs but on weekends they trade business attire for racing colors. According to the United States Trotting Association website: “An amateur driver is a driver who has not received valuable compensation for his or her services as a driver. To participate in amateur driving events, the person must hold a driver's license issued by the United States Trotting Association.". Most amateur drivers donate the percent of the purse money won that a driver would normally receive, to charity, raising money for a variety of good causes. While there are races restricted to amateurs, the amateurs can and often do compete against the pros. For esample, Mal Burroughs, then of Flemington, N.J., won the harness racing’s most prestigious race for trotters — the Hambletonian with Malabar Man in 1997. Only one other amateur has won that race since it started in 1926. The other was Harrison Hoyt, who won it in 1948. The Hambletonian with Malabar Man in 1997 However, it doesn't have to be a world class stakes race to be fun. New Jerseyan, Matt Zuccarello, a Field Sales Representative for Herr Foods Inc. by day, fell in love with harness racing when he attended the races as a kid with his father, at the legendary Roosevelt Raceway on Long Island. “I love so many things including the excitement, speed (even though it feels like slow motion at times), strategy, and camaraderie among all the amateurs. When you win a race and get your picture taken in the winner’s circle, especially surrounded by friends and family, it is awesome!” Over Memorial Day weekend at the Meadowlands, Zuccarello just missed getting his picture taken in the winner’s circle, finishing second in a division of the GSY Amateur Driving Club series. Zuccarello also competes with the North American Amateur Drivers Association and the CKG Billings series, and in a total of 16 starts this year he has two seconds and two thirds. Since 2012 he has raced 347 times, won 12, as second 34 times and was third 39 times. Anthony Verruso, a Flight Attendant for Jetblue Airways also just missed winning the CKG Billings trot at the Meadowlands on May 25 — by a head. Just because they are amateurs, doesn’t mean they are any less competitive than the pros. In 2019 Verruso has won twice and finished second five times in 14 starts with his most recent win at Monticello Raceway in New York. “It is an experience like no other. Racing at high speeds in such tight quarters and having to make split second decisions is as exhilarating as anything you could ever do. And there is no feeling like sweeping a field up the back side and opening lengths to win a race,” Verruso said. He is also president of the Delvin Miller Amateur Drivers' Association which runs the Billings series which will conclude in November with the top point earners earning a start in the final. Verruso was introduced to racing a t a young age. “My Dad was a workout clocker and went to Roosevelt and Yonkers every night for what was my entire life. He told me I could go with him if I got A's in school. So I did and he took me on a regular basis from when I was 10 years old. I learned to clock the workouts too but from those early days on I wanted to be Carmine Abbatiello,” he said referring to the professional driver who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1986. For Anthony Beltrami, a state trial judge for the Court of Common Pleas of Northampton County, Pa., driving in races is a welcome change of pace. He loves, “that I get to do something that is really fun and totally different from anything else I do.” His father owned harness horses as long as he can remember. “Before I went to law school, I worked as a groom for Earl Beal, Jr. and David Rovine. Several years ago, I got my trainer's and driver's licenses.” This year he has two wins, a second and a third from eight starts. Men and women compete on equal terms in harness racing. Hannah Miller, not only competes with the men, she often beats them. She was the first woman to earn National Amateur Driver of the Year honors in 2015.  The next year she represented the United States in the amateur World Cup in Budapest, Hungary. So how does one get started in amateur harness racing? Zuccarello said, “I told my dad that one day I wanted to drive and own horses. Years later, I took a class in Delaware, Ohio, where the Little Brown Jug is raced at, was connected to a trainer, Dennis Laterza and his son, who I still have horses with, learned how to clean stalls, jog horses, train and equip them, and I was hooked.” Zuccarello suggests attending the USTA driving school, although none are scheduled for 2019, check for 2020 opportunities. Next, Zuccarello said, “get connected with a local trainer near where you live to learn everything about the industry. Once you get this experience under your belt, I would suggest purchasing an inexpensive horse to use for qualifiers while also networking with other trainers and try to secure as many qualifying drives as you can and this will help you work your way towards getting your amateur license.” “You need to start from the ground up. Find an old time guy who likes to impart knowledge and listen to what he says. Don't just go and jump in the seat and think you can drive. First learn to muck a stall. Then understand how to put on the equipment. Jogging would be the next progression and finally going training miles. From there try to get drives in qualifiers to obtain a license. In my opinion, that is the best road to success,” Verruso said. “Find a trainer/stable that you can work for and start out as a groom — hopefully one that can eventually jog and train the horses you care for. Be willing to put in long hours and to learn as much as you can along the way, said Beltrami. See for more information on local clubs. For the younger set, the Harness Horse Youth Foundation offers summer camps at area tracks and training centers. At the camps kids learn to care for and drive Trottingbred ponies, miniature versions of Standardbreds.Several former campers have gone on to become professionals.

WASHINGTON, PA, June 1, 2019 -- Brent "Clipper" Davis was razor sharp at The Meadows Saturday, keeping Beatrice alive outside as the harness racing duo captured a $10,000 leg of the C.K.G. Billings Amateur Trot. Davis and Beatrice were out before the half to start their sustained drive . . . and even wider in the stretch. "At the three-eighths, a guy behind me came early, and I just wanted to make sure I had her out with a little room," Davis said. "I had to come three wide in the last turn, which usually isn't a very good spot. But she's really a professional horse. She does a good job." The 5-year-old daughter of Photo Color-Lima Simplicity had enough in the tank to hold off the Lightning Lane charge of Bob "The Lumberman" Troyer and Ubanji by a neck in 1:57.3. Alesha "The Hoosier Hotshot" Binkley (Hititoutofthepark) and Stephen "You're Never Too" Oldford completed the Top 4. Ed Teefey campaigns Beatrice, who extended her career bankroll to $133,114. Davis indicated he'll keep Beatrice in the Billings series but might slip in some overnights as well. "She's a good amateur horse -- easy to drive -- but she's a good raceway horse as well," he said. "She can hold her own with the professionals. She's just as nice." By Evan Pattak for The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association
