Grand Swan, with LeWayne Miller in the bike, was able to overcome the outside post position nine to find the winner's circle in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final and make a clean sweep of the opening round of the stakes action. After scoring in 1:56.4 in her elimination last week, Grand Swan turned in another dominant performance to stop the timer in 1:56. Miller sent Grand Swan away from the gate but would have to work for position as a host of others also left alertly. Measuredperfection and Ricky Macomber Jr., the heavy post time favorite, were the first to get a call through the opening panel in :28 but eventually yielded the lead to Grand Swan who was unable to find a spot along the rail. Grand Swan pressed on the front and led the field through splits of :57.4 and 1:27.4 before being tested. As the field turned for home, Macomber Jr. tipped Measuredperfection out from behind the leader and she quickly trotted up to engage the leader. Just when it looked like Measuredperfection may have the edge, Miller asked Grand Swan for more and she dug in gamely to get the win by a length. Measuredperfection was forced to settle for second place honors while Sea Swan and Verlin Yoder utilized a ground saving trip to round out the trifecta. Sent off at odds of 4-1, Grand Swan returned $10.80 to her backers at the betting windows. "I knew I had to leave to get some kind of position," Miller, who also trains and co-owns the filly, noted after the win. "I had to use her quite a bit getting to the front but she's pretty special. She's a special filly." With the win, the daughter of Swan For All-Queen Mum recorded her second seasonal win from four lifetime outings. The 1:56 clocking established a new lifetime best for Grand Swan as she pushed her career earnings to $50,125 for owners LeWayne Miller and Joe Yoder.

ANDERSON, IN - Wisdom Tree returned to Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and continued her winning ways in the featured event of the evening, the $142,000 Nadia Lobell Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies, on Friday, July 6. With Sam Widger in the bike, Wisdom Tree turned in a sharp, front-running effort to stop the timer in 1:49.4 and establish a new track record for sophomore pacing fillies in the process. The previous record of 1:50.1 was established in 2016 by Rockalina and driver Mike Peterson. Widger had the heavy 3-5 favorite firing away with the wings of the gate but Ricky Macomber Jr. and Strong Opinion were a step quicker and grabbed the early lead through the opening panel in a snappy :25.3. Wisdom Tree was second but not for long. Widger gave her the green light as the field approached the half and she quickly grabbed command before the second station in :53.3. Michael Oosting and Double A Mint were next in line third and would begin the long, first-over attack just before the three-quarters in 1:21.4. The blazing speed continued but Wisdom Tree appeared strong on the front. Double A Mint was matching strides with the leader but Wisdom Tree wasn't going down without a fight. Utilizing a :28 final panel, Wisdom Tree was able to put away Double A Mint to finish a length and a half to the good. Reign on Me and LeWayne Miller utilized a ground saving trip to rally for third place honors. Wisdom Tree returned $3.40 to her backers at the betting windows. "It was a little fast to the half," Widger noted in the winner's circle. "Looking at the program, I thought we were the best in the race and she has always been strong on the front. She's a really nice filly who knows her work. She just goes out there and does her job." Trained by Jeff Cullipher, who co-owns with Thomas Pollack, Wisdom Tree scored her third consecutive victory and seventh seasonal win from nine outings. The 1:49.4 clocking was a new lifetime best as the daughter of Betterthancheddar-Wisdom pushed her career bankroll to $241,660.

After a track record performance in his elimination last week, Katkin American recorded his third consecutive Hoosier Park victory for trainer Verlin Yoder and owner, breeder, Brett Boyd. Katkin American was won his last three outings by a combined 27 lengths. "We are so thankful to so many folks that helped get this horse here," Boyd said of his prodigy in the winner's circle. "It takes a lot of people to get one here and we are so thankful to everyone who helped us along the way. I trained his mother and he reminds me a lot of her. We love this colt and the Yoders have done such a great job with him." Unraced at two, the son of Guccio-Katkin has now won three of five lifetime starts. With the win, Katkin American nearly doubled his lifetime purse earnings to push his career bankroll to $62,000. On the pacing side of things, Rockinbeach and Ricky Macomber Jr. converted a pocket trip into a 1:49.4 score in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings.

Horses began to fan out across the track but the biggest threat was to the inside. Sitting last at the top of the stretch, Widger utilized the passing lane to find late racing room and Mildrix found a :27.1 final panel to get the win by a head.

Always Woggy wanted her turn on the front and she grabbed the lead just past the half as the torrid pace continued through middle splits of :54.2 and 1:23.4. As the field rounded the final turn, Sam Widger had LA Always A Martini applying pressure first-over with the post time favorite Voom Or Bang and Dale Hiteman well placed second-over. The quick fractions began to take its toll on Always Woggy and just as she began to retreat, Dee Rocks was winding up to strike from the back of the field. Tetrick tipped Dee Rocks three-wide and she utilized a :26.4 final quarter to get the win by a length and a half over Voom Or Bang. Gate Speed and Brandon Bates also rallied well late to round out the trifecta. As the publics' third choice, De Rocks returned $10.80 to her backers at the betting windows. "I think the start last week helped tighten her up," Tetrick noted after the win. "They made some equipment changes that made her a little handier tonight. I thought it was best to take a trip and try to see who I could follow. I knew they would carry us a long way, she's a very talented filly and did the rest." Trained by Dossie Minor, the homebred daughter of Rockin Image-Incredible Katie is owned by Ronald Phillips and John Carver. Dee Rocks has now won 12 of 16 lifetime outings while sending her lifetime earnings over the $200,000 mark with the win. The win capped off a great week for Tetrick who won 13 races on the week, including the three other divisions of the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Finals earlier in the week. "I'm just very appreciative to be able to drive good horses for great people," Tetrick noted of the accomplishment. "Everything worked out for us this week and the horses really showed up." Along with the stakes action, two track records were re-established on Saturday as horses sizzled over the Hoosier Park oval. Cue Hall, driven by LeWayne Miller, turned a pocket trip into a 1:52 score in the Open Trot to re-establish the track record for older trotting horses. The previous mark of 1:52.1 was set by Crescent Fashion and Ricky Macomber Jr. in 2017. Trained by Rod Boyd, Cue Hall recorded his second win of the season and establish a new lifetime best. The six-year-old son of Andover Hall-Curli Cue is owned by Robert J. Key. Just a few races later, Carol's Z Tam and Michael Oosting used similar pocket sitting tactics to blow past their rivals and stop the timer in 1:49, a new track record for older pacing mares. The previous mark of 1:49.2 was established in 2017 by Au D Lox Bluegrass. It was the second consecutive Hoosier Park victory for Carol's Z Tam and a new lifetime best. Trained by Jamie Macomber, the four-year-old daughter of Always A Virgin-Electric Sparkle has now won three of nine seasonal outings and 12 of 42 lifetime. Owned by Z Tam Stables LLC, Carol's Z Tam has bankrolled $307,954 in lifetime purse earnings. Live racing will continue at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Tuesday, June 5 with a 12-race card.

ANDERSON, IN.-June 1, 2018-Sophomore pacing colts were the featured attraction at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in the opening round of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals on Friday, June 1. After tasting defeat for the first time eight starts in his elimination last week, Always A Prince and Trace Tetrick rebounded gamely to find the winner's circle in 1:49.2. The 1:49.2 clocking was a new lifetime best and equaled the fastest mile of the season over the Hoosier Park oval through 44 nights of racing. Leaving from the trailing post position ten, Always A Prince changed up his front-running tactics to settle along the rail in fifth. Jeopardy and Brandon Bates were the first to get a call through the opening panel in :26.4 while the rest of the field sorted out early positions. Shnitzledosomethin and Peter Wrenn, the slight post time favorite, were pointed to the front down the backside and grabbed command just before the second station in :54.3. Shnitzledosomethin was still calling the shots at the three-quarter clocking in 1:22.1 but Always A Prince was on the attack, first-over with Gerardo and Luke Plano in tow. Shnitzledosomethin looked strong on the front but Tetrick asked his mount for more and Always A Prince found another gear. Utilizing a :27.1 final quarter, Always A Prince edged past a game Shnitzledosomethin to get the win by a length. Gerardo rallied well to round out the trifecta at 57-1. Always A Prince returned $4.80 at the betting windows for the victory. "He was as sharp as I've ever seen him tonight," Tetrick said in the winner's circle. "I obviously wanted a helmet to follow but that's not the way the race worked out. He's a true professional. He acts like an aged horse; you can do anything you want with him. He loves his job and is an extremely talented colt." It was the type of performance that surely would have put a smile on recently departed trainer Bill Dailey's face. With the win, Always A Prince recorded his eighth seasonal victory from just nine starts. Unraced as a two-year-old, the gelded son of Always A Virgin-Glorious Princess is owned by Kimberly Dailey and Carl & Melanie Atley and has now amassed $78,500 in lifetime purse earnings. Earlier on the evening's 13-race card, Ricky Macomber Jr. steered Rocky's Z Tam to a 1:49.2 victory to record the fastest mile of the 2018 season at Hoosier Park. It was one of three winners on the program for trainer Jamie Macomber and driver Ricky Macomber Jr. who also found the winner's circle with Just N Ace in the $20,000 Indiana Sires Stakes consolation for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings and Sir Mammo in a conditioned pace.

ANDERSON, Ind.-May 25, 2018-The Hoosier state's three-year-old pacing colts were in the spotlight at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, May 25 to square off in the opening round of Indiana Sires Stakes action and as predicted, the sophomore colts opened their series in impressive fashion.
