I went four for eight last week, some of my favorite horses got beat, which is bound to happen every now and then. I actually won $.90 (based on $2 win bet each race). We are still in the minus earning column at -$36.30 going into this weekend and we will try once again to bring that number down more. We start off the weekend at the Meadowlands Saturday will a great final stakes program of the season headed by seven major events including the TVG Series Finals and then on Sunday it's the Progress Pace final at Dover Downs. It promises to be a great weekend of racing action! $456,150 Final GoldSmith Maid 2YO Filly Trot 2nd race Saturday, Meadowlands - This race could well wrap-up year-end honors in this division as Shake It Cerry has been super throughout the season for the Jimmy Takter Stable. She should be 1/9 and rightfully so having won her last four-starts and is 7 for 10 on the year with earnings of nearly $600,000. She is a trotting machine and has beaten everyone in this field from on and off the pace. $167,500 Nadia Lobell 3YO Filly Pace 3rd race Saturday, Meadowlands - With I Luv The Nitelife out for the season with a fractured knee this race becomes a two-horse match-up with Shebestingin taking on Charisma Hanover. Both are superb fillies in their own right. Charisma Hanover come in on a five-race win streak with 13 wins this year. But I am going with Shebestingin. She has 11 wins this year, won in Lexington at a mile in world record time of 1:47 and if need be can grind it out on the outside. Will be a classic match-up! $494,750 Valley Victory Final 2YO Colt Trot 4th race Saturday, Meadowlands - With Father Patrick turned out for the season this race should belong to Nuncio. This colt has great speed, first or second in all of his nine starts this year and does not like to be passed. Look for him to get to the front and never look back and has trotting master John Campbell in the sulky too! $500,000 TVG Series Final Open Trot 6th race Saturday, Meadowlands - You can just about make a case for any of the seven horses in this field being able to win. Wishing Stone returned to his winning ways last week in the snow, Mister Herbie was super impressive in his qualifying race, Market Share is total class but I am once again going with Arch Madness. Classy "old man" in the field still has plenty of trot, has beaten this competition before and as long as Trond gets him geared up on the outside by the three-quarters he can grind it out for an upset score. $534,500 Governor's Cup Final 2YO Colt Pace 8th race Saturday, Meadowlands - This will be a very competitive race and I am looking at somewhat of a newcomer grabbing the winner's share of the purse. JK Endofanera showed a :25.4 final quarter mile in a nose lost in a Meadowlands qualifying race, his second nose defeat. Prior to that he shows winning in 1:51.4, has gate speed to insure good position to strike from and has yet to finish worse than second in six lifetime starts. $394,950 Three Diamonds Final 2YO Filly Pace 9th race Saturday, Meadowlands - I think this is a two-horse race between JK Molly and Ali Blue. JK Molly prepped for this final with two sharp qualifying races at the Meadowlands and figures to try and lead all the way in here. But I am going with Ali Blue. She needs mainly to watch her manners and stay on stride but when she is right, which she has been in her last two starts she has the speed to beat JK Molly. $512,000 TVG Free For All Final Open Pace 10th race Saturday, Meadowlands - This is the race many of us have been hoping for all season long. Captaintreacherous, king of the three-year-olds, taking on Foiled Again, Pet Rock and some of the best older pacers in the sport. A lot is riding on this race as Pet Rock and Foiled Again can claim Older Pacer of the Year honors by winning. Foiled Again can even look at possible Pacer of the Year honors with a victory, but both of these game performers have to do one thing first, beat Captaintreacherous. Even with drawing the outside post eight, I think Captaintreacherous has been pointed and primed for this race and that he can beat his older rivals. I don't think he will ever see the lead until mid to late stretch, but if he gets any live cover he will be in position to grind a victory. And when he wins he can claim not only Pacer of the Year honors for the second straight year but also have a shot at Horse of the Year honors. $253,000 Moni Maker 3YO Filly Trot 11th race Saturday, Meadowlands - What can you say about perfection? Bee A Magician looks to close out her superb three-year-old season unbeaten as she goes for her 17th straight win. She has beaten everyone she has faced and done so impressively all season long. Another strong showing in her final race of the year should all but nail down Horse of the Year honors for her...unless the "Captain" can win his race, in which it will be a nail-biter decision that won't be announced until February 23. Either way Bee A Magician has giving us her best week in week out all season long and I can't wait for her to return next year. $284,160 Progress Pace Final 3YO Colts 10th race Sunday, Dover Downs - With Vegas Vacation turned out for the year, the elimination race last week was Sunshine Beach's to win or lose and he lost! Twilight Bonfire turned the tables on Sunshine Beach with an upset win at odds of 20-1. I don't see that happening again today. Sunshine Beach may have it rough at first, having to start from the outside in post eight, but I think that John Campbell will be on the lookout and will rate his colt the best he can and still have something left for the final quarter mile.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Sometimes long range plans do pan out. Myron Bell starting thinking in March and April about the inaugural $512,000 TVG Free-For-All Pacing Final on Saturday night at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment for the sensational 3-year-old colt Captaintreacherous. "There were four races we wanted to participate in this year: the North American Cup, The Meadowlands Pace, the Breeders Crown and the TVG Final," said Bell, manager of Captaintreacherous Racing. The Captain sailed through the first three missions with victories. Now comes the biggest challenge, in what could be the race of the year. By virtue of the Breeders Crown win, Captaintreacherous was invited to TVG Final where he faces a stellar lineup of nine older pacers, including Foiled Again and Pet Rock. The leading 3-year-olds in harness racing rarely step out of their division to tackle the older horses. In a very sporting gesture, Captaintreacherous team of Bell, trainer Tony Alagna and driver Tim Tetrick have embraced the challenge. "It's an honor and privilege to race a colt against the aged horses," Bell said. "Let the chips fall where they may." And the Captain will have to overcome an outside post, No. 8. "Naturally, we would like to draw better," Bell said. "That's the card dealt us. We'll make the best of it. It's now Timmy Tetrick's job. He's pretty high on the horse, as we all are. I'm sure he'll give a good account. We have a lot of confidence in our animal." The TVG Series is part of Meadowlands chairman Jeff Gural's goal of enhancing opportunities for older horses. The series, split into pacing and trotting divisions, offered preliminary legs and major stakes bound together by a season-long point system. The top qualifiers advanced to the $500,000 guaranteed finals for both gaits. In what turned out to be a brilliant stroke, the series awarded invitations to the winners of the 3-year-old Breeders Crowns. That provision set the stage for this dramatic showdown. While Captaintreacherous is the baby in the field, the indomitable Foiled Again is the graybeard at 9. Harness racing's all-time money earner at $5.7 million looks as good as ever. "He couldn't be better," trainer Ron Burke said. "He's in career form. It's an awesome opportunity for him. It's going to be one of the better races of the year." Winner of the Breeders Crown for aged pacers last month, Foiled Again captured the final TVG leg last Saturday, opening night of the new Meadowlands grandstand. It was a typical Foiled Again effort: a game first-over grind under less than ideal conditions. "That's his kind of race," Burke said. "We need to turn it not into a test of pure speed but a test of will, of who wants it the most. I don't care who he is racing against. He will out try them." It was also an encouraging score at a track where Foiled Again has not excelled. He is only 2 for 33 at The Meadowlands. Like Old Man River, Foiled Again keeps rolling along. He is 10 for 28 this year, and no longer amazes Burke with his ability to defy the sands of time. "At one time I was surprised, but not now," Burke said. "We've almost come to expect it. He's such an unbelievable horse. He never shows us a reason to stop believing. Every time you ask him to do more, he goes out and does more." Foiled Again, from post 4 with Yannick Gingras at the lines, is one of three Burke trainees in the final. He also sends out Bettor's Edge and Sweet Lou, fourth to Foiled Again last week. Burke feels Sweet Lou, with Matt Kakaley in the sulky, could be the sleeper in the field. "He's coming back into form," Burke said. "I love Matt on him. He was sneaky good in the Breeders Crown final. I think he's the one horse I've got that's rounding back into shape. He drew a great spot. He fits well with those horses. He'll never get embarrassed. I actually like his chances too." While most of the attention focuses on a Captaintreacherous vs. Foiled Again showdown, Pet Rock could easily upset this applecart. "To win the race, you first have to beat Pet Rock," Burke said. "Everyone is talking Foiled vs. Captain. Believe me, the first horse they have to beat is Pet Rock. That horse doesn't lay down for anybody." Dynamic Youth, Modern Legend, Golden Receiver, Warrawee Needy and Bolt The Duer complete the field. Market Share, the 2012 Hambletonian winner, has the outside post in the seven-horse final of $500,000 TVG Trot. Like Foiled Again, Market Share was a Breeders' Crown winner at Pocono Downs, one of his five victories from 13 starts this season. Just like the TVG Pace, the Trot also features a stellar 9-year-old in Arch Madness with over $4 million in the bank. Guccio, Uncle Peter, Wishing Stone, My MVP and Mister Herbie round out the lineup. The 13-race card that starts at 7:15 p.m. serves up eight stakes races, including an appearance by Hambletonian Oaks winner Bee A Magician, 16 for 16 on the season and a top contender for Horse of the Year honors, in the $253,000 Moni Maker Stakes for 3-year-old trotting fillies. by Rachel Ryan for the Meadowlands  

Monday evening’s qualifiers served as a dress rehearsal for Saturday night’s grand opening of Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment’s brand new grandstand. Meadowlands employees and their families were invited to Pink, the terraced dining room in the new building, for a complimentary tasting of the new menu and give the servers a test run of the facility.   The races began at 6:00pm with the accomplished older trotter Mister Herbie cruising around the oval in 1:53- for driver Tim Tetrick. After a 57- half, “Herbie” turned on the jets and won by many lengths. Trainer Jeff Gillis shares ownership of the $1.7 million winning son of Here Comes Herbie with Mac Nichol and Gerald Stay.   So Surreal (Somebeachsomewhere) won easily in 1:53.4 (final half in 55-) for trainer/driver Ray Schnittker prepping for next week’s Governors Cup eliminations. Gewertz, Kurnit & Arnold are partners with Ray on the colt.   Don’t Blame Her, long a favorite of the Bongiorno family, sharpened up with an eye catching 1:54.2/27.1 effort in the third. Barbara and Bobby own the mare, driven by their son Joe. Brad Irvine trains.   Another preview night of qualifiers comes along this Thursday at 6:00pm. Horsemen have been invited to attend on that occasion to sample the fare in Pink. Then the house opens for real on Saturday with a stakes laden card of racing.

Market Share wore down the leading Maven to win the $200,000 American National Aged Trot in a new track record time of 1:52.1 with Tim Tetrick in the sulky. Linda Toscano trains the 4-year-old Revenue S horse, who last won his $600,000 Breeders Crown test at Pocono Downs. It was the 20th career victory for Market Share and gave Tetrick two American National crowns on the evening’s program. Uncle Peter (David Miller) had taken the lead to the :28 first quarter before yielding to the speedy Mr Herbie (Brian Sears). Maven (Yannick Gingras) then came flying first up, taking control of the race at the :56.3 half. She continued to lead through the final turn a sMarket Share and Tetrick drew even with her. These two continued to battled through the stretch and Market Share then drew off in the final eighth of the mile to win by a length over the gutsy Maven. Mister Herbie finished third. “He’s a nice little horse and he’s agreat money maker so you can’t beat that,” Tetrick said. “I took a chance coming out but it worked out. My horse is real handy, and Maven is a great filly and she’s not easy to get by, but myhorse is just awesome. I think he’s peaking at the right time.” Market Share added the winner’s shareof $96,000 to his already hefty bankroll of $2,763,011. Video attached by Kimberly Rinker for Balmoral Park

With most of the favorites winning in this past weekend's Breeders Crown spectacular, Bee A Magician still holds a two point lead over Captaintreacherous in the Top Ten Poll.

Market Share and driver Tim Tetrick took advantage of an early break by Wishing Stone and worked out a perfect trip behind pacesetter and betting favorite, Intimidate (Ron Pierce) then outkicked Mister Herbie (Jody Jamieson) to win the $600,000 Breeders Crown by a long nose. The 2012 Hambletonian winner and Three-Year-Old Trotter of the Year, Market Share got off to a winning start in 2013 but as of late had been unable to win in his last seven starts but picked a perfect time to come back to winning form. Intimidate went right out to the early lead with Market Share sitting on his back through the opening panel in :26.4. They raced that way to the half mile marker in :54.3 as Arch Madness and trainer/driver Trond Smedshammer started moving first-over. Then in the backstretch, Jamieson came first-over with Mister Herbie and started to collar Intimidate at the three-quarters in 1:22.1. As the field started down the stretch, Intimidate was all done, Mister Herbie had the lead but Market Share started up the inside and looked to pass Mister Herbie by but Mister Herbie came back again but was too late at the wire in 1:51. Arch Madness was third. “It changed things when he (Wishing Stone) went off stride,” Tetrick said. “It surprised me so I figured I better get behind him (Intimidate). If Wishing Stone don’t run then he is in that spot. It worked out. On the last turn he came on and was great.” It was the fourth win this year for Market Share. The four-year-old stallion by Revenue is trained by Linda Toscano and is co-owned by Richard Gutnick, TLP Stables and Bill Augustine. He paid $6.00 to win. “He (Market Share) has had his share of bad posts this year,” said Linda Tocano. “Tonight he got a good trip from the rail. It was not where we wanted to start from tonight but it worked out fine. Video attached By Steve Wolf for

WILKES-BARRE PA  -- The fields for the two Breeders Crown events that did not require eliminations this weekend, the three-year-old filly pace and the open horse trot, are here listed in post position order: $500,000 Three-Year-Old Filly Pace: Parlee Beach Mattie Terror Girl Carol’s Dream  Authorize Shebestingin Aunt Caroline I Luv The Nitelife Somwherovrarainbow Love Canal $500,000 Older Horse Pace: Market Share Wishing Stone My MVP Guccio Intimidate Mister Herbie Arch Madness Uncle Peter Sevruga Intimidate, who has not raced since September 16 and was scratched September 30, will race Monday at Mohawk Raceway in the $34,000 Preferred trot, starting from post three in a field of seven. The four-year-old took his sophomore Breeders Crown final last year. By Jerry Connors for

Bee A Magician, Captaintreacherous and I Luv The Nitelife, who have combined to win 35 of 37 races and $3.67 million this year, lead the list of 156 horses entered Tuesday for the 12 Breeders Crown events at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Eliminations are unnecessary for the 3-year-old filly pacers and Open Trot, which both received nine entries. Eliminations for 2-year-old male and female trotters plus 2-year-old female pacers are Friday at Pocono Downs, with the remaining elims Saturday. Post time is 6:30 p.m. both nights. All 12 finals - with purses totaling $5.6 million - will be Saturday, Oct. 19, at Pocono Downs. Post time is 5 p.m. for the first race. Bee A Magician, a 3-year-old filly trotter, is 13-for-13 this year for trainer Richard "Nifty" Norman and owners Melvin Hartman, Herb Liverman and David McDuffee. She enters the Breeders Crown off a win in the Ontario Sire Stakes championship Sept. 28 at Mohawk, which pushed her seasonal earnings to $1.09 million. Other victories this season include the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks and $356,981 Elegantimage Stakes. A daughter of the stallion Kadabra out of the mare Beehive, Bee A Magician is the fastest 3-year-old trotter this season, with a clocking of 1:51 that came in winning the $265,500 Delvin Miller Memorial on July 13 at the Meadowlands. The time is the fastest ever for a 3-year-old filly trotter. Bee A Magician has won 23 of 26 lifetime starts and earned $1.86 million - the most ever for a filly trotter at ages 2 and 3 combined. She finished third in last season's Breeders Crown for 2-year-old filly trotters, which was won by To Dream On. Bee A Magician is the second of two eliminations for the 3-year-old filly trotters, starting from post three. To Dream On, who on Sunday won the $205,100 Kentucky Filly Futurity final, is in the second of the two eliminations. To Dream On is one of 12 previous Breeders Crown champions entered in this year's event. Three-year-old colt pacer Captaintreacherous is a nose from perfect this year, with 10 wins in 11 starts and $1.61 million. He is trained by Tony Alagna for the Captaintreacherous Racing ownership group. He heads to the Breeders Crown following his victory Saturday in a $215,500 division of the Tattersalls Pace at The Red Mile. Other wins this year for the son of Somebeachsomewhere-Worldly Treasure include the $980,000 North America Cup, the $635,750 Meadowlands Pace, the $500,000 Max C. Hempt Memorial and the $360,211 Cane Pace. His only loss came by a nose to Sunshine Beach in the $500,000 Battle of the Brandywine in a world-record 1:47.4 mile. Captaintreacherous has won 18 of 21 career races and earned $2.53 million. He finished third in last season's Breeders Crown for 2-year-old male pacers. He is in the second of two eliminations for the 3-year-old male pacers and will leave from post four. I Luv The Nitelife, a 3-year-old filly pacer, has won 12 of 13 races this year and earned $968,337 for trainer Chris Ryder and owners Richard and Joanne Young. A daughter of Rocknroll Hanover-Lisjune, she most recently won the $154,650 Jugette final at the Delaware County Fair on Sept. 18 for her 11th consecutive victory. Other triumphs include the $384,044 Fan Hanover Stakes, the $350,000 Valley Forge and the $300,000 James M. Lynch Memorial. For her career, she has won 16 of 23 starts and $1.65 million. She finished second in last season's Breeders Crown for 2-year-old filly pacers, which was won by Somwherovrarainbow. Eliminations are unnecessary for the 3-year-old filly pacers, so the final was drawn Tuesday. I Luv The Nitelife will start from post seven; Somwherovrarainbow leaves from post eight. Shebestingin, who on Sunday paced the fastest mile in history by a female pacer when she won a division of the Glen Garnsey Memorial in 1:47, drew post five. The Open Trot, Mare Trot and Mare Pace each have three past Breeders Crown winners. Arch Madness, who makes his record-tying sixth Breeders Crown appearance, Intimidate and Uncle Peter all are previous trophy winners competing in this year's Open Trot. Arch Madness became the ninth trotter in history to surpass $4 million in career earnings when he won the Allerage Farms Open Trot on Sunday at The Red Mile. In the Mare Trot, Cedar Dove, Check Me Out and Maven have won titles, as have Mare Pace contenders Anndrovette, Economy Terror and Monkey On My Wheel. Anndrovette is seeking her third consecutive Breeders Crown, a feat never accomplished in any of the open divisions. Sweet Lou, in the Open Pace, completes the list of previous Breeders Crown champions. The Open Pace also includes Foiled Again, who is the richest pacer in harness racing history, with $5.38 million.
