After The Lovin proved best in the Monticello Raceway harness racing conditioned pace headliner as she dispatched the leader and rolled on to victory on Monday.   Michael Merton declined to contest the early lead from post six with the mare and opted for the sixth spot on the pylons going into the turn. He pulled After The Lovin to the outside shortly after and they made headway uncovered through the second quarter, which was completed in :58.1.   She accelerated in the third panel and quickly surpassed the leading Sweet Ginger (Bruce Aldrich Jr.) and assumed command just before three-quarters in 1:27. Special Graduate (Jim Taggart Jr.) attempted a rally from the pocket but found the leader was too good. After The Lovin paced home victorious in 1:56. Special Graduate was two and a quarter lengths short, and Sweet Ginger finished well back in third.   AFTER THE LOVIN REPLAY     After The Lovin, a five-year-old Carnivore mare, now holds a record of 16-for-51 and just less than $75,000 in career earnings.

Columbus, OH — Hall of Fame harness racing trainer Ron Gurfein, 80, died May 5, 2021. The following message was posted on Mr. Gurfein’s Facebook page this afternoon by his children, Lauren and Blake. “It is with profound sadness that we share that our dad, Ronnie Gurfein (a.k.a. “the Guru”), passed away earlier today. His was a long life filled with many joys, successes, and love. His wit was second to none and he had us laughing till his final moments. “Per his wishes, there will be a small family-only ceremony. We know he will be missed by many, so please stay tuned for information about a future celebration of his life and career. “In lieu of flowers or cards, we would appreciate donations in his name to Caring Across Generations — an organization dedicated to changing the way we care for older adults: https://go.caringacross.org/a/give.” Mr. Gurfein was one of the top conditioners of trotters and a 2006 inductee into the Hall of Fame in Goshen, N.Y. He opened up his stable in 1965, moved to Monticello Raceway in 1967 and spent the better part of the next two decades at the Mighty M. He toiled in relative obscurity through that time even though he won the 1982 Adios Stakes with Higher Power and also conditioned the likes of Hardesty ($367,426) and the world champion mare Franconia ($527,151). Mr. Gurfein moved to The Meadowlands in 1987 and five years later came up with an imposing trio of Imperfection, Baltic Striker, and Lady Starlet. He hit the pinnacle of the sport later that decade with horses such as Victory Dream and Beat The Wheel. The best horse of his career was the outstanding trotting filly Continentalvictory, who captured the Yonkers Trot and Hambletonian in 1996 on her way to earning Horse of the Year honors. Other top horses for Mr. Gurfein included 1999 Dan Patch Award divisional champion Self Possessed and 2003 Trotter of the Year Cantab Hall. Mr. Gurfein won the 1999 Glen Garnsey Trainer of the Year Award from the United States Harness Writers’ Association. From the USTA

Chip Chip Conway slogged first-over through the mud to emerge victorious in the Monticello Raceway harness racing Open trot on Wednesday.   He dropped in fourth heading for the first turn and was three lengths behind cover going past the quarter in :29.1. Jim Taggart Jr. tipped the gelding to the outside as the six-horse field rounded into the stretch to complete lap one, and the pair advanced uncovered as they completed the second panel in :59.4.   Kabang (Michael Merton) remained steadfast on the lead, holding Chip Chip Conway to his shoulder before exploding off stride going past three-quarters in 1:29.3.

Camwood scored a front-end harness racing victory in the Monticello Raceway Open Pace on Tuesday, winning the class for the second consecutive week.   He was widest of the three vying for the early lead due to his four-hole draw, but Bruce Aldrich Jr. encouraged him on through the first turn and secured the front prior to the quarter in :29. Camwood went to the half in :58.4 and began to edge away from the two and three-wide challengers going past three-quarters in 1:27.4.   Aldrich needed to work little in the stretch to get Camwood home a length and a quarter clear of Certified Ideal (Justin Huckabone) for a 1:56.4 score. Certified Ideal kept his second-place finish after a length inquiry, and Grand Priority (Brandon Parker) recovered from a shuffle for show.   CAMWOOD REPLAY     That was Camwood's 23rd victory in 126 career appearances.

The New Americana extended her streak of top three finishes to 11 straight with a front-end harness racing victory in the Monticello Raceway conditioned feature on Monday.   Bruce Aldrich Jr. marched the six-year-old mare to the top from post three going into the first turn, which was helped by the break of rail horse The Boss' Wife (Shane Taggart). The New Americana paced fractions of :29, :58.3, and 1:27.4 without being headed, but Glamorgal (Brandon Parker) threatened in the passing lane and Moonlightandroses (Cory Stratton) provided pressure on the outside coming down the lane.   The New Americana turned them all away though and paced home a neck the best in 1:57. Michael Merton threaded Too Much Sun through traffic late, and they took place. Glamorgal was third of seven. The winner paid $3.50.   THE NEW AMERICANA REPLAY     The New Americana made an immediate impact for James Teri of West Babylon, who claimed the six-year-old Yankee Skyscraper mare on Apr. 26 and assigned her to trainer Christopher Petrelli.
