Melady's Monet is getting up in age but remains young at heart. The 12-year-old male trotter has three wins and a second in four starts this season and will look for career victory No. 71 when he visits The Meadowlands for Saturday's $22,500 conditioned trot. "He's doing really good," trainer Hermann Heitmann said. "Nothing has changed with him (over the years). He is still acting like a young horse, actually. He likes to play around in the paddocks, he enjoys his lunch, he doesn't look like he wants to slow down yet. "He just likes to race." Melady's Monet is a son of Revenue S out of Keystone Melady. He was bred by Ester Balenzano and her husband Luca, who passed away last year. Ester remains the horse's owner under the Melady Enterprises banner. For his career, Melady's Monet has won 70 of 224 races and $1.73 million. He has earned more than $125,000 in each of the past eight years. He won the 2016 Vincennes Invitational at The Meadowlands and later that season was second to Bee A Magician in the $250,000 Yonkers Invitational. In 2015, he won The Meadows Maturity and had third-place finishes in the Cutler Memorial and Crawford Farms Open Trot. In recent years, he has remained a consistent performer in top-level trots at various East Coast racetracks, particularly Yonkers. The gelding was sidelined for five months in 2018 because of colic surgery but has earned a paycheck in 49 of 54 starts since his return. "He's like the horse of a lifetime," Heitmann said. "There are not too many around like him." On Saturday, Melady's Monet heads to The Meadowlands to race for the first time since December 2019. He will start from post five with driver Scott Zeron and is 9-2 on the morning line. Kenziesky Hanover is the 5-2 favorite. "I'm sure he will put in a good effort," Heitmann said. What makes Melady's Monet successful in fending off rivals as well as Father Time? "His attitude," Heitmann said. "He knows when we're going to the races and he likes the competition. He tries unbelievably hard, always. He never gives up. "Attitude is everything with him. He just wants to do it. You can't teach that to any horse, they either have it or they don't. He wants to do it." Racing begins at 6 p.m. (EST) at The Meadowlands. The Big M and TrackMaster have teamed to regularly provide free past performances for each race card.

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, February 22, 2020--The next time Melady's Monet (George Brennan, $3.90) throws in a bad race would probably be the first time Melady's Monet throws in a bad race. It was harness racing career win No 63 (in start No. 207) for 'Melady' Saturday night (Feb. 22nd), taking down Yonkers Raceway's $35,000 Preferred Handicap Trot. Melady's Monet--the odds-on favorite from assigned post position No. 7--left around both Lean Hanover (Jim Marohn Jr.) and Smalltownthrowdown (Dan Dube). Once on the point, Melady's Monet finished what he started (:27.2, :57.3, 1:26, season's-best 1:54.3). Pappy Go Go (Jason Bartlett) tried it first-up from last among those trotting, but tired. Meanwhile, Melady's Monet owned a pair of lengths in and out of the final turn, then whipped Lean Hanover by a length. Third went to Mostinterestingman (Austin Siegelman), with Smalltownthrowdown and Money Maven (Brent Holland) rounding out the payees.   For Melady's Monet, an 11-year-old homebred Revenue S gelding owned by Melady Enterprises and trained by Hermann Heitmann, it was his second win in seven seasonal starts (career earnings in excess of $1.63 million). The exacta paid $17.80, with the triple returning $101.50. Saturday night's $40,000 Open Handicap Pace saw outsider Tookadiveoffdipper (Jordan Stratton, $37.80) beat both the gate and his half-dozen rivals. From post No. 6, Tookadiveoffdipper left to immediate command, well before a :27.1 opening quarter-mile. Season-debuting Mac's Jackpot (Holland), as the 19-10 second choice, was able to get into a chasmic pocket. It was an antsy two-hole that 'Mac' tried to vacate between a :56.2 intermission and 1:24 three-quarters. However, Tookadiveoffdipper stood his ground, taking a length-and-a-three-quarter lead into the lane. He held Mac's Jackpot at bay, the final margin a half-length in a '20-best 1:52.2. San Domino A (Dube), the 17-10 choice was a belated third, with Jack's Legend N (Bartlett) and Rockapelo (Brennan) settling for the smaller envelopes.   For sixth choice Tookadiveoffdipper, a 6-year-old Always a Virgin gelding co-owned by Jane &Mark Cross and trained by Virgil Morgan Jr., it was his third win in six '20 tries. The exacta paid $92, the triple returned $433 and the superfecta paid $850. Saturday props as well to 12-year-old, $1.4 million number Great Vintage (Holland $8.30), who earned his 53rd career win in the $22,000, fourth-race pace (1:53.1). by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (June 16, 2017) - One is closing in on $3.8 million in lifetime earnings. The other has a hump. But both Market Share, the 2012 Hambletonian champion, and Guyanastan Gal, the 2017 Cameltonian champ, shared the harness racing spotlight on Friday night at the Meadowlands. In the featured $15,000 conditioned trot, Market Share was last in the compact field of six through the opening half mile. Roundtown Rocker fronted the field through the half mile in :56.3 and three-quarters in 1:25.4. As the field turned for home, Hall of Famer John Campbell, who was driving Market Share for the first time in his 94-start career, tipped the son of Revenue off cover and the 32-time winner exploded with a :27.2 last quarter to win by a length as the 2-5 favorite in 1:53.3. Roundtown Rocker held second while Jewels In Hock, one of two mares in the field, held the show spot. Meanwhile, Friday night also marked the annual Camel and Ostrich races. In the "Cameltonian," Guyanastan Gal dominated her three humped rivals to win by open lengths. Earlier in the evening, Lone Petunia rallied from a slow start to sweep the field and win a three-bird photo in the 6th Annual Ostrich Derby, despite her driver dropping his broom in deep stretch. A large and enthusiastic crowd cheered on all of their favorite two and four-legged animals despite rain showers earlier in the day. Total handle on the 10-race card was $1,744,602. Racing resumes Saturday night. Post time is 7:15 p.m. For more information, visit Justin Horowitz

There's an old adage that states 'you can't keep a good man down.' but in recent amateur harness racing history it could more accurately read "you can't keep a good woman down". That maxim can easily be equated to Hannah Miller, the hottest driver in the amateur ranks today. In the NAADA Trot at Yonkers Raceway tonight (June 16) the 25 year old miss, affectionately known as 'Hurricane Hannah', scored yet another victory when she guided Rev It Now to a gate to wire triumph over seven others in a 1:59.3 clocking. For the two-time National Amateur Driver of the Year it marked her 10th driving victory this season and her 83rd in just 289 career starts and the first-ever race contested over the newly refurbished Westchester County (NY) double oval Taking advantage of starting from the pylon position Miller sent her trotter to the lead as Alan Schwartz and Ladys Big Stormont found a position in behind Rev It Now as they rounded the first turn. They then raced one-two by the half way point where Joe Pennacchio was the first to move off the pylons with Zorgwijk Impact. As the field headed up the backside Pennacchio's trotter circled Ladys Big Stormont and then ranged alongside Rev it Now as the leaders trotted by the third stanza in 1:30.1. Unfortunately for Pennacchio, Ms Miller's charge still had plenty in the tank as they headed for home. In the stretch Zorgwijk Impact faded and Ladys Big Stormont was fresh and Schwartz rallied his charge as they headed for paydirt. But Ladys Big Stormont ran out of racetrack and finished a head behind Rev It Now in second place Although tiring, Zorgwijk Impact held on for the show dough. Reached via email after the race trainer Nick Surick responded: "Hannah said Rev was very sharp tonight and got off the gate good and had no intentions on letting anyone go. "She won the first race with the new finish line and she thinks it will make racing more exciting for the Yonkers Raceway fans." Surick then added:"We just rushed over to the Meadowlands where Hannah is driving the favorite in 5th race there tonight. Hopefully she can make it a driving double on both sides of the Hudson River." Ms Miller also owns the veteran 11 year old altered son of Revenue S who didn't race last year However, in his illustrious career Rev It Now has now won 37 races and purses of nearly 280,000. He's trained by Nick Surick by John Manzi for NAADA

The eight year-old daughter of Revenue S won an early tussle with Serendipitious, handled by Wally Hennessey, and Celebrity Artemis, with Marcello Spano handling her lines, and went on to score a handy win in 1:55.4 off of panels of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:26.3.

The 4 to 5 favorite, Diamond Dagger, made a miscue leaving and was distanced the entire mile. In a post-race interview, driver Rick Plano, who also owns and trains She's All In, remarked, "With the five post winning about a quarter of the races here, I decided to put her in gear from the get-go as she likes to be in the thick of things early. "We made the lead fairly easily and, when we got to the half kinda cheap (:57.1), I was pretty confident that she could carry her speed all the way home. "You know, I bred this mare and, as I said last week after her win, she's been very good to me. "She gives me everything she's got on the racetrack and I wish I had a hundred more like her!" She's All In now sports a 3-2-1 scorecard in 13 starts this year, good for $20,635. Lifetime, the gallant mare has 31 wins in a career spanning 209 starts with $314,293 on her card.

Pompano Beach, FL...March 21, 2017...She's All In, with breeder-owner-trainer in the bike, took top harness racing honors in Pompano Park's $8,500 Open Trot for Mares on Tuesday night, covering her one mile journey in 1:54.3. The gutsy eight year-old daughter of Revenue S out-dueled Modern Mercury, handled by Peter Wrenn, to score by 1¼ lengths. M T Ur Pockets, driven by Mike Simons and at the back of the pack around the final bend, closed with ferocity to finish third, two lengths away, Serendipity finished fourth after taking command at the opening quarter while Celebrity Artemis picked up the nickel in the classy octet of ladies. At the outset, She's All In (post 3), Bad Angel (post 5) and Serendipitious (post 6) all had their site on the top spot with Bad Angel sprinting to the front around the first turn before yielding to Serendipitious at the :27.1 opening panel. She's All In continued a cozy third at this point as Celebrity Artemis was next with Modern Mercury on the move past the half in :56. On the backside, Serendipitious continued to show the way as Modern Mercury took up the chase to reach second, Bad Angel content to sit tight in third with She's All In wending her way out and sprinting widest of all turning for home. At mid-stretch, Modern Mercury stuck her head in front but She's All was in overdrive and sprinted on by in the final 16th for the victory--her second of the season in 12 starts, sending her seasonal bounty to $16,385. After the race, driver Plano said, Having bred this mare and raised her, she's very special to me and very good to me over the years.

The win was number 30 in a career stretching 208 starts, good for $310,043. Off as the 6th choice in the field at 16 to 1, She's All rewarded her faithful with a $34.00 win mutuel--the largest win payoff in her career, her previous highest win payoff being $28.60 at Hoosier Park on August 28, 2015.

He is the ultimate professional harness racing reinsman and prolific Victorian winner Chris Alford showed just why when he won the Group One $54,000 Australian Pacing Gold Trotters Cup at Tabcorp Park @Club Menangle tonight. Alford quickly found the front with the Nicole Molander-trained Dead Cat Bounce and defied all efforts to run him down in the straight, scoring a 2.6m win over Glenferrie Burn and Uncas, rating an impressive 1:54.1 for the flying mile. As the field swung for home there looked to be challenges coming from near and far but Alford and Dead Cat Bounce held them all at bay to give Victoria another Group One for the night. Just 45 minutes earlier Alford scored one of the biggest wins of his stellar career, taking out the Miracle Mile with Lennytheshark, but rather than rest on his laurels he was back in the bike and drove another fabulous race to add to one of his best nights at Menangle. Not a bad effort when you consider Alford has driven thousands of winners in a stellar career that win earmark him as one of the greats of this sport. The unusually-named Dead Cat Bounce has now won three in succession and gave the former NSW trainer Molander her first Group One trotting success since she lost ace trotter Keystone Del from her stable. Dead Cat Bounce is by the Swedish stallion Revenue from the Straphanger mare Wee Annie. It was her 13th lifetime victory.        

WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 14, 2017 -- Unefoisdansmavie made it two straight at The Meadows when she converted a gritty uncovered move to victory in Tuesday's $13,800 featured trot for harness racing fillies and mares. Unefoisdansmavie was sixth by 7-1/2 lengths when Eric Goodell sent her first over after the leader, Princess Pablano. It took until mid-stretch, but the 10-year-old daughter of Revenue S-Peace To The World finally put away Princess Pablano and prevailed in 1:56.2. Homepage rallied for second, a neck back, while Whata Donato shot the Lightning Lane for show.

WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 7, 2017 -- Unefoisdansmavie threw down a 27.3 third quarter in the slop, fast enough to discourage most of the field and carry her to a harness racing victory in Tuesday's $15,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot at The Meadows. After Eric Goodell gave her a comfortable 1:00.1 first half, Unefoisdansmavie was well positioned for that explosive third panel. Only Princess Pablano could stay with her, but that one's first-over bid fell a length short, with Whata Donato fourth-placed-third. The winning time was 1:56.4. Ron Burke trains Unefoisdansmavie, a 10-year-old daughter of Revenue S-Peace To The World who now boasts $666,207 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt III.

Pompano Beach, FL...January 30, 2017...My Revenuer, again superbly handled by harness racing driver Brad Kramer, got back on track to his winning ways at Pompano Park on Monday night, scoring a handy win in the popular "Over-The-Hill Gang" Trot. The ultra-game nine year-old gelded son of Revenue S, used a backstretch blitz from fourth and swept into the lead a eight-of-a-mile later and then went on to score a 3¼ length decision over the late charging Ramzan (Mike Simons), who was eventually placed back to fifth, the result of a long miscue in the final stages. Bad Angel (Tom Jackson), third under the line, was moved up a notch to the place spot, while She's All In (Rick Plano) also gained a spot to officially wind up third. Adenium also was place up a spot to fourth while Ramzan had to settle for fifth money in the field of six. At the outset, Bad Angel was on the engine from her outside six post to take command early and stop the timer at the quarter in :28. That mare continued to lead last a rated half in :57.2 as My Revenuer tilted out from fourth and blitzed forward, taking command with authority and taking the field by the third station in 1:25.3--his third quarter clocked in :27.3. In the lane, Kramer was just a passenger as My Revenuer cruised home an ever-so-easy winner, stopping the clock in 1:55.3. After the event, Kramer related, "ya know, this horse has been on a terror lately, winning four of his last five. And the one he lost, he was out a long way on that very windy night and just did miss. "Tonight, we got away in good order and, on the backside, I gave him one 'chirp' and off he went. "This Over-The-Hill Gang class is a very tough group of trotters. They may be a little past their prime, but they can still put on a show. "Like I said last week, the only thing I'd like to change on this horse is the ownership because I would really love to own one like this. "Tom (trainer Petri) has him sharp as a tack and he's stayed that way for a good, long time. I love driving him!" In winning for the third time in four starts this year, My Revenuer now has $11,375 on his 2017 card and $241,934 lifetime. As the 3 to 5 tote-board favorite, My Revenuer paid $3.20 to his multitude of backers. Racing continues at Pompano Park on Tuesday night with Tater Twister looking to score a repeat victory in the $12,000 Open Handicap Trot. Mike Simons is expected back in the bike behind the 9 to 5 morning line favorite. Ruddy Rusty, Gold Savage, Massive Lightning and Diamond Dagger complete the talented trotting field. Post time is set for 7:20 p.m. by John Berry for Pompano Park      

Pompano Beach, FL...January 16, 2017...The nine year-old Revenue S gelding My Revenuer proved he's not so "Over-The-Hill" as he captured his fourth straight win in Pompano Park's "Over-The-Hill Gang" trot for harness racing eight year-olds and up. Driven by Brad Kramer for owner-trainer Tom Petri, My Revenuer wired together three identical panels of :28.4 to kick things off before a closing panel of :29 sealed the deal as he crossed the line in 1:55.2, pinning a 4¼ length defeat on the late charging 13 year-old gelding Rush N Supreme, handled by Mitchell "Sky" Walker. Ramzan, with Andy Santeramo controlling the lines, was third after a brief first up bid on the backside while PC's Wildcard, prominent through the mile, wound up fourth and last in the quartet. After the race, the soft-spoken Kramer said, "talk about a gamer, this one is all gamer. The first time I drove him this meet he had the nine post and made a break leaving but he recovered to get a check, so he showed me something that night. "Since then, he's been very sharp winning four of his last five--now five of this last six after tonight. "Ya know, he can really cover some ground from off the pace but, last week, I wanted to get him in the game early from an outside post and he proved to me that he can race any way. "Tonight, in the short field, and since Tom (trainer Petri) has him so sharp, I thought I'd get him to the top and he was solid all the way, never let up a step until it was all over!" "The only thing I would like to change on him is the owner...because I'd like to own him. He's a great old bird." My Revenuer won for the 31st time during his career spanning 180 starts pushing his lifetime bounty to $237,059. Off officially at 1 to 10, My Revenuer paid $2.20 to win. The win for Kramer, incidentally, pushed his lifetime total to 7,983--only 17 away from the coveted 8,000 milestone. Racing continues on Tuesday night with Tater Twister seeking his fourth consecutive win in the $12,000 Open Handicap Trot. Despite being assigned the outside seven post, Tater Twister has been installed as the 5 to 2 morning line favorite and will have the driving services of Mike Simons, handling the lines for trainer Mike Murphy. Pompano Park will also offer a $10,000 guaranteed pool on the Pick-4, which carries a minimal takeout of 12%. Post time is set for 7:20 p.m. by John Berry for Pompano Park

Pompano Beach, FL...November 30, 2016...She's All In, driven by Rick Plano, redeemed herself from self-destructing in her last start by taking top harness racing honors in Pompano Park's Open Trot for Mares on Tuesday night (November 29).   The seven year-old daughter of Revenue S, owned and trained by Plano, himself, zipped off the wings of the Hummer Starting Gate to secure the top spot early on before yielding to Serendipitious (Wally Hennessey) and then out-sprinted that one to the wire to score in 1:54.3, the margin 2 1/4 lengths on the wire off of panels of :27.3, :57 and 1:25.3.   Diamond Dagger (Jason Dillander) went a brave mile outside the last lap and finished third, just a neck back of Serendipitious. The Meadows invader Pinky The Intern went an "even-steven" mile in her debut to finish fourth while Bad Angel, beginning her journey from the outside nine post, rallied for fifth.   After the race, Plano said, "She's a rugged mare, alright, but, sometimes, mares can be a little rambunctious ata times and, last week, I guess she was just in a bad frame of mind.   "That was a shame, too, because we had the five post last week, too.   "This week, she was all business. She was a 'good girl' this week."   In winning for the fourth time this semester, the iron mare now shows a 4-11-8 scorecard in a busy 42 starts, good for bounty of $72,514. She has banked $289,073 lifetime.   Off as the even money favorite on the tote-board, She's All In returned $4.20 to her multitude of backers.   Finally, there was nary a winning ticket in the Super Hi-5 finale on Tuesday, vaulting the carryover to $5,206.36 for the Wednesday night card, which is scheduled to begin at 7:20 p.m.   by John Berry for Pompano Park
