Atlanta cruises in TVG prep at Big M
The fastest trotter in Big M history by virtue of her 1:49.1 clocking On July 6 of this year, Atlanta toyed with a talented field in the mile oval's featured $30,000 Preferred for trotters.
Sent to the gate as the 3-5 public choice, driver Yannick Gingras put Atlanta on the early lead, hitting the quarter in :27.3. After a sleepy second fraction of :29.4 followed, it was all but over right then and there.
The 4-year-old daughter of Chapter Seven-Hemi Blue Chip never had an anxious moment, hitting the finish 2¼ lengths in front of the pocket-sitting-thro... more...
Dancin Yankee to stand at Ohio’s Cool Winds Farm
A perennial iron horse with 80 lifetime wins, as well as a fan favorite, the 11-year-old son of Yankee Cruiser earned over $115,000 in each of the last nine of his 10 racing seasons. Perhaps the best Ohio-sired horse of all time, Dancin Yankee recently eclipsed $2 million in lifetime earnings while copping his 11th victory of 2019.
“He’s the best blue collar horse I’ve ever driven,” said driver Chris Page. “He shows up every single week and gives you everything he... more...
Angers Bayama, Lifetime Royalty win Harvest finals
An 11-race card featured a trio of main events with a pair of Harvest Series finals for Ontario-sired 3-year-old colts and geldings and a $34,000 Preferred Pace.
Easy Lover Hanover became harness racing’s newest millionaire with 1:51.4 victory in the $34,000 Preferred Pace. The Ben Wallace trainee scored his eighth win of the season and 42nd in 106 career starts to cross the $1 million (C) mark.
Sitting second-over at three-quarters, Easy Lover Hanover displayed the determination that fans have become accustomed to seeing by charging down the centre of the track and overta... more...
Swansea, Jack’s Legend N win Yonkers opens
Swansea rolled from second-over in the week’s marquee trot, picking off a stubborn Will Take Charge (Jordan Stratton). From post position No. 5, he prevailed by a length in 1:55.1.
Will Take Charge won the scrum for the lead, an early battle which included Emoticon Hanover (Dan Dube) jumping it off and 13-10 favorite Tight Lines (Bartlett) getting stuffed back into a three-hole after he tried quarter-moving.
It was Will Take Charge laying down the law (:27.4, :57) before Pat Matters (Eric Goodell) took out of f... more...
Ohio’s Swapportunity wins Wolverine-Buckeye Challenge
Swapportunity left strongly from post two to establish close inside position, but yielded to Still Friskie (David Lake) and OGradys First Man (Don Harmon) through a :27 first quarter before Art McIlmurray angled him first-over with five-eighths to go. Swapportunity forced middle splits of :56.1 and 1:25.1 before pressing his way to the lead on approach to the final turn.
After putting Still Friskie away and extending his lead to two lengths midway on the final turn, Swa... more...
Highlights galore as Pocono closes 2019 season
But stealing the show was 23-year-old provisional driver Sofia Zingale, who picked a dramatic circumstance in which to record her first-ever sulky victory – in the final $15,000 Billings Amateur Driving Series Eastern Championship.
Zingale looked like a seasoned pro behind the veteran Muscles Yankee gelding Inukchuck Chuck, racing him second-over behind Jacks To Open after Wygant Prince went past early leader and favorite Fiji and put up fractions of :27.4 and :58 in 27-degree temperatures. The pacesetter and first-over went at it past the 1:28... more...
Missile J prevails in Dayton feature
The 6-year-old son of American Ideal won for just the third time in 18 seasonal starts—earning $48,955—but the 1:51.2 score was his 26th in his career and boosted his lifetime bounty to $831,902.
Dispatched at 10-1 odds, Missile J (Jeremy Smith) was content to get away fourth from the rail until launching a first-over attack just after the halfway juncture. After lapping in on the odds-on favorite, Tookadiveoffdipper (Brett Miller), at the three-quarter mile marker, the winner tacked on a :27.1 final panel... more...
