After a year away from the sulky, Eric Ledford drove again on Saturday—in Budapest, Hungary—and won twice in seven starts. Ledford, who recently accepted a $9,000 fine and one-year suspension (with credit for time served) from the New Jersey Commission after being arrested March 31, 2006, with his father, Seldon, and three others for alleged possession of Aranesp and other substances, is due in a New Jersey courthouse Thursday for criminal sentencing.

One of Ledford’s drives at Kincsem Park Racecourse came with the 8-year-old gelding trotter Incredible Cole, who was claimed at the Meadowlands for $33,330 on March 16, 2006 by owner Jozsefne Rutkej of Budapest. Incredible Cole, who had North American earnings of nearly a quarter-million dollars before being claimed and brought to Germany, finished third.

Ledford’s two wins came with 4-year-old trotters named Jeanne Sun and Joban-Rosszban. He also had a fourth and a fifth-place finish; his two other mounts made breaks.
