« Return to News
George Brennan has been one of Yonkers' leading drivers for many years, and there is nothing more he'd like to do than win his first-ever Messenger. Brennan spoke to Gordon Waterstone in the new and free HarnessRacing Weekend Preview about his chances with the Tony Alagna-trained Babes Dig Me in Saturday night's second jewel of pacing's Triple Crown at Yonkers Raceway.
The middle jewel of trotting's Triple Crown, the Yonkers Trot, will also be raced Saturday, and trainer George Ducharme talks about his chances with The Veteran, who drew the outside post 8 in the $500,000 contest.
Not since Cardigan Bay arrived in the U.S. in 1964 has a Down Under star pacer created as much buzz as Lazarus N, who hopes to build on an impressive debut win three weeks ago at Hoosier Park in Saturday's Canadian Pacing Derby at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Trainer Jimmy Takter and driver Yannick Gingras give their take on the North American newcomer and his early impact.
Speaking of Takter, find out his thoughts about Ariana G paying a hefty $23.60 in her Maple Leaf Trot elimination, and what he expects for Saturday's final. And he speaks his mind about a new race just announced for 2019 at Red Mile, a $1 million event for 2-year-old trotters and one that is believed to have a price of $100,000 per starting slot.
There's also plenty of Pennsylvania Sires Stakes action this weekend, with championships decided for all eight divisions at The Meadows and Pocono Downs. Kathy Parker talked to trainer Noel Daley about his 2-year-old filly trotter Ma Was Right, who also captured a Kentucky Sires Stakes division last time out at Red Mile.
