Cool Cates, Harness Racing

Cool Cates takes Buckette in 1:56

Delaware, OH --- Cool Cates beat Satin Dancer to the front on the first turn and it proved decisive as she marched to a 1:56 win in Wednesday’s (Sept. 20) $80,575 Buckette Stakes for harness racing 3-year-old female trotters at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. Satin Dancer was second, beaten by 1-1/4 lengths, and Maewegonow was third. Feed Your Head, the morning-line favorite from the stable of trainer Jimmy Takter, was scratched. Cool Cates, driven by Andy McCarthy, and Satin Dancer were quickest off the starting gate, but Cool Cates got the lead from post two on her way to an opening quarter-mile of :27.2. The field reached the half in :57.3, at which point Maewegonow was making a first-over bid and nearing Satin Dancer in second place. The group held those positions to three-quarters, in 1:26.4, and Cool Cates trotted home from there. “I sort of thought we would end up on the front today; on paper once Takter’s horse was scratched I sort of thought we were the best,” said Noel Daley, who trains Cool Cates for owner All Laid Out Stable. “She’s no champion, but she’s a nice filly. She’s been on her game of late. She’s a lot more controllable now in the races. “I did sort of expect her to be pretty good today.” Cool Cates (Yankee Glide) has won five of 12 races this year and seven of 20 in her career, good for $251,379 in purses. She has three wins and two second-place finishes in her last five starts. She was the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship runner-up on Sept. 3. “She will go to Lexington next,” Daley said about Cool Cates’ schedule. “We just hope we can dodge some of the good ones there in the Bluegrass. If she’s good enough we’ll drop her in (the Kentucky Filly Futurity). Obviously, we’re not beating Ariana G, but if she has a good week we’ll put her in there. “They’re going to breed her to Muscle Hill next year, so we’ll do what we can in between,” he added. Cool Cates, the even-money second choice behind 4-5 favorite Satin Dancer, paid $4.00 to win. It was both Daley’s and McCarthy’s first win in the Buckette. "We bought her for $35,000 down in Lexington and she's a nice filly but as a 2-year-old she was a little tough to manage," said Daley. "She was this year too early on but she really has been coming around. Adding Lasix helped her and she's also begun to mentally mature." -- Kim French contributed to this report by Ken Weingartner, Harness Racing Communications

Delaware, OH --- Blazin Britches won the $54,650 first elimination of the Jugette for harness racing 3-year-old female pacers in 1:52.1 on Wednesday (Sept. 20) at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. Obvious Blue Chip finished second, followed by Terrortina and Rockin Serena to advance to the final later this afternoon. Sent off at odds of 1-9, Blazin Britches and driver Trace Tetrick went to the lead on the first turn and never looked back, winning by 2-1/4 lengths. The filly, who has won 10 of 11 races this year, is trained by Brian Brown and owned by breeder Emerald Highlands Farm. Blazin Britches set fractions of :28.1, :57 and 1:24.4. Obvious Blue Chip tried to challenge heading around the final turn, but was unable to get within striking distance. “I wanted to be on the move to the front by the backside to try to control the race,” Tetrick said. “I had plenty of mare left; it was just trying to get her to pay attention. She kind of got to daydreaming there a little bit. “She loves her job. When it was time to race she wanted to go forward. "She was a little headstrong earlier on and Brian went ahead and changed bits on her. Since then she has been perfect. She really loves her work." Caviart Ally romped to victory in the second $54,650 Jugette elimination, winning by open lengths in 1:52 for driver Andy McCarthy and trainer Noel Daley. Caviart Ally, the 8-5 favorite, led every step of the way. She pulled away from her rivals on the backstretch and was unthreatened from there. Tequila Monday finished second, followed by Idyllic Beach and Ella Christina to reach the final. Caviart Ally, a daughter of Bettor's Delight-Allamerican Cool owned by Caviart Farms, has won five of 14 races this year. She set fractions of :27.1, :56.3, and 1:23.4 on her way to victory. “She’s very handy off the gate,” McCarthy said. “You just have to chirp to her a little bit and she will get out of there as much as you want to. That definitely helped. She actually got a little bumpy on me coming out of the third turn. I think we were going too slow; she just wanted to get going. I had to let her pace out a little bit to get her smoothed out and she was good. "Over the last few months she has become much stronger," added McCarthy. "I used to always race from off the pace for that reason but I don't have to anymore. They did add Lasix as well, so that may have helped, but she is coming into her own." The post-position order for the $163,950 final is: 1. Blazin Britches, 2. Caviart Ally, 3. Obvious Blue Chip, 4. Tequila Monday, 5. Terrortina, 6. Idyllic Beach, 7. Ella Christina, 8. Rockin Serena. -- Kim French contributed to this report by Ken Weingartner, Harness Racing Communications

"When she's like this, in North America anyway, I'll take on any trotter," said Gingras following Hannelore Hanover's sensational performance. JL Cruze shot out to grab the early lead and posted a snappy opening quarter of :26.2. Hannelore Hanover settled into third in the early going, while Gingras waited to make his move. Hannelore Hanover came with a second quarter rush and secured the lead in time to post a half of :54.3. Odds On Amethyst came first up in the third quarter and got up to the wheel of the leader, but Gingras got a comfortable third quarter of :28.4 to lead at that station in 1:23.2. In the stretch, Hannelore Hanover waved goodbye to her rivals and trotted home strongly in :27.4 for her biggest victory to date. JL Cruze finished second, while Pasithea Face, the other mare in the field, was third. The superfecta was completed by Warrawee Roo. The victory is extra special for Hannelore Hanover's connections after coming up just short in last year's event. "Last year she raced her heart out and was second to Resolve in a great race," said co-owner Baldachino. "For her to come back a year later and actually win it, it's real sweet and very special." A daughter of Swan For All, Hannelore Hanover is now six for 10 this season with $531,754 earned. The talented trotting mare surpassed $1.9 million in career earnings with her 32nd career win Saturday.

WILKES-BARRE PA - The Western Ideal mare Healthy Gain, a winner at a $49.60 mutuel in "nw 5" company at The Meadows in her previous start, shipped northeast to The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono and won again in the same class Tuesday, victorious in the $16,000 featured pace for harness racing fillies and mares while taking a new lifetime mark of 1:51.4 - and returning only $6.60 as the favorite of the crowd. Leading driver George Napolitano Jr. made every pole a winning one with the invader and the pair had an easy time of it, winning by four lengths. Trainer Gary Johnston shares ownership of the in-form four-year-old with Tracy Chropek. The win with Healthy Gain was "George Nap"'s third win of the night - he later added a fourth by scoring in the $14,000 co-featured pace for distaffs, with Marlee B also passing every pole in front en route to a 1:51.1 victory. The winning Mach Three mare had a harder time in getting to Victory Lane, however, as she was used to get command from the outside post eight, held off the first-up bid of favored Graceful Vision, then needed to dig in to fend off potential pocket rocket UF's Dragon Queen by a nose, with Graceful Vision only another half-length off at the wire. Hunter Oakes trains the winner of $431,870 lifetime for Synerco Ventures Inc. Update; George Nap wins five on the night. PHHA / Pocono

On Tuesday September 19, Monticello Raceway hosted it's 8th and final leg of the 2017 New York Sire Stakes Season featuring harness racing 2 year old pacing fillies. The first Sire Stakes event of the afternoon was a six horse field that competed for a purse of $53,500. Betting favorite KJ's Bekah (Jason Bartlett) made a nasty break in the middle of the first turn and went to his knees. Jim Morrill Jr. took advantage of the miscue with the improving Wisdom Tree (PP2) and reeled off fractions of 28.2, 58.2, 1:27.4 tripping the beam in 1:55.2 to score a no nonsense win by 2 lengths, over longshot Sand Artist (Jim Marohn Jr.) and Mink Pink (Matt Kakaley). Wisdom Tree (Betterthancheddar - Wisdom) filly is trained by Ed Hart, and is owned by Thomas Pollack and Jeff Cullipher, in the process she scored her first pari mutual win and returned $6.50 to the faithful. In typical Jim Morrill Jr. fashion, he sent the 4/5 favorite Alexis Faith from the rail, down the road and played catch me if you can in the final Sire Stakes ($54,500) of the afternoon and led the field to the first stanza in a brisk 27 and continued to show the way to the half in 56.1, down the backside former regular top Monticello driver Jim Marohn Jr. had Azreal As It Gets in perfect striking position and came first over. Alexis Faith was still on top as the field sped to the ¾ in 1:25.2, at this point it looked like the track record of 1:55 was in serious jeopardy as Marohn Jr and Azreal As It Gets continued to grind down pace setter Alexis Faith who tired late in the lane to prevail in 1:55.2 by a slim margin, the win was 2/5's off the track record of 1:55 set by Planet Rock last year. Hurrikane Shorty (Jason Bartlett) redeemed herself after being off her grain in a dull performace last week, finished a game 2nd, pacesetter Alexis Faith was third. The win was Azreal As It Gets second consecutive win after her win last week at Batavia Downs for trainer Jake Huff. The So Surreal - Vanite Semalu filly is owned by Our Horse Cents Stable and Stable 45. Jim Morrill had 3 wins on the afternoon, Bruce Aldrich Jr. took both divisions of Excelsior B's, leaving him just 5 wins shy of career win 7,000. Leading Monticello Raceway driver Jim DeVaux had 1 win on the card, he needs 27 more wins to become a member of the 5,000 club. Breeding shed banter saw both Rock N Roll Heaven and Art Major each has a pair of winners. Excelsior A - $15,000 Majorette Angie - 1:57.2 - $8.60 - Jim Morrill Jr./ Checkered Past - 1:58 - $6.60 - Jim Morrill Jr. Jericho Diva - 1:57.3 - Jim DeVaux - $9.30 Excelsior B - $6,500 Heavens Diva -2:00.4 - $2.10 - Bruce Aldrich / With Wings - 1:59.1 - $3.50 - Bruce Aldrich By: Shawn Wiles

Boogie Shuffle will have to beat the best harness racing 3-year-old pacers in North America to win Thursday's $590,400 Little Brown Jug and owner Bob Tambur wouldn't want it any other way. "That's what sports are all about," said Tambur, the owner of Fox Hollow Farm, which bred and owns Boogie Shuffle. "You want to be there. The fact you're there, that you're one of the better horses in the country, that's big. "I never dreamed I'd get to the Jug. But here we are. I'm a lucky guy." Boogie Shuffle brings a three-race win streak, and four wins in his past five starts, to the Little Brown Jug, presented by the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association, at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in central Ohio. The eight-horse field also includes Fear The Dragon, the No. 1-ranked horse in harness racing's Top 10 poll, and No. 3 Downbytheseaside. "If you want to be a top horse you've got to race against the best," said Tambur, who lives in northeast Pennsylvania. "Now we are racing against the best." The Little Brown Jug is the third jewel in the Pacing Triple Crown. Huntsville, who was not entered in the Little Brown Jug, won the first, the Cane Pace, while Downbytheseaside won the second, the Messenger Stakes. This year's race ushers in a new era for the Little Brown Jug, which previously required a horse to win two heats to be declared the event's champion. Beginning this year, the race's conditions were altered so that eliminations only establish an eight-horse field for the final later in the day. The Little Brown Jug champion is the winner of the final regardless of finish position in his elimination. With eight horses in this year's field, all will advance to the $401,472 final. The post positions for the final will be determined by the official order of finish in the $188,928 first heat, with the winning horse assigned post position one and all others taking their positions in the order they were placed in the first heat. Boogie Shuffle, a son of 2009 Little Brown Jug winner Well Said out of the mare Ciela Hanover, will start the first round from post six and is 6-1 on the morning line. Downbytheseaside, in post five, is the 2-1 favorite while Fear The Dragon is the second choice, at 7-2. Downbytheseaside and Fear The Dragon are both trained by Brian Brown, who is based at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. Brian Sears will drive Downbytheseaside while David Miller, who with a win Thursday can equal the record of five Little Brown Jug victories, will be behind Fear The Dragon. Scott Zeron will drive Boogie Shuffle for trainer Mark Harder. "One thing about (Boogie Shuffle), he's got gate speed," Tambur said. "We'll see what happens. It's up to Scotty." Boogie Shuffle began this season with a win and four third-place finishes in his first five races. In his next four races, though, he finished no better than sixth. It was discovered the horse was suffering from stomach ulcers and his recent return to top form followed treatment for the issue. His three-race win streak includes the $252,000 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship Sept. 3 at Harrah's Philadelphia. Boogie Shuffle won the event in a career-best 1:48.2. "Even when he was sick, he was trying," Tambur said. "Mark kept saying the horse is a good horse. He knew there was something wrong; it was just a matter of figuring it out and getting the horse right. It was very frustrating. But Mark never gave up on that horse, nor did Scotty. "Those two guys stuck with me. I have admiration for both of them. I give both those guys a lot of credit; a lot of character there." For his career, Boogie Shuffle has won six of 27 races and earned $362,543. Last year, he won only one of 13 races but finished among the top three a total of 10 times. "Last year, he would slow down when a horse came alongside of him," Tambur said. "This year, he goes for it. He's a little older, a little smarter. And he's strong. We think he will be great to go two races (in the Jug). I'm not saying we're going to win, but he doesn't get tired easily." Tambur, whose business ventures include a financial company and real estate development, got started in harness racing a little more than two decades ago. He is looking forward to his first trip to the Little Brown Jug. "I'm in it for the dream," Tambur said. "When you breed a horse on your farm and you raise him and he goes out and does well, I get a big kick out of it. "We've got a lot of good races ahead of us. I'm optimistic, but we're racing with the best of them." Right where he wants to be. Following is the draw for the opening heat for the 72nd Little Brown Jug. It is race No. 16 with an approximate 4 p.m. post time. All eight horses will return for the final, which is race No. 20. PP Horse Sire (Driver/Trainer) Morning Line Odds 1. Funknwaffles by American Ideal (Corey Callahan/John Butenschoen) 10-1 2. Filibuster Hanover by Somebeachsomewhere (Yannick Gingras/Ron Burke) 5-1 3. Fear The Dragon by Dragon Again (David Miller/Brian Brown) 7-2 4. Miso Fast by Roll With Joe (Matt Kakaley/Ron Burke) 12-1 5. Downbytheseaside by Somebeachsomewhere (Brian Sears/Brian Brown) 2-1 6. Boogie Shuffle by Well Said (Scott Zeron/Mark Harder) 6-1 7. R J P by Somebeachsomewhere (Tim Tetrick/Ron Buke) 15-1 8. Chip Walther  by Art Major (Marcus Miller/Erv Miller) 20-1 Ken Weingartner

Delaware, OH --- Cool Cates beat Satin Dancer to the front on the first turn and it proved decisive as she marched to a 1:56 win in Wednesday’s (Sept. 20) $80,575 Buckette Stakes for harness racing 3-year-old female trotters at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. Satin Dancer was second, beaten by 1-1/4 lengths, and Maewegonow was third. Feed Your Head, the morning-line favorite from the stable of trainer Jimmy Takter, was scratched. Cool Cates, driven by Andy McCarthy, and Satin Dancer were quickest off the starting gate, but Cool Cates got the lead from post two on her way to an opening quarter-mile of :27.2. The field reached the half in :57.3, at which point Maewegonow was making a first-over bid and nearing Satin Dancer in second place. The group held those positions to three-quarters, in 1:26.4, and Cool Cates trotted home from there. “I sort of thought we would end up on the front today; on paper once Takter’s horse was scratched I sort of thought we were the best,” said Noel Daley, who trains Cool Cates for owner All Laid Out Stable. “She’s no champion, but she’s a nice filly. She’s been on her game of late. She’s a lot more controllable now in the races. “I did sort of expect her to be pretty good today.” Cool Cates (Yankee Glide) has won five of 12 races this year and seven of 20 in her career, good for $251,379 in purses. She has three wins and two second-place finishes in her last five starts. She was the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship runner-up on Sept. 3. “She will go to Lexington next,” Daley said about Cool Cates’ schedule. “We just hope we can dodge some of the good ones there in the Bluegrass. If she’s good enough we’ll drop her in (the Kentucky Filly Futurity). Obviously, we’re not beating Ariana G, but if she has a good week we’ll put her in there. “They’re going to breed her to Muscle Hill next year, so we’ll do what we can in between,” he added. Cool Cates, the even-money second choice behind 4-5 favorite Satin Dancer, paid $4.00 to win. It was both Daley’s and McCarthy’s first win in the Buckette. "We bought her for $35,000 down in Lexington and she's a nice filly but as a 2-year-old she was a little tough to manage," said Daley. "She was this year too early on but she really has been coming around. Adding Lasix helped her and she's also begun to mentally mature." -- Kim French contributed to this report by Ken Weingartner, Harness Racing Communications
