The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono Week in Review

It was a busy week of stakes action at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. There were big-money races held each night, with both two-year-old trotting fillies and three-year-old pacing fillies competing in both Pennsylvania Sire Stakes and Stallion Series action. There were some scintillating performances and some head-scratching winners. And one of those stakes winners also has been doing damage in the overnight races at Pocono, making her the perfect candidate to lead off the Weekly Awards. PACER OF THE WEEK: ATTENTION HANOVER This three-year-old filly has shown a knack for being able to win no matter what the race throws at her. She started her hot streak with a win against non-winners of two at Pocono on July 2 by going gate to wire in a career-best 1:51.2. At Harrah's for her next start, she came on with a first-over victory. On July 22 at Pocono, Attention Hanover passed four horses in the stretch for an upset win at 15-1. Finally, after a near-miss second, she scored at 8-1 with a pocket trip and rally in a condition group on August 5. That meant she rode into Sunday night's $20,000 Stallion Series races for three-year-old pacing fillies with wins in four of her last five races, all coming in unique fashion. As the even-money favorite leaving from post position #4 in a field of seven, she sat the pocket seat once again, this time behind pacesetting Butchie Beach. Driver Eric Carlson then made the crucial decision to tip Attention Hanover to the outside late to follow the cover of the first-over mover Sandy's Beach. That proved to be a stroke of genius, because it gave Attention Hanover the opportunity to rally. Instead of getting blocked behind a faltering horse, the filly was able to spin off the cover and overtake Sandy's Beach for a victory by 1 ½ lengths in 1:51.2, which was the fastest of the three Stallion Series splits that night. Her win gives Attention Hanover victories in five of her last six starts, each one of them unique unto itself but still building toward her overall excellent record. Other top pacers this week include: Hallie's Comet (Pal LaChance driver and trainer), who rallied from off the pace for a second consecutive condition win on Sunday night, this one coming in 1:51.3; Sea's Ideal (George Napolitano Jr., Hunter Oakes), who churned through sloppy conditions on Monday night to pick up her second straight claiming victory in a career-best 1:51.4; and Rock Absorber (George Napolitano Jr., Brandon Todd), whose victory in a condition pace on Saturday night in 1:50.2 not only matched a career mark but also was the fastest pacing time of the week at Pocono. TROTTER OF THE WEEK: ABC MUSCLES BOY One of the reasons that Rene Allard has been the top trainer for several years running at Pocono is because his horses never stay down for too long. They may suffer slumps at some point during the meet, but they generally rally from those slumps, right the ship and come back hotter than ever. Case in point: ABC Muscles Boy. The seven-year-old gelding had always been a solid performer in the past, but he started his 2018 season off with five straight finishes out of the money. On August 6, he was dropped into our lowest condition group. Needing the boost of confidence that comes with victory, ABC Muscles Boy responded with a solid win, handling the field by eight lengths in a sharp time of 1:54.3. Riding high once again, he moved up into the $11,000 condition trotting group on Monday night. Recognizing his potential, the bettors made him a 3-5 favorite even with the move up in class. Leaving from post position #6 in a field of eight, ABC Muscles Boy was sent right to the front end by driver Brian Sears. Even in a torrential downpour and extremely sloppy conditions, he held the lead with little concern. By the time the stretch rolled around, he was once again well ahead of his competition, coasting home for the victory in 1:55.2. It looks like we have another Allard trainee moving back up the ladder, his slump long since a thing of the past. Honorable mention on the trotting side goes to: I'm Your Captain (Andy Miller, Julie Miller), who followed up back-to-back wins at Harrah's with a condition win at Pocono on Sunday night in a career-best 1:53.4; Silvermass Volo (Eric Carlson, Michael Holcman), who tore it up for a condition win on Sunday night in 1:53.1, matching the fastest trotting time of the week at Pocono; and Beautiful Sin (Yannick Gingras, Jimmy Takter), whose winning time of 1:56.3 was the fastest of three divisions of Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotting fillies held on Monday night in the slop. LONG SHOT OF THE WEEK: RIPROY There were a bunch of long shots that scored on Saturday night, but this pacer driven by Tom Jackson topped them all, winning a claiming handicap at 55-1 and paying off $117 on a $2 win ticket. (Correction from last week: In last week's column, I misidentified the Long Shot of the Week. The honor should have gone to Mandela Blue Chip. My apologies for the mistake.) DRIVER OF THE WEEK: BRIAN SEARS Sears makes occasional appearances at Pocono on stakes nights, and he made the most of a visit on Monday, scoring five victories, including a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes win with Swizzle Sticks. TRAINER OF THE WEEK: JIM CAMPBELL Campbell won a Sire Stakes on Saturday night with three-year-old pacing filly Alexa's Power, and then scored another on Monday night with two-year-old trotting filly Swizzle Sticks. That will do it for this week at Pocono, but we'll see you at the track. Feel free to e-mail me at jbeviglia@mohegansunpocono.com. by Jim Beviglia, for Pocono Down

Southwind Storm, harness racing

Southwind Storm sweeps PA Stallion Series

WILKES-BARRE, PA - Southwind Storm thundered through her Pennsylvania Stallion Series' four preliminary legs undefeated, as the Muscle Hill - Say What filly completed the quarter by winning one of the seven two-year-old trotting filly divisions over "sloppy" going Tuesday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Pat Berry hustled the Ron Burke trainee to an open length margin during a 27.2 opening quarter and set sail on the lead, and the winner maintained her advantage all the way to the wire, although Southwind Percy charged at her during the last quarter and fell short by only a nose at the end of the 1:58.4 mile. Southwind Storm is owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC, Lawrence Karr, J&T Silva- Purnel & Libby, and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Two fillies became two-time StS prelim winners while triumphing. First in that twosome was the Possess The Will - Raising Rachel miss Fashion Rachel, who built up a huge lead then coasted home to be 2½ lengths clear at the wire in 1:58 to equal her mark and post the fastest divisional clocking. Her connections - driver Mike Simons, trainer Jim Campbell, and the Fashion Farms LLC of newly-installed Hall of Famer Jules Siegel -- had a double on the night, as the Muscle Hill - I'm On Cloud Nine filly Cloud Nine Fashion remained undefeated in three purse starts by making her first Stallion Series effort a winning one in 1:58.4, making a giant recovery from an early miscue to catch When Dovescry by a nose. The other series doubler also topped a two-win night for the Team Orange Crush of trainer/wife Julie and driver/husband Andy Miller: Cardinale, who lowered her mark to 1:58.4. The Cantab Hall - Mississippi Beauty filly gained command before the quarter and went on to defeat Navarone Hanover, the only other miss with two StS prelim triumphs in to go Tuesday (Fast Reaction sat out the final prelim), by 1¼ lengths for the Andy Miller Stable Inc., Willow Oak Ranch, and Odonnell Equine LLC. By the way, Cardinale was the second choice and the only non-chalk to win in the seven races - those who say "two-year-old trotting fillies" with a sneer can stand in the corner, reading the program from this night. The Millers' other winner was PA stakes debutante American Kronos, a Donato Hanover - Glide About filly who brushed to the lead by going her own third quarter in 28.2, finishing out in 1:58.3 to tie her race mark and remained undefeated in two purse contests for Marvin Katz, Al Libfeld, and D. David Goodrow. The other two stakes siring credits went to Cantab Hall, giving him three on the night. One was Fraulein Blucher, whose dam was Frau Blucher, one of only two horses to win $500,000 strictly in PA Sire Stakes competition (the other was Wild Honey). Fraulein Bucker scored her first purse triumph in 1:59.1, a half-length ahead of Paint The Corners for driver Anthony Napolitano, trainer Nancy Johansson, and the ownership of Hauser Brothers Racing Enterprises LLC and the Rojan Stables. Biggest margin of victory was the 3¼ lengths Mimi'spearloflindy had on her competition at the end of her maiden victory in 1:59.1. Brian Sears was in the sulky behind the Cantab Hall - Lindy's Showgirl distaff for trainer Marcus Melander and Holly Lane Stud East LLC. The Harness Bureau of the Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission is the official keeper of PA-sired competition points, but an unofficial tally of the standings after the races yielded these ten as the leading pointwinners: 1. Southwind Storm, 2. Navarone Hanover, 3. Fast Reaction, 4. Paint The Corners, 5. (tie) Chanel De Vie and Southwind Percy, 7. Wildfire Seeslter, 8. (tie) Cardinale and Fashion Rachel, 10. (tie) I'mallthatmatters and Lollipop Lindy. There is of course the possibility that one or more of the top horses may not declare in for the Championship, and the horses "on the bubble" do have the prospect of a consolation race at Harrah's Philadelphia on Labor Day if enough fillies declare in.

De Los Cielos Deo, harness racing

De Los Cielos Deo remains undefeated

WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 14, 2018 -- While horses usually don't bet, in Tuesday's $188,111 Pennsylvania Sires Stake at The Meadows, De Los Cielos Deo hit a rare trifecta: he extended his career unbeaten streak to five; he completed a sweep of the four PASS preliminary legs; he vaulted over $100,000 in earnings. The event for freshman colt and gelding pacers, known as the Tyler B, was contested over three divisions, with Crimson And Chrome and Captain Victorious taking the other splits. De Los Cielos Deo quarter-poled to the front for Yannick Gingras and cruised home in 1:52, 1-1/2 lengths better than the first-over Proof. Ehrmantraut earned show. The victory continued the PASS domination of De Los Cielos Deo, who captured his four wins by a combined 9 lengths. Ron Burke, who trains the son of Captaintreacherous-Lisjune -- a $140,000 yearling purchase for Burke Racing Stable, Larry Karr, J&T Silva-Purnel& Libby and Weaver Bruscemi LLC -- said he would train the colt up to the $252,000 PASS championship (Sept. 1 at The Meadows) rather than seek a prep race. "I don't worry about getting starts for these kinds of colts," Burke said. "I'd rather save starts than get starts. Bad horses need races. Good horses will train themselves up. It took me forever to learn that. "He has top-range potential. For as long as we've been training him down, I've said this is easily the best colt we've had since Sweet Lou. Before the year's over, I think he'll do something special." Victorious in his only previous PASS start, Crimson And Chrome made it two straight by erasing a 3-length deficit in the lane for Tim Tetrick and downing Semi Tough by 1/2 length in 1:51.3. Air Force Hanover completed the ticket. "He kind of struggled early," said winning trainer Jim King, Jr. "He had lots of determination, lots of good things to like about him, but it didn't come that easy to him. So we just took our time with him. We were mostly concerned with making him a good 3-year-old. We're underway for that; it's a good start." Tim Tetrick LLC owns the Sweet Lou-McSauna gelding, who's eligible for the Liberty Bell, the Simpson and the Keystone Classic at The Meadows. Captain Victorious found himself in an unfamiliar first-over chase but made the most of it for David Miller, holding off Sugar Factory by a neck in a stake-fastest 1:51.2. Cruise Captain was third. "It wasn't the trip I wanted to give him," Miller said. "He got a little rough when the gate folded, and that cost him getting away. He went a big trip first over. He was pretty game." Julie Miller conditions the son of Captain Treacherous-Belclare for Andy Miller Stable, Jean Goehlen and Caroll Huffman. In the $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot, Call For Justice shot the Lightning Lane and made it two straight with a 1:53.4 score for Dave Palone, Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi. The 6-year-old son of Justice Hall-Mika's Mazurka now boasts $526,067 in career earnings. Stake racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday, when the card features an $80,000 PA Stallion Series stake for 2-year-old filly pacers. First post is 1:05 PM. by Evan Pattak, for The Meadows

Empty Gesture, harness racing

Empty Gesture, Iced Out in career bests

Plainville, MA --- With 16 of the best pacing mares currently racing in Massachusetts gathered in two divisions of Winners-Over $10,000 lifetime events that highlighted the Tuesday afternoon (Aug. 14) card at Plainridge Park with both winners claiming victory via lifetime best efforts. In the first $16,000 division, Empty Gesture (Chris Long) defied her 10-1 odds and went right to the front to cut quarters of :26.1, :54.2 and 1:22.3, parking out Acefortyfour Alex (Mitchell Cushing) and Show Runner (Greg Merton) and then holding off Western Stepp (Nick Graffam) at the wire to win by a neck in 1:52.2, which was a new lifetime mark. It was the seventh win of the year for Empty Gesture ($22.40) and second for owner/trainer Jennifer Allen who claimed the mare for $12,000 back on July 3. The second $14,000 distaff pacing feature was won by Iced Out (Mitchell Cushing) who took a similar path to victory; on the front end cutting fractions of :26.4, :56 and 1:23.3 before rebuffing mild bids from Iheartquestionmark (Eric Davis) and Cameo Delight (Mike Stevenson) to pull away to a two length win in 1:52.3. That time was also a new lifetime mark for the winner. Iced Out ($6.80) scored her first win since the second week of June for owner Little Bapa and her trainer Eric Beach. Beach had the hot hand in the training department on Tuesday, sending four of his students to get their pictures taken. Besides the already mentioned Iced Out, Beach also conditioned Dakota Sleek (1:54, $22.60), Bestfriendforever (1:54.3, $4.60) and Spilling The Beans (1:55.1, $2.60) to victory. Greg Merton led all drivers on Tuesday with three wins. Racing resumes at Plainridge Park on Thursday (Aug. 16) with post time at 4 p.m. by Tim Bojarski, for the Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts  

Champion driver Dexter Dunn's much-delayed North American campaign is finally about to begin. The 10-time premiership winning harness driver flies to New York tonight for at least six weeks of driving on the East Coast of the United States and it is very much a case of better late than never. Dunn had hoped to be in New Jersey two months ago so he could drive and make contacts in North American harness racing for at least three or even four months. But visa issues have frustrated Dunn and instead now he expects to be back home in Canterbury inside two months. "It has been frustrating but at least the visa I did eventually get is valid for three years so I won't have to go through this again next year," says Dunn. "I am looking forward to getting up there and ideally would love to pick up a few drives next week." Dunn will be based with family friend and former Kiwi trainer Chris Ryder and thinks he is most likely to pick up drives at Chester, Pocono or Yonkers. The latter would be the best chance for Kiwi harness racing fans to track Dunn's progress or even take the chance to bet on him as Yonkers is covered on Trackside television. "To be honesty it might not be the ideal time to be going as the good horses will start racing here soon but I didn't have that much lined up in the way of open class pacers. "And I still really want to go and experience the racing up there again. If it all goes well I could stay a little longer but at this stage I think I will be back around early October. "While that isn't as long as I would have liked it should at least give me a break as well as a chance to make contacts for when I go back next season, all going well." With Dunn set to be off the New Zealand scene for at least six weeks don't expect the TAB to open a market on the driver's premiership any time soon. After years of pressure they finally did so last season as Blair Orange broke Dunn's stranglehold on the premiership but with Orange likely to have at least a six week headstart over Dunn this term the race for the premiership could be over before it begins. Orange's defence of his title could come down to whether he is willing to make regular trips to Manawatu as his wins there, mainly on Michael House-trained horses, were the difference in last season's premiership. "I'll be going back for sure," confirms Orange. "I have spoken to Michael and he will be looking to take a team to a lot of their meetings and I was well looked after there last season so I plan to be driving there again." Michael Guerin

Rodney DeBeck grew up in Lexington and as a child made frequent trips to The Red Mile, where he would imagine himself sitting behind horses speeding to victory. After spending some time as an adult working for a car dealership, he made his harness racing dream a reality. The 45-year-old DeBeck trains a six-horse stable at The Red Mile, which on Thursday hosts the first round of the Kentucky Sire Stakes for 2-year-old male and female trotters. Peter Haughton Memorial champion Don't Let'em headlines the card, competing in the first of two $30,000 divisions for the colts. DeBeck's Sleep In, a three-time winner on the Kentucky Fair Stakes circuit and runner-up in the fair final, is in the same division. "When I saw that, I thought: Oh my," said a laughing DeBeck, who in addition to training Sleep In also drives the horse. "This colt is an OK colt. He's still learning. He has ability. I don't know if he has the ability of (Don't Let'em) but he does have some go to him." DeBeck owns Sleep In with Dream Acres Equine. The colt is a son of Explosive Matter out of Misty Mollymorning, who is a full sister to millionaire Likeabatoutahell. He was purchased for $12,000 at the Lexington Selected Sale. "I'm going to try to play with the big boys this year," DeBeck said. "We tried last year, it just didn't work out. But anytime you race against these kinds of guys -- the Takters, the Burkes, the Tony Alagnas -- you just want to work harder so you can get where they are. That's my goal." DeBeck's drive in Thursday's sire stakes will be for the most lucrative purse of his career, although he has trained horses that have raced for more money. In 2015, Lonoke Valley Chip and Coyote's Star both finished second in $175,000 Kentucky Sire Stakes championships. In 2016, Dazzling Rose was the runner-up in a KYSS final. "I've been fortunate to be in the sire stakes and be competitive," said DeBeck, who worked for 10 years for Kevin Thomas before starting his own stable. "I love the competition and the excitement. And, of course, making money. But growing up playing sports, I played football and baseball in high school, I'm very competitive. That's what I like about it. I go to the track, I don't care if you're my friend or not, I'm there to beat you." DeBeck, whose grandfather, Bill Head, ran the kitchen at The Red Mile in the 1960s and early 1970s, began racing on his own at The Red Mile in 2007. He got his first Red Mile training win in 2010 and his first driving win at the oval in 2012. "I was very nervous and very excited," DeBeck said about his first race at The Red Mile, which is located four miles from where he grew up. "It was a great experience. It still is. "When I was a young kid I dreamed of doing this stuff. It's great (to be at The Red Mile); you see friends that you went to high school with, they come out and see you. It gets you excited. It's a great feeling." DeBeck's plan is to continue racing a small stable and live his dream. "I just try to do my best," DeBeck said. "I do everything myself. It makes for a very long day, but I enjoy it. I enjoy being with my horses and working with my horses. I think that's how you get to learn what the horse needs and what his wants are. "This is what I want to do for the rest of my life, until I can't do it anymore. If I don't have horses myself, I'll work for somebody. I love all the business. To me, there are no bad days. Any time you wake up and get to do what you love, it's great." by Ken Weingartner, for USTA

This month in the New Vocations Horse Highlight we are featuring a well-known, classy horse through the Midwest, Virgil, donated by Tyler and Cassie George. As a racehorse, Virgil, the beautiful black gelding stepped onto the race track 95 times, making his way to the winners circle 18 times, rolling in over $200,000 to the bank. When talking with previous connections, Cassie George, I could tell he was more than just a racehorse to him, he was a pet to her. "Virgil is definitely a girls horse; he loved me unconditionally but wasn't a fan of my husband or the vet," Casie chuckled. Virgil spent most of his time racing in Indiana, traveling over to Ohio here and there and made a trip out East a few times. Casie's favorite memory while racing Virgil is when he won the Ohio Ladies Pace final during Jug week at the Delaware County Fair. "When he won the ladies pace final, he sat last the whole mile and I still don't even know how he won, but he always finished with all he had, and that day he didn't disappoint, outside post and all. Even though the purse was small, watching that replay over and over again makes me smile every time. He made a lot of people happy that day and I think he knew it," explained Cassie. It was a very tough decision to make when it came time to place Virgil with New Vocations because Cassie loved having him in the barn, he was that one horse she looked forward to seeing every morning when she got there. But she knew to retire him was for the best. "He fractured his knee about two years ago, we rested him and tried him again but he was never the same 'Virgil.' He just wasn't being competitive anymore. One training day he just didn't seem himself in between training trips, so I completely stripped him, gave him a bubble bath and told Tyler not to worry about going a back with him again. I just didn't want to see him struggle," stated Cassie. "I know this is a business and about making money, but to me, it isn't everything, I want my horses to be taken care." Virgil is the kind of horse that always needs to have a job, the New Vocations program is perfect for him, as they are in search of a new home for him to give him a second career. Cassie said, "He loves having a job. He needed to have a purpose he wasn't quite content with being a pasture pet like my other two retires." "Virgil was a quick learner and loves being a riding horse. He has a great personality and seems to have a permanent smile on his face," stated Winnie Nemeth, Standardbred Program Director. Virgil will be posted very soon for adoption, be sure to visit www.newvocations.org and check out all of the amazing athletes we have for adoption, remember, make your next horse an ex-racehorse! by Jessica Otten, for Post Time with Mike and Mike

Cream Ridge, NJ - Aug. 14, 2018 - The 38 horses at risk for slaughter still have great needs. Most have been removed from harms way, but 13 need homes. Some had offers that have fallen through. The Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is unable to take on new horses at this time, with 393 already under its care and expense.   Without homes, the expenses for care weighs heavily on the 29-year-old non-profit. At $350 a month for each of them, and with colder months close by - it is likely they will be with SRF until spring or summer of next year. A few appear to have been in trailer or road accidents. Many will need a long period of rest and rehabilitation to become whole again, physically and in spirit.   Homes and donations are very much needed. To offer a home contact Tammy at 609-739-3255 or email SRFHorsesandkids@gmail.com. Donations are desperately needed. To help:   * SRF Paypal * SRF GoFundMe * SRF Website * Or contact Tammy at 609-738-3255 From the Standardbred Retirement Foundation

Budding freshman filly Zero Tolerance (Heston Blue Chip-Feelinglikeastar) picked up her third win in five career starts on Friday night, when she dominated a field of six in the $30,000 Geers Stakes for 2-year-old female pacers at Tioga Downs. She brushed to the top at the quarter and never looked back, completing the mile in 1:52.1 under minimal Dave Miller encouragement.  The ownership group of Val D'Or Farms and Ted Gewertz leaned on a familiar lineage when purchasing the filly for $30,000 at The Lexington Select Sale in 2017. Her dam (Feelinglikeastar) is a full sister to Hall of Famer Rainbow Blue, who is the dam of another Joe Holloway trainee Rainbow Room (p, 1:51.2 F, $467,880). Bred by Winbak Farm, Zero Tolerance is out of sire Heston Blue Chip's (p, 1:48 F, $1,781,881) first crop. "Zero Tolerance was a great looking filly," said Winbak Yearling Manager Jimmy Ladwig. "She was very racy and I loved her." The Holloway trainee started her career with a pair of successful qualifiers at The Meadowlands, in preparation for a June 29th pari-mutuel debut against fellow freshman fillies. She went on to win in 1:51.3 (:27.1 last quarter) as the prohibitive favorite. "She came off the gate and got away 5th, and came a tremendous three-quarters," said Holloway. "She came home good but she had to because Yannick got free with St Somewhere so we had to go on, but I was very pleased with that." St Somewhere did avenge that loss, however, in the very next meeting between the two, a Sire Stakes event at Tioga. "We got caught. St Somewhere was on her back," Holloway explained. "She managed to get out and catch us at the wire but once again, it was a strong back half and a strong last quarter." Zero Tolerance's next scheduled start was another New York Sire Stakes event, this time at Yonkers, where she was scratched sick.  She was right back in the box the very next week however, for her most recent outing, an overnight affair at Harrah's Philadelphia. She was sharp on the front end that afternoon, winning in 1:53.1 under minimal urging.  Going into her race Friday night, Holloway was optimistic. "She's been training good. I know the Yonkers race was for a lot more money, and I wish I was going for that, but we stayed away from going to Canada, and stayed away from going on the half, so these types of races will get us into September." That strategy paid off as Zero Tolerance coasted to her third career triumph.  When asked what's down the road for Zero Tolerance, Holloway confirmed her first big start will be The Kentucky Stallion Management at Hoosier Park. From there, she will head to The Red Mile, followed by the Breeders Crown, and then back to The Meadowlands for the Three Diamonds Stakes.   As far as her ceiling goes, Holloway once again is optimistic. "Dave Miller called it early on. He thinks she is as good as Rainbow Room was at this time last year. So far, she hasn't proved that she isn't." by Mike Bozich, for Post TIme with Mike & Mike

WILKES-BARRE PA - It was hoped that the fourth and final preliminary leg of the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotting fillies, held on Monday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, might clear up the picture of the division's pecking order ahead of the September 1 harness racing Championship at The Meadows, but instead the overall view is now as clear as the muddy red clay over which the babies raced. In what sense? Well, the most prelims won by any filly was two. None of the winners on Monday had won before in the Sire Stakes - one had not even raced in them previously, and one had yet to stay flat in the PaSS - and none of Monday's three visitors to Victory Lane are within the top ten in the pointstandings, as a total of 13 fillies posted at least one triumph in the prelims. First to go over the sloppy course Monday was the Donato Hanover filly Jezzy's Legacy, who made her initial appearance on the tote board after a race a 1:57.3 victory. Jezzy's Legacy made the front for driver George Napolitano Jr., then yielded to second choice Hanovers Best to sit in the two-hole as that one and race favorite Sonnet Grace (one of the double winners) hooked up nearing the ¾ and through the turn. Sonnet Grace had been gaining steadily, but nearing the homestretch she suddenly bore about 3¼-wide, and she could not make up the crucial lost ground. That left the race to the pacesetter and the pocketsitter, and Jezzy's Legacy gained into the 28.1 last quarter to win by a length, with Sonnet Grace rallying to be another neck back on the money. Jezzy's Legacy is trained by Ray Schnittker, who is also co-owner with Little E LLC, Steven Arnold, and Hall of Fame ballot nominee Ted Gewertz. The second division saw The Ice Dutchess, in her initial Sire Stakes race, sent off at odds-on despite the outermost post off her win in the Doherty Final, but she made a break vying for the lead nearing the 1/8. 42-1 shot Bushy Tails emerged in front early but readily surrendered the lead to the Muscle Hill filly Swizzle Sticks, who set the pace. In the lane the pocketed longshot made a good charge at the leader, but Swizzle Sticks prevailed by a half-length while taking a maiden mark of 1:57.2. Brian Sears, handling his fourth winner of the night, had the sulky duty for trainer Jim Campbell and owner Jeffrey Snyder. There were a pair of previous PaSS winners in the third division in Magical Beliefs and Antonia, but the role of favorite went to the Muscle Hill filly Beautiful Sin, photoed out in the Doherty, but able to make her Sire Stakes bow successful in the quickest time of 1:56.3, saving the chalk's dignity somewhat in the stakes events. Magical Beliefs had moved early to command, with Beautiful Sin taking the first-over route under the guidance of Yannick Gingras, and the issue was in question until midstretch, where Beautiful Sin still had another gear left and drew away by 3¼ lengths; second choice Antonia fell victim to a break. Beautiful Sin is trained by Jimmy Takter for the S R F Stable. The Harness Bureau of the Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission is the official keeper of PA-sired competition points, but an unofficial tally of the standings after the races yielded these ten as the leading pointwinners: 1. Magical Beliefs, 2. Sonnet Grace, 3. Ma Was Right, 4. Personal Paradise, 5. Rush Lane, 6. (tie) Antonia, Fate Smiled, and Windy Corner, 9. (tie) Daria P and Hanovers Best. There is of course the possibility that one or more of the top horses may not declare in for the Championship, and the horses "on the bubble" do have the prospect of a consolation race at The Meadows if enough fillies declare in. On the night Brian Sears drove five winners and George Nap drove four. Tuesday at Pocono is the last Stallion Series preliminary, to be conducted over seven divisions. And you may think that this Sire Stakes division is hard to sort out ... PHHA / Pocono

YONKERS, NY, Monday, August 13, 2018 - The first-season statebred lasses hit town Monday night (Aug. 13th), plying Yonkers Raceway's $157,000 New York Sire Stakes Pat Quaglietta Trot for harness racing 2-year-old fillies. 'Twas a night for the favorites over the sloppy surface. Perfect plebe Winndevie (Trond Smedshammer, $3.40) made it 5-for-5 in the opening ($52,000) event, putting away leading (:29.1, 1:00.3, 1:30.3) Quincy Blue Chip (Jim Morrill Jr.) late. Winndevie, from post position No. 3, then whipped that rival by a couple of lengths in 1:59. Hanna Dreamgirl (Tim Tetrick) was third. For Winndevie, a daughter of Credit Winner owned by Purple Haze Stable and trained by her driver, she won both of her local tries. The exacta paid $6.30, the triple returned $10.60 and the superfecta (Hot Chapter [Andy Miller]) paid $23.80. "I don't know what else to say? She's 5-for-5," Smedshammer said. Indeed. The evening's second ($53,000) division saw Amal Hall (Miller, $2.60)-from post No. 4--settle early, move the lead before the half, then barely hold off With Out a Doubt (Tim Tetrick) by a desperate nose (:28.4, :59.3; 1:28.4, life-best 1:58.4). Thanks for Leaving (catch-driver Jordan Stratton) was a pocket third, with Blue Prayer (Dan Daley) fourth. For Amal Hall, a Credit Winner miss co-owned by her driver, Gty Stable & Dumain Haven Farm and trained by Mrs. (Julie) Miller, she won three (with three seconds) in six seasonal starts. The exacta paid $5.80, the triple (three wagering choices in order) returned $10.60 and the superfecta paid $41.80. "She's just a handy, half-mile (track) horse who does her job," Miller the driver said. The final ($52,000) sire stakes division saw the original six-pack pared to a barbershop quartet, as two of the ladies came up ill. Pole-sitting Conway Kellyanne (Charlie Norris, $2.90) had no issues at all (:29.1, 59.1, 1:29.4, 2:00.1). She disposed of a pocket Julamay Mass (Miller) by a length-and-a-half, while an out-the-mile Sweet Chapter (Mark MacDonald) was third. Qiss Me Blue Chip (Scott Zeron) lagged, broke and was a distanced fourth. For Conway Kellyanne, a daughter of Conway Hall (stunner) trained by her driver for co-owners Carrie Norris, Acadia Farms and G&B Racing, she's now won three of her five seasonal efforts. The exacta paid $13, with triple and superfecta wagering cancelled due to the short field. When first/last seen here, Conway Kellyane won at a $40.20 mutuel. "She going to stay with the sire stakes," Charlie Norris said. "She fits in with them." Frank Drucker

WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 13, 2018 -- When trainer Ron Burke confided to longtime owner Mark Weaver at the 2017 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale that De Los Cielos Deo was his top-rated colt in the auction, Weaver thought he had a pretty good idea what was coming. "Usually, we can't afford Ronnie's No. 1 picks," Weaver says. "We were pleasantly surprised to get him, and we're really happy now." Happy, indeed. The son of Captaintreacherous-Lisjune has won all four career starts, and in Tuesday's $188,111 Pennsylvania Sires Stake at The Meadows, he'll be looking to complete a sweep of PASS preliminary legs. He goes from post 4 in race 1 with Yannick Gingras at the helm. De Los Cielos Deo didn't come cheaply, as Weaver and his partners -- Mike Bruscemi (they're Weaver Bruscemi LLC), Burke Racing Stable, Larry Karr and J&T Silva-Purnel & Libby) had to give $140,000 for the colt. "Believe it or not, we were prepared to go to about $300,000," Weaver says. "He's a half to I Luv The Nitelife, a fabulous filly who made close to $2 million, and Ronnie loved him as an individual. Anytime you can get one with that pedigree, you jump at the chance." De Los Cielos Deo has captured his four starts by a combined 8 lengths; he's won on the front, with quarter-pole moves and by stalking from the pocket. The only potential rap -- every race has been on a five-eighths-mile track. "I don't think bigger tracks will be a problem," Weaver says, "and I'm not sure he'll have to worry about a half-mile track until the Little Brown Jug." After the Sept. 1 $252,000 PASS championship at The Meadows, De Los Cielos Deo is eligible for the Metro -- "That will be his first test against the rest of the world" -- a pair at the Red Mile and the Breeders Crown. "From the day we bought him, he's probably been the most hyped horse we've had," Weaver says. "It reminds me of the Sweet Lou hype. They don't always come through, but so far, he has." Burke will send out four others in Tuesday's PASS, with Pyro (race 3, post 1, Matt Kakaley) probably the most interesting. When the mares he bred to Sweet Lou produced exclusively fillies, Burke and his partners went looking for a Sweet Lou colt and found him in Pyro, who is out of the Somebeachsomewhere mare Whetstone Hanover. "We bought him for $75,000 as a weanling," Weaver says. "That's a lot more than people thought we should have paid for him." by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

It was a busy week of stakes action at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. There were big-money races held each night, with both two-year-old trotting fillies and three-year-old pacing fillies competing in both Pennsylvania Sire Stakes and Stallion Series action. There were some scintillating performances and some head-scratching winners. And one of those stakes winners also has been doing damage in the overnight races at Pocono, making her the perfect candidate to lead off the Weekly Awards. PACER OF THE WEEK: ATTENTION HANOVER This three-year-old filly has shown a knack for being able to win no matter what the race throws at her. She started her hot streak with a win against non-winners of two at Pocono on July 2 by going gate to wire in a career-best 1:51.2. At Harrah's for her next start, she came on with a first-over victory. On July 22 at Pocono, Attention Hanover passed four horses in the stretch for an upset win at 15-1. Finally, after a near-miss second, she scored at 8-1 with a pocket trip and rally in a condition group on August 5. That meant she rode into Sunday night's $20,000 Stallion Series races for three-year-old pacing fillies with wins in four of her last five races, all coming in unique fashion. As the even-money favorite leaving from post position #4 in a field of seven, she sat the pocket seat once again, this time behind pacesetting Butchie Beach. Driver Eric Carlson then made the crucial decision to tip Attention Hanover to the outside late to follow the cover of the first-over mover Sandy's Beach. That proved to be a stroke of genius, because it gave Attention Hanover the opportunity to rally. Instead of getting blocked behind a faltering horse, the filly was able to spin off the cover and overtake Sandy's Beach for a victory by 1 ½ lengths in 1:51.2, which was the fastest of the three Stallion Series splits that night. Her win gives Attention Hanover victories in five of her last six starts, each one of them unique unto itself but still building toward her overall excellent record. Other top pacers this week include: Hallie's Comet (Pal LaChance driver and trainer), who rallied from off the pace for a second consecutive condition win on Sunday night, this one coming in 1:51.3; Sea's Ideal (George Napolitano Jr., Hunter Oakes), who churned through sloppy conditions on Monday night to pick up her second straight claiming victory in a career-best 1:51.4; and Rock Absorber (George Napolitano Jr., Brandon Todd), whose victory in a condition pace on Saturday night in 1:50.2 not only matched a career mark but also was the fastest pacing time of the week at Pocono. TROTTER OF THE WEEK: ABC MUSCLES BOY One of the reasons that Rene Allard has been the top trainer for several years running at Pocono is because his horses never stay down for too long. They may suffer slumps at some point during the meet, but they generally rally from those slumps, right the ship and come back hotter than ever. Case in point: ABC Muscles Boy. The seven-year-old gelding had always been a solid performer in the past, but he started his 2018 season off with five straight finishes out of the money. On August 6, he was dropped into our lowest condition group. Needing the boost of confidence that comes with victory, ABC Muscles Boy responded with a solid win, handling the field by eight lengths in a sharp time of 1:54.3. Riding high once again, he moved up into the $11,000 condition trotting group on Monday night. Recognizing his potential, the bettors made him a 3-5 favorite even with the move up in class. Leaving from post position #6 in a field of eight, ABC Muscles Boy was sent right to the front end by driver Brian Sears. Even in a torrential downpour and extremely sloppy conditions, he held the lead with little concern. By the time the stretch rolled around, he was once again well ahead of his competition, coasting home for the victory in 1:55.2. It looks like we have another Allard trainee moving back up the ladder, his slump long since a thing of the past. Honorable mention on the trotting side goes to: I'm Your Captain (Andy Miller, Julie Miller), who followed up back-to-back wins at Harrah's with a condition win at Pocono on Sunday night in a career-best 1:53.4; Silvermass Volo (Eric Carlson, Michael Holcman), who tore it up for a condition win on Sunday night in 1:53.1, matching the fastest trotting time of the week at Pocono; and Beautiful Sin (Yannick Gingras, Jimmy Takter), whose winning time of 1:56.3 was the fastest of three divisions of Pennsylvania Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotting fillies held on Monday night in the slop. LONG SHOT OF THE WEEK: RIPROY There were a bunch of long shots that scored on Saturday night, but this pacer driven by Tom Jackson topped them all, winning a claiming handicap at 55-1 and paying off $117 on a $2 win ticket. (Correction from last week: In last week's column, I misidentified the Long Shot of the Week. The honor should have gone to Mandela Blue Chip. My apologies for the mistake.) DRIVER OF THE WEEK: BRIAN SEARS Sears makes occasional appearances at Pocono on stakes nights, and he made the most of a visit on Monday, scoring five victories, including a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes win with Swizzle Sticks. TRAINER OF THE WEEK: JIM CAMPBELL Campbell won a Sire Stakes on Saturday night with three-year-old pacing filly Alexa's Power, and then scored another on Monday night with two-year-old trotting filly Swizzle Sticks. That will do it for this week at Pocono, but we'll see you at the track. Feel free to e-mail me at jbeviglia@mohegansunpocono.com. by Jim Beviglia, for Pocono Down
WILKES-BARRE, PA - Southwind Storm thundered through her Pennsylvania Stallion Series' four preliminary legs undefeated, as the Muscle Hill - Say What filly completed the quarter by winning one of the seven two-year-old trotting filly divisions over "sloppy" going Tuesday at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono. Pat Berry hustled the Ron Burke trainee to an open length margin during a 27.2 opening quarter and set sail on the lead, and the winner maintained her advantage all the way to the wire, although Southwind Percy charged at her during the last quarter and fell short by only a nose at the end of the 1:58.4 mile. Southwind Storm is owned by Burke Racing Stable LLC, Lawrence Karr, J&T Silva- Purnel & Libby, and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Two fillies became two-time StS prelim winners while triumphing. First in that twosome was the Possess The Will - Raising Rachel miss Fashion Rachel, who built up a huge lead then coasted home to be 2½ lengths clear at the wire in 1:58 to equal her mark and post the fastest divisional clocking. Her connections - driver Mike Simons, trainer Jim Campbell, and the Fashion Farms LLC of newly-installed Hall of Famer Jules Siegel -- had a double on the night, as the Muscle Hill - I'm On Cloud Nine filly Cloud Nine Fashion remained undefeated in three purse starts by making her first Stallion Series effort a winning one in 1:58.4, making a giant recovery from an early miscue to catch When Dovescry by a nose. The other series doubler also topped a two-win night for the Team Orange Crush of trainer/wife Julie and driver/husband Andy Miller: Cardinale, who lowered her mark to 1:58.4. The Cantab Hall - Mississippi Beauty filly gained command before the quarter and went on to defeat Navarone Hanover, the only other miss with two StS prelim triumphs in to go Tuesday (Fast Reaction sat out the final prelim), by 1¼ lengths for the Andy Miller Stable Inc., Willow Oak Ranch, and Odonnell Equine LLC. By the way, Cardinale was the second choice and the only non-chalk to win in the seven races - those who say "two-year-old trotting fillies" with a sneer can stand in the corner, reading the program from this night. The Millers' other winner was PA stakes debutante American Kronos, a Donato Hanover - Glide About filly who brushed to the lead by going her own third quarter in 28.2, finishing out in 1:58.3 to tie her race mark and remained undefeated in two purse contests for Marvin Katz, Al Libfeld, and D. David Goodrow. The other two stakes siring credits went to Cantab Hall, giving him three on the night. One was Fraulein Blucher, whose dam was Frau Blucher, one of only two horses to win $500,000 strictly in PA Sire Stakes competition (the other was Wild Honey). Fraulein Bucker scored her first purse triumph in 1:59.1, a half-length ahead of Paint The Corners for driver Anthony Napolitano, trainer Nancy Johansson, and the ownership of Hauser Brothers Racing Enterprises LLC and the Rojan Stables. Biggest margin of victory was the 3¼ lengths Mimi'spearloflindy had on her competition at the end of her maiden victory in 1:59.1. Brian Sears was in the sulky behind the Cantab Hall - Lindy's Showgirl distaff for trainer Marcus Melander and Holly Lane Stud East LLC. The Harness Bureau of the Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission is the official keeper of PA-sired competition points, but an unofficial tally of the standings after the races yielded these ten as the leading pointwinners: 1. Southwind Storm, 2. Navarone Hanover, 3. Fast Reaction, 4. Paint The Corners, 5. (tie) Chanel De Vie and Southwind Percy, 7. Wildfire Seeslter, 8. (tie) Cardinale and Fashion Rachel, 10. (tie) I'mallthatmatters and Lollipop Lindy. There is of course the possibility that one or more of the top horses may not declare in for the Championship, and the horses "on the bubble" do have the prospect of a consolation race at Harrah's Philadelphia on Labor Day if enough fillies declare in.

WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 14, 2018 -- While horses usually don't bet, in Tuesday's $188,111 Pennsylvania Sires Stake at The Meadows, De Los Cielos Deo hit a rare trifecta: he extended his career unbeaten streak to five; he completed a sweep of the four PASS preliminary legs; he vaulted over $100,000 in earnings. The event for freshman colt and gelding pacers, known as the Tyler B, was contested over three divisions, with Crimson And Chrome and Captain Victorious taking the other splits. De Los Cielos Deo quarter-poled to the front for Yannick Gingras and cruised home in 1:52, 1-1/2 lengths better than the first-over Proof. Ehrmantraut earned show. The victory continued the PASS domination of De Los Cielos Deo, who captured his four wins by a combined 9 lengths. Ron Burke, who trains the son of Captaintreacherous-Lisjune -- a $140,000 yearling purchase for Burke Racing Stable, Larry Karr, J&T Silva-Purnel& Libby and Weaver Bruscemi LLC -- said he would train the colt up to the $252,000 PASS championship (Sept. 1 at The Meadows) rather than seek a prep race. "I don't worry about getting starts for these kinds of colts," Burke said. "I'd rather save starts than get starts. Bad horses need races. Good horses will train themselves up. It took me forever to learn that. "He has top-range potential. For as long as we've been training him down, I've said this is easily the best colt we've had since Sweet Lou. Before the year's over, I think he'll do something special." Victorious in his only previous PASS start, Crimson And Chrome made it two straight by erasing a 3-length deficit in the lane for Tim Tetrick and downing Semi Tough by 1/2 length in 1:51.3. Air Force Hanover completed the ticket. "He kind of struggled early," said winning trainer Jim King, Jr. "He had lots of determination, lots of good things to like about him, but it didn't come that easy to him. So we just took our time with him. We were mostly concerned with making him a good 3-year-old. We're underway for that; it's a good start." Tim Tetrick LLC owns the Sweet Lou-McSauna gelding, who's eligible for the Liberty Bell, the Simpson and the Keystone Classic at The Meadows. Captain Victorious found himself in an unfamiliar first-over chase but made the most of it for David Miller, holding off Sugar Factory by a neck in a stake-fastest 1:51.2. Cruise Captain was third. "It wasn't the trip I wanted to give him," Miller said. "He got a little rough when the gate folded, and that cost him getting away. He went a big trip first over. He was pretty game." Julie Miller conditions the son of Captain Treacherous-Belclare for Andy Miller Stable, Jean Goehlen and Caroll Huffman. In the $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot, Call For Justice shot the Lightning Lane and made it two straight with a 1:53.4 score for Dave Palone, Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi. The 6-year-old son of Justice Hall-Mika's Mazurka now boasts $526,067 in career earnings. Stake racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday, when the card features an $80,000 PA Stallion Series stake for 2-year-old filly pacers. First post is 1:05 PM. by Evan Pattak, for The Meadows
Plainville, MA --- With 16 of the best pacing mares currently racing in Massachusetts gathered in two divisions of Winners-Over $10,000 lifetime events that highlighted the Tuesday afternoon (Aug. 14) card at Plainridge Park with both winners claiming victory via lifetime best efforts. In the first $16,000 division, Empty Gesture (Chris Long) defied her 10-1 odds and went right to the front to cut quarters of :26.1, :54.2 and 1:22.3, parking out Acefortyfour Alex (Mitchell Cushing) and Show Runner (Greg Merton) and then holding off Western Stepp (Nick Graffam) at the wire to win by a neck in 1:52.2, which was a new lifetime mark. It was the seventh win of the year for Empty Gesture ($22.40) and second for owner/trainer Jennifer Allen who claimed the mare for $12,000 back on July 3. The second $14,000 distaff pacing feature was won by Iced Out (Mitchell Cushing) who took a similar path to victory; on the front end cutting fractions of :26.4, :56 and 1:23.3 before rebuffing mild bids from Iheartquestionmark (Eric Davis) and Cameo Delight (Mike Stevenson) to pull away to a two length win in 1:52.3. That time was also a new lifetime mark for the winner. Iced Out ($6.80) scored her first win since the second week of June for owner Little Bapa and her trainer Eric Beach. Beach had the hot hand in the training department on Tuesday, sending four of his students to get their pictures taken. Besides the already mentioned Iced Out, Beach also conditioned Dakota Sleek (1:54, $22.60), Bestfriendforever (1:54.3, $4.60) and Spilling The Beans (1:55.1, $2.60) to victory. Greg Merton led all drivers on Tuesday with three wins. Racing resumes at Plainridge Park on Thursday (Aug. 16) with post time at 4 p.m. by Tim Bojarski, for the Standardbred Owners of Massachusetts
