HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Fireyourguns may have misfired in his seasonal debut last week but he was fully loaded on Saturday night (May 19) by wiring the field in Buffalo Raceway's $11,500 Open Pace in 1:52.1 over the fast harness racing track. It was just a fifth of a second off the all-time track mark of 1:52.0 set ironically by Fireyourguns in 2015.   In the co-featured $11,500 Open Trot, Empire Earl N ended a modest two-race winless streak by going coast to coast to beat a pesky Fox Valley Veto by a neck in 1:58.1, equalling his seasonal best.   Last week, Fireyourguns had a front end journey but stalled out in the stretch and finished sixth in 1:53.3. But that effort proved to be a perfect tightener.   Starting from the three post, driver Mike Caprio guided Fireyourguns ($3.00) to the lead and put up fractions of :27.3, :56.0 and 1:24.1.   In the stretch, Fireyourguns had threats coming from everywhere. Western Conquest (Ray Fisher Jr.) and Bugatti (Billy Davis Jr.) each were making charges late but had to settle for second and third respectively as Fireyourguns held on for the half length victory.   Co-owned by trainer Terence McClory along with Jennifer and Robert Lowe, the victory by the 9-year-old gelded Fireyourguns (American Ideal-Villa Hanover) moved his lifetime earnings to $401,966.   Empire Earl N (Drew Monti) raced off the starting gate to get the early advantage, putting up a rather pedestrian :30.0 opening panel. With middle times of :59.4 and 1:29.1 splits, Empire Earl N ($6.80) had just enough left in the stretch to fend hold off Fox Valley Veto (Davis Jr.) and BZ Glide (Caprio).   The win was the fourth in 12 tries this year for Empire Earl N (Earl-Santa Nita). The 10-year-old gelding is owned by Kimberly Asher and trained by Riley Asher-Stalbaum. The victory upped to seasonal winnings to $26,013 and $187,873.   Shawn Gray, Monti and Fisher Jr. each had driving triples. Trainer James Clouser Jr. conditioned a trio of winners.   Racing will resume on Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. with a 12-race program scheduled.   For more information including the latest news, simulcast schedule, upcoming promotions, race replays, results and entries, go to www.buffaloraceway.com   by Brian J.

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- On paper in Buffalo Raceway's featured $9,500 Open II Pace for the harness racing fillies and mares on Wednesday night (May 16), it appeared that it was going to be a battle to see if anyone could knock off the front running Sgt Molly Pitcher. Hey Kobe showed she was up to the challenge.   After stalking the slightly favored Sgt Molly Pitcher for more than three quarters of a mile, the second choice in the wagering Hey Kobe (Drew Monti) used the 'lightning lane' to nudge past the pace setter by a neck in a seasonal best 1:55.2 over the fast track.   Sgt Molly Pitcher (Jim Morrill Jr.) was in charge early with fractions of :28.1, :57.3 and 1:27.0. But turning for home it appeared the major danger to her was going to come from the first-over Rock My World (John Cummings Jr.). That threat never materialized but Hey Kobe was ready to take her turn.   Midway down the lane, Hey Kobe ($4.00) snuck up the passing lane and eventually got past Sgt Molly Pitcher just before the wire. Double Down Jo (Kevin Cummings) rallied late for third.   Owned by Keith Pinkowski and trained by Mihajlo Zdjelar Jr., it was the fourth victory in 17 attempts this season for the 6-year-old mare Hey Kobe (Bettor's Delight-American West). The victory pushed her seasonal bankroll to $26,681 and $286,730 lifetime.   The amazing Quicksilvercandy A, a 14-year mare that produced 22 wins in 47 starts last season, continued to make her final year of racing a memorable one as she notched her 11th win in just 14 tries on the campaign with a 1-1/2 length decision over Tymal Luckynpink in 1:57.1.   Owned and trained by Riley Asher-Stalbaum, Quicksilvercandy A (Bad Bert-Forzett) has won four straight races now, putting $36,875 in the bank in 2018 and $717,103 in her career.   Ray Fisher Jr. completed the night with four victories in the bike while Kevin Cummings tripled.   Racing will resume on Saturday night with a 13-race card scheduled for a special 7 p.m. post to accommodate the running of the Preakness Stakes.   For more information including the latest news, upcoming promotions, simulcast schedule, race replays, results and entries, go to www.buffaloraceway.com   by Brian J.

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- The betting favorites couldn't find the winner's circle in Buffalo Raceway's co-featured $10,400 Open Pace and Trot events on Saturday night (May 12) so it was time for others to steal the harness racing spotlight.   Focus Power ($8.40) used a 1:53.1 mile to notch the neck win over Linkjack Hanover in the Open Pace while Southern Palms ($9.90) wore down a stubborn Trooper Jim to take the Open Trot by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:58.0.   It was quite a night for driver Shawn Gray as he had six victories on the 13-race program. It was also a good evening for the tandem of driver Ray Fisher Jr. and trainer Ryan Swift as they teamed up to capture four races. Fisher Jr. completed the night with five wins.   In the Open Pace, Fireyourguns (Mike Caprio), starting in his first race of the season, zoomed to the lead off the starting gate and posted some snappy fractions of :27.3, :56.2 and 1:24.4. Those grueling split suited Focus Power just fine.   Sitting in the third spot with a quarter mile to pace, Focus Power (Drew Monti) popped out around the final turn. The pace-setting Fireyourguns (Mike Caprio) found the fractions too much called it a night, eventually settling for sixth.   Both Linkjack Hanover (Fisher Jr.) and Upfront Countryboy (Shawn Gray) made stout attempts to catch Focus Power in the stretch but finished second and third respectively. The 1:53.1 mile by Focus Power was the quickest of the season.   Owned by James Caradori and trained by Darrin Monti, it was the second win in five tries this season for the 6-year-old gelded Focus Power (Shadow Play-Luv's For Ever). He has a bankroll of $13,936 in 2018 and $174,903 lifetime.   It was a battle on the front end in the Open Trot as Trooper Jim was parked by Edom Up Blue Boy for over three quarters of a mile. With the final panel to trot, Edom Up Blue Boy surrendered but Trooper Jim still stood tall.   While it was an extremely gutsy performance by Trooper Jim, it just wasn't enough. Southern Palms (Kevin Cummings) had the shorter journey and it paid off in the victory in 1:58.0 over the fast track. Trooper Jim (Monti) was second and SR Radar (Shawn Gray) took third.   Trained by Gerry Sarama and owned by Mike Torcello, Southern Palms (RC Royalty-Pacific Elegance) is a 5-year-old gelding who has third victories in nine tries this season. He has won $19,476 on the campaign and $213,591 in his career.   Trainer James Clouser Jr. had three winners on the night.   Racing will continue on Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. with a 12-race program scheduled. There's a $770 carryover in the Pick-5 which begins in the second race.   For more information including the latest news, simulcast schedule, upcoming promotions, race replays, results and entries, go to www.buffaloraceway.com   by Brian J.

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Validus Deo let Sgt Molly Pitcher do the heavy lifting in Buffalo Raceway's harness racing featured $8,400 pace on Wednesday night (May 9) but when it counted the most, Validus Deo proved to be the strongest in the end.   Following the pace-setting Sgt Molly Pitcher, Validus Deo (Kevin Cummings) popped the pocket in the lane and took a 3/4-length decision in 1:55.0 over the fast track to pull off the $16.00 surprise.   Sgt Molly Pitcher (Jim Morrill Jr.) had things her own way through fractions of :28.4, :57.4 and 1:27.0. Validus Deo, the lone male in the race, was anxious to make a move around the final turn and couldn't wait any longer.   Tipping to the outside, Validus Deo slowly but surely was able to wear down Sgt Molly Pitcher in the lane to score his fourth win in 13 tries in 2018. Rock My World (John Cummings Jr.) used a pylon-skimming trip to take third.   Co-owned by Cummings, Matthew Rosiek and Robert Johnson, the 8-year-old gelding (Lis Mara-Madam Countess) has now put $17,748 in the bank this season and $523,169 lifetime.   Ray Fisher Jr. completed the evening with a driving triple while Billy Davis Jr. and Cummings doubled.   Racing will return on Saturday night at 6 p.m. with a 13-race scheduled.   For more information including the latest news, simulcast schedule, upcoming promotions, race replays, results and entries, go to www.buffaloraceway.com   by Brian J.

He easily beat Noble Legend by 2-1/4 lengths.   Starting from the three post, Southern Palms trotted smartly to the lead and notched fractions of :29.0, :58.4 and 1:27.4.

The win moved his 2018 bankroll to $14,278 and $208,379 in his career.   In the co-featured $9,600 pace, Upfront Countryboy went off as the 1-to-9 favorite and it was a drama-free journey in the 5-3/4 length romp over six other rivals.   Scoring from the rail, driver Shawn Gray put Upfront Countryboy ($2.30) right to lead and never looked back. After registering splits of :28.2, :57.3 and 1:26.2, he finished the mile in a throttled down 1:54.1 over the fast track.   The best battle of the race was for the minor spoils as China Dream (Davis Jr.) nabbed second place over Linkjack Hanover (JD Perrin).   Owned by William Emmons and trained by James Clouser Jr., it was the sixth win in 10 appearances for Upfront Countryboy (Dragon Again-Cambloid). The 9-year-old gelding has earned $22,157 this season and $385,157 in his career.   Cummings and Gray each had triples in the sulky while Monti and Davis Jr. had two victories apiece.

Validus Deo lost any chance by jumping off stride in the passing lane but Hey Kobe (Jim Morrill Jr.) was in hot pursuit on the outside.   Aritzia Hanover managed to cling to the narrow neck victory as Hey Kobe drifted wide in deep stretch to come up just short. Sgt Molly Pitcher (Ron Beback Jr.) took the show position.   Co-owned by the Vogel & Wags Nags Stable and Pine Hill Racing LTD, it was the third win in 10 attempts in 2018 for the 7-year-old mare Aritzia Hanover (Bettor's Delight-Attitude Hanover).
