Down Under harness racing driver wins 4 races at The Meadowlands early in his North American driving career. Todd McCarthy had a night to remember on Saturday night when driving at The Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey. He steered home 4 winners from his full book of 13 drives on the night. McCarthy’s quick success in the states should be no surprise to anyone that has watched him drive in Sydney, Australia, where he was the top driver at Menangle Park for the last five years. His first win of the night came aboard the Katricia Adams trained A Major Omen in 1:52.2. He quickly backed up in the following race with Sombodyitreasure who made a mess of rivals to score in 1:49.4 for trainer Andrew Harris. His next win was with former Down Under pacer Flying Even Bettor N for top trainer Tony Alanga. It was a thrilling finish but the Down Under horse and driver came out best in a time of 1:51.2. This race was also a Down Under quinella with Mister Rebbily A finishing in second for Down Under trainer Tahnee Camilleri. McCarthy’s fourth win was with another Down Under pacer in The Bettormack N. The win made it a double for trainer Katricia Adams. McCarthy giving the son of Bettors Delight a beautiful trip throughout to get over top of leaders in 1:50.0 to win. Todd McCarthy also had three other placings on the night. One where he teamed up with Down Under trainer Shane Tritton and another with Down Under pacer Italian Delight N. When reflecting on the night McCarthy said, “I think for anyone in the harness racing industry, you look at America, The Meadowlands is the pinnacle. To crack one tonight and then to get a few more after that, it was pretty awesome.”. When asked how he would compare the American harness racing to the Australian harness racing he said, “The racing here is definitely faster and a little more aggressive, but so far it's been great and I'm really enjoying it." On the Saturday night of racing at the Meadowlands there were 34 Down Under horses racing.   Monday 7th September   Harrahs Philadelphia PA Quick Fun N – Time: 1:53.3, Stake: $12,000 Atomic Blast N – Time: 1:52.3, Stake: $11,200   Harrington Raceway DE Senor Macray A – Time: 1:53.4, Stake: $9,000   Plainridge Park MA Peternity Suit A – Time: 1:50.3, Stake: $15,000   Saratoga Harness NY Lord Willoughby A – Time: 1:53.1, Stake: $4,800   The Meadows PA Blow A Cloud N – Time: 1:53.0, Stake: $5,400   Woodbine Mohawk Park CA Never Mind N – Time: 1:54.1, Stake: $20,000   Tuesday 8th September     Harrington Raceway DE Betterthanamisus N – Time: 1:55.3, Stake: $10,000 Anytime N – Time: 1:52.4, Stake: $13,500 Women In Gold N – Time: 1:57.2, Stake: $10,000   Running Aces Casino & Racetrack MN Quite A Delight N – Time: 1:54.4, Stake: $3,700   Yonkers Raceway NY Kimani N – Time: 1:53.2, Stake: $8,500   Wednesday 9th September     Batavia Downs NY Blacknsweet Adda A – Time: 1:55.1, Stake: $6,000   Harrahs Philadelphia PA She’s Nun Bettor N – Time: 1:52.4, Stake: $12,800 January A – Time: 1:53.3, Stake: $5,600 Shezza Gnp N – Time: 1:52.2, Stake: $6,800   Northfield Park OH Lincs Tiger N – Time: 1:53.2, Stake: $3,400   Ocean Downs MD Our Jerry Lee N – Time: 1:58.3, Stake: $2,600   Yonkers Raceway NY Highview Conall N – Time: 1:54.2, Stake: $8,500 Beltane A – Time: 1:55.1, Stake: $8,500   Waimac Attack N – Time: 1:54.1, Stake: $8,500   Thursday 10th September     Yonkers Raceway NY Miss Irish Rose N – Time: 1:54.0, Stake: $12,500 Soho Leviathan A – Time: 1:54.4, Stake: $12,500 My Ruebe Star N – Time: 1:52.4, Stake: $22,000   Rideau Carleton Raceway CA   Rub Of The Green N – Time: 1:56.1, Stake: $6,000     Friday 11th September       Harrah’s Hoosier Park IN Never Say Never N – Time: 1:50.1, Stake: $18,000   Meadowlands NJ   Eden Paige N – Time: 1:52.3, Stake: $6,000 Dixie Star N – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $10,000   Scioto Downs OH   Armabluechipboy N – Time: 1:53.4, Stake: $9,000   Grand River Raceway CA   Strong Enough N – Time: 1:57.3, Stake: $6,500   Woodbine Mohawk Park CA Ivana Flybe N – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $24,000     Saturday 12th September       Batavia Downs NY Polak A – Time: 1:55.2, Stake: $7,000 Harry Hoo N – Time: 1:56.0, Stake: $6,500 Mr Euroman N – Time: 1:53.3, Stake: $8,000   Harrah’s Hoosier Park IN   Late Night Date A – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $12,500   Meadowlands NJ   Flying Even Bettor  N – Time: 1:51.2, Stake: $14,000 The Bettormack  N – Time: 1:50.0, Stake: $12,500   Running Aces Casino & Racetrack MN   Hoo Nien A – Time: 1:51.3, Stake: $8,500   Scarborough Downs ME   Midnight Dylan N – Time: 1:56.3, Stake: $4,200   Scioto Downs OH   Our Majordan A – Time: 1:49.3, Stake: $17,500 Stars Align A – Time: 1:48.4, Stake: $20,000 Funatthebeach N – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $9,000   Tioga Downs NY   Bravo Tex N – Time: 1:54.0, Stake: $5,000   Yonkers Raceway NY   Leonidas A – Time: 1:52.3, Stake: $25,000 Down Under Trifecta – 2nd Flamming Flutter N, 3rd Speed Man N   Kawartha Downs CA   Brigadierbronski A – Time: 1:53.0, Stake: $4,900     Sunday 13th September       Harrahs Philadelphia PA Robbie Burns N – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $8,800 Vettel N – Time: 1:51.2, Stake: $10,000   Northfield Park OH   Supreme Mach N – Time: 1:54.1, Stake: $9,500 Flamboro Downs CA Pembrook Legacy N – Time: 1:53.4, Stake: $8,000   Click here for previous weeks articles   by Carter Dalgety

Superstar Down Under Harness racing driver relocates to North America. Australian driver Todd McCarthy has moved himself to the Northern Hemisphere to pursue his driving career. Todd is very familiar with the North American style of racing with brother Andrew McCarthy being permanently based in the states as a driver and other brother Luke McCarthy has had stints in America. Todd was very quick to kick things off and in his first 4 days of driving he has had 13 drives for 3 winners. Two of those winners were aboard former Down Under horses and the third was for Down Under trainer Nifty Norman.  His first win was at Chester aboard Soho Wallstreet A, a Four Starzzz Shark 8yo who won in 1:51.2 in an $8,800 pace for trainer Tom Shay. This race was a Down Under trifecta with Tact Tate N finishing 2nd and Anythingforlove A in 3rd.  His next win came soon after at Pocono with Marloe Hanover a 3yo Captaintreacherous mare, who paced 1:51.1 to win the $35,000 second division of the Pennsylvania All Stars for Down Under trainer Nifty Norman.  He then finished the week strong on Sunday when we won with Down Under mare Its Mesmerise N (American Ideal) in an $11,200 pace at Pocono in 1:52.0 for trainer Darren Cassar. Over the next four days Todd McCarthy is entered for 20 drives. Which looks to be a great way to boost the start of his North American Harness Driving career. He was previously living in Sydney, Australia.    Monday 24th August     Harrington Raceway DE Neon Sky N – Time: 1:55.2, Stake: $5,500   Plainridge Park MA Naughty Maravu N – Time: 1:52.3, Stake: $7,500   Yonkers Raceway NY Alta Leroy N – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $8,500 Globaldomination N – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $14,500 Down Under Trifecta – 2nd The Moonshadow N, 3rd Mister Rebbily A   Tuesday 25th August   Running Aces Casino & Racetrack MN Motu Moonbeam N – Time: 1:53.1, Stake: $9,000   Saratoga Harness NY Nerve Of Steel N – Time: 1:55.4, Stake: $3,500 Franco Tristan N – Time: 1:54.4, Stake: $4,800 Mr Cool Seaeyre N – Time: 1:57.3, Stake: $4,800   The Meadows PA Hedges Avenue A – Time: 1:53.0, Stake: $8,100   Yonkers Raceway NY Dark Energy N – Time: 1:53.3, Stake: $8,500 Soho Lennon A – Time: 1:53.3, Stake: $12,500   Wednesday 26th August   Bangor Raceway ME Millwood Faith N – Time: 1:57.2, Stake: $4,000   Batavia Downs NY Media Queen N – Time: 1:56.3, Stake: $5,000   Harrahs Philadelphia PA Eclipse Me N – Time: 1:52.2, Stake: $11,600 Queen Lostris N – Time: 1:51.2, Stake: $10,000   Saratoga Harness NY Pasultimatedelite N – Time: 1:56.0, Stake: $4,800   Thursday 27th August   Yonkers Raceway NY High Rolling A – Time: 1:55.2, Stake: $8,500   Rideau Carleton Raceway CA Rub Of The Green N – Time: 1:54.4, Stake: $5,500   Friday 28th August   Harrah’s Hoosier Park IN Blazen River N – Time: 1:49.1, Stake: $15,000   Harrahs Philadelphia PA Lifeonthebeach A – Time: 1:50.2, Stake: $10,000 Down Under Trifecta – 2nd Love The Blues N, 3rd Trojan Banner N Soho Wallstreet A – Time: 1:51.2, Stake: $8,800 Down Under Trifecta – 2nd Tact Tate N, 3rd Anythingforlove A Vega Star N – Time: 1:53.1, Stake: $6,800   Scioto Downs OH Rockstar Angel A – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $7,500 Cyclone Kiwi N – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $9,000   Yonkers Raceway NY Flamming Flutter N – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $15,500   Saturday 29th August   Batavia Downs NY Sir Richie N – Time: 1:57.0, Stake: $5,000   Freehold Raceway NJ Fizzing N – Time: 1:53.4, Stake: $12,000   Harrah’s Hoosier Park IN Never Say Never N – Time: 1:50.0, Stake: $14,000   Scioto Downs OH Christen Me N – Time: 1:53.1, Stake: $9,000   Tioga Downs NY Real Lucky N – Time: 1:52.4, Stake: $4,500   Sunday 30th August   Bangor Raceway ME Simply Susational N – Time: 1:56.1, Stake: $5,000   Harrahs Philadelphia PA Dream Out Loud N – Time: 1:53.1, Stake: $8,800 San Domino N – Time: 1:50.3, Stake: $14,400 Itsrockandroll A – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $13,600   Running Aces Casino & Racetrack MN Five Card Draw N – Time: 1:55.0, Stake: $6,400   The Downs At Mohegan Sun Pocono PA Lincolns Girl N – Time: 1:52.2, Stake: $6,800 Anne Bonney N – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $12,000 Down Under First 4 – 2nd Golden Quest N, 3rd Shes Nun Bettor N, 4th Milwood Bonnie N Its Mesmerise N – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $11,200 Flying Even Bettor N – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $12,000   Click here for previous weeks articles   by Carter Dalgety

Nifty Norman and Dexter Dunn got home the quality harness racing square gaiter in Amigo Volo on Sunday at Pocono. The win was in the $95,367 second division of the Pennsylvania Sires Stakes for 3yo Colts and Geldings. The 3yo son of Father Patrick clocked a winning time of 1:52 winning easily. This win adds to the large success this down under duo have had with this horse. Together Norman, Dunn and Amigo Volo previously won the $790,000 2yo Trotting Colts and Geldings Breeders Crown Final at Woodbine Mohawk Park in Canada. Also they won the $181,000 Matron Stakes at Dover Downs in Delaware. On the same day Dexter Dunn was also a part of a new World Record that was set on Sunday at Plainridge Park. Dunn steered home the freakish trotting mare of Manchego to win the $250,000 Spirit of Massachusetts Free for all Trot. Trained by Nancy Takter. The pair clocked a winning time of 1:49.3 around the five-eighths Mile track, which is 1000m. Setting a new world record for aged trotting mares for the distance of the track. This extremely impressive new world record time allowed Manchego to beat her own record which she set in 2019 of 1:50.1. Dunn sent the daughter of Muscle Hill to the lead off the gait, reaching the quarter (400m) in 25.2 and then the half (800m) in a blistering 53.3 seconds. From there they never looked back, extending in the stretch and not allowing competitive rival Atlanta get close who sat on her back throughout. Manchego, Dunn and Takter hold the record for the fastest trotting mare of all time when they won in a time of 1:49 in 2019. On the same card at Plainridge Park, champion Down Under Mare Shartin N returned to winning form. Shartin N (Tintin In America) won comfortably in the $100,000 Clara Barton Distaff Fillies and Mares Free For All Pace. Driven by Tim Tetrick, the mare clocked a winning time of 1:48.1, making it a new Track Record at Plainridge Park. Coming in second place was another Down Under Mare in Soho Burning Love A (Auckland Reactor) , who was driven by Jordan Stratton. The two mares are both trained by Jim King Jr.   Monday 20th July Northfield Park OH Lincs Tiger N – Time: 1:54.3, Stake: $3,200 Supreme Mach N – Time: 1:54.0, Stake: $3,800   Plainridge Park MA Tisadream A – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $9,000   Woodbine Mohawk Park CA Ready To Rumble N – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $14,000   Tuesday 21st July Running Aces Casino & Racetrack MN Five Card Draw N – Time: 1:55.0, Stake: $8,000   Saratoga Harness NY Kiwi Tintin N – Time: 1:56.0, Stake: $2,675 Naughty Maravu N – Time: 1:55.2, Stake: $4,800 Bontz N – Time: 1:55.1, Stake: $8,500 Tuapeka Trick N – Time: 1:54.2, Stake: $4,800 Eden Paige N – Time: 1:55.3, Stake: $4,800   The Downs At Mohegan Sun Pocono PA Vergeofgreatness N – Time: 1:54.1, Stake: $10,400   The Meadows PA The Spinster N – Time: 1:53.4, Stake: $8,400   Yonkers Raceway NY Machiatto A – Time: 1:53.0, Stake: $17,250 Down Under First 5 – 2nd War Dan Delight N, 3rd Speed Man N, 4th Zach Maguire N, Anthem N   Wednesday 22nd July Harrahs Hoosier Park IN Threeofthebest A – Time: 1:50.1, Stake: $10,000   Harrahs Philadelphia PA Shezallapples A – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $10,000 Shes Pukka N – Time: 1:51.1, Stake: $14,400 Eclipse Me N – Time: 1:50.4, Stake: $11,600 Shes Nun Bettor N – Time: 1:52.4, Stake: $11,200   Scioto Downs OH Cyclone Kiwi N – Time: 1:53.0, Stake: $5,500   Thursday 23rd July Ocean Downs MD Our Jerry Lee N – Time: 1:57.3 Stake: $2,600   Plainridge Park MA Paternity Suit A – Time: 1:51.1, Stake: $14,000   Yonkers Raceway NY Rockin The Boys A – Time: 1:53.1, Stake: $17,250   Woodbine Mohawk Park CA Tuapeka Jessie N – Time: 1:52.3, Stake: $16,000     Friday 24th July Harrahs Hoosier Park IN Saloon Passage N – Time: 1:49.2, Stake: $12,500   Harrahs Philadelphia PA Highrthananeagle A – Time: 1:51.0, Stake: $10,000 Laredo Torpedo N – Time: 1:52.4, Stake: $5,600   Meadowlands NJ Dixie Star N – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $7,500   Plainridge Park MA Jewel Lehigh A – Time: 1:54.3, Stake: $6,000   Tioga Downs NY Princess Holly N – Time: 1:54.1, Stake: $4,000 Coveredndiamonds N – Time: 1:54.1, Stake: $4,500   Yonkers Raceway NY Bettor Reason N – Time: 1:53.2, Stake: $9,375 Abraxas Blues A – Time: 1:54.3, Stake: $14,250   Woodbine Mohawk Park CA Ivana Flybye N – Time: 1:49.4, Stake: $20,000 Seaswift Joy N – Time: 1:50.4, Stake: $24,000   Saturday 25th July Harrahs Hoosier Park IN Eyespywithmylileye N – Time: 1:50.3, Stake: $11,000 Prince Mcardle N – Time: 1:50.2, Stake: $8,000   Meadowlands NJ Texican N – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $6,000 Galactic Galleon N – Time: 1:52.2, Stake: $6,750   Northfield Park OH He Can Fly N – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $8,000   Scioto Downs OH Havefaithinme N – Time: 1:50.1, Stake: $18,000 Black Chevron N – Time: 1:50.3, Stake: $12,000   The Downs At Mohegan Sun Pocono PA Amrcanbootscoota A – Time: 1:52.0, Stake: $8,800 Walkinshaw N – Time: 1:51.1, Stake: $11,200 Down Under Trifecta – 2nd Tullow N, 3rd Alotbettor N The Meadows PA San Domino – Time: 1:50.2, Stake: $17,900   Tioga Downs NY Catcha Lefty A – Time: 1:51.4, Stake: $5,200     Sunday 26th July Harrahs Philadelphia PA Persimmon N – Time: 1:50.4, Stake: $10,000 Imarocnrollegend N – Time: 1:50.0, Stake: $11,600   Plainridge Park MA Shartin N – Time: 1:48.1, Stake: $100,000   The Downs At Mohegan Sun Pocono PA Golden Quest N – Time: 1:52.1, Stake: $12,000   Click here for previous weeks articles   Carter Dalgety

Sensation for Down Under harness racing as their pacers get the trifecta in the $172,850 Dorothy Houghton Mares Open. Saturday night at the Meadowlands made history for Down Under harness racing and breeding as we saw Major Occasion A take out the $172,850 Dorothy Houghton Mares Open, with Shartin N and Soho Burning Love A completing the trifecta, making it a trifecta for New Zealand and Australian breeders. Impressive winner, Major Occasion A did it for Down Under trainer Nifty Norman and Down Under driver Dexter Dunn. Major Occasion A and Dexter Dunn trailed the leader throughout the journey and found racing room late to zoom up the inside and win in a blistering mile time of 1:48.1. The daughter of Art Major saluted at odds of 50/1. The successful Down Under trio ran past the Jim King Jr trained pair of champion mare Shartin N who finished 2nd and the in mare in red hot form of Soho Burning Love A who finished 3rd. It was close to the wire but Major Occasion A got the better of a gallant Shartin N who peeling out into the running line from the half mile (800m) to apply pressure to the leader, all while Soho Burning Love A received a lovely drag into the race on Shartins N back, 1 by 1. All mares having every chance.  Dexter Dunn won 3 races on the big night of racing. His first win was with freak trotting mare Manchego who won easily in 1:51.0 in the 3rd leg of the Miss Versality Mares Open for $40,000. Followed by Major Occasion A as mentioned. Then finishing with Franco Totem N who held on to win in a nice 1:50.4, for Down Under Trainer Nifty Norman. Making it a double for him on the night.  Down Under driver Andrew McCarthy also had a very successful night winning 3 races on the card. Starting off with Romona Hill winning the $253,500 Del Miller Memorial for 3yo trotting fillies in 1:50.3. Followed by Reflect With Me in the $194,400 Mistletoe Shalee in 1:49.0 for 3yo pacing fillies. Then Angers Bayama in 1:48.0. All of his winners were trained by Tony Alagna. Also Down Under trainer Tahnee Camilleri recorded a huge win when she trained Dancing Lou to win the $391,300 William R. Haughton Memorial in a sizzling 1:47.2. Overall on the big night of racing at The Meadowlands, Down Under Harness racing’s horses and horse men and women had wins in 8 of the 13 races.  Down Under Pacer so tough in eye opening victory. Our Majordan A proved he is the real deal on Saturday night when he paced a huge winning mile in an absolutely blistering 1:47.3. Driver David Miller looked a passenger out of the starting the gate when the son of Art Major exploded to the lead from the 4 pole to pace an opening quarter in 26.0. He then reached the half mile in 53.2 seconds which had eyes opening. When crossing the line he was described as “Absolutely gigantic” by Meadowlands commentator and he was exactly that by well and truly putting race rivals to the sword.

Talented Down Under harness racing pacer breaks 1:50 at Hoosier Park. Ana Malak N was far too good for rivals on Friday at Harrahs Hoosier Park when winning the $15,000 Open Pace. He clocked a winning mile time of 1:49.4, setting a new lifetime mark for the Bettors Delight stallion. The win took the 6yo to over $300,000 in lifetime earnings. Jeff Cullipher trains and co-owns with Sam Widger who had the reins and extended further and further away from the field to the line. Ana Malak N has always showed plenty of talent in his racing career, most notably when winning back to back Group 1 Races at Gloucester Park in Perth, Australia. Down Under pacer upsets in Open Pace at the Meadowlands on Saturday. The Down Under duo of Bechers Brook A and driver Andrew McCarthy shot up the inside rail late to take out the Open Pace in 1:48.1 on Saturday night. Narrowly getting past the Down Under trio of Jesse Duke N, driver Dexter Dunn and trainer Chris Ryder who finished in second spot. It was a huge four way finish with Bechers Brook A doing the best work late to salute at odds of 50/1. Jeff Cullipher trains and co-owns the 6yo son of Somebeachsomewhere.

Down Under harness racing horses score a first four home in race 13 at The Meadowlands. Saturday night harness racing saw the huge impact of what Down Under racehorses are having on North American tracks in 2020. Saturday nights racing at the Meadowlands saw five races won by former Down Under horses. The highlight being in race 13 which was taken out by The Devils Own N in 1:49. In behind him was Franco Totem N in second, Jacks Shadow N third and Saying Grace N coming in fourth making it a Down Under First four. But that wasn’t the only Down Under factor in the race. The trainers of the first and second finished runners are the New Zealand born, Kelvin Harrison (Big Red) and Nifty Norman. Plus Dexter Dunn driving Franco Totem N showing that Down Under harness racing people are also the real deal. The Devils Own N is continuing on his successful race career (three wins and a second from just the four starts) that was formerly in New Zealand where he was the winner of four races, nine seconds and six thirds for over $240,000 in stake earnings. A highlight was when he set a New Zealand record as a 2yo, running 2.16.3 (1:52.4 Mile rate) over 1950m at Addington Raceway.  The Devils Own N Down Under mare smashes the clock. Soho Burning Love A turned heads on Friday night at The Meadowlands with her blistering mile win. The 6yo daughter of Auckland Reactor paced a winning mile in 1:48.4. This made her the fastest ever mare bred in Australia. Tim Tetrick bought the mare up to the parked position approaching three quarters and then put pay to Apple Bottom Jeans (30 wins & $968,000) to run away with the victory. Jim King Jr trains the mare and this continues the huge success with Down Under mares. He is the trainer of the fastest mare in history Shartin N, and Bettor Joy N just to name a couple. Before heading to North America, Soho Burning Love A had a successful racing career in Australia, winning 13 races for over $250,000 in stake earnings. Most importantly winning at Group 3 level, and placing at Group level on 5 occasions, three in Group 1 races.
