WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 1, 2018 -- It was another harness racing day at the office for Barn Girl, as she rolled to her 11th victory in 15 starts this season in Wednesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Barn Girl has finished first or second in each of those 15 outings. Assigned the outside post position as usual, Barn Girl had little trouble grabbing the point for Aaron Merriman, thwarting the first-over bid of her stablemate, Delcrest Magicstar, and downing the pocket-sitting Cincinnati Miss by 1-3/4 lengths in 1: 54.1. Whambamthankumaam rallied for show. Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who extended her career bankroll to $716,158 and her lifetime winning percentage to 51.5, for Renee Bercury. Merriman collected three wins on the 13-race card while Tyler Stillings fashioned an unusual "double-triple" -- three driving victories, three training victories. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, with a special Hambletonian Day post time of 12 noon. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

WASHINGTON, PA, July 18, 2018 -- Parked past the quarter in 27.2, Barn Girl still was so dominant that she drew off late and notched her fourth win in the last five starts in Wednesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Ready Any Time, who vanquished Barn Girl last week, zipped to the front from post 5, intent on stretching Barn Girl out. But when Aaron Merriman asked the 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie for more, she found it and defeated the rallying Delcrest Magicstar by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:54, giving trainer Bill Bercury and owner Renee Bercury the exacta sweep. Chapter Too finished third. With the victory, Barn Girl vaulted over $700,000 in career earnings. Dave Palone collected five wins on the 14-race card, including a pair for trainer Ron Burke, while Tony Burke enjoyed a triple. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features eliminations for the $450,000 (est) Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids as well as a pair of stakes for freshman colt and gelding pacers. First post is 1:05 PM. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

Seventeen diagonally-gaited sophomores will line up behind the starting gate for these $50,000 events, scheduled as races three and 11. Stallions represented by foals in these two OSS events including Dejarmbro (4 foals); Cash Hall, Manofmanymissions & My MVP (with 3 foals each); Break The Bank K (2 foals); Dontyouforgetit & Stormin Normand (one foal each).

He'll start from post seven for driver Ryan Stahl in the second OSS division (Race 11). This sophomore won Leg 1 at Miami Valley on May 6 in 1:53 and Leg 2 on June 15 at Scioto Downs in a career best 1:52.

The veteran harness racing trotter Cash Me Out (Cash Hall) has been a winning machine throughout what has been an illustrious career. Cash Me Out romped in his return to the track two weeks ago while competing in a condition race and subsequently was back into the $14,500 Open Trot on Sunday afternoon. Leading driver Billy Dobson piloted Cash Me Out and wasted no time cruising the odds-on favorite out to the early lead.  A Saratoga regular throughout his career, Cash Me Out coasted to a wire-to-wire score on Sunday to register his first victory in the Open Trot this season. The win time of 1:55.1 matched the mark he set while prevailing in his previous start. Entranced (Dan Cappello Jr) made his debut in the Open Trot on Sunday and closed sharply up the inside to finish second. Tropical Storm Bi (Phil Fluet), who won the previous installment of the Open at Saratoga, was assigned the outside post this week and still came from the back of the pack to earn the show spot. Cash Me Out was the public's 3-5 betting favorite as he won for the 33rdtime in his career. The veteran trotter now has lifetime earnings of more than $890,000. The exacta and triple in Sunday's Open paid $16.80 and $137.50, respectively. Live racing resumes on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga with a matinee kicking off at 12:15pm. by Mike Sardella, for Saratoga Raceway  

YONKERS, NY, Sunday, July 1, 2018-Smalltownthrowdown (Dan Dube, $7.40) snapped his rivals at the wire Sunday afternoon (July 1st), winning Yonkers Raceway's hot and steamy $44,000 Open Handicap Trot. The weekly trotting feature, commemorating Canada Day in the Lower 48, was not included in the 'French' four-pack which began the card. Rather, the flat-mile festivities saw lass N F Happenstance (Jack Parker Jr.)-assigned outside her half-dozen foes-parked into the second turn and past a :27.1 opening quarter-mile before making the lead. She did rate a :30.1 next substation (:57.2 intermission) as her sister in arms, Weslynn Dancer (Jason Bartlett), moved first-up from fourth. That towed Smalltownthrowdown, unhurried from post position No. 6, within striking distance. N F Happenstance, though, led in and out a 1:26 three-quarters, with a length-and-a-half advantage off the final turn. The leading lady hung tough, but could not stall Smalltownthrowdown. That one edged past late, winning by a neck in 1:55...his fastest purse win time of the season. N F Happenstance held second, with 13-10 favorite DW"S NY Yank (George Brennan) relegated to a pocket third. Weslynn Dancer and Bluebird Jesse (Brent Holland) came away with the minors. For second choice 'Smalltown,' a 5-year-old Cash Hall gelding co-owned (as Allard Racing) by (trainer) Rene Allard, Yves Sarazin, VIP Internet Stable and Bruce Soulsby, it was his third win in eight seasonal starts (20th career victory). The exacta paid $50.50, the triple returned $163 and the superfecta paid $593. Special props to Brennan for a 10-win weekend (four Friday, five Saturday, one Sunday afternoon) over a 30-race span. Sunday's scheduled rendition of the 'New York, New York Double' was cancelled after Belmont Park deferred to the heat and scrapped its card. The next Sunday matinee is July 15st (post time TBA). by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

MILTON, ON - June 21, 2018 - The future officially arrived Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park, as a pair of two-year-old races were contested. A field of seven rookie trotters met in the evening's second-race, while 10 freshmen pacers clashed in the seventh-race. Each race went for a purse of $14,000. Track Announcer Ken Middleton won't forget the first two-year-old pace of the season, as his student Shadowofthenorth was victorious in 1:56.2. The Shadow Play colt rushed to the lead from third in the second-quarter and after reaching three-quarters in 1:28.4, paced home in :27.3 to fight off rivals for a half-length score. Middleton, who is regarded as one of the top announcers in the sport, was sending out his first starter as a trainer on Thursday and kicked off his training career in style. An $18,000 London Yearling Sale purchase, Shadowofthenorth is owned by Middleton, Jeffrey Seibel and Michael Schaffer. See You In Tuscany (We Will See) finished second, while Do Ya Think (Ponder) was third. A $2 win ticket on Shadowofthenorth paid $13. Hall of Fame trainer Bob McIntosh is certainly no stranger to success with young horses, but the betting public overlooked his trainee Only Take Cash in the two-year-old trotting event. A daughter of Cash Hall, Only Take Cash came first-up on the far turn and kept on trotting all the way to a 27-1 upset with driver Bob McClure in the bike. Royaltys Pearl (Royalty For Life), who cut an opening-quarter of :29.1, was slowing things down in the second-quarter when Westfiftysecond (My Mvp) made a backstretch rush from fifth to lead at the half in 1:00.1. Only Take Cash got away third and was sitting fourth entering the far turn. The McIntosh trainee was brought to the outside and moved first-up to within two-lengths of leader Westfiftysecond, who reached the third marker in 1:30.4. In the stretch, Only Take Cash marched right on by the fading leader and trotted home impressively in :27.4 to win by two-lengths in 1:59. Judge Ken (Justice Hall) followed the winner on the far turn to a runner-up finish, while Jumpshot (E L Titan) tracked third-over and trotted into a third-place finish. Only Take Cash is a homebred for Robert McIntosh Stables Inc, C S X Stables and Dave Boyle. She is the fifth foal from Armbro Affair, who made over $450,000 in 30 starts from 2003 to 2005. A $2 win ticket on Only Take Cash paid $56.80. Live racing continues Friday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Post time is 7:30 p.m. by Mark McKelvie, for Woodbine Communications

WASHINGTON, PA, June 13, 2018 -- Barn Girl thwarted the late challenge of Ready Any Time and went on to capture Wednesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Trot at The Meadows, her eighth win in 11 starts this year and the 50th victory of her career. Barn Girl endured a demanding opening quarter -- three wide in 27.1 -- before reaching the front, a trip that could have made her vulnerable. But in characteristic fashion, she dug in for Aaron Merriman when Ready Any Time loomed boldly and defeated her by 3/4 lengths in 1:54. The pocket-sitting Expose Yourself finished third. Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $683,668, for Renee Bercury. It was one four wins on the 13-race program for Merriman. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features a pair of rich total-pool guarantees -- $12,500 for the Pick 4, $5,000 for the Pick 5 -- as well as a $2,404.55 carryover in the day's first Superfecta and a $2,517/70 jackpot in the final-race Super High 5. First post is 1:05 PM. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

Pompano Beach, FL...February 14, 2018...Sooo Handsome, who earned a world record mark of 1:09.3 for five-eighths of a mile on a similar sized track just a week ago at Pompano Park, smashed that mark on Tuesday night by sizzling that same distance in 1:09 for harness racing trainer-driver Rick Plano. The homebred five year-old gelded son of Cash Hall used his rail post position to perfection, out-dueling the anxious opposition early and sprinting through fractions of :27.2 and :55.2 before tacking on a 13.3 final eighth to hit the wire 5 1/4 lengths to the good over William Star, handled by Wally Hennessey, finished second while Legend Field, teamed up with Corey Braden, next. Love Hunter and Overnight Shipper completed the order of finish in this quintet. In reflecting on his second world record performance in just seven days, Plano said, "He did it very easily tonight. You know, he's a very good gaited horse and he's very handy, so all I did was ask him for a bit early and he gave it to me. He was on cruise control the whole way. "He's very fond of Florida and loves this weather. It's especially gratifying because he's a homebred and we have had him since day one." In response to whether a short distance event makes training for a longer event more difficult, Plano responded, "I usually train him a mile-and-a-half and then a mile-and-a-quarter, so I really don't think it will bother him. We'll see how he does against the Open horses where he's been competitive over the last several starts." Now showing a 3-2-0 scorecard in five starts this year, Sooo Handsome has banked $19,000 this semester and $112,340 lifetime in 73 starts to go along with his 1:54.1 mark at Pompano Park set as a three year-old. Off as the 1 to 10 favorite, Sooo Handsome paid $2.20 to win. Racing continues on Wednesday night duet of $11,000 Open Handicap trotting events highlighting the competitive card. Prairie Fortune makes a return following a brief respite from the racing wars and will have Born To Thrive, Zoraze, Uncle Hanover and Foundonabeach as his rivals while A TC Queenie looks for a repeat in the companion event for mares. The Super Hi-5 finale has ballooned to $193,652 for the Wednesday card with post time set at 7:20 p.m. by John Berry for Pompano Park  

Cartier Volo (Cash Hall) completed a double for her connections on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel as the three year old filly prevailed in the harness racing matinee's co-feature. Frank Coppola Jr. piloted Cartier Volo to her fifth win of the season for trainer Dave Spagnola and owner Mike Polansky while competing in the $11,250 feature for New York sired trotters. The sophomore moved out to the early lead and after getting past by a first-over rival, rallied back on the inside and wound up proving best in the co-feature, stopping the timer in 1:59. Coppola and Spagnola also teamed up for a Thursday score with Polansky's Yamaka (American Ideal) who came from off the pace to prevail in 1:57.3. Explosive (Chapter Seven) scored in the other co-feature, overcoming post position eight to win in 2:01 with Mark Beckwith piloting for trainer Brian Walker. Live racing continues on Friday night at Saratoga with a 6:45pm first post. Mike Sardella

WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 7, 2017 -- Barn Girl zipped to the front for Aaron Merriman and had little trouble with the harness racing field or sloppy surface from there, powering to her 13th victory this year in Tuesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Ahead by a length at the three-quarters, Barn Girl poured it on late and defeated Bags For All by 3 lengths in 1:55.1, with the pocket-sitting Glidinthruparadise third. Bill Bercury trains the 5-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie, who triumphed for the 24th time over the past two seasons and extended her career bankroll to $546,968, for Renee Bercury. Dave Palone collected four wins -- including three for trainer Ron Burke -- while Brady Brown enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 17, 2017 -- Dreamsteeler exploded from the pocket at the top of the lane and got by a determined RV Janet to capture Tuesday's $13,000 conditioned trot at The Meadows at a healthy 21-1. RV Janet was so resolute on the front that no effective outside flow could form. But she couldn't shake Dreamsteeler, who responded to the urging of trainer/driver Tyler Stillings and edged RV Janet by a neck in 1:55.2. Fancytucky and Glidinthruparadise dead-heated for show. Rags To Riches Of PA campaigns Dreamsteeler, a 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Dream Street who now boasts $269,308 in career earnings. Aaron Merriman and Jim Pantaleano each piloted three winners on the 13-race card.

Last week's Open Trot at Saratoga Casino Hotel saw harness racing rivals Cash Me Out (Cash Hall) and Up The Alley (Muscle Mass) hit the line at the same time. It was the first dead-heat in an Open thus far in 2017 at the Spa. In Tuesday's installment of the $18,000 Open, Cash Me Out and Up The Alley got away last and second to last as a speed duel ensued. After fractions of 27.3 and 55.2 were put up in the first half, Cash Me Out and Up The Alley made their moves. The Kyle Spagnola-trained Cash Me Out powered up first over and took over the lead with relative ease. Up The Alley followed that one's cover and as the front-runner tired, that tandem drew off from the field. Cash Me Out, who was driven by Billy Dobson, opened up a big lead around the final turn and wound up stopping the timer in 1:54 for his second consecutive score in the feature. Up The Alley (Dan Cappello Jr) came up second best and has now finished first or second in four consecutive tries in the Open. Longshot Tober (Brian Cross), who finished third behind the top tandem last week, did so once again on Tuesday night. Cash Me Out returned $6.50 to win in what was his sixth victory of the season. The exacta and triple came back $66 and $480.50, respectively. Cash Me Out is owned by the Traylor Racing Stable, LLC of Ballston Spa, NY. Their stable scored a pair of victories on the night as trotter Cash Poor (Jimmy Devaux) prevailed in the race following the Open on the Tuesday card. Live racing continues on Wednesday night at Saratoga with a fifteen race card featuring NY Sire Stakes for three year old colt and gelding trotters. First post time is set for 7:05pm. Mike Sardella

WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 29, 2017 -- It took her three tries, but Barn Girl finally wore down a determined Goodtogo Hanover and captured Tuesday's $20,000 harness racing filly & mare  $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. The two mares dueled for the early lead, and when Goodtogo Hanover and Brian Zendt refused to release Barn Girl, Aaron Merriman settled her into the two hole. She pulled the pocket and attacked once again down the backside but still could not clear. Finally, when it looked as though Goodtogo Hanover might pull off the upset, Barn Girl gathered her talent and resolve in the stretch and downed her stubborn rival by a head in 1:55. Classical Annie was third. Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 5-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who won for the 22nd time over the past two seasons and extended her career bankroll to $511,108, for Renee Bercury. Mike Wilder piloted four winners while Tony Hall and Merriman each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card. Because Wednesday's card at The Meadows is the final program of the Mountain Laurel meeting, no pool can be carried over. Therefore, the Pick 4, Pick 5 and final superfecta all are "must pay." First post is 1:05 PM. The Meadows Racetrack & Casino

Harness racing trainer Roger Hughes Jr. has been waiting a lifetime for Sultan Of Cash, and the 2-year-old trotting colt is delivering for Hughes and his family in a big way.   The son of Cash Hall trotted to a lifetime best 1:57.1 en route to winning his $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes-Leg 2 test handily on a blisteringly-hot and steamy Tuesday (July 18) at Scioto Downs. It was one of a quartet of Ohio Sires Stakes (OSS) for freshman trotting colts held that afternoon.   It was the fourth consecutive victory for Sultan Of Cash in as many lifetime starts, and pushed his career earnings to $43,615. Driver Ronnie Wrenn, Jr., was in the sulky behind the youngster, whom Hughes says has been perfect in every way.   "My grandfather had horses and that's how I got into the business," said Hughes, Jr., who works full time as a manager for an automotive manufacturing company, and trains at the Wilmington, Ohio county fairgrounds in his spare time. "I bought this colt last year at November Blooded Horse Sale after his pedigree caught my eye. I wasn't actually even at the sale; I was at work, but I called a buddy and said if this colt is available, I want him. I really didn't think I'd be able to touch him, but I got very lucky."   When the gavel fell for the last time, Hughes, Jr., had purchased the yearling trotter for $4,000.   "I was just looking through the sale book and saw that he had three full brothers who had taken marks of 1:56 or faster and that really appealed to me," Hughes Jr., admitted. "He's been a dream come true for my family. My sister and mother are involved with the horses too and having a horse in the sires stakes at this level is just anything beyond our wildest dreams."   Sultan Of Cash is the seventh foal out of the unraced Conway Hall mare Anything But Love and is a full brother to Catch The Dream 7, 1:52s ($548,463); My Future Ex 6, 1:55.4s ($100,990); and Moneydontbuyulove 3, 1:56.4f ($10,860).   Sent off as the 1-1 favorite, Sultan Of Cash was content to sit behind the leading Manny L (Kayne Kaufmann) through a :28 first quarter and :58 second quarter clocking before taking over the lead. Once on top, he trotted comfortably through a 1:27.1 third panel with a :30 final quarter brush to finish one length in front of 3-1 Countthebenjamins (Chris Page) with 11-1 Mr Jubilant (Aaron Merriman) nabbing show honors.   Count On Cody (Jason Brewer) captured his OSS test in 1:57.1 for trainer Marty Wollam and owners-breeders Acadia Farms, Canfield, OH and G&B Racing, New Wilmington, PA. The son of Full Count was on the front end for nearly the whole mile and now has $33,400 in earnings after finishing second in Leg 1 of this series on July 8 at Northfield Park. In My Dreams was second at 5-1 for trainer Hugh Beatty, while 10-1 Dontforgetmaster (Josh Sutton) was third.   Sugar Top (Peter Wrenn) and Joggintothebank (Dan Noble) gave the Scioto fans a healthy duel as they battled down the stretch in the third OSS division with the former prevailing by a head over the latter in 1:57. Woof, a 12-1 shot, was third for Dave Palone. Sugar Top, a son of Manofmanymissions, out of the Sir Taurus mare Sugar, was fifth in Leg 1 of the series at Northfield Park on July 8. Conditioned by Melanie Wrenn, Sugar Top is owned by Gene Oldford, St. Clair, MI and Wrenn Racing of Carmel, IN and now has $22,000 in career earnings.   Driver Kayne Kauffman piloted 12-1 Cash Lane to a wire-to-wire victory in the final OSS division, with the son of Cash Hall stopping the timer in 1:56.2. Owned by Richard Finfrock of New Carlisle, OH, Cash Lane upped his career earnings to $23,200 with the win. Trained by Mike Polhamus, Cash Lane had finished a modest fourth in Leg 1 at Northfield. Win Chaser was second, two lengths behind the winner, at 5-2 for trainer Anthony MacDonald, while 43-1 longshot Banker Twentyfive was third for Ronnie Wrenn, Jr.   Kimberly Rinker  

Smalltownthrowdown (Cash Hall) was the champion of the three year old colt and gelding division of the New York Sire Stakes for trotters in 2016. Following his championship campaign, Smalltownthrowdown changed connections and moved to the stable of trainer Rene Allard. The talented highstepper made his debut for Allard in Sunday afternoon's feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel. After using two winning qualifiers as preps, Smalltownthrowdown had post three in the $14,000 Open Trot on Sunday and moved out to the early lead with Billy Dobson in the sulky. The favored Cash Me Out (Mark Beckwith) was relegated to the pocket and tracked the leader throughout. The six-horse feature saw a blanket finish with five of the six separated by only a neck at the wire. When the dust settled, it was Smalltownthrowdown who emerged victorious in the mile clocked in 1:55.2. Boli (Wally Hennessey) hit the board for the ninth consecutive start as he finished second while Cash Me Out had to settle for third after the scramble in the stretch in the feature. Smalltownthrowdown paid $7.60 to win and started an exacta and triple that came back $45.60 and $122.50, respectively. Live racing resumes on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga with a matinee that starts at 12:15pm. Mike Sardella

Lucid Thoughts (Cash Hall) has been a picture of consistency this season. The nine year old harness racing trotter hit the board in twelve of his fifteen starts this season heading into his try in the $14,500 Open Trot on Sunday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel. Shawn Gray piloted the John Macdonald trainee and got away in the two-hole behind Cincinnati Miss (Frank Coppola Jr) who won the Open just two weeks ago. Cincinnati Miss carved out the fractions and after checking in at three quarters in 1:26 extended her lead around the final turn. Longshot Lucid Thoughts then gathered a head of steam and came charging hard in the stretch. The veteran high-stepper reeled in Cincinnati Miss in the final strides before stopping the timer in 1:55.1, a time that matched the effort from trotting mare Charmed Life on April 23rd as the fastest of the season for a trotter at Saratoga. Cincinnati Miss was the runner-up while the favored Boli (Wally Hennessey) was late on the scene to earn the show spot. Lucid Thoughts paid a hefty $33.40 to win in the upset while the exacta and triple came back $178 and $310, respectively. Live racing resumes on Thursday afternoon at Saratoga with a matinee beginning at 12:15pm. Mike Sardella
