EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - The Meadowlands' Pick-4 pools raised to high levels last weekend, just in time for what is in all probability to be a record three days in terms of average harness racing field size at the mile oval. Last Friday (Dec. 13) and Saturday (Dec. 14) saw the second- and third-highest 50-cent Pick-4 pools of the Fall Meeting, as $95,479 was wagered Friday before $97,773 was bet Saturday. The top Pick-4 pool came on TVG/Fall Final Four night (Nov. 23) when $110,502 was poured into the pot. Couple those numbers with the average field size of the three race cards that will be offered this Thursday-Saturday, and you get ideal conditions for big Pick-4 play. This Thursday's (Dec. 19) card gets a "perfect" score, as all 11 races have full 10-horse fields. The Friday (Dec. 20) and Saturday (Dec. 21) programs each have 14 races, with 13 full fields and one that has nine horses. In total, the Big M will offer 39 races over the three-day race week, with 37 offering 10-horse fields. The average field size - assuming no scratches - will be 9.95 horses per race. It's hard to imagine a higher number than that over a span of three programs ever, even though records do not exist. "We are so pleased at the response we've received at the entry box," said Meadowlands' Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Jason Settlemoir. "Big fields are what our customers want, and over the next three race cards, we will deliver." Last Friday's Pick-4 featured a 75-1 winner in leg one, leading to a handsome payoff of $3,528 despite no horse longer than odds of 5-2 winning any of the final three legs. Saturday night's 50-cent Pick-5 featured a 26-1 shot and a 36-1 shot, resulting in a single-ticket-winner payoff of $33,873. Twenty-cent Jackpot Super High-Five players are no doubt chomping at the bit to get their action Thursday. The carryover for Race 5 is at $12,866, while Race 11 will start out with $54,275 in the hat. Free program pages for the 50-cent Pick-4, the Big M's signature wager that has a $50,000 guaranteed pool on Fridays and Saturdays as well as a low 15 percent takeout, are available at ustrotting.com and playmeadowlands.com. CARTER'S UP NEXT: The USTA's Michael Carter is next in the 'batting order' to "Borrow Ken's Binoculars", as guest announcers give Big M voice Ken Warkentin a breather on Thursdays during December. Carter will call the races Thursday (Dec. 19) with Big M TV personality Dave Little scheduled to call on Dec. 26. DON'T PANIC! IT'S DEXTER AND YANNICK: Last weekend was another good one for the Big M's dynamic driving duo of Dexter Dunn and Yannick Gingras. Dunn won nine of his 26 drives, good for a win percentage of 35. The track's leading driver upped his Fall Meet win total to 41 while compiling a positive return on investment of 34 percent over the three racing programs. Gingras had six winners (and nine seconds) in 34 attempts (18 percent) and is second to Dunn in the overall standings with 27 victories. QUINCY'S COOL: New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa held court on Saturday (Dec. 14) night at the track, signing autographs and taking selfies with fans as the U.S. Marine Corps collected hundreds of gifts for the annual "Toys for Tots" drive. FOX5 sportscaster Tina Cervasio was on hand to serve as master of ceremonies at the event. She also helped out when driver Pat Berry won the 4,000th race of his career, taking part in the winner's circle presentation. All toys collected were donated to Harlem Grown, helping to brighten the season for children in need.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Southwind Chrome shrugged off a late challenger once again on the way to winning a second straight Friday night harness racing feature at the Meadowlands, the Preferred for trotters. Last week, the Jeff Cullipher trainee had to deal with Muscle M Up from the far turn to the finish but dug in determinedly to win in a snappy 1:51.4. On Friday night, the 4-year-old son of Chapter Seven-Counter Pointe had to deal with Melady's Monet in the latter stages, but once again proved up to the challenge. Southwind Chrome was asked for speed from the gate from driver Dexter Dunn and provided it, racing wide around the first turn before tucking into the three-hole as JL Cruze hit the quarter in :27. Shortly thereafter, Southwind Chrome was back on the outside moving toward the leader, clearing the top just after the three-eighths and leading at the half in :55.1. Melady's Monet, the 9-5 favorite, was activated first-over at this point and gradually made up ground on the leader but was still 1½ lengths behind when they turned for home. Through the stretch, Southwind Chrome maintained his edge in a thoroughly dominant performance, hitting the wire 1¼ lengths in front of Melady's Monet. JL Cruze held on for third.   Southwind Chrome paid $7.40 to win as the second choice in the wagering after completing the mile in 1:52.1. He now has 11 wins from 31 lifetime starts and earnings of $196,085 for owners Pollack Racing and Cullipher. "I would say he was better tonight than last week," said Cullipher. "When he broke three starts ago, we'll just leave it as a driver's error. He's a little funny with his mouth. He can't stand to be pulled on too much." As for Southwind Chrome's future, Cullipher has high hopes. "(Owner) Tom (Pollack) and I are going to sit down at the beginning of the year and discuss what we are going to do. I think we are going to try many of the older trotting events, races like the Graduate, during 2020." A LITTLE MORE: Leading driver Dunn upped his win total at the meeting to 37 after winning five times on the program. ... The Ettore Annunziata-trained Mister Truth pulled off a 78-1 shocker in the eighth race with Vinny Ginsburg driving, keying a 50-cent Pick-4 that came back $3,528.40 in the first of two Toys For Tots Finals (this one for a TrackMaster rating 74.5 or less on the pace) on the program. Piercewave Hanover took the other (for non-winners of $6,500 on the trot). ... All-source wagering on the 13-race program totaled $2,210,198. ... Racing resumes Saturday at 7:15 p.m. By Dave Little, Meadowlands Media Relations

CHESTER, PA - The Sir Lincoln mare Lincoln's Girl N came uncovered into a :55 last half and still was able to draw away from favored Glorious Nite to win the $17,000 pacing distaff harness racing feature at Harrah's Philadelphia on Friday afternoon in a career best 1:52.4. Jive Dancing A shot away from the gate to the lead, with Glorious Nite making a move at the :28.1 quarter to get the lead, and she got a breather to a :57.4 half. Dexter Dunn sent his "countrymate" first-over from third entering the backstretch, and the big battle was on with Glorious Nite retaining command through the 1:25.2 three-quarters, Lincoln's Girl N still coming up to her, and Jive Dancing A starting to get a bit loose in the pocket. In the stretch a 34-day layoff may have caught up with Glorious Nite, but Lincoln's Girl N was certainly strong in her own right, going by the leader to win by ¾ of a length, with Jive Dancing A holding third. Lincoln's Girl N is now 4-for-6 on these shores and looking headed for better things for trainer Josh Green, who is co-owner along with Richard Lombardo and David Kryway. The Kadabra gelding Smokee Mirrors closed valiantly from far back to miss just ¾ of a length in his last start, so today driver Corey Callahan tried the front end, and his trotter liked the trip just fine, taking a new mark of 1:55.4 in a 1½ length victory over Freshette Hanover. Andrew Harris conditions the winner for owner Robert Key. Tim Tetrick added four more wins on the Friday card, keeping his hot streak alive, but now we know his long period of recent success at Philly will end Sunday, for next week Tetrick has been invited to Finland - within four miles of the Arctic Circle -- to compete in a special tournament. From the PHHA / Harrah's Philadelphia

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Live harness racing at the Meadowlands will increase during the month of December, and based on how successful he was during November, that likely suits Dexter Dunn just fine. Thursday racing makes its debut this evening (Dec. 5) as the Big M will up their number of live racing nights from two to three during December, with live action being offered every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening at 7:15 p.m. Dunn, whose career has been on a meteoric rise since coming to America in the summer of 2018, drove 23 winners during November to lead the Big M driver colony. The New Zealand native, who was the regular driver for such standouts as Bettor's Wish and Manchego, piloted three winners on a card five times during the month and won four on one occasion. Following Dunn on the November driver's hit parade were Yannick Gingras (16 wins), Tim Tetrick (13), Tyler Buter (11), Andy Miller (10), Dave Miller (10) and Andy McCarthy (9). The depth of talent of the Big M driver colony - and how evenly matched it is - is confirmed by a look at what's transpired over the last two weeks at the mile oval. The top four in terms of Universal Driver Rating System (UDRS) with at least 15 drives are Gingras (.279), McCarthy (.278), Tetrick (.270) and Buter (.268). The trainer colony is also stacked as five conditioners had two wins last weekend (Nov. 29-30): Trish Adams, Juan Cano, Tom Fanning, Patti Harmon and Andrew Harris. SOUNDS OF THE SEASON: Just like last year, Thursdays in December will feature guest announcers who will "Borrow Ken's Binoculars", as Big M voice Ken Warkentin will open his track announcer's booth to four different callers. This evening (Dec. 5), Big M TV regular fill-in and longtime harness and thoroughbred announcer Peter Kleinhans will call the races. The colorful Larry Lederman will be up next on Dec. 12, followed by the USTA's Michael Carter on Dec. 19 and "Racing from the Meadowlands" regular Dave Little on the 26th. TOP 10 TITANS: Shartin N, who has the inside track on being named Horse of the Year, sat atop the final Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown weekly Top 10 Poll that was released Tuesday. The Jim King Jr. trainee, who won 15-of-19 starts and banked just over $982,000 during the year, was No. 1 in the poll each of the 28 weeks it was posted. Bettor's Wish finished in the second spot while Greenshoe was third. According to USTA Media Relations Manager Ken Weingartner, that threesome were the only horses to appear in every Top 10. The remainder of the Final Top 10 in order were Manchego, Warrawee Ubeaut, Gimpanzee, Caviart Ally, Papi Rob Hanover, Real Cool Sam and Tall Dark Stranger. All 10 raced at the Meadowlands during 2019, with seven of the top eight having raced on TVG/Fall Final Four Night on Nov. 23.

FOX5 sportscaster Tina Cervasio will host the event, where some of Enunwa's Jets teammates will also be on hand. For those who cannot make it but would like to help, they can bring a new, unwrapped toy to the track between now and the night of the event. From the Meadowlands Media Department

Chester, PA -- Billy Badger N ($7.20) and Sugar Factory ($4.80) proved best in their respective featured harness racing pacing events on a cold and windy Sunday afternoon (Nov. 17) at Harrah's Philadelphia. Billy Badger N and owner-driver Dexter Dunn slipstreamed second-over cover before rallying to a neck victory over He's Electric in his event, a $14,500 upper-level conditioned pace. After Ocean Colony (Andy McCarthy) controlled early splits of :27 and :55.4, Dunn angled the 6-year-old Art Major gelding into the outer tier behind a steadily advancing Seeing Eye Single (Yannick Gingras) up the backstretch. Turning for home, Billy Badger N angled three-wide and lifted to just prevail over He's Electric (David Miller) -- who emerged from traffic -- in 1:53.1. Letschasethedreamn (George Napolitano Jr.) saved third from the pocket. Richard 'Nifty' Norman trains Billy Badger N, whose third consecutive win was also the 15th of his career. In the co-featured $16,000 conditioned pace, John Cancelliere's Sugar Factory made every call a winning one, posting a 1:52.3 win as the 7-5 choice. George Napolitano Jr. sent the 3-year-old Sweet Lou colt to a clear lead from the outset, and the pair clicked through sectionals of :28.1, :56.3 and 1:24.3 before bracing for a head-stretch challenge from Glacis (Pat Lachance), who angled out from third off the home turn. Sugar Factory held sway by a length over Glacis, while Smackitwithahammer (Tim Tetrick) chased from the pocket to finish third. Tom Cancelliere trains five-time winner Sugar Factory. Live racing returns to Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday (Nov. 20), and will feature a $6,427.94 carryover in the Jackpot Hi-5 in race five. First post is 12:25 p.m. Eastern. by James Witherite, for Harrah's Philadelphia  

Chester, PA -- Ron Burke trainee Larry Karr ($5.60) captured his third straight harness racing win on Sunday afternoon (Nov. 3) at Harrah's Philadelphia, cruising to a powerful 1:49.4 score in the day's featured $18,000 top-level conditioned pace. Dexter Dunn sent the 4-year-old A Rocknroll Dance gelding clear of Rockapelo (Tim Tetrick) through a sharp :26.2 first quarter, and the pair maintained a healthy pace thereafter. After reeling off a :54.4 half, Larry Karr used a :26.4 third sectional to extend his lead over Rockapelo to four lengths into the final turn, and he continued to edge away in the stretch. Larry Karr claimed his 17th career victory by a widening 4-1/2 lengths over Hayden Hanover (Marcus Miller), who emerged late to take runner-up honors over Rockapelo. The human Larry Karr shares ownership in the equine athlete of the same name with the Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi and Frank Baldachino.

Andy McCarthy was looking for his first Breeders Crown trophy when he arrived at Woodbine Mohawk Park this past Friday. By the time the weekend was completed, he had put himself among a small group of drivers to win four or more finals in a year. He set himself apart by doing it without the benefit of a favorite. McCarthy became the eighth driver with at least four Crowns in a year, joining record-holder David Miller (five in 2015), John Campbell, Yannick Gingras, Mike Lachance, Ron Pierce, Brian Sears, and Tim Tetrick. Campbell, Gingras, Pierce, and Sears accomplished the feat twice. But none sans chalk until McCarthy scored with 2-year-old filly trotter Ramona Hill (14-1), 2-year-old filly pacer Reflect With Me (27-1), pacing mare Caviart Ally (5-2), and 3-year-old male pacer Dancin Lou (5-1). "It's surreal," the 33-year-old McCarthy said. "It makes me feel pretty good about where I'm at right now. You want to give yourself a little pat on the back after hearing something like that. It's a pretty nice little niche to be in." McCarthy, a native of Australia who has raced regularly in North America since 2007, has seen his purse earnings increase annually since the start of 2013, reaching a career-best $6.56 million this season. For his career, he has won $44 million in purses and nearly 2,400 races. He got Breeders Crown triumph No. 1 in the first of the event's 12 races, capturing the 2-year-old filly trot from post 10 with Tony Alagna-trained Ramona Hill. "I was quietly confident going into the weekend; I didn't expect four, but I knew I had four or five decent chances," McCarthy said. "Ramona Hill, even though she had the 10-hole, I still considered her one of the better shots I had throughout the weekend because I know how talented she is. She wasn't herself the week before, but I knew Tony would get on top of that and have that figured out. I hold her in high regard as one of the better horses I've ever driven. I think she's that talented." McCarthy was happy to get his first trophy quickly. "It's always really nice to break the ice," he said. "Winning the first of anything, it's always nice to get that out of the way, then you can kind of relax and move on and not have that monkey on your shoulder. Just being able to concentrate on your job without any added pressure as the weekend goes on is definitely nice." He was back in the winner's circle again in the very next race with another Alagna trainee, Reflect With Me. Then on Saturday night, he again got off to a fast start when Brett Pelling-trained Caviart Ally upended her nemesis, Shartin N, in the mare pace. Caviart Ally had finished second to Shartin N on five occasions this season before winning their most recent two outings. "She's been terrific all year, I just haven't been able to get the better of Shartin until now," McCarthy said. "It does feel good. That rivalry, I think it's a good rivalry as much as any rivalry. Even though Shartin has had the better of us all year, it still is a rivalry. When people turn on that race, they're wondering how it's going to go down. I think we put on good racing. I think it's very good for racing. It's very cool to watch and even more to be a part of it." McCarthy wrapped up his four wins with Dancin Lou, trained by another Aussie import (and first-time Crown winner) Tahnee Camilleri. "That was special because I'm good friends with Tahnee," McCarthy said. "She's a special person. She's so happy and emotional. She was crying in the winner's circle and couldn't stop hugging the horse and I just love to see that. That worked out really cool. It was a lot of fun." The weekend was also cool because McCarthy's younger brother Todd, an accomplished driver in Australia, came to visit for the Breeders Crown. The two spent the week together and got to hang out in Toronto the day prior to the Breeders Crown's opening night. "I had a quiet week back home, so I thought I'd jump on a plane and come over and cheer him on," Todd said. "It's pretty awesome to be here and experience it with him. These races are so hard to win. I think that's what we're all here for, to try to win these sorts of races. To be here is pretty special. I called home and mom and dad were buzzing. It's great." Also cheering on Andy was his wife Katrina. "It was even more special having her there as well," Andy said. McCarthy was grateful to all the trainers and owners that gave him the chance to drive horses in the Breeders Crown. "Without them, none of this would be possible," McCarthy said. "Everybody always remembers these nights. As far as winning big races, this is right up there. I know there's a lot of them, but still it's nice to have at least one of those trophies on your cabinets." After a moment, he said with a laugh, "I might even have to buy a trophy cabinet now." * * * * * * McCarthy was not the only driver from Down Under to get his first Breeders Crown at Mohawk. New Zealand native Dexter Dunn, in his first full season of racing in North America, got two trophies. His first came with 2-year-old male trotter Amigo Volo for trainer Nifty Norman and the second with trotting mare Manchego for trainer Nancy Johansson. "I probably have to pinch myself a little; really, it's hard to believe," Dunn said in a winner's circle interview. "Back in New Zealand, I followed the American races, like (Hambletonian) Day and Breeders Crown, and I'd be back in New Zealand watching them on TV and now I'm here. It's pretty cool. It's very exciting. "I've been extremely lucky with the support I've gotten since I've been here. I have a lot of people to thank. It's been a great ride and I'm enjoying it thoroughly." Dunn has won 336 races and $10 million in purses this year. His earnings rank third in North America. "It's been a great year," Dunn said. "(Trainers) Chris Ryder and Nifty Norman were two of the first ones to jump on me and supported me when I got over here and got me kickstarted. Without their huge support I wouldn't be here. "I've been very fortunate this year with the horses I've gotten to sit behind. It's been a pleasure." by Ken Weingartner, for the USTA 

MILTON, ONTARIO, October 26 - Manchego and driver Dexter Dunn put on a  harness racing show in capturing the $325,000 (US) Breeders Crown for Open Mares on Saturday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park in a scintillating 1:51 mile. The 4-year-old mare by Muscle Hill won for the fifth straight time in the process as the 1-2 betting choice. Plunge Blue Chip and Ice Attraction left inside Manchego and the early skirmish saw Plunge Blue Chip take control with two-time Breeders Crown champion Emoticon Hanover settling in second after leaving from the outside post. Dunn positioned Manchego in third and after a :26 1/5 quarter cut out by Plunge Blue Chip he sent her to the front. Manchego had control and looked a picture setting the tempo with fractions of :55 3/5 and 1:23 4/5 and upon turning for home the Nancy Johansson-trained mare hit high gear and left Plunge Blue Chip gasping for air. The rest chased in futility as Dunn checked the rear-view mirror and let her mare kick home in an impressive :27 1/5 final quarter. Emoticon Hanover would rally late for the place spot ahead of Plunge Blue Chip. Weslynn Dancer and Hannelore Hanover hit the wire together in a dead-heat for fourth. It was Manchego's seventh win in 15 starts this year for owner Black Horse Racing and the victory boost her career bankroll above the $2 million mark. Bred by Brittany Farms Manchego returned $3.10 as the public choice. "She's just exploded the last half of the season," said Dunn following the victory. "She felt great once again tonight." It was the second Breeders Crown victory for Manchego who captured the juvenile filly trot in 2017 at Hoosier Park.   From Woodbine Communications/Hambletonian Society

MILTON, ONTARIO, October 25, 2019 - Harness racing trotter Amigo Volo (Dexter Dunn) was never challenged in a wire-to-wire mile of 1:54.3, taking the the $600,000 (USD) Breeders Crown Two-Year-Old Colt Trot Final on Friday at Woodbine Mohawk Park. A quartet of trotting colts left alertly but Amigo Volo soared to the top around the first turn and led commandingly by 2 lengths to cut the first quarter in :26.4. Leading the rest of the field from second was Third Shift, with Capricornus third. The huge favorite, Real Cool Sam, was rolling in seventh through a record-breaking half of :55.3 by Amigo Volo. Third Shift struggled following as Amigo Volo raided three-quarters in 1:24, drawing away into the stretch. As Amigo Hall put 5 lengths in front of the field, Real Cool Sam's attempt to make up ground was defied by sharp-closing longshot Rome Pays Off, who nipped Chestnut Hill for second. Amigo Volo (Father Patrick--Margarita Momma) crossed the wire 4 lengths the best in 1:54.3 for trainer Richard Norman. It was Dexter Dunn's first Breeders Crown-winning drive. Bred by Kentuckiana Farms, the $42,000 yearling is owned by Pinske Stables and David Miller. Amigo Volo paid $7.10 to win. To watch the race replay, click here.

The freakish Down Under reins man Dexter Dunn headlined the harness racing card on Saturday at Woodbine Mohawk Park in Canada. With Dunn winning six races on the card, he simply amazed all harness racing followers. Five of his winners were Breeders Crown eliminations. The caliber of horses Dunn is sitting behind is astonishing and complements perfectly with his amazing ability of always giving the horse the best chance of reaching their maximum potential. Dunn teamed up with former Down Under trainer Chris Ryder to win one of the 3yo Colts and Gelding Breeders Crown Elimination with classy colt Bettors Wish. “You can't help but love him, he's such a cool horse”, Dunn said of Bettors Wish following the win. The Down Under duo look to have a great chance in the Final coming up next Saturday. Dexter Dunn’s other wins on the day were top trotter Millie’s Possession in the 3yo Fillies elimination, Darling Mearas S in the Open Trotting Mares elimination, exceptional trotting mare Manchego in the Open Mares elimination and Dancing Lou in the other 3yo Pacing Colts and Gelding elimination. New Zealand Harness Jewels winner qualifies in North America. Top Down Under pacer Jacks Legend qualified at Yonkers Raceway on Friday. The New Zealand bred gelding clocked a time of 1:56.1 in his qualifier around the half mile (800m) track. He is now trained by Richard Banca and was driven by Jason Bertlett. While racing in New Zealand, Jacks Legend was the winner of 10 races and over $450,000 in prize money, for Hall of Fame trainer Barry Purdon. He placed at Group level 12 times, with the highlights of his down under career being winning the 3yo Emerald Harness Jewels in a time of 1:51.8, and running 2nd in the New Zealand Cup to champion pacer Lazarus. Jacks Legend seen here winning Down Under New Zealand Great Northern Derby winner also qualified in North America.

MILTON, ONT, October 19, 2019 - Harness racing driver Dexter Dunn completed a night to remember Saturday at Woodbine Mohawk Park by capturing both 3-Year-Old Colt Pace Breeders Crown eliminations for a six-win night. A group of 15 sophomore pacing colts were split into two $32,500 (CAD) eliminations to determine the field for next Saturday's (October 26) $600,000 final. Sent the 1-2 favourite, Bettors Wish sat second to a :27.1 opening quarter set by Cant Beach That, who yielded command as Southwind Ozzi marched to the top from third moving to the backstretch. Southwind Ozzi took the field by the half in :56.3 while Dunn angled Bettors Wish first over from third moving to the final turn. Bettors Wish drew alongside Southwind Ozzi passing three-quarters in 1:24.2 and powered past entering the stretch. Through the lane Bettors Wish expanded his lead on Southwind Ozzi as he clung to second in the 1:51 mile with Covered Bridge, De Los Cielos Deo and Bronx Seelster rounding the finalists. "You can't help but love him," Dunn said of Bettors Wish after the race. "He's such a cool horse. He's had a great year and I think tonight was probably the best he's actually felt post parading and that. I've given him some pretty hard runs too the poor wee fella and he just keeps bouncing back. It's a credit to Chris [Ryder] and the team for the job they do--he's just sublime." Collecting his 12th win from 16 starts this season and his 17th from 28 overall, Bettors Wish has amassed over $1.7 million in earnings for owners Chris Ryder, Bella Racing Ltd., Fair Island Farm Inc. and Bettors Wish Partners. "Coming into this week [he] had two good weeks in Kentucky and after that I thought 'Well, it's my job that he's not messed up this week,'" Ryder said after the race. "I just kept my fingers crossed for another week. It's been a great year...I just love having him; he's a beautiful horse. We actually had a bit of a hiccup with a foot this week but it came right and he's an easy keeper." Bettors Wish returned $3.00 to win. To watch the race replay, click here. Dancin Lou darted through a seam at the pylons and past tiring leaders to take the first Breeders Crown elimination. Stag Party pushed for the front heading to the first turn while 4-5 favourite Captain Crunch sat second to a :26.1 first quarter. Captain Crunch soon circled to the lead entering the backstretch while Century Farroh raced anxiously from third before angling off the pegs and brushing to command. Past the half in :55.4, Century Farroh faced first-over pressure from Air Force Hanover circling the final turn. Captain Crunch fanned three wide through a gap in cover passing three-quarters in 1:23.2 and slid past the dueling and drifting leaders into the stretch. Dancin Lou stuck towards the pylons and had a straight shot to the front in the final eighth, hitting the finish in 1:50.1. "[The trip] worked out pretty good really," Dunn said after the race. "There was a bit of action in that race. He was really good last out at Lexington but he was better tonight. We took our shot, took a bit of luck and he got around the inside there and really exploded." Owned by David Kryway and 1362313 Ontario Ltd., Dancin Lou won his 11th race from 27 starts, earning $284,756. Tahnee Camilleri conditions the Sweet Lou colt who advances to the final along with Best In Show, Captain Crunch, Fixed Idea and Semi Tough. "That was a really good field tonight--I'm just so proud of that little colt," said Camilleri, who made the decision to try Dancin Lou in the Breeders Crown after his win at Lexington two weeks ago. "I'm very thankful it's panned out so far with the owners. I haven't come from a racing background and it's just been a uphill struggle to get recognized. To have a horse like this is great for my career and I'm very thankful the owners gave me a shot." Dancin Lou paid $12.20 to win. To watch the race replay, click here. Post positions for the $600,000 final will be drawn on Tuesday at a press conference. Elimination winners will draw for posts one through five. From Woodbine Entertainment/Hambletonian Society  

MILTON, ONT, October 19, 2019 - Harness racing reinsman Dexter Dunn cleaned up in the Mare Trot eliminations on Saturday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park to add to his big night in the Breeders Crown eliminations. A total of 15 older trotting mares were split into a pair of $32,500 (CAD) eliminations to determine the Breeders Crown final field. Dexter Dunn found a seam late in the stretch and was able to knife through and catapult Darling Mearas S to victory in the first elimination. Darling Mearas S left alertly then yielded willingly into the first turn to Custom Cantab who cut the opening fraction in :27 3/5. David Miller put the breaks on in the short field and had Custom Cantab in control through a half in a pedestrian :57 clocking. The pace picked up as Dream Together moved to the outside on the turn followed by Hannelore Hanover and race favorite Plunge Blue Chip second and third over respectively. Custom Cantab had all of the rating required to get the job done but turning into the homestretch off the 1:26 1/5 mile the field was closing in. Dream Together was holding her ground first-over and Plunge Blue Chip had rallied wide for Ake Svanstedt and flanked Hannelore Hanover as those continued to grind up towards the leader. Yet it was Dunn who found room at the right time and Darling Mearas As, a daughter of Cantab Hall had the explosive speed necessary in the final sprint to get the job done in a 1:53 2/5 clocking. Plunge Blue Chip rallied brilliantly for second with Custom Cantab holding on for third. Hannelore Hanover and Dream Together also advance into next week's final. Supergirl Riley made a break well before the start and lost her chance at the final. Bettors were given a refund as the mare was declared a "non-starter." Darling Mearas As paid $17.40 winning for the third time in 12 starts this year for trainer Ake Svanstedt and owner-breeder Snogarps Gard of Sweden. "She got herself in good position," Dunn said. "We really got lucky half way down the stretch. Looks like we're in good shape for next week." To see the race replay, click here. Manchego got the respect one would expect from a 1-5 betting choice and had little difficulty in strolling down the road to capture the second Mares trot elimination for Dunn. It was the fourth straight victory for the 4-year-old by Muscle Hill. Only Manchego and Emoticon Hanover left in the field of eight and Manchego had control before the :27 opening quarter with Emoticon Hanover content to race in the pocket for Bob McClure. With no challengers Dunn cruised to the half in :56 4/5 and waited for challengers to come. Hey Livvy was flushed out on the final bend by Weslynn Dancer but couldn't make a dent in the leaders margin as Manchego controlled the pace through a three quarter clocking of 1:25 2/5. In the homestretch Dunn looked around to see where the competition was coming from but there was none to be found. Manchego did drift a bit off the pylons but at no point did the Nancy Johansson-trained mare need any assistance from her driver and she scored comfortably in 1:52 3/5 with a :27 1/5 final quarter. Emoticon Hanover held on for the place spot with Weslynn Dancer closing well to finish third. Ice Attraction became the third Ake Svanstedt-trained mare to qualify for the final and Highland Top Hill rounded out those advancing. Manchego won for the sixth time in 2019 and returned $2.40 as the prohibitive favorite. She's trained by Nancy Johansson for owner Black Horse Racing. "She's exceptional," said Johansson. "There's no other way to describe her." "She felt great again tonight," said Dunn referring to her consecutive world record performances at The Red Mile and Dayton. As far as the mare drifting out some. "You just let her do her thing. She was full of run at the line." To watch the race replay, click here. Post positions for the $325,000 Mare Trot final were drawn following the eliminations.

MILTON, ONT, October 19, 2019 - Sophomore harness racing trotting fillies launched the second night of Breeders Crown eliminations on Saturday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park. A group of 16 three-year-old trotting fillies were split into a pair of $32,500 (CAD) eliminations to determine the field for next Saturday's (October 26) $600,000 final. Yannick Gingras picked up where he left off a night earlier sending The Ice Dutchess to the front shortly past the quarter pole and rolling to an easy 1:53 score in the first elimination. Grimmie Hanover left alertly to gain control into the opening bend for Corey Callahan with The Ice Dutchess getting looped initially and then driving forward. Grimmie Hanover cut the quarter in :28 1/5 but yielded to The Ice Dutchess in short order and then followed from a distant pocket. Evident Beauty, the 3-2 betting choice sat third and was patient past the half in :57 flat and it wasn't until midway on the final turn as The Ice Dutchess drew clear from Grimmie Hanover that David Miller sent Evident Beauty out on the offensive followed closely by Only Take Cash. The Ice Dutchess passed three quarters in 1:24 3/5 and had a sizable advantage heading into the homestretch when Evident Beauty appeared to be closing the gap but in midstretch Evident Beauty made a miscue that she wouldn't recover from and Gingras sat idly in the bike and allowed his filly to march home in a :28 2/5 final quarter to complete the mile. Only Take Cash was a solid closing second as Winndevie with Brian Sears made up a huge amount of ground in the late stretch to finish third. Early leader Grimmie Hanover held on for fourth while Seaside Bliss closed out the qualifiers from this division. The Ice Dutchess is owned by Coyote Wynd Farms and trained by Nancy Johansson. It as the fifth win in 2019 for The Ice Dutchess who paid $8.80 for the win. "Nancy (Johansson) has got her figured out. When she's on her game she can do it any way," Gingras said of The Ice Dutchess. "We've had trouble getting her around this track," said Johansson. "I think we've found the right shoe combination." To watch the race replay, click here. Millies Possession and driver Dexter Dunn made a bold move on the backstretch to gain control and then easily held off Hambletonian Oaks champion When Dovescry in the stretch to post a 6-1 upset in the second elimination. When Dovescry and driver Simon Allard left alertly from post two to gain control and managed to force a host of leavers into holes with Cambridge Kate taking a seat and Kentucky Futurity filly champion Beautiful Sin dropping in fourth before entering the first turn. Millies Possession got away in fifth and after When Dovescry hit the quarter in :27 flat Dunn wasted little time and sent the homebred Millies Possession and a brisk backstretch bull rush that saw her take command well before the :56 1/5 opening half clocking. Dunn kept Millies Possession engaged on the front end and had her hit three quarters in 1:24 as Ake Svanstedt and Beautiful Sin languished on the rim unable to make up ground on the leaders. It was a two-filly race in the homestretch and Dunn kept Millies Possession to her task as When Dovescry angled and drifted out through the stretch but didn't make up ground. Sweet Chapter held her ground inside and finished third ahead of a solid closing Asiago with Miss Trixton gaining the final berth. Millies Possession trotted the mile in 1:53. Millies Possession was a winner for the 11th time in 14 career starts all in 2019 for trainer Jim Campbell and owner Jules Siegel's Fashion Farm LLC. "She's a great filly," said Dunn following the race. "She felt good when I warmed her up. That move down the backstretch was the best she's felt all year." Millies Possession bounced back from her worst performance of the year, a seventh-place finish in the Kentucky Filly Futurity. "She had a legitimate excuse," said Campbell for The Red Mile disappointment. "She scoped sick after the race. We got her back to New Jersey and on antibiotics and she bounced back."
