ANDERSON, IN --The Hoosier State's top trotters and pacers were on display at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Wednesday, August 1 as the Anderson, Indiana oval played host to a stakes filled 14-race card. Six $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Finals were featured on the program and each division delivered some outstanding harness racing battles. It was a night ruled by favorites and Hoosier Park's leading driver, Trace Tetrick, who had five winners on the program. The action packed evening opened with the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for two-year-old pacing fillies and Glorious Virgin looked every bit the part of a 4-5 favorite as she overcame a tough, first-over bid to score in 1:51.1. Driven by Trace Tetrick, Glorious Virgin sat third for much of the mile before using a :26.3 closing quarter to record her second consecutive victory and make clean sweep of the second round of stakes action. The 1:51.1 final time established a new lifetime best for the two-year-old filly and equaled the national season's mark for two-year-old pacers. Trained by Shane Bowermaster, Glorious Virgin has now won three of four lifetime starts. The homebred daughter of Always A Virgin-Bound For Glory has now amassed $66,500 in lifetime purse earnings for her connections at Emerald Highlands Farm. "She's a very smart filly," Bowermaster noted in the winner's circle. "The closer we got to qualifying her, the better she got. We haven't had to make many adjustments to her so far-she has done everything we've asked of her." Following suit, Custom Cantab and Peter Wrenn delivered as the heavy 1-5 favorite in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old trotting fillies. With Peter Wrenn in the bike, Custom Cantab dug in gamely late in the mile to hold off all challengers and find the wire first in 1:53.2. It was the fourth consecutive win of the season and sixth win from seven seasonal outings for the filly. Red Rose Swan and LeWayne Miller dictated first half fractions of :27.4 and :56.1 while Custom Cantab opted for a pocket trip. Wrenn gave Custom Cantab the green light and the filly ranged up to take the lead just before the three-quarters in 1:24.4. Verlin Yoder had O So Easy on the attack first-over and Red Rose Swan was poised to strike from the pocket turning for home. Wrenn asked his mount for more and she dug in gamely to hold off all challengers and get the win by a head. "She showed a lot of guts tonight," Wrenn noted in the winner's circle. "She's smart about everything and her consistency is what sets her apart from the rest. She likes to win now, too." Trained by Christopher Beaver, who also co-owns the filly with Donald Robinson and RBH Ventures Inc., the daughter of Mr Cantab-Custom Model recorded her eighth lifetime victory from 19 trips behind the gate. Custom Cantab pushed her lifetime bankroll to $335,786 with the win. Fresh off a decisive win in his elimination last week, Fiftydallarbill turned in another gritty performance to take home top honors in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings. Overcoming the outside post nine, Fiftydallarbill utilized a :27.4 final panel to track down the pace-setting Katkin American and James Yoder in the final strides of the mile. With regular pilot Trace Tetrick at the lines, Fiftydallarbill stopped the timer in 1:52.4 and recorded his third consecutive victory. "I couldn't have asked for a better trip," Tetrick noted after the win. "I knew one of us was going to be on the front but I was happy to sit behind. My colt has matured so much this year and he just gets better with every start." Recording his fifth win of the season from eight outings, Fiftydallarbill is trained by William Crone. The Breeders Crown two-year-old trotting colt champion is owned by John Barnard and now sports a lifetime bankroll of $601,247. The sole upset of the evening came in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old pacing fillies as Neverforgetwhour went gate to wire in 1:52 at odds of 5-1. With Elliott Deaton in the bike, Neverforgetwhour set splits of :26.3, :54.3 and 1:22.4 and held on gamely to get the win by a head over a hard-charging It's Time For Fun and Brandon Bates. The 1:52 clocking was a new lifetime best for the sophomore filly. Trained, owned and bred by Anette Lorentzon, the daughter of Always A Virgin-Book Babe notched her third win from six seasonal starts. With the win, Neverforgetwhour pushed her lifetime bankroll over the $100,000 mark. The two-year-old pacing colts were up next in their split of the stakes action and it was Outloud and driver Peter Wrenn who staged an impressive rally late in the lane to get up in the final strides of the mile and stop the timer in 1:51.1. Sitting next to last at the top of the stretch, Outloud employed a :26.2 final quarter to surge past Ima Real Ladys Man and Michael Oosting to put a nose in front. The 1:51.1 clocking was a new lifetime best and equaled the national season's mark for two-year-old pacers. "That was amazing, wasn't it?" Wrenn said in the winner's circle. "My plan was to race him off the pace and try to work out a trip. The trip didn't work out but he made up for it. He carried his speed a long way and he was very strong at the wire." Trained by Melanie Wrenn, Outloud recorded his third win of the season and second consecutive Hoosier Park victory. Owned in partnership by Dana Parham and Howard Taylor, the gelded son of Tellitlikeitis-Incredible Kitty has now earned $77,150 in lifetime purse earnings. Tetrick would get back to the winner's circle in the final split of the stakes action, the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings, with the heavily favored Always A Prince. Benefitting from a pocket trip, Always A Prince made his game winning move around the last turn and never looked back. Stopping the timer in 1:49.3, Always A Prince coasted to the wire under a hand drive to finish seven lengths to the good over the pace-setting Shnitzledosomethin and Peter Wrenn. "He's got a lot of early speed but he will let you do whatever you want with him," Tetrick noted after the victory. "I knew I wanted to be close to the front but he's a great horse so I just let him do his job." Trained by Tyler George, the gelded son of Always A Virgin-Glorious Princess recorded his 11th lifetime win from 13 trips behind the gate. Unraced as a two-year-old, Always A Prince has now earned $138,000 for Carl and Melanie Atley. It was the third round of five $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Finals for three-year-old competitors and the second round of five for the rookies. All of the evening's divisional winners earned valuable points for the season-culminating $200,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Finals slated for October 12 at Hoosier Park. Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino will continue on Thursday, August 2 with a 14-race card.

ANDERSON, IN -July 31, 2018- Indiana-sired two-year-old trotters were the featured attraction at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Tuesday, July 31 as the evening's 14-race card was highlighted by a pair of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals for the freshmen trotters. Swandre The Giant and driver, trainer Brandon Bates continued their winning ways in the second round of stakes action as they scored their fifth consecutive victory, this time in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings. After scoring handily in his elimination last week, Swandre The Giant was another open length winner scoring in a new lifetime best of 1:54.2 over a track rated good. Sent off as the 1-9 favorite, Swandre The Giant left alertly from post six but would grab a pocket seat behind Lite Years Away and LeWayne Miller. Lite Years Away dictated first half fractions of :27.1 and :56.2 while Swandre The Giant waited patiently in the pocket. Lite Years Away continued to call the shots reaching the third station in 1:26.3 but Bates gave Swandre The Giant the green light and he ranged up and was matching strides with the leader turning for home. Utilizing a :27.3 final panel, Swandre The Giant was able to track down Lite Years Away and hold off a late surge from It's a Herbie and Verlin Yoder to get the win by nearly two lengths. "That's kind of what expected as far as the trip is concerned," Bates noted after the victory. "That other horse showed early speed and he (Swandre The Giant) trains off a helmet at home. He just has unbelievable manners, he will let you do anything you want with him-he's a professional in every sense of the word." With the win, Swandre The Giant remains undefeated in five starts this season. Owned by Panic Stable, T. Ehardt, B.Hochman, R. Barone, the son of Swan For All-Adagio has now amassed an even $100,000 in lifetime purse earnings. On the filly side of the stakes action, Grand Swan and LeWayne Miller followed suit and continued their winning ways in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for two-year-old trotting fillies, scoring in 1:55.4. With the win, Grand Swan made a clean sweep of the second round of the stakes action and recorded fourth consecutive victory. Leaving from the trailing position, post ten, Grand Swan was unhurried from the gate and settled along the rail in sixth. Ricky Macomber Jr. had the post time favorite, Measuredperfection, pointed to the front and she quickly grabbed command from post nine. Measuredperfection clicked off fractions of :27.2, :57.2 and 1:27.2 before ever feeling a threat from the rest of the field. Savannah's Lucy and Andy Shetler were the first to commit to the outer flow with Grand Swan in tow. As the field turned for home, Miller tipped Grand Swan out from behind cover but Measuredperfection appeared to be up to the task. Grand Swan dug in gamely late in the mile and took advantage of a costly break by Measuredperfection to coast on to the wire six lengths in front of Tatiana Romanova and John DeLong. As the betting publics' second choice, Grand Swan returned $5.40 to her backers at the betting windows. "The race didn't work out exactly like I thought so we had to go to plan b," trainer, driver LeWayne Miller noted in the winner's circle. "I thought we had too much ground to make up turning for home but as soon as I asked her she found another gear." With the win, the daughter of Swan For All-Queen Mum recorded her fourth seasonal win from six lifetime outings. The 1:55.4 clocking established a new lifetime best for Grand Swan as she pushed her career earnings to $97,625 for owners Grand Swan Racing, Go Fast Stable, and Leslie G. Cahn.

Lazarus N will be supplemented to the Dan Patch Stakes for a fee of $25,000 by Hall of Fame trainer, Jimmy Takter.

The New Zealand bred was named Pacer of the Year at ages 3 and 4 and was victorious in two editions of the prestigious New Zealand Cup and 15 Group One events overall. Lazarus N has only finished off the board once in his career. Lazarus N was recently purchased by world-renowned Thoroughbred farm Taylor Made Sales and Stallions of Nicholasville, Kentucky as they returned to the Standardbred world with a huge splash. The six-year-old horse arrived in the United States in late May and made his debut on the racetrack with a dazzling 1:48.3 qualifying mile on Saturday, July 28 at The Meadowlands. "It is truly an honor to have a horse as incredibly renowned as Lazarus N make his North American debut at Hoosier Park during our 25th anniversary season," said Hoosier Park's Vice President and General Manager of Racing Rick Moore. "He's taking the world by storm, and his presence at our 25th edition of the $325,000 Dan Patch Stakes is a testament to the racing program we've built here in Indiana." When the nominations closed for the Dan Patch Stakes, a total of 26 of the top rated older pacers in North America were included in the lineup. William R. Haughton Memorial winner McWicked, who is currently ranked No. 2 in harness racing's weekly Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll, is among the list of eligibles. McWicked has won six of eight starts while amassing $574,561 in purse earnings this season. The Casie Coleman trainee is approaching $3 million in career earnings and is currently the top horse in harness racing's older male pacer division.

Hoosier Park Pacing Derby slated for Friday, September 21 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino.

Once again, the Dan Patch Stakes will highlight the 2018 harness racing season as the best in the sport of harness racing will descend upon the seven-eighths mile oval seeking glory in Hoosier Park's premier harness racing event.

ANDERSON, IN - Indiana-sired freshmen trotting fillies were the featured attraction at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Tuesday, July 10 as the evening's 12-race card was highlighted by the first of five $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes finals and $20,000 consolation for the two-year-old trotting fillies. Grand Swan, with LeWayne Miller in the bike, was able to overcome the outside post position nine to find the winner's circle in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final and make a clean sweep of the opening round of the stakes action. After scoring in 1:56.4 in her elimination last week, Grand Swan turned in another dominant performance to stop the timer in 1:56. Miller sent Grand Swan away from the gate but would have to work for position as a host of others also left alertly. Measuredperfection and Ricky Macomber Jr., the heavy post time favorite, were the first to get a call through the opening panel in :28 but eventually yielded the lead to Grand Swan who was unable to find a spot along the rail. Grand Swan pressed on the front and led the field through splits of :57.4 and 1:27.4 before being tested. As the field turned for home, Macomber Jr. tipped Measuredperfection out from behind the leader and she quickly trotted up to engage the leader. Just when it looked like Measuredperfection may have the edge, Miller asked Grand Swan for more and she dug in gamely to get the win by a length. Measuredperfection was forced to settle for second place honors while Sea Swan and Verlin Yoder utilized a ground saving trip to round out the trifecta.

ANDERSON, IN - Wisdom Tree returned to Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and continued her winning ways in the featured event of the evening, the $142,000 Nadia Lobell Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies, on Friday, July 6. With Sam Widger in the bike, Wisdom Tree turned in a sharp, front-running effort to stop the timer in 1:49.4 and establish a new track record for sophomore pacing fillies in the process. The previous record of 1:50.1 was established in 2016 by Rockalina and driver Mike Peterson. Widger had the heavy 3-5 favorite firing away with the wings of the gate but Ricky Macomber Jr. and Strong Opinion were a step quicker and grabbed the early lead through the opening panel in a snappy :25.3. Wisdom Tree was second but not for long. Widger gave her the green light as the field approached the half and she quickly grabbed command before the second station in :53.3. Michael Oosting and Double A Mint were next in line third and would begin the long, first-over attack just before the three-quarters in 1:21.4. The blazing speed continued but Wisdom Tree appeared strong on the front. Double A Mint was matching strides with the leader but Wisdom Tree wasn't going down without a fight. Utilizing a :28 final panel, Wisdom Tree was able to put away Double A Mint to finish a length and a half to the good. Reign on Me and LeWayne Miller utilized a ground saving trip to rally for third place honors. Wisdom Tree returned $3.40 to her backers at the betting windows. "It was a little fast to the half," Widger noted in the winner's circle. "Looking at the program, I thought we were the best in the race and she has always been strong on the front. She's a really nice filly who knows her work. She just goes out there and does her job." Trained by Jeff Cullipher, who co-owns with Thomas Pollack, Wisdom Tree scored her third consecutive victory and seventh seasonal win from nine outings. The 1:49.4 clocking was a new lifetime best as the daughter of Betterthancheddar-Wisdom pushed her career bankroll to $241,660. Wisdom Tree will likely be pointed to the Mistletoe Shalee at the Meadowlands for her next stakes engagement. The stakes action continued a little later on in the evening with the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Finals for three-year old trotting and pacing colts. Katkin American and James Yoder followed suit to deliver as the heavy betting favorite in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old trotting colts and geldings. Stopping the timer in 1:53, Katkin American made his game winning move down the backside to finish ten lengths in front of his next closest competitor. After a track record performance in his elimination last week, Katkin American recorded his third consecutive Hoosier Park victory for trainer Verlin Yoder and owner, breeder, Brett Boyd. Katkin American was won his last three outings by a combined 27 lengths. "We are so thankful to so many folks that helped get this horse here," Boyd said of his prodigy in the winner's circle. "It takes a lot of people to get one here and we are so thankful to everyone who helped us along the way. I trained his mother and he reminds me a lot of her. We love this colt and the Yoders have done such a great job with him." Unraced at two, the son of Guccio-Katkin has now won three of five lifetime starts. With the win, Katkin American nearly doubled his lifetime purse earnings to push his career bankroll to $62,000. On the pacing side of things, Rockinbeach and Ricky Macomber Jr. converted a pocket trip into a 1:49.4 score in the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings. Employing a :25.4 final quarter, Rockinbeach exploded to the wire to finish six lengths in front of Jeopardy and John DeLong. Trained by Jamie Macomber, Rockinbeach notched his fourth win from nine seasonal starts and established a new lifetime best in the process. The homebred son of Rockin Image-Miss Sandy Beach is owned by Wilbur Eash and has now amassed $168,940 in lifetime purse earnings.

ANDERSON, IN -  Custom Cantab used an impressive gate to wire effort to capture the featured event of the evening, the second round of $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for three-year-old trotting fillies, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Wednesday, July 4, and lower the track record in the process. With Peter Wrenn at the lines, the pair trotted in 1:53, taking one fifth of a second off the previous track record for three-year-old fillies on the trot, a record previously held by Muscle Baby Doll, Sunshine Delight, and Meadowbrook Grace. The 1:53 victory marks the fifth track record that has been lowered over Hoosier Park's seven-eighths mile oval in 2018. Leaving from post eight in the talented field of ten, Wrenn wasted no time and sent Custom Cantab to the front through an opening panel in :27.3. Red Rose Swan and LeWayne Miller grabbed a pocket seat while Southerntucky and Dale Hiteman followed along intently in third. Custom Cantab lead the field through splits of :56.3 and 1:25.2 before ever feeling a threat from the rest of the field. Trace Tetrick had the post time favorite Meadowbrook Grace applying pressure first-over as the field rounded the final turn. Custom Cantab utilized a :27.3 closing quarter to put away Meadowbrook Grace and hold off all other challengers. Red Rose Swan used a ground saving trip to finish second while Meadowbrook Grace had to settle for third place honors. As the publics' second choice, Custom Cantab returned $7.40 to her backers at the betting windows. "She's a perfect filly to drive," Wrenn noted after the victory. "She seems to be getting stronger with every start and really just a pleasure to drive-she does everything you ask of her." After a win in the elimination last week, the Chris Beaver trainee made a clean sweep of the second round of the stakes to record her second consecutive Hoosier Park victory and fourth seasonal win from five outings. The daughter of Mr Cantab-Custom Model established a new lifetime best with the win and recorded her sixth lifetime win from 17 starts. Custom Cantab has now bankrolled $288,286 in lifetime purse earnings for owners Christopher Beaver, Donald E. Robinson, and RBH Ventures Inc.

ANDERSON, IN - Indiana-sired three-year-old pacing fillies were the featured attraction at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday, June 29 as the evening's 14-race card was highlighted by the $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final and $25,000 consolation for the three-year-old pacing fillies. Mildrix, with Sam Widger in the bike, used a strong stretch rally to prevail in a tight photo and pull the 15-1 upset in the featured event of the evening. Stopping the timer in 1:52, Mildrix established a new lifetime best and the victory was one of three winners on the program for Widger. Starting from the coveted rail position in the competitive field of ten, Mildrix was unhurried from the gate to get away a worrisome sixth. Elliot Deaton gave Neverforgetwhour her marching orders and she quickly grabbed the lead from post eight through the opening panel in :26.3. Virgin Eyes and Michael Oosting grabbed a pocket seat with Gate Speed and Brandon Bates followed along in third. Dee Rocks and Trace Tetrick, the heavy post time favorite, settled along the rail in seventh. Neverforgetwhour dictated middle fractions of :55.1 and 1:23.2 before being joined on the outside by Always Woggy and Peter Wrenn who had Dee Rocks and Trace Tetrick in tow approaching the final turn. As the field turned for home, Neverforgetwhour was bracing for the cavalry charge to the wire and a cavalry charge it was. Horses began to fan out across the track but the biggest threat was to the inside. Sitting last at the top of the stretch, Widger utilized the passing lane to find late racing room and Mildrix found a :27.1 final panel to get the win by a head. Two lengths separated the top seven finishers. Neverforgetwhour held on valiantly for second place honors while Let Me Fly Low and Ricky Macomber Jr. rallied well for third. Mildrix returned $33.40 to her backers at the betting windows. Trained, owned and bred by Kelly Goodwin, Mildrix recorded her first win of the season from three starts and second lifetime victory. The daughter of Real Desire-Didrickson has now amassed $57,100 in lifetime purse earnings. "We weren't expecting to go in the sires stakes in just her third start of the season but she raced really well the previous week," Goodwin mentioned after the win. "She can be a little tough, she has her own way of doing things but she's a nice filly and we're really happy with her." The upset trend continued in the $25,000 Indiana Sires Stakes consolation for three-year-old pacing fillies as Trace Tetrick steered Always Curious to victory at odds of 12-1. Stopping the timer in 1:51.3, Always Curious used a :27.4 closing quarter to get the win by nearly two lengths and establish a new lifetime best in the process.
