EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - With arch-rival Trolley opting to take the week off, Sutton had little trouble winning the Friday night harness racing feature at the Meadowlands, the $30,000 Preferred Handicap for trotters. Andy Miller had the gas pedal down from the start as the 6-year-old son of Donato Hanover-I Wanted Wings swooped past the field from post seven in the eight-horse field and made the lead at the quarter in a brisk :27.1. Sutton raced on an open lead from there all the way to the wire, as the pocket-sitting Pinkman, making his 2019 debut, offered little in the way of a threat. Sutton was 2½ lengths clear of Pinkman at the wire, with Golden Son finishing third. The Julie Miller-trained Sutton, who finished third in the 2016 Hambletonian, has now won half of his four 2019 starts after completing the mile in 1:52.3. He paid $4.80 to win as the 7-5 public choice. Lifetime, he's amassed 12 wins from 39 outings and earned $542,288 for owners Andy Miller Stable and Jason and Douglas Allen. BURKE DOUBLES IN SERIES ACTION: A pair of series for 3-year-old colts and geldings got underway on the Friday card and trainer Ron Burke had one winner in each. In the Walner Series for trotters, Burke scored with the Joe Bongiorno-driven Final Claim in 1:55.2. Final Claim, now two-for-two this year, scored as the 7-5 second choice as Burke's other trainee, even-money choice Goes Down Smooth, went off stride at the start and finished last. Final Claim                        -Lisa photo The Ray Schnittker-trained and driven Full Rights took the other division in 1:55.4 as the longest shot on the board at odds of 32-1. Full Rights                       -Lisa photo Burke hit the winner's circle in the Wiggle It Jiggleit Series for pacers with 9-2 fourth choice World On Edge in 1:54.1 for driver Yannick Gingras.

YONKERS, NY, Sunday, November 18, 2018-Dan Dube does not discriminate. He and Jack Vernon ($8.40) went the distance Sunday afternoon (Nov. 18th), winning Yonkers Raceway's $54,800 Open Handicap Trot. The previous evening, Dube and Gokudo Hanover wired 'em in the week's marquee pace. Back to 'Jack,' who won a several-horse harness racing scrum for the early lead, then gave nothing else a shot. The nine-horse feature (one came up ill) served as the opener of seven added-distance 'French' trots. From post position No. 4, Jack Vernon stuffed Gruden (Brian Sears) in behind, setting up shop before a 28-second opening quarter-mile. It was a :57.1 half and 1:26.3 three-quarters before invading 3-2 favorite I Know My Chip (Jim Marohn Jr.) made his second move. Wide early into a four-hole, I Know My Chip came first-up, but the bid was both brief and ineffective. Meanwhile, Jack Vernon was gone, widening past the 1:55.3 milepost and opening four lengths in and out of the final turn. He finished\ it off by 2¼ lengths, getting the mile-and-a-quarter in 2:25. Andy Ray (Jason Bartlett) offered late foot to wind up second, with Gruden, Lean Hanover (Jordan Stratton) and Lord Cromwell (Matt Kakaley) settling for the minors. I Know My Chip backpedaled to last. For second choice Jack Vernon, a 5-year-old Muscle Hill gelding owned by Mr. (Andy) Miller Stable and trained by Mrs. (Julie) Miller, it was his 10th win in 25 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $66, the triple returned $466.50 and the superfecta paid $2,828. Technical difficulties resulted in the cancellation of the 'New York, New York Double' for Sunday afternoon. The next Sunday matinee is Nov. 25th (post time TBA). by Frank Drucker, for Yonkers Raceway

CHESTER, PA -Jack Vernon had to overcome the tough first-over journey in the $18,000 featured trot at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon, but the fast Muscle Hill gelding not only did so, but came within a fifth of his lifetime best in stopping the timer in 1:53.2. Race favorite Tyson took command early, then submitted to a brushing move to control the pace by New Jersey Viking past the 27.3 opener. The new leader got a breather to the half in 57, but then Jack Vernon got underway under Andy Miller's handling, getting even with the pacesetter near the 1:24.4 ¾ pole, edging away on the turn, then withstanding the late comeback bid of Tyson by a half length. The victory was the third in a row for the Julie Miller trainee, who now has earnings of $191,248 for the Andy Miller Stable Inc. A pair of $14,500 diamondgaited events were also conducted on the "Trottin' Thursday" card at Philly. In the first, the Andover Hall mare Casa Palmera regained her winning ways, able to outclose Zlatan and Band's Houdini to win in 1:54 for her sixth win in 15 starts during 2018. George Napolitano Jr. handled sulky duties for trainer Ed Lohmeyer, who shares ownership with Dr. Patricia Hogan. Napolitano's trip in the other $14,500 event was much more adventurous -- you don't see a line like this too often: PP2 / x2oo / 3o / 2o / 2|1 / 4|2T. But such was the fate of the Napolitano-driven favorite Yuge, who broke on the lead late on the first turn, then recovered and pressured pacesetting second choice Crazy About Pat, who refused to surrender the lead under Eric Carlson's handling en route to a 1:55.1 triumph. Gilbert Garcia-Herrera trains and owns the veteran Crazed gelding, who in winning for the 36th time in his career boosted his earnings to $818,510. Tim Tetrick drove four winners on the Thursday card, cutting Napolitano's lead to 192-184 at the top of the Harrah's driver standings. From the PHHA/Harrah's Philadelphia

American Kronos was slowed a bit getting to the harness races, but quick to make a good impression. It might come as little surprise; she was viewed favorably since the time she was born. A 2-year-old female trotter, American Kronos was bred in Italy at Antonio Carraretto's Allevamento Kronos farm. Her sire Donato Hanover was 2007 Horse of the Year and dam Glide About was a New Jersey Sire Stakes champion and three-quarter sister to Dan Patch Award-winner Maven. In addition to American Kronos, Glide About's offspring include Treasure Kronos, a mare who won a Swedish Breeders Crown championship at age 3 and the prestigious Criterium Continental in France at 4. Standardbred bloodstock agent Perry Soderberg saw American Kronos a week after her birth and she was subsequently purchased privately as part of a package with now 3-year-old male trotter Zephyr Kronos by a group that includes Canadian breeders Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld. The Libfeld/Katz breeding partnership has received three consecutive O'Brien Awards for Breeder of the Year in Canada and a Dan Patch Award as Breeder of the Year in the U.S. in 2016. "For the last two or three years, Perry Soderberg has gone to Europe in the early spring on our behalf looking for mares and families that we thought would be good additions for our breeding program," Katz said. "One of his regular stops is Antonio's farm. He saw (American Kronos) when she was a week old. That's all she was when he saw her and he really liked her. "She has a great pedigree. She has a license to be a top individual. I think you see Europeans coming here and buying our bloodstock and there is no reason why we can't go over there and buy some of their bloodstock and bring it over here. I think it's clearly becoming a two-way street. And it's productive going both ways." American Kronos' development was hindered by transportation issues, but the Julie Miller-trained filly has won three of four races since debuting in August. Each of her victories was by a minimum of 2-1/4 lengths and her mark of 1:55.3 is among the season's best by a 2-year-old filly trotter on a five-eighths-mile track. On Thursday, American Kronos is the 8-5 morning-line favorite in the second of three Simpson Stakes for 2-year-old filly trotters at Harrah's Philadelphia. She will be driven by George Brennan, who guided American Kronos to her 1:55.3 victory in a division of the Liberty Bell Series on Sept. 20 at Philly. "Julie has kept her on a slower program, but she has certainly developed into a very, very nice filly," said Katz, who owns American Kronos with Libfeld and David Goodrow. "Julie has done a terrific job mapping out her program to make her life as easy as possible and let her continue developing. "She's performing very nicely and hopefully she will finish out the year that way and make a nice 3-year-old. That was the game plan all along and Julie has executed the plan perfectly. She deserves all the credit in the world." American Kronos' wins in addition to the Liberty Bell came in a conditioned race in her career debut and in a division of the Pennsylvania Stallion Series. Her only loss came when she went off stride in a division of the Keystone Classic. "She just didn't handle the track that day at all," Katz said of the lone miscue. "Otherwise, she's done everything very nicely." Said Miller, "We just took our time training her down. She has really developed and matured these last few months. We're very pleased with her progress." American Kronos is eligible to next month's International Stallion Stakes and Breeders Crown. She also is eligible to the Kindergarten Series. Katz said the connections are taking a wait-and-see approach to the filly's schedule. "We've tried to avoid mixing it up with the big girls to this point," Katz said. "We'll take it step by step. All the options are on the table, but we'll just go race by race and make our decisions as we go." by Ken Weingartner, for the USTA

Julie Miller endured some difficult moments with trotters Met's Hall and Prospect Hill during the winter and spring, but in the past two months the trainer's trepidation has turned to jubilation. Met's Hall, who struggled with health woes, heads to Saturday's C$169,183 Simcoe Stakes for 3-year-old male trotters at Woodbine Mohawk Park off a win in the Dr. Harry M. Zweig Memorial Open Trot and a second-place finish in the Hambletonian. Unraced prior to mid-July, the colt's $456,773 in purses rank 10th among all horses in North America despite tying for the second-fewest starts (six) of any horse in the top 50. "He was a bit of a challenge," Miller said. "We had to iron out some kinks on his road back. He's a little bit behind the curve, not starting as early as most of the others, but I couldn't be any happier with how he is racing. We just have to hope it continues. He's just fought through his issues and he loves to race." Prospect Hill, who battled maturity issues, heads to Saturday's $253,000 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship for 2-year-old male trotters at The Meadows with a five-race win streak since a third-place debut. He is the sport's fourth-richest 2-year-old male trotter, with $130,167, and tied for the fifth fastest, with a mark of 1:55. Coupled with stablemate Klutzy in the PaSS final, Prospect Hill is the 7-5 morning-line favorite. "He's been a pleasant surprise," Miller said. "He always had talent and ability, but would kind of lose focus and act like a typical juvenile out there on the track. He's got a refined body and nice gait, but he wasn't always thinking about trotting; he was all boy out there. But he's blossomed into a nice horse and done well." Met's Hall, owned by Stroy Inc. and Andy Miller Stable, came into 2018 with high expectations after winning five of 11 races last year and finishing second in the Breeders Crown for 2-year-old male trotters, but was plagued by soundness issues. Miller consulted with numerous veterinarians and revamped the colt's training program to get him back on track. "I'm very fortunate," Miller said. "I had three or four of the top vets in the country give me guidance. Andy and I kept talking about his training regimen. We put him in the (swimming) pool and changed up how we do things with a trotter. We had to try other things and it seemed to work." Met's Hall, with Andy Miller in the sulky, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite in Saturday's Simcoe Stakes, which is the final prep for the Canadian Trotting Classic (eliminations Sept. 8; final Sept. 15). The 11-horse field also includes You Know You Do (7-2), Lawmaker (9-2) and Alarm Detector (5-1). The race is part of a Woodbine Mohawk Park card that includes the Canadian Pacing Derby and Maple Leaf Trot. For his career, Met's Hall has won seven of 17 races and earned $723,908. The son of Cantab Hall-Met's Inn finished second to Atlanta in the Hambletonian before winning in a career-best 1:52 in the Zweig, where he led gate-to-wire and fought off a challenge from Six Pack before holding off Manchego by a nose. "We really targeted the Hambletonian with him," Miller said. "To get second, we were very pleased. And to race in the Zweig and hold off Six Pack and Manchego that last quarter, I was really proud of him. I don't think he prefers to race on the front, but he can. I think he's more of a grinder. But it's however the race unfolds." Prospect Hill, a son of Muscle Hill-Louise Kemp, was purchased for $130,000 at the Standardbred Horse Sale and is owned by Stroy Inc. He finished third to Peter Haughton Memorial winner Don't Let'em in his debut, but has since won five in a row -- a division of the Pennsylvania All-Stars followed by four divisions of the sire stakes. His most recent victory was by a neck, but the rest were by at least one length. "He leaves the gate so effortlessly," Miller said. "Andy said he's really comfortable on the front. I'm just happy he doesn't seem to have to exert a lot so far to race at this level. "And when a horse has come at him, he's responded well. Twice he's done that. I'm glad that he's game and gutsy. Instead of throwing in the towel, he wanted to put his head back in front and win. You like to think you teach them that, but I think it's all on their own. They have to want it and he wants it." The Meadows hosts all four Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship for 2-year-olds. On Sunday, the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono hosts the four PaSS finals for 3-year-olds. Morning-line favorites at Pocono are Phaetosive in the female trot, Kissin In The Sand in the female pace, Crystal Fashion in the male trot, and Dorsoduro Hanover in the male pace. by Ken Weingartner, for the USTA   

As racing fans across the globe peruse the headlines of the 2018 Hambletonian, they are not likely to come across the name Met's Hall very often. That's quite all right with part owner and driver Andy Miller, who is more than comfortable with the underdog role.   The 3-year-old colt by Cantab Hall-Met's Inn made headlines at age two, but has since been lightly raced. "We brought him back slowly after his 2-year-old season," Miller said. "He still had issues with soundness so we kind of had to take our time with him." He is in the first of two Hambletonian eliminations at The Meadowlands on Saturday afternoon.   Bred by Winbak Farm, Met's Hall caught the eye of yearling manager Jim Ladwig early on. "I thought he was a nice colt with lots of potential," Ladwig said. He went on to the Harrisburg Sale, where he was purchased for $132,000 by Stroy Inc, along with Andy and Julie Miller.   Despite some soundness issues that have hampered the colt thus far in his racing career, Miller says Met's Hall has a real big gait and a whole lot of speed. That speed was on display in his second career start, as he set the track record for 2-year-old colt trotters (1:55.1) at Harrah's Philadelphia in a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes event. He suffered his first defeat in a Peter Haughton Memorial elimination race, and had to settle for fifth in the finals after a less than desirable trip. He was also battling respiratory problems, which sidelined him for close to a month after the race.   He bounced back well to wrap up his freshman campaign with wins in the PASS Consolation, Kindergarten Classic, and The International Stallion at The Red Mile before finishing second in The Breeders Crown at Hoosier Park. "He didn't really get around the track at Hoosier all that well," Andy Miller said. "He got an inside trip and shook loose late and was really charging at the wire. We were very happy with his performance."   As a 3-year old, the jury is still out. "He's got a lot bigger and stronger from his 2-year-old season, but we had to take our time with him because of the soundness issues," Miller said.   "We pointed him to the Hambo, so hopefully that pays off." After a trio of qualifiers at The Meadowlands, he has improved in each of his three pari-mutuel starts in his sophomore season, with the latest being a win in 1:53 in the Reynolds Memorial at The Big M. When asked what sealed the deal in terms of entering the Hambo, Miller said the victory in the Reynolds was the dealmaker. Met's Hall drew post 3 in his Hambo elimination, and is 10-1 in the morning line.   The Miller team have been close to the Hambo Trophy in recent years, with Devious Man in 2017 (3rd placed 2nd) and Sutton in 2016 (2nd), but have yet to win the elusive crown. When asked what it would mean to win The Hambletonian, Andy Miller admitted it's the race every horsemen strives for.   As for Winbak Farm, it would be their third Hambletonian trophy. They won it in 2005 with Vivid Photo, and 2009 with Muscle Hill.   by Mike Bozich, for Post Time with Mike & Mike

WASHINGTON, PA, July 17, 2018 -- Prospect Hill captured his second straight stake with a persuasive 1:56.3 score, fastest in Tuesday's $184,588 Pennsylvania Sires Stake at The Meadows. The event for freshman colt and gelding trotters, known as the Hickory Pride, was contested over four divisions, with White Tiger, Demon Onthe Hill and Mass Fortune K taking the other splits. A $130,000 yearling acquisition for Stroy Inc., Prospect Hill broke his maiden with a front-end score in a PA All-Stars division. In the Hickory Pride, he quarter-poled to the front for Andy Miller and trainer Julie Miller and was an easy victor from there, downing early leader Amico Mio Bi by 1-3/4 lengths. The first-up Marseille finished third. "He seems to really like the front, and he really charges home strong when he's commanding the race," Andy Miller said of the son of Muscle Hill-Louise Kemp. "But it doesn't have to be that way. His first start he followed and was really good. He'll go to the next sires stake or the Peter Haughton. We haven't decided for sure." Anthony MacDonald, who drives White Tiger and participates in the colt's ownership through Thestable White Tiger Group, notes that the Muscle Massive-Just Not Into You gelding is unusually sensitive and responsive to sounds. "He hears a lot of voices," McDonald said. "As long as you get him on a day when he hears the right one, he's real class. I wanted to keep him a constant enough gear to where he wasn't startled. Around the last turn when I called on him, I figured he had enough racetrack. He's an incredibly fast horse. He has the Peter Haughton next." He listened to his better angels Tuesday, as he brushed wide through the lane to edge Ginger Tree Skyr by a head in 1:57, with Fashion Possessed third. Andrew Harris conditions White Tiger. Demon Onthe Hill launched his career by breaking in the PA All-Stars, but he was well behaved in the Hickory Pride, saving ground and firing late to score in 1:57 for Mike Milder, trainer Marcus Melander and owner Vicky Trotting Inc. Flippen Creek finished second, beaten 2-3/4 lengths, while Northern Express completed the ticket. "When he broke at Pocono last week, he just took a bad step in the last turn," Wilder said. "His connections felt he could have won in 1:56, and I don't think they were far off. He was on cruise control today. He showed a lot of manners and felt terrific." In the $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot, Call For Justice vaulted over $500,000 in career earnings with a 1:53.3 victory -- his second straight -- in the Lightning Lane. Swell Chap was second, 1-3/4 lengths back, with early leader Classicality third. Ron Burke trains the son of Justice Hall-Mika's Mazurka for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi, LLC. Dave Palone and Brian Zendt each piloted a pair of winners on the 13-race card.  THE MEADOWS DOUBLES WEDNESDAY PICK 5 GUARANTEE TO $10,000 The Meadows Racetrack & Casino has doubled — to $10,000 — the total-pool guarantee for its Wednesday, July 18 Pick 5 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative. While $5,000 Pick 5 guarantees are offered each card, The Meadows sweetened the pot when Tuesday’s Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a carryover of $2,687.07. In addition, Wednesday’s card includes a $7,500 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4 as well as a $2,534.60 jackpot in the Super High 5. Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (races 4-7), Pick 5 (races 10-14) and Super High 5 (race 14) is 50 cents.

WASHINGTON, PA, July 16, 2018 -- Twenty-eight freshman colt and gelding trotters will face a major test in Tuesday's $184,588 Pennsylvania Sires Stake at The Meadows. While most of the youngsters are impeccably bred and well connected, two from trainer Julie Miller's stable -- Prospect Hill and Klutzy -- appear particularly promising. The stake, known as the Hickory Pride, spans races 1-4, with Andy Miller driving both Prospect Hill (race 3, post 4) and Klutzy (race 2, post 3). First post is 1:05 PM. Also on Tuesday, The Meadows will announce the field for the $450,000 (est) Delvin Miller Pace for the Orchids. Adios eliminations are set for Saturday, July 21, with the final the following Saturday. Prospect Hill passed his initial stake challenge with flying colors with a 9-1/4-length romp in 1:56.4 in a PA All-Stars split. The son of Muscle Hill-Louise Kemp earned back a big chunk of the $130,000 he cost as a yearling. "The Muscle Hill colts are high priced, so we had to spend a little bit more for him," Andy Miller says. "He's done everything we've asked of him. He's very playful but versatile. He doesn't have to be on the front or come from behind. In the All-Stars, he trotted home in 28 handily. Before that at the Meadowlands, he followed a couple good colts and finished right close to them." Klutzy, of course, is derived from the Yiddish word for clumsy, and although the name doesn't suggest the grace and power you'd like to see in a young horse, Miller indicates the connections never considered changing it. "I don't put a whole lot into names," he says. ""That's what his name was, so we left it at that." Sure enough, after winning at first asking, the son of Cantab Hall-Upside Hanover -- a $55,000 yearling acquisition -- had a close encounter with a pylon in an All-Stars division and broke stride. His driver, however, exonerates him. "A pylon was leaning out onto the track," Miller says. "He got a little close to it, jumped away from it and made a break. It wasn't really his fault." However they fare Tuesday, the two youngsters are extending the extraordinary relationship between the Millers and the colts' owner, Stroy Inc., the nom de course of Natalia Stroy. A resident of Russia, Stroy visits the U.S. several times each year to touch base with the Millers and review her American operations. It's a warming note in this era of strained Russo-American relations that has injected an international flavor into the sport. The partnership now races a horse with a Yiddish-influenced name as well as the 3-year-old trotter Seviyorum, a Turkish expression that translates as "I love" or "I like." They also campaigned the top trotter Devious Man, who earned nearly $1.4 million for them. Nothing klutzy about that. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- It was another harness racing day at Buffalo Raceway on Wednesday night (July 11) and there was another track record broken as Amal Hall ($3.20) did the honors this time with a hard-fought neck victory in her $36,000 (approx.) division of New York Sire Stakes (NYSS) for the 2-year-old filly trotters.   Amal Hall (Andy Miller) went the mile in 1:59.0, blowing away the previous mark of 2:00.0 set last season by Plunge Blue Chip. It was the tenth track record either broke or tied at Buffalo Raceway in 2018.   Miller swept the NYSS early daily double as he guided With Out A Doubt ($3.70) to the win in 2:00.4 while Safe Word ($5.10) captured the final bracket with a 4-3/4 length decision in 2:01.0 with Jeff Gregory in the bike.   In the opener, Quincy Blue Chip (Jim Morrill Jr.) set the pace while Sensibility (Scott Zeron) and Amal Hall tucked into second and third respectively. Approaching the three-quarter marker, Miller tipped Amal Hall first over and began to chip into the lead turning for home.   Eventually, Amal Hall wore down the pace-setting Quincy Blue Chip and managed to stick a neck in front at the wire for the win. Sensibility took the show position.   "When I pulled her out, she kept going faster and faster," Miller said of Amal Hall. "I am happy with her performance. She's a nice filly."   Co-owned by the Andy Miller Stable, the Getty Stable and the Dumain Haven Farm, Amal Hall (Credit Winner-Arabella Hall) is trained by Julie Miller. The win was the second in three tries this season for Amal Hall who pushed her earnings to $47,058.   Miller made it two straight as he used the passing lane to give With Out A Doubt a three-quarter length score over Gobi Princess (Zeron) and Exotic Diamond (Morrill Jr.).   Summermusic'chapter (Dan Daley) set the tempo with splits of :30.0, 1:01.1 and 1:31.2 but was under siege as the field turned for home. With Out A Doubt dropped to the 'lightning lane' and was the quickest in the dash to the wire.   Co-owned by Ross Bonafield, Robert McCarthy and James Moran, With Out A Doubt (Conway Hall-Queen Of More) is trained by Erv Miller. The win was the first in three attempts for With Out A Doubt, now a winner of $29,140.   The final division was a stroll for Safe Word as she went right to the lead and never looked back in posting a solid 4-3/4 length triumph over Liquorstoreblues (Morrill Jr.). It's My Party (Sam Schillaci) took the show position.   Safe Word posted splits of :30.3, 1:01.4 and 1:32.0 and had no threats in cruising to the finish line.   Owned by driver/trainer Gregory, William Richardson, Martin Garey and Henry Wieseneck, Safe Word (Credit Winner-Fifty Shades) has now posted two wins in three starts, earning $44,321.   Miller finished the night with three wins as he drove Song Chapter ($5.00) to a victory in a $15,000 division of the Excelsior A Series with a mile of 2:04.0. Barn Tease ($5.10) took the other leg as Claude Huckabone Jr. steered her to the decision in 2:03.2.   In the $6,600 Excelsior B events, Ms O'Reilly ($12.60) took her race for Gregory with a 2:04.4 mark while Morganslovin Dream (Daley) trotted the mile in 2:04.2 and returned $5.10 in the victory.   Racing will continue on Friday night at 5 p.m. with a 10-race program scheduled.   For more information including the latest news, upcoming promotions, simulcast schedule, race replays, results and entries, go to   by Brian J.

WILKES-BARRE, PA -- Prospect Hill trotted the fastest mile by a two-year-old on a 5/8-mile track in 2018, 1:56.4, when he won his $30,000 division of the Pennsylvania All-Stars for colts and geldings Monday night at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono - a distinction he held by himself for 17 minutes, and then shared with Fashion Possessed after that one equaled the clocking in the very next race. The sire Muscle Hill produced five of the six winners in this All-Star event. A Muscle Hill - Louise Kemp colt who fetched $130,000 as a yearling, Prospect Hill was sent out between horses by driver Andy Miller to the lead before the 29 quarter, then rolled on in 59.2 and 1:28.4, nearing the latter station feeling pressure from first-over The Muscle Dog. But that one backed off in the middle of the far turn, and pocketsitting favorite Demon On The Hill lapsed from gait soon thereafter - however, all that may not have mattered, as Prospect Hill finished with a powerful 28 kicker to win by 9¼ lengths over The Muscle Dog. Julie Miller conditions the very promising youngster for Story Inc. Fashion Possessed was used most of a 29 quarter by driver David Miller to get by Marseille and set the pace in his division, and when favored Heavensdor Hanover misbehaved in the three-hole soon off the first turn, a virtual match race ensued, with middle splits of 59 and 1:27.4. Marseille inched up on Fashion Possessed in the lane, but he came up short by a head. A Fashion Farms LLC homebred making his purse debut after two winning baby events for trainer Jim Campbell, Fashion Possessed is a son of Possess The Will and Sweet Love who carries the names of the full brother-sister team of Emilie Cas El (the dam of Trixton), Conway Hall, Angus Hall, and Andover Hall not far back in his pedigree. For a field of six that had only four stay flat the entire 2:01.4 mile, the first division was very exciting, with six different leaders. It was the Muscle Hill - Formula Bluestone colt Expedition, who brought $230,000 as a yearling off a pedigree which had Broadway Schooner and Cooler Schooner only a couple of generations back, who proved most photogenic: he followed cover, seized a short lead after being left raw to the ¾, saw new leader Inisfallen fight back to retake the front, and then got by that one when it counted to win by a head in a 29 last quarter; favored Forecast, who brushed to the early lead, set a slow pace, then was passed nearing the ¾, came back for more in the stretch and was another ¾ of a length back in third. Brian Sears guided the winner to a victory in his first purse start for trainer Marcus Melander and the AMG Stable Inc. Sears/Melander/Muscle Hill teamed up in another division with Green Manalishi S, out of the mare Noga Morich, making his first purse start a winning one in 1:57.2 for Courant Inc. Green Manalishi S will hope to retain the racing luck he enjoyed in his initial contest: despite not the alertest of starts he still was placed third early, then moved into the pocket when pacsetter Klutzy broke soon after the 59 half. Green Manalishi stalked new leader The Rave (who had yielded to Klutzy after the 29 quarter, then after his inheriting to the lead hit the ¾ in 1:28), then went by easily in the stretch while defeating that one by 2¾ lengths, as might be expected of a horse who has stars such as Kit Lobell and Keystone Pioneer in his bloodlines. Marcus Melander picked up his third All-Stars training triumph (in four starters), and Muscle Hill his fourth siring credit, with Gerry, a $225,000 yearling out of the dam Viva Las Lindy (having Donerail in his pedigree likely boosted both his price and his potential), in 1:57.4 in his purse bow . Tim Tetrick drifted up to the lead past the 29.2 quarter with Gerry, rated midrace splits of 59.4 and 1:29.2, then powered home in 28.2 with little urging as the colt, now with "1"s at the end of all three of his lines, posted a ¾ length margin over Amico Mio Bi (who is, ironically, part-owned by Arden Homestead Stable of the --- Gerry --- family). The SRF Stable owns the equine Gerry, who overcame the outside post six here. Muscle Hill rounded out his super night with his son Don't Let'Em taking the final division easily in 1:57. Yannick Gingras, in his only drive on the card, left well and forced tucks in a 28.2 opener, then rated a 59.1 midpole clocking. The low-going trotter picked up the pace to hit the 3/4s in 1:28.1, and then despite bearing out a bit swinging out of the turn, kept to task with a 28.4 kicker, three lengths ahead of Goes Down Smooth. Out of the mare Passageway (who can trace back to Winky's Gill, Winky's Goal, and Supergill) and an $80,000 yearling, Don't Let'em is tied as the fastest freshman trotter so far, with his 1:55 mile in his debut since equaled by the colt Greenshoe and the filly Mother Bonnie (Andrew McCarthy's 2000th winner the other night). Jimmy Takter trains the good-looking trotter, now two-for-two in purse starts, for Brittany Farms LLC, Christina Takter, John Fielding, and Herb Liverman. Tomorrow night (Tuesday) two-year-old trotting fillies will take to the Pocono track in five divisions of All-Stars action. From the PHHA/Pocono Downs

I first went to work at a racetrack in 1965 as a teenager. I've always loved the game because it truly is the greatest game. People either understand this or they don't. You meet some of the most interesting people at the racetrack and the horses are magnificent animals. But as colorful as racing is, it also has its dark side. For the past 25 years, I have been battling with the Pennsylvania Racing Commission as an attorney. Every day I try to fight the good fight in a system that is fundamentally stacked against the horsemen. In hearings against horsemen, the Commission is the investigator, the prosecutor and the judge. To have any chance at a fair shot, you depend on the integrity of every person working for the Commission. People come to me all the time with grievances against the Commission. They say they know this or that about the unfairness and corruption of the Commission, but my answer is always the same: “Bring me some documentary proof of your claims and I will look into it. I can't go on what you think you know; I can only proceed based on facts.” But without fail, no one can ever produce any documentary proof. Then, in March of this year, a fellow came to me and said the Commission is finding positive tests and throwing them in the garbage, letting horses with illegal drugs in their systems get away scot-free. I gave him my standard response. A couple weeks later he brought me a stack of papers that actually verified his claims. When I saw these papers, which included lab reports and emails from Brett Revington, Standardbred bureau director for the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission, I actually got physically ill. They show that, indeed, horses had tested positive for even Class 1 drugs and those positive tests were basically thrown into the garbage can. Most of these races were at Harrah's Chester. The papers only showed this activity in harness racing. There is no evidence that it exists in Thoroughbred racing in Pennsylvania. In my opinion, this was a scandal of the highest order and it proves the outright corruption infecting the Commission. While I realized that this had to be exposed, I also realized that there are people who may use this information to justify taking the slots funding away from the horsemen. I had a moral quandary on my hands. Believe me, I wish I had never seen these papers. In Pennsylvania, a horse has its sample taken post race and sent to the Pennsylvania Equine Toxicology and Research Laboratory (PETRL), the official lab, for testing. If the sample has a suspicious result, Dr. Mary Robinson, the acting director of the lab, sends what is called a short-term hold report to the bureau director. If Dr. Robinson actually finds an illegal amount of a drug, she later sends a positive test report to the bureau director showing the name of the drug and its quantified level. In a major flaw in the system, the bureau director then has the discretion to actually call it a positive or not. If he doesn't wish to call it a positive, there is very little chance of anyone finding out. The system relies on the integrity of the bureau director.  I was particularly interested in an email from Mr. Revington that was part of the stack of papers given to me. It read: “Those holds with possible positives. I spoke with legal and they suggested not to pursue due to timing. I'm OK taking that direction as internal thresholds suggest not to call positive anyways.” Note the words “those holds.” That  suggests that there were multiple tests – plural – which were not revealed. This email raised several red flags to me. For non-therapeutic drugs, the Commission has always maintained that the slightest level of detection is the standard, meaning that any detected amount is called a positive. They consistently raise this argument in court. Had the Commission been untruthful in their court statements? Dr. Robinson is a master at finding insignificant levels of a drug that cannot possibly affect performance, and the Commission constantly punishes people pursuing their level of detection theory. I thought the best course of action was to confront Revington and ask for an explanation. I didn't want to show him everything I had, as I wanted to see his reaction first. So I brought him the above email and the short-term hold and reported positive forms from Dr. Robinson for the ninth race at Chester on September 11, 2016. In this $252,000 stakes race, a horse named Moonshine Hanover, trained by Christopher Beaver, had finished second and had earned approximately $50,000. There is no evidence Beaver ever knew his horse tested positive for the Class 1 drug oxycodone. There had been several other positives for oxycodone at Chester both before and after the race in question and all had the purses forfeited. Why hadn't this one been acted upon? When I showed Mr. Revington the documents related to this race, his face became ashen and he called Jorge Augusto, the Commission's attorney, into the meeting. When I asked for an explanation, they both responded in anger telling me it was none of my business and they didn't have to explain anything to anybody. They then forcefully suggested I get out of their office. Dr. Robinson's positive test report was dated September 21, 2016. Mr. Revington, who was hired in November 2016, later stated he didn't find out about it until May of 2017, claiming that that is why he did not proceed on the positive test. What happened?

It's like deja vu all over again for the connections of Hayden Hanover as they prepare to watch their colt in Saturday's C$1 million Pepsi North America Cup at Woodbine Mohawk Park. The Julie Miller-trained Hayden Hanover finished third last week in his North America Cup elimination, which was won by Stay Hungry, and will start Saturday's final from post No. 9. His elimination finish and draw for the final were nearly identical to his trip to Mohawk in September for the Metro Pace, when Hayden Hanover finished third in an elimination won by Stay Hungry and started the final from post No. 10. Despite his unfavorable Metro starting spot, which produced a track-low 4.4 percent winners last year, Hayden Hanover finished second to Lost In Time, so his connections might hope for the deja vu to continue. "Your starting point is only a position," said Miller, who will watch her husband Andy drive Hayden Hanover in Saturday's North America Cup final. "If Andy can maneuver a nice trip I hope we can take advantage of it. It's a deep field, a lot of nice horses, and I think it's going to come down to the trip." Hayden Hanover, a son of Somebeachsomewhere out of the millionaire Hana Hanover, has started three times this year and posted a second and a third. For his career, the colt has won two of 14 races and hit the board a total of 11 times to earn $303,992. He is owned by Pinske Stables and Jim Simpson. Last year, Hayden Hanover had the fastest winning mile of the season for a 2-year-old male pacer thanks to his 1:50 score in a division of the International Stallion Stakes. In addition to finishing second in the Metro, he was runner-up in the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship. Hayden Hanover remained in Canada following his North America Cup elimination rather than returning to the Millers' base in New Jersey. He also remained in Canada last year for the Metro. "Last year he had a good experience up there, so I'm OK with leaving him up there for the week," Miller said. "He's good in the fact that he takes care of himself. He's a good eater, he loves the field, and he's an easy horse to jog and train, so I'm not on pins and needles in that respect. I have a lot of confidence in how he is up in Canada." Although post No. 9 at Woodbine Mohawk Park has produced only eight wins in 156 pacing races this year (5.1 percent), Miller is happy for the opportunity to experience the North America Cup with Hayden Hanover. "It's an honor just to make the final," Miller said. "It's a magical day up there in Canada. If we can have some success in it, it will even be better. We just need a lot of luck, a lot of racing luck." Andy Miller hopes Hayden Hanover's versatility can be a benefit on Saturday. "He can leave, or like on Saturday, I raced him off of cover and he was good that way," he said. "It's not like he's one dimensional. It will be a great race." Lather Up, Stay Hungry and Wes Delight won last week's North America Cup eliminations. That trio has won 11 of 13 races this year to lead a deep group into the final. Lather Up, who is unbeaten in five races this year, is the 2-1 morning-line favorite. The 35th edition of Canada's richest harness race, showcasing the finest 3-year-old pacers on the continent, will go postward at 10:40 p.m. (EDT) and will be broadcast live on TSN2 from 10-11 p.m. The North America Cup undercard features the C$415,000 Fan Hanover for 3-year-old pacing fillies, C$370,000 Roses Are Red for pacing mares, C$250,000 Armbro Flight for trotting mares, C$266,000 Goodtimes for 3-year-old trotters and the C$100,000 Mohawk Gold Cup Invitational for older pacers.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - You could say Team Orange crushed it at the Meadowlands. The husband and wife team of Andy and Julie Miller - and 20-year-old son T.J. - all had a good time of it Friday night as the Julie-trained Double L Lindy won the feature, son T.J. won his first-ever Big M drive, and then for good measure, Andy scored in the eighth race with an 8-1 shot. Double L Lindy was superb in taking the $15,000, fifth-race conditioned trot. Driver Jim Marohn Jr. hustled the 5-year-old gelded son of Muscles Yankee-Love Lockdown to the top in :27.4. There was little stress for the eventual winner, only a far turn challenge from second-choice Misslarose, but it did not amount to much, as Double L Lindy reported home a safe three-quarter length winner as the 1-5 favorite over a fast-closing Pinkman. Misslarose finished third. The winner, who was coupled with Fly On in the wagering (Fly On broke on the far turn while racing in the pocket), returned $2.60 and completed the mile in a lifetime-best 1:52 for owners Little E LLC, Living The Dream Racing LLC and RBH Ventures Inc. Two races earlier, it was wall-to-wall winner's circle smiles as T.J. guided Lily's Swan Pond to victory in the GSY Amateur Driving Club's Hot To Trot Series in 1:55.2. "It was a great experience," said T.J. "And I'll be driving this summer in some more amateur races." To top off the night, Andy guided Clifton Beach ($19.40, 1:56.1) to victory lane in the eighth race conditioned trot. A LITTLE MORE: Lack of interest in the entry box led to lackluster wagering on the program. On the comparable card from a year ago, a total of 84 horses competed in 10 races - an average of 8.4 starters per race - with a total wager of $2,137,916. Friday night, only 66 betting interests competed over nine races (7.3 per race) with all-source handle totaling $1,681,527, a decrease of 21.3 percent from the year before. ... The team of trainer Linda Toscano and driver Tim Tetrick won twice on the card. ... The Late 20-Cent Jackpot Super High-Five failed to result in a single-ticket winner, upping the carryover to $250,090. ... Gates open at the Big M Saturday at 10:30 a.m. with a big Belmont Stakes simulcast crowd expected. ... Live racing resumes Saturday at 7:15 p.m. by Dave Little, for the Meadowlands  

Hightstown, NJ --- Julie Miller enjoyed a memorable 2017. The year began with her induction into the Iowa Harness Racing Hall of Fame, where she joined her father, Owen Julius, and continued through the season with a string of stakes wins and notable Grand Circuit performances. Miller’s stable last year included millionaire trotter Devious Man and Yonkers Trot champion Top Flight Angel, who helped the Iowa native set her career high for purses with $4.67 million, a total that ranked fifth among all trainers in North America, while posting a 22-percent win rate. Other stakes-winners for Miller last season included Hayden Hanover, who was the fastest 2-year-old male pacer of the year with a mark of 1:50, 3-year-old female trotter Overdraft Volo, 2-year-old female trotter Seviyorum, and 2-year-old male trotter Met’s Hall. Miller, who moved with husband Andy and children Tyler and Olivia to central New Jersey a dozen years ago, recently took time from her 2018 preparations to talk with the USTA’s Ken Weingartner about her past, present, and future. KW: You had a great year last year with a career high in earnings. What were your highlights? JM: I’d say winning the Beal (with Devious Man) and the Yonkers Trot (with Top Flight Angel). Those were the top two highlights. Top Flight Angel is coming back this year and Devious Man went to stud at Blue Chip. I’m looking forward to both those opportunities; seeing little baby Deviouses running around and having Top Flight Angel. KW: How do you think Top Flight Angel will come back? JM: He’s turned out at Walnridge right now. I went out and looked at him and I couldn’t believe the growth and maturity. He was already a nice, big, strong colt. I can’t wait for him to get back. That’s a hard division. It’s a hard division every year. The 4-year-old year is always difficult. We’re just going to stake him conservatively, but I’m really excited to have him back in the barn. KW: When is he coming back? JM: The end of February. I’m waiting that long so I don’t get him ready early. I’m forcing myself to wait. I haven’t even brought in Met’s Hall or Seviyorum yet. I know if I do, they’ll be ready the first of May and I don’t want them ready the first of May. I’m trying to hold my horses, literally. KW: Is this something new or is what you’ve always done? JM: It just depends on the situation; how many starts they had, how long the season was. If I turned out one early, I bring it in early. If I turned them out later, I bring them in later. They need that R&R. You can always tell when they come in because they’re fresh and have matured. It’s a real benefit. They need the time to develop. KW: What were you most pleased with from last year? JM: I would say Devious Man going over a million dollars. He’s the first horse that Andy and I have ever owned part of that’s done that. That’s pretty exciting. He’s up there with my horses. He had a lot of issues he dealt with and his consistency was amazing. To start racing in May in the New York Sire Stakes and Empire Breeders and go all the way to the Matron (in November) says a lot about a horse. I just can’t say enough about how proud I am that he put his best foot forward every time I asked. He came out fighting like a champ. Horses like that don’t come along all the time. KW: How many horses do you have right now and how many are 2-year-olds? JM: I have 60, with half being 2-year-olds. KW: I know it’s early, but how do you like your 2-year-olds so far? JM: Like you said, it’s early, but I like my group. My only frustration has been we had a lot of virus go through the barn, a lot of high fevers, in December. You can’t train a sick horse. So it was just basically getting them healthy. The main thing at this time of year is just getting the fundamentals down. I just want to get them gaited and make sure they have good mannerisms before we start honing in on the actual training. KW: Do you have a particular approach or program to get started? JM: I never put it in terms of having an actual program, but we have a basic model that we approach all the horses with. Of course when you have 30 yearlings, now 2-year-olds, you start with that model and then adjust it to each horse and what benefits them. Like I said, you get the fundamentals in, and then you start to fine-tune each horse’s program. KW: We had two bad weeks recently with the cold and snow. How does the weather affect your schedule? JM: Gaitway has done a heck of a job keeping the tracks open. But I’d say, compared to previous years, I’m a bit delayed. But it always seems to work out. When June comes around we all seem to be ready, whether you’ve been in Florida, New Jersey, or Canada. So I’m not fretting about anything just yet. If you want to be in the horse game, you better have a strong stomach because there are variables that you can’t control. But the play always seems to come together when you want it to. KW: Do you have 2-year-olds you really like at this point? JM: I play my cards close to my vest (laughs). I’d rather have people be pleasantly surprised than put horses up on a pedestal right now. I’m going to keep it to myself for now. I’m pretty optimistic about the first-crop 2-year-olds; they’re coming along nicely. I’ve been happy with them. KW: You recently were voted a director of the Standardbred Breeders and Owners Association of New Jersey. Why did you want to become a director? JM: It’s my passion for the racing. I don’t want to be on the sidelines, on the bench, complaining. I want to be on the court trying to make a difference. I’m really excited for the opportunity. I’m glad people thought enough of me to vote for me and I hope to contribute and be an asset. KW: You grew up in Iowa, and your dad was a trainer. Is he still training horses? JM: He trains with me every morning. He comes to the barn every day. He gave me my foundation in this sport and work ethic. I’m so blessed to have him here every day helping me out. I don’t care how old you are, I still ask him for advice. A lot of time people focus on the new ways, but sometimes if you talk to a veteran you get way better advice. KW: What was it like growing up? Was it all horses? JM: No. My parents had real jobs. My dad was a counselor for the state for rehabilitation people and my mom (Ellen) drove a school bus. (Horses) were a part-time Iowa thing at the county fairs. It wasn’t until I got older that we started racing at Quad City Downs and Fairmount (Park). That’s when I learned about that aspect of the business. It was good experience for me. KW: Did you always love the horses? JM: Always. I stopped playing some sports in high school because I wanted to be with the horses. It was more important to be with your horse than anywhere else. I have a passion for it. I don’t think you can do this sport if you don’t have a love for it. You eat, sleep and breathe it. And I like that. It doesn’t bother me a bit that it’s that way. KW: What other sports did you play? JM: Volleyball, and I was really good at softball, but that was a summer sport so I quit after eighth grade. I played volleyball all four years and I was a pom-pom girl (laughing). Do they even have that anymore? I think it’s just cheerleading. I varsity lettered in pom-poms and volleyball (laughs). KW: Did you know this was the career you wanted? JM: A hundred percent. I always wanted to drive and train. The more I experienced, the more horses I could sit behind, the better. The only problem is when you’re an 18-year-old girl and you want to go out on your own, there’s not many people going to give you a chance. So I thought I’d better go to college and get a degree. So that’s when I got my bachelor’s in science and graduated. After I graduated, my dad gave me two or three horses to take to Chicago to see what I could do. So in 1996 I took three horses to Sportsman’s Park and that’s how I started. Andy was driving and I was training. It just developed from a three-horse Iowa stable. KW: You had just gotten married, right? JM: Yep. I graduated in December of ’95 and we got married that spring. Andy quit working for Tex Moats as his assistant trainer and we moved. KW: Your dad has been a big influence on your life all along. JM: Completely. Him and my mom. When you grow up in Iowa, you learn a lot of horsemanship because you don’t have vets coming around all the time, shoers, feed people. We grew our own hay, we maintained our own track, my dad was the blacksmith, we shipped our own horses. You learn a lot if you’re doing the whole job. You fix the fence, you drag the track, you empty the manure spreader, you bail the hay. I guess that maybe doesn’t make you a better horse trainer, but you understand more. All those little things help, I think. KW: What else has contributed to your success? JM: I have a great staff. I attribute a lot of my success to the barn management and organization. We wouldn’t be as successful as we are if we didn’t have a great team. by Ken Weingartner, USTA Media Relations Manager
