Elkton, MD --- Post Time with Mike and Mike, presented by BetAmerica, continues their live remote season on Friday (Aug 11) with coverage of the 2018 Dan Patch Stakes, live from Hoosier Park Racing and Casino in Anderson, Indiana. The Dan Patch will feature champion Lazarus N who has taken North American harness racing by storm since coming in from New Zealand. His last start, a qualifier at The Meadowlands, was visually impressive as he won over Lather Up in 1:48.3 and had a final quarter of 25.3. He is a winner of 35 of 45 lifetimes starts and has raced at different distances throughout his career. Lazarus N is the richest Down Under Standardbred of all time with earnings of just over $2.6 million (US). He was Pacer of the Year at age two and three and has only missed the board once in his entire career. This will be the first pari-mutuel US start for the star New Zealander. Mike and Mike will have extensive coverage of The Dan Patch beginning at 8:30 p.m. via their website that will run for two hours. Jessica Otten, a normal correspondent for the program will be co-hosting the live remote for the first time. Otten, a native of Michigan, has worked with Mike and Mike since the inception of their live remotes three years ago. Since joining the Post Time team Otten has filled many roles including winners' circle analyst, paddock analyst, social media coordinator, and she also writes a monthly article for the program. Joining the trio on the program will be, Taylor Johnston. Johnston, a native of Ohio, has worked with Post Time with Mike and Mike for the last year working at various live remotes throughout their schedule. Johnston will be providing winners' circle and paddock reaction throughout the evening. Hoosier Park will have a lot going on throughout the entire Dan Patch Festival Weekend as they celebrate their 25th year hosting the big race. The first 2,000 guests to visit Trackside Club Centaur will receive a souvenir rocks glass set beginning at 2:00 p.m. Patrons on track can compete in a $10,000 Indiana Sire Stakes Handicapping Contest that will allow them to select the winners of races 5 thru 12 with the top handicapper receiving $5,000. For those bringing their family to the racetrack, there will be a plethora of things going on. There will be special giveaways from the winners' circle, outdoor fair foods, and much more. The festival continues on Saturday and Sunday with Kammy's Kause Music Festival featuring over 20 bands, free family activities, beer gardens, food trucks and more! Live racing on Saturday will commence at 6:30 p.m. In 2017, the Dan Patch Stakes All Bets Off fought off all challengers throughout the first three-quarters of the race, but when Sam McKee Memorial (2017) winner Check Six engaged him, it proved to be too much to handle. The race has a long storied history of being one of the year's top older pacing races. Mike and Mike will return to Hoosier Park on Hoosier Pacing Derby night in September.

Chester, PA --- De Los Cielos Deo ($2.20) remained undefeated with a 1:51.3 victory on Sunday (Aug. 5) at Harrah's Philadelphia, brushing from third with a circuit to go and holding his ground handily in the second of four Pennsylvania Sire Stakes events for 2-year-old pacing colts and geldings.   After yielding to Captain Victorious (Marcus Miller) and Odds On Boca Raton (Scott Zeron) on the first turn, Yannick Gingras brushed from third with the son of Captaintreacherous and Lisjune just beyond a :27.3 first-quarter sectional and continued on to rate a :56.2 half.   Up the backstretch, Odds On Boca Raton re-emerged and forced the pace to quicken once again, but De Los Cielos Deo held his ground to a 1:23.4 three-quarters split.   While Odds On Boca Raton kept grinding away, reaching the leader's neck upon cornering for home, De Los Cielos Deo remained steadfast to the winning post, prevailing by 1-1/4 lengths while under a Gingras hand drive. Odds On Boca Raton held second, half a length better than pocket foe Captain Victorious.   De Los Cielos Deo earned his fourth career win in as many starts for trainer Ron Burke and the partnership of Burke Racing Stable, Larry Karr, J&T Silva-Purnell & Libby and Weaver Bruscemi.   His 1:51.3 mile equaled his lifetime mark established at The Meadows in a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes event there in July. The winner's share of the $47,828 purse lifted De Los Cielos Deo's career earnings to $82,039.   In the $47,828 third division, Love Me Some Lou ($12.00) used second-over cover to nose out Semi Tough en route to a 1:50.4 victory, just one-fifth of a second shy of Rock N Roll Heaven's track record for juvenile pacing colts. Corey Callahan drove the son of Sweet Lou and Shark Lightning for owner John Cancelliere and trainer Tom Cancelliere.   The $48,228 first division saw Brian Brown trainee Proof ($6.00) push clear early and parry a first-over challenge from Ehrmantrout to lower his lifetime mark to 1:51.3. Driver Scott Zeron carried the colors of Diamond Creek Racing behind the son of A Rocknroll Dance and Ginger And Fred who now has won three of his four races to date.   Tim Tetrick homebred Crimson And Chrome ($9.40) upended odds-on favourite Sugar Factory in the $47,828 final division, recording a new lifetime mark of 1:51.4. Tetrick drove the Jim King Jr.-trained Sweet Lou-McSauna gelding.   As the fifth-race 20-cent Jackpot Hi-5 saw multiple winners cash for $408.98, Wednesday's (Aug. 8) Hi-5 will feature a $4,371 carryover. Post time for the 14-race card is slated for 12:25 p.m. Eastern.   by James Witherite, for Harrah's Philadelphia

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

As the connections of Courtly Choice stood in the winner's circle basking in the shadow of the Crawford Farm's Meadowlands Pace trophy, trainer Blake Macintosh reflected on his numerous Meadowlands Pace wins...on the training track of course.   "How many times do you go out and jog in the morning and pretend you win the Meadowlands Pace? I've won the Meadowlands Pace 30 times out jogging, it's amazing and a dream come true," Macintosh told Post Time with Mike and Mike's Jessica Otten after the race. The dream started with a gamble. The 3-year-old son of Art Major-Lady Ashlee Ann was supplemented into the 'Pace' for $60,000. "We didn't have any plans on doing it until we saw that Lather Up and Lost In Time were out", Macintosh told Post Time with Mike and Mike prior to the eliminations. The gamble paid off, as Courtly Choice swept passed to win the 40th edition of the "Pace' in 1:47.1. Bred by Winbak Farm, Courtly Choice is a half-brother to millionaire pacer and Breeders Crown champion, Betterthanchedder. The dam of Courtly Choice (Lady Ashlee Ann) is a hall of fame broodmare with offspring that have made over $4.5 million in racetrack earnings.   She was eligible to become a Hall of Fame broodmare by producing one millionaire and two winners of $500,000 plus individually. Along with Courtly Choice and Betterthanchedder, she is also the dam to BJ's Squall ($261,750 - 1:53.1s), Ashlee's Big Guy ($978,168 - 1:50.4f) and Artist's View ($795,750 - 1:49.4) among others.   "Lady Ashlee Ann was named after my daughter," said Winbak Owner and Founder Joe Thomson. "She was a fantastic filly born in the middle of June. She was small, and out of a stallion that was not very popular at the time, but she's made it to the hall of fame and has had a terrific production career," Thomson continued.   "Courtly Choice ended up being her last foal, as Lady Ashlee Ann died having him at the age of 22. Courtly Choice was raised by a nurse mare. "He was a nice horse," said Winbak Yearling Manager James Ladwig. "My yearling notes on him were all positive. He had a good yearling video. His action was one of the better looking foals from the mare. He was a great individual to leave a lasting legacy for hall of famer, Lady Ashlee Ann."   (Courtly Choice yearling video https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=ov1-hjRescM) In 2016, Courtly Choice was sold at the Lexington Select Sale for $60,000, and is now currently owned by the partnership of Hutt Racing Stable, Mac & Heim Stables, Daniel Plouffe, and Touch Stone Farms. After a pair of qualifiers, he made his debut at Woodbine Mohawk Park on June 30th, finishing second in a race restricted to two-year-olds. His first win was on August 2nd, 2017 in a New York Sire Stakes event at Saratoga, where he won despite being parked the mile in 1:53.1. It wasn't until his 3-year-old season however, that Courtly Choice thrusted himself into the spotlight by winning six of eight races, including the Crawford Farm's Meadowlands Pace in the event's third fastest time ever (1:47.1) in it's 40 year history. The Macintosh trainee has been supplemented to the Cane Pace, which takes place on Hambletonian day (Aug 4th) at The Meadowlands.   by Mike Bozich, for Mike And Mike Show

Starting from post one, the 5-year-old gelded son of Bettor's Delight made an uncontested lead, setting fractions of :27.1, :55.3, and 1:23.1, The Gareth Dowse trainee had to withstand a first over push from Christen Me N (Tim Tetrick), but was able to turn back the challenge en-route to a one length win in a time of 1:50.4. Christen Me N was second, while Makasi (Pat Lachance) rallied for third. It was the 12th career win for Nocturnal Blue Chip, his 5th of the season. He's won 3 of his last 4. The gelding triggered a Jackpot Hi-5 payoff of $250.86, which now has a carryover of $501.75 headed into Wednesday's program. by Michael Bozich, for Harrah's Philadelphia
