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.

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

Northfield, OH -- Northfield Park regular Greg Grismore scored his 7,000th career victory aboard Nehemiah on Tuesday (May 29) night. Grismore and Nehemiah didn't get the easiest of journeys to score his milestone victory. Nehemiah was parked every step of the mile and had to sustain a three-wide bid around Lucky Match (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) before clearing at the top of the stretch and fending off late pressure from Dundee Dan (Wes Hershberger). Nehemiah ($17.00) is owned by Ohioans Rosy Weaver (Beach City) & Curtis Grismore (Northfield). Weaver also trained the winner. After the race Grismore said, "It's a huge thrill doing it on my son's horse. It was probably the biggest thrill of my career." Grismore grew up in Pandora, Ohio, and started in the business as a young teenager working with his father, Mark. He has driven at many racetracks throughout his illustrious career including stints at tracks on the East Coast. Grismore scored his first driving victory in 1987 and to date, 2007 was his winningest season with just over $5 million in earnings. He is second in all-time victories at Northfield Park, behind only Aaron Merriman. Grismore's biggest scores include victories in the Cleveland Classic (Won The West, 2007) and the Jugette (Good News Lady, 2008). By Michael Carter, for Northfield Park
