At a young age, Pat Woods knew that he wanted to be involved in harness racing in some capacity. While most get involved in the business because of family ties, Woods started out at as a fan. "I spent most Saturday nights in the summer running around the grandstand at Kawartha Downs when I was a kid," Woods said. "My neighbor always had a horse or two racing so we would go and watch." At fifteen years of age, Woods got a job working for George Davey Racing Stables looking after the broodmares, foals, and race horse layups. He went on to groom one of Davey's 3-year-old Sire Stakes contenders named Kendal Christopher. Woods spent 5 years with Davey before moving on to the breeding side of the business. After one year at Kendal Hills Stud Farm, Woods was hired by Dave Heffering's Tara Hills Stud. During that time, he graduated from the Canadian Horseshoeing School. "I was fortunate enough that David Heffering gave me a leave for 4 months, and time to apprentice after I graduated while working for him," Woods said. "He has always been a supporter of industry people bettering themselves. He was very instrumental in me being where I am today in this industry." Wood's went on to manage Oak Knoll Stables in Campbellcroft, Ontario for six years before joining Winbak Farm's Ontario location as their Farm Manager. Woods knew he made the right decision after traveling down to the Maryland Farm to meet with Owners Joe and JoAnn Thomson and General Manager Garrett Bell. "I was attracted to want to work for Winbak for a few reasons," Woods explained. "They have bred and raised some of the best horses in the sport like Muscle Hill, Bettors Delight, and Rainbow Blue. They also have one of the best stallion rosters at the Ontario farm. It will give me a chance to be a part of improving racing in North America." Woods has stayed plenty busy in his new role, especially during the busy sales season. "At the current time, we are very busy prepping the London Select Sale horses. Our days are filled with grooming, standing, cross tying, bathing, and exercising the yearlings," Woods explained. "We have visitors coming to the farm frequently to inspect the yearlings before the sale this time of year. We are also weaning foals and catching up on the maintenance of the farm before we are back in breeding season again." Woods and his staff focus on showcasing the yearling's manners, athleticism, and conformation for the buyer. They also spend a lot of time with hands on work, which include brushing and handling the yearlings to earn their trust. As far as what the future holds for Woods, it's actually pretty simple. "Enjoy life, spend time with my kids and keep Winbak Farm of Canada running smooth," Woods said. "Larry and Jackie Drysdale left things in great order here. They were such wonderful people to work with. I cherish the friendship that I gained working with them." By Mike Bozich, for Post Time with Mike and Mike

In this edition of Horse Highlight, Post Time with Mike and Mike teams up with New Vocations to feature the beautiful 2010 Somebeachsomewhere colt, "Camvault" who was donated by Wendy Cameron. Cameron bred and raised Camvault as she adored him dearly. "Camvault was perhaps one of the best-bred colts we have bred and foaled at our farm. He is definitely our largest foal and is absolutely the best looking foal/horse we have owned. I say one of the best-bred because we have his full brother, Cammikey, who was very successful racing for us. "Cam resembles more of his dam, Always Cam and Vault more like his sire, Somebeachsomewhere." shared Cameron. When breeding a horse, the best part about it is naming the foal. Camvault has a meaning behind his name as Cameron took time to explain, "Camvault originates from our family's origin of the "Cam " name. The original Cam was named Cambev after our company's original name, Cameron Beverages. "Later our company was named Cameron Coca-Cola. Vault was a popular Coca-Cola brand at the time, so Camvault was born, it also happened to be my mother's favorite soft drink and she names our foals." Starting into his two-year-old year he had a few setbacks. He struggled with some health issues when he began training as a yearling. He had stifle surgery as a two-year-old at Ohio State University, where they placed screws in his stifles; he raced with no issues after that. "He was very fortunate to have Dr. Alicia Bertone and had a very successful outcome." proclaimed Cameron. "He trained back and began racing as a three-year-old. Unfortunately, his size, confirmation, and strength did not overcome his nervousness on the track. "We decided to retire him and take him home. I continued to work with him at our farm with aqua treading, lunging, and daily turnout. In addition, he spent 5 months with Julie Allison learning to be a riding horse." Cameron added. Camvault had a short racing career with only 12 starts and putting in over $15,000 in the bank. While being in contact with Cameron you could tell how passionate she was about not only Camvault, but every horse that comes into her care. "She wants nothing but the best for them on and off the race track. It was a difficult decision for us to part with Vault, however, he matured a great deal not being on the track and we felt he needed a more productive life and hopefully someone who can give him a wonderful home," stated Cameron.   "He seems to really like riding a lot. He is a little pushy on the ground and needed a reminder in manners, but now is doing excellent. He will make a fantastic show or trail horse." stated Winnie Nemeth, Standardbred Program Director. "It was great that Cameron saw the benefit to continue training Camvalut as a riding horse to help him excel in his next career. This will be essential in helping him find the perfect adopter," said Nemeth.   Camvault will be soon posted for adoption; he is a part of the "Back to School" special. Originally the adoption fee would be $800, but through the end of September, you will get $200 off.

Without question, Tom Pollack and Jeff Cullipher's filly pacer Wisdom Tree has been dominating throughout much of her sophomore season. She has won nine of twelve races as a 3-year-old, with five of those wins coming against New York Sire Stakes competition. She also has a Grand Circuit triumph to her credit. Bred by Winbak Farm, Wisdom Tree is out of the first crop of Betterthancheddar, and out of the dam Wisdom. "She (Wisdom Tree) was a half-sister of a horse I owned with Randy Bendis called Rich Wisdom," said Pollack. "We had some success with him, and he ended up getting hurt." Rich Wisdom won over $142,000 as a two-year-old. "We saw Wisdom Tree was kind of a looker out of a new sire (Betterthancheddar) and we decided to take a swing." Pollack, along with co-owner Jeff Cullipher purchased Wisdom Tree at the Lexington Select Sale for $28,000. Things didn't start well for the Jeff Cullipher trainee. After a pair of winning qualifiers, she had to wait until her 8th career start to break her maiden in a New York Sire Stakes event at Monticello. "We knew she had a ton of talent, but were concerned about her getting around the smaller ovals," Pollack said. She went on to win 2 of her next 3 starts, but finished a tough luck 7th in the NYSS Finals at Yonkers. "We drew the 8 post, and she was actually loaded with pace in the lane," said Pollack. "Her driver that night (Tim Tetrick) said she could've easily finished 2nd or 3rd if she could've stayed on her feet. She was just going too fast." As great of a 3-year-old season as she has had to this point, it didn't get off to a good beginning. "She got kind of sideways behind the gate in her first start of the season, and I thought 'oh man' here we go again," said Pollack. "Jeff (Cullipher) assured me this was different. Then she went on to catch fire." She went on to win 7 of her next 8 races, including the Nadia Lobell, a Grand Circuit event at Hoosier Park. As far as what's next, co-owner Tom Pollack maybe eying a potential Breeders Crown appearance if all goes well. "We have actually kicked around discussions of supplementing her to the Breeders Crown. We are thinking about it," said Pollack. Her next start will be at Yonkers for the last leg of the New York Sire Stakes, followed by the finals a few weeks later. She is staked to three events at Hoosier Park through October (Pegasus, Circle City, and the U.S.S Indianapolis), as well as the Matron in November at Dover Downs. Wisdom Tree's half-sister Smart Girl will be selling (Hip #239) at the upcoming Lexington Sale in October. by Mike Bozick for the Mike & Mike Show

This month in the New Vocations Horse Highlight we are featuring a well-known, classy horse through the Midwest, Virgil, donated by Tyler and Cassie George. As a racehorse, Virgil, the beautiful black gelding stepped onto the race track 95 times, making his way to the winners circle 18 times, rolling in over $200,000 to the bank. When talking with previous connections, Cassie George, I could tell he was more than just a racehorse to him, he was a pet to her. "Virgil is definitely a girls horse; he loved me unconditionally but wasn't a fan of my husband or the vet," Casie chuckled. Virgil spent most of his time racing in Indiana, traveling over to Ohio here and there and made a trip out East a few times. Casie's favorite memory while racing Virgil is when he won the Ohio Ladies Pace final during Jug week at the Delaware County Fair. "When he won the ladies pace final, he sat last the whole mile and I still don't even know how he won, but he always finished with all he had, and that day he didn't disappoint, outside post and all. Even though the purse was small, watching that replay over and over again makes me smile every time. He made a lot of people happy that day and I think he knew it," explained Cassie. It was a very tough decision to make when it came time to place Virgil with New Vocations because Cassie loved having him in the barn, he was that one horse she looked forward to seeing every morning when she got there. But she knew to retire him was for the best. "He fractured his knee about two years ago, we rested him and tried him again but he was never the same 'Virgil.' He just wasn't being competitive anymore. One training day he just didn't seem himself in between training trips, so I completely stripped him, gave him a bubble bath and told Tyler not to worry about going a back with him again. I just didn't want to see him struggle," stated Cassie. "I know this is a business and about making money, but to me, it isn't everything, I want my horses to be taken care." Virgil is the kind of horse that always needs to have a job, the New Vocations program is perfect for him, as they are in search of a new home for him to give him a second career. Cassie said, "He loves having a job. He needed to have a purpose he wasn't quite content with being a pasture pet like my other two retires." "Virgil was a quick learner and loves being a riding horse. He has a great personality and seems to have a permanent smile on his face," stated Winnie Nemeth, Standardbred Program Director. Virgil will be posted very soon for adoption, be sure to visit www.newvocations.org and check out all of the amazing athletes we have for adoption, remember, make your next horse an ex-racehorse! by Jessica Otten, for Post Time with Mike and Mike

Budding freshman filly Zero Tolerance (Heston Blue Chip-Feelinglikeastar) picked up her third win in five career starts on Friday night, when she dominated a field of six in the $30,000 Geers Stakes for 2-year-old female pacers at Tioga Downs. She brushed to the top at the quarter and never looked back, completing the mile in 1:52.1 under minimal Dave Miller encouragement.  The ownership group of Val D'Or Farms and Ted Gewertz leaned on a familiar lineage when purchasing the filly for $30,000 at The Lexington Select Sale in 2017. Her dam (Feelinglikeastar) is a full sister to Hall of Famer Rainbow Blue, who is the dam of another Joe Holloway trainee Rainbow Room (p, 1:51.2 F, $467,880). Bred by Winbak Farm, Zero Tolerance is out of sire Heston Blue Chip's (p, 1:48 F, $1,781,881) first crop. "Zero Tolerance was a great looking filly," said Winbak Yearling Manager Jimmy Ladwig. "She was very racy and I loved her." The Holloway trainee started her career with a pair of successful qualifiers at The Meadowlands, in preparation for a June 29th pari-mutuel debut against fellow freshman fillies. She went on to win in 1:51.3 (:27.1 last quarter) as the prohibitive favorite. "She came off the gate and got away 5th, and came a tremendous three-quarters," said Holloway. "She came home good but she had to because Yannick got free with St Somewhere so we had to go on, but I was very pleased with that." St Somewhere did avenge that loss, however, in the very next meeting between the two, a Sire Stakes event at Tioga. "We got caught. St Somewhere was on her back," Holloway explained. "She managed to get out and catch us at the wire but once again, it was a strong back half and a strong last quarter." Zero Tolerance's next scheduled start was another New York Sire Stakes event, this time at Yonkers, where she was scratched sick.  She was right back in the box the very next week however, for her most recent outing, an overnight affair at Harrah's Philadelphia. She was sharp on the front end that afternoon, winning in 1:53.1 under minimal urging.  Going into her race Friday night, Holloway was optimistic. "She's been training good. I know the Yonkers race was for a lot more money, and I wish I was going for that, but we stayed away from going to Canada, and stayed away from going on the half, so these types of races will get us into September." That strategy paid off as Zero Tolerance coasted to her third career triumph.  When asked what's down the road for Zero Tolerance, Holloway confirmed her first big start will be The Kentucky Stallion Management at Hoosier Park. From there, she will head to The Red Mile, followed by the Breeders Crown, and then back to The Meadowlands for the Three Diamonds Stakes.   As far as her ceiling goes, Holloway once again is optimistic. "Dave Miller called it early on. He thinks she is as good as Rainbow Room was at this time last year. So far, she hasn't proved that she isn't." by Mike Bozich, for Post TIme with Mike & Mike
