Rainbowinthewest powered to the lead from the rail and won as she pleased in Friday’s harness racing co-feature at The Meadows, a $9,400 Filly & Mare Conditioned Trot. Although Rainbowinthewest could have released a pair of early challengers, trainer/driver Brian Zendt would have none of it. He kept the pedal to the metal and the 6-year-old daughter of Andover Hall-Miss Milwaukee responded, scoring in a sharp 1:54.3. Matterlei finished second, 2-1/2 lengths back, with Impulse Buy third. Brocious Racing  Stable and Lone Wolf Stable campaign the winner, who boosted her career bankroll to $168,120. In Friday’s other co-feature, a $9,400 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace, Dark Force encountered a surface downgraded to sloppy.

Dave Palone collected four wins and Hall three on the 13-race card. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday when the program features an $8,068.54 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5.

Freehold, NJ --- Melady's Monet began his 12-year-old harness racing season on a winning note Friday afternoon, taking the Preferred Handicap trot at Freehold Raceway.   Making his first start since December 11, he was sent off as the 3/1 second choice in the field of eight. In the early stages, he grabbed cover from favored The Veteran, who left to his direct inside. As soon as The Veteran cleared to the front, just before the opening quarter, Eric Abbatiello took the lead with Melady's Monet.   As they rounded the final turn, Melady's Monet continued to hold sway, but The Veteran loomed menacingly from the pocket. Entering the stretch, Dan Dube ripped The Veteran off the pylons and took his crack at the leader. However, he couldn't get by Melady's Monet, who reported home a half-length in front. The final time was 1:57.3.   This was the 68th win in the long and successful career of Melady's Monet, who pushed his earnings to $1,714,278 with this win. Although he's won top races up and down the east coast, this was his first win at Freehold since 2012. He's owned by Melady Enterprises and trained by Hermann Heitmann.   Friday's card also featured the second leg of the Vinny Fusco Jr Memorial Pacing Series. Duck N Roll won the lone split of the first division, for horses with a TrackMaster Horse Rating between 68.00 and 71.50. She rallied wide in the stretch to get up for the 8/1 win, for owner John Foti, trainer Izzy Estrada, and driver Luke Hanners.   The second division, for horses with a TrackMaster Horse Rating between 71.50 and 75.00, was split into two races. Western Showgirl surged from behind to win the first race, for owner Michelle White, trainer Robert Ginsburg Jr, and driver Dan Dube.   Tall Poppy N won the second race, in dominant style. She swept both of the first two legs, and will look for a final win next week. George Brennan had the winning drive, for owner Curtin Anz Stable and trainer Kelvin Harrison.   Live racing continues at Freehold on Saturday, with a 13-race card starting at about 12:30 PM. The card is headlined by the second leg of the Harold Kelly Memorial Pacing Series.     Publicity Freehold Raceway

Bertha Vanation, fresh from a 25-1 upset at the head of the class over a gutty Brighten Your Life; and Velocity McSweets, who had to settle for third that evening in a blanket finish as the prohibitive favorite, get a rematch in Saturday night’s $6,200 Filly and Mare Open Pace. There will be 13 races presented under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post set for 4:55 p.m. with the main harness racing event scheduled as the second event on the evening. Bertha Vanation is a 6-year-old daughter of Voracious Hanover who races for Cathy Dessert and is reined and trained by Nick Roland. She was able to leave into a perfect pocket trip in that last score and prevailed by a nose over Brighten Your Life, who carved out all the fractions. The latter is a Shark Gesture mare who led every step but the last and will be looking for some revenge this weekend. Tyler Gunderson and Jenna Cornelison own, Cornelison trains and will once again be handled by Tony Succarotte. Velocity McSweets will be looking for some revenge after getting the worst of things while beaten only a neck for the whole thing last time. Jennifer Sabot owns and trains and Cordarius Stewart handles the lines. Leaving from the outside slot in that last assignment, Velocity McSweets sat behind slow fractions, put in a big move around the final bend but could not quite reach the leaders that evening. Completing the cast are Delightfully Wild, who will be seeking her third straight victory for owners Richard Morita and David Yamata and trainer Jessie Pacheco; and Robert Staats winner Paloma Ruiz for Melinda Smith and driver/trainer Jake Cutting. The co-featured conditioned trot carries a $5,500 purse and brings out a solid cast consisting of Major A-Mar, MD Magic, Teachmehowtotry, Mshindi and Flameon.   Big Guy, Lassena give Svendsen pleasure drives Mooney Svendsen had a couple of nice winners in the sulky last week, guiding Royale Big Guy to a convincing victory in the Open II Pace and sitting behind the mare River Lassena when she waltzed home by 14 lengths in a conditioned affair. Royale Big Guy is a 7-year-old son of Ashlee’s Big Guy who carries the banner of Scott Ehrlich and takes his lessons from Kathie Plested. After suffering some traffic behind the streaking Allmyx’sliventexas in the January 3 Open, he appreciated the class relief last time around and responded with a length score in 1:53 flat. “This horse has never gone a bad mile for me,” Svendsen noted. “I was pretty confident going into that last race, so I just let him settle and then came first over with him on the backside. He was awfully strong to the wire.” Svendsen had some idea what he had when he climbed behind the 4-year-old distaffer River Lassena for Mark Anderson and Gordie Graham, but wasn’t prepared for the overwhelming mile the daughter of Riverboat King was going to give him. After sitting the pocket early, he was out and moving with her to final bend, took complete control of things from that point and romped to the line with 14 lengths back to the nearest rival. “I’d never driven her before, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect,” Mooney noted. “All I did was hit the wheel disk once and she absolutely took off. I said to myself that Andersen has another good one. “As far as the margin goes, I did drive one once that won by 18 lengths, but this was certainly close and quite a ride.” No kidding.   By Mark Ratzky, publicity – Cal Expo Harness

WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 15, 2021 — To young harness racing driver Drew Monti likes his home in Buffalo, but he also likes working regularly. Thus, the 26-year-old reinsman has decided to drive at The Meadows, even as he continues his regular schedule at Buffalo Raceway. Monti made his Meadows debut Wednesday and had four assignments the following day, although he’s idle Friday. With Buffalo now racing Wednesday and Saturday, Monti expects  to work at The Meadows each Thursday and Friday, with Wednesday doubleheaders a possibility. Monti has been something of a phenom in western New York, where he’s won a total of three driving titles spanning Buffalo Raceway and Batavia Downs. He debuted in 2012; the very next year, the Upstate New York Chapter of the United States Harness Writers Association named him its “Rising Star.” From 2017-2019, he recorded at least 260 wins per season with a UDR of at least .301 each year. He’s won more than $11 million in purses. For all that, Monti knows that landing assignments at a new track with a deep driver colony can be a challenge. “I have a couple friends at The Meadows, a couple of ‘ins,’ and it’s not too far from home, so I thought I’d give it a try,” he said. Monti can make it to The Meadows from his home in about two hours. It’s a commute that might intimidate some, but he’s used to an even more demanding travel schedule. “I commuted to Plainridge last year — that’s six hours each way for me,” he said. “So this is a breath of fresh air.” All that highway time didn’t seem to affect his performance, as he finished second in the Plainridge driver standings. He’s looking forward to a similar outcome at The Meadows as well as networking opportunities. “I like it here,” he says. “The track and barn area are good, and they race a full schedule year round. So far, there’s nothing not to like. “I love being able to go to new places. That helps you sharpen your skills and meet new people who may help you down the road. That’s never a bad thing.” By Evan Pattak for The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association

Grove City, Ohio - Street Gossip was a model of consistency in 2020, hitting the board in all eight of his starts earning him 2020 harness racing Ohio 2-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year honors. Street Gossip, the son of Cash Hall out of the Yankee Glide mare The Young Princess won four out of his eight races and collected a pair of second- and third-place finishes for trainer Virgil Morgan Jr. and owner Carl Howard and the Jesmeral Stables, earning $171,761. Street Gossip was purchased in July by Howard and Jesmeral Stable after a third-place finish in a leg of the Ohio Sires Stakes. "I saw him racing in his first sire stakes race at Northfield Park. He was very competitive," Morgan said. "I was elated once we got him. To see how good gaited he was and that we really had something to work with." Morgan credits the horse's consistency as the reason he was named the 2-Year-Old trotting colt of the year. "He was a model of consistency. His body of work throughout the year was the difference. He was ultra-consistent." Street Gossip will be honored during the Ohio Harness Horsemen's Association's virtual award show on January 16, 2021. The awards show is scheduled to air on the OHHA YouTube channel at 7:00 PM. Frank Fraas ffraas@ohha.com 614-221-3650

Alexa Skye came to Yonkers Raceway with four straight harness racing victories and left having made it five in-a-row, taking Thursday night's featured $30,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap Pace in impressive fashion. The 4-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere stopped the teletimer in 1:52 flat.   Driven by Todd McCarthy, Alexa Skye left quickly from post three and cleared Feelin Red Hot (George Brennan) for the lead prior to the 27 4/5 opening quarter. Alexa Skye, who was the 8-5 second choice, was well-rated to the half, posting that fraction in 56 3/5, and then picked up the tempo to 1:24 2/5 at three-quarters as New Zealand imports Seaswift Joy (Andrew McCarthy) and Bettors Heart (Jason Bartlett) began to advance first-up and second-over, respectively.   On the far turn Seaswift Joy was able to drop into the pocket as Feelin Red Hot retreated, leaving Bettors Heart to try and close in two-wide through the stretch drive. Alexa Skye would have none of that, though, as she finished strongly through the lane, widening late to prevail by 2 1/4 lengths. Bettors Heart, who was the 3-2 choice, was the runner-up, and Seaswift Joy held third over a rallying Siesta Beach (Scott Zeron).   Brett Pelling trains Alexa Skye for owners Blue Chip Bloodstock Inc. and John Lengacher. Prior to tonight, Alexa Skye won two overnight races at the Meadowlands in December, then slid over to Freehold Raceway where she went from last at the half to first at the wire in two editions of their Fillies and Mares Preferred Handicap on December 26 and January 1. Alexa Skye, who returned $5.50 to win, now has a record of 11-4-1 from 31 career tries, and she has earned $131,140. The Alexa Skye-Bettors Heart exacta paid $12.40 and the 3-5-4 trifecta kicked back $21.20.   In other wagering developments during the card, the $1 Pick 6 paid $1,572.20 for the combination of 8/2/3/5/3/3 and the 50-cent Pick 5 of 3/5/3/3/3 returned $324.25. Those two wagers, along with the Pick 4, feature a reduced takeout rate of 20 percent for 2021.   Live racing at Yonkers Raceway resumes Friday night at 7:15, and the schedule continues on a Monday-Friday basis throughout the year.   Yonkers Raceway

WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 14, 2021 -- Hammered down to 1-2 despite post 9, All Day Sunshine made all that money look smart as she overcame a brutal first quarter to win her third straight in Thursday's harness racing feature at The Meadows, a $9,100 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace. Morning Shadow stretched All Day Sunshine to a 26.4 opening panel before the 4-year-old daughter of Sunshine Beach-Mustang Kensley could cross over.

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - It was going to be difficult to match the excitement and bettor enthusiasm of Saturday, Jan. 2 at The Meadowlands when a harness racing $46,731 carryover and $150,000 guarantee led to a total 20-cent Pick-5 pool of $360,948. Last Saturday (Jan. 9), there was no carryover off which the Pick-5 pool could build, so track management and The Standardbred Owners Association of New Jersey got together to 'seed' the pool with $25,000 and give it a $100,000 promise. What resulted was a total pool of nearly $200,000 that for a second consecutive Saturday served as the catalyst for what was a huge night of betting at The Big M. "What a start to the year," said Meadowlands' Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Jason Settlemoir. "Last week's 20-cent Pick-5 was seeded with an extra $25,000. The 'new money' of $170,758 brought the total pool to $195,758, and the winning payout was $25,057 for each 20-cent winning ticket. "The $25,000 seeding was our way to thank the horseplayers for their enormous support of The Meadowlands. Their wagering has made The Big M the most popular nighttime signal of any breed in horse racing, with our Saturday Winter Meet handle averaging over $4 million. The Meadowlands remains an industry leader in lowering takeout and offers six player-friendly wagers with an extremely low 15 percent takeout every night. We are abundantly grateful to horseplayers around the world for their business." Speaking of business, the last three Saturdays have seen plenty, with big increases over the corresponding cards from the year before. The total handle on Dec. 26, 2020 was $3,718,250, which was $800,000 more than the Saturday after Christmas 2019. Jan. 2 of this year saw a gigantic $4,562,477 of action, an increase of $1.8 million, while $3,646,603 was put in play on Jan. 9, an increase of almost $1.1 million. As usual, Pick-4 play was vigorous, as last Saturday saw the two pools combine for just over $180,000, an average of $90,000 per wager. "It's been an enormous month for Strategic Wagering and the United States Trotting Association," said Settlemoir. "This is the 11th year for the Strategic Wagering arm of the USTA. It offers low takeout wagers, free program pages, carryover Information and guaranteed pools. Strategic Wagering has increased interest in harness racing and has been a big part of the wagering resurgence you see on a nightly basis, and The Meadowlands is proud to be a part of this initiative." TODD'S GREAT, WON EIGHT: Todd McCarthy, the 27-year-old recent Australian arrival who has been tearing things up since his September debut at The Big M, won four races both last Friday (Jan. 8) and Saturday (Jan. 9). The leader of the "Todd Squad" has now recorded four wins on three occasions. Dave Miller also did well last weekend, winning twice on Friday and four times on Saturday. He is now in Florida for the winter and has already been seen in the sulky at Pompano Park. CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE TRACK?
