  The Meadows: Expose Yourself Jogs In $20,000 F&M Trot
Posted by: Admin - 11-29-2018, 04:12 AM - Forum: Harness Racing - No Replies

EXPOSE YOURSELF JOGS IN MEADOWS $20,000 F&M TROT


WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 28, 2018 — Parked the opening three-eighths, Expose Yourself was so dominant that she still blew away the field by 6-3/4 lengths in Wednesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Expose Yourself dueled with Looking For Zelda and Dirty Secret before she was able to cross over for Dave Palone. The 4-year-old daughter of Kadabra-Muscle Shirt drew steadily away and scored geared down in 1:55.2 over a "good" surface. Dirty Secret and Bessie completed the ticket.

Ron Burke trains Expose Yourself, who won for the 10th time this year and pushed her career bankroll to $166,961, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Palone collected four wins — including a pair for Burke — on the 13-race card while Mike Wilder enjoyed a triple.

YONKERS' FRIDAY PICK 5 FEATURES $4,200 CARRYOVER, 15G GUARANTEE
                          BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway          
 
YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, November 27, 2018—A friendly reminder from Yonkers Raceway that Friday evening's (Nov. 30th) Pick 5 wager starts with a carryover of $4,266.35 and a $15,000 guaranteed pool. The guarantee is in conjunction with the U.S. Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Program.
 
The Pick 5 is a 50-cent base wager comprising races 6 through 10 Friday night. It has no consolation payoff, meaning if no one selects all five winners (as was the case Tuesday night), the entire pool (minus takeout) moves to the next racing program.
 
Program pages for the Friday Pick 5 accompany this release.

CRACKLIN ROSIE RALLIES AGAIN, REPEATS IN MEADOWS $20K F&M PACE


WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 27, 2018 — Cracklin Rosie won her second straight Tuesday at The Meadows, rallying again to erase a substantial deficit and capture the $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Pace.

Cracklin Rosie was fourth by 4-1/2 lengths when she followed the first-over cover of Shesasmokinlady. The 5-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover-Honey's Bud Lite roared wide through the stretch for Jim Pantaleano to catch the leader, Circle The Page, and down her by a length in 1:55.2 over a "good" surface. McDazzle finished third.

Scott Betts trains Cracklin Rosie, who now boasts $235,846 in career earnings, for Timothy Betts, Stephen Moss, Nicholas Catalano and Pedro Baez III.

Dan Charlino, Aaron Merriman, Dave Palone, Mike Wilder and Pantaleano each piloted a pair of winners on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday, when the program features a $1,704.60 carryover in the Pick 5 and a $716.30 carried-over jackpot in the Super Hi-Five. First post is 1:05 PM.

  The Meadows: Outburst Explodes Late, Wins Meadows Feature
Posted by: Admin - 11-27-2018, 06:41 AM - Forum: Harness Racing - No Replies

OUTBURST EXPLODES LATE, WINS MEADOWS FEATURE


WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 26, 2018 — Trailing by 4-1/2 lengths and wide at the half, Outburst exploded through the final turn and captured Monday's feature at The Meadows, a $14,000 Conditioned Trot.

Outburst appeared to be gapping cover when Dave Palone tipped him off the cones. But the 7-year-old Explosive Matter-Exquisite Lady gelding found his best stride late, holding off the rallying Media Buzz by 3/4 lengths in 1:57.3 over a "good" surface. Chef Lee shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Ron Burke trains Outburst, who won for the 19th time over the past two seasons and lifted his career bankroll to $685,352, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. It was one of four victories for Palone on the 13-race card.

  The Meadows: My Cherry Pie Upsets At 7-1 In Meadows $20,000 F&M Trot

MY CHERRY PIE UPSETS AT 7-1 IN MEADOWS $20,000 F&M TROT


WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 21, 2018 — Trailing by 6 lengths at the three-quarters, My Cherry Pie turned on the jets in the lane and pulled off a 7-1 upset in Wednesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Making her Meadows debut for trainer Dane Snyder and owners Linwood Higgins, Jason Ash, Vicki Gordon and Liz Flohr, was content to sit in and let Ready Any time front a comfortable 58.1 half. But when Mike Wilder asked her for trot, the 4-year-old daughter of Donato Hanover-CR Ms American Pie found another gear and edged Ready Any Time by a head in 1:56.1. Expose Yourself finished third. My Cherry Pie extended her career bankroll to $143,666.

Dave Palone, trainer Spencer Kahrig and Wilder each fashioned a triple on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, first post 1:05 PM.

  Cal Expo: Mr Varsity gets class relief in main event
Posted by: Admin - 11-21-2018, 11:44 PM - Forum: Harness Racing - No Replies

Mr Varsity gets class relief in main event
By Mark Ratzky, publicity – Cal Expo Harness
 
After having to cancel last week due to heavy smoke from the Paradise fire, racing is set to resume at Cal Expo Friday night with Mr Varsity heading the $4,800 pacing feature from the outside slot. 
 
First post for the nine-race Watch and Wager LLC program is 7:10 p.m.
 
Mr Varsity is a 4-year-old son of Roll With Joe who is owned by Nikki Hudson and Dave Haness and is reined and trained by Luke Plano. His first start at the meet came at the Open level and he had to settle for a third-place check after sitting a pocket trip as the 7-5 choice.
 
Mr Varsity was a winner this year at Hoosier Park and sports a 1:50 mark that was established last season at the Meadowlands. He should be very much at home in this conditioned affair, but the No. 9 post will certainly make things more challenging.
 
The Plano barn will also be represented by Why Ask Why in the headliner with Chip Lackey guiding. The gelding has eight victories on his card from 35 trips to the post this season, including a lifetime best-equaling 1:53 2/5 tour here early in the year.
 
He was last seen taking bows following a victory on September 21 at Hawthorne where he lit up the board at 46-1 after getting up by a neck that evening. The missed time is the biggest question mark with this pacer.
 
Cantholdmebackmack looms a major player with a race under his belt and a positive switch from the 9 post to the No. 3 slot for this assignment. Jessie Pacheco owns and trains and Steve Wiseman will once again be doing the honors. Completing the field are General Time, Almost Cut My Hair, Bettor in The Bank, Mister Hat, Crusin For You and Swagsasaururex.

  The Meadows: Cracklin Rosie Rallies From Worst To First In $20K F&M Pace
Posted by: Admin - 11-21-2018, 01:20 AM - Forum: Harness Racing - No Replies

CRACKLIN ROSIE RALLIES FROM WORST TO FIRST IN MEADOWS $20K F&M PACE


WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 20, 2018 — Last by 8 lengths at the half, Cracklin Rosie followed a line of cover to the final turn, then roared wide through the lane to capture Tuesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Cracklin Rosie was third in a cover flow that seemed excessive. But when Jim Pantaleano tipped her wide for the drive, she showed she's no "store-bought woman" — as Neil Diamond's 1970 chart-topper Cracklin Rosie had it — and erased the last 3-1/2 lengths of her deficit, scoring in 1:55.4 over a sloppy surface. Jewels Forreal shot the Lightning Lane for second, 1-1/2 lengths back, while the first-over McDazzle finished third.

Scott Betts trains the 5-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover-Honey's Bud Lite, who extended her career bankroll to $225,846, for Tim Betts, Stephen Moss, Nicholas Catalano and Pedro Baez III. It was one of three wins on the 13-race card for Pantaleano.
