Mean MaryMean Mary (Photo by Adam  Coglianese)Leading every step of the way, Mean Mary, ridden by Luis Saez, set slow fractions of 25.48, 51.60, 1:17.34 and 1:42.59 and had plenty left at the end to win by 5 lengths.

The announcer on TVG blamed the other nine jockeys for allowing Saez to get away with a crawling pace that let Mean Mary get away with an easy win.

"It looked like it was going to set up that way," said Motion. "There wasn't any other pace in the race."

"I'm not going to be in any hurry to run her back," said Motion. "She's had a bit of a campaign. I may put her away for awhile. I'd like to have her for a big summer and fall campaign in those bigger races. I think she could be competitive in that division."

Tim Kreiser wins Penn National Leading Trainer title for sixth time

GRANTVILLE, Pa.--Tim Kreiser began 2020 the same that that he has ended the last six consecutive years, as Leading Trainer.

Venus Ramey T KreiserAnd he started his lead in 2020 in a dramatic way, by winning three races in one night on Jan. 2.

Winning three in one night has happened a few times," said Kreiser. "Let's go wire to wire as trainer."

Kreiser won both the first and second races on Jan. 3, first saddling Robert A. Derr's My Only Sunshine to win a $14,400, 6 furlong race for $10,000 claimers by a nose, and then saddling Derr's Just do the Math to win a $10,800, 6 furlong race for $5,000 claimers by 2 1/2 lengths.

His third win came in the sixth race, again for Derr, and this time with Venus Ramey in an $18,100, 6 furlong race for $16,000 claimers by 2 lengths.

"That was really strange," said Kreiser. 'I claimed Venus Ramey for $5,000, and mine was the only claim in for her. Then I moved her up to a $16,000 claiming price, and she was claimed."

Trainer Brandon Kulp claimed Venus Ramey for Cynthia Powers.

Michael Matz has two winners, including Ebullient, at Gulfstream

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla.--Michael Matz started off 2020 in the right way, saddling two winners in two days on Jan. 1 and 2 at Gulfstream Park.

EbullientEbullient"They were both tough races, so we were quite happy with both horses," said Matz.

On Jan. 1, he saddled Charles K. Marquis and John T. Behrent's Ebullient to win a $51,000, 1 1/16 mile Allowance race for fillies and mares by 3 1//4 lengths.

"I've had Ebullient since she was a 2-year-old," said Matz. "She was a little late getting started. She had tendonitis. Then she acted liked she wanted to go long, but she never finished up well. Then when we ran her short, she wasn't fast enough."

"She worked like a real good horse in the morning, so we didn't know whether we just had a morning glory," said Matz. "We kept scoping her, and finally we tied down her tongue. In that race, I just told the jockey to let her go and see what happened."

Graham Motion saddles two stakes winners and two maiden winners in one day

LAUREL, Md.--Dec. 28 was a pretty special day for Graham Motion as he saddled two stakes winners as well as two promising maiden winners, including one $100,000 stakes winner at Laurel.

Majestic ReasonMajestic ReasonPeter Pugh had a winner a winner at Gulfstream the day before for a horse he, Wendy Hendriks and Margaret Dupree co-own.

Majestic Reason, bred and owned by Richard L. Golden and Mrs. Ellen Charles in Maryland, won the $100,000, 6 furlong  Willa On the Move Stakes at Laurel by 3/4 length.

"I've had her from the beginning," said Motion. "She's a homebred of Mr. Golden and Mrs. Charles, who is a big Maryland owner. They partner on one horse every year."

"She's been a really neat filly," said Motion. "She's very honest. She''s hit the board every time except the one time I took her to Aqueduct. I had considered giving her some time off, but there's a good chance she'll run in the Barbara Fritchey in the middle of February. That's Laurel's most prestigious race for fillies and mares. I'd hate for her to miss that."

LAUREL, Md.--Bernie Houghton saddled Barlar, LLC's homebred Vault to win the $100,000, 1 1/16 miles Thirty Eight Go Go Stakes for fillies and mares 3 years old and up at Laurel Park on Nov. 30.

Much needed Horseracing bill languishes in House of Representatives

WASHINGTON, D.C.--The House of Representatives now has 220 cosponsors of the Horseracing Integrity Act of 2019, which would create an independent body, the Horseracing Anti-Doping and Medication Control Authority under the oversight of the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

Racig generic 3Unfortunately, the House, which will not be back in session until January due to Christmas, has been consumed by impeachment, so bills are in limbo, therefore it is unsure at this time whether the bill will get a vote in the House, but given the fact that the majority of House members now support the bill, it would likely pass.

Congress may not agree on much, but thankfully seems to agree that reform is needed in the horse racing industry, but despite that agreement, nothing is being done.

Not only would this bill benefit race horses, but without it there's a good chance that, beginning with California, racing might be banned throughout the country, destroying an industry that is loved by many and that gives jobs to millions of people.

Matz Bos imageBo's Image"She's a Tapit filly, and she's a little delicate," said Matz. "She has a mind of her own. She was in California, at the track, and things were happening too fast. They felt she would be better at Fair Hill. It just took her a little while to get it all together."

By Tapit out of a Giant's Causeway mare, Bo's Image has now run three times, finishing third in her first start at Delaware on Aug. 19 and the off the board at Laurel on Sept. 29 before winning on Nov. 14.

HOLLYWOOD, S.C.--Leslie Young saddled two winners at the Steeplechase of Charleston, including the winner of the featured 3-year-old hurdle, but, Global Freedom, trained by Ricky Hendriks,won the 3-Year-Old Championship  with the most money won throughout the year.

Ricky HendriksRicky Hendriks trains the 3-year-old championIn a remarkable display of sportsmanship, Mikey Mitchell, who had tied for the lead in Rider, Races Won, with Jack Doyle at Callaway Gardens the week before, called all his trainers and told them he wasn't going to Charleston.

He could have ridden any number of favorites at Charleston, but Doyle had suffered a severe injury, a badly broken jaw and ripped open cheek when a horse with a toe grab stepped on him after a fall in the last race there, and Mitchell wasn't going to take the championship when his opponent was sidelined.

What a classy, classy move.

In a thrilling finish, three horses finished across the track in the $25,000, 2 mile Alston Hurdle for 3-year-olds, with Irv Naylor's Must See the Doc (GB), trained by Young, just holding off  by a neck Hudson River Farm's Another Try, trained by Jonathan Sheppard, with Global Freedom (GB) another neck back in third.

Bernie Betsy Thomas HoughtonThe Houghtons, Bernie, left, Betsy and Bernie's son Thomas "We bred him here," said Houghton of the gelding who was in for a price of $25,000. "He's by Friesan Fire out of Sabbath Bay, by Real Quiet.

"We really liked him, but we never thought he'd win first time out. We thought he'd need a race. He ran terrific.

"He was born and raised here. He's named for where I came from, Pocopson Station. My parents had a farm two farms down from the Lyman's. My brother Harry built a house on that farm, and he still lives there.

"Pocopson Station is a nice, big horse. In the beginning of the race, he didn't know what was going on, and then it suddenly clicked. I thought the other horse that Bernie trains, Life Master, was going to win. He led through most of the race but he finished third. I was glad when I thought he was going to win," said Houghton. "We  like his owner, Nicholas Fazzolari.

Jack Fisher wins the feature at Callaway Gerdens with Storm Team

PINE MOUNTAIN, Ga.--Jack Fisher saddled Sheila Williams and Northwoods Stable's Storm Team, ridden by Mikey Mitchell, to win the $75,000, 2 1/4 miles Sport of Kings Novice Hurdle Stakes at Callaway Gardens in Georgia on Nov. 9.

Jack Fisher Fair Hill 2Jack Fisher, Leading Trainer, Races Won, with 37 winsStorm Team won by 1 length over Riverdee Stable's City Dreamer (Ire), also trained by Fisher and ridden by Jack Doyle.

Mitchell's win propelled him into a tie for the Leading Rider, Races won, with Doyle.

The course at Callaway Gardens favored speed, and horses running in the front did well through the day.

"It's horses for courses," said Fisher. "Storm Team is a front end horse. We're going to try him over timber next year. He's been trying it out for himself by jumping out of fields. He's going to fox hunt this winter, get more experience over timber."

"We're not going to Charleston," said Fisher, referring to the final steeplechase meet of the year, the Steeplechase of Charleston in Hollywood, S.C.

That leaves Fisher as the Leading Trainer, Races Won, with 37 wins to Jonathan Sheppard's 20 wins.

Doyle had a fall over the last fence in the final race of the day when Zanzi Win (Fr) pecked badly and almost fell.

"Jack got badly hurt yesterday, he broke his jaw" said Fisher in an interview on Nov. 10. "With us not going to Charleston, that leaves Mikey and Jack in a tie for Leading Rider, Races Won. Jack's very classy. It's nice for them to share the title."
