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."

Motion saddled Windy Lane, bred by Tyler B. Jones and owned by Windy Lane Stable, to win a $47,320 Maiden Special Weight for 2-year-old fillies by 1 length at Laurel.

Motion said he plans to keep Windy Lane at Fair Hill through the winter.

Houghton scores a stakes win, Hendriks and Motion have winners

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.

Vault James McCueVault winning at Laurel (Photo by James McCue)She was born at our farm," said Houghton, referring to his mother Betsy's Sylmar Farm in Christiana, Pa. "She's a half-sister to Mirth, who ran in the Breeders' Cup earlier this year."

By Jump Start out of Di's Delight, by French Deputy, 3-year-old Vault stalked the pace, took command in upper stretch and drew way to win by 3 1/2 lengths over Jehozacat, with Trolley Ride, also trained by Houghton, third.

In scoring her first stakes win, Vault has now run her record to five wins, four seconds and one third from 13 starts and has earned $188,614, but she didn't win for the first time until her fifth race.

"Like all Jump Starts, she was just a little slow in getting started," said Houghton. "But now, she just keeps getting better. She's a nice filly and nice to train, although she's a little strong galloping. She's down in Florida, in Ocala, now for a couple of months rest."

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.

LAUREL, Md.--Michael Matz saddled George Krikorian's homebred Bo's Image to win a $40,920, 1 1/8 mile Maiden Special Weight at Laurel Park on Nov. 14.

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.

Leslie Young wins two at Charleston while Rosbrian's Global Freedom wins 3 y.o. championship

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.

Owned by George Mahoney's Rosbrian Farm, ridden by Gerard Galligan and trained by Hendriks, Global Freedom, who won the $50,000 Gladstone Stakes at Far Hills, totalled $32,500 in jump purses to win the 3-year-old championship over Must See the Doc, who had $24,000.

Betsy Houghton's Pocopson Station wins first time out

CHRISTIANA, Pa--Pocopson Station, bred by Betsy Houghton, owned by her Sylmar Farm and trained by her son Bernie, won an $18,100, 5 1/2 furlong Maiden Claiming race for 2 year olds at Penn National on Nov. 8.

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."

MONTPELIER STATION, Va.--Assistant trainer Keri Brion saddled two winners for Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard at the Montpelier Hunt Races on Nov. 2, including Anticipating in the co-featured $30,000 Montpelier Cup.

"That was great," said Brion in an interview following the race. "He ran fourth at Foxfield earlier this year. He probably needed that race. We thought he'd like the course here."

Sheppard has had a great year and, with 19 wins, stands second to Jack Fisher in both Trainer Races and Money Won categories.

Fisher has 36 wins from 135 starts, and with 40 less starts, Sheppard has 19 winners, and Brion was asked what contributed to his success.

"Vincent Bonnani bought a little piece of Attracting," said Sheppard. "He's a nice guy, and he lives in Saratoga. He's quite a steeplechasing aficionado. He always goes to Far Hills."

Beecher kept the 7-year-old gelding in second throughout the race behind Grand Manon, began to move up approaching the last fence, drew even and jumped the last beside Grand Manon and drew away for the win.

The stewards announced an inquiry about the first two finishers in the stretch but allowed the result to stand.

"It felt long," said Beecher of riding in the four mile Hunt Cup that drew a huge crowd on a beautiful fall day.

"They weren't planning to run him," said Beecher of Mystic Strike's connections. "I called Todd and told him to enter the horse. I told him that I knew the horse could win it. I don't ride that much any more, so I guess people believe me now when I say that."
