by Kimberly A. Rinker, USTA Newsroom Senior Correspondent

Melrose Park, IL---Big Boy Dreams won the $180,000 Windy City Pace Friday night (Oct. 17) at Maywood Park in wire-to-wire fashion for driver Tim Tetrick in 1:51. The Ron Burke trainee and New York Sire Stakes competitor notched his fourth win of the year in 10 starts.

“I got the front the way I wanted and my horse was big and strong and carried me all the way to the wire,” Tetrick said. “I wanted to make the other horses have to catch me. He’s been racing tough on the New York circuit.”

Big Boy Dreams took the field to a brutal :25.4 first quarter and a :54.1 half, with Let’s Drink On It (Travis Seekman) challenging the leader going to the 1:22.2 three-quarters, but Big Boy Dreams just continued to draw away in the stretch to win by 2-1/2 lengths.

He now has $168,495 in seasonal earnings for owner Dominic Rosato of Utica, N.Y.

“It’s good to get back home,” said Tetrick. “I cut my teeth there and it’s always good to be here.”

Let’s Drink On It finished second, while Three Of Clubs (Doug McNair) was third and Kingofthejungle (Brian Carpenter) got up for fourth.

The son of If I Can Dream - Stefani Blue Chip - Art Major has $340,533 in career earnings from six wins in 11 starts for these connections.

He was a $9,000 yearling purchase from the 2012 Morrisville, N.Y., College Sale.

NY-Bred JK Endofanera wins second division of the Lis Mara Tattersalls Pace

Sunday, 05 October 2014 09:18

 

By Kimberly Rinker for The USTA The second division of the $218,300 Lis Mara Tattersalls Pace for 3-year-old pacing colts went to JK Endofanera and driver Yannick Gingras in a spectacular stretch duel that saw the youngster prevail by a nose over the hard-trying Winds Of Change (Brett Miller) in 1:49.1.

The son of Art Major-Presidential Lady-Presidental Ball is owned and was bred by the Three Brothers Stable and is conditioned by Ronnie Burke.

“He’s probably not his best on the front, but I didn’t want to give another a horse a trip, so I didn’t mind moving him when I did,” Gingras said. “He’ll be going to the American-National in Chicago next week.”

Melmerby Beach (Paul MacDonell) took the field to an opening :26.4 panel, before being headed by JK Endofanera at the :54.2 half. The field paced evenly to the three-quarters in 1:22.2 as Let’s Drink On It paced first up to challenge JK Endofanera. These two pacers battled through the stretch, with Winds Of Change and Somesizesomestyle charging late. JK Endofanera kept his nose in front of Winds Of Change under the finish line. Somesizesomestyle was third with Let's Drink On It fourth.

JK Endofanera upped his career earnings to $1,188,575 with the win, the 12thof his career. His 2014 earnings now stand at $816,725 from eight seasonal victories.

This bay colt is a full brother to the 2-year-old filly pacing sensation JK She’salady p, 2, 1:50.1s ($421,025) and to JK Fine Art p,4,1:50.2f ($374,102).

JK She’salady remains unbeaten at Red Mile - by Kimberly Rinker, USTA Web Newsroom Correspondent

Lexington, KY --- A $253,700 trio of American Ideal International Stallion Stakes went postward Friday afternoon over Lexington’s Red Mile, setting hoof on a racing surface listed as “good,” after a healthy dose of rain had settled on the historic Standardbred arena.

JK She’salady kept her unbeaten streak alive as she captured the second $84,900 division of the American Ideal International Stallion Stakes for freshman pacing fillies in 1:50.2 with Yannick Gingras in the sulky.

The track condition had been changed from good to ‘fast,’ after the second race, but a light mist began to fall just before the start of this event, the third race on the day’s card.

After sitting fourth behind the leading Heavenly Bride (Brian Sears) and Bettor Be Steppin (Corey Callahan) to the :27.1 first quarter and :55.1 half, Yannick tipped his charge to the outside and in the blink of an eye the speedy distaff was on top. From there she simply cruised through the 1:23.1 three-quarter, before striding home easily to notch her eighth win in eight starts. Heavenly Bride finished second, while Bettor Be Sweet garnered third-place honors.

“She likes to race that way and we’ve never tried her on the front, so there seems no
