Hoosier Park Provides Former Race Horse New Lease on Life

canwecheatumnwhenANDERSON, Ind.—September 28, 2016—In conjunction with the Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF), Hoosier Park Racing & Casino has donated funds to save a race horse from slaughter. With the donation, Hoosier Park is not only helping the horse currently in need but hoping to raise awareness for the SRF organization who works diligently to provide race horses with homes after their racing careers are finished.

Just two weeks ago, the Indiana-sired trotter Canwecheatumnwhen was found to be in imminent danger of shipping to slaughter. Canwecheatumnwhen is a nine-year-old gelding who amassed over $100,000 in purse earnings and 25 wins throughout his racing career. With the help of SRF, industry professionals, and Hoosier Park Racing & Casino, the trotting gelding was swiftly removed from harm’s way.

“For the third time in less than two years, Hoosier Park has stepped up to the plate to rescue a horse from a fate surely not deserved,” said Rick Moore, Hoosier Park’s vice president and general manager of racing. “It is our fervent desire that horses like Canwecheatumnwhen, who have given so much on the racetrack, find homes where they can live out the remainder of their time in a blissful manner. We wish our friend Canwecheatumnwhen nothing but the best in retirement!”

The cost to take in one horse and provide all the necessary steps of paying their fees, shipping, quarantine, rehabilitation, veterinary care, and blacksmith and dental care is approximately $1,500. Hoosier Park’s donation will be put towards the care of Canwecheatumnwhen until a permanent home can be secured.

Canwecheatumnwhen will now head to a quarantine facility where he will be placed under a veterinary’s care. Once his soundness and current health is determined, his future options will be explored including under saddle work.

About the Standardbred Retirement Foundation: Founded in 1989, Standardbred Retirement Foundation (SRF) is currently caring for more than 192 retired racehorses at boarding and training facilities around the country; all are available for adoption. SRF is unique as it never relinquishes ownership and requires the veterinary of every adopted horse to provide a follow-up report semi-annually to insure each horse remains happy and healthy, for life. The program relies on tax-deductible gifts, and fund raising events such as the donation of lifetime breedings to prominent stallions, single breeding donations, and other fund raising efforts. In complement to finding them loving homes as companion horses, their program also focuses on retraining that gives them second careers in police work and therapy programs. SRF retires them with the dignity they deserve and provides them with full care for the remainder of their lives.

Hannelore Hanover Captures Centaur Trotting Classic

 

hannelore-hanover-the-centaur-troting-classic-finishANDERSON, Ind.—September 24, 2016—Hannelore Hanover, with driver Yannick Gingras in the bike, returned to her home state of Indiana to turn in a dominant performance in the featured event of the evening, the $220,000 Centaur Trotting Classic, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, September 24. The Centaur Trotting Classic serves as Hoosier Park’s richest trotting race and for the second consecutive year, the race was won by a mare.

Just as Bee A Magician did the previous year, Hannelore Hanover easily handled a field of nine male counterparts to add another stakes victory to her resume. With a final time of 1:52.4, the World Champion mare made her game winning move down the backside and coasted on to the wire to finish two lengths in front of the competition.

Leaving from post six in the talented field of ten, Hannelore Hanover was eased off the gate to settle in fourth while Homicide Hunter and David Miller got the first call through the opening panel in :26.4. Muscle Up The Goal and Aaron Merriman benefitted from a pocket trip while Crazy Wow and John DeLong were next in line third. Gingras gave Hannelore Hanover the green light just past the half in :55.4 and she ranged up to reach the leader’s wheel to grab command just before the three-quarter clocking in 1:24.3.

As the field turned for home, Hannelore Hanover began to put her talent on display as she found another gear and started to trot away from the field. Wind Of The North and Corey Callahan rallied gamely in the stretch but had to settle for second place honors while Crazy Wow and John DeLong rounded out the trifecta. As the 1-5 favorite, Hannelore Hanover returned $2.60 at the betting window.

“She’s just a great, great mare,” Gingras noted in the winner’s circle. “I wanted to race her off the pace but that was a nice horse on the front and I had to move when I did so he didn’t get away from us. She was strong turning for home and just coasted to the wire. She was unbelievably good again tonight.”

Trained by Hoosier Park’s leading trainer, Ron Burke, the four-year-old daughter of Swan For All-High Sobriety notched her 15th win from 17 seasonal outings. Hannelore Hanover has now amassed $1,201,685 for her connections of Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, Frank Baldachino, and J&T Silva Stables.

“I always knew she was a nice mare,” Burke noted before the race. “I told Yannick (Gingras) last year that she was third best trotting filly in the country and she’s proving it now.”

“I am very fond of Mission Brief but Hannelore Hanover is right up there with her,” he continued. “Hopefully Mission Brief can come back and we can see these two racing together. They are definitely the nicest trotting mares I’ve ever had and that’s saying a lot because I also trained Buck I St. Pat. It’s been a lot of fun with Hannelore Hanover this season.”

The victory with Hannelore Hanover was one of four winners on the evening’s 14-race card for both Ron Burke and Yannick Gingras. Burke currently leads all trainers at Hoosier Park for the 2016 live harness racing season with 64 wins on the season through 125 days of racing.

Live racing continues at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Tuesday, September 27 with a 14-race card. With a daily post time of 5:45 p.m., live racing will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through November 12.

Granite Pulls Major Upset in Indiana Sires Stakes Final

The Hoosier state’s top three-year-old pacing colts were in the spotlight on Thursday, September 15 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in the fifth and final round of the $75,000 preliminary Indiana Sires Stakes finals. The evening’s 14-race program was primarily ruled by long shots but it was Granite, with Mike Peterson at the lines, who converted a pocket trip and a break by the heavy favorite to pull the biggest upset of the night in the featured event of the evening. Stopping the timer in 1:50.4, Granite won by nearly two lengths at odds of 44-1 and also established a new lifetime best in the process.

Leaving from post one in the talented field of nine, Peterson sent Granite away from the gate firing to protect their early position but would eventually relinquish the lead to the heavy favorite Duel of Truth and John DeLong at the first quarter in :27.1. Bourbon Chase and Dan Shetler also left well to grab a spot along the rail in third while Matrix of Luck and Ricky Macomber Jr. were next in line third.

Duel of Truth dictated middle fractions of :55.2 and 1:23.1 but was soon joined on the outside by Bourbon Chase with Matrix of Luck in tow. As the field turned for home, Duel of Truth and Bourbon Chase were matching strides and the stage was set for an epic battle to the wire.

Duel of Truth appeared to be up to the task as he was able to put away Bourbon Chase half-way down the lane but Granite was looming large in the pocket. Just as Duel of Truth seemed to be pacing away from the rest of the field, he made a costly break and took himself out of the race. Granite inherited the lead and paced on to the wire to win by nearly two lengths and hold off a hard charging Uncmprmising Z Tam and LeWayne Miller. Bourbon Chase held on for third place honors. As the second longest shot on the board, Granite returned $90.60 to his loyal backers at the betting windows. The exacta including Granite and Uncmprmising Z Tam, at odds of 18-1, returned $836.80.

“The trip worked out great, it actually couldn’t have worked out any better for us,” Peterson noted in the winner’s circle. “I didn’t know all that much about the hors because last week was the first time I had ever driven him but he raced really well last week too.”

“Coming around the last turn I knew he (Granite) had pace and I was just hoping to get a good check,” he continued. “Every time I asked him though, he dug in a little more. He’s a very nice colt.”

Trained by Melanie Wrenn, the son of Real Desire-Precious Stone notched his third win from 11 seasonal starts. Owned by Gene Oldford Farms LLC, Granite has now won seven of 20 lifetime outings while bankrolling $145,252 in purse earnings in his career.

Jesse V Rebounds in Indiana Sires Stakes Final

After a third place finish in the eliminations last week at Hoosier Park, Jesse V and Ricky Macomber Jr. rebounded nicely to score in 1:57.3 and become the sport’s newest $100,000 winner in the process.

Leaving from post five in a talented field of ten, Jesse V left vigilantly but would have to work for position as a host of others also left aggressively. After a costly break at the start by the post time favorite, Jesse Stone and Trace Tetrick, the race appeared to be wide open.

Herbies Wild Child was hustled off the gate by driver Rick Farrington but it was My Uncle Cuz and Don Harmon who would get the first call through the opening panel in :29.2. Jesse V was unable to find a spot along the rail and continued to press on to the lead, eventually grabbing command at the half in :59.

Things continued to be eventful on the front end as Joe Essig Jr. had Rockin Mania on an assignment to the front approaching the final turn. Rockin Mania continued to call the shots at the three-quarter clocking in 1:28.4 but was bracing for the stretch battle that was about to arise. Macomber Jr. tipped Jesse V from the pocket and he found another gear to win by a length and a half over a hard-charging My Uncle Cuz. Rockin Mania held on gamely for third. Jesse V returned $6.60 to his backers at the betting windows.

“He’s been a very nice colt since day one,” winning trainer Mark P’Pool noted in the winner’s circle. “He trained down with pacers all winer and he was able to stay right with them. He’s a very nice colt to be around and seems to be getting better with every start.”

The son of Jailhouse Jesse-Louisa’s Victory scored the second win of his young career from ten starts. His maiden breaking victory came in the last $75,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Final at Hoosier Park. Owned by F. Baldachino, E. Smith, M. P’Pool, and Northern Lane Farm, Jesse V sent his career earnings over the $100,000 mark as he has now amassed $112,500 for his connections.

Ajessia lead the field to the half in :57.3 but her lead would also be short-lived as Dan Shetler and Best Wishes wanted their turn on the front.

Best Wishes was in command at the three-quarter clocking in 1:27.3 and as the field rounded the final turn, Tetrick had Foxy Swan pointed to the front. Foxy Swan ranged up to take the lead and as the field turned for home, her lead was ever-increasing.
