JK Endofanera and Brett Miller capture the 2015 edition of the $300,000 Dan Patch Stakes

JK Endofanera and driver Brett Miller used a valiant stretch drive to overtake a field of ten in the 22nd installment of the $300,000 Dan Patch Stakes on Friday, August 14 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. With a final time of 1:48.4, JK Endofanera was able to take advantage of the long Hoosier Park stretch to score his third win of the season for trainer, Jimmy Takter.

Leaving from the coveted rail position, JK Endofanera was quick off the gate but was forced to settle for a spot along the rail in third as Ricky Macomber Jr. had Bettor’s Edge on a mission from post nine. Bettor’s Edge was the first to get a call through a snappy opening panel in :25.3, while Lyonssomewhere and Andy Miller benefitted from a pocket trip with the rest of the field sorting out early position.

Lyonssomewhere made a move to the front approaching the second station but his lead would be short lived as Yannick Gingras had the post time favorite, Foiled Again, pointed to the front. The quick tempo continued as Foiled Again reached the front at the half mile mark in :53.1 and was joined immediately feeling the pressure from Clear Vision and Trace Tetrick on the outside.

As the field passed the three-quarter clocking in 1:21.1, Clear Vision was able to put away Foiled Again but looked down a long Hoosier Park stretch and braced himself for the cavalry charge behind him. JK Endofanera appeared to be buried at the top of the stretch as he was sitting eighth at the pylons turning for home. Matt Kakaley had All Bets Off well placed at the top of the stretch as they made a valiant bid for the lead but his biggest threat was still behind him.

Miller found late racing room, asked his mount for more, and JK Endofanera exploded past his rivals with a :26.2 final quarter to get the win by two and a half lengths. All Bets Off held on gamely for the second place finish while Clear Vision rounded out the trifecta. As the betting publics’ second choice, JK Endofanera returned $6.40 to his backers.

“The race definitely didn’t shape up like I hoped,” Miller noted in the winner’s circle with a laugh. “I was buried on the rail and when we were coming around the last turn I honestly thought to myself, it’s all up to God now.”

“I know the track and I know how long this stretch is, we definitely used it to our advantage tonight,” he continued. “Jimmy (Takter) told me when he got this horse that he is the real deal and after the last few races, I’ve had a lot of confidence in him. He definitely showed how good of a horse he is tonight. It was a great race; this is actually a race I’ve always wanted to win.”

Trained by Jimmy Takter the four-year-old son of Art Major-Presidential Lady notched his third win from eight starts in 2015. With the win, JK Endofanera pushed his lifetime bankroll to $1,712,088 for his connections at the 3 Brothers Stables.

Hoosier Park Announces New Format for 2015 Dan Patch

danpatchANDERSON, Ind.—February 9, 2015—Hoosier Park Racing & Casino is set to begin the 22nd season of live harness racing on Friday, March 27 with several new and important changes to the stakes schedule. One of the most highly anticipated days on the 2015 harness racing calendar will take place on Friday, August 14 as the Dan Patch takes center stage once again. Boasting an increased purse for the 2015 edition, the Dan Patch will serve as Indiana’s richest harness race but will take on a new format beginning in 2015.

Historically, the Dan Patch has been an invitational race with Hoosier Park’s racing secretary, inheriting the responsibility of recruiting the best horses to compete in the event every year. However, when the Dan Patch returns for its 22nd edition in 2015, it will be raced under a new and improved format.

In conjunction with the Hambletonian Society, The Dan Patch will now be raced as an early closer, which requires a nomination and sustaining payment the same year in which the race will be contested. By making the switch and increasing the purse, Hoosier Park is hoping to attract the top pacers in the country that may not have previously considered racing in the Dan Patch.

To begin, a nomination fee of $500 is due on February 15, 2015 for all horses wishing to compete in the 2015 Dan Patch. After the initial fee, the nominated horses will be eligible to be sustained to the 2015 edition of the race by making a $2,000 payment on March 15.

The purse for the 2015 Dan Patch is estimated to be $300,000 with the field being comprised of the top ten highest lifetime money earners. Once the field is established, an entrance fee of $2,500 will be required.

“By making the Dan Patch a paid-in event, Hoosier Park is taking the next step in elevating what is already a great race and increasing it in purse and stature,” Hoosier Park’s Vice President and General Manager of Racing, Rick Moore noted. “We feel the race will now reach a point where it will stand side by side with the Canadian Pacing Derby and the William Haughton Memorial Pace as the elite races for aged pacers.”

Hoosier Park’s most prestigious pacing race has become a tradition that is close to the hearts of Hoosiers. The Dan Patch not only highlights some of the best athletes in the sport of harness racing, but is deeply rooted throughout Indiana soil.

The Dan Patch race was established at Hoosier Park in 1994 with Ready To Rumble and driver Trevor Ritchie winning the inaugural edition 21 years ago. The list of all-star horses that have made their way to Hoosier Park over the years includes Jenna’s Beach Boy, Maltese Artist and former seven-eighths mile world record holder, the late Pacific Fella.

In 2014, racing fans watched Sweet Lou, driven by Ron Pierce, pace the fastest mile in Hoosier Park history with a 1:47.2 score in the 21st edition of the Dan Patch Invitational. The previous track record of 1:48.1, a mark that stood for four years, was established by Shark Gesture and George Brennan in the 2010 Dan Patch Invitational.

For the second consecutive year, the winner of the 2015 Dan Patch Invitational will get an automatic nomination to the 2015 edition of the Hoosier Park Pacing Derby slated for Friday, October 30 at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. All nomination fees will be waived but in the event the winner of the Dan Patch Invitational has already been nominated to the Hoosier Park Pacing Derby, a refund of all fees will be given upon declaration.

 

In addition to the changes to the Dan Patch, Hoosier Park will once again host the Jenna’s Beach Boy Pace for three-year-old colt pacers but feature an increased purse of an estimated $100,000 for the 2015 edition. Slated for Saturday, September 26, the field will be comprised of the top ten lifetime money earners. A $20,000 consolation will also be contested on Saturday, September 26.

On the wagering front, the Dan Patch card offered remarkable value to horseplayers with the continuation of a $25,000 Guaranteed Superfecta on the Dan Patch Invitational race.

Trace Tetrick led all forces on the track and took home the 2014 leading driver title with 289 victories and accumulated over $3.6 million in purse earnings throughout the season. Tetrick, who led the driver standings from start to finish, earned his third leading driver title at Hoosier Park in 2014. Tetrick also earned a spot in Hoosier Park’s record books as he re-established the record for most wins in one season, a record that was previously held by Tony Morgan during the 1998 season with 262 victories.

Dan Patch Invitational Highlights Hoosier Park Season

danpatch

Once again, the $200,000 Dan Patch Invitational will be the highlight of the 2013 harness racing season at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday, May 25. Now in its’ 20th edition, the Dan Patch Invitational pace is the one time of the year that the top rated horses in North America convene on Hoosier Park’s seven-eighths mile oval seeking a lucrative $200,000 purse and a spot in Hoosier Park’s history.

Hoosier Park’s signature harness racing event has become a tradition that is close to the hearts of Hoosiers. The Dan Patch, an invitational race, not only highlights some of the best athletes in the sport of harness racing, but is deeply rooted throughout Indiana soil.

Hoosier Park’s event is named after the early 1900s racehorse phenomenon, Dan Patch. Originally from Oxford, Ind., Dan Patch raced the clock rather than his inferior competitors. Drawing crowds of over 90,000 people at a single race, the free-legged equine hero was the unparalleled sports icon of his time.

The Dan Patch race was established at Hoosier Park in 1994 with Ready To Rumble and driver Trevor Ritchie winning the inaugural edition 20 years ago. The list of all-star horses that have made their way to Hoosier Park over the years includes Jenna’s Beach Boy, Maltese Artist and former seven-eighths mile world record holder, the late Pacific Fella.

Kevin Mack, Hoosier Park’s racing secretary, inherits the responsibility of recruiting the best horses to compete in the event every year. Mack begins making his list of potential contenders for one of the ten coveted invitations to the Dan Patch many weeks in advance. After much consideration, ten horses, including a signature “Hometown Hero” chosen from the local area, will receive the official invitation to compete in Hoosier Park’s signature harness racing attraction.

The 2013 installment will tout some of the best horses, trainers and drivers in the sport. Patrons can potentially expect to see talents like Levy Memorial Pacing Series champion, Razzle Dazzle, Meadowlands Pace champion A Rocknroll Dance and perhaps 2012’s victor, Rockin Cam lined up behind the gate for the 2013 edition.

“We are looking at what may be the most competitive field to date in the 2013 edition of this great race,” Mack noted. “We haven’t officially decided, but the horses we are looking to invite are evenly matched and that makes for great racing. We are constantly striving to improve our harness racing product in Indiana and the Dan Patch is a race that does that by shining the spotlight on Indiana Standardbred racing on to the national scene.”

Several activities will be held trackside to complement the Dan Patch Invitational pace, including Indiana sire stakes action, property-wide dining specials, special wagering opportunities and exciting entertainment throughout the entire evening.

Racing fans will have the opportunity to participate in two special wagering opportunities offered for the Dan Patch Invitational race. A $25,000 guaranteed Superfecta pool for the Dan Patch race will once again be available as part of the special Strategic Wagering Program through the United States Trotting Association and Hoosier Park partnership. Hoosier Park will also offer a $10,000-guaranteed pick-4 pool that will include the Dan Patch race as a leg of the wager.
