Second by a neck!
That was one for the ages. At 3 miles it's the longest hurdle race on the NSA calendar, but Mr. Hot Stuff battled every step down the stretch.

And what I love about steeplechasing. How many divisions can get their Eclipse champions from the past three years together in one race?

I have tried to find a link to a video of the race, but no luck yet. Usually Bloodhorse posts replay videos of stakes races, and I thought for sure they'd have it...after all, they carried that article...but nada. :(

Pocono to celebrate 50th anniversary

On July 15, 1965, the $7 million Pocono Downs opened its doors in Northeast Pennsylvania. Thousands of fans were on hand as Satin Queen was the first to cross the finish line on that sultry summer night.

Fifty years later, 42 tracks have come and gone, but Pocono Downs, now renamed The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, continues to host world-record racing from March to November each year. From August 15-22, the track will honor the past and look ahead to the future with a week of events for the fans to celebrate and honor the rich history and tremendous racing.

Freaky Feet Pete upsets Wiggle It Jiggleit in Indiana Sires Stakes Final

The apron was packed, the winners’ circle was standing room only and there were many tears of joy as Freaky Feet Pete entered the winners’ circle at Hoosier Park on Saturday (October 10) after capturing an emotional edition of the $220,000 Indiana Sires Stakes Super Final for 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers over the sport’s top ranked horse in Wiggle It Jiggleit. It was as ‘Pete’ heard the roar of the crowd, as he certainly received overwhelming support from nearly all present at the Anderson oval, as he paced strongly through the lane to best his rival in 1:50.1. Vague Traces rounded out the trifecta.

Wiggle It Jiggleit tops final Poll of 2015

Wiggle It Jiggleit is No. 1 in the final Hambletonian Society/Breeders Crown poll for 2015.

A 3-year-old male pacer, Wiggle It Jiggleit continued his winning ways by capturing Monday’s single elimination for next week’s Hap Hansen Progress Pace at Dover Downs. It was Wiggle It Jiggleit’s 21st win of the year, which is tied for the most among all horses in North America and leads all pacers.

I did a double-take when I saw this post...probably because Divine Fortune died Aug. 27 this year. :(
When I opened the link, I see that this is an article from 2014.

Wiggle It Jiggleit goes out a winner in Progress Pace

He finished almost exactly the way he started 2015. Wiggle It Jiggleit was simply superb in capturing the $300,000 Hap Hansen Progress Pace on Monday evening at Dover Downs in a track record 1:48 2/5 mile.

And last night, Heza Dasha Fire's half-brother, Ima a Fearless Hero, won Los Al's Two Million Futurity (AKA The Deuce). A stunning coup for their dam, Dasha Freda, and unlikely to be duplicated anytime soon.
