  4. By Michael Guerin The Michelle Wallis/Bernie Hackett team took a huge leap forward to a big milestone with a four-win bag at Alexandra Park on Friday night. But Wallis says the haul isn’t indicative of their stable being as strong as some times in recent years, more the right horses being in the right races. The wife and husband team won with three trotters, Rain Mist And Muscle, Invictus and Special Way as well as three-year-old pacer Blitzembye to take them to 199 career wins as a partnership in New Zealand. It is not the first time they have trained four winners on a night at Alexandra

  12. By Joshua Smith, Harness News Desk Southland trainer Steve Baucke brought two horses north to Addington Raceway’s Friday meeting and he went home with the perfect result. Five-year-old mare Swell Time kicked the evening off in style when taking out the opening race on the card, the Teltrac Communications Mobile Pace (1980m). She was launched off the gate by driver Matthew Williamson to take an early lead and Williamson was able to dictate terms throughout, giving Swell Time the reserves to kick clear of her rivals in the straight to win by 2-1/2 lengths over Majorca, with a further 1-3/4 l

Driver Maurice McKendry bided his time off the pace before positioning his charge in the one-one with 450m to go. Christianshavtime improv
  14. BODEXPRESS (c, 4, Bodemeister–Pied a Terre, by City Zip) had been knocking at the door of a graded victory throughout his career and broke through Friday at the highest level with an 11-1 upset in the GI Clark H. at Churchill Downs. Away alertly, the bay pressed from second early as 99-1 shot Phantom Currency (Goldencents) clocked opening splits of :23.39 and :47.94. Headed by Mr. Freeze (To Honor and Serve) to his inside, Bodexpress maintained his position through three-quarters in 1:12.77. Mr. Freeze took over from Phantom Currency approaching the far turn and Bodexpress ranged up on his out
  15. SWIFTSURE (c, 2, Uncle Mo–Island Saint, by Speightstown) had lit up the Fair Grounds main track in his two most recent morning trials and was no secret at 11-10 to get his career off on a high note. Very alertly into stride, the dark bay colt set a pressured pace down inside from the much more experienced Unitedandresolute (Violence). He easily shrugged off that challenge in upper stretch, pinched a winning break and was punched out to score by three lengths as fellow first-starter Blameworthy (Blame) rallied belatedly. A $95,000 Keeneland September RNA, Swiftsure is the first foal from his da
