2005 Hambletonian Undercard Results


The All-Star Buglers at the Hambletonian
Date: 08/07/05

While the Hambletonian and Hambletonian Oaks were the big show of the day, there were five other stakes on the massive fifteen race card at the Meadowlands.


The $375,000 U.S. Pacing Championship for older horses saw 7-5 second choice Boulder Creek hold off the late charge of 46-1 Georgia Pacific to win by a neck in 1:48 4/5. 3-5 favorite Dr No disappointed in sixth. Winning trainer Mark Silva said, "His last three starts, he's been super. I don't work him too hard once he's made the races. He's kept his weight really good this year. So I just try to keep him happy. I think he's as good now as he's ever been. He's put on about 200 pounds this year, and he's holding it this year, so he's as sharp as he's ever been. I take it one day at a time."

The $357,000 Mistletoe Shalee Pace for 3-year-old fillies saw 4-5 favorite Just Wait Kate break stride at the start, finishing last of ten. 7-1 shot Chotat Milk rallied from 7th to get the win by a head in 1:51 over 2-1 second choice Cabrini Hanover. Winning driver David Miller said, I felt good about my chances on the last turn. I didn't know if she could win or not, but she raced very strong. It was tough getting by Cabrini Hanover, but she fought very game all the way. Virgil [trainer Morgan] always has them in good shape so you know you've got a shot."

In the $300,000 Nat Ray Invitational for older trotters, 12-1 shot Hellava Hush stalked the early pace of Sand Vic then took over the lead in the final furlong to win by a length in 1:51. 2-5 favorite Mr. Muscleman disappointed in fifth. Winning driver Cat Manzi said, "It went as good as it can go. I just went out of the gate trying to stay in range of Ronnie Pierce (with odds-on favorite Mr. Muscleman), thinking I had to beat him, of course. And I ended up in a great spot and Ronnie's horse turned up not right tonight and mine was really on. I'm proud of Hellava Hush. I enjoyed driving him."

The $221,275 Golden Girls Pace for mares saw 6-5 favorite Burning Point take over the lead at the top of the stretch and easily hold off the late charge of Carolina Sunshine to win by a length in 1:49 4/5. Winning driver Ron Pierce said, "She was so good, all I had to do is sit there," said Pierce. "I looked over, nobody was leaving hard. I did. I got to the top relatively easy, about three steps and just sat there. I called on her and she took off."

The Oliver Wendell Holmes Pace for 3-year-olds was split into 2 divisions, each with a $130,000 purse. In the first division, 6-1 shot American Ideal drew away through the lane to win by 5 3/4 lengths over 3-10 favorite Rocknroll Hanover in 1:48 1/5. Driver George Brennan said, "The strategy was to wait for Rocknroll to come, take him a little bit and just stalk him. He put himself there today and he really pounced when I called on him. I was really looking forward to racing him again."
