Sunday, April 12, 2015 Though Dealt a Serious Setback, Star Swedish Trainer Bergh Ready to Tackle US Racing By Perry Lefko Top Swedish horseman Robert Bergh, who will be training a string of horses in the U.S. for the first time, is looking for someone to oversee seven two-year-olds based in Florida following the sudden passing last month of 60-year-old Ken Oscarsson. Speaking from his training base in Travstall, Bergh told Harness Racing Update he is working on a plan to find a full-time replacement for Oscarsson, a fellow Swede. "I have not made a decision about that," Bergh said. "It will be someone (working) Top Swedish trainer Robert Bergh with me, but I don't know if I will be has set a US based operation sending people (to the U.S.) and work there or I (hire) a trainer (from the U.S.). Everything was going like I'd hoped when we started, so it was very sad what happened with Ken. It's tough to figure out now." Either way, Bergh plans to control the operation from Sweden. "I've had discussions with a couple of people to see if they are interested and how they would do it," he said. "I may have an answer in three or four weeks. But I don't want to talk more about that because I don't want to say their names." W hen asked if he would consider hiring fellow countryman Jimmy Takter, who last year was voted the top trainer in the U.S. for the fourth time, Bergh said: "Absolutely, but I think he would like to train the horses himself." Bergh just returned to Sweden from a 10-day trip to Florida to oversee the horses' training at Sunshine Meadows. He had been making regular trips to watch the horses every five to six weeks prior to Oscarsson's sudden passing. Following Oscarsson's passing, his brother asked retired trainer Mario Zuanetti to help jog the horses. Bergh horses were bought during or after they went through the Lexington Sales. Two of the horses, Songndance Hanover (Donato Hanover) and Curious De Vie (Credit W inner), are owned by Daniel and Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks. The two colts are the most expensive of the seven - Curious De Vie was purchased for $160,000 and Songndance for $105,000. The other five are Luck By Lindy (Lucky Chucky), All Of The Time (Donato Hanover), Muscle Hustle (Muscle Mass), Cantab The Man (Cantab Hall) and Keep It Classy (Yankee Glide), who is the only filly among the seven. Unlike some past Swedish trainers who have come to the U.S. and stayed - most recently Åke Svanstedt, who made quite a debut last year guiding Sebastian K to a Dan Patch Award as the top Older Male Pacer and whose stable won 68 of 326 starts and more than $2.3 million - Bergh has no plans to come to America and set up shop. "I don't want to move to the USA," he said. "I only want to try to train young horses there and hope some of them can go in the bigger races there. I like the USA very much. Every year I have a holiday in Florida. I like to race there after Adrian Chip (placed second) in the (2007) Hambletonian and did well in other races." Adrian Chip raced his two-year-old year with trainer Todd Schadel and then Per Henriksen, setting a world record with a time of 1:55 3/5, winning an elimination of the Matron at Dover Downs. The horse went on to win the race, and was later sold on behalf of German owner Ernst Gerbaulet to Bergh for the ownership group called the 3 Pucks Stable that included NHL star Peter Forsberg. "I had a great time with Adrian Chip," Bergh said. "I liked it so much I wanted to come back with some more horses (continued on next page) HarnessRacingUpdate.com • 4/12/15 PAGE 2 of 8 to race. W hen I started discussions about it with my owners, they had horses in France and Sweden and they wanted to try (racing in the U.S.) it with me. W e were not 100 percent sure how to do it. W e had discussions with Ken and came to a deal with him, so we were ready to buy horses in Lexington. Many of my owners (from Sweden and France) wanted to have a horse in the USA. "I want to see if I can get good results with young horses like in Sweden and France." Henriksen, a 69-year-old Norway native who has been based in North America since 1980 and trained Nuclear Kosmos to win the 1986 Hambletonian, said he is not surprised Bergh has no plans to move his stable full-time to the U.S. "Horse racing in Sweden is a pretty big deal," Henriksen said. "The trainers and drivers are treated like hockey stars are in Canada. It's tough to be the big shot there and to go and be just one of the guys in North America. He likes his glory." He also said Bergh will discover the way that trainers develop two-year-olds in North America is the opposite of the way it's done in Europe because of the push to take advantage of the purses. "Over (in Sweden and France), they don't race a lot of two-year-olds," Henriksen said. "Even if they buy them as yearlings, they might not race them until the middle of their three-year-old year. That's just the way it is. That's the way owners expect and that's the way everybody is brought up. "The biggest challenge I found in North America when I got started on my own after working for Howard Beissinger a couple of years before that is it's a requirement (by the owners) that these two-year-olds come out to race. "But know this: his owners are European so they might not be that demanding. European owners are much more patient than American and Canadian owners." Maven Second in Sweden By Joakim Lindqvist JÄGERSO, SWEDEN - Maven finished second on Saturday in the L.C. Petersons-Broddas Minne at Jägersro racetrack in Sweden. She was defeated by 10-year-old Noras Bean, former winner of the Prix de France in 2014. Maven made a bold move on the backstretch, coming three-wide from the position of fourth on the outside, but had no cover between 800 to 400 meters to go. Noras Bean won by 1 ½ lengths in the time of 1:52.4 (continued on next page) HarnessRacingUpdate.com • 4/12/15 PAGE 3 of 8 (mile rate). The race was contested at one five-sixteenths miles. "I was a bit surprised that Noras Bean was so strong," said Maven's groom Tobias Gustafsson. Maven was a big favourite on this day, just as she was when winning at Solvalla racetrack two weeks ago. She was the early morning pick in 19 of 20 newspapers and a banker in 8. Maven's race was the seventh on this day, and so far, all except one was won by the early leader. Maven had a post position in the second tier (10), while Noras Bean had a post position in the front tier (2). The outside conditions were just perfect. A clear blue sky, high temperature and a very quick track. "No complaints," said Gustafsson with just one minute to the start. After 500 meters Noras Bean was on the lead, in a high pace, and made the first lap in 11.5. It was a constant high pace all the way. W ith the track favoring speed, there were no major changes in the running order. Maven was biding her time as fourth on the outside. Maven kept the pace all the way in. "Thumbs up for her today," Gustafsson said. "And Johnny was satisfied, jogging her around the track after the race. He likes her, and she's now standing in the box as if she's not raced at all." Maven got a really quick work before Solvalla two weeks ago. This Tuesday she was prepared much easier with 1.24/2100 meter with cover. Johnny Takter said she was calm – and eager. At Solvalla she showed a bit more spirit in the warm up so Gustafsson then changed her bit. Today she was more calm in the warm up, but still had the same bit as at Solvalla. "Maven was more controlled today," said Gustafsson. Maven is not off for Italy in the beginning of May. She has accepted a wild card for the Olympic Trot at Åby racetrack in Gothenburg, April 25. The Olympic Trot is the first major race in Sweden this year for international trotters, with $170,000 to the winner. There Maven will face, among others, Voltigeur de Myrt, who finished second in the Prix d'Amerique in January. There is also Digital Ink, who she met in last year's Elitloppet at Solvalla, and On Track Piraten, who won the Prix du Luxembourg at Vincennes, also in January. And, of course, the today's winner Noras Bean has earned a spot in the race but likely won’t make it as he was lame after the event and did not go to the winner’s circle. "He's got a heart of gold, but this does not look good," said Noras Bean's trainer Ulf Stenströmer. On Maven, Strenströmer said: "I was impressed by Maven at Solvalla, where my Your Highness tried to reach her, when she broke stride. She'd never done it anyway. But Noras Bean is a better horse than Your Highness." Solvato, the full brother to Shake It Cerry, who raced (continued on next page) HarnessRacingUpdate.com • 4/12/15 PAGE 4 of 8 against Maven several times in France this winter, and while there spent his time at the same farm as Maven, was withdrawn today, due to a stretched muscle. Solvato won the Olympic Trot last year and as a title-defender, he's got a free ticket to the race in two weeks. "Maven is much smoother today than she was in France," Gustafsson said. "There, she could twist her head slightly to the left, but at Solvalla she kept her head straight, and she did so again today."

Pole-sitting W indsong Jack (Brian Sears, $6.20) won the opening, $50,000 division, getting by Mach it So (Tim Tetrick) late and edging way by a length-and-a-quarter in a season's-best 1:52.4. Mach's Beach Boy (Pat Lachance) was third. It was 9-5 favorite Bettor's Edge (Yannick Gingras) making the lead and setting sail through intervals of :27.2, :56.4 and 1:23.4. Eventually tackled by Mach it So, the leader broke in the final turn. W indsong Jack was able to extricate himself, then go past a stubborn Mach it So. For second choice W indsong Jack, a 5-year-old Santanna Blue Chip gelding traiend by Jennifer Sabot for owner Little Bapa LLC, it was his second win in eight seasonal starts (1-for-4 in series) The exacta paid $19.80, with no triple wagering offered due to the short field Odds-on choice Take it Back Terry (George Brennan, $2.90) had few issues in the second division. Quarter-moving from post No. 2, "Terry" stole way a cheap second quarter (:27.1, :56.4), then easily held sway (1:25.2, 1:53.1) by a no-issues three-quarters of a length. A solid, first-up effort from Frankie's Dragon (Sears) found him getting second, with Fat Man's Alley (Jason Bartlett) third. For "Terry," a 6-year-old W estern Terror gelding co-owned (as Burke Racing) by (trainer) Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura, he's now 4-for-12 this season (2-for-3 in series). The exacta paid $23.40, with the triple returning $84. The evening's final series event saw a contested front end involving Clear Vision (Gingras) and Lucan Hanover (Tetrick). The former rebuffed the advances of the latter (:26.3, :54.1), with 7-10 choice Michael's Power (Dan Dube) in behind. The early fractions made this a closer's contest, and after a 1:23 three-quarters, the back of the bus was heard from. A from-last Heez Orl Black N (Sears, $29.20), starting outside his five foes, prevailed in a hands-and-knees (:30.1) final quarter. He whipped another longshot in National Debt (Eric Carlson) by a length in 1:53.1. Lucan Hanover held third despite a brutal trip, while "Michael" wound up last. For fourth choice Heez Orl Black N, a 7-year-old Down Under gelding trained by Anita Vallee for co-owners Shaun Vallee and D P V Racing Stable, it was his fourth win in 11 '15 tries. The exacta paid $323, with the triple returning $1,457. It should be noted that P H Supercam and Beach Memories, sitting 1-2 in series points after three rounds, were both given this round off for good behavior, while Foiled Again, looking to regain his near-$7 million form, also was not entered. Series standings, through fourth leg…1-P H Supercam (225 points), 2t-Beach Memories (200), 2t-Michael’s Power (200), 2t-Take it Back Terry (200), 5t-Fat Man’s Alley (187), 5t-W indsong Jack (187), 7-Polak A (175), 8-Sapphire City (170). Finals for the Blue Chip Matchmaker and George Morton Levy Memorial Pacing Series are set for Saturday, Apr. 25 (purses for both TBA). Note that since no one took Saturday night’s Pick 5, Monday’s gimmick begins with a carryover of $4,361.40 ($10,000 guaranteed pool). The Raceway’s live season continues Monday night (post time 7:10 PM), Tuesday (1 PM, second round of YR/SOA of NY Bonus Trotting Series), then Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 PM, with Matchmaker and Levy series continuing Fridays and Saturdays).

A solid group of ten three-year-old pacing colts and geldings lined up Saturday evening for the final of the three-week Youthful series. Legion Of Boom, the 4/5 favourite, came into the final on a three-race win streak and had a chance at a series sweep. The action was hot right from the start, as the first-quarter saw a trio of horses battle around the opening turn. Dialamara, who was three-wide, would come away with the lead as the field entered the backstretch. American Rock, who got away fourth, came charging first up in the second-quarter to engage Dialamara in a duel. American Rock would eventually clear to the lead at the mid-way point, but not after a rock-solid half-mile clocking of :55.1. Around the final turn, Team Captain was pressing at the leader first up, while Legion Of Boom was placed second-over. American Rock posted a third-quarter of :28.1 to reach the three-quarter pole in 1:23.2. In the stretch, American Rock dug deep and would not allow his rivals to get by, as he reached the wire first in a career-best 1:52. Dialamara came up the rail to finish second by a length and a quarter, while Pantheon Hanover made a rally on the far outside to finish third. Team Captain, who was beat less than two-lengths, and Legion Of Boom had to settle for fourth and fifth, respectively. A son of Rocknroll Hanover, American Rock is trained by Ben W allace for owner Brad Grant. The sophomore pacing colt came into Saturday’s final off a 1:54.1 victory in last week’s second leg and had finished second by only a head in an opening leg division on March 28. American Rock, who did not race as a two-year-old, now has a record of five wins from eight starts and earnings of $57,250. The W allace trainee returned $7.10 to win. In order to be eligible to the Youthful series, the three-year-old pacing colts and geldings had to be non-winners of three-races or $15,000 in 2014. Father Patrick’s Little Brother Wins Meadowlands Qualifier Hambletonian nominee W hom Shall I Fear, who is a full brother to Dan Patch Award winner Father Patrick, captured a qualifier yesterday morning at the Meadowlands. W ith trainer Jimmy Takter driving, the son of Cantab Hall went in 1:59.1 and won by a length over Workout W onder, who is also Hambo eligible. W hom Shall I Fear sold for $475,000 in 2013 at Lexington. He went 0 for 5 last year, but Takter has said he still believes the horse has a bright future. Takter is also hoping for better things from Canepa Hanover in 2015. The Muscle Hill colt costs $300,000 at the sales but was just 1 for 6 last year. He broke stride in his qualifier yesterday and finished fifth. His race was won by W icker Hanover, who is not Hambletonian eligible. Mac Nichol’s Colt is Fourth in Arkansas Derby Madefromlucky, the colt co-owned by prominent harness owner Mac Nichol, finished a distant fourth in yesterday’s Arkansas Derby. The race was won in a romp by American Pharoah, who turned in one of the most impressive victories in a Derby prep races in years. Madefromlucky appears to have enough points to earn a starting slot in the “Run for the Roses,” but, if he goes, will be among the longer shots in the field.

Box 2200 • Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510 • www.preferredequine.com Foal Shortage...Maybe Less is More After reading a variety of opinions concerning why there is a foal shortage, most will agree that primary reason is that the lesser mares and stallions are not being bred because the breeders and owners of these horses cannot make money. Then I hear ideas as to how this can be remedied. I have to admit, I did find this amusing. How to save the horses who are not self-sustaining. Is there any other business who tries to improve the worst part of their business instead of concentrating on the area that is profitable and increase that ? Do we really want to save the equivalent of 5 to 15 claimers so there are enough horses to fill a card so the track can make money? Like any other business the strong survive. W e should not try to revive the class of horse that for the most part cannot break even. Instead, less may be more. I realize the tracks need a certain amount of races and handle to be profitable. W hy not try cards that are 8 or 9 races? Open the classes to have more horses eligible to attract bigger fields. Have 3 or 4 options for each class. Each race should have 12 horses. I realize the negative of saying the lower class horse won't be competitive. Take the lesser class eligibles who entered and have them draw to choose their post. The others would be in the open draw. Increase the purses accordingly so horsemen wont scream .This can be done because you have eliminated a few races and these 12horse races will have larger handles then 6 and 7-horse fields. This may not work but it may be worth a try. I seriously doubt the horse shortage will be reversed. Breeders are not in this to lose money. A vast majority or (continued on next page) HarnessRacingUpdate.com • 4/12/15 PAGE 6 of 8 owners are in this for the passion and fun. That said, no one stays in a business to knowingly lose money forever . Richard Young Bob Marks Weighs in on Foal Shortage In all my years breeding, marketing and selling Perretti horses, I was always aware of the cost factor involved. Years ago, we'd figure $15,000 over stud fee was the break even point in getting the yearling from conception to market. Nowadays I'm sure it's more. Last I looked, somewhere in the vicinity of 75% of all yearlings sell for $25,000 or less which means the remaining 25% have a lot of dead weight to carry up the elusive hill of profit. W hile most yearling buyers are really seeking that super stakes colt or filly, and will pay handsomely for what they perceive to be a top prospect, there's not enough of them to offset the cost of producing those animals that will eventually populate the overnight classes at the racetracks . Consequently, breeders manufacture, and often take back horses like our own Rockeyed Optimist, Fanticipation and Rockaround Sue that become productive earners while the handful we do oversell can't balance the bottom line. Bob Marks Foal Shortage? The Solutions Are Complicated Does anyone really think that the doubling of an $8,000 purse to a $16,000 purse for a maiden race will make a long term impact on harness racing ? Yes, the winner of that race could be paid $4,000 more, but their future racing career would remain the same. I doubt yearling buyers would be chomping at the bit to collect a few more dollars in a maiden race with all of harness racing’s other problems. David Haaker Bring Back the Show Survivor Contest Everyone is aware that simulcasting handle is super important to a track's total handle these days. For years people throughout the U.S. played the Survivor Contest at the Meadowlands on their computers. Thousands of people used their handicapping skills each racing day in the hope of winning one of the few prizes. This March the contest was dropped with nary a word of explanation. I wonder why? W hen a bettor from Anywhere U.S.A. is interested in a race at the Meadowlands in the contest, isn't it logical to assume that he might also place a wager on that race?
