Holloway’s Dynamic Duo


Story by Ken Weingartner/Harness Racing Communications/USTA

Trainer Joe Holloway hopes to have a good time racing 4-year-old female pacers Shebestingin and Somwherovrarainbow this season and thinks both mares could have strong campaigns as they make the jump to facing older foes.

Shebestingin, who last year set the record for the fastest mile ever by a female pacer when she won in 1:47 at Lexington’s Red Mile, likely is two weeks from qualifying. Somwherovrarainbow, who joined Holloway’s stable at the end of last year, makes her seasonal debut Friday night in the B1/A2 handicap for fillies and mares at Meadowlands Racetrack.
