Sunday is Miller’s time, with induction into Hall of Fame


When harness racing driver David Miller headed from Ohio to the East Coast more than a decade ago, he thought it would be temporary.

On Sunday, the 49-year-old Miller will be inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame during ceremonies at the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame in Goshen, N.Y.

Cutler could produce historic mile


Harness racing fans could witness the first sub-1:50 trotting race on a mile track Saturday at the Meadowlands, but if not then, it is probably just a matter of time.

Saturday’s $175,000 Arthur J. Cutler Memorial for older trotters features a speedy group of 10 horses, including newly minted world champion Sebastian K. The former Swedish star won his Cutler elimination last week, which was his North American debut, in a world-record-equaling 1:50.1.

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.
