March 2018

By John Manzi, for NAADA
On an extremely foggy afternoon with intermittent rain falling in New York's southern Catskill Mountains Paul Minore sat a two-hole trip then rallied his old warhorse,Wygant Prince, to a neck victory in the third leg of the North American Amateur Drivers Association (NAADA) trot at Monticello Raceway on Thursday March 29.
After starting from the pole position Minore parked Jennifer Lappe's Here Come Numbers around the first turn then allowed the 10-year-old gelding to take command as the field trotted by the first panel in :29.

Due to another possible Nor’easter next week, Monticello Raceway Race Secretary Eric Warner is switching its regularly scheduled Qualifiers from Wednesday to Tuesday (March 20) this week, the box closes at 12:45 on Monday March 19.

 

Due to Winter Storm Quinn and the timing of the storm, Monticello Raceway has cancelled its live racing program and all simulcasting for Wednesday March 7. A decision on Thursday’s race card will be made Thursday morning at 8am.
