Harness Racing / Re: Dexter Dunn
« Last post by A Merliner on Today at 10:54:27 PM »
Dexter competes against so fewer top drivers than the elite reinsmen did in the glorius 80s-90s heyday.

Given that, it'd be pretty darn hard to put him ahead of Campbell, O'Donnell, Filion or Case.

But to even talk about him in the same conversation with those greats shows how fortunate the few remaining harness fans are to watch Mr. Dunn in his prime.

   Everybody has an opinion as do I.  I  just don't think it necessary to express that opinion to the detriment of others. I agree that Dexter is a great driver. I will also say just for laughs that Aaron Merriman always leads the National driver standings at Northfield where he usually wins 120,000 races a year. I refuse to offer an opinion on that topic and I'm sorry if I came across harsh.

How many tracks or states require a USTA membership for a license ?  Do you need a membership to transfer or register a horse ??

The only thing the USTA can do is suspend someone’s membership. They certainly can pass along any information they obtain to the states governing authority. That’s about it.

Harness Racing / Has this number EVER been called?

Columbus, OH – The U.S. Trotting Association announced Sunday (June 21) the relaunch of the USTA Integrity Tip Line for industry participants to alert the organization of any concerns they have regarding integrity issues in harness racing.

The toll-free number is 833/USTATIP (833/878-2847).  All callers have the option to leave their contact information for a follow-up call from an investigator or not.


USTA President Russell Williams promised some prominent horsemen that the USTA Integrity Tipline would be reestablished. USTA/Mark Hall photo.

“As indicated by USTA President Russell Williams in his published response to several prominent horsemen’s concerns about the care of horses and integrity in harness racing (read here), we are reestablishing our integrity tip line,” said USTA Executive Vice President and CEO Mike Tanner in making the announcement.

“With the plans for implementation of the Hanover Shoe Farms matching fund grant integrity initiative nearing announcement early next month, that could provide funding to assist with the costs of investigations for legitimate information obtained through the tip line,” added Tanner.

When contacting the USTA Integrity Tip Line, callers will be asked to provide as many specific details as possible regarding the situation that are important for the USTA to be aware of including names, horses, dates and locations as well as any other circumstances.

Harness Racing / Re: ELIMINATE HALF MILE RACE TRACKS
« Last post by Hambletonian46 on Today at 06:26:54 PM »
I thought the mile and a sixteenth races at Yonkers were a great idea but  if memory serves the horsemen seemed to not like them. Anything to make post posiiton less relevant would be a good idea.

Have to say the harness racing overseas is a lot more interesting to watch....although I can only imagine what would happen if we tried a circle start here lol.
