TAKTER TAKES TWO & BOSTON RED ROCKS REMAINS UNBEATEN IN NJSS ACTION

MANALAPAN, NJ – July 10, 2015 – A pair of Jimmy Takter trained and driven trotters reached the winner’s circle and the pacer Boston Red Rocks remained unbeaten as two-year-olds in six divisions of the New Jersey Sire Stakes were in the spotlight at the Meadowlands on Friday, July 10, 2015.

Silvia [$4.60] rallied in the final eighth of the mile to post her first career win in her second start, a $20,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes for trotting fillies, the first race.


Silvia


The daughter of Muscle Hill- My Favorite Chip, driven by Matt Kakaley and trained by Ron Burke, trotted the mile in 1:56.2, finishing a half-length ahead of Everything N More [Muscle Hill] and two and a half lengths up on Energy Bar [Muscles Yankee] in third.

A $100,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase, Silvia races in the name of Burke Racing Stable, Weaver-Bruscemi, J&T Silva Stables and Joe DiScala Jr. She was bred by Steve Stewart and Junior Yutzy.

Brooklyn Hill [$2.20] delivered like a 1-9 favorite, coasting by the pacesetter Southwind Flash [Muscle Hill] for a two and a quarter length victory in the second race, a $20,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes for trotting colts and geldings. Sigmund [Muscles Yankee] was third by four and a half lengths.

David Miller guided Brooklyn Hill to the 1:56.4 clocking. He tipped the trotter out at the top of the stretch and hand drove him to victory.


Brooklyn Hill


The Muscle Hill - Brooklyn colt, trained by Jonas Czernyson, had finished second by a head in his first start in the opening round of the New Jersey Sire Stakes. Bred by the Order By Stable, he was a $390,000 Harrisburg Sale purchase for the SRF Stable of Boca Raton, FL.

All The Time [$5.00] had the lead at every call and expanded that advantage with driver-trainer Jimmy Takter at the controls. The Muscle Hill-Cantab It All filly won the third race, the second $20,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes division for trotting fillies.


All The Time


All The Time finished a length and three-quarters ahead of Silent Blessings [Muscles Yankee], and it was two and three-quarters to Dream Child [Muscle Hill] in third.

Bred and owned by Marvin Katz and Al J. Libfeld, she now has a win in two starts.

Boston Red Rocks [$2.60] was tested a bit early and pressured on the turn for home and into the stretch but in the end, drew away like a 1-5 shot in the $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes division for pacing colts and geldings, the fourth race.


Boston Red Rocks


Unbeaten in two starts, Boston Red Rocks, a son of Rocknroll Hanover – McGibson, paced the mile in 1:52.2, with Hall of Famer John Campbell driving the Steve Elliott-trainee.

Katies Rocker, who made the last turn challenge, was three and a half lengths back in second at the wire. Winning Linc was third by seven lengths. Both are also sons of Rocknroll Hanover.

Bred by Andray Farm, Boston Red Rocks was a $50,000 Harrisburg Sale purchase by Floridians Peter Blood and Rick Berks.

Jimmy Takter was back in the winner’s circle as the driver-trainer of Bar Hopping [$7.80], who passed 1-5 favorite Southwind Frank in the stretch and held off the challenge of Marion Marauder in the final strides of the sixth race, the $20,000 second New Jersey Sire Stakes division for trotting colts and geldings.


Bar Hopping


Bar Hopping, a son of Muscle Hill – Cocktail Hour, trotted the mile in 1:56.3, finishing a neck ahead of Marion Marauder [Muscle Hill]. It was a length back to Waitlifter K [Muscles Yankee] in third.

Southwind Frank broke stride in the final sixteenth, finished fourth across the wire but was placed sixth for failing to lose ground.

Bred by Douglass Hutchins, Bar Hopping was a $190,000 Harrisburg acquisition by Christina Takter, Hatfield Stables, Marvin Katz and Al J. Libfeld. The colt now has a win and a third in his two starts.

Blue Moon Stride [$8.40], driven by Andrew McCarthy and trained by Mark Harder, fired to the front and scored a gate-to-wire victory in the $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes for pacing fillies, the 11th race.


Blue Moon Stride


The daughter of Rocknroll Hanover – Classic Star paced the mile in 1:53.1, improving her record to a win and a second in two starts.

It was a length back to Show Time Hill [Rocknroll Hanover] in second while 2-5 favorite Rock My Girl [Rocknroll Hanover], who won the opening leg last week, was third by two and a half lengths.

Bred by Perretti Farms, Blue Moon Stride races for Australians Emilio and Maria Rosali
