There are five divisions of the George Morton Levy Memorial series for older pacers at Yonkers Raceway on tap for Saturday and four preliminary legs of the Blue Chip Matchmaker for the best older females on Friday. The reigning divisional winners—Foiled Again and Anndrovette—are just a few of the competitors on hand. Let’s take a quick look at each race from a betting perspective.

The hot topic from this past weekend was the removal of driver Joe Bongiorno from two horses on Saturday at the Meadowlands after he said on the in-house broadcast that he was instructed to race Shoobee’s Place and Code Word “conservatively” with an eye towards next week.

How are we supposed to view trainer Kevin Efimetz? Seemingly out of nowhere, the trainer has taken over the stock of the currently suspended Tracy Brainard and went on a head-scratching tear. How many trainers do you know with 19 wins and 10 seconds in 47 starts (through 3/9)? Even better, the crafty conditioner has won 10 of his last 13 races at Saratoga Raceway and Gaming.

On Sunday I will trek to Dover Downs for the first time in my life. While I’m always eager to add a track to the 50-plus racing establishments on my “visited” list, the focus is entirely on the United States Harness Writers Association’s year-end Dan Patch award winners.

Starting Friday, the Meadowlands will once again experiment with added distance racing and more bulky fields. Each night going forward, the tenth race on the card will be contested at the distance of 1 1/16 mile with a field of 12 signed up for competition (FYI, only Harness Eye past performances list the mile times on these races).
