Harness: Ben Franklin participants on Post Time with Mike and Mike


Post Time with Mike and Mike has a power-packed program lined up for Thursday (June 28) at 7:00 PM Eastern.

In what has the potential to be one of the greatest races in harness racing history (the Ben Franklin Final at Pocono), connections from the four top contenders will have the opportunity to make their case as to why their charge will get the job done. Trainers George Teague (Wiggle It Jiggleit), Jimmy Takter (Always B Miki) and Larry Rheinheimer (Freaky Feet Pete), along with owner Robert Cooper (Mel Mara) will discuss their charge's prospects in the $500,000 final this Saturday for aged pacers.

Pocono Racing Marketing Director Jennifer Starr will also join the program to talk about what racing fans can expect attending the races live this Saturday.

Not only will all eyes be focused on the Pocono Mountains Saturday, but some of the finest aged trotters on the planet will square off in Ohio this weekend. Northfield Park Track Announcer Ayers Ratliff will preview the Cleveland Trotting Classic at his home track.

Our ongoing series with Running Aces Casino and Racetrack continues, as Track Announcer Darin Gagne sits down with talented Trainer/Driver Rick Magee to talk about his career in harness racing.
