Snowstorm Hanover is no longer winless in 2017 after taking the Arden Downs for 3-year-old colt trotters

Three-year-old trotters and 2-year-old pacers of both sexes battled in Arden Downs action on the Adios Day undercard Saturday at The Meadows.

The sophomore trotting colts raced in one $45,000 flight, and it would be Hambletonian-eligible Snowstorm Hanover (Matt Kakaley) winning from first-over in 1:55.  It was the seventh career victory for Snowstorm Hanover, a Muscle Massive colt trained by Ron Burke for owners Burke Racing Stable LLC., Frank Baldachino, Phil Collura, and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.  Last year's Valley Victory and Matron champion, Snowstorm Hanover has now earned $371,589 and paid $15.40 to win after being sent off at 6-1 today.

Three-year-old trotting fillies

In the first $28,478 flight, Broadway Concert (Corey Callahan) led most of the way, but was passed past three-quarters by Mimosa Hanover (Mike Wilder).  Broadway Concert battled back in the lane, though, and got back around Mimosa Hanover to win by half a length in 1:55 1/5.

A daughter of Broadway Hall, Broadway Concert is trained by John Butenschoen for owner Bay Pond Racing Stable.  She is now a four-time winner in her career, and she has banked $45,389.  She was dispatched at 5-2 and returned $7.00 to win.

1-5 choice Crann Tara (Tim Tetrick) rolled in the other $28,878 division, taking the lead from Trixie Dust (Tony Hall) at the 1:27 three-quarters and winning by two lengths in 1:56 2/5.

Linda Toscano trains Crann Tara, a Donato Hanover filly, for owner W.J. Donovan.  She scored the seventh win of her life, and she has now put away $113,452.  She paid $2.40 to win.

Two-year-old pacing colts

The connections of Adios morning-line second choice Fear The Dragon - driver David Miller, trainer Brian Brown, and owner Emerald Highlands Farm - won the $28,475 opening split for this group with Whatstroublnurocky, who turned a second-over trip into a 1:53 2/5 tally.

A gelded son of A Rocknroll Dance, Whatstroublnurocky broke his maiden in his third try, and he has earned $14,237.  He was the 4-5 favorite and returned $3.60 to win.

Disorder (Yannick Gingras) bagged the other $28,875 test, leading through stations of 27 3/5, 56 2/5, and 1:24 3/5 on his way to a 1:53 1/5 victory.

It was the first lifetime win for Disorder, a Somebeachsomewhere colt trained by Ron Burke for owners Burke Racing Stable LLC., Purnel And Libby Silva, Weaver Bruscemi LLC., and Diamond Creek Racing.  Disorder now shows a bankroll of $15,937 and paid $9.80 to win as a 7-2 shot.

Two-year-old pacing fillies

Reign On Me (David Miller) scored as the 6-5 public choice in the first $23,165 grouping.  She came first-over out of fourth past the half, took the lead in the stretch, and pulled clear to win in 1:53 2/5.

The victorious Well Said filly is trained by Nifty Norman for owner Jennifer Dalton Stb LLC.  Reign On Me won for the first time in her career, and she has now put away $15,282.  She returned $4.40 to win.

The biggest upset of the Arden Downs occurred in the other $24,015 split as 18-1 Cult Icon (Tyler Smith) worked out a second-over trip from post nine and rolled by the leaders in the lane to prevail in 1:54 2/5.

Cult Icon is a daughter of Bettor's Delight trained by co-owner Trent Stohler, who shares ownership with Tim Graber, Single G Stables, and Stately Gaits Stable.  Cult Icon has a record of 3-1-0 from four trips behind the gate, and she has pocketed $27,632.  She paid $38.00 to win.
