THE NEAHDC BATTLE GOING DOWN TO THE WIRE

MARIO MARTELLOTTA SCORED A HUGE WIN THIS WEEK WITH HIS VICTORY  IN AN AMATEUR EVENT.
MARIO GUIDED SILVER RIVER TO A FIVE LENGTH VICTORY IN A QUICK (VERY QUICK) 1:54.3,
TYING HIS LIFETIME BEST.

BY VIRTUE OF THAT WIN THE RACE TO BE THE AMATEUR CLUB POINT LEADER IS WIDE OPEN AND WILL
BE DECIDED ON THE LAST DAY OF AMATEUR ACTION.

HOLLYWOOD COULDN’T HAVE WRITTEN A BETTER SCRIPT. THE THREE IN CONTENTION, BILL ABDELNOUR,
MARIO AND JOHN SEARS HAVE BEEN BATTLING ALL SEASON LONG, ALL SHARING THE LEAD AT ONE
TIME OR ANOTHER. IT WILL FINALLY BE DECIDED ON THE LAST WEEK.

THE POINT STANDINGS, GOING INTO THAT FINAL WEEK, LOOK LIKE THIS; ABDELNOUR IS THE CURRENT
LEADER WITH 70 POINTS , MARTELLOTTA AND SEARS ARE TIED WITH 67 POINTS.
IT DOSEN’T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS.

 
NEWS & NOTES:  LAST WEEK’S COOKOUT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS WITH SPECIAL THANKS GOING OUT TO
THE HHANE, SOM AND THE NEAHDC WHO SPONSORED THE COOKOUT AS WELL AS CHEF’S MARIO AND CHERYL.


  THE RACE SECRETARY HAS INVITED THE AMATEUR GROUP TO RACE AT SCARBOROUGH ON
OCTOBER 25TH (SATURDAY). SEVERAL MEMBERS HAVE ALREADY SAID YES.

WE ARE WAITING FOR FUTHER DETAILS AND AS SOON AS WE HEAR WE WILL PASS IT ON.

“SUPER MARIO” CAPTURES NEAHDC 2013 TITLE

MARIO MARTELLOTTA AND FAITH’S TATTLER ROLLED TO VICTORY ON THE FINAL
DAY OF RACING AT PLAINRIDGE RACECOURSE.

ALONG WITH THAT VICTORY HE BECAME THE AMATEUR LEADING DRIVER.
  A POSITION HE HAD HELD FOR NEARLY THE ENTIRE SEASON.

MARTELLOTTA, A SEASONED HORSEMAN, HAD STEPPED ASIDE FOR NEARLY FOURTEEN
YEARS BEFORE MAKING HIS COMEBACK INTO THE SPORT HE LOVES. 
 
IN 2013 HIS HORSES WERE IN THE MONEY NEARLY 50% OF THE TIME,
PRETTY GOOD FOR A MAN WHO'S BEEN AWAY FOR THAT LONG.

CONGRATULATIONS
TO OWNER, DRIVER, AND TRAINER
MARIO MARTELLOTTA FOR AND OUTSTANDING SEASON
AND THE NEW ENGLAND AMATEUR HARNESS DRIVING CHAMPION!
