ABDELNOUR VICTORIOUS ON FINAL DAY

THE STAGE WAS SET FOR A WIDE OPEN RACE WITH THE THREE TOP CONTENDERS JUST THREE POINTS
APART, NOT TO MENTION A FOURTH ENTRY JUST COMING OFF A HUGE WIN IN 1:54.2.

THIS WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A WIDE OPEN AFFAIR, BUT SOME THINGS NEVER GO ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPT.
WHEN THE WINGS FOLDED BILL ABDELNOUR HAD ONE THING ON HIS MIND, THE LEAD.

 A VERY FORMIDABLE GROUP WENT TO POST IN WHAT WAS TO BE THE FINAL AMATEUR CLUB RACE.
LEAVING FROM THE THREE HOLE ABDELNOUR PUT HIS FIVE YEAR OLD GELDING ARTISTIC FLIGHT
RIGHT ON THE ENGINE AND NEVER LOOKED BACK AS HE CROSSED THE FINISH LINE IN 1:56.3.
FINISHING SECOND WAS DAVE ZUCKERMAN AND DONTGETNSAMSONAWAY. ROUNDING OUT THE
TRIFECTA WAS DENVER ARTIST AND DRIVER FRAN WITKOWSKI. 


 THE 2014 AMATEUR SEASON, ALTHOUGH SOMEWHAT  ABREVIATED, WAS A VERY COMPETITIVE ONE.
MANY OF THE RACES WERE CLOSE AND SOME OF THE TIMES WERE VERY FAST.
NOW WE HUNKER DOWN FOR A LONG FALL AND WINTER BREAK WHICH GIVES US PLENTY OF TIME
TO THINK AND PREPARE FOR WHAT WE HOPE WILL BE A 2015 TO REMEMBER.

THANKS TO PLAINRIDGE RACECOURSE AND ALL THE DRIVERS AND TRAINERS WHO HELPED
MAKE THIS SEASON POSSIBLE.

STAY WARM,

BILLY “A”

“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!
