MR MUSCLEMAN MAKES IT TWO STRAIGHT AT THE MEADOWLANDS

April 29, 2007 - East Rutherford, NJ - The Meadowlands

MR MUSCLEMAN MAKES IT TWO STRAIGHT AT THE MEADOWLANDS

Mr Muscleman [$2.40, $2.10, $2.10] crushed his Father Foley foes with another gate-to-wire victory in the $20,000 second leg of series on Sunday afternoon at the Meadowlands.

With driver Ron Pierce at the lines, Mr Muscleman strolled through fractions of :27.2, :56.2 and 1:26.2, while easily repelling the challenge of Beach Nut Brand. He pulled away to a three and a half-length victory in 1:53.1.


Trained by Noel Daley and owned by Adam Victor & Son Stable, Mr Muscleman is the richest Standardbred in training with just under $3.4 million in earnings. The 2005 Trotter of the Year has won 35 of 65 lifetime starts and also received divisional honors in 2003 and 2004.

The seven-year-old gelding has been invited to race in the prestigious Elitlopp at Solvalla Racecourse in Sweden on Sunday, May 27. Racing fans will be able to watch and wager on the event live at the Meadowlands that morning.

MR. MUSCLEMAN RETURNS AND CAPTURES FATHER FOLEY OPENER

Mr. Muscleman [$3.20, $2.60, $2.40] returned to the track in winning fashion, capturing the $20,000 opening leg of the Father Foley Memorial series on Sunday afternoon at the Meadowlands. 
Trained by Noel Daley and driven by Ron Pierce, Mr. Muscleman took control of the lead around the backside and held off San Remo Kosmos [$3.60, $3.20] at the wire to win by a half-length in 1:53.3.  It was two lengths back to Man About Town [$3.60] in third.
Mr. Muscleman, the richest Standardbred racehorse in training with a career bankroll of $3.38 million, had his 2005 season cut short after a suspensory injury and was sidelined after a brief campaign last year due to concerns with his knee. 
Owners Adam Victor Jr. and Sr. are hoping for the opportunity to take the seven-year-old gelded son of Muscles Yankee overseas next month to compete in Sweden’s famed Elitlopp at Solvalla Racecourse.
The Father Foley Memorial series continues next Sunday, April 29.

Mr Muscleman Takes Trotting Classic
 

July 30, 2005

Mr Muscleman [$4.20, $2.20] extended his winning streak to nine with a two and three quarter-length victory over Hellava Hush [$4.20, $2.20] in the $250,000 Trotting Classic, the 11th race tonight at the Meadowlands.

Hez Striking [$2.10] was third by three lengths. Mr Muscleman trotted the mile and a sixteenth in 1:58.4, a world, stakes and world record, eclipsing the 2:00 mark set by Plesac on June 8, 2002 at the Meadowlands.

"It doesn't seem to matter to him too much how you race him," said winning driver Ron Pierce. "He just seems to get across that wire first. I fell into the hole for just about three steps. I could have stayed in there longer but Mr Muscleman felt really good so I took him back out and didn't really say anything to him until we straightened up, then I chased him a little bit home. Noel [trainer Noel Daley] is just an unbelievable trainer. He does a great job with all his horses and this just happens to be a special horse. He rises to the occasion. I just appreciate him. Noel, [owners] Adam Victor, Senior and Junior gave me the honor to drive this horse, and it's a thrill. I'm very happy. If he's as good as he was tonight, I don't see how anybody can get close to him in the Nat Ray."

"He's very easy to train," said Daley. "He does everything you tell him. He's a pleasure to have. You really get to appreciate a horse like this. He always appears like he's getting better. He's a big, strong horse. He's always been a tall horse. Now he's filled out and come into himself. There's no reason why he can't go on for another couple years. After the Nat Ray, he has three weeks off, he goes to Canada for a month, has a week or two off, then he goes to Lexington. If all things are all right, he still has a lot of racing to do yet. He's a gelding and as long as he keeps coming back the way he is, he's going to be around for a few years. Like Fool's Goal and Magician, great old geldings, they come around for a lot of years, and I think he can do the same thing."


Mr. Muscleman wins the Maple Leaf Trot

It was billed as the Battle of the Sexes, the race of the year, a match between two Breeders Crown champions Mr. Muscleman, North America's top male trotter, and Peaceful Way, the continent's best female trotter, but it wasn't meant to be. Mr. Muscleman powered home an easy winner while Peaceful Way broke stride along the backstretch and was eliminated from the race.

It was billed as the Battle of the Sexes, the race of the year, a match between two Breeders Crown champions Mr. Muscleman, North America's top male trotter, and Peaceful Way, the continent's best female trotter. So much for the hype. At the finish of the classic, it was all Mr. Muscleman, the defending Maple Leaf champion, a career earner of over $3.2 million and a track record holder at both Mohawk and Woodbine, as he bulled his way to an easy five and one-half length win in a stakes record mile of 1:52.1. Muscles Marinara came on for second, while Mystical Sunshine was third. Peaceful Way, a divisional champion in Canada at two and three and unbeaten in seven outings this year, gave it her best shot early, when she tried to chase Mr. Muscleman after he'd taken the lead before the half. But it ended early for the daughter of Angus Hall, as she made an uncharacteristic break and lost all chance. With Ron Pierce at the controls, Mr Muscleman took over from Abbey Road C after the first quarter. While pressed by Elegant Man at the half, Mr Muscleman continued to motor, repelling all challengers. From there to the wire, it was a tour de force, as the giant gelding posted yet another romp on his impeccable resume.
