But you have to start your career sometime and that sometime was Saturday, June 22 at the Meadowlands and who better to begin your career with then in the Jimmy Takter Stable.

Trixton was triumphant in his trotting debut. The bay colt, driven by Yannick Gingras, got away in fourth place after the start, then worked his way into third position and moved to the outside and despite being third by four and half lengths at the top of the stretch, was able to close with a :28.3 last quarter mile to win by a head over Hill I Am (Muscle Hill) driven by John Campbell in 1:59.2.

Trixton is a half brother to $501,000 winner, Impressive Kemp and, 1:51.4 winner Highscore Kemp ($111,000).

It’s a long road ahead to earn back the $360,000 for owners Brixton Medical Ab of Orsundsbro, Sweden and Christina Takter of East Windsor, NJ, but starting off your career with a victory is the best debut you could want.

And that was only the beginning of the day for Takter Stable. In the every next race, Takter’s top two-year-old trotting filly, Shake It Cerry, make her second start a memorable one as she led from start to finish for driver Ron Pierce in an eye-popping 1:56.4 mile.

The daughter of Donato Hanover by Solveig (Yankee Glide) drew away from the field at the top of the stretch and won by seven and three-quarter lengths. Her last quarter mile a very impressive :27.4. She is a homebred filly owned by the Solveig Racing Partners of East Windsor, NJ.

Shake It Cerry is a full sister to Solvato, 3,1:53.2f ($300,000) and a half sister to Dontyouforgetit, 3,1:54.1f ($441,000). It was the third straight victory in baby races for Shake It Cerry.

But having your two top prospects win Saturday morning was only the beginning for the Takter Stable. It wasn’t enough with the two early winners using catch drivers so Jimmy then jumped in the race bike and drove the winners of the 8th and 9th baby races.

Both trotting fillies, Takter won with Love Detective (Ken Warkentin – Nichole Kraft) leading from start to finish in 1:59.3 by one and a half lengths and then came right back to win again with Marcella Hall (Deweycheatumnhowe – Margarita Hall) in 1:58.4. In that race Marcella Hall sat a pocket trip and come on after the three-quarters and won by a half length.

And to cap the day’s event is just wasn’t enough that Jimmy Takter had to have winners in four trotting races, he also had to show that he is amberdextrious in harness racing by also training a pacing colt winner. And it was not just any-old pacing colt, but one who stopped the teletimer in 1:53.3. That was the third fastest mile by any two-year-old in North America this year.

Tellitlikeitis, sired by Well Said from the Real Artist mare, Kikikatie, was driven by Yannick Gingras and after sitting in the two-hole the entire mile came on late to win going away by two and one-half lengths, his last quarter mile in :27.2.

Kikikatie was a world class pacing mare with a record at age 3 of 1:50.3 and a career winner of $1,268,000. Plus she is also world class as a broodmare with five straight foals all making the races, the slowest (excluding Tellitlikeitis) with a record of 1:50! Tellitlikeitis is a half brother to Rockin Image p,3, 1:48.2m ($901,000); Grams Legacy p,4,1:50 ($160,000); Time To Roll p,4,1:49.3 ($606,000) and to Rockin Amadeu p,3,1:49.3 ($545,000).

Tellitlikeitis was one of four freshman pacers that the Takter Stable raced today at the Meadowlands.
