CALLAHAN MAKES FIRST TRIP TO VERNON DOWNS A MEMORABLE ONE
Driver Corey Callahan might be best known as the driver of top 3-year-old trotter, Googoo Gaagaa; but, he made his first ever trip to Vernon Downs a memorable one by winning the $200,000 Credit Winner with longshot Hot Shot Blue Chip.
Hot Shot Blue Chip's upset of world champion Chapter Seven is featured on this week's episode of "Inside Harness Racing." The show airs today (Wednesday) at 6:00 PM and again at 10:30 PM on Time Warner Cable Sports throughout Upstate New York. It'll also be replayed tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:00 PM. Viewers can also watch this episode online at the Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/tiogadowns).
Viewers will also see how leading trotting trainer Trond Smedshammer used a rare opportunity as a catch driver to score a six-figure stakes win with longshot Beatgoeson Hanover in the $191,000 Muscle Hill at Vernon Downs.
Plus, get a full recap of the Historic Stakes and a look ahead to closing weekend at Tioga Downs.
