— The 2018 season at Goshen Historic Track opened Sunday, June 3, with five exciting and picturesque matinee races.

Although the fields were short, two-year-old trotters and pacers rounded the oval for the first time to a receptive and vocal crowd.

Jonathan Klee Racing and partners introduced two 2-year-old pacing fillies and two 2-year-old pacing colts to the spectators. Trained and driven by John McDermott, Hurrikane Lori Ann and Hurrikane Emperor won in 2:07.4 and 2:08.1, respectively.

Pictured is Hurrikane Lori Ann, driven by John McDermott, passing Hurrikane Norakane, driven by Brian Connor, in the stretch, ultimately beating her by a nose. As a matter of fact, the wrong horse and driver came to the winner’s circle to pose for the photo before the race was official. Since it was the same owner, nobody seemed to mind.

In an added treat (also pictured), Racing Under Saddle Trot, Sasha Moczulski, owner, rider and trainer of Hyway Marcus, wooed the crowd with a wire to wire win in 2:14.3. Pictured.

Matinee Racing continues at Goshen Historic Track on June 10 and 17. Grand Circuit racing on June 29, 30 and July 1 and 2. Post time at 1 p.m.
