Newly Turned Sexagenarian, Campbell
Expecting Big 2015
By Bill Finley
He just turned 60, a milestone he reached last
Wednesday. But it's not a number that has him worried or,
for that matter, excited. John Campbell is going about his
business the same way he always has. To him, all that
matters is getting good horses to drive.
"For a number of years I have evaluated things based on
the number of opportunities I get in the big races," he said.
"As long as I'm getting those opportunities I am going to
continue to drive."
Has age caught
up to him? It
doesn't matter what
he thinks. It matters
what trainers and
owners think, and
Campbell said he's
more than satisfied
with the response
he continues to get
from horsemen and
the number of
Now 60, John Campbell won’t have

years. That was
certainly the case
when his mounts earned $4,989,250 in 2014, his highest
total since 2010. Nuncio led the way, earning $1,458,071
and winning top races like the Matron, Yonkers Trot,
Kentucky Futurity and the Blue Grass.
But Nuncio is gone, having gone to Sweden to compete
this year.
"That sort of thing is part of racing," he said. "I knew that
could be part of the plan for the horse. It wasn't a blow. I
don't look at it that way. Being able to race him at 2 and 3
was a great experience for me. He was a great horse and
so consistent. There were also the people involved. I raced
for Jimmy Takter and hadn't raced a horse for him in a
number of years and the Melanders were very, very special
people to deal with throughout the year. I see it as a plus
that I was able to drive him for two years."
Yet, while Campbell may not pick up a horse that earns
as much $1.4 million on the year, he says he has several
horses he expects to drive this year that figure to pile up
the earnings. For that reason, he is very optimistic about
his 2015 season.
"I am hoping for more than one horse," he said. "I have
high hopes for Go Daddy Go. Muscle Diamond ended up
the year second in the Breeders Crown and I am looking for
him to mature and get stronger this year. Thinking Out
Loud is coming back. Shelliscape, from what I understand,
is coming back from an operation and everyone involved
with her thinks it will help make her better than last year. I
have JL Cruze in the Graduate and I am looking forward to
that. I have a number of horses to look forward to. You
never want to put all your eggs in one basket and rely on
one horse."
Campbell said he's encouraged by the winter he had. He
entered last night tied for third in the drivers' standings at
the Meadowlands. He says he feels good and his services
have been very much in demand. He believes it's a sign of
good things to come for the remainder of the year.
"I can still do this...let's put it that way," he said.
There aren't many things left for him to accomplish. One
feat he could possibly reach is to become the first driver to
reach $300 million in career earnings. W ith $291 million
earned so far, he's probably about two years away from
hitting the mark. He says it's too far off in the future for him
to even think about.
Ask him about when he might retire and he has no
answer for you. He says he'll take it year by year and keep
(continued on next page)

going as long as there are trainers willing to give him
decent stock. Not that he's giving much away, but about all
he'll tell you is he's pretty sure he won't be driving 10 years
from now.
Another question he can't answer is what he will do when
he does retire. Campbell says he wants to stay involved in
the sport, but worries that there won't be a role for him.
"There are limited opportunities for anybody in our game,"
he said. "There just aren't that many opportunities for guys
when they get done racing. I don't see anything coming up
that way, which is unfortunate, and not only for me but for
other people involved in the industry. W hen they want to
step back there's not a whole lot for them to do. We lose
out on the knowledge and experience that a lot of people
have, people that really know the game. I'd like to stay in
the game if the right situation came along. I love the game.
It's all I've ever known and I am still passionate about it."
In other words, John Campbell isn't going anywhere
anytime soon.
through November. W e don't want to rush her back this
One thing JK She'salady won't be doing this year is race
against the boys as Johansson said she has no plans to
take on males.
The daughter of Art Major won all 12 of her starts last
year, but Johansson said keeping her undefeated record in
tact will not be a major goal this year.
"I don't feel any pressure about the undefeated record
because I kind of look at it as this is a new chapter," she
said. "The old chapter is over. It was great to go
undefeated last year. The goal this year is for her to make
a lot of money and race well. W e like to race her off the
pace. At three that might be harder to do and get there
every week because the other fillies have matured a little
bit. There might be times this year where she comes
charging home and might have the fastest last quarter in
the race but might not have her nose first across the wire.
I'm not concerned about winning every race we enter. If
she does get beat, as long as she races well, we won't
hang our heads.

JK She'salady Training "Awesome"
The 2014 Horse of the Year JK She'salady is starting to
get serious in her training as she prepares for her
3-year-old season and, according to trainer Nancy
Johansson, could not be doing better.
"She trained in two minutes (yesterday morning),"
Johansson said. "It was the
first time we put her in a race
bike for the year and she
trained absolutely beautifully.
She look absolutely

but she gets into that last
turn and she knows to go.
She puts her head down and motors home."
Johansson said she's not going to be in any hurry to
bring JK She'salady back to the races, adding that her first
major goal is the June 20 Fan Hanover at Mohawk.
"W e will probably qualify around May 1, give or take a
week," she said. "She went in two minutes so I don't know
how much longer we can really stall her before we qualify
her. But we've said we're going to give her the time that we
thought she needed. She had a long season last year. She
qualified the second week in June and raced all the way

More Problems for Corey Johnson
By withdrawing his appeal, trainer Corey Johnson has
settled his case with the New Jersey Racing Commission
and accepted a 15-day suspension and a $500 fine for
having a positive for the drug O-Desmethyl Pyrilamine
following a March 29, 2014 race at the Meadowlands. The
horse who tested positive was Hldontghttoyurdrms.
Because Johnson is currently under suspension in
Ontario for a TCO-2 overage, the New Jersey suspension
will not start until Jan. 1, 2016. Johnson has also been
banned by the Meadowlands after two horses he started in
the Breeders Crown, including winner Traceur Hanover,
allegedly tested positive for a high cobalt level.
The drug is listed as a Class 3 substance and is an
antihistamine used in human and equine medicine.
Radar Contact Doubles Up at The Meadowlands
By Darin Zoccali
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (Friday, April 10, 2015) Radar Contact entered the $27,500 Mares Open Handicap
Friday Night at The Meadowlands on quite a roll. In fact,
she had not been worse than second in her last six starts.
That would not change as the seven year old daughter of
Dontgetinmyway took the field wire to wire score back to
back wins at the top level for the mare pacers in 1:50.3 as
the even money favorite.
John Campbell wasted no time with his mare,
establishing the early lead instantaneously off the gate.
She would soar through fractions of 27.1, 55.4 and 1:24
with no pressure. Just like the week before,
Inittowinafortune sat the pocket throughout behind the
favorite. Meanwhile, Rocklamation making her first start of
the season, was relegating to the trailing position from her
outside post. That is where she remained throughout the
mile, unable to launch a rally upon her return. Through the
stretch, Radar Contact was able to keep Inittowinafortune
at bay, powering home in a 26.3 final quarter to win
impressively. Cherry Bliss, making her Meadowlands
debut maintained her position flashing good pace to be
Radar Contact is trained by Noel Daley for Charles
Stillings and Dean Ehrgott.
The win was the fourth on the season for Radar Contact,
bringing her earnings this season to $78,200.
The $27,500 Open Handicap Trot featured Melady’s
Monet who had won three consecutive editions of the
top-level trot, but six year old gelding did not fire tonight,
finishing a distanced last. Tonight, W ind Of The North
brought his A-game, following a wire to wire performance at
Dover. The five year old gelding did the same thing at The
Meadowlands tonight, trotting through fractions of 27.2, 57
and 1:25.1. On the far turn, he received a challenge from
the other Dover invader, Tough Mac, and the pair sprinted
away from the field, opening up several lengths on Rolls
Blue Chip who had been sitting the pocket. At the
mid-point of the stretch, W ind Of The North put away
Tough Mac, but was faced with a monstrous rally by
Lindy’s Tru Grit who came from well-back and sprinted a
final quarter in 26.3, but was simply left with a bit too much
to do and would finish second to W ind Of The North.
Master of Law rallied to be third.
The winner was driven by Dave Miller for Daryl Bier who
trains and co-owns the gelding with Joann Dobeck. Wind
Of The North completed the mile in 1:53.1
Tonight’s GSY Amateur trotting event went to Robert
Hechkoff and Bambino Hall in 1:57.3. Hannah Miller put
forth another good effort in the series finishing second with
Casanova Lindy.
Both Jackpot Super Hi-5 wagers continued their
carryovers, with the fifth race carryover growing to $76,092
and the last race carryover reaching $41,497. Both
carryovers will roll into the Saturday program which
features a 13-race card that begins at 7:15 P.M.
Matchmaker Round 4 to Venus Delight,
By Frank Drucker
Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway
YONKERS, NY (Friday, April 10, 2015) - Yonkers
Raceway Friday night hosted the fourth round of the Blue
Chip Matchmaker of Open Pacing Mares. As was the case
in the third leg, a pair of small-but-select fields of five were
bifurcated into $40,000 divisions.
Pole-sitting favorite Venus Delight (Jason Bartlett, $4.80),
finished what she started in the first event, holding off a
second-up Camille (George Brennan) in a season’s-best
1:53.2. Monkey on My W heel (Brian Sears) was third.
(continued on next page)
• 4/11/15 PAGE 4 of 8
“Venus” seated all four of his foes early, forcing
Yagonnakissmeornot (Dan Dube) into a two-hole. After
cheapy opening intervals of :27.4 and :57.1, onkey On My
Wheel took out of third. That one threw down the gauntlet
in and out of a 1:25.3 three-quarters, while
“Yagonnakissme” was losing ground in behind.
Venue Delight maintained a short, half-length advantage
entering the lane, then whipped a charging Camille by that
same margin. Yagonnakissmeornot and a non-factor
Coffee Addict (Matt Kakaley) completed the order.
For Venus Delight, a 5-year-old daughter of Bettor’s
Delight owned by Bamond Racing and trained by Jeffrey
Bamond Jr., it was her second win in four seasonal starts
(2-for-3 in series). The exacta paid $22.20, with the triple
not offered to the abbreviated assemblage.
The second Matchmaker event was more of the same for
series leader, odds-on choice Carolsideal (Dube, $2.80).
The only perfect participant made it four wins in series
succession, defeating Krispy Apple (Tim Tetrick) by a
half-length in 1:53.2…same time as the opening division.
Unhurried early from post position No. 2, “Carol” watched
both Charisma Hanover (Brennan) and Fancy Desire
(Kakaley) slug it out approaching a :27.1 opening
quarter-mile. Carolsideal then moved from third, securing
the lead in Turn 2 and getting a 56-second intermission.
Fancy Desire made her second move going toward the
1:24.4 three-quarters, with Krispy Apple in behind.
However, Carolsideal widened to 3½ lengths turning for
home, holding sway to keep the roll going. Strings (Eric
Carlson) was a best-of-the-rest third, with Fancy Desire and
Charisma Hanover completing the order.
For Carolsideal a 6-year-old daughter of Western Ideal
trained by Rene Allard for co-owners himself (as Allard
Racing), Yves Sarazin and Kapildeo Singh, she’s now 9 for
10 this season. The exacta paid $8.20, with again

The View of Jeff Gural; Outside the Harness
Racing Bubble
Earlier this year I popped over to the Paulick Report for
my daily dose of Thoroughbred racing news and saw a
headline screaming at me that was all too familiar:
"You're Out! Meadowlands Bans Owner After High Cobalt
Having previously read the story on harness websites
and chat boards, I navigated down
to the comments section,
wondering what the high traffic
Paulick Report Thoroughbred
crowd had to say about this affair.
I expected a smattering of "go get
'em Jeff" comments mixed in with
those criticisms we see of him in
harness racing - dictator, killer of
due process, that he won't get
along with people, etc.
"Bravo, Jeff Gural", wrote
Charles Smith.
"If only the flat racing would

supporters in the
thoroughbred industry "Now that's taking care of your
customers", said Rick.
"I'd like to see all racing have the intestinal fortitude to do
the same!" wrote Sandi.
There were many more, and they were all the same. If I
didn't know better, I'd think Jeff Gural had a lot of relatives
in Thoroughbred racing.
Just this week, Dave Briggs had a very extensive
interview with Gural on the website
Thoroughbred RacingCommentary It was eye-opening,
and interesting (Jeff is clearly never boring) and it too
seemed well-received on social media and elsewhere with
that audience. That got me thinking: W hat truly is the view
of Jeff from the people who we don't often hear from? W hat
do people outside harness racing feel about him, and his
Off I went to find out.
"Personally, I find Jeff's commitment to integrity highly
inspirational and I applaud him for the practices he has
instituted to ensure a level playing field for his horsemen
and his customers," Jockey Club President and CEO Jim
Gagliano wrote when contacted by email. "It is also
reassuring to know that his business has improved as a
(continued on next page)

result of the integrity measures he has put in place."
Barry Irwin, founder and CEO of Team Valor International
and someone known for his outspokenness on integrity,
seemed to echo, at least some of Jim's view.
"He is a singularly impressive individual, because he has
taken a no-nonsense approach to operating a racetrack in
a sport renowned for being on the cutting edge when it
comes to the illegal use of performance enhancing drugs.
Whereas other racetracks and racing jurisdictions seem to
have been stymied by local laws or a lack of will to change
the contaminated environment, Jeff has used his noggin to
foil the cheaters by staying one step ahead of them and
denying them the opportunity to cheat at his racetrack. If
racing of all breeds took a page or two from Jeff's playbook,
we would all be better off."
W ondering what Thoroughbred track operators thought
about Jeff's positions, I turned to Charles Hayward.
Hayward was CEO of the New York Racing Association,
which operates Aqueduct, Belmont and Saratoga
Racetracks, and has had to navigate similar minefields for
"As a former track operator, I think that Jeff Gural is doing
more for racing than all of the regulators combined. Gural is
the only track operator aggressively pursuing out of
competition testing which is the only way to catch the
cheaters. He deserves our full support."
Interestingly enough, the manner in which I received his
comments may say as much or more about Hayward's view
than his words themselves. W e played an extended game
of email tag, as he was busy all day in meetings. W hen I
informed him via email I was going ahead without his
comments, and thanked him for taking my original email,
he relayed his thoughts while out for a business dinner from
his cell phone. It appeared he was going out of his way to
share his respect for Jeff's efforts.
Those views on Jeff Gural - the admiration for taking a
stand - are not uncommon, even in harness racing. W here
Jeff seems to get in trouble in this sport is with some
horsemen and their representatives, so I looked to Steve
Zorn. Steve is a lawyer, the Racing Manager of Castle
Village Farm and, for the past 12 years, a member of the
Board of Directors of the New York Thoroughbred
Horsemen's Association.
"In a perfect world, one would have uniform enforcement,
in a timely manner, by the regulators. But that doesn't
happen. W hen a trainer fights a charge, the average time to
a final decision, in New York at least, is between 2-3 years.
By the time a suspension is confirmed, it has no deterrent
effect," Steve wrote to me via email.
"So the fallback position is for the track owner to act. The
court cases are clear that track ownership has the ability to
do this, subject only to providing due process, i.e., an
opportunity for the trainer to confront the accuser and have
his/her say. Why don't more tracks follow this model? Fear
of being sued? Fear of small fields?" he added.
Steve's comments were certainly not effusive, but his
tone resonated with me. I sensed there was a frustration a similar frustration Jeff Gural talks about - even from a
man in his position.
As I moved ahead in my quest, I shifted to some in the
media to see if I could get a birds-eye view from the
Thoroughbred perspective. For that, I turned to a couple of
veterans for their take.
Tom LaMarra has worked for many years in
Thoroughbred racing at the Blood-Horse magazine, and he
shared his broad view. He believes, overall, Jeff is looked
at as a positive force for racing, and his willingness to
speak his mind appears to be an asset with many.
"It seems Jeff is viewed in a positive light because the
issues he continues to hammer upon-integrity, equine
welfare, keeping horses racing after their 3-year-old
seasons, a need for more marketing and promotion-are all
very important to Thoroughbred racing as well. Jeff, and his
viewpoints, would probably be better known-and in turn
perhaps more controversial-in Thoroughbred racing if there
was a more productive working relationship between the
Thoroughbred industry and the Standardbred industry," he
wrote via email.
Tom continued: "He appears to have a good relationship
with the Thoroughbred horsemen in New Jersey as far as
being willing to allow for Thoroughbred meets at
Meadowlands, and I believe Thoroughbred interests in the
state realize the value of Meadowlands and its off-track
wagering facility as a major outlet for wagering on
Thoroughbred races. Speaking as a journalist, I will say the
guy returns phone calls and emails and is refreshing in that
he speaks his mind about things in which he believes.
That's becoming more rare."

Ray Paulick, owner and operator of the Paulick Report,
has been around the block one or a thousand times. He
shared a slightly different view that addressed the fact that
people use confirmation bias in life, and in racing it's the
same. He also believes that too few people even know
about Gural to form an opinion.
"Thoroughbred people who do know what he has tried to
do at Meadowlands likely fall into one of two camps: those
who support stricter medication rules and tougher
enforcement admire him; those who are satisfied with the
status quo probably think he's misguided, naive or a bully."
Perhaps Ray's point helps explain the vitriol in some
harness camps towards Jeff Gural. Once you get down to
making sausage and the way things are begin to become
the way things were, the whole paradigm changes.
Ronald Reagan once said: "The status quo, you know,
that's Latin for 'the mess we're in'." In almost all of the
above views, it seems there's a realization that what has
been done in the past is not working; that yes, the status
quo is quite the mess.
To many in this sport, and in Thoroughbred racing, I feel
Gural represents an infantryman. He's the one willing to get
his hands dirty to lead an assault against that status quo.
With few in charge bringing in real change, or taking the
helm, when someone finally stands up and leads especially when that person makes progress - it is
inevitable he or she will have staunch advocates. I think
that's true whether the sport is harness racing, or
Thoroughbred racing, because the two sports might feel
different, but the issues are the same.
Race 7, N/W $15,000 L5 Pace
This race to begin tonight’s late Pick 4 is a total puzzle and
I think it all centers around Campbell. He’s driven the
raging W INDSONG GORGEOUS in all of his last three
consecutive wins but interestingly wasn’t listed tonight as
the horse makes his start as a Virgil Morgan reclaim. JC
was listed on both DAPPER DUDE who’s dropping out of
the Levy series and ONTARIO SUCCESS; he opted for the
latter and perhaps that’s telling. Back to W indsong, Brett
Miller was listed here and on BLATANTLY BEST and in a
tough call went to the Remmen trainee who nearly won the
Open here back in March. So what we’re left with is
Ginsburg inheriting the drive on W INDSONG GORGEOUS
as a suspect morning line favorite. Onto others, ODDS ON
EQUULEUES qualified to run away from Dovuto Hanover
by 7 lengths when he closed in :26:2; this is a pretty low
level for him. MISTER VIRGIN raced big last week but this
field is considerably tougher; at least lands the rail to
Race 8, G-Note Final Pace
ROCK STAR had been racing deceptively well of late and
paid off last week at 5/1 when he was finally given the
chance the to flaunt his form in a clean trip and McCarthy
seems to fit him well; any good cover flow and his repeat
chances go way up. NF DRUM ROLL has looked like a
new horse since going to trainer Tara Hynes; picks up a
new driver tonight in Zeron. JJ SHARK was able to get the
job done last week at 3/5 but the move to the outside will
complicate things a lot; on the other hand Dave Miller does
show confidence by opting here over #8. DULL ROAR has
some class to him and that was a useful return to the
Meadowlands last week; should offer another double digit
price. MAMBO ITALIANO was claimed last out for
McDermott and put up a noticeably fast mile three back;
the Chiodo entry of MIGHTY YOUNG JOE and LETS
FOAL AROUND can land a minor share.
Race 9, Claiming $10,000 Pace
CAJON HOT SHOT enters here from Freehold and some
of those recent rivals on view such as Code W ord are
relatively decent; Andy Miller opts here too over STORMIN
RUSTLER. I’d keep an eye on VISA VIPER who shows a
barn change from Altman to Magie; Zeron landed here and
vast improvement could be coming. FOX VALLEY
TYRESE has been close a number of times but hasn’t
been able to deliver; this is about as soft as a group he’s
faced. GETONTHEWAY appreciated the move to the big
track last week when he nailed the place spot as a big
longshot; will take much more action this time around.
Race 10, G-Note Consolation Pace
SASSY HANOVER was caught three wide at the half mile
marker last week and probably shouldn’t have been
favored in that ultra-competitive field anyway. This one
was a strong 1:51:2 winner two back and overall seems to
lay over these even from PP 10; goes right down the road.
MAGNUS DEO clearly outraced expectations last week
with a tough trip and now lands the rail; he should warrant a
long look now. GALLANT SEELSTER had been moving in
the right direction with that third place finish at Pocono a
couple back but then wasn’t fast enough to close with the
resurgent NF Drum Roll last week; he’s one of the fringe
players in here. SPORTS SINNER looked like a sneaky
play last week but he was empty off acceptable cover;
maybe he’ll be stronger now in his second start over the
track. Stone closer RELENTLESS DREAMER may be able
to pick up some pieces if the early pace is fast.
