Shark Gesture, the top rated horse in harness racing’s top 10 poll, will be back at work this Friday evening in a prep race for the William R. Haughton Memorial final to be held on August 21 at the Meadowlands, after a rare defeat in the U.S. Pacing Championship on August 7.

Shark Gesture was second after Hypnotic Blue Chip made a powerful move around the last turn to win by two lengths.

“I don’t think he knew what happened,” said trainer Larry Remmen. “He’s fine. I know a lot of people are saying George [driver Brennan] got caught sleeping. I don’t know if he got caught sleeping, I don’t think so. That horse is like a locomotive and he just doesn’t start up like that. He has one gear and that’s fast. You don’t usually have to slow it down and then start him back up. The other horse had a tremendous burst and he performed well that day. I’m not taking anything away from him. Our thought is that the horse to beat for the year is Won The West. I think he’s the best horse out there, besides our horse."
