Harness Racing Review 2021

Profile Picture: Frank Cotolo

December 31st, 2021

The TwinSpires harness racing department remains accountable to bettors and to TwinSpires account-holders. At the end of each year we open our books to a 12-month display of harness races across North America, listing all contenders suggested that won at odds of 4-1 and up (place and show prices included) in chronological order at the track at which they won.

The list includes horses from our selected features, featured stakes and horses-to-watch list (H2W). There were many more winners posted during the year that paid 7-2 and lower but for the sake of space and a braggart’s love for success, our review presents only two-digit winners.

As well, we announce the TwinSpires Harness Players’ Horse of the Year. Each season the horse earning the title comes from either our features list or the H2W list. Only one qualification is met to receive the honor—the horse must be the highest paying winner from our posts of the year.

Players’ Best Payer, 2021

The TwinSpires Harness Players’ Horse of the Year for 2021 is Astra (Betterthancheddar—Kyan Star—Bo Knows Jate.

The nine-year-old pacer recorded the biggest win mutual in a TwinSpires harness blog selection in 2021, on April 10 at Northfield Park, paying $81.80, $24.60, $11.00.
Astra was bred by Kyle Bossence, trained by Lloyd Mansfield and driven by Jason Thompson. Congratulations from the bettors at TwinSpires.
