Each December the TwinSpires harness-racing department studies the 12-month archives of suggested contenders posted in the exclusive weekly harness blog. From that review, we categorize all of the winners paying 4-1 and up and list them in the order of win prices, high to low including place and show prices and the track at which they won. We add to the list our winners of featured stakes winner through the 52 weeks.

There were many more winners posted during the year that paid 7-2 and lower, of course, but for the sake of space and a braggart’s love for success, we present only two-digit winners. Anyone wishing to see the entire list should make a request on Twitter @FrankCotolo. I will email the entire cast of winners to anyone requesting it.

Our usual recap is presented below the annual review.

First and foremost, we announce the TwinSpires Harness Players’ Horse of the Year. Each year the horse earning the title comes from either our features list or the horses-to-watch list (H2W) and is the highest paying winner from all our posts of the year. This year was exceptional, with two horses paying over $100 and one returning a price in the high 90s.

Players’ Best Payer

The TwinSpires Harness Players’ Horse of the Year for 2018 is Queenace Blue Chip.

She recorded the biggest win mutual for a TwinSpires harness blog selection in 2019, on March 4 at Yonkers, Queenace Blue Chip won and paid $123.00.

Queenace Blue Chip was a three-year-old daughter of Art Major, out of the Cam.s Card Shark mare Blackjack Princes.
