Fireworks News. (U.S.A.) Jack Drewer, Quotes: 12 June 1998
"The Video was
astonishing- we watch it with our mouths agape. It is one of the best
pyrotechnic acts I've ever seen.
Business (USA) "Hot To Trot Greatest Pyro Stunt!": Aug. 1998
"This act is the
most amazing, colorful, exciting use of fireworks we have ever seen, and
that was on video! We can't wait to see the real thing."
(OHIO, USA) Thomas M. Aldrich, Quotes: June 10 1997
To Mr. Steve Wolf
"I want to thank
you for arranging one of the greatest promotions in Northfield Park's
history. The "Hot To Trot" fireworks show was everything you and
Vincent Silvestro said it would be: Colourful,unique, professionally
staged,appealing to race fans, and --- thank the Lord ( and Vincent and
Hand Me Silver) ---- safe!
Northfield Park received
more positive publicity about Hot To Trot, both before and after the
event, than for any other promotion we have done in my twelve years as
general manager here. All four major television stations in the Cleveland
-- Akron area broadcast news features or highlights dedicated to "Hot
The news clips, now
numbering over 25 at last count, are still rolling in. Much of this
airplay and print media success was due to you and your colleagues'
diligent advance work, but when you are selling something as hot as
Vincent, even an ace like you has to share some credit. Incidentally, did
you teach Vincent all your spin tricks, or is he just naturally that
ebullient and articulate? The Aussie accent is a real charmer, too.
If you and the Harness
Publicists Association ever come up with anything even remotely close to
topping this crowd -- please, please call us. We will be happy to be your
inaugural track again."

This act has to be seen
to be believed as it is a world first, and proudly of Australian origin. A

Trotting Club. (N Z) J.F. Patterson, Quotes: 11Jan 1996
The track lights were
turned off at 10.20 PM and the fireworks began! It would be safe to say
that a demonstration of this kind has never been seen by most people and
it was very enthusiastically received. Vincent is a master horseman, Like
An Angel performs without fault and the fireworks are sensational. This is
truly an act that has to be seen to be believed

received from our sponsors and general public was extraordinary and it has
been many years since we have had people lining up at the gates waiting to
gain entry to the track.
May I also congratulate

with sponsors and media, the time you took with children both young and
old after the show signing autographs and talking ect."

To Mr. Steve Wolf
You are the greatest!
This is truly the greatest promotion for our sport because it is a harness
No elephants, buffaloes,
ostriches or bathing beauties. Just Vincent Silvestro and his beloved
pacer going around the track with a few (nearly 2,000) aerial bombs, sky
rockets and sparklers and not just once but two or three times to be sure
everybody got a good look. Let alone standing on the race bike with the
reigns in his mouth. WHAT A SHOW!! His rapport with fans young and old was
superb. Steve you are no longer the greatest, that title now belongs to
Vincent Silvestro and Hot To Trot!
