While 14 three-year-old male trotters will race in two Breeders Crown eliminations on Saturday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, the list does not include Your So Vain, who won his elimination of the $527,000 Kentucky Futurity last Sunday afternoon at The Red Mile as the betting favorite and then was fourth as second choice in the final.
"He's good, but we just decided to race in one or the other,” trainer Brad Maxwell explained to harnessracing.com Tuesday afternoon of the decision race in the Kentucky Futurity instead of the Breeders Crown, which had eliminations scheduled less than one week later. "We thought it best to race him in Lexington and then give him a week off. Six days back hurts.”
Maxwell was still in Lexington on Tuesday and said he plans on remaining in the Bluegrass another couple of days, giving Your So Vain some turn-out time. He said Your So Vain will make his next start in the Circle City on Oct. 26 at Hoosier Park.--harnessracing.com
