One prominent trotter missing from action in this weekend's big races for 3-year-old trotting colts is Possess The Will, the 2011 Dan Patch 2-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year. Trainer Jim Campbell hopes to qualify the Donato Hanover colt next week at the Meadowlands.
"He got caught with some sickness and it cost him three weeks," Campbell said. "I trained him last week at the Meadowlands and he was good, so hopefully he'll be qualifying and we'll go from there."
Campbell will be sending out another 3-year-old trotting colt, Stormin Normand, in an elimination for the Earl Beal Jr. Memorial on Friday night at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. He has just one start thus far this year but is staked to all of the major events, said Campbell. "I'm very happy with him so far," said the trainer.--harnessracing.com
