Atlanta, Manchego, Shartin N headline Plainridge stakes Sunday

July 22, 2020

« Return to News
With the draw now complete, two short but stacked fields are set for the $250,000 Spirit of Massachusetts Trot and $100,000 Clara Barton Distaff Pace, that will be contested on Sunday (July 26) when the Grand Circuit makes a stop at Plainridge Park.
The track's signature trot will see the heavyweight battle between Atlanta and Manchego renewed for the third time this year in the Spirit of Massachusetts, with each mare having won once and the two only separated by a combined half-length in those contests. Plus these mares are responsible for trotting the two fastest miles so far this year.
Shartin N won the Clara Barton Pace in 2019 in track record time and will return to defend her title. Her stablemate Soho Burning Love A has posted back-to-back 1:48 wins already this year since landing from Australia, but Kissin In The Sand has paced the fastest mile by a mare overall this year (1:47.4).
Tracks records are in danger across the board at The Ridge on Sunday.
