« Return to News
Bred by Hanover Shoe Farms, Crystal Fashion paid $6.20 to win.
Fourth Dimension (Chapter Seven-Corazon Blue Chip), with Brian Sears in the sulky, won the second elim in 1:54, a track record for freshmen colt trotters.
Met’s Hall took the early lead, though Fourth Dimension left alertly from post 7 and found a good spot third past an opening fraction of :27. Before the :57 half, Fourth Dimension took to the outside and got the lead, rushing through a 1:25.4 three-quarters.
You Know You Do went first over late but couldn’t get past Missile Hill, who split horses in the stretch. Missile Hill was third, You Know You Do was fourth and Skyway Torpedo took the fifth spot, grabbing the final berth in next week's final.
Trained by Marcus Melander for owners Courant, Inc., Fourth Dimension shook off Met’s Hall’s stubborn challenge to win by 1¼ lengths and pay $5.80. (Breeders Crown)
