Tuesday morning\'s draw for both the Canadian Trotting Classic (CTC) eliminations and divisions of the Nassagaweya stakes, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 16 at Mohawk, have been delayed. Prior to Tuesday\'s draw, the Ontario Racing Commission (ORC) had informed both the Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG) and Bill Elliott, trainer of CTC-eligible Here Comes Herbie and Nassagaweya-eligibles Laughing Art, Running Book and Mr. Market, that an Elliott-trained horse had produced a TCO2 violation while racing at Mohawk.

WEG has subsequently refused all entries from the Elliott stable, including the aforementioned stakes horses. An ORC hearing into the matter has been scheduled for Wednesday morning.

The draw for both the CTC elimination and the Nassagaweya divisions will be conducted Wednesday after the ORC hearing is concluded.

When the box closed, 12 horses had been entered for the Canadian Trotting Classic and 18 for the Nassagaweya. (WEG)
