Smedshammer takes byes for Crown Mare Trot

August 20, 2008

« Return to News
An even dozen of North America’s top trotting mares forced a single elimination race to be contested Friday to reach a field of 10 for the $250,000 Breeders Crown Mare Trot final, one of four open events scheduled for Saturday, August 30, at Mohawk Racetrack in Campbellville, Ont.

Trainer Trond Smedshammer opted for byes for his two entrants, Armbro Flight winner Falls For You and Classic Oaks winner Godiva Hall, leaving a field of 10 to race for the eight remaining spots on the gate.

The elimination field includes 2006 sophomore Crown titlist Susie’s Magic, Armbro Flight elimination winner Up Front Hotsey, and Vulcanize, a winner of more than $600,000 last year for trainer Bob McIntosh, who is still seeking a return to the winners circle in 2008 after just five starts.

The elimination field is listed below.
