Three-year-old colt and gelding trotters were in action in the Canadian Breeders Championship eliminations on Satureday night at Mohawk. In the opening split, heavily favored Text Me, who is Hambletonian eligible, got plenty of respect on the front end and, after waltzing through three panels in 1:26, the son of Kadabra Dial Nile was able to hold on for a solid 1:54.3 tally, which equaled his lifetime mark.
Text Me used a :28.1 final frame to fend off a closing Dontgetinhisway with Windsong Geant finishing a close third. Sent off as the prohibitive choice, the winner returned $3.70 for the victory.
It was the fifth win in eight tries this season for the Bob McIntosh student who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of just over $550,000 for McIntosh along with the CSX Stables of Ohio and Dave Boyle of Ontario.
The second elimination produced an upset win as Hidden Message, who is not Hambo eligible, took advantage of a third-quarter speed duel between favorites Windsun Galaxie and Boogie Woogie by sweeping past late to win for Phil Hudon in 1:54.3.
The gelded son of Kadabra tracked the cover of Windsun Galaxie before vaulting past him to notch his fifth win of the campaign in 11 starts for trainer Emma Frieze. Boogie Woogie was able to hold the place spot with Go Go Red Marty finishing third and Windsun Galaxie fading to fourth.

Hidden Message returned 19.20 for the win. He also bumped his seasonal earnings to over the $100,000 mark for owner Fintec Stables of Hamilton, Ontario.
The Canadian Breeders Championship finals will go postward as part of the Maple Leaf Trot undercard next Saturday night at Mohawk. (WEG)
