Workin Ona Mystery leads 26 in Adios

July 16, 2019

« Return to News

A field of 26 top 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers, the largest and deepest in many years, will contest the 53rd edition of the $475,000 Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids at The Meadows.


Three $25,000 eliminations are set for Saturday, July 20, first post 1:05 PM, while the $400,000 final goes the following Saturday, when the program begins at 11:35 AM. The final,  race 15 on the 16-race card, anchors a blockbuster program that includes five other Grand Circuit stakes as well as a $50,000 Invitational Pace.


Among the headliners in the Adios field are Working Ona Mystery, who finished third in the finals of both the Crawford Farms Meadowlands Pace and the North America Cup, beaten by a combined margin of less than 2 lengths; Brassy Hanover, who overcame 45-1 odds to earn second in the $600,000 Hempt Final, and Captain Victorious, third-place finisher in the Hempt final despite a brutal trip from post 8.


Tony Alagna leads all trainers with five Adios entrants while Ron Burke and Ray Schnittker will be represented by three apiece. Other trainers with multiple contenders are Brett Pelling and Norm Parker, each with two.


The first three finishers in each elimination return --and get to choose their post positions -- for the final. The other post positions will be determined by random draw.
