A pair of $250,000 invites are among the highlights of Yonkers Raceway's ‘International Trot Day,' and while the field is not quite set for the Harry Harvey Invitational Trot, no more calls, we have eight winners for the inaugural Dan Rooney Invitational Pace.
 
The one-mile Dan Rooney goes as the seventh race (approximate post time 3 p.m.) during Yonkers' $3.3 million program a week from Saturday (Oct. 14). First post for the special matinee program is 1 p.m.

The eight Free-For-All pacers who've RSVP'd to race secretary Steve Starr (alphabetically) are All Bets Off, Bit Of A Legend N, Keystone Velocity, Mach it So, Missile J, Scott Rocks, Sintra and Somewhere In L A.

The inaugural Harvey Trot (eighth race, approximate post 3:30 p.m.) shall be finalized shortly, since there are a few more seats (10 in total) needed for the 1-1/4 mile event.

Again, both of these races, as well as that afternoon's finals of the New York Sire Stakes, are to be drawn Monday afternoon (Oct. 9). The million-dollar Yonkers International Trot at Empire City Casino is drawn Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 10) at a midtown Manhattan press luncheon.
