Once again shamelessly plagiarizing a term from our Thoroughbred brethren, "Win and You're In."
Yonkers Raceway has announced that the winner of the 63nd Yonkers Trot shall automatically receive a Yonkers International Trot invitation.
The $500,000 Yonkers Trot goes Saturday night, Sept. 2, with eliminations this Saturday, while the million-dollar, 1-1/4 mile Yonkers International Trot is set for Saturday afternoon, Oct. 14.
This is the third incarnation of International since its return after a 20-year hiatus.
"We are compiling a list of world-class trotters for our International," race secretary Steve Starr said. "Last season's winner, Resolve, is coming back to defend his title and it's shaping up as a glorious race."
More information about the 2017 Yonkers International Trot shall be announced shortly. (Yonkers)
