It was a ‘non-Bettor’s Wish’ Saturday night (Aug. 24) during Yonkers Raceway’s eliminations for the 64th Messenger Stakes. Bettor’s Wish (Dexter Dunn), the lone $30,000 supplemental entrant into the second jewel of the Pacing Triple Crown, summarily disposed of his five rivals in a non-wagering elimination.

The field is set for next Saturday’s (Aug. 31) C$600,000 Maple Leaf Trot after a pair of eliminations were contested Saturday evening (Aug. 24) at Woodbine Mohawk Park. A group of 13 older trotters, including five mares, competed in a pair of C$40,000 eliminations. The top five finishers from each punched their ticket to next Saturday’s rich final. The winners were Guardian Angel As and Crystal Fashion.
Ocean Rock paced to a new world record clocking of 1:51.1 in the first of three $40,000 Ohio Sires Stakes (OSS) contests at Northfield Park. The son of Rockin Amadeus established the new mark for 2-year-old gelding pacers on a half-mile track.
