The race for divisional honors could become clearer, or further muddled, depending on the outcome of Saturday’s $531,250 Breeders Crown for 3-year-old male pacers at the Meadowlands.
No fewer than eight horses in the 3-year-old male pacing division can claim at least one major open stakes triumph this season.
The Pacing Triple Crown races – the Cane Pace, Little Brown Jug and Messenger – were won by Lyonssomewhere, Limelight Beach and All Bets Off, respectively.
Among the richest remaining open stakes for 3-year-old male pacers, the North America Cup went to JK Endofanera, the Meadowlands Pace to He’s Watching, the Max C. Hempt Memorial and Delvin Miller Adios to McWicked, the Monument Circle to Always B Miki, and the Matron to Big Boy Dreams.
Always B Miki, JK Endofanera, Limelight Beach and McWicked are among the 10 horses in Saturday’s Breeders Crown. So is Luck Be Withyou, who won last season’s Breeders Crown for 2-year-olds, as well as Little Brown Jug runner-up Let’s Drink On It.
