Second $25,000 Breeders Crown Elimination For Three-Year-Old Trotting Colts to Six Pack

Favored Six Pack won the second $25,000 Breeders Crown elimination for three-year-colt trotters, in line to trainer/drive Ake Svanstedt. The 1-5 betting favorite took the lead two steps out of the gate and took one more step toward divisional honors. Six Pack posted fractions of 28, 57.1:25.1 and 1:53.3 over the sloppy surface to post a tight, but comfortable victory over fast closing Fiftydallarbill and Run Director, who were the only horses to make headway in the cover flow. Second Choice Crystal Fashion finished fourth from far back to qualify for the $500,000 Breeders Crown Final next week and fifth place finisher Wolfgang also advances to the final by virtue of having higher 2018 earnings than first heat's fifth place finisher, Gemologist.

World Champion Six Pack won for the 10th time in 13 seasonal starts. He has earned over $970,000 this year and nearly $1,170,000 in his career. A son of Muscle Mass from the Cantab Hall mare Pleasing Lady, Six Pack was bred by the Brittany Farms of Kentucky and is owned Ake Svanstedt Inc., of New Jersey The Little E Llc of New York, New York, Stall Kalmar of Sweden and Lars Berg of Delaware.

Earlier, favored Tactical Landing with Brian Sears in the sulky kicked off Saturday night Breeders Crown elimination action winning the first$25,000 Crown elimination for three-year-old trotting colts in 1:52 over Met’s Hall.. Sears moved from well back at the 3/8, battling leader Met’s Hall before pulling away at the top of the stretch to win by five lengths. Met’s Hall finished second, with Jula Downtown third and Evaluate fourth. Those four all advance to the $500,000 Breeders Crown Final next Saturday. 

The $500,000 Breeeders Crown Final for three-year-old trotting colts will be one of twelve Crowns to be awarded on Saturday, October 28 at Mohegan Downs at Pocono. Special first race post time is 5:30 PM Eastern.
