The featured events on the Hambletonian Trail the week were two divisions of the $59,206 Reynolds filly trot and one division of the $62,406 Reynolds colt trot, all of which were held at the Meadowlands on Saturday, July 11. 

Model Behavior coasted around the mile oval as the 3-5 favorite to win the premier split of the Reynolds filly trot in 1:53.2, while Magic Marker (H-Andover Hall) flew from off the pace to catch pacesetter Rules Of The Road (H-Muscle Hill) and win the second division in 1:52.2 at odds of 4-1. 

With morning-line favorite Muscle Diamond (H-Muscle Hill) scratching due to sickness and post-time favorite Cruzado Dela Noche (H-Muscle Massive) breaking at the start, Suit And Tie (H-Andover Hall) dramatically commandeered the front and progressed to a 1:54.1 score over Colbert (H-Cantab Hall) and Total Darkness (H-Muscles Yankee). In a mild upset, Suit And Tie returned $12.40 to win.
