IL MAGO -

Trotter left from post 7 and was used hard three wide to the lead in :28 2/5, set the pace under some pressure and weakened in the stretch; in the 7 mile and a quarter trot races, one 3/5 shot went wire to wire, so this did not appear to be an easy trip

FIERY LUSTRE N -

Had post 8, followed cover on the final turn, angled wide for the drive and finished well
