Western Fair: State Treasurer draws post one for Molson Pace


The post position draw for this year’s $150,000 Molson Pace was conducted during this evening’s pre-game show at The Raceway in London and it was three-time defending champion State Treasurer drawing the coveted rail in his quest for an historic fourth consecutive title.

The son of Real Desire may not be the intimidating presence he would have been at this time last year from post one. He has gone winless so far in three starts this season and his connections will be hoping that another trip to London will get his season back on track.

Last year’s runner-up, All Bets Off, drew the trailing post eight and is coming off a sparkling second-place finish behind Wiggle It Jiggle It in this past weekend’s Battle Of Lake Erie at Northfield Park.

Here is a look at the entire field, along with their listed drivers, in post-position order:

1 State Treasurer – Chris Christoforou

2 Bettor Rock On N – Jody Jamieson

3 Sunfire Blue Chip – Mark MacDonald

4 Evenin Of Pleasure – Sylvain Filion

5 Machtu N – Trevor Henry

6 McWicked – Randy Waples

7 P H Super Cam – James MacDonald

8 All Bets Off – Matt Kakaley

Friday night’s program also includes OSS Gold divisions for three-year-old colt pacers, a quartet of City Of London Series Finals and a pair of Alliance Series Finals. First post for the 12-race card is 7:05 p.m.
