Yonkers: International Trot field taking shape

Kimberly Rinker/DRF Harness
2014 Elitlopp winner Timoko is now a confirmed starter for the International.

It wouldn’t be an International Trot without international trotters, now would it?

Accordingly, Yonkers Raceway is pleased to announce seven more confirmed participants for the million-dollar event, set for Saturday afternoon, Oct. 10.

The list--alphabetically--includes:

BBS Sugarlight (Norway)

Oasis Bi (Italy)

On Track Piraten (Sweden)

Papagayo E (Norway)

Rod Stewart (Italy)

Seabiscuit (Finland)

Timoko (France).

All are scheduled to leave for New York Wednesday, Sept. 30th

Other invitees are to be determined based on this weekend’s racing, including, but not limited to, Mohawk’s Maple Leaf Trot.

The International (back after two decades) is part of a scheduled matinee card, with proposed first post (pending approval of the NYS Gaming Commission) at 2 PM and the race itself going at approximately 3:20 PM.
