In the Zweig Memorial for 3-year old colt and gelding trotters, Broad Bahn rebounded off of his loss in the Colonial to take home a division of the Zweig in 1:55.3. Harness racing driver George Brennan gained control of the field and cut through fractions of 27.3, 58, and 1:26.1 before going away from the field with ease to win for the fifth time in ten seasonal starts.

The 3-year old son of Broadway Hall - Madonarail added the Zweig Memorial to his growing collection of triumphs for trainer Noel Daley, and became the first trotter in twenty five years to win the Hambletonian and Zweig in the same season.

"He was good tonight, we were lucky to get to the half in 58 tonight and he was ok. He wasn't Hambletonian good, but we got lucky with a good spot and he got the job done tonight" said winning driver George Brennan in the winner's circle following the victory.

In the other division for 3-year old colt trotters, Charlie De Vie and David Miller made a quarter pole move the winning one and never looked back en route to a 1:53.2 triumph over Bambino Hall. The 3-year old son of Yankee Glide - Knickers Hanover made it his second consecutive victory and seventh of the year in eleven starts for trainer Chris Ryder.

In the Zweig Memorial Trot for the ladies, Beatgoesonhanover used a pocket trip to guide her to victory past the heavy favored Jezzy in 1:55.3. It was the fifth win in nine seasonal starts for the 3-year old daughter of Andover Hall - Beat The Wheel for driver David Miller, and trainer Richard "Nifty" Norman.

In the second division of the Zweig Memorial for 3-year old trotting fillies, Pantholops followed the favorite Some Girls around the track through fractions of 28.3, 59.1, and 1:28.1 before gearing up for the stretch drive. Down the stretch Pantholops was urged on by driver Andy Miller before nipping Some Girls at the wire in 1:56.4. Jonas Czernyson trains the 3-year old daughter of Andover Hall - Klipspringer, who posted victory for the second time in ten career starts.
