The $214,000 Credit Winner (open) and $202,000 Muscle Hill (mares) trotting stakes offer a look at the finest trotting talent on the continent in Grand Circuit action on Friday, September 6 at Vernon Downs.
 
The Credit Winner offers an All-Star field of eight boasting career earnings of nearly $13 million. 
 
The talented group includes Arch Madness (a win would put him over the $4 million mark), 2012 Hambletonian winner Market Share, 2012 Breeders Crown 3YO winner Intimidate, 2012 Kentucky Futurity champ My MVP, International winner Wishing Stone, Canadian superstar Mister Herbie, the season's top earner in the division in Sevruga and Guccio, who goes over the $1 million mark with a win.
 
Intimidate is making his first start against the top of the crop after a quiet summer in Quebec. Trainer Luc Blais kept his prize pupil on the junior circuit before unleashing him at the WEG tracks in August with a pair of impressive wins in the 1:52 range. The Vernon Downs configuration mirrors that of Mohawk Racetrack and should suit Intimidate's closing style. Ron Pierce will drive the altered son of Justice Hall for Blais and his partner Judith Farrow in Friday's eleventh race.
 
The fairer sex will perform a race earlier with ten mares facing the gate including the division leader Maven. The competition includes all the players, with Beatgoeson Hanover fresh off her world record 1:51.4 effort at Pocono, Real Babe finished right on the aforementioned mare's heels last week and last year's top filly Check Me Out, who flashed some of her speed in a 1:55.3 win at Saratoga in her last.
 
Maven has won six of eight this season and is the leading money winner in the group. She has rebounded from a mid-summer swoon with a sharp 1:53.3 win in the Miss Versatility at Tioga in her last, adding Lasix. The winner of over $1 million in her career, Maven starts from post six for regular driver Yannick Gingras. Jonas Czernyson has conditioned the daughter of Glidemaster throughout her career for owner W J Donovan of Ft Lauderdale.
 
Horses for both races must report to the Retention Barn by noon on Friday.
