Apart of Saturday's ultra-impressive harness racing card at Mohawk Racetrack is the $500,000 William Wellwood Memorial final featuring North America's best two-year-old trotters. One of last weeks elimination winners was Broad Bahn, who lowered the track record and equaled the all-time Canadian record for a two-year-old trotter winning in a career best clocking of 1:55.1.

The son of Broadway Hall was a $20,000 yearling and has already earned $90,536 for his connections. Trainer Noel Daley has sent the young trotter to Mike Vanderkemp while the horse remains in Canada to prep for the rich final.

After last weeks elimination, WEG's media department caught up with Daley and the veteran conditioner offered his thoughts on his chances for the lions share of $500,000.

"He's a great going horse and he's got a good attitude and he wants to do it. We had the softer of the three eliminations and I said to Jack (Moiseyev) that if he doesn't do anything wrong he will leave by himself and get across. Anytime he's been on the front they haven't past him, he sticks in," Daley commented to WEG's media department.

Broad Bahn will leave from post four for driver Jack Moiseyev and owner Fam Alber Horse Racing.

Here is a look at the field in post position order:

1. Bruce The Brave

2. Pastor Stephen

3. Leader Of The Gang

4. Broad Bahn

5. Big Rigs

6. Gotabgoodtoblucky

7. Delcrest Julian

8. Big Strike

9. Whiskey Tax

10. Neal
