Monticello, NY - To find any 14-year horses racing these days is rare in harness racing, but on Tuesday afternoon at Monticello Raeway in the 4th race there were three 14 year olds in the same race. At the finish line was Elias Joy first, the came, My Cool Breeze to be second and third was Crypto Man. All of them 14 years old.

The winner Elias Joy notched his 12 win of the season for trainer Robert Lounsbury as he trotted to a 4 length victory in 2:00.4 and returned $2.60 to win with Hunter Oaks in the bike. The son of Floritas Hero is not showing any signs of slowing down this year, with 34 starts under his belt and over $27,000 in seasonal earnings. Elias Joy is in 4th place with the most wins at Monticello Raceway this year.

The three aged trotting warriors have combined lifetime stats of 1008 starts, 125 wins and over $846,000 in earnings.

Crypto Man was driven by Bruce Aldrich Jr. and is trained and owned by David Dziengiel, a son of Malabar Man is out of the top producer Nervey's Taurus. My Cool Breeze is trained by Dawn DeVaux and is owned by her daughter Nicole and was driven by Mike Merton.

In the next race Mike Merton went down on the track when Volare TZ made a nasty break going into the first turn and was out of control, Merton sustained a broken collar bone.
