One of the most dominant performers in recent editions of the Preferred Trot on the WEG circuit has been Slip Into Glide, and he bolstered his resume with a national season’s record-setting performance in Monday’s edition at Mohawk Racetrack.

With Mario Baillargeon at the controls, Slip Into Glide rushed to the lead from Post 6 and supplied an opening quarter clocked in :27.3 before releasing Flanagan Memory to the top. That O’Brien Award-winning performer chopped out middle splits of :56.2 and 1:24.3 before fatigue set in.

When Flanagan Memory weakened Slip Into Glide went for all the marbles, and his :27.2 closing quarter helped him to post the win by 1-1/4 lengths over Mego Moss in a sparkling time of 1:52.3. Wheeling N Dealin, another O’Brien Award winner, was third.
