swept the two divisions of the CKG Billings Amateur Trot at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Sunday afternoon.
Yarock, along with partners Joel Golub and David Glasser, claimed trotter CSI What's My Name () a couple weeks back at Saratoga. As an eight-year-old last year, CSI What's My Name finished in a tie for Trotter of the Year at the Spa despite racing almost solely in claimers.
Yarock piloted the gutsy trotter to a first-over victory in the Billings Trot on Sunday and stopped the timer in 1:58.1 as they bested front-running Mr Invincible and reinsman Tony Ciuffetelli. Coincidentally, it was Ciuffetelli who owned and trained CSI What's My Name in his award winning 2013 campaign.
Yarock's other victory came behind his Nowerland Nathan () as they went wire-to-wire at odds of 10-1 in the $5,000 CKG Billings Amateur Driving Series. Nowerland Nathan's third victory of the year came in 2:00.2. Jr. trains both CSI What's My Name and Nowerland Nathan for Yarock who enjoyed a driving double in the Billings Series.
