The harness racing action heats up on Saturday (August 16th) at Mohawk Raceway when the eliminations for the Eternal Camnation and Nassagaweya Stakes are held.
There are three divisions for both the Eternal Camnation and The Nassagaweya and picking a standout in either series is tough at this point.
In the first division of the Eternal Camnation, Happy Becky 1:53 looks a big chance from barrier two.
The daughter of Cams Card Shark is trained by Casie Coleman and is to be driven by David Miller.
In the second division of the Eternal Camnation, J K Shesalady 1:52 looks the toughest to beat although her draw of seven evens things out a bit.
The daughter of Art Major is trained by Nancy Johansson and will have the brilliant Yannick Gingras in the bike.
In the third division of the Eternal Camnation it is a very even field with perhaps A Plus 1:54.1 just getting the nod here.
The daughter of American Ideal is trained by Tony Alagna and will have Scott Zeron in the bike on Saturday night.
The most heavily represented sire in the Eternal Camnation elimanations is Art Major with four with Western Ideal next best with three.
In the first division of the Nassagaweya Stakes, two of the smarter colts so far this season square off with The Wayfaring Man and Asap Hanover locking horns.
The Wayfaring Man 1:52.2, a son of Dragon Again is trained by Nicky Comenga and will have the great Jack Moiseyev in the bike.
Asap Hanover 1:52, a son of Somebeachsomewhere is trained by Linda Toscano and will have the outstanding Ti Tetrick in the bike.
The second division of the Nassagaweya Stakes looks a bit more clear cut with the Battle Of Waterloo winner Go Daddy Go 1:54 looking the one to beat.
The son of Ponder is trained by Bob McIntosh and will driven by the legendary John Campbell.
The third division of the Nassagaweya Stakes contains the fastest horse in the three heats and likely favourite in Artspeak 1:50.4.
The son of Western Ideal is another one from the barn of Tony Alagna and will be driven by Scott Zeron.
The most heavily represented sire in the three divisions of the Nassagaweya eliminations is Somebeachsomewhere with five with the next best being Western Ideal with four.
All up we have six great races to look forward to on Saturday night.
