LONDON...With just three cards of harness racing remaining in the calendar year, The Raceway's trainers title could come down to the wire.

O'Brien Award finalist Richard Moreau has been a dominant conditioner at The Raceway for many years is currently sitting third, just two wins back of Shepherd.

Another O'Brien Award finalist, Kyle Bossence, is stalking in fourth with 31 wins this season. The Arthur, Ont resident has been named a finalist for the Rising Star Award.
