Tom and Linda Winebrener are the breeders.
 
The W.W. "Pete" Shaw Memorial for filly trotters produced a mild upset when driver Les Givens sent Wynnfield Sunset (Doggone Yankee-Wynnfield Molly) from the outside to the front out of the gate besting the field by 9 lengths at the wire.
 
Local horseman Pam Polk owns and bred the filly.
 
Trainer/driver Les Givens was in the bike stopping the clock in 2:01.
 
Marshalinn (CR Renegade -Imp's Flirt) was second.
 
In the trotting colts/geldings Doggone Slots (Doggone Yankee-Juanna Play Slots) went wire to wire in 2:00.3 for driver Roger Plante Jr. and trainer Thomas Morris Jr. in the Hubert Jackson Memorial.
 
Tom and Gregg Morris co-own and bred Doggone Slots.
 
Jay Boy (Tsunami-Russian Caviar) moved up to place.
 
The Charles Keller Memorial for pacing colts/geldings continued to be dominated by the Tom Cooke entry of Toms Tornado and Toms Typhoon both homebreds by the stallion Cam's Rocket.
 
Toms Typhoon's driver Roger Plante Jr. was content to sit in the pocket behind stablemate Toms Tornado until the back stretch, charging past the leader to win by 1 ¼ at the wire in 1:55.3.
Roger Hans trains both colts.
