Anderson, IN October 23, 2020—Post positions were drawn on Friday, October 23 at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino for the Open Mare Trot, Two-Year-Old Colt Trot, Two-Year-Old Filly Pace, and Two-Year-Old Colt Pace Breeders Crown Finals. Elimination winners drew from posts one through five with the remainder of the harness racing field in an open draw. 

In the two-year-old pacing filly ranks, elimination winners Continualou and JK Alwaysbealady drew post one and two respectively. Continualou provided the biggest upset of the evening after pacing home in :26 to score at odds of 92-1 and claim the first of two $25,000 eliminations with David Miller in the bike.  

Two-Year-Old Pacing Colt Perfect Sting remained undefeated with an impressive performance in the second of two $25,000 eliminations for the Breeders Crown Juvenile pacing colts and geldings for trainer Joe Holloway. Southwind Gendry also continued his winning ways as he delivered as the heavy betting favorite in the first elimination for freshman pacing colts. Perfect Sting and Southwind Gendry will line up right next to each other in the $600,000 Final on Friday, October 30, drawing post two and three respectively.
