It's been over a decade since harness racing driver Sylvain Filion won his first and only Breeders Crown championship. On Saturday night at Woodbine, he'll have half a dozen chances to make a return trip to the winner's circle.
Though it didn't happen in a Breeders Crown elimination, Rebeka Bayama's impressive, 1:48.4 track-record tying performance at Woodbine in an Open Mare prep on Friday night established her as a top harness racing contender for the US$600,000 Breeders Crown Mare Pace Final on Oct. 27.
Two sophomores, colt pacer Michael's Power and colt trotter Intimidate, along with mare pacer Rebeka Bayama were supplemented to their respective harness racing divisions by the noon deadline on Monday, Oct. 15.
Harness racing drivers Scott Zeron, Mario Ballargeon and Sylvain Filion all scored a double each tonight Friday the 18th of Novermber at Woodbine Raceway. The biggest win of the night was the Leader Bayama mare Rebeka Bayama scoring with Sylvain Filion driving her to victory in the $42,000 fillies and mares open.
