Vernon, NY — The 2019 Dr. Harry M. Zweig Memorial colt trot includes several of the sophomore trotting division headliners. Among those entered are the potent Marcus Melander-trained pair of Hambletonian first heat winners Greenshoe and Green Manalishi S, along with Beal Memorial winner Marseille.
The Zweig has drawn 10 horses (nine to race with the 10th horse to have his 3-year-old payments refunded). They will compete in a single division of the stake to be raced at Vernon Downs on Saturday (Aug. 17).
The companion filly stake drew 14 including New Jersey Sire Stakes final winner Evident Beauty and 2018 Jim Doherty Memorial winner The Ice Dutchess. There will also be a consolation race to accommodate the fillies that will not draw into the main event.
The Saturday card will also include New York Sires Stakes for the 2-year-old colt pacers.
