Campbellville, ON — Last year’s O’Brien Award winner, Wheeling N Dealin, is set to begin his sophomore campaign this Saturday (July 6) at Mohawk.
The son of Cantab Hall went undefeated as a rookie from nine starts last season along with $696,112 in earnings.
Trained by Dustin Jones and owned by Ecurie Synergie, Wheeling N Dealin celebrated victories in the Breeders Crown, William Wellwood Memorial, Champlain and Bridger Trotting Series last season.
The $100,000 yearling purchase also boasts a record of 1:55.
After three successful qualifiers, Wheeling N Dealin will begin from post six in race three. Regular pilot Sylvain Filion will once again be at the helm in the C$24,000 overnight conditioned event.
Earlier this week, Jones offered his thoughts on his top Hambletonian prospect.
