Road to the Pepsi North America Cup – Week 2

Milton, ON — The first of this season’s major stakes for 3-year-old pacers is in the books and its result made little change to Mark McKelvie’s ‘Road to the Pepsi North America Cup’ rankings.

Tall Dark Stranger and Papi Rob Hanover delivered a memorable stretch battle in last Saturday’s Meadowlands Pace, with Tall Dark Stranger battling back at the inside for the victory. The outstanding performances by the sport’s two most-talked about sophomore pacers keeps them at the top of the ‘Road to the Pepsi North America Cup’ rankings.

The local scene heats up again this weekend with two C$104,800 Ontario Sires Stakes Gold divisions taking place this Saturday at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Tattoo Artist, the top-ranked local horse on the list, had last week off, leaving the spotlight for locals Beaumond Hanover and Indictable Hanover to shine and improve their positions this week.

All three will compete on Saturday at Mohawk Park.

Casie Coleman-Herlihy’s Indictable Hanover and Ron Burke’s The Greek Freak are the two new additions to this week’s top 10. The full list, including honorable mentions, can be found here.
