The card at Mohawk kicked off with the second leg of the Millard Farms Series for two-year-old colts and gelding trotters. Warrawee Yang, with Bob McClure in tow, made his move in the final turn to win by three-quarters of a length in 1:57.4 for trainer Mark Etsell. The Trixton-Endless Flirt colt has a third and victory in two starts with earnings tallying $11,920 after tonight’s win. He is owned by Etsell, Robert Newton, Peter Porter and Denise Turner.

Southwind Coors and Michael Saftic followed up in second for trainer John Bax with Ghostly Casper (Sylvain Filion) grabbing third for trainer Benoit Baillargeon.

The second $20,000 division of the Millard Farms Series was won wire-to-wire by Lukes Bar and Todd McCarthy for David Menary in 1:55.4. The Bar Hopping-Lukes Sophie gelding is owned by Menary Racing Inc. and Anthony Timmins.

The next division of the Dream Maker was highlighted by two Stay Hungry colts, both trained by Tony Alagna, claiming first and second.
