The rich EBC trotting finals were part of a stakes-laden Memorial Day card at Vernon Downs in upstate New York.
Six Pack, by Muscle Mass-Pleasing Lady, won the $225,000 final of last year’s New York Sire Stakes 2-Year-Old Colt Trot at Yonkers and is now a perfect three for three on the new season. He is the year’s co-fastest sophomore colt trotter and also the richest thus far.
He was purchased for a modest $30,000 at the 2016 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale by his trainer, Ake Svanstedt, and has now earned more than $330,000. He is owned by the Svanstedt Stable, Jeff Gural’s Little E LLC, Stall Kalmar FF and Lars Berg.
