Next Mission: Breeders Crown Repeat

After capturing the Kentucky Futurity in three heats at The Red Mile in Lexington, Kentucky on October 2, Manofmanymissions appears to be in top form heading into the Breeders Crown on October 29 at Woodbine Racetrack.

"I jogged the horse after he raced three heats and he jogged actually better than he did probably going into it," trainer Erv Miller told the WEG communications department while in Lexington. "Through that race the horse just really showed what kind of animal he is; he really put in a good effort."

Manofmanymissions has made eight trips to the winner’s circle from 13 tries this season while banking $768,000, but Miller says it has been a rollercoaster year for his sophomore trotter.

“[His season] has been really up and down,” said Miller. “He’s a tough horse for different racetracks to get him set for. We had a foot issue earlier in the year, but since then he’s been really coming around."

With his form peaking, the son of Yankee Glide-Armbro Vanquish will now look to capture his second $600,000 Breeders Crown after beating out Pastor Stephen by a head in 1:53.2 as a freshman last season.

"He got over the Chester track [winning the Colonial Trot] so he should be good at Woodbine," said Miller, who also noted that Manyofmanymissions will probably stand stud next year.

The $215,000 Lexington Select yearling purchase has stashed away $1,200,900 lifetime for owners Manofmanymissions Stable, Mystical Marker Farms LLC and M Biasuzzi Stable Inc.
