Yankees Beast, a five-year-old trotting gelding, gave the Kakaley/Alexander duo a double when he took the $13,500 fifth race (1:56.4), and D P Rocket, a five-year-old trotting mare, completed their hat trick when she bagged the $36,000 ninth race (1:56.1).

Three-year-old pacing filly Thebeachiscalling (1:53.4), trained by Chris Ryder, was Kakaley's fifth winner in the $22,000 10th race, and Kakaley polished off the six-bagger by steering seven-year-old gelding trotter Resita, a Tabitha Teresczuk trainee, to victory in the $21,000 11th race (1:56.4).
