Of the seven international entrants set to compete in the $1 million Yonkers International Trot at Empire City Casino, four have found their way to the Raceway.

After a couple of days in quarantine (Newburgh, NY), Dreammoko (FRA), Oasis Bi (ITA), On Track Piraten (SWE) and Twister Bi (ITA) made themselves at home in Westchester. It’s the third visit for both Oasis Bi and On Track Piraten.

The three other overseas horses—Midnight Hour (FIN), Shadow Woodland (FIN) and Tripolini VP (DEN)—are to be housed off-site at approved facilities.

Post position for the 39th edition of the International shall be drawn Tuesday afternoon (Oct. 10) at a midtown press luncheon.
