Mass Money Repeats In City Of London Trotting Series

Published: May 24, 2024 09:15 pm EDT

The City Of London Series for trotters continued on Friday evening, May 24 at The Raceway at Western Fair District with the Mark Etsell-trained Mass Money repeating in the fillies and mares division.

A winner in the opening leg of the series last Friday, driver Scott Young worked out a similar trip in round two for Mass Money, sending the favourite first-up from third after the first lap and defeating the front-striding Moxiebow by half a length. After going winless in five starts as a two-year-old, the Muscle Mass-P L Gemstone filly is now three-for-three in her sophomore year with her latest victory a new lifetime best, clocked in 2:00. Etsell trains and shares ownership of the winner with Robert Newton, Peter Porter and Lindsey Turner. He also drove his maiden filly Tymal Contessa to a fourth-place finish with the show prize going to Hallie Intheclouds.

The division for male trotters went to the Gregg McNair-trained Arcadia Seelster, who battled HP Musical Alarm on the front through the final quarter and prevailed in an 8-1 upset by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:59.1 for local owners Ross and Brent Holmes. Travis Henry drove the three-year-old Muscle Mass-Angels N Heaven colt to a maiden-breaking victory, ending a streak of three fourth-place finishes to start his career. Teasin rounded out the top three.

The preliminary leg divisions were each worth $8,000 with the $20,000 (added) finals scheduled for Camluck Classic night next Friday, May 31.

The City Of London Series is for Ontario-sired horses four years old and younger that were non-winners of $10,000 lifetime as of midnight March 1, 2024.
