A total of 27 sophomore trotting colts, including Ontario Sires Stakes superstar Text Me, have entered in the Goodtimes Trot and will face off this Saturday in three eliminations for a spot in the $387,000 final, which will take place on Pepsi North America Cup night, Saturday, June 26.

Text Me heads into Saturday’s eliminations coming off a 1:55.1 career-best victory in the Ontario Sires Stakes Gold final on May 31 at Mohawk Racetrack. With $455,326 stashed away in earnings, the 2009 O’Brien Award finalist is the leading money-earner out of the 27 colts entered.

Randy Waples is listed to drive the homebred Kadabra-Dial Nile colt, who has drawn Post 6 in the second elimination slated for Race 3 (8:12 p.m. post time). Trainer Bob McIntosh shares ownership of the bay with C S X Stables of Liberty Center, Ohio and Dave Boyle of Bowmanville, ON.

Last year’s Kentucky Sires Stakes champion, Victors Future, will make his season’s debut in the same elimination for trainer-driver Trond Smedshammer and owner Joseph Muscara of Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania. The son of Valley Victor-Baby Bella, who earned $185,252 at two, has been assigned Post 8.

Meanwhile, Grumpy Jake and Zorgwijk Kingpin, last year’s OSS Super Final runner-up and third-place finisher to Text Me, will face off in the first elimination set to open Saturday’s card (7:30 p.m. post time). Grumpy Jake and Jack Moiseyev will leave from Post 5 for trainer Mike Guitard while Zorgwijk Kingpin will make his season’s debut for conditioner Ronnie MacLean with Trevor Ritchie from Post 4.

In the third elimination set for Race 4 (8:33 p.m. post time), this year’s Tie Silk Trotting Series winner, Lorenzo Dream, and driver Sylvain Filion have been assigned Post 3 for trainer Vincent Courne and owner-breeder Reve Avec Moi Dreamwithme of Knowlton, QC.
