Lawrence B. Sheppard Pace elimination winners Tailgunner Hanover and Do Over Hanover have drawn Post 3 and Post 8, respectively, for this Saturday night’s $107,500 final.

Yonkers’ premier event for ‘open’ two-year-old pacing colts and geldings honours the man who made Hanover Shoe Farms North America’s leading Standardbred breeding operation. Fittingly, both elimination winners are Hanover-breds.

Tailgunner Hanover, a $50,000 Well Said colt co-owned (with Joe Sbrocco, Frank Baldassare and Howard Taylor) by his trainer/driver Ray Schnittker, has won two of three career starts. He romped a week ago, never giving any of his rivals a shot in a six and a quarter-length victory.

His life-best 1:56.1 effort was the exact same time as Do Over Hanover’s maiden-breaking, three and three-quarter-length win in the earlier elimination. The $25,000 Western Ideal colt is trained by Jim Campbell for co-owners Jeffrey and Michael Snyder and Robert Unice.

The field for the Sheppard, which has been carded as the fifth of a dozen Saturday races (approximate post time 8:30 p.m.) appears below.

1 – Autotone Hanover – Tyler Buter
2 – War N Munn – Dan Dube
3 – Tailgunner Hanover – Ray Schnittker
4 – Artmagic – Mark MacDonald
5 – Rodeo Rock – Dan Dube
6 – Endeavor – Pat Lachance
7 – Gleneagles – George Brennan
8 – Do Over Hanover – Jason Bartlett

Yonkers’ live season continues Thursday through Saturday (all at 7:10 p.m.).
