Officials with The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono have announced that the $100,000 Invitational Trot scheduled for August 22 will be named ‘The Sebastian K’ in honour of the recently-retired trotter that recorded the fastest trotting mile in the history of harness racing to date.

Sebastian K will be the honoured guest on Super Stakes Saturday (August 22). There will be a retirement ceremony for the world champion in the winner’s circle during the race card. The trotted star was retired earlier this month.

The $2.2-million Super Stakes includes The Battle of the Brandywine three-year-old Open Pace, the Colonial three-year-old Open Trot and the Valley Forge three-year-old Filly Pace.

There will be fireworks following the races. First-race post time for the card will be 5:30 p.m.

Sebastian K’s record-shattering 1:49 performance was trotted at Pocono last year. Anyone interested in entering the invitational event should contact the Pocono race office as soon as possible.
