When the top money-earners among the dozen trotting mares entered to contest their Crown division declined a bye to the final, the connections of Autumn Escapade and Lavec Dream were eager to advance directly to the Aug. 22 final .

Divisional leader Classic Lane opted to race rather than take a bye and drew post 10 in the $40,000 elimination on Saturday, Aug. 15. The next highest money-earner for the season, Spice Queen, also wanted a race before the final and drew post nine. The first eight finishers in the single elim will advance to the final and the elim winner may choose her post position.
