Tuning up for next Saturday's Canadian Pacing Derby, Shamballa was back in action locally for the first time in a month during a Friday morning qualifier at Mohawk Racetrack.

The six-year-old sat off the pace early for trainer-driver Rick Zeron, as is customary, before commencing a first-over bid just after the :55 half-mile mark. From there, Shamballa was on top by three at the head of the lane and stretched that margin fourfold. A :54.2 back half put the pacer under the wire in 1:50.4, 12 lengths better than his closest rival.

Co-owned by Zeron, Tao Racing LLC, Howard Taylor and Cool Cat Racing Inc., Shamballa (Somebeachsomewhere-Bolero Takara) boasts a summary of 3-2-3 in 10 seasonal starts with $316,993 in earnings. He comes into the 2016 Canadian Pacing Derby in impeccable form, finishing in the top three in his last four races and boasts a win over his rivals in the 2016 U.S. Pacing Championship earlier this month.

Shamballa is one of 10 top-notch older pacers entered in the 2016 Canadian Pacing Derby, with the post draw taking place on Saturday evening.
