Six of the top trotters in North America will make their way to Vernon Downs this Friday afternoon to square off in the $137,000 Credit Winner Final.

Among the starters is San Remo Kosmos, who hails from the Jimmy Takter Stable. He'll be handed by Jim Morrill Jr.

The five-year old son of S Js Photo has won two of his fourteen starts thus far in 2008 with seasonal earnings of more than $139,000.

In his last start San Remo Kosmos finished third in the $200,000 Titan Cup at The Meadowlands, timed in 1:52.4 behind Corleone Kosmos and Arch Madness.

American Lane from the Carl Cito Jr. barn with Catello Manzi listed to drive will also grace the field. The six-year old son of Primrose Lane has won seven of his 20 seasonal starts and carries a 2008 bankroll of more than $250,000 for New York partners David Scharf and Jerry Silva.

The lone mare in the field is Flash Lightning, who raced last week in the $361,225 Armbro Flight Final at Mohawk. The four-year old Dream Vacation mare finished fifth timed in 1:54.2 but had traffic trouble from Post 10 throughout the mile.

Anthony Mannino trains Flash Lightning for the Lightning Stables of Roosevelt, New Jersey and the driver assignment is still to be announced.

Here is the field in post position order:

$137,000 Credit Winner Final
1. Up Front Ben
2. Flash Lightning
3. Beach Nut Brand
4. San Remo Kosmos
5. American Lane
6. Prayer I Am
