Abbey Road C inched a little bit closer to becoming a double millionaire thanks to a sharp victory at Mohawk on Monday evening, and Muscles Marinara became a millionaire thanks to a third-place effort later on the card.

Keith Jones rolled Abbey Road C to the front in a $32,000 conditioned assignment, and the nine-year-old son of Incredible Abe didn't look back. He was allowed to dictate the tempo through panels of :27, :56.4 and 1:25.3 before kicking home in :28.3 to stop the clock in 1:54.1.

Starsel made a late rush at the veteran, but came up a neck short. The Liquidator made up a pile of ground in the back half of the mile to finish a lapped-on third.

"He's been a great horse since the word 'go'", said trainer/driver Keith Jones. "His best races are on the front or in the two-hole. He doesn't race from the back too often. He's just a horse who does whatever you ask him to do. He has the Earl Rowe Memorial Cup coming up, and then if all goes well the Maple Leaf Trot."

Margaret Charlton of Sarnia, ON holds the papers on the 58-time winner, who bumped his lifetime bankroll to $1,907,595 with the win.

Muscles Marinara celebrated a money milestone on Monday evening by virtue of a third-place finish in his $27,000 conditioned assignment for trainer Casie Coleman and driver Jody Jamieson.

The eight-year-old son of Super Bowl grabbed a $3,240, which was more than enough to send his lifetime earnings over the $1 million mark for owners Leonard Zelin and The Gandolfo Stables of New Jersey.
