Recent Bluegrass Stakes winners Cantab Fashion and Green Manalishi S will each put their respective win streaks on the line this Thursday (Oct. 4) at the Red Mile, as the colts are set to clash in the third of three divisions of the $275,600 Trixton International Stallion Stakes, which is for two-year-old colt and gelding trotters and is sponsored by the Trixton Syndicate.

Trained by Jim Campbell, Cantab Fashion won his fourth consecutive race last week when he trotted to a 1:55.3 victory in his Bluegrass division. The Cantab Hall colt has $64,500 in his bankroll and competes for Fashion Farms LLC. He will start from Post 1 with David Miller at the helm.

On the opposite side of the gate, Green Manalishi S, the runner-up in the Peter Haughton Memorial and winner of the William Wellwood Memorial, will start from Post 9 with Tim Tetrick in the bike. The Marcus Melander-trained Muscle Hill colt enters off a 1:56.1 win by three-and-three-quarter lengths as the 1-9 favourite in his Bluegrass split. Competing for Courant Inc., Green Manalishi S has banked over $340,000 in earnings.

Chin Chin Hall, who recently upset his Bluegrass division in 1:55.4 while racing at odds of 14-1, will be making his third career start when he lines up in Post 3 for the first of the International Stallion Stakes divisions. The Melanie Wrenn-trained Cash Hall gelding will have Peter Wrenn in the bike for owners David Mc Duffee and Gene Oldford Farms LLC.

Kentucky Sire Stakes champion Forecast, who recently finished third to Chin Chin Hall while racing as the 2-1 favourite, is set to tangle with Chin Chin Hall again on Thursday. Nearing $200,000 in earnings, the John Butenschoen-trained Cantab Hall colt has recorded five wins from 10 starts and races for owners William Wiswell, Jean Goehlen and Eugene Schick. Corey Callahan will be in the driver’s seat and will start from Post 4.

Aldebaranwalkabout, who pulled the biggest upset during the opening night of Bluegrass action, will return to the track for the second of the International Stallion Stakes divisions. Having come from off the pace, the Jonas Czernyson trainee stormed through the ‘good’ track to finish second to favourite Dont Letem, but was ultimately placed first due to the public’s choice having not obeyed the breaking rule. He won at odds of 29-1, recorded his second career win from what was his fifth career stat, and pushed his earnings tally to over $50,000 for owner Aldebaran Park Inc. Andrew McCarthy will pilot the Muscle Hill colt from Post 8.

The nine-race Thursday program – which will also feature a pair of $4,000 amateur-driver trotting events that will honour Hall of Fame inductees Joe Holloway and Linda Toscano – will get underway with a first-race post time of 1:00 p.m. (EDT).
