A field of 26 top three-year-old pacing colts and geldings, the largest and deepest in many years, will contest the eliminations for the 53rd edition of the $475,000 Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids at the Meadows.

Three $25,000 eliminations are set for Saturday, July 20, which will feature a first-race post time of 1:05 p.m. The $400,000 Adios final will be contested the following Saturday (July 27), which will feature a first-race post time of 11:35 a.m. The final, which will be slotted as Race 15 on the 16-dash card, will anchor a blockbuster program that will include five other Grand Circuit stakes as well as a $50,000 Invitational Pace.

Among the headliners in the Adios elims are Workin Ona Mystery, who finished third in the finals of both the Crawford Farms Meadowlands Pace and the North America Cup, beaten by a combined margin of less than two lengths; Brassy Hanover, who overcame 45-1 odds to earn second in the $600,000 Hempt final; and Captain Victorious, who was the third-place finisher in the Hempt final despite a brutal trip from Post 8.

Tony Alagna leads all trainers with five Adios entrants, while Ron Burke and Ray Schnittker will be represented by three apiece. Other trainers with multiple contenders are Brett Pelling and Norm Parker, each with two.

The first three finishers in each elimination will advance to the final, and their connections will earn the right to choose their post positions. The remaining post positions will be determined by random draw.
