The finest two and three-year-old pacers and trotters in North America will be showcased on Saturday evening, October 28, at Woodbine Racetrack when the eight championship Breeders Crown finals, worth a total of $5.1 million, are run.

The eliminations were held last Friday and Saturday and the biggest news from those was the broken leg suffered by Hall of Fame and leading money-winning driver John Campbell in the final elim on Saturday evening. Another horse went down and Campbell and Scootin Direct could not avoid him and also went down. Campbell's leg was fractured badly and he will likely be out for months while Scootin Direct snapped his shoulder and had to be euthanized. The other horse who went down only had cuts and scrapes and required some stitches.

The richest race of the evening is the $694,485 3-year-old Colt Pace which includes elim winners Dave Panlone, with driver Brian Sears, and Mister Big, with driver Jody Jamieson. Others who will get support are Pepsi North America Cup winner Total Truth and driver Ron Pierce and Artistic Fella and driver Cat Manzi who has won 11 of 17 races this year, including the $1 million Meadowlands Pace. Last year's 2-year-old Colt Pace winner Jeremes Jet and driver Paul MacDonell will be back again as well.

The $569,250 3-year-old Colt Trot will be a showdown between millionaires Glidemaster and Majestic Son for divisional honors in Canada. Glidemaster would have been driven by John Campbell, and no decision has been made yet on who will be his replacement. He has won 7 of 13 starts this year including the Hambletonian and the Kentucky Futurity. Majestic Son will be driven by Trevor Richie and he has won 13 of 18 starts this year including the $1 million Canadian Trotting Classic over Glidemaster in September.

The Breeders' Crown races will begin at 7:45pm with the 2-year-old Colt Trot and will end up at 10:47pm with the 3-year-old Colt Pace. Seven of the eight races will be televised live in Canada on The Score from 8-11pm and HRTV in the US will also be showing all eight races this year.

Below are the entries and odds for the two big races, the 3-year-old Colt Pace and Trot. You can find the entries and post positons the rest of the races on the next page along with a link to profiles for all the horses in each race.
