We Will See wins the 2012 Mohawk Gold Cup at Mohawk Racetrack

Closing out the stakes action was the $100,000 Mohawk Gold Cup Invitational for older pacers. 22-1 Golden Receiver battled for the lead with 15-1 River Shark through fractions of 25 2/5, 54 1/5, and 1:21 4/5 while stalked by 13-1 Atochia and 5-2 We Will See. Entering the lane, We Will See took over the lead, and he held off late-running 7-5 favorite Betterthancheddar by a nose in 1:48 2/5. It was another 2 lengths back to Atochia third.

Winning trainer Sam De Pinto said, "He had to come first up, but he likes that kind of a trip. Betterthancheddar raced super, he followed us I think the whole way and it was pretty close. They're all good horses, you can't take nothing away from any of them. If I had to put my finger on anybody it would be Betterthancheddar and Mark Harder's horse Golden Receiver. I thought those two were probably the toughest ones in the race. I would have liked to work out a trip behind them, but it didn't work out that way. But we still got the job done. He did what he had to do. He's a tough horse, he knows how to win."
