Mohawk Racetrack in Campbellville, Ontario hosted the 2008 Breeders Crown Open Divisions for older horses, as well as 4 rich undercard stakes for younger horses. Racing conditions were ideal, and all of the stakes events were contested at 1 mile around 2 turns of the fast, banked 7/8-mile oval. The weather was perfect for a night of harness racing, with a slight tailwind through the stretch, clear skies, and cool temperatures.

In the $638,580 Open Trot, 3-5 favorite Enough Talk was quickest away and got the initial quarter in 27 seconds before 9-2 Arch Madness and driver Brian Sears settled in front of him for the backstretch trip. Arch Madness got the half in 55 2/5 and 3/4 in 1:23 4/5, leading the field into the stretch. Corleone Kosmos and driver John Campbell, who sat in midpack fifth early, came out for the drive and closed well, getting up to win by a length in 1:51 4/5. It was another 1 1/4 lengths back to 9-1 Digital Image third, while Enough Talk faded late to finish fourth.
