On The Road Again is the solid 6-to-5 morning-line favorite to win the $309,553 Breeders Crown division for aged pacers tonight at Freestate Raceway.
This division of the crown has attracted seven of harness racing's best pacers and drivers. The seven have earned $6,670,910 lifetime and their drivers have earned more than $170 million in purses lifetime.
On The Road Again is driven by Buddy Gilmour and his main competition is expected to come from the two speedsters, Division Street and Butler B G.
Division Street, driven by Michel LaChance, 1984's most successful race driver, is one of the hottest pacers in North America. Division Street has won 18 of 33 starts this year and has dominated open competition in New York. Earlier this month, Division Street defeated On The Road Again at Freehold Raceway in New Jersey.
LaChance is expected to be battling for the early lead with Butler B G, driven by Ted Wing.
Two weeks ago in the Chesapeake Stakes at Freestate, Butler B G set a fast pace and almost beat On The Road Again. The result instead was a track record victory for On The Road Again in 1:53 4/5.
Also racing will be American Freedom (Ben Webster), Tuff Choice (John Campbell), Armbro Cadet (Doug R. Ackerman) and Guts (Bill O'Donnell).
Post time for the Breeders Crown, the 10th race on a 12-race card, will be 11:10 p.m.
