Field announced for inaugural Mohawk Million

September 21, 2020

MILTON, September 21, 2020 – The field for the inaugural Mohawk Million is set with each of the nine slot owners declaring a horse to race in their slot prior to Monday’s noon deadline.

The $1 million (USD) race for two-year-old trotters will take place this Saturday (September 26) at Woodbine Mohawk Park with a full field of 10 lining up. The Mohawk Million follows a buy-in formula with nine slots in the race sold earlier this year for $110,000 (USD) each. The tenth and final slot was awarded to the winner of the William Wellwood Memorial, On A Streak.

Each of the nine slots sold were considered an entity that were allowed to be sold, traded or leased. All nine slot owners have retained their slots with several opting to privately negotiate a deal to have a horse they do not own compete in their slot.
