E L Titan beats Father Patrick
E L Titan beats Father Patrick
Three-year-old trotting colt E L Titan ($12.20) held off divisional heavyweight Father Patrick and survived a lengthy judges' inquiry to be declared the winner of the $230,000 Carl Erskine Trot.

Riina Rekila trains E L Titan for Finland owner and breeder Erkki Laakkonen while Ron Pierce was the winning driver.

The Jimmy Takter-trained and driven Odds On Amethyst hustled off the gate from post four and put up a :27.1 opening quarter while his stablemate Father Patrick inherited the pocket spot as Hillustrious broke stride. Down the backstretch, E L Titan advanced from third and cleared to command past the :59.2 half-mile mark with Father Patrick tipping out and Il Sogno Dream second over. E L Titan held command as they raced by the third quarter mark in 1:30 and was able to keep Father Patrick at bay down the stretch for the three-quarter-length triumph in 1:57.2. Il Sogno Dream finished back in third.

Following the race, the racing judges launched an inquiry on the winner examining possible interference to the runner-up in the stretch in addition to an inquiry on the third-place finisher regarding an incident in the backstretch. However, judges ruled there was "insufficient evidence" on both cases and the top three finishers were deemed official.

“It was a spontaneous decision coming out of the first turn to move to the front,” Pierce said after the victory. “With the slow quarter I had to move to stay out of trouble so once I did I just sent him to the front. I had to use him pretty hard to get there, but he was strong tonight."

E L Titan has now won three of his seven seasonal starts while banking over $380,000. The Galt Stakes winner, who was scratched from the Yonkers Trot eliminations, was a runner-up to Father Patrick in the American National Stakes and Canadian Trotting Classic earlier this fall.

“I raced him in Chicago a few weeks ago and he was loaded,” Pierce continued. “I felt then if I would have been closer to Father Patrick I could have beat him that night. Tonight, coming around the last turn he still felt good and I knew we had enough to hold [Father Patrick] off even having to use him so hard early in the race.”
