Bar Hopping Scores 'Classic' Victory
Many of harness racing's top trotters converged at Mohawk Racetrack for Saturday's $2.6 million stakes night featuring the $687,000 Canadian Trotting Classic and $632,000 Maple Leaf Trot.

Bar Hopping vaulted off cover to defeat the 3-5 favourite Marion Marauder and give trainer Jimmy Takter his third straight victory in the $687,000 Canadian Trotting Classic.

Bar Hopping followed up victories by Pinkman (2015) and Father Patrick (2014) and is Takter's fifth overall winner in the prestigious stakes event.

Dia Monde (Randy Waples) took the lead off the gate from post six and trotted a :27.1 first quarter before Scott Zeron made his move with Hambletonian and Yonkers Trot champion Marion Marauder. The elimination winner, who was also victorious at Mohawk in the Goodtimes Trot earlier this year, swept up to take over the lead just past the half in :55.4. As Marion Marauder raced to three-quarters in 1:24.2, Southwind Frank (Yannick Gingras) moved underway from mid-pack with Bar Hopping and Tim Tetrick following the cover. Marion Marauder continued to lead the field into the stretch, but Bar Hopping burst onto the scene late and drew off by four lengths to win in 1:53.1. Bee In Charge (Chris Christoforou) finished third.

"There was enough speed in there and I was trying to find a good horse to follow," said Tetrick of his racing strategy. "I saw Yannick not getting away as good as I think he wanted and I got a good trip following him all the way to the promise land. Scotty's horse was putting up decent enough fractions and my horse got to track him all the way to the top of the lane and he did the rest from there."

Bar Hopping earned his fifth win in 13 starts this year and first in a stakes final against Marion Marauder and Southwind Frank, who he defeated in their Canadian Trotting Classic elimination last week.

"He's been really close [to Marion Marauder and Southwind Frank this season], but just hasn't got it done, but not lack of trying," said Tetrick. "He put it all together tonight. There's still a lot of money to go for the rest of the year."

"We've got a lot of partners, and great partners, and I am so happy for this win," said Takter. "I really thought we had the Hambo winner after his elimination -- he looked fantastic. Unfortunately, the storm came up and it was windy and he didn't come up good in the second heat. The horse has been drawing bad; he drew bad in Pocono, he had the nine-hole and he raced a tremendous race and finished third [in the Beal]...These three horses here, they've been fantastic. I was due to win this race, a big race, with this horse because he's a very, very nice horse."

Bar Hopping will look to keep his winning momentum rolling as he heads to The Red Mile's Grand Circuit meet in Kentucky next.

The Muscle Hill-Cocktail Hour colt, whose earnings soared over $900,000, gave Ontario owners Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld another Saturday stakes victory following their homebred two-year-old filly Ariana G's Peaceful Way win earlier in the night. Takter's wife Christina and the Ohio-based Hatfield Stables also share ownership of Bar Hopping.

The winner returned $10.10 at the betting windows as the 4-1 third choice.
