Campbellville, ON --- Driver Trevor Ritchie, who drove Champlain stakes winner Angostura to $171,981 in earnings last year at two, qualified her in 1:57.3 Friday morning (June 4) at Mohawk Racetrack. The Angus Hall–Peluso 3-year-old filly is eligible for the Casual Breeze and Elegantimage which begins on June 11. She is trained by Dan Creighton for Danterra Racing Stable.

Ritchie was again busy this morning being reunited with 3-year-old trotter Zorgwijk Kingpin who earned $226,777 last year at two. The 2009 OSS Gold final winner went gate-to-wire this morning, stopping the timer in 1:58, winning by 15 lengths. A $3,700 yearling purchase two years ago is being pointed towards the Goodtimes Stakes which begins on June 19.

FBs Terror also went behind the gate this morning to make her 2010 debut after being scratched sick by trainer Mario Macri two weeks ago. The 3-year-old daughter of Western Terror finished a strong second this morning, timed in 1:56.1.

Driver Trevor Ritchie and trainer Mario Macri spoke with WEG’s media department this morning to offer their thoughts on their respective horses.
