ARIANA G TO REPRESENT U-S IN MILLION DOLLAR INTERNATIONAL TROT


The Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld co-owned homebred daughter of Muscles Yankee comes off a track-record (1:52.1) effort in Friday night's (Sept. 27th) Dayton Trotting Derby. It was her fifth win in 11 seasonal starts and 26th in 37 career races ($2,367.709).

The International would serve as the 11th venue where Ariana G has raced, though her first small-track try. Twice a Breeders Crown champ, twice a Dan Patch award winner and with a Hambletonian Oaks win leading a gaudy resume, her accomplishments are numerous. Now, she prepares to meet some of the world's best trotters.

"I spoke with trainer Jimmy Takter earlier tonight to offer the invitation, and he immediately accepted," race secretary Steve Starr said. "As I said when we announced the nine foreign entrants, it should be a great race."
