YONKERS, NY, Tuesday, September 29, 2015—What’s an International Trot without a chapeau?

Perish the thought, which is why Yonkers Raceway is giving away International Trot hats (see accompanying photo) to commemorate the return (after two decades) of the world-class event.

Fans who attend the Saturday, Oct. 10th, million-dollar International receive a complimentary hat (while supplies last). It’s a spiffy, blue and yellow number, featuring the International Trot logo.
