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.
For further information, please visit www.empirecitycasino.com.
The alphabetical list of International Trot participants, with their “home” countries, are…
BBS Sugarlight (Norway)
Bee a Magician (Canada)

Natural Herbie (United States)
Oasis Bi (Italy)

Several other International Trot-related promotions and giveaways shall be announced in the coming days.
Again, please note the International is part of a matinee card, with first post at 2 PM and the race itself going at approximately 3:10 PM. The race is to be drawn Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 6th.
