NYSS Colt Trotters at Vernon

Friday night's 12-race card at Vernon Downs is trotters only, featuring five divisions of New York Sires Stakes sophomore colts racing for a combined purse of more than $150,000.

Last year's NYSS division final winner, the locally based Blacktuxwhitesocks, faces a stiff test in race seven.

The star of the Howie & Jessica Okusko barn, owned by Wanda Polisseni's Purple Haze, has been dominant in his last two stakes scores.

Friday's race finds accomplished foes Whata Winner, Aruba Vacation, Margarita Man and Stimulus poised to contest the issue and all posted inside of "Tux".

The Sires Stakes events are races 1, 3, 5, 7 & 8 on the card with seven Miracle Mile trotting divisions in support.

Post time is 6:55 PM.
