International Moni 

Scott Zeron, Frank Antonacci, Moni Maker Stable 

Fresh colt out of the great Moni Maker three-for-three in 2017 with a career best 1:52 in an overnight @ Big M on July 22, Scott Zeron looking for a Hambo repeat with another Goodtimes winner, Frank Antonacci was second in 2008 with Crazed 

2 

Devious Man 

Andy Miller, Julie Miller, Stroy Inc., Andy Miller Stable 

Empire Breeders Classic winner @ Vernon Downs in a career best 1:52.2, upset Long Tom in the Beal in 1:52.4, second to Walner in the fastest Dancer division, primed for Team Orange Crush, who finished a close third with Sutton last year 

3 

Long Tom 

Tim Tetrick, Marcus Melander, AMG Stable Oy 

2017 NJSS champion kicks off Marcus Melander's one-two punch, second in the Beal Final after dominant elimination in 1:52.3, rallied to win a Dancer division in 1:52.4 after missing two weeks 

4 

Enterprise 

Tim Tetrick, Marcus Melander, Courant Inc 

Second to International Moni on July 22 after fading to fourth as the heavy favorite in the Goodtimes Final, stablemate to Long Tom with only seven career starts has major upside 

5 

Perfect Spirit 

Ake Svanstedt, SRF Stable 

Beat Devious Man in a Beal elimination, took a sharp new mark of 1:51.2 in the Arthur Tompkins Memorial @ Big M on July 22, AkeSvanstedt may have the sleeper in this year’s Hambletonian

What The Hill 

Dave Miller, Ron Burke, Burke Racing, Our Horse Cents St, J & T Silva St, Deo Volente Farms 

2016 Peter Haughton Memorial winner finished second to Long Tom in a Dancer division, tuned up with a wire-to-wire career best 1:52.1 in the Reynolds Memorial on July 29

Giveitgasandgo 

Corey Callahan, John Butenschoen, Harmony Oaks Racing St, David J. Miller, Lawrence Means, VIP Internet St.  

2016 PASS champion added Lasix & beat Jake with a perfect trip in a career best 1:52.1 on July 29 off a sick scratch, consistent ridgling can’t use Lasix in the Hambletonian 

8 

Bill’s Man 

Corey Callahan, John Butenschoen, William Wiswell, M And L of Delaware 

Second in the EBC Final, third to Walner in a Dancer division, rallied for third behind What The Hill in Reynolds Memorial on July 29, part of a strong duo for John Butenschoen

Victor Gio IT 

Jimmy Takter, C. Takter, A. Somma, F. Ruscigno, N. Pietro De Mitri
