March 23 2019 East Rutherford, NJ – In a field where one scratch (Zlatan) left but six starters in the $25,000 Preferred Handicap for trotters, Miller urged Trolley from the start, setting sail for the top and leading at the quarter in :28.3. The 6-year-old Donato Hanover-Lakeside Bride product continued his sleepwalk to the half in :56.3 as pocket-sitter Rubber Duck and Sutton – who was racing in the three hole – did not move a muscle.
Trolley trotted his third fraction in :27.3 to remain clear on the engine and after coming home in :29.2; he hit the wire two lengths in front of a fast-closing – but non-threatening – Sutton. Rubber Duck held third.
He has 16 wins from 31 career starts and earnings of $353,209 for owners Michael Anderson, Leland Mathias, Greg Gillis and Louis Willinger...... read the complete story here
