TORONTO, October 27 Wheeling N Dealin remained undefeated in nine lifetime starts after capturing the $600,000 Breeders Crown Two-Year-Old Colt Trot on Saturday night at Woodbine.

The Dustin Jones pupil and driver Sylvain Filion got away mid-pack behind Royalty For Life (Tim Tetrick), who clocked the opening panel in :28.

As the field entered the backstretch, elimination winner Wheeling N Dealin was on the move, clearing to the front past the half in :57.3.

Dontyouforgetit (Yannick Gingras), who made a bid for the lead on the final turn, added pressure to the even-money favourite, while clocking three-quarters in 1:26.3.  The colt then broke stride in the stretch, which gave Royalty For Life room to attack as he was locked in the pocket.

Wheeling N Dealin was able fend off Royalty For Life to score the lions share of the purse by three-quarters of a length, while stopping the clock in 1:56. Murmur Hanover (Ben Baillargeon) got up for third.

Hes done everything weve asked him so far this year, said Filion. Hes just amazing. He gave me a little scare on the last turn. He got a little bumpy on me and I had to take ahold of him. But as soon as we hit the stretch he was gone. It feels sweet. Its just great.

The son of Cantab Hall-Quick Credit, who also captured the William Wellwood Memorial Trot at Mohawk, now boasts earnings of $683,544 for owner Ecurie Synergie.

Wheeling N Dealin returned $4.20, $2.80 and $2.50, combining with Royalty For Life ($3.90, $3.40) for a $14.60 (2-8) exactor.  A 2-8-10 (Murmur Hanover, $11.40 to show) triactor was worth $367.600, while a $1 superfecta [2-8-10-6 (Caveat Emptor)] paid $1,508.95.
