Brilliant North American trotter Six Pack cemented his claim to the US 3YO Trotting Colt of the Year title with another dominant performance in the $210,000 Matron Stakes at Dover Downs on November 15 (US time), taking his 2018 winnings past $1,000,000 in the process.

Having missed the Breeders Crown through illness, the world champion son of Muscle Mass made light work of winning the last of this year's Grand Circuit feature races for sophomore trotters  - taking control before the quarter pole and then skipping clear of his rivals in the back straight to score by four lengths from Fashionwoodchopper and Mississippi Storm.

It was the Ake Svanstedt trained colt's 11th win from 14 starts this season and took his 2018 earnings to an impressive $1,075,648.

Overall Six Pack is the winner of 15 races and $1,274,290 in stakes.

Stablemate and fellow Muscle Mass 3-year-old Plunge Blue Chip became her sire's latest millionaire on the same race card, as although third in the Fillies Matron Stakes it was enough to take the equal fastest ever 3-year-old trotting filly's lifetime earnings to $1,003,559.
