Six Pack too good in New York Sire Stakes

13 September 2018 | Written by Nikki Reed

The Ake Svanstedt trained Muscle Mass colt Six Pack was an easy winner of his Milt Taylor New York Sire Stakes division at Yonkers Raceway yesterday.

The last start Yonkers Trot winner moved to the lead at the quarter pole marker and was never seriously tested throughout, running out the winner by a length and half from Yonkers Trot runner-up Helpisontheway in a slick 1:54.6 mile rate.

It was the world champion 3-year-old colt's 11th lifetime win, taking his career earnings to an impressive $893,215.

With stakes winnings of $694,573 in 2018 alone, he is the richest male trotter in North America to date this year and is second only in earnings to the Hambletonian winning filly Atlanta.

Bred by Brittany Farms, Six Pack is out of the stakes race winning Cantab Hall mare Pleasing Lady and is from the maternal family of Great Success.

Purchased for just $30,000 at the Lexington Select Yearling Sale in 2016, Six Pack has proven to be an absolute bargain buy for his connections.
