Moonshiner Hanover will start from post two for owner-trainer Christopher Beaver along with partners Synerco Ventures Inc. and Bill Manes. Signal Hill races from post five for owners Brittany Farms, David Mc Duffee, Marvin Katz, and Adriano Sorella.

International Moni headlines the third division, attempting to obtain the first win of his career. He ships in off a third-place finish in the William Wellwood Memorial along with Mountain Of Love, who finished eighth following a break at the start. Winless in six starts, International Moni, by Love You out of Moni Maker, has amassed $43,165 in earnings for owner Moni Maker Stable and trainer Frank Antonacci.

The fourth division collects seven trotters. Julie Miller sends Fly On from, by Muscle Hill from the Credit Winner mare Calchips Finisher, from post four for his tenth start this season. Winning five of his nine starts and finishing third in his other four starts, he has earned $60,622 this season for owners Andy Miller Stable Inc., Arden Homestead Stables and Gaitway Stable.

Opposing Fly On is Lars Perry for trainer Jimmy Takter, entering off a break as the 8-5 favorite in a $32,050 division of the Standardbred Stakes at the Delaware County Fair. He’ll race from post seven in pursuit of his first win of the season. He races for owners Christina Takter, John Fielding, Mellby Gard, and Hatfield Stables.

Division five features Peter Haughton champion What The Hill. Sent off the 9-5 favorite in the William Wellwood Memorial, he broke into the last turn, finishing sixth. Winning three of eight starts this season, he has compiled $236,378 in earnings for owners Burke Racing Stable, Our Horse Cents Stables, Jerry & Theresa Silva Stables and Deo Volente Farms.

What The Hill races from post six against New Jersey Viking, an Ake Svanstedt-trainee who has won three of six starts this year including a $55,780 division of the Reynolds at Tioga Downs and the $29,000 Harold Dancer Memorial, as well as Muscles Jared, a George Ducharme-trained son of Muscle Massive who has won four of seven starts this year and exits the $252,000 Pennsylvania Sires Stakes Championship off a fourth-place finish as the 3-5 favorite.

Capping the card and Bluegrass splits is a field of seven highlighted by the Jimmy Takter-trainee King On The Hill. The colt by Muscle Hill from the Viking Kronos mare Lantern Kronos enters from a fourth-place finish in the William Wellwood Memorial. Earning $86,963 over nine starts this year and two wins, coming in an elimination for the Peter Haughton and a preliminary for the Kindergarten, King On The Hill will start from post one for owners Christina Takter, Goran Falk, Goran Andberg, and Hatfield Stables.
