Oh Well was on the outside for a long time but took the lead on the rim nearing three-quarters and then pulled away to take the third edition of the $1 million Mohawk Million for 2-year-old open trotters on Saturday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
Starting from the pole position, Oh Well got away in fourth for driver Tim Tetrick and was brought off the cones past the 27 3/5 opening quarter to track a two-wide Oh Look Magic (Matt Bax), who was being left out by leader DWs Point Man (Louis-Philippe Roy). DWs Point Man and Oh Look Magic continued to duel through the backstretch, but Oh Look Magic finally got by DWs Point Man and got down to the pylons past the 56 1/5 half, leaving Oh Well to take up the chase while uncovered.
Oh Look Magic and Oh Well would wage battle to around the final bend, but Oh Well had a slim advantage heading to the 1:24 4/5 three-quarters and then widened his lead in the upper part of the stretch, aided by a break from second choice Winners Bet (Dexter Dunn). There was no catching Oh Well from there, as he hit the wire 2 1/2 lengths ahead of a late-gaining Silly Me Hanover (Bob McClure), who rallied from ninth at the half to second at the wire. Proud To Be Lindy (Chris Christoforou) got up for third, followed by Hasty Bid (James MacDonald) and What An Angel (Mark MacDonald).
