84 HOOF BEATS DECEMBER 2017 $527,500 THREE-YEAR-OLD COLT TROT What The Hill, driven by David Miller, was an easy, 3¼-length winner in 1:52.3 over Lindy The Great and supplemental entry International Moni. Trained by Ron Burke for co-owners Burke Racing Stable, Our Horse Cents Stables, J&T Silva Stables, and Deo Volente Farms, What The Hill is a colt by Muscle Hill – K T Cha Cha bred by Stan Klemencic. What The Hill crossed the wire first in the Hambletonian earlier in the year, but was disqualified and placed ninth due to interference in the stretch. That race was still on the mind of the colt's connec- tions, even after winning the Breeders Crown final. "Dave Miller said he was going to make it up to us, and he just did it," said Mike Gulotta of Deo Volente Farms. "He's a man of his word." CORONATIONS
