Saturday's Hambletonian Day produced incredible performances on the racetrack, with several records being broken. Despite the extreme heat and humidity, more than 24,000 turned out at the New Jersey oval. The total North American handle for the card was up nine per cent from the previous year with $6,227,077 wagered.
