The fields are set for the sixth Claiming Crown, which will be held July 17 at Canterbury Park and broadcast nationally on the TV Games Network. In all, 62 horses have been entered in six races.

Trainer Scott Lake returns to the event he has dominated with seven horses spread throughout the six-race, $550,000 series. Lake has won nearly $300,000 in the five previous edition of the Claiming Crown.

Rafael Bejarano, the nation's leading rider by wins, will have mounts in all six races, including Rough Draft, the favorite in the $50,000 Iron Horse.

In the $150,000 Claiming Crown Jewel, morning-line favorite Polish Times will be ridden by Seth Martinez for owner/trainer Lake. The 7-year-old gelding has won three of his last four starts and has amassed career earnings of more than $400,000. Lake will saddle three horses in the Jewel.
