Full siblings Mount Wilton and East Coaster won consecutive races at Suffolk Downs Oct. 14.  Both horses are by Graeme Hall out of the Our Emblem mare Eastlynne. May May Stable owns Mount Wilton, who was bred in Florida by Eugene Melnyk. Frances McDonnell is the owner and breeder of East Coaster.

In the sixth race, Mount Wilton earned his ninth career victory with a 2 ¾- length triumph. Ridden by Carlos Quinones and trained by John Rigattieri, the 5-year-old gelding returned $9.80, 4.80, and 3.80.

East Coaster followed that up in the seventh race with a two-length score under Yamil Rosario. It was the 4-year-old filly's seventh career victory for trainer George Handy.  East Coaster paid $9.40, 4.20, and 3.40.

The Graeme Hall victory parade continued in the eighth when Gramatic ($5.40) rolled to an authoritative win.  Gramatic is a 3-year-old daughter of Formatic and was ridden by Orlando Bocachica for trainer Charles Assimakopoulos.
