Christoffer Eriksson Drove five-year-old champ, American Expatriate Jerry Riordan trained winner

Yonkers, NY— A twister hit Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway Saturday afternoon (October 14th) with fierce, record velocity at 4:05 p.m./ET as the world watched, and left an annihilated field in its wake two minutes later.  Italy’s Twister Bi, driven by Christoffer Eriksson, blew the doors off of nine classy rivals while obliterating the world record for 1-¼ miles to capture the $1-million Yonkers International Trot at the historic harness racing oval. The Italian flag-carrier did it in devastating style in a race timed in 2:22:1, smashing the record for the distance over a half-mile track set by last year’s champion Resolve (2:23:4).
