Thinking Out Loud won the $1.5 million North America Cup on Saturday night, finishing in 1 minute, 47-4/5 seconds at Mohawk Racetrack in the world's richest pacing event to break the stakes record and tie the Canadian mark.

Thinking Out Loud, driven by Randy Waples, gave trainer Bob McIntosh his first victory in the event, beating Time To Roll by a head.

Dapper Dude, McIntosh's other entry in the 10-horse field, finished third.
