Utica, NY (WIBX) - A local illusionist stunned the crowd at the Boilermaker post race party, with his accurate predictions of not only the race winners, but their exact times, too.

Illusionist Leon Etienne put the names of the winners in a sealed package at the Mayor's office last week, where it sat untouched until after the race on Sunday.

His predtions were placed inside a briefcase early Sunday morning, and suspended from the stage, by a rope, in mid-air.

Boilermaker Director Tim Reed and Mayor Roefaro lowered the briefcase, opened the package, and announced the predictions of both male and female winners, which were accurate down to the second.

“This is the first time I have pushed my prediction abilities to such a specific magnitude!” said Etienne, "It couldn’t have turned out any better!"

Etienne's successful predictions shocked the crowd of around 20-thousand people.
