The first crop of Sportswriter has exploded onto the Ontario Sires Stakes scene as the two-year-old pacers start their racing season.
On Monday night colts by that stallion captured all three of the Gold divisions for rookie pacing colts at Mohawk and when the fillies debut in Grassroots and Gold divisions later this week there are a multitude his offspring entered.
The Grassroots gals will headline Mohawk’s Thursday night card in five $18,000 divisions with 11 Sportswriter fillies among them. The following night the Gold fillies will commence their 2014 schedule in three $70,000 splits at Mohawk on a card that also includes Canadian Breeders Championship eliminations for three-year-old trotting colts and fillies, featuring several OSS winners to date.
Friday’s card is also highlighted by two $40,000 Maple Leaf Trot eliminations which will offer Ontario race fans their first close up glimpse of Swedish superstar Sebastian K who became the fastest trotter ever in his most recent start at Pocono with a 1:49 victory. He’s drawn post six in the third race where his rivals include last year’s OSS champion Flanagan Memory from post five.
