Mohawk Racetrack treated its fans to more of the Ontario Sires Stakes program Tuesday evening, as three-year-old trotting colts and geldings braved the elements in a set of $105,000 Gold Series divisions.

Jitterbug overcame a second-tier start to capture the first division in 1:56.4 for driver Sylvain Filion and trainer Marcel Barrieau. The son of Kadabra-Jodis Jayme got away sixth and watched race favourite Muscle Matters chop out fractions of :28, :58.1 and 1:27.4. Jitterbug hitched a ride on cover in backstretch before making a three-wide move coming off the final turn. The colt’s :28.3 closing quarter was more than enough for him to win by 1-3/4 lengths over Muscle Matters in 1:56.4. Ole Jack Magic rounded out the top three finishers in the rich tilt.
