Canadian star Jody Jamieson cemented his status as one of the world's elite harness racing drivers after a dominant victory in Monday night's $50,000 Drivers' Championship at Tioga Downs.
"I think I'm under a lot of scrutiny when I come to the United States to drive horses," said Jamieson, who added Tioga's $25,000 top prize to his second World Championship earned earlier this month. "I think people look at me and think he's just a Canadian kid. He can't compete against our guys."
