INNISFIL, ON — Chelseas Chance earned her second Grassroots victory at Georgian Downs on Tuesday evening and jumped back to the top of the two-year-old trotting filly division standings.

The Kadabra daughter and driver Steve Condren of Milton eased away from Post 1 in the fifth $15,000 Grassroots division and tucked in fourth on the rail as Erin Hall led the field through fractions of :28.2, :59.1 and 1:28.4. Turning for home Condren asked the fan favourite for an extra gear and Chelseas Chance responded with a smart finishing kick that propelled her to a three and three-quarter length victory in 1:58.4. Supreme Monarch closed well to be second, leaving Erin Hall to settle for third.

Windsor resident Bob McIntosh conditions Chelseas Chance for his partner, and fellow breeder, C S X Stables of Liberty Center, OH. Through four Grassroots appearances the filly has three wins and one second for a point tally of 175.

Condren and McIntosh also teamed up to earn Lenny Mac her second Grassroots win. Another homebred daughter of Kadabra, owned by McIntosh and Earl Hill Jr. of Ohsweken, Lenny Mac cruised along on the front end to a five and one-half length victory in a personal best 2:00.3.

The victory, over Mount Juliette and Majestic Jewel, boosted Lenny Mac into third spot in the division standings, behind her stablemate and Muscle Girl, whose Grassroots win streak was halted at three when she made a miscue in the fifth race and finished seventh.

Taking advantage of Muscle Girl’s error was Serendipitous, who looked very impressive in her first lifetime start, circling around the leaders and trotting down the stretch to a four and one-half length victory in 1:58.4 for driver Jody Jamieson of Moffat. Jamieson engineered the win for his father, trainer Carl Jamieson of Rockwood, and Thomas Kyron of Etobicoke. Pocket sitter Jayport Princess and Oceana rounded out the top three.

The other Grassroots divisions were captured by Danica (2:00); My Kind Of Pretty (2:00.2); and Jamandra (2:00.2).

The two-year-old trotting fillies make their fifth Grassroots start at Grand River Raceway on August 14, and Ontario Sires Stakes action will be back at Georgian Downs next Tuesday, Aug. 13 with the fourth Grassroots event for the three-year-old trotting colts.
