Harness racing fan favourite Undercover Boss stepped off the fastest mile in four two-year-old trotting colt Grassroots divisions at Kawartha Downs on Saturday, June 29.

The son of Ken Warkentin and trotting master Trevor Ritchie reeled in pacesetter Gord Brown of Brighton and his mount Theresademoninme through the stretch to score the 2:01.1 victory. Rockwood resident Rob Fellows conditions Undercover Boss for his partners Yolanda Fellows of Rockwood, and breeders Reg and Donna Higgs of Denfield.

Ritchie made a second appearance in the winner’s circle following the fourth Grassroots division, guiding Striking Hurricane to commanding front end victory in 2:04.3 The Striking Sahbra colt finished four lengths in front of Federal Strike and Kiwi Press, who is trained by Peterborough resident John Bax and driven by his son Mathew. Ronnie MacLean conditions Striking Hurricane for Hutt Racing Stable of Pennsylvania.

In the Grassroots divisions he did not win, Ritchie finished third. In the second division the Acton resident guided MacLean trainee Media Eclipse to a third-place result behind 2:03.2 winner Massive Muscles and driver Jean Bernard Renaud of Cambridge, who shares ownership of the Muscle Mass colt with trainer Julie Walker of Owen Sound.

The third split saw Ritchie cross the wire third with Norm Dunstan trainee Lexus Rocky, two and three-quarter lengths behind winner Striking Patrick. Ryan Holiday drove Striking Sahbra son Striking Patrick to the win for owner-trainer David Holliday of Mount Forest.

The two-year-old trotting colts make their second Grassroots start at Mohawk Racetrack on July 15. Ontario Sires Stakes action returns to Kawartha Downs on Saturday, July 6 with the first Grassroots event for the two-year-old trotting fillies.
