CAMPBELLVILLE, August 21 - Homen Dry had the Define The World series title fall into his lap Thursday night at Mohawk Racetrack. A field of nine lined up Thursday night to contest the $46,600 series finale for two-year-old trotters. Jetpedia, the leg one winner, sprinted off the gate to grab the lead, while Homen Dry, the leg two winner, got away in third. Jetpedia and driver Mike Saftic trotted by the quarter pole in :29.2 and then slowed the tempo down considerably to reach the half way point in 1:00.4. In the third quarter, Homen Dry and driver Chris Christoforou advanced from third into second, while Saftic picked up the speed with Jetpedia to reach the three-quarter pole in 1:29.4. As the field entered the stretch, it appeared Homen Dry was in for a sprint to get by Jetpedia, but Jetpedia made a costly break a few strides into the stretch allowing Homen Dry to inherit the lead and cruise to a 1:58.2 victory. Trained by Brad Maxwell, Homen Dry won by three quarters of a length over stablemate Southwind Stryker, while Lookslikeachpndale took the show spot. Following the race, Christoforou said the trip didn't exactly work out as planned. "It really wasn't where I wanted to be, but because of his habits he will tend to pull up on the front and I didn't really want to be there even though the fractions were slow" said Christoforou. "I had to sit back, but I didn't want to be too far back because the fractions were slow, so I was close as I could be without being on the front." The series finale victory for the son of Credit Winner - Beyond Blue Chip was the second win in a row after finishing second in his first two career starts. "He (Homen Dry) has done quite well," said Christoforou. "He's a bit of tricky little guy to drive at times, but he's got lots of speed." Owned by Paul Van Camp, Ben Mudry and Tim Murray, Homen Dry was a $19,000 yearling purchase at last November's Harrisburg Sale. The winner's share of the purse increases Homen Dry's career earnings to over $35,000. He paid $4.40 to win. Stakes action continues tomorrow night at Mohawk as the three-year-old trotting fillies will be on display in two $101,296 Casual Breeze Stakes divisions. Headlining the second division is Lifetime Pursuit, the winner of this year's Hambletonian Oaks. She will start from post seven with regular driver Yannick Gingras. Post time is 7:25 p.m. by Mark McKelvie, for WEG  

Harness racing fillies dropping down from the Ontario Sires Stakes Gold division to the Grassroots level proved successful in several of today’s $18,000 divisions at Clinton Raceway. That moved proved the ticket for Gee Okeeffe in the opening division. She traded the top position with Dewy Take A Selfie through fractions of :31, 1:03, 1:32.2 and was home first with a two length cushion in 2:03. Superbowl Sunshine closed well to take second while Dewy Take A Selfie was third. Chris Beaver trains the winner, a daughter of Holiday Road he co-owns with breeder Wilbur Lang of Ohio. Gee Okeeffe was notching her second win in five tries this year, winning a Gold division on July 23 at Grand River Raceway. That same shift also proved beneficial for Desis Dream who made her first Grassroots appearance after three Gold starts. She went gate to wire for Steve Byron in :30, 1:02.3, 1:32.4 and held off Giona to win by a neck in 2:03.4. Dolce Far Niente was third. John Bax of Peterborough, Ontario, trains the winner, a daughter of Muscle Mass, with breeder Glengate Farm of Campbellville, Ontario. This was Desis Dream’s first lifetime win in five tries. In the third division the field was reduced to five starters with the scratches of Magical Lass and Magic Dancing. Summer Jewel and Mario Baillargeon set the early tempo of :30.4, 1:03 and 2:04.4. Judy The Beauty came up to challenge past the half and kept pressure on the leader the rest of the way but Summers Jewel hung tough to win in 2:04.4. Judy The Beauty had to settle for place while Moon Dance took third. Baillargeon’s brother Ben of Rockwood, Ontario, trains and co-owns the winner, a daughter of Angus Hall who was recording her second straight Grassroots victory and third overall. She came into today’s event sitting third in the Grassroots standings with 124 points behind Stay In Touch and Judy The Beauty who were tied for first with 137. Mario was back on top early in the next split with first time starter Flexyandiknowit who hit the opening quarter in :31.3. Just past that marker Mass Rail was taken out from third to challenge the leader and overtook her just past the half in 1:03. However, she quickly had a challenger in My Mini Snickers by the 1:33.3 third panel. Mass Rail fought back but was hauled down late by My Mini Snickers and James MacDonald who hit the wire first in 2:03. Mass Rail was second with Tymal Fireitup third. It was the second straight Grassroots victory for the Muscle Mass daughter owned by Ron Phillips of Illinois and trained by Ryan Maxwell. It was the same scene in the fifth division as Mario had Zorgwijk Philly on top early and hit the opening panel in :31. Dustin Jones sent Pinky The Intern up to challenge before the half but Zorgwijk Philly maintained the lead and was by the third panel in 1:32. Despite pressure on the outside and inside Zorgwijk Philly was at the wire first in 2:05 over Delcrest Flexyhall and Pinky The Intern. It was the first OSS start and first win for the Southwind Lustre daughter owned and trained by Wayne Langille of Harley, Ontario. Other winners amongst the Grassroots divisions this afternoon were Winem, a daughter of Kadabra trained by Mike Keeling for owner Paula Wellwood of Cambridge, Ontario and driven by Mike Saftic and Wing Flash, also by Kadabra, who went gate to wire for trainer Wayne Henry, who co-owns with Daylon Farms of Komoka, Ontario, to win in 2:04. This group will meet again in Grassroots action on September 9 at Mohawk. From the Ontario Sire Stakes

The harness racing driver-trainer combination of Randy Waples and Hall of Famer Bob McIntosh connected for victories in two of the seven $18,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots events for two-year-old colt and gelding pacers on Friday night (August 15) at Mohawk Racetrack. Their first winner was Big Moment, a colt by Camluck who just got up near the wire after a second-over trip to take the fourth Grassroots split by a neck in 1:55.1. Pan Street USA (Steve Condren) had taken the lead in the lane after a two-hole trip but just fell short at the finish, and heavy favourite Seaforth (Mike Saftic), the leader at the top of the stretch, had to settle for third.  Big Moment Big Moment, also a winner in Grassroots competition on July 21 at Grand River Raceway, is now three-for-five in the win column overall with earnings of $26,160 for McIntosh, who also bred the colt with C S X Stables.

Rookie colts, trotters and pacers, will star in Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots harness racing action over the next two nights at Mohawk Racetrack and Georgian Downs. On Friday night Mohawk will host the pacing colts and the following night the action shifts for Georgian for the trotting rookies. A total of seven $18,000 divisions for the freshman pacers are slated for Friday night. This is the third Grassroots of the season for this group and two of the starters are looking to remain undefeated in this division as they come in riding two race winning streaks. Single White Sock has been victorious in both previous Grassroots tests, at Mohawk and Grand River, winning his first lifetime OSS outing by more than six lengths in 1:56.2 early last month. He followed that up with a 1:56 two length score in the next event and will attempt the hat trick from post nine in race nine, the sixth OSS test of the night. Barry Treen trains the son of Badlands Hanover for Len Gamble of Etobicoke, Ontario who purchased him for $24,000 at the Canadian Classic Sale. Bred by Tanya Prescott of Southwold, Ontario, the colt is a half-brother to $1.1 million winner Ramegade Bruiser. The only other colt two for two in the OSS thus far entered in Friday’s tilts is Half A Billion who has drawn post three in the seventh and final division, race 11. Mike Saftic will be back at the lines behind the Sportswriter colt trained by Marcel Barrieau for breeder Hudson Standardbred Stable of Quebec. Half A Billion’s only career starts have both come in the OSS and resulted in wins in 1:54.3 at Mohawk and 1:57.3 over Grand River’s half-mile oval. Their contemporaries, the rookie trotting colts, have seen more action so far this season as Saturday’s outing marks their fifth Grassroots event. The colt with the best OSS record to date competing at Georgian is Mandeville who has two wins and a second on his OSS resume thus far. His only off the board finish came on July 20 when he made a break. Trainer Wayne Langille of Harley, Ontario co-owns the son of Majestic Son with Brett Burleigh of Paris, Ontario. Mandeville has drawn post two in race six. Alongside him in post three is Top Dollar, a half-brother to Snow White, a very talented rookie trotter back in 2007 who made $1.4 million from just 19 lifetime starts. Well known New York horseman Ray Schnittker and the Top Dollar Stable co-own the colt who finished third in his Grassroots test on August 8 at Mohawk after starting in the Gold division initially.

CAMPBELLVILLE, August 14 - Homen Dry converted off a second over trip to win the second leg of the Define The World Series on a cool Thursday summer night at Mohawk. A field of eleven contested the second leg of the trotting series for two-year-old trotters. Jetpedia, the leg one winner, took the most support at the windows going off as the 4/5 favourite and got away third after leaving from post seven. On the way to the half, Jetpedia was sent to the lead by driver Mike Saftic and cleared to the front before the mid-way point. Around the final turn, Boli made a first up bid allowing driver Chris Christoforou and Homen Dry to pick up cover and sit in a striking second over position coming off the final turn. In the stretch, Jetpedia continued to trot strong, but in the final sixteenth of the mile, Homen Dry grinded down the favourite and overtook the lead to break his maiden in 1:57. Boli was also able to get by Jetpedia to finish second, a half length behind the winner. Homen Dry, who is trained by Brad Maxwell, had finished second in his first two starts, including a runner-up finish in the opening leg of the Define The World. A son of Credit Winner - Beyond Blue Chip, Homen Dry is owned by Maxwell, Doug Millard, Paul Van Camp and Howard Taylor. Homen Dry sold for $19,000 at last fall's Harrisburg Sale. He paid $18.70 to win. The final of the Define World Series will take place next Thursday night (August 21) at Mohawk. by Mark McKelvie, for WEG

A sloppy harness racing surface did not deter Lady Shadow and My Secret Belle from recording convincing victories in the two $105,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Gold divisions for three-year-old pacing fillies tonight at Georigan Downs. Lady Shadow overcame the less than perfect racing conditions and pressure for almost a half mile to win the first division in impressive fashion. Sectionline Aqua was the early leader in the race and hit the first quarter in :27.3 for Mike Saftic. Doug McNair and Lady Shadow took over just past that point and had pressure from a first up Skippin By as they reached the half in :55.1. That filly continued to stalk the leader and was at her saddle pad by the 1:23.1 third panel but tired at that point allowing Lady Shadow to draw away and win in 1:51.4. Sectionline Aqua took place with Justabit Mean winning the show photo over A Filly Affair. Gregg McNair trais the daughter of Shadow Play owned by Lindsey and Connie Rankin of Michigan. The filly was recording her fourth win in nine tries this year to up her earnings to $247,000. Bred by Winbak Farm, Lady Shadow was a $19,000 yearling at the Forest City Sale. She is the ninth foal from the $200,000 winning Camluck mare Lady Camella and a half-sister to Lady Meghan O ($465,000). A patient steer by Joe Hudon paid off handsomely in the second division. He sat back with My Secret Belle as three of the fillies, Alibi Seelster, Jakardez and Brescia Seelster fought for the early lead. Alilbi prevailed for Jody Jamieson and set the tempo of :26.4, :55.1 and 1:23.4 but broke as the field came out of the final turn. Hudon meanwhile sat second to last during most of the race before unleashing his filly as the field entered the final turn. My Secret Belle gobbled up the racetrack four wide and was an open length winner in 1:53.1 over Shadows Wonder and Jakardez. Hudon bred, owns and trains the winner, a daughter of Mach Three who is now 7-4-3 in 20 starts this year for $214,000 in earnings. The filly is the fourth foal from the Jennas Beach Boy mare Kindly Jenna, and a half-sister to $411,000 winner This Is Wyatt. These fillies will meet again for Gold action on September 8 at Mohawk.

Headlining Mohawk Racetrack’s Monday night (August 11) harness racing program were six $18,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series events for two-year-old pacing fillies, and while she wasn’t the swiftest winner, Wicked Speed’s win in the fifth flight pushed her record to a perfect three-for-three with two of those victories coming in Grassroots action. With Scott Young handling the driving assignment for his father, trainer Bob Young, Wicked Speed came first-over in the final half and wore down leader Marachere (Jody Jamieson) late in the mile to win by half a length in 1:57.4. Fiftyshadesofbay (Rick Zeron) finished third in the race, which was conducted over a track rated good and a second off due to rainy conditions. Bob Young of Guelph, Ontario, also co-owns the victorious daughter of Mach Three with partner Status Stables Inc. of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Wicked Speed, who also won in Grassroots action at Clinton Raceway on July 20 and has now earned $20,000, was bred by GBW Breeding Farms Inc. and was purchased for $10,000 at last year’s Lexington Selected Yearling Sale. Wicked Speed’s dam is the Western Hanover mare Pannie Oakley ($106,925). Sassafras Girl (Phil Hudon) also picked up her second win in Grassroots competition after grabbing a 1:57 triumph in the nightcap. She was in front through fractions of :28.1, :58.4, and 1:28 before she splashed home in 29 seconds to win by two and a half lengths over Little Miss Artist (Mike Saftic). OK Hallelujah (Sylvain Filion) claimed third. Murray Brethour trains Sassafras Girl, a Badlands Hanover filly, for owner Hutt Racing Stable of Paoli, Pennsylvania. Sassafras Girl, who is now three-for-six overall and has banked $21,380, was bred by Winbak Farm. She’s out of the Die Laughing mare Tug River Della ($219,395) and a half-sister to the likes of Rub N Tug ($433,999). Before the rain visited Mohawk, Ride Away Shark (Jody Jamieson) was an impressive 1:53 winner in the third Grassroots contest. She moved from fifth to first on the way to the 57 second half and didn’t look back on her way to a three length decision over Solar Sister (Doug McNair). Ms Mac N Cheese (Sylvain Filion) collected third. Ride Away Shark, another Winbak Farm-bred filly, has a pair of victories from five attempts and has put away $18,280 for trainer Scott McNiven and owners Kim McNiven of Putnam and Thomas Brodhurst of London, Ontario. Those connections took Ride Away Shark, a daughter of Classic Card Shark, out of last year’s Forest City Yearling Sale for $7,000. She’s the first foal out of the Dream Away mare Freedom Away. Double Creme was an OSS winner as a two-year-old filly, and her daughter is now too as OK Heavenly (Doug McNair) won the Grassroots opener by two and a quarter lengths in 1:55. Chase The Shadows (Jody Jamieson) was next in that dash, followed by Maralika (Chris Christoforou). Mark Steacy trains OK Heavenly, a daughter of Sportswriter, for co-owner/breeder Oak Knoll Stables of Campbellcroft, Ontario, Conrad Leber of Montreal, Quebec, Richard Karper of Saint-Laurent, Quebec, and Wheelhouse Racing Stable of Mississauga, Ontario. It was OK Heavenly’s first win from four trips behind the gate, and she has now banked $12,600. Her dam, who earned $415,049 in her career, has already produced multi-time OSS winner OK Boromir (No Pan Intended, $569,884) and OK Commander ($612,304). Also winning in OSS competition on Monday night were: --Lady Jen (Royal Mattjesty-Ladyjack-Cams Card Shark), who tallied in 1:55.4 for driver Sylvain Filion, trainer Scott McEneny, and owner Hutt Racing Stable. She was also the third winner for breeder Winbak Farm. --Southwind Luna (Sportswriter-Lil Presto Hanover-The Panderosa), who clicked in 1:55.3 for driver Billy Davis Jr., trainer Otis Hall, and owner Nasussito Racing Inc. of Ayr, Ontario. Bred by Southwind Farm, Southwind Luna is the first foal out of her dam, who is a half-sister to the likes of $2.6 million earner McArdle.

Harness racing two-year-old pacers of both sexes competed in Ontario Sires Stakes Gold Series action on Sunday evening at Georgian Downs, and the top performance was turned in by Sportskeeper, who established a new track record of 1:52.3 for a rookie pacing colt. Each race went for a purse of $70,000. Sportskeeper (Jody Jamieson) competed in the first division for pacing colts and geldings, and he would be in the lead at the :27.1 opening quarter. He then yielded the front to Bob Ben And John (Chris Christoforou), and that one would go on to click off the half in :56.2 and the three-quarters in 1:24.4. Bob Ben And John brought the field into the stretch, but Jamieson angled his charge to the outside, and he would get up late in the mile to prevail by half a length. Bob Ben And John was the runner-up and Physicallyinclined (Jack Moiseyev) nabbed third. The time shaved a fifth of a second off the existing track record, which had belonged to Funny Bones since he won a Gold Series elimination in 1:52.4 on June 17, 2006. Trainer Casie Coleman of Cambridge, Ontario, also bred and co-owns Sportskeeper, a Sportswriter colt, with partner Merlin Howse of Langton, Ontario. Sportskeeper, who has won three times from four starts and earned $53,000, is the third foal out of the Nuclear Flash mare Keeper Flying, which means Sportskeeper is a half-brother to former Ontario Sires Stakes competitor Keepers Destiny (Intrepid Seelster, $712,747). Coleman also won the second section for colt and gelding pacers with Southwind Indy (Christoforou). Southwind Indy led to the :27.4 opening quarter, the :57.3 half and the 1:25.2 three-quarters before he sprinted home in :27.4 to triumph by half a length in 1:53.1. Jamieson had a pocket trip again in this event with Make Some Luck, but he fell half a length short this time. Drachan Hanover (Mike Saftic) tried the eventual winner from first-over past the half, but wound up third. It was the second win in five tries for Southwind Indy, a colt by Sportswriter who is owned by West Wins Stable, Steve Calhoun of Chatham, Ontario, and Southwind Farms LLC. of Pennington, New Jersey. Southwind Farms also bred Southwind Indy, who was purchased for $45,000 out of the 2013 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale. Southwind Indy, who shows earnings of $88,497, is the first foal out of the Rocknroll Hanover mare Its Only Rocknroll. Its Only Rocknroll’s dam is Armbro Wallflower (Village Jasper), a multiple-time OSS winner at two and three, including the Super Final for three-year-olds in 2002. Jamieson did return to win the final contest for the male pacers with Sporting The Look. He had Sporting The Look on the engine through splits of :28.3, :58.1, and 1:26.3, and although pocket-sitter Dialamara (Randy Waples) made things interesting late, Sporting The Look held sway to score by a quarter of a length in 1:54.2. Mikes Powerhouse (Sylvain Filion) finished third. Sporting The Look, who is trained by Carl Jamieson, finished off a siring sweep of the colt divisions for Sportswriter. The elder Jamieson of Rockwood, Ontario, also co-owns Sporting The Look, who has been victorious in half of his six starts, with breeder 30 Plus Stable of Trenton and Tom Kyron of Toronto, Ontario. Sporting The Look, the third foal out of The Panderosa mare Lyons Mandi ($162,482), did go through last year’s Standardbred Horse Sale in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where he brought $72,000. As for the pacing fillies, Cowgirl Tough (Moiseyev) won the first section in 1:54.2, brushing from fifth at three-quarters to a two length victory in 1:54.2. Heavy favourite Southwind Mischief (Christoforou) led through fractions of :27.1, :57.4, and 1:25.2, but had to settle for second in the end, and Betty And The Jets (Jamieson) grabbed third. Joanne Colville and Emma Christoforou of Moffat, Ontario, and Sigrid Velten of Hochheim, Germany, bred the victorious daughter of Ponder, and now Colville and Christoforou share ownership. Also trained by Moiseyev, Cowgirl Tough broke her maiden in her fourth try, and she has now earned $35,960. She’s the first foal out of the Astreos mare Almost A Lady ($185,980). Public choice Sports Chic (Jamieson) didn’t disappoint in the second filly flight, posting panels of :28.2, :58.3, and 1:27.1 on her way to a 1:54.2 victory. Capela (Waples) tracked the winner from the pocket but fell three-quarters of a length short and Northern Starlet (Filion) was up to finish third. Trainer Blake MacIntosh of Waterdown, Ontario, also co-owns Sports Chic, a daughter of Sportswriter, with partner Hutt Racing Stable of Paoli, Pennsylvania. Sports Chic has a four wins from six trips behind the gate, and she has now earned $139,500. Sports Chic, a Winbak Farm-bred filly who fetched $35,000 at last year’s Lexington Selected Yearling Sale, is the 15th foal out of the On The Road Again mare Vesta Blue Chip, which means Sports Chic is a half-sister to the great Rainbow Blue ($1,600,012), the 2004 Canadian Horse of the Year. In the final filly dash, Code One Hanover (Saftic) broke on the first turn, leaving I Wonder Why (Steve Condren) in the lead at the 29 second opening quarter. Code One Hanover then regained her stride and went back to the lead before the 57 second half. Code One Hanover had opened up a two length lead at the 1:25.2 three-quarters but then went on the gallop again, dropping the top spot back to I Wonder Why. She wouldn’t lose control this time, winning by two and three-quarter lengths in 1:53.4. Win The Gold (James MacDonald) was next, followed by Shesastarreporter (Jon Drury). Trainer Bob McIntosh of Windsor, Ontario, also co-owns I Wonder Why, another filly by Ponder, with partner Mardon Stables of Loretto, Ontario. I Wonder Why, who is now two-for-six in the win column with a bankroll of $42,440, was bred by Doug Ackerman Stables Inc. of Aberdeen, North Carolina, and sold for $12,000 at last year’s Lexington Selected Yearling Sale. She is the third filly out of the Magical Mike mare Model A. The next Gold Series event for rookie pacing colts and geldings will occur on September 16 at Mohawk Racetrack while the two-year-old pacing fillies will race the night before at Mohawk.

CAMPBELLVILLE, August 7 - Jetpedia drew first blood in the opening leg of the Define The World Series for two-year-old trotters on Thursday night at Mohawk. Formerly known as the Bridger, the series was renamed this year in honour of the John Bax trainee, Define The World, who earned more than $1.7 million dollars during his seven-year racing career. The opening leg saw a group of eight battle for a purse of $12,000. Jetpedia, the 6/5 favourite, turned in a dominating gate-to-wire victory to break his maiden in 1:59. Driven by co-owner Mike Saftic, Jetpedia left hard off the gate for a comfortable lead at the opening quarter in :28.2. Saftic slowed things down in the middle half leading through a half of 1:00. and a three-quarter time of 1:30.1. In the stretch, Jetpedia cruised away from rivals with a last quarter of :28.4, under a Saftic hand drive, to win by 3 ½ lengths. Homen Dry, who was second over on the final turn, took second, while Monopoly Blue Chip was third. Jetpedia is a son of Muscle Hill - Baker Black Jet and is trained by Gregg McNair, who shares ownership with Saftic. The maiden breaking score came in the two-year-old gelding's second start of his career. Jetpedia's clocking of 1:59. was a second slower than his career mark of 1:57.4, which was taken in a qualifier on July 22. The second leg of the Define The World Series takes place next Thursday (August 14) at Mohawk. Mark McKelvie

Georgian Downs rolled out the red carpet on Saturday night for the three-year-old colt and gelding pacers of the Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series with five $18,000 dashes going behind the gate. When the dust had cleared, it was Shadios who shined brightest, turning in a career-best 1:50.3 clocking in the fourth Grassroots flight. With Billy Davis Jr. in the bike, Shadios sat in second while Warrawee Phoenix (Scott Coulter) rattled off fast fractions of :26.4, :53.4, and 1:22.2. Davis Jr. already had his charge out of the pocket at three-quarters and he took control entering the far turn. From there, Shadios set sail for the wire, which he reached five lengths to the good over runner-up Regal Babe (Mike Saftic). Twin B Spy (Robert Shepherd) finished in third. Tony Alagna trains Shadios, a Shadow Play gelding, for Great Britain-based owner Tom Hill. Shadios has won three times from six starts this year and he has four career victories. He has earned $26,860 in 2014 and $41,150 in his life. Davis Jr. also won the Grassroots opener with Some Major Beach, the Major In Art half-brother to the great Somebeachsomewhere. Making his first start for trainer Dave Menary, Some Major Beach worked out a second-over trip and then converted it into a 1:52.4 victory. He defeated Major Homer (Travis Henry) by two and three-quarters lengths with Allstar Seelster (Mike Saftic) back in third. Muscara Racing Trust of Ivyland, Pennsylvania, Robert Watson of Ashfield, Australia and Martinez Equine of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania own Some Major Beach. This was his second career win from 17 tries and he has banked $154,226. The other three divisions were all won by driver Scott Coulter. He guided Andreios Kardia to a 1:53.1 decision in the second split; Regal Son to a 1:54.1 tally in the third division; and Lucky King to a 1:53.1 triumph in the Grassroots nightcap. Andreios Kardia, a gelding by Badlands Hanover, is trained by Jeff Madill for owner/breeder Ina Madill of Innisfil, Ont. Unraced as a freshman, Andreios Kardia is four-for-16 this year with $55,350 in the bank. Regal Son, a Stonebridge Regal colt, is trained by Bob McIntosh of Windsor, Ont, who also bred Regal Son with long-time partner C S X Stables of Liberty Center, Ohio. Gordon Wright of Charlotte, Michigan is also part of the ownership contingent. Regal Son is a four-time winner in his racing career and he has earned over $55,550. Andrew McCabe sent out Camluck colt Lucky King for owner Glenview Livestock Ltd. of Guelph-Eramosa, Ont. This was the first Ontario Sires Stakes win this year for Lucky King, who won last year’s Grassroots Championship for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings. He has six career victories and he has stashed away $91,053 for his connections. The next event for the three-year-old colt and gelding pacers of the Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series is slated for August 3 at Hanover Raceway. From the Ontario Sire Stakes

 Three-year-old pacing fillies lined up in five $18,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series divisions on Friday night at Mohawk Racetrack, and it was a host of fillies who had yet to taste Ontario Sires Stakes success in 2014 emerging with victories. Mea Lilley Mark (Mike Saftic), who hadn’t been to the winner’s circle since last November, was the fastest winner, turning in a 1:52 spin of the seven-eighths mile oval in the Grassroots finale. After a first-over trip in the final three-eighths of the mile, Mea Lilley Mark wore down leader and favourite Artful Impulse (Steve Condren) to post the victory by half a length. An Angel Shes Not (Paul MacDonell) finished third. Sue Marie Gangell trains the victorious Whosurboy filly for owner/breeder Kimberly Mark of Simcoe, Ont. Mea Lilley Mark is a two-time winner from 21 career starts and she has earned $39,368. Driver Chris Christoforou scored a pair of off-the-pace wins, guiding Dana Dearest to a 1:53 triumph in the first Grassroots test and then overcoming post 10 to get a 1:54.4 tally with Shadows Wonder in the fourth split. Dana Dearest, a daughter of Jeremes Jet, was making her first start in the Casie Coleman stable for owner/breeder Charalambos Christoforou of Campbellville, Ont. Dana Dearest was winless in four starts last year, but she’s turned it around in her sophomore campaign, going five-for-nine. She has a career bankroll of $48,148. Trainer Dr. Ian Moore of Guelph, Ont. also bred and co-owns Shadows Wonder, a filly by Shadow Play, with partners R G McGroup Ltd. of Bathurst, N.B. and Hockey Hall of Famer Serge Savard of Saint-Bruno, Que. Shadows Wonder, who won last year’s Grassroots Championship for two-year-old pacing fillies and this year’s Kin Pace at Clinton Raceway, picked up her sixth career win and she has now put away $107,020.   Murrayfield (James MacDonald) and Badlyinclined (Jack Moiseyev) were the other winners, and both of them stopped the clock in 1:53. Murrayfield, who was positioned eighth at the half and sixth at three-quarters, rallied through the lane and got up in the final stride to nail leader Alibi Seelster (MacDonell) to win by a neck while Badlyinclined led through panels of :27, :55.3, and 1:24 on her way to a half-length decision over Nefertiti Bluechip (Jody Jamieson). Ben Wallace trains Murrayfield, a Jeremes Jet filly, for owner Holland Racing Stable of Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ont. She has seven wins from 15 career tries and she has now pocketed $78,964. John Kopas handles the training of Badlyinclined, a daughter of Badlands Hanover, for co-owner/breeder Big Als Stables Inc. of Woodbridge, Ont., Glengate Farms of Campbellville, Ont., and LLK Stable of Mississauga, Ont. She has won four times from 19 attempts in her racing career and she has banked $98,994. Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series action for three-year-old pacing fillies will take place next on August 3 at Clinton Raceway.   From the Ontario Sire Stakes

Elora, ON --- A total of seven $16,740 Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series divisions for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers were featured on Monday night (July 21) at Grand River Raceway and they saved the fastest split for last as Single White Sock toured the half-mile oval in 1:56. With Scott Coulter at the lines, Single White Sock was in front through fractions of :27.4, :58, and 1:27.3. Single White Sock turned away a big three-wide bid by Twin B Scandal (Joe Hudon) past three-quarters, and he then kicked clear in the lane to prevail by 2-1/4 lengths. Twin B Scandal wound up second with Pan Street USA (Bob McClure) back in third. It was the second win in three starts for Single White Sock, a Badlands Hanovercolt trained by Barry Treen for owner Len Gamble. Tanya Prescott bred Single White Sock, who was purchased for $24,000 at the 2013 Canadian Yearling Sale. Single White Sock, an earner of $17,281, is the fifth foal out of the Apaches Fame mare Love You Dear, making him a half-brother to millionaire and former Ontario Sires Stakes winner Ramegade Bruiser. Camluck, the long-time stalwart sire of the Ontario Sires Stakes program, had a pair of winners with Big Moment winning the second division in 1:56.1 with Alfie Carroll handling the driving assignment and Mike's Powerhouse picking up a 1:56.4 victory in the third section for driver Trevor Henry. Big Moment broke his maiden in his second attempt for trainer Bob McIntosh, who also bred the colt with CSX Stables. McIntosh and partner Max Newham own Big Moment, the fourth foal out of the No Pan Intended mare Breathtacular. Breathtacular is related to two six-figure earners in Breathdefying and Lucky Encounter. Mike's Powerhouse, who is out of the Artsplace mare Michelle's Jackpot, making him a full brother to the likes of 2012 Little Brown Jug champion and millionaire Michael's Power and millionaire Michelle's Power, is trained by Casie Coleman for owner-breeder Jeff Snyder. Mike's Powerhouse was victorious at first asking after finishing fourth and first in two qualifiers at Mohawk Racetrack. Coleman was right back in the winner’s circle in the next race after Mike's Powerhouse’s victory as her Sportskeeper (Jody Jamieson) romped to a an 8-1/4 length decision in 1:56.3. Coleman also bred and co-owns Sportskeeper, a Sportswriter colt, with partner Merlin Howse. Sportskeeper, who was also making the initial start of his racing career, is the third foal out of the Nuclear Flash mare Keeper Flying, which means Sportskeeper is a half-brother to former Ontario Sires Stakes competitor Keepers Destiny (Intrepid Seelster, $702,855). Sportswriter had another siring credit with Half A Billion, who was a 1:57.3 victor in the sixth Grassroots flight. Mike Saftic drove the colt for trainer Marcel Barrieau. Half A Billion is a homebred for the Hudson Standardbred Stable and he is a perfect two-for-two in his career and in Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series competition. Half A Billion, the fifth foal out of the Western Hanover mare Racey Miss, is a half-brother to multiple OSS winner Racey Miss ($214,571) and Petite Courageuse ($195,733). Also picking up victories were: Bridge Of Stone, a Stonebridge Regal-Dreamlands Sachi (Western Hanover) gelding, who halted the clock in 1:57.3 for driver Scott Coulter, trainer Carmen Auciello, and owners Denarben Stables and Rocco Auciello. He has won both of his Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series tries The Fire Within, a gelding by Whosurboy and out of the Big Towner mare Mollie Hanover. The half-brother to Illusionist ($893,246) picked up his second win from three attempts for driver Jody Jamieson and breeder/owner/trainer Fred Drouillard. The next time the 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers of the Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots Series will be in action is August 15 at Mohawk Racetrack.

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Mother Nature definitely was a major factor in Sunday afternoon's New York Sire Stakes for 2-year-old filly pacers but the heavy rains didn't stop Our Hot Majorette, Bin N Heaven and Bossers Joy from registering victories over the sloppy track.   Bin N Heaven posted the fastest time of the three $36,566 divisions with a 1:59.4 time. Our Hot Majorette and Bossers Joy each lit up the tote board in the other two legs. Mike Saftic managed to hang on at the wire to score a $23.60 win while Bossers Joy and Brent Holland took the final division and returned $80.00 for the victory.   The heavy rain made the track a sloppy mess but Bin N Heaven, entering her race a perfect 2-for-2 in qualifiers including 1:56.3 at Mohawk, found the wet going to her liking. Taking over the lead just before the three-quarter marker, Bin N Heaven (Rock N Roll Heaven-Binions) paced away from the field and beat Mosquito Blue Chip (Jim Morrill Jr.) by 2-1/4 lengths while Fan Mail (Mark MacDonald) finished in third.   "There we no problems at all," McNail said of Bin N Heaven's trip. "She was push button. She went when we needed to go. Those were great fractions considering the weather."   Owned by Frank Bellino and trained by Tony O-Sullivan, it was the first pari-mutuel win in Bin N Heaven's first start.   Our Hot Majorette (Art Major-She's So Hot) showed plenty of heart in the lane and took the opening leg with a head victory over Amertime (MacDonald) in what can only be described as a monsoon rainstorm. Ameritime cut the mile with 31., 1:03 and 1:34.3 but stop Our Hot Majorette in a ding-dong battle down the lane. The heavily-favored Sheeztoughenough (Morrill Jr.) took the show position.   "Wow," was the first comment of driver Mike Saftic when he returned to the winner's circle. "That was a great trip for her in here. I really couldn't see too much though. That was sure an adventurous trip."   Our Hot Majorette is owned Miller Farms and is trained by Eric Adams.   Bossers Joy (Art Major-Esther's Joy) enjoyed the frolic in the wet going and rallied for an impressive head victory over Crucial Moment (Jimmy Whittemore) in the final division. Mydelight Bluechip (Chris Lems) rounded out the top three.   Hitting the half-mile 11-1/4 lengths behind the leaders, Bossers Joy used a slow and steady journey on the outside to snatch the win, getting up in the shadow of the wire for the upset victory.   "She really whipped around the track," Holland said of the last half mile by Bossers Joy. "There were no issues. She raced well." Holland, who tripled on the card, added with a laugh, "We finally got the lead when we wanted it...at the wire."   Bossers Joy is owned by Francis Azur and is conditioned by Kevin McDermott.   In the $12,700 Excelsior A Series, Holland took two divisions with by steering Bugatti Beauty ($24.00) to a 2:03.2 decision and Jag Out ($3.00) to a 2:02.3 win. Hey Kobe ($6.50) won the other leg for driver John Plutino in 2:02.3.   The Excelsior B Series, worth $6,600, went to Delightful Plan ($4.80) with Jeff Gregory in the sulky. They covered the mile in 2:05.2.   The final week of racing for the 2014 season begins on Wednesday night with a 10-race card program set for 5 p.m.   For more information including the latest news, race replays, results and upcoming promotions, go to www.buffaloraceway.com   by Brian J.

HAMBURG, N.Y. --- There's plenty to see and do at Buffalo Raceway Sunday afternoon (July 13) when the popular 'Back To The Track' promotion takes place along with a 13-race program featuring the New York Sire Stakes for the 2-year-old pacing fillies. The action gets underway at 1:05 p.m.   The 'Back To The Track' day, in conjunction with the United States Trotting Association and Buffalo Raceway, features harness racing bingo, free programs, sno-cones, cotton candy, pony rides and t-shirts. It's a great day of activities for those of all ages.   There will be plenty of action on the Hamburg half-mile oval as well with three $36,566 divisions of the New York Sire Stakes, slated as the second, fourth and sixth races, along with three $12,700 legs of the Excelsior Class A series.   The young ladies will be gunning for the divisional track record of 1:56.3 set by Silk Purse (2011) and Summertime Lea (2012). A total of six track marks have been either broken or tied at Buffalo Raceway this season so hang onto your hats.   The first division of the Sire Stakes features Sheeztoughenough (Art Dealer-Sheezadiamondealer) who'll score from the two post with Jim Morrill Jr. Installed as the 5-2 morning line favorite, Sheeztoughenough's last outing was a beauty with a 1:55 win at Mohawk in a $11,280 conditioned pace.   The main threat should come from Ameritime (American Ideal-L'Charm) who enters with two straight victories. She scored in a Excelsior A Class race with a 1:58 mark at Monticello and captured a fillies and mares maiden conditioned race at Tioga in 1:58. Mark MacDonald will get the call on the 7-2 second choice.   The remainder of the field includes My Little Delight (Jeff Gregory), Mo Molly Blue Chip (Kevin Cummings), Our Hot Majorette (Mike Saftic) and Heavens Legacy (Brent Holland).   The inside posts are the place to look in the second division as favorites will start from there. Mosquito Blue Chip gets the two hole for Morrill Jr. and is the 2-1 favorite. She comes to town after finishing a solid second at Monticello on July 4 in a $27,750 Sires Stakes race.   Lurking on the rail is Bin N Heaven (Rock N Roll Heaven-Binions) with Doug McNair in the bike. She was won both her qualifiers including a 1:56.3 at Mohawk Raceway back on June 29 and is the 3-1 second pick.   Others in the division include Amazing Phrasing (Jim Mettinis), Float On By (Saftic), Fan Mail (MacDonald) and Devil Child (Jimmy Whittemore).   The final leg has Neverhaditsogood (Art Major-Indulge Me) who finished second behind Bettor N Bettor in the Sire Stakes at Monticello on July 4. She finished 2-3/4 lengths back. McNair will be at the controls for Neverhaditsogood, who'll score from the four post.   The main threat could come from the rail-sitting Bullville Maggie with MacDonald set to go in the sulky. Bullville Maggie finished third in a $27,250 at Monticello on July 4 and was 6-1/2 lengths. She was straddled with the seven post, however, so the inside draw here could make a huge difference.   Also in the race as Mydelight Bluechip (Chirs Lems), Crucial Moment (Whittemore), Bachata Hanover (Morrill Jr.), Bussers Joy (Holland) and Yes You Can (Saftic).   After Sunday, it will be closing week at Buffalo Raceway with just four cards remaining. The racing schedule shows a 5 p.m. post on Wednesday while Friday and Saturdays will start at 6:40 p.m. Next Sunday is closing day with a 1:05 p.m. matinee slated.   For more information including upcoming promotions, race replays, results and the latest news, go to www.buffaloraceway.com   by Brian J.
