TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec - Neither rain nor a sloppy track with a five second allowance could put a damper on harness racing driver Louis-Philippe Roy's 2017 return to the Hippodrome 3R Sunday as he scored a track record eight winners on the card, including the first four races on the program. Roy, the 2016 Future Star O'Brien Award Winner and the leading driver at both H3R and Rideau Carlton last year, now calls Toronto home as he has been competing this year at Woodbine Racecourse and Mohawk Raceway and is currently the second leading dash winning and money winning driver in all of Canada. Roy started off the day scoring an upset win in the very first race with Restless Hanover, paying $15.70 to win. He then completed the Daily Double in the second race with race favorite Trys Little Prince, leading from start to finish, paying $4.50 to win. In the third race Roy was able to get live cover second-over with Surveillance ($5.20), tipping three-wide on the final turn and gunning down race favorite R Rkadabra for the victory. Then in the fourth race, an opening round division of the $100,000 Quebec-Bred Series for four and five-year-old pacing mares, it was Louis-Philippe Roy once again, this time with race favorite HP Sissy. Skyfall Sena (Jocelyn Gendron) was the first on the lead but right after the opening quarter mile, driver Stephane Brosseau had HP Pandora on the move and in command. They lead past the half mile marker and into the backstretch. It was then that stablemate entry, HP Sissy, and Roy began grinding it out first-over and they were able to wear down the pacesetter on the final turn and sprint home a winner by three-quarters of a length. HP Pandora held for second with Skyfall Sena third. Trained by Jean Tourigny, HP Sissy is a four-year-old mare by Up The Credit, bred and co-owned by Claude Hamel of Ayer's Cliff with Michel Damphousse of Louisville. She paid just $2.80 to win. Last year HP Sissy was the three-year-old filly champion in Quebec. The only reason that Roy did not win the fifth race, was because he did not have a horse to drive in the race. It was one of two races he was not listed to compete in Sunday. Roy returned to the winner's circle for the fifth time in his first six drives in the 7th race division of the $100,000 Quebec-Bred Series for horses, overpowering the field in the backstretch with favorite Half A Billion in 2:00.3, the fastest mile on the 13-race card. Leaving from the outside in post seven, Roy could not make it to the top and took back with Half A Billion as Mr Match On Beach (Stephane Brosseau) led the field with Sports Authority (Pierre-Luc Roy) in second place at the opening quarter mile. Then by the half mile, Roy came back out with Half A Billion and started grinding it out first-over on the sloppy track. They were not only able to collar Mr Match On Beach in the backstretch, but pass them by before the three-quarter mile marker and then pulled away in the stretch to win in a romp by six lengths. Mach On The Beach (Pascale Berube) was second with stablemate entry Mr Match On Beach third. Trained by Francis Richard for co-owners Michel & Francois Letarte and Jean Allaire and Corey Giles, it was the third win this year for Half A Billion. The five-year-old gelding is sired by Sportswriter and after today's victory, is still $499,645,884 away from earning his name. He paid $3.10 to win. Roy was not done yet as in the ninth race he was driving the race favorite, Code Word, who broke stride after the start of the race over the sloppy track, then came back with a bold three-wide move in the backstretch, was hung three-wide through the final turn and kept on coming on to win the race, paying $2.90 to win for trainer Charles Gaudreault. The day was not over yet for Roy, as he won #7 in the 12th race with Quint Largo ($6.50) for trainer Pierre Ouellette, Jr. over race favorite Marc Hanover. With his seventh win on the day, Roy tied Yannick Gringas (2014) for the most wins ever at H3R on a single race program and then proceeded to break the record in the 13th and final race of the day. Driving the 1/5 favorite, Royal Kee Wee N, Roy took no changes, moving three-wide at the half mile marker, getting parked out around the turn and then clearing to the lead before the three-quarters and drawing away in the stretch for the triumph. TRACK NOTES: Driver Stephane Gendron won the 8th race Preferred Trot for the second straight week with Caroluzzo ($6.80), who led from start to finish. He also drove Updragons Rocket ($3.90) to victory in the Preferred Pace. Gendron is now just five wins away from his 4,000th career victory. Jamigo is the winningest horse so far at H3R this season, posting his third win in four starts on Sunday for driver/trainer Daniel LaFlamme in the tenth race trot.

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, July10, 2016 - While most fans Sunday afternoon were waiting to see how trainer/driver Yves Filion's Xpert Bayama would do in his Hippodrome 3R half mile track debut in the eighth race, Filion's Clodam Bayama was totally ignored in the fourth race second division of the series for fillies and nicely rewarded her backers, paying $17.40 to win. The spotlight was on the second round of the Breeders Cup Series at 3R for three-year-old colt and filly pacers with two divisions for each gender on the program. Art De Gagnee (Mario Charron) was first on the lead from the rail in the fourth race but gave way at the opening quarter mile to the 1/9 race favorite, Miss Babe Delight in :29.3. They raced to the half in 1:01.4 as HP Pandora (Stephane Brosseau) came first-over and gave live cover to Wild River Swan (Louis-Philippe Roy). Then in the backstretch the action really heated up. HP Pandora was able to put a head up on Miss Babe Delight but could not pass her by and then from the back of the pack, Yves Filion had Clodam Bayama flying three-wide and it was all three horses vying for the lead at the three-quarters in 1:32.4. Miss Babe Delight dug in for Berube on the lead as PH Pandora began to fade and Clodam Bayama stuck three-wide around the final turn, but as they started down the stretch, Clodam Bayma proved to be the strong horse, collaring Miss Babe Delight and winning by a half-length in 2:03.1. It was the second win in ten starts this year for Clodam Bayama, who two starts back had won at Rideau Carlton in 1:56.2. The homebred daughter of Bettors Delight is co-owned and bred by Filion's Bayama Farms with Jacques Damours. She went off at odds of 7-1. HP Sissy and driver Mario Baillageon had little trouble scoring her second straight win in the series. The daughter of Up The Credit went to the early lead in the third race over Imagine Speed (Stephane Gendron) by the opening quarter mile in :29.1. She then cut the mile through the half in :59.3, three-quarters in 1:30.2, then cut loose in the stretch to win by three and three-quarter lengths in 2:01. Imagine Speed was second with Drift Panic (Gaetan Lamy) third. Her time over the off track was five seconds slower than her victory last week in 1:56.1. HP Sissy is trained by Jean Tourigny, bred and co-owned by Clauder Hamel with Michel Damphousse, both from Quebec. She paid just $2.10 to win at the 1-9 favorite. In the seventh race first division for pacing colts, HP Patriote and driver Louis-Phillipe Roy were the 1-4 wagering favorite but did not race that way early on. Mister Godro (Stephane Gendron) went right to the lead and cut the mile to the opening quarter in :30 and the half mile in 1:01 as Roy was coming first-over with HP Patriote. But it seemed the race favorite could not get into proper gear and was lagging behind. Roy then found the right gear for HP Patriote as once they started down the backstretch, the son of Vintage Master took off, cleared to the lead at the three-quarters in 1:30.4 and then strolled home an easy winner in a romp by nine and one-half lengths in 2:00.2. Mister Godro was second with Magster (Gaetan Lamy) third. Trained by Gerard Demers and co-owned and bred by Claude Hamel with Les Ecuries GLD, Inc. of QC, it was the second straight win and sixth victory in just seven starts this year for HP Patriote. He paid $2.50 to win. In the eighth race second division for colts, there was excitement from the very start of the race as four horses all vied for the early lead. Yves Filion's Xpert Bayama caught the worst of it, getting parked out four-wide, but once the field settled around the turn, he was able to urge Xpert Hanover to the lead over Sports Authority (Mario Charron) in a speedy :28.3. Then it was EY Cowboy (Louis-Philippe Roy) getting caught on the outside so they pressed Xpert Bayama to the half mile in :58.3 as Filion was not going to allow them to get the lead. Once they started down the backstretch, Mario Baillargeon sent Dance With Joe three-wide with a big brush of speed and they cleared past Xpert Bayama, but then became rough gaited at the three-quarters in 1:28.4 and had to pull wide right from the field. This enabled Filion and Xpert Bayama to retake control of the race, Charron then came first-over with Sports Authority as Dance With Joe came back into the hunt three-wide and now four-wide on the final turn was the fast closing Mr Mach Jimmy and driver Pascal Berube. Down the stretch they came. Xpert Bayama began to fade, Dance With Joe was tiring but still game, Mr Mach Jimmy was trying, but it was Sports Authority who showed true grit and dug in for the victory in 2:00.1 by three-quarters of a length. Dance With Joe was second and placed third for interfering with Mr Mach Jimmy, who was placed second. Trained by Maxime Velaye, it was the fourth win in seven starts this year for Sports Authority. The son of Sportswriter posted a lifetime mark for the Determination Stable of Montreal, QC and at 13-1 odds paid $28.00 to win. Track Notes: The 14-year-old trotter, Pablo Angus, in his final year of pari-mutuel racing, made a break at the start of the second race, but was able to not only recover, but take the lead after the opening quarter mile and crush the field by eight open lengths. The $815,000 career winner was driven by Gaeton Lamy and covered the one-mile race over the sloppy track in 2:05.1. Trainer Jean Tourigny had a double on the afternoon program and is now tied with defending leading trainer, Maxime Velaye, and Yves Tessier this season, each with nine victories. Right behind them is Daniel Martin with eight wins. Coming up Tuesday the Hippodrome 3R hosts the Quebec/Eastern Ontario Regional Driver Championship. Eight top drivers will compete in six races and the two top point earners will advance to the championship at the Raceway at Western Fair on Friday, October 14 to determine who will represent Canada at the world driving championship next year, that will be held in Canada. The eight drivers competing Tuesday evening at 3R are Jacques Beaudoin, Pascal Berube, Gord Brown, Guy Gagnon, Sylvain Lacaille, Gaetan Lamy, Brett MacDonald and Louis-Phillipe Roy. First race post time Tuesday is 7:00 pm. From the Quebec Jockey Club

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec – On Sunday afternoon at the Hippodrome 3R, the track plays host to the second round of the $450,000 Breeders Cup Series for three-year-olds. Both colt and filly pacers headline the race card. There is a newcomer on the scene who could very well rattle some cages and his name is Xpert Bayama. This gelded son of Up The Credit hails from Yves Filion’s Bayama Farms in Saint-Andre-D’Argenteuil, QC. The homebred was unraced at age 2 and makes his first start ever on a half mile track Sunday. “This colt was very anemic as a two-year-old,” said Yves Filion, “so I decided not to race him last year and I think he is better now at 3 because of it.” It is never an easy task to switch from racing on the big ovals at Mohawk and Woodbine Racecourses in Ontario, but that is what Xpert Bayama is going to try and accomplish. “Going on a half mile track should not be a problem for him.” Filion added. “My training track is 5/8th of a mile with a 5/8th turn and a half mile turn. He will do well at 3R.” The job is not made easier as Xpert Bayama drew the far outside post eight for his 3R debut in the eighth race second division for colts. He comes to 3R from Mohawk Raceway where he was seventh last week in the Ontario Sire Stakes, but showed great early speed from post seven, getting to the front by the opening quarter mile in :26.3, but failed to hold up on the front end and finished seventh. In his prior start, Xpert Bayama was feeling the best of his career as he scored a lifetime record in 1:51.1. He has been driven exclusively for Yves Filion, by his son, Sylvain. Coming into 3R, Xpert Bayama will be driven by Yves, who has more experience racing then most everyone else in the race and he will be inducted in early August into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame. Thus if anyone can get Xpert Bayama to overcome post eight and handle the half mile turns for the first time, it will be Yves Filion. “He (Xpert Bayama) is a good horse,” Filion explained. “Not good enough for the Gold Circuit in Ontario but he showed already he can win in the Grassroots. This series at 3R is also perfect for him. I will try and race him in both and hope for the best. “Rain or shine tomorrow, my colt should do very well.” Filion said. The Hippodrome 3R has some of the best turns of any half mile track in harness racing and if Xpert Bayama and Filion can handle them from post eight, they will then have to contend with rivals Dance With Joe and Mr Mach Jimmy. Dance With Joe was very impressive in his maiden victory last week, taking an opening round of the Breeders Cup Series in 1:58.2 and starts alongside Xpert Bayama from post seven for driver Mario Baillargeon. Mr Mach Jimmy was last year’s series final winner and despite being winless in six starts this season, was a game second last week in the opening round. He starts from post six and will again by driven by Pascal Berube. The first colt division takes place in the seventh race when the big favorite, HP Patriote, starts from post eight for driver Louis-Philippe Roy. Last week the son of Vintage Master blew the field away in the backstretch and won with ease in 1:56. The two filly divisions are each headlined by opening round return winners. HP Sissy (post 4) in the third race won in a romp in 1:56.1 while last year’s champion, Miss Babe Delight (post 2) heads the fourth race and comes off her first win of the year in 1:58.1.

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, July 8, 2016 - All it takes these days to put a smile on harness racing trainer Jean Tourigny's face is ask him about his three-year-old pacing filly, HP Sissy. Last week at the Hippodrome 3R, HP Sissy and driver Mario Baillargeon etched that smile on Tourigny's into stone as he watched them crush a field of six rivals in the opening round of the Breeders Cup Series with an eight and one-half length romp. The series enters the second round this Sunday with two divisions for both fillies and colts. There are four preliminary rounds with the top eight point earners returning Sunday, September 4 for their respective $65,000 finals. "She is the best filly for this series and in my barn," Tourigny said. "And last week she raced very good for a half mile track." Good is an understatement. HP Sissy was sensational. The daughter of Up The Credit, who last year tied the track record at 3R for two-year-old fillies with a 1:57.3 record, has come back to 3R a year old and faster. She not only left from post six and took command and never looked back, but stopped the teletimer in 1:56.1 for her second win this season. HP Sissy was bred and is co-owned by Claude Hamel of Ayer's Cliff, QC with Michel Damphousse of Louiseville, QC. "I don't go for records," Tourigny said. "I think it is important that my filly is feeling good and fresh for this series." This Sunday, HP Sissy starts from post four and will be the overwhelming favorite in her division. "She came out of last week's race feeling good and healthy," Tourigny said," so I expect a good performance from her this week." Other contenders in the field include Drift Panic (post 3) and Imagine Speed (post one). The fourth race second filly division is headed by last year's series champion, Miss Babe Delight, who starts from post two for driver Pascal Berube. The daughter of Bettors Delight wired the field last week in 1:58.1 for her first win in six starts this year for trainer Dany Fontaine. She will be taking on Wild River Swan (post 5), Star Speed (post 3) and Clodam Bayama (post seven). The pacing colts get underway in the seventh race where HP Patriote is saddled with the difficult task of starting from the far outside in post eight for driver Louis-Philippe Roy. The son of Vintage Master is still the morning line favorite despite the bad post as it did not hamper his efforts last week when he starts from post six, came three-wide in the backstretch, collared the race leader by the three-quarters and then pulled away for a five and one-half length score in 1:56. Other contenders in the field include D Gs Ninja (post three), Shanghai Warrior (post one) and Chummy Park (post six). The final division, also for colts, is race eight and Mohawk Raceway invader, Expert Bayama, is the morning line favorite. He starts from post eight for trainer/driver Yves Filion. In his second start back he scorched Mohawk's oval with a lifetime mark of 1:51.1 for his third win this year. The gelded son of Up The Credit is owned and bred by Bayama Farms. Xpert Bayama will have his work cut out for him as he faces some formidable foes in series opening week winner, Dance With Joe (post seven), Mr Mach Jimmy (post six) and EY Cowboy (post two). Track Notes: Post time Sunday is 1:30 pm. A free race program and free video streaming is available at www.quebecjockeyclub.com. Coming up Tuesday evening at 3R is the Quebec/Eastern Ontario Regional Driving Championship. Eight top regional drivers will compete with the two top point earners heading to the finals to see who will represent Canada in next year's World Driving Championships, which is being hosted in Canada. The eight drivers competing in six races are Jacques Beaudoin, Pascal Berube, Gord Brown, Guy Gagnon, Sylvain Lacaille, Gaetan Lamy, Brett MacDonald and Louis-Phillipe Roy.

TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec – HP Sissy and driver Mario Baillargeon set a Breeders Cup Series stakes record for harness racing three-year-old pacing fillies with a 1:56.1 triumph at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday. There were four opening round divisions of the $450,000 Breeders Crown Series for three-year-old colt and filly pacers. In the eleventh race second division for pacing fillies, the overwhelming 1/9 entry of HP Sissy and HP Pandora did not disappoint the racing fans. Mario Baillargeon sent HP Sissy to the lead before the opening quarter mile in a speedy :27.4. Then they backed it down to the half mile in :59.1 as stablemate HP Pandora (Louis-Philippe Roy) came first-over to challenge and then settle in second place. By the three-quarters in 1:27.2, HP Sissy was in complete control and then pulled away from everyone in the field, strolling down the stretch for a nine and one-half length romp. Stablemate HP Pandora was a distance second with Star Speed (Stephane Gendron) third. It was the second win this season for HP Sissy, a daughter of Up The Credit, trained by Jean Tourigny and co-owned by the breeder, Claude Hamel with Michael Damphousse of Louisville, QC and paid just $2.30 to win. Her time of 1:56.1 surpassed the prior stakes record for her age and gait of 1:56.4 that was set by Racey Miss in 2013. There are four weeks of preliminary round action in the Breeders Cup with the top eight point earners returning on Sunday, September 4 for the $65,000 finals in each division. Establishing himself early on as the “horse to beat” in the series was HP Patriote and driver Guy Gagnon in the third race first division for pacing colts. Starting from post six, Gagnon and HP Patriote had road trouble at the start and was forced to take back to last after the start of race. Sagawi (Jocelyn Gendron) had the early lead but had to give way to last year’s series champion, Mr Mach Jimmy and driver Pascal Berube by the opening quarter mile in :28. Then by the half mile marker in :57.4, Mr Mach Jimmy was still in control with D G’s Ninja (Jonathan Lachance) coming first-over and HP Patriote second-over after catching up with the field. Then in the backstretch, Gagnon moved HP Patriote three-wide and with an amazing brush of speed, shot right by Mr Mach Jimmy before the three-quarters in 1:27.2. From there HP Patriote cruised home, pulling away from the field for a five and one-half length triumph in 1:56. Mr Mach Jimmy held for second place with D G’s Ninja third. It was the fifth win in six starts this year for HP Patriote. The son of Vintage Master is trained by Gerald Demers and co-owned by Les Ecuries GLD, Inc. of St-Andre-Avelin with breeder Claude Hamel of Ayer’s Cliff, QC. He paid $3.20 to win. It was the second win on the day for Hamel, who also co-owns HP Sissy. The sixth race second colt division saw lots of early action as Power Fun (Stephane Brosseau) took the early lead, then gave way to Shanghai Warrior (Sylvain Lacaille) in a slow :30.1 first quarter. All the while the race favorite, Sports Authority (Mario Charron) was in last place. Dance With Joe (Mario Baillargeon) was quick on the move to try and take the lead, but Lacaille played a little hardball to the half mile marker in :59 before giving way. Then Charron came charging up with Sports Authority and was able to get a tuck in second place at the three-quarters in 1:27.4. On the final turn, Baillargeon asked Dance With Joe for more and the colt scooted away from the field in the stretch to win with ease by four and one-half lengths in a mild clocking of 1:58.2. Power Fun nosed out Sports Authority for second place. Sired by Roll With Joe, it was the first win in seven starts this year for Dance With Joe. He is trained by Jacque Dupont for owners Gestion Levesque and Les Ecuries Dorleans of QC. He paid $6.60 to win. The fillies got underway in the eighth race with last year’s return champion, Miss Babe Delight and Pascal Berube, toying with the field. Sent off as the 2/5 wagering favorite, Berube sent Miss Babe Delight to the front from post six, overtaking Clodam Bayama (Yves Filion) before the opening quarter mile in :29.3. Berube then backed off to the half mile in 1:00.2 before flushing Imagine Speed (Stephane Gendron) to come first-over. Then past the three-quarters in 1:29.1, the race was all but over as Miss Babe Delight held the field at bay, winning by one and one-half lengths over Wild River Swan (Louis-Philippe Roy) with Clodam Bayama third in 1:58.2. It was the first win in six starts this year for Miss Babe Delight. The daughter of Bettor's Delight is trained by Dany Fontaine for Ecurie Gaetan Bono, Inc. of Montreal, QC and paid $2.80 to win. Track Notes: The three-year-old pacing filly, Jimbelina ($2.10), remained unbeaten with her fourth straight victory at 3R this season, winning the fourth race in 1:58.2. She is the winningest horse at 3R this meet. Live racing resumes Tuesday night at 3R with the opening round of the Breeders Cup Series for three-year-old trotting colts and fillies.

JUNE 16, 2016 - Driver Sylvain Filion, the reigning Lampman Cup title holder, is off to another quick start in the Ontario Sires Stakes harness racing program, padding his early season lead with a pair of Grassroots victories at Mohawk Racetrack on Thursday evening. Filion opened the program, which featured six $18,000 divisions for the three-year-old pacing colts and geldings, with a sharp 1:51.4 win aboard Spirit Shadow. "I didn't know him at all," said Filion of the first-time OSS starter. "I know the trainer, he's a buddy of mine, Jacques Dupont, and he said he liked him. I just went with my feeling and he left the gate real good, and then we got covered up by the favourite and when I moved him down the lane he just exploded. That was a nice surprise, I didn't really expect that." Leaving from Post 8, Filion rolled Spirit Shadow to the front before the :27 opening quarter, but quickly picked up cover from Vegas Dream who led the field to the :56 half and 1:25 three-quarters. Able to slip out of the pocket in the stretch, Spirit Shadow laid down a :26.2 final quarter to claim the Grassroots trophy. Vegas Dream settled for second, with Chalk Player earning the third-place finisher's share. Unraced at two, the Shadow Play son now has four wins and two thirds in eight sophomore outings for Dupont and owner Denis Goyette of Laval, QC. Filion's second victory came in the third division with Xpert Bayama, who controlled the tempo en route to a 1:51.2 score over last year's Grassroots champion St Lads Moonwalk. Solo Story finished well behind the duelling leaders in third. "I thought he was a little flat last time he raced and Stephane (Larocque) told me he done some vet work on him and he was much better tonight," noted Filion, a three-time OSS driving champion. "I could feel in the post parade he was livelier, and he was way more aggressive, so I just turned him loose and he responded well." Also unraced at two, Xpert Bayama improved his record to three wins and one second in six starts for trainer Stephane Larocque of Carlisle, ON and owner-breeder Bayama Farms Inc. of Saint-Andre-D'Argenteuil, QC. The Up The Credit son took three full seconds off his personal best with Thursday's effort. Another three-time Lampman Cup winner, Moffat, ON resident Jody Jamieson, also scored a Grassroots driving double at Mohawk on Thursday, guiding Continual Hanover to a win in the second division and Imsporty to victory in the fifth. Jamieson put Continual Hanover on the front just past the sharp :26.3 opening quarter put up by Filion and Azul Pool, but was immediately challenged by Baddestnbestest. Both Jamieson and Filion quickly circled out around the longshot leader, with Continual Hanover grabbing the rail by the :55.3 half. Azul Pool pressed hard through the 1:24.1 three-quarters, but Continual Hanover stayed game to secure the two length victory in 1:52.2. Tango Star sprinted home to be second, leaving Azul Pool to settle for third. "I really couldn't have driven Continual (Hanover) much worse in his first start of the year," admitted Jamieson. "I used him too many times and he still bailed me out with a great performance. I've always thought he is barely a notch lower than the Gold division." Jamieson steers Continual Hanover for owner-trainer Jack Darling of Cambridge, ON and piloted the colt to a Gold Series win and two Grassroots division wins last season. The Bettor's Delight son boosted his lifetime earnings to $117,400 with Thursday's win, his sixth in 13 lifetime starts. Staring from Post 1 with Imsporty in the fifth division, Jamieson settled the Sportswriter son on the rail early and waited until the final turn to take aim on the leaders. On top by just over three lengths at the three-quarter pole, Imsporty stayed game to the wire and earned his first Grassroots trophy with a 1:52.2 effort. Speedling and Daylight Rush completed the top three. "Imsporty is a super little guy," said Jamieson, who steers the gelding for his father, trainer Carl Jamieson of Rockwood, ON, and Thomas Kyron of Toronto. "He's always had lots of talent, but he just hasn't had a lot of luck. Hopefully this win tonight has ended that string of luck and started a new one." The other two Grassroots divisions went to New Talent and Piranha. Guelph, ON resident Paul MacDonell steered New Talent to his first OSS win for trainer Bob McIntosh of Windsor and his partners C S X Stables of Liberty Center, OH and Al McIntosh Holdings Inc. of Leamington, ON. The Mach Three son stopped the teletimer at 1:51.2, besting Derecho and Bad Gamer. Driver Trevor Henry of Arthur, ON used a come-from-behind strategy to guide Piranha to a 1:52 win for trainer Raymond Farmer and owner-breeder John Turigliatto of Temperance, MI. The Badlands Hanover son reeled in Red Dog Saloon and B Fast Eddie with a :26.3 final quarter. The three-year-old pacing colts and geldings will return to Mohawk Racetrack on July 1 for their second Grassroots start. Ontario Sires Stakes action continues at the Campbellville oval this week as the three-year-old pacing fillies kick off their Grassroots season on Friday, June 17. The fillies will be featured in Races 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10, with the first race going postward at 7:30 pm. Ontario Racing

The much anticipated harness racing match up between State Treasurer and Wiggle It Jiggleit developed around the final turn Saturday night at Mohawk Racetrack, but neither horse came away with a victory. Nickle Bag spoiled the Horse of the Year showdown with his 10th victory of the season in Saturday's seven-horse $34,000 Preferred. State Treasurer showed good early speed and cleared to the front ahead of Nickle Bag heading into the first turn. The 2015 Canadian Horse of the Year posted opening-fractions of :26.2 and :55. Wiggle It Jiggleit left alertly, but was quickly dropped into fourth by driver Montrell Teague. The 2015 U.S. Horse of the Year got his cue to charge first up heading into the final turn. State Treasurer and Wiggle It Jiggleit went toe-to-toe by the three-quarter pole in 1:22.4, but waiting patiently in behind the superstars was Nickle Bag and driver Trevor Henry. Wiggle It Jiggleit wrestled the lead away from State Treasurer and had a few lengths on Nickle Bag with an eighth of a mile to go, but the classy veteran tracked down the Teague stable star to win the Preferred by three-quarters of a length in 1:51.1. State Treasurer battled hard to finish third. A six-year-old gelded son of Rocknroll Hanover, Nickle Bag scored his eighth Preferred victory of the season Saturday. The Bill Robinson trainee has now won two of his last three starts to improve his overall 2016 record to 10 wins from 16 starts. Nickle Bag has earned $184,860 in 2016 for owners Linda and Harry Loyens. His latest Preferred victory gives him 29 career wins and pushes his career earnings over $640,000. Nickle Bag paid $14.90 to win. Nickle Bag Wiggle It Jiggleit's second-place finish was just his sixth loss in 33 career starts and trainer Clyde Francis admitted he was disappointed. "We thought he would race a little better than he did," said Francis. "He didn't look as good as he did when we trained him the other day. I hope there is not much to it." Francis indicated that Wiggle It Jiggleit never really found comfort during the course of Saturday's race and at moments appeared to be close to going off stride. "He's always had a little funny way of going, but he was worse tonight." Wiggle It Jiggleit's next start is just a week away in the Confederation Cup on Sunday, May 15 at Flamboro Downs. Francis has full confidence the 2015 U.S Horse of the Year will bounce back. "You just back up and regroup and try to find out what the problem is." Wiggle It Jiggleit last start at Mohawk before Saturday's contest was a second-place finish in last year's Pepsi North America Cup. Also on Saturday, War N Munn recorded the WEG Series hat-trick with a huge performance in The Diplomat final. A field of nine three-year-old pacing colts and geldings battled in the $57,600 Diplomat final and it was action packed from start to finish. Dreamfair Mesa fired out from the middle of the gate to grab command and post a hot opening-quarter of :25.3. Several rivals began to charge up on the outside in the second-quarter, including the 1/5 favourite Gerries Sport. Dreamfair Mesa surrendered the lead to Worthy Art moments after posting a half-mile time of :54.3. Gerries Sport and Sylvain Filion were left first-over, while War N Munn, who had yet to see the pylons after leaving from post-nine, sat second-over. Gerries Sport took a narrow lead at the three-quarter pole in 1:22. The heavy-favourite tried to seal the deal in the stretch, but War N Munn and driver Jonathan Drury fired off cover and grabbed the lead midway down the lane. War N Munn finished the job in a career-best 1:50.2 for a two-length victory over Shocking Image and Worthy Art. Gerries Sport dropped back to finish fourth. Trained by Carmen Auciello, War N Munn turned in a massive parked-out effort for his sixth win in 10 starts this season. The three-year-old son of Stonebridge Regal has now scored victories in The Count B, Youthful and The Diplomat Series finals this season. "He shows up every night," said Auciello following the victory. "I knew tonight was going to be tough with the nine-hole, but J.D. (Jonathan Drury) couldn't have done a better job at working out a trip." War N Munn pushed his seasonal earnings over the $100,000 mark with the victory for owner George Munniksma. The sophomore pacer now has career totals of eight victories and earnings exceeding $148,000. War N Munn paid $11.50 to win. War N Munn Pacing fillies and mares also shared the spotlight on Saturday night. Chris Matthews trainee Lay Lady Lay went gate-to-wire to win the $57,400 Princess Series final for three-year-old fillies in 1:54. Doug McNair guided the daughter of Up The Credit to her first win in three starts this season. Lay Lady Lay is owned by 1posse2steves3brothersstb of Guelph, Ontario. She paid $5.60 to win. Lay Lady Lay Waasmula posted the fastest mile of the night in the $30,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred. The Bruce Goit trainee stopped the clock in 1:49.3 for her fifth win of the season. Driven by Trevor Henry, Wassmula has now recorded victories in three of her last four starts. She has banked $88,240 this season for owner Brent Vincent. Waasmula Henry finished the night with four driving victories. Live racing resumes Monday night at Mohawk Racetrack. Post time is 7:30 p.m. Mark McKelvie

TORONTO, November 2 - Ontario sired two-year-old fillies were the main attraction Monday night at Woodbine Racetrack for the opening leg of the harness racing Autumn Series. A field of eight trotting fillies competed in a single split, while 18 fillies were separated into a pair of divisions on the pacing side. All three divisions competed for a purse of $16,000. In the trotting division, Haileysgonedancing lived up to her 3/5 hype to win in 1:58.4. Driven by Jack Moiseyev, Haileysgonedancing got away second and quickly circled to the lead in the second-quarter. After fractions of :59.1 and 1:29.4, the heavy favourite trotted home in :29 to score the victory by a length and a half over Treasure Gifts K. T C Sno Massive finished third, while Jagersro got through late for fourth. A daughter of Manofmanymissions, Haileysgonedancing now sports a record of two wins from six starts in her rookie season for trainer Tony O'Sullivan. The trotting filly is owned by O'Sullivan, Kirk McKinnon, Lorne Keller and Rick Zeron Stables. Haileysgonedancing increased her earnings to $17,190 with the win and paid $3.40. Haileysgonedancing In the first pacing division, Lay Lady Lay survived the first over journey to win at 4/5 in 1:54.1. Boozer Bruiser and Trevor Henry sprinted out to the lead and set a solid early tempo of :27.3 and :56.3. Lay Lady Lady and Chris Christoforou got away in fourth and came to the outside to challenge first up in the third-quarter. Boozer Bruiser took the field by the three-quarter pole in 1:25.4, but would quickly surrendered the lead in the stretch to Lay Lady Lady. The 4/5 favourite paced home comfortably to win by a length and a quarter. The clocking of 1:54.1 established a new mark for Lay Lady Lay. Specialcelebration, who got a two-hole trip, finished second just ahead of Active Lady, while Boozer Bruiser finished fourth. A daughter of Up The Credit, Lay Lady Lay recorded her second win in five starts Monday night for trainer Chris Matthews. She is owned by 1posse2steves3brothersstb of Guelph and now has $18,500 banked. Lay Lady Lay paid $3.60 to win. Lay Lady Lay Noone To Depend On kept the favourites perfect on the evening in the second pacing filly division. Driven by Jody Jamieson, Noone To Depend On was able to get away in third, while post nine starter Lady Marina sprinted to the lead and by the opening-quarter in :26. Lady Marina and Jack Moiseyev were able to slow things down in the middle-half with fractions of :56.3 and 1:26.2. Noone To Depend On stayed in around the final turn, but Jamieson was able to find room at the top of the lane to bring his filly off the rail. The 9/5 favourite charged up on the outside to surge by Lady Marina and win by a length and a half in 1:55.2. Icthelight Hanover finished third, while Barbaras Shadow was fourth. A daughter of Santanna Blue Chip, Noone To Depend On is trained by Carl Jamieson, who co-owns with Brandy Jamieson. The rookie pacing filly now has two wins in 15 starts and earnings of $38,610. Noone To Depend On returned $5.80 to win. Noone To Depend In order to be eligible to the Autumn Series, the Ontario sired fillies had to be non-winners of $30,000 lifetime as of September 30, 2015. The second leg of the Autumn Series for the two-year-old fillies will take place next Monday (November 9). Autumn Series action continues Thursday night with round one action for the two-year-old colts and geldings. Mark McKelvie

There is nothing the harness racing community loves more each year than the emergence of the two year olds at qualifiers throughout North America. New sires get the chance to stake their claim and everybody is looking for that special two year old. Today at Mohawk there were fifteen qualifying races for the babies and one colt announced himself to the world with a stunning display in his qualifying heat. Matchplay Hanover led from barrier eight with ease and set a steady but not spectacular tempo in front. However when he was let down at the quarter pole, he dashed home in a sizzling 25.3 to stop the timer at 1:56.3 Trained by Carmen Auciello, Matchplay Hanover is a son of champion sire Bettor's Delight from the Western Ideal mare, Marena who is a daughter of the former outstanding two year old filly Mybrowneyedgirl 2 1:53 ($476,132). Purchased out of last years Harrisburg Sale for a paltry $22,000, Matchplay Hanover looks to have that raw speed that separates the top horses from the pack. Several new season sires had stock in today's qualifiers headed by Up The Credit. The son of Western Terror who went 1:48.3 and earned $1,331,623 on the track has a first crop of just 38 foals but has already had five qualifiers including todays winner Warrawee Rocket from the seven hole in 1:59.1 with the last quarter in 28.2 The former brilliant two year old Big Jim 2 1:49.2 ($1,544,580) has his first crop of 74 two year olds hitting the track this season and he had three qualifiers today so he is off to a handy start. The Real Artist stallion Southwind Lynx 1:48.3 ($1,763,830) has just two horses on the ground this season but had a smart qualifier today in Western Lynx who stopped the clock in 1:58 with the last quarter in 27.1 Read the full results here.

The game of musical chairs involving stallions moving from one state or country to another for the 2015 season is just about over. And the same goes for stud fee adjustments. Here’s a rundown of what has transpired thus far. It was just announced that fourteen-year-old Western Terror, a grandson of Delinquent Account and full brother to BC and Messenger winner If I Can Dream, will relocate within Pennsylvania at a reduced rate. He moves to Nandi Farms and will command a $5,500 stud fee, $2,000 less than last year. More Western Terror offspring were sold in Lexington than from any other stallion, but more isn’t always better. The 41 yearling consignment brought an average a shade over $15,000. Lots of red ink there. Tomy Terror (sic), Hall Of Terror and Do Your Job were his best young offspring in 2014. Up The Credit, the richest son of gyno-centric Western Terror, will take another shot at the stallion game in 2015. The seven-year-old NA Cup winner, who mined the low to middle NW class at Mohawk until mid-summer, first stood at Seelster Farms in Ontario for $5,000 in 2012. It wasn’t long before he was back racing. He’ll now be offered for $3,000 at Casimir Farm in Ontario. Six-year-old Heston Blue Chip, 2012 Dan Patch winner, and five-year-old Sunfire Blue Chip will be the first high profile sons of American Ideal to embark on stallion careers. Neither one of them lived up to their colt promise in the aged ranks; Heston won four races and earned $216,000 in 2014, while Sunfire won five and banked $168,000. Heston will stand for $4,500 at Winbak, New York and Sunfire will get $4,000 (Cdn.) at Tara Hills. Twenty-year-old Dragon Again, who now resides in Ohio, has a penchant for producing hard hitting pacers that last a long time, but he has no record as a sire of sires. His son Aracache, who ground out $1.7 million in six years of racing, will stand at Ivy Lane Farm in Indiana for $2,500. Seventeen-year-old Real Desire, the sire of Tell All and State Treasurer, will also stand at Ivy Lane in 2015. He moves from Midland Acres, where he sported a $5,000 fee. He now stands for $3,500. Lots of fee reductions for lower end stallions this year. The Well Said four-year-old Tellitlikeitis, who didn’t earn enough to be covered by Gural’s stallion rule, will also stand in Indiana, at Victory Hill Farm for $3,000. So, Indiana, which hit the lottery with Always A Virgin and Rockin Image, doesn’t get a whole lot in the way of reinforcements. The latter two stallions remained at $4,000 and $3,500, respectively. Ohio, which was already bursting at the seams, found room for a few more. The casinos in the Buckeye state are the best job plan in NA for Standardbreds. Uncle Peter, a son of Cantab Hall, will be the most expensive trotting stallion in the state at $6,000. Fifteen-year-old Broadway Hall, still one more expatriate from Pennsylvania, will stand at Midland Acres for $5,000. That’s a third less than he was getting last year. And 2015 BC winner Rockin Amadeus will stand at Cool Winds Farm in Ohio for $3,500. Western Vintage, who only won once at three after showing much promise during his freshman campaign, will stand at Abby Stables in Ohio for $3,500. Mister Big, who failed to impress in Ontario, will also be at Abby. He stood for $4.500 at Tara Hills in Ontario last year, but will only get $2,500 in 2015. Jurgen Hanover, the Credit Winner five-year-old who looked like a budding star early in his sophomore season, also goes to Abby, for $2,500. What’s their motto, “Give us your wretched castoffs”?  Along the same lines, Hypnotic Blue Chip, who was retired to Fashion Farms at a $5,000 fee in 2012 and drew little interest, is back for another try. The nine-year-old son of Art Major will stand in Indiana for $2,500.  Wishing Stone leaves Deo Volente in New Jersey, where he stood for $5,000, for Sugar Valley Farm in Ohio, where he’ll get $4,500. Trixton will take his place in New Jersey for a $12,000 fee. And of course Father Patrick will serve a one year residency at Walnridge Farm in New Jersey, at a hefty $30,000 per. Archangel, who stood in New York for $4,000 in 2013, but drew so little interest that he returned to the track this past year, makes another run as a stallion at Winbak Canada for $4,500 (Cdn.). Betterthancheddar also relocates to Winbak Canada from New York. As is the case with just about all of the repositioned stallions, his fee takes a 22% hit, dropping from $4,500 to $3,500. Sportswriter made a splash in the Ontario Sire Stakes and saw his fee jump 38% to $6,500 (Cdn.) Kadabra’s fee has been cut 20% to $12,000 (US). E L Titan will stand for $8,000 and race as well. Ten-year-old Crazed returns to New York from Pennsylvania. He stood for $6,000 at Hanover in 2013, $4,000 in 2014 and is back up to $5,000 at Blue Chip in 2015. Gural Hanover and Crazy Wow were very good in the NYSS last year and Tirade Hanover is racing very well right now. Lucky Chucky, who didn’t overwhelm us with his first crop, had his fee reduced 20% to $6,000 for 2015. Chapter Seven, whose first crop sells this year, had his fee dropped a thousand dollars to $7,500 for 2015. Twenty-year-old Artiscape drops 20% to $4,000. The high priced stuff goes to Pennsylvania, where Captaintreacherous and Sweet Lou both have full books--$15,000 for The Captain and half that much for Lou. One bright spot in Pennsylvania is Muscle Massive jumping 20% to $7,500 off first crop performances by Gatka Hanover and Speak To Me. Twenty-one-year-old Yankee Glide, who has struggled of late, had his fee dropped from $12,500 to $10,000. Still, $15,000 is lower than folks expected The Captain to slot in at prior to his unsuccessful four-year-old campaign. Modest increases for Sportswriter, Muscle Massive and Crazed don’t a positive trend make. Father Patrick will get $30,000, but that’s for an abbreviated book and many of those bookings are for syndicate members. Somebeachsomewhere had his fee dropped $5,000 to $25,000 and his book is still open. Muscle Hill’s fee is unpublished. Maybe he went up. Overall, the trend is not positive. by Joe FitzGerald for http://viewfromthegrandstand.blogspot.com/

It was a show that fans at Red Shores Charlottetown won't soon forget.   Jody Jamieson started early and he finished late, winning five races and four of the eight legs of the National Driving Championship, good enough for 96 points and his fifth berth in the World Driving Championships.   "It feel's actually amazing, I'm super pumped about it," Jamieson said about getting to represent his country one more time.   The two-time World Driving Champion got the ball rolling early in the competition winning the first two heats with C J Bluefin in 1:58.2 and followed that up in the second heat with Oppies Lifes Line.   "I don't like to say anything bad about a guys horse but, No one wanted to drive C J Bluefin, I talked to the owners nephew and he told me what he liked about him. With that knowledge going forward, it just worked out and the horse stepped up for me."   Jamieson followed that up with a second, third and second before rhyming off another victory aboard Solanos Dragon in Race 8. With two races to go and him and Islander Marc Campbell in a dog fight, Campbell picked up the win in Race 9 while Jamieson finished second.   Heading into the final leg Jamieson was on top by 10 points with 81 to Campbell's 71. When the horses crossed the wire in the final heat, it was over. Jamieson was a going away winner aboard Perfect Escape in 1:55.4 for owner Jack Kennan and trainer Jackie Matheson.   "I didn't even know what to say," Jamieson said about going under the wire and knowing he was going to represent Canada one more time. "I was just thinking about how long I'm going to stay in Australia and who's coming with me."   Jamieson treated a packed house to a special tribute as he paraded Perfect Escape in front of the fans at the fence.   "I like to show the fans the winning horse. I think people appreciate almost being able to touch a horse," said Mr. Canada. "I'm always trying to build a fan base and it starts from one person and builds from there."   Jamieson said he didn't expect to win five races coming into the card, but things worked out.   "I was just trying to do the right thing in every race, trying to navigate through some horses and hope I had some stock down by the wire, and that's what happened."   The Moffat, Ont native picked up his fifth victory in the evening finale, the$ 5, 000 Builders Cup aboard Modern Xhibit.   Marc Campbell finished second with 81 points. Brandon Campbell was third with 42. Billy Davis Jr. ( 39 ), Ryan Ellis ( 33 ), Guy Gagnon ( 32 ), Jim Marino ( 31 ) and Sylvain Lacaille ( 19 ) rounded out the competition.   The hometown hero Campbell didn't disappoint winning three races of the NDC himself. He rounded out his night with a grand slam winning the $ 25, 000 Founders Cup aboard Wazzup Wazzup in 1:53. Up The Credit cut out all the numbers of :27.3, :56.2, 1:24.4 before Maritime hopeful D Gs Camme cleared to the lead. Wazzup Wazzup made a final lunge at the wire to win in 1:53 for his owners the Rolling Hills Racing Stables and trainer Corey Johnson. D Gs Camme finished second and All Turain was third.   The fans were also taken by storm in Race 7, the $3, 000 claimer Whitesand Artist fired off a new track record for aged pacing mares winning by 16 lengths in 1:53.4 for Billy Davis Jr. and owner -trainer Neil Bambrick. The nine-year-old daughter of Artiscape who knocked three seconds off of her lifetime mark erased a 20 year-old track record taken in 1994 by Gold Cup and Saucer winner Little Black Book.   The total handle on the program was $55,151. As for Jamieson when he was asked when he would be back to P.E.I.   "I want to win the Gold Cup and Saucer so bad, It's a real tough race to win. Just ask Marc Campbell he thought he was going to win his second this year but it didn't work out for him. He's lucky enough he's got one," laughed Jamieson. "It's the race I want to win."   by Bo Ford, for Red Shores  

The question of who will wear the red and white of Canada at the 2015 World Driving Championship will be answered Tuesday night at Red Shores Charlottetown. Eight of the best drivers from their respective regions will gather in Charlottetown to contest the National Driving Championships presented by Standardbred Canada, P.E.I Harness Racing Industry Association, P.E.I. 2014 Inc. and Red Shores. Post-time for the special 12-dash card is 7 p.m. The competition to see who can fulfill the dream of representing their country will get underway in Race 3. This year's NDC is a little different than previous, this year Standardbred Canada held a draft to allow the drivers to pick the horses they wanted to drive. Two-time World Driving Champion Jody Jamieson has selected to drive the rail horse C J Bluefin, a favourite heading into the National Driving Championship, Jamieson will have to fend off seven other foes. Sylvain Lacaille took his first round selection in Race 3, selecting the two-entry Caughfoolinaround for owner Maggie Mccarthy and trainer Roy Reynolds. Quebec native Guy Gagnon had the first overall selection and took Umiztagoodthing in Race 10 from Post 5. Todd Walsh trains the five-year-old Modern Art gelding who took a lifetime best in his last race of 1:56.4. The Alberta representative, and son of former Island horseman Sanford Campbell, had the second selection in the draft. Brandon Campbell chose post 2 starter in Race 5 All Out. With two second place finishes in his last two starts, the Clarkie Smith trainee is listed as the morning line favourite. B.C. native and the second representative from the Western Region, Jim Marino had the seventh overall pick he landed the 5-2 favourite Playful Patty in Race 4. Owned by Taylor Mcguigan the newcomer to Charlottetown will look to make her mark on Tuesday night. The third overall selection went to 'The Rocketman' Billy Davis Jr. Making his first trip to P.E.I., the second entrant from Ontario will look to keep the NDC crown in Ontario, the place it has been for the past three events. Davis selected Ton Of Luck for the Ultimate Stables. Leaving from Post 5 in the sixth race, the three-year-old daughter of Camluck finished third in her last start pacing in 1:57.4. The 'Flying Pilot' Ryan Ellis had the fourth overall selection and drafted Mcdaisy Cutter for owners John and Stephen Quinn of Charlottetown. The daughter of McArdle has a no-worst-than second record in her last four starts. The hometown pride, Marc Campbell was saddled with the eighth overall pick, and if that wasn't bad enough, his first pick in the draft also won't line up behind the starting gate. Campbell selected Panacotta from Post 1 in Race 8 but he made a break on Saturday, and after a questionable review it was deemed Panacotta had broken equipment after his break and not before, putting him on the qualifying list. So instead 'King Campbell' will look towards the ninth overall selection in the draft, Rash B Havior. The four-year-old Lis Mara gelding played a contributing factor in gaining Campbell the victory in the Altantic Regional Driving Championship. The pair went right down the highway in the Championship winning in 1:56.4, a new lifetime mark. The Champion will be decided during eight of the 12 races on the card. The event concludes in Race 10. The special Tuesday card will also feature the $ 25, 000 Founders Cup and the $5,000 Builders Cup. Wazzup Wazzup has drawn into Post 6 for trainer Corey Johnson.

Only beaten a neck, pacing his own mile in track record time, 1:50.4, in the 55th running of The Sobeys Gold Cup and Saucer, Wazzup Wazzup is the morning line favourite. He picked up a lifetime mark of 1:49 just three starts ago before landing on P.E.I. for the Gold Cup and Saucer trial. Millionaire pacer Up The Credit, winner of the James 'Roach' MacGregor memorial on Friday night of Old Home Week will look to knock off the runner-up in the Gold Cup and Saucer. A winner of over $ 1.3 million in career earning, the six-year-old Western Terror horse has drawn into Post 3 for trainer and co-owner Carl Jamieson along with Tomas Kyron and Joanne Morrison. Jody Jamieson will do the driving. The trio of Jody, Carl and Up The Credit have been a dynamic one in the past winning the $1.5 million dollar North American Cup in 2011. A winner of this year's Governors Plate in track record fashion of 1:53 at Red Shores Summerside, D Gs Camme moves into Post 4, fresh off of a 1:52.2 victory on Gold Cup night in the final of the Premier's Pace.

It's not very often that entrants in the Gold Cup and Saucer stick around P.E.I. after the race is over, but when the Founders Cup carrying a purse of $25,000 is only 10 days later, why not stick around. That was the mindset of the connections for the runner-up in the 55th running of the Sobey's Gold Cup and Saucer. Wazzup Wazzup was only beat a neck, pacing his own mile in track record time, 1:50.4, in the final and he will be back Tuesday night looking to get the red soil monkey off of his back.
