Bee A Magician became the fastest three-year-old trotting filly in the history of the Ontario Sires Stakes program thanks to her jaw-dropping performance of 1:52.2 in the first of two Gold Series divisions Monday evening at Mohawk Racetrack.

With Rick Zeron at the lines, Bee A Magician rallied for a two-length tally over Angies Lucky Star after that filly whacked out middle splits of :56.1 and 1:24.3 in the record-setting performance. Motown Muscle was third.

The 1:52.2 victory was two-fifth’s of a second faster than the previous OSS record of 1:52.4 which was established by Cross Of Larraine in 2010 at Mohawk Racetrack. The 1:52.2 effort was just one-fifth of a second shy of matching Check Me Out’s track and Canadian record of 1:52.1.

Richard ‘Nifty’ Norman trains Bee A Magician for Mel Hartmann, Herb Liverman and David Mc Duffee. The daughter of Kadabra-Beehive now boasts a 5-for-5 record this season after going 10-for-13 last year. The O’Brien Award winner has banked $1,140,653 to date.

In the other $105,000 Gold Series division, Anaffairtoremember tracked cover and rallied to a career-best clocking of 1:54.1 in what was her first start of the year with trotting hopples. Jack Moiseyev swept to the front in the late stages of the mile after Brenway Dixie supplied the group with fractions of :27.3, :57 and 1:25.1. Anaffairtoremember’s final quarter of :28.2 helped her win by 2-3/4 lengths over Choir Robe, with Brenway Dixie fading to finish third.

Sent off at odds of 4-1, Anaffairtoremember won for the second time in just four career attempts for trainer Marie Dupont. The daughter of Angus Hall-Val Lee Woman has stashed away more than $60,000 in her career for the M T Pockets Stables of Pompano Beach, FL and Claude Brault of Peterborough, ON.

Monday’s card also featured a trio of OSS Gold Series divisions – each worth $70,000 – for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings.

Twin B Famous turned in a pylon-skimming shocker in the first division for the tandem of driver Jody Jamieson and trainer Herb Holland. The colt had a ground-saving trip throughout the mile, which was carved out by race favourite Windsong Jack. He tore through fractions of :27.1, :54.4 and 1:22.1 before drifting out badly and opening the rail for Twin B Famous. He used a :27.1 closing quarter to win by a half-length margin over Windsong Jack, with Regal Hope a lapped-on third in the 1:50.4 affair.

Sent off at odds of 34-1, the son of Jeremes Jet-What An Attitude won for the third time in 12 starts this season after going 0-for-5 in last year’s rookie campaign. Stephen Chartrand of Hampton, ON owns the career winner of $67,620.

Roar made his debut for trainer Casie Coleman a winning one when he paced the mile in a career-best clocking of 1:49.4. Classic Gent and Validus Deo took turns on the lead through intervals of :26, :54 and 1:21.2, but it was Roar who went sailing past them all thanks to his closing speed of :27.1. He drew clear to win by a pair of lengths over Validus Deo, with race favourite Tarpon Hanover settling for third after doing the first-over work around the final turn.

Scott Zeron mapped out the winning trip for Roar, who is owned by the Enviro Stables Ltd of South Hampton, NY. The $35,000 payday lifted the bankroll of the son of Mach Three-Southern Magnolia to $75,225.

Mach It So gave Scott Zeron back-to-back stakes wins thanks to his 1:50.2 triumph in the final division. The son of Mach Three-Beach Dancer enjoyed a two-hole trip for the majority of the mile before popping off cover and scooting away to a three-length tally over Gallant Seelster. Race favourite Brocks Fortune, who led the field through middle splits of :56 and 1:23.3, was third best.

Bamond Racing LLC of Brick, NJ owns the gelding who now boasts a 2013 record of 3-1-0 from just five starts. He went 2-for-4 last year and potted more than $33,000 in earnings. He’s put away in excess of $62,000 this year, while his overall bankroll now stands at $96,000.

The new format for the Gold Series will feature two legs leading to a $150,000 Mid-Season Challenge for the top 10 point earners in the first two legs. A $50,000 Consolation will also be offered for the next 10 point earners.
Those events will be followed by another two legs leading up the $200,000 Super Finals in late September. The top 10 point earners throughout the season will be eligible for Super Finals.
