Mohawk Racetrack's morning qualifying sessions have been buzzing with activity as the seven-eighths mile oval hosted two sets of 11-race qualifying sessions for two-year-olds over the last two days.

Trotters took to the track to kick off the weekend. Fastest of the Friday morning performers was Dunbar Hall for trainer-driver Carl Jamieson, a gate-to-wire winner in 1:58.2. Jamieson co-owns the Deweycheatumnhowe-Debbie Hall colt -- a $22,000 yearling and full brother to former Jamieson stable standout Danielle Hall -- with Tom Kyron and George Harrison.

Among the fillies, Winter Sweet Frost (Kadabra-American Frost) was fastest among the distaff winners. A homebred owned by Bob Key and trained by Paul Reid, Winter Sweet Frost and driver Doug McNair also employed on-the-engine tactics to trip the timer first in a time of 2:04.3.

Saturday morning's session was pacing-powered, and one trainer's stock captured the majority of the dashes. Casie Coleman trainees were victorious in seven of the 11 baby races on Saturday morning. The speediest of the group was Candelight Dinner, a filly from American Ideal - Time N Again filly that set owner Mac Nichol back $110,000 in Lexington last fall. After a 1:55.3 outing last Friday, she and driver Jonathan Drury lowered that speed badge to 1:54.4.

The quickest colt of the morning also hailed from those same connections -- sire American Ideal, owner Nichol, trainer Coleman and driver Drury. Ideal Wheel, a $150,000 Harrisburg purchase, was three-quarters of a length the best in 1:56.1 after falling three-parts of a length short in his debut last week.
