Jacques Dupont trainee Dream Nation maintained his unbeaten record when trotting the fastest mile of the three $67,200 Ontario Sires Stakes (OSS) Gold Divisions on the Sunday, July 29 program at Georgian Downs, equalling the track record.

Driver Louis-Philippe Roy positioned Dream Nation third while Isnt He An Angel trotted the first quarter in :29.1. Roy then brushed to the top with the odds-on favourite before the half, timed in :59, and opened a five-length lead heading to three-quarters while Tymal Tullo circled around chasers in second through the 1:27.4 marker. The Archangel gelding coasted to the wire three-and-a-half lengths in front of Southwind Avenger soaring from off the pace in second while Tymal Tullo held third.

Montevideo led the field through a :29.3 opening quarter as Zig Zag attempted to take the front, but broke wide of the leader moving to the stretch. Continuing on top through a 1:00.1 half, Montevideo lost the lead and faded at the rail while pocket-sitter and favourite Tymal Houdini moved to the top. Allthefixins pressured the new leader from first over while Jumpshot sat second over by three-quarters in 1:29. He tipped wide into the stretch and nailed Tymal Houdini by a neck at the wire with Allthefixins another quarter length back in third.

Ct Conabra won the third OSS split by six-and-three-quarter lengths going wire to wire in 1:57.4. The Carl Jamieson owned and trained son of Kadabra parked Screaming Hawk through a :29 first quarter, forcing him to tuck into the pocket.
