Fans at Sudbury Downs were treated to a rare afternoon card on Sunday, and it was a program that featured a quartet of $24,000 O.S.S. Grassroots divisions for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings

Tymal Recap celebrated a maiden-breaking win in the opening split for driver Trevor Henry and trainer Wayne Henry. The son of Ken Warkentin-Lukes Elvira enjoyed a ground-saving journey for most of the mile before slipping to the lead in the late stages of the contest and drawing off to win by 2-3/4 lengths in 2:05.1. The Odessa Man was second best behind the 10-1 upsetter, while Touch Him Up finished a distant third.

Henry Stable of Arthur and Dan McCann of Parkhill, ON share ownership on the gelding, who was purchased for $18,000 from last year’s Forest City Yearling Sale. The trotters has a number of stakes-winning siblings including the likes of Tymal Timeout (1:58.2 - $356,252), Lookit (1:59.3 - $187,033) and Tymal Mystique (1:59.2 - $103,210).

P C La Mousse was the fastest O.S.S. winner on the card thanks to his 2:04.4 score in the second division. The homebred son of Mr Lavec-Balladeer took over at the quarter pole for driver Ross Battin and never looked back en route to the two-length triumph over Talbot Zack Attak. Reelie, who made a late miscue, managed to hold on for a third-place finish.

Peter Clements bred, owns and trains the gelding, who now owns a 1-0-1 record in his first two appearances.

Chuckalo Caden survived a first-over journey to take home the hardware in the third division for Chuck Thompson, who bred, owns, trains and drove the son of Mr Lavec to the 2:06.4 victory. The colt prevailed by a one-length margin over Mr Joe Sixpack. Tamarind took home the show dough.

The colt is the first foal out of Chuckalo Beckster, who was an O.S.S. winner in her rookie and sophomore campaigns.

Sheikh Mo went wire-to-wire in the final division for the tandem of driver Doug McNair and trainer Bob McIntosh. The son of Duke Of York supplied splits of :31, 1:04 and 1:36 before kicking home in :30.4 to win by a half-length margin over Easy Els in 2:06.4. Full Force rounded out the top three finishers.

It was the second lifetime score in just three tries for the youngster, who races for owner/breeder Dr. Moira Gunn of Caledon East, ON. Sheikh Mo is the first living foal out of Armbro Trish – an unraced half-sister to Armbro Fling (1:55.3 - $1,334,936).
