Riveting Rosie took over top spot in the two-year-old trotting filly standings with her third straight Gold Series victory on Thursday evening, touring the Rideau Carleton Raceway oval in 1:59.2.

Regular reinsman Paul MacDonell of Guelph piloted Riveting Rosie to the win for trainer John Bax of Peterborough and his partners Don Allensen of Wyoming, J and T Stable of Newmarket and John Hayes of Sharon. After finishing second in the July 5 Gold Series season opener at Mohawk Racetrack, the Muscle Mass daughter captured her division at Georgian Downs on July 23, and then swept to a 1:57.2 triumph in the Aug. 5 Mid-Summer Challenge at Mohawk. Thursday’s triumph puts her atop the division standings with 125 points.

Mayberry finished second in the Aug. 5 Mid-Summer Consolation, but the Kadabra daughter sprinted home to a neck victory in Thursday’s second $52,500 Gold Series division. In rein to trainer Rick Zeron of Oakville Mayberry clocked a 2:00.4 to record her first win in four starts. Zeron shares ownership of the filly with Fred Brayford of Alliston and James Walker of Port Perry.

Luck Is All Ineed also picked up her first lifetime victory by a narrow margin in the first division, crossing the wire a head on top in 2:00.1. Doug McNair engineered the win for his father, trainer Gregg McNair of Guelph, and Thomas Harmer of Willowbrook, IL.

The final division went to Nickange Two in 2:00.4, in a race that was marred by an accident. Fan favourite and former division leader Marcella Hall and trainer-driver Jimmy Takter fell going by the grandstand for the first time, but fortunately both were able to walk off the racetrack under their own steam. Nickange Two was driven to the win by Trevor Ritchie for trainer Wayne Lee and owner John Paul Stables Inc. of Princeton.

The two-year-old trotting fillies make their final regular season Gold Series start at Grand River Raceway on Sept. 20, while Rideau Carleton Raceway prepares to welcome the three-year-old pacing fillies for their fifth Grassroots event on Thursday, Aug. 29.
