On Tuesday morning (Aug. 20), Woodbine Mohawk Park played host to a nine-dash qualifying session, which featured a trio of two-year-old races and also saw juveniles sprinkled throughout two other tilts.

The first of the two-year-old dashes faced the gate for Race 1, and it was the John Bax-trained and Matt Bax-driven colt Beads (Archangel—Nepentha) that trotted to a gate-to-wire win (:29.1, :58.4, 1:28.4) and nailed the wire in 1:59.1. The margin of victory was six lengths for owner Renee Spahr (of East Prospect, PA).

Race 2 saw freshman No Lou Zing (Sweet Lou—Terroronthebeach), who was a $145,000 yearling purchase in Harrisburg last fall, come from off the pace to win in 1:57.1 for trainer Nancy Johansson and driver Josert Fonseca. The bay colt had started from Post 5 and sat fourth through the opening quarter (:30) and half (:59.4). Lou Zing then came first up on the turn before the 1:29.2 third call. He wrapped up his mile with a :27.4 closing quarter and got up for a one and three-quarter-length win. Lou Zing is owned by the 3 Brothers Stables (New York, NY), Rojan Stables (Wilmington, DE) and Caviart Farms (Vienna, VA).

Another six-figure yearling purchase recorded a victory during the session, as freshman Durhamville (Cantab Hall—Define Royalty) won Race 5 with a 1:58.1, wire-to-wire performance from Post 4. The Domenico Cecere trainee was in rein to Patrizio Ancora and the duo cut the fractions in :28.1, :58.4 and 1:28.2. Durhamville trotted home with a :29.4 final panel and posted a whopping 14-length margin of victory. Lindy Farms Of Conn (Enfield, CT) and Robert Rudolph (Vineland, NJ) share ownership of the bay colt that was a $110,000 buy at the 2018 Lexington Selected sale.

The last of the morning’s juvenile performers took to the track for Race 6, and it was the Harry Poulton-trained and Anthony MacDonald-driven Beach Boutique (Somebeachsomewhere—Dashboard Dancer) that nailed the wire first. The bay filly recorded a wire-to-wire win from Post 3. She cut the speed in :30, :59.2 and 1:28.2 before cruising home in :29.3. The margin of victory was one and three-quarter lengths for Beach Boutique, who is owned by Thestable Beach Boutique (Guelph, Ont.).
