Two-year-old trotters were in the spotlight Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park as they did battle in round two of the Millard Farms Series and the Pure Ivory Series, but those youngsters weren’t the only ones making headlines.

Driver Jody Jamieson put on a clinic in the racebike thanks to the five-win performance he manufactured during the 11-race card.

Wins with Metallica (1:53.2), Angry Eyes (1:54.3), Saratoga Blue Chip (1:53.1), Mustang Beach (1:53.2) and Aneto (1:51) helped push Jamieson to 101 wins so far this season while racking up earnings of close to $2 million. The career winner of 8,111 races and purses in excess of $132 million currently sits fourth overall in the drivers’ standings at Woodbine Mohawk Park. His 93 wins at the oval is fourth best behind Doug McNair (119), Bob McClure (102) and Sylvain Filion (100).

Thursday’s card also treated fans to second round action of the Millard Farms Series, and Logan Park offered some back for the buck in his $20,000 assignment.

In rein to Louis Philippe Roy, Logan Park got away fifth and held that position through first half fractions of :28 and :57.4. Roy brushed his charge to the top on the way to the three-quarter pole - which flashed up in 1:27.1 – and then used a :28-second closing panel to win by a pair of lengths over Warrawee Whisper in 1:55.1. Black Tie Bash took home third prize in the eight-horse affair.

Logan Park, who was sent off at odds of 7-1, celebrated the maiden-breaking win for trainer Rob Fellows. Outofthepark Stable, Reg Higgs and Arpad Szabo share ownership on the son of Archangel-Rite Outa The Park.

The second leg of the Pure Ivory Series needed a set of divisions, and those splits went to Donna Soprano and Spruce Creek.

Donna Soprano got away third in her $20,000 tilt, but she brushed first-over on the way to the half before clearing to the position of command for driver Bob McClure. She opened up a two-length lead on the pocket-sitter at the three-quarter pole and then used a :27.4 final frame to win by 3-3/4 lengths over race favourite Rubys Are Nice in 1:57.2. Magic Beauty took home the show dough.

Luc Blais trains the daughter of Donato Hanover-Windsong Soprano for Determination of Montreal, QC. The filly was a $190,000 purchase from last year’s Harrisburg Yearling Sale.

The duo of driver Louis Philippe Roy and trainer Rob Fellows struck again thanks to a second division score with Spruce Creek in 1:58.1.

The daughter of Muscle Hill-Sahalee powered to the lead from Post 3 and had the field chasing her through first-half fractions of :29 and 1:00.3. Amazone Duharas charged to the lead as the field head into the final turn, and she marched the group to the three-quarter pole in 1:29.2. She got slopped-gaited in the lane, however, and jumped it off. That allowed Spruce Creek to rally to the win by three-quarters of a length over race favourite Ad Astra. Amazone Duharas had to settle for third prize in the $20,000 tilt.

Yolanda Fellows, Erna Corbeil and Edward Wilson share ownership on the youngster who was third in last week’s opening leg of the series.
