Two-year-old trotters were out in full force Friday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park, as the oval hosted a trio of rich OSS Gold Series divisions for the freshman fillies with the diagonal gait.

Sheer Energy was a front-stepping winner in her $73,067 division for the tandem of driver Louis Philippe Roy and trainer George Ducharme.

From Post 6, the daughter of Muscle Mass-Armbro Vanquish crossed over in front of the field with relative ease and had her foes chasing her through fractions of :28, :58.3 and 1:29 before sprinting home in :29.1 to win by 3-1/4 lengths in 1:58.1. Modern Mass was next best, with Th Present taking home the show dough.

Sent off as the 2-5 choice in the seven-filly affair, Sheer Energy won for the second time in three tries for owner W J Donovan of Delray Beach, FL. The payday – her biggest to date – bumped her lifetime earnings to $44,034. She was purchased for $187,000 from last year’s Harrisburg Yearling Sale.

Winter Olympics was a popular winner in her $73,067 assignment for catch-driver Sylvain Filion and trainer Ake Svanstedt.

Filion got away third with the daughter of Muscle Mass-Olympic Dreams while Jula Shes Magic sprinted to the lead and supplied the field with an opening quarter clocked in :29.1. Filion teed off in the backstretch with Winter Olympics, and she had no problem securing the lead. She went on to post middle panels of :58.3 and 1:27.4 before using a :28.4 final frame to win by three-quarters of a length over She Rocks Kemp in 1:56.3. Jula Shes Magic was third.

Ake Svanstedt Inc of Wrightstown, NJ owns the speedy lass who owns a 1-1-0 record from just two outings. The lion’s share of the loot pushed her lifetime earnings to $39784.

All eyes were on the undefeated Warrawee Vicky in the third division, but Intense Justice stole her thunder when she rallied past the big favourite in deep stretch.

Chris Christoforou got away third with Intense Justice while Warrawee Vicky motored to the lead from Post 5. She rolled the field through fractions of :28.3, :58.4 and 1:27.3 before being confronted in the lane by Intense Justice. Filion called on Warrawee Vicky late, but she gave way to Intense Justice who used a :29-second closing quarter to win by 1-3/4 lengths over Warrawee Vicky in 1:56.4. Wine Rack Hanover was third.

Dany Fontaine trains the homebred daughter of Justice Hall-Intense America for Ecurie Gaetan Bono Inc of Montreal, QC. The win was her third of the season and it improved her record to 3-2-0 from five attempts. The lion’s share of the $73,866 purse boosted her bankroll to $103,182.
