An armada of sophomore trotting colts invaded Georgian Downs resulting in six $24,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots divisions as part of their Tuesday night card of harness racing.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was the defeat of Agusto, his first loss in the Grassroots series. Berndt Energy was able to capitalize on that miscue and - despite racing with broken equipment - tally a 1:58 score for driver Brad Forward and trainer Bob McIntosh, who co-owns with C S X Stables of Liberty Center, Ohio.

Forward & McIntosh captured another division with Peter Pan Stables' Panz Kafka, whose 1:57.1 score was co-fastest of the night along with Lukas Rossi, who was driven by Randy Fritz for trainer-owner Ron O'Neill, P C Wellwood Enterprises Inc of Cambridge and Nancy Stephens of Woodstock, Ont.

The three-year-old colt trotters have only one race left on the schedule before the Semi-Finals, October 8 at Flamboro Downs. To view the divisional leaderboard, click here.

Other Grassroot winners from Tuesday night were:

Driftwood - 1:57.3

Owners - Jerry Duford and Joanne Wray of Campbellville, Lloyd & Barbara Tylee of Grimsby, Ont.

Make A Promise - 1:57.3

Owners - Rob Fellows, Allison Jay and Philippe Leclerc of Rockwood, John Yanevski of Whitby, Ont.

J Cs Magic Man - 1:58.2

The Grassrootwin was one of five on the night for Jody Jamieson, who once again sits atop the North American driver standings with 554 wins, two more than Jason Bartlett.

In other racing action, Mystical Ryan was an easy gate-to-wire in the $15,000 Horse & Gelding Preferred Trot, disposing of six foes and hitting the wire in a season's best 1:54.2 for les freres Baillargeon, Mario & Ben, and owner Frank Cirillo of Kleinburg, Ont.
