A nine-pack of races took to the track Tuesday morning (Sept. 24) at Woodbine Mohawk Park for the weekly qualifying session at the Campbellville, Ont. oval.

A trio of dashes for two-year-olds were the attraction of the session, which was contested over a ‘fast’ track and saw horses battle a decent headwind in the stretch

It was all Libspeak (Artspeak—Docdor Libby) in the last of the morning’s two-year-old qualifiers (Race 4). The bay filly went first up after the :31 quarter, cut the middle fractions (:59.4, 1:27.4) and was under wraps in the lane before nailing the wire in 1:57.3. She is trained by Tony Alagna and was driven by Doug McNair during the morning mile. The $17,000 Harrisburg yearling purchase is owned by Alagna Racing LLC and Donna Lee (both of Manalapan, NJ, M T Pockets Stables (Pompano Beach, FL) and Victoria Howard (Boca Raton, FL).

The first of the two-year-old dashes (Race 2) saw the Jack Darling-trained and Jody Jamieson-driven Beaumond Hanover (Sportswriter—Bittorsweet Terror) lower his qualifying mark to 1:56.4 with a wire-to-wire win. The bay colt made the front just after the :30.2 quarter pole, cut the middle splits in :59 and 1:28.3 and held off the first-over Tint Of Mint at the line for a half-length win. The $45,000 Harrisburg purchase is owned by Jack Darling Stables Ltd, of Cambridge, Ont.

After having a taken a pocket ride through the fractions, the Julie Walker-trained and Sylvain Filion-driven LMC Bumble Bee (Muscle Mass—Hornby Gem) prevailed in the second of the morning’s two-year-old contests (Race 3). The filly took her qualifying mark at first asking with a 2:02.2 effort. Owned by Loredana and Frank Cirillo, of Kleinburg, Ont., LMC Bumble Bee sat second through the fractions (:30.3, 1:01.3, 1:31.4) before popping out in the lane and hitting the wire first. The margin of victory was three quarters of a length.
