Angus Hall has long been considered a top producer of stakes winners, and all you had to do was watch Tuesday evening's card from Georgian Downs if you wanted proof.

Daughters of the talented trotting sire took home trophies in three of the five OSS Grassroots divisions for three-year-old trotting fillies.

Fa Mulan notched her second OSS Grassroots trophy thanks to her 1:57 score in the opening tilt for trainer Rich Griffiths and driver Jason Brewer.

The Berndt Hanover filly took over the lead shortly after the quarter pole, and she drew away to win by more than fourth lengths as the 6-5 favourite. Magical Wand was second and Greater Good rounded out the top three.

Ming & Irene Siu of Richmond, BC hold the papers on the 10-time winner, who upped her lifetime earnings to $70,190 with the win.

Brewer returned to victory lane in the next division with Majestic Style, who rallied to win in a time of 1:58.3.

The Blair Burgess-trained daughter of Angus Hall, who was sent off as the 4-5 favourite, edged out Good Common Cents for her sixth win of the campaign. Style Defined finished third.

The homebred, who is owned by Brittany Farms of Versailles, KY, now boasts a $63,726 bankroll. It was the filly's third OSS Grassroots victory of the season.

Ocean Mist Dynasty gave trotting sire Angus Hall back-to-back winners thanks to her 1:57 triumph in third division. The Lori Jackson pupil led from start to finish en route to the decisive tally.

Mario Lachance engineered the winning trip for owner Gaetan Bono of Laval, QC, who watched the filly easily dispose of runner-up Stonebridge Dancer and third-place finisher Live In Love.

It was the third win of the season and the fourth lifetime score for the career winner of $52,777.

Allmar Surprise gave sire Angus Hall the natural hat trick after taking the checkered flag in the fourth division. The John Bax student finished her gate-to-wire in a time of 1:59.1.

Steve Byron rolled the filly through panels of :28.1, :57.4 and 1:28.1 before coasting home in :31 seconds for the win. It was nearly four lengths back to runner-up Lady Merlot. Tuscan Sky was third.

After going winless in three starts as a rookie, the filly has notched four wins in 12 starts during her 2008 campaign for the Mark Ten Stable of Russell, ON. The $10,000 payday lifted her lifetime earnings to $30,766.

Pleasure Girls grabbed her third OSS Grassroots victory of the season in the fifth division, and she did so as an overwhelming favourite for driver Sylvain Filion.

The Dr Ronerail miss, who hangs her harness bag in the barn of trainer Richard Moreau, led for the majority of the mile and held on to win by a half-length margin in a time of 1:57.3. Babra Kadabra was second and Benediction Lindy finished third.

It was the fifth win of the season for the career winner of $63,900, who races for the partnership of Ecurie Richard Moreau Inc., 2095589 Ontario Inc. and Jean Dessureault.

The three-year-old trotting fillies will head to Flamboro Downs for the final OSS Grassroots event of the season on October 6. The top 16 point earners will then have the chance to square off in the Semi Finals over that oval on October 16, with the final taking place on October 24.
