Freshmen pacing colts and geldings made their way to Clinton Raceway on Sunday afternoon for a total of six $20,000 OSS Grassroots divisions.

Lucky Herb was the quickest divisional winner on the card thanks to his 1:57.3 triumph for trainer Bob McIntosh and driver Brad Forward.

The homebred Camluck colt led at every call en route to the maiden-breaking score for the Robert McIntosh Stables Inc., C S X Stables and Dave Boyle.

Shortstacked picked up the seventh win of his career in just his eighth lifetime start when he stepped to a 1:57.4 score in his split for trainer Erv Miller and driver Jason Brewer.

The son of Astreos brushed to the lead shortly after the quarter pole, and he never looked back from that point on. The homebred colt is owned by Ervin Miller Stable Inc., Omer Miller and Nelson Herschberger of Illinois.

In A Craze stopped the clock in 1:59.1 to take the opening OSS affair for driver Robert Shepherd and double Hall-of-Fame trainer, Keith Waples.

Keith and Eileen Waples' Shady Hill Racing Stable of Guelph and Charles Muylaert of Nobleton, ON share ownership on the Astreos colt, who has put together a 2-1-0 record in his first four lifetime starts.

The Ladies Man was a popular winner in his assignment for trainer Jim Ritchie and Bruce Richardson, who guided the Modern Art gelding to a driving off victory in a time of 1:58.3.

Ritchie shares ownership on the two-time winner, who upped his lifetime earnings $15,650 with the win, with Paul Ritchie, Murray Cox and Greg Majkowski of Ontario.

Medoland Machoman went wire-to-wire in his division for trainer Mike Medors, who watched Ross Battin steer the Million Dollar Cam colt to a 2:00 decision.

The colt, who won for the third time in eight starts, has banked $40,700 to date for partners Tamara Hoovler, Slaughter Racing Stb. LLC and Patrick Medors.

Spanker capped off the afternoon with a 1:59.3 score in the final split for driver Bruce Richardson and owner/trainer/breeder Gary Hodgson of London, ON.

The Mantacular gelding did most of the roadwork in the $20,000 affair en route to his second win in six career starts.

Next stop on the OSS trail for the Grassrooters in the two-year-old pacing colt and gelding division will be September 13 at Woodstock Raceway.
