The Father-Son team of Carl and Jody Jamieson took two out of the three $40,000 OSS Gold Eliminations for two-year-old pacing fillies on Friday at Flamboro Downs, but unfortunately a No Contest overshadowed their performances.

In the opening division, Windsong Filou improved to two-for-two in her young racing career when she prevailed from first-over. Jamieson kept the Astreos – Jasper Avenue filly in fourth as Kesons Avail (Keith Oliver) and Northern Duchess (Mike Saftic) traded spots on the front in :28.2 and :57.1.

Northern Duchess continued to lead the way to the 1:27.3 three-quarters, but she now had Windsong Filou on her outside and just over a length back. The two talented fillies engaged in a final quarter battle, with Windsong Filou emerging by a quarter-length in 1:55.4 – a new lifetime best. Pantecostal (Mike Horner) was third.

Trainer Carl Jamieson co-owns Windsong Filou ($9.50) with partners Thomas Kyron, William Loyens and Harry Loyens. A $39,000 yearling purchase, she has earned $28,000.

The third tilt saw Rossridge Emotion go wire-to-wire for the Jamiesons. The daughter of Camotion – Whippet set the tempo and went unchallenged in :28.2, :58.3 and 1:27.3.

Going into the final turn, Rossridge Emotion got her first challenge, which came in the form of Rose Seelster (Mario Baillargeon). Those two fillies duked it out in the lane, but Jamieson got enough out of Rossridge Emotion to fend off Rose Seelster by a nose in 1:57. Orally Yours (Rob Shepherd) completed the top three.

Rossridge Emotion ($3.30) is owned by Ross Ridge Stables, Douglas Good, Ken Houston, and Bonnie Rattray. After finishing fourth in her debut last week, the filly, who was a $19,500 yearling purchase, has returned $23,734 in purses.

A scary incident occurred in the second split and it resulted in a No Contest being declared. As the field was going into the first turn, Cruiser Hudson and driver Jason Gilchrist made a nasty break, which then caused a chain-reaction in the backfield. Sitting second at the time was Spoiled Beach with driver Luc Ouellette, who was unseated in the mishap. Also involved in the incident was Putnam Jordan, who threw Scott Coulter from the bike.

There is no immediate word on the conditions of the horses. Coulter booked off the rest of his drives at Flamboro and Ouellette did the same at Mohawk. It has been reported that Coulter is at home resting with a few minor bumps and bruises. Ouellette, however, has a fracture in his left forearm and is likely to miss three to four weeks of action.

The draw for the OSS Final has been delayed due to the No Contest. When further details are available, Trot Insider will post them.
