The fields are set and the post positions have been drawn for 2019 Ontario Sires Stakes Super Final Night. A total of $1.8 million in OSS purses will be on the line this Saturday evening (Oct. 12) at Woodbine Mohawk Park, as the top Ontario-sired performers will battle it out.

Mohawk’s 12-dash program of racing will feature eight $225,000 OSS Gold Finals for two- and three-year-olds of both sexes and gaits. The evening’s first race will head to post at 7:10 p.m.

Forbidden Trade, who this summer captured the 94th Hambletonian down at the Meadowlands Racetrack, headlines the three-year-old colt and gelding trot (Race 9, 9:50 p.m.). In addition to winning the Hambo and recording a close second-place finish in the Goodtimes, the brown son of Kadabra has triumphed three OSS Gold tilts over Mohawk. Forbidden Trade will have his work cut out for him in his Saturday test, though, as the Luc Blais-trained and Bob McClure-driven colt will start from Post 9 for the ten-horse affair. Forbidden Trade is owned by the Determination stable of Montreal, Que.

Century Farroh, another Ontario-sired star that has found success on the Grand Circuit this season, will also be looking to capture his respective OSS Super Final. The Dr. Ian Moore-trained and Sylvain Filion-driven bay has drawn Post 3 in the three-year-old colt and gelding pace. The tilt has been carded as Race 8 (9:30 p.m.) and will house a shorter field of seven. The son of Mach Three has been a treat this season for the Ratchford Stable of North Sydney, NS. The colt has won 12 of his 14 starts this year, lowered his mark to 1:49.1 and banked $692,451 thus far in his campaign. In addition to capturing the consolation of the Pepsi North America Cup and four OSS Gold races, Century Farroh won a division of the Simcoe Stakes and then went on to reign supreme in the Jennas Beach Boy at Hoosier Park.

Another Ontario-sired standout will be in the spotlight for Race 2, which will feature ten of the province’s top juvenile pacing fillies. Alicorn, who has been sensational for trainer Chantal Mitchell and driver Louis-Philippe Roy, has drawn Post 6 in the full field. The daughter of Bettors Delight is out of the Artsplace mare Mythical. Alicorn has won six of her 10 starts this year. She has made her way to the winner’s circle after three of her OSS Gold starts and also tasted victory in the Eternal Camnation. She was just collared late in the Shes A Great Lady and wound up finishing second by a half length in what was a 1:49.3 mile. The winner of $408,289 in purses is owned by Windermere Stable LLC (of New York, NY) and Robert Muscara (Ivyland, PA).
