The eighth and final division to kick off their 2014 Ontario Sires Stakes season are the two-year-old trotting fillies.

They’ll be in the spotlight in four Gold divisions tonight (July 14) at Mohawk and right back to that Campbellville track the following evening for five Grassroots events.

The star of this division last season was Riveting Rosie, who was named two-year-old trotting filly of the year in Canada at the conclusion of 2013. Rosie’s two-year-old full sister, Rustic Rosie, will make her racing debut in the second Gold division Moday night, race six.

Bred by Schare Adams of Kentucky, Rustic Rosie is co-owned by trainer Rick Zeron of Oakville, Ontario, James Walker of Port Perry, Ontario, Daniel Plouffe of Quebec and Howard Taylor of Pennsylvania. Purchased for $50,000 at last year’s Lexington Select Sale, the Muscle Mass filly won a qualifier at Mohawk on June 20 in 2:01.4. She drew post three on Monday with Zeron at the lines.

Riveting Rosie’s trainer John Bax is looking for another rookie trotting star and has contenders in each of the four Gold splits and all of his girls will be driven by Paul MacDonell. In race one he has Desis Dream, a Muscle Mass filly he co-owns with breeder Glengate Farm of Campbellville, Ontario.

That ownership group also has Fiery Eyes, a Mr Lavec filly, in the fourth division, race nine where she’ll depart from post seven. Bax also trained her dam, Aimees Image, to earnings of $365,000 in her career.

Juanitas Fury also represents a second generation mare for the Peterborough-based Bax who trained her dam, Gramolas Image. Juanitas Fury is his starter in the second test from post five. Bax and Glengate share ownership of this Kadabra miss with Don Allensen of Wyoming and Gaelic Stable of Sharon, Ontario.

A winner in her first lifetime start on June 30, the filly was bred by Doug Millard of Woodstock, Ontario who owns another starter in the race, Elegant Serenity.

That youngster has post eight with trainer Roger Mayotte in the bike. The filly’s dam is one of the most successful trotting mares to race in the OSS program, Elegantimage, who was co-owned by Millard during her racing career.

The third division, race six, sees Stubborn Belle representing the Bax barn. The Taurus Dream daughter is owned by Al Libfeld of Pickering, Ontario and will be making her first lifetime start. She sold for $85,000 at Harrisburg.

The fillies will compete in races one, two, six and nine tonight in the Gold races while Tuesday finds them in races one, two, three, five and nine for the Grassroots. Both cards may be viewed through the links below.
