Ms Mac N Cheese Wins Ontario Sire Stakes Gold Leg 3

Monday, August 03, 2015  By: Standardbred Canada

Ms Mac N Cheese gave betting favourites a sweep of the Ontario Sires Stakes events, winning the second Ontario Sires Stakes Gold leg for three-year-old pacing fillies.

Sylvain Filion gunned Ms Mac N Cheese out from Post Four for early position, but was forced to sit the pocket by an equaly-ambitious Sports Chic (Jody Jamieson). The first panel flashed up in :27.2 and the pace slowed heading in front of the grandstand. That was Randy waples' cue to fire Cast No Shadow from the back the pack first up and thus pinning favoured Mc Mac N Cheese to the pylons at the :57.2 half.

Cast No Shadow kept applying first over pressure through the 1:26 third panel and into the stretch drive, prompting Filion to look to the passing lane with Ms Nac N Cheese. His charge responded with enough late kick to forge past Sports Chic for the 1:55.3 by a length. Ride Away Shark (Phil Hudon) closed from the clouds to complete the triactor.

Richard Moreau trains Ms Mac N Cheese (Badlands Hanover - Mr Delis Filly) for David Ratchford of North Sydney, N.S. In eight sophomore starts, Ms Mac N Cheese hasn't missed the board with a 5-2-1 seasonal summary.

Solar Sister and driver Doug McNair had almost everything their way in the first OSS division, looping to the lead around second choice Wrangler Magic (Sylvain Filion) at the opening quarter mark in a brisk :26.3. The duo then carved out fractions of :54.4 and 1:24 before pacing home in 29.2 to trip the timer first in 1:53.2. An inquiry examined whether or not Solar Sister was in violation of the passing lane rules. The Ontario Racing Commission ruled that Solar Sister "did not violate the passing lane regulations" and stood as the winner over Wrangler Magic while Stonebridge Quest (Trevor Henry) completed the triactor.

Trained by Gregg McNair, Solar Sister is a homebred owned by David Willmot of King City and Clay Horner of Toronto, Ont. The regally-bred daughter of Mach Three - Cabrini Hanover is now 6-for-9 on the season and eclipsed the $500,000 plateau in lifetime earnings with the victory, her third straight in OSS competition.
