Sintra made a second-quarter move to the top and led by the half in :55.2. The Stephanie Jamieson trainee and driver Jody Jamieson created separation on their rivals by pacing a :27.3 third-quarter.

MILTON, May 18, 2019 - Harness racing driver Doug McNair kicked off his weekend in style by winning six-races on Friday night at Woodbine Mohawk Park. The Guelph, Ontario resident drove in 10 of the 11 races contested and found the winner's circle in more than half of his appearances. McNair's most notable victory of his six came behind six-year-old pacing mare Seaswift Joy N ($2.90) in the $30,000 Fillies & Mares Preferred Handicap. It was the second win in as many starts locally for the Tony Alagna trainee. The regular visits to the winner's circle for McNair began in the second-race with three-year-old pacing filly Sports Flix ($11.60), who is trained by Gregg McNair. The father-son duo teamed up to win the fourth-race with sophomore pacing filly Swift Ally ($6.30). McNair's victory with Swift Ally started a stretch of three-consecutive wins in the middle of the card, as he picked up victories with six-year-old pacer Santanna Tony ($27.60) for trainer Pat Shepherd and three-year-old pacing filly Deb ($7.20) for trainer James 'Friday' Dean. Following his fifth win of the night with Seaswift Joy N in the ninth-race, McNair collected his sixth and final victory with Rod Boyd trained four-year-old pacing mare Dragon Lady Art ($4.90) in the tenth-race. McNair now has 54 wins and earnings of just under $900,000 in 439 starts this season. Fans will have an opportunity to meet McNair and fellow driver James MacDonald ahead of Saturday evening's races.

Double A Mint was the hottest thing since sliced bread in the harness racing Fillies & Mares Preferred class at Woodbine Mohawk thanks in large part to six straight score in the class, but Friday night she turned over her tiara to a newcomer named Seaswift Joy N. Sent out by trainer Tony Alagna, Seaswift Joy N got away third in Friday’s $30,000 affair, but she didn’t sit for very long. After Sandbetweenurtoes threw down an opening quarter clocked in :27.2, Doug McNair had Seaswift Joy N in gear as the field entered the backstretch. Seaswift Joy N stole middle splits of :56.2 and 1:26 before roaring home in :26.4 to win by 2-3/4 lengths over the pocket-sitting Sandbetweenurtoes. Outlaw Fireball fended off Double A Mint in the race for the show dough. The 1:52.4 triumph was the sixth of the season from 11 attempts for the six-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight-Swift Belle. Brad Grant of Milton, Ont. owns the career winner of $223,989. To view results for Friday's card of harness racing, click this link. Courtesy of Standardbred Canada

MILTON, April 25, 2019 - Drivers Phil Hudon, Anthony MacDonald and Bob McClure were all taken to hospital following an accident during Thursday morning's fourth-qualifier at Woodbine Mohawk Park. The harness racing accident occurred in the second-quarter of the race when pacer Excaliber Seelster and driver Louis Philippe Roy stepped on the wheel of driver Paul MacDonell, who was sitting in the two-hole with Prestige Seelster. Excaliber Seelster broke stride from stepping on the wheel, which caused a chain-reaction. American Risk and McClure were trailing Excaliber Seelster and fell to the track. Hudon, driving The First Step, and MacDonald, driving Sunshines Finest, couldn't avoid the fallen horse and were both tossed from their sulkies to the track. Paramedics were quickly on the scene and transported McClure and MacDonald by ambulance to a local hospital. Hudon also went to hospital to be examined. All three drivers took to social media Thursday afternoon to provide updates on their injuries. MacDonald posted on Facebook that he suffered a broken wrist, broken elbow, broken ribs and a small collapsed lung. McClure also posted on Facebook, noting he broke his pelvis in the accident, but will not require surgery. Bob McClure     -New Image Media Hudon shared on Twitter that he suffered a broken left foot. Phil Hudon      - New Image Media All three horses were caught following the incident after being loose on the track.

The Thursday (April 25) qualifying session at Woodbine Mohawk Park was interrupted by a chain reaction accident that sent multiple drivers to the track. The harness racing accident occurred in race four. The chart from the race states that the Paul MacDonell-driven Prestige Seelster fell to the track in the second quarter of the contest and the rest of the horses in the dash were pulled up. Woodbine Entertainment’s Mark McKelvie, who was calling the qualifier, stated that drivers Phil Hudon, Anthony MacDonald and Bob McClure each hit the track after having been unseated. McKelvie added that Hudon and MacDonald were able to get up under their own power and were walking on the track, but that McClure stayed down longer. McClure was eventually able to sit up and be attended to by the on-track paramedics. After some time passed, McClure and MacDonald were taken to hospital. The nature and severity of any of the drivers’ injuries are currently unknown. McKelvie also stated that all of the horses that were involved in the accident were corralled and returned to the paddock for inspection. Trot Insider has learned that Hudon, who was limping after the ordeal, was able to get changed out of his driving colors and make his way home. Two extra ambulances were brought in to attend to the scene for McClure and MacDonald. Trot Insider was told at the scene that McClure hurt his hip, has a very sore back, and required a stretcher, while MacDonald sustained injuries to his wrist and elbow. Trot Insider will update this story when more information is learned.   from Standardbred Canada
