After winning five dashes on last Saturday’s program at Woodbine Racetrack, driver Jody Jamieson upped the ante on Friday night and won six of the 12 races. Canada’s reigning Driver of the Year kicked off the evening with a three-race win streak, which also gave O’Brien Award winning conditioner Jeff Gillis a training triple. Jamieson guided Continual Velocity ($15.40, 1:55.1), Illusionsndreams ($4.70, 1:54.2) and Classic Alana ($5.40, 1:55.3) to victory in races one through three.
In race seven, the reinsman and Jack Darling trainee Big Mcdeal ($2.70, 1:53), who equalled the 1:50.2 world record for freshman filly pacers on a one-mile track last year at The Red Mile, were able to overcome post 10 to score. The win was her first this year in two starts. Jamieson also won with Weslynn Legacy ($35.80, 1:56.4) for trainer Rousell Mackenzie in the ninth race and with Hat Trick Honey ($12.60, 1:52) for trainer Tan Micallef in the 12th and final dash.
The Moffat, Ont. resident, who has won six races on a single card three times in 2011 on the WEG circuit, currently sits atop Woodbine’s 2012 driver standings with 106 victories in 585 starts and over $2 million in seasonal earnings. Also on the card, Scott Zeron found the winner’s circle with four of his eight drives: Rock Ann Rolling ($4.50, 1:52.3), Goodbadanddeugly N ($11.60, 1:52.1), Imagine Semalu ($27.10, 1:53) and Bordeauxs Best ($10.10, 1:52.2).
