Stockade Seelster Remains Perfect After Dream Maker Win
Stockade Seelster made it three-for-three to start his young racing career on Friday (Aug. 5) at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
The son of State Treasurer delivered a 1:51.4 victory in the second leg of the Dream Maker Series for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings.
Coming off back-to-back wins in Ontario Sires Stakes Gold events, Stockade Seelster found the winner's circle for the third time in three career starts with driver Jody Jamieson in the bike.
It was Stormalong (Bob McClure), who held the lead after an opening fraction of :26.3, but he was immediately passed by odds-on favourite Stockade Seelster, who left from Post 4.
Stockade Seelster quickly grabbed control at the front of the field, and never relinquished the lead. He cruised through a :56.4 half and 1:25 three-quarters.
The competition was no match for him on this night.
Stockade Seelster came home in :26.4 to post a 5-1/4 length victory over Twin B Seamonster (Sylvain Filion) while Stormalong finished third.
Trained by Ian Moore and owned by Sally MacDonald of Souris, P.E.I., and Paul MacDonald of Toronto, Stockade Seelster has earned $111,300 this year.
His win paid $3.40.
Four Pop-Up Series races were also on Friday's card at Mohawk. The winners were Red Overbach (Jamieson) in 1:54, Hawaii (Filion) in 1:54.3, Tymal Riggs (Scott Young) in 1:55.4 and Shes Got Pizazz (Paul MacDonell) in 1:54.2.
