After connecting for four wins eight days ago during the baby races at Woodbine Mohawk Park, pupils of Gregg McNair found the wire first eight times during the 13-dash session of qualifiers on Saturday (June 25).
Driver Doug McNair engineered each victory for his father's stable. All told, pupils from the McNair barn posted a 8-1-0 summary from the nine rookies in attendance.
The day started with Team McNair scoring a natural hat trick courtesy Buckhead Ridge (2:02.2) in the first, Tip Top Cat (1:55.1) in the second and Huntinthelastdolar (1:56.2) in the third. Subsequent wins came with trotters Dark Hammock Road (2:00) in the sixth and Osceola (1:57) in the seventh, pacer Sounds Good (1:55.4) in the eighth. The McNairs then swept what would be the late daily double on a pari-mutuel card of harness racing, clicking with Whatchulookin At (1:56.4) in the 12th dash and Stonebridge Bomber (2:00.2, pictured above) in the 13th and final.
