Autumn Series Finale Dead Heat
October 21, 2023 - The early miscue from heavy favourite Lady All Star
left Saturday's Ontario Sired Autumn Series final for two- and
three-year-old filly trotters wide open for another filly to find the
Flamboro Downs winner's circle.
As it turned out, a pair of fillies did just just that.
Second choice Allstar Goldi (Scott Coulter) took the early lead in the $21,000 event and carved out first half fractions of :30 and 1:01. At the half, Northern Classic (Anthony Haughan) was flushed out from third by Fast Resolution (Todd Ratchford) and Northern Classic cleared to the top just past the 1:31 third station. Fast Resolution was left uncovered and kept advancing steadily up on the rim.
Turning for home, Allstar Goldi darted back inside to the passing lane and Fast Resolution found her best stride to challenge Northern Classic and provide a three-across finish too close for announcer Gary Guy to call. And with good reason: there was a dead-heat between Fast Resolution and Northern Classic in 2:01.4, with Allstar Goldi just a head back in third.
Two-year-old Fast Resolution (Resolve - Candy Lanel) is trained by Jacob Roberts of Fergus, Ont., and he co-owns the filly with Steve Adams of Toronto, Ont. and James Woods of Guelph, Ont. That was her first win in six tries, and she paid $9.50 to win.
Northern Classic (Muscle Mass - Her Name Is Lola) is trained by Gabby Sasso for Jeff Courchesne of Cambridge, Ont. and Martwest Racing Stable of Mississauga, Ont. The sophomore paid $8.50 to win, with this her second career victory.
Funtime Bayama Breaks A Track Record

October 1, 2023 - Flamboro Downs played host to the final leg of
Ontario Sire Stakes Gold action for two-year-old pacers as part of the
11-race Sunday (Oct. 1) card. Two-divisions each for the pacing fillies
and colts were featured, highlighted by Funtime Bayama pacing to a track
record and equaling the all-time Canadian record for two-year-old pacing
geldings on a half mile track.
Starting from post two in the $99,500 first division for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings, driver Sylvain Filion wasted no time getting Funtime Bayama to the front, leading the field to the opening quarter in :28. The Richard Moreau trainee remained unchallenged on the lead to the halfway point in :57.1. Funtime Bayama began to assert himself on the lead in the third-quarter, opening up on the field by five lengths to reach that station in 1:25.1. The race was against the clock in the final stanza, with Funtime Bayama powering home in :27.3 as a geared down winner by five in 1:52.4. Nijinsky and James Macdonald finished second, with Wikipedia and Jonathan Drury third. Funtime Bayama paid $2.10 as the 1-9 favourite.
The victory was the fourth of the season for the son of Hes Watching-Tymal Sugrbabydoll, all of which have come consecutively. The homebred for Bayama Farms Inc is yet to finish worse than second in six career starts and now boasts a career bankroll of $212,880. Now the fastest freshmen in Flamboro history, the 1:52.4 clocking lowered the previous mark of 1:53.4 for two-year-old pacing geldings shared by Nebupanezzar, I Found My Beach and Moment Is Here and equaled the all-time Canadian Record for two-year-old pacing geldings on a half held by Betterhavemymoney.
