Milton, ON — Sylvain Filion put on a driving clinic Tuesday evening (July 16) at Woodbine Mohawk Park by winning six-races.
The Milton, Ontario resident scored six wins in 10 drives with four of his victories coming in Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots action for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings.
Filion busted into the win column in the evening’s third-race with rookie pacing colt Allywag Hanover ($2.70) for trainer Casie Coleman. The veteran reinsman proceeded to post victories in the following two-races, both OSS Grassroots events, with Tabloid Writer ($13.20) for Ben Baillargeon and Quick Tour ($10.20) for Mark Horner.
After a one-race break from the winner’s circle, Filion kicked off his second natural Hat-Trick of the card with Kevin McMaster trainee Dontblvmejustwatch ($3.40) in an OSS Grassroots contest. His fifth and sixth victories of the card came with six-year-old trotting mare P L Jill ($2.90) for Baillargeon and two-year-old gelded pacer My Land ($9.20) for Gerard Demers in an OSS contest.
Filion nearly made it seven-wins on the evening, as he finished second in the finale with rookie pacing colt Better B Swift.
The six-win night gives Filion 150 victories this season at Woodbine Mohawk Park and a 34-win lead in the driver’s standings over nearest rival Louis Philippe Roy.
Live racing resumes Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Post time is 7:10 p.m.
