McNairs Sweep Ontario Sires Stakes

August 7, 2022 - The glamour boys were at Georgian Downs tonight for a pair of Ontario Sires Stakes Gold divisions, and the father-son duo of Gregg and Doug McNair was victorious in each.

Sport Secret started the night off earning his first stakes victory in the $102,200 division in Race 1.

In Race 3, the second $101,300 OSS Gold division, Stonebridge Helios picked up his third-consecutive win since transferring to the McNair barn.

The Sunshine Beach colt was impressive from start to finish. Sent at 1-9 from post 4, he settled off the :26.4 first quarter and made a powerful first-up move as the field passed the grandstand for the first time, going from fourth to the front, and leading the rest of the way to win by two lengths.

His final time of 1:49.4 is only three-tenths of a second off his career mark of 1:49.1 set his last time out.

“He seems to be getting stronger every start,” said Gregg. “He went a nice mile last week at Mohawk, and tonight was a big trip, doing quite a bit of the work, and leading them through the half in :54. It was a good mile for him.”

July 26, 2022 - A visit to Georgian Downs to watch live harness racing was a wish come true for a special guest.

In a visit orchestrated by the Senior Wish Association, Georgian Downs hosted racing fan Ned Soulliere and his wife Linda for a special night at the track on Tuesday July 26. A dead-heat in the evening's first race dedicated to Soulliere added to the excitement of his visit as he joined the winner's circle celebrations, flanked by four-year-old pacing mares Better Kissthe Men and Wine And Cheese.

Georgian Downs, which has worked with the Senior Wish Association in the past, provided hats, betting vouchers, reserved lounge seating and facilitated a driver meet and greet and a paddock tour for the longtime racing fan.

2022 GD Racing Season Opens

A nine-race card kicked off the 2022 harness racing season at Georgian Downs on Saturday June 4, 2022. Saulsbrook Jessie scored in the evening’s feature, a $10,000 fillies and mares conditioned pace.

The six-year-old Big Jim mare marched to the top past a :28 first quarter and cruised from there. She tripped a :57.4 half uncontested and endured mild first-over pressure from Broken into three-quarters in 1:26.2 before spurting clear. The odds-on favourite spun for home and opened 4-1/4 lengths on Broken to win in 1:54.4. Latte Seelster finished third.
