Trainer Carl Jamieson was a busy man Thursday morning at Mohawk Racetrack as the veteran conditioner teamed up with his son Jody to capture five of nine qualifying events. Up The Credit, Mach It Big, Kyron, Cross Of Lorraine and Mister Herbie all found the winner’s circle.
Up The Credit, a 3-year-old son of Western Terror, was the headliner for the Jamieson stable as he went gate-to-wire in 1:55.4. The North America Cup eligible captured the opening division of the Dream Maker series last summer at Mohawk in 1:51.4 defeating Big Jim before suffering a season-ending injury.
Jamieson has praised the two-time winner all winter and says it’s all systems go. "He acts like a champion horse," Jamieson said about Up The Credit. "He acts that way on the track and off it. He shows great speed and if nothing happens to him, he will be a top contender this year."
Kyron and Mach It Big are also returning 3 year olds this season for Jamieson. Kyron, who scored his qualifying victory in 1:59-flat, banked $99,750 as a freshman despite just one victory. The son of Million Dollar Cam finished fourth in the $300,000 Battle of Waterloo last season. After earning $72,460 last year, Mach It Big, a son of Mach Three, scored a comfortable victory yesterday for Jamieson in 1:57-flat.
Both Kyron and Mach It Big are Ontario eligible and are being pointed towards the $500,000 Upper Canada Cup in May at Georgian Downs.
Cross Of Lorraine, who equaled the Mohawk Racetrack track record last season and has earned $303,352 lifetime, also qualified impressively for Jamieson in 2:00.1. The 4-year-old daughter of Angus Hall suffered a season-ending injury in late September, but seems to be on her game, according to Jamieson.
In today's interview with WEG's media department, Jamieson talks about the return of his stable stars and offers his thoughts on his two-year-olds in training. To watch the video, click the link http://bcove.me/0rqqi8k7
