Canada's Jody Jamieson took the lead in the World Driving Championship with a hat trick of wins on Thursday night at the Meadowlands Racetrack.

Jamieson steered Lady Andover ($4.60) to victory in the opener, the first of the night's four WDC races.  He also reined in Military Stratcom ($3.00) and Albion ($5.00) in legs three and four to pull ahead in the standings.  Jamieson now leads the way with 133 points heading into Friday's series finale at Yonkers Raceway.

 Juan Riera-Rossello of Spain also picked up a victory, with Casimir Camotion ($3.80), to hold second in the rankings with 127 points.  Dexter Dunn is now in third with 121 points.

The 25th Championship is being hosted by the U.S. Trotting Association.  The winner will claim $25,000 of the $55,000 purse, the Ulf Thoresen Trophy and the right to defend his title in France, in 2013.
