Michaels Power hits $1 mil with Ontario Gold
« Return to News
The mile lowered the previous three-year-old pacing colt record of 1:51 set by former Ontario Sires Stakes star Doonbeg in 2006.
Sunday's win was Michaels Power's third straight Gold Final title. The son of Camluck and Michelles Jackpot is now flawless through five Gold Series starts. In 13 sophomore starts the gelding has tallied 11 wins and one second and Sunday's triumph pushed his season earnings to $1,020,500.
Casie Coleman conditions Michaels Power for owner-breeder Jeffrey Snyder of New York, NY. In addition to his success in the Gold Series program the pacer has also captured the Aug. 12 Confederation Cup Final at Flamboro Downs, the July 21 Canadian Breeders Championship and a leg of the June 2 Somebeachsomewhere Stake at Mohawk Racetrack, and swept his elimination and the final of the Upper Canada Cup at Georgian Downs in May.

Coleman and Snyder will now have to choose whether to defend the Gold Final title at Mohawk Racetrack on Sept. 15 and 22 or make the trip to Delaware, OH for the historic Little Brown Jug on Sept. 20. If Michaels Power skips the fourth Gold Series event, fans can catch him in the regular season finale at Flamboro Downs on Oct. 5 and 12.
Ontario Sires Stakes action returns to Rideau Carleton Raceway on Sunday, Sept. 9 with the final Grassroots event of the regular season for the two-year-old pacing fillies.
