The Ontario Sire Heritage Series concluded last Friday at Woodbine Racetrack, with Bossy Holiday winning the colts and geldings division and $20,000 in bonus money.
A Talk Oaks Farm homebred, his performance in the first three legs had secured his position atop point standings heading into the $100,000 Lake Ontario Final over a mile and a sixteenth on the tapeta, and he proved game again in the finale.
The Josie Carroll trainee drew within a half-length entering the stretch drive before finishing a hard fought third.
“I think he was one of the only horses who ran in all four legs,” said Tall Oaks Farm Director Colleen Dalos. “We had a first, second, third, and sixth. He showed his consistency, versatility, and grit along the way.”
Ontario Racing’s Thoroughbred Improvement Program Committee established the Heritage Series in 2021 to provide additional racing opportunities for three-year-old Ontario Sired horses, with a male and female division.
