CAMPBELLVILLE, ON. Tell All, in rein to Bible Hill, N.S. native Jody Jamieson, won Canadas richest harness race, the $1.5-million Pepsi North America Cup, with a two-length victory in 1:50.3 at Mohawk Raceway on Saturday night.

This is certainly the biggest win in my career without a doubt. said the 32-year-old driver, who was joined in the winners circle by his young daughter Hayley and his parents Carl and Debbie Jamieson.

The elder Jamieson was to experience disappointment earlier Saturday night when the horse he trains, Reserve Forces had to be scratched after coming up lame in his warm-up.

I think he (Reserve Forces) would have been in the thick of things. said Carl, who said his horse has been bothered by sore feet.

Tell All, who had won his elimination heat for trainer Blair Burgess, sat fifth in the early going with Jamieson moving him to the outside before the three-quarter marker and taking aim at the leader Yankee Skyscaper at the top of the stretch.

Tell All stormed to the top and got home with a two-length cushion over Sutter Hanover.

Watta Hotshot, a colt owned by Wayne Whebby of Dartmouth, N. S., rallied to finish third for veteran driver Jack Moiseyev, earning $180,000 for the Nova Scotia stable. Watta Hotshot is trained by Charlottetown native Scott Bell. It was the second straight year that Whebby has had a horse in the North America Cup. Feelin Friskie finished second last year.

Jody Jamieson capped off the big night by winning a $26,000 class with Astronomical, a five-year-old stallion co-owned by Dr. Ian Moore of Charlottetown, Ron McLellan of Bathurst and Sandy Shearer of Bedford, N.S., Astronomical won by two and one-quarter lengths in 1:50.4.
