MILTON, October 16, 2018 – Royalty For Life filly P L Molly broke her maiden with a 1:59 victory in Tuesday’s second leg of the Harvest Series at Woodbine Mohawk Park.
A field of eight rookie trotting fillies clashed in the $17,000 second-round of the three-week Harvest Series.
P L Molly and driver Bob McClure made a strong third-quarter move from fifth to second and after dropping in behind leader Nifty Trick at the top of the lane, proceeded to power by in the final-eighth for a 1:59 score.
Nifty Trick, who lost by three-quarters of a length, finished second for the fourth-consecutive start. Order Mattie crossed the line third, while Briarwood Belle was fourth.
Eramosa Magic, who went off as the 2-1 favourite, made a break well-before the start. She finished eighth, but with broken equipment.
Trained by Matt Dupuis, P L Molly came into the Harvest Series second-leg off a fifth-place finish in the first-leg and was winless in seven starts. She has now earned $21,297 for owner-breeder Prince Lee Acres.
A $2 win ticket on P L Molly returned $12.70.
Ontario sired two-year-olds, who were non-winners of $30,000 as of September 30, were eligible for nomination to the Harvest Series.
All four Harvest Series finals for two-year-olds will take place on Thursday, October 25.
Live racing resumes Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park. Post time is 7:10 p.m.
