Three $8,500 divisions of the Autumn Series for freshman and sophomore fillies were contested on Monday (Oct. 16) at The Raceway at the Western Fair District as the second leg of the series.

Greystone Cheet O was steered to the fastest victory of the evening's series action with the winning drive provided by her trainer Lorne House.

House and the three-year-old filly left hard from the center of the field. While favoured No Place To Hide (Tyler Moore) took the early lead along the pylons, Greystone Cheet O was the first to the opening panel in :28.4. She handed out two more panels in :59 and 1:28.4 before hanging onto the victory at the wire by a head in a career-best 1:59. No Place To Hide finished second and Brave Chic (Scott Wray) took the show spot.

House co-owns the daughter of Betterthancheddar with Samuel Taylor as she earned her third win in 10 goes. She paid $8.30 to win.

Cabana Nana took the second split in 1:59.1 with Colin Kelly in the bike for trainer James Ellis.

Southwind Stratus (Austin Sorrie) led to the quarter in :29.4, followed by Leavinwithasmile (Brett MacDonald) in second and Cabana Nana in third. Kelly tugged on his right line and sent Cabana Nana first over through the half in 1:01. The pair took over before the three-quarters in 1:29.3 and kept going to win by 1-3/4 lengths. Southwind Stratus finished second with Leavinwithasmile third.

Owned by Petrina Lawrence, the Betterthancheddar daughter secured her second win in seven starts. She paid $5.70 to win.

Mollys Game scored her second Autumn Series victory in a similar gate-to-wire tactic as the previous win.

J Harris and the Shawn Steacy trainee clicked out panels in :28.3, :59.4 and 1:29.3 before crossing the wire 1-1/2 lengths the best in 1:59.2. Im A Karen (Paul MacKenzie) grabbed second and Bet Im Shady (Travis Henry) rounded out the triactor.

Mollys Game is a freshman daughter of Bettors Delight owned by Mickey Sudar and Dewitt Stables. She earned her third win in 10 starts. She paid $2.40 to win as the favourite.
