Conversation Boy and Rock The Nite each captured his second straight split in Monday’s late-closing series for freshman colt and gelding pacers at The Meadows and will advance to the final.

Also earning a berth in the Nov. 1 championship was Cams Fernando, who took the other $12,500 second-leg division. Owner/breeder Bob Key enjoyed a series double with Conversation Boy and Rock The Nite.

Conversation Boy quarter-poled to the lead for Wilbur Yoder and held off the late, inside bid of Jed Kidd Squaking to defeat him by 3/4 lengths in 1:55.2. The first-over Aberdeen Hanover was third. Rich Gillock trains the son of Tell All-Water Colors K.

Rock The Nite, a son of Rocknroll Hanover-Queen Of The Ball, was ahead at every call — just as he was in the series opener — when he scored in 1:56.3 for Dave Palone and trainer Norm Parker. Mandalay Spur was second, 1-1/2 lengths back, with the first-over Nesh Cruiser third. It was one of four wins for Palone among the day’s 16 races.

In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace, 11-1 Macharoundtheclock won her third straight with an eye-popping, four-wide move into the final turn that carried her to victory in 1:53 over Do Me Honor. Rescue Team earned show.

Eric Ledford piloted the four-year-old daughter of Mach Three-Summers Soul, who now boasts $346,087 in career earnings, for trainer Tim Twaddle and owner Birnam Wood Farms.
