Woodbine Racetrack hosted round two of The Count B and Ontario Girls Series during its Friday evening card of racing, with many horses searching for prime performances in order to punch their tickets to next week’s rich finals.

His Boy Elroy knocked off the previously-unbeaten Camvicted in the opening division of The Count B Series. The Jack Belliveau trainee swept up late to win in going away fashion in a career-best clocking of 1:55.1.

Jody Jamieson got away fifth with His Boy Elroy while Littlebitaswagger and race favourite Camvicted took turns on the lead through fractions of :28.1, :58.1 and 1:26.2. Legion Of Boom turned in a gritty effort from first-over in the back-half of the mile, but it still wasn’t good enough to derail His Boy Elroy who rallied from fifth to first in the final quarter of the contest. The 5-1 upsetter defeated Legion Of Boom by a length. Camvicted faded late and settled for the show dough in the $17,000 tilt.

Dan Mac Rae of Baddeck, Nova Scotia owns the son of Jeremes Jet-Impressive Sign who broke into the win column for the first time this season and for the second time in his career. The $8,500 payday bumped his bankroll to $31,571.

Conversation Boy made a miscue and wound up settling for the runner-up award when sent off as the favourite in week one of the series, but he bounced back and posted an impressive 1:54.1 score in Friday’s second-leg assignment.

Sylvain Filion got away fourth with the colt who watched Newbie, Nobettorplacetobe and Dialamara mix it up on the lead through first-half fractions of :28 and :57.3. Filion had his charge rolling the backstretch and they eventually cleared to the front. Conversation Boy was in charge of the tempo at the three-quarter pole in 1:26.1, and he used a :28-second closing quarter to win by three-quarters of a length over Dialamara. Third prize went to Nobettorplacetobe.

Sent off as the 7/5 favourite, Conversation Boy improved his 2015 record to 2-1-0 from six trips to the track for owner/breeder Bob Key of Leechburg, Pennsylvania. Richard Moreau trains the career winner of $47,787.

Bet Ya took the lone division of the Ontario Girls Series for trainer/driver Jack Moiseyev, winning by a nose over Artistic Fusion in 1:54.

The four-year-old daughter of Jeremes Jet-Star Princess got away fifth while Regally Ready sliced out the opening split in :27.1. Moiseyev had his charge up and driving the backstretch, and in a matter of strides they took over command and led the field through middle frames of :57 and 1:25.1. Artistic Fusion rallied off cover turning for home and sprinted to the line with Bet Ya, with the latter prevailing by the slimmest of margins. Jakardez rounded out the top three finishers in the $18,000 affair.

Breeder Nancy MacNevin of Essex co-owns the seven-time winner with Joanne Colville of Moffat, Ontario. Together, the partners have watched the OSS graduate bank in excess of $108,000 to date.
