The second leg of the Simcoe Claiming Series presented three more divisions worth $7,000 a piece for trotters on Saturday at Georgian Downs.

Lindy Five Hundred recovered from an early miscue for new trainer, driver and owner Gerry Belanger to win the first split in 2:01. The seven-year-old Lindy Lane gelding, who was sent postward as the 7-5 third choice, filled the pocket behind the pacesetter, Nitro Jet (Michael Whelan), after the opening quarter but was shuffled back to fifth by the third quarter station. Using a :29.3 final quarter, Lindy Five Hundred sprinted home to win by a nose over the popular choice, Dreamer II (Keith Jones). Nitro Jet rounded out the top three.

Lindy Five Hundred, who was claimed by Belanger in first round action, notched his second win of the year and 15th of his career lifting his earnings to over $260,000.

Get Er Done did just that in the second division with a wire-to-wire win for new connections trainer Cory Fuller and owner Wilbert Weatherall of Flesherton, Ont. The 7-2 third choice left from Post 4 with Paul Mackenzie in tow and led every step of the way winning in 1:59.2 by two and a half lengths over the pocket-sitting Pappa Pellegrino (J.R. Plante). Muckross (Stephen Byron) finished back in third.

Get Er Done, a six-year-old Fame N Fortune gelding, scored his fourth win in 11 tries this year. The win was lucky number 13 for Get Er Done, who has banked nearly $49,000 in his career.

In the final contest, Csi Lucky In Love made his way to victory lane for trainer Rene Allard and owner Ian Fromowitz of Richmond Hill, Ont. Scott Coulter took the reins in tonight’s affair and guided the seven-year-old How To Love gelding around the Innisfil oval in a time of 2:02.3. The 6-5 post time favourite prevailed by three and three-quarter lengths over Peyton Way (Tony Kerwood) and Roll With The Time (William Megens).

Csi Lucky In Love, a winner of over $67,000, notched his second win of 2009 and 12th of his career.
