It was a chalky night at Woodbine Mohawk Park during Monday evening’s program – at least when it came to the three-year-old trotting fillies sparring in the set of rich, OSS Gold Series divisions.

Fresh off her sweep of this year’s SBOA Stake, Haveoneforme blew away the foes she faced in her $107,200 assignment for the tandem of driver Paul MacDonell and trainer Richard ‘Nifty’ Norman.

MacDonell got away second with the 2-5 favourite, before sending her to the front as soon as the field his the backstretch. Teddys Little Angel was on the hook for the :29.1 opening quarter, but Haveoneforme took command and proceeded to supply middle splits of :57.4 and 1:26.3. She kicked home in :29 to win by five lengths over Royal Esteem in 1:55.3. Angies Luckeylady was third.

The daughter of Kadabra-All Filled Up is owned by Enzed Racing Stable Inc, Mel Hartman and Little E LLC. Unraced as a rookie, Haveoneforme has assembled a 6-1-1 record from eight trips to the track this season. Her efforts have helped her bankroll $172,342 to date.

Bright Eyes M steamrolled over the foes she faced in her $107,200 division. Steve Byron rolled the John Bax pupil to the lead from Post 8, and the filly sliced out fractions of :28.2, :57.1 and 1:26.3 before scooting home in :28.2 to win by 5-1/4 lengths over Sams Arsenal in 1:55. HP Bruxelles rounded out the Trifecta ticket.

Sent off as the 4-5 favourite, the daughter of Kadabra-Motown Muscle improved this year’s record to 3-1-0 from four trips to the track with the win. Menhammar Stuteri AB of Paris, KY owns the winner of $119,984.

The winning streak is now five-in-a-row and counting for Musical Rhythm, who rallied to an impressive victory in Monday’s $34,000 Preferred Handicap for trotters.

Mario Baillargeon got away fifth with the Ben Baillargeon pupil while Free Willy Hanover, Dunbar Hall and Muscles For Life battled to the quarter pole in :27. Dunbar Hall emerged from the three-wide scrum with the lead, and he proceeded to take the field to the half in :56.

Musical Rhythm tipped to catch cover on the way to the half, and he eventually worked his way to the lead around the turn before taking the field past the three-quarter station in 1:24.3. A :28.4 closing quarter earned the seven-year-old son of Cantab Hall-Musical Victory the win by a pair of lengths over B Yoyo in 1:53.2. Exemplar took home the show dough.

The betting public made him the 4-5 favourite, and he didn’t disappoint his army of backers or his owners – Ben Baillargeon, Claude Hamel and the Venas – Nunzio and Santo. The 35-time winner bumped his lifetime earnings to $820,988 with the victory.
