Round two of the Juggernaut Series was contested Sunday afternoon at Sudbury Downs, with a pair of $7,500 divisions on tap.

Stryking Dove, who was a 1:58.2 winner in last week’s opening leg of the series, notched her third consecutive tally for owner/trainer/breeder Kyle Reibeling of Rockwood, ON. The three-year-old daughter of L H Stryker-Dove Killean sat a pocket trip for the first half of the contest before popping the pocket and pressing the pace to the three-quarter pole in 1:27. Her :30-second closing quarter helped her jet away to the win by 2-1/4 lengths over State Of Euphoria. Ziggy Cam was a well beaten third.

Sent off as the 6-5 choice, Stryking Dove improved her lifetime record to 4-3-4 from just 16 trips to the track. Unraced as a rookie, the homebred has banked just over $26,000.

Bilbo Hanover made a massive move late in the mile in the second division en route to securing an 11-1 upset for trainer/driver Mike Noble. The three-year-old son of Yankee Cruiser-Bet Again Hanover exploded past foes at the three-quarter pole and kicked home in :29.3 to win by four lengths in 1:58.2. Ardmore was second, with Fools Run Around taking home third prize.

Ed Gorc of Sudbury, ON owns the colt who has assembled a 3-2-0 record in eight tries this season. He was unraced as a rookie. The lion’s share of the purse boosted his cash stash to $11,145.

On the undercard, Justlikejessejames blew away the foes he tackled in the $6,000 Preferred Pace. The five-year-old son of Million Dollar Cam drew clear to win by 6-3/4 lengths in 1:54.1 over Shiny Mach and Fit For Will.

Justin Turcotte mapped out the winning trip for the James Belanger trainee. The Champlain Stables of Azilda, ON own the nine-time winner who lifted his lifetime loot to $58,421 with the win.

Theron Seelster extended her winning streak to three-in-a-row thanks to her 1:58.1 decision in the $4,500 Fillies & Mares Preferred 3. The five-year-old daughter of Camluck threw down fractions of :28, :58.2 and 1:27 before cruising under the line by 1-1/2 lengths. Mellow Jenny was next best and No Teasing Me was third.

Gerry Belanger did the driving for owner/trainer Kyle Reibeling of Rockwood, ON. The mare has visited victory lane four times this season and 10 times in her career. The win pushed her career earnings in excess of $33,000.
