Two-year-old trotters found themselves in the spotlight Thursday evening at Woodbine Mohawk Park as the oval hosted finals of the Pure Ivory Series for fillies and the Millard Farms Series for colts and geldings.

The boys were up first in the $79,000 Millard Farms Series, and the undefeated
Macho Martini kept his perfect record intact thanks to a 1:54.4 triumph in the rich final.

With Bob McClure at the controls behind the son of Muscle Mass-Peach Martini, Macho Martini got away fourth while stablemate On A Streak shot to the top from Post 8 and supplied the field with a first quarter clocked in :27.2. As the field moved into the backstretch, McClure started up the engine on Macho Martini and asked him to march to the lead.

Macho Martini brushed to the lead and proceeded to lay down middle splits of :57.3 and 1:27 before kicking into gear and firing home in :27.4 to win by 2-3/4 lengths over On A Streak in a career-best clocking of 1:54.4. Lucky Rascal took home the show dough.

Determination of Montreal, QC owns the colt who was a $37,000 purchase from last fall’s Harrisburg Yearling Sale. Four wins from four starts has helped the youngster boost his bankroll to $140,433.

Macho Martini’s stablemate Donna Soprano established a new series record thanks to her 1:55.1 triumph in the $84,500 Pure Ivory Series for trotting fillies.

Bob McClure floated off the gate from Post 9 and watched Rubys Are Nice throw down an opening quarter clocked in :28.2. Donna Soprano’s stablemate, Dicentra, attacked first over and took command at the half in :58.1. She was still in command at the three-quarter pole in 1:27.1, but Donna Soprano was rallying off cover and charging hard. Donna Soprano trotted her own final quarter in :27.1, and that was good enough to earn her the win by 3-3/4 lengths over Dicentra. Amazone Duharas was third.

Determination of Montreal, QC shelled out $190,000 at last fall’s Harrisburg Yearling Sale for Donna Soprano, who is now two-for-two to kick off her career. The lion’s share of the loot lifted her cash stash to $52,250.
