The Labatts Claiming Series continued on Saturday night at Georgian Downs with Coriander Please and Tymal Toko winning their respective divisions, each carrying a purse of $9,500. The series is for non-winners of $30,000 lifetime as of July 15, 2011, who are racing for a claiming price of $12,000.

Coriander Please and driver Anthony Haughan rallied home off cover to win the first division in 1:58.1 by two and three-quarter lengths. Tempo-setter Delcrest Mr Joe (Dan Clements) finished second while longshot Acuity (Keith Jones) rallied from last to show.

The five-year-old gelded son of Plesac-The Day Is Cumin paid $11.10 as the 9-2 fourth choice. Gregory Graham trains the winner of three races in 18 seasonal starts for owners Sherry Graham of Caledonia and Tim Gallant of Hamilton, Ont.

Tymal Yoko was a gate-to-wire winner in the second split for driver Dan Clements and trainer Eric Adams. The daughter of Striking Sahbra-Yoko Hanover scored the one and three-quarter lengths victory in a matching time of 1:58.1 over the popular pocket-sitter Raise E Daisy (J.R. Plante), a first leg winner, and Yoadrien (Mark Etsell).

Tymal Yoko paid $5.50 to win for the first time in two starts this year. Millar Farms of Newmarket, Ont. owns the four-year-old mare.
