A big night of harness racing with Grand Circuit action on Saturday at Woodbine Mohawk Park will be topped off by a massive carryover in the Jackpot Hi-5 after Friday's finale wager had multiple winners while Sporty Tori crushed the competition.

Closing out the 12-race card on Friday, driver Scott Younger sent 7-2 second choice Sporty Tori to the lead in the $16,000 fillies and mares conditioned pace and put up a :26.4 opening quarter with Kat following in the pocket and Goodnight Irene tracking in third.

After a :55.4 half, 2-1 favourite Town Delinquent went first-up from fourth while Sporty Tori began to open up on top past three-quarters in 1:23.4. Up three lengths at the top of the stretch, she continued to widen her lead down the lane with a :26.4 kicker, winning by 7-1/4 lengths in a career-best clocking of 1:50.3.

Goodnight Irene, the 4-1 third choice, got up for second, finishing three-quarters of a length in front of Town Delinquent. Sunday Afternoon finished a close fourth at odds of 20-1 while 9-1 shot Mia Culpa passed half the field in the stretch to complete the top five.

With back-to-back victories at Mohawk, the five-year-old daughter of Sportswriter is now a 20-time career winner with nearly $185,000 in earnings for trainer Gord McKnight and owner/breeder M&S Racing.

Sporty Tori returned $9.50 to win and led the 6-1-7-4-8 winning Jackpot Hi-5 combination that paid $1,340.80 for a $1 ticket. The Jackpot is paid out when there is only one single winning ticket. The carryover heading into Saturday night's finale (Race 13) is $217,077.07.
