Second leg action of the Ontario Girls and The Count B Series took place under frigid conditions Friday at Woodbine Racetrack.
 
Just a single division was necessary for each series with their finals scheduled for next Friday (February 19). Ainsleynoelle pulled off a mini upset against seven rivals in the $18,000 Ontario Girls second leg.
 
Driven by Randy Waples, Ainsleynoelle got a pocket trip and was able to convert in the lane for a 1:55.2 score at 7/1. Mach Magic cut the mile, but gave way late to finish second by a length. Pinky Tuscadero finished third. Amazing Control, who won a first leg division, finished fourth, while the favorite Double Olives was sixth.
 
A four-year-old daughter of Jeremes Jet, Ainsleynoelle is trained by Colin Johnson for owners Debbie Element, David Heffering and Ecurie JGV Enrg. Friday's victory was her first win in six starts this season and eighth victory overall.

 

Ainsleynoelle, who finished fifth in a first leg division last week, now has over $89,000 in career earnings. She paid $17.40 to win.

 

In order to be eligible to the Ontario Girls, the Ontario sired four-year-old pacing mares had to be non-winners of $60,000 lifetime as of October 31, 2015.

 

Despite a first-quarter break, War N Munn scored another impressive victory in the $17,000 second leg of The Count B Series.

 

Driven by Jonathan Drury, War N Munn got away fourth, but made a quick break heading towards the first turn and was brought to the outside. Once off the pylons and back pacing, Drury sent his charge to the lead in the second-quarter. War N Munn was mistake-free in the final three-quarters and cruised to a three-length victory in 1:55. Gotti finished second, while The Loan Ranger was third. Three Truths, who won a first leg division, finished fourth.

A three-year-old son of Stonebridge Regal, War N Munn is now two for two in The Count B Series and 2016. He is trained by Carmen Auciello for owner George Munniksma. War N Munn now has four career victories and earnings exceeding $60,000. He paid $3.10 to win.

In order to be eligible to The Count B, the three-year-old pacing colts and geldings had to be non-winners of three-races or $40,000 lifetime as of October 31, 2015.

Live racing has been cancelled for Saturday night at Woodbine Racetrack due to the projected extreme cold temperatures.

Live racing resumes Monday night (February 15). Post time is 7:30 p.m. (WEG)
