The second leg of the Dream Maker Series for 2-year-old pacers was once again the Control The Moment show Monday night at Mohawk Racetrack. The son of Well Said scored his third straight victory to begin his career over five rivals in 1:52.3.
Driven by Randy Waples, Control The Moment got away in third and sat in that position until near the half-mile pole, at which point Waples gave the rookie pacer his cue to move up. The 3-5 favorite cleared to the front around the final turn and it was game over from there. Control The Moment cruised home in :28.2 to win by two lengths over Kokanee Seelster.
Adrian Hanover finished third, while Derecho was fourth.
A $47,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale graduate, Control The Moment has earned $19,000 in three starts for trainer Brad Maxwell, who shares ownership with Howard Taylor, Edwin Gold and Ben Mudry.
The clocking of 1:52.3 knocked more than a second off his previous mark. Control The Moment paid $3.40 to win.
The Maxwell trainee will now have a chance for a series sweep next Monday in the $36,400 final. (WEG)
