Tell All notched his second straight and third overall victory of the season with another dominant score in Saturday night\'s second round of the Diplomat Pacing Series for 3-year-old colt and gelding pacers at Woodbine Racetrack.

The son of Real Desire - Have No Secrets flashed early speed in the first $25,000 division in race one and set all the fractions for the first time in his brief career. Driver Jody Jamieson had him idling through easy splits of :26.4, :57.1 and 1:26.4 before pressing on the accelerator and stepping away from his rivals with a :26.4 final frame
to stop the clock in 1:53.2.

Radio City rallied for the place spot with Crown Heights finishing third.

Tell All, who is eligible to this year\' Pepsi North America Cup at Mohawk, is now three for seven in his first season at the races. Blair Burgess does the training for the My Desire Stable of Versailles, Ky.

In the third race, second division, it was Mocha Latte using a two-move effort to win in 1:52.2 for driver Mario Baillargeon. The black colt is also a son of Real Desire from the On The Road Again mare Cafeuccino.

Mocha Latte left sharply from post five and took command past the opening quarter in :26.2. He then yielded to an onrushing Almost No More
BS right at the half in :55.3. Baillargeon kept his charge right up on the leader\'s helmet as the field reached the third panel in 1:24.

When they straightened up for home, Mocha Latte came back out for the stretch drive and surged past for his second win of the campaign. He was just a head better than Priceless Edition who was second. M G Energik picked up the show spot.

The mile was a lifetime best clocking for Mocha Latte who is trained by Mark Ford for owner Roger Hammer of Bedford, Pa.

The $76,000 (Est.) Diplomat Pacing Series Final goes next Saturday night at Woodbine. (WEG)
