Some people enjoy certain days of the week and right now Thursdays have been pretty good to driver Louis Philippe Roy.

The Mont-Joli, Que., reinsman steered five winners on Thursday’s 10-race program at Woodbine Racetrack. It was the second consecutive Thursday that  Roy captured five races.

Roy, who had a drive in all 10 races, made back-to-back trips to the winner’s circle in the evening’s second and third races. He first guided claiming pacer Kinda Like Her to a 7-1 upset for Stephen Charlton and then followed that up by finding the line first with Richard Moreau-trained 3-year-old trotting filly Oceanview Deb at 5-1.

The "Hat-Trick" victory for  Roy came in the sixth race behind 3-year-old trotting filly and overwhelming favorite Highland Top Hill ($3.20) for Marty Fine.

Roy completed the evening by sweeping the late-double with Moreau-trained 6-year-old pacer Kingsley B ($6.30) and Vernon Cochrane trained claiming pacer Jet Black Cadillac ($17.90)

Oceanview Deb and Highland Top Hill were repeat winners for  Roy from last week.

Roy has won 14 races over the last five-cards of racing at Woodbine. He now has 271 wins on the season at Woodbine/Mohawk and is second in the circuit’s driver standings behind Doug McNair (291).

Recently named a finalist for the USHWA Rising Star Award,  Roy will look to keep things rolling with seven drives on Friday evening. (WEG)
