TORONTO, May 2 - The Princess Series continued on Friday evening at Woodbine as 15 sophomore pacing fillies showcased their talent in a pair of $20,000 second round divisions.

Bahama Blue, driven by Jody Jamieson, captured the first split in 1:53.1 at odds of 9-1.

Jamieson and Bahama Blue were first to the front to lead at the quarter in :27.3, but then found themselves In The Pocket heading towards the half as heavily-favoured Rock N Roll Xample (James MacDonald) took over command.

Rock N Roll Xample would lead her six rivals past the half in :56.3 and 1:24.4.

Down the stretch Rock N Roll Xample and Bahama Blue separated themselves from their rivals, but it was Bahama Blue getting the upper-hand in deep stretch to win by a length. Artful Impulse (Randy Waples) finished third.

Trained and co-owned by Carl Jamieson along with David Shea and Thomas Kyron $88,540.

The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere posted her first victory in 2014 from four starts and enjoyed a new career best. She paid $20.70 to win.

After finishing second in the opening round last week, Take That Hanover and Mike Saftic redeemed themselves to take the second division in 1:53.2.

Saftic had the daughter of Well Said out quickest for command in the early stages, but allowed a parked-out Polk Dot Hanover (Jody Jamieson) to the lead at the opening quarter in :27.

The lead wouldn't last long heading towards the half as Take That Hanover was on the move again to lead past the half in :56.3 and three-quarters in 1:24.4.

Polk Dot Hanover angled to the outside for Jamieson at the three-quarter pole, but Take That Hanover quickly opened up on her rival and was a going-away winner in deep stretch to win by four and three quarter lengths. Wildcat Magic (Chris Christoforou) finished second with Lasting Appeal (Steve Condren) third.

Trained and owned by Jack Darling, Take That Hanover increased her career earnings to $62,909. She paid $4.70 to win.
