The second leg of the Dream Maker Series for two-year-old pacers was once again the Control The Moment show Monday night at Mohawk Racetrack.

The two-year-old 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 favourite 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.
