CAMPBELLVILLE, August 14 - Homen Dry converted off a second over trip to win the second leg of the Define The World Series on a cool Thursday summer night at Mohawk.

A field of eleven contested the second leg of the trotting series for two-year-old trotters.

Jetpedia, the leg one winner, took the most support at the windows going off as the 4/5 favourite and got away third after leaving from post seven.

On the way to the half, Jetpedia was sent to the lead by driver Mike Saftic and cleared to the front before the mid-way point.

Around the final turn, Boli made a first up bid allowing driver Chris Christoforou and Homen Dry to pick up cover and sit in a striking second over position coming off the final turn.

In the stretch, Jetpedia continued to trot strong, but in the final sixteenth of the mile, Homen Dry grinded down the favourite and overtook the lead to break his maiden in 1:57.

Boli was also able to get by Jetpedia to finish second, a half length behind the winner.

Homen Dry, who is trained by Brad Maxwell, had finished second in his first two starts, including a runner-up finish in the opening leg of the Define The World.

A son of Credit Winner - Beyond Blue Chip, Homen Dry is owned by Maxwell, Doug Millard, Paul Van Camp and Howard Taylor.

Homen Dry sold for $19,000 at last fall's Harrisburg Sale. He paid $18.70 to win.

The final of the Define World Series will take place next Thursday night (August 21) at Mohawk.
