TORONTO, December 13 - The $15,000 opening round of the Valedictory Series highlighted the Friday card at Woodbine with J C Onthebeach capturing the fastest of two divisions.

Driven by Jonathan Drury, J C Onthebeach earned himself a new lifetime best as he got under the wire first in 1:52.2.

The gelded son of Somebeachsomewhere was first to the front at the opening station in :27, but allowed a parked-out Tauranga (Chris Christoforou) to clear to the position of command heading to the half.

Drury quickly regained the front, but was in the pocket once again as heavily-favoured Americhi (Jody Jamieson) took control past the half in :56.

Americhi would continue to lead past three-quarters in 1:23.4 and into the stretch, but couldn't fend off a late challenge from J C Onthebeach in deep stretch. Yucatan (Randy Waples) finished third.

Trained by Therese Vrablic for owner Bruce Soulsby, J C Onthebeach is a perfect two-for-two since arriving in the Vrablic barn.

The pacing sophomore celebrated his seventh career tally as his bankroll now sits at $45,034.

He paid $10.80 to win.

In the other split, favoured Alexas Jackpot and Jody Jamieson stopped the timer in 1:53.3.

Jamieson put Alexas Jackpot in the three-hole in the early stages as Avatartist (Mike Saftic) wanted command from the post one to lead past the opening quarter in :27.3.

Saftic and Avatartist would continue to lead past the half in :56.3, before Alexas Jackpot began the first-over journey.

Avatartist marched past three-quarters in 1:25.1, but Alexas Jackpot was hot on his heels down the stretch and eventually wore down the tempo-setter en route to victory. Hes A Sensation (Phil Hudon) came from off-the-pace to finish second, with Pappys Pal (Keith Oliver) finishing third.

Trained and co-owned by Marty Fine along with Highland Thoroughbred Frm, Alexas Jackpot enjoyed his fifth career score as his bankroll climbed to $56,700. The son of Million Dollar Cam now has a 5-3-2 record from 16 starts this season.

He paid $3.60 to win.

The Valedictory Series is for three-year-old colts and geldings, who are non-winners of $50,000 lifetime as of October 31.

The second $15,000 leg will go postward on Friday, December 20. The $30,000 (added) final will take place on Boxing Day (December 26), which holds a special 1:00 p.m. first-race post time.
