Libertys Best Star notched his fifth straight victory on Friday at Woodbine Racetrack with a tough front-end effort in the evening's seventh race.

Sent postward as the 5-2 favourite in the full field of $8,000 claiming pacers, Libertys Best Star ($7.10) front-stepped his way to a 1:54.2 victory with Jonathan Drury in the sulky. The 35-time career winner prevailed by three-quarters of a length over Duke Did It (Chris Christoforou) in 1:54.2 with a from-last First Impression (Sylvain Filion) closing for third-place honours.

The six-year-old son of Cammibest is now six-for-seven this year. He was claimed for $5,000 two starts ago on Jan. 26 at Flamboro Downs by Jonah Moase of Cornwall, P.E.I. and is trained by Thomas Riley.

Drury, who won four times on Friday's 11-race card, also teamed up with Riley to win the third race aboard Mopey Corey. His other winners were Rock N Roll Xample for trainer Shawn Robinson and Laneside Lexus for conditioner Corey Johnson.
