This year’s Town Pro Series at Mohawk Raceway has proved to be a wide-open affair considering four different horses managed to find their way to victory lane in the preliminary legs of the event.

Polk Dot Hanover, who rallied to finish fourth in last week’s opening leg of the series, cruised to an easy win in Friday’s second-leg assignment with driver Rick Zeron in tow. Polk Dot Hanover got away fourth and watched longshots Mystique Beachbum and Graceful Melody take turns on the lead through splits of :27.1, :57.1 and 1:25.2. Happily Ever After made a first-over bid around the final turn, and Polk Dot Hanover stalked that foe from second-over before rallying to the front when she was called on in deep stretch. Her :26.4 closing quarter helped her win by 3-1/2 lengths over Happily Ever After, with third prize going to Mystique Beachbum.

Sent off at odds of 8-5, the three-year-old daughter of Western Ideal-Paling Avenue won for the second time this season for trainer Dave Menary who shares ownership on the three-time winner with Brad Gray of Dundas and Michael Guerriero of Puslinch, Ontario. The filly’s share of the $18,000 purse boosted her bankroll to $51,320.
