MILTON, ON - October 8, 2018 - Round one of the Harvest Series began, but didn't finish as Monday night's card at Woodbine Mohawk Park was cut short.

Heavy fog forced Monday's 10-race card to be abandoned following the third-race.

A pair of $17,000 first-leg divisions of the Harvest Series for Ontario sired two-year-old pacing fillies were to be contested. Only the first division was contested before the cancellation.

The second division will now take place ahead of Tuesday's card at 6:45 p.m. as a non-wagering event.

Sportswriter filly Green Point and driver Doug Brown captured the first division of the Harvest Series in 1:54.1. The Eric Adams trainee sat third until angling out on the far turn to get up to the leader's wheel at three-quarters.

Green Point paced home in :28.4 for the maiden-breaking victory. She is a homebred for Millar Farms and has now hit the board in four of eight starts, earning $17,500.

A $2 win ticket on Green Point returned $9.70.

Ontario sired two-year-olds, who were non-winners of $30,000 as of September 30, 2018, were eligible for nomination to the Harvest Series.

Live racing resumes Tuesday evening at 7:10 p.m. The non-wagering race to complete the Harvest Series leg for rookie pacing fillies will go to the gate at 6:45 p.m.
