MILTON, ON - August 6, 2019 - Somebeachsometime stormed by rivals in the stretch to win Tuesday's second leg of the Whenuwishuponastar Series at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

The two-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere paced home in :26.3, part of a :53.3 back-half, to come from sixth for the stunning victory in the second leg of the three-week event.

Driven by Jody Jamieson, Somebeachsometime got away last in the field of seventh and remained in that position at the midway point. Even-money choice Caviart Jane moved to the top from third in the second-quarter and led the field by the half in :56.

Caviart Jane paced a solid :28.1 third-quarter to lead the field into the stretch. Meanwhile, Jamieson moved to the outside approaching three-quarters to sit just over seven-lengths from the top.

The stretch drive saw Caviart Jane hold a clear lead at the eighth-pole, but the far outside saw a pair of fillies charging. Lady Lou, who was second-over and five-lengths off at three-quarters, was making up ground late, but Somebeachsometime was storming up just a bit quicker.

Caviart Jane surrendered the lead late and watched Somebeachsometime prevail by a head over Lady Lou in 1:52.1. Libspeak finished fourth.

Trained by Dave Menary, Somebeachsometime was a $65,000 Harrisburg Yearling Sale purchase and is the first foal out of Well Said mare Talk Time. She finished fourth in her debut last week, pacing home in :26 and now has a victory and $8,700 earned for owners Menary Racing Inc, Michael Guerriero, Kenneth Ewen and Bruce Norris.

A $2 win ticket on Somebeachsometime returned $4.80.

Round one winners Alexa Skye and Reflect With Me did not compete in the second leg. The $50,000 series final will take place next Tuesday (August 13).

Live racing resumes Thursday evening at Mohawk Park. Post time is 7:10 p.m.
