SUMMERSIDE, PE - Screen Test put the finishing touches on a driving triple for Corey MacPherson in the Sunday afternoon harness racing feature at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

MacPherson tussled with Woodmere Ideal Art (Driven by Dale Spence) in the first fraction of 28.1 before clearing to the lead with Screen Test in the $2,900 preferred pace. The half was tripped in 57 before three-quarters in 1:25.4 but Screen Test continued to drive on and win by two-and-three-quarter lengths in 1:55. Soccer Hanover (David Dowling) finished second while newcomer Down On My Luck (Jason Hughes) used a first-over advance to finish third. Screen Test is trained by Stephen Gass for owners Kickin Horse Stable of York and William Andrew of Calgary, Alta.

MacPherson's other victories came with Adventure Luck in 2:00 for Robert Williams of Ellerslie and with Souverain in a 1:58.2 romp for Phil Sizer of Kensington.

Spence also scored three wins on the day including the $2,400 fillies and mares top class with Woodmere Finesse stopping the clock in 1:56.3. Jeff Lilley trains Woodmere Finesse for owner Ted Maher of Lower Sackville, N.S.

Trainer Paul Biggar of Tyne Valley supplied the start and finish of Spence's triple as Howmac Magic had a 2:00 victory in race 2 and Mando Fun was a 1:57.1 victor in race 6 for a $2,400 purse.
