SUMMERSIDE, PE - Woodmere Skyroller and Watch Me Dance were both on top of their games so far in their short careers and will go head-to-head in harness racing stakes action Wednesday evening at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway as Governor's Plate Week racing continues.

The Wednesday program has 10-dashes scheduled with a 6:30 P.M. first race post time. The Atlantic Sires Stakes two-year-old pacing fillies are the feature on the program as the rookie fillies make their career debuts in stakes action.

Woodmere Skyroller is favoured in race 8 of the program in an Atlantic Sires Stakes A-division with a $12,920 purse on the line with rail control for driver Gilles Barrieau, trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. The daughter of Rollwithitharry was second to an Ontario bred in her first overnight outing pacing in 2:00.1 but will have a rematch with the filly that beat in her in qualifying action. Watch Me Dance prevailed in that qualifier over Woodmere Skyroller with a 27.4 closing panel as the daughter of Ameripan Gigolo has post 5 in the field of six with Mark Bradley at the lines for trainer and co-owner Stephen Quinn and co-owner John Quinn of Charlottetown. Woodmere Nasha is selected for third with Kenny Arsenault driving from post 2.

The other $12,920 A-division lines up in race 6 with Howmacrivercruiser receiving top billing from post 4 with Barrieau in the bike for trainer Jackie Matheson and owner Howmac Farms of North Wiltshire. Other top entries include Tobins Choice (Driven by Gary Chappell) and Ezra Express (Marc Campbell).

Race 4 has the lone $2,500 Atlantic Sires Stakes B-division for two-year-old pacing fillies with a field of five.

The Rocket Chief Harvey and Randy MacEachern Memorial pace lines up in race 7 and Blacky Black is the top contender from post 6 for owner Ralph Harvey of Durham Bridge, N.B., trainer Ed Harvey and driver Norris Rogers.
