SUMMERSIDE, PE - Woodmere Skyroller was determined to land in the winner's circle and made the front end hold up in her Atlantic Sires Stakes harness racing division Wednesday evening at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway as part of Governor's Plate Week racing.

With Gilles Barrieau at the lines, Woodmere Skyroller guarded the rail in her $12,920 Atlantic Sires Stakes A-division for two-year-old filly pacers and marched through fraction of 30.3, 1:01.4 and 1:32.3. While the filly tripped those splits her biggest rival, Watch Me Dance (Driven by Mark Bradley), sat in the pocket. Watch Me Dance took her charge down the stretch but Woodmere Skyroller held her off in a neck decision for trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. Third place went to Woodmere Nasha (Kenny Arsenault).

Ezra Express found the wire first in the other $12,920 A-division with a 2:03.4 score for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Danica Ellis of Brookfield, N.S. Tobins Choice (Gary Chappell) was second with Howmacrivercruiser (Barrieau) finishing third.

The $2,500 Atlantic Sires Stakes B-division went to Saulsbrook Ocean and driver Dale Spence stopping the clock in 2:04.1 for trainer Joe Baxter and owner Al McNeil of Windsor, N.S., and Louis Willinger of Louisville, Kentucky.

In overnight racing action, Medici Hanover scored a 20-length romp in race 2 as the three-year-old daughter of Sportswriter won in 1:55.1 to tie the track record for sophomore fillies held by Elm Grove Inarush. David Dowling supplied the driver for trainer Don Milligan and owner Kent Williams of Ellerslie, Andrew Williams of Richmond and Lyndon Hardy of Coleman.

Top Of The Morning scored a mild upset in The Rocket Chief Harvey and Randy MacEachern Memorial pace in a 2:00.1 score for trainer-driver Kyle Gillis of Charlottetown.
