Atlantic Sires Stakes two and three-year-old trotters provided exciting harness racing action at Inverness Raceway on Wednesday evening, including setting a new track record for three-year-old trotters.

Dusty Lane Galaxy took the new track record when he crossed the finish line in 2:03.4 with driver-trainer Gary Chappell in the bike. The bay trotting gelding is owned by Peter Buchanan, North Wiltshire, PE and the Estate of George Boswall, Frenchfort, PE.

The other three-year-old trot event on the evening card went to B J Comanche and driver Clare MacDonald in 2:04.2 for owner-trainer Bert Honkoop of Montague PE.

The two-year-old trotters also had a chance to shine as Tyne Valley and driver Mike Stevenson captured first place honours in their event in 2:11.1 for owners William and Scott Roloson, Belfast, PE and Kristi Pickering, Charlottetown, PE.

The second two year-old trotting event went to Paymenowpaymelater and driver Kenny Arsenault in 2:06.4 for owner Wade Peconi of Stanchel, PE.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes trotting events across the Maritimes are presented by Meridian Farms.

Not to be out done by the trotters, the two-year-old pacing fillies also strutted their stuff at the Inverness oval.

Woodmere Dancenart and driver-trainer Clare MacDonald won their 'A' division event in 2:01.2 for owners Morah Kerr, Greenfield, NS and Phonsie MacEachern, Port Hood, NS.

The other 'A' division event on the race card went to Jann Down and driver Gilles Barrieau in 2:01.4 for the Downey Stables of Quispamsis, NB.

I Can Do Anything crossed the finish line first in the lone 'B' division event with owner-driver-trainer Keith Ford in the bike. Gordon Neill of Charlottetown, PE, shares the ownership papers on the two-year-old filly.

Atlantic Sires Stakes racing action heats up again this weekend as a full slate of events will take place during Old Home Week at Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park.
