The harness racing driver-trainer duo of Brian MacPhee and Bert Honkoop had some luck at Inverness Raceway on Sunday, with the pair capturing two Atlantic Sires Stakes - Meridian Farms sponsored events on the afternoon race card.

B J Classic (Meadowagogo) won his three-year-old trot event with MacPhee handling the driving duties for the Bert Honkoop owned and trained bay gelding. Meanwhile B J Lorado (Bo W) took the MacPhee - Honkoop pair to the winner's circle again with a win in his two-year-old trot event.

Majian Tango (Tad The Stud) and driver-trainer James Ripley won the other two-year-old trot event for owner Marylea Ripley of Amherst, NS.

Mr Bower (Meadowagogo) and driver-trainer Kenny Arsenault crossed the finish line first in their three-year-old trot event for owner Wade Peconi of Stanchel, PE.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes two-year-old pacing fillies also had their turn to shine at Inverness on Sunday with two $9600 events on the race card. Filly Forty Seven (Proven Lover)  and Marc Campbell won their event in 2:00.1 for owners Darryl MacLean, Katelyn Smallwood, Cory Carver and Tanya Tremblett.

Campbell paid another visit to the winner's circle with Elektra Express (Western Paradise). This was the third straight Atlantic Sires Stakes win for the two-year-old pacing filly owned by Danica Ellis of Brookfield, NS. The filly is now the leading point earner in the two-year-old filly division.
