Rinaldo 'Neldie' MacDonald and his two-year-old colt Jigtime Jones (Western Paradise) crossed the finish in 2:00 in their division. MacDonald of Antigonish, NS, shares ownership on the colt with Ian Tate of St. Andrews, NS.

The final 'A' division event on the card went to Tobinator (Coastocoast Yankee) and driver Ryan Ellis. The duo came home in an impressive 1:58 for owners Robin Burke, Luke Burke, Perry Burke and Kent Livingstone.

Two $2500 'B' division events rounded out the card going to IC A Free Spirit and Matts Tuition.
