A new track record for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings was set on Sunday afternoon when Jackson K Down clocked an impressive 1:59 in Atlantic Sires Stakes racing action at the harness racing meeting at Inverness Raceway.

Brandon's Glory and driver Dale Spence won their 'A' division event for pacing colts and geldings, crossing the finish line in 2:01.4.

Cindy Gunn of Saint John, NB, co-shares ownership of the two-year-old bay pacing colt with Dale Spence.

The brown pacing gelding went wire to wire in 1:59.4 for owners Earith and George Riley of Kensington, PE.

MacDonald had a driving double on the afternoon race card, winning a $9760 'A' division event for two-year-old pacing fillies with her home bred West River Ambyr.
