Summerside, PE - The feature race at Red Shores Summerside was declared a no contest after the starting gate wing fell off at the beginning of the race. One of the entries, Outside the Wire, driven by Brodie MacPhee, suffered some scrapes and bruises in the mishap. There were no other injuries.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes for two and three-year-old trotters were in the spotlight during Lobster Festival Week. The stakes were presented by Meridian Farms.

Paymenowpaymelater, owned by Wade Peconi, Stachel, won the first two-year stake for Kenny Arsenault and trainer Earl Watts. The time of the mile was 2:07.4. JK Blaze and Walter Cheverie captured the second two-year-old division. Cheverie did the driving for owner, trainer Joe Smallwood, Stratford. Cheverie and Smallwood teamed up to win a three-year-old trot stake with JK Hustler. Seanchai also captured his $8,620 division for trainer Nicholas Oakes, driver Brodie MacPhee and Buntainwood Farm, Brackley Beach.
