Charlottetown, PE - D GS Camme, last year's Governor's Plate and Premier's Pace champion, won the Saturday night feature harness racing event in 1:54 flat at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Gilles Barrieau was in the driver's seat for trainer Jackie Matheson and the ownership group of Quentin and Hal Bevan, Tom Clark and Ron Matheson, Charlottetown, PE.

Barrieau sent the favorite to the point from post five and laid down stiff fractions of 27, 56.1, 1:25.3 before cruising home in 28.2 seconds to notch his first victory of 2015 in only his second start of the campaign. All Turain, who was on the move early in the mile, was second for Corey MacPherson while Cabo Pan Lucas (Vince Poulton) was third.

MacPherson had a big night at the track with four winners on the card. The young pilot is off to an impressive start this year as he teams up with D&D Lawncare & Landscaping to raise money for PEI Human Society in the annual Drive for Charity promotion. MacPherson's victories came aboard Mob Rule for trainer Danny MacDonald, Pleasure Girls in the open trot for owner Shelley Gass, Cornwall followed by Torpedo Seelster to give Ron Gass a training double. The grand-slam came with Roscoes Child owned by the Selkirk Stable of Belfast, PE. Raymond White is the trainer.

In other action, Osprey Impact won her trot assignment for driver Paul Larrabee while Ramblinglily recovered after an early mis-cue to record back to back winning performances for Walter Cheverie. The time of the mile was 1:56.2.

Marc Campbell had a driving double on the 13 dash program.

The wager was $47,433.
