Foxyhall racing stable from Summerside, PE enjoyed a big night at the track with two of their stable stars, Si Semalu and Thunderaway, winning their respective assignments at the harness racing meeting on Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Si Semalu, under the command of driver Jason Hughes, was sent right to the lead from the rail and never looked back on route to a 1:55.4 clocking in the evening's feature event.

The five- year-old son of Modern Art rolled through splits of 28.3, 58.4 and 1:27.3.

Cabo Pan Lucas (Danny MacDonald) was second with Forever Paradise (Mike McGuigan) completing the triactor.

Newcomer Thunderaway and Hughes were a two and half length winner in the first of two open trots carded on the program.

The mare notched her 26th lifetime victory and her first on Island soil.

Foxyhall racing also recorded a third place finish with Sam It Again Sam in The Class of 1958 St. Dunstan's University pace won by Perfect Escape in a dazzling 1:56 flat for Walter Cheverie.

Cheverie, who had two winners on the program, did the driving for owners Jack Keenan, Stratford, PE and Joseph Dahl, Burlington, Ontario.

Another newcomer to the Island racing ranks, Strike A Light, won the second open trot in 1:59.4 for driver Norris Rogers and trainer Blaine McKenna.

Mike Stevenson had a driving double on the 12 dash program scoring with The Big Bite for trainer Thane Arsenault and the ownership group of Jack Arsenault, Charlottetown, Donna McIver, York, Edward Blaisdell, Montague and Deborah Wilson, Elmsdale, NS.

The second score came with Shellys Man for owner Michael Collings, Charlottetown and trainer Gerald MacDougall.
