Scarborough, Maine - September 9, 2017 ... The three-year-old trotting divisions of the Maine Sire Stakes program anchored a late summer twilight harness racing card at Scarborough Downs on Saturday (9/9) with the track record setting performance of Lets Get It On stealing the headlines away from his fellow state-breds.

Lets Get It All pieced together yet another dominating performance on Saturday, easily taking top honors in the first of two $10,003 sophomore colt trotting splits, easily outdistancing the competition, while laying claim to his 7th seasonal win, timed in a lifetime equaling 1:59.1. That clocking was more than adequate enough to establishing a brand new divisional trotting record, supplanting the previous benchmark of 2:00 set by another Maine-bred, Noble Yaz, during the summer of 2016.

Now ensconced in the record books, the three-year-old son of Noble Venture-Bimmelibim was once again deftly driven by Ron Cushing for trainer Heidi Gibbs and the ownership group of Lucia Les, Kenneth Clairmont and Ron Cushing.

Happy Hooligan (N. Graffam) was second while King Cast (M. Athearn) finished third.

Top honors in the $10,003 second division went to Bruzin, who pieced together a faultless effort while fully capitalizing on the missteps of others as the Kim Ireland driven and trained entry stepped to a lifetime best 2:01.3 clocking.

The son of Musclini-Perpetual Notion laid claim to the early lead which quickly extended out to a margin of three lengths as three of the five starters rolled off stride before reaching the 1/8th pole. With the competition unable to make-up the spotted distance, Bruizn confidently marched first to the wire, while notching his 5th career victory for owners Dennis and Deborah Foss.

Pembroke Morgan (H. Campbell) overcame his early bobble to finish second while post time favorite Fox Cast (Wallace Watson) never really found his best stride on Saturday and settled for third.

Competition in the sophomore filly division has become rather a wide open matter since the recent sidelining of early season top point earner Fuzzy Sweater, and with just 4 weeks remaining until the $75,000 (+) final, the trotter able to gain the most late season momentum might well hold the upper hand.

Noble One is certainly stating her case as the most "right now" trotter as she scored her second win in a row on Saturday, trotting to a new lifetime speed record of 2:02.3, with driver/trainer Ivan Davies calling the shots from the sulky.

Owned by Douglas Hutchins, the daughter of Noble Venture-Demeter claimed her customary front end seat in the early going before coasting to her third win of the season, while claiming the lion's share of the $10,322 purse offering and simultaneously taking over first place in the seasonal point standings.

Knella Bella (M. Athearn) mounted an extended overland campaign to finish a determined second, while Just Like Linda (D. Campbell) parlayed the pocket journey to a third best showing.

Maine Sire Stakes action returns to Scarborough Downs on Sunday (9/10) as the three-year-old colt pacers will take center stage, on what will be the closing day of the 2017 summer season at the seaside oval.

Scarborough Downs' fall meet will commence on October 14 with racing featured on a Saturday and Sunday schedule with post time slated for 1:30 PM (EDT).
