Charlottetown, PE - The Maritime Breeders finals for harness racing three-year fillies and colts is now in the history books. The rich finals were held Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Glory Jean, owned by Blair Hansen, Charlottetown, PE and trained by Tom Weatherbie, won the Ken Starratt memorial for three-year old fillies in line to Mark Bradley in 1:57.2. Bradley put the daughter of Brandons Cowboy on the point and rolled through fractions of 28.1, 58.2, 1:27.4 to claim the $25,420 final. Maudail Mac (Ken MacDonald) was second with Southfield Sassy (Terry Gallant) third. Race favorite Howmacscanasta made a break and finished eighth.

Heart and Soul, with Clare MacDonald in the bike, captured the Doug Harkness memorial $21,430 colts final in 1:55.1. The son of Western Paradise, owned by Earith and George Riley, Kensington, held off Jackson K Down (Gilles Barrieau) for the victory with Lukes Cowboy (Kenny Arsenault) closing for third.

In other action, trainer Jackie Matheson enjoyed at big night at the office sending four horses to winner's circle including top class performer DGS Camme (Barrieau) in 1:55 flat. The two-time winner of the Governor's plate, owned by Quentin and Hal Bevan, Tom Clark and Ron Matheson, Charlottetown, turned away Forever Paradise (Mike McGuigan) for the score. Narragansett (Jason Hughes) was third. The other Matheson stable winners were Perfect Escape, Mozartsplace and Santiago Style.
