Machinthesand in line to Norris Rogers used a first over journey to overpower fraction setter Motorino, to take the Wednesday harness racing feature at Red Shores Summerside.

The seven-year-old son of Mach Three positioned himself in the three-hole from post six before making his move just past the half and stopping the clock in 1:55.3. It was Machinthesand's six win of the season for the Noonan Holdings Ltd., Russell and Karen Noonan. Hughie Murphy handles the training duties. Motorino laid down fractions of :28,:58 and 1:26.3 and held tough to be second, Painted Desert picked up the show prize.

Veteran free-legged pacer Blu Meadow Willie added his name to an elusive category when he crossed the finish line first in Race 6. The 12-year-old son of Drop Off picked up his 60th lifetime victory in his 282nd lifetime start for co-owners Bob and Brenda MacInnis. Walter Cheverie engineered the winning trip getting up by a neck to win in 2:01.4.

Cheverie picked up the driving double scoring in Race 7 with the Alex Sobey trainee Sendmeasign. Corey MacPherson also scored a driving double, winning first with Minor Wisdom for Kristina McCourt and closing out the card with his own trainee Useful Hanover.
