CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Hop Up solidified herself as the greatest harness racing trotting mare in the history of Atlantic Canadian harness racing as she rewrote the record books again Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. In line to Corey MacPherson, the daughter of Tad The Stud cut out all the fractions in the $2,500 Open trot and hung on for a 1:57.1 Charlottetown track record and Atlantic Canadian record for aged trot mares. The trip lowered the previous record of 1:57.2 set by Osprey Impact in 2016.

Clare MacDonald was in the driver's seat behind her trainee for owner Arnold Rankin of Antigonish, N.S. The trip tied the three-year-old track trotting record set by Gettin Messi in 2019 as well as the overall three-year-old Maritime record that is co-held by Tequila Tuesday, who had an identical 1:58.3 trip in Summerside earlier this season. In two-year-old P.E.I. Colt Stakes action, Dusty Lane Milo finally got the better of Mr Finlay Ridge to snap the latter's win streak in 2:04.1 in their $6,000 division. It was win number three in a row for Dusty Lane Milo and driver Adam Merner, trainer Ron Gass and owner Marsha Knox of Stanhope. A Little Go Go claimed the other $6,000 rookie trot split in 2:02.4 for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Benefitting from the absence of Mr Finlay Ridge, Dusty Lane Milo has put together a two-race win streak but the pair will collide again Thursday evening in the P.E.I.

In the other $6,000 rookie colt split in race 1, A Little Go Go is the most experienced in the field from the Marc Campbell stable for owner Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S.
