Charlottetown, PE - Young harness racing reinsmen Adam Merner took full advantage of some live catch drives on Thursday night at Red Shores Charlottetown.

Merner celebrated a career night capturing a hat-trick on the card that included a victory in the evenings feature race. Veteran pacer Smiley Bayama may have been over shadowed by his driver's performance on the night but the 8 year-old Aces Up stallion picked up his fourth consecutive victory for owners Shelley and Alexis Gass. The Ron Gass trainee scored in 1:56.1. The duo of Merner and Gass also teamed up with Caliban Hanover earlier on the card.

Merner's third winner on the card was with Kyle Gillis trainee Windemere Stanley.

Marc Campbell trainee Freddie returned to winning form in the Open Trot, crushing his rivals in 1:59. Campbell handed the driving duties to assistant trainer Ryan Desroche for the Three Wiseman Stable. The first year pilot made no doubt about the catch-drive, engineering a first over journey before clearing up the back side and driving away with a :28.4 closing quarter.

A day shy of his birthday Gary Chappell picked up a driving double with trainee J J Dream Chasin and aboard Female Finesse.
