CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - There was no stopping Sock It Away on a harness racing Boxing Day at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

With Corey MacPherson picking up the mount for trainer Kevin MacLean, the sophomore colt powered away from his preferred foes stopping the clock in 1:56 by over six open lengths in the $2,400 preferred pace. Tempo Seelster (Driven by Ken Murphy) sat second behind Sock It Away for the duration of the mile and finished second while Burn Out Hanover (Kenny Arsenault) completed the triactor. Reg MacPherson of Stratford, P.E.I., holds the ownership papers of the three-year-old colt who celebrated win number 19 of the season from 20 starts.

Talented rookie driver Drew Neill continued a very productive month of December as the Winsloe reinsman won three dashes on the 15-race program. Neill started the action off in race 1 finishing first in a dead-heat with Bettim Vicky in 2:02.1 for trainer Jeff Lilley. Selfie (Murphy) and Bettin Vicky both put their noses on the wire together for the win. Neill also visited the winner's circle with Southfield Sassy after a 2:00.3 win for trainer Tom Weatherbie. His third win of the day came as he captured the $2,350 Open Mares class with a 1:57.4 victory for trainer Jackie Matheson and owner Bruce Wood of Marshfield, P.E.I., over Prettyndangerous (David Dowling) and Malabrigo (Marc Campbell).

Campbell had a pair of winners from his own Charlottetown stable as he scored a maiden win with Navy Pilot Hanover in 2:03.3 and won the $1,800 Handicap Trot with Freddie in 2:03.4.
