Its A Go made it two wins in a row as he circled the top pacers at Rideau Carleton Raceway on Sunday night in a season's best 1:53 mile.

Its A Go trailed the field of six in the co-featured Winners Over Handicap Pace until trainer/driver Stephane Pouliot sent him on the move at the half and moved up to catch the cover of D Gs Woodstock. Sent postward as the favourite after winning against Rideau's top pacers for the first time last week, Its A Go kicked home in :28.3. With the jump start on third over Scotty Mach N, he prevailed over that foe by a quarter-length. Sovereign Wealth finished two lengths behind in third after blasting out of the gate from post six into a :26-opener and leading through middle splits of :55.1 and 1:23.4.

Its A Go paid $6.50 to win. The six-year-old Camluck gelding is owned by Margaret Brazeau of Osgoode, Ont. He has won 10 of his 25 starts this year and 31 races lifetime. The lion's share of the $6,500 purse sent his career earnings over the $100,000 mark.

Also a winner last time out two weeks ago, Maximuscle overcame an assigned outside post eight start and prevailed in the matching trotting class.

Keystone Wyatt and Tymal Colossus traded turns on the front-end through opening fractions of :27.1 and :57.1 before driver Stephane Lareau made the winning move aboard Maximuscle. After settling into third behind the duelling leaders early on, Lareau sent the four-year-old Angus Hall gelding first over down the backstretch to take over command at the 1:26.4 third quarter mark and then held off the oncoming favourite, Unabating, by a head for the 1:57.3 victory. Michelangelo finished over two lengths behind in third.

Maximuscle paid $5.80 to win as the slight second choice. The Maxime Velaye trainee is now six-for-seven on the season. A 19-time career winner, Maximuscle boasts over $185,000 in earnings for owner/breeder Ecurie Provoquante of Mirabel, Que.

Jamie Copley had a training triple on Sunday's 12-race card, winning with Doing Some Damage and F Twenty Two, both driven by Darrell Coville in back-to-back races, and Curator in rein to Ted McDonald
