Rod Starkewski enjoyed a successful Saturday at Northlands Park with a training triple early on the 11-race program.

Starkewski won his first start of the day in the second race with his homebred pacer Getup Gideon ($21) riding the rail to upset 3-5 favourite Lizard King with Phil Giesbrecht working out the winning trip. The Lamont, Alberta horsemen scored back-to-back victories with Outlawburntpopcorn ($9.20) prevailing from the pocket over the favoured Senseless Beauty in rein to Dave Kelly. Both Getup Gideon and Outlawburntpopcorn are owned by the veteran trainer.

Shes All Mine ($40.60) was another longshot winner for Starkewski a couple races later as Kelly sent the Terry Yuck-owned mare wire-to-wire in the fifth.

Starkewski's training triple put him in the win column for the 2018 season following a career-best campaign in which his stable earned $383,979 in purses.

Kelly made a fourth trip to victory lane in Saturday's finale with the Shawna Griffin-trained Art The Third. Giesbrecht ended the day with three driving wins.
