A set of $8,500 divisions of the Autumn Series for two and three-year-old trotters kicked off opening night at The Raceway at Western Fair District, with sophomores Eddy and Kimco Kid winning their respective assignments.

Eddy stormed to the front and didn’t look back en route to capturing the first division in 2:03.1 for driver Scott Coulter.

The Chad Milner trainee left hard from Post 5 and cleared to the lead before slicing out splits of :30.1, 1:01.4 and 1:32.1. A :31-second closing quarter is all it took for Eddy to win by 1-3/4 lengths over odds-on favourite TLF Beware. Iam What I Am was third in the six-horse affair.

The gelded son of Windsong Espoir-Jolie Glide now boasts a 3-1-1 record from eight starts this season for owners Leonard Christopher and Zina Pallister.

Kimco Kid also used a ‘catch me if you can’ approach in capturing his division in 2:05.1 for driver Alfie Carroll.

The gelding, who departed from Post 2 in the five-horse contest, marched to the top and laid down panels of :31, 1:02.3 and 1:33.4. His :31.2 closing quarter earned him the win by a length over King For Life. Taking home the show dough was Never Tell.

Sent off as the 1-2 favourite, the son of Kadabra-Kimco Lady has manufactured a 2-3-0 record from 9 trips to the track this season for trainer Richard Moreau. The youngster is owned by Harbor Racing Stable LLC and Asa Farm.

The opening night card also featured a $9,000 Preferred 3 for horse and gelding pacers, and heavily favoured Boomboom Ballykeel delivered as the 1-9 favourite.

Alfie Carroll hustled Boomboom Ballykeel to the lead, and together they sliced out splits of :28.3, :59.2 and 1:30.1 before crossing the line in 2:06. The 1-1/16 mile affair saw Upgrade Valley and Bringhome Theblue round out the Trifecta ticket.

Richard Moreau trains the seven-year-old son of Mach Three-Teig N Riley for owner/breeder Ballykeel Racing of Tillsonburg, Ont. It was the fifth win of the season for the 34-time winner who lifted his lifetime earnings just shy of $900,000.
