Trotting filly Scarlet Patti avenged one of her two lifetime losses by returning to the scene of one of those defeats, Truro Raceway, and extending her win streak to eight during Maritime Breeders Elimination action on Sunday afternoon.

Trainer-driver Darryl MacLean used rail position to take the lead early and play catch-me-if-you-can. As has been the case this year for the majority of the year, no one could. Scarlet Patti rolled to a two-plus length victory in 2:07.1 for owner Gord MacLean of Winsloe, PEI.

In 11 starts this season, Scarlet Patti (PJs Nabby - Scarlet Night) has nine wins and two second-place finishes with over $26,000 banked.

Red Pajamas (Ken Arsenault) finished second, with Unstoppable Image (Ronnie Gass) and Murray M (Garth Cole) completing the top four.

The other $1,500 Maritine Breeders elim went to Glencove Umay (Bo W - Butterscotchsundae) and trainer-driver-owner Carl Bagnall, who wired up his five foes in 2:11.1. Also qualifiying for next week's final were West River Ugo (Clare MacDonald), Keiths Daisy (Gary Chappell) and Diamond Mine (Gilles Barrieau).

Also avenging an earlier loss at Truro and rolling to an eighth straight win was two-year-old pacing filly Meridan Magic (Largo - Hot Asset), a confident wire-to-wire winner in 2:00 for trainer-driver Ken Arsenault. Barry Martin and James Gillis of Sydney, NS hold the papers on the talented two-year-old, now with eight wins in 11 tries with over $45,000 stashed away.

Stablemate C H Yoccoohno (Barrieau) finished in second with J J Solara (MacDonald) and Sewind Allegra (Danny Romo) also advancing.

We B Success, a homebred of Riley Farms Ltd and Earith Riley of Summerside, PE found the winner's circle in the other elimination, pocket-riding her way to victory for Clare MacDonald in a time of 2:00.4. Favoured Charlottes Coast (Crowe) was a nose back in second with Putnams Dough Girl (Bernie McCallum) and R Es Miss Jen (Jason Hughes) in third and fourth respectively.

Allbentouttashape continued to dominate his division with his 11th win of the freshman campaign in 14 starts, this one a 1:59.2 wire-to-wire score in his $3,000 elimination for trainer Sean Dooley and driver Ken Arsenault. Owned by the Dooley Boys Racing Stable of Halifax, NS., the Quick Comeback - C A Lady gelding surpassed $50,000 in lifetime earnings and has yet to finish worse than second, sporting three place finishes to go with those 11 wins.

Finishing behind Allbentouttashape were Island Redemption (Barrieau), Grayland Spider (Romo) and T M Top Gun (Crowe).

The Paul Doyle-owned and trained homebred Dr Alexander B (Western Success - Heshe Gal) captured the other division for driver Shane Bernard in a lifetime best 1:59 over Goin Large (Crowe), Comebacks Sir Tax (Arsenault) and Grayland Hill (Romo).

Harness racing action returns to the Truro oval for the Maritime Breeders Furity finals next Sunday.
