'Ty' And 'Tyne' Steal The Show

Paymenowpaymelater's unbeaten streak was halted at nine by Windemere Ty Thursday night in a division of the $8,000 Blair Andrew Memorial Trot for two-year-olds.

Driver Jack Panting blasted the son of Nureyev-Windemere Spirit from the Post 4 and the duo grabbed the early lead. With the bettor's choice, Paymenowpaymelater, also pushing forward, Panting allowed driver Kenny Arsenault to clear after an opening quarter of :30.3.

Arsenault continued to roll over to the half in an unheard of 1:00.1 with Panting and Windemere Ty nose-to-helmet in the pocket, they moved out at the three-quarters in 1:33.3 and from their it was strictly a race for place as Windemere Ty drew away to win by six in 2:06.1.

The win made it four-in-a-row for the ownership tandem of Panting and his grandfather, Ralph Annear, who handles the training duties. Dusty Lane Jacob drove in for second while Paymenowpaymelater held for third. The win was part of a driving double for Panting who also won with Glencove Uday.

In the second division, Mike Stevenson and Tyne Valley made every call a winning one stopping the clock in 2:03.1, erasing a near 19-year-old track record for two-year-old trotting fillies. She laid down splits of :31, 1:01.3 and 1:32.3 before kicking home in :30.3 to hold off a hard-closing Suicide Shift by a nose.

The win moved Tyne Valley a step closer to $20,000 on yearly earnings for owners Bill and Scott Roloson along with Kristi Pickering.

Forever Paradise, in rein to the 'King' Marc Campbell, took his assignment in 1:56. The four-year-old son of Western Paradise has been on a roll since returning to the Island. He has three victories and a pair of seconds through six starts for owner Reg MacPherson and trainer Kevin MacLean. Campbell picked up a driving double winning with Hot Shot Dragon one race earlier.

Driver Walter Cheverie picked up a hat-trick on the card winning with a pair of Joe Smallwood trainees, he got the ball rolling with J K Hustler and closed out his night with the iron tough J K Special. He won with Maiden Heaven in her first start for trainer Jonah Moase.

The Jackie Matheson Stable has been heating up as of late, fresh off of three victories on Saturday night, he bounced back with a training double on Thursday. His first win came with Ilava with father Ronnie aboard, and later in the card he handed the lines to uncle Gordie Hennessey who delivered Oakrock Almighty back to the winner’s circle.
