Sunday was a day of “keeping the ball rolling” at Truro Raceway for a trio of high profile stars of Maritime racing who strutted their stuff on the 16-race program.

Allbentouttashape continued his domination of the two-year-old pacing colt and gelding division with a 1:58.2 triumph in the $40,175 final of the Maritime Breeders. With Kenny Arsenault at the lines the son of Quick Comeback-C A Lady laid down splits of :28.2, :58.4 and 1:28.2 en route to winning by more than three lengths in 1:58.2. Island Redemption was second best and Goin Large finished third.

Sean Dooley trains the gelding for the Dooley Boys Racing Stable of Halifax, NS. The victory helped the pacer improve his 2009 record to 12-3-0 in 15 attempts. The lion’s share of the purse bumped his earnings to $71,107.

Meridian Magic pushed her win streak to nine-in-a-row when she throttled her foes by close to seven lengths in the $38,720 final of the Maritime Breeders for two-year-old pacing fillies. The daughter of Largo-Hot Asset went coast-to-coast for trainer/driver Kenny Arsenault en route to posting the career-best clocking of 1:58.2. Second prize went to C H Yocoohno and Seawind Allegra grabbed the show dough.

Barry Martin and James Gillis of Sydney, NS share ownership on the precocious pacer, who was sent off as the 1-2 favourite. The victory gives her a 9-1-2 record in 12 starts this season and a bankroll that stands at $64,662.

It’s now nine straight wins for Scarlet Patti, who romped to an easy victory in the $10,896 final of the Maritime Breeders for two-year-old trotters. The daughter of PJs Nabby-Scarlet Nite took over command at the three-quarter pole and drew away to win by more than six lengths in a time of 2:06.2 for trainer/driver Darryl MacLean. Diamond Mine was the best of the rest and West River Ugo rounded out the top three.

Gordon MacLean of Winsloe, PE owns the homebred youngster, who has enjoyed a near perfect season. The victory was her 10th of the campaign in just 12 tries. She has never finished worse than second in her rookie year, and she has potted more than $32,000 in earnings in the process.
