Woodmere Skyroller laid in waiting and found herself a newly minted track record holder in the Atlantic Aged Pacing Mares Series final on Sunday afternoon (Oct. 3) at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

Driver Corey MacPherson was patient in the $15,617 Atlantic Aged Pacing Mares Final presented by Standardbred Canada as Woodmere Skyroller sat third while race favourite Dreamfair Zenfire (driven By Marc Campbell) laid out splits of :27.4, :56.3 and 1:24.4. Woodmere Skyroller got rolling at that third station and ground out the victory by a head in 1:53.1, rewriting the former 1:54 aged pacing mare track record held by All Chocolate. Kevin MacLean trains the winning mare for owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford, P.E.I.

The day featured a pair of $23,100 Lady Slipper Gold divisions for three-year-old pacing fillies with Mystifying winning the fastest split in 1:55.3 for driver Gilles Barrieau, trainer and co-owner Darryl MacLean and partners Gordon MacLean and Stephen Downey.

Tobins Brownie won the other Gold division in 1:56 for trainer/driver David Dowling and owners Carl Peterson, Alex Quinn, Amy Lakie and Brittany Watts.

The lone $11,575 Lady Slipper Grassroots division for sophomore fillies was won by Stonebridge Search (Ken Murphy) in 1:58.1.

Lady Slipper two-year-old trot action saw wins by the streaking Up Helly Aa (Ken MacDonald) in 2:03.4 and Gettin Allfiredup (Campbell) in 2:04.4 in the $12,350 divisions.

Dusty Lane Milo (Barrieau) won a $12,115 Lady Slipper three-year-old trot division in 2:02.1 while the other split was claimed by Fireball Friday (Myles Heffernan Sr.) in 2:06.3.

Sunday's $3,200 Preferred 2 Pace went to Woodmere Ideal Art (Jason Hughes), who notched his third win in a row with a 1:56.4 effort.
