Published: October 4, 2017 09:11 pm EDT

Allstar Seelster played a game of 'catch me if you can' in the Wednesday night (October 4) feature at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway and was successful as he shocked his rivals.

The Ed Harvey trainee was sent to the front by driver Norris Rogers and never looked back in a huge upset in the $2,100 featured event. Allstar Seelster led through fractions of :27.2, :57, and 1:26.1 before closing the mile out in 1:57.2. Old Buck (Jason Hughes) finished second and Machinthesand (Ken Murphy) was third.

The winning pacer is also owned by Harvey, and paid a whopping $71.70 for a $2 win ticket while the triactor paid out at 4-3-all for $121.50. It was the second win of the night for the combination of Harvey and Rogers.

The top driver in Island racing only had one win on the Wednesday program, but that was all it took to land him a career milestone. Marc Campbell teamed up to win with Rising Fella in 1:59.1 for trainer Jansen Sweet of O’Leary; the Winsloe reinsman scored win number 1,900 of his career.

Hughes had a solid night at the office as he had three winners on the program, including the $1,800 back-up pace with a front-end score of 1:58.1 aboard Ultimatelyhandsome. The son of Western Paradise is owned by the Ultimate Stable and trained by Sifroi Melanson. Hughes’ other winners were Delightful Nights in 2:04.1 for trainer Blaine McKenna and Sir Native from his own stable in 2:01.4.

Goliath Reigns had the fastest mile of the night, winning the evening finale in 1:56 for driver Dale Spence and trainer Dawn Ellis Abbott.

Ken Murphy had two driving wins on the program.
