The 2016 edition of the Atlantic Classic was held Friday (October 7) at the Crapaud Exhibition Grounds and the yearling sale was a record-setting day, smashing all previous records.

The annual Standardbred sale grossed almost $800,000, over $100,000 above previous highs, with a Maritime record average price of $8,396. The top five selling trotters in regional history went through the ring at Crapaud, leading to a trot average price of nearly $9,000.

"The trot prices reflected the tremendous support of the regional trot stakes program by Meridian Farms," stated Sale Manager Wayne Pike.

The top selling trotter was Windmeredontuworry, purchased by Terry Gallant of Summerside, P.E.I. for $11,000.

Meridian also generously donated 100 per cent of the sale proceeds of their Armbro Barrister son A Pure Heart to the Crapaud Fire Department. The chestnut colt was purchased by Boyd MacDonald Produce of Crepaud, P.E.I. for $9,000.

The overall sale topper was a sharp-looking Articulator filly, Woodmere Saphire, a full sister to multiple stakes winner Woodmere Soul, who was purchased by Tom McGuffog of Fredericton, N.B. for $25,000.

Also selling at the top of the sale was Doublejacksandaces, a Shadow Play son purchased by Donald MacRae of Vernon Bridge, P.E.I. for $20,000, Big Talking Man, a Big Jim son purchased by Kevin Harvey of Hammonds Plains, N.S. for $20,000, and Shadow Play son Dark Shadow selling for $19,500 to Dan MacIsaac of Charlottetown.
