Fresh faces found the winner's circle in Saturday's featured events at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

A field of five in the $1,950 Open Trot was reduced to four with the late scratch of Majian Tango. Steve Shepherd sent Suicide Shift to the front of the compact quartet and made every call a winning one as the longest shot on the board. After powering through fractions of :31.1, 1:02.2 and 1:34.1, a final quarter of :30.1 was enough to hold off favoured Dusty Lane Jacob (Adam Merner) by a length and a quarter in 2:04.2.

Harold Shepherd trains and owns six-year-old Suicide Shift (Pjs Nabby - Southwind Bethany) along with Margo Fisher of Fredericton, N.B. The win was the 16th in the trotter's career, lifting his bankroll to $48,515.

The complexion of the $2,350 Fillies & Mares Open Pace changed dramatically when favoured Prettyndangerous made a break early to take her out of contention. That opened the door for Dustlanemissmolly to go coast-to-coast for her first win at the open level. Myles Heffernan Sr. used rail control to set the tempo through panels of :30.1, 1:00.4 and 1:31.2 before sprinting home in :29 over the off track to trip the timer in 2:00.2, more than two lengths better than Collective Wisdom (Drew Neill).

Dustlanemissmolly (Brandons Cowboy - The Boss Daughter) now sports 21 lifetime victories and more than $133,000 in purse earnings for trainer Myles Heffernan Jr. and owner Jackie Heffernan of Glace Bay, N.S.
