Applying off the pace tactics was the key to victory for Screen Test and driver Corey MacPherson in the Thursday evening feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Morning line favourite ER Quinn (Driven by Gilles Barrieau) set the early tempo in the $2,500 event with even splits of 29.4, 1:00.1 and 1:30.1 with Dream On Dream On (David Dowling) advancing first over. Screen Test took the cover second over and mowed down his rivals in the stretch drive for a half-length victory in 1:58.3. ER Quinn hung on for second with Dream On Dream On third.

Trainer-driver Campbell came back later in the card as Freddie won the top trot of the night for a $2,200 purse in 2:01.1 for owner Three Wisemen Stable of Kingston.

The third Campbell winner was a catch-drive as Paythelinebluechip won in 1:59.3 for trainer Jay Noye of Pleasant Valley. Scoot Out Of Here completed the Campbell grand slam as the Winsloe driver stopped the clock in 1:59.3 to continue his dash title dominance. Scoot Out Of Here is trained by Vaughan Doyle of Charlottetown.

Gettin Messi won the other $1,800 three-year-old open trot in a 15-length romp with a final time of 2:01 for one of three driving wins for Mike McGuigan. Jamie Whalen of Avondale owns the Armbro Barrister colt, who is trained by Len McGuigan of Charlottetown.

The father-son duo of trainer Len and driver Mike had two victories with Shadownthetwilight winning in 2:02.4 in a maiden breaking score. Mike also found the winner’s circle with Bad Silver in a 2:01.1 win for trainer Todd Walsh of Charlottetown.
