Driver Marc Campbell dominated the opening round of Atlantic Sires Stakes action amid a five-win night at Truro Raceway on Friday (May 31).

The hot-handed reinsman swept the two $10,220 ‘A’ divisions for three-year-old pacing fillies with his own trainees Arc Light and Ma Rebelle.

Last of seven at the half, Arc Light ($16.70) circled her filly foes to take a new lifetime mark of 1:57.3 for Grayland Farm. The Camystic-Red Star Ashlee miss beat out Cheeky Cherry and Howmac Sabrina by three-quarters of a length. She has won half of her four starts this year to match the win count from her 10-race juvenile campaign.

Owned by Larry and Kathy Chappell, Ma Rebelle ($3.90) led all the way in her division and held off the pocket-pulling Im A Miracle by a head in career-best 1:56.4, with Woodmere Tango following less than a length behind in third. The Ameripan Gigolo-Briannas Attitude filly, who went winless last year but had eight top-three finishes from 11 starts, is now three-for-four to kick off her sophomore season.

Campbell was also aboard top class winner Santana Sass, ($4) who won his Truro debut by a romping 11 lengths in 1:55.4 for trainer/owner Nick Macgillivray.

His other Friday night winners included Charlottes Western ($3.20) and Pride Of Paradise ($5.80) for trainer Henry Smallwood.

In the $2,500 Atlantic Sires Stakes 'B' division, David Carey trainee Lady N Paradise upset American Bamstand in a close 1:59.4 mile under Dale Spence's guidance.
