Truro Raceway's leading driver Paul Langille added to his chart-topping win totals as he swept half of Sunday afternoon's 10 races.

Langille's own trainee proved to be a good omen early on the card for the Lower Onslow, N.S. horseman as the two-year-old Betterthancheddar gelding named just that, Good Omen ($3.50), inherited the 2:00.4 victory when making his first career start in the second race. The freshman is owned by breeder Rosanne Langille and Ellie Driscoll.

The Langille stable doubled up with veteran pacer Well Did ($4.50) taking the fourth race in 1:55.2 for the Well Did Horse Owners Club.

Langille completed his five-win performance during the back half of the card driving three-year-old filly Dragonville ($6) to a maiden-breaking win for trainer Gardner McCallum in the seventh race then capping it off with a blowout victory aboard Gary Cave's homebred pacing mare Im A Miracle ($5.70) -- the fastest mile of the day in 1:55 -- and taking Crafty Xample ($3.60) to the passing lane to prevail in the finale for the Keith Legge barn.

Langille is off to a strong start at the Truro meet, topping all drivers with 19 wins and holding a double-digit lead over Todd Trites and Darren Crowe, who are tied in second with eight wins each.

The 29-year-old horseman is coming off a career-year in which horses he drove won 60 races and earned nearly $200,000 in purses,
