Atlantic Sires Stakes colts put on an impressive show at Inverness Raceway on Sunday afternoon as the three-year-old pacers took to the local oval to compete in five divisions.

Touch Of Thunder took first-place honours in his $7,040 'A' division, crossing the finish line in a career-best 1:59.3 with Brodie MacPhee in the bike for trainer Earl Smith. The ownership papers for the Articulator-Sugar Booger colt are held by Prince Edward Island's Peter Smith, Don Smith, Gerald Morrissey and Larry Chappell. The event also saw a three-way dead-heat for second-place with Mr Vaive, Super S Yzerman and Just A Professor crossing the finish line in unison.

The second 'A' division of the afternoon race card went to Maritime Breeders champion Arties Magic and driver Todd Trites in a career-best equalling time of 1:57.3. The Articulator-Drop Of Magic colt defeated last season's divisional champion Dumas Walker and Hollywoodgigolo. He is trained by Earl Watts for Prince Edward Island breeder Windemere Farms and co-owner Clive Balderston of New Brunswick.

Rancousy and trainer/driver Darren Crowe captured the third 'A' division in a new mark of 1:57.3 for owner Donald Charles Smith of Brookside, N.S. The Western Paradise-Too Spicy For You colt was followed under the wire by Woodmere Rondevous and Island Gigolo.

Meanwhile, the first $2,500 'B' division of the afternoon went to Post Haste (Ameripan Gigolo-Post A Smile) in 2:02.3 for trainer, driver and owner Angelo Camilli of Sydney, N.S. Locky (Western Paradise-Rappin Rhonda) and trainer/driver Redmond Doucet crossed the finish line first in their 'B' division in a career-best 1:59.3 for owner/breeder Lennan MacIsaac of Inverness, N.S.

Driver Doucet capped off a five-win performance on Sunday afternoon with another one of his own trainees as Salute edged out Schooner in the $1,500 top pacing class. The nine-year-old gelding prevailed by a nose in 1:59.3 for the Ruth Shannon Stable of Port Hawkesbury, N.S.

Doucet also scored with Eloquent Desire in 2:01.3, providing local trainer Erland Campbell with his first career win. Doucet's other winners were Phyllis Mac for Robert MacLeod and Private Practise for Stanley Harper Jr.
