The first Atlantic Sires Stakes events of the 2015 race season got underway on Sunday as the three-year-old pacing fillies were featured on the afternoon race card at Truro Raceway.

Three Pink Bows and driver Danny Romo captured the first of two 'A' division events, taking home the winner's share of the $10,640 purse. The duo crossed the finish line in a new lifetime mark of 1:59.2 for trainer/breeder Douglas Rankin and owners Tanya Tremblett of Sydney Mines, N.S. and Stevi Jardine of Georges River, N.S. Second-place honours went to Miss Oromocto (Mark Haig) and third was Jann Down (Gilles Barrieau).

The second 'A' division event of the afternoon went to Thebigbamtheory in a career-best 1:58.4. Trainer Ernest Laffin took care of the driving duties for local owners Kelly and Cameron MacEachen. Woodmere Articblue (Danny Romo) placed second and Casa Miasa (Bernard McCallum) were third.

Both winning fillies remained undefeated in their sophomore campaigns -- Three Pink Bows with three in a row and Thebigbamtheory now two-for-two.

Atlantic Sires Stakes racing action will take a brief hiatus until the end of the month when the three-year-old pacing colts meet for competition at Inverness Raceway on June 28.

Also perfect this season, Im Drinkin Doubles earned his second straight win in the top $1,375 Winners Over class as he defeated Forever Paradise (Corey MacPherson) by three-quarters of a length in 1:57.1 with Marc Whebby aboard. Emmons Ralph MacKay trains the four-year-old Shadow Play gelding for R G McGroup Ltd. of Bathurst, N.B. and Wayne Eric Whebby of Dartmouth, N.S.
