Driver Marc Campbell captured the first two $9,540 Atlantic Sires Stakes ‘A’ divisions with a pair of perfect two-year-old pacing fillies on Wednesday evening at Red Shores at Summerside Raceway.

First Lady Of Art ($5.70) kept her career record perfect with a wire-to-wire eight-length romp in the first ‘A’ division.

The daughter of Articulator left from the inside post position with Campbell in tow and secured a two length lead on the field as she carved out fractions of :29.2, 1:00 and 1:30.4. First Lady Of Art extended that margin in the stretch to over eight lengths before hitting the wire in 2:01 to lower her lifetime mark set in last week’s Callbeck Stakes by three-fifths of a second. Jk Janaya (Greg Sparling) and Elm Grove Gypsey (Jason Hughes) finished second and third respectively.

Earl Watts trains the brown filly, now two-for-two, for Painting The Town Stable of Grand Bay of Westfield, N.B.

Campbell also sent his own trainee Malabrigo ($3.30) to the top from third after the :30.4 opening quarter in the second ‘A’ split and led the rest of the way through panels of 1:01.3 and 1:31.4 en route to a 2:00.4 score by one and a quarter lengths.

Malabrigo, a 1:59.4 winner while debuting in Callbeck Stakes action, was purchased for $11,500 at the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition Sale by Greenoaks Farm of Mississauga, Ont. The daughter of Western Paradise-Lots Abunny is a full-sister to stakes winner For The Luv Abunny and WEG circuit competitor Kid Carson, who has banked just over $200,000 to date.

Callbeck winners Pictonian Amanda (Mike Stevenson) and J J Maywest (Walter Cheverie) rounded out the top three.

Cash An Clay ($2.80) overcame an early interference break and rallied wide from sixth to capture the third and final ‘A’ division in 2:02.1 for trainer-driver Kenny Arsenault. Pictionian Jewel (Mike Stevenson) finished second but was placed fifth for causing interference in the race. Putnams Vision (Danny Romo)and R Es Nancy (Brian MacPhee) inherited second and third as a result.

The daughter of Astronomical, who finished second behind Malabrigo in last week’s stakes action, is owned by Turn For Home Stable of Stratford, P.E.I.

Summerside also hosted three $2,500 ‘B’ divisions in which R Es Sobrina scored a 20-1 upset in 2:03.4 while making her career debut with trainer Kenny Arsenault in the bike. The daughter of Articulator was purchased at the Atlantic Classic Yearling Sale for $5,500 Barry Martin and James Gillis of Sydney, N.S.

Southfield Sophie ($3.40), a daughter of Western Paradise, delivered on her pari-mutuel promise in the next ‘B’ division with a 10 and a half length wire-to-wire effort in 2:03.1 for trainer-driver Terry Gallant. The $2,100 Atlantic Classic yearling purchase, who earned her first win after finishing third in her Callbeck Stakes division last week, is owned by Southfield Farms Inc. of Summerside.

The final ‘B’ division went to a front-stepping Elm Grove Girlzone, who won by four and a quarter lengths in 2:03 for driver Mark Bradley. The Coasttocoast Yankee filly, a runner-up in her Callbeck division to First Lady Of Art, was purchased for $1,000 at the Atlantic Classic sale by trainer Jean Baptiste Turbide of Havre-Aux-Maisons, Que.
