Freshmen pacing fillies Countisfleet and Acton Noisey stayed undefeated early in their careers with victories in Wednesday’s Atlantic Sires Stakes action at Red Shores at Summerside Raceway.

Countisfleet went the distance in the first $9,260 ‘A’ division for driver Mike Stevenson and trainer Lucie St. Amour winning in 2:02.2. The daughter of Benvolio Hanover-Cr Blaze Of Glory was one and three-quarter lengths better than Moon Landing (Danny Romo) and favourite Woodmere Gorgeous (Kenny Arsenault). She is now two-for-two in her career for owner Arthur Davidson of Saint John, NB.

The Nicholas White-trained Acton Noisey has also been perfect in two starts this year for owner Stephen Morton of Windsor, NS. The daughter of Harrods-Cora Belle, a winner in a division of the Callbeck Stakes on July 7, rallied off cover to win the fastest Atlantic Sires Stakes division of the night in 2:01 with Todd Trites in tow. Ifiwereaboy (Jason Hughes) finished three-quarters of a length behind while pacesetter Force Of Fire (Danny Romo) ended up third.

Driven by Danny Romo, Galamoe made the lead after the opening quarter and turned back Bemused (Marc Campbell) to win her split for trainer and owner Alexander Baird of Trenton, NS. The homebred Galantine Hanover-Champagne Flutie filly stopped the clock in 2:01.2 holding off Pictonian Sunshine (David Carey) by a half-length while Yankee No More (Mark Bradley) rounded out the top three. The win was Galamoe’s first after she finished third debuting in a Callbeck Stakes division one week ago.

M P Avril (2:05.3), Keppoch Road (2:07.1) and K D Go Onn (2:02.4) all earned their first wins while making their second appearances on track in three $2,500 ‘B’ divisions.

An accident in Summerside's first race saw five-year-old pacing mare Island Tiara (Vaughn Doyle) fall to the track near the first quarter mark. Island Hurricane (Norris Rogers) also fell as a result of the incident. The race was declared a No Contest as Island Tiara got lose and ran toward the oncoming field.

Both Doyle and Rogers completed their drives on the card and reports from Summerside indicate that the horses involved were scraped up but avoided serious injuries.
