The feature race Tuesday evening at Red Shores Summerside was declared a no contest after the starting gate wing fell off at the beginning of the race.

Outside The Wire, driven by Brodie MacPhee, suffered some scrapes and bruises in the mishap. There were no other injuries.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes for two and three-year-old trotters were in the spotlight during Lobster Festival Week. The stakes were presented by Meridian Farms.

Paymenowpaymelater, owned by Wade Peconi of Stanchel, PEI, won the first two-year stake for Kenny Arsenault and trainer Earl Watts. The time of the mile was 2:07.4.

J K Blaze and Walter Cheverie captured the second two-year-old division. Cheverie did the driving for owner/trainer Joe Smallwood of Stratford, PEI. Cheverie and Smallwood also teamed up to win a three-year-old trot stake with J K Hustler.

Seanchai captured his $8,620 division for trainer Nicholas Oakes, driver Brodie MacPhee and Buntainwood Farm of Brackley Beach, PEI.

Glad everybody was ok after the starting gate accident. Looked pretty scary at the time. On another point congrats to the folks at Summerside Raceway on the great show so far. Excellent bet and up from last year. Proves once again that given equal opportunity SRW can compete with any track in the region.
Continued success folks!
