All About Madi continued her winning crusade in Friday night's Atlantic Sires Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies at Red Shores Summerside as she earned her seventh straight victory in front-end fashion.

In the first of three $9,860 "A" divisions, driver Walter Cheverie sent the streaking filly to the lead during the 29-second opening quarter and cruised through middle splits of :59.1 and 1:29.2 while keeping clear of first over challenger Silverhill Cupid. Meanwhile, the backfield began to fan out wide and R Es Miss Amy emerged onto the scene late, but All About Madi held on to win by half a length in 1:59.3. R Es Miss Amy settled for second while Amirightorwrong followed one and a quarter lengths behind off a pocket trip. The winner was the 9-5 second choice to Glory Jean, who broke stride at the start, but recovered to finish fourth.

All About Madi is owned by local trainer Leith Waite, Leslie Waite and Spencer Waite. The homebred Brandons Cowboy-Jk Casablanca filly, who is perfect in all three of her Sires Stakes races, now boasts nine wins in 14 starts during her debut season and earnings of $25,597.

West River Ambyr earned her second straight Sires Stakes victory in the fastest division, lowering her lifetime mark to 1:56.3 for trainer/driver Clare MacDonald and co-owner Haley MacDonald.

West River Ambyr got the jump start on an advancing Howmacscanasta as the homebred Brandons Cowboy-West River Rosie filly was pulled from the pocket down the backstretch the second time and overtook pacesetter Proven To Be Bad (:27.3, :56.4, 1:26.4) past the third quarter mark. Howmacscanasta, the 2015 Atlantic Breeders Crown champion, continued to chase the 1-2 favourite home, but finished three-quarters of a length behind in second-place. Proven To Be Bad followed five lengths behind in third.

R Es Miss Emily pulled off a 10-1 upset in the final "A" division, circling the field as the longest shot on the board. Mike McGuigan trains and drives the Camystic-Jojoes Shabla filly, who earned her second career win for owner James Whalen Jr.

Paradise Paradox retook the lead from Pownal Bay Style after the :28.2 opening quarter and proceeded to the half in :59 before Southfield Sassy advanced first over and cleared to command by the third quarter mark in 1:28.3. Howmacfiesty tracked Southfield Sassy with R Es Miss Emily, who was last through the first-half, rallying from third over into the stretch and prevailing by three-quarters of a length in a new mark of 1:58.3 over those filly foes. Race favourite Maudail Mac, driven by Ken MacDonald, broke stride at the start of the race and fell.

The $2,500 "B" divisions ended in tight finishes with Brookdale Liz hanging on by a neck in 1:59.1 for trainer/driver Bernard McCallum and Victory Cry prevailing by that same margin in 2:01.3 for Kenny Arsenault.

Friday's card also featured the $2,500 Andrew Perry Invitational Trot, which was won by the front-stepping 3-2 favourite, Osprey Impact, in 1:58.4 with Freddie chasing over one length behind. Cheverie drove the five-year-old Federal Flex mare, who is owned and trained by Paul Larrabee.
