The trotters kick off the action on Thursday evening when both the two- and three-year-olds take to the Truro oval in the Atlantic Sires - Meridian Farms trotting events. The freshmen trotters go in two $8,540 divisions while the sophomore trotters go in three divisions, each for a purse pool of $6,220. First-race post time on Thursday evening is 6:30 p.m.

Atlantic Sires Stakes racing action will continue on Friday evening when the two-year-old pacers will aim to climb the leader board. The two-year-old pacing fillies will go in three $7,240 'A' division events and one $2,500 'B' event. Meanwhile, the two-year-old colts will go in two $10,160 'A' divisions and one $2,500 'B' event.
