All the Open Trot attention has been on the rivalry between Star Photo and Freddie but Majian Tango had something to say about that Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

In line to Jim Ripley, Majian Tango got away last in the compact field of five contesting the $2,250 Open Trot but used a three-wide brush at the three-quarter pole to swoop his competitors and stop the clock in 1:58.3. Freddie (Driven by Marc Campbell) set the fractions and had to settle for second with Star Photo (Jason Hughes) third. Marylea Ripley of Amherst, NS owns Majian Tango.

It was one of two wins on the card for the Ripley family as Majian Gilroy won the $2,050 back-up trot as the longest shot on the board in 2:00.4.

Julep Hanover landed on the wire first in the top pace of the night in the evening finale. Driver Kenny Arsenault sent the Wade Myers owned and trained mare to the front from post 7 in the $2,000 class and controlled every fraction en route to a 1:57.2 mile. Charlottes Western (Campbell) was second while One Hot Camshaft (Ken Murphy) completed the top three.

The combination of trainer Tom Weatherbie of Charlottetown and driver Mark Bradley had a pair of trips to the winner’s circle both with Ontario bred two-year-olds.

Thinking Out Loud filly Smiling Dialing won the first dash of the evening in 2:00.1 for owner Doug MacPhee of New Haven, then the Betterthancheddar rookie lass Bettorthanbobbi disposed of her maiden status with a 2:00 score in the race 5 Stars For Life Foundation Pace for Bradley, Weatherbie and owner Ian Smith of Charlottetown.
