Published: July 21, 2021 09:50 pm EDT

Paul Langille trainees Woodmere Vanish and Havarti finished one-two in Wednesday's (July 21) $11,878 Nova Scotia Stake for three-year-old pacing fillies, sponsored by Standardbred Canada, at Inverness Raceway.

Woodmere Vanish ($4.80), whom Langille drove, brushed from the pocket to overtake Elm Grove Penelope at the end of a 1:00.1 first half. Once Woodmere Vanish cleared to the lead, Havarti (Darren Crowe) advanced off cover to engage her stablemate up the backstretch, and the two duelled past three-quarters in 1:29.3 before Havarti worked to a narrow lead off the home turn. Despite being headed off the corner, Woodmere Vanish found enough to reclaim the lead and fend off Havarti by three-quarters of a length in 1:58.1. Terrormasue rallied off the home turn to finish third, another 1-1/2 lengths behind.

Debbie Francis and Wayne MacRae share ownership of Woodmere Vanish, a daughter of Rollwithitharry and LTs Magic. The win was her second in 10 career starts to date.

In the overnight feature, a $1,250 winners-over pace, Euchred ($2.30) earned his second win in four days, protecting control of the pace through a :27.4 first quarter duel and opening a two-length margin over runner-up Daddy Let Me Drive in 1:57.4. Redmond Doucet drove the nine-year-old Shadow Play gelding for trainer Walter Walker and owner Kayla Habicht Walker.

The first race of the card was declared "no contest" after Ramset, in fifth place up the backstretch, stepped over the crossbar of the race bike of Tim Gillis, who was driving the fourth-place Cheyenne Nixon. In the act, Cheyenne Nixon's bike snapped in two and Gillis was unseated. All horses were pulled up safely, and all participants walked off the track under their own power.
