Atlantic Sires Stakes two-year-old pacing colts and fillies strutted their stuff at the Fredericton Raceway Wednesday night.

Putnams Force, with driver Ryan Ellis in the bike, survived a first-over journey to win the first colt division in a time of 2:03.2 for trainer/owner Ross Toole of Truro, N.S. Pacesetter Ringmaster (Claude Poirier) took the second place spot and third place went to Fitelle (Kenny Arsenault). The win was the Force Of Life-Tooles Gold colt's first in five outings.

The second colt division went to Allbentouttashape, who overcame early starting gate issues to win in 2:03 for the Dooley Boys Racing Stable out of Halifax, N.S. Mr Salming (Mike Stevenson) finished second and Freddy My Boy (Jason Hughes) took third. Driven by Kenny Arsenault, the son of Quick Comeback-C A Lady scored his fourth straight win keeping his freshman record untarnished.

Both “A” divisions of the two-year-old colts went for a purse pool of $12,840.

In the first $13,000 filly division of the race card Charlottes Coast and trainer/driver Darren Crowe took home the winner’s cooler in a time of 2:07.3 for owners Dan Belliveau and Justin French of Halifax, N.S. The daughter of Coasttocoast Yankee out of Charlottes Xena, who has finished no worse than second in three starts, front-stepped her way to a maiden breaking victory. Second place honours went to Seawind Allegra (Danny Romo) and third to Meridian Magic (Kenny Arsenault).

The second filly division went to J J Solara with trainer Clare MacDonald holding the reins in a time of 2:04.3 for owners Morah Kerr of Greenfield and Phonsie MacEachern of Port Hood, N.S. C H Yocoohno (Kenny Arsenault) placed second and Howmacs Quicktempo (Mike Stevenson) took the third place spot. The Coastocoast Yankee-Farline Hanover miss has recorded three wins, including her ATSS “A” division on July 15 at Summerside Raceway, and one second in four starts.

Atlantic Sires Stakes action continues on Saturday as the three-year-old pacing fillies meet for action at Northside Downs. A lone “A” division will go for a hefty purse of $15,920 and two “B” divisions will each go for $2,500. Post time at the North Sydney oval on Saturday is 1:30 p.m.
