Foxyhall Racing stable from Summerside, P.E.I. enjoyed a big night at the track with two of their stable stars, Si Semalu and Thunderaway, winning their respective assignments Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Si Semalu, under the command of driver Jason Hughes, was sent right to the lead from the rail and never looked back en route to a 1:55.4 clocking in the evening’s featured $2,400 Preferred event. The five-year-old son of Modern Art rolled through splits of :28.3, :58.4 and 1:27.3. Cabo Pan Lucas (Danny MacDonald) was second with Forever Paradise (Mike McGuigan) completing the triactor.

Newcomer Thunderaway, driven by Hughes, was a two and half length winner in the first of two $1,400 Open Trots carded on the program. The mare notched her 26th lifetime victory and her first on Island soil.

Foxyhall Racing also recorded a third-place finish with Say It Again Sam in "The Class of 1958 St. Dunstan’s University Pace" won by Perfect Escape in a dazzling 1:56 flat for Walter Cheverie. Cheverie, who had two winners on the program, did the driving for owners Jack Keenan of Stratford, P.E.I. and Joseph Dahl of Burlington, Ont.

Another newcomer to the Island racing ranks, Strike A Light, won the second Open Trot in 1:59.4 for driver Norris Rogers and trainer Blaine McKenna.

Mike Stevenson had a driving double on the 12-dash program, scoring with The Big Bite for trainer Thane Arsenault and the ownership group of Jack Arsenault of Charlottetown, Donna McIver of York, P.E.I., Edward Blaisdell of Montague, P.E.I., and Deborah Wilson of Elmsdale, N.S. The second score came with Shellys Man for owner Michael Collings of Charlottetown and trainer Gerald MacDougall.
