Three-year-old pacing fillies Lovineveryminute, Elmgrove Inarush and Pictonian Sareta shared the spotlight Sunday at Truro Raceway, each winning $19,175 divisions of the Frank and Beth Stanfield Memorial, as Atlantic Grand Circuit Week wrapped up.

Current track record holder Lovineveryminute was a gate-to-wire winner in the first division for driver Todd Trites and trainer Earl Smith. The Western Paradise filly fought off third-place finisher I C Anastro (Marc Campbell) en route to the 1:57.2 triumph while Sail Through (Mike Stevenson) finished three-quarters of a length behind off a pocket trip. The winning filly is now five-for-seven in her sophomore season and just shy of the $30,000 earnings mark for breeder River Valley Management and co-owners Windemere Farms and Lana Murphy.

Driven by Mark Bradley, Elmgrove Inarush romped to a two and a half length victory in 1:57.1 over Mappos Moenhay (Clare MacDonald) with Saulsbrook Alana (Marc Campbell) coming on to show despite a late break in stride. The daughter of Coastocoast Yankee is owned by trainer Eddy Doucette and partners Blaine Thibeau, Gordon MacLeod and Grant Mann. Elm Grove Inarush now boasts four wins in seven starts this year with earnings of $26,852.

Daniel Ross' Pictonian Sareta and trainer/driver Mike Stevenson drew off by nine lengths in the stretch and stopped the clock in 1:59.4 in the final division. Briannas Angel (Jason Hughes) and Pictonians Derbie (Bernard McCallum) were the best of the rest, finishing second and third. The win was the Western Paradise filly's third of the year in seven outings and bumped her seasonal earnings to $21,723.

Truro Raceway also hosted the second leg of the Atlantic Aged Mares Pacing Series with Lobsterfest Late-Closer champion For All We Know (1:56.3) and Silky Britches (1:56.1) earning victories in their respective $3,527 divisions.
