One of the greatest three-year-olds in the history of Atlantic Canadian harness racing made his four-year-old debut on the east coast look easy Saturday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Sock It Away went off as the heavy favourite in the race 11 preferred pace and driver Corey MacPherson controlled every fraction in the $2,800 event. Sock It Away left well off the rail to secure the early lead and laid down splits of :28.2, :59.1 and 1:29.2 en route to a 1:57.3 score over an off track. Second went to Rollwithitharry (Driven by Gilles Barrieau) while Rockin Indy (David Dowling) completed the Trifecta ticket.

Kevin Maclean trains Sock It Away for owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford.

Midnight Matt used first-over tactics to capture the $2,500 back-up pace with a 2:00.1 victory with Jason Hughes in the race bike for owner-trainer Jennifer Doyle of Vernon Bridge.

Trainer Jackie Matheson scored a pair of wins from his Charlottetown stable on the evening with Lincoln Seelster winning in 2:00.1 with MacPherson at the lines then Perfect Escape (Barrieau) closed out the program in 1:59.3.

Live racing takes a hiatus at Red Shores Charlottetown until Thursday July 18 as Governor’s Plate Week racing starts off on Sunday July 7 and culminates in the Governor’s Plate presented by Township Chevrolet and Noonan Petroleum on Saturday July 13.

Too bad Sock It Away wasn't ready for Govenors Plate Trials. I think this horse would have qualified pretty easily. :57 in the slop Saturday night at Red Shores Charlottetown was pretty impressive.
