Fans at Northside Downs were treated to a pair of divisions of the Nova Scotia Stakes for two-year-old pacing fillies, and it turned out to be a sweep for sire Western Paradise.

Pictonian Sareta found the winner’s circle for the third time in her career thanks to her career-best score of 1:59.2 in the opening split. The daughter of Western Paradise-Southview Salena marched to the front and supplied fractions of :29.3, 1:01 and 1:30.3 before scooting home in :28.4 for driver Mike Stevenson. She held on to win by a quarter of a length over Saulsbrook Alana, with Mappos Moenhay finishing third.

Wade Sorrie trains the youngster for owner Daniel Ross of Belfast, PEI. Her share of the $5,700 purse lifted her lifetime earnings to $10,248.

Im A Sumbunnie captured her $5,400 division for owner/trainer/driver Kevin Bailey, but she didn’t win by much. The daughter of Western Paradise-Cams Newsmaker brushed to the lead at the half and held the lead right to the line. She prevailed by a nose over Emily Annabel Mac in 2:02.3. Pictonians Debbie snared the third prize.

The filly now boasts a 2-0-0 record in three tries and her lifetime earnings climbed to $3,555.

The Nova Scotia Stake is co-sponsored by Standardbred Canada and the NSHRIA.
