Sent the 1-9 favourite, Thelastonestanding opened the Tuesday, Aug. 13 program with a blowout victory in the first of several divisions for the Atlantic Sires Stakes (ATSS).

The son of Northern Bailey took control in the $6,120 three-year-old trotting dash passing the quarter in :29.2 and expanded his lead from there. He led by two lengths moving to a :58.3 half, then by four lengths passing three-quarters in 1:29.2 and hit the finish 12-and-a-half lengths in front of West River Dawn M circling into second. Dreamboat Annie took third in the 1:59.4 mile.

Dusty Lane Titan took the $6,120 second division of the ATSS three-year-old trot by open lengths. The Tad The Stud gelding crossed to the front past early leader Windemerebarrister moving to a :29.4 opening quarter. From there trainer-driver Marc Campbell extended his advantage through a :59.4 half and past three-quarters in 1:31 to hit the finish in a lifetime-best 2:00.4, seven-and-a-half lengths in front of Windemerebarrister. Whim Road Gem, breaking at the start, closed for third.

The Armbro Barrister colt controlled the pace at every station, setting a clip of :30.1, 1:00.2 and 1:29.4. Race-favourite Little Miss Willie, pulling first over from fourth past the half, pressed the pace circling the final turn but stalled through the stretch. Pocket-sitter Ya Boy Bear pounced the pacesetter late but finished three-quarter lengths behind in second. Mile Hill Willie settled for third.

Go With Her stalked the leader through a 1:03.2 half and got locked by a first-over move from 1-5 favourite Mabou Ridge approaching three-quarters in 1:35.2. Mabou Ridge loomed closer to Tequila Tuesday through the stretch, but the tempo setter held firm by three-quarter lengths to win. Go With Her took third.
