It was a trot-filled Tuesday evening at the Charlottetown Driving Park, as the half-oval featured a six-pack of Atlantic Sires Stables events for the square-gaiters from the two- and three-year-old divisions.

Kris Me Goodnight kicked things off with a 2:08.3 triumph in the first of three divisions for the rookies. The daughter of Armbro Barrister-Hypnotic Kris carved out panels of :32.4, 1:05.3 and 1:37.4 before kicking home in :30.4 to win by a half-length margin over Miss Emerson Ridge. Third prize went to Madonna.

It was a maiden-breaking win for Kris Me Goodnight, who is owned, trained and driven by Brian Andrew. She’s banked just over $3,000 to date.

Ticked went to the front and didn’t look back en route to a 2:01.2 triumph in his $6,240 division. Myles Heffernan Sr. chopped out fractions of :30.1, 1:00.1 and 1:31.1 with the colt before using a :30.1 kicker to win by two lengths over Buckaroo. Third prize went to A Pure Heart.

The son of Armbro Barrister-Tymal Maroma now owns a 4-for-5 record and a bankroll that stands at $12,258. Heffernan shares ownership on the Gerald MacDougall trainee with Jackie Heffernan.

Buddy White turned a two-hole trip into a 2:05 triumph in his $6,240 assignment – the final division for the juveniles. Windmeredontuworry led through panels of :32.1, 1:04.1 and 1:35.2, but Buddy White emerged late and fired home in :29.2 to win by 1-1/4 lengths over Windmeredontuworry. West River Cindy took home the show dough.

The son of Armbro Barrister-Highly Organized broke his maiden and now owns a 1-1-2 record from four lifetime starts. The winner of $6,197 was driven to victory by driver Adam Merner. The Ronnie Gass trainee is owned by Blayne White.

Miss Neala Ridge rallied to win the first division for the three-year-olds for trainer/driver Clare MacDonald. The daughter of Neal-R Rocket Rachel got away third before moving first-over on the way to the half. Revenueofwindemere led the field through first-half fractions of :30.1 and 1:01.1, but Miss Neala forged to the lead in the backstretch before putting up the three-quarter clocking of 1:31.3. She kicked home in :30.1 to win by a half-length margin over Glencove Carter. Third in the contest was Talk Of Windemere.

Sent off as the 1-2 favourite, the roan filly now boasts a 2-2-1 record from five starts this season. Unraced as a rookie, the pacing lass pushed her earnings past $9,000 for owner Gerard Moulins.

Pappy Go Go went coast-to-coast in his $6,220 division for trainer/driver Marc Campbell. He hustled the son of Tad The Stud-Paging Willy to the lead from Post 5, and the gelding kept on rolling through fractions of :29.2, 1:00 and 1:31.1 before firing home in :29.3 to win by 3-1/2 lengths over Oceanview Deb. Rounding out the top three was Mile Hill Mac.

The 1-5 favourite, who is owned by Grayland Farm, is now 6-for-6 this season after going 6-for-11 in his rookie year. The son of Tad The Stud-Paging Willy is owned by Grayland Farm. He’s banked just over $15,000 this year and more than $37,000 to date.

Majian Tango also posted a popular win in his $6,220 division for trainer/driver James Ripley. The gelding survived an overland trip to win by a nose over BJ Lorado in 2:01.3. Mary Leah survived late interference to finish third.

Marylea Ripley owns the son of Tad The Stud-Askmetodance, who extended his winning streak to three-in-a-row. He’s 4-for-5 this season and 8-for-14 to date. The gelding has banked more than $27,000 in his career.
