Two-year-old pacing fillies were in the spotlight during Thursday's double card of harness racing at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Driver Gillies Barrieau engineered a driving double, capturing two-thirds of the $10,060 A divisions. The first win was a maiden-breaking score for Camtizzy, who pulled pocket late in the mile to power past pacesetter Amirightorwrong (Scott Hubbard) for the 2:00.3 win.

Ron Matheson trains Camtizzy (Camystic - Cheyenne Sabrina) for Gary Revington of Fairview, PEI. Her 1-1-1 summary for four starts has provided her with $6,637 in purses, inching closer to paying off that $6,900 yearling sale price tag.

Barrieau then clicked with a horse fro his own barn, Howmacscanasta. The youngster tallied her second ATSS score with an impressive 1:59.3 five-length romp over Paradise Paradox (Bernard 'Pooker' McCallum).

Wayne Mac Rae of Fall River, N.S., Robert Tilley and Lester Mott of Saint John, N.B. share ownership on Howmacscanasta (Articulator - Stonebridge Capri), a $6,500 Atlantic Classic yearling with nearly $10,000 banked thus far in four starts.

On a three-race win streak is West River Ambyr, a near gate-to-wire winner for trainer-driver Clare MacDonald in 2:00.4. The Brandons Cowboy - West River Rosie filly fought off a fierce challenge from Gigs And Reels (Darren Crowe) down the backstretch for a three-and-a-half length score.

MacDonald co-owns West River Ambyr with her daughter Haley. The duo also bred the filly, who now boasts $13,724 in purses.

Ontario invaders (or native sons, depending on how you want to look at them) Anthony MacDonald and Paul MacKenzie captured the $2,500 B divisions. MacKenzie guided Silverhill Cupid to a 2:03.3 win for trainer Terry Gallant and owner Silverhill of Tignish, PEI, while MacDonald maneuvered Angie B to victory in 2:01 for Angela MacDonald of Charlottetown, PEI and trainer Jamie Smith.

A no-contest was declared in Race 8 when the bit of Chevalier Semalu (Garry MacDonald) broke, throwing MacDonald on the track. With the horse running loose, the judges declared the race a no-contest. Reports indicate that horses and drivers escaped injury.

On the Thursday nightcap, Mcjestic found room late to win the $2,500 Joe & Wal Hennessey Memorial Pace for driver Marc Campbell and trainer/owner Troy Murray of Clyde River, PEI.
