Trainer Austin Sorrie left his Montague home this morning with three two-year-old pacers and will return home with three stakes winners after Sunday, August 27 action at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The 17-year-old trainer scored his first win on the stakes card in a $5,500 Lasy Slipper Grassroots division for two-year-old pacing fillies. Camco Willow scored a one-length victory in that race with a time of 2:01 with Gordie Hennessey in the bike for owners Walter Simmons of Summerside and Tammy Collings of Hazel Brook.

Sorrie and Hennessey followed with a win in a $5,000 Joe O'Brien Memorial stakes split for two-year-old pacing colts. Dustylanesame was the winner in that contest in 2:01.1 by seven-lengths with the son of Ameripan Gigolo also owned by Simmons and Collings.

The card was capped off with JJ Powerball winning a $5,000 Joe O'Brien Grassroots division in 2:01.4 while finishing the triples for trainer Sorrie, driver Hennessey and owners Simmons and Collings.

In other action on the card, Royaltywestho won a $10,750 Lady Slipper Gold division in 1:58 with Walter Cheverie driving for owner-trainer Joe Baxter and co-owner Gregpry Francis of Windsor, N.S. Chocolate Terror won the other $10,750 Gold division in 2:02.3 with Paul Langille at the lines for trainer Cyril MacDonald and owner David Livingstone of Halifax, N.S.

The $9,400 Joe O'Brien Memorial Gold divisions for two-year-old pacing colts saw Dustylanewesty a winner in the first split for trainer-driver Clare MacDonald and owners Ian Tate of St. Andrews, N.S. and Riley Farms Ltd., of Summerside. Summerside two-year-old colt track record holder Sock It Away was a 1:59.1 winner in the other $9,400 O'Brien Gold split as Marc Campbell engineered the winning drive for trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford.
