Sent off the 1-5 favourite, the Western Paradise filly owned by Danica Ellis and driven by trainer Marc Campbell paid $2.10 to win.

In the $8,520 Atlantic Sires Stake split for two-year-old trotters, Ticked cruised after leading by 15 lengths at the quarter to a three-length victory over odds-on favourite Buckaroo and Buddy White.

The $13,335 Nova Scotia Stakes for two-year-old colt and gelding pacers was taken by T M Direct Speed, going wire to wire in 1:59.4 over 3-5 favourite Rockin Party and String Busters.
