Since losing the first three starts of her career three-year-old pacing filly Meridian Magic has done nothing but win, and a Sunday afternoon stroll around Inverness Raceway’s oval made it 19-in-a-row for the starlet of the Atlantic Sires Stakes program.

The daughter of Largo-Hot Asset went gate-to-wire for trainer/driver Kenny Arsenault en route to a 2:00 score in the first of three “A” divisions of the A.T.S.S. for the sophomore set. Meridian Magic sliced out splits of :30.3, 1:00 and 1:31 in the $6,800 tilt before tacking on a :29-second final quarter for good measure. Runner-up Elm Grove Ella was 3-1/2 lengths in arrears, with Pictonian Pasha a distant third.

Sent off as the 2-5 choice in the five-filly affair, Meridian Magic won for the eighth time this season for partners Barry Martin and James Gillis of Sydney, NS. The lion’s share of the purse bumped her lifetime earnings to $112,969.

Hey Jean took the next division in 1:59.4 winning by four lengths over Iona Paula and Woodmere Rose. In rein to trainer/driver Marc Campbell, the daughter of Toofunnyforwords-Palma Panic won for the second week-in-a-row. Blair Hansen of Charlottetown, PEI holds the papers on the career winner of $23,402.

Campbell also clicked in the third division with Scootingforsuccess, who front-stepped to a 2:00.2 score over Putnams Dough Girl. Ammon Darcy and J Gs Frankie finished in a dead-heat for the third prize. Wade Sorrie trains the daughter of Western Success-Scooting Annie for owner Walter Simmons of Summerside, PEI. It was her third win of the season and the fifth of her career. She has banked in excess of $24,000 to date.

Danny Romo mapped out the winning trips for Woodmere Ellie May (2:02.1) and Tooles Force (2:03.2) in the set of $2,500 “B” divisions for the three-year-old filly pacers.

Abby Best capped off the afternoon program with a two-length triumph in the Christine Deagle Memorial. The nine-year-old Cambest miss in rein to Todd Trites went coast-to-coast in a time of 1:57 for owner/trainer Angus MacLean. Cam Cool was second best and Roi De Coeur BG was third.
