The Sunday afternoon (Sept. 23) featured pace at Red Shores’ Summerside Raceway had a surprising ending, as Pictonian Storm hit the wire first while racing as the longest shot on the tote board.

Austin Sorrie drove Pictonian Storm ($58.80) to a 1:57.2 victory at odds of 28-1 for owner Tammy Collings of Hazel Brook, P.E.I. The victory was win No. 27 of the pacer's career. Weekend Atnannies did all the roadwork to finish second for driver Mike McGuigan and Revenant (driven by Adam Merner) finished third.

Nogreatmischief hit the winner's circle in the $1,900 back-up class. The gelding was on top at every call for trainer-driver Walter Cheverie of Nine Mile Creek, who co-owns the pacer with Brian Thompson of Charlottetown, P.E.I. Slide Guitar (David Dowling) finished second in the 1:56.3 mile while White Fish Flash (Norris Rogers) was third.

Dowling continues his lead Summerside’s driving standings. He recorded three wins during the Sunday card, including a pair for trainer Earl Watts of Hampshire. Howmac Sabrina was a winner in 2:00.4 for Watts and Dowling while Cal Hanover recorded a 1:59.4 victory. Dowling also won with the streaking pacer Young Man Matt in a 1:56.3 score for Terry Gallant of Summerside.

The Matinee Challenge Racing Series came to a close for the 2018 season Sunday afternoon with a pair of non-betting finals. The Class ‘B’ final was won by Ultimate Faith and Jenae Wallace with a 2:02.3 mile over Liborio (Ryder Rennison) and The Gormanizor (Clair Sweet). Badlands Giovanna was a speedy winner in her Class ‘A’ final with a mile time of 1:59.1 for driver Brady Sweet. Second in that final was Rising Fella (Jaycob Sweet) with Sharon The Moment (MacKenzie Arsenault) third.
