Inverness Raceway treated its fans to a rock solid 14-race program on Sunday, with three-year-old pacing fillies of the Atlantic Sires Stakes taking the majority of the spotlights.

A set of $10,020 “A” divisions and a single $2,500 “B” division went postward for that age group while a six pack of older pacers did battle in the $7,500 Inverness Invitational.

Semjac Legacy proved to be much the best in the opening tilt for the “A” fillies. The daughter of Western Paradise-Island Zazzle drew off to win by three lengths despite being asked to do the first over work. She stopped the clock in 1:59.2 for trainer/driver Darren Crowe en route to defeating Tobins Country and Papas Little Rose. Iola Crowe, Murray Wayne Smith and Marlene Miller hold the papers on the 10-time winner, who has banked more than $26,000 to date.

Kenny Arsenault mapped out a perfect trip for Darko in the second division, and the daughter of Largo-Norwell Lilyharbor parlayed the ground-saving journey into a three and a half-length score in a sharp clocking of 2:00. It was the fourth consecutive win for the mare who defeated Elleofnxample and N Xample Deal. Owned and trained by Ralph Annear of Montague, PE, Darko has put together a 7-0-2 record in 11 starts this season while banking in excess of $32,000. The 14-time winner has stashed away more than $88,000 in lifetime earnings.

In the lone “B” division P H Firefly went down the road for Todd Trites, who guided the James Burton-trained daughter of Mantorious-Self Help to the 2:01.3 score over Woodmere Blackrose and Danielles Success. Burton owns the youngster, who won for the third time this season in 12 trips postward.

Outlawpositivcharg continued his winning ways by capturing the $7,500 Inverness Invitational for trainer/driver Terry Gallant. The five-year-old son of Blissfull Hall parked to the quarter pole in :28.1 before touching down on the lead and laying down middle panels of :58 and 1:28.1. He tacked on a :28.1 final frame en route to pulling away to win by a pair of lengths over Country Estate in 1:56. Abby Best was third. It was the 10th win of the season for the career winner of $104,194, who is owned by Fred Lamont of Calgary, AB.
