D Gs Camme just missed the all-age track record at Truro Raceway as he blazed around the half-mile oval in the $7,500 Johnny Conroy Memorial Pace during Sunday afternoon's harness racing card, which also featured the Carl & Marg MacKenzie Memorial Stakes for three-year-olds pacers of both sexes.

D Gs Camme was victorious in 1:53.3, coming within one-fifth of a second of the track record co-held by Dunachton Gale (2006), Formal Affair (2010) and Duke Did It (2014).

Driven by Gilles Barrieau, the four-year-old son of Blissfull Hall left from post two and carved out fractions of :28.1, :57.3 and 1:25.3 before drawing off by six lengths with :28-second closing speed. Modern Xhibit (Marc Campbell) followed the whole way in second and All Turain (Mike Stevenson) finished third.

Jackie Matheson trains D Gs Camme for his father Ron and fellow Charlottetown partners Quentin Bevan, Hal Bevan and Tom Clark. The win was the pacer's second in a row and seventh of the season in 17 starts. He also won this year's Governor's Plate and Premiers Pace by open lengths.

Three-year-old pacing filly Elm Grove Inarush won the fastest $8,250 division of the Carl & Marg MacKenzie Memorial Stakes, overcoming her outside post seven start and going wire-to-wire in 1:57.1 with Mark Bradley aboard for trainer and co-owner Eddy Doucette. Co-favourite Saulsbrook Alana (Marc Campbell) finished over three lengths behind in second and Howmac Missy (Todd Trites) was third. The victory pushed her lifetime earnings over the $100,000 mark.

Pictonian Sareta converted off a pocket trip to win the other filly division in 1:58.4 by two lengths for trainer/driver Mike Stevenson. Absolootly Hot (Scott Hubbard) came from last to place over the popular pacesetter Lovineveryminute (Todd Trites), giving trainer Earl Watts a two-three finish in the race.

Favourite Rancousy was a dominant winner in the fastest of two colt divisions, leading by more than four lengths the entire way and expanding to as much as nine lengths by the third quarter mark. The Darren Crowe-trained and driven colt cruised home to stop the clock in 1:58.1 with a final margin of four lengths. Mr Vaive (Bernard McCallum) followed in second and Arties Magic (Todd Trites) completed the top three finishers.

Clare MacDonald's homebred Super S Yzerman won the other division in 1:59.1 in front-stepping fashion over Rebelseven (Marc Campbell) and Pictonian Storm (Mike Stevenson).
