Trainer-driver Garry MacDonald sent Panmunjom wire-to-wire to win this year's edition of the $7,500 Jennie & Joe Chippin Memorial Pace on Saturday at Fredericton Raceway.

With the inside post advantage, Panmunjom grabbed the lead off the gate and carved out fractions of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:26.4 en route to the one length victory in 1:56 flat. Carnivore and Terry Gallant edged out Joseph Michael and Todd Trites for second.

The six-year-old son of The Panderosa is owned by Dale and Ronnie Rennie of Elmsdale, P.E.I. He notched his fourth win of the season in 26 starts and 19th lifetime to push his bankroll to $507,838.

Sent postward as the 7-2 third choice, Panmunjom paid $9.10 to win.

There was a dead-heat for third four lengths behind between Encore Seelster, driven by Ryan Ellis, and Woodmere Bigsplash with Stephen Trites.

Kaylas Sophia paid $4.40 to win for the fifth time this year in 32 starts and 13th time in her career.
