Race favourites Wicked Nick and Pappy Go Go captured their respective divisions of the Blair Andrew Memorial for two-year-old trotters Thursday at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Wicked Nick fired from the rail position to the lead and never looked back scoring in 2:06.4 for driver Gary Chappell. The trotter, sent off as the heavy favourite, notched his fourth win of the campaign for owners Peter Buchanan and Cameron Trail. The victory in the $10,850 event pushes his bank account to $17,320. She paid $2.70 to win.

Pappy Go Go earned his fourth win from six starts in the second division of the Blair Andrew Memorial. The two-year-old was handled by Marc Campbell for Grayland Farm. Bred by William Andrew, the trotter now has a personal best of 2:02.3. Brian Andrew of Meridian Farms was trackside to greet the winning connections and present the cooler.

Some of the best trotters on the East coast went behind the gate in Race 10 in the Open Trot. Freddie went the distance in 1:59.4 giving Campbell his second winner. He’s owned by Three Wisemen Stable of Cornwall, PE.

In the other trot action, veteran Caliban Hanover picked up 54th lifetime win for driver Adam Merner, owner Wendell MacDonald and trainer Ron Gass.

Cabo Pan Lucas pulled off an upset to capture the evening’s top class in 1:57.1 for catch-driver Kenny Arsenault. The pacer, owned by Alan Walker and trainer Gary Poulton, paid $16.50. Tempo Seelster (Vince Poulton) was second, with fraction setter Bazilion (Brian MacPhee) finishing third.
