Freshmen and sophomore trotters took centre stage at Inverness Raceway on Wednesday in a quartet of Atlantic Sires Stakes splits.

Races 2 and 4 featured two-year-old trotters in a pair of $5,280 divisions.

Comere used his rail advantage to break his maiden for driver Marc Campbell and trainer Blayne White. The In Power – Coquettish Chip colt went head-to-head with Muzzys Dumpling (John Montgomery) through fractions of :32.1, 1:03.4 and 1:36 before disposing of that rival and hanging on by a quarter-length in 2:08.2.

White co-owns Comere, who came into the race with just two thirds in seven attempts, with partner Kuri White. Comere has earnings of $7,752.

Firedance Ridge doubled up for the team of driver Harold Shepherd and trainer John Arsenault. The Force Of Life – I Love Tequilla colt went gate-to-wire, setting intervals of :33, 1:04.3 and 1:36.1. He then sprinted home in :31 for a four-length decision in 2:07.1.

Donald Dunsford bred and owns Firedance Ridge, who is 3-2-1 in seven starts, banking $12,717.

The sixth and eighth races were contested by three-year-old trotters, who competed in two $5,140 tilts.

Miss Moe registered her first seasonal victory when she converted from a pocket trip for trainer/driver Danny Romo. The Nikes Image – Ginger Tree Darla filly tracked Scarlet Destiny (Darryl MacLean) through stanzas of :31.2, 1:02 and 1:34 before collaring the leader and coasting to a two-length triumph in a career best 2:05.

Miss Moe was bred and is owned by Gary and Connie Ross, who have seen the young filly go 2-11-6 in 22 lifetime starts while collecting $29,830 in purses.

Super S Crosby scored for the second straight week for driver Ken MacDonald in the final division. The Force Of Life – Island Tradition gelding watched things from third for three-quarters of a mile and then turned on the jets, trotting home in :29 to nail Rustico Trisox (Joey Pineau) at the wire by a nose in a lifetime best 2:02.

Clare MacDonald trains Super S Crosby and co-owns the filly with partner Morah Kerr. In 10 career tries, she is 3-1-1 with $11,204 in her bank account.
