A combination of some of the top pacing colts and trotters in the Maritimes invade Northside Downs for a 14-race program, with a special first race non-wagering event for three-year-old trotters set for 12:40 p.m, followed by 13 wagering races starting at the usual 1 p.m. post.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes three-year-old trot event features the top two sophomore trotters in the region, Tequila Tuesday and Mabou Ridge, as they continue to battle since their two-year-old season. The group of four chase a lucrative $13,600 purse.

The other ATSS trot race for the two-year-olds drew a full field of seven, with the Clare MacDonald-trained and driven Mr Finlay Ridge designated the 5-2 morning line choice. Marc Campbell sends out a trio of trotters in this division, led by Treasureonthewater, who has drawn the rail with Brodie MacPhee slated to drive.

The pacing colts compete in two A divisions and one B division, featuring Truro track record holder Woodmere Rollnpop, who just paced to a new mark of 1:54.2 last week at Truro for Clare MacDonald. Mr Kelly, for Adam Merner and trainer Melissa Rennie, will pose a major threat from post four in this division. The Rennie and Merner combination have Windermere Ryan as the top choice in the second A division, saddled with the outside post five. Windemere Ryan comes in off two A division wins, including a lifespan's best 1:55 last week at Truro.

Two of the best Cape Breton aged pacers will lock horns in the afternoon's Winners Over as Euchred ships in from Inverness Raceway to battle J.A. Ferguson winner Runaway Mystery in a field of six.
