A full slate of Atlantic Sires Stakes events will take centre stage at the historic Charlottetown oval.

Saturday afternoon's racing action will include the three-year-old pacing fillies, with two 'A' divisions that each feature a $12,980 purse. Three $2,500 'B' divisions of the pacing fillies will round out the afternoon card of racing. First-race post time on Saturday is 1 p.m.

Atlantic Sires Stakes racing action will continue on Monday at the Charlottetown Driving Park when the three-year-old pacing colts have their chance to shine. A total of six divisions of the pacing colts will be showcased on the afternoon race card which will begin at 1 p.m.

Tuesday's race card will include the two and three-year old Atlantic Sires Stakes-Meridian Farms trotting events. Meridian Farms, Atlantic Canada largest Standardbred breeding operation, is a major sponsor of the Atlantic Sires Stakes trotting events. The two-year-old trotters will race in three divisions and the three-year-old trotters will meet in two divisions.

The stakes action will continue on Wednesday with the Atlantic Sires Stakes two-year-old pacing colts and on Thursday with the two-year-old pacing fillies.
