CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Nobody could make a move on Elm Grove Kaboom as he led at every call in Thursday’s feature race at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Marc Campbell added to his season-leading win total in the $2,100 top class, as he sent the heavily favoured Elm Grove Kaboom to the lead and commanded every fraction through splits of 28.2, 57.1 and 1:26.1 before unleashing a 28.2 closer to win in 1:54.3. Oh To Be Me (Gary Chappell) was second with Simon Said (Gilles Barrieau) third.

Tyne Valley captured the $1,550 Tom and Margaret Claybourne Memorial trot in 2:02.1 for driver Walter Cheverie and co-owner and trainer William Roloson along with co-owner Scott Roloson, both of Belfast.

Barrieau had a driving triple on the program, winning with HP Rubis Joyce in 1:59.1 for Blaine Baglole of Cornwall and scored a pair of wins for trainer Jackie Matheson of Charlottetown as Four Corners was a 1:58.1 winner and Perfect Escape won his second-in-a-row, this time in 1:56.2.

Jason Hughes of Stratford also scored three wins in the bike, opening the card up with his own Dusty Lane Min in 2:02.3. That win was followed by Yankee No More’s Race 6 victory of 2:00.3 for trainer Darren Smith of Rocky Point then another win from Hughes' own stable closed the card out as Jeb was a 1:56.1 winner.

Adam Merner of Charlottetown scored a driving double on the program.
