CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – A pocket ride was converted to a visit to the winner’s circle in the Thursday night feature at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Adam Merner engineered the winning trip with Likely To Win as the longest shot on the board for owners Blenise Young and Lester Campbell of Nova Scotia and Jeffrey Campbell of Alberta. The Melissa Rennie-trainee sat the pocket as Jeb (Jason Hughes) laid down fractions of 29.1, 58.3 and 1:27.4 before Merner used the passing lane to secure the 1:56.3 win at 10-1 by three-quarters-of-a-length over Oh To Be (Gary Chappell).

Osprey Impact captured the open trot in 1:59.3 for driver Walter Cheverie and owner-trainer Paul Larrabee of Belle River. Morosita Bi (Hughes) cut the fractions and finished second but was placed to seventh for interference on Freddie (Marc Campbell) early in the mile. Holy Molie Maggie (Chappell) was placed second with Suicide Shift (Steven Shepherd) placed third.

Mark Bradley scored a driving double on the card winning with his own trainee, Shesaroyalcowgirl, in 1:57.3 and Tipsy Mcstaggers in 2:03.1 for trainer Jay Noye of Pleasant Valley. Trainer Jackie Matheson had a pair of winners with Selkirk Sapphire (Gordie Hennessey) winning in 2:02.2 and Perfect Escape (Gilles Barrieau) a 1:58.3 victor.

Live racing continues Saturday at 6 p.m. in Charlottetown with the Maritime Breeder’s Finals for three-year-old pacers.
