The second two year-old trotting event went to Paymenowpaymelater and driver Kenny Arsenault in 2:06.4 for owner Wade Peconi of Stanchel.
The two-year-old pacing fillies also strutted their stuff at the Inverness oval led by Woodmere Dancenart and driver-trainer Clare MacDonald who won their A division event in 2:01.2 for owners Morah Kerr of Greenfield, N.S., and Phonsie MacEachern of Port Hood, N.S.
The other A division event on the race card went to Jann Down and driver Gilles Barrieau in 2:01.4 for the Downey Stables of Quispamsis, N.B.
