Mach It Big continued his winning ways Saturday night in the $2,000 featured pace at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
Marc Campbell sent the six-year-old son of Mach Three to the lead from Post 8, carving out fractions of 29.1, 1:00 and 1:29.3 before unleashing a 29.2 final panel over a rain-soaked track rated four seconds off by the Maritime Province’s Harness Racing Commission.
Van Zant (Ron Matheson) finished five lengths back in second with Tempo Seelster (Vincent Poulton) third.
Mach It Big is owned and trained by Jonah Moase of Cornwall.
The back-up pace was a similar affair as Campbell and trainer Moase teamed up to bring Sterling Seelster to the winner’s circle in 2:00.
Campbell fired the grey pacer off the gate through a first quarter of 28.1 brought by Panda Bear (Brodie MacPhee) before Sterling Seelster took control before the 57-second half.
Sterling Seelster was owned by Neal Moase of Cornwall during the race but was claimed for $5,000 by Marie Cameron of Summerside.
Bowyer Hanover (Walter Cheverie) finished second with third place going to Paphos (Gilles Barrieau).
Lets Make Ideal was the third part of the Moase training triple, as the leading CDP conditioner had Dale Spence send the charge to a 12-length victory in 2:02.3 in the $3,000 claiming pace for owner Mikaela Lustic of Cornwall.
Campbell had a driving triple on the card, as he also scored with Shock The Rock in 2:02.4 for trainer Blair MacLeod and trainer Bethany MacLeod of New Dominion.
Walter Cheverie also scored a driving triple on the card, as he was victorious with Leading Camdidate (2:03.3) for owner-trainer Jeff Holmes, JK Special (2:03.3) for owner-trainer Joe Smallwood and Alcars Spud Baran for owner Wendell Grady and trainer Wendell Shaw.
Other winners on the card were Honor Roll (Brian Andrew) in 2:02.1, Dusty Lane Dora (Corey MacPherson) in 2:04, Ivegotmyeyeonu (Mark Bradley) in 2:05.3, Rosa Santanna (Barrieau) in 2:03.4, and Joachim (Kenny Arsenault) in 2:05.1.
Total wager for the 12-dash card was $22,853.
