Narragansett used a huge three-wide brush up the backstretch to capture the Joe and Wal Hennessey Memorial Pace during Old Home Week harness racing Thursday night at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Camstock Lode set up the early fractions from the rail for driver Ryan Ellis.

The New York shipper set down splits of 28.3, 57.4 and 1:26.2 before being engaged by Narragansett after the three-quarters and worn down in the stretch drive.

Narragansett put up a blistering final time of 1:54.3 for trainer-driver Jason Hughes and owner Foxyhall Racing of Wallace, N.S.

Camstock Lode was second with Oakmont (Marc Campbell) finishing third.


Woodmere Dancenart stamped herself as the fastest two-year-old filly of the 2014 season Thursday afternoon.

The two-year-old Articulator-Shadow Dancer filly sat the pocket in her $13,900 Atlantic Sires Stakes A Division while Woodmere Articblue (Campbell) laid down fractions of 29.1, 59.2 and 1:29.4 before angling by in the stretch to score a 1:58.3 victory.

The other $13,900 A Division was won by Jann Down and driver Gilles Barrieau in 1:59.1 over Three Pink Bows (MacDonald) and Lyndale Jenn (Brian MacPhee).

Race favourite Dusty Lane Bria made a break behind the gate, leaving the race wide open for Jann Down to control the front end through fractions of 29, 58.3 and 1:28.3.

Jann Down is trained by Stephen Mason for owner Downey Stables of Quispamsis, N.B.

The $2,500 B Divisions were won by Miss Pamela May (Campbell) in 2:02, Miss Oromocto (MacPhee) in 2:02.4 and Windemere Belle (Campbell) in 2:02.

The fastest mile of the day went to newcomer Chevalier Semalu in 1:57.2 for trainer-driver Garry MacDonald and owner Sandra Stead of Montague over Mr. Pogge (Campbell) and Tobins Knockout (Walter Cheverie).
