Truro Raceway will host two divisions of the Atlantic Sires Stakes on its 14-dash Sunday afternoon card, which offers the richest races of the 2007 Maritime season to date.

Southview Special and Panama, winners of their divisions of the Callbeck Stakes at Summerside, have drawn into the same division on Sunday. They will race for a purse of $12,500,

A winner of nearly $50,000 in her freshman campaign for co-owners Elwood Lawton of Strathford and Tyler Shea of Pointe St. Claire, Que., the daughter of Southview Matt holds the Maritime record for two-year-old fillies with a 1:57.1 record taken at Charlottetown.

Southview Special drew Post 5 in a seven-horse division that also includes Nova Scotia Stakes winner Northie T (PP 4) and Island Galeforce (7), the Prince Edward Island two-year-old pacing filly of the year in 2006. Others are Woodmere Girl Friday (pp1), Forceful Hope (PP3), and Cane Riseagain (PP6). Panama drew Post 2 for her Island owners.

Southview Sally drew the rail in the other $12,500 division. The Drop Off filly, another product of Lawton's breeding farm at Tea Hill, has fared well at the Truro track, winning the Maritimes Breeders championship series there in 2006.

Others in this six-horse division are Black River Fame, Oceanview Lori, Judy's Beauty, Georgi Girl and DWs Justice.

There are also two $2,500 B divisions on the 14-dash program, which begins at 1:30 p.m.

For many of the sophomore fillies, the races at Truro will be their final test before they meet in Charlottetown in the elimination heats of the Maritime Breeders championship series on June 16.

At Fredericton Raceway on Wednesday night, Porthill Digger, a four-year-old pacer co-owned by Frank Balcom of Amhert, was a 2:02.2 winner in a $1,050 class.

The card was the first at Fredericton since the New Brunswick government announced purse pool increases for the horsemen.
