TRURO (Staff) - Truro Raceway will open its biggest week of the 2007 harness racing season on Sunday evening when the three-year-old pacing colts will be the marquis attraction on the opening night of Atlantic Grand Circuit Week. Post time is 5.45 p.m.

Force Ore Finesse, the leading point getter in the Atlantic SIres Stakes, has drawn the rail in one of three $9,280 divisions for veteran Phil Pinkney, who won with the colt in 1:56.1 in his last start. Mr. Sundin and The Big Onion drew the rail in the other A divisions.

There are also two $2,500 B divisions of the stake on the 12-dash card.

Truro Raceway will also honor Clare MacDonald on the Sunday card, commemorating her 1,000th career driving win. The 47-year-old mother of three became the first Canadian woman driver to record 1,000 wins when she drove her homebred trotter Maple Leaf Redwing to victory in a division of the Maple Leaf Trot at Summerside on Wednesday night.

Paul Gray of Pugwash picked up a Callbeck Stakes win at Summerside on Wednesday with the two-year-old Grayland Bad Girl, who took a maiden mark of 2:01.1.

Truro will stage Atlantic Grand Circuit Week cards on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights of next week with the final program set for Sunday, July 29.
