Foxy hall rac­ing sta­ble from Summerside en­joyed a big night at the track Satur­day with two of their sta­ble stars, Si Se­malu and Thun­der­away, win­ning their re­spec­tive as­sign­ments at Red Shores at the Char­lot­te­town Driv­ing Park.

Si Se­malu, un­der the com­mand of driver Jason Hughes, was sent right to the lead from the rail and never looked back en route to a 1:55.4 clock­ing in the evening’s fea­ture event.

The five-year-old son of Mod­ern Art rolled through splits of 28.3, 58.4 and 1:27.3. Cabo Pan Lu­cas (Danny Mac­Don­ald) was sec­ond with For­ever Par­adise (Mike McGuigan) com­plet­ing the tri­ac­tor.

New­comer Thun­der­away and Hughes were a two-and-half length win­ner in the first of two open trots carded on the pro­gram. The mare notched her 26th life­time vic­tory and her first on Is­land soil.

Foxy hall rac­ing also recorded a third-place fin­ish with Sam It Again Sam in The Class of 1958 St. Dun­stan’s Univer­sity pace won by Per­fect Es­cape in a daz­zling 1:56 flat for Wal­ter Chev­erie.

Chev­erie, who had two win­ners on the pro­gram, did the driv­ing for own­ers Jack Keenan, Stratford, and Joseph Dahl, Burling­ton, Ont.

Another new­comer to the Is­land rac­ing ranks, Strike A Light, won the sec­ond open trot in 1:59.4 for driver Nor­ris Rogers and trainer Blaine McKenna.

Mike Steven­son had a driv­ing dou­ble on the 12-dash pro­gram scor­ing with The Big Bite for trainer Thane Arse­nault and the own­er­ship group of Jack Arse­nault, Char­lot­te­town, Donna McIver, York, Ed­ward Blais­dell, Mon­tague, and Deb­o­rah Wil­son, Elms­dale, N.S.

The sec­ond score came with Shellys Man for owner Michael Collings, Char­lot­te­town, and trainer Gerald MacDougall.
