BIBLE HILL - Two and three-year-old trotters and pacers will be showcased at Truro Raceway this week as Atlantic Grand Circuit Week continues.

Bernard (Pooker) McCallum and his granddaughter Paisley McCallum stand with Casa Miasa on Monday. Pooker will drive Casa Miasa on Tuesday in an Atlantic Sires Stakes A Division for two-year-old pacing fillies. The 12-dash card is the second race program during Atlantic Grand Circuit Week.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes two- and three-year-old trotting events will be featured Tuesday. The two-year-old trotters will go in two divisions, each with a purse pool of $8,420. Three-year-old trotters will also race in two divisions, each with a purse pool of $8,360.

Joining the trotters Tuesday will be the Atlantic Sires Stakes two-year-old pacing fillies.

Post-time for tonight's 12-dash card is 6:30 p.m.

"It's going to be exciting action," said race secretary Joe Kelly. "There's nine divisions of sire stakes action, and it's always an exciting time to see the two-year-olds for the first time and see who's going to be the next superstar of Maritime harness racing with the fillies.

"And of course it's the only time of the year we get to see the trotters, both the two- and three-year-olds ... so it's kind of a treat for the fans to see them, as well."

On Thursday, stakes racing continues with the two-year-old pacing colts, while Saturday three-year-old pacing colts and the Exhibition Cup Invitational will be in the spotlight.

The highlight of Sunday's card will be the Frank and Beth Stanfield Memorial.

"It's always an exciting time of year," Kelly said of the atmosphere at the track. "I think everybody gets up for Atlantic Grand Circuit Week, and we just hope for the best of the weather."
