CHARLOTTETOWN - Semjac Legacy, a homebred daughter of Western Paradise-Island Zazzle, got up the passing lane to post an upset victory in the $13,000 Island Breeders championship for three-year-old pacing fillies on the weekend at Charlottetown Driving Park.
Darren Crowe drove the filly to a quarter-length victory for Truro owners Murray Smith, Iola Crowe and Marlene Miller as Semjac Legacy won for the eighth time in 16 starts this year and pushed her seasonal earnings to more than $30,000.
RE's Mary looked like she had the victory when she overtook Darko in deep stretch, but Crowe found an opening in the passing lane and got up for the victory with Semjac Legacy.
Crowe almost pulled off another upset in the $13,000 two-year-old pacing colt final when he sent the longshot Artizzmoe to the front for owner Sandy Baird of Trenton. Allbentouttashape, the Atlantic Sires and Maritime Breeders champion, just got up in final strides for a neck victory in 2:00.4, averting what would have been one of the biggest upsets of the Maritime racing season. Allbentouttashape, a Quick Comeback gelding bred by Greg MacKenzie of Scotsburn, won for the 13th time in 16 starts this year and increased his earnings to $76,000 on the year.
In other Island Breeders Crown action, Grayland Bling won the three-year-old trot final with a wire-to-wire 2:05.3 victory for catch-driver Bernard (Pooker) McCallum and owner Paul Gray of Pugwash. Grayland Bling was bred by Ralph McCully of Antigonish.
