CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – In an identical performance to his Sunday afternoon harness racing victory, Red Magician rode the pocket and won the Dr Blair Kelly Memorial presented by the Charlottetown Vet Clinic in the top class on opening night of Old Home Week 2019 Friday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Adam Merner was in the bike for the perfect journey in the $2,750 Preferred 2 pace as Red Magician sat second behind pacesetter Intended Royalty (Driven by Redmond Doucet) through fractions of 28.1, 57.1 and 1:26.3. Red Magician then got up for a head decision in 1:55.1 over race favourite Intended Royalty while third went to Rockin Indy (David Dowling).

Melissa Rennie trains Red Magician for owners Dale and Ronnie Rennie of Elmsdale.

Driver Marc Campbell established a lead in the Francis McIsaac Memorial standings for top driver of Old Home Week with three wins on the Friday card.

Campbell teamed up with Anzula to win in 1:59.3 in race 2 from the Ken Wilkie stable, then Larjon Lachlan was a 1:59.1 winner for trainer George Rennison and Five Run Homer had a maiden score of 2:02.4 for Campbell and trainer Jamie Smith.

Rennison had a training double on the card as the Truro, N.S., horseman ships his stable to Red Shores Charlottetown for Old Home Week again this year. Gilles Barrieau was in the bike for Rennison’s other win as Bettim Vicky was victorious in 1:58.4.
