Charlottetown, PE - Red Shores and Harness Racing officials have cancelled the race program Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park due to the snow and wind conditions forcast for Prince Edward Island.

A make-up card will be scheduled for Sunday December 8th. Post time is 12:00 P.M.

Campbell Looks To Reignite 'Quest'

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Rose Run Quest finds himself in the photo every week but will try to get his nose first on the line again Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The 12-dash program will be the final regularly scheduled Sunday card of the season as racing switches to a Saturday only schedule starting next week. The first race of the day goes postward at 12:00 P.M. with the $3,000 featured preferred pace lining up in race 11 of the program.

Trainer Marc Campbell will be in the bike behind Rose Run Quest from post 5 in the class as the morning line favourite. The pacer bought himself a ticket to the $200,000 club in his latest but failed to make the winner's circle as he finished second to Woodmere Ideal Art while garnering enough earnings to meet the milestone. Blair Hansen of Charlottetown owns the seven-year-old son of If I Can Dream.

Post 3 belongs to Burn Out Hanover with Gilles Barrieau driving for trainer Jeff Holmes, while Creepin will guard the rail from the Jim Quinn stable for driver David Dowling.

Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees the absence of the two horses that beat Rose Run Quest in his last two starts to be a sign of clear sailing this week.

"Rose Run Quest has had back to back weeks without a win, which is an eternity for this guy," MacIsaac said. "Since the ones that managed to get the better of him in those starts are absent today, we can't imagine the streak making it to three."

Other entries are Varadero Hanover (Driven by Ken Murphy), Bank Of Dad (Adam Merner) and Midnight Matt (Jason Hughes).

The afternoon back-up pace lines up in race 8 with Mick Dundee pegged as the one to beat from post 2 fresh off of a trio of cheques earned at the preferred level. Din MacNeil of Cornwall owns, trains and drives his homebred pacer who will look to add to his five seasonal victories. Phil Dorleans (Barrieau) and Eagle Jolt (Campbell) are listed as top contenders.
