CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The Marc Campbell harness racing stable will pack a one-two punch in the Thursday evening featured event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

First race post time is 6 P.M. for the Thursday card with the $2,900 Fillies and Mares Open the top class of the night in race 9. Starting with the Thursday card race fans will be able to place their wagers in the new drive-in betting venue at Red Shores Charlottetown from 12-4 P.M. on the trackside patio. That venue will also be offered from the same times on Friday and Saturday with patrons able to purchase tickets on live or simulcast racing at that time.

In the Fillies and Mares Open, Dreamfair Zenfire was the boss in her East Coast debut last week for trainer-driver Marc Campbell but the Winsloe reinsman will elect to drive stablemate Arc Light from post 6 on Thursday after her impressive six-length victory in last week's back-up class. Open class winner Dreamfair Zenfire will have the driving talents of Walter Cheverie in the bike with post 4 for owners Ryan and Everett MacLeod of Souris. The Sunfire Blue Chip pacer pocket rode behind pacesetter Berazzled last week and won in the stretch drive. Berazzled will have Mike McGuigan back in the bike from the Jonah Moase stable from post 5.

Race analyst Les MacIsaac will look for a similar result from Dreamfair Zenfire on Thursday as he pegs her on top."Dreamfair Zenfire had an impressive local debut and kept her perfect record for the 2020 season intact at 3 for 3," MacIsaac said. "She loses Marc but there's nothing wrong with Walter as a replacement and until she goes down to defeat, she's the one to knock off."

Other entries in the top event are Private Di (To be driven by Kenny Arsenault), Miss Kabana (Vincent Poulton) and Much Adoo (Brodie MacPhee).

The evening finale features the back-up class of pacing mares vying for a $2,400 purse. Woodmere Chella (Dowling) finished a close third to Dreamfair Zenfire and Berazzled last week and drops down in class this week for trainer Marvyn Webster and owner Valleygrove Farms of Kensington. The Atlantic Sires Stakes graduate will look for the first win of her five-year-old campaign. Top contenders in the class include Killean Finale (Ken Murphy) and Rocknrols Image (Jason Hughes).
