Pinner wins 6th straight

Pinner continued his win streak in the top pacing class at Charlottetown Driving Park on Saturday afternoon while driver Marc Campbell scored one of his five victories on the 13-race card.

Campbell sent the favourite to the lead during the opening quarter and held off the pocket-sitting Stayoutofmyaffair and Jason Hughes for the half-length victory in 1:59 over the 'good' track. Mcjestic and Corey MacPherson came from last to show in a field that was reduced to five with multiple weather-related scratches.

The seven-year-old Mach Three gelding, who notched his sixth win in a row, is co-owned by local trainer Brian Ladner and Kevin and Lillian Ladner.

Pinner improved his seasonal record to 11-8-6 in 40 starts and earned his 32nd career win to push his bankroll over the $200,000 mark.

Campbell swept the last three races on the Saturday program with Rebelryan ($7.70), Pinner ($2.20) and Aprils Dawn Star ($4). He was also victorious in the opener with repeat winner Teddys Place ($2.80) and the fifth race with Seawind Rianna ($13.50). His five-bagger pushed his meet leading win total to 123, leaving him seven wins short of his own single-season record at Charlottetown. Campbell set the mark at 122 Charlottetown wins in 2011 and pushed that record to 130 wins last year.

Hughes scored a training/driving triple while Kenny Arsenault doubled up.

Charlottetown is scheduled to host its final harness racing card of 2013 on New Year's Eve, beginning at 7 p.m.
