Summerside, PE - Harness racing action is back at Red Shores Summerside Sunday at 1pm.

The Backstretch Beat is a new addition to the Red Shores Summerside program, filled with insight on the top sections in each and every race. The 'beat' has landed on Bowyer Hanover in Race 9.

"Look no further than the way he finished his mile last time out, he was flying! Any kind of speed like that could be to much for the rest to handle," reads the 'Beat'.

Narragansett for Foxyhall Racing and trainer-driver Jason Hughes are pegged for second while Pictonian Storm is picked for the show prize.

There is sure to be lots of action in the Drive For Charity this week at Red Shores Summerside, in the kick off last week a number of drivers we're out of province on stake duties but are back to rack up the dollars for local charities.
