The Sunday afternoon program at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park will be the main event on the Weekend Of Championships with the culmination of the 2017 Atlantic Sires Stakes season in the Atlantic Breeder's Crown finals. First race post time is 12:30 P.M. for the 14-dash program. The $9,000 Atlantic Breeder's Crown finals for trotters line up in races 3 and 5 sponsored by Meridian Farms.

Another Campbell trainee, Buckaroo, gets morning line status in the race 3 two-year-old trot Breeder's Crown from post 7 for owners Larry and Kathy Chappell of Marshfield. The $9,000 event will see Buckaroo battle with arch rival Ticked (Driven by Myles Heffernan) from post 3. Buckaroo has the two-year-old trotting record to his credit but has yet to defeat Ticked in a race where both horses have stayed on stride. The draws in the two-year-old pacing Atlantic Breeder's Crowns were not kind to the presumptive favorites as both horses drew post 8. Royaltywestho has yet to finish worse than second in her rookie campaign but has to start on the far outside of her seven rivals in the race 7 two-year-old pacing filly final for a $20,000 purse. Walter Cheverie drives the daughter of Westwardho Hanover for co-owner and trainer Joseph Baxter and co-owner Gregory Francis of Windsor, N.S. Sock It Away can claim both Island two-year-old pacing colt track records to his credit but has to contend with post 8 in his $20,000 Atlantic Breeder's Crown final. The son of Pang Shui will have to circle his seven contenders at some point in the mile whether it is off the gate or coming for home. Campbell will drive the colt for trainer Kevin Maclean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. The draw was kinder to the top choices in the three-year-old championship finals. Filly Forty Seven is selected as top choice in the race 11 $20,000 three-year-old pacing filly Atlantic Breeder's Crown for trainer-driver Campbell but the division has been extremely competitive all season long. Fellow Campbell trainee Elektra Express leaves from post 5 in that race with Ryan Ellis handling the reins while Traces Of Purple has defeated both fillies on separate occasions and gets the services of Gilles Barrieau from post 3. The $20,000 three-year-old pacing colts championship final hits the track in race 13 with Mighty Cowboy the morning line choice with rail control for trainer-driver Darren Crowe and owner David MacDonald of Halifax, N.S., in a race where an argument can be made for any of the eight entries to land in the winner's circle. In other action, the Atlantic Breeder's Crown Open trot hits the track in 8 for a $2,500 purse, a $3,500 Open Pacing mares class lines up for a $3,500 pot in race 12 while a $5,000 Invitational pace closes out the card in race 14.

October 17, 2016 - The 2016 Atlantic Sires Stakes race season drew to an exciting close recently, as harness racing divisional champions were crowned during the Atlantic Breeders Crown Weekend of Champions at Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park on Thanksgiving weekend. The Atlantic Sires Stakes program has become the cornerstone of the harness racing and breeding industry in Atlantic Canada and during the Atlantic Breeders Crown championship weekend the Atlantic Standardbred Breeders Association (ASBA) bestowed some prestigious awards to industry participants. The Glen Kennedy Memorial Award was presented to Tony Zuethoff of Pictou, NS, for his contribution to the breeding of Standardbred horses and Atlantic Canadian harness racing. As the owner of Pictonian Farms, Zuethoff raised over one hundred yearlings with the Pictonian prefix with many of these yearlings going on to become Atlantic Sires Stakes participants and champions. Zuethoff is also an active industry participant as a president of the Maritime Breeders Association and a director with Standardbred Canada. The ASBA also presented, for the first time ever, the Jack Ferguson Memorial Award to the Atlantic Sires Stakes Trainer of the year. The 2016 trainer with the top money earnings during the Atlantic Sires Stakes race season was Mary Clare MacDonald of Antigonish, NS. The ASBA also paid tribute to Meridian Farms for its sponsorship of the Atlantic Sires Stakes trotting divisions. It was noted that PEI's Atlantic Classic Yearling Sale saw the top 5 selling trotters in regional history go through the ring and these trot prices reflected the tremendous support of the Atlantic Sires Stakes trotting divisions by Meridian Farms. The Provinces of Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia were also presented with Lifetime Achievement Awards for their continued support of the Atlantic Sires Stakes program and Atlantic Canadian harness racing industry.
