CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Myles Heffernan Sr., and He's Marvalous have completely reinvented their harness racing tactics in the past weeks and will look for one more score on the final card of the winter meet Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 11-dash season closer has a 12:30 P.M. first race post time on Saturday with the $2,950 top event lining up in race 10. Hes Marvalous is saddled with post 5 in the field of half-a-dozen as Myles Heffernan Sr., will again pick up the reigns for trainer Myles Heffernan Jr., and owner Jackie Heffernan of Summerville. The seven-year-old son of Delmarvalous is known for being quick off the wings at the start but his two most recent victories came as he sat in a hole and brushed home the final portion of the race. Former top class champions Creepin leaves from post 6 with David Dowling driving for trainer Jim Quinn and last week's runner-up Winter Blast has post 4 with Jason Hughes in the seat from the Jennifer Doyle stable. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will look for Hes Marvalous to replicate his impressive victory last week."Hes Marvalous has always liked the front but his new found rallying style has produced two wins in the past three weeks and that speaks volumes for his versatility," MacIsaac said. "With his current form as good as it is the road to the winners circle goes through him." Other top class entrants include SIlverhill Buddy (Driven by Marc Campbell), Rockin Indy (Adam Merner) and Pictonian Storm (Corey MacPherson). The final card of the winter season will see some special promotional plays as all live customers who purchase a ticket in race 1 will receive a $2 wagering voucher for race 2.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - With some Heffernan stickhandling in the final quarter, Hes Marvalous snuck through to knock off the Saturday afternoon harness racing preferred pace at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The $2,950 featured pace saw Winter Blast (Driven by Adam Merner) set the tempo through splits of 29, 59.1 and 1:29.4 over an off-track while eventual winner Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.) was locked in third on the rail. Heffernan found himself with a fresh horse in the final panel of the race and guided his charge to the outside off the final turn then elected to duck back down the inside in the stretch drive to win in 2:00.1. Winter Blast finished second while Pictonian Storm (Corey MacPherson) was third. Jackie Heffernan of Summerville owns the seven-year-old son of Delmarvalous while Myles Heffernan Jr., handles the training duties. Private Di supplied a colossal upset in the afternoon closer as Kenny Arsenault rallied his trainee from the back of the field to win by half-a-length in 2:01.4 while ending Killean Finale's (Ken Murphy) undefeated streak. Paying $54.40 to win while on top of an $862.80 triactor, Private Di is owned by Wade Peconi of Stanchel. The Jackie Matheson stable had a training triple on the 12-dash card as Daut Not had a maiden breaking score in 2:03.3 with Marc Campbell picking up the last-minute catch drive in the opener. Campbell and Matheson teamed up again in race 5 to deliver with The Time To Win in 2:04.3 then Woodmere Soul was a 2:04.1 victor in race 6 from the Matheson stable with Merner in the bike.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Good things don't last forever but 2020 has been very good to Killean Finale and she will look to continue that trend Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the harness racing Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash Saturday card kicks off at 12:30 P.M., with the top pacing mares around facing off in the $2,500 final race. Killean Finale has yet to be defeated so far in 2020 with three-straight wins since the calendar turned for driver Ken Murphy, trainer Clifford Murphy and owners Dr. Mary McNiven and Pacemaker Stable of Nine Mile Creek. The seven-year-old daughter of Sportswriter will have her work cut out for her from post 6, after drawing inside every start this year. Collective Wisdom has been razor sharp as well with a string of top three-finishes but is saddled with post 8 this week. Charlottetown native Drew Neill is visiting this weekend from his Ontario base and will pick up the catch drive for trainer Jackie Matheson. To watch a replay of Killean Finale as a yearling in 2014 click on this link. Race analyst Les MacIsaac is looking at another entrant as the spoiler with post 5 starter Tell Me Why and the combo and driver Corey MacPherson and trainer Joe MacDonald of Breadalbane. "Longshot players may want to have a look at Tell Me Why," MacIsaac said. "This mare has a great finishing kick and if Corey can work her into the right position she's a potential sleeper." Also in the field are Outrageous Spirit (Driven by Gordie Hennessey), Charlottes Western (David Dowling), Private Di (Kenny Arsenault), Paythelinebluechip (Marc Campbell) and Indywheelbarrow (Adam Merner). The $2,950 preferred pace hits the track in race 11 with Winter Blast (Jason Hughes) and Creepin (Dowling) set to spar again this week after the latter was scratched from action last Saturday. Winter Blast has rail control in the six-horse field while Creepin leaves from the far outside. Pictonian Storm nearly lit up the tote board at this level last week and retains the services of MacPherson from post 3. The final card of the winter meet is Saturday February 1st.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - With a perfect two-hole ride, Winter Blast narrowly got his nose on the line first in the $3,000 preferred harness racing pace Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Hes Marvalous (Driven by Myles Heffernan Sr.) was first to the lead in the cold conditions with a three-second variant and laid down splits of 30.1, 1:00.4 and 1:30.2. The pacesetter battled off a first-over advance by the Jennifer Doyle trained Midnight Matt (Kenny Arsenault) but it was the other Doyle trainee, Winter Blast and driver Jason Hughes, in the two-hole that reached up for the glory in a 2:00.1 victory. Pictonian Storm (Corey MacPherson) rallied for second while Hes Marvalous had to settle for third. Danny Birt of Vernon Bridge holds the ownership papers of the winning eight-year-old son of Sand Shooter. The Chris Davies stable had a pair of wins on the day both with Adam Merner in the sulky. Runnindownadream opened up the action with a 2:04.3 score then Miss Sangria was an open-length winner in 2:03.1 in race 3.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - A frosty Saturday of harness racing is set to be capped off with the top pacers on the grounds this week at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 13-dash card gets underway at 12:30 P.M. and the $3,000 preferred pace will line up in the finale as Creepin looks for his third straight from the handicapped post 7. David Dowling is back in the bike for trainer Jim Quinn, who co-owns with Alex Quinn and Carl Peterson. The six-year-old son of Mach Three has been superb so far in 2020 with wins in both his outings. Winter Blast has been in the triactor in both those races and will work from post 5 this week for driver Jason Hughes and trainer Jennifer Doyle. The grey son of Sand Shooter will be looking for his 29th lifetime win. Rockin Indy also has an outer post as the post 6 starter will again race from the Chris Davies stable with Adam Merner at the controls. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will excuse the post disadvantage as he selects Creepin for top spot. "Creepin has dominated the top class the past two weeks and his versatility was on display as he used a different racing style in each," MacIsaac said. "He's not a lock but at the same time, it's hard to go against him the way he's been racing." Other preferred entrants are Midnight Matt (Driven by Kenny Arsenault), Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.), Jetster (Marc Campbell) and Pictonian Storm (Corey MacPherson). Mystery Phil is the lone newcomer on the program in race 4 for a $2,200 purse. Merner is in the driver's seat for trainer Davies and new owners Dale and Ronnie Rennie of Elmsdale as the morning line favourite. The five-year-old son of Shanghai Phil is a six-time winner in his career, sporting a lifetime best of 1:54.4 taken over Woodbine Mohawk Park in Ontario. He last raced at Flamboro Downs in Dundas, Ont., on Dec. 19, finishing fifth in 1:57.4 for driver Colin Kelly. For more information go to Redshores.ca. By Nicholas Oakes, for Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Harness racing at Red Shores in Summerside and Charlottetown saw significant gains across the board in 2019. The live wager saw an over 10 per cent increase in 2019 compared to 2018 with $392,236 in new wagering dollars to give a $4,281,446 total all sources wager. Those 2019 increases are thanks to upward bumps in on-track wager as well as a 15 per cent increase in the off-track wager over the 2018 campaign. Racing experience manager Adam Walsh points to the hardworking individuals in the racing community for making 2019 such a banner year with 100 total race dates held across the province. "Red Shores offers an excellent and exciting racing program that our customers on Prince Edward Island and throughout North America have come to enjoy," Walsh said. "It is the love and passion of the hardworking horsemen and horsewomen of PEI of these equine athletes that is the strength of the racing industry in PEI." Lee Drake, Manager of Marketing & Brands, says guest experience is the number one focus at Red Shores and a key reason the business continues to grow in every facet. "We work hard on getting new people to our properties through strong partnerships and relationships in tourism, meetings & conventions and the corporate community," Drake said. The world-class presentation at Red Shores is another major factor in their success. "We have beautiful clean properties with a professional staff and it's all about the experience whether it's racing, dining or the casino," he said. "We have really stepped up our social media presence which also drives new business as well." The Red Shores Race Day broadcast network is also sporting some great numbers with 2.6 Million viewers (2,640,878) from all locations with Atlantic Canada viewership at 1.9 Million (1,961,380). Red Shores' two signature events also had exceptional showings in 2019 with the Gold Cup and Saucer program pulling in $307,134 from all wagering sources putting that handle second all-time in Island racing to the Gold Cup and Saucer card in 1994. The 2019 Governor's Plate card was the second highest grossing program in the history of the Summerside Raceway with $96,651 wagered on the card, narrowly putting it behind the $99,994 record handle of 1996. Walsh says the difference in outside competition from those record wagers in the 1990s to today's climate should not be overlooked. "There is quite a difference in the landscape today compared to 10 or 25 years ago but we are focused on growing those numbers," said Walsh. The 2020 winter racing season is coming to a close at Red Shores in the coming weeks but the red-hot action will be back at the city track on Saturday May 2nd for the summer racing meet with the Kentucky Derby theme. Post time for that May program will be 6 P.M. Governor's Plate week is July 5th to the 11th while Old Home Week is August 13th to the 22nd featuring the Guardian Gold Cup & Saucer. Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements on Red Shores' new line of promotions and events for 2020. By Nicholas Oakes, for Red Shores    

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Usually known for his front end prowess, He's Marvalous employed off-the-pace tactics to capture the Marc Campbell - Driver Of The Decade harness racing pace Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The afternoon program was called Marc Campbell day at the capital oval with specials presentations and clips of Campbell's career throughout the card commemorating his decade long stint as leading driver.

A son of Well Said out of millionaire pacing mare Burning Point, Burn Out Hanover tired off the front in his latest over a heavy track rated five seconds off due to mud.   Race analyst Les MacIsaac will side with Burn Out Hanover to provide the upset in the Marc Campbell - Drive Of The Decade pace.   "As we said earlier, the front wasn't the place to be last week so we'll cut him some slack for not delivering as the chalk," MacIsaac said of Burn Out Hanover. "There's a ton of thirds there against some big time opposition so he could be sitting on a win."   Other entrants in the field are IC True Grit (Driven by Mike McGuigan), Bank Of Dad (Adam Merner), Santana Sass (Kenny Arsenault), Silverhill Buddy (David Dowling), Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.) and Jeb (Jason Hughes).   The preferred pace lines up in race 7 with Creepin the morning line choice after winning this class last week.

Race analyst Les MacIsaac sides with Silverhill Buddy for the top piece of his selection in the New Year's Pace.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The 2019 racing season comes to a close Tuesday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park and the top driver of the decade says he can't wait to get started on another driving title. The 13-dash New Year's Eve program is scheduled for a 6:30 P.M. first race post time. Environment Canada has indicated the possibility of impending weather with officials at Red Shores making an announcement at 10 A.M. Tuesday morning on the status of the program. Winsloe driver Marc Campbell is poised to win his 10th straight dash title as he leads all drivers at the Capital oval with 136 trips to the winner's circle, ahead of second place Gilles Barrieau at 107 wins. The 35-year-old Vernon River native finds it hard to believe he was never heeded as top driver, with only Jason Hughes tying him in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. "It seemed to go by quick," the driver said. "Probably because of all of the ups and downs that come along with horse racing. I couldn't tell you the amount of weddings I was supposed to be in that I got there late or had to leave early because of horse racing." "Thankfully my friend and family still like me," Campbell jokes. Along with two O'Brien Award for Horsemanship and a pair of Gold Cup and Saucer victories, Campbell has made 2,319 trips to the winner's circle in his career, with over $5.2 million in purse earnings. "I feel like I'm just getting started. I'm driving way better now than I ever have, way differently than I ever have." The Tuesday program will also see the retirement of Dreamfair Van Dam, a longtime mainstay in the Campbell stable that recently returned back to P.E.I. from a lease arrangement in Nova Scotia. The 14-year-old pacer faces mandatory retirement before he turns 15, but will go out a winner in his final two races. "I go down in the basement in my house and the kids are watching Youtube of Gold Cup and Saucers or lord knows what," The father of four said. "Poor Dreamfair Van Dam is tired out, the kids have raced him 20 times a day the past week in the basement. The Youtube is getting worn out. But that is what it is all about, it's not all about money." One thing Campbell cannot praise enough is the racing product that Red Shores puts on at Charlottetown and Summerside. "The product here is second to none. I get to go to work at a nice place, nice track, nice facility. People think the racing isn't tough here but it's tough. Go buy a horse for $15,000 and you bring it down here and you could get throttled. There are a lot of great horse people here and it is tough."
