Both colts were victories in divisions of the Bob Dewar two weeks ago at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway. Race 11 will see 2013 Island Breeders champion Settlement Request (Gilles Barrieau) fend off a field of seven rivals including Wishes In The Rain (Darren Crowe) and Mr Vaive (Bernard McCallum). The Cecil Ladner Memorial pacing series elimination put their noses on the gate in race 10 and 12. The first $2,400 elimination in race 10 has Maine invader Coral Snake (Crowe) from post 2 for owner Island native David MacDonald of Halifax fresh off a 1:55.2 victory over Scarborough Downs. Other entries include PC Shockwave (Brian MacPhee), R Sonoflife (Todd Trites), Narragansett (Jason Hughes), Likely To Win (Ryan Ellis), Sterling Seelster (Campbell), Schooner (Barrieau) and Machinthesand (Brodie MacPhee). Race 12 has another Maine entry owned by MacDonald in Art Of Illusion from post 8. The pacer has minted his status as one of the top pacers in the State of Maine after a 1:53.2 victory last week in the free-for-all at Scarborough Downs but will have to fend off All Turain from post 7, who is undefeated since teaming up with Brodie MacPhee 10 starts ago, and Astor for trainer-driver Hughes, fresh off a 1:56.4 victory in his P.E.I. debut. Other entries include Blissful Bro (Campbell), Touch Of Lightning (Earl Smith), Perfect Escape (Barrieau), Hail The Taxi (Trites) and Judge Jon (Stevenson). The top foru from each elimination advance to next week's $8,200 final, while the next four will race off in the $3,000 consolation. Summerside Sunday SUMMERSIDE, PE - A $1,900 feature pace highlights the Sunday afternoon card at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway with a 1 pm post time for the 13-dashes. The race 12 feature has Ultimate Luck installed as the post time favorite for driver Arsenault, trainer Sifroi Melason and owner Ultimate Stables of New Brunswick. The six-year-old Camluck stallion has a tough field of opponents including Onehotvett (Barrieau), Outside The Wire (Brodie MacPhee), McMaverick (Ken Murphy), Eagle Jolt (Campbell), Upfront Ticket (Hughes), Lucky Encounter (Norris Rogers) and Shipps Xcalibur (Gary Chappell). The card also features the $1,850 Open trot has newcomer Presto Pegasus picked to win off a two-race win streak in Charlottetown. The nine-year-old Pegasus Spur gelding is driven by Mark Bradley for trainer Brian Andrew and owners Rachel Andrew of Milton and William Andrew of Calgary. His main competition will come from Zip The Lip (Brian MacPhee), Abundaspin (Harold Shepherd) and Caliban Hanover (Ron Gass). The field also includes Lyrical Lindy (Hughes) and Honeymoonisover (Brian Andrew). Race analyst Jarred Stretch is leaning on post 1 starter Abundaspin to get the job done in this week of his 14-year-old season. "After going on a lengthy win streak he hasn't been to the circle in three straight, but he's been good enough and he'll be thirsty to get back," Stretch said while pegging Caliban Hanover for second and Presto Pegasus for third.

Maritime Breeders Finals Set for Charlottetown and Summerside tracks; All Turain Favored in Preferred Pace Charlottetown, PE - It's the richest stake races of the season as Red Shores Charlottetown and Summerside play host to the Maritime Breeder's stakes with $33,000 on the line for the two-year-old colts and $29,200 for the two-year-old fillies. These showdowns will happen Saturday at 6pm in Charlottetown. Red Shores Summerside will feature the two-year-old trotters in the MBA final for $8,600 while the three-year olds race for $7,100. Post time is 1pm Sunday. Dumas Walker, who won his elimination in 1:59 and the Breeders Crown in 1:57.2, has drawn post two for driver Myles Heffernan from Glace Bay, NS. The son of Western Success has been established at 5-2 odds on the morning line. Super S Yzerman (Clare MacDonald) will have to overcome post 8 in the final but sports a 10 for 12 in top three finishes while the Gilles Barrieau trainees, Tobins Fusion and Settlement Request, are considered top contenders. Barrieau has opted to drive Tobins Fusion with Marc Campbell getting the driving assignment on his other stable star. The field also includes T M Brave Heart (Jason Hughes), Elm Grove Intrepid (Brodie MacPhee), Mr Comraderie (Mike Stevenson) and Rancousy (Darren Crowe). Two-year-old filly sensation Saulsbrook Alana goes into her final riding a six race winning streak. Trainer Kevin MacLean has done a remarkable job with her for owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. Her resume speaks for itself. 11 races with eight wins, one second, two thirds and $43,623 in the bank. Marc Campbell will put her on the gate from post six. The best description of the headliner came from race analyst Les MacIsaac. "Looks like the only thing that's going to stop this filly is the conclusion of the racing calendar." Finalists Elm Grove Inarush (Mark Bradley) and rail-sitter Sail Through (Barrieau) have also put up some big numbers this season but it's going to be tough to knock-off the favorite. The rest of the roster for the filly final will be Sea Anna Win (Earl Smith), Pictonian Sareta (Mike Stevenson), Absolootly Hot (Brodie MacPhee), Outrageous Spirit (John Holmes) and Acton Royal Force (Bernard McCallum). In other action, All Turain has post 6 in the Preferred Pace in race 13 for trainer Trevor Hicken and his-owner Lee Hicken of Charlottetown. This guy has been headlining top classes around the region and comes off that big 1:52.2 performance on Breeders Crown Sunday for Brodie MacPhee. The Louis McIsaac Memorial for the fans leg 2 presented by Meridian Farms will be staged on races 6 and 8 with the open mares on race 11. Trotters Compete in Maritime Breeders Finals at Summerside; David Rose Memorial also on the Card. Summerside, PE - The spotlight is on the trotters in the Maritime Breeders Finals Sunday at Red Shores Summerside. Post time is 1pm with all the action being carried at www.redshores.ca. Fans can also watch and wager from Red Shores Charlottetown. Trainer-driver Garth Cole certainly had some luck with both his horses, Lets Trade Ladies and I Aint No Lady, drawing the rail in their respective divisions. The two-year-old trotters will go to the gate in race 4 with last week's winners Phantom Beau and Saulsbrook Pippa, both trained by John Pineau, leaving from outside posts. That could complicate matters especially with young trotters but the story gets better when Dusty Lane Galaxy drew post 2. This trotter has been dominating the competition but hasn't won since September 12 at the PEI Colt Stakes. Gary Chappell will do the driving for trainer Stacey Lund. The other starters include Scarlet MacDream (Marc Campbell), Hope Chest (Walter Cheverie), Glencove Yoshi (Mike Stevenson) and Villager (Brian MacPhee). I expect to see an upset. Taliesin leads the charge against the three-year-old $7,100 final from post 8 for Campbell. The son of Northern Bailey-Southview Leah was leading by three lengths in the Breeders Crown but rolled off-stride to finish fourth. The outside post isn't ideal but expect to see the Buntainwood Farm star on the front end when the wings fold. The other finalists are Rash Statement (Walter Cheverie), Irish Lullaby (Daniel MacDonald), West River Xcel (Clare MacDonald), Ashotinthedark (Corey MacPherson), Northern Trapper (Brian MacPhee) and Windemere Norma (Kenny Arsenault). The afternoon program features the David Rose Memorial leg 2 for the fans series in races 8, 10 and 12.

The pacer, owned by the Ultimate Stable of Greater Lakeburn, NB, toured the Prince County Oval in 1:57.4 sprinting home in 28.4 seconds to win by fourth lengths for Kenny Arsenault in his last start.
