SUMMERSIDE, PE - A mainland invader headlines the Sunday afternoon card at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway. Ultimate Luck has been installed as the morning line favorite by the race classifier, and with good reason. The six-year-old Camluck stallion was a bang-up second to Eagle Jolt in a speedy 1:59 mile over the rain soaked Summerside oval in last week's feature. Kenny Arsenault will drive the pacer for trainer Sifroi Melanson and owner Ultimate Stable of Greater Lakeburn, N.B. Upfront Ticket (Marc Campbell) is second pick after a fourth place finish in his East Coast debut. The Dragon Again pacer was racing conditioned classes at Western Fair Raceway in Ontario before making the trek east. Race analyst Jared Stretch has opted to go a different route, selecting Beckenbauer to upset the apple cart from 2 for trainer-driver Jason Hughes and owners Robi and Kurt Hughes of Stratford. The horse was victorious his last start in 1:59.1 at Red Shores Charlottetown. "He's been heating up to say the least with two victories in his last three starts and been doing it in impressive fashion," Stretch said of Beckenbauer. Other entries include Onehotvett (Wade Sorrie), Outside The Wire (Brodie MacPhee), McMaverick (Ken Murphy), Lucky Encounter (Norris Rogers) and Sa Summers Luck (Gary Chappell). Keystone Nobility has rail control in the back-up pace for a $1,600 purse for driver Chappell, trainer Alan Taylor and owner Kent Livingston of Cornwall.

The race will also see the Island debut of Darth Bader, co-owned, trained and driven by Ed Harvey of Fredericton, N.B., with co-owner Kathy MacLean of Truro. The owners claimed Darth Bader for $20,000 at Yonkers Raceway in New York in February and left him in the care of Island native Jason Ryan before taking him to the Maritimes.
