Dusty Lane Titan is favoured in the race 3 split for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Grayland Farm of Pugwash, N.S.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Bettim Jackie has been razor sharp in stakes competition against the top sophomore on the Eastern Seaboard but gets her toughest test to date against aged campaigners Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

"After being stuck on the outside for the past month Oh To Be Me lands in a favourable spot that should allow him to exploit that good late burst," MacIsaac said. "He could be the one to knock off." Rounding out the field is Narragansett (Driven by Jason Hughes) and The Big Bite (Kenny Arsenault). The top trot lines up in the race 5 D &G Younker Memorial for a $1,800 purse. Frill Seeker is the race favourite from post 4 for trainer-driver Kenny Arsenault and owner Ebbsfleet Stable of Stratford, Ont. Other top entries include Glencove Carter (Steven Shepherd) and Majian Tango (Jim Ripley).

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - After being plagued by breaks in stride in recent races, Prettyndangerous was firing on all cylinders Thursday night crushing her opposition in the featured pace in 1:55.4. Gilles Barrieau was in the bike for the journey as he stalked pacesetter Minor Wisdom (Driven by David Dowling) through fractions of 27.3 and 56.4 before moving to the lead before three-quarters in 1:26.4. The Bo Ford trainee powered forward to win by 10 lengths in the $1,500 class over Good Luck Kathy (Earl Smith) and Hurricane Hill (Mike McGuigan). Ford along with Arnold Myers of Charlottetown own the winning mare. Isabella Hanover found herself in the winner’s circle as she captured her first $1,950 Open trot on the East Coast. Adam Merner engineered the 1:59.1 winning trip for trainer Stephen Gass and owners Kent Livingston of Cornwall and Wade MacDonald of Stanhope. Dowling scored a driving triple on the program to give himself 993 career wins, just seven shy of the 1,000 win plateau.
