CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The top  harness racing pacing mares in Eastern Canada will again square off this Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash Saturday card kicks off at 12:30 P.M. with the top mares pace of the day lining up in race 11 for a $2,550 purse. The Time To Win comes into the race sporting a win and second in her last two starts with Corey MacPherson subbing in as the driver for trainer Jackie Matheson and owner Woodmere Farms of Marshfield. The five-year-old daughter of Western Ideal is a three-time winner this season racing primarily at Rideau Carleton Raceway outside Ottawa. She won her Open Mares assignment on Oct. 19, and then was second to pacing horse Eagle Jolt in a mixed class in her last start. Maritime Champion Arc Light moves into aged competition in this race but the three-year-old filly has rail control for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S. Dancers Pass (Driven by David Dowling) was a winner in her last two starts but takes on her toughest test to date in this race leaving from post 3. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sides with The Time To Win for the top spot. "The Time To Win was a bang up second last week despite being first up before the half so if she's able to pick up some cover today instead of providing it she'll be hard to deny," MacIsaac said. Also in the field is Mrs Dragonfire (Adam Merner), Imagine Speed (Dale Spence), West River Ambyr (Steven Shepherd), Collective Wisdom (Ron Matheson) and Jordies Hope (Jason Hughes). Freddie and Star Photo are set to tangle in the race 11 Open Trot for a $2,300 pot. Star Photo cruised to victory in his latest with a 28.4 final panel for the team of driver Hughes and trainer Kevin Gillis. The veteran has post 3 to start from this week while Freddie (Campbell) leaves from post 2. Labero has quietly put together a solid season with five wins, fives second and three thirds and has rail control in the class with Walter Cheverie in the seat. Rose Run Quest Looks To Continue Dominance Sunday CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - There has been nothing standing in the way of the winner's circle for Rose Run Quest in the preferred ranks in recent week and he will look for more of the same in the featured event Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The capital oval will host racing Saturday and Sunday for the next four weeks with post time at 12:30 P.M. Sunday's 13-dash program has the preferred pace hitting the track in race 12 for a $2,900 purse. Rose Run Quest has the outside in the field of seven by virtue of his three straight victories at this level. Marc Campbell trains and drives the son of If I Can Dream for owner Blair Hansen of Charlottetown. Nogreatmischief leaves from post 5 in the Sunday contest after a victory in the top class on closing day at Red Shores Summerside for trainer-driver Walter Cheverie. Screen Test has post 6 with Corey MacPherson at the lines after a third place finish at this level last time out. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees the race as Rose Run Quest's to lose. "Rose Run Quest has been so dominant in his last three starts that you got to believe the road to the winners circle goes through him again, post seven or not," MacIsaac said. Other entries include Varadero Hanover (Driven by Ken Murphy), Best To Hurst (Jason Hughes), IC True Grit (Mike McGuigan) and Rockin Indy (David Dowling). The back-up pace will line up in race 11 as Souverain looks to extend his four-race win streak with rail control for driver MacPherson and owner-trainer Phil Sizer of Kensington. Other top entrants in the $2,400 class are Eagle Jolt (Campbell) and Bank Of Dad (Adam Merner). For more information or to tune into the worldwide broadcast go to www.Redshores.ca.

Getting away fourth in the $2,300 featured pace, Collective Wisdom was moved first-over by driver Gilles Barrieau while moving to the half-mile marker.

Charlottetown, PE - The live harness racing program slated for Saturday afternoon at 12:30pm will now go Monday night at 6pm at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Red Shores, along with harness racing officials, made the announcement as Prince Edward Island deals with heavy rain in the forecast. The Sunday program will go as scheduled at 12:30pm. Stallions will outnumber the geldings as the top pacers head to the gate in the preferred pace Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 14-dash presentation kicks off at 12:30 P.M. with the Preferred pace lining up in race 13 for a $2,650 pot. Rollwithitharry gets top billing from post 4 in the compact field of five. Walter Cheverie gets the catch driving call behind the 10-year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover for trainer Jackie Matheson and owner Woodmere Farms of Marshfield, P.E.I. Absent from the racing scene for over three years, Rollwithitharry has been standing stud on P.E.I., and returns to racing after successfully selling his first crop at public auction this past month. The pacer was a convincing winner in 1:56.2 in his latest start but goes up a notch on the class ladder to find some warhorses that have been slugging it out every week. Winter Blast defeated his foes in last week's Preferred pace and gets the rail to work from this week for driver Jason Hughes and conditioner Jennifer Doyle. Three Truths saw his hot streak come to an end last week with a sixth place finish ending his top three streak. Kenny Arsenault will again drive the son of Shadow Play with an improved post this week as he scores 2. Not to forget Czar Seelster, who has been a force on the Invitational circuit all season and will look for revenge after a fourth place finish in his latest with Mike McGuigan at the lines. IC True Grit rides a trio of top three finishes into the event with post 3 for driver Ron Matheson. Race analyst Les MacIsaac like the fresh demeanour of Rollwithitharry to put it all together. "His back class really showed up last week when he left an excellent field in the dust," MacIsaac said of Rollwithitharry. "These will be tougher but off that performance and with the aforementioned back class, it's hard to rule out a repeat." The back-up pace on the program hits the track in race 10 for a $2,350 pot with Pictonian Storm leaving off the rail, looking to help rookie driver Austin Sorrie knock off Corey MacPherson and make history. The 19-year-old Montague driver is in the midst of a red-hot first season in the race bike with 28 wins going into the weekend while MacPherson holds the record for most wins by a first-year driver on P.E.I. with 31 wins in his 2009 rookie campaign. Sorrie, who already holds the distinction of recording the fastest win by a rookie driver on the East Coast, has 12 drives between the Saturday and Sunday programs at Red Shores Charlottetown to help his drive to the history books. Prettyndangerous Aims For Repeat In Open Mares Monday Night The top pacing mares on Prince Edward Island convene for a rare Monday meeting with some young talent in the mix at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash Monday night program kicks off at 6 P.M. at the capital oval. Race 11 has the $2,350 fillies and mares Open pace with Prettyndangerous looking for a repeat performance from post 3. David Dowling will look to add to his solid first full season driving on the East Coast with the Bo Ford trained mare.  The daughter of Armbro Deuce rides a quadruple of top three finishes into the event for owners Ford and Arnold Myers of Charlottetown, P.E.I., but races in an event with some new blood this week. R Es Shabla's stakes career is officially over and now the talented sophomore daughter of Pang Shui will move into aged competition, getting post 1 for the biggest test of her career with Mike McGuigan in the bike. Collective Wisdom has been knocking on the door in each of her Open starts but loses regular pilot Gilles Barrieau, who has moved his stable back to New Brunswick. That gives the opportunity to rookie driver Drew Neill to pick up the lines of the 3-1 second choice in the morning line for trainer Jackie Matheson. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees a repeat performance of last week in the future of Prettyndangerous. "Prettyndangerous has been looking more like her old self in recent weeks and last time out was a fairly comfortable winner," MacIsaac said. "Since she's facing many of the same rivals today from an improved post we won't rule out a repeat." Other entries include Drivingthedragon N (Driven by Jason Hughes), Julep Hanover (Wade Myers), West River Ambyr (Steven Shepherd) and Killean Finale (Ken Murphy). The $1,950 Open trot hits the track in race 6 with Majian Tango looking to rectify his break as the betting favourite in last week's edition of this race. Jim Ripley trains and drives the son of Tad The Stud from post 2 and is again installed as the morning line favourite. Maritime Champion Buddy White has drawn post 1 as he moves out of stakes competition into the Open ranks for driver Adam Merner and trainer Blayne White of Belle River, P.E.I.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Front end tactics was all it took for IC True Grit to find the winner's circle in the Thursday evening featured pace at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

"Give Em Heck is steadily climbing the class ladder but he's yet to taste defeat since teaming up with Gilles and lady luck seems to be on his side draw day.," MacIsaac said.
