CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - An evenly rated trip led to the winner's circle in Drivingthedragon N's latest outing and she will look for a replication in the Thursday evening feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash program starts off at 6:30 P.M. with the top class of the evening featuring seven female pacers vying for a $1,700 purse.

Race analyst Les MacIsaac is taking another direction and will look to post 6 starter Julep Hanover and trainer-driver Wade Myers to prevail. "Julep Hanover can kick home with the best of them so she'll need some early pace to make that late rally work," MacIsaac said. "With the way the field is set up there's a good possibility of that so we'll give her top billing." Also in the Thursday night feature field is Diduseethat (Marc Campbell), One Hot Camshaft (Ken Murphy), Swingirl (Corey MacPherson) and Cougar Gal (Mike McGuigan). The top trot of the evening lines up in race 6 for a $1,800 purse. Majian Tango is the morning line choice from post 3 for trainer-driver Jim Ripley and owner Marylea Ripley of Amherst, N.S. Other top contenders include Suicide Shift (Steven Shepherd) and Dusty Lane Jacob (MacPherson).

Race 3 contains a field of five two-year-old pacing fillies that are eligible to the Lady Slipper stake vying for a $2,500 purse with Elm Grove Nanci (Murphy) favoured off the rail. Race 5 has a field of five two-year-old Joe O'Brien Memorial eligible pacing colts going for a $2,500 purse. Oceanview Helios (Walter Cheverie) is the top selection in that event.

Jason Hughes of Stratford, PE and Corey MacPherson of Vernon Bridge, PE will be heading to London, Ontario, this week to compete in the National Driving Championship (NDC) for harness racing at The Raceway at the Western Fair District on Friday, October 14. The winner of the NDC will be Canada's representative in the 2017 World Driving Championship hosted in Canada next August. Standardbred Canada co-ordinates four regional events across the country, and drivers had to earn their way into the NDC by finishing first or second at their Regional Driving Championship. Hughes earned his spot by winning the Atlantic Regional hosted at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at CDP on June 25 and MacPherson took the runner up spot. The National Championship is an eight race event and drivers earn points based upon their finishing positions. Drivers will also have some input into the horses they drive as a hockey pool style "draft" will be done and drivers will choose their horses from horses entered. This is a first time NDC appearance for both Hughes and MacPherson who warmed up for the big event via this past weekend's Atlantic Breeders Crown at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at CDP. "It's a tough field," says Hughes of his seven competitors. "There are a lot of great drivers and I'm just hoping to be close to the front in most of the races so the other guys have to go around me." Hughes has been driving and training horses since the early 90s, and his career has steadily been improving the past five seasons. Hughes has a 20 horse stable and also works full time as a Maintenance & Recreation Supervisor for the Town of Stratford, where he's been for 20 years. "I get to the barn very early in the morning and very late at night and I have a great help," says Hughes of juggling the two full time jobs. Hughes managed wins in an Atlantic Breeders Crown consolation and an Open Pace during this past weekend. Corey MacPherson is into his 8th season of driving and is coming into the event in fine form. MacPherson had a win, third and fourth in Atlantic Breeders Crown finals and the previous weekend he took two divisions of the Joe O'Brien Stakes and two wins in the Lady Slipper. There are also three other drivers with strong Island connections competing in the NDC. James MacDonald, son of Islanders Fred and Gail MacDonald (Fred is the editor of Atlantic Post Calls and Gail is the track photographer for Red Shores), and one of the Woodbine Entertainment Group Circuit's top drivers will be attempting to win the title. Brandon Campbell from Calgary, Alberta, and a top reinsman at Century Downs Racetrack and Casino is the son of former PEI horseman, Sanford Campbell. Brett MacDonald lived on the Island with his family for several years and drove in the matinee program. Here is the complete field of drivers for the National Driving Championship: Brandon Campbell, of Calgary, AB; Guy Gagnon, of Gatineau, QC; Trevor Henry of Arthur, ON; Jason Hughes, of Stratford, PE; Brett MacDonald of Embrun, ON; James MacDonald, of Guelph, ON; Corey MacPherson, of Vernon Bridge, PE; and Jim Marino, of Surrey, BC.
