Charlottetown, PE - A power-packed field of harness racing pacers will headline the top class Saturday at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Post time for the 13 dash card is slated for 1pm. The action will be carried live at www.redshores.ca.

The pacer goes up against last week's feature winner Nobestbfor (Walter Cheverie) and Cambest Kisser (Jason Hughes) who put an end to Pinner's streak. Miracle Matts is a serious threat off the rail for driver Corey MacPherson and PC Shockwave is also a major contender from post 4 for driver Brian MacPhee and owner Scott MacPhail of Montague. MacPhee also has a live drive on Zip the Lip in the open trot in race 4. The trotter co-owned by trainer Don Sweet and Orville Willis of O'Leary gets top billing from race analyst Les MacIsaac. "Three straight without a win is an eternity for him but a combination of things contributed to that," said MacIsaac. "If Brian is able to get him to the front it could be all over." It won't be easy. The field is full of talent including rail sitter Honeymoonisover, Sandhill Angel, Abundaspin, Buckling Banbury, Caliban Hanover and Wonderous Hanover. Every Day, owned by Bill and Rachel Andrew, moves up to tackle the back-up class in race 7. The pacer has back to back wins for driver Brian Andrew.

Charlottetown, PE - Cambest Kisser, with catch-driver Kenny Arsenault in the bike, won the afternoon feature at Red Shores Saturday. The CDP oval was rated as good with a three second variant due to rain that fell most of the week. Pinner, the heavy post time favorite, put in a great race but finished second ending his winning streak at eight. Arsenault engineered the trip by coasting away fifth while a front end battle ensued between Miracle Matts (Corey MacPherson) and the race favorite, in line to Marc Campbell, on route to the opening quarter in a blistering 28.1 over the off track. Once Miracle Matts made the lead Campbell put the Brian Ladner trainee back on the point with the half mile reached in 59.1 and the three-quarter station charted in 1:29.4 with pressured being applied to the leader from Panacotta (Blaine Baglole) from the outside. Cambest Kisser, owned by Donald and Steven MacRae of Vernon Bridge, came flying from the backfield to catch a fading Pinner in the stretch. The mile time was 2:01. Miracle Matts hung on for third. Buckling Banbury won the open trot in 204.2 for Corey MacPherson and co-owners Bill, Brian and Blake Andrew. Fraction setter Zip the Lip was second with Delta Dental third. Campbell and MacPherson recorded driving doubles. A scary situation unfolded in the first race when one of the reins broke on Glencove Victor just as the wings folded on the starting gate. Driver Mike McGuigan tried to control the runaway horse even attempting to reach up and grab the rein while going along the outside surface of the track. McGuigan had to jump off the bike just seconds before the horse crashed through the outside fence. Remarkably, Glencove Victor walked away without any injuries. McGuigan returned to driving duty after the incident. For complete results go to www.redshores.ca by Lee Drake for Red Shores

This will mark Middleton's first trip to the Island. "I think it's a perfect fit to have this year's event in the home province of the awards' namesake, Joe O'Brien. I know Maritimers are extremely proud and passionate about harness racing, and I'm sure it will mean a lot to them to have the opportunity to host this year's edition - especially since there are a number of finalists with ties to PEI," commented Middleton, "This will be my first visit to PEI and I'm really looking forward to it."

Charlottetown, PE - Pinner has been established as the favorite in the afternoon feature event Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino but odds makers have labeled two horses with a shot of ending his winning streak. The track crew did an amazing job with the CDP oval getting it prepped for the 13 dash card. First race post time is set for 1pm. Marc Campbell has the driving assignment as Pinner, owned by Kevin, Lillian and trainer Brian Ladner of Charlottetown, goes for his eighth consecutive victory. The son of Mach Three headlines the power-packed six horse field. Race analyst Les MacIsaac said it all in his column. "There's not much more you can say about a horse that's won seven in a row. Looks like the only thing that will stop him is the end of the meet." You can review all the picks at www.redshores.ca. McJestic (3-1) and Cambest Kisser (7-2) will try to spoil the party. Cambest Kisser (Jason Hughes) went after Pinner early in the last start in an attempt to rough up the favorite but that didn't work and he settled for second place. On the other hand, McJestic draws the rail and shows some fast closers so that may help to grab a piece of the triactor. Brodie MacPhee will drive McJestic for owner-trainer Troy Murray of Cornwall. Panacotta (Mark Bradley), Miracle Matts (Corey MacPherson) and Nobestbfor (Walter Cheverie) will also make this match interesting. In other action, Van Zant is the morning line favorite for team Matheson in the back-up class. McMaverick from the Keith Campbell stable of Tyne Valley and Stayoutofmyaffair are also top candidates. Pictonian Walton goes for his third win in a row in the afternoon finale for young driver Brandon Webster. Webster, who recorded his first lifetime win back on November 16, rallied for a win on New Year's Eve and then came back last week for another victory after being parked the entire mile. The 21 year-old Morell resident takes Pictonian Walton from post four for owner Roger MacRae of Belfast. Red Shores is proud to launch the harness racing fans choice awards. The ballot is located in the on-track race program. Fans can select their favorites in several categories. The winners will be announced in a few weeks.

The time of the mile was 1:59.2 over a track rated "good" with a two second variant. Campbell hustled the favorite off the gate from post 5 to the lead but Cambest Kisser, with Jason Hughes in the bike, decided to take him on early touching down on the front through a brisk opening panel of 29 seconds flat. Campbell returned to his game plan moving Pinner back to the point through a 59.2 half with a rated third panel reached in 1:29.2. The Brian Ladner trainee breezed home for his 33rd lifetime score for co-owners Kevin and Lillian Ladner of Charlottetown.
