CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The Fillies and Mares Open class has been all Marc Campbell, all the time this season and the Winsloe harness racing horseman will look for that to continue Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 11-dash Thursday card kicks off at 6 P.M. with a compact field of five mares set to face-off in the race 10 feature. The Fillies and Mares Open pace carries a $2,900 purse as the Campbell trained and driven Dreamfair Zenfire will leave from post 3 for owners Ryan and Everett MacLeod of Souris. The Sunfire Blue Chip four-year-old is batting 80 per cent on the season, with only one loss from five seasonal outings. Berazzled draws post 5 this week with David Dowling picking up the drive for trainer Jonah Moase and owner Neal Moase of Warren Grove. Berazzled has yet to miss the top three since coming to the East Coast. Race analyst Les MacIsaac expects a similar result to last week as he places Dreamfair Zenfire on top."Dreamfair Zenfire has won four of five this year with both of her local wins in 1:56," MacIsaac said. "With an inside post in a compact field the road to the winner's circle goes through her." Also in the field are Falls Creek (To be driven by Adam Merner), Miss Kabana (Vincent Poulton) and Much Adoo (Brodie MacPhee). The Open trot takes to the track in race 8 for a $2,500 purse as newly minted Maritime Champion Daisy River has drawn the rail position. Walter Cheverie will pick up the catch driver this week as regular driver Jason Hughes must drive his own trainee, Star Photo, from post 5. The William Lanigan owned and trained Daisy River recorded the fastest mile ever by a Maritime bred trotter in the Atlantic provinces last week while winning in 1:58.1. Freddie will loom the biggest danger assigned to the outside post 7 after winning the last two Open trot classes for trainer-driver Campbell. A number of high quality pacing fillies will spar in race 4 with $2,000 in play in what is sure to be a preview of the coming stakes season. An Atlantic Breeder's Crown champion last year at age two, Woodmere Skyroller makes her debut from post 6 with Dowling in the seat for trainer Kevin MacLean. The field also includes last year's talented stakes performers Watch Me Dance (Hughes), Ezra Express (Campbell) and Tobins Choice (Gary Chappell) among others.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - In what has been a common theme so far this season, the harness racing Marc Campbell stable will send out a powerful duo in the featured event Friday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 10-dash Friday card starts off at 6 P.M. with the $2,850 Preferred 2 pace lining up in race 9. The Campbell pair of post 4 starter Jetster (To driven by Adam Merner) and post 6 newcomer Time To Dance (Campbell) has the respect of the top two picks on the morning line odds. Jetster was victorious in this class last Friday with Campbell at the lines while Time To Dance delivered a five-length romp in his first East Coast assignment down a notch on the class ladder for owners Brent Campbell of Charlottetown and Matthew McDonald of Edwards, Ont. Race analyst Les MacIsaac elects to go a different direction as he sides with the red hot Brittany Watts stable and post 2 starter Creepinn (David Dowling). "Creepin lost his cover at the half last week which left him first up the rest of the way and that's back-to-back starts he's had to rough it," MacIsaac said. "He still got home in 28 and change though and with a smoother journey tonight he's a potential sleeper." Also in the preferred 2 field are Mantario (Kenny Arsenault), Beyondthesilence N (Chris Davies), Winter Blast (Jason Hughes) and Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.). The Open trot renews again on Thursday with a field of six top-flight trotters competing for the lion's share of the $2,500 purse. Freddie leaves on the far outside after delivering a mild upset in this class last week for trainer-driver Campbell and owners Three Wisemen Stable of Kingston. The 61-time winning Majestic Son trotter will have to overcome Glider Man, who will be looking for redemption from post 5 after falling short as the heavy post time favourite last week for the duo of driver Kenny Arsenault and trainer Jennifer Doyle. Hop Up takes a two-race win streak into the event leaving from post 2 for driver Corey MacPherson and trainer Keith Campbell. The field is rounded out by Supreme Monarch (Mike McGuigan), Windemeredontuworry (Norris Rogers) and Star Photo (Hughes).

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - This year has been full of unexpected twists and turns but Island harness racing has been twisting out more of the same as Marc Campbell, the dominant driver of the previous decade, just keeps on winning as he did Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The Winsloe reinsman scooped up half the races on Thursday's 10-dash card including delivering as the favourite in the featured Fillies and Mares Open pace aboard Arc Light from his own stable. The stakes graduating daughter of Camystic sat last in the $2,900 event while Much Adoo (Driven by Brodie MacPhee) set the tempo of 28.2 and 59.1. Berazzled (Mike McGuigan) then committed first-over with Arc Light taking the cover through the three-quarters of 1:28.1 before surging past in the stretch drive to complete the mile in 1:56.2. Berazzled was second with Miss Kabana (Vincent Poulton) third. Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S., holds the ownership papers of Arc Light. Campbell opened the card up with Ezra Express from his own stable in 1:59.1 then took a trio of catch driving scores with What A Babe in 2:00.2 for trainer Todd Walsh of Charlottetown, Scoot Out Of Here for trainer Vaughan Doyle in 2:00.1 and with Dueling Banjos in 2:01.4 for Jay Noye of Cornwall. Theskysthelimit broke her maiden on the program in 2:00.3 from the Eddy Doucette stable and brought driver Corey MacPherson closer to a career milestone with win 991 of the 31-year-old Cornwall resident's career.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The Marc Campbell harness racing stable will pack a one-two punch in the Thursday evening featured event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. First race post time is 6 P.M. for the Thursday card with the $2,900 Fillies and Mares Open the top class of the night in race 9. Starting with the Thursday card race fans will be able to place their wagers in the new drive-in betting venue at Red Shores Charlottetown from 12-4 P.M. on the trackside patio. That venue will also be offered from the same times on Friday and Saturday with patrons able to purchase tickets on live or simulcast racing at that time. In the Fillies and Mares Open, Dreamfair Zenfire was the boss in her East Coast debut last week for trainer-driver Marc Campbell but the Winsloe reinsman will elect to drive stablemate Arc Light from post 6 on Thursday after her impressive six-length victory in last week's back-up class. Open class winner Dreamfair Zenfire will have the driving talents of Walter Cheverie in the bike with post 4 for owners Ryan and Everett MacLeod of Souris. The Sunfire Blue Chip pacer pocket rode behind pacesetter Berazzled last week and won in the stretch drive. Berazzled will have Mike McGuigan back in the bike from the Jonah Moase stable from post 5. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will look for a similar result from Dreamfair Zenfire on Thursday as he pegs her on top."Dreamfair Zenfire had an impressive local debut and kept her perfect record for the 2020 season intact at 3 for 3," MacIsaac said. "She loses Marc but there's nothing wrong with Walter as a replacement and until she goes down to defeat, she's the one to knock off." Other entries in the top event are Private Di (To be driven by Kenny Arsenault), Miss Kabana (Vincent Poulton) and Much Adoo (Brodie MacPhee). The evening finale features the back-up class of pacing mares vying for a $2,400 purse. Woodmere Chella (Dowling) finished a close third to Dreamfair Zenfire and Berazzled last week and drops down in class this week for trainer Marvyn Webster and owner Valleygrove Farms of Kensington. The Atlantic Sires Stakes graduate will look for the first win of her five-year-old campaign. Top contenders in the class include Killean Finale (Ken Murphy) and Rocknrols Image (Jason Hughes).

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - While the 'King' of Island harness racing swept the final three dashes of the card, a record June wager was set on the Thursday evening season opener at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The capital oval was the first track in Canada to hold harness racing since March and the historic oval handled $102,308 on the 10-dash card in online betting as no spectators were allowed on site. Trainer-driver Marc Campbell gave Dreamfair Zenfire a perfect two-hole trip in her Island debut in the featured $2,900 Fillies and Mares Open pace for owners Ryan and Everett MacLeod of Souris. Time of the mile was 1:56. Race favourite Berazzled (Driven by Mike McGuigan) set the early tempo with splits of 28.4, 58.1 and 1:27.3 with Dreamfair Zenfire sitting on her back. The eventual winner angled out for the stretch drive to win by half-a-length over Berazzled with Woodmere Chella (David Dowling) rounding out the triactor. Howmac Blaze was an earlier winner for Campbell in 1:59.4 in a front-end score for trainer Michelle Myers of Cardigan. The final part of the Campbell hat-trick was from his own stable in the $2,400 back-up pace as Arc Light got away in the back of the pack and made a power move to the front heading to the half-mile marker. The Maritime stakes graduate unleashed a final half in 57 seconds to win by six-lengths in 1:58.2 over Miss Kabana (Vincent Poulton) and Killean Finale (Ken Murphy). Live racing continues Saturday evening at 6 P.M. at Red Shores Charlottetown with a 10-dash program. For race replays and more go to Redshores.ca. By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Usually known for his front end prowess, He's Marvalous employed off-the-pace tactics to capture the Marc Campbell - Driver Of The Decade harness racing pace Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The afternoon program was called Marc Campbell day at the capital oval with specials presentations and clips of Campbell's career throughout the card commemorating his decade long stint as leading driver. Myles Heffernan Sr., was in the bike for the 15-1 upset in the $2,600 Campbell Day Pace as He's Maravlous circled up to stop the clock in 2:00.1 over an off track. Bank Of Dad (Driven by Adam Merner) was second with Silverhill Buddy (David Dowling) third. Jackie Heffernan of Summerville holds the ownership papers on He's Marvalous, who rewarded his backers with a $647.20 triactor ticket. Creepin won the $2,900 preferred pace in 1:58.3 for the combination of driver Dowling and trainer Jim Quinn, who co-owns the pacer with Alex Quinn of York and Carl Peterson of Hunter River.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The top driver in the history of Prince Edward Island harness racing will be honoured Saturday afternoon with Marc Campbell Day at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.   The 'King' of Island racing, Campbell of Winsloe, will be the focus of the Saturday card as he is honoured as the top driver every year of the past decade.   The Saturday program kicks off at 12:30 P.M. with 14-dashes scheduled. Red Shores will have a banner up to recognize Campbell that the fans cane sign, a trackside presentation with a plaque from Red Shores as well as special video clips and races from the driver's career.   Race 13 is the Marc Campbell - Driver Of The Decade pace with a mainstay of the Campbell stable favoured in the $2,600 event. Eagle Jolt has post 2 for trainer-driver Campbell and owners Wilbur and Marie MacDonald of Stratford. The 13-year-old son of Village Jolt will look to add to his 64 lifetime victories from over 330 lifetime outings.   Burn Out Hanover looms a large danger from post 3 with Corey MacPherson in the driver's seat for trainer Jeff Holmes. A son of Well Said out of millionaire pacing mare Burning Point, Burn Out Hanover tired off the front in his latest over a heavy track rated five seconds off due to mud.   Race analyst Les MacIsaac will side with Burn Out Hanover to provide the upset in the Marc Campbell - Drive Of The Decade pace.   "As we said earlier, the front wasn't the place to be last week so we'll cut him some slack for not delivering as the chalk," MacIsaac said of Burn Out Hanover. "There's a ton of thirds there against some big time opposition so he could be sitting on a win."   Other entrants in the field are IC True Grit (Driven by Mike McGuigan), Bank Of Dad (Adam Merner), Santana Sass (Kenny Arsenault), Silverhill Buddy (David Dowling), Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.) and Jeb (Jason Hughes).   The preferred pace lines up in race 7 with Creepin the morning line choice after winning this class last week. Dowling is in the bike for trainer and co-owner Jim Quinn and co-owners Alex Quinn and Carl Peterson. Other top entries are the Jen Doyle trained duo of Winter Blast (Hughes) and Midnight Matt (Arsenault).   By Nicholas Oakes, for Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - On a muddy day with unseasonably high January temperatures, Silverhill Buddy was the only front end harness racing winner Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The David Myers trained pacer lead at every call in the New Year's Pace at the capital oval as David Dowling gave him a 2:04.2 steer over a track with a five-second variant. The six-year-old son of Proven Lover is owned by Myers along with Joanne MacRae of Charlottetown and Gwyneth McGuirk of Fort Augustus. After leading all driver for 10 straight seasons, Marc Campbell got a head start on the 2020 driving standings as he won the first dash of the calendar year with Fusspot in 2:06.3 then proceeded to win five more races on the program. Campbell won with Windsun Rebel in 2:04.3 and Scoot Out Of Here in 2:05.2 from the Vaughan Doyle stable of Charlottetown as well as Cougar Gal in 2:06.3 for Neil Bambrick of Charlottetown.

Red Shores released details on the Race Day broadcast that Saturday January 11th will be Marc Campbell Day to honor the driver's achievements over the past decade at the city track.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The 2019 racing season comes to a close Tuesday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park and the top driver of the decade says he can't wait to get started on another driving title. The 13-dash New Year's Eve program is scheduled for a 6:30 P.M. first race post time. Environment Canada has indicated the possibility of impending weather with officials at Red Shores making an announcement at 10 A.M. Tuesday morning on the status of the program. Winsloe driver Marc Campbell is poised to win his 10th straight dash title as he leads all drivers at the Capital oval with 136 trips to the winner's circle, ahead of second place Gilles Barrieau at 107 wins. The 35-year-old Vernon River native finds it hard to believe he was never heeded as top driver, with only Jason Hughes tying him in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. "It seemed to go by quick," the driver said. "Probably because of all of the ups and downs that come along with horse racing. I couldn't tell you the amount of weddings I was supposed to be in that I got there late or had to leave early because of horse racing." "Thankfully my friend and family still like me," Campbell jokes. Along with two O'Brien Award for Horsemanship and a pair of Gold Cup and Saucer victories, Campbell has made 2,319 trips to the winner's circle in his career, with over $5.2 million in purse earnings. "I feel like I'm just getting started. I'm driving way better now than I ever have, way differently than I ever have." The Tuesday program will also see the retirement of Dreamfair Van Dam, a longtime mainstay in the Campbell stable that recently returned back to P.E.I. from a lease arrangement in Nova Scotia. The 14-year-old pacer faces mandatory retirement before he turns 15, but will go out a winner in his final two races. "I go down in the basement in my house and the kids are watching Youtube of Gold Cup and Saucers or lord knows what," The father of four said. "Poor Dreamfair Van Dam is tired out, the kids have raced him 20 times a day the past week in the basement. The Youtube is getting worn out. But that is what it is all about, it's not all about money." One thing Campbell cannot praise enough is the racing product that Red Shores puts on at Charlottetown and Summerside. "The product here is second to none. I get to go to work at a nice place, nice track, nice facility. People think the racing isn't tough here but it's tough. Go buy a horse for $15,000 and you bring it down here and you could get throttled. There are a lot of great horse people here and it is tough."

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - On the cusp of history, the 'King' of Island harness racing dominated the final portion of the Sunday afternoon program at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Driver Marc Campbell won the final three dashes of the 10-race card including the race 9 featured pace aboard his own Rose Run Quest in 1:56.4. The Winsloe trainer-driver was on top for every piece of the mile before drawing off to a six-length victory.

Campbell other win from his own barn was with Eagle Jolt in 1:58.3 for the veteran pacers 64th lifetime win then the driver guided Forever Paradise to an open-length romp in 1:59 for trainer Kevin MacLean of Kinross. The three-win day by Campbell propelled the driver to an 18-race lead in the driver's standings with 122 visits to the Red Shores Charlottetown winner's circle. Gilles Barrieau sits in second place with 107 wins. If Campbell can hold onto the lead for the final four cards of the calendar year, he will again make history with driving titles every year of the decade.

Jason Hughes tied Campbell for leading driver in 2014 and 2015, with Campbell winning outright every other year. For Sunday afternoon race replays and more go to Redshores.ca.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - With a Maritime Champion harness racing season in her rear view mirror, Arc Light has risen to fight off the top mares on the East Coast every week and that will continue during a special Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 13-dash Saturday afternoon card has a 12:30 P.M. first race post time on Customer Appreciation Day, sponsored by the P.E.I. Harness Racing Industry Association. There will be thousands of dollars of prizes to be won including Cavendish Beach Music Festival tickets, an Ipad, an Iphone, a 65" Samsung Smart Tv, $1000 gifts cards for Sobeys and Feasible Fuels, and more. To qualify, customers mist simply wager throughout the racecard and winners will be selected at random through the wagering terminals. The top pacing mares square off in race 12 of the day for a $2,550 purse. Maritime Breeder's championship winner Arc Light has graduated to the Open Mares level since finishing her stakes campaign and has taken the task in stride, winning her last two outings for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S. Her latest win against Open company put her over $50,000 in seasonal earnings and the daughter of Camystic will strive for more of the same from post 5 on Saturday afternoon. Tell Me Why has been razor sharp as of late with six straight top-three finishes and will have post 1 on Saturday for driver Corey MacPherson and trainer Joe MacDonald of Breadalbane. Collective Wisdom garnered a cheque against the boys last week and returns to female company this week from post 4 with recent O'Brien Award of Horsemanship nominee Gilles Barrieau at the lines. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees the road to the winner's circle going through Arc Light. "It is hard to believe a three year old filly can be so dominant against aged mares but this one is," MacIsaac said of Arc Light. "She hit another gear up the back stretch in her last two and never looked back so you got to think a three peat is a distinct possibility." Rounding out the field is Mrs Dragonfire (Driven by David Dowling) and Drivingthedragon N (Jason Hughes). The trot war continues in race 7 for a $2,350 purse as Star Photo is the top choice in a compact field of five open trotters for driver Jason Hughes, trainer Kevin Gillis and owners Robi Hughes, Eric MacLauchlan and James Perrot of Stratford and Blair MacLauchlan of Charlottetown. Freddie went down to defeat in his latest and has post 4 this week for trainer-driver Marc Campbell. Can A New 'Quest' Begin At Red Shores? CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Rose Run Quest has been a dominate force in Atlantic Canadian harness racing all season long and he will look to reignite that magic in the Sunday afternoon feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 10-dash program will be the final regularly scheduled Sunday card of the season as racing switches to a Saturday only schedule starting next week. The first race of the day goes postward at 12 P.M. with the $2,950 featured preferred pace lining up in race 9 of the program. Trainer Marc Campbell will be in the bike behind Rose Run Quest from post 5 in the class as the morning line favourite in the compact field. The pacer bought himself a ticket to the $200,000 club in his latest but failed to make the winner's circle as he finished second to Woodmere Ideal Art while garnering enough earnings to meet the milestone. Blair Hansen of Charlottetown owns the seven-year-old son of If I Can Dream. The only horses to get their noses in front of Rose Run Quest in his last six starts were Woodmere Ideal Art, who is absent this week, and Euchred who is racing in Ontario. Post 2 belongs to Burn Out Hanover with Gilles Barrieau driving for trainer Jeff Holmes, while Varadero Hanover will guard the rail from the Jeff Wallace stable for driver Ken Murphy. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees the absence of the two horses that beat Rose Run Quest in his last two starts to be a sign of clear sailing this week. "Rose Run Quest has had back to back weeks without a win, which is an eternity for this guy," MacIsaac said. "Since the ones that managed to get the better of him in those starts are absent today there could be nothing to stand in his way." Other entries are Creepin (Driven by David Dowling) and Midnight Matt (Jason Hughes). The afternoon back-up pace lines up in race 8 with Mick Dundee pegged as the one to beat in the $2,600 class from post 3 fresh off of a trio of cheques earned at the preferred level. Don MacNeill of Cornwall owns, trains and drives his homebred pacer who will look to add to his five seasonal victories. Winter Blast (Hughes) and Eagle Jolt (Campbell) are listed as top contenders. The Eddie Power Memorial will line up in race 7 of the program with Three Truths favoured off the class drop from post 6 for driver Kenny Arsenault, trainer Paul Doyle and owners Jason Rice of Kensington and Darren Doyle of York.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Arc Light unleashed a devastating finishing burst to get up for the harness racing win in the Saturday afternoon featured finale at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The $2,700 top event saw Drivingthedragon N (Driven by Jason Hughes) leaving smartly off the wings to gain the lead and lay down splits of 30, 1:01.1 and 1:30.3 over a track rated three seconds off due to wind and wet conditions. Dancers Pass (David Dowling) duelled with that leader first over while eventual winner Arc Light and trainer-driver Marc Campbell were third over up until the final quarter. Arc Light was then launched three-wide approaching the three-quarters and circled up on her competition to nail Drivingthedragon N at the wire in 2:01.1 while Dancers Pass completed the triactor ticket. Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S., holds the ownership papers of the three-year-old Maritime Champion daughter of Camystic, who was winning her second straight race at this level. Star Photo (Hughes) cut out all the fractions and won handily in the $2,450 Open Trot in 2:02.4 over Sailor Blue (Ken Murphy) and Freddie (Campbell). Star Photo is owned by Robi Hughes, Eric MacLauchlan and James Perrot of Stratford and Blair MacLauchlan of Charlottetown. The Chris Davies stable of Cornwall scored a pair of winners, both with Adam Merner in the bike, as Always Reese stopped the clock in 2:04.4 and Miss Sangria won in 2:05.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Grabbing control of the race early from post 7, Rose Run Quest eased through the fractions as he delivered as the heavy harness racing favourite in the Sunday afternoon featured pace at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
