SUMMERSIDE, PE - The best three-year-old pacers in The Maritimes invaded Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway Sunday afternoon and the 'King' of Island harness racing continued his red hot streak and stole the show.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - All the King's horses and all the King's men helped put another large night together again for harness racing driver Marc Campbell Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Nicknamed the "King" of the capital oval, Campbell scored six wins on the 10-dash card including the fourth win-in-a-row for talented three-year-old stakes prospect Island Energetic for one of four wins on the card from his own stable. The colt scored in 1:56.2 for trainer-driver Campbell and owners Bernadette Burgess and Grayland Farm of Nova Scotia to remain perfect on the season. Campbell won earlier on the card with fellow trainees Elm Grove Ladyluck in 1:58.4 and Johnny Moe in 2:00.1 then closed the program out with Hickory Chumley 1:59.1. The "King's" other winner's circle visits came aboard Yankee No More in 2:01.1 for trainer Darren Smith of Rocky Point and Rustlemewithevny in 2:01 for conditioner Neil Bambrick of Charlottetown. Mr Irresistible gained the lead in the ongoing grudge match with Adkins Hanover in the $2,250 preferred pace.

He has cemented his place as the most dominant harness racing driver in the history of Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park but the beat goes on for Marc Campbell. First race post time is 12:30 P.M. for the 16-dash card with Campbell sitting behind the presumptive favorite in the race 15 feature. The Winsloe driver broke his own all-time dash win record during last Saturday's program and now has three cards left to pad his total. Owned by Wilbur and Marie MacDonald of Orwell, Eagle Jolt has drawn post 6 in a field of seven featured pacers after playing bridesmaid to the dominant duo of D Gs Camme and Drivingthedragon N in recent weeks. With those top pacers absent in this week's $2,100 event, Eagle Jolt will face off with Forever Paradise (Driven by Corey MacPherson) from post 7 along with Smiley Bayama, who gets a heaping pile of post relief drawing the rail for reinsman Adam Merner. Race analyst Les MacIsaac is taking a different angle, as he looks to Smiley Bayama to regain the form that saw him race the top echelon of free-for-all pacers earlier this year. "He's been battling outside posts for the past couple of months so landing on the pylons is a big break," MacIsaac said of Smiley Bayama. "Since he shouldn't have nearly as much work to do late with a better beginning almost assured, he'll be hard to deny." Other entries include Woodmere Articblue (Ryan Desroche), Best Risque (Jason Hughes), IDK (Vincent Poulton) and Rash B Havior (Ken Murphy). The East Coast's top trotters square off in race 4 of the program with Campbell yet again favoured with Freddie from post 7 for owners Three Wisemen Stable of Cornwall. Carrying a $1,850 purse, the Open trot will again see Freddie face Holy Molie Maggie after trading blows in recent weeks. Gary Chappell drives Holy Molie Maggie for trainer and co-owner owner Jeff Holmes of Orwell and co-owner Trevor MacDonald of Vernon Bridge. The afternoon finale sees Jetta Flys ride a three-race win streak into the $1,600 race for driver MacPherson, who has been undefeated since teaming up the pacer, along with trainer and co-owner Stephen Quinn of Stratford and co-owner John Quinn of Charlottetown.

It was a historic Saturday afternoon harness racing card at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park as Marc Campbell notched his 131st driving victory of the 2016 season at Red Shores Charlottetown to set a new record for most wins in a single season. Campbell had been sitting on the win for an entire week and couldn't sit any longer, as he took charge with his own trainee Freddie in the Race 4 Open Trot. Campbell floated him off the wings in a six horse field from post six, riding the outside until the half and then clearing the fraction setter to drive on for the record setting victory. The Three Wisemen Stable are the owners of the 16 time winner in 2016. The ink on the record books was hardly dry when Campbell started to add to the record, scoring with Female Finesse later in the card to set the current total at 132. The 'King of Island Racing', who was recently nominated for the O'Brien Award for Horsemanship picked up his 200th driving victory on the season and his 63rd training victory with the win. The 'Blue Knight' and his dragon, Drivingthedragon N went to battle in the Saturday afternoon feature race and returned victorious once again. Handicapped with the outside post 8, it didn't take long for driver Jason Hughes to cross the mare over to the lead and dictate the pace. The daughter of Sutter Hanover picks up her second straight feature victory and third in her last four starts. Donald MacRae owns the ten time winner for 2016 who laid down fractions of :29.1, :59.3, 1:30 before closing it out in 1:59. A pair of Dusty Lane Farms employees enjoyed multiple wins at the office on Saturday, Donnie MacNeill scored a training and driving double and Corey MacPherson scored a driving triple closing out the afternoon card with Jetta Flys who picked up his third straight victory. The afternoon handle was $43,717. By Bo Ford

The final dash of the program sees Jetta Flys ride his two race win streak into post 4 for co-owner and trainer Stephen Quinn of Stratford and co-owner John Quinn of Charlottetown. The eight-year-old son of Rambaran has been undefeated since teaming up with driver Corey MacPherson on horseperson's day on Nov. 26. He will face a tougher test this Saturday afternoon with Simon Said (Arsenault) drawing post 2, Jetster (Campbell) with rail control and Doing Some Damage (Brian MacPhee) shouldered with post 8.
