CBC NEWS reports that the P.E.I.'s harness racing community has stepped up protective measures after the confirmation of an infectious disease at Red Shores in Charlottetown. One case of strangles, a bacterial respiratory infection, was confirmed last week in a young horse, resulting in the quarantine of about 25 horses According to the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission, the quarantine applies to horses kept in two locations: the stable at Red Shores belonging of Marc Campbell, a long-time and successful harness racer on Prince Edward Island, and at a farm in Winsloe. Campbell could not immediately be reached for comment by CBC News. The commissions said those horses must test negative for the disease three times before the quarantine will be lifted. "We did consult with veterinarians on-Island and off to make sure our protocols are current," said commission director Brett Revington. "It can be highly contagious." The commission has recommended other horse owners at Red Shores locations in Charlottetown and Summerside monitor their livestock for symptoms and monitor animals' temperatures twice daily. Fever is one early symptom of the disease. Horse owners at Red Shores are following the commission's advice. Jeff Lilley is taking temperatures of his horses at Red Shores in Charlottetown, following confirmation of the disease. "People need to be vigilant," said Lilley. "I don't know a lot about it. I think as long as they keep the barn quarantined, we'll be OK."  In addition to fever, strangles can cause breathing problems and inflammation of lymph nodes in the jaws of horses. Symptoms can last for weeks and, on rare occasions, the disease can be fatal, according to faculty members at the Atlantic Veterinary College. One round of the weekly testing of the affected horses in quarantine is already complete, according to Revington. "Everyone's been very proactive… to limit the exposure just to the one stable rather than spreading across the racing community," said Revington. Races scheduled at Red Shores in Charlottetown and Summerside continue as usual. The track has offered Campbell his own hours to jog the horses in his care to limit any contact with other animals.

Standardbred Canada reports that harness racing driver Marc Campbell parked 3-5 favourite Casimir Richie P through quick fractions and bottomed-out the field in progress to a 1:51.4 victory with Time To Dance in the $60,000 Gold Cup & Saucer Final on Saturday (Aug. 22) at Charlottetown Driving Park. Launching from post 2, Time To Dance dashed to the front around pylon-starter Lisburn as Casimir Richie P attempted to roll to the lead moving up the backstretch. However Time To Dance and Lisburn sealed any potential holes for Casimir Richie P, keeping the favourite hung past a :26.2 quarter and into a :54.1 half. “It’s not how I thought the race would end up,” Campbell said after the race. “I figured if I made [the] front I’d let Dale [Spence & Casimir Richie P] go. I was going to stretch him out a little bit, but he never really got close to me. Then I said ‘Well, I got to try and get a breather in here and see what happens.” Casimir Richie P began to drop out of contention up the backstretch as the field moved for three-quarters. Lisburn continued to chase Time To Dance from the pocket moving to three-quarters in 1:23.3 while Screen Test had room to tip off the pegs and take his shot, but then soon began to lose ground into the final turn. Into the stretch Time To Dance had Lisburn to turn away as Woodmere Ideal Art dove into the passing lane to give pursuit from third. Lisburn dug into the leader’s margin through the stretch but Time To Dance held firm to give trainer-driver Marc Campbell his third victory in the Gold Cup & Saucer. Woodmere Ideal Art finished third with Simple Kinda Man fourth. “He’s pretty tough off the front; we’ve got him off the front a couple of times before,” Campbell said after the race. “And he’ll dig—he’ll fight right to the wire. He’s been getting better and better every week; he keeps getting stronger on us. He’s really maturing into a nice horse.” A four-year-old gelding by A Rocknroll Dance, Time To Dance won his sixth race from 18 starts this season and his 13th from 47 overall, earning $105,613.

In the stretch driver Marc Campbell fed Imalookertoo racetrack and dashed by to a one-and-a-quarter length win with Little Manny third. Owned by Robert Sumarah, Imalookertoo won his second race from seven starts this season and his eighth from 17 overall, earning $17,191. Daniel Romo trains the $3.30 winner.

Campbell, driver Arc Light, tipped first over moving to a :58.1 half and pressured the pacesetter to three-quarters in 1:26.3. At the top of the stretch Arc Light powered past Berazzled but failed to hold off her stablemate, as Dreamfair Zenfire shot to a two-and-a-quarter length victory. Berazzled faded to third. A four-year-old mare by Sunfire Blue Chip, Dreamfair Zenfire won her fifth race from 12 starts this season and her 11th from 55 overall, earning $88,613. Ryan and Everett MacLeod own the $25.30 winner. Misty Memory N went wire to wire in the $4,000 Confederation Mares Invitational Series Consolation.

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."

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.

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).
