"Finished second to a red hot horse (Pinner) last week and has been charted in 1:56 and change in two of his last three, a time that would likely win this," MacIsaac said of Camcun. "Top billing." Camcun is co-owned, trained and driven by Arsenault with co-owner Dan Belliveau of Halifax. Capitalism (Gary Chappell) will have some say in the race off the rail while Mcjestic (Brodie MacPhee) is fresh off a win in 1:57.2 from post 6. Also in the field is Le Fugueur (Campbell), Honor Roll (Andrew), Libertys Art (Hughes), Tempo Seelster (Vincent Pouton) and McMaverick (Ken Murphy). Zip The Lip will look to continue his dominance of the Open trot in this week's $1,800 edition in race 4. Brian MacPhee drives the five-year-old son of Ken Warkentin for co-owner and trainer Donald Sweet and co-owner Orville Willis, both of O'Leary. The trotter will have to contend with the outside post 8 but if he continues to tower over his competition it should not make much of a difference. Other top entries include Abundaspin (Harold Shepherd) and Caliban Hanover (Ron Gass). Follow all the action live at Redshores.ca.  

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - McMaverick has rail control and the form to deliver a victory in the $1,750 Saturday afternoon top class at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. First race post time is 1 pm for the 12-dash card. John Holmes gets the call on McMaverick in race 11 for owner-trainer Keith Campbell of Tyne Valley, and the horse shows two wins, a second and a third with some less than favorable posts his last four starts. It will not be easy for the six-year-old son of Western Maverick, as race analyst Les McIsaac sees Camcun (Kenny Arsenault) a real threat to land in the winner's circle. "He's a versatile type with good early speed, when he wants to exploit it, and a dangerous late kick," McIsaac says of the post 4 starter. "Don't let the fact that he hasn't won in this class in a while fool you, because he can. Beware." They both face real threats from Tempo Seelster (Vincent Poulton) and Pinner (Marc Campbell) from posts 6 and 7, respectively. Also in the field is Western Bandit (Ken Murphy), Libertys Art (Gary Chappell), Honor Roll (Danny MacDonald), and Blue Star Outlaw (Jason Hughes). Capitalism is favored to win the $1,550 race 7 back-up pace for trainer-driver Hughes and owner Jason Collings of Mount Stewart. He faces eight tough opponents in Pictonian Zena (Shane Bernard), McJestic (Corey MacPherson), Windemere Maggie (Holmes), First Art Down (Brodie MacPhee), Van Zant (Ron Matheson), Sterling Seelster (Campbell), Freddy My Boy (Brian MacPhee), and Bowyer Hanover (Walter Cheverie). Sunday battle royale at Charlottetown Narragansett and Machinthesand will finally face off again in Sunday's race 12 $2,200 preferred pace after the latter was scratched last week. The action gets underway at 1 pm for the 13-dash event. Hughes trains and drives the outside starting Narragansett in the field of six for owner Foxyhall Racing of Wallace, N.S., while Brodie MacPhee steers Machinthesand from post 5 for trainer Mark Bradley and owners Noonan Holdings, and Russell and Karen Noonan of Middleton. Machinthesand scored a four length victory in 1:55.1 over Narragansett in their last outing. Other entries in the competitive field are Blu Meadow Willie (Robert MacInnis), Doll R General (Mark McKinnon), Ultimate Luck (Arsenault) and Lucky Encounter (Cheverie). Zip The Lip will have to navigate his toughest obstacle to date since starting his winning ways, as the son of Ken Warkentin has been assigned post 8 in the $1,800 race 6 Open trot. Don Sweet co-owns and trains the trotter with co-owner Orville Willis, both of O'Leary, while Brian MacPhee handles the driving chores. He has been victorious in five of his last six starts but has been able to secure the lead early on in the majority of those wins, and a top notch group of trotters will not make that easy this week. Who Took That (Mike McGuigan) has the rail and has shown some gate speed in her East Coast campaign, and former king of the open trotters Caliban Hanover (Ron Gass) leaves from post 4, while Zip The Lip's arch-rival Abundaspin (Harold Shepherd) has post 7. Other entries include Saulsbrook Balance (Willie Murphy), Diamond Mine (Brodie MacPhee), Wonderous Hanover (Corey MacPherson), Majian Dilion (Jim Ripley) and Tender N Kind (Steven Shepherd). The race 9 back-up pace should be hotly contested as three of the top mares in Eastern Canada face off against some gritty male racehorses. General Luckypercy has post 4 for driver Ron Matheson, trainer Jackie Matheson and owners Jodilynn Shepherd of Cambridge, Ont., and Jack Brown of Stratford. She will butt heads with Atlantic Aged Pacing Mares series champion Stayoutofmyaffair (Arsenault) with post 5 and iron sided claimer Le Fugueur (Campbell) with the rail. Also in the field is Veronicavermillion (Brodie MacPhee), Ebandtheboys (Murphy), Artist List (Bradley), and Cambest Kisser (Hughes). by Nicholas Oakes for Red Shores
