Woodmere Skyroller redemption bound CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - After stringing together one of the richest seasons in the history of Atlantic Canadian Harness Racing, Woodmere Skyroller failed to hit the wire first in her inaugural trip to Open competition but will look to rectify that Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The Sunday presentation has 10-races scheduled for a 12:30 P.M. start time. Woodmere Skyroller will leave from the outside post 5 in the race 9 Fillies and Mares Open pace for a $2,500 purse with David Dowling in the bike for trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. A winner of $85,051 this year in her three-year-old campaign, Atlantic Champion Woodmere Skyroller cut out the mile on Nov. 15 over a sloppy track in her first Open Mares foray but was mowed down in the stretch drive and finished third to Filly Forty Seven and Temagami Seelster. Filly Forty Seven has post 3 on Sunday for trainer-driver Marc Campbell while Temagami Seelster leaves from the 4 hole with Kenny Arsenault in command of the reins from the Tom Weatherbie stable. Also in the field are Southwind Ion (Jason Hughes) and Lean On Who (Gilles Barrieau). The Sunday Post Time Picks has Woodmere Skryoller in the win position. "Woodmere Skyroller fell short as the heavy favourite her last start but that was a day that the front end was not a kind place to be. Had a short break after that start and now lands back in the Open ranks. It won't be easy for this sophomore to go all the way but her 11 wins this season tells you she is no slouch." The afternoon race 10 finale will see a red hot Smart Official take on seven foes from post 4 for a $2,500 purse. Barrieau drives the son of Art Official for trainer Peter Lanigan, who co-owns the pacer with Sandra Stead of Montague. Barrieau romped with Smart Official last week by eight-lengths in 1:56.4 for the horse's third win in his last four starts. Other top entries in that finale class are Flash In The Pang (Ken Murphy) and Hemingway (Adam Merner).

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Slamming out front-end fractions, Mr Kelly landed his nose on the wire first in the Doug Harkness Memorial Maritime Breeders three-year-old pacing colt final at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Adam Merner hustled the Ron Gass trainee to the lead in the $20,000 Maritime Breeders final but released stablemate Windemere Ryan (Driven by Marc Campbell) to the front at the 28.1 opening panel and quickly retook the front. The newly established leader, Mr Kelly struck the half-mile marker in 57.1 then found three-quarters in 1:26.2 before fighting off his pocket sitting stablemate for a head victory in the stretch drive in 1:55. Windemere Ryan was second while Windmere Albert (David Dowling) finished third. The victory was the ninth of the season for Mr Kelly, who increased his career bankroll to $58,048 for owners Marsha Knox and Kyla and Wade MacDonald of Stanhope. The 'King' of Island racing, Campbell, was the hot commodity of the day with five driving winners including the $23,000 Maritime Breeders three-year-old pacing filly final, in memory of Ken Starratt. Streakazana and Campbell won the championship final with a two-hole ride behind Woodmere Skyroller (Dowling) in some brisk fractions of 26.4, 54.3 and 1:24.2. The stretch drive saw Streakazana reach up for her MCR Streakazana ownership group and trainer Campbell in 1:54.1. Woodmere Skyroller settled for second while Red Dirt Star (Gilles Barrieau) completed the triactor. The win put Streakazana's seasonal earnings at over $49,000. Lofty Shadow was another Campbell winner in the maiden class in 2:00.1 from his own barn, while his other three wins were from catch drives. Campbell's trips to the winner's circle included Zack The Men (1:58.3) for trainer Michael MacDonald, La Vie En Rose (1:58.1) for trainer Stacey Lund and Shadow Of A Daut (1:57) from the Earl Watts stable.

The 13-dash Saturday presentation has a 12:30 P.M. opening post time with the $20,000 Maritime Breeders colt final hitting the track in race 11.

"Mr Kelly has an amazing eight wins on the season, a record of 1:54.1 and over $28,000 in the bank.

Barrieau Titans Battle In Summerside SUMMERSIDE, PE - The richest horse in the history of Eastern Canadian harness racing will take on four worth adversaries in the Sunday afternoon top class at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway. With 12-dashes on tap, the Prince County oval will unveil its first race at 1 P.M. on Sunday. The Rev brings his record $616,000 bankroll into the $3,050 preferred pace in race 11 of the day with Adam Merner picking up the catch drive for owner Jeff Skinner of Hammonds Plains, N.S., and trainer Gilles Barrieau. The richest Atlantic bred pacer of all-time The Rev has all ready won five races this season. Barrieau will steer another of his trainees in the field of five as Rose Run Quest, a 1:52.1 winner this season, leaves from post 5 for owner Blair Hansen of Charlottetown. Heart And Soul has been a hot commodity all season in Western P.E.I., and has post 4 Sunday as he looks to add to his 14 top-three finishes from 18 starts. Jason Hughes will steer the pacer for trainer George Riley. Other entrants are Screen Test (To be driven by Corey MacPherson) and Woodmere Ideal Art (David Dowling). Rose Run Quest is the top selection in the Backstretch Beat in Sunday's race program. "An argument could be made for every horse in this compact field but being the lone Governor's Plate champion in a race at the Summerside Raceway has to put Rose Run Quest over the top. He has been ultra-sharp every single week and can mow down horses like no one else on the Eastern Seaboard." The afternoon program will also feature the Isabelle and Ivan Cameron memorial scheduled for a 3:50pm post time in race 10. Rail sitter JJ Breanne has been established as the 5-2 morning line favorite for trainer-driver John Davidson of Saint John, NB. With just two more programs to go on the 2020 Summerside season, the driver's race remains incredibly tight. MacPherson leads the way with 30 wins, followed by Merner in second with 29 and Dowling third at 28 trips to the winner's circle. Hughes is not far behind boasting 26 victories on the season for fourth place. Marc Campbell is the top trainer so far with 12 winners followed by Ronnie Gass and Hughes tied in second place with 10 wins each.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - A trio of top-notch three-year-old harness racing fillies will face a triplet of grizzled veteran mares in the Thursday evening feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The capital oval has an 11-dash presentation on Thursday evening kicking off at 6 P.M. The $2,500 featured fillies and mares pace lines up in race 10 of the evening with Southwind Ion the morning line choice with rail control in the event. David Dowling is back at the controls for trainer Jennifer Doyle, who co-owns the daughter of Sportswriter with Danny Birt of Earnscliffe. A five-time winner this season, Southwind Ion has not drawn inside of post 6 since her last victory on September 24. Dustylane Zambucca has seen her stakes career come to an end earlier this month and the three-year-old daughter of Camystic will look to add to her $29,425 bankroll from post 3 on Thursday with Corey MacPherson at the lines.

Lyons Jennielee (Myles Heffernan Sr.) has post 2 while Filly Forty Seven (Marc Campbell) is shouldered with the outside post 6. Peter MacPhee with the Post Time Picks tepidly places Southwind Ion in the win position. "Southwind Ion finally gets an inside post and we're betting Dowling will be firing off the wings. You have to think she's going to get a great trip from here and may even reach up and win." The $2,400 Open trot takes to the track in race 8 of the evening with Mile Hill Willie the morning line choice from the outside in the field of six. Brodie MacPhee is back in the bike behind the Paul Morrison trained Mile Hill Willie as regular pilot Gilles Barrieau must drive his own trainee Cheeky Little Minx from post 3.
