CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Brodie MacPhee knows that Ramblinglily is going to need a little luck to find the winner’s circle Sunday afternoon in the Atlantic Breeder’s Crown final at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at The Charlottetown Driving Park but he’s confident in her chances. First race post time for the 14-dash championship card is 1 pm. “She’s a good filly and she really impressed me last week in Fredericton,” MacPhee said of Ramblinglily 1:57.3 win Saturday in New Brunswick. “She was really strong.” The three-year-old Articulator filly, owned by Normand Leger of Shediac, N.B., and trained by Jean Belliveau, has post 3 in the race 11 $22,000 Atlantic Breeder’s Crown. Her main competition this season, Rose Valley, finished ninth in the Atlantic Sires Stakes points race and doesn’t make the rich final. “It’s good for my team,” MacPhee said. “(Rose Valley) was always there at the finish every week.” The 27-year-old Clyde River native’s main concern now lays in post 5 with Scootin For Joy (Mike Stevenson) but MacPhee isn’t going to make any concrete plans on how to defeat her. “I always try to go into those races with an open mind,” He said. “My filly is quick. If I decide to leave I’ll be going hard enough there will be a hole somewhere.” MacPhee has never won a Breeder’s Crown before. “It’d be nice to win it. It’s a big money event and she deserves it.

My horse is on top of his game right now. He’s sharp and (trainer Trevor Hicken) has him really good right now. I think he has a big shot.” The horse who won the other two preliminary legs is Big League (Corey MacPherson), who has post 5. “Big League is a front end horse,” MacPhee said. “My horse is not a big leaver. I’m going to have him fired up to get out of there and he’ll get away third or fourth at best. He’s a plugger and he’ll have to go the long mile I am sure.” Also in that race is Narragansett (Norris Rogers), Wild Dragon (Gilles Barrieau), Cambest Kisser (Jason Hughes), Balanchine (Ron Matheson), Leading Camdidate (Arsenault), Touch Of Lightning (Earl Smith), and Lucky Encounter (Cheverie).
