One of the most successful and dedicated harness racing horsemen on PEI is a man by the name of Boyd MacDonald. Boyd has raced horses here on PEI, especially right here in Summerside going back as far as 1970. Before Boyd got his license to drive horses in 1973, other people did the driving. Junior Chappell would be the driver of his first horses, Post Road Sport and Happy One, and then Reg MacLure became the regular pilot of Boyd’s horses. Boyd bought so many horses and brought them here to PEI, not only for his enjoyment and fun, but to make our harness racing product better and something to be proud of. He raced his horses in both Summerside and Charlottetown but he seemed to have a lot of love for Summerside, as when I was a little boy, I can remember Boyd racing here every week. Some of the horses that Boyd campaigned over the years, (and I also should include his trainer Everett Lowther, who worked for Boyd for many many years and is quite a likeable character.) include Post Road Sport, Rhythm Girl, Happy One, Martown, Hawaii N, Rosie Joe, Seaport N, Nikey Irene, Knalman, SH Shrimp, Double Command, Scheme A, Shaleen Globe (a very good New Zealand bred mare and just one of many New Zealand breds that Boyd brought to PEI), Lucky Leita, as well as Fairly Lucky, Lindsay N, Island Gem and Brilliant Hanover N (all four of these co-owned by Doctor Erwin Howatt, another great fella), Laura Vee Haines, Millippa (another top class mare), Ad Painter and the list goes on and on.

SUMMERSIDE, PE - Fresh off a dominating performance on Saturday afternoon during Gold Cup and Saucer week, Soccer Hanover will lead the way in the featured pace on a special Wednesday evening harness racing card at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway. The Prince County Oval has 13-dash slated for a 6 P.M. Wednesday start and Soccer Hanover will race in event number 12 of the evening from post 5 in the 100th start of his career. The compact field of pacers will battle for the lion's share of the $2,450 purse with Corey MacPherson back in the bike behind Soccer Hanover after a five-length victory in his last start in a dazzling 1:53.4 for co-owner and trainer Leith Waite and co-owners Les and Spencer Waite. The six-year-old son of Dragon Again has made four trips to the winner's circle in 2020 and has 16 lifetime wins from 99 starts. Maritime Champion Heart And Soul has been on top of his game this season and will get Jason Hughes in the race bike from post 4 in the top event for trainer George Riley. Paris Beau scored a narrow upset in the Wal and Joe Hennessey Memorial in Charlottetown last week and will see Gilles Barrieau pick up the catch drive for trainer Doug Beckwith of New Brunswick. Brandon's Glory (To be driven by Dale Spence) has rail control and Mantario will reunite with Brodie MacPhee from post 2. The Backstretch Beat in Wednesday's race card has Soccer Hanover as the top choice. "Soccer Hanover draws the outside but the short field should make that a non-issue. After that 1:53 and change performance in his latest there is no doubt the road to the winner's circle goes through him." The back-up pace of the evening lines up in race 10 with $2,200 at stake. Howmac Magic has rail control for driver Barrieau, trainer and co-owner Paul Biggar of Tyne Valley and co-owner Donald Callbeck of Kensington. The Articulator pacer will look for win number seven of his career. Also in the back-up class, Flowersonthebeach (Ken Murphy) has post 2 and in a harness racing oddity will race against his sire Varadero Hanover (David Dowling) who has post 4. Brothers Jeff and Devon Wallace train the pacers, respectively. Go to Redshores.ca for race programs and more and wager online at HPIBet.com. By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The fastest horse in the history of Nova Scotia harness racing will make the trek across the Northumberland Strait to take on the Saturday evening harness racing feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 11-dash Saturday card has a 6 P.M. post time with Yankee Osborne drawing post 5 in the field of six featured pacers in race 10 fresh off a 1:52 victory in the Lindsay Construction Cup at Truro Raceway. Neill MacInnis will be driving the Gold Cup and Saucer hopeful in Saturday's $3,100 preferred pace for trainer Ross MacInnis and owner Sarah Jane Stables of Mono, Ontario. The five-year-old son of Yankee Cruiser was a private purchase from the Burke stable of Pennsylvania in the Spring. Simple Kinda Man was the runner-up to Yankee Osborne in that track record performance but he is being billed as the top choice with rail control for driver Jason Hughes, trainer Chris MacKay and owners D Racing Stable of New York and Don MacRae of Vernon Bridge. Simple Kinda Man knocked off the top pacers in Charlottetown last week with a head decision in 1:53.4. Third choice is Avatar J from the Danny MacDonald stable of Charlottetown with Gilles Barrieau at the lines from post 3. The 20-time winner last went to the gate in Truro, finishing fifth to Yankee Osborne, pacing his own mile in 1:53. Freddy Bear makes his East Coast debut from the outside post 6, moving into the Marc Campbell stable with Campbell at the lines. Owned by a numbered Ontario company out of Ottawa, Freddy Bear has been racing the conditioned ranks at Woodbine Mohawk Park in Campbellville, Ontario. Race analyst Les MacIsaac takes Simple Kinda Man for the top of his triactor selection. "Simple Kinda Man is a versatile type with good early speed and a dangerous finishing kick, both of which he can exploit with rail control," MacIsaac said. "Timing and trip are crucial in a rfce like this and the post advantage he has can only boost his chances." Also in the field are Soccer Hanover (To be driven by Walter Cheverie) and Screen Test (Corey MacPherson). Former Stakes Star Favoured In Summerside Feature SUMMERSIDE, PE - A full slate of 12-dashes will be featured Sunday afternoon in Prince County Harness Racing at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

Walter Cheverie will steer the Maritime Champion son of Western Paradise from post 5 for trainer George Riley and owner Riley Farms of Summerside. A winner of 28 lifetime races and $104,849 in purses, Heart And Soul will leave from post 5 in the field of seven. Pillage And Burn has been unheeded at every fraction since being claimed for $8,500 in Truro by owner Perry Burke of Quebec and placed in the Trevor Hicken stable. The Cam's Card Shark nine-year-old will leave from post 3 on Sunday with Brodie MacPhee in the bike as he looks for his third straight Island victory. Mystery Phil knocked off the top event last Sunday and has another good starting spot from post 4 for trainer Melissa Rennie and driver Adam Merner. The Backstetch Beat in Sunday's program lists Pillage And Burn as the top choice to find his nose on the wire first. "Pillage And Burn has yet to taste defeat in the Hicken stable so we'll wager today will not be the day that changes," reads the beat. Also in the field are Phil Dorleans (To be driven by Ken Murphy), Woodmere Ideal Art (Robert Laffin), Jeb (Jason Hughes) and Mach It Again (Dale Spence). Mantario leads the way in the race 9 back-up pace for a $2,200 pot. MacPhee picks up the catch drive for trainer Dale Sobey and owner Walter Simmons of Summerside.
