CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Woodmere Finesse stamped herself as the fastest Maritime Bred free-legged two-year-old to ever grace the East Coast in harness racing stakes action last month in Charlottetown but failed to garner enough points throughout the season to make the elusive Atlantic Breeder's Crown final.

The Maritime Champion will definitely be the one to beat in Atlantic Breeder's Crown consolation action Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The daughter of Articulator has post 1 in race 6 on the card, with race 1 action getting underway at 12:30 p.m.for the 13-dah program. Woodmere Finesse will have the services of Kenny Arsenault at the lines in the $5,000 two-year-old pacing filly consolation for trainer Jack Arsenault and owner Edward Maher of Nova Scotia.

The two-year-old pacing colt consolation lines up in race 8 with Island Energetic favoured from post 7 for trainer-driver Danny Romo and The Estate Of Brian Burgess.

Dustlanemissmolly has new connections and will be labelled the favorite in race 10 in three-year-old pacing filly Atlantic Breeder's Crown consolation racing. Marc Campbell drives the filly for new owner-trainer Jennifer Trainor of Earnescliffe.

The final consolation of the day lines up in race 12 with three-year-old pacing colt divisional heavyweights JJ Jodster (Campbell) and KD Overdrive (Gilles Barrieau) going toe-to-toe.
