Summerside, PE - Motorino and harness racing driver Terry Gallant get the top call in the Canada Day pace Wednesday at Red Shores Summerside. Post time is 1pm.

The four-year-old black gelding, co-owned by Gallant and Eric Johnston, Summerside, PE, gets to side-step heavy weights Big Surf and D GS Camme and with his 1:55 clocking on his past chart line he goes into the race at 5-2 odds on the morning line.

The six horse field has American Captain off the rail for catch-driver Kenny Arsenault with Oh To Be Me (Gary Chappell) and Sunday's top class winner Machinthesand (Norris Rogers) back in to compete on the traditional holiday classic. Foxyhall racing stable sends out Narragansett (Jason Hughes) with Outside The Wire (Marc Campbell) completing the roster.

Race analyst Jared Stretch says Motorino will be tough to deny in this event. "He's been holding his own against some of the best horses in the Maritimes. If he brings that kind of talent to this race he's been a handful." Stretch's top three also include Narraganset and Outside The Wire.

In other action, the veteran campaigner Life Savior is going for his third victory in a row and lifetime win number 55 for driver Corey MacPherson, owner Darla MacEachern and trainer Duane MacEachern.

Tobins Lady is listed as the one to beat in the Woodmere Rose Memorial in race 5. The filly, who has five top three finishes from six starts, will leave from post three for trainer-driver Jason Hughes.

Customers are enjoying many on-track and off track wagering promotions in 2015 including a new Pik 3, Pik 4 and Super High 5. The mix also includes Wild Horses jackpot tags starting on race 2, a pick 5 ballot with a $500 prize, Play 4 and Super Pack tied to on track prize giveaways.

The countdown is on for Governor's Plate Week 2015. The action gets underway on Sunday July 12th and wraps up on Saturday July 18th with the 47th running of the Governor's Plate presented by Summerside Chrysler Dodge.
