CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The Colin Johnson harness racing stable has made the permanent move to P.E.I. and will look for its first bite of glory Saturday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash Saturday presentation gets underway with a superb card kicking off at 6 P.M. The Johnson barn has been a powerhouse stable for years in Quebec and Ontario harness racing and has also visited the winner's circle in the prestigious Gold Cup and Saucer race in 2000 with Canaco Simon and 2002 with London Mews N. GA Speed Sammy has been saddled with the outside post 6 in the race 11 preferred pace and the Johnson trainee will pick up the services of driver David Dowling, who currently sits second in the Red Shores dash race behind Gilles Barrieau. The $3,200 top event has GA Speed Sammy installed at 3-1 morning line odds with him last making a start on March 22 at Western Fair Raceway in Ontario where he won the $13,000 preferred handicap class in 1:54.3 on a front end mission. He will have some stiff competition to his inside with Avatar J (Gilles Barrieau) drawing post 4 after finishing second in sloppy conditions in last week's top event. The winner of that race, Bugsy Maguire (Austin Sorrie) will leave from post 5 this week as the morning line favourite. Race analyst Peter MacPhee with the post time picks places GA Speed Sammy in the win position. "GA Speed Sammy is a newcomer to P.E.I. but looked great at Western Fair back in March when he wired them in 1:54.3," MacPhee said. "We're thinking David will want to call the shots and if they do clear the front he could be tough to track down." Also in the preferred field are Mick Dundee (Don MacNeill), Soccer Hanover (Corey MacPherson) and Chocolate Swirl (Jason Hughes). The back-up class hits the track in the race 12 finale with Kataparka riding a two-race win streak into the event with Barrieau back in the bike for trainer Ron Gass and Island owners Jeremy Hoffman and Lynn Livingstone along with Alberta's Jeffrey Campbell and Kevin Teasdale. Other top entrants are Diamond Call (Mark Bradley) and Burn Out Hanover (Barrieau). Red Shores opened the 2021-2022 meet in Charlottetown Saturday May 8th to some huge gains in wagering despite a perfect storm of events. The unpredictable weather conditions of spring brought wind, rain, and power outages but that did not stop the operations team, horsepeople or horseplayers. All of the races ran as scheduled and the wagering resulted in a gain of 71% compared to the pre-COVID opening program in May 2019. "It was just a wild day with the weather and it seemed like we were fighting issues throughout the whole card", said Lee Drake, Manager Racing & Broadcast. "Despite all of that we got off to an incredible start with the races and wagering. We are so thankful to everyone for making that happen." There was a brand new look and feel to the HD video production this year as well with the completely redesigned graphics package that was introduced. "We were trying to do a number of new things for the start of our meet to freshen our look and appeal to fans with the new Jackpot Hi5 and more $0.20 bet minimums", continued Drake. "We have been getting some great feedback on our new look with the graphics and with the changes to the pools. This is shaping up to be a very exciting season of racing."

Bugsy Maguire was well in command of the opening feature of the summer harness racing season at Charlottetown Driving Park on Saturday, braving a sloppy track for a front-end romp.   Austin Sorrie, the 2021 Future Star Award O'Brien recipient and P.E.I. native, directed Bugsy Maguire to forge to the front from post four, and the pair took the lead prior to the quarter in :30.1. Sorrie managed a half in 1:02.3 and three-quarters of 1:34.3 and turned for home with a three-length gap to pocket-sitter Screen Test (Corey Macpherson) and a greater one to the three others.   It was all academic from there as Bugsy Maguire paced home a two and a quarter length winner in 2:03.1. Avatar J (Gilles Barrieau) rallied from the three-hole to take place; Screen Test dropped to third. The winner paid a generous $14.10.   BUGSY MAGUIRE REPLAY     The win was Bugsy Maguire's 31st in 133 lifetime starts. The seven-year-old son of Bettor's Delight has earned $259,290. Wade Sorrie trains for Walter Simmons of Summerside.   Ron Gass conditioned three victors on the Saturday card: Pictonian Thunder (2:04.1) in the second, Ms Moyse in the sixth (2:05.1), and Kataparka in the eighth. Ms Moyse, and Kataparka were a part of Barrieau's own triple; he also won with Clare Hall Hanover (2:06.3) in the fifth.   Charlottetown Driving Park handled $80,953 in its summer opener. The track will return on Saturday, May 15 at 6:00 p.m. ADT.   For full race results, click here.   by Nicholas Barnsdale, for Harnesslink

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The 2021 Spring harness racing season swings into full gear Saturday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The capital oval will host a full 12-dash program starting at 6 P.M. with a brand new wagering menu, TV graphic's package, Paddock Cam and a power packed field in the feature pace. Part of the excitement has the Jackpot Hi-5 being offered at both Island tracks this season with an industry low takeout of 15% and a single winner format. The wager requires the customer to pick the first five finishers in the correct order and if there is a single winner they will receive not only the payout from the day's current pool but also the full jackpot that has built up from previous events at Charlottetown. The Jackpot Hi5 will make its debut at Summerside on May 24th. Red Shores has also reduced the minimum bet amounts for the Superfecta, Pick 4 and Jackpot Hi5 as they now will have a $0.20 minimum bet option. The race 11 feature will see the return of James (Roach) MacGregor Gold Cup and Saucer consolation winner Avatar J to Island racing as Danny MacDonald resumes the training duties of the son of American Ideal for owners Jody Sanderson of Cornwall and Ontario's Dean Larkin. Gilles Barrieau picks up the drive aboard the post 2 starter in the $3,200 preferred pace. Screen Test rides a three-race win streak into the event with Corey MacPherson at the controls for trainer Ron Gass while Chocolate Swirl (To be driven by David Dowling) has the outside post 5 after winning the final preferred pace of the season in February. Race analyst Peter MacPhee places Avatar J firmly on top of the Post Time Picks. "Avatar J was razor sharp at Rideau back in March and check out all those brisk closing quarters," MacPhee said. "Don't forget he won 10 races last year and Gilles gets along very well with him so we think they hit the wire first." Also in that preferred field are Mantario (Kenny Arsenault) and Bugsy Maguire (Austin Sorrie). Burn Out Hanover is the favourite in the race 12 finale but must overcome the outside post 7 for driver Barrieau and owner-trainer Jeff Holmes of Orwell. Other top entries are Hunger Pangs (Ryan Desroche) and Winter Blast (Dowling). The Race Day broadcast with Vance Cameron, Lee Drake and Peter MacPhee airs at 5:30pm AST with the pre-game and special guest Jennifer Doyle. Doyle is the leading trainer at Charlottetown.

Charlottetown, PE - Red Shores is looking to build on recent momentum for wagering on their live harness racing product at both Charlottetown Driving Park and Summerside Raceway in 2021. "We were quite pleased with the wagering on our live racing last year, particularly with most of the season operating with limited on track capacity", commented Lee Drake, Manager of Racing and Broadcast. "We have had some great engagement from fans especially through our digital platforms and we are really looking forward to the start of the meet." The wagering during the 2020/2021 meet posted an increase of 15 percent of 97 race dates In an effort to explore further growth opportunities in 2021, Red Shores has contracted the assistance of Bluslate Inc. Bluslate is run by Sean Pinsonneault, a highly experienced racing executive who has been working with tracks and innovators for the betterment of the sport. Sean was previously Chief Operating Officer of Woodbine, Chairman of Racetracks of Canada and has participated on several international committees and industry boards. "We think there is a real opportunity here", continued Drake. "We did some work together during the winter meet in 2020 and we feel Bluslate will provide the necessary resources and skills to make an impact on the positioning of our racing." "We are thrilled to be working with the Red Shores team", said Sean Pinsonneault, president of Bluslate Inc. "The team is eager to make a difference and open to new ideas which is a great place to start. So much of Canada's harness racing has links to the 'Kentucky of Canada' - Prince Edward Island. There is a great opportunity to leverage that heritage and build something really special." The initiative will involve working together with horsemen and other racing stakeholders throughout the process as alignment and support will be an important part of the success.

Through adherence to the Bio Security protocols outlined for everyone stabled at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park, together we have been able to address the threat of strangles onsite. At press time, only one horse is waiting for their second negative test which is expected back early next week out 0f 199 horses tested on site. Owners and guests are welcome onsite by signing in with the Security officer at the stable area entrance. Numerous horses have returned to their assigned stalls at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park, with two negative culture tests. Horses are coming in to train and jog currently, once they have received a negative culture test and have a second test scheduled. Trainers must provide the race office with their trainer equine heath verification before receiving ship-in allotted times. Horses off site are being culture tested, through the support of the Provincial Government. Horse Health Requirements for 2021: To ensure the continued good health of our racing population, two negative culture tests are required for all horses stabled off track on Prince Edward Island before you will be allowed to enter to race. There will be no time limit on your negative cultures, i.e. if your horse has received two negative culture tests in order to come train at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park, you will not need another negative test to enter in May, pending a Trainer's Equine Health Verification Form on your horses health. The protocol for off Island horse people shipping to race on Prince Edward Island for 2021 is being finalized, and will be released next week. For the 2021 racing season, trainers will have to sign a Trainer's Equine Health Verification form which will detail that they have closely monitored their horse health and confirm that all horses entering the grounds and entering to race are healthy. by Lee Drake, for Red Shores  

According to a report published on Tuesday (March 9), more than 40 horses currently stabled and isolated at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park have tested positive for the bacteria that causes equine strangles. Reports from the CBC indicate that 45 horses on the Charlottetown backstretch have been placed in isolation after testing positive for Streptococcus equi, the bacteria that causes strangles. However, none of the nearly 200 horses that were tested have shown signs or symptoms of the sometimes fatal equine disease. "It just basically means that they've come back as PCR positive, which indicates that the horse has been exposed to Strep equi, and therefore that the potential to infect other horses might be there," Brett Revington, director of racing for the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission, told the CBC. The horses in question underwent PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing, which detects the presence of bacterial DNA. As such, the test does not make a distinction between live and dead bacteria, nor if a horse received a vaccination to protect against strangles. In the interest of equine safety, the horses who tested positive for the Streptococcus equi bacteria have been physically separated from the rest of the Charlottetown horse population. "All 45 horses, they've been separated within zones, within their barns, generally positive horses at one end, and then a stall in between, and then with the negative horses on the other end," Revington said. "They're being monitored by the attending veterinarian, and the trainers and grooms that work in those barns." In addition to the isolation of the affected horses, there is another readily available means of flattening the strangles curve: a vaccine with further potential to prevent horses exposed to the Streptococcus equi from contracting strangles, or at least make the symptoms less severe exists — but care must be given that horses vaccinated against strangles have not previously contracted the disease for fear of a strong immune response that could prove detrimental. "The body's own immune system kind of overreacts, and that causes a severe disease, where you get swelling in the legs and fevers," explained Dr. J. Trenton McClure. "Those are relatively rare but when they do occur, it's because the horse already has a strong immune response." For the time being, the focus of Red Shores, the APHRC and horsepeople is to contain the outbreak and minimize its effects. Given that racing at Charlottetown is not slated to resume until May, it remains "too early to comment" about the status of the upcoming meet, per Revington. From Standardbred Canada

The Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission has learned that additional horses stabled at at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park have been exposed to strangles bacteria, as confirmed by enhanced testing. At a meeting on Tuesday (Feb. 23) that included the Atlantic Veterinary College, Charlottetown Veterinary Clinic, Prince Edward Island Harness Racing Industry Association, Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission and Red Shores, it was agreed that immediate and strict protocol will be implemented on the grounds of the Red Shores Charlottetown property. Effective 12:01 a.m. Thursday (Feb. 25), The Red Shores Charlottetown property, including all barns and the ship-in area, will implement a track-wide lockdown with no horses being allowed to ship on to the grounds until further notice. Horses may only leave the premises if they have a clearance letter from their veterinarian of a negative test taken within seven days prior to their departure. No horses will be allowed to ship in for training until further notice. Each trainer on site will be contacted to identify essential workers for their barn; only these people will be allowed on site. There must be strict limitation of any movement between barns, and mandatory bio-security protocol is being enforced. Under this protocol, foot baths, brushes and disinfectant have been supplied to each barn. These strict measures have been introduced for the best interests of the entire racing community. With proper biosecurity measures being strictly followed, the hope is to return to normal practices sooner than later. As always, horsepeople are reminded to monitor their horses' health daily by taking temperatures twice a day and logging the results. Horsepeople should consult their veterinarians if any concerns arise. Stangles case in Quebec The MAPAQ Equine Network has informed that a case of equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHV-1) nervous form was confirmed in the Outaouais region on Feb. 12. On Feb. 1, the horse started with a cough and hyperthermia, both mild. Within hours, he developed depression, partial anorexia, ataxia in all four limbs, and a stoppage of urination and defecation followed by lateral recumbency. Due to his very rapid degradation, he was euthanized on Feb. 3. Molecular analyzes of nasal secretions have identified the presence of EHV-1. The date of the last herpesvirus vaccine is not known. Six other horses in the same stable show fevers, but show no other clinical signs at this time. Prevention and control measures have been put in place by the practicing veterinarian and the owner of the stable to control the disease and prevent contamination of other horses in this stable and other stables.

On Wednesday (Feb. 17), the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission (APHRC) was informed of a new confirmed case of strangles in a Standardbred on Prince Edward Island. This case is in a different barn then the stable that has been under quarantine since early November. Testing of other horses in the newly impacted stable at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park is underway, and the stable has been quarantined. No other horses in this barn had shown any clinical signs for Streptococcus equi except for the horse that came up positive on Wednesday. The originally impacted barn has been following testing and treatment protocols established by the Atlantic Veterinary College. This has resulted in the majority of the horses in the stable being cleared. The remaining horses are undergoing testing and treatment protocols set forth by the attending veterinarians. Strangles is a highly contagious and serious infection of horses and other equines caused by the bacterium Streptococcus equi. Horsepeople are reminded to remain vigilant and institute appropriate biosecurity measures, and should consult their veterinarians for advice.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - A week of unseasonably warm weather will extend the Winter harness racing meet by one day at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The last card of the season was set for Saturday afternoon at 12:30 P.M. but will be moved to Sunday afternoon with a 2 P.M. start time in hopes of finding some firmer footing.

Post 3 belongs to Rockin Indy (Corey MacPherson) after hitting the board in his last six starts for conditioner Troy Murray. Peter MacPhee with The Post Time Picks expects some big things from Bugsy Maguire again this week. "Bugsy Maguire was put on the front last time and was a gate to wire winner closing in a snappy 28.2," MacPhee said. "He gets post five this week and if they control it again could close the winter meet with back to back wins." Woodmere Chella romped by open-lengths in last week's Fillies and Mares Open pace and will attempt more of the same in that class in race 7. MacPherson drives the Ron Gass trained daughter of Articulator for owner Valleygrove Farms of Kensington.

The 2021 Maritime Stakes schedule was released today, with several new features added. Firstly, Canada's oldest harness racing stakes program, the PEI Colt Stakes will have an additional profile, in recognition of its 87th year of competition. Each division of 2- and 3-year-old Pacing Colts and Fillies, and 2- and 3-Year-Old trotters (split by sex if necessary) will compete in two legs (PEI Colt Stakes Leg 1 and 2), with a Gold and Grassroots component based upon money earnings at time of the event. For 2021 and subsequent years there is no Final in any division, with the purse allotment usually paid out in the Finals added to the purses for each Leg. Secondly, the contribution of several legendary individuals to PEI Harness racing will be acknowledged in new ways, and in high profile events. The late Bob Dewar was an invaluable volunteer and leader at Summerside Raceway, and in recognition of his contribution to the SRW the Governors Plate Consolation for 2021 and on will be renamed the Bob Dewar Memorial. Summerside Chrysler Dodge returns as the 2021 Governors Plate Eliminations and Final sponsor. The Chappell family have been part of the success of Summerside Raceway since the early 1950's, and in recognition the Mares Series during Governors Plate week will be renamed the Chappell Memorial. "We felt it important to have the two highest profile events held each year at Summerside for our Aged horses recognize the Dewar and Chappell names, and in events which will always be associated with Summerside Raceway, " stated Blaine MacPherson, PEI Harness Racing Industry Association Chair. "We will also be acknowledging the contributions of inaugural PEI Colt Stakes President George Callbeck and Tyndall Semple with a special announcement that will be forthcoming shortly." Horse Racing New Brunswick have added a new Stake event for 2- and 3-year-old Pacers called the New Brunswick Breeders Stake and will also be holding a leg of the Standardbred Canada Mares Series, and a new Invitational level event in an Elimination and Final format for 2021. The Maritime Breeders will also see some changes to its stake in 2021. The Stake will move to all division formats for each age group. The trotters will be split by sex if the numbers permit. This year will see the stake have three different events held at three different tracks. The two-year-old pacing fillies and colts will contest their divisions on October 17th at Truro Raceway, the three-year-old pacing fillies and colts will compete on June 18th at Summerside Raceway, and the two- and three-year-old trotters will compete on September 9th at the CDP.
