CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Balanchine will search for his second win in a row in the race 11 preferred pace Saturday night at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at The Charlottetown Driving Park. First race post time for the 12-dash card is 6 pm. Balanchine, named after famous dance choreographer George Balanchine, has drawn post 5 in the $2,200 event after winning his last start in 1:56.4. Ron Matheson was in the bike for that start but trainer Jack Matheson has listed Brodie MacPhee to drive the pacer. Balanchine is owned by Mike Pollard of Stratford and Joey Gallant of Charlottetown. A tough challenge looks to come from the outside, with Lucky Encounter (Walter Cheverie) from post 7 for trainer Dale Sobey and owner Foxyhall Racing Stable of Wallace, N.S.

Other entries are Inspired Art (Corey MacPherson), IDK (Vincent Poulton), Come Back (Lenny Myers), and Carnivore (Gary Chappell). Race analyst Les MacIsaac selects Balanchine to win the event. “He was sharp in his first start of the season then seemed to tail off for a while,” MacIsaac says. “With a pair of wins and an equal number of seconds in his last five starts it's safe to say the slump is over. Top call.” The co-feature is the race 9 fillies and mares open for a purse of $2,200. Trainer Hughes has drawn the inside posts with Lucky Boot Cam (MacPhee) leaving from the rail and Bunny Mach (Bradley) with post 2.
