Blood Money Upsets In Charlottetown

By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Blood Money completed a Marc Campbell driving triple as the stallion turned back stablemate and heavy favourite Twin B Tuffenuff in the Saturday evening Preferred at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The $3,600 feature had Spectrum Seelster (Driven by David Dowling) pounce to the lead in 28.3 followed by a half of 57.4. The Ron Matheson trained duo of Blood Money (Campbell) and Twin B Tuffenuff (Gilles Barrieau) followed patiently in third and fourth, respectively, in the early going before Campbell pulled the right line heading to the three-quarters of 1:26.4. The first-over Blood Money took control in the stretch at 4-1 odds and fought off the heavily favoured second-over Twin B Tuffenuff to win in 1:55.1 for owner Dr. Mitchell Downey of Saint John, N.B. Spectrum Seelster held on for third.

Campbell also won earlier on the card with the Brent Campbell trained Pendleton Rodeo (1:55.1) in race 4 and with JK Express (1:56.2) for trainer Jared Perrot in race 7.

Trainer Matheson had a pair of victories as Selkirk Echo (Barrieau) also won in race 9 in 1:55.3.

The duo of driver Adam Merner and trainer Melissa Rennie doubled up winning race 10 with Merigo Magic (1:57.2) and Race 11 with Mr Kelly (1:57.1).

Trainer Jennifer Doyle celebrated a pair of wins with the Dowling driven pair of Usurper (1:59.2) and First Glance (1:56).

Three-year-old colt Freemans Legacy (Jaycob Sweet) was impressive early on the program winning in 1:57.2 with a 27 flat final quarter. Owner MacKenzie Arsenault of Alberton purchased the Pang Shui – Camco Terra colt for a thrifty $3,500 at the 2022 Atlantic Classic Yearling Sale.

Live racing continues Thurday (May 16) at 6 P.M. at Red Shores Charlottetown.
