Campbell Dominates Saturday Program with Six Winners

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – The winner’s circle camera saw no shortage of Marc Campbell on the Saturday afternoon program at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The 13-dash card had the ‘King’ of Island of racing record six victories as he continues his 2017 dominance. Campbell captured the top event of the day in the $2,400 preferred pace as Rose Run Quest was a 1:57.3 winner from his own stable for owner Blair Hansen of Charlottetown. Salmonier Storm (driven by Ambyr Campbell) finished nine-and-a-half lengths back in second with Forever Paradise (Ken Murphy) completing the triactor.

Four of Campbell’s wins came from his own stable including Fern Hill Breeze in 1:59.2, Charlottes Western in 2:00.4, and Woodmere Articblue in a 10-length romp 1:58.1. Campbell and trainer Jeff Lilley teamed up to win with Bettim Vicky in 2:02.3, while Iswhatitis remains undefeated in the Neal Moase stable after a 1:59.3 Campbell-driven score.

Euchred was a winner in the $2,000 back-up pace with a 1:58.3 off-the-pace win for trainer-driver Terry Gallant at 10-1 odds. The six-year-old son of Shadow Play is owned by Kayla Habicht Walker of Inverness, N.S.

Jason Hughes had a driving double on the program. Live racing continues on Saturday afternoon.
