Jessiejesorjessica, Irish Ray Favorites in Open Trot

By Lee Drake

Charlottetown, PE – A competitive field of trotters co-headlines the Thursday night program at Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Post time is 6pm.

Trainer Jennifer Doyle sends out three entries in the race 9 showdown including last week’s winner Jessiejesorjessica who scored a one length victory over Irish Ray in 1:58.1 for David Dowling. With Dowling competing in the National Driving Championship Friday in Quebec, Adam Merner gets his first-time drive on the mare, a winner of 46 races lifetime and owned by Danny Birt, Vernon Bridge, PE. Birt and Doyle also have New Legacy (Damien MacLellan) and Glider Man (Myles Heffernan) in the race scheduled to go to post at 8:24PM.

Irish Ray is the 5-2 choice on the morning line from post 3 with Marc Campbell handling the driving duties for his son Landon who trains the former stakes super-star for Fred MacDonald, Cornwall, PE. The son of Muscle Through It is searching for his first win in his four-year-old campaign. Peter MacPhee, author of Post Time Picks, thinks he gets it done on Thursday.

“He was put on the engine and raced great just missing by the slimmest of margins,” writes MacPhee. “We’re thinking Marc will be flooring it from here and if he does clear to the lead, it could be the night he flips the script.” Majian Tango, Windemeredontuworry, and Labero round out the field.

The evening’s headliner comes up in race 10 with Share The Moment listed as the top contender. With Gilles Barrieau committed to rail sitter Outrageous Style from the Ron Matheson stable, trainer Bo Ford has secured Marc Campbell to drive for the ownership team of Luke Beck, Scott Bridges and Arnold Myers. The mare is 2-1-3 in top threes from 10 starts. Rock The Baby looms the danger from post 3 for driver Ken Murphy, Windemere Farms and trainer Earl Watts. Ms Moyse (Merner) also has a chance be on the top of the sequence in the last daily double for trainer Melissa Rennie. The seven-year-old mare by Rollwithitharry makes her 7th start of the season for owners Olivia May, Quaid Hately, Andrew Cameron, Charlottetown, PE.
