Tony Too Tall Debuts In Summerside

By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

SUMMERSIDE, PE – Tony Too Tall makes his first Atlantic Canadian appearance in the Tuesday evening feature at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The eight-year-old son of Big Bad John has post 4 in the $3,500 featured pace, carded as race 12 on the 13-dash card. First race post time is 6 P.M.

Myles Heffernan Sr., has the catch driving call on Tony Too Tall for trainer Trevor Hicken and owner Perry Burke of Quebec. The winner of 32 races and $437,000 was racing the claiming ranks in Pennsylvania and New York for trainer Per Engblom before being purchased by Burke. The pacer has already won in 1:51.1 at Harrah’s Philadelphia this season.

Middleton Terror is the morning line favourite from post 5 for trainer-driver David Dowling with his latest outing a victory in 1:57 for his 22nd lifetime win from 61 career starts.

Howmac Maximus (To be driven by Damian MacLellan) has rail control from the Tammy Collings with 10 top-three finishes from 12 starts this season.

Post 2 has Melody Maker (Corey MacPherson), who knocked off this class on June 18 in 1:55.2 for owner-trainer Greg MacInnis.

Mantario leaves from post 3 with Paul Langille getting the catch driving call for trainer Jennifer Doyle.

The Backstretch Beat selects Middleton Terror on top.

“Middleton Terror has put together a nice season and already has four wins to show for it. He’s also back in post five and loves to race at this track so expect him to have a large say in the outcome.”

The back-up class hits the track for $2,850 in race 11 with Coasttocoastshark (Jaycob Sweet) headlining the crew from post 5. The ultra-consistent veteran will face six rivals including Ideal Jet (MacLellan) and Rusty Riley (Langille).
