David Dowling supplied the winning steer, stopping the clock in 1:59.2 for owners William Andrew of Calgary, Alta., and Brian Andrew of Milton Station, P.E.I. The Thursday evening program saw the first snowfall of the season with blustery conditions putting the track at a two-second variant for the card. The $2,200 feature pace saw Weekend Atnannies (Driven by Mike McGuigan) set the tempo with opening splits of 27.3 and 57.4 before succumbing to the first over advance of Cartoon Daddy at the three-quarters of 1:28.4.

Race analyst Les MacIsaac puts his faith in post 1 starter KD Overdrive to hit the wire first in his Canadian return. "KD Overdrive gets slightly easier opposition than he had in his last start here, rail control and is reunited with Gilles," MacIsaac said. "That combination makes him a potential sleeper." Also in the full field of eight is Harbourlite Jerry (Driven by Steven Shepherd), Perfect Escape (Ron Matheson), Jeb (Jason Hughes), Likely To Win (Adam Merner) and Cartoon Daddy (David Dowling). The $1,950 Open trot lines up in race 6 of the evening with Majian Tango favoured from the outside in the compact field of five.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The top aged pacers on Canada's Eastern Seaboard will again lock bridles in the Saturday afternoon feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The capital oval switches to 12:30 P.M. Saturday post times for the remainder of the season with 13-dashes scheduled this week. The $2,650 preferred pace lines up in race 12 with Rose Run Quest leaving from the outside in the field of six fresh off his 1:54.3 victory in the Atlantic Breeder's Crown Invitational in his latest start. Marc Campbell is back in the bike for owner Blair Hansen of Charlottetown. Czar Seelster leaves from post 4 this week with Mike McGuigan picking up the catch drive for trainer Todd Weatherbee. Euchred has been solid all season and has Adam Merner returning to the driver's seat from post 5. Race analyst Les MacIsaac admits the race is a toss-up between those three talented pacers but selects Czar Seelster for the top spot Saturday afternoon. "This is a powerful threesome that's been dominating this class since OHW and it's just a matter of who's turn is it this week," MacIsaac said. "We'll go with Czar Seelster since drawing inside his two main rivals could be the difference maker." Also in the field is Three Truths (Driven by Kenny Arsenault), Keep Coming (David Dowling) and Machinthesand (Ken Murphy). The Saturday card also features a pair of $3,000 Maritime Breeder's Eliminations for two-year-old trotters. The first elimination hits the track in race 2 with Windemerebarrister the top pick from post 4 fresh off a second place finish in the Atlantic Breeder's Crown finale. Walter Cheverie is in the bike for trainer Al McNeil and Nova Scotia owners Gregory Francis, Jennifer Baxter and Saulsbrook Stables. Maritime champion Mile Hill Willie is favoured in the second split in race 4 leaving from post 3 for trainer-driver Gilles Barrieau and owner Paul Morrison of Cardigan, P.E.I. The top four from each elimination will advance to next week's final. The Maritime Breeder's three-year-old trot eliminations were scheduled to be contested on the program but just seven horses entered the event. Those seven will advance directly to next week's sophomore trot final. Fast N Victorious Defending Top Spot SUMMERSIDE, PE - After wiring the top class last week Fast N Victorious will look to fend off any challengers in the Sunday afternoon feature at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway. The 12-dash program kicks off at 1 P.M. Sunday afternoon with the top class heading behind the gate in race 11. Fast N Victorious leaves from post 2 in the $2,200 event with Corey MacPherson picking up the catch drive for trainer Stephen Gass and owners Kent and Owen Livingston of Cornwall, P.E.I. The five-year-old son of Art Major was on top at every call in his latest start with a 1:57.1 victory by over two lengths. Mando Fun was in that same race and was a non-factor after leaving from the outside but he gets rail control on Sunday with Ken Murphy in the bike as the second choice on the morning line odds. Race analyst Bo Ford elects to go a different direction and will side with post 3 starter Pictonian Storm after selecting him to win last week in the race won by Fast N Victorious. "We went with Pictonian Storm last week and the trip didn't materialize the way we had hoped," Ford said. "We're going to back him up again today and look for a little value." Also in the field is White Fish Flash (Driven by Norris Rogers) and Woodmere Ideal Art (Stephen Trites). The Cecil Stewart Memorial pace lines up in race 7 for a $1,000 purse with Shes A Lover and owner-trainer-driver Rob Chappell of Summerside, P.E.I., selected to win from post 1. Race 9 is the Leon Stewart Memorial pace for a $1,800 pot. Soccer Hanover gets top billing from post 5 with Murphy in the bike for trainer Leith Waite.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - There was nothing standing in the way of Woodmere Finesse over a sloppy track in the Thursday night feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Gilles Barrieau was in the bike for the winning trip in the $1,700 featured pace as she took control at the half-mile marker and widened her advantage at every station en route to a 1:57.1 romp by 10-lengths. One Hot Camshaft (Driven by Ken Murphy) was second followed by Drivingthedragon N (Jason Hughes). Jeff Lilley trains Woodmere Finesse for owner Edward Maher of Lower Sackville, N.S. Sports Highlights scored her third win in-a-row with a 2:04.3 victory on the off-track for driver Barrieau and trainer Todd Walsh of Charlottetown.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - An evenly rated trip led to the winner's circle in Drivingthedragon N's latest outing and she will look for a replication in the Thursday evening feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash program starts off at 6:30 P.M. with the top class of the evening featuring seven female pacers vying for a $1,700 purse. Drivingthedragon N has the outside post to contend with for trainer-driver Jason Hughes and owner Donald MacRae of Vernon Bridge, P.E.I. The nine-year-old daughter of Sutter Hanover was a 1:57.3 victor last week against similar company but will again have to contend with speedy four-year-old Woodmere Finesse (Driven by Gilles Barrieau) from post 5. Race analyst Les MacIsaac is taking another direction and will look to post 6 starter Julep Hanover and trainer-driver Wade Myers to prevail. "Julep Hanover can kick home with the best of them so she'll need some early pace to make that late rally work," MacIsaac said. "With the way the field is set up there's a good possibility of that so we'll give her top billing." Also in the Thursday night feature field is Diduseethat (Marc Campbell), One Hot Camshaft (Ken Murphy), Swingirl (Corey MacPherson) and Cougar Gal (Mike McGuigan). The top trot of the evening lines up in race 6 for a $1,800 purse. Majian Tango is the morning line choice from post 3 for trainer-driver Jim Ripley and owner Marylea Ripley of Amherst, N.S.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Euchred will have some foes trying to settle the score Saturday evening as the top aged harness racing pacers in Atlantic Canada face off at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The action kicks off at 6 P.M., with 12-dashes scheduled at the capital oval. The $3,500 Invitational Pace is carded as race 12 of the program with a compact field of five and Euchred being saddled with the outside. Jason Hughes picks up the steer on Euchred for trainer Terry Gallant and owner Kayla Habicht Walker of Inverness, N.S. The six-year-old son of Shadow Play rides a two-race win streak into the event. Those victories came defeating the same top pacers in 1:53.2 for driver Gilles Barrieau and 1:54 for driver David Dowling. Czar Seelster has post 3 with Kenny Arsenault back in the bike for trainer Todd Weatherbee and fellow top end pacer Rose Run Quest gets Gary Chappell in the bike in the absence of trainer Marc Campbell. Keep Coming (Driven by Corey MacPherson) also won his last two races including a 1:55.1 win in the $4,000 Johnny Conroy Memorial at Truro Raceway in Nova Scotia. Completing the field is Machinthesand (Ken Murphy) with rail control. Race analyst Les MacIsaac thinks Euchred's burst off the gate will be enough to overcome his outside starting post. "Euchred is right back to where he was earlier in the season, dominating every race from start to finish," MacIsaac said. "He'll look to exploit that gate speed and set up shop on the front end again and once there he can be very tough to catch." Also on the program, a field of six will contest the $2,350 Fillies and Mares Open pace in race 7. Ramblinglily draws post 6 in the race as the morning line favorite and trainer Alan Jones in the race bike. Other top entries include Collective Wisdom (Ron Matheson) and Prettyndangerous (Hughes).

Mando Fun will retain the services of driver David Dowling on Sunday as he leaves from post 5 as the morning line favourite for co-owner and trainer Paul Biggar of Tyne Valley, and co-owner Donald Callbeck of Kensington, P.E.I. The five-year-old son of Badlands Hanover has put together a solid season with six wins from 18 tries and has shown some of his best work from the front end. His inside foes may have something to say about him making the front easily Sunday afternoon. Weekend Atnannies drops out of stakes competition to leave from post 2 in the event for the father-son team of trainer Leonard McGuigan and driver Mike McGuigan. The Western Paradise sophomore has banked over $22,000 this season and was a 1:56.1 winner in his last non-stakes race.
