CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The top driver in the history of Prince Edward Island harness racing will be honoured Saturday afternoon with Marc Campbell Day at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.   The 'King' of Island racing, Campbell of Winsloe, will be the focus of the Saturday card as he is honoured as the top driver every year of the past decade.   The Saturday program kicks off at 12:30 P.M. with 14-dashes scheduled. Red Shores will have a banner up to recognize Campbell that the fans cane sign, a trackside presentation with a plaque from Red Shores as well as special video clips and races from the driver's career.   Race 13 is the Marc Campbell - Driver Of The Decade pace with a mainstay of the Campbell stable favoured in the $2,600 event. Eagle Jolt has post 2 for trainer-driver Campbell and owners Wilbur and Marie MacDonald of Stratford. The 13-year-old son of Village Jolt will look to add to his 64 lifetime victories from over 330 lifetime outings.   Burn Out Hanover looms a large danger from post 3 with Corey MacPherson in the driver's seat for trainer Jeff Holmes. A son of Well Said out of millionaire pacing mare Burning Point, Burn Out Hanover tired off the front in his latest over a heavy track rated five seconds off due to mud.   Race analyst Les MacIsaac will side with Burn Out Hanover to provide the upset in the Marc Campbell - Drive Of The Decade pace.   "As we said earlier, the front wasn't the place to be last week so we'll cut him some slack for not delivering as the chalk," MacIsaac said of Burn Out Hanover. "There's a ton of thirds there against some big time opposition so he could be sitting on a win."   Other entrants in the field are IC True Grit (Driven by Mike McGuigan), Bank Of Dad (Adam Merner), Santana Sass (Kenny Arsenault), Silverhill Buddy (David Dowling), Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan Sr.) and Jeb (Jason Hughes).   The preferred pace lines up in race 7 with Creepin the morning line choice after winning this class last week. Dowling is in the bike for trainer and co-owner Jim Quinn and co-owners Alex Quinn and Carl Peterson. Other top entries are the Jen Doyle trained duo of Winter Blast (Hughes) and Midnight Matt (Arsenault).   By Nicholas Oakes, for Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - On a muddy day with unseasonably high January temperatures, Silverhill Buddy was the only front end harness racing winner Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The David Myers trained pacer lead at every call in the New Year's Pace at the capital oval as David Dowling gave him a 2:04.2 steer over a track with a five-second variant. The six-year-old son of Proven Lover is owned by Myers along with Joanne MacRae of Charlottetown and Gwyneth McGuirk of Fort Augustus.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The 2019 racing season comes to a close Tuesday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park and the top driver of the decade says he can't wait to get started on another driving title. The 13-dash New Year's Eve program is scheduled for a 6:30 P.M. first race post time. Environment Canada has indicated the possibility of impending weather with officials at Red Shores making an announcement at 10 A.M. Tuesday morning on the status of the program. Winsloe driver Marc Campbell is poised to win his 10th straight dash title as he leads all drivers at the Capital oval with 136 trips to the winner's circle, ahead of second place Gilles Barrieau at 107 wins. The 35-year-old Vernon River native finds it hard to believe he was never heeded as top driver, with only Jason Hughes tying him in the 2014 and 2015 seasons. "It seemed to go by quick," the driver said. "Probably because of all of the ups and downs that come along with horse racing. I couldn't tell you the amount of weddings I was supposed to be in that I got there late or had to leave early because of horse racing." "Thankfully my friend and family still like me," Campbell jokes. Along with two O'Brien Award for Horsemanship and a pair of Gold Cup and Saucer victories, Campbell has made 2,319 trips to the winner's circle in his career, with over $5.2 million in purse earnings. "I feel like I'm just getting started. I'm driving way better now than I ever have, way differently than I ever have." The Tuesday program will also see the retirement of Dreamfair Van Dam, a longtime mainstay in the Campbell stable that recently returned back to P.E.I. from a lease arrangement in Nova Scotia. The 14-year-old pacer faces mandatory retirement before he turns 15, but will go out a winner in his final two races. "I go down in the basement in my house and the kids are watching Youtube of Gold Cup and Saucers or lord knows what," The father of four said. "Poor Dreamfair Van Dam is tired out, the kids have raced him 20 times a day the past week in the basement. The Youtube is getting worn out. But that is what it is all about, it's not all about money." One thing Campbell cannot praise enough is the racing product that Red Shores puts on at Charlottetown and Summerside. "The product here is second to none. I get to go to work at a nice place, nice track, nice facility. People think the racing isn't tough here but it's tough. Go buy a horse for $15,000 and you bring it down here and you could get throttled. There are a lot of great horse people here and it is tough."

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - On the cusp of history, the 'King' of Island harness racing dominated the final portion of the Sunday afternoon program at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Driver Marc Campbell won the final three dashes of the 10-race card including the race 9 featured pace aboard his own Rose Run Quest in 1:56.4.

The three-win day by Campbell propelled the driver to an 18-race lead in the driver's standings with 122 visits to the Red Shores Charlottetown winner's circle. Gilles Barrieau sits in second place with 107 wins. If Campbell can hold onto the lead for the final four cards of the calendar year, he will again make history with driving titles every year of the decade.

Jason Hughes tied Campbell for leading driver in 2014 and 2015, with Campbell winning outright every other year. For Sunday afternoon race replays and more go to Redshores.ca.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - With a Maritime Champion harness racing season in her rear view mirror, Arc Light has risen to fight off the top mares on the East Coast every week and that will continue during a special Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 13-dash Saturday afternoon card has a 12:30 P.M. first race post time on Customer Appreciation Day, sponsored by the P.E.I. Harness Racing Industry Association. There will be thousands of dollars of prizes to be won including Cavendish Beach Music Festival tickets, an Ipad, an Iphone, a 65" Samsung Smart Tv, $1000 gifts cards for Sobeys and Feasible Fuels, and more. To qualify, customers mist simply wager throughout the racecard and winners will be selected at random through the wagering terminals. The top pacing mares square off in race 12 of the day for a $2,550 purse. Maritime Breeder's championship winner Arc Light has graduated to the Open Mares level since finishing her stakes campaign and has taken the task in stride, winning her last two outings for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S. Her latest win against Open company put her over $50,000 in seasonal earnings and the daughter of Camystic will strive for more of the same from post 5 on Saturday afternoon. Tell Me Why has been razor sharp as of late with six straight top-three finishes and will have post 1 on Saturday for driver Corey MacPherson and trainer Joe MacDonald of Breadalbane. Collective Wisdom garnered a cheque against the boys last week and returns to female company this week from post 4 with recent O'Brien Award of Horsemanship nominee Gilles Barrieau at the lines. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees the road to the winner's circle going through Arc Light. "It is hard to believe a three year old filly can be so dominant against aged mares but this one is," MacIsaac said of Arc Light. "She hit another gear up the back stretch in her last two and never looked back so you got to think a three peat is a distinct possibility." Rounding out the field is Mrs Dragonfire (Driven by David Dowling) and Drivingthedragon N (Jason Hughes). The trot war continues in race 7 for a $2,350 purse as Star Photo is the top choice in a compact field of five open trotters for driver Jason Hughes, trainer Kevin Gillis and owners Robi Hughes, Eric MacLauchlan and James Perrot of Stratford and Blair MacLauchlan of Charlottetown. Freddie went down to defeat in his latest and has post 4 this week for trainer-driver Marc Campbell. Can A New 'Quest' Begin At Red Shores? CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Rose Run Quest has been a dominate force in Atlantic Canadian harness racing all season long and he will look to reignite that magic in the Sunday afternoon feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 10-dash program will be the final regularly scheduled Sunday card of the season as racing switches to a Saturday only schedule starting next week. The first race of the day goes postward at 12 P.M. with the $2,950 featured preferred pace lining up in race 9 of the program. Trainer Marc Campbell will be in the bike behind Rose Run Quest from post 5 in the class as the morning line favourite in the compact field. The pacer bought himself a ticket to the $200,000 club in his latest but failed to make the winner's circle as he finished second to Woodmere Ideal Art while garnering enough earnings to meet the milestone. Blair Hansen of Charlottetown owns the seven-year-old son of If I Can Dream. The only horses to get their noses in front of Rose Run Quest in his last six starts were Woodmere Ideal Art, who is absent this week, and Euchred who is racing in Ontario. Post 2 belongs to Burn Out Hanover with Gilles Barrieau driving for trainer Jeff Holmes, while Varadero Hanover will guard the rail from the Jeff Wallace stable for driver Ken Murphy. Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees the absence of the two horses that beat Rose Run Quest in his last two starts to be a sign of clear sailing this week. "Rose Run Quest has had back to back weeks without a win, which is an eternity for this guy," MacIsaac said. "Since the ones that managed to get the better of him in those starts are absent today there could be nothing to stand in his way." Other entries are Creepin (Driven by David Dowling) and Midnight Matt (Jason Hughes). The afternoon back-up pace lines up in race 8 with Mick Dundee pegged as the one to beat in the $2,600 class from post 3 fresh off of a trio of cheques earned at the preferred level. Don MacNeill of Cornwall owns, trains and drives his homebred pacer who will look to add to his five seasonal victories. Winter Blast (Hughes) and Eagle Jolt (Campbell) are listed as top contenders. The Eddie Power Memorial will line up in race 7 of the program with Three Truths favoured off the class drop from post 6 for driver Kenny Arsenault, trainer Paul Doyle and owners Jason Rice of Kensington and Darren Doyle of York.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Arc Light unleashed a devastating finishing burst to get up for the harness racing win in the Saturday afternoon featured finale at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The $2,700 top event saw Drivingthedragon N (Driven by Jason Hughes) leaving smartly off the wings to gain the lead and lay down splits of 30, 1:01.1 and 1:30.3 over a track rated three seconds off due to wind and wet conditions. Dancers Pass (David Dowling) duelled with that leader first over while eventual winner Arc Light and trainer-driver Marc Campbell were third over up until the final quarter. Arc Light was then launched three-wide approaching the three-quarters and circled up on her competition to nail Drivingthedragon N at the wire in 2:01.1 while Dancers Pass completed the triactor ticket. Grayland Farm of Gulf Shore, N.S., holds the ownership papers of the three-year-old Maritime Champion daughter of Camystic, who was winning her second straight race at this level.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Drafting a perfect two-hole trip while watching the front end resident besieged for the duration of the race, Lisburn captured the $4,000 P.E.I. Harness Racing Industry Association Invitational Saturday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Kenny Arsenault sent Lisburn hard off the gate from post 1 and struck the lead before releasing Rose Run Quest (Marc Campbell) to the front in the first quarter of 27.3. Rose Run Quest was kept occupied on the front end for the rest of the mile as Euchred (Driven by Mike McGuigan) was parked out and moved up to engage Rose Run Quest through the half of 55.2 and faded before the three-quarters of 1:24.4. Lisburn left the two-hole and took his shot down the lane, getting up for a nose decision in 1:53 over Rose Run Quest with Bugsy Maguire (Jason Hughes) finishing third.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - It was just another night at the office for the "King" of Island racing as harness racing driver Marc Campbell captured both top events Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The Campbell trained and driven Freddie found the wire first in the $2,350 Open Trot as he benefited from some brisk early fractions supplied by Hop Up (Driven by Corey MacPherson). Hop Up struck the front and laid down splits of 28.4 and 58.2 before relinquishing the front to Star Photo (Jason Hughes) at the half-mile marker. Freddie then took a first-over assault from fourth on that leader and powered by in the stretch to win by two-and-a-half lengths in 1:58.3 with Star Photo second and Hop Up third. Freddie is owned by Three Wisemen Stable of Kingston. The top pace of the evening was more of the same for the Winsloe driver as he teamed up with Bettim Vicky to win the $2,300 class in 1:57.4. Jeff Lilley of Milton Station co-owns and trains the daughter of Aahm Canadian Now for co-owners Blair MacLauchlan of Charlottetown, Danny Purcell of Newport, N.S., and Greg Goldberg of Victoria, B.C. Innocent Kiss (Adam Merner) got the deuce with Collective Wisdom (Gilles Barrieau) completing the $459.00 triactor. Campbell's other win came with Paythelinebluechip in 1:59.1 for trainer Jay Noye. For complete results go to redshores.ca by Nicholas Oakes, for Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Freddie has the lead in the harness racing win department but recent weeks have shown the Open Trot is anyone's race to win at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. A 12-dash Thursday evening presentation at the capital oval will kick off at 6:30 P.M. while the $2,350 Open Trot hits the track in race 8. Freddie has compiled eight wins on the season to dwarf his competition but recent racing action has seen its share of different winners in this class. Post 7 will not make the road easy for Freddie, with trainer-driver Marc Campbell at the lines for owner Three Wisemen Stable of Kingston. Hop Up (Driven by Corey MacPherson) has a one-two record her last two starts from post 4 while Star Photo (Jason Hughes) has been in the triactor his last five races. Majian Tango (Jim Ripley) has been rock solid all season and will look to rebound off a fourth place finish his last start to those three foes. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will cast aside the post-position disadvantage and go with Freddie for the top spot. "Freddie hit the front by the quarter last week and never looked back in scoring his 55th career win," MacIsaac said. "We can't imagine it being that easy tonight but regardless, it's hard to rule out a repeat." Also in the field is Frill Seeker (Kenny Arsenault), Suicide Shift (Steven Shepherd) and Daisy River (Walter Cheverie). The top pace of the evening lines up in the finale as a quartet of talented pacing mares drops out of the Fillies and Mares Open class. Rocknrols Image will leave from post 2 Thursday evening in race 12 as she looks for the lion's share of the $2,300 purse. Hughes is in the bike behind the Kevin Gillis trained pacer for owner David MacDonald of Belfast. A third place finisher pacing in 1:56.1 her last start, Rocknrols Image has earned the respect of morning line favourite. Also making the drop from the top mare's class is Innocent Kiss (Adam Merner), Collective Wisdom (Gilles Barrieau) and Bettim Vicky (Marc Campbell).
