CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Capitalizing on an early break in stride by the heavy favourite, Dustlanemissmolly used the rail to her advantage and was on top at every call by an open length score in the Saturday afternoon feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Dustlanemissmolly was sent to the lead in the $2,350 Fillies and Mares Open pace by trainer-driver Myles Heffernan and was unchallenged off the front to the first quarter in 30.1, due partly to the 2-5 favoured Prettyndangerous (Driven by David Dowling) making a break in the first turn and never coming back into contention. Julep Hanover (Wade Myers) launched a first-over assault on Dustlanemissmolly headed to the half in 1:00.4 through wet and windy conditions with a two-second track variant, then the duo tripped the three-quarters in 1:31.2. Dustlanmissmolly then opened up on her foes to prevail by two-and-a-half lengths in 2:00.2. Collective Wisdom (Drew Neill) came up the inside to finish second while Julep Hanover held on for third. Dustlanemissmolly's visit to the winner's circle was number 21 of her career and number four since coming into the ownership of Jackie Heffernan of Summerville, P.E.I. Mach Of Ballykeel scored an upset in the $1,500 Cabo Pan Lucas Retirement pace as part of a driving triple by Corey MacPherson. The Kyle Wilkie co-owned and trained pacer stopped the timer in 2:00.3 for co-owner Mallory Lewis of Sherwood, P.E.I. MacPherson's other wins came with Southfield Sassy in 2:03.1 for Southfield Farms of Summerside and in a maiden breaking score of 2:05.4 with Lilbootsinparadise for Glenn Claybourne of Charlottetown, P.E.I. Suicide Shift ,won the $1,950 Open trot as the longest shot on the board in a field scratched down to four entries. Steven Shepherd was in the driver's seat in the 2:04.2 victory for owners Margo Fisher of Fredericton, N.B., and Harold Shepherd of Stratford, P.E.I. For more information go to www.Redshores.ca.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - After vanquishing all comers in the Fillies and Mares Open in recent weeks, Prettyndangerous has an ideal starting post for her Saturday afternoon contest at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 13-dash Saturday afternoon card kicks off at 12:30 P.M. with the featured pacing mares heading to the gate in race 12 for a $2,350 pot. Prettyndangerous leaves from post 2 as the morning line favourite fresh off a pair of wins in her latest starts at this level. David Dowling is back in the driver's seat behind the Bo Ford trained and co-owned daughter of Armbro Deuce, who is also co-owned by Arnold Myers of Charlottetown, P.E.I. Collective Wisdom was a third place finisher in her last start and retains the services of rookie driver Drew Neill from post 3, while West River Ambyr has drawn post 4 with Steven Shepherd back aboard the Harold Shepherd trainee. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will side with the morning line in selecting Prettyndangerous to hit the wire first again this week. "Prettyndangerous was a bit inconsistent earlier in the year but not so now as five straight top three finishes will attest to," MacIsaac said. "She's beaten this class in back to back starts and there's been nothing to indicate the streak won't reach three." Other entries include Dustlanemissmolly (Driven by Myles Heffernan), Nikes Cowgirl (Marc Campbell), Drivingthedragon N (Jason Hughes), Julep Hanover (Wade Myers) and Killean Finale (Ken Murphy). The Cabo Pan Lucas retirement pace hits the track in race 11 for a $1,500 purse. Cabo Pan Lucas has been a hard hitting race horse at the Charlottetown Driving Park since coming to Prince Edward Island in the Spring of 2011 for owners Gary Poulton and Alan Walker of Charlottetown. His retirement race will see Harbourlite Jerry as the morning line choice from post 2 with Shepherd in the bike for trainer Harold Shepherd and owner Ralph Jardine of Arthur, Ont. Other top entries include All Turain (Dowling) and Painted Pony (Campbell). Undefeated Pacer Takes On Invitational Star CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - After a perfect season in the 2018 stakes season, Sock It Away has graduated to aged company and will have his biggest test to date on Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 13-dash Sunday program has a special 2 P.M. post time out of respect for Remembrance Day services. Sock It Away will try to extend his streak to 17 straight in the race 12 Preferred pace carrying a $2,650 purse. Red Shores Charlottetown's leading driver, Marc Campbell, will be at the lines of the post 3 starter for trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford, P.E.I. The son of Pang Shui was a winner in 1:55.1 in a hard fought stretch duel in his latest start in the $11,000 Island Breeders final. Governor's Plate champion Czar Seelster has post 6 in the short field with Mike McGuigan back at the helm while Rockin Indy rides a two-race win streak into the event with rail control for driver David Dowling. Race analyst Les MacIsaac admits Sock It Away's perfection is appealing but thinks the jump to face some of the best pacers around will be too much. MacIsaac places Czar Seelster as the one to beat Sunday afternoon. "Czar Seelster made up a ton of ground last week after the tardy start, had to come first up at the half and still kicked home in 28 and change for the win," MacIsaac said. "Off a performance like that how do you go against him? You don't." Also in the field is Three Truths (Driven by Kenny Arsenault), Rollwithitharry (Ron Matheson) and Winter Blast (Jason Hughes). Race 11 is the Remembrance Day pace with Dusty Lane Zendaya the favourite from post 1 with Adam Merner at the lines for trainer Stephen Gass off of two straight victories. The race carries a $1,600 purse. The John J Thompson Memorial pace lines up in race 9 in honour of the horseman and World War 2 veteran who passed away one year ago this month. Woodmere Ideal Art enters the race fresh from a near-miss against Sock It Away, as he was a nose short of beating the undefeated pacer in the Island Breeders final. Hughes will driver Woodmere Ideal Art again in this week's $2,350 event for trainer Sifroi Melanson and owner Ultimate Stable of Greater Lakeburn, N.B.

The capital oval switches to 12:30 P.M. Saturday post times for the remainder of the season with 13-dashes scheduled this week.

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."

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.
