Marc Campbell was the hot commodity of the day with five driving winners on Saturday (Oct. 31) at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park, including the $23,000 Maritime Breeders three-year-old pacing filly final in track record time.

The ‘King’ of Island racing guided Streakazana to victory in the championship final, a race in memory of Ken Starratt, with a two-hole ride behind Woodmere Skyroller (Dowling) in some brisk fractions of 26.4, 54.3 and 1:24.2. The stretch drive saw Streakazana reach up for her MCR Streakazana ownership group and trainer Campbell in 1:54.1. Woodmere Skyroller settled for second while Red Dirt Star (Gilles Barrieau) completed the triactor.

The win put Streakazana’s seasonal earnings over the $49,000 mark and gave her a share of the track record with Saulsbrook Ocean.

Slamming out front-end fractions, Mr Kelly landed his nose on the wire first in the Doug Harkness Memorial Maritime Breeders three-year-old pacing colt final

Adam Merner hustled the Ron Gass trainee to the lead in the $20,000 Maritime Breeders final but released stablemate Windemere Ryan (Driven by Marc Campbell) to the front at the 28.1 opening panel and quickly retook the front. The newly established leader, Mr Kelly struck the half-mile marker in 57.1 then found three-quarters in 1:26.2 before fighting off his pocket sitting stablemate for a head victory in the stretch drive in 1:55. Windemere Ryan was second while Windmere Albert (David Dowling) finished third.

The victory was the ninth of the season for Mr Kelly, who increased his career bankroll to $58,048 for owners Marsha Knox and Kyla and Wade MacDonald of Stanhope.

Lofty Shadow was another Campbell winner in the maiden class in 2:00.1 from his own barn, while his other three wins were from catch drives. Campbell’s trips to the winner’s circle included Zack The Men (1:58.3) for trainer Michael MacDonald, La Vie En Rose (1:58.1) for trainer Stacey Lund and Shadow Of A Daut (1:57) from the Earl Watts stable.

Cowboy Logic was a dominant winner in the $2,750 Preferred 2 Pace, winning in 1:55.2 for driver Steve Shepherd, owner-trainer Harold Shepherd and co-owners Maurice McCabe, Gerard Ellsworth and Angus Birt of Charlottetown.

The connections of pacer Winter Blast hoped that special unicorn powers on the Halloween card would help propel him to victory.

After cutting his mile in the afternoon's tenth race, the Jennifer Doyle-trained veteran finished a solid second to Pillage And Burn.

The afternoon wager was $44,753. For race replays and more go to Redshores.ca. To view the results from the Saturday card, click the following link: Saturday Results - Charlottetown Driving Park.
