Sock It Away Seeks 19th Win

Sock It Away will resume his remarkable three-year-old season as he again takes on the Preferred Pace Saturday afternoon (Dec. 1) at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at Charlottetown Driving Park. The 15-dash program has a 12:30 p.m. start time.

Sock It Away, looking for the 19th win of his sophomore campaign in as many starts, is saddled with post 5 in the $2,650 Preferred, carded as race 14. Marc Campbell once again will drive the son of Pang Shui for trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson. The pacer will tackle four foes, including top Invitational pacer Czar Seelster, who has post 2 with Kenny Arsenault at the controls. Also in the field are Rockin Indy (Corey MacPherson), Winter Blast (Jason Hughes) and Rollwithitharry (Ron Matheson).

Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees no reason Sock It Away cannot extend his win streak after defeating this group in his two latest races.

“Sock It Away has tackled the big boys for his last two starts, and had either of them been fights they would have been stopped. That's how easily he won,” MacIsaac said. “Other than the likely short price, there's not much to dislike.”

Race eight will see open pacing fillies and mares vie for a $2,350 purse, as Elektra Express returns to the East Coast for new trainer Jennifer Doyle. Jason Hughes will drive the four-year-old daughter of Western Paradise, who was a top two- and three-year-old in the Atlantic Stakes program the past two years before leaving to compete in the United States late last year. Other top entries include Collective Wisdom (Drew Neill) and Prettyndangerous (David Dowling).

Burn Out Hanover makes his Atlantic Canadian debut in race nine as the morning-line favourite for new owner-trainer Jeff Holmes. The three-year-old son of Well Said is out of the great pacing mare Burning Point, and will be looking for a new lease on life from post 1 with Arsenault in the bike after struggling recently on the Ontario circuit.

December 1, 2018 - 9:51 amIf Sock It Away can continue

Mike Mobley SAID...

If Sock It Away can continue his lofty streak for another month, he may end up as the sport's winningest horse in North America in 2018. Three other horses have 19 wins; Southwind Amazon, the current leader, has 20.
