Doctor Royal kept his East Coast streak of perfection intact in the Saturday, May 11 $2,900 Preferred Pace at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Gilles Barrieau sat behind Doctor Royal for owner-trainer Dawn Ellis Abbott. Doctor Royal led unchallenged at every station through fractions of :27.3, :56.1 and 1:25.4 before stopping the clock in 1:56.2. Mick Dundee finished second with Adkins Hanover third.

The Melissa Rennie stable and driver Adam Merner came to play on the program, taking the top prize in two races on the evening. Revenant won his $2,500 event in 1:57.1 for owner Kyla MacDonald of Stanhope, then Likely To Win hit the wire first in 2:00 later in the card for owners Blenise Young, Lester Campbell and Jeffrey Campbell.

The Leonard MacPhail Memorial pace went to Twice As Bright in 1:58.4 as the first part of a Dowling driving triple. Elton Millar of Tyne Valley trains the nine-year-old son of Armbro Deuce.

Dowling also had a pair of winners from his own stable on the Saturday card as Slide Guitar was a winner in 1:59.2 for owner Brittany Watts and Euchred took the finale in 1:58.1 for owner Kayla Habicht Walker.

Leading driver Marc Campbell opened up the card with wins in the first three races. Unapologetically was a 2:00.4 victor for trainer Darryl MacLean in the opener, then Campbell reunited with his former stakes-star pupil Elektra Express to win Race 2 in 1:59.1 for trainer Jennifer Doyle of Earnescliffe. JKs Boy completed the hat trick in Race 3 with a 2:01.1 score with Campbell driving for Leith Waite of Summerside.
