The "King" of Island racing, Marc Campbell demonstrated his supremacy as he made four visits to the winner’s circle Sunday, May 27 at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway in the first stakes action of the season on red soil.

Campbell scored his grand slam during a card riddled with Ruby Chappell Memorial stakes divisions for three-year-old pacing fillies and Bob Dewar Memorial stakes divisions for three-year-old pacing colts.

Sock It Away continued his undefeated season in his $5,400 Dewar division, winning in 1:57 for driver Campbell, trainer Kevin MacLean and owner Reg MacPherson of Stratford. Campbell also won a split of the $6,000 Ruby Chappell stake with Maybeitsmaybelline in a mile time of 1:58.3 for trainer Tom Weatherbie and owners Blair Hansen of Charlottetown and Cheryl Geldart Greer of Norton, N.B.

The leading reinsman made his other winning scores in overnight events with Confident Fella in 1:57 for trainer Ralph Sweet of O’Leary and Mando Fun in 1:56.4 for Paul Biggar of Tyne Valley.

Tangled Mind recorded the fastest win of the day in Dewar Memorial action, stopping the clock in 1:55.3 for trainer-driver Gilles Barrieau and New Brunswick owners Michael Clinton of Saint John and Alfred Barrieau of Dieppe. The winner in the other $5,400 Dewar divisions were Dustylanewesty, driven by Clare MacDonald, in 1:57.4, Half Cut, piloted by Mark Bradley, in 1:56.1 and The Colonel with driver Gilles Barrieau in 1:56.3.

In Ruby Chappell action, R Es Shabla, driven by Corey MacPherson, won her $6,000 split in 1:58.3, while Woodmere Ceilidh with Clare MacDonald was a winner in identical time.

One Chappell division stayed in the family, as Tobins Terror was a 1:59.3 victor for trainer-driver Gary Chappell. The daughter of Stonebridge Terror is owned by Boyd MacDonald Produce Ltd., of Crapaud and Daniel Ross of Belfast. Although Tobins Terror was the winner, the race also saw a career milestone as Ken Murphy finished second with Woodmere Wyldstyle and put the driver over $1 million in career purse earnings.

Live racing continues at Red Shores Summerside Sunday, June 3 with a 1 p.m. post time.
