The ‘Beast’ was unleashed Friday evening (June 12) as newcomer Silver Beast easily toured the oval in the finale at the Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown.

Silver Beast went off at the heavy post time favourite and found no challengers in his $2,000 assignment for driver David Dowling, trainer Brittany Watts and owner Island Silver Stables of Kelvin Grove, P.E.I. It was the first start on red soil for the four-year-old Ontario Sires Stakes graduate. who was recently acquired by his new connections. The Betterthancheddar pacer cruised through splits of :29.3, 1:00.4 and 1:29.4 before closing out the mile in 1:57.4 over Bold N Bad (driven by Jason Hughes) and Messier Seelster (Marc Campbell).

Jetster topped off a driving hat trick for trainer/driver Campbell in the $2,850 featured Preferred 2 Pace, just one night after the driver scored five wins in the bike. Jetster used a first-over assault heading to the half-mile marker to overtake Hes Marvalous (Myles Heffernan) and open up by four lengths to win in a lifetime-best-equalling performance of 1:56.1. Jamie Struthers of Glace Bay, N.S. owns the Jeremes Jet eight-year-old, who celebrated his 30th lifetime victory. Creepin (Dowling) finished second in the top event while Hes Marvalous was third.

Campbell’s other wins were with Freddie, from his own stable, in the $2,400 Horses & Geldings Handicap Trot in 2:00.1 and the Michael Gallant-trained World Wonder in a maiden-breaking score in 1:57.4.

The $2,400 Fillies & Mares Handicap Trot class was won by Hop Up (Corey MacPherson) in 2:00.2 for owner/trainer Keith Campbell of Victoria West, P.E.I.

Live racing continues Saturday evening at the capital oval with a 6 p.m. post time for the 10-dash program.
