The draw for this Saturday's $100,000 Gold Cup and Saucer final, presented by Atlantic Lottery Corporation, took place during the Tuesday (Aug. 15) program at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The posts for the nine-horse final were drawn by the Gold Cup and Saucer Ambassadors while being officiated by the Atlantic Provinces Harness Racing Commission.

Trial 1 winner — and the fastest trial winner by virtue of his 1:50.4 score — Funatthebeach N will leave from post five while stablemate and Trial 2 winner Covered Bridge has the trailing post nine. P L Ozzy, the Trial 3 winner from Monday, will depart from the rail on Saturday night. 

The Smash The Track promotion for $10,000 on the Gold Cup final returns for 2023 presented by Warren Ellis & Family of Summerside Chrysler Dodge. The current track record is 1:50.1. If the track record is broken in the Gold Cup & Saucer, $5,000 will go to the winner and the remaining horses will each receive $625.
