A pair of top-notch mainland pacers will take on some of P.E.I.’s finest overnight pacers in top class action Sunday afternoon (Sept. 16) at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The 12-dash program starts off at 1 p.m. with the top class going to gate in race 11 for a $2,200 purse. K D Overdrive has been installed as the morning-line favourite as the New Brunswick pacer ships in after last racing at Bangor Raceway in Maine. Stephen Mason trains the winner of 21 lifetime races for owner Stephen Downey of Quispamsis, N.B. Corey MacPherson receives the catch-driving call in the Sunday feature and will leave from post four with K D Overdrive. Goliaths Reigns also makes the trek from the mainland for the top event fresh off a pair of wins at Exhibition Park Raceway in Saint John, N.B. Dale Spence drives the winner of $96,000 in purses for Truro, N.S., trainer Dawn Ellis Abbott.

Race analyst Bo Ford goes a different direction and looks at post-five starter Likely To Win to visit the winner’s circle at 4-1 morning-line odds at the Prince County half-miler. Adam Merner will drive the Melissa Rennie trainee as he drops out of preferred action into his Sunday contest.

“You want to serve this horse at or above the morning line and we will be a happy camper,” Ford said of Likely To Win. “He got kicked out the back in his last start, but there will be no out the back today. On the class drop, catch him if you can.”

Other entries include Mando Fun, Narragansett and White Fish Flash.

Twice As Bright rides a two-race win streak into race 12 as the morning-line favourite in the $1,500 event from post two for driver David Dowling and trainer Elton Millar. The eight-year-old son of Armbro Deuce was a winner in 1:58 and change in both of his last two starts for owners Kyle Williams of Ellerslie and Catlin Blaisdell of Souris, P.E.I.
