After taking on the finest pacers in Atlantic Canada, Heart And Soul returns to top-class action on a special Monday afternoon (Oct. 12) program at Red Shores at Summerside Raceway.

Heart And Soul has drawn the outside in a compact five-horse field in the afternoon's $2,600 featured event, carded as race 12 on a 13-race program. Heart And Soul has been installed as the morning line favourite after pacing in 1:55.1 but failing to earn a cheque in his latest against top invitational stars like Time To Dance and Rose Run Quest. Jason Hughes will drive the George Riley-trained son of Western Paradise for Riley Farms Ltd. The former Maritime champion boasts five wins and five second-place finishes from 15 seasonal starts. His main competition comes from Melanies Magic (post 1) with Dale Spence at the controls for trainer MacKenzie MacInnis. Bugger Max (Mark Haig), who ships in from New Brunswick, will leave from post 3.

The Backstretch Beat in Monday’s card pegs Heart And Soul as the one to beat:

“Heart And Soul drops out of the top class and into a group he has shown he can handle every single week. He should be the top dog in the feature again.”

Flash In The Pang (Ken Murphy) and Brandons Glory (Adam Merner) round out the featured field.

The afternoon's $2,250 back-up pace is carded as the finale, with Best To Hurst the morning line favourite from post 6. David Dowling will be in the driver’s seat for trainer Jonah Moase and owner Neal Moase. Other top entries are Union Man Hanover (Spence) and Instant Shadow (Myles Heffernan Sr.).

The Monday afternoon card has a 1 p.m. (AST) opening post time.
