JK Special has drawn the rail in the Atlantic Aged Mares Pacing Series Final, presented by Standardbred Canada and Red Shores, Saturday night at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

First-race post time is 6:00 p.m.

Walter Cheverie will drive the daughter of Cammibest for trainer Joe Smallwood and will start beside favourite General Luckypercy for trainer Jackie Matheson. Matheson handles the conditioning duties for his sister, Jodilyn Shepherd, of Cambridge, Ont. and Jack Brown of Stratford. Gilles Barrieau will be in town to drive General Luckypercy, who is riding a three-race winning streak. Barrieau shook loose from the back of the pack to win by a half-length in her last start in an impressive 1:56.1 to keep the streak alive.

The other bankroller is Private Joke with $17, 125 earned so far this season for owners Wade Peconi, Breadalbane, Windemere Farms and John Howatt. The Earl Watts trainee has the services of Gary Chappell from Post 6. The star line-up also includes Elm Grove Future, Charlottes Maggie, Dreaming and Shooters Bay.

The card also carries two divisions of the Maritime Breeders Eliminations for three-year-old trotters. Majian Dillion, fresh off an Atlantic Breeders Crown victory last weekend, and Est Non Ila Dulcis from the Buntainwood Farm in Brackley Beach are favourites in their respective divisions.

Waiting On A Woman Puts Winning Streak On The Line Sunday At Summerside

The Open trotters will headline the Sunday afternoon program at Red Shores Summerside.

First-race post time is 1:00 p.m.

Waiting On A Woman, who has won his last two starts since arriving home from the Ontario circuit, moves to the Prince County oval, to try to extend his winning ways to three straight. Brodie MacPhee has been assigned that task from trainer Mitch Tierney who co-owns with David Tierney of Cornwall.

It won’t be easy. Saulsbrook Balance and Willie Murphy will start from Post 7. Trainer Cindy MacDonald has also entered Diamond Mine with Mark Cullen listed to drive. Meanwhile Caliban Hanover is known for his finishing touch. Ron Gass will do the driving for Wendell MacDonald of Cornwall. Former stakes star Scarlett Patti, with Darrel MacLean will be tough and Hall Trot, driven by Todd Walsh, has been part of the ticket in the Open division, too.

War Cry Ranger and Brian Andrew have landed on the cones for the $1,600 event in race 11. Narragansett, Instant Fantasy, McMaverick and JJ Maywest complete the power-packed field.

Pictonian Espresso is the morning line favorite in the PEI Preserve Company Pace in Race 9. Jason Hughes will do the driving for Summerside’s leading trainer Blaine McKenna.
