Somewhere Fancy Returns To PEI

Published: December 10, 2021 04:53 pm EST

Somewhere Fancy is no stranger to Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park and he returns to the fray in the Sunday (Dec. 12) Preferred Pace.

The 10-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere has rail control in the $3,400 preferred pace which is carded as Race 10 of the day. The Capital oval has 11 dashes scheduled for a 12:30 P.M. opening post time on Sunday.

Marc Campbell will drive 2018 Gold Cup and Saucer champion Somewhere Fancy for trainer Chris MacKay and owner John Mehlenbacher of Oakville, Ont. The pacer will be searching for career win number 58 on Sunday while adding to his $850,971 in career earnings.

Bugsy Maguire leaves from Post 2 for trainer Wade Sorrie and driver Dale Spence after the Bettors Delight seven-year-old visited the winner’s circle in this class last week.

Their competition includes Moonwriter (David Dowling), Screen Test (Corey MacPherson) and Chocolate Swirl (Adam Merner).

The Post Time Picks sees Somewhere Fancy as the post time favourite but will opt to take Bugsy Maguire on top this week.

“The rail horse will be drawing the majority of the wager but with him not racing in over a month we’re going to look elsewhere for a start and we’ll land on Bugsy Maguire to pound out a repeat victory.”

Race 3 of the day sees a pair of newcomers to Island racing with Bonitas Sunshine leaving from Post 2 for driver Ken Murphy, trainer Clifford Murphy and owner Boyde White of Charlottetown. The Sunshine Beach three-year-old was racing at Rideau Carleton Raceway outside Ottawa where he took his 1:56.4 lifetime best.

Tradition is another fresh face with Post 3 in the class for trainer-driver Gordie Hennessey and owners Gisele Bernard and Lori Hennessey. The Always B Miki sophomore was racing at Flamboro Downs in Ontario.

as good of a racehorse he was I was always looking forward to the day he got a chance to be a stud. His breeding and performance makes him an attractive option. I know this horse as good or better than anyone and I truly believe his foals will make some noise!!
