A deeply competitive field will face off Saturday evening in the featured event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The 10-dash Saturday card gets underway at 6:00 p.m. with the $2,900 Preferred Pace hitting the track in the ninth race. Mick Dundee has rail control in the top class for owner-trainer-driver Don MacNeill of New Haven. The homebred son of Aahm Canadian Now has been knocking on the door in the preferred ranks for the past few weeks but has yet to find the winner’s circle. Last week’s winner, Euchred, has post six and rides a two-race win streak into Saturday for trainer-driver David Dowling. Revenant has yet to miss the top three this season, and the son of If I Can Dream will look for his first preferred victory with Adam Merner supplying the drive.

Race analyst Les MacIsaac sees a possibility for any one of the six entries to hit the wire first and will defer to Mick Dundee’s post position advantage.

“This one appears to be wide-open so the toteboard might be your best friend,” MacIsaac said. “There's a possibility of some early mayhem up front so if Mick Dundee can sit and stalk all the way and exploit that good late kick he could get it all.”

Also in the deep field are Half Cut (Mark Bradley), Adkins Hanover (Corey MacPherson) and Rose Run Quest (Marc Campbell).

Sodwana Bay was dominant in the Open Mares ranks last year, and showed more of the same form last week in her seasonal debut. She will contest the $2,800 Fillies and Mares Open in the seventh race of the program for trainer-driver Gilles Barrieau and owners Wayne MacRae of Fall River, N.S., and Howmac Farms Ltd., of North Wiltshire. The daughter of No Pan Intended has been assigned the outside post in the field of six. Other top entries include Innocent Kiss (Merner) and Prettyndangerous (Dowling).

Trainer Jackie Matheson will be the special guest on Inside Track with host Peter MacPhee. The interview segment will air at 5:35 p.m. on the live Red Shores broadcast. Check out for race programs and more.
