After powering by in the stretch last week, Arc Light will look for her third straight win in Thursday evening’s (June 17) top event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Thursday’s 12-dash presentation has a 6 p.m. opening post time, with the featured Fillies and Mares Preferred hitting the track in race 11 for a $3,100 pot.

Arc Light provided an upset in last week’s Preferred, with trainer Marc Campbell at the controls for Crossroads Racing Stable. The five-year-old daughter of Camystic has post 2 this week and has been installed by Gerard Smith as the 7-2 third choice on the morning line. Ladylike is the early favourite, with David Dowling again sitting behind the track record-setting daughter of Shadow Play from post 3.

Woodmere Skyroller sits on a pair of second-place finishes heading into Thursday’s bout, and gets the outside post 5 with leading driver Gilles Barrieau in the seat for trainer Kevin MacLean.

Peter MacPhee places Woodmere Skyroller on top of his Post Time Picks:

“Woodmere Skyroller has been razor sharp to start the meet and has finished second in back to back weeks,” MacPhee said. “Don’t forget she did have 12 wins last year and with Barrieau back in the bike they’re a good bet to hit the line first.”

Also in that top field are Filly Forty Seven (Jason Hughes) and Roselily (Brodie MacPhee).

The top trot of the evening is in race 9, with Hop Up putting a three-race win streak to the test against the boys this week. Corey MacPherson will handle the driving duties for owner-trainer Keith Campbell. The seven-year-old daughter of Tad The Stud delivered as the favourite in her last three starts, including a 1:58.2 victory on June 3 at Red Shores Charlottetown. Freddie was back last week with a down-the-road score of 2:00.2 for trainer-driver Campbell and gets rail control. Glider Man (Kenny Arsenault) has been perfect in hitting the board all season, but must overcome post 6 this week.
