With rail control and the “Blue Knight,” Jason Hughes, in the bike, Chocolate Swirl is marked as the one to beat in Friday’s (June 18) $2,950 top event at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The 11-dash Friday card has a 6 p.m. opening post time with the top class lining up in race 10.

The Jennifer Doyle-trained Chocolate Swirl is the morning line favourite in Friday’s top class. He has yet to find the winner’s circle in the spring meet, but has garnered a cheque in all five of his outings since the resumption of racing for co-owners Doyle and Danny Birt. The six-year-old son of Mach Three was a seven-time winner in 2020 and scored four wins during winter racing at Red Shores Charlottetown. Moonwriter gets the outside in the compact field of five with David Dowling handling the driving duties for trainer Colin Johnson winning at this class the first two cards of racing in Summerside. Soccer Hanover (Corey MacPherson) is another top entrant from post two. Also in the field are Best To Hurst (Taylor Doyle) and Pictonian Storm (Marc Campbell).

The Backstretch Beat in Friday’s card has Chocolate Swirl locked in the win position:

“Chocolate Swirl got home well his last start to be a part of the triactor against some stiff competition. Now with rail control we see Jason getting well placed at the start to capitalize on that brush down the stretch. Top call.”

The Ron Cobb Memorial lines up as race 3 with a $1,900 purse. Ruby Rae Crow, from the Kyle Williams barn, has been installed as the favourite with Taylor Doyle in the driver’s seat. Other top contenders include Nowhere Man and Fire Jet.

Race 5 is the Red Shores Tailgate Party pace, which will see Vicky Everyday as the morning line choice from post 3 with Zach Conway at the lines for his father, owner-trainer Paul Conway. The daughter of Cougar Hall's main opponents are the inside duo of Magical Lily Beat and Slightly Twisted.
