Prettyndangerous Favoured At The CDP

Another successful Governor’s Plate Week at Summerside Raceway has concluded, and thus Red Shores action will return to the Charlottetown Driving Park on Thursday evening (July 18) capital oval with 11-dashes on tap Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The first of the evening’s 11 races is scheduled to head to post at 6:30 p.m. and the top pace of the mid-week program will line up for the finale.

Prettyndangerous has been installed as the morning line favourite for Race 11. She is scheduled to line up in Post 3 for driver David Dowling, trainer/co-owner Bo Ford and fellow co-owner Arnold Myers of Charlottetown. The nine-year-old daughter of Armbro Deuce was impressive her last start over the CDP where she recorded a 1:57.2 victory. She made a break in stride last week at Summerside and finished fourth.

Miss Sangria will start from Post 2 fresh off of a trio of second-place finishes. Regular driver Adam Merner will be absent, so owner Alex MacPhee of Clyde River will have his granddaughter, Ambyr Campbell, drive Miss Sangria for trainer Melissa Rennie.

One Hot Camshaft will drop out of the open mares ranks to land in Thursday’s $2,000 finale for driver Ken Murphy and trainer Frank Hansen. Race analyst Les MacIsaac admits Prettyndangerous may be the class of the field, but with her recent breaks he will side with One Hot Camshaft for the win position.

“One Hot Camshaft went up against the open mares a couple of times at Summerside, and while she didn't get much, she didn't look totally out of place,” MacIsaac said. “The bit of class relief she gets tonight makes her a potential sleeper.”

The field will also include Dreas Good Powow (to be driven by Corey MacPherson), Charlottes Western (Marc Campbell), Paythelinebluechip (Gordie Hennessey) and Julep Hanover (Kenny Arsenault).

Freddie and Star Photo will again lock bridles in the $2,250 Open Trot (Race 9). Star Photo is riding a two-race win streak into Thursday and is fresh off of a 1:58.2 aged gelding track record at Summerside in the Andrew Perry Memorial Trot. Jason Hughes will again handle the Post 5 starter for trainer Kevin Gillis and owners Robi Hughes, James Perrot and Eric MacLauchlan of Stratford and Blair MacLauchlan of Charlottetown. Freddie will start from Post 4 for trainer-driver Campbell, while Hop Up (MacPherson) will look to replicate her eight-length romp on July 4 from Post 2.

The Stars For Life Foundation Pace has been carded as Race 5. Girl With Attitude (Murphy) highlights the field from Post 4 for trainer Fred Paynter of Kensington.

Red Shores, Standardbred Canada, and Prince Edward Island Horse Owners Association are proud to support National Caretakers Day on the program, which will feature special videos, prize giveaways and presentations.

On Thursday, Standardbred groom Abby Clow will be special guest on the ‘Inside Track’ with host Kurt Hughes at 6:15 p.m. The interview segment will be broadcast on the Red Shores TV network.
