A full slate of 12 dashes will be featured Sunday afternoon (August 2) at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The first of a dozen races slated for the Prince County oval has a 1:00 p.m. post time on Sunday afternoon. Former Atlantic stakes star Heart And Soul is the morning line favourite in Race 11, the top class of the day carrying a $2,700 purse. Walter Cheverie will steer the Maritime champion son of Western Paradise for trainer George Riley and owner Riley Farms of Summerside. A winner of 28 lifetime races and $104,849 in purses, Heart And Soul will leave from Post 5 in the field of seven.

Pillage And Burn has been unheeded at every fraction since being claimed for $8,500 in Truro by owner Perry Burke of Quebec and placed in the Trevor Hicken stable. The Cams Card Shark nine-year-old will leave from Post 3 on Sunday with Brodie MacPhee in the bike as he looks for his third straight Island victory. Mystery Phil knocked off the top event last Sunday and has another good starting spot from Post 4 for trainer Melissa Rennie and driver Adam Merner.

The Backstretch Beat in Sunday’s program lists Pillage And Burn as the top choice to find his nose on the wire first. “Pillage And Burn has yet to taste defeat in the Hicken stable so we’ll wager today will not be the day that changes.”

Completing the field are Phil Dorleans (Ken Murphy), Woodmere Ideal Art (Robert Laffin), Jeb (Jason Hughes) and Mach It Again (Dale Spence).

Mantario leads the way in the $2,200 back-up pace in the ninth race. MacPhee picks up the catch drive for trainer Dale Sobey and owner Walter Simmons of Summerside. Other top entries in that class are Howmac Magic (Hughes) and Painted Desert (Corey MacPherson).
