The Guardian Gold Cup and Saucer trials are just around the corner, and a field laden with prospective contenders will face off in the Saturday (August 7) preferred pace at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The city track will host a 13-dash card on Saturday at 6:00 p.m., with perhaps the toughest $3,400 race in the history of Canadian harness racing lining up in the Race 12 feature.

Truro track record holder Time To Dance will look for his sixth straight win in that preferred class. Adam Merner picks up the catch driving assignment for trainer and regular driver Marc Campbell, who will be in Cape Breton for stakes action on Saturday, and owners Brent Campbell and Matt McDonald. The defending Gold Cup and Saucer champion will leave from Post 7 on Saturday against an incredibly talented group of foes.

Hitman Hill joins the Kenny Arsenault stable with Post 5 on Saturday with the trainer in the bike for the American Ideal pacer’s first Atlantic start since relocating from Yonkers Raceway. A winner of $516,000 lifetime, Hitman Hill was a winner his last start at Yonkers in 1:54.1.

Outkast Blue Chip has Post 4 with Ken Murphy in the bike for trainer Trevor Hicken. The $300,000 winner was victorious his last start at Harrah’s Philadelphia in 1:53.1.

The richest Atlantic bred pacer of all-time, The Rev, has Post 3 for his 2021 Atlantic debut for trainer-driver Gilles Barrieau as he looks to add to his 46 lifetime wins and $635,582 in prize money.

Peter MacPhee thinks the win streak will continue for Time To Dance as he places him in the win position of the Post Time Picks. “Time To Dance has been on top of his game in 2021 and the last time we saw him was setting a track record over Truro in 1:51.3. He draws post seven and gets a new pilot, but we think they make it six in a row.”

Also in the power packed field are Racemup (Walter Cheverie), Rose Run Quest (Mark Bradley), Rock Lights (Jason Hughes) and Moonwriter (David Dowling).
