Summerside Showdown On Labour Day

Cowboy Logic has been impeccable on red soil, but his winning ways could come to an end courtesy of Euchred on a special Labour Day program Monday afternoon (Sept. 7) at Red Shores at Summerside Raceway.

The 13-dash Monday card has a 1 p.m. start time, with the most anticipated matchup of the afternoon coming in the ninth race. Gold Cup and Saucer Trial starter Euchred drops in class and draws post 1 in his $2,500 assignment. Owned by Kayla Habicht-Walker, Euchred last raced in the $20,000 James (Roach) MacGregor Gold Cup and Saucer consolation where he sat third and faded to sixth. The Shadow Play eight-year-old does his best work on the front end and is likely to be pointed there by driver Corey MacPherson. Walter Walker trains the 58-time winner, who looks for win number seven of the season.

Cowboy Logic has been next to untouchable his last eight starts — landing on the line first all of those starts but being placed back on July 25 — but will have to contend with the outside post 8 on Monday. Steven Shepherd will sit behind the three-year-old for trainer Harold Shepherd.

The Backstretch Beat in Monday’s card places the bullseye on Euchred as the one to beat:

“The fractions are bound to be hot in here with Euchred on the boiler. He will need to find some serious separation to keep Cowboy Logic away from him but we know he has it in him. The road to the winner’s circle goes through him.”

The featured $2,800 top-level lines up in race 12, with JJ Powerball dropping out of the Preferred level to draw post 2 for driver Brodie MacPhee, trainer Wade Sorrie and owners Austin Sorrie and Tammy Collings. The Image Of Dawn pacer was third in the Preferred last week at Red Shores Charlottetown and finished fourth in the $20,000 MacGregor consolation the start prior. Other top entries are Heart And Soul (Jason Hughes) and Pillage And Burn (Ken Murphy).
