Top Trotting Trio To Meet At Red Shores
Tuesday is trot night at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park with a prime match up in three-year-old action as Gold Cup Week racing continues.
The 12-dash card gets underway at 7 p.m., featuring the Atlantic Sires Stakes for two and three-year-old trotters.
All eyes will be on race 10 of the night as top sophomore trotters Dusty Lane Milo, Mr Finlay Ridge and A Little Go Go all draw in together in a $10,520 division. A Little Go Go is the morning line favourite after defeating his top flight foes last time out in the Atlantic Sires Stakes at Inverness Raceway in Nova Scotia. Marc Campbell trains and drives the Tad The Stud colt for owner Grayland Farm of Nova Scotia from post four.
Dusty Lane Milo has never missed the top three in his career and moves into the Jeff Holmes stable with Gilles Barrieau picking up the catch drive from post two.
Mr Finlay Ridge leaves from post three for trainer/driver Clare MacDonald while also sporting a perfect top-three record.
The Post Time Pick’s tepidly place Mr Finlay Ridge in the win position. “Which of these three colts will jump up and win is anyone’s guess but we expect Mr Finlay Ridge to find the CDP surface more to his liking. He is a big horse and when he gets rolling just watch out.”
The other $10,520 three-year-old trot division is in race six with Galeowind the favourite from the outside post seven with Campbell driving his trainee for owner Michael Bailey of Morell, P.E.I.
Two-year-old trot action lines up in races two and four with $10,260 at stake in each split.
Mr Miller (to be driven by Corey MacPherson) is favoured in race two with rail control while Up Helly Aa (Ken MacDonald) is the favourite in race four with a three-race win streak on the line.
