Dreamfair Zenfire sees herself in a tie for winningest horse in Canada but will attempt to grab the spotlight by herself Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
The Marc Campbell-trained daughter of Sunfire Blue Chip has Post 2 in Saturday's feature — the $3,100 Fillies and Mares Preferred pace — the ninth of 10 dashes scheduled for a 12:30 P.M. post time. The card also features presentations from Windemere Farms in honour of its 2022 stallion line-up.
The preferred mare’s pace is sponsored by multiple Atlantic Champion sire Malicious, with rail starter Ladylike the morning line favourite for driver David Dowling, trainer Colin Johnson and owner Debbie Element of Village Green. Dreamfair Zenfire lines up to her outside in that class while looking to add to her 16 seasonal victories. Jason Hughes will be at the controls as trainer Campbell has personal commitments over the weekend that will see him absent from the Saturday and Sunday programs. Completing the field are Filly Forty Seven (Mark Bradley), The Time To Win (Ken Murphy) and Ms Moyse (Adam Merner).
Peter MacPhee sides with Ladylike to get it all in the afternoon top event.
“Ladylike has been ‘oh so close’ the past two weeks and just missed by a whisker to Dreamfair Zenfire. She moves to the rail and those closing panels are snappy so be prepared for a winning performance.”
Race 10 is the Somewhere Fancy pace sponsored by Windemere Farms. The Somebeachsomewhere stallion just finished his racing career and will stand the 2022 season on P.E.I. Miss Sangria is the favourite in that $2,100 pace for driver Corey MacPherson and trainer Ron Gass.
Windemere Farms' new trotting stallion Legion Of Honor will sponsor the sixth race handicap trot with $2,500 on the line. Glider Man is the top entry with Merner in the seat for conditioner Jennifer Doyle.
