CHARLOTTETOWN – Sterling Seelster will look to repeat in the $2,000 feature at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at The Charlottetown Driving Park on Thursday night.
First-race post time for the 12-dash card is 7 p.m.
Marc Campbell trains and drives the grey pacer, who leaves from Post 2 in Race 11, for owners Natasha Campbell of Winsloe and John, David and Aaron MacKenzie.
Artners In Crime is the morning-line favourite in the event for driver Ron Matheson, owner Bobbi Jo Gaudet of Charlottetown and trainer Jackie Matheson.
Machinthesand is back racing after a two-week hiatus and draws Post 3 for driver Brodie MacPhee. The Mark Bradley-trainee turned some heads earlier in the season when he stopped the clock in 1:54.4.
Other entries are Toad River (Ken Murphy), Private Joke (Mike McGuigan), Pinner (Kenny Arsenault), Artist List (Bradley) and Nobestbfor (Walter Cheverie).
The $1,300 trot class lines up in Race 3 with Scarlet Patti favoured from Post 3 for driver Campbell, trainer Darryl MacLean and owner Gordon MacLean of Winsloe. The PJs Nabby mare was a winner in 2:01.4 the last time she was in this class in August, with Campbell in the bike.
This time, she will face a real challenge from Wonderous Hanover from Post 6 for driver Brian Andrew, trainer and co-owner Mitchell Tierney of New Haven and co-owner Bill Andrew of Calgary. The four-year-old Conway Hall mare had been racing the claiming ranks at Kawartha Downs in Peterborough, Ont., and Flamboro Downs in Dundas, Ont., for trainer Brenda Lane.
Howmacs Pride is another top entry for driver MacPhee from Post 7.
The evening back-up pace lines up in Race 8 for a purse of $1,550. Doll R General is favoured off the rail for driver Mark McKinnon and owner-trainer Blair MacLeod of New Dominion. He will face real threats from Van Zant (Matheson), Bowyer Hanover (Cheverie) and Camcun (Arsenault).
Veteran driver Vaughan Doyle of Charlottetown will be searching for lifetime win number 1,000 on the card. He is one win away from the milestone, and will have four chances to break it as he sits behind Ideal Lifestyle in Race 5, Ovation Killean in Race 8, Mach Vegas in Race 9 and Pictonian Walton in Race 10.
