Tymal Tyme captures Boyd Leslie Memorial Trot
CHARLOTTETOWN – Pinner, under the command of Marc Campbell, notched his fourth win in a row in the feature on a cold Saturday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
The track was rated fast, with a two-second variant, when Pinner fired off the gate. However, Campbell changed the front-end tactics’ game plan when rail sitter Bunny Mach insisted on the early lead.
The son of Mach Three-Dexter Doll tracked the leader through a 28.2-second quarter and the half-mile fraction in a minute, before taking charge at the three-quarter marker of 1:29.2 en route to a 1:59.2 two-length score for trainer and co-owner Brian Ladner along with co-owners Kevin and Lillian Ladner of Charlottetown.
Artist List (Mark Bradley) was second, with Blu Meadow Willie (Brodie MacPhee) third.
The fastest mile of the day went to Mcmaverick in 1:58.4. John Holmes did the driving for owner Keith Campbell of Tyne Valley.
Tymal Tyme gave driver Brian MacPhee back-to-back winners in the Boyd Leslie Memorial Trot.
The owner-trainer group of Tessa MacKinnon, Cindy MacDonald and Tanya MacKinnon, who purchased the cooler in memory of Leslie, made the presentation to runner-up Sandhill Angel and owner Glen Claybourne of Charlottetown.
Campbell, Mark Bradley, Walter Cheverie and Corey MacPherson also recorded driving doubles.
