CHARLOTTETOWN – Pinner, with Marc Campbell in the bike, won the featured event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino on Saturday.
It was Pinner’s fifth straight victory, 10th of the season and 31st lifetime. The seven-year-old son of Mach Three, owned by trainer Brian Ladner, Kevin and Lillian Ladner of Charlottetown, toured the CDP oval in gate-to-wire fashion in 1:57.3. The track was rated good with a two-second variant. The track crew did a great job prepping the surface for the 13-dash program.
Nobestbfor was second, charted three-lengths off the leader, while Doll R General was third. The 4-2-5 triactor paid $111.40.
Stayoutofmyaffair finished fourth and triggered a superfecta payout with 4-2-5-6 at $214.05.
The afternoon showcased two trot divisions. Caliban Hanover and Ron Gass won the open class over Abundaspin and Zip the Lip, who both recovered after early breaks, to complete the top three. Zip the Lip’s miscue was costly as it ended his winning streak at four. Caliban Hanover is owned by Wendell MacDonald of Cornwall.
Who Took That, driven by Michael McGuigan, converted a pocket trip to a winning score, taking her trot class in 2:03.3.
The Andrew family has a stake in the winner as Bill co-owns with Mitchell Tierney of Cornwall while Brian Andrew drove Honeymoonisover to a second-place finish for his son Blake. Newcomer Ja El Blaze was third for Bo Sowers.
