Red Shores at Summerside Raceway hosts 11-dash card Wednesday

The Atlantic Sire Stakes continue at Red Shores at Summerside Raceway on Wednesday.  
The two-year-old pacing fillies are in town as there will be three A divisions and two B classes.
Post time for the 11-dash card is 7 p.m.

First A Division
All you have to do is get around the racetrack twice Wednesday, and your filly picks up prize money. The first two-year-old division in Race 2 lines up with only five starters, thus everyone gets a piece of the $9,020 purse.
The Real Deal was mighty impressive in her Truro qualifier. Trainer Joseph Baxter was in the bike for a 2:01.3 score, pacing home in 28.4. Wednesday, Baxter hands the reins over to one of our premier drivers, Walter Cheverie.
Veteran conditioner Earl Smith let the racing world know he had a filly to contend with this season. Woodmere Rio went to the front in his first parimutuel start, and never looked back in winning in 2:00.2.

Second A Division
Trainer and new grandpa Earl Watts teams up with his daughter, Brittany, the new mom to Harrison (congratulations), with the morning-line choice in the second A stake – Howmac Sabrina – in Race 8. The daughter of Mallcious had a sparkling last quarter of 28.1, finishing second in her qualifier in 2:01.4.
Winsloe trainer Daryl MacLean sends out a Varadero Hanover filly in this split that also has an interesting qualifier. She also finished second with a last quarter in 28.4, pacing in 2:01.4. I know I'm going to have trouble calling her name – Unapologetically!

Third A Division
The queen of Canadian harness racing, Clare MacDonald, is coming to town with an Articulator filly that looks like she's special in the third A Division in Race 10. Woodmere Tango qualified in Truro, N.S., last week in 2:01, closing out the mile in 29 seconds flat. It's money time!
Going back a few years now when Meridian Magic put together one of harness racing's longest winning streaks. Well that mare foaled Magical Mistress who races in this division. This filly was a qualifying winner at Charlottetown in 2:02.3.

Morning-line B fillies
Darren Crowe ships in from Truro with Something Reel. The daughter of Articulator qualified at Truro Raceway in 2:03.1, including a solid closing quarter in 30 seconds. Off that line, she looks like “A” material.
Windermere Pay Day is favoured in the other B stake for the fillies. The homebred Articulator daughter is the first foal of the Shadow Play mare Over Shadow. Her 2:04.3 qualifying line is the fastest on the page.
The two-year-old colt pacers are in Summerside on Thursday, and post time is set for 7 p.m. Here's a little heads up in a change of post time for Friday and Saturday –  it will be 6:30 p.m. starts for the final two nights of the week.
