Winsloe native finishes 2017 with 162 victories in Charlottetown

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – After demolishing record after record in the 2017 racing season Marc Campbell chose not to rest on his laurels Sunday, winning six races in front of a packed house on the New Year’s Eve card at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park (CDP).

The Winsloe driver won Race 1 with Dads Filly in 2:04.3 for Neal Moase of Warren Grove, followed by a Race 4 victory with Woodmere Articblue in 2:02.1 from his own stable and another win from his own barn in Race 8 with Eagle Jolt in the $2,000 back-up pace in 2:01.1.

Campbell teamed up with Scarlet Safari for a 2:05.2 win for trainer Brent Campbell of Charlottetown in race 9, then another win from his own outfit with Fern Hill Breeze in 2:00.4 in Race 10 for the training triple. Driving win No. 6 of the evening came in Race 12 as Painted Pony prevailed in 2:01.4 for Raymond White of Murray River.

It was nearly seven wins but a flat tire in Campbell’s final drive of the season in the Race 13 $2,400 preferred pace would see Rose Run Quest and the record-setting driver settle for second. Adkins Hanover won the event in 1:59.4 for driver Corey MacPherson, trainer Trevor Hicken and owner Perry Burke of Gross-Ile., Que. Woggy Rocks (Gary Chappell) finished third.

The victories gave Campbell 162 wins on the year at the CDP for the new winning standard at the capital oval.

Drivingthedragon N won the $1,800 top pacing mare’s event with a 2:00.4 score for trainer-driver Jason Hughes and owner Donald MacRae of Vernon Bridge. The iron-tough Good Luck Kathy (Walter Cheverie) fell short of victory finishing a half-length behind in second in her 50th start of the season and 31st top-three finish.

Pictonian Storm capped off the year with a victory in the final race of the season for driver Wade Sorrie, trainer Austin Sorrie and owner Walter Simmons of Summerside in a time of 2:02.2.
