SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – It is starting to sound like a broken record but Marc Campbell cleaned up again ‪Sunday afternoon at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The Winsloe resident captured four dashes Sunday on the 13-race card, including the afternoon feature and a leg of the Atlantic Aged Mares Pacing Series.

The ‘King’ of Island racing sent Woodmere Articblue to the front from Post 7 in the $3,870 pacing series leg with fractions of 28.2, 57.3 and 1:26.4 before kicking clear for a 13-length victory in 1:55.4. Campbell also trains the five-year-old daughter of Articulator for owners Tanya Tremblett and Stevi Jardine of Nova Scotia.

Brodys Leona (Corey MacPherson) finished second with Sos Bambie (Gary Chappell) third.

The other mares division went to Ramblinglily and driver Walter Cheverie in a 1:57.2 score through front-end fractions of 28.1, 58.3 and 1:27.4. Allan Jones of New Brunswick trains and co-owns the seven-year-old daughter of Articulator with fellow New Brunswick resident Norman Leger. Shadows Myster (Kenny Arsenault) got up for the show prize while third place went to Best Risque (Jason Hughes).

The $2,400 afternoon feature was full of familiar tactics for Campbell and Eagle Jolt as the 10-year-old son of Village Jolt moved first over to wear down pacesetter Junebugs Baby (Myles Heffernan) and win by a half-length in 1:56.2. Junebugs Baby was second with Narragansett (Hughes) third. Eagle Jolt is owned by Wilbur and Marie MacDonald of Orwell Cove.

Campbell had his two other visits to the winner’s circle with Ryans Allstar, his own trainee, in 1:58.1 and with Winrlosedrnkdaboze for trainer Earl Watts in 2:00.2.

Campbell leads the Summerside driving colony with 15 wins this season.

It was a day Devon Wallace of Alberton will never forget as he captured his first lifetime driving win aboard Im On Schedule off a pocket score of 2:01.1 ‪at 22-1 odds for owner David Lewis of Alberton.

MacPherson had a driving triple on the card winning with Scotty Mach N in 1:56.3 for trainer Trevor Hicken of Montague, Souverain in 2:00.4 for owner-trainer Phil Sizer of Kensington and Brief Interlude in 2:01.1 for owner-trainer Paul Conway of Bonshaw.

Watts also had a training double with Woodmere Luckypercy (Chappell) in 2:00.2.

Live racing continues Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in Charlottetown.
