SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway’s leading driver closed out the year Sunday with another feature pace victory.

Marc Campbell teamed up with Forever Paradise to capture the final $2,400 preferred pace of the 2017 racing season in Summerside. The son of Western Paradise took a two-hole ride behind pacesetter Allstar Seelster (Norris Rogers) through opening quarters of 27.1 and 56. Campbell then opted to abandon the pocket to engage Allstar Seelster for a three-quarter rating of 1:25.3 before charging past to close out the mile in 1:55.4. Red Magician (Adam Merner) got up for second with Allstar Seelster third.

Forever Paradise scored his 56th lifetime win in the event for trainer Kevin MacLean and owners David MacKenzie and Reg MacPherson of Stratford and Aaron MacKenzie of Winsloe.

MacLean had two training wins on the day while Campbell also made two visits to the winner's circle as a driver to put the finishing touches on his Summerside leading 59-win total. Campbell was also leading trainer of the meet with 26 victories.

Drivers Jason Hughes and Merner both scored driving doubles on the card. Racing now shifts solely to Charlottetown with action resuming Saturday and Sunday at the capital oval.
