CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – It is time to face reality: the Marc Campbell stable is the next thing to unbeatable and he proved it again in track record fashion Thursday at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Freddie obliterated the overall track trotting record in the $1,850 open trot with a 1:56.3 victory for trainer-driver Campbell and owner Three Wisemen Stable of Charlottetown.

Morosita Bi (Jason Hughes) laid down the opening fractions of 28.3 and 58.1 before Freddie and the ‘King’ of Island racing used a first-over attack to clear to the lead up the backside and put down a 1:27.3 third quarter. A :29 closer added up to a 1:56.3 victory, giving Freddie a time faster than all the pacing races on the 12-dash card. It also wiped Osprey Impact’s name and 1:57.2 clocking in 2016 off the track record sign.

It is the third time Campbell set the overall track trotting record, as he had previously held it with Est Non Ila Dulcis and Real Housewife.

Osprey Impact (Walter Cheverie) was second best while Holy Molie Maggie (Gilles Barrieau) finished third.

Not So Sh, with Kenny Arsenault in the bike, had the early lead in Race 1 on June 22 at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

It was one of three wins on the card for Campbell as the only other horse he raced from his own stable, Pappy Go Go, was a winner in the back-up trotting class in 2:00.2 to establish himself as top dog in three-year-old Atlantic trotting stakes coming up in July. His other win came with Howmac Missy in 1:58.1.
The feature pace went to Jeb in 1:57.1 over Likely To Win (Adam Merner) and Mozartsplace (Barrieau). Hughes trains and drives Jeb for owners Robi Hughes and Blair and Eric MacLauclan, all of Stratford.
Live racing continues Saturday at 6 p.m. in Charlottetown with the Cecil Ladner memorial invitational while Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway has a live card on Sunday with a 1 p.m. start.
The future stars season line up Friday with two-year-old qualifying races in Summerside starting at 6 p.m. and in Charlottetown on Saturday at 11 a.m.
