For­ever Par­adise head­lines CDP fea­ture

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - Com­piled by Ni­cholas Oakes for Red Shores

For­ever Par­adise looks to keep his un­de­feated sea­son on Prince Ed­ward Is­land (2-0) go­ing tonight at Red Shores at the Char­lot­te­town Driv­ing Park.

First race post time is 7 p.m. for the 12-dash card with For­ever Par­adise look­ing for re­demp­tion in the Race 11 fea­ture.

The Kevin Ma­cLean-trainee was a sec­ond-place fin­isher in last week’s $3,500 Wal­ter Dale me­mo­rial in Fred­er­ic­ton, N.B., but was a win­ner in both his Char­lot­te­town starts this sea­son. Gilles Bar­rieau will be in the bike in the $2,250 fea­ture, draw­ing Post 1 for own­ers Reg MacPher­son and David MacKen­zie of Stratford and Aaron MacKen­zie of Winsloe.

Race an­a­lyst Les MacIsaac pegged For­ever Par­adise as the favourite.

“He of­fers a not-worse-thansec­ond record since com­ing off the bench four starts ago and gets the rail, which will al­low Gilles to work out the trip of his choice,” MacIsaac said. “Top billing.”

The five-year-old son of Western Par­adise will race against Cheyenne Ford (Kenny Arse­nault) in Post 2 and Cabo Pan Lu­cas (Daniel Mac­Don­ald) in Post 5. Other en­tries in­clude Dusty Lane Oliver (Ron Gass), My Lucky Kil­lean (Gary Chap­pell), Say It Again Sam ( Jason Hughes) and Tempo Seel­ster (Vin­cent Poul­ton).

Sin­ners In Heaven rides his two-race win streak into the Race 9 $1,700 backup pace with Terry Gallant in the bike for trainer Earls Watts and own­ers Lana Mur­phy, River Val­ley Man­age­ment of New Brunswick and Win­de­mere Farms of Hamp­shire.
