‘Kisser’ kisses field good night at CDP
Cambest Kisser used rail control Wednesday at Red Shores at the Summerside to kiss his five opponents goodnight in the Race 11 feature.
The eight-year-old Cambest gelding was blasted off the wings by trainer-driver Jason Hughes laying down all the numbers (28.2, 58.1, 1:28) and held on by a quarter of a length for a 1:57.1 score. Donald and Steven MacRae of Vernon Bridge share the ownership on the winner of 29 lifetime races. Machinthesand was second while Oh To Be Me was third.
The win gave The Blue Knight a driving and training double on the card, as he won with twoyear-old Mister Big colt How macsliberty.
Two-year-old winner in Race 5 was the son of Shadow Play, Instant Shadow, pacing to a new lifetime mark of 1:57.3.
Owned by the Ultimate Stable and Robert Kyle, the Sifroi Melanson-trainee gave leading driver Gilles Barrieau his first of two victories on the night.
Kenny Murphy also enjoyed a driving double on the card, scoring with Jays Little Spark and Tammysmist.
Racing returns to Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park tonight at 7 p.m.
