Four and count­ing for Idealic Life

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - Com­plied by Red Shores mar­ket­ing, brands and Play­Wise man­ager Lee Drake.

Idealic Life has been es­tab­lished as the morn­ing-line favourite in to­day’s top class at Red Shores at the Char­lot­te­town Driv­ing Park.

The race is in hon­our of Mr. Salm­ing, a for­mer Mar­itime­bred record holder on a half-mile track when he scorched Yonkers Race­way in 1:52. Post time for the 14-dash card is 12:30 p.m.

Idealic Life, who is rid­ing a four-race win­ning streak, is trained by Trevor Hicken and will be driven by Corey MacPher­son.

This trainer-driver com­bi­na­tion is one of the hottest on the Is­land.

The 12-year-old son of Western Ideal is com­ing off a 1:56.3 score and leaves from Post 6 in Race 13.

The other tri­ac­tor can­di­dates in­clude DBS Rosco (Kenny Arse­nault), who has hit the board in his last six starts for own­ers Wen­dell and Rob­bie Shaw of Sum­mer­side and Derek Fol­land of Kens­ing­ton, and Put­mans Power (Wal­ter Chev­erie) from Post 5.

The field also in­cludes The Big Bite (Shane Bernard), Painted Desert (Mark Bradley) and Likely To Win (Ken Mur­phy).

The pro­gram will also pay trib­ute to Mr. Domi, the first Mar­itime-bred, sub-1:50 per­former, who stopped the clock in 1:49.4 over Wood­bine Race­track.

Breeder El­dred Ni­chol­son will be track­side for the cooler pre­sen­ta­tion as Tempo Seel­ster (Vince Poul­ton) and Smi­ley Bayama (Ron Gass) go af­ter the top prize.

Driver Marc Camp­bell is only five vic­to­ries away from ca­reer win 1,500.

He is booked on eight horses to­day.

The Is­land har­ness rac­ing com­mu­nity is com­ing to­gether to launch a fundraiser for the Classy Lane train­ing cen­tre in On­tario af­ter a tragic fire killed 43 horses ear­lier this week.

Cus­tomers will have a chance to pur­chase tick­ets on a Gold Cup and Saucer and Gov­er­nor’s Plate prize pack­age.

Tick­ets are $10 and will be avail­able at the re­wards club in Char­lot­te­town and Sum­mer­side.
