Streaks on the line on CDP program
Best Risque will try to extend her winning streak to four in a row today at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Post time is 12:30 p.m. The nine-year-old mare leaves from Post 7 in Race 9 with Corey MacPherson in the bike for trainer Brian Ladner and coowners Lilian and Kevin Ladner of Charlottetown. Sam (Jason Hughes) and Blazing By (Brian Andrew), who made up the triactor ticket last week, will be gunning off the gate from the inside.
Idealic Life goes after his sixth win in a row in the backup class in Race 12. Trainer Trevor Hicken has also assigned MacPherson to drive. This team has been perfect after their relationship began in early December, reeling off impressive performances that included two trips in 1:56.3.
Pictonian Storm, who triggered a $353.70 win ticket last week, goes for trainer-driver Wade Sorrie and owner Walter Simmons of Summerside. The son of Western Paradise is perfect in 2016.
Marc Campbell is a victory away from career No. 1,500. He is down to drive five horses with his first opportunity coming in the opener aboard Hog Aufray.
