Camp­bell fil­lies favoured

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

Elek­tra Ex­press has been noth­ing short of spec­tac­u­lar all sea­son and she will look to con­tinue her At­lantic Sires Stakes dom­i­nance tonight at Red Shores at the Summerside Race­way.

First race post time is 7 p.m. for the 12-dash card with Elek­tra Ex­press draw­ing Post 3 in her $9,160 At­lantic Sires Stakes A di­vi­sion for three-year-old pac­ing fil­lies in Race 11. The three-yearold daugh­ter of Western Par­adise has al­ready been vic­to­ri­ous in At­lantic Sires Stakes ac­tion in Nova Sco­tia with vis­its to the win­ner’s cir­cle at Truro Race­way on June 4 and at In­ver­ness Race­way on July 3.

The ‘King’ of Is­land rac­ing, Marc Camp­bell, is favoured in ev­ery A di­vi­sion on the card with fil­lies from his own sta­ble. Camp­bell will sit be­hind Elek­tra Ex­press for owner Dan­ica El­lis of Brook­field, N.S., after elect­ing to drive sta­ble­mate Elm Grove Lady­luck in her lat­est out­ing, leav­ing Gilles Bar­rieau in the driver’s seat for that At­lantic Sires Stakes vic­tory. With Camp­bell back in the bike, her top com­pe­ti­tion tonight will come in the form of Post 1 starter Kinda Like Her (Kenny Arse­nault) and Good­morn­ing Ky (Nor­ris Rogers) from post 5.

The first three-year-old filly A di­vi­sion goes in Race 3 as Elm Grove Lady­luck draws Post 3 as the clas­si­fier’s choice with Camp­bell in the bike for Nova Sco­tia own­ers Dan Bel­liveau of Hal­i­fax and Ric McNutt of Onslow Moun­tain.

The other At­lantic Sires Stakes A split is in Race 8 with a very fa­mil­iar theme, as the Camp­bell trained and driven Filly Forty Seven is in­stalled as the favourite from Post 3 in the $9,160 con­test.

Elek­tra Ex­press may lead the way in the At­lantic Sires Stakes, but Filly Forty Seven has earned the most money so far this sea­son, thanks largely to her $23,600 Mar­itime Breeder’s fi­nal vic­tory. The three-year-old daugh­ter of Proven Lover is owned by Dar­ryl MacLean of Winsloe, Kate­lyn Small­wood of Strat­ford, Cory Carver of Mon­tague and Nova Sco­tian Tanya Trem­blett of Syd­ney Mines. Traces Of Pur­ple (Bar­rieau) was a con­vinc­ing 1:57.2 win­ner in At­lantic Sires stakes ac­tion in In­ver­ness on July 3 and draws post 5 while Sh­e­saroy­al­cow­girl (Mark Bradley) gets post 4 in the six-horse field.
