Tymal Tyme captures Boyd Leslie Memorial
Pinner, under the command of Marc Campbell, notched his fourth win in a row in the afternoon feature on a cold Saturday at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
The track was rated fast, with a two-second variant, when Pinner fired off the gate, but Campbell changed the frontend tactics game plan when rail sitter Bunny Mach insisted on the early lead. The son of Mach Three-Dexter Doll tracked the leader through a 28.2 quarter and half mile in a minute before taking charge at the three-quarter marker of 1:29.2 en route to a 1:59.2 two-length score for trainer and co-owner Brian Ladner along with co-owners Kevin and Lillian Ladner of Charlottetown.
Artist List (Mark Bradley) was second with Blu Meadow Willie (Brodie MacPhee) third. The 4-2 exactor paid $11 with the 4-2-5 triactor returning $44.80.
The fastest mile of the day went to Mcmaverick in 1:58.4. John Holmes did the driving for owner Keith Campbell of Tyne Valley.
Tymal Tyme gave driver Brian MacPhee back-to-back winners in the Boyd Leslie Memorial trot class. The owner-trainer group of Tessa MacKinnon, Cindy MacDonald and Tanya MacKinnon, who purchased the cooler in memory of Leslie, made the presentation to runner-up Sandhill Angel and owner Glen Claybourne of Charlottetown.
Campbell, Bradley, Walter Cheverie and Corey MacPherson also recorded driving doubles.
