Pinner will try to make it five in a row in this afternoon’s top class at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
First race post time for the 13-dash card is 1 p.m.
Pinner has post 4 in the Race 12 $2,200 feature with Marc Campbell in the bike for co-owner and trainer Brian Ladner and co-owners Kevin and Lillian Ladner of Charlottetown.
Pinner will face off with McJestic, who has post 3 for driver Corey MacPherson. McJestic has an identical winning time to Pinner in his latest outing, and used off-the-pace tactics to land in the winner’s circle. Another threat in the eight-horse field is New Brunswick ship-in Malek Hanover (Mike Stevenson), who earned more than $20,000 this season racing the tough Maine circuit. The nine-year-old son of Western Hanover is trained by New Brunswick’s Bo Sowers, who has five horses entered on the afternoon card.
Other entries in the race are Blu Meadow Willie (Robert MacInnis), Nobestbfor (Walter Cheverie), Doll R General (Mark McKinnon), Stayoutofmyaffair (Jason Hughes), and Artist List (Mark Bradley).
A compact group of five will contest the Race 6 $1,500 open trot as Zip The Lip has a four-race win streak on the line from post 5 for driver Brian MacPhee, co-owner and trainer Donald Sweet and owner Orville Willis, both of O’Leary. Abundaspin (Harold Shepherd) has post 4 and will try to find a way to defeat Zip The Lip after being unable to since Nov. 2.
Also in the race is Wonderous Hanover (Michael McGuigan), Buckling Banbury (Corey MacPherson) and Caliban Hanover (Ron Gass).
Race 9 has the back-up pace for a purse of $1,550. The race has Oakrock Almighty favoured off the rail for driver Ron Matheson, trainer Jackie Matheson, and owners Jack Keenan of Stratford and Joseph Dahl of Ontario. Other top competitors include Capitalism (Jason Hughes) from post 9 and Sterling Seelster (Campbell) with post 3.
