Mighty and Strong, owned by Patrick Morris of Charlottetown, has drawn the rail in a super looking top class tonight at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Post time for the 12-dash event that will be carried online is 7 p.m.
The broadcast is at www.redshores.ca.
The seven-year-old son of Astreos has the rail for driver Ron Matheson.
His son, Jackie, trains the $151,835 lifetime winner who has had his share of good fortune in the draw lately, landing on Post 1 and 2 his last two starts. Matheson has good results this season with six top-three finishes out of his 10 starts this season.
The task won’t be easy against the power-packed field of five.
The morning line favourite is Roscoes Child for driver Brodie MacPhee and the Selkirk Stable of Belfast.
The Ross MacKenzie trainee, who has charted miles in the 1:56 range, leaves from Post 4 and attempts his fifth win of the year.
Sombrero Blue Chip could spoil the party too. The Governor’s Plate consolation starter went miles in 1:55.4 over Summerside for owner Jennifer Doyle of Vernon River and conditioner Darren Trainer. Trainer has listed the services of Brian MacPhee.
BJ Cruiser and newcomer Allamerican Navavjo, a purchase for Bill Andrew of Calgary, have the ability to be a major piece of the ticket.
