Campbell Dominates Sunday Stakes Program
ATLANTIC CLASSIC SALE 2017
Summerside , PE -The best three-year-old pacers in The Maritimes invaded Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway Sunday afternoon and the 'King' of Island racing continued his red hot streak and stole the show.
Marc Campbell has been on a roll in Island racing action in recent weeks and continued the trend Sunday afternoon as he won five stakes races on the program from his own stable. The card featured three-year-old pacing fillies competing in four divisions of the Ruby Chappell Memorial Stakes and three-year-old pacing colts facing off in the Bob Dewar Memorial Stake.
Campbell trainees captured three Chappell divisions with Elektra Express winning the fastest split in 1:56.3 for the trainer-driver and owner Danica Ellis of Nova Scotia. Campbell's other Ruby Chappell victories came aboard Elm Grove Ladyluck in 1:57.1 and Filly Forty Seven in 1:57.4. The other $6,550 filly division was claimed by Kinda Like Her in 1:58.1 as part of a driving triple for Kenny Arsenault.
