Campbell's Fillies Favoured In AtSS
Jul 13

She has been nothing short of spectacular all season and Elektra Express will look to continue her Atlantic Sires Stakes dominance tomorrow night at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway as part of Governorís Plate week racing.

First race post time is 7 p.m. for the 12 dash card with Elektra Express drawing post three in her $9,160 Atlantic Sires Stakes A division for three-year-old pacing fillies in race 11.

The three-year-old daughter of Western Paradise has all ready been victorious in Atlantic Sires Stakes action in Nova Scotia with visits to the winnerís circle at Truro Raceway on June 4 and at Inverness Raceway on July 3.

The ĎKingí 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 driverís seat for that Atlantic Sires Stakes victory.

With Campbell back in the bike, her top Friday competition will come in the form of post 1 starter Kinda Like Her (Kenny Arsenault) and Goodmorning Ky (Norris Rogers) from post five.

The first three-year-old filly A-division goes postward in race three as Elm Grove Ladyluck draws post three as the classifierís choice with Campbell in the bike for Nova Scotia owners Dan Belliveau of Halifax and Ric McNutt of Onslow Mountain. Other top choices in the compact field of five include Bonzai Beach (Gary Chappell) and Pictonian Dazzle (Ryan Ellis).

The other Atlantic Sires Stakes A-split is in race eight with a very familiar theme as the Campbell trained and driver Filly Forty Seven is installed as the morning line favourite, yet again with 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 Breederís 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 five while Shesaroyalcowgirl (Mark Bradley) gets post four in the six-horse field.

The Atlantic Sires Stakes three-year-old pacing filly B-divisions line up in races four, six and 10 for $2,500 purses.

The Andrew Perry Memorial Invitational trot lines up in race 9 with the top trotters in Atlantic Canadian racing set to do battle again. The $2,500 field includes Freddie (Campbell) from post five, Osprey Impact (Walter Cheverie) with rail control and Holy Molie Maggie (Barrieau) from post four.
