With a four-race winning streak on the line, Dreamfair Zenfire will attempt to put another championship win under her belt Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. 

With 11-dashes on tap, the card will get underway at 12:30 p.m., featuring the $15,117 Atlantic aged pacing mares final, presented by Standardbred Canada, in Race 8. 

Dreamfair Zenfire has drawn Post 1 in the event with trainer Marc Campbell above the wheels this week for owners Ryan and Everett MacLeod of Souris. A winner of the $8,000 Birthplace of Confederation Mares Invitational final earlier this season, the four-year-old daughter of Sunfire Blue Chip has nine wins on the season. 

Her stablemate, Arc Light, occupies the far outside Post 6 as Adam Merner gets the driving call for the Cross Roads Racing Stable of Stratford. The Camystic mare has hit the board in all 17 starts this season.  

Also in the field are Jordies Hope (to be driven by Dale Spence), Woodmere Chella (Corey MacPherson), Traces Of Purple (Jason Hughes) and Lyons Jennielee (Myles Heffernan Sr.). 

Peter MacPhee of the Post Time Picks puts Dreamfair Zenfire on top. 

“Dreamfair Zenfire is on an incredible roll right now and has an amazing nine wins this season,” said MacPhee. “We’re betting Marc will want to call the shots and if they do control it we’ll see them smiling in the winner’s circle again.”

Preferred pace

The $3,100 preferred pace hits the track in Race 10 with Rose Run Quest the top choice. Merner will sub in as the driver for trainer Gilles Barrieau, who will be competing in stakes action in New Brunswick. Blair Hansen of Charlottetown holds the ownership papers of the eight-year-old son of If I Can Dream, who has amassed 14 top-three finishes from 15 starts in 2020. 

Other top selections are Mantario (Campbell) and The Rev (Dale Spence).
