'Zenfire' Takes Aim At CDP Headliner

Published: October 20, 2021 12:44 pm EDT

Dreamfair Zenfire will control the rail in her pursuit of victory in Thursday evening's (Oct. 21) main event at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The 12-dash program at the capital oval kicks off at 6 p.m., and the $3,100 Fillies and Mares Preferred Pace is carded as race 11.

Marc Campbell trains and drives the morning line favourite Dreamfair Zenfire, who starts from post 1, for owners Ryan and Everett MacLeod. The daughter of Sunfire Blue Chip suffered broken equipment at the start of her latest race, but has been superb the rest of the season with 11 wins so far in 2021. Her fastest score was in an Atlantic and track record performance of 1:52.3 in August in Charlottetown.

Fellow Campbell trainee Arc Light will start from post 3 with Jason Hughes in the seat this week. The Island-bred mare continues her climb to $100,000 in lifetime earnings and now sits just $2,029 shy of the milestone.

Larjon Legacy will leave from post 2 with Adam Merner getting the catch driving call from trainer Bo Ford in the absence of the injured Gilles Barrieau, who regularly pilots the 20-time winner.

Ladylike (David Dowling) and newcomer Do U Mind (Mark Bradley) complete the field.

The Post Time Picks in Thursday’s card have Peter MacPhee placing Dreamfair Zenfire on top of his tickets:

“Dreamfair Zenfire has been awesome this season and if you need more proof check out her stats. She also lands on the cones and Campbell will be aiming for the front so if they do get to the lead it could be lights out.”

Cheeky Little Minx gets top call in the $2,700 Open Trot, carded as race seven. Kenny Arsenault will drive the Barrieau trainee for owners Wayne MacRae and Howmac Farms Ltd. Her top foes are Daisy River (Hughes) and Freddie (Campbell).
