The 2017 season has been historic for Red Shores’ Summerside leading driver Marc Campbell, and he closed out the year Sunday afternoon in Prince County with another feature pace victory.

Campbell teamed up with Forever Paradise to capture the final $2,400 Preferred pace at Summerside Raceway of the 2017 racing season.

The son of Western Paradise took a two-hole ride behind pacesetter Allstar Seelster (driven by Norris Rogers) through opening quarters of :27.1 and :56. Campbell then opted to abandon the pocket to engage Allstar Seelster for a three-quarter rating of 1:25.3 before charging past to close out the mile in 1:55.4.

Red Magician (Adam Merner) got up for second and Allstar Seelster finished third.

Forever Paradise scored his 56th lifetime win for trainer Kevin MacLean and owners David MacKenzie and Reg MacPherson of Stratford and Aaron MacKenzie of Winsloe.

MacLean had two training wins on the day, while Campbell also made two visits to the winner's circle as a driver to put the finishing touches on his Red Shores Summerside-leading 59-win total. Campbell was also leading trainer of the meet with 26 victories.

Drivers Jason Hughes and Merner both scored driving doubles on the card.

Red Shores racing now shifts solely to Charlottetown with action resuming Saturday (November 18) and Sunday (November 19) at the Capital oval. The Red Shores Charlottetown season will offer live racing until early February. Although live racing is complete at Red Shores Summerside, the location still offers gaming, dining and simulcast racing year round. Head to redshores.ca for more information.
