Carl MacKenzie's Pictonian Wayvue has drawn the rail for Saturday's elimination heat of the Maritime Breeders championship series at Charlottetown Driving Park Entertainment Centre.

However, the Quick Comeback colt will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to advance to the $20,000 (estimated) final on June 23. Clare MacDonald will do the driving.

Carl MacKenzie's Pictonian Wayvue has drawn the rail for Saturday's elimination heat of the Maritime Breeders championship series at Charlottetown Driving Park Entertainment Centre.

However, the Quick Comeback colt will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to advance to the $20,000 (estimated) final on June 23. Clare MacDonald will do the driving.

Pictonian Wayvue, a stakes winner last season for the 82-year-old Truro owner, has drawn into an eight-horse division that is loaded with talent, including the 2007 Maritime seasonal sophomore leader No Cam Ray (PP5), who will be driven by Todd Trites.

Others include Force Ore Finesse, last year's Atlantic Sires Stakes champion who will be driven by Phil Pinkney for the Truro-based KPD Stables; Mr.Sundin, last year's Island Breeders champion, Pictonian Manzu, a 1:59 winner last Sunday at Truro and Western Dexter, a winner at Montreal earlier this year.

The other colt division sees Woodmere Winstar leaving on the rail for Danny Romo in a nine-horse field that includes J F Money (Henry Smallwood) and Smarty JT (Emmons MacKay).

The top four finishers earn a berth in the championship series.

The Charlottetown program also features two elimination heats for three-year-old pacing fillies and three-year-old trotters.

Northie T, last year's Nova Scotia Series champion for owners Lloyd Nelson of Truro and Robert Watt of Timberlea, drew Post 2 in her filly division where Sothview Sally is the morning line favorite.

Dunachton Gale, fresh off a 1:54.4 Maritime seasonal best performance, was favored to win his division of the Cecil Ladner Memorial Series. Lies The Truth, a newcomer to the Darren Crowe Stables at Truro, and P H Mike, a 1:56.3 winner at Truro this year, are the ones to beat in the other five-horse divison.
