Dunachton Gale will be looking to extend his win streak to five in a row when he faces seven rivals in the $7,500 Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition Cup on Saturday night at Truro Raceway.

The six-year-old stallion will be looking to repeat in the signature race of the season at the Bible Hill oval, where he won last year in 1:53.2, the fastest mile ever in Nova Scotia harness racing.

Closing in on $200,000 in career earnings, Dunachton Gale is expected to receive a stiff challenge from Olay Olay, a three-year-old star from the powerful Whebby Racing Stable of Dartmouth. Olay Olay earned more than $100,000 last year as a two-year-old.

The American bred colt is eligible for The Little Brown Jug, harness racings premier pacing event.

Olay Olay was out for a qualifier last Sunday and paced a mile in 1:57.4 all by himself.

Whebby accepted an invitation to start in the NSPE Cup saying it would be a good test for his colt before he heads to the United States.

Other expected starters include Governors Plate consolation winner Lies The Truth (1:54.4), Governors Plate runner-up Lakota Hall and Porthill Alf, a 1:54.3 winner at Charlottetown this year.

The final day of Atlantic Grand Circuit Week of Sunday features the Frank and Beth Stanfield Memorial for three-year-old pacing fillies.

Organizations: The Little Brown Jug

Geographic location: Nova Scotia, Dartmouth, United States Charlottetown
