Pugwash horse owner Paul Gray has the fastest record horse over a half-mile track in Saturday nights $16,000 final of the Governors Plate at Summerside Raceway, but St Pete Star will have to overcome the outside Post 7 and world champion free-legged stallion Astronomical to capture the 40th running of this signature event.

After posting back-to-back second-place finishes to Astronomical at Charlottetown and Fredericton, St. Pete Star finished fourth to Outlawpositivecharg in last Mondays Plate trial with his own charted line of 1:55.3. Grays pacer had to come from off the pace to gain a berth in the final.

Four-year-old St Pete Star has a 1:52.3 record on a half-mile track, taken last year at Freehold Raceway in New Jersey. Gray acquired the pacer earlier this year.

Astronomical goes into the race with the rail and a six-win streak.
