Crowd at Red Shores

If the crowd that turned out at Charlottetown to watch the Maritime Breeders and the Cecil Ladner Memorial is any indication, Governor’s Plate Week could be very busy.

The 54th running of the Governor’s Plate presented by Summerside Chrysler Dodge takes place next week at the historic Summerside Raceway. Eliminations will be on July 8 with the $30,000 final taking place on July 16.

There’s no shortage of fire power for this year’s edition. Batterup Hanover, Time To Dance, Rotten Ronnie, Screen Test, Beachin Lindy, American Risk, Blood Money and Merito Hanover look to be the top contenders heading into the eliminations. Here’s my top three and one possible sleeper to watch heading into the July classic.
