SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – Euchred capped off David Dowling’s dominant day in invitational action Sunday afternoon at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

Sent to the lead from the start in the $3,500 invitational pace, Euchred felt no serious challenges through splits of 27.2, 56.1 and 1:24.4 before putting the finishes touches on a 1:54 victory. Sent off by the wagering public as third choice, Euchred defeated Czar Seelster (Kenny Arsenault) at the wire while race favourite Rose Run Quest (Marc Campbell) was third.

Euchred is trained by Terry Gallant for owner Kayla Habicht Walker of Inverness, N.S.
