CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

With a front-end trip there was no stopping Euchred in Saturday evening’s feature at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The $2,900 race saw Euchred and driver David Dowling stack their competition three-wide around the first turn and make Doctor Royal (Gilles Barrieau), riding a three-race win streak, duck into the three-hole. Euchred then ran the rest of the mile relatively uncontested through fractions of 28.1, 57.4 and 1:27.3 before closing out the mile in 1:57.1.

Adkins Hanover (Corey MacPherson) drafted along for the deuce at the longest odds on the board while Revenant (Adam Merner) was third. Euchred paid $20 to win for owner Kayla Habicht Walker of Inverness, N.S.

Sodwana Bay started off her 2019 season with ease as she ran the gauntlet on top to win the $2,800 fillies and mares open pace on the program for trainer-driver Barrieau and owners Wayne MacRae of Fall River, N.S., and Howmac Farms Ltd., of North Wiltshire. The daughter of No Pan Intended stopped the clock in 1:57.2 over Innocent Kiss (Merner) and Nomatterwhen (Dale Spence).

Marc Campbell had a training and driving double on the program to continue his lead in both categories at the capital oval. Glasgow Gracie was a 2:02.2 victor in Race 1, while Eagle Jolt captured a $1,900 class in 1:59.2 later in the program.
