SUMMERSIDE, PE – Harness racing driver Adam Merner and Euchred have proven to be a force to be reckoned with on the Invitational scene this season and that duo reunited for another top end victory on Monday night during the rescheduled program at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

The Terry Gallant trained Euchred laid third on the pylons for the first portion of the $4,000 Invitational Pace as race favourite Czar Seelster (Driven by Kenny Arsenault) carved out fractions of 28.2 and 57.2. Euchred then made his first over bid through the three-quarters in 1:27 then capitalized on a late break in stride by the front end oriented Czar Seelster during the stretch drive.

The margin of victory for Euchred would be settled at two-lengths with a clocking of 1:55.1. Czar Seelster was second followed by Mr Irresistible (Corey MacPherson) in third.

Driver David Dowling scored four wins on the Monday program including win number 1,000 of his career. The Warren Grove reinsman scored win number 999 of his lifetime with Windemere Nick for trainer Earl Watts of Hampshire with a 2:00.1 score.

The milestone was hit in his second win of the night in race 7 as Flash In The Pang demolished his opposition in 1:57 by 13-lengths for trainer Pat Murphy. Dowling would go on to also visit the winner’s circle with his own Slide Guitar in a 1:56.2 score and Heart And Guts in 1:57.1 for Shirlene O’Brien of Burton, PE.

Racing at Red Shores Summerside will take a hiatus until Wednesday, August 22, as the focus shifts to Red Shores Charlottetown for Old Home Week racing culminating in the 59th running of The Guardian Gold Cup and Saucer on August 18. For more information go to www.Redshores.ca.
