CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Sunday afternoon was a day of harness racing celebrations all around for the Ultimate Stable of New Brunswick at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Woodmere Ideal Art upset the heavily favoured Rose Run Quest in the $3,000 featured pace while new trainer Dawn Hubbard had the first win of her career with Ultimatelyhandsome, with both horses owned by the Ultimate Stable of Greater Lakeburn, N.B.

In the afternoon featured preferred pace, chalk favourite Rose Run Quest (Driven by Marc Campbell) left off the gate to command the front and go through fractions of 28.3 and 58 with Woodmere Ideal Art (Jason Hughes) sitting on his back in the two-hole.

Creepin (David Dowling) made a first over attack on Rose Run Quest at the three-quarters of 1:28.1 but it was Woodmere Ideal Art who prevailed up the passing lane in the stretch drive in 1:57.1. Rose Run Quest was second while Burn Out Hanover (Gilles Barrieau) was third. Sifroi Melanson trains the winning horse.

Ultimatelyhandsome handed Hubbard her first win as a conditioner in race 9 of the program also with Hughes in the bike, stopping the clock in 1:58.

Knockout Punch won his third straight in the Marvyn Webster stable as the Westwardho Hanover three-year-old put together a 2:01 victory for owner Valleygrove Farms of Kensington as the first part of a David Dowling driving triple. Dowling also won with Junebugs Baby in 2:003 for trainer Chris MacKay of French River and with newcomer Lil Beau Duke in 2:00.1 from the Elton Millar stable of Tyne Valley.
