CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Euchred took control of the lead from the start and beat back his preferred harness racing foes Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. Gilles Barrieau was the hot driver of the day and Euchred did not let him down as the son of Shadow Play left well off the gate to make the lead in the $2,900 preferred pace and proceed through splits of 28.3, 57.2 and 1:26.2. Woodmere Ideal Art (Driven by Jason Hughes) took a run at Euchred in the final quarter but had to settle for second while race favourite Rose Run Quest (Marc Campbell) had too much ground to make up and finished third in the 1:55.2 mile. Walter Walker trains Euchred for owner Kayla Habicht Walker of Inverness, N.S. Barrieau made four trips to the winner's circle on the 13-dash card. The New Brunswick pilot started the action off winning with Selkirk Echo in 2:00.2 for trainer Jackie Matheson of Charlottetown, and that duo teamed up later on the card to win with Clare Hall Hanover in an open-length 1:59.3 score. Barrieau's other win was in a $1,750 trot class as Daisy River overcame an early break in stride to win in 2:04.1 for trainer William Lanigan of Montague.

Collective Wisdom earns top billing in the event from post 6 with Barrieau in the bike for owner Woodmere Farms of Marshfield and trainer Jackie Matheson.

Dancers Pass has been the model of consistency lately and gets post 2 this week for driver Dowling and trainer Philip Kelly, while fellow Matheson trained The Time To Win (Driven by Ron Matheson) leaves from post 7. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will take the advantage of post position as he puts Dancers Pass on top. "Dancers Pass has got the versatility to handle any racing style and from this favourable post the trip of her choosing could be in the cards," MacIsaac said. "She's a potential sleeper." Also in the field are Mrs Dragonfire (MacPherson), Rocknrols Image (Hughes), Arc Light (Marc Campbell), Imagine Speed (Bradley) and Julep Hanover (Wade Myers). For more information go to the newly redesigned Redshores.ca. Euchred Returns To Red Shores CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The last time they met Rose Run Quest easily prevailed but Euchred will come off a nearly month long break as he takes another crack at his top foe in the featured event Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 13-dash card has a 12:30 P.M. first race post time with the $2,900 preferred pace hitting the track in the finale. Rose Run Quest has a four-race win streak on the line but has been assigned post 7 in the field for trainer-driver Marc Campbell and owner Blair Hansen of Charlottetown. The seven-year-old son of If I Can Dream has 12 victories this season from 22 starts and has only missed the top-three four times in 2019. Euchred has not seen action since Oct. 19 and moves back into the Walter Walker stable for owner Kayla Habicht-Walker of Inverness. Gilles Barrieau gets the catch driving call behind the 51-time winner. Nogreatmischief won the top class last week but will have to work out a trip from post 6 on Sunday for trainer-driver Walter Cheverie. Race analyst Les MacIsaac admits going against Rose Run Quest for the winning position is far from a safe play but he likes a rejuvenated Euchred on top of his tickets. "With Euchred's gate speed he should be able to secure an uncontested lead and with the dominant horse in this class assigned the outside post, this guy is a suitable option if you're trying to get the heavy favourite beat," MacIsaac said. Rounding out the field are Mick Dundee (Driven by Don MacNeill), JJ Powerball (Myles Heffernan Sr.), Screen Test (Corey MacPherson) and Woodmere Ideal Art (Jason Hughes). After an unsuccessful run at the top class last week at Red Shores, Well Did will move into the back-up class on Sunday afternoon and the top Truro Raceway pacer gets rail control in the $2,500 event. Paul Langille of Lower Onslow, N.S., owns, trains and drives the Well Said pacer, who knocked off the top class at Truro Raceway in Bible Hill, N.S., two starts in-a-row before competing at Red Shores last week in the preferred. Creepin (David Dowling) is the morning line favourite in the class from post 2 while veteran pacer Eagle Jolt (Campbell) is another top entrant from post 5.

Maritime champion Arc Light will leave from post 5 for trainer-driver Marc Campbell while last week's top class winner, Imagine Speed, will leave from post 8.

Nogreatmischief has rail control for trainer-driver Walter Cheverie after having not seen the pylons behind the starting gate since Aug. 4. Race analyst Les MacIsaac will side with Woodmere Ideal Art as his top pick. "Woodmere Ideal Art has been a top three finisher in 75 per cent of his starts the past two years, 2018 on the tough stakes circuit and this year against the best free for allers on the east coast," MacIsaac said. "It will take a big effort from one of his rivals to knock him off." Also in the preferred field are Mick Dundee (Driven by Don MacNeill), Varadero Hanover (Ken Murphy), Rockin Indy (David Dowling), Burn Out Hanover (Gilles Barrieau) and JJ Powerball (Adam Merner). The Lester Chappell Memorial pace is carded as race 2 of the program for a $1,700 purse.

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - The final regularly scheduled harness racing evening program of the 2019 calendar goes postward this Thursday and Collective Wisdom will look to deliver in her last seasonal race under the lights at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park. The 12-dash Thursday card has a 6:30 P.M. post time and will be the final scheduled evening card of the meeting as action shifts to a Saturday-Sunday schedule with afternoon post times the following week. Collective Wisdom is the favourite in the race 11 top pace for a $2,200 purse with Gilles Barrieau back in the bike for trainer Jackie Matheson and owner Woodmere Farms of Marshfield. The six-year-old daughter of American Ideal was a front end victor in her latest start in 1:58.1 and climbs up a class for this week but her competition still falls short of the Open Mares she has been banging heads with all season. Innocent Kiss has post 3 in the field fresh off an eight-length romp in her latest for driver Adam Merner and trainer Chris Davies. Post 5 belongs to Dancers Pass (Driven by David Dowling) who scored a large upset in her last start while racing against the boys at 14-1 odds. Race analyst Les MacIsaac takes Collective Wisdom for the top spot. "Collective Wisdom gets a post that should allow her to exploit that gate speed and get spotted on the lead or at the very least in position to sit and stalk all the way," MacIsaac said. "She'll be hard to deny." Also in the field are Killean Finale (Ken Murphy), Bettim Vicky (Marc Campbell) and Drivingthedragon N (Jason Hughes). The $2,250 Open Trot hits the track in race 7 with Freddie assigned the outside as he looks for win number 11 of the season in his 20th start this year for trainer-driver Campbell and owner Three Wisemen Stable of Kingston. Other top entries in the Open Trot include Summit City Nate (Barrieau) from post 1 and Majian Tango (Jim Ripley) from post 3. Race 4 is the Lowther Refrigeration Ltd., pace with Narragansett favoured off the rail in the $1,400 class for driver Hughes and owner-trainer Ashley Gamester of Hunter River. The veteran son of Rocknroll Hanover will look for his first top three finish of the season after just returning to racing in September.

SUMMERSIDE, PE - Brief Interlude was sent to the lead and paced away from all challengers as her harness racing driver Zach Conway scored a career milestone with his first lifetime win Sunday afternoon at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway. The 19-year-old Bonshaw driver's first lifetime win had been eluding him for the Summer but Brief Interlude came to play Sunday in the fourth race of afternoon. Conway and Brief Interlude left well from post 2 to position the mare on the lead and lay down splits of 29.1, 59.3, and 1:29.4 before scoring by two-length in 2:00.3. The five-year-old Brandons Cowboy mare is owned and trained by Zach's father, Paul Conway of Bonshaw. The Wade Sorrie stable was razor sharp as they swept the top two classes on the day. JJ Powerball won the $2,600 top class by a length in line to Jason Hughes in 1:57 while defeating race favourite and pacesetter Nogreatmischief (Driven by Walter Cheverie). Third place went to Varadero Hanover (Ken Murphy). A four-year-old son of Image Of Dawn, JJ Powerball is owned by Tammy Collings of Hazel Brook along with Austin Sorrie of Ontario. Pictonian Storm won the back-up class for owner Collings and trainer Sorrie as Murphy subbed in as driver in the $2,200 event rallying from last to score in 1:58.2 over Twice As Bright (David Dowling) and Painted Desert (Corey MacPherson). Trainer Jaycob Sweet had a double on the program as Badlands Giovanna circled the field in a tight finish in race 2 in 2:01.2 for driver Hughes and Shiftyn Georgie upset later in the program for driver Dale Spence in 1:57.4. Dowling made three trips to the winner's circle to continue his reign as leading driver in Prince County. The Warren Grove driver found the wire first with Oh No (2:00.3) for trainer Colleen Chappell of Breadalbane, Phil Dorleans in 1:58.3 for Donald Milligan of Tyne Valley and Cal Hanover (2:01.2) from the Earl Watts stable of Hampshire.
