Blanket Finish to Forever Paradise
Charlottetown , PE – Forever Paradise returned to his winning way on Saturday night at Red Shores Charlottetown taking the $2,200 feature.
Mike McGuigan pointed the post time favorite to the lead for trainer Kevin Maclean, laying down fractions of :28.3,:58.1 and 1:27 before laying down a closing quarter of :28.4, stopping the clock in 1:55.4. Reg MacPherson, David and Aaron Mackenzie share ownership of the 6-year-old Western Paradise gelding.
It was a stretch drive the McGuigan family won't soon forget, Mike's father Len McGuigan picked up the catch driving call on long shot All Turain and as they reach the top of the stretch the teacher Len tipped All Turain out of the three hole but didn't have enough to take the student Mike to school.
McGuigan picked up a driving double on the card winning with his own trainee Fightmaster in the 5th race.
Trainer Vaughn Doyle had the early daily double on the card driving Scoot Out Of Here to a race 1 victory before handing the lines over to Marc Campbell who completed the double with Ideal Lifestyle. Doyle would rack up a driving double on the card winning with Three Truths later on the card.
Campbell had a driving triple on the card winning with Zero Rate and his own trainees the King of the Rock and Inspired Art in the evening finale.
The total handle was $24,431
