Mr Irresistible Was Untouchable
Charlottetown , PE -Mr Irresistible wasted no time making his mark on the East Coast as the harness racing season opened up at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
The Jennifer Trainer conditioned horse was a two-length winner in 1:55.3 in the Saturday evening $2,400 preferred pace with Jason Hughes at the lines for owner Daniel Birt of Stratford. Mr Irresistible had been racing the Ontario circuit before relocating East and used a first over move to mow down his Charlottetown rivals. Adkins Hanover (Corey MacPherson) was second with Junebugs Baby (Greg Bailey) third.
Simon Said captured the back-up pace in 1:59.4 as his trainer and co-owner Joey Squires celebrated a birthday. The pacer prevailed in line to Adam Merner over newcomers Give Em Heck (Colin Sheppard) and Mybestolxfriendray (Marc Campbell) to win the $2,100 event. Simon Said is owned by Squires, Jack Macgillivray of Charlottetown and Albert Macgillivray of Nova Scotia.
It was Merner's second victory of the night after winning with Jinglewriter in 1:59.4 for owner Alex MacPhee of Clyde River. Campbell had two driving wins on the card as he scored with Hickory Chumley from his own stable in 2:00.1 and Instant Shadow in 1:58.2 for the Ultimate Stable of New Brunswick.
Live racing continues next Saturday evening at Red Shores Charlottetown.
