CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – A perfect ride was all it took for Simon Said to defeat Prince Edward Island's top pacers Saturday at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The Joey Squires-trained pacer rewarded his backers with $28.80 for a $2 win ticket as he overpowered pacesetter Adkins Hanover (Corey MacPherson) in deep stretch. Mark Bradley engineered the two-hole ride and converted in into a trip to the winner's circle in the $2,400 preferred pace in 1:56.1. Race favourite Adkins Hanover was second with The Big Bite (Walter Cheverie) completing the $147.30 triactor ticket.

Simon Said is co-owned by Squires with partners Jack MacGillivray of Charlottetown and Albert MacGillivray of Middle Sackville, N.S.

Prettyndangerous prevailed in the $2,250 open mares pace for driver Adam Merner and trainer Bo Ford, who co-owns with Arnold Myers of Charlottetown. The daughter of Armbro Deuce defeated Good Luck Kathy (Jason Hughes) with Hurricane Hill (Cheverie) third.

The $1,850 open trot was a mild upset for Holy Molie Maggie and driver MacPherson in 2:01.4. The Jeff Holmes-trainee powered past race favourite Freddie (Marc Campbell) with Wedgewood (Gary Chappell) third.

Charlottetown leading driver Campbell had three wins on the 14-dash program, including Woodmere Articblue in 1:59.1 and Charlottes Western in 2:00.1 from his own stable along with the Jack Arsenault-trained American Captain in 2:00.1.

Ken Murphy also had a driving triple with Elm Grove Kaptain in 2:02.1 for trainer Molly Murphy, Fly With Max in 2:00.3 for trainer Bradley, and My Lucky Killean in 1:59.4 from the Clifford Murphy stable.

Hughes and Gilles Barrieau both had driving doubles.
