Rennie stable rises on afternoon card

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

The winner’s circle was an all too familiar sight for Gilles Barrieau on the second half of the P.E.I. Colt Stakes doubleheader Saturday at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Barrieau trained and driven Red Dirt Boomer delivered in his $6,800 three-year-old pacing colt assignment with a 1:57 victory for owner Daniel Ross of Belfast. Fellow Barrieau-trained Sodwana Bay gave another victory to the Saint John, N.B., reinsman in her $3,620 Atlantic Aged Pacing Mares Series division presented by Standardbred Canada, stopping the clock in 1:57.1. His other driving wins were catch assignments with Ashes To Ashes in 1:57.4 from the Jackie Matheson stable, Forever Paradise in 1:56.4 for trainer Kevin MacLean and Bank Of Dad winning in 1:56.4 for trainer Ambyr Campbell.

Campbell has two wins from her stable on the program as Tobinator won in 1:57.3 with Ken Murphy aboard.

In stakes action, Purple Poet (Kenny Arsenault) opened the card up in his $6,800 colt split with a 1:57 victory. Notorious was a popular winner in another split in 1:58.1 for trainer-driver Marc Campbell while Saulsbrook Lassie won the final colt division in 1:57.2 for driver Adam Merner.

Woodmere Oleksiak found her sixth straight win in a $7,800 three-year-old pacing filly division for the combination of driver David Dowling, trainer Earl Watts and owners Hollis Newson, Windemere Farms, Debbie Denney and Ric McNutt.
The other filly bouts went to Elm Grove Nellie (Dale Spence) and Cheeky Cherry (Clare MacDonald), both in 1:58.1 miles.

Jordies Hope won her $3,620 Atlantic Aged Pacing Mares Series leg with a 1:55.3 win for driver Dowling and trainer Brian Ladner. The $2,900 preferred pace saw Kenny Arsenault cap off a driving triple with Lisburn in a smoldering 1:53.3 trip from his own stable.

Afternoon

The Melissa Rennie stable was red hot on Saturday afternoon for the first part of a P.E.I. Colt Stakes doubleheader at Red Shores at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The capital oval played host to 12 dashes with eight divisions of Canada’s oldest standardbred stake.

Windemere Ryan started the action off in his $7,000 two-year-old pacing colt division with a 1:58.1 victory for driver Adam Merner and trainer Melissa Rennie. High Five Racing of Stanhope holds the ownership papers of the son of Malicious.

The Big Chase gave Rennie and Merner their other P.E.I. Colt Stakes score in 1:57.2 in another rookie colt split for owner JTL Risk Stable of Glace Bay, N.S. Rennie and Merner also found the winner’s circle with Chief Exec Officer after being placed first in overnight action for the triple.

Tobins Rebel (Gilles Barrieau) won the fastest colt division in 1:57.1 while Imalookertoo (Marc Campbell) delivered as the favourite in their $7,000 split.

In two-year-old pacing filly action, Watch Me Dance had the quickest feet as she toured the city track in 1:58 in a $7,300 division. Mark Bradley was in the bike for trainer and co-owner Stephen Quinn and co-owned John Quinn of Charlottetown and Ozzie MacKay of Moncton.

The other $7,300 two-year-old pacing filly divisions were won by Saulsbrook Ocean (Dale Spence) in 1:59.1, Bettorthanbobbi (Bradley) in 1:58.4 and Elm Grove Ocean (Walter Cheverie) in 2:00.1.
