Summerside , PE - In nothing short of a perfect trip, Czar Seelster was steered to victory by veteran driver Kenny Arsenault in the Governorís Plate final that capped off Governorís Plate week racing at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.
Kenny Arsenault captured his second Governorís Plate final Saturday night in the $25,000 event for trainer Todd Weatherbee and owner Tammy Johnston of Vernon Bridge. Post time favourite Euchred and driver Adam Merner set the early tempo with fractions of 27.1, 55.4 and 1:24.1 while being unchallenged on the front end with Czar Seelster sitting the pocket. Czar Seelster vacated the two-hole for the stretch drive to power past Euchred and capture the 50th edition of the Prince County Classic in 1:53.2. Euchred was second with Mr Irresistible (Driven by Gilles Barrieau) finishing third and defending champion Do Over Hanover (Jason Hughes) fourth.
