Rose Run Quest Wires Preferred Pace

By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Rose Run Quest capped off a driving quadruple for Gilles Barrieau on Harness The Hope night Saturday at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Barrieau hustled his trainee to the lead in the $3,150 preferred pace and lead through every call to a 1:54.1 victory for owner Blair Hansen of Charlottetown. Stablemate The Rev (Driven by Dale Spence) closed hard to fall a head short in second but was subsequently placed fifth for interference in the stretch drive. Woodmere Ideal Art (Brodie MacPhee) was elevated to second with Simple Kinda Man (Jason Hughes) completing the triactor.

Barrieau teamed up with trainer Ron Matheson earlier on the card to win with Selkirk Echo in 1:58.3 and Ashes To Ashes in 1:55.3. Spack Jarrow got up the passing lane for a 1:56.1 victory in race 6 for Barrieau and trainer Raymond White.

Adam Merner had a driving triple on the program with Woodmere Beachline (2:00.4) for trainer Marc Campbell and with the Ron Gass trained duo of Diamond Call (1:55.1) and Hemingway (1:56.3).

The final race of the evening saw the biggest upset of the night as Brandons Glory won the $2,800 event in 1:55.3 at 22-1 odds from the MacKenzie MacInnis stable of Tyne Valley.
