By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Advancing first-over in the final panel Southwind Ion drew clear to a seven-length victory in the featured pace Thursday evening at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

David Dowling was in the race bike as he doubled up trainer Jennifer Doyle on the program with a 1:55.1 score behind Southwind Ion at 8-1 odds. The pacesetter in the $2,300 event was Temagami Seelster (Driven by Brodie MacPhee), riding a five-race win streak, but the filly yielded to Southwind Ion at the three-quarters of 1:26.4 before interfering on the rest of the field. Filly Forty Seven (Marc Campbell) was second while Better Be In Love (Jason Hughes) completed the $186.60 triactor. Doyle shares ownership of Southwind Ion with Danny Birt of Earnscliffe.

Dowling and Doyle also saw a victory in a trot event in race 6 as Glider Man won in 1:59.2.

Barrieau scored four wins on the Thursday claiming the opening dash with Ill Tell Me Ma (1:57.1) for Scott Dunn of Montague, followed by a 1:57.1 win with JJ Gracie and a trotting victory with Cheeky Little Mix (1:58.4), both from his own stable. He bagged win number four in the evening finale as Much Adoo (1:57.2) prevailed as the favourite from the Ron Matheson stable of Charlottetown.

MacPherson had a driving hat trick on the card winning with Dreas Good Powow (1:58.1) for Joe MacDonald of Breadalbane, Tobins Angel (1:59.4) from the Charlottetown based Mike McGuigan stable and with Elm Grove Ladyluck (1:57.3) for trainer Jonah Moase of Warren Grove.
