Woodmere Ideal Art Delivers In Red Shores Feature

By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

SUMMERSIDE, PE – Getting all the respect of chalk favourite, Woodmere Ideal Art cruised through every fraction on his way to victory in the Sunday afternoon feature at Red Shores at the Summerside Raceway.

Norris Rogers sent the heavily favoured Woodmere Ideal Art sharply off the wings from post 4 and led through fractions of 28, 57 and 1:26 before fighting off a late challenge from Heart And Soul (Mark Bradley) to win by half-a-length in 1:55.3. Third went to Soccer Hanover (Adam Merner). Owned by the Ultimate Stable of New Brunswick, Sifroi Melanson trains the winning son of Articulator.

Ken Murphy was the hottest reinsman of the day with five trips to the Prince County winner’s circle on the 10-dash card. The first of the Harrington driver’s quintet was in the opener with a maiden breaking score for Sweet Silvia in 2:00.4 for trainer Frank Hansen. The Eric Doucette trained Rymar Jimbo was Murphy’s next win in 1:59 followed by a win with Cinder Angelina in 2:00 from the Jaycob Sweet barn in race 5. Race 6 saw Murphy win with Dividend Day in 2:00.1 for trainer Fred Paynter while the afternoon finale was a Murphy score of 1:57.4 aboard Pictonian Storm for trainer Wade Sorrie.
