CHARLOTTETOWN, PE - Euchred took control of the lead from the start and beat back his preferred harness racing foes Sunday afternoon at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

Gilles Barrieau was the hot driver of the day and Euchred did not let him down as the son of Shadow Play left well off the gate to make the lead in the $2,900 preferred pace and proceed through splits of 28.3, 57.2 and 1:26.2. Woodmere Ideal Art (Driven by Jason Hughes) took a run at Euchred in the final quarter but had to settle for second while race favourite Rose Run Quest (Marc Campbell) had too much ground to make up and finished third in the 1:55.2 mile. Walter Walker trains Euchred for owner Kayla Habicht Walker of Inverness, N.S.

Barrieau made four trips to the winner's circle on the 13-dash card. The New Brunswick pilot started the action off winning with Selkirk Echo in 2:00.2 for trainer Jackie Matheson of Charlottetown, and that duo teamed up later on the card to win with Clare Hall Hanover in an open-length 1:59.3 score.

Barrieau's other win was in a $1,750 trot class as Daisy River overcame an early break in stride to win in 2:04.1 for trainer William Lanigan of Montague.
