Charlottetown, PE - Forever Paradise may not of had the same season he did in 2015 but that didn't matter in the New Years Eve harness racing feature at Red Shores Charlottetown.

The six-year-old maritime bred by Western Paradise used a ground saving journey for 'The Tiger' Corey MacPherson to slay Drivingthedragon's win streak in 1:57.2.

The New Zealand invader Drivingthedragon N was parked out to the quarter in :28.1 before clearing to the lead and laying down fractions of :58.2 and 1:28.3 putting away a first over attacker in Rash B Havior but didn't have enough to fend of the patented 1/8 of a mile spirt of Forever Paradise.

Macpherson who enjoyed a careee year in 2016 closed it out with a driving triple. Reg MacPherson along with Aaron and David MacKenzie own the Kevin Maclean trainee who picked up his 48th lifetime victory, just hours shy from turning seven.

Marc Campbell crushed his previous single season dash title at Red Shores in 2016 topping up with a driving hattrick on the night to set the new plateau at 144.

The three victories gave him the most wins in a maritime season for 2016 with 213.

Kenny Arsenault enjoyed a driving and training double with Howmacs Pride and American Captain.''
