Wil­low War­rior, Veron­i­caver­mil­lion suf­fered scrapes and bruises

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

A scary mo­ment oc­curred in Race 12 of Satur­day night’s 13dash card at Red Shores at Summerside Race­way.

As the field in the $8,250 Gover­nor’s Plate open mares’ fi­nal went be­hind the tote board for the sec­ond time, the Mark Bradley-driven Wil­low War­rior lost his foot­ing and fell to the ground. Veron­i­caver­mil­lion, with Michael McGuigan in the bike, also was in­volved af­ter Wil­low War­rior went down.

Bradley was taken to hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance for what Red Shores’ Lee Drake said was “pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sures” and to have his knee checked out while McGuigan was checked out at the track.

Drake an­nounced to the crowd both mares were fine, but suf­fered some “scrapes and bruises.”

Gilles Bar­rieau steered the Mathe­son-trained Gen­eral Luck­ypercy to the race’s vic­tory in 1:57.3 for owner Jodi Lynn Mathe­son.

It was one of five vic­to­ries on the night for Bar­rieau, who was pre­sented with the Basil Whe­lan Me­mo­rial Award for top driver of Gover­nor’s Plate Week. Bar­rieau had 18 wins dur­ing the sev­en­card meet. Marc Camp­bell was sec­ond with 13.

Osprey Im­pact set a new track trot­ting record for mares in the An­drew Perry Me­mo­rial Trot. Mike Steven­son drove the fouryear-old to a 1:59.2 trip for owner and trainer Paul Larrabee of Belle River.

Marc Camp­bell drove Mach It Big to a 1:56.4 win in the $5,000 Gover­nor’s Plate con­so­la­tion in Race 11. Michael Lus­tic of Cornwall owns the seven-year-old bay horse.
