Life­time best

Sin­ners In Heaven romps in Red Shores fea­ture

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - Com­piled by Bo Ford for Red Shores

Sin­ners In Heaven in line to Terry Gallant used a three-wide back-stretch burst to romp in the Thurs­day night fea­ture at Red Shores at the Char­lot­te­town Driv­ing Park.

A front-end bat­tle head­ing to the quar­ter be­tween Lead­ing Cam­di­date and Mi­nor Wis­dom set up the big frac­tions (27.3, 56.4, 1:27.1) Sin­ners In Heaven needed to cap­ture a five-and-ahalf length vic­tory in a life­time best 1:56.2.

The five-year-old son of Ar­tic­u­la­tor is owned by River Val­ley Man­age­ment, Lana Mur­phy and Win­de­mere Farms while Earl Watts han­dles the train­ing du­ties. The win gave Gallant his sec­ond vic­tory on the card. He scored in the evening opener with Mr Macleod.

While the big boys were in Bi­ble Hill, N.S., for stakes ac­tion, Ron­nie Mathe­son stole the show in Char­lot­te­town, re­turn­ing three win­ners back to the win­ner’s cir­cle. He kicked off his hat trick with Wa­ter hook for owner Bruce Wood, be­fore pick­ing up back-to-back vic­to­ries from Post 8 with a pair of Jackie Mathe­son-trainees, Star cas­tic in 1:57.2 and Hornswog­gle in 1:59.

Gary Chap­pell also en­joyed two trips back to the win­ner’s en­clo­sure, first with Lyn­dale Jenn, and then with the free­legged Shock The Rock.

Rac­ing re­turns to Char­lot­te­town on Satur­day with a 6 p.m. start.
