Ken Mur­phy and Wal­ter Chev­erie are off to strong starts in the Gover­nor’s Plate Week of har­ness rac­ing.

Mur­phy and Chev­erie each recorded driv­ing hat tricks on Sun­day af­ter­noon’s open­ing card at Red Shores at Sum­mer­side Race­way.

One of Chev­erie’s vic­to­ries came in one of two $2,400 open mares paces on the 12dash pro­gram. Chev­erie drove Ram­blinglily to a 1:55.1 win in Race 5, and Adam Merner steered Pret­tyn­dan­ger­ous to a new race-win record of 1:54.4 mile in Race 7.

Trainer Al­lan Jones of Riverview, N.B., and Nor­mand Leger of She­diac, N.B., own Ram­blinglily, a seven-year-old bay mare by Ar­tic­u­la­tor-Crafty Jewel-Drop Off.

Shad­ows Mys­tery was sec­ond, and Scirocco Mi­ley Kay fin­ished third. Trainer Bo Ford and Arnold My­ers of Char­lot­te­town own Pret­tyn­dan­ger­ous.

Wood­mere Ar­ticblue was sec­ond while Good Luck Kathy came third af­ter frac­tions of 28.1, 56.4 and 1:26.1.

There is no har­ness rac­ing tonight in Sum­mer­side. The next live card is Tues­day at 7 p.m. The At­lantic Sires Stakes for two- and three-year-old trot­ters will be fea­tured.
