The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES -

David Gaudet’s team of Jack and Bud was the heav­i­est team in the Prince County Ex­hi­bi­tion’s Horse Pull on Fri­day and they had the heav­i­est pull.

Jack and Bud, weigh­ing in at 4,030, pulled the 9,250-pound drag – the re­quired dis­tance for the win.

They edged out the Lloyd Arse­nault team of Dewey and Buck whose at­tempt at 9,250 pounds came up just short, mov­ing the drag 11 feet, three inches.

That was two feet fur­ther than the dis­tance Odie and Chief moved the drag for team­ster Merle Ram­say.

The fourth-place team in the heavy di­vi­sion, Jack and Tom, owned by Ger­ald Tay­lor bowed out at 8,750 and Ralph Bernard’s team of Rex and Suzie fin­ished at 8,250 pounds.

Bren­ton Poirier’s team of Rob and Jeb won the medium di­vi­sion with a good pull at 7,250 pounds, beat­ing out Lee Knox’s team of Ace and Co­nan who were un­suc­cess­ful at that weight.

The heav­i­est weight at­tempted in the light di­vi­sion was 6,750 pounds, and Ricky Perry’s en­try of Toby and Guy got the nod with a dis­tance moved of seven inches. That was an inch and a half fur­ther than what Nip­per and Ge­orge moved the weight for team­ster Joey Dewtie.

Sally and Queen placed third in the light di­vi­sion for owner Au­bin Doucette, a par­tial pull at 6,250 pounds.
