Bet The House remains perfect at Red Shores Summerside this year after winning the Sunday feature in 1:59 as the LOTTO 649 Red Cup Classic weekend moved to Prince County oval. The day was filled with promotions and trackside presentations for all the winners.
Jason Hughes hustled the Blaine McKenna trainee off the gate to the lead and tapped the breaks en route to a :30.1 opening panel and half at a mild 1:01 before stepping out the next panel at 1:30.2. The six-year-old son of Bettors Delight captured his third win in a row at Summerside. Bakardi Arti was second while Roccos Cavallo finished third. McKenna co-owns Bet The House with Gary Arsenault of Miscouche, P.E.I.
The card was marred by an accident in race six when Unstoppable Speed, with Corey MacPherson, got tangled up with Paphos and driver Norris Rogers. Unstoppable Speed put this foot through the wheel disc of Paphos sending driver Norris Rogers to the track. The Summerside native walked away from the spill and remained in action. Horses and drivers were not injured.
