Stallion Rivalry Reignites In Charlottetown

By Nicholas Oakes For Red Shores

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – The battle of the Stallions resumes Saturday evening as Twin B Tuffenuff tries to even the score in the Preferred Pace at Red Shores Racetrack and Casino at the Charlottetown Driving Park.

The capital oval will field 11-dashes starting at 6 P.M. on Saturday evening.

Race 10 is the $3,800 Preferred class with Twin B Tuffenuff the morning line favourite from post 2 with Gilles Barrieau in the bike for trainer Ron Matheson and owner Pat Morris of Charlottetown. The winner of $705,000 is standing his first season at stud in 2024 after racing the winter months in the U.S.

His 2024 P.E.I. debut was a narrow second place finish to stablemate Blood Money, who leaves from post 3 on Saturday. Marc Campbell drives the Matheson trainee for owner Dr. Mitchell Downey as the stallion son of Sweet Lou looks for win number 28 of his career while also being on the roster of the Atlantic Sires Stakes stallion directory.

Burn Out Hanover (To be driven by Brady Sweet) has post 1 after an open-length victory in his latest start.

Rollwithhottytoddy (Myles Heffernan Sr. ) was the dominant pacer in Charlottetown in January and has post 4 Saturday while Spectrum Seelster (David Dowling) has post 5 after a third-place finish at this level last week.

The Post Time Picks like Twin B Tuffenuff.

“Twin B Tuffenuff was driven conservatively from an outside post in his spring meet debut and it cost him the win. He has the inside edge this week with post two so I’m betting that Barrieau points him to the front and they lead gate-to-wire.”

Ashes To Ashes (Barrieau) is favoured in the race 11 finale, which also features the Super Hi-5. Matheson trains the 10-year-old son of Driven To Win who leaves from post 4 this week. His top rivals are post 1 entry Leavin Bruises (Damian MacLellan) and Afair Somewhere (Adam Merner).
