Inverness Raceway wrapped up its 2019 meet of live racing on Sunday afternoon (Oct. 27), as the Nova Scotia oval was the scene of a six-dash card. A $1,150 Winners-Over Pace headlined the program, and the biggest longshot in the tilt was the one that ultimately grabbed all the marbles.

The feature went postward for the last of the card’s six races, and, when all was said and done, it was the Don Beaton-trained and Rodney Gillis-driven Your Raider Boy ($17.00) that hit the wire first after a gritty performance.

The five-year-old gelded son of Cheyenne Rei started from Post 4 and was overland at every call before grinding down the pacesetter to get up for a neck win in 2:01.2. Beaton, of Port Hood, NS, owns Your Raider Boy.

This Old Millie (who was driven by Charles Fraser) had cut the opening quarter (:30.1) and half (1:00.3) before Your Raider Boy, who was still on the outside, nudged ahead and clicked off the three quarters pole in 1:31.2. Your Raider Boy had enough left to hold off the closing Windmeredontmatter (Lewis MacDonell) at the wire. This Old Millie finished a close third.

Beaton was the leading trainer during the meet, as his pupils won 20 races. Raymond MacKinnon, whose barn clicked at a great rate during the meet, finished second with 10 wins. Three trainers – Anthony Beaton, Bernie MacDonald and Lloyd MacLean – each recorded nine wins during the Inverness meet.

Rodney Gillis and Redmond Doucet tied for the top spot amongst drivers, as each reinsman recorded 27 wins during the meet. Andrew MacLean was next in line with 22 victories.
