Rideau Feature To 'Bestofbest'

Published: October 8, 2017 10:35 pm EDT

Following a patient pocket trip, Bestofbest Hanover made his move in the stretch and proved to be the best in this week's $8,550 Winners Over Handicap Pace featured on Sunday night (October 8) at Rideau Carleton Raceway.

Stonebridge Beach set the pace (:26.4, :56, 1:24.1) and remained clear on the lead turning for home, but Bestofbest Hanover shot through the passing lane to score the victory in 1:53.4 by one and a quarter lengths. Print Media edged out Stonebridge Beach off a three-hole trip in the close race for place.

Bestofbest Hanover paid $4.50 to win as the 6-5 betting favourite.

The nine-year-old son of Western Hanover, who is owned, trained and driven by Melanie Plourde, is a four-time winner this year and boasts 29 victories overall with more than $645,000 in earnings.
