Yves Tessier trainee Flying Isa N claimed his third-consecutive victory in the $8,100 Preferred Trot at Rideau Carleton Raceway with a neck victory in 1:57.3 on Sunday, Nov. 4.

The 10-year-old gelding by Pegasus Spur got away fourth as Lmc Mass Gem brushed to the top past a :28 opening quarter. Facing no pressure to a :58.4 half, Lmc Mass Gem owned a two-length lead when Flying Isa N angled outside in pursuit of command to three-quarters.

Lmc Mass Gem trotted to three-quarters in 1:27.3 and had no dents on his lead turning into the lane. But Flying Isa N cut into his deficit through the straightaway to snag victory late while holding off third-place finisher Raising Richard rallying from a rail trip.

Owned by Francois Morin, Flying Isa N won his 10th race in 33 starts this season and his 36th from 132 overall, earning $535,951. Stephane Brosseau drove the $6.90 winner.

Canadian Edition upset the $8,100 Preferred Pace with a three-quarter length rail-trip rally at odds of 10-1 in 1:54.3.

Machin A Trick led to a :27.3 first quarter and braced the first-over bid of Stonebridge Beach following a :57.3 half. Race-favourite Doctor Royal tracked cover from second over heading to the backstretch all while Canadian Edition stalked from fifth.

Stonebridge Beach came within a nose of command at the 1:25.4 third quarter but began a gradual retreat into the final turn. Doctor Royal shot three wide and overtook pacesetter Machin A Trick in the lane, but the 1-5 public choice could not withstand the late rush from Canadian Edition and settled for second to the $23.10 winner. Machin A Trick held third.

A seven-year-old gelding by Somebeachsomewhere, Canadian Edition won his eighth race from 37 starts this season and his 30th from 172 overall, earning $194,457. Clarke Steacy sat in the bike for owner-trainer Blake Curran and co-owner Stephen Leblanc.

Guy Gagnon scored a training triple on the Sunday card. He won with Playin For Keeps, popping pocket to win a $4,800 claiming pace by one-and-a-quarter lengths in 1:56.3, Cliff Drummond, pulling pocket to take a $6,000 claiming pace in 1:55.1, and Cobalt Man, going wire to wire to win a $6,900 conditioned pace by one-and-three-quarter lengths in 1:56.
