Raising Richard had eight foes in front of him heading in the back-half of Sunday’s featured trot at Rideau Carleton Raceway, but a strong surge helped propel him to a narrow triumph for trainer John MacMillan.

Starting from Post 8, Raising Richard went to the back of the bus and remained there while Four Starz Speed chopped out first-half fractions of :28.4 and :58.3. Filion made a bold, three-wide move with his charge in the backstretch, and they advanced to be sixth heading into the final quarter of the contest. Raising Richard used a :29.1 closing kick to reach up for the nose decision over Heres The Magic in 1:57.4. Four Starz Speed was a narrowly-beaten third.

Sent off at odds of 13-1, the four-year-old son of Deweycheatumnhowe-Raising The Bar scored the win 2099551 Ontario Inc of Greely and trainer MacMillan of Spencerville, Ont. It was third straight score for the 12-time winner who now boasts a bankroll in excess of $80,000.
