The Friday evening program at Northlands Park belonged to horseman Gerry Hudon, who sent out three winners from his own outfit and tacked on a couple of catch-driving scores to bring his daily win total to five at the Alberta oval.

Hudon, who was one of three candidates in the O’Brien Award of Horsemanship category in 2009, clicked with KG Camelot in the opener. The three-year-old son of Allamerican Merlin was sent off as the 1-5 favourite, and the gelding didn’t disappoint his backers en route to posting the 1:56.3 victory. Hudon’s next win, however, was a triumph in Race 5 with the Lance Ward-trained Red Star Cowgirl. The nine-year-old Storm Compensation miss won by more than three lengths in 1:57.1.

Shes A Jewel took the very next race for Hudon, thus completing his driving hat trick and the training double. The six-year-old Allamerican Ingot mare led every step of the way en route to posting the half-length tally in 1:57.2. He and trainer Lance Ward also prevailed with Bandit On The Run in 1:55.3. The four-year-old son of Marlow Hanover delivered on a 2-1 pari-mutuel promise to his backers.

Hudon wrapped up his training hat trick and completed his five-win performance in the racebike thanks to a 1:54.3 score with Timberline Court. The five-year-old son of With Held, who is owned by Lynn Kowalevsky of Airdrie and Hudon of Edmonton, AB, took his $12,000 assignment in coast-to-coast fashion. Coupled in the wagering and sent off as the even-money choice, Timberline Court notched his third win of the campaign in the process. The 18-time winner has stashed away more than $239,000 in his career.
