Driver Scott Young worked a pocket ride for Pro Beach and shot the five-year-old Somebeachsomewhere gelding through the open stretch to claim a narrow victory in the $8,500 Horses and Geldings Preferred 3 Pace at Georgian Downs on Tuesday (June 9).

Off the 4-5 favourite, Pro Beach stalked pacesetter Walter Mitty through fractions of :27.4, :58 and 1:26.3. Midway through the mile Officer Jones, racing seventh, angled first over and advanced towards Walter Mitty to challenge for the lead into the final turn. However Officer Jones stalled turning into the stretch while Pro Beach readied for an inside charge. Through the stretch Pro Beach slid closer to the front before hitting the finish first by a neck in a 1:54.3 mile over Walter Mitty and Trident Seelster, who finished third.

Trained by Richard Moreau for owners Sylvain Descheneaux, Gaar Racing Stables and Gaston Bibeau, Pro Beach won his second race from 10 starts this season and his seventh from 61 overall, earning $166,274. He paid $3.80 to win.
