Rideau Carleton’s Sunday, July 3 card was highlighted by a pair of $6,650 Winners-Over Not Listed Preferred events, one for each gait.

Unabating swept to the lead at three quarters to then advance to a 1:57.2 win in the Winners Over Trot.

With Rocky Boy setting splits of :28.4 and :59.4, Unabating moved first over before the half, towing Maximuscle second over. Rocky Boy lost the lead into the final turn, but fought off Maximuscle to take second.

Unabating, paying $7.50, is an eight-year-old Broadway Hall gelding out of the Malabar Man mare Malabar Memories. He is owned by Catheline Pelletier, trained by Gerard Demers, and was driven to victory by Guy Gagnon.

Meersburg and trainer-driver Ted McDonald shot by rivals to win the Winners Over Pace in 1:55 over Officially Rusty and pacesetter Mr Massimo. Sitting off fractions of :27.4, :58, and 1:26, Meersburg rallied with Officially Rusty past Mr Massimo, getting a half-length advantage in the final strides.

Returning $16.80, Meersburg is a five-year-old gelding by Sand Shooter out of the Jennas Beach Boy mare Belize. He’s owned by Julie Ferguson.
