Things didn’t start out very well for Canbec Fridolin in the Thursday evening trotting feature at Sulky Quebec, but the gelding righted the ship when it counted.

The four-year-old son of Cherry Hills made his way to the half mile oval after competing at Mohawk Racetrack in recent weeks, and the Sulky Quebec clearly liked what they saw in the trotter based on his 2-5 closing odds.

Canbec Fridolin, however, gave his backers a scare when he rolled into a break shortly after getting away from the starting gate. Driver Jocelyn Gendron quickly gathered up the Jean Tourigny trainee, who redeemed himself with a top notch comeback. In fact, he made a three-wide move on the way to the three-quarter pole and he simply trotted away from the competition en route to winning by more that six lengths in a time of 2:00.1 La Ponpadour was second best and Caramba Dream rounded out the top three.

The victory was the ninth of the season in 25 tries for the career winner of $118,772, who is owned by Tourmana Inc. and Sylvain Ricard of Quebec and Lapharmaciekedgwick Inc. of New Brunswick.
