Dresden Raceway wrapped up its 2014 racing season Monday afternoon, the card finished a with a bang thanks to Kendal Gustav’s front-stepping score in the $9,000 Shelly Goudreau Memorial Pace.

The five-year-old son of Life Sign-City Of Dreams got away second from the rail, but driver Lorne House had him on the move in the second quarter. Kendal Gustav brushed to the top and proceeded to lay down middle panels of :57.1 and 1:27 before powering home in :29.4 to win by a half-length margin in 1:56.4. J M Jet Set was a game runner-up, while race favourite Leafs And Wings rallied to finish third despite being parked every step of the mile.

Trainer Scott McNiven owns the gelding with Tom Brodhurst of London and Shirley Griffin of St. Thomas, Ontario. It was the eighth win of the year – and the 25th to date – for the career winner of $165,835.

Schrader Hanover captured the $7,000 Preferred Handicap Trot for the tandem of driver Rob Sparling, Jr. and trainer Karl MacNaughton. The seven-year-old son of Ken Warkentin-Southern Drawl was on the lead at every call through fractions of :29.4, 1:00.2 and 1:30.3, and he used a :28.4 kicker to win by 5-1/4 lengths over Ill Tell you What in 1:59.2. Rainbow Gold nabbed third prize in the six-horse affair.

Sent off at odds of 11-1, the gelding bumped his lifetime earnings to $110,696 with the win. MacNaughton owns the 18-time winner.
