Plea Bargain took the fastest of three $8,300 Bob Dewar Memorial Stake divisions for three-year-old pacing colts this evening at Summerside Raceway after making a three-wide move at the third quarter pole.

Gilles Barrieau notched his third win on the card aboard the son of Quick Comeback. Plea Bargain, who is trained by Barrieau, got away sixth as Ride The Lightning (Danny Romo) set the pace. After a :28.1 opening panel, Plea Bargain followed the cover of the favourite, Absolom (Phil Pinkney), through a :57.2 half. As the field approached the third quarter station in 1:27.3, Plea Bargain made his winning move, pacing home in 1:58.1.

Driver Kenny Arsenault scored a driving double aboard Bo Butler and Ricarras Sun in their respective divisions.
