Rideau Carleton Raceway featured two $13,400 Preferred events on Thursday and driver Gord Brown had a standout night with five wins including one in the pacing division with Priceless Edition.

In the Preferred Pace, Kublai Pan (Gilles Dion) nosed out the first quarter panel in :28.1, as Priceless Edition (Gord Brown) sat in the four-hole, but Match Bayama (John MacDonald) had his sights set on the front. He overtook the early pacesetter and posted the half in :57.2.

Brown and Priceless Edition tipped out en route to the third quarter pole in 1:25.4. The post time favourite dug in for the win by a neck over Match Bayama in 1:54.2. Kublai Pan stayed for third.

Priceless Edition is a four-year-old gelding out of Real Desire. The Mark Steacy trainee, who has banked $288,467 for Peter Heffering of Port Perry, Ont., picked up his second consecutive win in the preferred event and 19th lifetime score.

The win for Brown was one of five that he picked up on the 15-race card. Three of those wins came aboard pupils of Mark Winacott.

Rideau also featured a $13,400 Preferred Trot and Gutsy Volo notched his fourth consecutive victory in rein to trainer Bob Robinson.

The four-year-old gelding out of Yankee Glide cleared the front after the first quarter pole in :29.3. He posted panels of :59.3 and 1:29.2 before putting in a :29.2 final quarter effort for the win in 1:58.4. Norway No Day (Yves Filion) closed for second and Lance Hall (Darrell Coville) got third.

The winner of 16 races has amassed $84,530 in earnings for owners Brian Cassell of Ottawa, Jacqueline Dinelle of Metcalfe and Sean Hibbert of Corbyville, Ont.
