Cal Expo: Shelly Goudreau, Robert Gordon finals on tap
Shelly Goudreau, Robert Gordon finals on tap
By Mark Ratzky, publicity – Cal Expo Harness
The $10,200 Robert Gordon final headed by Mystery Dragon and Major Jesse and the $9,000 Shelly Goudreau final featuring Lucky Ivan and Cantholdmeback highlight Saturday night’s action at Cal Expo.
There will be 12 races on the evening under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post set for 6:10 p.m.
Mystery Dragon and Major Jessie captured last weekend’s Gordon eliminations with identical 1:54 2/5 clocking with James Kennedy in the sulky for both scores. Mystery Dragon went off at 4-1 in his heat, while Major Jessie returned $27 to his backers.
Mystery Dragon is a newly turned 4-year-old son of Mystery Chase who is owned and trained by Richard Schneider. He has accounted for four of his seven appearances at this meeting and did the stalk-and-pounce to perfection in last Saturday’s score that saw him prevailing by a length and a half.
Major Jesse is by Art Major out of the Bettor’s Delight mare Hannah Isabel who goes about his business for Ronald Rettig-Zucchi with Jessie Pacheco the conditioner. He was able to work out a perfect pocket trip in last week’s decision with the 1:54 2/5 tour being a new lifetime standard.
Looking at the Goudreau final, Lucky Ivan and Cantholdmeback were victorious in their elimination races and Luke Plano was at the helm for those scores.. Both pacers went off favored in their respective contests.
Lucky Ivan is owned and trained by Rick Bertrand and equaled his career mark with the 1:54 2/5 decision, while Cantholdmeback is owned and trained by Jessie Pacheco and will be gunning for his fourth victory from his last six trips to the post.
