Trainer Rene Allard will have power in numbers for this year’s Sobey’s Gold Cup & Saucer thanks in part to Go Daddy Go’s score in Trial 2 at the Charlottetown Driving Park.
Go Daddy Go, in rein to Brad Forward, shot to immediate command from Post 4 in the $12,500 tilt, and the four-year-old son of Ponder-Sanfrancine chopped out panels of :27, :55.4 and 1:24. He then used a :28.1 closing quarter to fend off the late-driving Limelight Beach by a half-length margin. Alexas Jackpot and Paparazzi Hanover, were third and fourth, respectively.
Sent off as the 6-5 favourite, Go Daddy Go will join stablemates YS Lotus and Shades Of Bay, who were first and second in Trial 1 this past Saturday, in Saturday’s Sobey’s Gold Cup & Saucer.
The OSS graduate is a five-time winner from 17 trips postward this season. The 16-time winner, who is owned by Yves Sarrazin of La Presentation, QC, has banked $176,919 to date.
