Trois-Rivieres, QC - A sloppy, rain-soaked track did not discourage Capteur De Reve from leading start to finish in the Preferred Trot at the Hippodrome 3R Sunday.

Despite a four second allowance due to poor track conditions, Capteur De Reve and driver Stephane Gendron left from post one in the third race feature and was able to parked out Volare (Tyler Jones) to the opening quarter.

Tried as he did to get to the lead, Volare broke stride and had to be taken back to last place.

As the field came to the half mile marker, Capteur De Reve was comfortably on the lead with Missionoftheheart (Jocelyn Gendron) sitting on their back in second place. It was then that driver Francis Picard moved Seeyou Men first-over and began to gain ground on Capteur De Reve as they approached the three-quarters.

Tried as he did, Seeyou Men could not collar Capteur De Reve as those two fought down the stretch with Capteur De Reve winning by three-quarters of a length in 2:03.1. Missionoftheheart was third.

It was the sixth win this season for Capteur De Reve. The five-year-old gelding by Muscle Mass is the only trotter ever to win four Quebec-Bred Championships. He is trained by Maxime Velaye for the Provoquante Stable of Mirabel, who also bred the horse. He paid $2.70 to win.

Talbotcreek Suzie ($5.10) was able to win the ninth race Preferred 3 Trot for driver Pascal Berube, who ended the day with two wins as did driver Tyler Jones.

TRACK NOTES: Live racing resumes at H3R next Sunday, October 3 starting at 1:00 pm. This will be the second to last race day at H3R this season. For more information, race results, free programs and more, visit www.quebecjockeyclub.com.
