Trois-Rivieres, QC - Captuer De Reve, one of the only horses to have won four Quebec Championship Finals, showed his winning form again Friday at the Hippodrome 3R with an easy victory in the Preferred Trot.

Racing over a slow track due to rain with a two second allowance, the seventh race feature started off as expected with race favorite Keepall (Pascal Berube) going out and taking the early lead. He led the field past the opening quarter mile in :29.2 and then the half mile in 1:00.1 before Bucketlist Hanover (Jocelyn Gendron) came first-over with Capteur De Reve following the outside flow second-over.

Then before the three-quarters in 1:29.3, Gendron took Capteur De Reve three-wide and they were able to clear Bucketlist Hanover and come after Keepall.

As they started down the stretch, Capteur De Reve proved to be too much for Keepall as he went on to win by one and one-quarter lengths in 2:00.1. Keepall was second with Precieuse CC (Claude Beausoleil) third after sitting the two-hole trip.

It was the fourth win this year for Capteur De Reve. The six-year-old gelded son of Muscle Mass. He is trained by Maxime Velaye for owner-breeder Provoquante Stable of Mirabel. He paid $6.30 to win.

Track Notes: Driver Stephane Brosseau had a driving triple and trainer Carl Duguay a training double on Friday. Live racing resumes at H3R on Sunday with post time at 1:00 pm. Featured will be the annual Lucien Bombardier Memorial Pace for two-year-old fillies. Bombardier was a pioneer of harness racing in not only Quebec, but all of Canada. The purse is $33,800 and the stake is co-sponsored by Standardbred Canada. Headlining the field is Game Of Shadows (post 4) in the seventh race. She is co-owned by Louis-Philippe Roy, who will be driving in most of the 11 races Sunday. For a free race program, visit
