Trois-Rivieres, QC - The eighth race Preferred Pace at the Hippodrome 3R was anything but dull for the harness racing fans Sunday afternoon as two horses making three-wide moves during the race woke the crowd up.

It was Kinnder Jackson and driver Pierre Luc Roy who started off the show, going to the front with Surf Report (Tyler Jones) sitting on their backs to the opening quarter mile in :27.

Then at the half mile mark in :56.1., Appleby Hanover (Jocelyn Gendron) came first-over and race favorite Histoire Enchantee (Stephane Gendron) came second-over then three-wide but was unable to clear into first-over position until the three-quarters in 1:25.3 with Kinnder Jackson still on the lead.

Taking up the chase with his own three-wide move coming into the final turn was Hooter Shooter and driver Stephane Brosseau. They were able to clear on by both Histoire Enchantee and Kinnder Jackson to take command of the race.

In the stretch, Hooter Shooter was then challenged late by Surf Report, but held on for the win by a half length in 1:55.4. GA Speed Gaby (Francis Picard) was third.

It was the fastest mile of the afternoon race card as Hooter Shooter, a six-year-old gelded son of Badlands Hanover, posted his eighth win of the year. He is owned and trained by Marc Andre Simoneau and paid $11.50 to win.

In the sixth race featured trot it was all Kinderunbelievable and driver Pierre Luc Roy.

The Breeders Cup Champion filly by Archangel was sent to the front by Roy over Cor Leo (Stephane Gendron) at the opening quarter mile and then led the field the rest of the one-mile trot. Kinderunbelievable held the field at bay and went on to win by three and one-quarter lengths in 2:01.

Cor Leo was second with a late closing game first-over Chinnys Wings (Stephane Brosseau) finishing third.

It was the fourth win in nine starts this year for Kinderunbelievable. She was bred and is owned and trained by Denitza Petrova of Melbourne. She paid $3.10 to win.

Track Notes: Both Stephane Gendron and Pascal Berube had driving doubles Sunday. Live racing resumes at H3R next Sunday, October 20 with first race post time at 1:00 pm. For full results, entries and more information, visit www.quebecjockeyclub.com.
